Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘New Green Deal’ is a New Dark Ages Nightmare

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the Green-left’s favourite flibbertigibbet. Her New Green Deal, with its promise of 100% wind and solar delivering power for all, for free and for all time, should have been dismissed as fairytale nonsense, long ago. However, there are plenty of pixie dream girls and boys happy to suck it up, like there’s […]

Dancin’ With the Devil: 100% Wind & Solar Targets = Guaranteed Economic & Social Catastrophe

Delusional and dangerous, sums up those peddling 100% wind and solar targets. No country on earth has ever powered itself entirely using sunshine and breezes. And no country ever will. Sunset and calm weather are real things. On the other hand, mega-batteries are a mixture of myth and nonsense. At the margins, technically possible. But, […]

German Obsession with Wind & Solar Means Power Prices Set To Keep Skyrocketing

Germany’s renewable energy transition is an unmitigated disaster: 5 million households are struggling to pay their power bills and 340,000 have been cut from the grid, because they can’t. The push towards a mythical all wind and sun powered future continues apace. Notwithstanding it’s a technical and physical impossibility. Germans happily drain nuclear power generated […]

No Dice: Democrats ‘New Green Deal’ Nothing More Than Costly Fantasy

That we’re on the brink of an all wind and sun powered future is an audacious wheeze that sits at the heart of the ‘New Green Deal’. Any sentient being, bothering to apply a little superficial consideration, understands that the claim that wind and solar will soon provide 100% of our electricity needs is complete […]

Pointless Power: Why Wind Power Can Never Replace Coal, Gas, Nuclear or Hydro

Give a sentient being a few moments of uninterrupted consideration and they’ll soon work out why wind power can never work. Start with the weather. No one plans a weekend kite flying expedition a month in advance. And circumnavigating sailors know not to announce their arrival date at the time of departure, for much the […]

Kiwi Wind Farms ‘Lazy as Bro’: New Zealand’s Wind Turbines Produce Nothing 80% Of The Time

  Never there when you need it, often there when you don’t, wind power is, at best, an infantile joke. Promised output figures are rarely realised. What’s referred to as the “capacity factor” of any given wind farm is said to represent a proportional, and meaningful, contribution to electricity demand. Except, instead of powering the […]

American Wreckers: Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘New Green Deal’ is an Economic Suicide Pact

  Out to destroy an entire economy? Start with energy. South Australia did. A 50% RET delivers the world’s highest power prices and the chaotic delivery of wind and solar has left the wind and solar capital an international laughingstock. Frequent and mass power cuts, along with Australia’s only statewide blackout, helped on that score. […]
