America’s Wind Industry Squeals as Republicans Slash Massive Wind Power Subsidies

The wind industry is a lot like Peter Pan – the perpetual infant, hard-wired to fight, kick and scream to avoid the stark reality of adulthood.

National Energy Guarantee Spells Doom for Wind Power: Mere Threat of NEG Smashes Wind Power Outfits’ Share Prices

The wind industry in Australia is doomed, and it knows it.

Armageddon Beckons: National Energy Guarantee Crushes Australia’s Wind Industry

America Set to Cut Subsidies to Wind Power & Prevent Grid Chaos

Blackouts Beckon as Cost of Britain’s Wind Powered Energy ‘Transition’ Rockets

Inevitably, the construction of proposed onshore […]
