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.

Wind Industry Lies About Falling Costs Backfire: MPs Demand End to Subsidies for Wind Power

The moral of the story of ‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf’ isn’t don’t lie, it’s don’t tell the same lie twice. Renewables rent-seekers continue to stick with the same grab bag of lies, myths and furphies, despite mountains of evidence revealing their marketing pitch is just so much polished propaganda. South Australia (Australia’s so-called ‘wind […]

All at Sea – Forget Wind Industry Spin: Offshore Wind Costs are Not Falling, They’re Staggering

Over the last year or so, the Australian wind industry, its parasites and spruikers have pointed to a number of proposals to spear mega-windmills offshore and out in the briny blue, including one monstrous boondoggle pitched for the waters off of the Victorian coast.

Offshore Wind Power Just as Unreliable & Twice the Insane Cost of Onshore Wind Power

**** Australia’s Large-Scale RET is facing inevitable doom – and with it the wind industry – due to the fact that Australia’s commercial retailers decided to kill it off over 3 years ago; refusing, since then, to enter Power Purchase Agreements with wind power outfits. The result has been that commercial lenders have ceased lending […]
