Clear Winner: At Any Scale Safe, Reliable & Affordable Nuclear Is The Natural Energy Choice

There are 30 countries where you’ll find nearly 450 nuclear reactors currently operating – including the French, Americans, Canadians, Japanese and Chinese. Another 15 countries are currently building 60 reactors among them. Nuclear power output accounts for over 11% of global electricity production. But not a lick of it in Australia, thanks to an idiotic […]

Power Grab: Struggling British Households Forced to Install Pre-Paid Smart Meters

With power prices soaring out of control, it’s little wonder that thousands of British families can’t afford electricity. Every time Britain is hit with a bout of calm weather, wholesale power prices go through the roof. In response to soaring wholesale power prices, the retail price cap that kept a lid on power bills over […]

Planned Failure: Wind Power Obsession Leaves Britain’s Power Supply On Brink Of Collapse

You know policymakers have lost the plot when they start waxing lyrical about battery storage and ‘green’ hydrogen; neither of which exist at any scale; neither of which are even vaguely economic, even with massive taxpayer-funded subsidies to prop them up. English dictionary doyen, Samuel Johnson reckoned that patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels, […]

Wind Power Collapses During Calm Weather Means Soaring Power Prices & Power Rationing

The British like to ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’, but panic sets in when calm weather hits and wind power output hits the floor. What follows is another round of opportunistic price gouging by the owners of Britain’s gas-fired power plants, and remaining coal-fired plants, able to charge ludicrous amounts for electricity simply because they’re […]

Climate Changed: Calm, Gloomy Weather Killing Europe’s Grand Wind & Solar ‘Transition’

In the mother of all ironies, Europe’s wind and sun cult are complaining about uncooperative weather. The Germans have even coined a word for it: ‘dunkelflaute’ – meaning a period of gloomy, windless weather. Which, in reality, means little or nothing by way of output from their more than 30,000 wind turbines and millions of […]

UK’s Power Consumers Pay Staggering Price For Wind Power That’s Never Delivered

Obscene is one way to describe the wind power debacle playing out in Britain; power prices are punitive, in calm weather power rationing is normal. And with a bitter winter looming, the worst is yet to come. That untold £billions have already been squandered on subsidies directed to chaotically intermittent wind and solar is bad […]

Misery Guaranteed: Net Zero CO2 Emissions Targets Mean Taxing Prosperity Out of Existence

As the wind and solar ‘transition’ implodes, the response is to tax the life out of anything still moving, crushing power consumers and taxpayers in the bargain. Ronald Reagan’s quip about how governments treat their economies: “If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it” is […]

Never-‘Green’: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Creates Environment For Total Ecological Disaster

Believing that industrial wind power and solar panels are destined to improve our environment requires high-level cognitive dissonance. It demands that the true believer ignores the wholesale environmental destruction required to mine and process the minerals in rare earths needed for turbines and panels, not to mention the mega-batteries are supposed to lovingly store the […]

Subsidised Suicide: Wind & Solar Power Chaos Driving Britain’s Rocketing Power Prices

Britain’s power consumers are paying a heavy price for its maniacal obsession with intermittent wind and solar. Trashing its coal-fired power fleet and failing to keep up its nuclear plants now looks positively suicidal. However, of late, the MSM has been dishing up an alternative reality, peddling a line that power prices would be a […]

Money For Nothing: Europe Squandered $Trillions On Weather-Dependent Part Time Power

Despite Europe spending €1.2 Trillion on large-scale wind and solar generation, the amount of power being actually delivered in return is risible. Which is precisely what you’d expect from power generation sources which can only deliver anything like their nameplate capacity when the sun is up, in a cloudless sky, and the wind is blowing […]
