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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Renewables Driven Demand for Rare Earths Leaves America Vulnerable to CCP Extortion

Every wind turbine, every all EV and every solar panel critically depends upon a myriad of so-called ‘rare earths’. The minerals in question have become ‘rare’, of late, as a consequence of the Western world’s insatiable appetite for ‘feelgood’ electricity generated by sunshine and breezes, occasionally stored in giant lithium batteries, as well as the […]

Let’s Get Serious: Unreliable Wind & Solar No Way to Power Any Serious Economic Power

The wind and solar debacles playing out in the US, UK and Germany have finally brought reality to bear and exposed the renewable energy ideologues as outright frauds. And, from our perspective, about time, too. The acolytes chanting about our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future are like the overly optimistic […]

Subsidy Siphons: Intermittent Wind & Solar Devouring $Billions of American Taxpayers’ Dollars

Identifying the full value of subsidies to wind and solar, has been like a game of hide and seek. Whether it’s renewable energy certificates, production tax credits, preferential access to the power grid, over-the-market government guaranteed contracts, or the hidden costs of the cash penalties attached to government mandates and targets, the wind and solar […]

Biden’s Blackout Nation: ‘Green’ New Deal Promises More Time Freezing or Boiling in the Dark

Sitting freezing or boiling in the dark provides a moment to consider where one’s electricity comes from. Californians, South Australian and now Texans have all enjoyed the experience, one way or another. The common thread, of course, is an obsession with sunshine-dependent solar and/or weather-dependent wind power. The belief that we’re just a heartbeat (and […]

Renewables Roulette: How Wind & Solar Generators Game the Power Market at Your Expense

Enron is synonymous with fake financials and wholesale fraud, but its gaming of the Californian power market set the tone for every crony capitalist wind and solar generator, who’s raped and pillaged, ever since. The story was laid out in the documentary The Smartest Guys In The Room. https://stopthesethings.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/enron-extract.mp4   Back then, Enron’s traders would […]

Renewables Rethink: Americans Ready to Reject Wind & Solar After Big Freeze Blackouts

All of a sudden, everyone’s talking about wind and solar, and the chatter ain’t positive. Solar panels carpeted in inches of snow and ice; wind turbines frozen solid; and breathless, frigid weather led to total collapses in wind and solar output across central USA. Millions of notionally wind and solar ‘powered’ Texans copped the worst […]
