Democrats Would Take California’s Blackout Chaos Nationwide With New ‘Green’ Deal

An obsession with intermittent wind and solar is delivering rolling Summer blackouts to Californians, once again. That same obsession – in the form of the Democrat’s New ‘Green’ Deal – promises to deliver much more of the same across the USA, should Sleepy Joe Biden, AOC and her Squad get the keys to the White […]

New Soviet Era: Australian Businesses Paid to Shut Down When Wind & Solar Output Drops

To call Australia’s energy debacle a ‘crisis’ is mastery in understatement: its obsession with wind and solar means its economy now operates around the vagaries of mother nature. The availability of sunshine and suitably beneficial breezes dictates when and where electricity gets delivered to power consumers. The cause of Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity […]

‘Green’ Energy Rip-Off: Consumers Paying Double For Intermittent Wind & Solar Power

Sunset and calm weather mean wind and solar can and will never replace conventional power generators. By ‘conventional’ we mean coal, gas, nuclear and, where geography and geology permit, stored hydro and geothermal power. Show a picture like the one above – the entire output of every wind turbine connected to Australia’s Eastern Grid (with […]

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 […]

Power Drain: Risible Reliance on Intermittent Wind & Solar Means Summer Blackouts Beckon

  Subsidised into existence, intermittent wind and solar now pose existential threats to Australia’s once reliable power supply, this summer and beyond. No industrialised country has ever run itself on sunshine and breezes; no country serious about maintaining first world living standards, ever will. So just how Australia’s energy boffins still cling to the notion […]
