Solar Smashed: French Solar ‘Industry’ Furious At Plan to Slash Annual €2 Billion Subsidy Bill

Wind and solar generators keep claiming their wares are the cheapest of all, which means the subsidies should end, now. If they were genuine, that is. But, much like a sharp poker player with a duff hand, renewable energy rent seekers stake their entire existence on no one ever having the temerity to call their […]

Time to Dump Subsidised Solar & Get Serious About Reliable & Affordable Power Generation

There’s not much wrong with solar power; except its exorbitant cost, limited and unreliable delivery and the toxic cocktail left behind when the panels expire after a decade of service, and end up crushed up in landfills. In remote locations, backed up with batteries and diesel generators, solar makes sense. However, in populated urban centres […]

Sunshine’s Free: But Solar Power’s More Than Double the Cost of Fossil Fuels and Nuclear

Sure, sunshine may be free, but solar power is the most expensive stuff around. And, of course, when the sky clouds up or the sun sets, solar power simply can’t be bought at any price. Assume, for the moment, the wind always blew and the sun always shone, then wind and solar power just might […]

Simply Staggering: What Weather Dependent Wind & Solar Really Costs

Renewables rent seekers keep telling us how cheap wind and solar are, compared to […]

Power Shock: Chicago University Proves Unreliable Wind & Solar Send Power Prices Soaring

Adding chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid is a guarantee of rocketing power prices. The battle between the Big Three wind and solar ‘superpowers’ – South Australia, Germany and Denmark – is all about whether its South Australians, Germans or Danes who get to suffer the world’s highest power prices. The current ‘winner’ […]

Out to Wreck Your Economy & Punish the Poor & Vulnerable? Try Intermittent Wind & Solar

A generation or so back, the ‘green’ was a well-meaning tree-hugger. Then along came CO2 gas which resulted in a new shade of ‘green’. Gone was any vestige of human empathy, let alone compassion, both replaced by a maniacal belief that humans are literally ‘cockroaches’, devouring planet Earth. Instead of hoping to improve the environment […]

‘Transition’ to Wind & Solar Sends German Power Prices Into Orbit: 328,000 Families Chopped from Grid

A deluded band of eco-Nazis keep telling us that rocketing power prices and unstable grids are just minor ‘teething problems’ on our way to an inevitable ‘transition’ to a brave new world run entirely on sunshine and breezes. The trouble is that with every turn of this Blue Planet the inevitable consequences of their obsession […]
