Frozen Wind Turbines & Solar Panels Leave Thousands of Americans Freezing In The Dark

Far from threatening human existence, coal and gas have, once again, literally saved thousands of American lives. A bout of what is now known as ‘extreme weather’ demonstrates how extremely stupid it is to rely upon sunshine and breezes for power. During December’s Big Freeze, millions of America’s solar panels were carpeted in snow and […]

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 […]

Lone Stars: Texans Count Colossal Cost of Wind & Solar ‘Transition’

Crushing power costs and power rationing follow wind and solar reliance, like night follows day. Texas is no exception. Bullying power consumers to stop consuming power is par for the course; chiselling taxpayers to cover the exorbitant cost of making up for power shortfalls when the wind stops blowing and/or the sun sets, is grist […]

Sun Cult Exuberant Over Brief Moment When Solar Delivered: Then Came Sunset…

  The infantile mentality of the renewables cult is on vivid display when they crow about wind or solar adding something meaningful to the grid. Always brief and fleeting, the 60 minutes when solar or wind did something special, is always trumpeted as if no one else cares about their power needs for the other […]

Grid-Scale Power Storage Myth Busted: Giant Batteries Can’t Save Unreliable Wind & Solar

It only takes a moment’s reckoning to appreciate that the grid-scale storage electricity generated by wind or solar is a perfect nonsense. Those profiting from hopelessly intermittent wind and solar still claim that mega-batteries are the solution to their obvious lack of reliability. Others point to pumped hydro and even ridiculously claim that “excess” wind […]

All Pain/No Gain: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Can Never Really Power Us

Calm weather and sunset mean that wind and solar will never amount to meaningful power sources. And mythical grid-scale electricity storage won’t save them, either. Never to be defeated by facts, reason and logic, wind and solar acolytes are quick to point to a rare occasion when their combined output is equal to, or greater […]

‘Green’ Energy Myth Exposed: Subsidised Wind & Solar Scam Built On Perpetual Lies

The wind and solar industries were founded on myth, built on lies and run on subsidies. The only thing they are capable of producing on a consistent basis are Pinocchio-style whoppers, starting with the notion that wind and solar power are actually good for the environment. Breached promises about delivering power on demand are met […]

Wind & Solar Transition Means Transition to Power Rationing & Rocketing Power Bills

When the sun sets and calm weather sets in, wind and solar power can’t be bought at any price. Increase the capacity of the unreliables connected to your grid and get ready for not only rocketing power bills, but routine power rationing. Once upon a time, electricity was cheap and it flowed like running water. […]

Storage Stories: Why Giant Batteries Can’t Solve Wind & Solar Power’s Natural Intermittency

It only takes a moment’s reckoning to appreciate that the grid-scale storage electricity generated by wind or solar is a perfect nonsense. It hasn’t occurred anywhere in the world; nor will it. The combined capacity of all of the batteries on Earth would store a trivial 10 minute’s worth of the World’s electricity needs. The […]

House of Cards: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Delivers Total Energy System Collapse

A house of cards has more structural integrity than a power generation system that depends on sunshine and breezes. Australia’s unfolding renewable energy debacle is a case in point. Total daily collapses solar output (aka ‘sunset’) and total collapses in wind power output (aka ‘calm weather’) are at the heart of a power pricing and […]
