Dream On: Finite Mineral Resources Mean Grand Wind & Solar Transition Must Inevitably Fail

As the grand delusion of an all-wind and sun-powered future unravels in Europe, rational thinkers are turning to the insatiable demand for minerals that comes with the ‘inevitable transition’ and pointing out that what’s contemplated is not only impossible, but simply ludicrous. The volumes of high-value minerals such as copper and aluminium required in every […]

‘Green’ Fraud: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Devouring The Planet’s Scarce Resources

Rent-seekers and the MSM keep telling us the transition to an all-wind and sun-powered future is not only inevitable, it’s a cinch. The power pricing and supply calamity playing out in renewables-obsessed Germany and Britain stands as a pretty fair counterpoint, to that nonsense. Then, we’re told, it can all be done, provided it’s “done […]

Electric Dreams: Why We Can Never Run Exclusively On Wind & Solar Power

The next ‘big thing’ is an all-electric world, where power caressed from sunshine and breezes will provide all the energy, we ever need, for everything we ever do. Given the tag ‘electrification’, it sounds like another simple wheeze that only requires an open mind and a little goodwill. Well, like the grand wind and solar […]

Chairman Mao Returns: ‘Green’ Energy Cult Delivers Another ‘Great Leap Forward’

The ‘transition’ to wind and solar is delivering punishing power prices to those who can least afford it, and the inevitable power rationing surrounding collapses in wind and solar output is crushing businesses of all shapes and sizes. The zealots behind it couldn’t care less about the vulnerable and impoverished that drift along at the […]

Grand ‘Renewables’ Delusion: Hard Reality Keeps Smashing Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Myth

Zealots tout Germany as the benchmark for the ‘inevitable transition’ to wind and solar, but its energy system is a complete debacle; power rationing is the new normal and prices are through the roof. Indeed, any country that got serious about subsidising wind and solar is finding itself in serious trouble. Disastrous examples such as […]

Dark Days Ahead: Wind & Solar Obsessed Germany Braces For Mass Blackouts

A mixture of dread and panic has struck with the realisation that power rationing and rocketing prices are the only thing ‘inevitable’ about the grand wind and solar transition. Germany set its path towards energy poverty, economic and social chaos, almost 20 years ago. Now, with a little help from Vlad Putin and his strategic […]

‘Green’ Energy Fantasy Unravels As Reality Grips Wind & Solar Obsessed Europe

What’s dressed up as “progress” these days increasingly looks and sounds like a drift back to our Dark Age of misery, poverty and ignorance. Anyone who still thinks wind turbines and solar panels equate with Earthly salvation, is more than just a little confused. But that’s the very point and purpose of those pushing the […]

Why Weather-Dependent Wind & Solar Transition Will Inevitably Fail

Spoiler alert: the reason the wind and solar transition must fail is calm weather and sunset. So much, so simple and obvious. No country has ever powered itself entirely on wind and solar; no country ever will.  Anyone telling you otherwise, is either a lunatic or they’re in on the greatest economic and environmental fraud, […]

Sun Cult Exuberant Over Brief Moment When Solar Delivered: Then Came Sunset…

  The infantile mentality of the renewables cult is on vivid display when they crow about wind or solar adding something meaningful to the grid. Always brief and fleeting, the 60 minutes when solar or wind did something special, is always trumpeted as if no one else cares about their power needs for the other […]

Cold Consequence: Europe’s Wind & Solar Obsession Promises Very Bitter Winter Ahead

Germans are paying the price for their Green-Left government’s maniacal fixation on heavily subsidised and hopelessly intermittent wind and solar. Already suffering Europe’s highest power prices, with prices still on the ascendant, German bureaucrats have been reduced to rationing energy of all descriptions at the micro level, in a way not seen since its postwar […]
