Hollow Promises: Thousands of ‘Green’ Jobs Disappear With Turbine Blade Maker’s Total Flop

It takes a special brand of delusion to swallow the wind industry’s promise of an endless stream of meaningful employment. Whether you call it a ‘Green New Deal’ or a ‘Great Green Reset’, the promised boom in well-paid and lasting employment turns out to be little more than hot air. Increase power prices, as with […]

Promises, Promises: Wind Industry Insiders Moan About Mass Layoffs & Even Larger Losses

In the absence of massive subsidies, there would be no wind or solar ‘industries’, so-called. So, it should come as no surprise that the jobs “created” in association with those industries are an easy come, easy go, kind of affair. The promise of thousands of jobs building wind turbines and solar panels is a renewable energy […]

Subsidy Cuts Mean Wind Turbine Makers Face Miserable & Uncertain Future

The wind industry was built on lies and runs on subsidies; cut the subsidies and the whole thing collapses in a heartbeat. Wind turbine makers like Germany’s Siemens are having a rather miserable time of it, of late. Subsidies were already being wound back across Europe (and with it demand for these whirling wonders) when […]

All Wind & Promises: New US Study Reveals Another Great ‘Green’ Jobs Hoax

The rocketing power prices caused by subsidised wind and solar have destroyed thousands of jobs in manufacturing and mineral processing, for starters. But, retorts the renewable energy rent seeker, think of all the green jobs ‘created’ by the wind and solar industries. Whether you call it a ‘Green New Deal’ or a ‘Great Green Reset’, […]

Wind Industry Jobs Myth Turning Britain Into Venezuelan Economic Basket Case

The ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future comes with a promise of an endless sea of ‘groovy’ sustainable jobs in the manufacture of solar panels and wind turbines and much more, besides. However, across the globe, the great ‘green’ jobs ‘bonanza’ is being revealed for the hoax that it truly is. […]

Scotland’s ‘Green’ Jobs Revolution Implodes: Wind Turbine Manufacturer Sacks Hundreds

A job that depends on subsidies, isn’t really a job, at all, it’s a make-work scheme cooked up by closet socialists. And, so it is, with the so-called “green jobs” that self-evidently exist, and only exist, while the renewable energy subsidies keep flowing. There is no natural market for intermittent wind or solar power, because […]

Renewable Energy Job Myth: Subsidised Wind and Solar Destroy Far More Jobs Than They Ever ‘Create’

The principles of economics are not hard, nor are they a mystery. Jobs require viable businesses, viable businesses require cheap and reliable electricity. Deprive businesses of cheap and reliable power and those businesses will very soon cease to exist. Those truisms, however, continue to fall on deaf ears in Australia’s so-called ‘wind power capital’, South […]

Jobs Freeze: America’s Wind & Solar ‘Industries’ Crushed By COVID-19 – 100,000 Sacked

So-called ‘green’ jobs are a case of easy come, easy go. The wind and solar ‘industries’ that gave birth to those jobs simply can’t survive without massive and endless subsidies, which means their days are numbered. With the axe being taken to subsidies across the globe, their ultimate demise is a matter of when, not […]

Wind Power Investment Collapses as Germany’s Wind Industry Faces Total Armageddon

Once a world ‘leader’, Germany’s wind industry is on the brink of total collapse; new construction has ceased, and bankrupt turbine makers are sacking thousands of workers. Limit your worldview to the mainstream press and you’d be forgiven for thinking Germany is well on its way to an all wind and sun powered future, and […]

It’s-A-Knockout: European Wind Industry’s Total Collapse: Firms Bankrupt & Thousands Sacked

The wholesale collapse of Europe’s wind industry suggests that so-called ‘sustainable’ energy ain’t so sustainable, after all. Big turbine manufacturers are sacking workers in droves, watching their share prices plummet and pulling out all stops to stave off bankruptcy. Accumulating hundreds of €millions in losses, turbine maker Senvion entered into self-administered bankruptcy/liquidation in April. Danish […]
