Fossil Fuelled Future: How On Earth Do They Expect Wind & Sunbeams To Power Us?

In their sillier moments, renewable energy zealots pontificate about the end of fossil fuels, to be inevitably replaced by wind and solar (albeit, these days with the addition of $trillions worth of mythical mega-batteries). No country has ever powered itself on wind and solar alone; no country ever will. Instead, modern economies will continue to […]

‘Green’ Dreamin’: Powering the World With Batteries, Wind & Solar A Majestic Fantasy

When the world’s richest entrepreneur says wind and solar will never work, it’s probably time to listen. When we posted this story – Bill Gates Slams Unreliable Wind & Solar: ‘Let’s Quit Jerking Around With Renewables & Batteries’ – in February last year, listen they did – that post went viral with over 45,000 hits. Where […]

If Wind & Solar Are So Cheap, Why Are Germans Paying World’s Highest Power Prices?

Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie: Renewable Energy Transition: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Germans Suffering the World’s Highest Power Prices And, with a looming capacity crunch, Germans will be lucky to have power at all, at any […]

Are Friends Electric: Push for Industrial Electrification Exposes Costly Futility of Intermittent Wind & Solar

In their sillier moments, wind and solar advocates claim that we’ll all soon be driving electric vehicles, lovingly recharged with sunshine and breezes. In Australia, those seemingly virtuous souls with EVs are really being propelled by coal, because 85% of the electricity passing through its Eastern grid comes from coal-fired plants. It’s an irony, to […]

Dangerous Fantasy: Sierra Club’s 100% Wind & Solar Push Threatens US Power Supply

An obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar means not only spiralling retail power prices, but guarantees widespread load shedding (aka “demand management”) and blackouts (‘demand mismanagement’), whenever demand peaks and wind and solar output collapses around sunset and calm weather. The only way of explaining the push for subsidised wind and solar is money. And […]

Risible Renewables: World Finally Waking Up To Wind & Solar’s Nightmare of Nonsense

It’s 2020 and, if you believe the hype, we’re well on our way to an all wind and sun powered future. Except that – notwithstanding $trillions in subsidies, punitive mandates and punishing targets – the contribution of wind and solar to world energy demand remains risible. And – not simply because it’s fun to rain […]

No Deal: New ‘Green’ Deal Means Return to the Impoverished Dark Ages

There’s something amusing about watching well-fed, first world teenagers hit the streets to rail about fossil fuels, just before mummy collects them in a stonking V8 Land Cruiser, whisking them away to their perfectly air-conditioned homes, jampacked with every electronic gadget, imaginable. The louder and more earnest their demands for an end to the use […]
