Long Way to Run: Warren Buffet Rejects All-Renewable Future With $10 Billion Bet on Oil & Gas

Australian voters just shredded the notion that the proletariat is wedded to heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Labor’s Bill Shorten sought to ram a 50% Renewable Energy Target down voter’s throats; a concept which the vast majority of them duly rejected. Sure, there were plenty of other issues that sank the Green/Labor […]

Reality Bites: Cheap Coal-Fired Power Killing Dreams of Australian Wind & Solar ‘Nirvana’

Wind and solar don’t compete with coal-fired power; never have, never will. You see, ‘competition’ involves starting from the same position, running the same race, over the same distance, without respite, laydown or let up. Calm weather and sunset don’t trouble coal-fired power plants (or gas or nuclear, for that matter). But the same can’t […]

Climate Con-Job: You Know It’s a Ponzi Scheme When Pure Fantasy Has a Colossal Price

The wind industry is just the latest and largest in a long line of great Ponzi schemes, like the South-Sea Bubble and Dutch tulip mania. In the wind industry, the scam is all about pitching bogus projected returns (based on overblown wind “forecasts”) (see our posts here and here and here and here); claiming that wind turbines will run for 25 years, without the need […]

End of Days: Wind Industry Faces Armageddon in Ontario as New Government Scraps Hundreds of Planned Projects

Stray dogs disappear when you stop feeding them: wind power outfits evaporate as soon as governments slash the mandates, targets and subsidies that nourish them. Back in June, the Progressive Conservatives snatched power from an arrogant and out-of-touch Liberal government, that was headed up by the malevolent Kathleen Wynne. One of their first moves was […]

D-Day For Australia’s Energy Debacle: End of Bipartisan Support Means End for Wind & Solar

As desperate as they are silly, Australia’s renewable energy rent-seekers and the zealots that do their bidding have called in an airstrike on their own position. Making nonsensical claims that adding even more heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar will lead to substantial reductions in retail power prices, has exposed these people for […]

Risible Renewables: 30 Years and $Trillions in Subsidies – Wind & Solar’s Total Output Less than 1% of World Energy Demand

A decade from now, as grids collapse and businesses and households are driven into penury, because they can no longer afford their rocketing power bills, the current generation will have plenty of time to lament (albeit, sitting freezing or boiling in the dark). South Australians, with a deluded and dangerous Labor Premier, utterly obsessed with […]

Fear & Loathing Downunder: Australian PM’s Reliable Power Play Kills Dozens of Wind Power Projects Stone Dead

Gradually, painfully, the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers are coming to the realisation that Malcolm Turnbull’s National Energy Guarantee means the end of the greatest subsidy-soaked rort of all time. Among renewables rent-seekers, a few deluded souls are still kidding themselves that it will all blow over (so to speak), while, at the other […]
