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 […]

American Wreckers: Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘New Green Deal’ is an Economic Suicide Pact

  Out to destroy an entire economy? Start with energy. South Australia did. A 50% RET delivers the world’s highest power prices and the chaotic delivery of wind and solar has left the wind and solar capital an international laughingstock. Frequent and mass power cuts, along with Australia’s only statewide blackout, helped on that score. […]
