Busting The Big Lie: Vesta’s CEO Admits Wind Power Ain’t Cheap & Never Will Be

As big lies go, the claim that wind power is cheap was a whopper that was bound to come a cropper. What wasn’t expected is that one of the world’s biggest profiteers from the great wind power fraud, Danish turbine maker Vestas would be the one to lift the lid. Now they tell us: Wind […]

Hard Truths: COP Climate Cult Can’t Deal With Europe’s Monumental Wind & Solar Failure

The truth is hard and sometimes bitter, especially when it destroys everything you’ve believed in, which is why Europe’s grand wind and solar fail has upset the climate cultists who keep screaming that the world is on the brink of imminent self-immolation. The panacea, they say, is more of the very thing that’s destroyed reliable […]

Small Modular Reaction: Europe’s Wind & Solar Disaster Paves Way For New Nuclear Age

Europe’s energy disaster proves, beyond doubt, that wind and solar are an abject failure, leaving the way clear for nuclear power and any other power generation source that can dish it up, on demand. With numerous operators seeking or obtaining licences to build Small Modular Reactors, and numerous countries signing up to have them, SMRs […]

Money For Nothing: Europe Squandered $Trillions On Weather-Dependent Part Time Power

Despite Europe spending €1.2 Trillion on large-scale wind and solar generation, the amount of power being actually delivered in return is risible. Which is precisely what you’d expect from power generation sources which can only deliver anything like their nameplate capacity when the sun is up, in a cloudless sky, and the wind is blowing […]

Europe’s Wind & Solar Disaster Heralds Nuclear Power’s New Beginning

Like planting trees, the best time to build nuclear power plants was 20 years ago, the next best time is right now. Before climate cultists started demonising coal-fired power, the world was awash in reliable and affordable electricity. Now, however, the crowd that berates us about human-generated carbon dioxide gas are hellbent on destroying coal […]

No Brainer: Safe & Affordable Nuclear Power Provides Perfect Pathway to Clean Energy Future

The renewable energy debacle in Germany means that it won’t axe its nuclear plants and is likely to start building more of them, like their French neighbours. The French, of course, set the benchmark for generating clean, safe and reliable nuclear power; they’ve been doing so for nearly 60 years and still get over 75% […]

Fired-Up: Global Demand For Coal Defies Wind & Sun Cult’s Predictions of Doom

World energy markets keep defying the wind and solar cult’s prediction that coal’s days are over. The meme has it that ‘coal is dead’, but in reality it hasn’t suffered so much as a flesh wound. Indeed, thermal coal prices are off the charts, with record demand driving record prices: Australian thermal coal prices hit $US$400 […]

Power Prices: With Wind & Solar Obsession – The Only Way Is Up and Up and Up

Rocketing power prices is one inevitable consequence of the so-called ‘inevitable’ wind and solar transition. Germans know it, so do Californians, South Australians and Danes. Brits are learning fast, too. Of course, the propaganda units that run cover for renewable energy rent seekers pretend otherwise. Francis Menton wades through their dross to reveal what Europe’s […]

Vlad’s Victory: Europe Losing Energy War Thanks to Wind & Solar Obsession

Many a defeat is the product of a grand delusion; Europe’s obsession with wind and solar is just another example. Beaten by Vlad Putin’s ability to restrict the gas it needs to run fast-start-up gas peaking plants (essential to cover rapid and unpredictable collapses in wind output and rapid and wholly predictable collapses in solar […]

Unreliable Wind & Solar Leave Power-Starved Europeans Vulnerable During Big Freeze

The northern hemisphere turns on bitter winters – getting wind turbines and solar panels to turn on in the midst of one, is another matter. A cohort of Americans left powerless during the winter storm that struck in February 2021, has already had a taste of their wind and solar ‘powered’ future, and didn’t take kindly […]
