Another All-Renewables Hoax Busted: Wind ‘Powered’ Hawaii Really Runs On Fossil Fuels

  RE zealots claim Hawaii is well on its way to getting 100% of its power from the wind and sun. In truth, it’s fossil fuels (bunker oil) that’s powering the Pacific islands, whereas wind and solar deliver a trifling 7%. Notwithstanding the hundreds of $millions in subsidies thrown at an ‘industry’ that remains more […]

Cancel Culture: Michael Shellenberger Censored For Exposing Climate Industrial Complex

The media’s obsession with cataclysmic climate change is matched only by their fixation on unreliable wind and solar power as the only solution. That narrative has been tortured for more than 20 years, now. But even among their own ilk, the “only more subsidies for wind turbines and solar panels will save us” narrative has […]

Michael Shellenberger: Sorry, But I Cried Wolf on Climate Change

If climate change is a problem, then wind turbines and solar panels aren’t a solution: heavily subsidised and unreliable wind and solar are an economic and environmental disaster. When climate alarmists managed to hijack energy (and with it economic) policy it was a case of lunatics taking over the asylum. In every breath they exhort […]

Wind & Solar ‘Transition’: Destroying The Global Village In Order to ‘Save’ It

Climate cultists reckon the wholesale environmental destruction wreaked by the wind and solar industries is all for the good of planet. It’s an argument that holds all the logic of amputating an entire leg to prevent a septic toe from doing any further damage, when a dose of penicillin would do the trick. Michael Moore’s Planet […]

Zero Return: Intermittent Wind & Solar Devour More Energy Than They Can Ever Return

Sunset and calm weather have been with us since the dawn of time; wind and solar power have existed for barely a generation, and only as a result of massive subsidies. The notion that modern economies can operate around the vagaries of the weather and time of day is, of course, patent nonsense. The factory […]

Keepin’ It Real: Intermittent Wind & Solar No Substitute for Coal, Gas & Nuclear Power

There might be a substitute to coal, gas and nuclear power out there somewhere. But it isn’t chaotically intermittent wind and solar, whether with or without mythical mega-batteries. Michael Moore’s Planet of the Humans has done a couple of things. First, it’s sent the crony capitalists profiteering from subsidised renewable energy into a tailspin and […]

Hide & Seek: Media Keep Burying Mike Moore’s Planet of the Humans & Bloggers Keep Digging It Up

Mike Moore’s Planet of the Humans has incensed renewable energy rent seekers, climate cultists and the mainstream media, alike. Its narrative – that subsidised renewable energy is just a playground for crony capitalists and the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time – doesn’t sit well with the tribe who would have us believe […]

History Repeats: Taxpayers Fork Out Another $Billion on Another Giant Solar White Elephant

  When Crescent Dunes, the world’s biggest solar-thermal power plant went bankrupt, US taxpayers were left to pick up the tab, with their liability running into hundreds of $millions. South Australians (victims of their government’s obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar) can count themselves lucky that they didn’t end up with a carbon copy […]

Green-Left Fury: Don’t Mention Mike Moore’s Planet of the Humans – Or Else …

Like a meteor out of the blue, Michael Moore’s Planet of the Humans caught the climate cult napping, smug in the belief that they had a complete grip on the world’s energy policy, now and forever. The film – produced by Moore and made by Jeff Gibbs – has been uploaded to YouTube to allow […]

Green-Left Furious at Michael Moore For Exposing Renewable Energy As Complete Fraud

There is a particular delight in watching the hard-green-left tear each other apart, which is precisely the result of Michael Moore’s Planet of the Humans. The film – produced by Moore and made by Jeff Gibbs – has been uploaded to YouTube to allow all and sundry to get the message: renewable energy is the […]
