Grand Theft: US Taxpayers Liable For $120,000,000,000 In Subsidies to Wind & Solar

In the absence of endless subsidies there would be no wind or solar industries. Period. The minute talk turns to cutting those subsidies, the rent-seekers profiting from the wind and solar scam scream ‘blue murder’.

Corona Mania: US Wind & Solar Industries Demand $Billions In Subsidies From Virus Stimulus Package

America’s abundant gas supplies mean gas-fired power is cheaper than wind and solar and, unlike that pathetic pair, it’s available 24 x 365, whatever the weather or time-of-day. The USA awash with cheap gas, thanks to the shale oil and gas revolution that started 20 years ago.  With improving technology and numerous firms drilling for […]

‘Green’ Dreamin’: Powering the World With Batteries, Wind & Solar A Majestic Fantasy

When the world’s richest entrepreneur says wind and solar will never work, it’s probably time to listen.

‘Green’ Energy Rip-Off: Consumers Paying Double For Intermittent Wind & Solar Power

Sunset and calm weather mean wind and solar can and will never replace conventional power generators. By ‘conventional’ we mean coal, gas, nuclear and, where geography and geology permit, stored hydro and geothermal power. Show a picture like the one above – the entire output of every wind turbine connected to Australia’s Eastern Grid (with […]
