Renewable Energy’s Dirty Dozen: 12 Reasons Why Chaotically Intermittent & Heavily Subsidised Wind & Solar Power Make No Sense

It takes a special brand of delusion to believe that the world can run on sunshine and breezes. For wind and sun worshippers, disastrous examples like South Australia – where mass blackouts and load shedding have become the new normal – require not just practiced delusion but a form of self-flagellating stoicism, as well. Oh, […]

The Wind God’s New Clothes: Why Weather Dependent Power Generation Can Never Work

  The wind’s fickleness is no mystery to kite flyers and sailors, yet wind power still gets pumped as if it’s cutting edge technology. Those few places attempting to run on nature’s wonder fuels have become economic debacles. One of those, RE ‘superpower’, South Australia has suffered routine load shedding for years, and rocketing power […]

Chaotic Wind & Solar Power: A Pair of Guaranteed Grid Wreckers

There’s no place on the planet where wind and solar power perform anything like the overblown rhetoric that surrounds them. [Note to Ed: has it got something to do with the weather and the Earth’s rotation?] As wind and solar power capacity increases it becomes harder for RE zealots to hide the cruel and unassailable […]

US Judge Delivers Verdict: Intermittent Renewables Will Never Replace Coal, Gas & Nuclear

  A class of miserable human-haters detests the idea that energy should be freely available, to all. Instead, they go out of their way to promote costly, unreliable and intermittent wind and solar: a pair that will only ever deliver power at the margins; which depend upon massive, never-ending subsidies; cost a fortune to deliver; […]

Wind Power: World’s Greatest Joke – UK Left Powerless During the ‘Big Calm’

The greatest joke ever played on the world is the idea that the wind can – and will soon completely – power modern economies. When the wind disappears for days and even weeks on end, those that promote it tend to get twitchy and change the subject. Sometimes it’s mutterings about mega-batteries (that don’t exist) […]

Wind ‘Powered’ Britain Scrambles to Build Nuclear Power Plants as UK Wind ‘Drought’ Hits

There’s a reason that windmills were abandoned in the 19th century: it’s called “the wind”. In 2018, only profiteers and idiots remain as advocates for wind power. In the former category stands Bloomberg, which has been front and centre when it comes to promoting the purported ‘virtues’ of subsidised wind and solar. So, it’s somewhat […]

If Wind and Sunshine are Free, Why Is It That Wind & Solar Power Are So Expensive?

Facts tend to flummox renewable energy zealots, especially the way adding wind and solar sends power prices into orbit (see above). After all, they keep telling us that the wind and sun are absolutely free, and getting cheaper all the time. Here’s America’s top green, Michael Shellenberger taking an axe to another RE furphy. A […]
