The Great Green Lie: Wind & Solar Aren’t Saving The Planet, They’re Wrecking It

The idea that unreliable wind and solar can save the planet is one of the greatest lies, ever told. In touting their purported environmental credentials, the crony capitalists, rent-seekers and fawning advocates never take into account any of the associated costs. It’s all sunshine and suitably stiff breezes, as far as the wind and sun […]

Fake News: Debunking Claims That Britain’s Set to Light Up Europe With Wind Power

Never short on audacity, Britain’s wind industry is now peddling the myth that it’ll soon be lighting up all of Europe. Notwithstanding the fact that it was forced to fire up its coal-fired power plants to overcome the Big Calm in the last months of 2021, when wind power output collapsed across the UK and […]

Green New Deal Gamble: Democrats Playing Russian Roulette With America’s Energy Future

Across the globe, the quest for wind and solar power domination has taken on all the menace of a friendly round of Russian roulette. The front runners in the USA, California and Texas, have already experienced life-threatening wind and solar output collapses; during statewide heatwaves in the former, and during last February’s Big Freeze, in […]

Subsidised Suicide: 2021 Revealed Wind & Solar To Be Unreliable & Utterly Useless

Wind and solar are said to be ‘cheap’, but then so’s talk. 2021 was the year when wind and solar were revealed to be thoroughly useless, thanks to their inherent intermittency and general lack of reliability. Starting in September last year, for months on end, Europe’s wind power fleet struggle to produce any consistent power […]

2021’s Renewables Debacle In Review: Fickle Wind & Sun Face Bitter Accusations

Just when the ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future was supposed to be in the bag, thoroughly calm weather dashed all hopes. $Trillions in subsidies have been thrown at wind and solar power outfits, with no end to the largess in sight. All the while, the rent seekers and propagandists have been […]

Battle for Britain: Brits Scramble For Reliable Energy After Repeated Wind Power Failures

Hardly anyone in Britain is talking about wind power as a serious generation source, anymore. Total collapses in wind power output that lasted for days and even weeks, starting back in September, put paid to that kind of loose chatter. Instead, Brits appear to have been struck with the stark realisation that their power generation […]

UK’s Costly Grid Chaos Continues, As Wind Power Continually Fails to Deliver

Start placing serious reliance on wind power and you can safely place your bets on daily disappointment. Such it is in Britain, with month upon month of pitiful performance from its fleet of whirling wonders. During most of September and into October, Europe’s wind farms were the victims of the Big Calm. The Wind Gods […]

Quality Fail: Wind Power Output During COP26 Embarrasses Climate Industrial Complex

The climate grifters who descended on Glasgow to tout the purported benefits of wind power were done in by the weather, as wind power output collapsed for weeks across Europe in the lead up to COP26. During most of September and into October, Europe’s wind farms were the victims of the Big Calm, when the […]

Post-Renewables Europe: Coal Prevents Mass Blackouts As Great Wind Drought Continues

While hot air output shot up in Glasgow, Europe’s great wind drought continues unabated. Wind power output amounted to a trickle through most of September and into October. We dubbed it the ‘Big Calm’. Well, the Big Calm appears now to be less of an anomaly than the new normal. In Britain, grid operators are […]

No Solution to Wind Power’s Hopeless Intermittency: Cost Kills Big Battery Myth

The big wind drought in Europe has acolytes ranting about giant batteries saving the day. It’s a typical but delusional response to wind power’s hopeless intermittency. True enough, at the margins, it is possible to store electricity. But, the cost of doing so on any kind of scale is simply out of this world. Then […]
