False Dawn: On The Hollow Promise Of An All Wind & Solar Powered Future

Back in 1983 the American Wind Industry Association claimed that solar and wind would be “competitive and self-supporting on a national level by the end of the decade if assisted by tax credits and augmented by federally sponsored R&D”. That was 36 years ago. There has been no lack of assistance in the form of […]

Retro-Power: Australia’s Wind & Solar Obsession Delivers Third World Power Supply

Australia’s obsession with intermittent wind and solar is delivering a power supply you’d expect to find in the darkest corners of the Third World. Yet again, peak power demand in summer has renewable energy zealots berating consumers for having the temerity to turn on air-conditioners, dishwashers and appliances. Yet again, the same zealots waffle on […]

Priceless: Scots Forced to Pay Wind Farms £650,000,000 To NOT Generate Power

Once upon a time, electricity had a value defined by demand, not by the weather. Power that can’t be delivered as and when it’s needed has absolutely no commercial value. Which brings us to weather-dependent wind power; generated in chaotic, random intervals, it’s a case of either feast or famine. But businesses and households don’t […]

Lying To Survive: Desperate Wind Industry Claims That Wind Power’s Both Reliable & Cheap Busted (Again)

The wind industry was built on lies and runs on subsidies. Spin doctors, practised in the fine art of deception, have been gainfully employed for almost 30 years in an effort to turn night into day, in order to keep the subsidies coming and to prevent them from ever being cut. Politicians and a gullible […]

Renewable Energy Regrets: Intermittent Wind & Solar Delivers Grid Chaos for Californians

The only thing that’s inevitable about the so-called ‘transition’ to wind and solar is rocketing prices and grid chaos. The inability to deliver electricity as and when it’s needed, mean wind and solar have no commercial value – apart from the massive subsidies they attract. Being commercially worthless is one thing, but dumping volumes of […]

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 […]

Share Prices Plummet: Market Punishes Wind Power Outfits For Over-Blown Output Forecasts

The wind industry is built on lies and runs on subsidies, so it’s no surprise that the market has taken revenge on wind power outfits pitching up overblown output forecasts. One of them, Orsted (part owned by the Danish government) has seen its share price slashed, as investors recognise that they’ve been had. The knock-on […]
