Europe’s Energy Crisis: Counting the Staggering Cost of Subsidising Unreliable Wind & Solar

Adding inherently unreliable and heavily subsidised wind and solar to your grid is a guarantee of rocketing power prices. Every place in the world that got serious about wind and solar is being belted with serious increases in electricity costs. Wind and solar ‘powered’ Germany and wind ‘powered’ Denmark pay Europe’s highest power prices, by […]

Europe’s Wind Industry Faces Total Collapse: No New Wind Farms Built Since 2017

RE zealots tout rapidly increasing wind power capacity as ‘success’. Except, in Europe a dozen countries haven’t erected a single turbine during 2018, and that coincides with a massive slowdown in construction elsewhere. As you tread your way through the following article, be sure to ignore the usual rubbish about this wind farm ‘powering’ hundreds […]

Europe’s Fossil-Fuelled Future: Winter Wind & Solar Collapse Means Coal & Gas Here to Stay

  The zealots that pump up the future for wind and solar power are programed to ignore the present and bound to ignore the past. For a few centuries in human history, windmills were the only game in town. Then, in the 18th Century, the captains of British scientific and engineering endeavour harnessed thermal power, the Industrial […]

Following False Prophets: Why Wind & Solar Can Never Replace Fossil Fuels

Sunset and calm weather mean wind and solar can and will never replace conventional power generators. By ‘conventional’ we mean coal, gas, nuclear and, where geography and geology permit, stored hydro and geothermal power. Show a picture like the one above – the entire output of every wind turbine connected to Australia’s Eastern Grid during […]

Wind & Solar Chaos Leaves Europe’s Power Grid On Brink of Total Collapse

Germany led the way, and others soon followed: erratically delivered wind and solar now dominates Europe’s power grid. Naturally enough, power prices have rocketed and grid managers are left to deal with the chaos delivered by sunset and/or calm weather. Rapid surges and/or collapses in voltage and frequency – consequent upon surges and collapses in […]

Home Wreckers: Finnish Study Finds Wind Turbine Infrasound Unsafe For Residents Living Within 15 Km

The Finns are renowned for their stoicism, but grinding, pulsing wind turbine noise is too much for any sentient being, even the Finnish. The evidence proving the unnecessary damage done to wind farm neighbours by the noise generated by giant industrial wind turbines is mounting by the day: Germany’s Max Planck Institute has identified sub-audible […]

Poles Apart: Polish Government Bans New Wind Farms & All Existing Turbines Gone by 2035

Faced with thousand of furious rural voters sick of being overrun by industrial wind turbines, Poland has effectively banned all new onshore wind farms. The prices fixed for new wind power contracts are so low as to mock hopeful developers, making it highly unlikely that any new contracts will be entered. And, clearly spooked by hostile rural voters, […]
