Death Dodgers: On How to Avoid Being Impaled by Flying Wind Turbine Blade Chunks

With thousands of these things being speared into the backyards of closely settled rural communities, the risk of death and serious injury, only increases. The wind industry (which really only got off the ground in the late 1990s and still generates a trifling amount of electricity) has clocked up around 220 fatalities, – see the helpful […]

Wind Power Fail: Britain’s Coal-Fired Power Plants Keep The Lights On During ‘Big Calm’

If having no power at all was the object of our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and solar ‘powered’ future, then we’re well on our way. The bitter northern hemisphere winter just gone, has shown wind and solar for what they are: pointless and expensive vanity projects, that only a lunatic would promote and […]

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 […]

Pump It Up: Wind ‘Powered’ Britain Draining Europe’s Coal-Fired Plants via French Interconnector

Britain’s energy supply is in perfect chaos, the natural result of its increased reliance on totally unreliable wind power. Ostensibly, the UK has the benefit of its ‘superio’ offshore wind ‘resource’, providing what’s pitched as practically free electricity, caressed lovingly from mother nature. Behind-the-scenes, however, the story of what’s keeping the lights on in Britain […]

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 […]

Winter of Discontent: Brits Face Power Rationing as Wind Power Output Collapses (again and again)

Brits expecting their thousands of wind turbines to deliver the goods this winter have been disappointed, yet again. While Boris Johnson peddles his delusional plan to run the UK entirely on breezes and bluster, the typical (and wholly expected) collapse in wind power output across Britain this winter provides a taste of things to come. […]

Command & Control: Subsidised Wind Power Central to Britain’s Great Socialist Reset

As Margaret Thatcher put it: “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” That adage, however, doesn’t appear to trouble Britain’s current PM, Boris Johnson, whose plan to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on subsidies and over-the-market contracts for intermittent offshore wind power beggars belief. But that colossal crony-capitalist boondoggle, […]

Brits Biggest Losers: China Biggest Winner From Boris Johnson’s £50bn Wind Power Plan

Offshoring jobs and lining the pockets of foreign wind turbine makers is part and parcel of Britain’s giant wind power scam. Boris Johnson’s plan to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on subsidies and over-the-market contracts for intermittent offshore wind power is positively bonkers. At a time when Britain needs all the help it can get to claw itself […]

Some Transition!: Europe’s Power Prices Rocket Whenever the Sun Sets & Calm Weather Sets In

  Europe’s ‘inevitable transition’ to wind and solar is not looking so ‘inevitable’, after all. A burst of cold, calm weather has grid managers panicking as to where their next megawatt might come from. Those opportunistic ‘devils’ who command reliable, fossil-fuelled power generation sources are making out like veritable bandits. While power punters are bracing […]
