Self-Inflicted Wind & Solar Calamity Forces Brits to Embrace Reliable Nuclear Power

Necessity is the mother of energy policy reinvention, and safe, reliable and affordable nuclear is at the heart of it. In Britain, thanks to its obsession with heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar, power prices are already at astronomical levels. Its political betters are ruing the day they determined to trash their coal-fired […]

Time to Ditch Meaningless Medieval Wind Power & Embrace Modern Nuclear Power

Wind power was abandoned centuries ago, for pretty obvious reasons, known to kite flyers and sailors, since the beginning of time. Sure, in medieval times, when there was no alternative, harnessing nature’s energy make sense. But not now. It was coal that dragged Europe out of the Dark Ages, by providing around-the-clock power, not windmills. […]

Europe’s Self-inflicted Renewable Energy Disaster Drives Nuclear Power Renaissance

The race to secure reliable and affordable power is on and nuclear power has already crossed the finish line. 2021 was the year when the inherent unreliability of wind and solar revealed how everything depends upon reliable and affordable power supplies. The wind and solar ‘industries’ talk a big game; and in their wilder moments even claim […]

Wind Power ‘Droughts’ Mean Nuclear Power Key To Neutralising Net-Zero Madness

Europe’s persistent and ongoing wind drought spells the end for never-reliable wind power and the renaissance of ever-reliable nuclear. As a consequence of the Big Calm and a total collapse in wind power output across Western Europe and the UK, the Brits have now enlisted Rolls Royce to build a fleet of small modular reactors. […]

Post-Renewables Reality: Nuclear Power Generation Easy Solution For Energy Starved World

Europe’s great wind drought has focused attention on the unassailable fact that wind power is an utterly meaningless power source. The demand for electricity is, always and everywhere, a ‘here and now’ kind of thing. Households and businesses couldn’t care less if there’s a roaring gale and plenty of wind power at 2 in the […]

Wind Change: Net-Zero Emissions Target Guarantees Nuclear Powered Future

Wind and solar zealots may have scored own goal with their push for net-zero carbon dioxide gas emissions targets. The reason being is that nuclear power is the only stand-alone power generation system capable of delivering electricity 24 x 365 – irrespective of the weather, without generating carbon dioxide gas, in the process. The Big […]

Europe’s Epic Renewable Energy Fail Makes Transition to Nuclear Power Truly Inevitable

The fastest way to get people thinking about electricity, is to deprive them of it. Europe’s power pricing and supply calamity has sharpened thinking and provided a golden opportunity for engineers and free-market economists to wrest back control from ideologues and renewable energy rent-seekers. Until the Big Calm hit Western Europe last month – causing […]

Emerging From Darkness: Britain’s Mass Blackout Drives Push For Ever-Reliable Nuclear Power

It’s amazing how quickly millions of minds left freezing or boiling in the dark focus on the importance of having power as and when it’s needed. Wind and solar obsessed South Australians set the benchmark for blackouts and mass load shedding. Now the UK and had its first taste of the kind of grid chaos […]
