Climate alarmists continue to berate us that the world is doomed and the only ‘solution’ offered is channelling $trillions more in subsidies to intermittent wind and solar. Their calls for ‘immediate action’ really means more of the same: more subsidies for more windmills and more solar panels; which really means the end of reliable and … Continue reading Michael Shellenberger Exposes Climate Industrial Complex in ‘Apocalypse Never’

The Great Wind Delusion: Why Wind Power Is Worse Than Useless
The notion that a nation can run on sunshine and breezes is worse than delusional, it’s flat out dangerous. Once resilient and reliable electricity generation and delivery systems designed around the certitude of coal, gas and hydro have been replaced by pure and utter, weather driven chaos. Rapid and reactionary load shedding (“demand management”) and … Continue reading The Great Wind Delusion: Why Wind Power Is Worse Than Useless
Renewable Energy Armageddon: Australia’s Self-Inflicted Power Pricing & Supply Calamity
Chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar are at the heart of Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity. Like a runaway train, the disaster is unfolding before the passengers' very eyes, with state and federal politicians apparently incapable of bringing the disaster to a halt and ever-present rent seekers throwing the throttle wide open. … Continue reading Renewable Energy Armageddon: Australia’s Self-Inflicted Power Pricing & Supply Calamity
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Let’s Not Make A New ‘Green’ Deal
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 … Continue reading Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Let’s Not Make A New ‘Green’ Deal
On The Level: Why Unreliable Wind & Solar Increase Power Prices
The relationship between rocketing power prices and chaotically intermittent wind and solar is crystal clear. Let’s call it Germany, Denmark and South Australia, where wind and solar obsessions have driven power prices into orbit. While RE zealots continue to chant the mantra that wind and solar are practically free, and getting cheaper all the time, … Continue reading On The Level: Why Unreliable Wind & Solar Increase Power Prices
Rigged & Rotten: How Power Market Rules Were Bent to Benefit Intermittent Wind & Solar
Electricity that is not available as and when consumers need it has no natural commercial value. An ICU patient on life support isn’t interested in whether the weather is going to keep her alive. For that reason, chaotically delivered wind and solar just don’t add up. The only thing that adds up are massive (and … Continue reading Rigged & Rotten: How Power Market Rules Were Bent to Benefit Intermittent Wind & Solar
With Wind & Solar’s Days Over, Who Cleans Up Europe’s Renewable Energy Mess?
Across Europe, investment in new wind and solar is in freefall. So far this year, the Germans installed a measly 35 of these things onshore. As their massive subsidies get cut and furious rural residents revolt, the wind and solar industries are facing their inevitable Armageddon. The inevitable surge in power prices and grid chaos … Continue reading With Wind & Solar’s Days Over, Who Cleans Up Europe’s Renewable Energy Mess?
Lights Out: Millions of Brits Come to Grips With Wind ‘Powered’ Future – In the Dark!!
Pinning your power needs on the weather? Then expect mixed results. South Australians living in Australia’s wind power blackout capital, know the drill, well-enough. And now their cousins in the UK have had a taste of what it is to be suddenly living in the Dark Ages, after a sudden output collapse at an … Continue reading Lights Out: Millions of Brits Come to Grips With Wind ‘Powered’ Future – In the Dark!!
Blackout Nation: Wind Power Output Collapse Leaves Millions of Brits Totally Powerless
Proving pride comes before a fall, UK’s wind industry was crowing about delivering 47% Britain’s power one-minute and ducking for cover the next, after the collapse of output at an offshore wind farm delivered 100% chaos for businesses, households, hospital patients and commuters. With its obsession for chaotic wind power running unabated, Brits can expect … Continue reading Blackout Nation: Wind Power Output Collapse Leaves Millions of Brits Totally Powerless
End Game: Subsidy Wind Down Heralds Collapse in Wind & Solar Investment
Wind and solar power are always and everywhere the product of massive (and seemingly) endless subsidies. Except, there is an end. There always is. Australia’s Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target expires in December 2030. The 33,000 GWh annual target was meant to be reached with a surge in wind and large-scale solar capacity by 2020, but … Continue reading End Game: Subsidy Wind Down Heralds Collapse in Wind & Solar Investment
