Europe’s Wind & Solar Dependent States Scramble To Secure Reliable Supplies

Every country in Europe that hitched its hopes to sunshine and breezes is now in a mad scramble to secure reliable power supplies, before winter starts to bite and demand soars. Watching the debacle playing out across Europe, is a little like the old party game of musical chairs. Every time the music stops at […]

Europe’s Wind & Solar Disaster Heralds Nuclear Power’s New Beginning

Like planting trees, the best time to build nuclear power plants was 20 years ago, the next best time is right now. Before climate cultists started demonising coal-fired power, the world was awash in reliable and affordable electricity. Now, however, the crowd that berates us about human-generated carbon dioxide gas are hellbent on destroying coal […]

Fired-Up: Global Demand For Coal Defies Wind & Sun Cult’s Predictions of Doom

World energy markets keep defying the wind and solar cult’s prediction that coal’s days are over. The meme has it that ‘coal is dead’, but in reality it hasn’t suffered so much as a flesh wound. Indeed, thermal coal prices are off the charts, with record demand driving record prices: Australian thermal coal prices hit $US$400 […]

Renewables Regret: Power-Starved Europeans Rue Their Governments’ Wind & Solar Obsession

Eating cold baked beans in the dark might not be everyone’s idea of fun, but power-starved Europeans are getting used to that kind of indignity. German households and businesses are already suffering Europe’s highest power prices; since Putin’s Ukrainian adventure began, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per […]

Nuclear Renaissance Heralds Immortal Age of Safe, Reliable & Affordable Power

Nuclear power isn’t expensive: the nuclear-powered French pay around half what wind and solar-powered Danes and Germans do (see above). And the French don’t suffer the power rationing and blackouts their German neighbours do, when the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. Indeed, it’s nuclear power from France and coal-fired power from Poland that […]

French Method: China & Japan Follow French Lead On Nuclear Power Generation Renaissance

Nuclear power generation is back with a vengeance for two reasons: the evident nonsense of relying upon sunshine and breezes for reliable power; and the political desire to reduce carbon oxide gas emissions. True it is that even Germany’s Greens have dropped their CO2 emission reduction ambitions, but here in Australia the suicidal desire to […]

Nuclear Power: Perfect Cure For Wind & Solar Driven Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s power market is in a diabolical mess: massive subsidies to intermittent wind and solar have undermined reliable and affordable power supplies, sending Germany and Denmark’s power prices through the roof (see above). Since Vladimir Putin’s adventure in Ukraine, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per kWh. […]

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 […]

No Brainer: Any Serious World Power Is Absolutely Serious About Nuclear Power

China and Russia are serious world powers, which is why they are absolutely serious about nuclear power. No country ever deprived itself of reliable and affordable energy and went on to become a world player. Which is why the CCP and Vlad Putin can’t believe their luck with hitherto Western powers doing just that. True […]

Gas Blow Out: Vlad’s Invasion Exposes European Renewable Energy Policy Insanity

You know it’s a cult when innocents are being wiped out by shells and missiles and they’re fretting that we’ll lose our focus on the weather, as a result. As Russian tanks began shelling family homes across Ukraine, missiles struck home and air raid sirens screamed over Kyiv, John Kerry worried that Vlad’s westward expansion […]
