Offshore Killing Fields: Wind Industry ‘Saves Planet’ By Slaughtering Whales, Dolphins & More

The US government granted the wind industry a license to kill whales, porpoises and dolphins and it’s doing so at an astonishing rate. Dozens of whale carcasses have washed-up along the Atlantic coast in the last few months, joining dozens of porpoises and dolphins that met the same fate. More than 500,000 Americans have united … Continue reading Offshore Killing Fields: Wind Industry ‘Saves Planet’ By Slaughtering Whales, Dolphins & More

Damned By Their Silence: What Happened to the Grid Engineers Who Fought For Reliable Power?

Engineers built reliable and affordable power supplies; ideologues obsessed with intermittent wind and solar are rapidly dismantling them. Why engineers allowed that to happen is something of a mystery. Sure, renewable energy rent-seekers have exploited opportunities created around ‘saving the planet’ by purportedly ridding it of man-made carbon dioxide gas by using wind turbines and … Continue reading Damned By Their Silence: What Happened to the Grid Engineers Who Fought For Reliable Power?

Making ‘Green’ Hydrogen From Part-Time Wind and Solar = Mission Impossible

The only ‘value’ in weather-dependent wind and sunshine-dependent solar comes from the subsidies they attract. There is, of course, no commercial value in an energy source that cannot be delivered as and when consumers need it. In plenty of places around the globe, the subsidies are on the wane. But renewable energy rent-seekers reckon they’re … Continue reading Making ‘Green’ Hydrogen From Part-Time Wind and Solar = Mission Impossible

Man Without A Plan: Joe Biden’s Energy Policy is Utterly Incoherent and Totally Destructive

America’s energy policy has been captured by the same class of ideologues and rent seekers, that have destroyed reliable and affordable power supplies in Europe, Australia and elsewhere. So, it’s probably not entirely fair to attribute the blame to the bumbling Joe Biden. Struggling with signs of senile dementia, on occasions, Biden gives the appearance … Continue reading Man Without A Plan: Joe Biden’s Energy Policy is Utterly Incoherent and Totally Destructive

World’s Greatest Environmental Frauds: There’s Nothing ‘Clean’ or ‘Green’ About Wind & Solar

The hackneyed claim that wind and solar power are ‘clean’ and ‘green’ doesn’t stand first contact with reality. Both chew up monumental volumes of minerals, chemicals, rare earths and energy just to create the panels and turbines. Both leave monumental volumes of waste when turbines and panels are spent - after a decade or so … Continue reading World’s Greatest Environmental Frauds: There’s Nothing ‘Clean’ or ‘Green’ About Wind & Solar

America & Canada Get Serious & Go Full-Steam Ahead With Nuclear Renaissance

Nuclear power’s timely renaissance is being led by Canada and the US, with plenty of others following suit. Any country that’s serious about reliable and affordable electricity is getting serious about nuclear power. Britain is crab-walking away from its offshore wind power disaster, with its government recently announcing plans to pump up nuclear power generation, … Continue reading America & Canada Get Serious & Go Full-Steam Ahead With Nuclear Renaissance

Blackout Prevention Intervention: Wind & Solar ‘Powered’ Texas Spends $Billions On Gas-Powered Plants

Texas has squandered a cool $66 billion on building its wind and solar capacity and the infrastructure needed to support it. The subsidies that have driven the the wind and solar onslaught - principally the Production Tax Credit, as well as state-mandated feed-in tariffs), deliberately designed to relegate the reliable generators (nuclear, coal and gas) to … Continue reading Blackout Prevention Intervention: Wind & Solar ‘Powered’ Texas Spends $Billions On Gas-Powered Plants

Energy ‘Transition’ Built On Grand Delusion That Wind & Solar Power Is Cheap & Reliable

War is peace’, ‘freedom is slavery’ and ‘wind and solar power are cheap and reliable’. Big Brother and his Ministry of Truth would, no doubt, approve of the approach taken by rent-seeking crony capitalists and their political enablers to give the appearance of solidity to pure wind, and the impression that the sun shines 24 … Continue reading Energy ‘Transition’ Built On Grand Delusion That Wind & Solar Power Is Cheap & Reliable

Crashed & Burned: Soaring Construction & Maintenance Costs Make Offshore Wind Power Projects ‘Unbackable’

The wind industry is moaning about the soaring cost of spearing these things into the seafloor, miles offshore. Rent-seekers are backing away from dozens of touted projects - as if they’d never thought about the insane costs and low energy returns. Any seafaring soul could have easily explained that the operating cost of maintaining any … Continue reading Crashed & Burned: Soaring Construction & Maintenance Costs Make Offshore Wind Power Projects ‘Unbackable’

Costly & Pathetic ‘Performance’: Thousands of Wind Turbines Being Replaced After 12 Years

Wind industry shills still make ludicrous claims about turbines running on the smell of an oily rag and lasting for 25 years or more, needing little more than a hug from time to time. They never talk about the operations and maintenance costs which - as reported by one Australian outfit Infigen - runs at … Continue reading Costly & Pathetic ‘Performance’: Thousands of Wind Turbines Being Replaced After 12 Years
