Renewable Energy Transition: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Germans Suffering the World’s Highest Power Prices

The only things ‘inevitable’ about ‘transitioning’ to wind and solar are rocketing power prices, load shedding and mass blackouts. Ask a German or South Australian. Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie, as does Denmark and South Australia, […]

Are Friends Electric: Push for Industrial Electrification Exposes Costly Futility of Intermittent Wind & Solar

In their sillier moments, wind and solar advocates claim that we’ll all soon be driving electric vehicles, lovingly recharged with sunshine and breezes. In Australia, those seemingly virtuous souls with EVs are really being propelled by coal, because 85% of the electricity passing through its Eastern grid comes from coal-fired plants. It’s an irony, to […]

Industrial Devolution: Renewables Obsession Leaves German Industry Crushed By Rocketing Power Prices

No country went harder and faster with its renewable obsession than Germany. The rocketing power prices that inevitably followed are crushing its once thriving industries, including motor manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz. The idea that a critical input cost to manufacturing can be tripled without affecting profitability and employment is, as any student of that dismal […]

Australia’s Energy Crisis: Subsidised Wind & Solar Obsession Sending Power Prices Into Orbit

Add heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid and rocketing prices are guaranteed. The Danes know it, the Germans know it and South Australians became the butt of international jokes, because of it. The relationship couldn’t be clearer: see above the pertinent little graphic from Dr Michael Crawford, which says it […]

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 […]

Texan Turmoil: True & Staggering Cost of Wind & Solar Kept Hidden From Power Consumers

The hidden cost of attempting to rely upon sunshine and breezes is truly staggering, ask a German, Dane or South Australian about the power prices they suffer. They’re the world’s highest, by the way. And all three of them compete for bragging rights about which of them has the greatest proportion of renewables in the […]

Renewable Wreckage: Texas Town’s Push for 100% Wind & Solar Sends Prices Into Orbit

The wind may be free and the sun, when it’s shining, doesn’t cost a penny. But wind and solar literally cost the earth. Put aside the wholesale slaughter of birds, bugs and bats; the destruction of idyllic landscapes and once bustling communities, with residents driven out of their homes by incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise […]
