Energy Embrace: Nuclear Power’s Inherent Reliability Key To Permanent Energy Security

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has focused minds on energy policy like nothing before. Europe’s self-defeating reliance on Russian oil and gas has exposed the so-called wind and solar ‘transition’ as a delusional farce. Adding chaotically intermittent wind and solar to a grid, while driving reliable and affordable coal-fired plants to the wall, inevitably requires oil […]

Dead End Street: There’s No High-Tech Fix For Wind & Solar’s Hopeless Intermittency

Europe’s obsession with intermittent wind and solar has left it exposed to an ambitious Russian who controls the oil and gas on which Europe critically depends. As Vlad’s Ukrainian adventure bogs down among shattered tanks and morale, his threat to chop oil and gas supplies to Europe increases, revealing just how dependent Europe has become […]

Game Over: Vlad Putin’s Ukrainian Invasion Spells The End For ‘Green’ Energy Dream

All of a sudden, energy security and affordability is the new black. The Russian onslaught in Ukraine has focused thinking on energy supplies, like nothing before. The West has taken its energy advantages for granted, for far too long. But, the energy pricing and supply calamity that’s followed Vlad’s aggressive bid for territorial expansion, has […]

No Nonsense Solution: Nuclear Ultimate Answer to Powering an Energy Hungry World

Nothing focuses thinking on energy policy like not having heat, light and power on tap. With Europe now hostage to its aggressive Eastern neighbour – thanks to a maniacal obsession with intermittent wind and solar and the need to back it up with oil and gas – policy wonks of all descriptions have started talking […]

Russia’s Ukrainian Invasion Equation: Europe Ditches Wind & Solar Transition

Like a jilted bride, wind and solar have lost all love and favour as Europe scrambles for reliable and affordable energy. Now it seems that the only inevitable thing about the ‘inevitable transition’ is that when people are forced to choose between electricity delivered reliably and affordably and the purportedly clean and green kind, they […]

Critical Power Grab: How Putin Profits From The West’s Wind & Solar Obsession

Europe’s ‘inevitable’ transition to wind and solar is in tatters, as Vlad Putin rips up Ukraine and delivers an energy pricing and supply calamity to shellshocked Europeans. The idea that got them there was fairly simple: carpet Europe with millions of solar panels and wind turbines and use Russian oil and gas to keep the […]

No End Date For Coal & Nuclear: Gas Crunch Drives Germany’s Grand Renewables Backflip

A month or so back, Germany’s green-infested government was talking up the end of coal and nuclear power plants; the last phase in its ‘inevitable’ transition to an all wind and sun-powered future, as the wind and sun cult would have it. Well. That was then, this is now. With the squeeze on Russian gas […]

Reality Check: Europe’s ‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar Transition Unwinds In Ukraine

  That the West has become weak and silly, is best exemplified by its concerted efforts to wreck hitherto reliable and affordable energy supplies. While policy wonks will argue forever about the precise casus belli for Putin’s attack on Ukraine, it is unarguable that Europe’s insatiable demand for Russian oil and gas has allowed Putin […]

Gas Blow Out: Vlad’s Invasion Exposes European Renewable Energy Policy Insanity

You know it’s a cult when innocents are being wiped out by shells and missiles and they’re fretting that we’ll lose our focus on the weather, as a result. As Russian tanks began shelling family homes across Ukraine, missiles struck home and air raid sirens screamed over Kyiv, John Kerry worried that Vlad’s westward expansion […]
