Dreamer’s Disease: No Way On Earth That Wind & Solar Can Provide 100% of Our Energy Needs

In their wilder moments, the wind and solar acolyte proclaims that an all-wind and sun-powered future is upon us.  Never mind sunset; never mind dead calm weather; and never mind the fact that the idea that giant lithium-ion batteries economically storing wind and solar power at grid-scale is pure hokum – for the dreamer, the […]

Endless Resuscitation Required: Wind & Solar Simply Can’t Survive Without Massive Subsidies

As soon as the subsidies for wind and solar dry up, so does the investment in generating capacity, proving the point that neither wind nor solar can survive for very long without guaranteed, government-mandated support; whether in the form of Production Tax Credits, Renewable Energy Certificates or penalties and fines laid on retailers if they […]

Renewables Rip-off: ‘Free’ Offshore Wind Power Costs Six Times the Average Cost of Power in USA

Americans are fast learning that the cost of wind power is staggering, and the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. Joe Biden and his Squad are eager to plant thousands of these things up and down the Atlantic coast, claiming that offshore wind power is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time. It’s a […]

Biden’s Big ‘Green’ Dirty Secret: America’s Solar Industry Depends on Slave Labour

Joe Biden and his Squad are eager to carpet America wall-to-wall with solar panels built by thousands of Uighur slaves under the control of the CCP. The reason that China is able to dominate the market for solar panels isn’t about superior manufacturing techniques or Confucian ideals. No, it’s about very cheap wages. So cheap […]

Counting the Staggering Cost of Biden’s Offshore Wind Power Plans: Power Costs Set to Double

With Joe Biden and the Squad in the White House, American power consumers should strap themselves in for a very wild ride. Under his plans to spear or anchor 10,000 or more giant industrial wind turbines into the seafloor off America’s Atlantic coast, it’s not just the marine environment and fishermen who will suffer the […]

Land Hunger Games: Biden’s Plan to Carpet America With Energy Diffuse Wind & Solar

It’s not just wind and solar power’s pathetic performance that makes the whole virtue signalling exercise so utterly pointless. It’s also the fact that, to generate anything other than a trivial amount of electricity, you need the best part of a continent’s land area to do it. To accommodate 2,000 MW of coal, gas or […]

Last Man Standing: China Defies Biden’s Climate Crusade Against Coal-Fired Power

The CCP won’t let America’s climate industrial complex interfere with its economic ambitions, key to which is its burgeoning supply of reliable and affordable coal-fired power. Whereas Australia’s suicidal renewable energy obsession has destroyed this country’s competitive advantage, the only interest China has in wind turbines and solar panels is making them and flogging them […]

Green New Deal = Pointless Posturing: Joe Biden’s Trillion Dollar Wind & Solar Boondoggle

The only obvious point to Biden’s ‘Green’ New Deal is lining the pockets of crony capitalists and keeping lobbying rent seekers happy. Hundreds of $billions more are set to be squandered on utterly pointless wind and solar. A point which ought to be pretty obvious to Americans, after millions experienced the mass blackouts suffered across […]

Why Subsidising Intermittent Wind & Solar Drives Power Prices Through the Roof

Perplexed as to why your power bill just doubled? Then you’ll be pleased to know the answer is simple: massively subsidised wind and solar. Statisticians get excited when they can prove causation instead of mere correlation, which often depends upon the number of observations of a particular event of interest. With dozens of countries and […]

Unaffordable At Any Price: Why Biden’s ‘Green’ New Deal Will Bankrupt America

Joe Biden and his Squad are trying to convince the American people that their ‘Green’ New Deal will deliver an economic Nirvana, for all and sundry. Which begs the question: if every place in the world that’s adopted subsidised wind and solar ends up suffering rocketing power prices and an unreliable supply, why would the […]
