Unbearable Burden: Mounting Cost of Subsidised Wind & Solar Crushing Poorest Power Consumers

It’s an unassailable fact: add heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid and power prices skyrocket. South Australians, Danes and Germans fight for line honours over which of their proletariat suffers the world’s highest power prices. As to the Australian states hooked up to the Eastern Grid, Dr Michael Crawford’s simple […]

Rigged & Rotten: How Power Market Rules Were Bent to Benefit Intermittent Wind & Solar

Electricity that is not available as and when consumers need it has no natural commercial value. An ICU patient on life support isn’t interested in whether the weather is going to keep her alive. For that reason, chaotically delivered wind and solar just don’t add up. The only thing that adds up are massive (and […]

‘Green’ Magic: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ The Greatest Con Job in History

Sunset and calm weather mean that wind and solar will never be meaningful power sources. Talk about ‘storage’ overcoming their chaotic intermittency, is just that: talk. The sum total of the world’s grid scale storage capacity for electricity is risible. The biggest single battery in the world, sits in a sheep paddock in South Australia’s […]

Own Goal: Michael Moore Documentary Tackles Dark Side of Wind & Solar

Renewable energy zealots must hit the panic button when someone from their own team calls the wind and solar ‘industries’ rotten to the core. The hard green-left and so-called “progressives” take as an article of faith that those among them will worship wind and solar until kingdom come. So, when one of their own starts […]

Subsidy Farming: Wind Power Could Never Make a Profit Without Massive Subsidies

Squandering other people’s money is what the wind and solar industries do best. Let’s face it, they wouldn’t exist without massive and endless subsidies. The chaotic power they occasionally produce has no commercial value and as Warren Buffett put it “We get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That’s the […]

‘Green’ Insanity: Why Chaotic Wind & Solar Are No Answer to World’s Woes

Suddenly, the Australian press are treating wind power with the contempt it deserves, due to an about-face by former Greens leader, Bob Brown. True it is you won’t hear Dr Bob explaining why heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind power is a meaningless power source. Bob won’t be talking about the toxic lakes of heavy […]

End Game: Subsidy Wind Down Heralds Collapse in Wind & Solar Investment

Wind and solar power are always and everywhere the product of massive (and seemingly) endless subsidies. Except, there is an end. There always is. Australia’s Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target expires in December 2030. The 33,000 GWh annual target was meant to be reached with a surge in wind and large-scale solar capacity by 2020, but […]
