Want The World’s Most Expensive & Unreliable Electricity? Try Offshore Wind Power

The true cost of chaotically intermittent wind power is staggering; the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. The capital cost of spearing these things offshore is multiples greater than doing so and some dimwitted farmer’s back paddock. Recouping that capital cost means that offshore wind power is 25 times more expensive than coal, gas or nuclear. […]

Want to pay a fortune for power delivered in chaotic fits and spurts? Why not try offshore wind power? The true cost of chaotically intermittent wind power is staggering; the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. The capital cost of spearing these things offshore is multiples greater than doing so in some dimwitted farmer’s […]

Woeful Wind: New Data Shows Wind Power Output Is Pathetic Across UK & Europe

Adding wind power generating capacity is one occasion when ‘more’, truly means ‘less’. No matter how much of other people’s money gets spent spearing wind turbines all over the countryside, the result is the same: whether it’s 10,000 or 100,000 MW of available wind power capacity, when calm weather sets in, the combined output adds […]

Daylight Robbery: UK Wind Farms Paid £9.3million To Shut Down Their Turbines For A Single Day

In the history of commerce, there’s never been a financial scam that comes anywhere near rivalling subsidised wind power. In the past, sharp, entrepreneurial types have made plenty of easy money from ‘selling’ the London Bridge and the Eiffel Tower to unwitting dupes. But scamming fools with too good to be true offers is nothing […]

Heaven Help Us: Push For More Subsidised & Intermittent Wind & Solar Adds to COVID-19 Chaos

The coronavirus has delivered a global recession, now RE rent seekers want to deliver a truly Great Depression, with desperate calls for even more subsidies for chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Since Britain launched into its wind power obsession in 2002, retail power prices have more than doubled. Which tends to run against the mantra […]

Never Competitive: Britain’s Wind Industry Begs For Even More Massive Subsidies

The wind industry was founded on lies, built on myth and runs on subsidies. ‘Propaganda’ was conjured up by a Catholic Pope, employed with devastating effect by the Nazis and still maintains control over the masses in China. But it wasn’t until the wind industry switched into gear that propaganda really hit its straps. Being […]

On The Beach: Whales Deafened By Offshore Wind Turbine Noise Die Stranded Onshore

The wind industry has been slaughtering millions of birds, bats and insects for years; and offshore it’s been killing off whales and dolphins, as well. Energy power generation system takes its toll on the environment, but it’s only the wind industry that claims moral superiority over all others. That tenuous claim – which rests on […]

Guilty: Giant UK Wind Farm Forced to Pay £4.5 Million to Compensate Its Blackout Victims

If unreliable, weather-dependent wind power isn’t a recipe for disaster, it’s most certainly a recipe for chaos. Electricity grids are complex critters, designed around strict tolerances to allow what’s dispatched to them by generators (supply) to perfectly match what’s taken out of them by customers (demand aka ‘the load’). For an explanation of what a […]

Killer-App: Offshore Wind Turbines Wiping Out Entire Bird Species

While Greta frets about global incineration and mass extinctions, the wind industry is doing a very fine job of extinguishing millions of birds and bats, every year. Indeed, entire species are under threat, including Europe’s Red Kite and Tasmania’s Wedge Tailed Eagle. More generally, there’s a wave of avian carnage wherever the wind industry plies […]

Scam Alert: Claims Offshore Wind Will Soon Power The World Are Pure Bunkum

Built on lies and fuelled by subsidies, the wind industry is the biggest government mandated scam in history. Around the world, governments have thrown trillions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies at wind power; set mandates and punitive targets and helped developers ride roughshod over rural communities. Out at sea, trawlermen are left furious as they […]
