Regressive Renewables: California’s Wind & Solar Obsession Crushing the Poor & Vulnerable

Californian punk outfit, the Dead Kennedys sang about killing the poor. California’s renewables obsession is doing just that: power prices are now well out of reach for the working poor and its minorities are most affected. Over the last 20 years, Californian policymakers have shovelled billions in subsidies to intermittent wind and solar. The result: […]

Why Subsidising Intermittent Wind & Solar Drives Power Prices Through the Roof

Perplexed as to why your power bill just doubled? Then you’ll be pleased to know the answer is simple: massively subsidised wind and solar. Statisticians get excited when they can prove causation instead of mere correlation, which often depends upon the number of observations of a particular event of interest. With dozens of countries and […]

Unaffordable At Any Price: Why Biden’s ‘Green’ New Deal Will Bankrupt America

Joe Biden and his Squad are trying to convince the American people that their ‘Green’ New Deal will deliver an economic Nirvana, for all and sundry. Which begs the question: if every place in the world that’s adopted subsidised wind and solar ends up suffering rocketing power prices and an unreliable supply, why would the […]

Net-Zero Hero: Climate Bureaucrat Busted For Revealing State’s ‘Kill the Poor’ Energy Policy

Not content with depriving the poor of electricity, the climate-industrial complex is determined to “break their will” to heat their hovels and drive their beat up Chevies. Apparently, the punishment meted out by renewables driven power price hikes wasn’t enough to break their selfish mettle. Massachusetts Governor, Charlie Baker is a card-carrying member of the […]

Monstrous Morality: ‘Progressives’ Love Costly & Unreliable Wind & Solar But Detest The Poor

So-called ‘progressives’ are long on moral posturing, but short on human compassion. Enamoured with costly wind and solar, and determined to outlaw every last reliable power source, they couldn’t care less about the inevitable spike in power prices that follows, that disproportionately punishes the least fortunate souls among us. Letting granny freeze in the dark […]

Power Pact: Renewable Energy Rent Seekers Get the Gold; The Poor Get the Stick

Government mandated subsidies for wind and solar represent the greatest wealth transfer since England’s ‘Bad’ King John sought to tax himself to ultimate power and his enemies out of existence. His description as “avaricious, miserly, extortionate and moneyminded” applies with equal force to today’s crony capitalist kings – the renewable energy rent seekers. Had King […]

Hidden Cost of Solar: Sunset Delivers Power Price Surge As Governments Dictate Household Power Use

Hereafter, the lights will go on during the day and off after sunset. In the ‘even the Soviets couldn’t have dreamt this up’ category sits a plan to force households to use power when they simply do not need it. Backed by the Federal government’s Small Scale Renewable Energy Scheme – which delivers taxpayer funded […]

RE Reckoning: Germans Suffer Europe’s Highest Power Prices – 300,000 Families Can’t Afford Electricity

  If ever there was an example of what follows from an obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar, Germany has to be it. No country went harder or faster than Germany did, when it came to carpeting its landscape with solar panels and wind turbines. The results have been an unmitigated disaster. In the […]

Intermittent, Diffuse & Costly: Why Wind & Solar Can Never Power This Planet

The key to wealth and prosperity is reliable and affordable energy. Which is why the ‘unreliables’, wind and solar threaten both wealth and prosperity (except, of course, those wallowing in the obscene and seemingly endless subsidies paid to the owners of windmills and solar panels). Dr. Lars Schernikau, born and raised in Berlin, Germany studied […]

Doomsday Prepping: Americans Told to Give Up ‘Selfish’ Demand for Constant Electricity

Wind and solar ‘powered’ Californians and South Australians know what it is to have their power cut when the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. Mass blackouts and load shedding are part and parcel of our inevitable transition to an all wind and sun powered future. But now we are told, that none of […]
