The Big ‘Green’ Lie: Why We’ll Never, Ever Be 100% Powered By Wind & Solar Power

The wind and solar acolyte in their more delusional moments readily 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 […]

The Hard Data: Why Subsidised Wind & Solar Inevitably Drive Power Prices Into Orbit

The relationship between rocketing power prices and heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar couldn’t be clearer. Every country that’s embarked on the so-called ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future is suffering from surging power prices. Add wind and solar generating capacity and watch power prices go into orbit, as […]

Total Flop: Nothing ‘Inevitable’ About So-called ‘Transition’ to Wind & Solar

A mixture of wishful thinking and childish pipedreams, there’s nothing inevitable about the so-called ‘transition’ to wind and solar – Sunset remains a fixed feature of daily life, as does stubbornly calm weather. But the acolyte and rent seeker would have us believe that these natural phenomena are either trivial obstacles to be overcome – […]

Numbers Game: Smashing The Wind & Solar Power Storage Myth With Arithmetic

Rent-seekers would have it that giant lithium-ion batteries are the simple answer to wind and solar’s hopeless intermittency, but that notion doesn’t stand first contact with the wind and solar industry’s nemesis: arithmetic. The wishful claim that we’ll all soon be powered by nothing but wind and solar is, of course, utter nonsense. And, as […]

Destination Devolution: The ‘Green’ Industrial Revolution – A Monstrous Marxist Lie

Believe that we can run on nothing but sunshine and breezes, then you’ll believe anything. No country has ever run itself on wind and solar power, alone. No country ever will. Even mythical mega-batteries can’t change that equation. Only the truly delusional believe that we can eradicate our reliance upon fossil fuels of all descriptions, […]

‘Green’ Energy’s Epic Fail: Wind Gods Conspire to Ruin Europe’s Wind Power ‘Transition’

Europe’s ‘green’ energy transition has turned into high farce, with wind power output collapsing across the continent. The wind Gods are clearly angry. Britain and Germany have been in the doldrums for weeks; the gas needed to plug the gaps is in short supply, with the price of both gas and electricity, skyrocketing. The power […]

Dead-Calm Weather Killing ‘Inevitable’ Renewable Energy ‘Transition’

Wind power is, by definition, a wholly weather-dependent power source. So, it should come as no surprise that – whenever a burst of calm-weather hits – those charged with responsibility for delivering power, as and when we need it, scramble to obtain it from any convenient and, more importantly, reliable source. Which is why Germany […]

Daily Disaster: Blackouts Only Reward For California’s Wind & Solar Nightmare

If insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results, then California’s a clear candidate for the asylum. Over the last 20 years, its maniacal wind and solar obsession has cost Californians dearly: they suffer America’s highest power prices and, when the mercury soars, are lucky to get any power, at all. Energy […]

The Hidden Victims of ‘Green’ Virtue Signalling: Renewable Energy Costs Crushing Working Poor

Subsidised wind and solar is a playground for the vain, rich and cynical, and its victims are always on the wrong side of the tracks; unseen and unheard. Energy poverty is now an entrenched feature of first-world economies wherever wind and solar play any prominence in power systems. And it’s not simply the fact that […]

Ever Ascendant: True Cost of Unreliable Wind & Solar Continues to Rise Unabated

If wind and solar power were truly competitive with conventional generators, there would be no need for even a nickel in subsidies. The fact they continue unabated says it all. Claims that the cost of wind and solar generation are falling don’t stand a minute’s serious scrutiny. One group that has applied a blowtorch to […]
