‘Green’ Magic: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ The Greatest Con Job in History

Sunset and calm weather mean that wind and solar will never be meaningful power sources. Talk about ‘storage’ overcoming their chaotic intermittency, is just that: talk. The sum total of the world’s grid scale storage capacity for electricity is risible. The biggest single battery in the world, sits in a sheep paddock in South Australia’s […]

100% Ruinable: Democrat’s New ‘Green’ Deal Would Cost Americans $4.5 Trillion

  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘New Green Deal’ heralds a new Dark Ages nightmare. Although, in fairness to the original pixie dream girl, the notion that the world’s leading energy consumer can operate entirely on sunshine and breezes is an utter fantasy. Ocasio-Cortez and her clueless acolytes run the line that because the sun and wind are […]

Half-Baked Hoax: Claims For All Wind & Solar Powered Future Are Pure Fantasy

No country has ever powered itself entirely with wind and solar. No country ever will. The image above is not the crazed doodlings of a maniac, it’s the combined output of every wind turbine connected to Australia’s Eastern Grid last month thanks to Aneroid Energy.

Pricing Vanity: Counting the Crushing Costs of Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar

The claim that renewables are cheaper than coal, gas and nuclear is simply nonsense.

When the Wall Street Journal starts to question the inevitability of our ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future, you know the gig is up. Until now, the WSJ has been a champion for the wind and solar ‘industries’ in the US. Playing to the myth that the wind and sun are ‘free’, […]

New ‘Green’ Deal Nonsense: 100% Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Product of Pixie Dream Girl Fantasies

Whenever you see ‘transition’ in a sentence about energy, you know you’re being conned. The meme has it that the status quo is over, and now we’re off on an inevitable and inexorable path towards an all wind and sun powered future; not a matter of if, mind you, but simply when. Step back for […]

Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘New Green Deal’ is a New Dark Ages Nightmare

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the Green-left’s favourite flibbertigibbet. Her New Green Deal, with its promise of 100% wind and solar delivering power for all, for free and for all time, should have been dismissed as fairytale nonsense, long ago. However, there are plenty of pixie dream girls and boys happy to suck it up, like there’s […]
