Planet Saving Power: Nuclear Power Cleanest & Safest Form of Energy on Earth

The fact that very few climate warriors are out there seriously promoting nuclear power, speaks volumes about what’s really driving them. If CO2 really was about to destroy the planet, these characters would be talking about nothing else but nuclear power, and how to deliver it to all and sundry. Instead, for reasons that escape […]

Turbine Terror: Truckers Face Life & Death Transporting Giant 60m Wind Turbine Blades

With wind turbine blades pushing 60 metres (197 feet) and weighing in at up to 20 tonnes, those that transport them for a living are dicing with death, on a daily basis. So far, the wind industry has clocked up 195 fatalities: 122 were wind industry and direct support workers (divers, construction, maintenance, engineers, etc), […]

Energy Essentials: Clean, Safe & Ever Reliable Nuclear Is The Obvious Choice

The well-worn meme about the dangers of nuclear power doesn’t stand first contact with reality. As Katie Tub details below, nuclear power not only delivers a reliable and affordable stream of electrons, it does so in a manner that’s a whole lot safer than anything else humans engage in. Katie tallies up the tiny number […]

Menace to Society: Costly, Chaotic Wind Power Delivers Nothing But Community Division & Bird & Bat Carnage

Anyone looking for reasons to hate wind power, is spoiled for choice. Heavily subsidised, chaotically intermittent and an environmental nightmare, there’s a veritable smorgasbord of arguments against returning to the Dark Ages. A time when daily life was dictated by the seasons and the weather. The reason that human beings developed, harnessed and perfected thermal […]

Top Secret Turmoil: Wind Industry Covering Up Catastrophic 300 Tonne Wind Turbine Collapses

While massive subsidies fuel the wind industry, self-generated myth and polished propaganda just grease the wheels. For wind industry spin-kings, one pesky problem that won’t go away is the routine and catastrophic collapses of these 300 tonne whirling wonders. Over the last few years, there have been hundreds of ‘structural failures’ – where either 10-15 […]

Wind & Solar Reality Check: Why Intermittent & Unreliable Renewables Can’t Save the Planet

There’s only one problem with intermittent wind and solar, at scale they’ve never worked and never will. Sure, powering an isolated farm house or pumping water for livestock with a few solar panels makes practical and economic sense. But that’s not what’s being rammed down our throats, and massively subsidised at our expense, at the […]

What’s Not to Like about Wind Power? – Wind Turbine Pyrotechnics & Fatal Flops

Wind power is, as we’re repeatedly told, ‘clean’, ‘green’ and ‘free’. But, ever keen to rain on the wind industry’s parade, here’s a couple of pieces that point out one or more inconvenient truths. As with the picture above, of a turbine self-immolating in Texas (see our post here) – the first concerns the habit […]

Wind Industry Claims Another Ag-Pilot: Minnesota Crop-Duster Killed in Action

Is there anything to say in favour of these things? Not only insanely expensive and utterly pointless at every level, they pose a mortal danger to both man and beast. In the 20 years or so since they’ve spun into heavily subsidised ‘action’, the wind industry’s has managed to clock up a fairly sizeable death […]

Wind Power: Dangerous, Expensive, Pointless, Bird, Bat & Community Killer

Producing power with NO commercial value (save the massive taxpayer/power consumer subsidies it attracts); at a cost 3-4 times that of the reliable and secure stuff; spontaneously bursting into flame, throwing 10 tonne blades to the four winds or crashing to Earth in fits of vertical surrender, and along the way prematurely taking more than […]

Wind Turbine Terror: Spanish Home Hit by Flying Blade – Just 1 of 3,800 Blade ‘Fails’ Every Year

**** The number of cases involving collapsing turbines and flying blades (aka “component liberation”) has become so common that, if we were a tad cynical, we would go so far to suggest the possibility of some kind of pattern, along the lines proffered by Mr Bond’s nemesis, Goldfinger: “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three […]
