Jumbo Noise Problem: Africa’s Elephants Hate Thumping Droning Wind Turbine Noise

Thumping, grinding wind turbine noise has always been the elephant in the room for the wind industry. Now, it’s the elephants themselves who’ve signalled just how annoying low-frequency wind turbine noise is. Renowned for their acutely sensitive hearing in the lower frequency register, the long-distance communication between Africa’s elephants is being drowned out by an […]

Arrested Development: Without Nuclear Power ‘Net-Zero’ Emissions Targets Are An Economic Suicide Pact

Every advance made by humankind can trace its roots to the control and use of energy. The Industrial Revolution wasn’t powered by wood, nor was the rapid rise of the East Asian economies, over the last generation. Smug in their seemingly dominant prosperity, the leaders of Western nations are bidding to outdo each other in […]

Biden’s Rapacious ‘Green’ Dream: Green New Deal Devouring World’s Rare Earth Minerals

Clean’, ‘green’ wind and solar were meant to save the planet, but the obsession with the unreliables will only expedite its consumption. Every solar panel and every wind turbine are an aggregation of minerals, requiring mountains of real energy in their creation. Many of those minerals are scarce, generally referred to as “rare earths”. Thanks […]

Renewable Energy Obsession Means Brits Pay £10.8 Billion in Wind & Solar Subsidies Every Year

Unreliable, inefficient and insanely costly, there’s plenty to dislike about subsidised wind and solar. British power prices have rocketed; ‘reliability’ is now just a catchphrase; energy poverty is the new normal; and its PM, Boris Johnson apparently couldn’t care less. Indeed, he seems even more fixated on unreliable and unaffordable power, than his predecessors. Dr […]

It Just Ain’t Green: Endless Environmental Havoc Caused By Industrial Wind & Solar Power

The true environmental and social cost of intermittent wind and solar is simply staggering. Millions of solar panels are already being dumped in landfill, and millions of nonrecyclable wind turbine blades are joining them; altogether creating a toxic legacy the generation who blindly championed so-called ‘green’ energy. However, long before the panels and blades get […]

Insatiable: Coal-Fired Power Continues its Dominance in Energy Hungry China

The anti-energy/anti-civilisation squad keep predicting the end of coal and coal-fired power. But in China and India the demand for the black stuff – and the cheap and reliable power it delivers – is insatiable, and rising. Notwithstanding a global economic wind down during the Covid-19 outbreak, Chinese demand for coal is about to reach […]

Pointless: Europe’s Wind & Solar Generators Rarely Deliver Power When It’s Actually Needed

Wind and solar are an all or nothing kind of prospect; when the Sun’s at its zenith and the wind’s blowing just right, wind and solar generators actually start to look like ‘industries’. But, a spell of calm weather and/or sunset soon buries that notion. Power delivered when it’s not needed is worthless, as are […]

Relying on Weather-Dependent Wind & Sunshine-Dependent Solar? Then Stock Up On Candles

One of the greatest lies being told is that we’re well on our way to an all wind and sun powered future. Pitched as the ‘inevitable transition’, the 100% wind and solar story overlooks at least two inconvenient facts: sunset and calm weather. And when one or other or both of those phenomena materialise, the […]

Bullying, Lies & Deceit: Just Another Day’s Work For The Wind Industry

In order to worm their way into rural communities, wind industry goons employ a mix of varnished lies, deceit and old-school thuggery. Over the last decade, wind power outfits have been able to beguile the gullible and hoodwink the unsuspecting.  They usually start with a colossal lie and work up from there.  However, as soon […]

Joe Biden’s Offshore Wind Energy Mirage: Or ‘How To Squander $Trillions of Taxpayers’ Money’

For an example of how unhinged the Democrat’s energy policy is, then Biden’s offshore wind energy plan takes the cake. The fact that offshore wind power has already proven to be a phenomenally expensive way of generating electricity clearly hasn’t registered. Nor has the fact that it’s no more reliable than wind power generated onshore, […]
