Part-Time Power: Subsidised Solar World’s Most Expensive Virtue Signalling Exercise

There is a place for solar power, but it ain’t connected to a power grid. Delivering power for no more than seven hours a day (ordinarily between five and six hours, at best, and less in winter) means sticking solar panels on homes connected to conventional power grids makes no sense at all. As the […]

Worthless Wind & Solar: Once Again Output Totally Collapses During Freezing Weather

Keen to survive when dead-calm, freezing weather sets in? You’d better have access to nuclear or fossil-fuelled power sources, simply because wind and solar generators are bound to deliver absolutely nothing, at all. Texans and Germans know all about it. Now, Canadians are getting a taste of what it is when you pin your daily […]

Dangerous Ice Age Looms: Wind Turbines Freeze Up & Fail During Winter Cold Snaps

  A changing climate’s said to justify massive subsidies to wind turbines and solar panels, but they’re as useless in frigid weather as they are when the mercury soars. The northern hemisphere turns on bitter winters – getting wind turbines and solar panels to turn on in the midst of one, is another matter. Last […]

Europe’s Fossil-Fuelled Future: Winter Wind & Solar Collapse Means Coal & Gas Here to Stay

For a few centuries in human history, windmills were the only game in town. Then, in the 18th Century, the captains of British scientific and engineering endeavour harnessed thermal power, the Industrial […]
