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% […]

No Brainer: Any Serious World Power Is Absolutely Serious About Nuclear Power

China and Russia are serious world powers, which is why they are absolutely serious about nuclear power. No country ever deprived itself of reliable and affordable energy and went on to become a world player. Which is why the CCP and Vlad Putin can’t believe their luck with hitherto Western powers doing just that. True […]

Unreliable Wind & Solar Show Everything Depends On Reliable & Affordable Power Supplies

2021 was the year when the inherent unreliability of wind and solar revealed how everything depends upon reliable and affordable power supplies. The wind and solar ‘industries’ talk a big game; and in their wilder moments even claim to be capable of replacing conventional coal, gas and nuclear generators, altogether. Europe’s months-long wind drought in […]

Wind Power ‘Droughts’ Mean Nuclear Power Key To Neutralising Net-Zero Madness

Europe’s persistent and ongoing wind drought spells the end for never-reliable wind power and the renaissance of ever-reliable nuclear. As a consequence of the Big Calm and a total collapse in wind power output across Western Europe and the UK, the Brits have now enlisted Rolls Royce to build a fleet of small modular reactors. […]

Party’s Over: Unreliable Wind & Solar Ditched In Favour of Ever-Reliable Nuclear & Gas

Once the belles of the ball, wind and solar are being treated like cheap tarts: now it’s nuclear and gas that are attracting all the attention. And it’s all thanks to the massive wind drought – aka the Big Calm – that struck Western Europe in September, and lasted for weeks, sending gas and power […]

Post-Renewables Reality: Nuclear Power Generation Easy Solution For Energy Starved World

Europe’s great wind drought has focused attention on the unassailable fact that wind power is an utterly meaningless power source. The demand for electricity is, always and everywhere, a ‘here and now’ kind of thing. Households and businesses couldn’t care less if there’s a roaring gale and plenty of wind power at 2 in the […]

COP That Wind & Solar: Nuclear Power Drives French Renewables Resistance

The French already get more than 70% of their power from nuclear plants. Now, thanks to a massive month-long wind power output collapse, that proportion is destined to increase. Following Europe’s ‘disastrous’ wind drought – that saw wind power output plummet throughout most of September and into October, and early November – the need for […]

Europe’s Epic Renewable Energy Fail Makes Transition to Nuclear Power Truly Inevitable

The fastest way to get people thinking about electricity, is to deprive them of it. Europe’s power pricing and supply calamity has sharpened thinking and provided a golden opportunity for engineers and free-market economists to wrest back control from ideologues and renewable energy rent-seekers. Until the Big Calm hit Western Europe last month – causing […]

Priceless: Nuclear Powered French Pay Half What Wind & Solar ‘Powered’ Germans Pay for Power

If wind and solar power are so cheap, then why is it that Germany now suffers Europe’s highest power prices? And equally wind power obsessed, Denmark is right behind it? On the one hand, the wind and solar cult point to Germany as the shining example of our inevitable transition to an all wind and […]
