Subsidy Farming: Wind Power Could Never Make a Profit Without Massive Subsidies

Squandering other people’s money is what the wind and solar industries do best. Let’s face it, they wouldn’t exist without massive and endless subsidies. The chaotic power they occasionally produce has no commercial value and as Warren Buffett put it “We get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That’s the […]

Solar Eclipsed: Renewable Energy Investors Fret as Share Price Plummets

The hopes of renewable energy investors depend on subsidies to wind and solar lasting forever. Sadly, for those with skin in the game, the longevity of the subsidies, targets, mandates, penalties and fines – that make intermittent wind and solar profitable – are limited. The idea was, of course, that after a decade or so […]

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 […]

Red Faces: Mainstream Journos Quietly Drop Support For Intermittent Wind & Solar

Often wrong, never in doubt, the mainstream press is responsible for the idea that we’re well on our way to an all wind and sun powered future. The need for massive and endless subsidies is ignored; and the chaotic intermittency of wind and solar, brushed aside with waffle about mega-batteries saving the day. The mainstream […]

Crunch Time: Australia’s Renewable Energy Rent-Seekers Suicidal After Coalition Victory

  The ‘shock’ Federal election result has left RE energy rent seekers reeling. What was meant to be a Green/Labor landslide – with the promise that subsidies to wind and solar would double and be extended until kingdom come – returned not only the Liberal/National Coalition to power, but left the Energy Minister, Angus Taylor […]

Beggaring Belief: No Sensible German Believes in Wind & Solar ‘Transition’, Anymore

  Mainstream media have gone quiet on Germany’s ‘inevitable’ transition to an all wind and sun powered future. The debacle that’s playing out in Deutschland apparently doesn’t suit their narrative, anymore. It’s like kids hanging onto the belief that Santa Claus is real, long after they’ve tumbled to the fact that it’s their fat Uncle […]

Blown Away: Australians Reject Labor’s 50% RET & Plans for Giant Wind & Solar Roll-out

  Bill Shorten’ 45% CO2 emissions reduction target and his 50% Renewable Energy Target was meant to deliver a Labor landslide. It didn’t. Bill Shorten and his acolytes believed that Australian voters would flock to his grand – ‘save the planet’ – plans for sunshine and breezes. Their propaganda wing, GetUp! made it seem like […]
