Why America’s Green Subsidies Are Making China’s Wind Turbine & Solar Panel Makers Rich

China is profiting nicely from the West’s maniacal obsession with subsidised wind and solar – it dominates the global market for solar panels, with plenty of unwilling assistance from its captive Uighur ethnic minority; and has picked up a solid share of the wind turbine market, thanks to cheap and reliable nuclear and coal-fired power. […]

Deliberately Trashed: Why Biden’s Subsidised Wind & Solar Push Is Destroying America

Once the engineers were banished and the bureaucrats took charge, the fate of reliable and affordable energy supplies was sealed. Trashing coal-fired power plants, demonising nuclear power and squandering untold $billions on hopelessly unreliable wind and solar would have never happened if the engineers were left alone to run the show. The results are difficult […]

Forever Subsidised: America’s Wind & Solar ‘Industries’ Biggest Fear Is Real Competition

Profiteering wind and solar rent-seekers have only one real fear in the electricity market: actual competition. Claims from renewable energy profiteers that wind and solar are truly competitive with nuclear, coal or gas evaporate the instant policymakers start talking about removing subsidies to wind and solar. Back in 1983 the American Wind Industry Association claimed […]

Biden’s Rapacious ‘Green’ Dream: Green New Deal Devouring World’s Rare Earth Minerals

Clean’, ‘green’ wind and solar were meant to save the planet, but the obsession with the unreliables will only expedite its consumption. Every solar panel and every wind turbine are an aggregation of minerals, requiring mountains of real energy in their creation. Many of those minerals are scarce, generally referred to as “rare earths”. Thanks […]

Massive Subsidies For Wind & Solar ‘Industries’: The Never, Never, Never-Ending Story

Back in 1983 the American Wind Industry Association claimed that solar and wind would be “competitive and self-supporting on a national level by the end of the decade if assisted by tax credits and augmented by federally sponsored R&D”. That was over 37 years ago. And there was no lack of assistance in the form […]
