Short-Changed: $Billions Spent On Wind & Solar Return Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

All cost and no benefit, chaotically intermittent wind and solar are proven net losers. And yet, the Climate Industrial Complex keeps telling us that the unreliables are central to ‘saving’ the planet. On that score, rather than coming straight out with it, crony capitalists and political elites use the euphemism ‘climate action’. What they really […]

Germans Brace For Energy Catastrophe: Prices Set to Triple When Nuclear & Coal Plants Close

Germany’s so-called ‘transition’ to wind and solar is an unmitigated disaster: power prices have rocketed and more blackouts loom this winter, whenever the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. Hellbent on self-destruction, the Germans are planning to kill off their last remaining nuclear power plants and are equally determined to axe all of their […]

Europe’s Epic Renewable Energy Fail Makes Transition to Nuclear Power Truly Inevitable

The fastest way to get people thinking about electricity, is to deprive them of it. Europe’s power pricing and supply calamity has sharpened thinking and provided a golden opportunity for engineers and free-market economists to wrest back control from ideologues and renewable energy rent-seekers. Until the Big Calm hit Western Europe last month – causing […]

Not-Zero: China’s Insatiable Demand For Real Energy Sends Coal, Oil & Gas Prices Soaring

The wind and solar cult reckon that coal is already dead and that gas is mortally wounded – energy markets say otherwise: the price of Australian coal has tripled since 2019; and gas and oil prices are off the charts. When it’s freezing cold and there’s not a breath of wind or shred of sunshine […]

When The Lights Go Out Across Europe: Wind Power Droughts Promise Mass Blackouts

The point has been reached when serious people are starting to talk seriously about serious power generation. Europe has been struck by an outbreak of calm weather and its wind power output has, predictably enough, plummeted. The disaster unfolding across the continent is like watching the same train wreck, over and over, again. The idea […]

‘Green’ Energy’s Epic Fail: Wind Gods Conspire to Ruin Europe’s Wind Power ‘Transition’

Europe’s ‘green’ energy transition has turned into high farce, with wind power output collapsing across the continent. The wind Gods are clearly angry. Britain and Germany have been in the doldrums for weeks; the gas needed to plug the gaps is in short supply, with the price of both gas and electricity, skyrocketing. The power […]

Climate Short-Changed: Big Calm Heralds Britain’s Renewable Energy Crunch

Appears the climate doomsayers were right: the ‘Big Calm’ has struck Britain and Western Europe – slashing wind power output, without relent. Far from being the panacea for a changing climate, wind power generation is now, apparently, a victim. Over the last few months, wind power output has thoroughly collapsed in Germany, across Western Europe […]

Coal Saves Germany (Again): Weather Conspires to Cut Annual Wind Power Production by 25%

Germany’s inevitable transition to wind and solar, ain’t so inevitable, after all. Coal-fired power plants have been urgently press-ganged back into action, as the weather conspires to drive wind power output through the floor. Inherently unreliable, wind power has never powered any serious economy; and never will. The problem with relying upon the weather for […]

Power Market Manipulators Reap Windfall Whenever Wind & Solar Power Output Falls

When the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in, the price gouging by the owners of reliable power generation plant, begins. When those paragons of corporate virtue that ran Enron started ripping off Californian power consumers during the late 1990s, they did it by shutting down gas pipelines and pretending gas-fired power plants were off-line […]

Germany’s Forests Trashed to Make Way for Thousands of Giant Industrial Wind Turbines

  You know it’s a cult when followers happily justify clear-felling forests to make way for giant industrial wind turbines. Those that worship wind power have set new standards in cognitive dissonance. One minute they’re ranting about saving the planet; the next they’re leading the charge in its immediate and permanent destruction. Germany’s so-called ‘Greens’ […]
