Die Already: When Will the Wind and Solar ‘Industries’ Finally Collapse?

The wind and solar ‘industries’ are a pair that can’t survive without massive and endless subsidies, which means their days are numbered. Their ultimate demise is a matter of when, not if. The wind back in subsidies across Europe has all but destroyed the wind industry: in Germany this year a trifling 60 onshore wind turbines […]

100% Ruinable: Democrat’s New ‘Green’ Deal Would Cost Americans $4.5 Trillion

  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘New Green Deal’ heralds a new Dark Ages nightmare. Although, in fairness to the original pixie dream girl, the notion that the world’s leading energy consumer can operate entirely on sunshine and breezes is an utter fantasy. Ocasio-Cortez and her clueless acolytes run the line that because the sun and wind are […]

Trump Slams Wind Power: Making America Great Again Means Coal, Gas & Nuclear Power

Teenage girls in woolly hats weren’t the only ones screaming when Donald Trump took the presidency, the wind and solar industries were furious, too. Trump has never been a fan of the wind industry, not least because of his battle with a wind developer keen on spearing 11 of these things next to a golf […]

Pricing Vanity: Counting the Crushing Costs of Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar

The claim that renewables are cheaper than coal, gas and nuclear is simply nonsense. There’s a reason why wind and solar obsessed Germany, Denmark and South Australia fight it out for the honour of paying the world’s highest power prices. Where conventional generators can be counted on to deliver 24 x 7, wind and solar […]

Solar Subsidies: Can Create an ‘Industry’, But Can’t Make the Sun Shine

The reason for the chaotic delivery of wind and solar is hardly a mystery: sunset and/or calm weather have been with us, forever. Ah, comes the retort from RE zealots, ‘why, batteries will fix it’. Except, to get battery storage at anything like the scale necessary would involve colossal cost and, of course, even more […]

Guaranteed ‘Green’ Energy Punishment: US Renewable Portfolio Standards Send Power Prices Soaring

That reliance on chaotically intermittent wind and solar sends power prices into orbit is no surprise to a German, South Australian or Dane. That RE obsessed trio slug it out for the honour of suffering the world’s highest power prices (see above). Try as they might, RE zealots simply can’t escape the bleeding obvious: South […]

Menace to Society: Costly, Chaotic Wind Power Delivers Nothing But Community Division & Bird & Bat Carnage

Anyone looking for reasons to hate wind power, is spoiled for choice. Heavily subsidised, chaotically intermittent and an environmental nightmare, there’s a veritable smorgasbord of arguments against returning to the Dark Ages. A time when daily life was dictated by the seasons and the weather. The reason that human beings developed, harnessed and perfected thermal […]
