Living in Australia? Then You’re Being Powered By Coal – So Deal With It!

If you’re reading this post in Australia, you’re doing so thanks to coal-fired power. Don’t like it? Then get off the internet. And, while you’re at it, turn off your lights, your air-conditioner, let your smart phone run flat and, just for laughs, start tackling busy intersections without the benefit of traffic lights. Wind ‘powered’ […]

Wind & Solar Built On Endless Lies, Broken Promises & Massive Subsidies

The greatest con job in history started with the idea that you can run an economy on sunshine and breezes. Sequentially, inevitably, every myth and lie put forward by renewable energy rent seekers and their shrinking band of acolytes gets busted and exposed. Lines like: wind power is cheaper than coal (it isn’t); the wind […]

Australia’s RE Debacle Means It’s Time to Drain the Subsidised Wind & Solar Swamp

Once upon a time, in a land far away – a place blessed with coal, gas and uranium – electricity flowed all day and all night, and it was practically given away. Then came subsidised wind and solar; mandates; targets; penalties and feed in tariffs. After less than a dozen years, what was an energy […]

RE Fails During Heatwave: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Californians Sweltering in the Dark

  Plug your energy needs into the sun and wind and expect plenty of disappointment, especially when it counts. Renewable energy zealots always talk a ‘big game’ – perpetually raving about how this wind farm or that sea of solar panels will ‘power’ hundreds of thousands of homes, for free, forever. Then the sun sets […]

Wind & Solar’s Mega-Cost Delivers Mega-Failure: RE Supplying Less than 1% During Peak Demand

If you live in Australia, and you’re reading this post, you’re doing so thanks to coal. If you don’t like it, shut your device down now. The electricity that’s powering it, your home, the internet, etc, etc isn’t coming from sunshine and breezes. It’s coming from a coal-fired power plant. So, deal with it! Over […]

Chaotic Wind & Solar Power: A Pair of Guaranteed Grid Wreckers

There’s no place on the planet where wind and solar power perform anything like the overblown rhetoric that surrounds them. [Note to Ed: has it got something to do with the weather and the Earth’s rotation?] As wind and solar power capacity increases it becomes harder for RE zealots to hide the cruel and unassailable […]

State of Delusion: Push to Kill-Off Arizona’s Nuclear Plant & Go 50% Wind & Solar

  Believing that wind and solar can power your economy means sacrificing our good friends, logic and reason. It also demands ignorance of the most basic of facts: eg, sunset and calm weather. The inevitable consequence of those daily occurrences on wind and solar power generation ought to be apparent to all but those suffering […]
