Weather Wages War on Wind Power: Typhoon Topples Turbine in Japan

How ironic it is that a wholly weather dependent power source has such a bitterly hard time coping with the … ahem … weather. When Hurricane Maria visited Puerto Rico last year, she managed to splatter wind turbine blades all over the island, leaving residents completely powerless: Weather Dependent Wind Power: Leaves Hurricane Victims Powerless […]

Calculated Chaos: Renewable Energy Zealot’s Wind & Solar Plan for California Just Doesn’t Add Up

  Facts, reason and logic have never troubled the true believers in our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future. Trifling matters, like cost and reliability, are dismissed in an instant. The slaughter of millions of birds and bats, swept under the carpet. And the environmental havoc wreaked across countryside carpeted in […]

Renewable Energy’s Dirty Dozen: 12 Reasons Why Chaotically Intermittent & Heavily Subsidised Wind & Solar Power Make No Sense

It takes a special brand of delusion to believe that the world can run on sunshine and breezes. For wind and sun worshippers, disastrous examples like South Australia – where mass blackouts and load shedding have become the new normal – require not just practiced delusion but a form of self-flagellating stoicism, as well. Oh, […]

Germany’s Renewable Energy Disaster – Part 4: ‘Social Disaster’: Wind Turbines Wrecking Rural Communities

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle. German power prices have rocketed; blackouts and load shedding are the norm; and idyllic rural communities are now industrial wastelands (see above). Hundreds of billions of euros have been squandered on subsidies to wind and solar, all in […]

Germany’s Renewable Energy Disaster – Part 2: Wind & Solar Deemed ‘Ecological Disasters’

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle. German power prices have rocketed; blackouts and load shedding are the norm; and its idyllic countryside has been turned into an industrial wasteland, with its forests, no exception (see above). Hundreds of billions of euros have been squandered […]

‘Green’ Vandalism: The Mounting Toll of Wind Industry’s Wave of Ecological Destruction

In 2018, it’s easier to find a deluded wind turbine hugger, than an old-fashioned tree hugger. Michael Shellenberger is regarded as one of America’s leading environmental advocates, but his avowed hatred of subsidised, intermittent and unreliable wind and solar puts him at odds with his contemporaries. To the extent that carbon dioxide gas concerns him, […]

Looking for Reasons Why Wind Power Can Never Work? Here’s the Top 21

It doesn’t take a genius to work out that wind power is the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time. All it takes is a little cognitive power and a sense of inquiry. Once people work out that they’ve been conned, they never turn back. In our travels we’ve met plenty who’ve started out […]
