Future Mining: Fake ‘Green’ Energy Transition Entirely Dependent On Coal, Oil & Gas

Any enquiring mind has already rumbled the fact that the grand wind and solar reset is a great ‘green’ fraud. Wind turbines, solar panels and mythical mega-batteries require more energy to produce than they’ll ever repay. Miners love it, of course, with the insatiable demand that’s been generated by delusional autocrats and cynical rent-seekers. Although, […]

Hard Truths: COP Climate Cult Can’t Deal With Europe’s Monumental Wind & Solar Failure

The truth is hard and sometimes bitter, especially when it destroys everything you’ve believed in, which is why Europe’s grand wind and solar fail has upset the climate cultists who keep screaming that the world is on the brink of imminent self-immolation. The panacea, they say, is more of the very thing that’s destroyed reliable […]

Renewable Cult’s Claim That ‘Cheap’ Wind & Solar Power Cut Power Bills Goes Up In Smoke

The claim that wind and solar guarantee falling power bills is being revealed for the big fat lie that it truly is. It’s a reality that is catching up with a vengeance for Australians gullible enough to have bought it. Tens of $billions have already been squandered on subsidies to chaotically intermittent wind and solar […]

Energy In-a-Nutshell: Constant Calm Weather Means Wind Power Will Never Work

It doesn’t take a genius to connect calm weather with total collapses in wind power output. Even the functionally illiterate have the capacity to understand just how incapable wind power is of delivering power on demand. For example, depicted above – courtesy of Aneroid Energy – is the output delivered by Australian wind power outfits to […]

Renewables Repeat: Weather Event Wipes Out Australia’s Wind & Solar Capital (Once Again)

South Australia’s infamous Statewide blackout on 28 September 2016 was caused by wind turbines that couldn’t handle a vigorous spring storm front. Wind speeds exceeded 25m/s (90km/h), which meant turbines at the bulk of its (then 18) wind farms shut down automatically to protect themselves from catastrophic self-destruction. Metropolitan Adelaide was without power for hours, […]

Baseload Basics: Coal-Fired Power Plants Only Thing Guaranteed to Keep Lights On In Australia

Germans soon recognised the importance of their coal-fired power plants, forced to reopen them days after shutting them down in January 2021 because, surprise, surprise, the wind stopped blowing. And that big backpedal occurred long before Vlad Putin began putting the squeeze on the gas supplies needed to prop up those occasions when Germany’s 30,000 […]

Go Figure: No Accounting For True & Staggering Cost of Intermittent Wind & Solar

Renewable energy rent seekers and their political enablers keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time, but notionally wind-powered Germans, Danes, Californians and South Australians might beg to differ; they already suffer the world’s highest retail power prices, with worse to come. Nowhere in the world is there […]

COP27 That!: African Leaders Reject ‘Renewables Reset’ & Press For Fossil-Fuelled Future

Once again, well-fed cynical Western elites are berating developing countries about their energy use, hoping to prevent them from using the very sources that drove the Industrial Revolution and dragged millions of Europeans out of agrarian poverty, two centuries ago. Pontificating windbags are railing against the prospect of real development in the poorer parts of […]

Dream On: Finite Mineral Resources Mean Grand Wind & Solar Transition Must Inevitably Fail

As the grand delusion of an all-wind and sun-powered future unravels in Europe, rational thinkers are turning to the insatiable demand for minerals that comes with the ‘inevitable transition’ and pointing out that what’s contemplated is not only impossible, but simply ludicrous. The volumes of high-value minerals such as copper and aluminium required in every […]

New Anti-Fossil Fuel Puritans Set New Standard in Blatant Ignorance & Gross Hypocrisy

If it looks and sounds like a deranged cult, it probably is. The latest wheeze is pretending that functional, civil societies can live without coal, oil and gas. It’s perfect nonsense, to be sure, and symptomatic of an uneducated cohort who haven’t the faintest idea about what makes their safe and utterly privileged little lives […]
