Solar Slaves: China Dominates Market For Solar Panels Using Forced Uighur Labour

The smugness exhibited by the owners of solar panels is in its own special class. Pious and self-righteous, these characters are quick to pontificate about their holier than thou credentials. Of course, plastering one’s roof with solar panels is all about saving the planet; and has nothing to do with bleeding their neighbours dry – […]

Inconvenient Truths: Spanish Solar Firm Slaughters 500 Native Deer to Make Way for Panels

The modern ‘green’ worships wind turbines and solar panels in the belief that they’re literally saving the planet, merrily ignoring the wave of environmental destruction wrought by their beloveds. Solar panels are pitched as the paragon of ‘green’ energy, silently caressing the sun’s rays to give off an occasional burst of power that someone, somewhere […]

Big Battery Bunkum: Why Grid-Scale Storage of Renewable Energy Will Never Work

Banishing our good friends, logic and reason is essential to the notion of an ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future. Ignorance of simple maths, the laws of physics, economics and meteorology helps, too. Which explains why the naïve and gullible are merrily swallowing the story that we’re just a few mega-batteries […]

Familiar Territory: Chief Minister Busted Lying About Staggering Cost of Renewable Energy Roadmap

  Shamelessly promoting unreliable renewable energy is one thing, but barefaced lying about its cost, is quite another. Wherever wind and solar make up any significant proportion of a power supply, retail power prices soon rocket. Rising power prices are the guaranteed consequence of duplicating capital costs; additional system costs – including the greater need […]

Peak Stupid: Bizarre Plan to Carpet Australian Desert With Thousands of Wind Turbines & Solar Panels

In more proof that 2020 was the year that we reached ‘peak stupid’, renewable energy rent seekers have topped them all with a plan to convert chaotically intermittent wind and solar into hydrogen, then to convert that into ammonia for shipping, and then back into hydrogen for use in a market that doesn’t exist. You […]

Solar Smashed: French Solar ‘Industry’ Furious At Plan to Slash Annual €2 Billion Subsidy Bill

Wind and solar generators keep claiming their wares are the cheapest of all, which means the subsidies should end, now. If they were genuine, that is. But, much like a sharp poker player with a duff hand, renewable energy rent seekers stake their entire existence on no one ever having the temerity to call their […]

Irony Alert: Cloudier Climate Leaves Weather Worriers Panicking About Future for Solar Power

Apparently, not every cloud is silver lined, especially when it’s a bank of cumulonimbus stubbornly parked between your solar panels and the Sun. Since ‘global warming’ was rebadged as ‘climate change’, we’ve been told to expect all sorts of ‘unprecedented’ extremes. Which means there’s a possibility of more calm weather (with unprecedented calmness), which doesn’t […]

Totally Trashed: Debunking IEA Claims That Wind & Solar Can Replace Fossil Fuels

The wind and solar ‘industries’ were built on lies and run on subsidies. Sunset and calm weather are real things, but those troublesome facts are merrily glossed over by the crowd that tell us that coal, oil and gas are all doomed at the hand of sunshine and breezes. Massaging figures that literally turn night […]

Plugging In: The ‘Batteries Will Save Intermittent Wind & Solar’ Myth Goes Up In Flames

  Mobile device users dread the moment when their phone or tablet signals the end of what’s stored on board, prompting furtive efforts to reconnect to the power grid. Sure, over time, battery life has improved on smart phones and iPads, but hitting the natural limit of the power that can be stored in such […]

Hour of Power: $2 Billion Spent on Solar Panels to ‘Power’ State With Sunshine for 60 Minutes

  In the wacko wonderland of South Australia, a brief burst of sunshine managed to ‘power’ the economic backwater for a staggering 60 minutes. SA is venerated as Australia’s Wind and Solar capital; and the renewables cult is heralding this, apparently, momentous event as their ‘Hour of Power’. Their childish cheering, ignores the fact that […]
