In-a-Nutshell: New Research Shows Why Unreliable Wind & Solar Can Never Power Us

There’s a reason not to support heavily subsidised wind and solar: they simply don’t work as meaningful power sources; they never have and never will. A team of Irish and US-based researchers have produced a comprehensive piece of research explaining just why any dollar spent propping up chaotically intermittent wind and solar with taxpayer’s money, […]

Obsession With Unreliable Wind & Solar Becomes Western Civilisation’s Economic Suicide Pact

If economic suicide was the object, then our current obsession with chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar will surely deliver it. Rocketing power prices, power rationing and rolling blackouts are all part and parcel of any serious attempt to run on sunshine and breezes. Ask a Californian or South Australian: both suffer power […]

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 […]

Daylight Robbery: UK Wind Farms Paid £9.3million To Shut Down Their Turbines For A Single Day

In the history of commerce, there’s never been a financial scam that comes anywhere near rivalling subsidised wind power. In the past, sharp, entrepreneurial types have made plenty of easy money from ‘selling’ the London Bridge and the Eiffel Tower to unwitting dupes. But scamming fools with too good to be true offers is nothing […]

Renewable Wreckage: Texas Town’s Push for 100% Wind & Solar Sends Prices Into Orbit

The wind may be free and the sun, when it’s shining, doesn’t cost a penny. But wind and solar literally cost the earth. Put aside the wholesale slaughter of birds, bugs and bats; the destruction of idyllic landscapes and once bustling communities, with residents driven out of their homes by incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise […]

Brits Belted: Renewables Deliver Wholesale Energy Poverty – Poorest Families Left Power-less

RE zealots reckon that an uptick in the number of frozen grannies is a small price to pay for our ‘inevitable’ wind and solar powered future. As Brits brace for another frigid winter, spare a thought for the hundreds of thousands who – thanks to rocketing power prices driven by Britain’s renewables obsession – will […]

Neighbourhood Theft: Why Your Neighbour’s Solar Panels Are Costing You a Fortune

Electricity generation started off as an extension of science. These days, it’s all about vanity and virtue signalling. Not least those millions of shiny solar panels, which we’ve all helped subsidise – to allow our neighbours to bask in their own virtuous glow. At the theoretical level – when the sun is up and the […]

Blame Games: Public Being Played for Fools About Surging Power Prices by Wind & Solar Lobby

‘Support’ for subsidised wind and solar exists because Joe Public has absolutely no idea how power is generated or what it actually costs. In that respect, you’ve got to hand it to renewable energy rent seekers and their various propaganda wings: they’ve done a sterling job in taking a series of lies and myths and […]

Cost of Subsidised Wind & Solar Puts Power Out of Reach for America’s Working Poor

There will always be poverty, but rocketing power prices caused by subsidised wind and solar mean real punishment for the working poor. Yes, the poor will always be with us. And governments are meant to protect not punish them. However, that’s precisely the result of policies that favour meaningless power sources at the expense of […]

‘Green’ Vandalism: The Mounting Toll of Wind Industry’s Wave of Ecological Destruction

In 2018, it’s easier to find a deluded wind turbine hugger, than an old-fashioned tree hugger. Michael Shellenberger is regarded as one of America’s leading environmental advocates, but his avowed hatred of subsidised, intermittent and unreliable wind and solar puts him at odds with his contemporaries. To the extent that carbon dioxide gas concerns him, […]
