Subsidised Suicide: Wind & Solar Power Chaos Driving Britain’s Rocketing Power Prices

Britain’s power consumers are paying a heavy price for its maniacal obsession with intermittent wind and solar. Trashing its coal-fired power fleet and failing to keep up its nuclear plants now looks positively suicidal. However, of late, the MSM has been dishing up an alternative reality, peddling a line that power prices would be a […]

Real Nowhere Plan: Grand Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Already Doomed to Total Failure

Sound engineering, not ideology sits at the heart of our reliable and affordable power supplies. However, in the veritable blink of an eye, engineers have been given the flick, so too, our good friends logic and reason. Australia might register as geographically significant and claims to be a world player, but still retains the mentality […]

Hard Truths: COP Climate Cult Can’t Deal With Europe’s Monumental Wind & Solar Failure

The truth is hard and sometimes bitter, especially when it destroys everything you’ve believed in, which is why Europe’s grand wind and solar fail has upset the climate cultists who keep screaming that the world is on the brink of imminent self-immolation. The panacea, they say, is more of the very thing that’s destroyed reliable […]

Baseload Basics: Coal-Fired Power Plants Only Thing Guaranteed to Keep Lights On In Australia

Germans soon recognised the importance of their coal-fired power plants, forced to reopen them days after shutting them down in January 2021 because, surprise, surprise, the wind stopped blowing. And that big backpedal occurred long before Vlad Putin began putting the squeeze on the gas supplies needed to prop up those occasions when Germany’s 30,000 […]

Dream On: Finite Mineral Resources Mean Grand Wind & Solar Transition Must Inevitably Fail

As the grand delusion of an all-wind and sun-powered future unravels in Europe, rational thinkers are turning to the insatiable demand for minerals that comes with the ‘inevitable transition’ and pointing out that what’s contemplated is not only impossible, but simply ludicrous. The volumes of high-value minerals such as copper and aluminium required in every […]

Wind & Solar Wipeout: Reliable & Affordable Power Now Part of Ancient History

Pretty soon, the notion of having affordable power available on demand will be ancient history. Never before in the course of human existence have so few done so much damage to so many. Electricity prices are spiralling out of control in any place attempting to run on sunshine and breezes, power rationing (aka ‘demand management’) […]

Small Modular Reaction: Europe’s Wind & Solar Disaster Paves Way For New Nuclear Age

Europe’s energy disaster proves, beyond doubt, that wind and solar are an abject failure, leaving the way clear for nuclear power and any other power generation source that can dish it up, on demand. With numerous operators seeking or obtaining licences to build Small Modular Reactors, and numerous countries signing up to have them, SMRs […]

Reality Collision Course: World Accelerates Towards Subsidised Wind & Solar Trainwreck

Before the wind and sun cult took charge, the power grid was designed and run by engineers – using coal, a little gas, hydro and nuclear (everywhere else in the world except Australia, that is). It ran like clockwork; power was cheap as chips and delivered on demand. Electrical storms were the only thing that […]

Want Cheap & Reliable Power? Then Stop Voting for Deluded RE Obsessed Lunatics

Voters get the governments are to serve, so it’s said, which means that sympathy for their current energy woes runs thin. Voters who walked into a booth thinking they would save the planet by backing candidates and parties who promised to go all in on the grand wind and solar ‘transition’, might be suffering a […]

Gas Demand Driven By Need to ‘Back Up’ Wind & Solar Using Fast-Start Gas Turbines

Before the obsession with intermittent wind and solar took hold, gas was rarely used to generate electricity if coal, nuclear or hydro sources were available. Gas-fired electricity, in the main, was simply too expensive, by comparison with coal-fired power. Coal-fired generators are designed to run around-the-clock. Wind turbines and solar panels only run according to […]
