Why Everything You’ve Heard About Solar Is Wrong: What the Media Don’t Want You to Know

The mainstream press would have you believe that we’re already being exclusively powered by wind and solar, and that neither of them have any downside, at all. Michael Shellenberger knows otherwise. Michael, with his properly reasoned support for nuclear power, draws plenty of heat from the pro-unreliables hacks in the MSM for his equally reasoned […]

Solar’s Toxic Legacy: When the Panels Wear Out, Who Cleans Up the ‘Green’ Energy Mess?

Because solar panels can’t be economically recycled, millions upon millions of them are headed for landfill. Around the globe, countless millions of panels have already reached their use by dates. Over the next decade millions of tonnes of them are headed for the dump. Each panel is a veritable toxic cocktail of gallium arsenide, tellurium, […]

Biden’s Big ‘Green’ Dirty Secret: America’s Solar Industry Depends on Slave Labour

Joe Biden and his Squad are eager to carpet America wall-to-wall with solar panels built by thousands of Uighur slaves under the control of the CCP. The reason that China is able to dominate the market for solar panels isn’t about superior manufacturing techniques or Confucian ideals. No, it’s about very cheap wages. So cheap […]

How Green Was My Valley: Big Solar’s Big British Land Grab Continues Unabated

To generate anything other than a trivial amount of electricity using wind and solar, you need the best part of a continent do it. But, if your ‘continent’ is little more than a postage stamp to begin with, then carpeting the productive and/or prettiest parts of it with an endless sea of solar panels is […]

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 […]
