Fading History: Britain’s Renewables Obsession Renders Reliable & Affordable Power Distant Memory

Back in August, Brits had their first taste of the kind of grid chaos inevitably delivered when you pin your hopes on the weather. Mass blackouts are the inevitable consequence of the notion that a modern economy can power itself on sunshine and breezes. As Brits are learning to their cost and consternation, electricity generation […]

Brits Belted: UK’s Subsidised Wind Power Obsession Leaves 3,000,000 Households Suffering Energy Poverty

Millions of British households face another bitter winter, unable to meet their rocketing power bills. An obsession with chaotically intermittent wind power (both off and onshore) has sent power prices spiralling. And, adding to the misery, the annual cost of renewable energy subsidies, Feed in Tariffs, fixed contract prices for wind and solar etc to […]

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 […]

Subsidy Suckers: Britain’s Solar Industry Wallowing in Massive Subsidies, While Power Prices Rocket

The wind and solar industries exist for one reason, and one reason only: massive subsidies. There’s a reason that holidaying Sun-seekers rarely put Britain on their bucket list. Dismally short days during bitter winters suggest that the UK would be one of the last places anyone would contemplate any serious reliance on solar power. And […]

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 […]

Europe’s Energy Crisis: Counting the Staggering Cost of Subsidising Unreliable Wind & Solar

Adding inherently unreliable and heavily subsidised wind and solar to your grid is a guarantee of rocketing power prices. Every place in the world that got serious about wind and solar is being belted with serious increases in electricity costs. Wind and solar ‘powered’ Germany and wind ‘powered’ Denmark pay Europe’s highest power prices, by […]

‘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 […]
