2021’s Renewables Debacle In Review: Fickle Wind & Sun Face Bitter Accusations

Just when the ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future was supposed to be in the bag, thoroughly calm weather dashed all hopes. $Trillions in subsidies have been thrown at wind and solar power outfits, with no end to the largess in sight. All the while, the rent seekers and propagandists have been […]

Battle for Britain: Brits Scramble For Reliable Energy After Repeated Wind Power Failures

Hardly anyone in Britain is talking about wind power as a serious generation source, anymore. Total collapses in wind power output that lasted for days and even weeks, starting back in September, put paid to that kind of loose chatter. Instead, Brits appear to have been struck with the stark realisation that their power generation […]

Wind Power ‘Droughts’ Mean Nuclear Power Key To Neutralising Net-Zero Madness

Europe’s persistent and ongoing wind drought spells the end for never-reliable wind power and the renaissance of ever-reliable nuclear. As a consequence of the Big Calm and a total collapse in wind power output across Western Europe and the UK, the Brits have now enlisted Rolls Royce to build a fleet of small modular reactors. […]

What Meeting Net-Zero Emissions Targets Without Nuclear Power Will Cost You

There’s a new definition of insanity: trying to satisfy net-zero carbon dioxide gas emissions targets without nuclear power. Australia’s PM, Scott Morrison’s energy policy falls well within that definition, which probably makes this country one of the largest lunatic asylums, on earth. Morrison headed off to Glasgow to join 25,000 virtue signallers, crony capitalists and […]

Party’s Over: Unreliable Wind & Solar Ditched In Favour of Ever-Reliable Nuclear & Gas

Once the belles of the ball, wind and solar are being treated like cheap tarts: now it’s nuclear and gas that are attracting all the attention. And it’s all thanks to the massive wind drought – aka the Big Calm – that struck Western Europe in September, and lasted for weeks, sending gas and power […]

Post-Renewables Reality: Nuclear Power Generation Easy Solution For Energy Starved World

Europe’s great wind drought has focused attention on the unassailable fact that wind power is an utterly meaningless power source. The demand for electricity is, always and everywhere, a ‘here and now’ kind of thing. Households and businesses couldn’t care less if there’s a roaring gale and plenty of wind power at 2 in the […]

Goodbye Glasgow – Hello Energy Poverty: The Staggering True Cost of Wind & Solar

If the Climate Industrial Complex gets its way, kiss goodbye to reliable and affordable energy. The apparent answer all our woes is more of the same: endless subsidies to hopelessly chaotic wind and solar, with even greater subsidies to pie-in-the-sky ‘green’ hydrogen and insanely expensive giant lithium batteries. If you’re not already suffering the consequences […]

COP That Wind & Solar: Nuclear Power Drives French Renewables Resistance

The French already get more than 70% of their power from nuclear plants. Now, thanks to a massive month-long wind power output collapse, that proportion is destined to increase. Following Europe’s ‘disastrous’ wind drought – that saw wind power output plummet throughout most of September and into October, and early November – the need for […]

Wind Change: Net-Zero Emissions Target Guarantees Nuclear Powered Future

Wind and solar zealots may have scored own goal with their push for net-zero carbon dioxide gas emissions targets. The reason being is that nuclear power is the only stand-alone power generation system capable of delivering electricity 24 x 365 – irrespective of the weather, without generating carbon dioxide gas, in the process. The Big […]

Europe’s Epic Renewable Energy Fail Makes Transition to Nuclear Power Truly Inevitable

The fastest way to get people thinking about electricity, is to deprive them of it. Europe’s power pricing and supply calamity has sharpened thinking and provided a golden opportunity for engineers and free-market economists to wrest back control from ideologues and renewable energy rent-seekers. Until the Big Calm hit Western Europe last month – causing […]
