Crunch Time: Demand For Power On Demand Means Wind & Solar Craze All But Over

Power-starved Brits and Germans will soon tell you how important having power on demand truly is. And they’ll also tell you what it’s like to receive a power bill that you’ve absolutely no hope of paying. After years of telling us how cheap and easy our inevitable transition to an all-wind and sun-powered future would […]

Crippling Cost of ‘Green’ Energy Means Millions of Americans Can’t Afford Power

Claims that wind and solar are cheap, simply don’t add up. Glaring examples such as Germany, Denmark and South Australia tell the tale. Like night follows day, add heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid, and power prices are bound to spiral out of control. California led America in the race […]

Renewables Regret: Power-Starved Europeans Rue Their Governments’ Wind & Solar Obsession

Eating cold baked beans in the dark might not be everyone’s idea of fun, but power-starved Europeans are getting used to that kind of indignity. German households and businesses are already suffering Europe’s highest power prices; since Putin’s Ukrainian adventure began, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per […]

Component Liberation: Wind Turbines Keep Throwing 8-20 Tonne Blades In All Directions

Like playing Where’s Waldow, wind turbines keep losing blades and their owners apparently have trouble finding them again. Which seems strange, given that these suckers are 45-70m long and weigh between 8 and 20 tonnes. The trade euphemism for blades flying in all directions is “component liberation”, as if that abuse of the English language […]

Reliable, Safe & Affordable: Small Modular Reactors Set to Deliver Real Energy Transition

With Europe’s renewable energy disaster laid bare for all to see, the focus is now on “real energy” – power that’s available 24 x 7, irrespective of the weather and where the Sun sits in the sky. For fairly obvious reasons, the Small Modular Reactor has captured the imagination of power-starved Europeans, with two key […]

After 40 Years Of Massive Subsidies Wind & Solar ‘Industries’ Still Begging For More

Back in 1983 the American Wind Industry Association claimed that solar and wind would be “competitive and self-supporting on a national level by the end of the decade if assisted by tax credits and augmented by federally sponsored R&D”. That was 39 years ago. Over that span of time, there has been no lack of […]

No ‘Right’ Place: Industrial Wind Turbines Don’t Belong In ANYONE’S Backyard

As wind turbines are incapable of generating power on demand and wouldn’t last a second without massive subsidies, there is no ‘right’ place for them. Any power generation source that can’t deliver electricity on demand is pointless, so talk about appropriate siting is pure nonsense. Why bother? Rent seekers and crony capitalists are the only […]

All Pain/No Gain: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Can Never Really Power Us

Calm weather and sunset mean that wind and solar will never amount to meaningful power sources. And mythical grid-scale electricity storage won’t save them, either. Never to be defeated by facts, reason and logic, wind and solar acolytes are quick to point to a rare occasion when their combined output is equal to, or greater […]

Why Solar Power Can’t Meet Net Zero Carbon Dioxide Emissions Targets

Net-zero carbon dioxide emissions targets are driven by climate alarmists and renewable energy rent seekers, eager to profit from the expansion of the great wind and solar subsidy scam. This band of profiteers and charlatans rely upon the notion that wind turbines and solar panels are the only means of reducing carbon dioxide gas emissions […]

‘Green’ Energy Myth Exposed: Subsidised Wind & Solar Scam Built On Perpetual Lies

The wind and solar industries were founded on myth, built on lies and run on subsidies. The only thing they are capable of producing on a consistent basis are Pinocchio-style whoppers, starting with the notion that wind and solar power are actually good for the environment. Breached promises about delivering power on demand are met […]
