Crazytown: German Professor’s Solution to Wind & Solar’s Hopeless Intermittency: More Wind & Solar!

Our good friends, logic and reason have taken a pounding from wind and solar obsessed renewable energy rent seekers and zealots over the years. For the best part of 20 years, they’ve been trying to convince us that wind and solar are reliable, affordable and as safe as houses. If you’re looking for a singular […]

False Dawn: On The Hollow Promise Of An All Wind & Solar Powered Future

Back in 1983 the American Wind Industry Association claimed that solar and wind would be “competitive and self-supporting on a national level by the end of the decade if assisted by tax credits and augmented by federally sponsored R&D”. That was 36 years ago. There has been no lack of assistance in the form of […]

If Wind & Solar Are So Cheap, Why Are Germans Paying World’s Highest Power Prices?

Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie: Renewable Energy Transition: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Germans Suffering the World’s Highest Power Prices And, with a looming capacity crunch, Germans will be lucky to have power at all, at any […]

Cuomo’s Curse: New York Governor’s $47,000,000,000 Wind & Solar Boondoggle

A decade from now, New Yorkers will rue the day that Andrew Cuomo determined to run their state on chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Like everywhere else that’s attempted to run on sunshine and breezes, New York’s power prices are bound to rocket out of control and its enviable grid reliability will soon become a […]

Priceless: Scots Forced to Pay Wind Farms £650,000,000 To NOT Generate Power

Once upon a time, electricity had a value defined by demand, not by the weather. Power that can’t be delivered as and when it’s needed has absolutely no commercial value. Which brings us to weather-dependent wind power; generated in chaotic, random intervals, it’s a case of either feast or famine. But businesses and households don’t […]

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 […]
