Reality Check: Last Chance to Learn From Europe’s Renewable Energy Disaster

Europe is paying the price for its suicidal obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar. The power pricing and supply calamity that’s hit Germany and others was as perfectly predictable as it was perfectly avoidable. Power prices are out of control and weather-driven power rationing is the new normal. The Germans once had heroic plans […]

Transition to Bankruptcy: Europe’s Wind Turbine Makers Face Massive Financial Collapse

Europe’s wind turbine makers are in financial freefall; with subsidies slashed, demand for turbines has collapsed, input costs are soaring and their Chinese competitors are benefiting from their cheap and reliable supplies of coal-fired power. Oh, the irony! The barely disguised panic in this article from ReCharge (one of Europe’s leading wind and solar propaganda […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

International Climate Changed: Putin’s War Destroys Great ‘Green’ Energy Reset

Vladimir Putin’s march across Ukraine has wrecked plans to slash man-made carbon oxide gas emissions with net-zero targets. Remember a month or so back, when the most pressing challenge was the apparent need to tame global weather using endless subsidies for billions more solar panels and millions more giant industrial wind turbines? When fossil fuels […]

Old King Coal Trumps Wind & Solar: In An Energy Starved World the Black Stuff Still Rules

Wind and solar advocates keep carping that ‘coal is dead’, as if thermal power generation had gone the same way as the dodo and flared trousers. This wouldn’t be the first time an obituary has been published way too early. Mark Twain noted that reports of his death had been greatly exaggerated. So too, coal-fired […]

Russia’s Ukrainian Invasion Equation: Europe Ditches Wind & Solar Transition

Like a jilted bride, wind and solar have lost all love and favour as Europe scrambles for reliable and affordable energy. Now it seems that the only inevitable thing about the ‘inevitable transition’ is that when people are forced to choose between electricity delivered reliably and affordably and the purportedly clean and green kind, they […]

No End Date For Coal & Nuclear: Gas Crunch Drives Germany’s Grand Renewables Backflip

A month or so back, Germany’s green-infested government was talking up the end of coal and nuclear power plants; the last phase in its ‘inevitable’ transition to an all wind and sun-powered future, as the wind and sun cult would have it. Well. That was then, this is now. With the squeeze on Russian gas […]
