Toxic Shock: Millions of Wind Turbine Blades Leave Poisoned Landfill Legacy For Generations To Come

Troubled teenagers demanding an all wind and sun powered future are setting themselves up for an almighty toxic shock, with hundreds of millions of wind turbine blades destined for landfill. As Steve St. Angelo reports from the USA, wind turbine blades are non-recyclable due to the fact that they are a complex composite of highly […]

Rusting Monuments to Stupidity: Staggering Cost of Cleaning Up the Wind Industry’s Giant Mess

The wind industry is like the partying college students that trash their parent’s house, never sparing a thought about cleaning up the mess afterwards. With subsidies being slashed across the globe, the great wind industry ‘party’ will inevitably draw to a close. And the adults will need to raise the tricky issue about who cleans […]

Dangerous Fantasy: Sierra Club’s 100% Wind & Solar Push Threatens US Power Supply

An obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar means not only spiralling retail power prices, but guarantees widespread load shedding (aka “demand management”) and blackouts (‘demand mismanagement’), whenever demand peaks and wind and solar output collapses around sunset and calm weather. The only way of explaining the push for subsidised wind and solar is money. And […]

Sunset Industry: US Taxpayers Liable As Giant Solar-Thermal Power Plant (Crescent Dunes) Goes Bankrupt

  US taxpayers are on the hook for hundreds of $millions following the spectacular financial collapse of the world’s biggest solar-thermal power plant, Crescent Dunes, situated in the Nevada desert, north-west of Las Vegas. South Australians (victims of their government’s obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar) can count themselves lucky that they didn’t end […]

Hearts of Darkness: Richest Nations Push Unreliable Renewables to Keep Africans Forever Poor

There’s something altogether cynical about well-healed nations forcing the impoverished to embrace expensive and unreliable wind and solar. It is, of course, all done in the name of ‘saving the planet’. [Note to Ed: Not to mention saving the manufacturers of industrial wind turbines and solar panels, who are struggling back home]. As any economist […]

Risible Renewables: World Finally Waking Up To Wind & Solar’s Nightmare of Nonsense

It’s 2020 and, if you believe the hype, we’re well on our way to an all wind and sun powered future. Except that – notwithstanding $trillions in subsidies, punitive mandates and punishing targets – the contribution of wind and solar to world energy demand remains risible. And – not simply because it’s fun to rain […]

Game Changer: US Start-up’s Small Nuclear Plants to Make Big Difference to World’s Energy Future

Anyone banging on about carbon dioxide gas and climate change, and not promoting nuclear power, can’t be taken seriously. Nuclear power is the only stand-alone power generation source that does not emit carbon dioxide gas during the generation process. And, unlike chaotically intermittent wind and solar, it’s available 24 x 365. That the world’s third largest […]
