Follow the Money: Politicians Plugging Wind & Solar Pocketing Untold $Millions

Crony capitalism is the new ‘Green’: every politician plugging wind and solar will eventually be caught pocketing cash for his time and trouble. Sure, there’s an ostensible sense of virtue when an MP propounds renewables as a solution to all the world’s perceived ills. But it doesn’t take much digging to work out precisely why […]

Subsidised Suicide: How Wind & Solar Carpetbaggers Trashed Australia’s Energy Grid

With abundant supplies of coal, gas and uranium Australia ought to be renowned as an energy superpower. It isn’t. In less than 20 years it deliberately destroyed the most reliable and affordable power generation and delivery system, on earth. It started with subsidies; massive subsidies to wind and solar – both domestic and large-scale – […]

Waste in The West: Texans Have Already Squandered $66 Billion on Unreliable Wind & Solar

Texans suffering weather-caused power supply shortages might well query the $66 billion that’s already been squandered on the unreliables, $22 billion of which has been directly pocketed as subsidies by the wind and solar industries, with plenty more coming their way. Robert Bryce takes a look at where power-starved Texan taxpayers’ dollars are being directed. […]

Endless Resuscitation Required: Wind & Solar Simply Can’t Survive Without Massive Subsidies

As soon as the subsidies for wind and solar dry up, so does the investment in generating capacity, proving the point that neither wind nor solar can survive for very long without guaranteed, government-mandated support; whether in the form of Production Tax Credits, Renewable Energy Certificates or penalties and fines laid on retailers if they […]

Atomic Alternative: Nuclear Power Only Pathway to Net-Zero Emissions

Householders, businesses, indeed, power consumers of all shapes and sizes are bracing themselves for the suicidal results of looming Net-Zero CO2 emissions targets. We’ll start from the premise that nothing will shake the resolve of the lunatics who pretend to govern us, when it comes to their do or die quest for reducing man-made emissions […]

Renewable Energy Obsession Means Brits Pay £10.8 Billion in Wind & Solar Subsidies Every Year

Unreliable, inefficient and insanely costly, there’s plenty to dislike about subsidised wind and solar. British power prices have rocketed; ‘reliability’ is now just a catchphrase; energy poverty is the new normal; and its PM, Boris Johnson apparently couldn’t care less. Indeed, he seems even more fixated on unreliable and unaffordable power, than his predecessors. Dr […]

Massive Subsidies For Wind & Solar ‘Industries’: The Never, Never, Never-Ending Story

Back in 1983 the American Wind Industry Association claimed that solar and wind would be “competitive and self-supporting on a national level by the end of the decade if assisted by tax credits and augmented by federally sponsored R&D”. That was over 37 years ago. And there was no lack of assistance in the form […]

Pricing Vanity: Power Consumers Punished By Obscene Cost of Wind Farm Subsidies

The virtue signalling wind power advocate reckons that the wind is free, but the pointless Vanity Project that is industrial wind power comes with a staggering pricetag. And it’s the power consumer that’s always left to pick up the tab. While the increasingly whopping number staring out from a power bill can hardly be concealed, […]

Why Subsidising Intermittent Wind & Solar Drives Power Prices Through the Roof

Perplexed as to why your power bill just doubled? Then you’ll be pleased to know the answer is simple: massively subsidised wind and solar. Statisticians get excited when they can prove causation instead of mere correlation, which often depends upon the number of observations of a particular event of interest. With dozens of countries and […]

Suicide Pact: Subsidised Wind & Solar Designed to Wreck First World Economies

One of China’s principal strengths is its ability to harness cheap and reliable nuclear and coal-fired power. Contrast that with Australia’s energy policies deliberately hostile to coal and nuclear power, and it’s hard not to conclude that our political betters are in cahoots with the CCP. The Roman Empire didn’t collapse because the barbarians to […]
