RE-Treat: Europe’s Repeated Wind & Solar Failures Force Renewable Energy Reversal

Germany and Britain are so heavily dependent on wind and solar, that gloomy, windless weather now presents an existential threat. The Germans have even coined a word for it: ‘dunkelflaute’. If mass blackouts during freezing winter weather weren’t a threat to millions of lives, it would almost be comical. What’s occurred is the perfect example […]

Ever Reliable: Nuclear & Coal-Fired Power Provide Germany’s Only Energy Salvation

Seems like only yesterday that Germany’s grand wind and solar transition was the talk of the town. Dubbed the “Energiewende”, it was meant to spell an inevitable end to nuclear and coal-fired power, which would soon be replaced by nothing other than forests of wind turbines and seas of solar panels. Well, that was what […]

Climate Changed: Calm, Gloomy Weather Killing Europe’s Grand Wind & Solar ‘Transition’

In the mother of all ironies, Europe’s wind and sun cult are complaining about uncooperative weather. The Germans have even coined a word for it: ‘dunkelflaute’ – meaning a period of gloomy, windless weather. Which, in reality, means little or nothing by way of output from their more than 30,000 wind turbines and millions of […]

Real Energy Rules: Germans Shred Wind Farm To Expand Critical Coal Supplies

Germans apparently aren’t keen on freezing in the dark, so they’ve started trashing wind turbines to expand the coal supplies that prevent that kind of misery. There are more than 30,000 wind turbines spread across Deutschland, with thousands more off the German coast. Notwithstanding brave talk about killing off their coal-fired power plants, made redundant […]

Wind & Sun Can’t Deliver: So Power-Starved Germans Demand Nuclear Plants Remain Online

Mass civil unrest is odds-on in power starved Germany and Britain this winter, thanks to the so-called wind and solar ‘transition’. With thousands likely to freeze to death, the collective sense of humour will soon evaporate, along with any remaining faith in the ability of wind and solar to deliver power, as and when it’s […]

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 […]

Power Prices: With Wind & Solar Obsession – The Only Way Is Up and Up and Up

Rocketing power prices is one inevitable consequence of the so-called ‘inevitable’ wind and solar transition. Germans know it, so do Californians, South Australians and Danes. Brits are learning fast, too. Of course, the propaganda units that run cover for renewable energy rent seekers pretend otherwise. Francis Menton wades through their dross to reveal what Europe’s […]

Unreliable Wind & Solar Leave Power-Starved Europeans Vulnerable During Big Freeze

The northern hemisphere turns on bitter winters – getting wind turbines and solar panels to turn on in the midst of one, is another matter. A cohort of Americans left powerless during the winter storm that struck in February 2021, has already had a taste of their wind and solar ‘powered’ future, and didn’t take kindly […]

Renewables Regret: Power-Starved Europeans Rue Their Governments’ Wind & Solar Obsession

Eating cold baked beans in the dark might not be everyone’s idea of fun, but power-starved Europeans are getting used to that kind of indignity. German households and businesses are already suffering Europe’s highest power prices; since Putin’s Ukrainian adventure began, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per […]

Bitter Reality: Unreliable Renewables Will See Germans Freezing In The Dark This Winter

Electricity is one of those things that is only fully appreciated when a hopeful user is deprived of it. Across Europe, the cultlike fixation on wind and solar has provided precisely the environment in which households and businesses are coming to sense just how important having power as and when they need it, really is.
