Wind Industry Free-Fall: Subsidy Cuts Slashes Wind Power Investment & ‘Green’ Jobs

  Cut subsidies to wind and solar and their ‘industries’ disappear in a heartbeat. Across Europe the subsidies have been slashed and so too has wind power investment and thousands of groovy ‘green’ jobs. Twelve countries in the European Union (EU) failed to install “a single wind turbine” last year. And, as a result, the manufacturers […]

Callous Carnage: Wind Industry Slicing & Dicing Threatened Bird & Bat Species With Impunity

The latest meme amongst climate alarmists is that the rate of species extinction is running rampantly out-of-control. So dire are the warnings that, if they materialise, we’ll be lucky if we get to spot any kind of critter crawling the earth, in a decade or two. However, there wouldn’t be much sport in criticising hysterical […]

Game Over: Europe’s Great Renewables Rush Faces Armageddon

Death and taxes are certainties, so is the fact that wind and solar investment disappears just as soon the subsidies are cut. Without massive (and seemingly endless) subsidies we wouldn’t be having this conversation: there would have been no such thing as wind and solar power, on any scale, or at all. Twelve countries in […]

Busted Bugs: German Wind Turbines Demolishing 1,200 Tonnes of Insects Each Year

Giant industrial wind turbines represent an existential threat to birds, bats, bees and a veritable host of other insect species. For just about anything on the wing, their 50-60m blades represent the end of the line. And the carnage is measured in the thousands of tonnes. A few weeks back we covered some German research […]

Swedish Shutdown: Shift from Ever-Reliable Nuclear to Never-Reliable Wind Leaves Swedes Scrambling for Power

Attempting to replace always-on nuclear with weather-dependent wind power was always going to end in tears. Sweden – renowned for cheerful pop groups like Abba, Vogue-ish furniture and meatballs – has been hijacked by maniacs who’ve resolved to wind down its enviable nuclear power generation capacity, claiming it can be readily replaced with the chaotic […]

Irony Overdrive: Climate Alarmists Hate Burning Coal But Love Burning Up Entire Forests

  Now that climate alarmists have hijacked energy policy, insanity is generally the order of the day. Claiming that, one day soon, we’ll all be powered by sunshine and breezes is just the beginning. On the one hand, zealots fly into an apoplectic rage when anyone mentions the prospect of using what were once ancient […]

‘Clean’ Energy Kaput: Germany’s ‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ An Inevitable & Total Failure

Germany is the world leader when it comes to wind and solar and worth following, if you’re keen to return to the Dark Ages. Germans suffer Europe’s highest power prices – right up there with wind ‘powered’ Denmark and just behind South Australia, Australia’s wind and solar capital – which tops the list. Its so-called […]
