Global Conspiracy: Climate Alarmists Predict Dismal Future for Wind Power as ‘The ‘Big Calm’ Looms

It takes a special brand of delusion to believe a modern economy can be powered by the weather. While weather forecasters struggle to get their daily predictions to match reality any more than 7 days in advance, climate warriors have no reticence in predicting the temperature 30 years from now. As American baseball and pop […]

Dead End Power Trip: Land Hungry Wind Power Always a Problem & Never a Solution

  Wind power is a problem without a solution. Output collapses when breezes turn to zephyrs and when bluster turns to a gale: wind turbines automatically shut off as wind speeds reach 25 m/s (90km/h, 55mp/h or 48 knots). As South Australians found out on 28 September 2016 – when the whole State went black, […]

Hopelessly Helpless: German Wind Power Fails 93.3% Of The Time & Collapses in Minutes

  When the challenge is thrown at wind power proponents about its hopeless intermittency, like a drug addict, the answer is always “more”. More of the same, more turbines, more panels, more subsidies, more transmission network capacity, more non-existent mega batteries, well, just more. Germany is held up as the shining example of what our […]

Total Flop: After 30 Years & Massive Subsidies, Wind & Solar Satisfies 1.1% of Global Energy Demand

The idea that one day soon we’ll all be powered by sunshine and breezes is infantile nonsense. No modern economy has ever powered itself entirely with wind and solar power. Still, we’re continually berated with the notion that our ‘transition’ to all wind and sun powered future is ‘inevitable’. Step back for a moment and […]

Road to Nowhere: Wind Power’s Pathetic Performance Continues All Across Europe

  With the wind always blowing somewhere, it’s claimed that if turbines are spread far and wide, there’ll be a constant supply of wind ‘energy’. Except whole countries and indeed vast tracts of whole continents face dead-calm weather on a routine and regular basis. South-eastern Australia is home to 5,000MW of wind power capacity, spread […]

Summer Holiday-Hell: Power Consumers Face Staggering Bill Whenever Wind Power Goes AWOL

When RE zealots talk about the ‘transition’ to wind and solar, they never specify when. They say it’s ‘inevitable’, but always kick the can down the road when pressed about precisely when we’ll all be powered by nothing but sunshine and breezes. Perhaps it’s got something to do with sunset? Or maybe even the weather? […]

No Contest: Wind & Solar Can Never Compete With Ever Reliable & Affordable Coal-Fired Power

  It won’t be long before RE zealots are forced to accept defeat: wherever you look, coal, gas, hydro and nuclear keep thrashing wind and solar. Not simply because they’re cheaper, but because they work. And when we say ‘work’ STT means delivering power when and whenever consumers need it. STT doesn’t promote coal-fired power […]
