Australia’s Energy Crisis: High Time For Government to Grow Up and Back Nuclear Powered Future

  You’ve probably reached peak stupid when a troubled teenage girl gets to berate adults about global economic and energy policy, and a purportedly educated class sit awestruck, applauding in earnest. Greta the Fretter was front and centre in the (predictable) climate cult hysteria about the bushfires that have swept Australia this summer. Amongst renewable […]

Game Changer: US Start-up’s Small Nuclear Plants to Make Big Difference to World’s Energy Future

Anyone banging on about carbon dioxide gas and climate change, and not promoting nuclear power, can’t be taken seriously. Nuclear power is the only stand-alone power generation source that does not emit carbon dioxide gas during the generation process. And, unlike chaotically intermittent wind and solar, it’s available 24 x 365. That the world’s third largest […]

Worried About Cutting CO2 Emissions? Then Nuclear is the Only Solution

  As Greta the Fretter and her acolytes would have it, the obvious solution to Australia’s summertime bushfires is covering the country with wind turbines and solar panels. Whether or not this nonsense represents ‘peak stupid’, is a matter for another day. Although wits might retort that large tracts of South Australia – across the […]

French Devolution: China Embraces Reliable & Affordable Nuclear as France Lets It Slide

Europe’s power market is in a diabolical mess: massive subsidies to intermittent wind and solar have undermined reliable and affordable power supplies, sending Germany and Denmark’s power prices through the roof (see above). Whereas, France’s heavy reliance on reliable and affordable nuclear means that the French enjoy power prices a mere fraction of those suffered […]

System Upgrade: Bill Gates Backs New Wave Nuclear For World’s Clean Energy Future

  When the world’s richest entrepreneur says wind and solar will never work, it’s probably time to listen. Bill Gates made a fortune applying common sense to the untapped market of home computing. The meme has it that IBM’s CEO believed there was only a market for five computers in the entire world. Gates thought otherwise. Building […]

Energy Essentials: Clean, Safe & Ever Reliable Nuclear Is The Obvious Choice

The well-worn meme about the dangers of nuclear power doesn’t stand first contact with reality. As Katie Tub details below, nuclear power not only delivers a reliable and affordable stream of electrons, it does so in a manner that’s a whole lot safer than anything else humans engage in. Katie tallies up the tiny number […]

Ripping Yarns: Wind & Sun Can’t Power the World: Never Have & Never Will

You know we’ve reached peak stupid when adults line up to be lectured by troubled teenage girls on energy and world economics. Greta the Fretter and the lunatics gluing themselves to roads under the banner of the Extinction Rebellion have made the work of the sane and rational so much easier. For a decade or […]
