Living in Australia? Then You’re Being Powered By Coal – So Deal With It!

If you’re reading this post in Australia, you’re doing so thanks to coal-fired power. Don’t like it? Then get off the internet. And, while you’re at it, turn off your lights, your air-conditioner, let your smart phone run flat and, just for laughs, start tackling busy intersections without the benefit of traffic lights. Wind ‘powered’ […]

Time to Die: New PM Must Bury Turnbull’s $10bn Snowy 2.0 Pumped Hydro Boondoggle

Wind and large-scale solar are doomed, but the saviour is said to be pumped hydro; paid for, of course, with other people’s money. Touted by ex-PM Malcom Turnbull and his hapless sidekick, Josh Frydenberg as the Nation’s mega-battery, the heavily-hyped Snowy 2.0 pumped hydro scheme (shelved in the 1970s because it was uneconomic then) has […]

California Dreaming: Push for 100% Wind & Solar Doomed to End in Costly Failure

Renewable energy zealots talk about the ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future being ‘inevitable’. Except that the only thing inevitable about running on sunshine and breezes, is grid chaos and rocketing power prices. Ask a South Australian. It is also what that crazy German Corporal with the funny moustache called a “big […]

Reality Bites: ‘Transition’ to All Wind & Solar Powered Future Pure Fantasy

Plenty of destructive ideas have been launched on the back of well-crafted propaganda campaigns. The wind and solar industries have used every trick in the PR book, turning pure fantasy into an all-too-real nightmare. Where electricity was once an essential service, which governments went out of their way to insure was available to all-comers, heavily […]

Dumb & Dumber: Why Trying to Rely On Intermittent Wind & Solar Power Is Utterly Stupid

A nine-year-old knows the sun sets and the wind stops blowing, but a cohort remain convinced that that an all RE future is upon us. Which begs the question: which is dumber? Wind and solar power? Or those that believe they constitute meaningful power generation sources? Norman Rogers provides a helpful analysis below for those […]

Renewable Energy’s Dirty Dozen: 12 Reasons Why Chaotically Intermittent & Heavily Subsidised Wind & Solar Power Make No Sense

It takes a special brand of delusion to believe that the world can run on sunshine and breezes. For wind and sun worshippers, disastrous examples like South Australia – where mass blackouts and load shedding have become the new normal – require not just practiced delusion but a form of self-flagellating stoicism, as well. Oh, […]

Wind & Solar Built On Endless Lies, Broken Promises & Massive Subsidies

The greatest con job in history started with the idea that you can run an economy on sunshine and breezes. Sequentially, inevitably, every myth and lie put forward by renewable energy rent seekers and their shrinking band of acolytes gets busted and exposed. Lines like: wind power is cheaper than coal (it isn’t); the wind […]
