Snow Job: Giant Pumped Hydro Scheme Set to Destroy Australia’s Favourite National Park

Future generations will wonder why this one destroyed the planet, while claiming to save it, using completely useless industrial wind turbines and solar panels. Whether it’s dumping hundreds of thousands of toxic solar panels and windmill blades into landfill, or the toxic lakes in China where the rare earths are processed that make them, the […]

Situation Critical: Massive Wind Power Collapses Threaten Australia’s Entire Eastern Power Grid

Wind power is the joke where the punchline is a mixture of rocketing power prices and a grid on the brink of collapse. None of which is particularly funny for those suffering from one and threatened by the other. As to the latter, this country’s maniacal obsession with heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and […]

‘Green’ Delusions: Why Wind & Solar Can Never Replace Coal, Gas & Nuclear Power

It takes a special brand of delusion to still believe that chaotically intermittent wind and solar can replace conventional generators, such as coal, gas and nuclear plants. But they’re still out there. Indeed, some of them hold high, elected office. Or once did. Maths, physics, economics and meteorology are not difficult disciplines. But mastery thereof […]

Power Deficit: Wind Power’s Hopeless Intermittency Leaves Germans Scrambling For Reliable Generation

What seemed like a good idea at the time, has turned into an unmitigated disaster. Germany threw more at wind and solar than any other country on earth; its government has done everything in its power to make it work. It’s still at it. Except there’s a couple of things that it can never control: […]

Overhyped: Europe’s Largest RE Battery Can Power Britain For 60 Seconds When Wind Power Fails

The hyperbole that greets the announcement of another giant battery is like the toxic plume they give off when they explode in flames. And, as we recently reported, that’s an increasingly likely occurrence: Giant Batteries Bomb: Renewable Energy Storage Systems Literally Setting The World On Fire At a loss to deal with the hopeless and chaotic […]

‘Green’ Dreamin’: Powering the World With Batteries, Wind & Solar A Majestic Fantasy

When the world’s richest entrepreneur says wind and solar will never work, it’s probably time to listen. When we posted this story – Bill Gates Slams Unreliable Wind & Solar: ‘Let’s Quit Jerking Around With Renewables & Batteries’ – in February last year, listen they did – that post went viral with over 45,000 hits. Where […]

‘Green’ Energy Rip-Off: Consumers Paying Double For Intermittent Wind & Solar Power

Sunset and calm weather mean wind and solar can and will never replace conventional power generators. By ‘conventional’ we mean coal, gas, nuclear and, where geography and geology permit, stored hydro and geothermal power. Show a picture like the one above – the entire output of every wind turbine connected to Australia’s Eastern Grid (with […]
