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 […]

Renewable Energy’s Dirty Dozen: 12 Reasons Why Chaotically Intermittent & Heavily Subsidised Wind & Solar Power Make No Sense

It takes a special brand of delusion to believe that the world can run on sunshine and breezes. For wind and sun worshippers, disastrous examples like South Australia – where mass blackouts and load shedding have become the new normal – require not just practiced delusion but a form of self-flagellating stoicism, as well. Oh, […]

Wind & Solar’s Mega-Cost Delivers Mega-Failure: RE Supplying Less than 1% During Peak Demand

If you live in Australia, and you’re reading this post, you’re doing so thanks to coal. If you don’t like it, shut your device down now. The electricity that’s powering it, your home, the internet, etc, etc isn’t coming from sunshine and breezes. It’s coming from a coal-fired power plant. So, deal with it! Over […]

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 […]

Delusion & Fantasy Drives RE Advocates’ Bizarre Claims of All-Wind & Solar Powered Future

Anyone pumping wind and solar in 2018 is rightly regarded as a little ‘touched’, but those still suggesting an all wind and sun powered future are positively ‘certifiable’. Millions of solar panels have been strewn around the planet; and hundreds of thousands of wind turbines have been speared in every corner of both hemispheres. And […]

‘Green’ Energy’s Poisonous Legacy: Millions of Toxic Turbine Blades Destined for African Landfills

Environmentalists of the kind lovingly called ‘tree huggers’ (rather than wind turbine worshippers) are finally cottoning on to the fact that the wind industry is anything but the ‘clean, green’ energy source its proponents claim it to be. Real eco-warriors aren’t happy to bury inconvenient wind industry facts, instead, they’re furious at the fact that […]
