Bad Medicine: Why Hydrogen Gas Ain’t No Cure For Intermittent Wind & Solar

There’s a whiff of desperation surrounding wind and solar advocates touting hydrogen gas as the next ‘green’ energy Nirvana. Renewable energy rent seekers have seized on the concept of producing hydrogen gas using wind and solar as a way of converting useless, unpredictable and unreliable electricity into something that can be used as and when […]

Energy Magic: Wind & Solar ‘Industries’ Pin Their Future on Great Hydrogen Hoax

RE rent seekers are touting hydrogen gas produced with unpredictable and unreliable wind and solar power as the next ‘green’ energy Nirvana. If producing industrial volumes of hydrogen using electricity were even vaguely economic, then the obvious way of doing so would be to use coal-fired power; the cheapest and most reliable power source, of […]

Path to Recovery: Scrapping Subsidies to Never-Reliable Wind & Solar Key to Economic Revival

There’s a reason that South Australians suffer the world’s highest retail power prices; and that’s because it’s the world’s wind and solar capital. It is an economic backwater, with Australia’s highest rate of unemployment, which can only worsen after the Draconian COVID-19 lockdowns imposed on commercial and social life destroyed thousands of jobs, many of […]

Snow Job: Giant Pumped Hydro Scheme Set to Destroy Australia’s Favourite National Park

Future generations will wonder why this one destroyed the planet, while claiming to save it, using completely useless industrial wind turbines and solar panels. Whether it’s dumping hundreds of thousands of toxic solar panels and windmill blades into landfill, or the toxic lakes in China where the rare earths are processed that make them, the […]

Power Deficit: Wind Power’s Hopeless Intermittency Leaves Germans Scrambling For Reliable Generation

What seemed like a good idea at the time, has turned into an unmitigated disaster. Germany threw more at wind and solar than any other country on earth; its government has done everything in its power to make it work. It’s still at it. Except there’s a couple of things that it can never control: […]

Flat Battery: Busting the Myth of Grid Scale Storage of Wind & Solar Power

STT will keep smashing the line about giant batteries overcoming the chaotic delivery of wind and solar, while RE zealots keep pushing it. Over recent posts we focused on the insane cost and limited capacity of giant lithium-ion batteries of the kind peddled by reefer-smoking Californian carpetbagger, Elon Musk (see above and our post here).
