All Pain/No Gain: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Can Never Really Power Us

Calm weather and sunset mean that wind and solar will never amount to meaningful power sources. And mythical grid-scale electricity storage won’t save them, either. Never to be defeated by facts, reason and logic, wind and solar acolytes are quick to point to a rare occasion when their combined output is equal to, or greater […]

The Big ‘Green’ Lie: Why We’ll Never, Ever Be 100% Powered By Wind & Solar Power

The wind and solar acolyte in their more delusional moments readily proclaims that an all-wind and sun-powered future is upon us.  Never mind sunset; never mind dead calm weather; and never mind the fact that the idea that giant lithium-ion batteries economically storing wind and solar power at grid-scale is pure hokum – for the […]

Daily Disaster: Blackouts Only Reward For California’s Wind & Solar Nightmare

If insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results, then California’s a clear candidate for the asylum. Over the last 20 years, its maniacal wind and solar obsession has cost Californians dearly: they suffer America’s highest power prices and, when the mercury soars, are lucky to get any power, at all. Energy […]

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 […]

Shifting Deckchairs: Unreliable Wind & Solar Responsible For California’s Titanic Energy Disaster

When a notionally first world economy can’t keep the lights on, you’ll find an overreliance on wind and solar at the heart of it. So it is in California. As in Germany, as in South Australia, Californians are victims of a maniacal obsession with wind turbines and solar panels.  The consequences are as perfectly predictable, […]

Dreamer’s Disease: No Way On Earth That Wind & Solar Can Provide 100% of Our Energy Needs

In their wilder moments, the wind and solar acolyte proclaims that an all-wind and sun-powered future is upon us.  Never mind sunset; never mind dead calm weather; and never mind the fact that the idea that giant lithium-ion batteries economically storing wind and solar power at grid-scale is pure hokum – for the dreamer, the […]

Another Summer of Discontent: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Californians Scrambling for Reliable Power

The sweeping blackouts that struck California last summer are back with a vengeance; another heatwave, another scramble for reliable power. The power rationing debacle that is plaguing Californians once again, is precisely what you’d expect when woolly-headed thinking overtakes sound engineering. The state-wide blackout that struck in mid-August 2020, was put down by officials to […]

Californian Cover-up: Evidence Reveals Unreliable Renewables Causing California’s Summer-time Blackouts

The pro wind and solar camp have made every effort to conceal the cause of mass blackouts in California, Texas, Germany and South Australia. With a pliant mainstream press complicit in the cover-up, it’s little wonder that the average Joe has no idea what’s going on. Well, that’s what sites like STT and Master Resource […]

Calculated Destruction: California’s $5 Trillion Plan to Wreck Its Power Grid With 100% Wind & Solar

California is synonymous with rocketing power prices and mass summer blackouts, courtesy of subsidised wind and solar. Last summer, whenever periods of peak demand coincided with sunset and calm weather, millions were plunged into sweltering darkness. But, for Californians, that indignity was simply a taste of things to come. That’s if California is truly serious […]

Regressive Renewables: California’s Wind & Solar Obsession Crushing the Poor & Vulnerable

Californian punk outfit, the Dead Kennedys sang about killing the poor. California’s renewables obsession is doing just that: power prices are now well out of reach for the working poor and its minorities are most affected. Over the last 20 years, Californian policymakers have shovelled billions in subsidies to intermittent wind and solar. The result: […]
