Paltry Pair: After $Trillions in Subsidies & 30 Years, Wind & Solar’s Contribution Remains Risible

Believe the hype, and you’d think that we’re already being powered almost exclusively by sunshine and breezes. Well, the facts say otherwise. Despite squandering hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies, forcing power retailers to adhere to mandated targets etc, etc, over the last 30 years – the combined contribution of wind and solar remains […]

Fantastic Nonsense: Wind Industry Performance Claims Simply Don’t Stack Up

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’. In reality, the only thing that […]

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 […]

Wind & Solar’s Mega-Cost Delivers Mega-Failure: RE Supplying Less than 1% During Peak Demand

If you live in Australia, and you’re reading this post, you’re doing so thanks to coal. If you don’t like it, shut your device down now. The electricity that’s powering it, your home, the internet, etc, etc isn’t coming from sunshine and breezes. It’s coming from a coal-fired power plant. So, deal with it! Over […]

Renewables Rip-Off: Despite $4 Billion in Annual Subsidies, Wind & Solar Delivers a Trivial 2% of Australia’s Power Demand

In any bargain, those stumping up their own cash, tend to ask what they’re getting in return. When it comes to the billions in subsidies thrown at windmills and solar panels, the answer is: not much. Including domestic, rooftop solar annual subsidies to wind and solar add up to a staggering $4 billion. The cost […]

Long Way to Run: Fossil Fuel Powers the World Now & For Generations to Come

  The zealots that pump up the future for wind and solar power are programed to ignore the present and bound to ignore the past. For a few centuries in human history, windmills were the only game in town. Then, in the 18th Century, the captains of British scientific and engineering endeavour harnessed thermal power, […]

Risible Renewables: 30 Years and $Trillions in Subsidies – Wind & Solar’s Total Output Less than 1% of World Energy Demand

A decade from now, as grids collapse and businesses and households are driven into penury, because they can no longer afford their rocketing power bills, the current generation will have plenty of time to lament (albeit, sitting freezing or boiling in the dark). South Australians, with a deluded and dangerous Labor Premier, utterly obsessed with […]
