Nuclear Renaissance Heralds Immortal Age of Safe, Reliable & Affordable Power

Nuclear power isn’t expensive: the nuclear-powered French pay around half what wind and solar-powered Danes and Germans do (see above). And the French don’t suffer the power rationing and blackouts their German neighbours do, when the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. Indeed, it’s nuclear power from France and coal-fired power from Poland that […]

Europe’s Self-inflicted Renewable Energy Disaster Drives Nuclear Power Renaissance

The race to secure reliable and affordable power is on and nuclear power has already crossed the finish line. 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 […]

Blown Away: Counting The Cost of Europe’s Self-Made Renewable Energy Crisis

Europe’s insatiable appetite for unreliable wind and solar has left Europeans hungry for any kind of power, provided it’s available on demand. The French have rebooted investment in their 56 existing nuclear plants and are planning a further 14 to add to their enviable fleet. The Brits and the Germans are stoking up their ‘ageing’ […]

Atomic Attraction: Wind Power’s Abject Failure Forces Europe to Embrace Nuclear Power

To call Europe’s rapid embrace of nuclear power ‘passionate’ is not overstatement. Much to the horror of wind and solar acolytes, a growing number of EU members are ready to declare nuclear power is not only clean and green, but wholly sustainable. Wind and solar-obsessed Germans and Brits are watching power prices go into orbit […]

Europe’s Self-Inflicted Energy Catastrophe Driven By Hopelessly Unreliable Wind & Solar

Anyone looking for a taste of what the ‘transition’ to wind and solar might look like, need look no further than Europe. The best (worst) examples, Germany and the UK are in the middle of self-inflicted energy debacles, with many of their neighbours not far behind. Mass wind droughts – that lasted months at the […]

2021’s Renewables Debacle In Review: Fickle Wind & Sun Face Bitter Accusations

Just when the ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future was supposed to be in the bag, thoroughly calm weather dashed all hopes. $Trillions in subsidies have been thrown at wind and solar power outfits, with no end to the largess in sight. All the while, the rent seekers and propagandists have been […]

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 […]

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 […]
