Brutal Reality Check: Industrial Wind Power Ain’t ‘Green’ & It Certainly Ain’t ‘Clean’

Industrial wind power has landed in the “it seemed like a good idea, at the time” pile of monumental human failures. Producing electricity at the whims of mother nature means wind power has absolutely no commercial value, at all: strangely, power consumers want electricity as and when they need it, not just when the wind […]

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 […]

Lying To Survive: Desperate Wind Industry Claims That Wind Power’s Both Reliable & Cheap Busted (Again)

The wind industry was built on lies and runs on subsidies. Spin doctors, practised in the fine art of deception, have been gainfully employed for almost 30 years in an effort to turn night into day, in order to keep the subsidies coming and to prevent them from ever being cut. Politicians and a gullible […]

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 […]

Failed Experiment: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Have Never Worked & Never Will

Three decades, massive subsidies and yet intermittent wind power’s contribution to world energy needs remains little more than a rounding error. Electricity that can’t be delivered as and when it’s needed has no commercial value; massive subsidies are the only ‘value’ that attracts investors to wind and solar. Cut the subsidies and wind and solar […]

Reality Bites: Cheap Coal-Fired Power Killing Dreams of Australian Wind & Solar ‘Nirvana’

Wind and solar don’t compete with coal-fired power; never have, never will. You see, ‘competition’ involves starting from the same position, running the same race, over the same distance, without respite, laydown or let up. Calm weather and sunset don’t trouble coal-fired power plants (or gas or nuclear, for that matter). But the same can’t […]

Pointless Power: Why Wind Power Can Never Replace Coal, Gas, Nuclear or Hydro

Give a sentient being a few moments of uninterrupted consideration and they’ll soon work out why wind power can never work. Start with the weather. No one plans a weekend kite flying expedition a month in advance. And circumnavigating sailors know not to announce their arrival date at the time of departure, for much the […]

Mission Possible: Australia’s Renewable Energy Scam Destroying Reliable & Affordable Baseload Power

  Australia is in the process of destroying what was the world’s most reliable and affordable power supply. The destruction is all down to heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Meanwhile, our major Asian trading partners, China and Japan are chewing up Australian coal and uranium as fast as we can ship it […]

No Contest: Intermittent Subsidised Wind & Solar Most Expensive Electricity of All

Sunset and calm weather mean that wind and solar don’t compete with coal, gas or nuclear power, but that doesn’t stop pointless cost comparisons. Electricity generated when you don’t need it, is worthless – and wind or solar power that you can’t get, just when you need it most, can’t be bought at any price. […]

Renewables Rip-Off: Massive Subsidies Make Offshore Wind Power Most Expensive Of All

The true cost of chaotically intermittent wind power is staggering; the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. In Australia, the Labor backed construction union is howling about the fact that they can’t get an enormous offshore wind project up and running off the coast of Victoria. Throwing scorn at the Federal Coalition government about […]
