Full-Steam Ahead: China & Japan Snub Intermittent Wind & Solar to Build Hundreds of New-Age Coal-Fired Plants

One hackneyed myth propounded by RE zealots is that China is well on its way to an all wind and sun powered future. The reality differs. Instead of worshipping nature’s wonder fuels, China is flat out building hundreds of high-efficiency, low-emissions coal-fired plant, in a concerted effort to drag itself out of the grinding agrarian […]

Wind Industry Myths Busted: Twenty-Five Reasons Why Intermittent Wind Power Fails

Wind power is a monumental failure: not just costly and chaotic, the claim that it amounts to a meaningful power source is pure nonsense. Notorious examples like South Australia, prove the point: this is the state that set and met its own 50% renewable energy target, became renowned as the wind power capital of Australia, […]

Hype-power: UK’s Woeful Wind Power Performance, More Huff Than Puff

  The biggest lie of our time is that the wind can power an entire economy. Every country that’s ever tried has failed – abysmally. The UK is no exception. No one plans a kite flying excursion weeks in advance, so why how did wind power propagandists manage to sell the fiction that Mother Nature […]

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

Wind ‘powered’ […]

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 […]

Germany’s Renewable Energy Disaster – Part 1: Wind & Solar Deemed ‘Technological Failures’

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle. German power prices have rocketed; blackouts and load shedding are the norm; and idyllic rural communities are now industrial wastelands (see above). Hundreds of billions of euros have been squandered on subsidies to wind and solar, […]

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 […]
