All Time High: Wind & Solar Obsession Triples Power Costs to German Industry & Domestic Prices Highest in Europe

In another ‘proof is in the pudding moment’, wind and solar obsessed Germans are now paying record prices for electricity. German households suffer the highest prices in Europe. And, over the last 20 years, the prices paid by German industry have almost tripled. Faced with the choice between going broke or going elsewhere, Germany’s world-renowned […]

Wrecking Ball: Australia’s Fixation With Subsidised Renewables Guarantees Economic Disaster

If the object was wrecking every last manufacturing, mineral processing and mining job, then Australia’s renewable energy policy has delivered on time and under budget. Starting in 2001 with John Howard’s Renewable Energy Target (massively expanded by Kevin Rudd in 2009), the subsidies being squandered on intermittent wind and solar are now in the order […]

Technology Tease: On The Cruel Promise of a Renewables/Hydrogen Fuelled Future

  The wind and solar industries were built on lies, run on myth and are fuelled by subsidies, so the only way forward is more of the very same. It took politicians and punters around a decade to cotton on to the hopeless unreliability and chaotic intermittency of solar and wind power.  Which required an […]

Power Politics: Want to Win Elections? Then Don’t Ignore Spiralling Electricity Prices

With Biden and the Squad in the White House, the Californian experience of spiralling power prices will soon be delivered to all Americans, thanks to a raft of suicidal renewable energy policies that are about to be landed across the USA. The energy hungry businesses and industries that Trump brought home, will soon start packing […]

Renewable Energy Transition: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Germans Suffering the World’s Highest Power Prices

The only things ‘inevitable’ about ‘transitioning’ to wind and solar are rocketing power prices, load shedding and mass blackouts. Ask a German or South Australian. Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie, as does Denmark and South Australia, […]

Industrial Devolution: Renewables Obsession Leaves German Industry Crushed By Rocketing Power Prices

No country went harder and faster with its renewable obsession than Germany. The rocketing power prices that inevitably followed are crushing its once thriving industries, including motor manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz. The idea that a critical input cost to manufacturing can be tripled without affecting profitability and employment is, as any student of that dismal […]

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 […]

Power Shock: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Sends German Power Prices Into Orbit

Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie, as does Denmark and South Australia, which each jockey for line honours in the world’s highest power prices stakes. No country has squandered more treasure on giant windmills and an endless […]

Unbearable Burden: Mounting Cost of Subsidised Wind & Solar Crushing Poorest Power Consumers

It’s an unassailable fact: add heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid and power prices skyrocket. South Australians, Danes and Germans fight for line honours over which of their proletariat suffers the world’s highest power prices. As to the Australian states hooked up to the Eastern Grid, Dr Michael Crawford’s simple […]

Guaranteed ‘Green’ Energy Punishment: US Renewable Portfolio Standards Send Power Prices Soaring

That reliance on chaotically intermittent wind and solar sends power prices into orbit is no surprise to a German, South Australian or Dane. That RE obsessed trio slug it out for the honour of suffering the world’s highest power prices (see above). Try as they might, RE zealots simply can’t escape the bleeding obvious: South […]
