Staggering Cost: Offshore Wind Power 25 Times More Expensive Than Coal, Gas & Nuclear

Wind power is utterly pointless on every level, having been abandoned centuries ago for pretty obvious reasons, starting with the weather.

Scoundrel’s Paradise: Subsidised Wind & Solar The Greatest Scam on Earth

  The only way of explaining the push for subsidised wind and solar is money. And when we say money, we mean hundreds of billions of dollars of other people’s money.

Or those that believe they constitute meaningful power generation sources? Norman Rogers provides a helpful analysis below for those […]

Fact Factory: Smashing Big Wind Starts & Ends With Data & Detail

What the wind industry hates most are facts; facts about rocketing power prices, massive subsidies, chaotic intermittency, incessant noise and consequent harm to neighbour’s health, the destruction of birds and bats, the destruction of underground water supplies, turbines spontaneously combusting, disintegrating or throwing their blades to the four winds. We could go on. On this […]

Never Ending Story: Texans Forced to Shell Out $Billions More in Wind Power Subsidies

One thing you’ll never, ever hear from wind power outfits is a call to cut the subsidies that sustain them. Remarkably, whether in Germany, Australia, Ontario or Texas, renewables rent seekers all speak the same language. When talk turns to subsidies, you’ll only ever hear words like ‘more’. Challenge them about their nonsensical claims that […]
