Destination Destruction: Wind and Solar ‘Transition’ Devouring Planet’s Dwindling Resources

Miners love wind and solar – demand for iron ore and coal has never looked rosier, and at the heart of every Electric Vehicle, solar panel and wind turbine there’ a bevy of rare minerals which are fast becoming rarer, thanks to our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future and the […]

Why Everything You’ve Heard About Solar Is Wrong: What the Media Don’t Want You to Know

The mainstream press would have you believe that we’re already being exclusively powered by wind and solar, and that neither of them have any downside, at all. Michael Shellenberger knows otherwise. Michael, with his properly reasoned support for nuclear power, draws plenty of heat from the pro-unreliables hacks in the MSM for his equally reasoned […]

Land Hunger Games: Biden’s Plan to Carpet America With Energy Diffuse Wind & Solar

It’s not just wind and solar power’s pathetic performance that makes the whole virtue signalling exercise so utterly pointless. It’s also the fact that, to generate anything other than a trivial amount of electricity, you need the best part of a continent’s land area to do it. To accommodate 2,000 MW of coal, gas or […]

Out of Sight: What to Do With Germany’s 1.35 Million Tonnes of Toxic Wind Turbine Blades?

The rush to an all wind and sun powered future has left Germans sensing the kind of regret that comes with youthful exuberance – something about acting in haste and repenting at leisure springs to mind. Having carpeted Deutschland with more than 30,000 of these things over the last 20 years, many of them are […]

New Green Deal Turns Sour: Counting Colossal Environmental Cost of Wind & Solar Obsession

  The true environmental and social cost of intermittent wind and solar is simply staggering. Millions of solar panels are already being dumped in landfill, and millions of nonrecyclable wind turbine blades are joining them; altogether creating a toxic legacy the generation who blindly championed so-called ‘green’ energy. A few posts back we carried a […]

How Green Is This?: Millions of Toxic Solar Panels & Wind Turbine Blades Destined for Landfill

The millions of solar panels being dumped in landfills are a veritable toxic cocktail of gallium arsenide, tellurium, silver, crystalline silicon, lead, cadmium and other heavy metals. Then there’s the landfill legacy being created by wind turbine blades, with the First World cynically using the Third World as its dumping ground: ‘Green’ Energy’s Poisonous Legacy: Millions of Toxic […]

Digging It: Mines, Minerals, and “Green” Energy: A Reality Check

It takes audacity to suggest that the wholesale environmental destruction wreaked by the wind and solar industries is all for the good of planet. Michael Moore’s Planet of the Humans managed to lift the lid on green hypocrisy, focusing on the raft of inconvenient truths behind the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time. Such as […]

Democrats’ New Wind & Solar Deal: Promises Wholesale Environmental Destruction

The faux environmentalist is easy to spot: they love industrial wind power and couldn’t care less about the environmental destruction it causes. Faced with the rampant slaughter of birds and bats, he or she initially denies the evidence and then pushes the moral equivalence button, claiming that more birds are killed by cats, cars and […]

Another All-Renewables Hoax Busted: Wind ‘Powered’ Hawaii Really Runs On Fossil Fuels

  RE zealots claim Hawaii is well on its way to getting 100% of its power from the wind and sun. In truth, it’s fossil fuels (bunker oil) that’s powering the Pacific islands, whereas wind and solar deliver a trifling 7%. Notwithstanding the hundreds of $millions in subsidies thrown at an ‘industry’ that remains more […]

Wind & Solar ‘Transition’: Destroying The Global Village In Order to ‘Save’ It

Climate cultists reckon the wholesale environmental destruction wreaked by the wind and solar industries is all for the good of planet. It’s an argument that holds all the logic of amputating an entire leg to prevent a septic toe from doing any further damage, when a dose of penicillin would do the trick. Michael Moore’s Planet […]
