Daily Disaster: Blackouts Only Reward For California’s Wind & Solar Nightmare

If insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results, then California’s a clear candidate for the asylum. Over the last 20 years, its maniacal wind and solar obsession has cost Californians dearly: they suffer America’s highest power prices and, when the mercury soars, are lucky to get any power, at all. Energy […]

Dreamer’s Disease: No Way On Earth That Wind & Solar Can Provide 100% of Our Energy Needs

In their wilder moments, the wind and solar acolyte proclaims that an all-wind and sun-powered future is upon us.  Never mind sunset; never mind dead calm weather; and never mind the fact that the idea that giant lithium-ion batteries economically storing wind and solar power at grid-scale is pure hokum – for the dreamer, the […]

Renewables Rip-off: ‘Free’ Offshore Wind Power Costs Six Times the Average Cost of Power in USA

Americans are fast learning that the cost of wind power is staggering, and the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. Joe Biden and his Squad are eager to plant thousands of these things up and down the Atlantic coast, claiming that offshore wind power is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time. It’s a […]

Biden’s Big ‘Green’ Dirty Secret: America’s Solar Industry Depends on Slave Labour

Joe Biden and his Squad are eager to carpet America wall-to-wall with solar panels built by thousands of Uighur slaves under the control of the CCP. The reason that China is able to dominate the market for solar panels isn’t about superior manufacturing techniques or Confucian ideals. No, it’s about very cheap wages. So cheap […]

‘Green’ Monster: Biden’s Wind Power Plan Destroys Offshore Fisheries & Threatens Endangered Whales

Joe Biden and his Squad of wind worshipping lunatics are hellbent on destroying the livelihoods of America’s Atlantic fishermen, and much more besides. Endangered Right Whales are in the gun, as well. [Note to Ed: remember when lefties used to exhort us to Save the Whales?] Big spending Biden wants to squander untold $billions of […]

Massive Subsidies For Wind & Solar ‘Industries’: The Never, Never, Never-Ending Story

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 over 37 years ago. And there was no lack of assistance in the form […]

Counting the Staggering Cost of Biden’s Offshore Wind Power Plans: Power Costs Set to Double

With Joe Biden and the Squad in the White House, American power consumers should strap themselves in for a very wild ride. Under his plans to spear or anchor 10,000 or more giant industrial wind turbines into the seafloor off America’s Atlantic coast, it’s not just the marine environment and fishermen who will suffer the […]

Californian & Texan Renewable Energy Blackouts Force Americans to Back Base-Load Power

Base-load power means the stuff generated by coal, gas, nuclear and, where nature permits, hydro. Anyone claiming that wind or solar fit within that mix has never seen a sunset or experienced a burst of dead calm weather. And there’s the rub. Mass blackouts and power rationing in notionally wind and solar powered California during […]

Last Man Standing: China Defies Biden’s Climate Crusade Against Coal-Fired Power

The CCP won’t let America’s climate industrial complex interfere with its economic ambitions, key to which is its burgeoning supply of reliable and affordable coal-fired power. Whereas Australia’s suicidal renewable energy obsession has destroyed this country’s competitive advantage, the only interest China has in wind turbines and solar panels is making them and flogging them […]

Green New Deal = Pointless Posturing: Joe Biden’s Trillion Dollar Wind & Solar Boondoggle

The only obvious point to Biden’s ‘Green’ New Deal is lining the pockets of crony capitalists and keeping lobbying rent seekers happy. Hundreds of $billions more are set to be squandered on utterly pointless wind and solar. A point which ought to be pretty obvious to Americans, after millions experienced the mass blackouts suffered across […]
