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 […]

Wind & Solar Fantasy Unplugged: 100% RE Means Total Economic Destruction

There’s something almost comical when RE zealots try to outdo each other. Those that worship wind and solar are deluded, to be sure. However, those claiming that nature’s wonder fuels can deliver 100% of our power needs are truly ‘touched’. At a physical level it is, of course, possible. But building TWhs worth of pumped […]

The BIG Lie: Energy Boffin’s Claims Australia Can Go 100% Renewable = 100% Fantasy

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. And the reason for that can be all spelt out in a picture: see above the collective output of […]

Economic Fantasy: Battery ‘Solution’ to Intermittent Wind & Solar Would Cost $Trillions

It took the proletariat a nanosecond to work out that wind power cannot, and will never, work as a meaningful power generation source. Graphs like the one above – depicting the entire output of every wind turbine connected to Australia’s Eastern Grid (spread across four states, NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia) – quickly gave […]

Long Way to Run: Fossil Fuel Powers the World Now & For Generations to Come

  The zealots that pump up the future for wind and solar power are programed to ignore the present and bound to ignore the past. For a few centuries in human history, windmills were the only game in town. Then, in the 18th Century, the captains of British scientific and engineering endeavour harnessed thermal power, […]

Ready to Rely on Wind & Solar For Your Power? Then Get Ready to Freeze or Boil in the Dark

In their more deluded moments, wind and sun worshippers claim that, if only fossil fuel guzzling, climate-deniers would shrivel up and die, nature’s ‘wonder fuels’ could easily provide 100% of everybody’s energy needs, now and until kingdom come – and do so absolutely free. Meanwhile, back on Earth, even on their best days, the contribution […]
