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 […]

Shredded: After 30 Years Wind & Solar ‘Industries’ Still Can’t Compete With Nuclear, Coal or Gas

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. And there was no lack of assistance in the form of […]

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 […]

On The Level: Why Unreliable Wind & Solar Increase Power Prices

The relationship between rocketing power prices and chaotically intermittent wind and solar is crystal clear. Let’s call it Germany, Denmark and South Australia, where wind and solar obsessions have driven power prices into orbit. While RE zealots continue to chant the mantra that wind and solar are practically free, and getting cheaper all the time, […]

Pricing Vanity: Counting the Crushing Costs of Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar

The claim that renewables are cheaper than coal, gas and nuclear is simply nonsense. There’s a reason why wind and solar obsessed Germany, Denmark and South Australia fight it out for the honour of paying the world’s highest power prices. Where conventional generators can be counted on to deliver 24 x 7, wind and solar […]

Paltry Pair: After $Trillions in Subsidies & 30 Years, Wind & Solar’s Contribution Remains Risible

Believe the hype, and you’d think that we’re already being powered almost exclusively by sunshine and breezes. Well, the facts say otherwise. Despite squandering hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies, forcing power retailers to adhere to mandated targets etc, etc, over the last 30 years – the combined contribution of wind and solar remains […]
