The Great Wind Delusion: Why Wind Power Is Worse Than Useless

The notion that a nation can run on sunshine and breezes is worse than delusional, it’s flat out dangerous. Once resilient and reliable electricity generation and delivery systems designed around the certitude of coal, gas and hydro have been replaced by pure and utter, weather driven chaos. Rapid and reactionary load shedding (“demand management”) and […]

Crazytown: German Professor’s Solution to Wind & Solar’s Hopeless Intermittency: More Wind & Solar!

Our good friends, logic and reason have taken a pounding from wind and solar obsessed renewable energy rent seekers and zealots over the years. For the best part of 20 years, they’ve been trying to convince us that wind and solar are reliable, affordable and as safe as houses. If you’re looking for a singular […]

Fact Check: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Will Never Replace Fossil Fuels

The wind and solar ‘industries’ were built on lies and run on subsidies. As to the former, for more than 20 years a phalanx of propagandists has worked overtime to literally turn night into day. Lines like the ‘wind is always blowing somewhere’, ‘sunset’s not a problem’, this ‘wind farm will power XXX hundred thousand […]

Failed Experiment: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Have Never Worked & Never Will

Three decades, massive subsidies and yet intermittent wind power’s contribution to world energy needs remains little more than a rounding error. Electricity that can’t be delivered as and when it’s needed has no commercial value; massive subsidies are the only ‘value’ that attracts investors to wind and solar. Cut the subsidies and wind and solar […]

Renewable Energy Regrets: Intermittent Wind & Solar Delivers Grid Chaos for Californians

The only thing that’s inevitable about the so-called ‘transition’ to wind and solar is rocketing prices and grid chaos. The inability to deliver electricity as and when it’s needed, mean wind and solar have no commercial value – apart from the massive subsidies they attract. Being commercially worthless is one thing, but dumping volumes of […]

Permanent Part-Time Power: Wind Power Rush Leaves Texans Scrambling for Reliable Electricity

Being a weather-dependent enterprise, no one thinks of promising their kids a kite flying holiday, ahead of time. So just how modern, Western economies ever thought they’d power themselves with occasional breezes is a mystery. The inherent and chaotic intermittency that’s part and parcel of wind power is only compensated by the ability of dispatchable […]

The Power Hunger Games: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Can Never Power the Planet

The prospect of a 100% renewable energy future is 100% pure, unadulterated myth. Placard waving teens fretting about the weather in 30 years’ time might demand it, but logic, physics, meteorology and economics will forever conspire against an all wind and sun powered future. And the idea that a transition to wind and solar is […]
