Crazytown: German Professor’s Solution to Wind & Solar’s Hopeless Intermittency: More Wind & Solar!

Our good friends, logic and reason have taken a pounding from wind and solar obsessed renewable energy rent seekers and zealots over the years. For the best part of 20 years, they’ve been trying to convince us that wind and solar are reliable, affordable and as safe as houses. If you’re looking for a singular […]

German Resistance: Furious Rural Residents Bring Wind Farm Construction to Dead Halt

Much to the horror of wind power promoters, all eyes are on Germany at the minute, with its wind industry in freefall, turbine manufacturers in ruin and rural residents in revolt. In 2019 less than 200 turbines were erected onshore [a figure of 325 is given below which apparently includes offshore turbines] and a trifling […]

Blown Away: Mounting Community Opposition Brings Wind Industry to Grinding Halt

The wind industry once held a kind of ‘social licence’. Now that ‘licence’ has been revoked, with rural communities in uproar. In Germany, new wind farm construction has ground to a halt this year – and across the USA the same pattern is emerging. Local governments, legislators and conservation groups have united to pull the […]

Wind Industry Crisis Spreads: German & Australian Environmentalists Turn Against Pointless & Destructive Wind Power

The inevitable backlash against wind power started in Germany and it’s spreading, fast. The fact that chaotically intermittent wind power can’t be delivered as and when power consumers need it means the wanton destruction of pristine wilderness, bucolic landscapes, rural communities, and millions of birds and bats (including plenty of species on the brink of […]

Kaput!!: German Resistance Killing Off Wind Power Projects – Wind Turbine Construction at a Standstill

Not long ago, Germany led the charge on wind power, now its wind industry faces Armageddon. Subsidies have been cut. Market rules against intermittent sources have been tightened. Germany’s rural residents are on the brink of revolt, fed up with their bucolic landscapes being trashed and being forced to live with practically incessant turbine generated […]

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 […]

Deutschland’s Delusion: Renewable Energy ‘Transition’ in Tatters – CO2 Targets Missed as Power Prices Spiral Out of Control

  Germany has a history of clinging to lost causes: its ‘inevitable’ transition to wind and solar is just the latest example. As Berlin was overrun by the Red Army in April 1945, Hitler and his loyal aides and commanders kidded themselves that the Reich might soon ride again. The Fuhrer and his newly wedded […]
