Cost & Reliability Winners: Coal & Nuclear Just Keep On Keeping On

Pin satisfaction of your power demands to the weather, and expect the results to vary just like the .. ahem .. weather. One of the paradoxes of energy generation is that the most reliable sources are the cheapest, by far. Coal and nuclear power generation don’t need a second system like pumped hydro, mythical mega-batteries […]

Power Crisis Panic: Australia’s Energy Regulator Warns More Renewables Means More Blackouts

  ‘Panic’ and ‘delusion’ sum up the results of Australia’s self-inflicted renewable energy disaster. Panic at the threat posed by the occasional and chaotic delivery of wind and solar power to the grid; a threat already realised in Australia’s wind power capital, South Australia, which suffers the highest power prices in the world and is […]

Wind Industry Claims that ‘Coal is Dead’- Nothing But Lies, Myth & Propaganda

The wind industry was founded on myth, is built on lies and runs on a mix of subsidies and propaganda. And, it should never be forgotten that, the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time, was only made possible by our political betters. Armed with the belief (not unjustified) that you can fool most […]

Press-Ganged: How the Wind Industry Hijacked the Media to Peddle its Fake News

Myths, half-truths and downright lies are the stock in trade of the subsidy-soaked wind industry: to obtain its ‘social licence’, it’s needed plenty of useful idiots in the press. Gullible so-called ‘journalists’ ready, willing and able to parrot all the usual fantasies, such as: wind power is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time; that […]

True & Staggering Cost of Intermittent & Unreliable Wind Power – Unplugged

The total cost of attempting to incorporate intermittent, unreliable and chaotic wind power into a grid designed around stable, controllable, dispatchable power generation is utterly staggering. In those places attempting to run on sunshine and breezes, grid managers are forced to regularly intervene, compelling the owners of conventional fossil-fuelled generation plant (coal and gas) to […]

Another Wind Power FAIL: Big Winter Blow Leaves 75,000 UK Homes Powerless

It’s this simple, really: when your power supply depends wholly upon the weather, expect it to vary entirely at the whims of Mother Nature. Last year we brought you the story of what happened in Texas when Hurricane Harvey belted the Lone Star state: Last Man Standing: Nuclear Plants Power Texans During Deluge – Wind Turbines […]

Wind Industry Salvage Mission: Turnbull Government Set to Squander $10 billion on Snowy 2.0 Pumped Hydro Boondoggle

  The patrician and aloof Malcolm Turnbull continues as a parody of a PM. At a point when most political leaders would be reacting to the wholesale destruction of businesses and whole industries (along with tens of thousands of meaningful jobs) caused by spiralling power costs, Turnbull literally headed for the hills to pump his […]
