Wind & Solar Transition Means Transition to Power Rationing & Rocketing Power Bills

When the sun sets and calm weather sets in, wind and solar power can’t be bought at any price. Increase the capacity of the unreliables connected to your grid and get ready for not only rocketing power bills, but routine power rationing. Once upon a time, electricity was cheap and it flowed like running water. […]

No Contest: Coal-Fired Power Outright Winner In Reliable & Affordable Energy Wars

China, India and Indonesia are building hundreds of coal-fired power plants because they deliver electricity all day, every day at prices that everyone can afford. The reason for backing coal-fired power is that simple. And yet thanks to a mixture of mercenary self-interest on the part of renewable energy rent seekers and the wilful ignorance […]

Wind & Solar Industries Outraged: EU Declares Nuclear & Gas Are “Green” Too

Rent-seekers have been telling us that wind and solar will soon not only displace, but entirely replace, our “ageing” coal-fired power plants, knock gas-fired plants out of the ballpark and crush nuclear power plants before they even enter the contest. Such was the hype, anyway. Then came 2021. Massive month-long wind droughts left wind power […]

Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Calamity All Down To Wind & Solar Chaos

  Australia’s unfolding power pricing and supply calamity reveals just how critical our coal-fired power plants are if we want power as and when we need it. Sure, there’s a choice between virtue signalling about your love of wind and solar and visceral hatred of “dirty” coal-fired power. But allow the deluded wind and sun […]

Nuclear Power: Perfect Cure For Wind & Solar Driven Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s power market is in a diabolical mess: massive subsidies to intermittent wind and solar have undermined reliable and affordable power supplies, sending Germany and Denmark’s power prices through the roof (see above). Since Vladimir Putin’s adventure in Ukraine, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per kWh. […]

Dumb & Dumber: Continued Wind & Solar Obsession Defies All Logic & Reason

The renewable energy pit deepens, but there’s no indication the dolts in charge will ever stop digging. The, by now obvious, consequences of attempting to rely on sunshine and breezes include another annual power price increase of over 20% this month and routine power rationing by postcode. In response, there’s a growing groundswell of hostility […]

‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar Transition’s Inevitable Collision Course With Reality

The deluded few still promoting the total transition to wind and solar as ‘inevitable’ are being pounded by reality, on a daily basis. Dead calm weather is a thing; sunset is a thing. Both phenomena are inevitable, ergo, there is no way wind and solar can ever amount to meaningful power sources. Proponents have been […]

Subsidised Wind & Solar Root Cause of Every Power Pricing & Supply Crisis

Germany, Denmark, South Australia, California, the list of places that prove our headline grows by the day. The wind and solar cancer that saw South Australia suffer the country’s only statewide blackout and end up suffering the world’s highest power prices, bar none, quickly spread and has now taken hold across the entire Eastern Grid […]
