Fact Check: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Will Never Replace Fossil Fuels

The wind and solar ‘industries’ were built on lies and run on subsidies. As to the former, for more than 20 years a phalanx of propagandists has worked overtime to literally turn night into day. Lines like the ‘wind is always blowing somewhere’, ‘sunset’s not a problem’, this ‘wind farm will power XXX hundred thousand […]

No Deal: New ‘Green’ Deal Means Return to the Impoverished Dark Ages

There’s something amusing about watching well-fed, first world teenagers hit the streets to rail about fossil fuels, just before mummy collects them in a stonking V8 Land Cruiser, whisking them away to their perfectly air-conditioned homes, jampacked with every electronic gadget, imaginable. The louder and more earnest their demands for an end to the use […]

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 […]

Ripping Yarns: Wind & Sun Can’t Power the World: Never Have & Never Will

You know we’ve reached peak stupid when adults line up to be lectured by troubled teenage girls on energy and world economics. Greta the Fretter and the lunatics gluing themselves to roads under the banner of the Extinction Rebellion have made the work of the sane and rational so much easier. For a decade or […]

Half-Baked Hoax: Claims For All Wind & Solar Powered Future Are Pure Fantasy

No country has ever powered itself entirely with wind and solar. No country ever will. The image above is not the crazed doodlings of a maniac, it’s the combined output of every wind turbine connected to Australia’s Eastern Grid last month thanks to Aneroid Energy. Note the numerous occasions when output plummets by 2-3,000MW in minutes, […]

Renewables ‘Transition’: UK Solar Industry Doomed as Subsidies Slashed – Panel Sales Plummet by 94%

Wasn’t it only yesterday we were told that wind and solar are so cheap that our RE ‘transition’ was inevitable? Well, that was then, this is now. Proving the point, we make almost every day – namely that there wouldn’t be wind turbines or solar panels, on any serious scale, anywhere in the world, in […]

BP’s ‘Green’ Hypocrisy: Why Big Oil Promotes Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar

Remember all that talk a few years back about wind and solar replacing fossil fuels, forever? No? That’s because they can’t, and never will. Sunset and calm weather mean wind and solar can and will never replace conventional power generators. By ‘conventional’ we mean coal, gas, nuclear and, where geography and geology permit, stored hydro […]
