Wrecking Ball: Net Zero CO2 Emissions Targets Guarantee Economic Armageddon

Driven by climate alarmists and rent seekers ready to profit from the wind and solar subsidy scam, net zero carbon dioxide emissions targets are just the latest woke wheeze to grip our political betters. The idea that modern economies can function without the energy generated by fossil-fuels (whether consumed by motorcars or in power generation) […]

Total Flop: Nothing ‘Inevitable’ About So-called ‘Transition’ to Wind & Solar

A mixture of wishful thinking and childish pipedreams, there’s nothing inevitable about the so-called ‘transition’ to wind and solar – Sunset remains a fixed feature of daily life, as does stubbornly calm weather. But the acolyte and rent seeker would have us believe that these natural phenomena are either trivial obstacles to be overcome – […]

Wind & Solar Subsidies: High Time To End The Never-Ending Story of Wasted $Billions

Death and taxes are certainties, so too the wind and solar industry’s critical dependence on massive and endless subsidies. Those pushing wind and solar keep telling us that the power they produce is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time. Every so often, rent seekers and their political enablers are faced with the retort that, […]

How Big Banks Conspire to Wreck Reliable & Affordable Energy Supplies

That the big end of town is keen to profit from the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time, is no secret. Banks have been attempting to wreck reliable and affordable power supplies, for the best part of 20 years, dressing it up as “corporate social responsibility”. There’s nothing moral about it; it’s all […]

Game Over: Vlad Putin’s Ukrainian Invasion Spells The End For ‘Green’ Energy Dream

All of a sudden, energy security and affordability is the new black. The Russian onslaught in Ukraine has focused thinking on energy supplies, like nothing before. The West has taken its energy advantages for granted, for far too long. But, the energy pricing and supply calamity that’s followed Vlad’s aggressive bid for territorial expansion, has […]

Apologise Now: West’s Attempt To Rely On Wind & Solar A Monumental Mistake

Anyone who still believes in an ‘inevitable’ transition to wind and solar, clearly hasn’t been paying attention. The same crowd tells us that ‘coal is dead’, ignoring the fact that coal demand continues to rise and the record prices paid for the black stuff is through the roof. The Russian advance on Ukraine has only […]

The Great Green Lie: Wind & Solar Aren’t Saving The Planet, They’re Wrecking It

The idea that unreliable wind and solar can save the planet is one of the greatest lies, ever told. In touting their purported environmental credentials, the crony capitalists, rent-seekers and fawning advocates never take into account any of the associated costs. It’s all sunshine and suitably stiff breezes, as far as the wind and sun […]

Destination Devolution: The ‘Green’ Industrial Revolution – A Monstrous Marxist Lie

Believe that we can run on nothing but sunshine and breezes, then you’ll believe anything. No country has ever run itself on wind and solar power, alone. No country ever will. Even mythical mega-batteries can’t change that equation. Only the truly delusional believe that we can eradicate our reliance upon fossil fuels of all descriptions, […]

RE Bites Back: Europe’s Wind Turbine Makers Can’t Compete With Coal-Powered China

Victims of their own success, Europe’s wind turbine makers are being crushed by rocketing power prices – caused by reliance on intermittent wind and solar. Oh, the irony… The staggering surge in European energy costs has rendered them unable to compete with Chinese manufacturers, whose operations benefit from abundant supplies of nuclear and coal-fired power. […]

No Nonsense Solution: Nuclear Ultimate Answer to Powering an Energy Hungry World

Nothing focuses thinking on energy policy like not having heat, light and power on tap. With Europe now hostage to its aggressive Eastern neighbour – thanks to a maniacal obsession with intermittent wind and solar and the need to back it up with oil and gas – policy wonks of all descriptions have started talking […]
