Why Weather-Dependent Wind & Solar Transition Will Inevitably Fail

Spoiler alert: the reason the wind and solar transition must fail is calm weather and sunset. So much, so simple and obvious. No country has ever powered itself entirely on wind and solar; no country ever will.  Anyone telling you otherwise, is either a lunatic or they’re in on the greatest economic and environmental fraud, […]

Grid-Scale Power Storage Myth Busted: Giant Batteries Can’t Save Unreliable Wind & Solar

It only takes a moment’s reckoning to appreciate that the grid-scale storage electricity generated by wind or solar is a perfect nonsense. Those profiting from hopelessly intermittent wind and solar still claim that mega-batteries are the solution to their obvious lack of reliability. Others point to pumped hydro and even ridiculously claim that “excess” wind […]

Terminal Power Policy: California’s Wind & Solar Crusade Destined for Epic Failure

Those claiming that we’ll soon be exclusively powered by wind and solar clearly failed arithmetic. To keep an electricity grid functioning requires a precise volume of power to be generated and transmitted that precisely matches the volume of power consumed, over time and at all times. Sunset and/or calm weather have the, rather obvious, effect […]
