Apologise Now: West’s Attempt To Rely On Wind & Solar A Monumental Mistake

Anyone who still believes in an ‘inevitable’ transition to wind and solar, clearly hasn’t been paying attention. The same crowd tells us that ‘coal is dead’, ignoring the fact that coal demand continues to rise and the record prices paid for the black stuff is through the roof. The Russian advance on Ukraine has only […]

International Climate Changed: Putin’s War Destroys Great ‘Green’ Energy Reset

Vladimir Putin’s march across Ukraine has wrecked plans to slash man-made carbon oxide gas emissions with net-zero targets. Remember a month or so back, when the most pressing challenge was the apparent need to tame global weather using endless subsidies for billions more solar panels and millions more giant industrial wind turbines?

Old King Coal Trumps Wind & Solar: In An Energy Starved World the Black Stuff Still Rules

Wind and solar advocates keep carping that ‘coal is dead’, as if thermal power generation had gone the same way as the dodo and flared trousers. This wouldn’t be the first time an obituary has been published way too early. Mark Twain noted that reports of his death had been greatly exaggerated. So too, coal-fired […]

A month or so back, Germany’s green-infested government was talking up the end of coal and nuclear power plants; the last phase in its ‘inevitable’ transition to an all wind and sun-powered future, as the wind and sun cult would have it. Well. That was then, this is now. With the squeeze on Russian gas […]

Gas Blow Out: Vlad’s Invasion Exposes European Renewable Energy Policy Insanity

You know it’s a cult when innocents are being wiped out by shells and missiles and they’re fretting that we’ll lose our focus on the weather, as a result. As Russian tanks began shelling family homes across Ukraine, missiles struck home and air raid sirens screamed over Kyiv, John Kerry worried that Vlad’s westward expansion […]
