Net Zero Madness: Why Wind Power Expansion Plans Don’t Add Up

Akin to pushing on string, you can keep building these things ad infinitum and add nothing in terms of meaningful power generation capacity. It doesn’t matter whether a wind power fleet comprises a hundred, a thousand or a million wind turbines, when the wind stops blowing, they will deliver an almighty, collective doughnut. And it’s […]

Climate Short-Changed: Big Calm Heralds Britain’s Renewable Energy Crunch

Appears the climate doomsayers were right: the ‘Big Calm’ has struck Britain and Western Europe – slashing wind power output, without relent. Far from being the panacea for a changing climate, wind power generation is now, apparently, a victim. Over the last few months, wind power output has thoroughly collapsed in Germany, across Western Europe […]

All-Electric Future Fizzles: EV Chargers First Target For RE Power Rationing

The trope has it that soon we’ll all be auto-piloted by EVs charged by electrons lovingly caressed from sunshine and breezes. Although, if that vision is ever realised, expect to hear more about collisions between stray unicorns and EVs, which is just as likely as an RE-powered all-EV future. Meanwhile, back on Earth, grid managers […]

Wind Industry Jobs Myth Turning Britain Into Venezuelan Economic Basket Case

The ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future comes with a promise of an endless sea of ‘groovy’ sustainable jobs in the manufacture of solar panels and wind turbines and much more, besides. However, across the globe, the great ‘green’ jobs ‘bonanza’ is being revealed for the hoax that it truly is. […]

Outbreak of Seriously Calm Weather Forces Brits Back to Ever-Reliable Coal-Fired Power

To the horror of the wind cult, Britain has been forced to fire up its coal-fired power plants. As if power consumers should have no power, at all, every time calm weather sets in. How dare householders and businesses demand power when they need it? Shouldn’t it be enough that they can have power whenever […]

Nero Fiddles: China’s Nuclear Power Push Threatens Any Country Still Toying With Wind & Solar

America’s retreat from Afghanistan has left the door wide open to an increasingly belligerent China. China takes itself very seriously on every front; whether it’s the question of military power or power, period. Building coal-fired power plants, hand over fist, the CCP couldn’t give a fig about CO2 emissions of the kind that have weather-warriors […]

Atomic Alternative: Nuclear Power Only Pathway to Net-Zero Emissions

Householders, businesses, indeed, power consumers of all shapes and sizes are bracing themselves for the suicidal results of looming Net-Zero CO2 emissions targets. We’ll start from the premise that nothing will shake the resolve of the lunatics who pretend to govern us, when it comes to their do or die quest for reducing man-made emissions […]

Pump It Up: Wind ‘Powered’ Britain Draining Europe’s Coal-Fired Plants via French Interconnector

Britain’s energy supply is in perfect chaos, the natural result of its increased reliance on totally unreliable wind power. Ostensibly, the UK has the benefit of its ‘superio’ offshore wind ‘resource’, providing what’s pitched as practically free electricity, caressed lovingly from mother nature. Behind-the-scenes, however, the story of what’s keeping the lights on in Britain […]

Brits Biggest Losers: China Biggest Winner From Boris Johnson’s £50bn Wind Power Plan

Offshoring jobs and lining the pockets of foreign wind turbine makers is part and parcel of Britain’s giant wind power scam. Boris Johnson’s plan to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on subsidies and over-the-market contracts for intermittent offshore wind power is positively bonkers. At a time when Britain needs all the help it can get to claw itself […]

Economically Unhinged: Bonkers Boris Johnson’s Green Fantasy Guaranteed to Bankrupt Britain

Boris ‘Bonkers’ Johnson’s plan to ‘power’ Britain on wishes, sunshine and breezes is more like Alice’s trip down the rabbit hole. Intriguing and fascinating, yes. But also a complete and utter fantasy. The concept smacks of delusion, at every level. Neil Collins tackles the topic from the economic perspective. This green fantasy will bankrupt us […]
