Germany’s Renewable Energy Disaster – Part 3: Wind & Solar Deemed ‘Economic Nonsense’

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle. German power prices have rocketed; blackouts and load shedding are the norm; and once bucolic farmland has been turned into industrial wastelands (see above). Hundreds of billions of euros have been squandered on subsidies to wind and solar, […]

RE Fails During Heatwave: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Californians Sweltering in the Dark

  Plug your energy needs into the sun and wind and expect plenty of disappointment, especially when it counts. Renewable energy zealots always talk a ‘big game’ – perpetually raving about how this wind farm or that sea of solar panels will ‘power’ hundreds of thousands of homes, for free, forever. Then the sun sets […]

End of Days: Wind Industry Faces Armageddon in Ontario as New Government Scraps Hundreds of Planned Projects

Stray dogs disappear when you stop feeding them: wind power outfits evaporate as soon as governments slash the mandates, targets and subsidies that nourish them. Back in June, the Progressive Conservatives snatched power from an arrogant and out-of-touch Liberal government, that was headed up by the malevolent Kathleen Wynne. One of their first moves was […]

D-Day For Australia’s Energy Debacle: End of Bipartisan Support Means End for Wind & Solar

As desperate as they are silly, Australia’s renewable energy rent-seekers and the zealots that do their bidding have called in an airstrike on their own position. Making nonsensical claims that adding even more heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar will lead to substantial reductions in retail power prices, has exposed these people for […]

Follow The Money: Self-Interested Fiction Supplants Hard-Coal-Facts in Mythical ‘Transition’ to All Wind & Solar Future

  Ignore the voluble pomposity and faux moral piety, the sole motivation driving RE zealotry is money. Lots and lots of other people’s money. And forget about saving the planet, this is about making a group of cynical, conniving and audacious rent-seekers fabulously, indeed filthy, rich. In what is the greatest, state-sanctioned wealth-transfer in human […]

Politics of Power: Spiralling Power Prices Signal End for Wind & Solar Subsidies

In Australia, nothing stops a barbecue like the topic of ever spiralling power prices. Across the country, retail power prices have been rising at double-digit rates for the last four years: across the NEM States and the ACT retail power prices have increased between 13 and 28% – year-on-year – over the last three years. More […]

Energy Idiocracy: How Australia’s Power ‘Policy’ Was Hijacked and Destroyed by Idiots

It’s said you shouldn’t assume conspiracy, until you’ve ruled out incompetence. Australia’s energy debacle is, however, a mixture of both. In Mike Judge’s off-the-wall, futuristic comedy, ‘Idiocracy’, lunatics not only take over the asylum, they end up running the United States – into the ground. Starting on the premise that morons began out-breeding the vaguely […]
