Electric Dreams: Why We Can Never Run Exclusively On Wind & Solar Power

The next ‘big thing’ is an all-electric world, where power caressed from sunshine and breezes will provide all the energy, we ever need, for everything we ever do. Given the tag ‘electrification’, it sounds like another simple wheeze that only requires an open mind and a little goodwill. Well, like the grand wind and solar […]

Power Prices: With Wind & Solar Obsession – The Only Way Is Up and Up and Up

Rocketing power prices is one inevitable consequence of the so-called ‘inevitable’ wind and solar transition. Germans know it, so do Californians, South Australians and Danes. Brits are learning fast, too. Of course, the propaganda units that run cover for renewable energy rent seekers pretend otherwise. Francis Menton wades through their dross to reveal what Europe’s […]

Vlad’s Victory: Europe Losing Energy War Thanks to Wind & Solar Obsession

Many a defeat is the product of a grand delusion; Europe’s obsession with wind and solar is just another example. Beaten by Vlad Putin’s ability to restrict the gas it needs to run fast-start-up gas peaking plants (essential to cover rapid and unpredictable collapses in wind output and rapid and wholly predictable collapses in solar […]

Grand ‘Renewables’ Delusion: Hard Reality Keeps Smashing Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Myth

Zealots tout Germany as the benchmark for the ‘inevitable transition’ to wind and solar, but its energy system is a complete debacle; power rationing is the new normal and prices are through the roof. Indeed, any country that got serious about subsidising wind and solar is finding itself in serious trouble. Disastrous examples such as […]

‘Green’ Energy Fantasy Unravels As Reality Grips Wind & Solar Obsessed Europe

What’s dressed up as “progress” these days increasingly looks and sounds like a drift back to our Dark Age of misery, poverty and ignorance. Anyone who still thinks wind turbines and solar panels equate with Earthly salvation, is more than just a little confused. But that’s the very point and purpose of those pushing the […]

Why Weather-Dependent Wind & Solar Transition Will Inevitably Fail

Spoiler alert: the reason the wind and solar transition must fail is calm weather and sunset. So much, so simple and obvious. No country has ever powered itself entirely on wind and solar; no country ever will.  Anyone telling you otherwise, is either a lunatic or they’re in on the greatest economic and environmental fraud, […]

Sun Cult Exuberant Over Brief Moment When Solar Delivered: Then Came Sunset…

  The infantile mentality of the renewables cult is on vivid display when they crow about wind or solar adding something meaningful to the grid. Always brief and fleeting, the 60 minutes when solar or wind did something special, is always trumpeted as if no one else cares about their power needs for the other […]

Utopian Fantasyland: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Total Delusion Being Sold By Total Fools

The West’s obsession with the unreliables, wind and solar was guaranteed to end in tears – the weather-driven power rationing and rocketing power prices were as perfectly predictable, as they were perfectly avoidable. Every country that has hitched its energy future to sunshine and breezes is facing both a power pricing and supply calamity. Wind […]

Renewable Energy Madness: Why Net-Zero CO2 Targets Herald New Miserable Dark Age

Wisdom comes with experience: people soon wise up to the reality of the wind and solar ‘transition’ once they’ve spent time freezing or boiling in the dark. Over time, the experience will be shared by more of our compatriots on planet Earth. Obsessive, indeed maniacal, renewable energy policies are a guarantee of crippling power bills […]

Why Big Batteries Can’t Cure Wind & Solar’s Hopeless Intermittency

Politicos and the MSM are wedded to the myth that mega-batteries are all we need to overcome the chaotic delivery of wind and solar. The addition of which, we are told, is both imminent and cost-free. No country on earth has been able to crack the cost-effective grid-scale storage electricity. The laws of physics are […]
