The Big ‘Green’ Lie: Why We’ll Never, Ever Be 100% Powered By Wind & Solar Power

The wind and solar acolyte in their more delusional moments readily proclaims that an all-wind and sun-powered future is upon us.  Never mind sunset; never mind dead calm weather; and never mind the fact that the idea that giant lithium-ion batteries economically storing wind and solar power at grid-scale is pure hokum – for the […]

Total Flop: Nothing ‘Inevitable’ About So-called ‘Transition’ to Wind & Solar

A mixture of wishful thinking and childish pipedreams, there’s nothing inevitable about the so-called ‘transition’ to wind and solar – Sunset remains a fixed feature of daily life, as does stubbornly calm weather. But the acolyte and rent seeker would have us believe that these natural phenomena are either trivial obstacles to be overcome – […]

Powering Down: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Mean End of Reliable & Affordable Power

Once upon a time, governments strived to ensure their citizens had access to reliable and affordable electricity. That was then. This is now. A cabal of wind and solar rent-seekers and their political enablers are determined to control every aspect of your daily life, by preventing you from having electricity, as and when you need […]

Dead End Street: There’s No High-Tech Fix For Wind & Solar’s Hopeless Intermittency

Europe’s obsession with intermittent wind and solar has left it exposed to an ambitious Russian who controls the oil and gas on which Europe critically depends. As Vlad’s Ukrainian adventure bogs down among shattered tanks and morale, his threat to chop oil and gas supplies to Europe increases, revealing just how dependent Europe has become […]

Destination Devolution: The ‘Green’ Industrial Revolution – A Monstrous Marxist Lie

Believe that we can run on nothing but sunshine and breezes, then you’ll believe anything. No country has ever run itself on wind and solar power, alone. No country ever will. Even mythical mega-batteries can’t change that equation. Only the truly delusional believe that we can eradicate our reliance upon fossil fuels of all descriptions, […]

Self-Inflicted Energy Insecurity: Vlad Impales Wind & Solar Obsessed Europe

Like a giant boa constrictor, oil and gas-rich Vlad Putin has a chokehold on wind and solar-obsessed Europe. ‘Green’ policies designed to wipe out reliable and affordable coal and nuclear power plants – on the pretext that they would be replaced by the chaotic output from wind turbines and solar panels – have long been […]

Dumb & Dumber: Germany Wins Prize For World’s Most Idiotic Energy Policy

Germany set the gold standard for idiotic renewable energy policies, although the Brits, Californians, Texans and South Australians are keen contenders for that glittering prize. Thanks to its unhinged obsession with intermittent wind and solar, Germans are in the midst of a power pricing and supply calamity. Suffering Europe’s highest power prices, is just the […]

Coal Saves Germany (Again): Weather Conspires to Cut Annual Wind Power Production by 25%

Germany’s inevitable transition to wind and solar, ain’t so inevitable, after all. Coal-fired power plants have been urgently press-ganged back into action, as the weather conspires to drive wind power output through the floor. Inherently unreliable, wind power has never powered any serious economy; and never will. The problem with relying upon the weather for […]

German Hi-Tech Firms Driven Offshore By Unaffordable & Unreliable Renewable Energy

‘Net zero’ is precisely the number of meaningful jobs that’ll be left after our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future. Looking for an example? Look no further than the wind and solar acolyte’s pinup girl, Germany. Notwithstanding billions of euros in subsidies, courageous mandates and punitive targets, its Energiewende has failed […]

Banquet of Consequences: Time to Force Wind & Solar Worshippers to Rely Exclusively on Sunshine & Breezes

Anyone railing against nuclear, coal or gas-fired power hasn’t been forced to rely exclusively on hopelessly unreliable wind and solar. The anti-fossil fuel crowd are, of course, hypocritical and the anti-CO2/anti-nuclear mob are the most hypocritical of all. For those claiming they’re quite happy to do without coal and gas, wait till one of their […]
