No Serious Contest: Never-Reliable Wind Power Simply Can’t Beat Ever-Reliable Coal-Fired Power

Any country serious about its energy future soon gets serious about coal-fired power. China, India, Indonesia, Japan and Vietnam are in the process of building 600 new coal-fired power plants, between them, adding to a fleet of hundreds of plants which have been operating for generations. And there’s a reason: coal-fired power is reliable and […]

Permanent No-Hopers: Never-Reliable Wind & Solar No Match For On-Tap Coal-Fired Power

Virtue signalling anti-coal/pro-wind and solar groups are picking a fight they can only lose. NWO/NGOs have launched rabid attacks on any company with the temerity to back coalmining and/or coal-fired power. The activists’ line goes that any company that isn’t telling its shareholders that coal and coal-fired power plants are already dead, is lying to […]

No Contest: Never Reliable Wind & Solar Can’t Compete with Ever Reliable Coal-Fired Power

  Renewables acolytes have been massaging the numbers for years, in an attempt to show that wind and solar power are the cheapest of all. The standard bag of tricks includes ignoring the capital cost of having every single (unreliable) megawatt of wind or solar constantly backed up by another (reliable) megawatt of coal, gas, […]

Why Wind & Solar Are Pointless: ‘Renewables Will Power Us’ Myth, Smashed Again

  It takes a special brand of delusion to believe that we’re a heartbeat away from an all wind and sun powered future. But that’s the premise advanced by wind and sun worshippers and the rent seekers that profit from the greatest subsidy scam in human history. Putting aside their chaotic intermittency, the staggering amount […]

Worse Than Worthless: Intermittent Wind & Solar Cost A Fortune, But Have No True Value

Electricity that can’t be delivered as and when power consumers need it, has no commercial value. Sure, the wind might be ‘free’ and the Sun may never send an invoice to solar panel owners, but wind and solar power are readily the most expensive way of generating chaotically intermittent electricity, known to man. And the […]

Simply Staggering: What Weather Dependent Wind & Solar Really Costs

Assume, for the moment, the wind always blew and the sun always shone, then wind and solar power just might make sense. That’s why those talking about an ‘all wind and sun powered future’ sound like they’re coming from another planet. Renewables rent seekers keep telling us how cheap wind and solar are, compared to […]
