Grid-Scale Power Storage Myth Busted: Giant Batteries Can’t Save Unreliable Wind & Solar

It only takes a moment’s reckoning to appreciate that the grid-scale storage electricity generated by wind or solar is a perfect nonsense. Those profiting from hopelessly intermittent wind and solar still claim that mega-batteries are the solution to their obvious lack of reliability. Others point to pumped hydro and even ridiculously claim that “excess” wind […]

All Pain/No Gain: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Can Never Really Power Us

Calm weather and sunset mean that wind and solar will never amount to meaningful power sources. And mythical grid-scale electricity storage won’t save them, either. Never to be defeated by facts, reason and logic, wind and solar acolytes are quick to point to a rare occasion when their combined output is equal to, or greater […]

‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar Transition’s Inevitable Collision Course With Reality

The deluded few still promoting the total transition to wind and solar as ‘inevitable’ are being pounded by reality, on a daily basis. Dead calm weather is a thing; sunset is a thing. Both phenomena are inevitable, ergo, there is no way wind and solar can ever amount to meaningful power sources. Proponents have been […]

Storage Stories: Why Giant Batteries Can’t Solve Wind & Solar Power’s Natural Intermittency

It only takes a moment’s reckoning to appreciate that the grid-scale storage electricity generated by wind or solar is a perfect nonsense. It hasn’t occurred anywhere in the world; nor will it. The combined capacity of all of the batteries on Earth would store a trivial 10 minute’s worth of the World’s electricity needs. The […]

The Big ‘Green’ Lie: Why We’ll Never, Ever Be 100% Powered By Wind & Solar Power

The wind and solar acolyte in their more delusional moments readily proclaims that an all-wind and sun-powered future is upon us.  Never mind sunset; never mind dead calm weather; and never mind the fact that the idea that giant lithium-ion batteries economically storing wind and solar power at grid-scale is pure hokum – for the […]

Total Flop: Nothing ‘Inevitable’ About So-called ‘Transition’ to Wind & Solar

A mixture of wishful thinking and childish pipedreams, there’s nothing inevitable about the so-called ‘transition’ to wind and solar – Sunset remains a fixed feature of daily life, as does stubbornly calm weather. But the acolyte and rent seeker would have us believe that these natural phenomena are either trivial obstacles to be overcome – […]

Numbers Game: Smashing The Wind & Solar Power Storage Myth With Arithmetic

Rent-seekers would have it that giant lithium-ion batteries are the simple answer to wind and solar’s hopeless intermittency, but that notion doesn’t stand first contact with the wind and solar industry’s nemesis: arithmetic. The wishful claim that we’ll all soon be powered by nothing but wind and solar is, of course, utter nonsense. And, as […]

Destination Devolution: The ‘Green’ Industrial Revolution – A Monstrous Marxist Lie

Believe that we can run on nothing but sunshine and breezes, then you’ll believe anything. No country has ever run itself on wind and solar power, alone. No country ever will. Even mythical mega-batteries can’t change that equation. Only the truly delusional believe that we can eradicate our reliance upon fossil fuels of all descriptions, […]

‘Green’ Energy’s Epic Fail: Wind Gods Conspire to Ruin Europe’s Wind Power ‘Transition’

Europe’s ‘green’ energy transition has turned into high farce, with wind power output collapsing across the continent. The wind Gods are clearly angry. Britain and Germany have been in the doldrums for weeks; the gas needed to plug the gaps is in short supply, with the price of both gas and electricity, skyrocketing. The power […]

Dead-Calm Weather Killing ‘Inevitable’ Renewable Energy ‘Transition’

Wind power is, by definition, a wholly weather-dependent power source. So, it should come as no surprise that – whenever a burst of calm-weather hits – those charged with responsibility for delivering power, as and when we need it, scramble to obtain it from any convenient and, more importantly, reliable source. Which is why Germany […]
