Misery Guaranteed: Net Zero CO2 Emissions Targets Mean Taxing Prosperity Out of Existence

As the wind and solar ‘transition’ implodes, the response is to tax the life out of anything still moving, crushing power consumers and taxpayers in the bargain. Ronald Reagan’s quip about how governments treat their economies: “If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it” is […]

Subsidised Suicide: Wind & Solar Power Chaos Driving Britain’s Rocketing Power Prices

Britain’s power consumers are paying a heavy price for its maniacal obsession with intermittent wind and solar. Trashing its coal-fired power fleet and failing to keep up its nuclear plants now looks positively suicidal. However, of late, the MSM has been dishing up an alternative reality, peddling a line that power prices would be a […]

Power Prices: With Wind & Solar Obsession – The Only Way Is Up and Up and Up

Rocketing power prices is one inevitable consequence of the so-called ‘inevitable’ wind and solar transition. Germans know it, so do Californians, South Australians and Danes. Brits are learning fast, too. Of course, the propaganda units that run cover for renewable energy rent seekers pretend otherwise. Francis Menton wades through their dross to reveal what Europe’s […]

Why Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Means End of Reliable & Affordable Power – Forever

The destruction of once reliable and affordable electricity supplies is so evidently deliberate, it can no longer be put down to ignorance, alone. Nothing but brazen ideology sits beneath the claim that we are a heartbeat away from a transition to an all wind and sun powered future. We are continually told that, putting aside […]

Don’t Follow The Leader: How To Avoid Britain’s Wind & Solar Energy Disaster (Just Stop Now)

Britain’s power consumers (or what’s left of them) are brewing for a full-scale revolt. 12 months ago, the average annual energy bill was £1,400 ($2,400). Energy industry analyst Cornwall Insight forecasts that the British price cap will skyrocket and the average annual bill will reach £3,582 ($6,177) next month. By January, it predicts it will […]

The Great Wind Power Swindle: Households & Businesses Being Crushed By Record Power Bills

If wind power is cheap, why does every country obsessed with it suffer rocketing power prices? The game of smoke and mirrors played by renewable energy rent-seekers, has enabled them to avoid any critical scrutiny of the role heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar play in driving power prices into orbit. A decade of […]

Suicidal Sleepwalk: Time to Stop Emulating Europe’s Wind & Solar Obsession

As Germans and Brits stock up on woollen blankets and candles, the world has a chance to avoid the perfectly avoidable. In both cases, an obsession with chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar has them scrambling for reliable energy – as if thousands of lives depend on it – which they literally do. […]

Not So Cheap: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Sends Britain’s Power Prices Into Orbit

Britain and Germany are the star players in Europe’s self-inflicted renewable energy calamity. Faced with power rationing and crippling power bills, Germans and Brits must be thanking their lucky stars that their governments had the wit and foresight to destroy their coal-fired power plants and give nuclear power the flick. Banning the exploitation of Britain’s […]

Self-Inflicted Wind & Solar Calamity Forces Brits to Embrace Reliable Nuclear Power

Necessity is the mother of energy policy reinvention, and safe, reliable and affordable nuclear is at the heart of it. In Britain, thanks to its obsession with heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar, power prices are already at astronomical levels. Its political betters are ruing the day they determined to trash their coal-fired […]

Transition to Poverty: Britain Being Crushed By Staggering Cost of Wind & Solar Obsession

What does the ‘inevitable’ wind and solar transition look like? Try power-starved Britain, where power prices are out of control, with much, much worse to come. Last October, the average annual energy bill was £1,400 ($2,400). Energy industry analyst Cornwall Insight forecasts that the British price cap will skyrocket and the average annual bill will […]
