World’s Woeful Wind Power Output Spells Doom For Renewable Energy Rent Seekers

Don McLean’s American Pie was all about the day the music died; 2021 was all about the year that the wind industry died. Its well-worn claim that wind power is just a heartbeat away from replacing meaningful power sources – such as coal, gas and nuclear – took a battering across the globe last year. […]

Guilty: Intermittent Wind & Solar Responsible For Global Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s ongoing wind drought (and corresponding wind power output collapse) is a wake-up call for anyone vaguely concerned about energy supplies. Starting in September last year and running for weeks on end, total collapses in wind power output across Western Europe and the UK, forced a wholesale rethink of the maniacal reliance upon wind and […]

Rapid RE Retreat: Looming Winter Blackouts Force Greeks to Reignite Coal-Fired Plants

  In the abstract, the ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun-powered future is easy, the kicker comes when reality bites; the sun sets and calm weather sets in. The Greeks, like the Germans, have been talking long and loud about killing off every last one of their coal-fired power plants, denigrating them as […]

Numerical Nonsense: Why The Case For Intermittent Wind Power Never Adds Up

Because every MW of wind power capacity is matched with a MW of reliable coal, gas or nuclear power, the ‘case’ for subsidised wind will never add up Generating electricity 30% of the time – albeit that wind power outfits can never tell you in advance which 30% of the time that might be – […]

Energy Deficient: Wind & Solar Obsessed Germany Faces Long Dark Winter

With another bitter winter biting and suicidal renewable energy policies, Germans are reaping the whirlwind. Suffering Europe’s highest power prices and routine power rationing, is just the beginning. Mass blackouts and deliberate power cuts, like those suffered last winter, are guaranteed. Such is life when you attempt to run on sunshine and breezes. Prof. Fritz […]

Wind Power ‘Droughts’ Mean Nuclear Power Key To Neutralising Net-Zero Madness

Europe’s persistent and ongoing wind drought spells the end for never-reliable wind power and the renaissance of ever-reliable nuclear. As a consequence of the Big Calm and a total collapse in wind power output across Western Europe and the UK, the Brits have now enlisted Rolls Royce to build a fleet of small modular reactors. […]

French Resistance: Couple Collect €100,000 In Damages For Wind Turbine Noise Nuisance

The grinding, thumping cacophony generated by giant industrial wind turbines delivers wholly unnecessary misery worldwide. Sleep deprivation is first among the list of adverse health effects caused by these things and the pulsing low-frequency noise they generate. The wind industry has fought tooth and nail to avoid the consequences of the harm it dishes out, […]

Party’s Over: Unreliable Wind & Solar Ditched In Favour of Ever-Reliable Nuclear & Gas

Once the belles of the ball, wind and solar are being treated like cheap tarts: now it’s nuclear and gas that are attracting all the attention. And it’s all thanks to the massive wind drought – aka the Big Calm – that struck Western Europe in September, and lasted for weeks, sending gas and power […]

Post-Renewables Reality: Nuclear Power Generation Easy Solution For Energy Starved World

Europe’s great wind drought has focused attention on the unassailable fact that wind power is an utterly meaningless power source. The demand for electricity is, always and everywhere, a ‘here and now’ kind of thing. Households and businesses couldn’t care less if there’s a roaring gale and plenty of wind power at 2 in the […]

COP That Wind & Solar: Nuclear Power Drives French Renewables Resistance

The French already get more than 70% of their power from nuclear plants. Now, thanks to a massive month-long wind power output collapse, that proportion is destined to increase. Following Europe’s ‘disastrous’ wind drought – that saw wind power output plummet throughout most of September and into October, and early November – the need for […]
