Persistently Pathetic: Routine Total Collapses Mean Wind Power Remains A Total Joke

No matter how many wind turbines get added to the grid, when calm weather sets in, their combined output amounts to a doughnut. Europe has more on and offshore wind turbines per square kilometre than any other continent. And yet it continues to suffer month’s long wind droughts, such as the one that started in […]

The Great Green Lie: Wind & Solar Aren’t Saving The Planet, They’re Wrecking It

The idea that unreliable wind and solar can save the planet is one of the greatest lies, ever told. In touting their purported environmental credentials, the crony capitalists, rent-seekers and fawning advocates never take into account any of the associated costs. It’s all sunshine and suitably stiff breezes, as far as the wind and sun […]

The Weather: Why Wind Power Will Always Be Hopelessly Intermittent & Unreliable

Here’s the news: wind power critically depends upon the wind, without which there ain’t no wind power. Simples. Beyond seven days meteorologists are little more than glorified soothsayers when it comes to predicting the weather. How many times do we see revised forecasts given the day before, when only a week before that, the maximum […]

Guilty: Intermittent Wind & Solar Responsible For Global Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s ongoing wind drought (and corresponding wind power output collapse) is a wake-up call for anyone vaguely concerned about energy supplies. Starting in September last year and running for weeks on end, total collapses in wind power output across Western Europe and the UK, forced a wholesale rethink of the maniacal reliance upon wind and […]
