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 […]

Self-Inflicted Energy Insecurity: Vlad Impales Wind & Solar Obsessed Europe

Like a giant boa constrictor, oil and gas-rich Vlad Putin has a chokehold on wind and solar-obsessed Europe. ‘Green’ policies designed to wipe out reliable and affordable coal and nuclear power plants – on the pretext that they would be replaced by the chaotic output from wind turbines and solar panels – have long been […]

Unreliable Wind & Solar Show Everything Depends On Reliable & Affordable Power Supplies

2021 was the year when the inherent unreliability of wind and solar revealed how everything depends upon reliable and affordable power supplies. The wind and solar ‘industries’ talk a big game; and in their wilder moments even claim to be capable of replacing conventional coal, gas and nuclear generators, altogether. Europe’s months-long wind drought in […]

Wake Up Australia: Ban On Nuclear Power Plants Must Go Right Now

Australia’s legislated ban on nuclear power is beyond embarrassing; it’s positively idiotic. But don’t expect the weak and petty Scott Morrison (Australia’s PM for the time being) or Angus Taylor (his Energy Minister for the time being) to mutter a peep about getting rid of Australia’s most hypocritical and ludicrous energy policy as the next […]

China & Russia Profit From West’s Ludicrous Obsession With Unreliable Wind and Solar

As Germany scrambles to secure the gas needed to prevent their wind and solar ‘powered’ grid from total collapse, Vladimir Putin is laughing all the way to the bank. And the Russians aren’t the only ones profiting from the West’s maniacal obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar. China – with plenty of unwilling assistance […]

Europe’s Self-Inflicted Energy Catastrophe Driven By Hopelessly Unreliable Wind & Solar

Anyone looking for a taste of what the ‘transition’ to wind and solar might look like, need look no further than Europe. The best (worst) examples, Germany and the UK are in the middle of self-inflicted energy debacles, with many of their neighbours not far behind. Mass wind droughts – that lasted months at the […]
