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, […]

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 […]

Fantastic Nonsense: Claims About All Wind & Solar Powered Future Completely Implausible

It takes a special brand of delusion to believe that we’ll all soon be powered entirely by sunshine and breezes. These days, those peddling that myth are guaranteed to be in on the greatest government-backed rort in history. Fantastic stories continue to appear about our imminent transition to a world that runs entirely on 100% […]

America Unleashed: Growing Rural Anger Sees More US States Ban New Wind Power Projects

Callously wrecking rural communities, it’s no wonder that big wind is struggling in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

Dead End Power Trip: Land Hungry Wind Power Always a Problem & Never a Solution

  Wind power is a problem without a solution. Output collapses when breezes turn to zephyrs and when bluster turns to a gale: wind turbines automatically shut off as wind speeds reach 25 m/s (90km/h, 55mp/h or 48 knots). As South Australians found out on 28 September 2016 – when the whole State went black, […]

Powerful Nonsense: Even With Mythical Mega-Batteries 100% Renewable Energy Remains 100% Fantasy

No country has ever powered itself entirely on sunshine and breezes. But that doesn’t deter the delusional from claiming it can be done. With the kind of fanatical zeal that led to virgins being thrown into volcanoes, politicians announce their commitment to an all sun and wind powered future, as if such a thing was […]

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 […]
