DIY Light & Power: Home Generator Sales Soar, Thanks to America’s Wind & Solar Rush

People want power whenever they need it, not when the wind is blowing just right or the sun’s at its zenith in a cloudless sky. Any country that has added any significant wind and/or solar capacity to its grid is suffering increasing grid instability, load shedding aka ‘demand management’ (aka planned blackouts/brownouts) and mass blackouts. […]

Endless Resuscitation Required: Wind & Solar Simply Can’t Survive Without Massive Subsidies

As soon as the subsidies for wind and solar dry up, so does the investment in generating capacity, proving the point that neither wind nor solar can survive for very long without guaranteed, government-mandated support; whether in the form of Production Tax Credits, Renewable Energy Certificates or penalties and fines laid on retailers if they […]

Deadly Serious: During Extreme Weather Unreliable Wind & Solar Threaten Life & Limb

There’s nothing funny about being frozen to death in the dark. More than half of the 200 Texans who died during the mass blackouts that struck the midwest during February this year died of hypothermia, thanks to a lack of power. In all some 4.5 million households were left freezing in the dark when solar […]

Joe Biden’s Offshore Wind Energy Mirage: Or ‘How To Squander $Trillions of Taxpayers’ Money’

For an example of how unhinged the Democrat’s energy policy is, then Biden’s offshore wind energy plan takes the cake. The fact that offshore wind power has already proven to be a phenomenally expensive way of generating electricity clearly hasn’t registered. Nor has the fact that it’s no more reliable than wind power generated onshore, […]

Californian & Texan Renewable Energy Blackouts Force Americans to Back Base-Load Power

Base-load power means the stuff generated by coal, gas, nuclear and, where nature permits, hydro. Anyone claiming that wind or solar fit within that mix has never seen a sunset or experienced a burst of dead calm weather. And there’s the rub. Mass blackouts and power rationing in notionally wind and solar powered California during […]

Subsidy Siphons: Intermittent Wind & Solar Devouring $Billions of American Taxpayers’ Dollars

Identifying the full value of subsidies to wind and solar, has been like a game of hide and seek. Whether it’s renewable energy certificates, production tax credits, preferential access to the power grid, over-the-market government guaranteed contracts, or the hidden costs of the cash penalties attached to government mandates and targets, the wind and solar […]

Monstrous Morality: ‘Progressives’ Love Costly & Unreliable Wind & Solar But Detest The Poor

So-called ‘progressives’ are long on moral posturing, but short on human compassion. Enamoured with costly wind and solar, and determined to outlaw every last reliable power source, they couldn’t care less about the inevitable spike in power prices that follows, that disproportionately punishes the least fortunate souls among us. Letting granny freeze in the dark […]

What’s Wrong with the Green New Deal? We’ll Start With the Economics

It took Americans a generation to become energy self-sufficient, but the Democrats will start destroying all that as soon as Joe Biden gets the keys to the White House. The Democrat’s Green New Deal was cooked up by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ed Markey, the kind of know-it-all socialists who can destroy economic prosperity without raising […]

Biden’s Bonanza: Poor Will Suffer Most From Democrats Wind & Solar Obsession

Joe Biden’s plan to carpet America wall-to-wall with 60,000 wind turbines and millions of solar panels comes with a staggering cost, and it’s America’s poor that will pay the heaviest price for the Democrat’s delusional energy policy. The only thing guaranteed about subsidising wind and solar is rocketing power prices and unreliable electricity. Ask a […]

Biden’s Big Backward Step: Democrat’s New Green Deal Guaranteed Economy Wrecker

For all the vitriol directed at Donald J Trump, he got one thing right: the American economy was fairly humming along until a Chinese virus derailed his project and put paid to his second term, as well. Capitalising on America’s abundant oil and gas reserves – made available with advanced drilling technology – Trump oversaw […]
