Zero Sum Game: Nothing Renewable About Mineral & Energy-Hungry Wind & Solar

Wistful children playing in flowery fields beneath fleets of whirling wonders is how the wind industry sells itself. The reality ain’t so pretty. Embedded in every 300 tonne juggernaut is a bevy of minerals and a mountain of energy used to create the feelgood fiction that the kiddies are safely frolicking beneath a truly useful […]

Unwelcome ‘Treat’: Tonnes of Toxic Solar Panels Already Headed For A Landfill Near You

Solar panels were meant to be all sunshine and lollipops, with nothing but tingly virtuous feelings for their subsidised owners. With an effective economic lifespan of little more than a decade – after 12 years in service their output is nothing like their original capacity and at the 15-year mark, it becomes a pointless fraction, […]

No Upside: Wind Developers Pull Plug On Massive Offshore Projects Deemed ‘Uneconomic’

Some of America’s biggest planned offshore wind projects have recently been axed, with more to follow. Deemed ‘uneconomic’, potential investors and financiers are running a mile from what portend to be enormous white elephants. Where the true cost of onshore wind power is phenomenal, the cost of the offshore stuff is astronomical. Going offshore brings […]

‘Clean’ Energy Scourge: Wind Turbine Blades Shedding Tonnes of Toxic Microplastics

Sure, the millions of wind turbine blades headed for landfill will leave a toxic legacy for centuries to come, but these things create an even more immediate threat. Their 40-90m blades naturally erode during operation, spreading tonnes of microplastics far and wide. The epoxy compounds they shed contain toxins that are finding their way into […]

Enviro-Imposters: Why There’s Nothing Green About Intermittent Wind & Solar Power

Spreading millions of solar panels and spearing thousands of wind turbines far and wide doesn’t make sense, at any level. Intermittent and diffuse energy sources do not represent progress in the state of human affairs; that was the way of the world pre-Industrial Revolution – science, enterprise and engineering made all that a part of […]

Just Another Billionaire Hypocrite: Australia’s Twiggy Forrest Committed Andean Condor Killer

Blowhard billionaires eager to squander taxpayer’s money are a dime a dozen, hypocrites like Australia’s Twiggy Forrest, who made his $billions from digging up large parts of Western Australia and selling it to the Chinese, among others. Buoyed by record iron ore prices and rising demand, his ambitions have turned to the renewable energy scam, […]

‘Green’ Fraud: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Devouring The Planet’s Scarce Resources

Rent-seekers and the MSM keep telling us the transition to an all-wind and sun-powered future is not only inevitable, it’s a cinch. The power pricing and supply calamity playing out in renewables-obsessed Germany and Britain stands as a pretty fair counterpoint, to that nonsense. Then, we’re told, it can all be done, provided it’s “done […]

No New Green Deal: Nothing Environmentally Friendly About Wind & Solar

Cultists couldn’t care less about the environmental destruction that both wind and solar leave in their wake, merrily ignoring the thousands of wind turbine blades and millions solar panels already being dumped in landfills. Apparently, their mountainous toxic waste legacy will be something for future generations to deal with. The same characters vilify fossil fuels […]

State Sanctioned Slaughter: Wind Farm Operator Gets Licence to Kill Rare & Endangered Bats

The wind power cult have no difficulty in justifying the destruction of pristine landscapes; the dismemberment of once cohesive, rural communities; the creation of toxic waste lands in China (where the rare earths essential to wind turbines are processed); crushing power prices that punish the poorest and most vulnerable in society; and barely shrug at the slaughter […]

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 […]
