Those that kid themselves otherwise, fall into roughly 2 camps: dreamy, eco-zealots, happy to ignore everything the real world throws at them (especially facts antithetical […]

Dog-Ate-My-Homework ‘Defence’: Wind Industry Blames Poor ‘Performance’ on the Weather

As Australia’s Energy Minister’s gathered for a panicked attempt to keep the subsidised renewable energy scam rolling for just that bit longer, the Wind Gods conspired to deflate their pumped-up rhetoric about Australia’s ‘inevitable transition’ to nature’s wonder fuels: sunshine and breezes. What’s depicted above, courtesy of Aneroid Energy, is the output from every wind […]
