Wind Power Subsidy Cuts Kill Thousands of Green Jobs: Siemens Sacks 6,000 Workers

The wind industry is little more than the most recent and elaborate effort to fleece gullible investors, in a list that dates back to “corporate investment classics”, like the South-Sea Bubble and Dutch tulip mania. In the wind industry, the scam is all about pitching bogus projected returns (based on overblown wind “forecasts”) (see our posts here and here and here and here); claiming that […]

German Wind Industry Collapse Imminent: Engineering Professor Deems ‘Energiewende’ Terminal

Germany has been held up by renewable energy zealots as the shining example of how to run on sunshine and breezes. However, like its doppelgänger down under, South Australia, eventually and inevitably, reality bites. German householders and businesses (just like those in South Australia) are being belted by rocketing power prices and – every time […]

Wrong Bet: Unreliable, Intermittent, Subsidised Wind & Solar Odds-on Losers

It’s said that you can’t keep a good man down and, in that respect, Ian Plimer is simply irrepressible. His latest book, The Climate Delusion and The Great Electricity Rip-off is jumping off the shelves. A précis (and where to purchase it) appears in our post here: Ian Plimer: The Climate Change Delusion and The […]

Subsidised Wind & Solar: Guaranteed Path to Rocketing Prices & Blackouts

Australia’s diabolically destructive renewable energy policies have led to rocketing power prices and a grid on the brink of collapse. Australian power consumers currently connected to the Eastern Grid (that connects Queensland, New South Wales, ACT, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania) have no idea just how close they are to watching their first total ‘system […]

Why Wind Power is the Greatest Economic & Environmental Fraud in History

When called upon the think of certainties, gravity springs to mind (at least on earth). Although, for the wind industry it does tend to deliver harsh results – see above, yet another fatal collapse, this time in Lincoln, Nebraska. Another certainty, is that once people tackle the facts, they turn against wind power with a […]

FAIL: PM’s Power Market ‘Game Changer’ Still Wedded in Delusion

Malcolm Turnbull’s attempt to save Australia’s electricity grid from imminent collapse has been tagged the National Energy Guarantee. Whether or not it guarantees that the lights stay on and the economy can keep limping along, is anybody’s guess. However, it is a guarantee of controversy. When the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers finally tumble […]

Renewables Debacle Rolls On: Power Politics Always & Everywhere About Power Prices

That a government decides to entertain a moment of self-congratulation – simply because the lights might stay on – would be understandable, if the Country in question was North Korea or Cuba. However, the primary purpose of Malcolm Turnbull’s National Energy Guarantee is just that: allowing the Federal government to claim ‘mission accomplished’, if Australia […]
