Industrialised Landscapes & Battered Communities Drive German Backlash Against Big Wind

Germany’s wind power obsession has turned picture postcard landscapes into alien, industrial war zones – of the kind dreamt up by futurist HG Wells. In the beginning, carpetbaggers, rent seekers and their eco-zealot, shock troops sold the ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future as an ecological idyll. Except, the reality has fallen […]

Regrets: Fritz Vahrenholt – German RE Pioneer Demands End to Chaotic Wind Power Push

  If the tech savvy Germans can’t make wind and solar power work, no one can. The Germans love cobbling together endless, guttural syllables to create nouns longer than the Autobahn. ‘Energiewende’ roughly translates as ‘energy transition’, which Germans have taken to mean a new path with energy. Germans were told that instead of coal […]

Fool’s Paradise: Germany’s Renewable Policy an Economic & Environmental Disaster

  Germany has long been held up as the poster child for wind and solar power, but the picture is now more tragedy, than triumph.

Germany’s Wind & Solar Obsession Pushes Power Grid to Brink of Total Collapse

South Australia has become […]

Hateful Eight: 8 Solid Reasons Why Subsidised Wind Power is Both Pointless & Harmful to Health & Wealth

If wind power was a horse, its owner would have shot it long ago. Instead, cheered on by ideological zealots and endlessly pumped up with performance enhancing subsidies it continues to lumber on regardless. Impossibly chaotic in its delivery, it never starts the race on time and continually fails to finish, even when it manages […]

Germany’s Anti-Wind Power FDP Free Democrats Crush Greens in North Rhine Westphalia

Germans are a relatively cool tempered bunch, keen for consensus and to avoid serious civil confrontation. Which goes some way to explain why Germany was overrun by these things; with thousands of them speared all across their farms and forests. However, Germans quite obviously have their limits of tolerance. During the winter just gone, with […]

Greens Founder Calls Germany’s Renewables Policy: “an Economic, Social and Ecological Disaster”

When people turn on wind power, it’s a one-way proposition: they never, ever worship these things again. And when the convert was among those who first championed the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time, they don’t just quietly fall out of love, they tend to become the loudest critics of all; a bit […]
