New Data Shows Boris ‘Bonkers’ Johnson’s Wind Power Plans Are Completely Ridiculous

The pathetic energy density of wind power is just another reason why it is so insanely expensive, compared to any meaningful power source. The bigger turbine, the further apart they need to be spread – so that the dirty wake of one turbine doesn’t affect the airflow to any turbine downwind and, thereby, reduce its […]

Obsession With Unreliable Wind Power Turns Britain’s Power Supply Into 90 Pound Weakling

Pin your energy hopes to the weather and prepare for sudden and unpredictable disappointment. Britain’s done just that: an obsession with chaotically intermittent wind power has left its grid in terminal condition turning its once reliable power supply into a 90 pound weakling; blackouts are odds-on this winter and power prices are set to rocket. […]

Boris Blown Away: True Cost of PM’s Offshore Wind Power Plan is Absolutely Staggering

A MW of intermittent offshore wind power capacity costs up to 17 times the cost of a thoroughly reliable MW of gas-fired power generation. And, whereas, the latter is available around-the-clock, the former is available when Mother Nature deems fit. And she tends to be a temperamental, old cow. One particular wheeze among Britain’s renewable […]

Reliable Energy Extortion Racket: French Threaten to Leave Britain Powerless Over Fishing Squabble

  So-called ‘interconnectors’ are what allows wind and solar obsessed states and countries to leech off their neighbour’s reliable power supplies. Australia’s wind and solar capital, South Australia does it, by quietly siphoning off coal-fired power from Victoria and New South Wales, whenever the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. Wind power obsessed Britain, […]

Fools and Other People’s Money: Wind Industry Bamboozles Boris With ‘Wind Power’s Cheap’ Myth

  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 out of its self-inflicted lockdown recession, its PM is determined to snuff out all hope, thanks to a […]

Into The Black: Calm Weather Leaves Britain’s Power Grid At Risk Of Total Collapse

Boris Johnson reckons wind power’s the future for Britain. If so, it’s a future that will soon resemble England’s bitter Dark Ages. The UK has already had its taste of mass blackouts thanks to sudden and unpredictable collapses in wind power output. Now, as Brits head into winter, it’s a case of much more of […]

Held to Ransom: Smart Meters Shut Off Power Whenever Renewable Energy Output Collapses

  So-called smart meters are a very dumb response to intermittent wind and solar, even dumber energy sources. Wherever governments attempt to run on sunshine and breezes, the push to control and micromanage household power use, quickly follows. Over the last few Australian summers, we’ve been treated to power rationing on a grand scale – […]

Puffins Pummelled: Offshore Wind Turbines Annihilating Britain’s Seabirds: Entire Species Threatened

Plans to erect thousands more of these things around Britain’s coasts, spell the death knell for millions of seabirds, with several species under threat. While Greta frets about global incineration and mass extinctions, the wind industry is doing a very fine job of extinguishing millions of birds and bats, every year. Indeed, entire species are […]

Boris Goes Bonkers: UK Set to Squander A Further £50,000,000,000 On Failed Wind Power Experiment

If insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, then Boris Johnson is clearly barking mad. The UK PM’s latest cunning plan is to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on government guaranteed fixed price contracts – paying way above market rates – subsidies and taxpayer support for chaotically intermittent wind […]

Wind Industry Claims Scorched: Wind Power Costs Are Increasing Not Decreasing

The true cost of wind power is staggering and, despite wild claims to the contrary, is becoming more even expensive, not less so. Dr John Constable and Gordon Hughes have done what the mainstream media have never done and what renewable energy rent seekers would rather they didn’t: they’ve opened the books of account to […]
