Dancin’ With the Devil: 100% Wind & Solar Targets = Guaranteed Economic & Social Catastrophe

Delusional and dangerous, sums up those peddling 100% wind and solar targets. No country on earth has ever powered itself entirely using sunshine and breezes. And no country ever will. Sunset and calm weather are real things. On the other hand, mega-batteries are a mixture of myth and nonsense. At the margins, technically possible. But, […]

‘Clean’ Energy Kaput: Germany’s ‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ An Inevitable & Total Failure

Germany is the world leader when it comes to wind and solar and worth following, if you’re keen to return to the Dark Ages. Germans suffer Europe’s highest power prices – right up there with wind ‘powered’ Denmark and just behind South Australia, Australia’s wind and solar capital – which tops the list. Its so-called […]

Wind Industry Meltdown: North Carolina Set to Slap Total Ban On All New Wind Projects

Wind power projects are at a standstill in North Carolina, following an 18-month moratorium on new wind projects. That ban practically crushed one project that an outfit called Apex Clean Energy had planned for Chowan County. Now, legislation is working its way through North Carolina’s legislature that would result in a total ban on new […]

Power Shock: Chicago University Proves Unreliable Wind & Solar Send Power Prices Soaring

Adding chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid is a guarantee of rocketing power prices. The battle between the Big Three wind and solar ‘superpowers’ – South Australia, Germany and Denmark – is all about whether its South Australians, Germans or Danes who get to suffer the world’s highest power prices. The current ‘winner’ […]

Battery Bollocks: Why Giant Batteries Won’t Solve Wind & Solar’s Chaotic Intermittency

Almost as soon as Joe Public worked out that wind and solar can never work, RE rent seekers started babbling about giant batteries saving the day. STT will keep smashing the line about giant batteries overcoming the chaotic delivery of wind and solar, while RE zealots keep pushing it. The pitch from RE zealots is […]

Lost in Transmission: Colossal Cost of Connecting Remote Wind & Solar

RE rent seekers aren’t satisfied with $trillions in wind and solar subsidies, now they want $trillions for power grids to the middle of nowhere. The Australian wind industry has a habit of spearing its turbines way beyond the back of beyond. Increasingly remote wind farm locations require serious upgrades to transmission infrastructure, adding hundreds of $millions […]

Trumping Turbines: Five Good Reasons to Hate Heavily Subsidised & Chaotically Intermittent Wind Power

You don’t have to be a genius to work out that wind power is the greatest environmental and economic fraud of all time. President of the United States of America, Donald J Trump has been railing about it for years. And he keeps doing so. Much to the disgust and horror of his many detractors. […]
