Total Bunkum: Why Running On 100% Wind & Solar Is 100% Impossible

No country in the world is running on wind and solar power alone; no country ever will. Calm weather and sunset guarantee it. Every routine collapse in wind and solar power output (for the reasons above) requires the total capacity lost in consequence to come from somewhere, and that ‘somewhere’ is going to be a […]

‘Renewables’ Failure Rekindles German Love Affair With Nuclear & Coal-Fired Power

The fact that consumers want power as and when they need it, at prices they can afford, has scuttled Germany’s grand wind and solar ‘transition’. This is one of the stories that the MSM has been running away from for years; since February 22, they’ve been running the meme that it’s all Vlad Putin’s fault. […]

Ever Reliable: Nuclear & Coal-Fired Power Provide Germany’s Only Energy Salvation

Seems like only yesterday that Germany’s grand wind and solar transition was the talk of the town. Dubbed the “Energiewende”, it was meant to spell an inevitable end to nuclear and coal-fired power, which would soon be replaced by nothing other than forests of wind turbines and seas of solar panels. Well, that was what […]

Reliable & Affordable Energy Is Life Itself: Why Wind & Solar Are Making Us All Worse Off

Deprive a well-fed Westerner of energy for more than a few hours and you’ll get their attention. The reliable and affordable power supplies that we’ve taken for granted were built up over a century. A raft of suicidal energy policies introduced in the last 20 years will have them destroyed before this decade is out. […]

Mission Critical: Coal-Fired Power Central to China & India’s Growing Economic Fortunes

China and India clearly didn’t get the memo that reckons coal-fired power is dead. Both are determined to drag their people out of agrarian poverty and both know precisely how to do it: cheap and reliable coal-fired power. Building new plants at a rate that incenses the climate cult intelligentsia, both countries have no interest […]

New Anti-Fossil Fuel Puritans Set New Standard in Blatant Ignorance & Gross Hypocrisy

If it looks and sounds like a deranged cult, it probably is. The latest wheeze is pretending that functional, civil societies can live without coal, oil and gas. It’s perfect nonsense, to be sure, and symptomatic of an uneducated cohort who haven’t the faintest idea about what makes their safe and utterly privileged little lives […]

Want Cheap & Reliable Power? Then Stop Voting for Deluded RE Obsessed Lunatics

Voters get the governments are to serve, so it’s said, which means that sympathy for their current energy woes runs thin. Voters who walked into a booth thinking they would save the planet by backing candidates and parties who promised to go all in on the grand wind and solar ‘transition’, might be suffering a […]

Gas Demand Driven By Need to ‘Back Up’ Wind & Solar Using Fast-Start Gas Turbines

Before the obsession with intermittent wind and solar took hold, gas was rarely used to generate electricity if coal, nuclear or hydro sources were available. Gas-fired electricity, in the main, was simply too expensive, by comparison with coal-fired power. Coal-fired generators are designed to run around-the-clock. Wind turbines and solar panels only run according to […]

Highway to Hell: World’s Big Banks Baulk at Suicidal Net-Zero Emissions Pathway

The big-money has just worked out that going ‘woke’ means going broke. Sure, a little cynical greenwashing doesn’t hurt corporate reputation with the MSM and Twitterati, but shareholders and markets tend to take a sterner view. Financiers were among the first to sign up to models which limited their finance to fossil fuel producers and […]

No New Green Deal: Nothing Environmentally Friendly About Wind & Solar

Cultists couldn’t care less about the environmental destruction that both wind and solar leave in their wake, merrily ignoring the thousands of wind turbine blades and millions solar panels already being dumped in landfills. Apparently, their mountainous toxic waste legacy will be something for future generations to deal with. The same characters vilify fossil fuels […]
