Trawlermen Furious: Rhode Island’s Fisherman Tell Wind Developer to Stick Its Turbines Where It Hurts

Wind developers ran aground off the New Jersey coast, with fishermen literally telling them to F%*#k Off: Deepwater in Deep Trouble: Fishermen Tell Off-Shore Wind Farm Developers to F@*#K Off Now it’s the trawlermen who work off Rhode Island who’ve told a wind developer to stick its wind turbines where the sun don’t shine.

Run Aground: Intermittent Offshore Wind Power Costs 25 Times More Than Ever-Reliable Coal, Gas & Nuclear

Wind power is a pointless nonsense: 100% of its capacity must be backed up 100% of the time with a meaningful, conventional generation source: coal, gas, hydro or nuclear. That grouping never needs ‘backup’, ‘firming’, batteries or prayers to the Wind Gods and such like; they just work, whatever the weather, 24 x 365. Whereas, […]

Staggering Cost: Offshore Wind Power 25 Times More Expensive Than Coal, Gas & Nuclear

Wind power is utterly pointless on every level, having been abandoned centuries ago for pretty obvious reasons, starting with the weather. The oft heard retort from those fighting the prospect of wind turbines being speared into their backyards, is “why don’t they put them offshore?” These are the characters who are simply too gutless to […]

New York’s RE Debacle Deepens: Offshore Wind Power All-at-Sea Without Massive Subsidies

Where the cost of onshore wind power is staggering, the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. Of course, in either case, in the absence of massive and perpetual subsidies, there would never have been a single turbine constructed on land or at sea, ever, period. New York State’ Governor, Andrew Cuomo is just the […]

Wind Energy: Part-Time Power – Full-Time Failure: Brand New Turbines Falling Apart

Wind power isn’t a serious energy source, it’s a serious joke. In the absence of massive subsidies, the wind industry wouldn’t exist. Battling to deliver part-time power, it’s been a full-time failure. Self-combusting, throwing 10 tonne blades to the four winds and dropping their 300 tonne hulks earthwards is just what these things do. But, […]

World’s ‘Biggest’ Wind Turbine – Wind Industry’s Final Solution or Last Hurrah?

As power consumers wake up to the great wind power fraud, the wind industry has developed a siege mentality. Trotting out hackneyed propaganda about the ‘inevitable transition’, being ‘competitive’ with coal and RE powering on to world domination is starting to lose traction. And that’s the trouble with myths: the mob soon works you out. […]

Cuomo’s Curse: Wind Power Obsession Leaves New Yorkers with Rocketing Power Bills

If wind power really is cheap and getting cheaper all the time, why is it that every State or Nation ‘powered’ by the weather is suffering power prices magnitudes higher than those that continue merrily chugging away on coal, gas or nuclear power? South Australia, Denmark and Germany suffer the highest power prices in the […]
