Germany’s Monumental Environmental Fail: CO2 Emissions Rise Despite €Trillions Blown on Subsidised Wind & Solar

In Germany, around €190 billion has already been burnt on renewable subsidies; currently the green energy levy costs €56 million every day.

The French generate over […]

Trillion Dollar Irony: Europe’s Wind Rush Sends CO2 Emissions Soaring

And what an expensive failure it is. In the following piece, the delicious term ‘irony’ springs […]

Ontario’s Wind Power Nightmare: Crippling Power Prices & Rising CO2 Emissions

Ontario is the place where the most bizarre energy policy in the world has seen thousands of these things speared into the backyards of homes – in the most agriculturally productive part of Canada. When we say “bizarre” we mean completely bonkers. Canada has one of the “cleanest” power generation mixes on the planet, with […]

Germans Face Wind Powered Economic Nightmare: €Billions Squandered on Subsidies, as CO2 Emissions Rise

**** The Germans went into wind power harder and faster than anyone else – and the cost of doing so is catching up with a vengeance. The subsidies have been colossal and the impacts on the electricity market chaotic. Some 800,000 German homes have been disconnected from the grid – victims of what is euphemistically […]
