Rapacious Renewables: How The Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Is Devouring the Planet

Crony capitalists aren’t just promoting subsidised wind and solar, they see subsidised Electric Vehicles as yet another means of lining their pockets with taxpayers’ money. The marketing pitch is that this is all for the good of the Planet. Whirling wonders lovingly caressing breezes to capture ‘free energy’; energy-rich sunbeams falling gently onto sheets of […]

Biden’s Rapacious ‘Green’ Dream: Green New Deal Devouring World’s Rare Earth Minerals

Clean’, ‘green’ wind and solar were meant to save the planet, but the obsession with the unreliables will only expedite its consumption. Every solar panel and every wind turbine are an aggregation of minerals, requiring mountains of real energy in their creation. Many of those minerals are scarce, generally referred to as “rare earths”. Thanks […]

Renewables Driven Demand for Rare Earths Leaves America Vulnerable to CCP Extortion

Every wind turbine, every all EV and every solar panel critically depends upon a myriad of so-called ‘rare earths’. The minerals in question have become ‘rare’, of late, as a consequence of the Western world’s insatiable appetite for ‘feelgood’ electricity generated by sunshine and breezes, occasionally stored in giant lithium batteries, as well as the […]

New Green Deal Turns Sour: Counting Colossal Environmental Cost of Wind & Solar Obsession

  The true environmental and social cost of intermittent wind and solar is simply staggering. Millions of solar panels are already being dumped in landfill, and millions of nonrecyclable wind turbine blades are joining them; altogether creating a toxic legacy the generation who blindly championed so-called ‘green’ energy. A few posts back we carried a […]

What’s Under the Hood: The Dirty Secrets Of ‘Clean’ Electric Vehicles

  In their sillier moments, wind and solar advocates claim that we’ll all soon be driving electric vehicles, lovingly recharged with sunshine and breezes. In Australia, those seemingly virtuous souls with EVs are really being propelled by coal, because 85% of the electricity passing through its Eastern grid comes from coal-fired plants. It’s an irony, […]

Filthy ‘Green’ Future: The Dark & Toxic Side of Wind & Solar Power

  There’s nothing ‘clean’ or ‘green’ about wind and solar power and anyone telling you otherwise is either an idiot, or they’re in on it. The faux environmentalist is easy to spot: he loves industrial wind power and couldn’t care less about the environmental destruction it causes. Faced with the rampant slaughter of birds and […]

Toxic Truth: Millions Of Solar Panels & Wind Turbine Blades Destined For Landfills

The so-called wind and solar ‘industries’ are barely out of nappies, and yet they’re already responsible for a smorgasbord of toxic waste. The magnets in wind turbine generators are made from neodymium and dysprosium, rare earth minerals mined almost exclusively in China, which controls 95 percent of the world’s supply of rare earth minerals. The […]

Wind Industry Myths Busted: Twenty-Five Reasons Why Intermittent Wind Power Fails

Wind power is a monumental failure: not just costly and chaotic, the claim that it amounts to a meaningful power source is pure nonsense. Notorious examples like South Australia, prove the point: this is the state that set and met its own 50% renewable energy target, became renowned as the wind power capital of Australia, […]

‘Green’ Energy’s Double Standards: Real Environmental Cost of Wind & Solar an Inconvenient Truth

Paul Driessen is senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (www.CFACT.org), and author of Eco-Imperialism: Green power – Black death and other books on the environment. Here’s Paul unpacking the myth that wind and solar are both clean and green. Fair trade for thee, but not for me Watts up With That Paul Driessen […]

Wind Industry’s Dirty Little Secret: Turbines to Generate 40 Million Tonnes of Toxic Waste

Environmentalists of the kind lovingly called ‘tree huggers’ (rather than wind turbine worshippers) are finally cottoning on to the fact that the wind industry is anything but the ‘clean, green’ energy source its proponents claim it to be. In this piece, Emily Wade makes her indignation palpable; it’s almost as if she’s been played for […]
