New Dark Age: Wind & Solar Transition to State-wide Blackouts & Unaffordable Power Prices

Renewable energy rent-seekers and politicos have been gripped by a sense of palpable panic: the mob won’t tolerate blackouts for very long, and repeated power rationing will have the same incendiary effect on public sentiment. The destruction of reliable and affordable power supplies caused by chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar was perfectly […]

Blackout Nation: Australians Latest Victims of Subsidised Wind & Solar Chaos

That Australia’s Eastern Grid is on the brink of collapse with a complete ‘system black’ on the cards comes as no surprise. The $7 billion in annual RET subsidies pocketed by wind and solar generators were designed to allow them to underbid Australia’s reliable and affordable coal-fired generators, destroying their profitability and, ultimately, driving them […]

Blackout Blame Shifting: Wind & Solar Collapses Responsible For Unplanned Power Outages

Wind and solar generators happily take credit when the sun’s up and the wind’s blowing, but dodge all criticism when blackouts follow sunset and/or calm weather. The standard trick is to point in every direction – except the obvious – when power rationing (euphemistically called “demand management”) or unplanned power rationing (aka widespread blackouts) follows […]

Wind Farms Keep Being Wiped Out By Wild Weather: Tornadoes and Turbines Don’t Mix

  These things are meant to save us from a changing climate but, when the weather turns wild, they can barely save themselves. 50-60m long blades, weighing in at 20 tonnes each, are usually the first item to be shredded and thrown in all directions (the wind industry uses the neutral term “component liberation”). Then, […]

Continued Reliance On Wind & Solar Leaves Texans Vulnerable to More Mass Blackouts

Total collapses in wind and solar output during last year’s big freeze meant that hundreds of Texans froze to death. 12 months on and, apparently, little’s been learnt. During America’s big freeze last February, wind turbines were frozen solid across Texas and breathless frigid conditions that meant the remainder delivered no power, in any event. […]

China & Russia Profit From West’s Ludicrous Obsession With Unreliable Wind and Solar

As Germany scrambles to secure the gas needed to prevent their wind and solar ‘powered’ grid from total collapse, Vladimir Putin is laughing all the way to the bank. And the Russians aren’t the only ones profiting from the West’s maniacal obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar. China – with plenty of unwilling assistance […]

Brace For Blackouts: World’s Reliance On Unreliable Wind & Solar Spells Energy Disaster

Topping the list of things that seemed like a good idea at the time sits wind and solar power. What, with the energy sources that drive them free and natural; with no visible emissions of spent gas or fumes; with their shiny panels harvesting the sun’s rays and delivering electricity for five or six hours […]

Let Them Freeze: Wind & Solar Generators Couldn’t Care Less About Your Welfare

The wind and solar industries couldn’t care less whether you freeze to death when winter bites across the northern hemisphere and wind and solar output collapse. Solar panels plastered in snow and ice produce nothing; wind turbines frozen solid during breathless, frigid weather produce even less (they actually consume power from the grid to run […]

Green New Deal Gamble: Democrats Playing Russian Roulette With America’s Energy Future

Across the globe, the quest for wind and solar power domination has taken on all the menace of a friendly round of Russian roulette. The front runners in the USA, California and Texas, have already experienced life-threatening wind and solar output collapses; during statewide heatwaves in the former, and during last February’s Big Freeze, in […]

Subsidised Suicide: 2021 Revealed Wind & Solar To Be Unreliable & Utterly Useless

Wind and solar are said to be ‘cheap’, but then so’s talk. 2021 was the year when wind and solar were revealed to be thoroughly useless, thanks to their inherent intermittency and general lack of reliability. Starting in September last year, for months on end, Europe’s wind power fleet struggle to produce any consistent power […]
