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 […]

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 […]

Renewables Rejected: Germans Embrace Nuclear Power Like Their Lives Depend On It

Apparently, Germans are not looking forward to a winter sitting freezing in the dark when the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. One ‘plan’ is to encourage energy-starved Germans to bunch up in commonly heated exhibition halls to prevent them from freezing to death when temperatures plummet. The (hopeful) German power consumer is, quite rightly, unamused. […]

Cold Consequence: Europe’s Wind & Solar Obsession Promises Very Bitter Winter Ahead

Germans are paying the price for their Green-Left government’s maniacal fixation on heavily subsidised and hopelessly intermittent wind and solar. Already suffering Europe’s highest power prices, with prices still on the ascendant, German bureaucrats have been reduced to rationing energy of all descriptions at the micro level, in a way not seen since its postwar […]

Reality Bites: Germany’s Wind & Solar Transition Declared Abject Failure

The German government’s cultish obsession with wind and solar is a mixture of wishful thinking and mass delusion. Both have collided with reality as Vlad Putin continues to put the squeeze on Europe’s gas supplies – gas which has been used to run the banks of fast-start-up gas turbines essential to backing up mammoth, sudden […]

Subsidised Renewables Revolt: Entrenched Energy Poverty Source of Next Revolution

Power prices driven through the roof by subsidised and unreliable wind and solar means electricity is out of reach for thousands of struggling households. Reliable and affordable electricity is at the heart of modern, socially stable societies. Deprive the masses of something that has been taken for granted for generations, and get set for serious […]

Unable to Pay Their Rocketing Power Bills, Germans Told to ‘Huddle Up’ Next Winter

Germany’s obsession with unreliable wind and solar has households and businesses paying the Europe’s highest power prices, when electricity isn’t being rationed, that is. That more than 300,000 German households can no longer afford electricity, comes as no surprise. That hundreds of thousands of people in Europe’s richest economy are forced to heat their homes […]

Skyrocketing Power Prices & Power Rationing: Germany First To Hit The Wind & Solar Wall

Germans are in the midst of a power pricing and supply disaster thanks to the world’s most idiotic energy policy, centred on an unhinged obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Already suffering Europe’s highest power prices, consumers are bracing for even worse to come. Vladimir Putin’s Ukrainian adventure has merely brought things to a […]

Nuclear Power: Perfect Cure For Wind & Solar Driven Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s power market is in a diabolical mess: massive subsidies to intermittent wind and solar have undermined reliable and affordable power supplies, sending Germany and Denmark’s power prices through the roof (see above). Since Vladimir Putin’s adventure in Ukraine, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per kWh. […]

Apologise Now: West’s Attempt To Rely On Wind & Solar A Monumental Mistake

Anyone who still believes in an ‘inevitable’ transition to wind and solar, clearly hasn’t been paying attention. The same crowd tells us that ‘coal is dead’, ignoring the fact that coal demand continues to rise and the record prices paid for the black stuff is through the roof. The Russian advance on Ukraine has only […]
