Renewable Energy’s Dirty Dozen: 12 Reasons Why Chaotically Intermittent & Heavily Subsidised Wind & Solar Power Make No Sense

It takes a special brand of delusion to believe that the world can run on sunshine and breezes.

Anyone still banging on about CO2 emissions in the electricity generation sector, ought to be banging on about nothing other than nuclear power. Nuclear power is the only, stand-alone generation source that can deliver reliable, affordable power without generating CO2 gas, in the process. The fact that politicians in this Country talk about anything but […]

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. To all but the most deluded, it’s fairly apparent that utterly weather dependent wind and solar will never […]

Stung: Minnesota Counts the Staggering Cost of Subsidised Wind Power

As 2017 draws to a close, with examples like Australia’s wind power capital, South Australia in mind, it takes a special brand of delusion to still believe that a country can run on sunshine and breezes.
