Power Shock: Outrageous Cost of Subsidies Under Ontario’s ‘Green’ Energy Act Escalates

Like South Australia and Germany, Ontario launched headlong into wind power, as if actions no longer had consequences. In all cases, the results have been a disaster. The economic destruction that comes with rocketing power prices, has hollowed out Ontario’s manufacturing base. South Australia’s is now non-existent. And Germany struggles to provide reliable power to […]

Battered Power Consumers Cry Mercy as Climate Cult Ramps Up Renewables Rhetoric

Wind and solar power have never been about logic and reason, it’s a deranged form of ideology that drives their promoters. The zealots that promote that pathetic pair are screaming blue murder, as the political tide turns against them. The rhetoric gets ramped up, even as reality bites. Sydney billionaires living in $100 million Harbourside […]

Perpetually Pathetic Pair: Wind & Solar Require Subsidies From Now Until Kingdom Come

Wind and solar don’t compete with coal and gas; they never have, they never will. Here’s the real news: sunset is a thing; calm weather is a thing. These are not planetary or meteorological oddities. Babble about Australia being well on its way to an ‘orderly transition’ to an all renewables powered future is a little like St […]

Coal Wins Power Price ‘War’: Adding Storage Renders Cost of Wind & Solar Astronomical

The myth that wind and solar are meaningful power sources was busted long ago. Quite apparently incapable of operating on their own, what purports to be the future of electricity generation turns out to be a pair of complete duds. [Note to Ed: is this the part where we point out tricky facts such as […]

Enemy Within: Virtue Signalling Renewable Energy Zealots Determined to Destroy Australia’s Economic Prosperity

  Wind and solar is a purely political phenomenon: they have nothing to do with economics, instead, they’re all about virtue signalling. In the absence of massive and endless subsidies, this wouldn’t even be a topic. The idea that an economy can run on sunshine and breezes is, of course, patent nonsense. Debacles like South […]

Deutschland’s Delusion: Renewable Energy ‘Transition’ in Tatters – CO2 Targets Missed as Power Prices Spiral Out of Control

  Germany has a history of clinging to lost causes: its ‘inevitable’ transition to wind and solar is just the latest example. As Berlin was overrun by the Red Army in April 1945, Hitler and his loyal aides and commanders kidded themselves that the Reich might soon ride again. The Fuhrer and his newly wedded […]

Cost of Subsidised Wind & Solar Puts Power Out of Reach for America’s Working Poor

There will always be poverty, but rocketing power prices caused by subsidised wind and solar mean real punishment for the working poor. Yes, the poor will always be with us. And governments are meant to protect not punish them. However, that’s precisely the result of policies that favour meaningless power sources at the expense of […]
