American Resistance: Rural Communities Reject Destructive & Disruptive Wind Power Projects

One wind industry myth is that farmers and families can’t wait to have 300 tonne wind turbines speared into their backyards. A raft of litigation, protests and open hostility to the wind industry, in general, and wind developers, in particular, suggests otherwise. As Robert Bryce details below, rural communities are not prepared to give up the […]

Dead End Power Trip: Land Hungry Wind Power Always a Problem & Never a Solution

  Wind power is a problem without a solution. Output collapses when breezes turn to zephyrs and when bluster turns to a gale: wind turbines automatically shut off as wind speeds reach 25 m/s (90km/h, 55mp/h or 48 knots). As South Australians found out on 28 September 2016 – when the whole State went black, […]

Crushing Poverty: Poorest Pay Highest Price for California’s Wind & Solar Obsession

  Since World War II affordable power was regarded as a birthright: RE obsessed virtue signallers have destroyed that notion in a heartbeat. In California, the institutionalised malice that is part and parcel of subsidised wind and solar has run into resistance from those blessed with a little human compassion. Compassion, that is, for their […]

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 […]

RE Fails During Heatwave: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Californians Sweltering in the Dark

  Plug your energy needs into the sun and wind and expect plenty of disappointment, especially when it counts. Renewable energy zealots always talk a ‘big game’ – perpetually raving about how this wind farm or that sea of solar panels will ‘power’ hundreds of thousands of homes, for free, forever. Then the sun sets […]

US Wind Power Fraud: It’s Coal, Gas & Nuclear That Powers the Land of the Free

America’s resurgent prosperity is partly the product of its recent shale oil and gas revolution. From sea to shining sea, the US is awash with cheap gas; adding to its already abundant supplies of coal. With electricity prices around one third the cost paid in wind and solar obsessed Australia, anyone promoting that pair in […]

Delusion & Fantasy Drives RE Advocates’ Bizarre Claims of All-Wind & Solar Powered Future

Anyone pumping wind and solar in 2018 is rightly regarded as a little ‘touched’, but those still suggesting an all wind and sun powered future are positively ‘certifiable’. Millions of solar panels have been strewn around the planet; and hundreds of thousands of wind turbines have been speared in every corner of both hemispheres. And […]
