World’s Most Expensive Joke: $2 Trillion Squandered on Wind & Solar (So Far)…

The point, if there was one, of throwing hundreds of $billions in subsidies at wind and solar was to slash emissions of carbon dioxide gas. Taxpayers and power consumers who are on the receiving end of the bill for all this environmental piety would, after almost 20 years, be entitled to ask just how much […]

Germany Squanders $Trillions on Subsidised Wind & Solar But CO2 Emissions Barely Budge

As we are continually reminded, CO2 emissions from fossil-fuelled power generators are all set to incinerate the planet. $Trillions in subsidies have been literally thrown to the sun and the wind, purportedly to kill coal, for good.

The disaster is largely down to distortions caused by […]

Weather Dependent Wind Power: Leaves Hurricane Victims Powerless

Oh, the irony. In one breath we’re told that the climate is changing so rapidly – although, these days, most climate alarmists don’t seem prepared to lay a bet on whether things are getting hotter or colder – that carpeting the world in wind turbines and solar panels – which cultists believe will solve the […]

The Nuclear Option: Atomic Solution to Australia’s Energy Crisis

In the blink of an eye, Australia’s media circus has finally woken up to the scale and scope of Australia’s self-inflicted power pricing and supply calamity. More ink has been spilt in the last few weeks on the subject than in the whole of the last decade. Wind power capital, South Australia’s blackouts and load […]
