Fake ‘Green’ Energy: So Much Spent On Wind & Solar For So Little Return

Wind and solar are not just costly they are entirely useless. Never in the field of energy generation has so much been spent, by so many, for so little return. Forget the colossal and endless subsidies, forget the community division, forget the environmental destruction and landfills full of toxic blades and panels and start with […]

Endless Resuscitation Required: Wind & Solar Simply Can’t Survive Without Massive Subsidies

As soon as the subsidies for wind and solar dry up, so does the investment in generating capacity, proving the point that neither wind nor solar can survive for very long without guaranteed, government-mandated support; whether in the form of Production Tax Credits, Renewable Energy Certificates or penalties and fines laid on retailers if they […]

Renewables Rip-off: ‘Free’ Offshore Wind Power Costs Six Times the Average Cost of Power in USA

Americans are fast learning that the cost of wind power is staggering, and the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. Joe Biden and his Squad are eager to plant thousands of these things up and down the Atlantic coast, claiming that offshore wind power is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time. It’s a […]

Biden’s Rapacious ‘Green’ Dream: Green New Deal Devouring World’s Rare Earth Minerals

Clean’, ‘green’ wind and solar were meant to save the planet, but the obsession with the unreliables will only expedite its consumption. Every solar panel and every wind turbine are an aggregation of minerals, requiring mountains of real energy in their creation. Many of those minerals are scarce, generally referred to as “rare earths”. Thanks […]

Joe Biden’s Offshore Wind Energy Mirage: Or ‘How To Squander $Trillions of Taxpayers’ Money’

For an example of how unhinged the Democrat’s energy policy is, then Biden’s offshore wind energy plan takes the cake. The fact that offshore wind power has already proven to be a phenomenally expensive way of generating electricity clearly hasn’t registered. Nor has the fact that it’s no more reliable than wind power generated onshore, […]

Follow The Money: How Texas Squandered $66 Billion on Unreliable Wind & Solar

When wind and solar output plummeted during America’s big freeze, rent seekers and acolytes shrugged and blamed conservative ideologues, fossil fuels and Trump. None of which had anything at all to do with millions of solar panels plastered thick in snow and ice, or thousands of wind turbines frozen solid with the balance producing practically […]

‘Green’ Monster: Biden’s Wind Power Plan Destroys Offshore Fisheries & Threatens Endangered Whales

Joe Biden and his Squad of wind worshipping lunatics are hellbent on destroying the livelihoods of America’s Atlantic fishermen, and much more besides. Endangered Right Whales are in the gun, as well. [Note to Ed: remember when lefties used to exhort us to Save the Whales?] Big spending Biden wants to squander untold $billions of […]

Counting the Staggering Cost of Biden’s Offshore Wind Power Plans: Power Costs Set to Double

With Joe Biden and the Squad in the White House, American power consumers should strap themselves in for a very wild ride. Under his plans to spear or anchor 10,000 or more giant industrial wind turbines into the seafloor off America’s Atlantic coast, it’s not just the marine environment and fishermen who will suffer the […]

Californian & Texan Renewable Energy Blackouts Force Americans to Back Base-Load Power

Base-load power means the stuff generated by coal, gas, nuclear and, where nature permits, hydro. Anyone claiming that wind or solar fit within that mix has never seen a sunset or experienced a burst of dead calm weather. And there’s the rub. Mass blackouts and power rationing in notionally wind and solar powered California during […]

Renewable Energy Retreat: Texas Targets Unreliable Wind & Solar With Punitive Fees & Charges

After America’s big freeze, Texan legislators are determined to restore reliable power generation sources, by hitting unreliable wind and solar with a raft of punitive fees and charges. Whereas wind and solar have enjoyed massive subsidies (in the US, principally the Production Tax Credit, as well as state-mandated feed in tariffs), the reliable generators (nuclear, […]
