German Hi-Tech Firms Driven Offshore By Unaffordable & Unreliable Renewable Energy

‘Net zero’ is precisely the number of meaningful jobs that’ll be left after our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future. Looking for an example? Look no further than the wind and solar acolyte’s pinup girl, Germany. Notwithstanding billions of euros in subsidies, courageous mandates and punitive targets, its Energiewende has failed […]

Hide & Seek: The Staggering Cost of Offshore Wind Power Revealed

Renewable energy rent seekers and their propagandists are diligent in their efforts to hide the true costs of wind power from the punters. Their smoke and mirrors ‘accounting’ religiously ignores the cost of providing power from a meaningful source, whenever calm weather sets in. And their ‘wind power is cheapest of all’ claims always gloss […]

Don’t Believe The Hype: Britain’s Power Price Hike All Due to Subsidised Wind Power

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Brits are already paying the price for its suicidal renewable energy policies. Under ‘Bonkers’ Boris that price will be positively murderous. His plan to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on subsidies and over-the-market contracts for intermittent offshore wind power beggars belief. And will turn many on the lower […]

Monstrous Morality: ‘Progressives’ Love Costly & Unreliable Wind & Solar But Detest The Poor

So-called ‘progressives’ are long on moral posturing, but short on human compassion. Enamoured with costly wind and solar, and determined to outlaw every last reliable power source, they couldn’t care less about the inevitable spike in power prices that follows, that disproportionately punishes the least fortunate souls among us. Letting granny freeze in the dark […]

Power Pact: Renewable Energy Rent Seekers Get the Gold; The Poor Get the Stick

Government mandated subsidies for wind and solar represent the greatest wealth transfer since England’s ‘Bad’ King John sought to tax himself to ultimate power and his enemies out of existence. His description as “avaricious, miserly, extortionate and moneyminded” applies with equal force to today’s crony capitalist kings – the renewable energy rent seekers. Had King […]

Net Loser: Subsidised Wind & Solar ‘Industries’ Destroy More Jobs Than They Ever Create

Calling wind and solar ‘industries’ is sloppy; any operation that can’t survive without massive and perpetual subsidies isn’t really an ‘industry’, at all. Industry connotes effort, output and production. Whereas the wind and solar scam involves destruction on all fronts: environmental, social and economic. The myth about so-called ‘green’ energy jobs, is just that. South […]

Power Battle: Common Sense Abandoned With Push For More Intermittent Wind & Solar

Our good friends’ logic and reason were sacrificed long ago by the High Priests of the wind and solar cult. Attempt to point out the inevitable effect of sunset on solar output and/or calm weather on wind power output and you’ll be branded ‘heretic’, before you know it. You’ll be sent off to an education […]

It’s Subsidised Wind & Solar or Meaningful Well-Paid Jobs: But You Can’t Have Both

Australian power prices went through the roof as a result of its obsession with chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar (see above). The relationship is so stark, why even a blind man, open to reality, will readily see it.  However, no amount of evidence appears to register with those who pretend to govern […]

Wrecking Ball: Australia’s Fixation With Subsidised Renewables Guarantees Economic Disaster

If the object was wrecking every last manufacturing, mineral processing and mining job, then Australia’s renewable energy policy has delivered on time and under budget. Starting in 2001 with John Howard’s Renewable Energy Target (massively expanded by Kevin Rudd in 2009), the subsidies being squandered on intermittent wind and solar are now in the order […]

Technology Tease: On The Cruel Promise of a Renewables/Hydrogen Fuelled Future

  The wind and solar industries were built on lies, run on myth and are fuelled by subsidies, so the only way forward is more of the very same. It took politicians and punters around a decade to cotton on to the hopeless unreliability and chaotic intermittency of solar and wind power.  Which required an […]
