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 […]

Boris Blown Away: True Cost of PM’s Offshore Wind Power Plan is Absolutely Staggering

A MW of intermittent offshore wind power capacity costs up to 17 times the cost of a thoroughly reliable MW of gas-fired power generation. And, whereas, the latter is available around-the-clock, the former is available when Mother Nature deems fit. And she tends to be a temperamental, old cow. One particular wheeze among Britain’s renewable […]

Boris Goes Bonkers: UK Set to Squander A Further £50,000,000,000 On Failed Wind Power Experiment

If insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, then Boris Johnson is clearly barking mad. The UK PM’s latest cunning plan is to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on government guaranteed fixed price contracts – paying way above market rates – subsidies and taxpayer support for chaotically intermittent wind […]

Descent of Man: Britain’s Suicidal Renewable Energy Policy Lays A Path To Poverty

Britain is reaping the sorry rewards of its wind power obsession, with spiralling power prices and an increasingly unreliable power supply. Back in August last year we reported on a mass blackout that struck Britain, when an offshore wind farm decided to down tools: Blackout Nation: Wind Power Output Collapse Leaves Millions of Brits Totally Powerless […]

Zero Sum Game: UK’s Economy Wrecking Zero CO2 Emissions Target Would Cost Brits £1.5 Trillion

If the UK’s suicidal renewable energy policy weren’t enough, British climate boffins are pushing for a zero carbon dioxide gas emissions target. There’s something comical about watching virtue signallers trying to outdo each other. For the true zealot, emissions targets are always too soft, and anything short of a 100% renewable energy target, is not […]

Brits Belted: Renewables Deliver Wholesale Energy Poverty – Poorest Families Left Power-less

RE zealots reckon that an uptick in the number of frozen grannies is a small price to pay for our ‘inevitable’ wind and solar powered future. As Brits brace for another frigid winter, spare a thought for the hundreds of thousands who – thanks to rocketing power prices driven by Britain’s renewables obsession – will […]

‘Green’ Energy Fail: Counting the Staggering Cost of Britain’s CO2 Emissions Reduction Policy

When it comes to reducing carbon dioxide gas, wind power is touted as the perfect panacea – turns out it’s an abject failure on that score, too. Leaving aside arguments about whether CO2 is a toxic pollutant or a naturally occurring beneficial trace gas which plants crave, the primary object of Britain’s effort to power […]
