Worthless Wind & Solar: Once Again Output Totally Collapses During Freezing Weather

Keen to survive when dead-calm, freezing weather sets in? You’d better have access to nuclear or fossil-fuelled power sources, simply because wind and solar generators are bound to deliver absolutely nothing, at all. Texans and Germans know all about it. Now, Canadians are getting a taste of what it is when you pin your daily […]

Crippling Cost of Ontario’s Obsession With Wind Power: 71% Increase in Power Bills

Ontario’s government determined to eliminate coal-fired power in the deluded belief that wind power would soon replace it. The result, as the protesters above predicted, has been an unmitigated economic disaster. Power prices in the Province have spiralled out of control, as a direct result of its suicidal energy policy. Thousands of jobs have been […]

Banquet of Consequences: Time to Force Wind & Solar Worshippers to Rely Exclusively on Sunshine & Breezes

Anyone railing against nuclear, coal or gas-fired power hasn’t been forced to rely exclusively on hopelessly unreliable wind and solar. The anti-fossil fuel crowd are, of course, hypocritical and the anti-CO2/anti-nuclear mob are the most hypocritical of all. For those claiming they’re quite happy to do without coal and gas, wait till one of their […]

Decade of Despair: Counting Staggering Cost of Ontario’s Wind Power Disaster

It took Ontario’s Green-left lunatics less than a decade to destroy its once reliable and eminently affordable power supply. It was deliberate, it was malicious and it was, in economy wrecking terms, very effective. Dressed up under the guise of its Green Energy Act, the mandated targets for, and preferential treatment of, wind power, the […]

Reality Check: Green Energy Fantasies Threaten Post COVID Economic Recovery

There’s debate over which did more harm: the coronavirus or government policy responses to it. But there’s no argument that our economic recovery requires reliable and affordable electricity. Which means that the current arguments about recharging economies using heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar are as dangerous as they are delusional. Ross McKitrick […]

No Contest: Never-Reliable Wind & Solar Can Never Match Ever-Reliable Nuclear

Wind power might be ‘free’, but try purchasing it, at any price, when the wind stops blowing; likewise with solar power when the sun drops over the horizon. Comparing weather dependent wind generation with sources available, around-the-clock, irrespective of the weather, is a game played by intellectual pygmies. There is, of course, no comparison. Good […]

New Study Finds Wind Turbine Noise Driving Neighbours From Their Homes

  What wind farm neighbours have to tolerate is nothing short of criminal: incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound drives neighbours nuts and, where they have the option, out of their homes altogether. The most common adverse health effect caused by wind turbine noise emissions is sleep deprivation, which brings with it a grab […]

Lying To Survive: Desperate Wind Industry Claims That Wind Power’s Both Reliable & Cheap Busted (Again)

The wind industry was built on lies and runs on subsidies. Spin doctors, practised in the fine art of deception, have been gainfully employed for almost 30 years in an effort to turn night into day, in order to keep the subsidies coming and to prevent them from ever being cut. Politicians and a gullible […]

Ontario’s Salvation: Locals Ecstatic Over Decision to Cancel 750 Wind Power Contracts

The decision to cancel 750 government contracts with wind power developers in Ontario has left rent seekers furious, and wondering where their next meal might come from? Doug Ford’s eminently sensible decision will avoid thousands more of these things being speared across Ontario’s rural heartland, much to the delight of Ontario’s farmers. Not to mention […]

Billion Dollar Boondoggle: Plans to Take Canada’s Wind Power Disaster West to Alberta

Canada’s wind power obsession has seen Ontario’s fertile farmland turned into an industrial wasteland. It’s been a disaster, for all concerned: power prices have rocketed, energy dependent industries are being crushed and Ontario’s farming families have had to deal with toxic groundwater, contaminated by wind turbine construction. Countless hundreds have abandoned their homes and hundreds […]
