Reality Check: Last Chance to Learn From Europe’s Renewable Energy Disaster

Europe is paying the price for its suicidal obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar. The power pricing and supply calamity that’s hit Germany and others was as perfectly predictable as it was perfectly avoidable. Power prices are out of control and weather-driven power rationing is the new normal. The Germans once had heroic plans […]

International Climate Changed: Putin’s War Destroys Great ‘Green’ Energy Reset

Vladimir Putin’s march across Ukraine has wrecked plans to slash man-made carbon oxide gas emissions with net-zero targets. Remember a month or so back, when the most pressing challenge was the apparent need to tame global weather using endless subsidies for billions more solar panels and millions more giant industrial wind turbines? When fossil fuels […]

Reality Check: Europe’s ‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar Transition Unwinds In Ukraine

  That the West has become weak and silly, is best exemplified by its concerted efforts to wreck hitherto reliable and affordable energy supplies. While policy wonks will argue forever about the precise casus belli for Putin’s attack on Ukraine, it is unarguable that Europe’s insatiable demand for Russian oil and gas has allowed Putin […]

Gas Blow Out: Vlad’s Invasion Exposes European Renewable Energy Policy Insanity

As Russian tanks began shelling family homes across Ukraine, missiles struck home and air raid sirens screamed over Kyiv, John Kerry worried that Vlad’s westward expansion […]

Self-Inflicted Energy Insecurity: Vlad Impales Wind & Solar Obsessed Europe

Like a giant boa constrictor, oil and gas-rich Vlad Putin has a chokehold on wind and solar-obsessed Europe. ‘Green’ policies designed to wipe out reliable and affordable coal and nuclear power plants – on the pretext that they would be replaced by the chaotic output from wind turbines and solar panels – have long been […]
