Misery Guaranteed: Net Zero CO2 Emissions Targets Mean Taxing Prosperity Out of Existence

As the wind and solar ‘transition’ implodes, the response is to tax the life out of anything still moving, crushing power consumers and taxpayers in the bargain. Ronald Reagan’s quip about how governments treat their economies: “If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it” is […]

New Anti-Fossil Fuel Puritans Set New Standard in Blatant Ignorance & Gross Hypocrisy

If it looks and sounds like a deranged cult, it probably is. The latest wheeze is pretending that functional, civil societies can live without coal, oil and gas. It’s perfect nonsense, to be sure, and symptomatic of an uneducated cohort who haven’t the faintest idea about what makes their safe and utterly privileged little lives […]

Wind & Solar Wipeout: Reliable & Affordable Power Now Part of Ancient History

Pretty soon, the notion of having affordable power available on demand will be ancient history. Never before in the course of human existence have so few done so much damage to so many. Electricity prices are spiralling out of control in any place attempting to run on sunshine and breezes, power rationing (aka ‘demand management’) […]

Highway to Hell: World’s Big Banks Baulk at Suicidal Net-Zero Emissions Pathway

The big-money has just worked out that going ‘woke’ means going broke. Sure, a little cynical greenwashing doesn’t hurt corporate reputation with the MSM and Twitterati, but shareholders and markets tend to take a sterner view. Financiers were among the first to sign up to models which limited their finance to fossil fuel producers and […]

No Mystery: Human Progress Begins & Ends With Access to Reliable & Affordable Power

The misanthropes who glue themselves to roads and berate us about the ‘horrors’ of nuclear, coal and gas-fired power aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed, to be sure. Living in a fact and consequence free zone, they’ve never stopped to think for a moment what life would be like without light, heat and power. […]

Electric Dreams: Why We Can Never Run Exclusively On Wind & Solar Power

The next ‘big thing’ is an all-electric world, where power caressed from sunshine and breezes will provide all the energy, we ever need, for everything we ever do. Given the tag ‘electrification’, it sounds like another simple wheeze that only requires an open mind and a little goodwill. Well, like the grand wind and solar […]

Lone Stars: Texans Count Colossal Cost of Wind & Solar ‘Transition’

Crushing power costs and power rationing follow wind and solar reliance, like night follows day. Texas is no exception. Bullying power consumers to stop consuming power is par for the course; chiselling taxpayers to cover the exorbitant cost of making up for power shortfalls when the wind stops blowing and/or the sun sets, is grist […]

Chairman Mao Returns: ‘Green’ Energy Cult Delivers Another ‘Great Leap Forward’

The ‘transition’ to wind and solar is delivering punishing power prices to those who can least afford it, and the inevitable power rationing surrounding collapses in wind and solar output is crushing businesses of all shapes and sizes. The zealots behind it couldn’t care less about the vulnerable and impoverished that drift along at the […]

Vlad’s Victory: Europe Losing Energy War Thanks to Wind & Solar Obsession

Many a defeat is the product of a grand delusion; Europe’s obsession with wind and solar is just another example. Beaten by Vlad Putin’s ability to restrict the gas it needs to run fast-start-up gas peaking plants (essential to cover rapid and unpredictable collapses in wind output and rapid and wholly predictable collapses in solar […]

Net Zero Intelligence: Logic and Reason Give Way to Unreliable Renewables Obsession

Reason and logic are in the fight of their lives; ideologues continue to push chaotically intermittent wind and solar, determined to deprive us of the reliable and affordable power that dragged us towards the unparalleled peace and prosperity we currently take for granted. Net-zero carbon oxide gas emissions targets are only the latest assault launched […]
