Grinding Halt: Germany’s Wind Industry Faces Armageddon As Turbine Running Costs Escalate

Thousands of Germany’s wind turbines have reached the end of their economic lives; and replacing them is no simple matter. First, the costs of doing so are colossal. Secondly, the behemoths that might replace their ancestors are so large as to exceed the height limits placed on turbines by Germany’s planning rules. Pierre Gosselin can […]

Intermittent Wind Power Simply Can’t Match Ever-Reliable Steam Power – It Never Has & Never Will

Wind power acolytes are a strange bunch; bereft of reason and logic and completely out of touch with the history of human development. Modern, civilised society critically depends on having affordable electricity, available around-the-clock, whatever the weather. Successfully harnessing thermal power was the technical breakthrough that literally sparked the Industrial Revolution. Millions were dragged out […]

Norway’s Reindeer Farmers Sue Swedish-German Wind Power Outfit To Save Their Herd

Rural communities are sick and tired of becoming roadkill for the wind industry, and that includes the nomadic Sami – who graze and herd reindeer across northern Europe’s frozen tundra, ranging across the north of Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Kola Peninsula. The fact that chaotically intermittent wind power can’t be delivered as and when […]

Full-Steam Ahead: Nuclear Power’s Exponential Growth In Power Hungry China

No country serious about growth, industry and jobs is seriously relying on wind and solar power. China is building coal-fired power plants, hand over fist. And its efforts to build nuclear-powered plants are on the same trajectory. China Plans To Dominate The Global Nuclear Energy Push Oil Price Haley Zaremba 3 June 2020 China has […]

Barking Mad: Germany’s Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Built on Grand ‘Green’ Delusions

  Renewables zealots tout Germany as the benchmark for the ‘inevitable transition’ to wind and solar, but its energy system is a complete debacle. Germany’s so-called Energiewende (energy transition) has turned into a power pricing and supply calamity. Which was as perfectly predictable as it was perfectly avoidable. Germany’s obsession with intermittent wind and solar […]

Zero Return: Intermittent Wind & Solar Devour More Energy Than They Can Ever Return

Sunset and calm weather have been with us since the dawn of time; wind and solar power have existed for barely a generation, and only as a result of massive subsidies. The notion that modern economies can operate around the vagaries of the weather and time of day is, of course, patent nonsense. The factory […]

Woeful Wind: New Data Shows Wind Power Output Is Pathetic Across UK & Europe

Adding wind power generating capacity is one occasion when ‘more’, truly means ‘less’. No matter how much of other people’s money gets spent spearing wind turbines all over the countryside, the result is the same: whether it’s 10,000 or 100,000 MW of available wind power capacity, when calm weather sets in, the combined output adds […]

The ‘Unreliables’: Europe’s Power Grid Under Threat from Chaotic Wind & Solar

  Germany may have led the charge, but other European states merrily followed its suicidal attempt to run on sunshine and breezes. The results have been an unmitigated disaster. Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie: Renewable Energy […]

Doomsday Fatigue: Corona-Mania Leaves Climate Change Hysteria For Dead

COVID-19 has spread its share of misery, made all the worse by the doomsday cult that cry ‘apocalypse’ at every challenge humanity faces. This is the same class of character who, barely weeks ago, were dressing up like goblins and gluing themselves to the roads in order to save us from, you guessed it, the […]

German Resistance: Furious Rural Residents Bring Wind Farm Construction to Dead Halt

Much to the horror of wind power promoters, all eyes are on Germany at the minute, with its wind industry in freefall, turbine manufacturers in ruin and rural residents in revolt. In 2019 less than 200 turbines were erected onshore [a figure of 325 is given below which apparently includes offshore turbines] and a trifling […]
