Wind ‘Powered’ Britain Scrambles to Build Nuclear Power Plants as UK Wind ‘Drought’ Hits

There’s a reason that windmills were abandoned in the 19th century: it’s called “the wind”. In 2018, only profiteers and idiots remain as advocates for wind power. In the former category stands Bloomberg, which has been front and centre when it comes to promoting the purported ‘virtues’ of subsidised wind and solar. So, it’s somewhat […]

Poorest Families Left Powerless: Britain Squanders £100 Billion on Renewable Energy

Subsidised wind and solar guarantee rocketing power prices, leaving plenty of pensioners and the poor powerless. You know you’re dealing with an ideologue when your antagonist couldn’t care less about the vulnerable and impoverished that drift along at the very edge of society. Justifying someone else’s suffering takes nerve, but it can be done (at […]

Britain Squanders £7bn a Year on Stone Age Wind Power

It takes a ‘special’ kind of person to still believe that a country can run itself on sunshine and breezes. Idolatry, zealotry, and good old-fashioned pig ignorance are worn like badges of honour amongst the wind and sun cult. Claims range from the ‘wind is always blowing somewhere’, ‘wind power is cheaper than coal’, and […]

Death’s Icy Grip: Climate Change Won’t Kill Granny, But Climate Change Policies Do

Children as young as five are now taught to fear global warming in the way their mean uncles once terrified them with tales of ghosts and bogeymen, in days gone past. Hysterical and overblown claims that runaway climate change is about to kill your granny are only half wrong: what’s likely to do the old […]

Brits Squander £360 million Paying Wind Power Outfits to NOT Produce Power

Britain is suffering from the same diabolical wind turbine syndrome that wrecked South Australia, Germany, Spain and the like. However, with construction of the Hinkley Point nuclear power plant now underway, it seems that the Brits have finally worked out that you cannot hope to run an economy on wintery bluster and summer breezes. The […]

UK Government Conceals Staggering Cost of Wind Power Subsidies

As STT keeps pointing out, it is the staggering cost of subsidising intermittent and unreliable wind power (for which there is no market in the absence of Soviet era mandates) that ultimately destroys the wind industry. Quite apparently aware of that fact, the UK government has sought to keep the lid on the figures which […]

Blackouts Beckon as Cost of Britain’s Wind Powered Energy ‘Transition’ Rockets

*** Britain went into wind power almost as fast and hard as Germany: the costs have been colossal and the effects on its power grid chaotic. Fortunately, however, David Cameron’s Conservatives followed an election manifesto, slashed subsidies to onshore wind power and gave planning veto rights back to communities. Inevitably, the construction of proposed onshore […]
