Wind Industry Claims Scorched: Wind Power Costs Are Increasing Not Decreasing

The true cost of wind power is staggering and, despite wild claims to the contrary, is becoming more even expensive, not less so. Dr John Constable and Gordon Hughes have done what the mainstream media have never done and what renewable energy rent seekers would rather they didn’t: they’ve opened the books of account to […]

Want The World’s Most Expensive & Unreliable Electricity? Try Offshore Wind Power

The true cost of chaotically intermittent wind power is staggering; the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. The capital cost of spearing these things offshore is multiples greater than doing so and some dimwitted farmer’s back paddock. Recouping that capital cost means that offshore wind power is 25 times more expensive than coal, gas or nuclear. […]

Zero Sum Game: UK’s Economy Wrecking Zero CO2 Emissions Target Would Cost Brits £1.5 Trillion

If the UK’s suicidal renewable energy policy weren’t enough, British climate boffins are pushing for a zero carbon dioxide gas emissions target. There’s something comical about watching virtue signallers trying to outdo each other. For the true zealot, emissions targets are always too soft, and anything short of a 100% renewable energy target, is not […]

Run Aground: Intermittent Offshore Wind Power Costs 25 Times More Than Ever-Reliable Coal, Gas & Nuclear

Wind power is a pointless nonsense: 100% of its capacity must be backed up 100% of the time with a meaningful, conventional generation source: coal, gas, hydro or nuclear. That grouping never needs ‘backup’, ‘firming’, batteries or prayers to the Wind Gods and such like; they just work, whatever the weather, 24 x 365. Whereas, […]

Staggering Cost: Offshore Wind Power 25 Times More Expensive Than Coal, Gas & Nuclear

Wind power is utterly pointless on every level, having been abandoned centuries ago for pretty obvious reasons, starting with the weather. The oft heard retort from those fighting the prospect of wind turbines being speared into their backyards, is “why don’t they put them offshore?” These are the characters who are simply too gutless to […]

New York’s RE Debacle Deepens: Offshore Wind Power All-at-Sea Without Massive Subsidies

Where the cost of onshore wind power is staggering, the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. Of course, in either case, in the absence of massive and perpetual subsidies, there would never have been a single turbine constructed on land or at sea, ever, period. New York State’ Governor, Andrew Cuomo is just the […]

Subsidised Wind Power: An International Crime Against Common Sense

  Two necessary ingredients of the great wind power fraud are a gullible public and a troupe of pliant politicians. A decade from now – as these things either self-destruct, collapse or quietly rust into oblivion – the MPs that enabled the greatest economic and environmental fraud in history, will not be thanked. Nor will […]
