Hopelessly Helpless: German Wind Power Fails 93.3% Of The Time & Collapses in Minutes

  When the challenge is thrown at wind power proponents about its hopeless intermittency, like a drug addict, the answer is always “more”. More of the same, more turbines, more panels, more subsidies, more transmission network capacity, more non-existent mega batteries, well, just more. Germany is held up as the shining example of what our […]

Deutschland’s Death Spiral: Germany Can’t Control Runaway Cost of ‘Green’ Energy ‘Transition’

When energy policy is driven by ideology, rather than engineering, physics and economics, expect mixed results. Unmitigated disasters, like Australia’s wind and solar capital, South Australia are just the most obvious examples of what happens when lunatics take charge of the asylum. Germany is right up there, too. With rocketing power prices and a grid […]

Merkel’s Muddle: Coal Keeps Powering On as Germany’s Renewable Energy Transition Implodes

  Germany’s ‘transition’ to wind and solar is a full-scale debacle: rocketing power prices and an unstable grid, the only tangible ‘results’. Anyone still talking about an ‘inevitable transition’ to nature’s wonder fuels, only needs to be reminded about the power pricing and supply calamity that is South Australia. As another example of what follows […]

Germany’s Renewable Energy Disaster – Part 2: Wind & Solar Deemed ‘Ecological Disasters’

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle. German power prices have rocketed; blackouts and load shedding are the norm; and its idyllic countryside has been turned into an industrial wasteland, with its forests, no exception (see above). Hundreds of billions of euros have been squandered […]
