Environmental Disaster: Wind Turbines Continually Catch Fire, Throw Blades & Collapse

California’s wind power proponents promised a clean, green future – instead, they’ve delivered a wholesale environmental disaster. In the desert surrounding Ocotillo, locals have been putting up with wind turbines self-immolating, throwing their blades in all directions, leaking and spraying oil and collapsing to the desert floor, for years now (see our post here). Here’s […]

Solar Power Scam Revealed: Why Renewables Can Only Survive With Massive Subsidies

There is no market for power that cannot be delivered on demand. Which is why, in the absence of subsidies, there wouldn’t be a solar panel or wind turbine in sight. Sure, there are remote locations where a solar panel hooked up to a system of batteries and diesel generators make perfect economic sense. Here […]

Rebellion Against Extinction: Civilisation Always & Everywhere About Reliable & Affordable Energy

Try living a day without a reliable power supply; then try living a life-time without it. If the doomsday cult that’s thrusting hopelessly unreliable and insanely expensive wind and solar down our throats had its way, then that’s what a future ‘civilisation’ will look like. For those not willing to make an immediate sacrifice to […]

Grand RE Scam Revealed: What Subsidised Wind & Solar Power Is Really Costing You

Wind and solar scammers don’t want you to know what’s causing your rocketing power bills, and those profiting from endless wind and solar subsidies want to keep it that way. There are a raft of direct and indirect subsidies to wind and solar, which the vaguely interested are able to soon identify. However, it’s the […]

No Serious Contest: Never-Reliable Wind Power Simply Can’t Beat Ever-Reliable Coal-Fired Power

Any country serious about its energy future soon gets serious about coal-fired power. China, India, Indonesia, Japan and Vietnam are in the process of building 600 new coal-fired power plants, between them, adding to a fleet of hundreds of plants which have been operating for generations. And there’s a reason: coal-fired power is reliable and […]

Epic Fail: How Wind & Solar Caused America’s Big Freeze Blackouts & Killed Hundreds

Wind and solar’s hopeless intermittency delivered a deadly lesson during America’s big freeze last winter: hundreds died in freezing homes left without electricity thanks to hundreds of wind turbines that were frozen solid and breathless frigid conditions that meant the remainder delivered no power, in any event; and thousands of solar panels plastered in snow […]

Destination Destruction: Wind and Solar ‘Transition’ Devouring Planet’s Dwindling Resources

Miners love wind and solar – demand for iron ore and coal has never looked rosier, and at the heart of every Electric Vehicle, solar panel and wind turbine there’ a bevy of rare minerals which are fast becoming rarer, thanks to our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future and the […]

Shifting Deckchairs: Unreliable Wind & Solar Responsible For California’s Titanic Energy Disaster

When a notionally first world economy can’t keep the lights on, you’ll find an overreliance on wind and solar at the heart of it. So it is in California. As in Germany, as in South Australia, Californians are victims of a maniacal obsession with wind turbines and solar panels.  The consequences are as perfectly predictable, […]

Dreamer’s Disease: No Way On Earth That Wind & Solar Can Provide 100% of Our Energy Needs

In their wilder moments, the wind and solar acolyte proclaims that an all-wind and sun-powered future is upon us.  Never mind sunset; never mind dead calm weather; and never mind the fact that the idea that giant lithium-ion batteries economically storing wind and solar power at grid-scale is pure hokum – for the dreamer, the […]

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 […]
