Coal Hard Fact: Fossil Fuel The Central Foundation For Modern Human Civilisation

The miserable misanthropes and neo-Marxists reckon that fossil fuels are an evil to be driven back to the depths from whence they came. Except, of course, when it comes to their own selfish energy needs. Spend a week gathering dung and twigs to cook meals over a smoky fire in an unlit hut, and you’ll […]

Inconvenient Truths: Sunset & Calm Weather Mean Wind & Solar Can Never Power Us

No country has ever powered itself entirely on wind and solar; no country ever will. And the reason is very simple: sunset and calm weather. Pressed on the inherent intermittency of wind and solar, the acolyte starts muttering about “storage” as if it were a thing. It isn’t and, for reasons of physics and economics, […]

Energy Means Life: Fossil Fuel Use Continues to Surge And The World’s All The Better For It

Grinding poverty is synonymous with the absence of reliable and affordable fossil fuel-based energy systems. Whether it’s oil for transport, gas for heating and cooking or coal for electricity, any country with a living standard worth having has access to at least two or more of the foregoing. Take a peek at a night-time satellite […]

Nothing Sustainable About Wind & Solar Power Generation – Except Massive Government Subsidies

After 30 years of operation, enterprises that would collapse overnight without massive subsidies ain’t “industries” – which is what wind and large-scale solar outfits spuriously claim to be. And when RE rent seekers talk about their “sustainable” business model, that’s just code for ensuring that those massive subsidies outlast religion. Following that theme, Robert Bradley […]

Dead End: Only Crazed Fanatics Promote Wind & Solar as a Serious Power Solution

  When faced with reality, facts and logic the renewable energy zealot denies the existence of all three, starts ranting about the end of the world and calling their antagonists “deniers”, ignoring the obvious irony. If your worldview hinges entirely on un-testable belief and unsupported dogma, you’re probably in a cult. And, if your buddies start […]

Fossil Fuelled Salvation: Costly & Unreliable Wind & Solar No Answer To COVID-19 Shut Down

Barely weeks ago, they were gluing themselves to roads, crying ‘doom’ if we didn’t ditch fossil fuels altogether. Oh, the irony. Now, with human beings facing a real and present threat in the form of a novel coronavirus, it’s fossil fuels that offer mankind its only serious hope. Whether it’s the medicines, medical equipment, PPE […]

Fossil Fuelled Future: How On Earth Do They Expect Wind & Sunbeams To Power Us?

In their sillier moments, renewable energy zealots pontificate about the end of fossil fuels, to be inevitably replaced by wind and solar (albeit, these days with the addition of $trillions worth of mythical mega-batteries). No country has ever powered itself on wind and solar alone; no country ever will. Instead, modern economies will continue to […]

Fact Check: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Will Never Replace Fossil Fuels

The wind and solar ‘industries’ were built on lies and run on subsidies. As to the former, for more than 20 years a phalanx of propagandists has worked overtime to literally turn night into day. Lines like the ‘wind is always blowing somewhere’, ‘sunset’s not a problem’, this ‘wind farm will power XXX hundred thousand […]
