Obsession With Intermittent Wind & Solar Spells R.I.P. For Reliable Power Supplies

Reliance on weather-dependent wind and sunshine-dependent solar means the end for reliable and affordable power supplies. Australia’s wind and solar obsession is beginning to bite, with power prices soaring out of control and power rationing the new normal. With a new band of hard-green-left lunatics in charge, things will only get worse. In America, things […]

Blackout Blame Shifting: Wind & Solar Collapses Responsible For Unplanned Power Outages

Wind and solar generators happily take credit when the sun’s up and the wind’s blowing, but dodge all criticism when blackouts follow sunset and/or calm weather. The standard trick is to point in every direction – except the obvious – when power rationing (euphemistically called “demand management”) or unplanned power rationing (aka widespread blackouts) follows […]

Green Dream Delivers Daily Reality: Power Rationing, Blackouts & Rocketing Power Bills

In the fantasy land occupied by green dreamers, the wind is always blowing and the sun is always shining. Not for them the reality of sunset and calm weather. It’s their truth, and they’re sticking with it. Destabilising grids and power markets, chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar may be beloved of crony […]

Energy Insecurity: Biden’s Policies Leave Americans Vulnerable to Unreliable Wind & Solar

With the magnitude of the renewable energy-driven disaster playing out in Europe hard to ignore, it seems incredible that American Green New Deal Democrats remain fixated on chaotically intermittent wind and solar. And yet, they show no signs of relenting on their determined path to inevitable energy insecurity; an approach that borders on National treachery. […]

Why Wind & Solar Will Never Be Meaningful Power Sources (It’s A Reliability Thing)

In a word association game, you’ll never find ‘reliability’ paired up with ‘wind’ or ‘solar’. Sunset and calm weather are very real things and so is the idea that power consumers want power as and when they need it, not when the sun’s shining at its zenith in a bright blue sky or the wind […]

The Weather: Why Wind Power Will Always Be Hopelessly Intermittent & Unreliable

Here’s the news: wind power critically depends upon the wind, without which there ain’t no wind power. Simples. Beyond seven days meteorologists are little more than glorified soothsayers when it comes to predicting the weather. How many times do we see revised forecasts given the day before, when only a week before that, the maximum […]

Brace For Blackouts: World’s Reliance On Unreliable Wind & Solar Spells Energy Disaster

Topping the list of things that seemed like a good idea at the time sits wind and solar power. What, with the energy sources that drive them free and natural; with no visible emissions of spent gas or fumes; with their shiny panels harvesting the sun’s rays and delivering electricity for five or six hours […]

Let Them Freeze: Wind & Solar Generators Couldn’t Care Less About Your Welfare

The wind and solar industries couldn’t care less whether you freeze to death when winter bites across the northern hemisphere and wind and solar output collapse. Solar panels plastered in snow and ice produce nothing; wind turbines frozen solid during breathless, frigid weather produce even less (they actually consume power from the grid to run […]

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 […]

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 […]
