Simply Staggering: Gobsmacking Cost of Using Batteries to ‘Store’ Wind & Solar Power

  Rent-seekers would have us believe that battery storage will soon cure wind and solar’s hopeless intermittency, notionally smoothing out the highs and filling in the lows (aka sunset and calm weather). The only thing wrong with that narrative is the fact that it is an outright lie. Lithium-ion battery technology is probably as good […]

Total Bunkum: Why Running On 100% Wind & Solar Is 100% Impossible

No country in the world is running on wind and solar power alone; no country ever will. Calm weather and sunset guarantee it. Every routine collapse in wind and solar power output (for the reasons above) requires the total capacity lost in consequence to come from somewhere, and that ‘somewhere’ is going to be a […]

Clown Factor: Trying to Explain Our Idiotic and Self-Destructive Wind & Solar Obsession

Remember the class clown? The idiot who couldn’t help himself, always in trouble and too witless to know why. Well, he’s now firmly in charge of energy policy, which in its design and implementation resembles the chaos of a mismanaged three-ringed circus. As the adage goes, don’t put down to conspiracy what can be chalked […]

Never Sustainable: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Just Another Failed Utopian Dream

The wind and solar ‘transition’ is being sold as Utopia – but anyone prepared to believe that will believe anything. In Germany and Britain, a growing number are starting to work it out. They’ve been lied to; they’re angry and there will be a political vengeance against those who have delivered misery of a type […]

‘Green’ Energy Fantasy Unravels As Reality Grips Wind & Solar Obsessed Europe

What’s dressed up as “progress” these days increasingly looks and sounds like a drift back to our Dark Age of misery, poverty and ignorance. Anyone who still thinks wind turbines and solar panels equate with Earthly salvation, is more than just a little confused. But that’s the very point and purpose of those pushing the […]

Chasing The ‘Green’ Energy Dream: Or ‘How I Wasted 20 Years of My Life’

Plenty start out as fans of wind and solar power and turn against it, but it’s hard to find opponents who later become supporters. Present the facts to reasonable people, and they’ll want to know how the wind and solar scam got started in the first place and why it hasn’t been stopped in its […]

‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar Transition’s Inevitable Collision Course With Reality

The deluded few still promoting the total transition to wind and solar as ‘inevitable’ are being pounded by reality, on a daily basis. Dead calm weather is a thing; sunset is a thing. Both phenomena are inevitable, ergo, there is no way wind and solar can ever amount to meaningful power sources. Proponents have been […]

Utterly Useless: Wind & Solar Costly, Pointless & Can’t Reduce CO2 Emissions

No country has ever powered itself entirely with wind and solar; no country ever will. The idea we’ll all be powered exclusively by wind and solar is pure fantasy and talk about giant batteries soon making that pipe dream possible is just as unhinged. The occasional claim that wind and solar satisfied 100% of power […]

Terminal Power Policy: California’s Wind & Solar Crusade Destined for Epic Failure

Those claiming that we’ll soon be exclusively powered by wind and solar clearly failed arithmetic. To keep an electricity grid functioning requires a precise volume of power to be generated and transmitted that precisely matches the volume of power consumed, over time and at all times. Sunset and/or calm weather have the, rather obvious, effect […]

Dreamer’s Disease: No Way On Earth That Wind & Solar Can Provide 100% of Our Energy Needs

In their wilder moments, the wind and solar acolyte proclaims that an all-wind and sun-powered future is upon us.  Never mind sunset; never mind dead calm weather; and never mind the fact that the idea that giant lithium-ion batteries economically storing wind and solar power at grid-scale is pure hokum – for the dreamer, the […]
