RE-Treat: Europe’s Repeated Wind & Solar Failures Force Renewable Energy Reversal

Germany and Britain are so heavily dependent on wind and solar, that gloomy, windless weather now presents an existential threat. The Germans have even coined a word for it: ‘dunkelflaute’. If mass blackouts during freezing winter weather weren’t a threat to millions of lives, it would almost be comical. What’s occurred is the perfect example […]

‘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 […]

Climate Changed: Calm, Gloomy Weather Killing Europe’s Grand Wind & Solar ‘Transition’

In the mother of all ironies, Europe’s wind and sun cult are complaining about uncooperative weather. The Germans have even coined a word for it: ‘dunkelflaute’ – meaning a period of gloomy, windless weather. Which, in reality, means little or nothing by way of output from their more than 30,000 wind turbines and millions of […]

Kill Zone: German Study Proves Wind Turbines Slaughter Millions of Bats Every Year

Wind power outfits can’t guarantee power when you need it, but their turbines rarely miss an opportunity to slaughter birds or bats silly enough to enter their bloody kill zone. The wind power cult has no difficulty in justifying the destruction of pristine landscapes; the dismemberment of once cohesive, rural communities; the creation of toxic waste […]

Biggest Losers: Thousands Sacked As Germany’s Wind Turbine Makers Face Financial Doom

Cut the subsidies to wind power and turbine makers soon fold. Siemens Gamesa has been axing hundreds of jobs in Europe and America as the wheels come off the renewable energy gravy train. Now, Vestas, Nordex and Enercon are also facing financial ruin, and for all the same reasons. Some of their travails are caused by the fact […]

Real Energy Rules: Germans Shred Wind Farm To Expand Critical Coal Supplies

Germans apparently aren’t keen on freezing in the dark, so they’ve started trashing wind turbines to expand the coal supplies that prevent that kind of misery. There are more than 30,000 wind turbines spread across Deutschland, with thousands more off the German coast. Notwithstanding brave talk about killing off their coal-fired power plants, made redundant […]

Wind & Sun Can’t Deliver: So Power-Starved Germans Demand Nuclear Plants Remain Online

Mass civil unrest is odds-on in power starved Germany and Britain this winter, thanks to the so-called wind and solar ‘transition’. With thousands likely to freeze to death, the collective sense of humour will soon evaporate, along with any remaining faith in the ability of wind and solar to deliver power, as and when it’s […]

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 […]

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 […]
