Energy Matters: Why Wind & Solar Make Trivial Contribution to World’s Energy Needs

Notwithstanding the $billions in subsidies directed to wind and solar, their joint contribution to energy demand amounts to little more than a rounding error. Oil and gas still account for more than 80% of world energy demand and talk about an ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future, remains just that. Energy […]

Irony Alert: Britain’s Coal Power Plants Outperform Wind Power During “UK Wind Week”!

  The British are masters of irony. Fitting then that during what was declared as ‘UK Wind Week’ its wind power output was utterly risible. Fitting too that it follows Boris ‘Bonkers’ Johnson’s announcement that he plans to run Britain entirely on breezes by the end of the decade. In an apparent contest of one-upmanship, […]

Total Flop: 20 years & $60 Billion in Subsidies, Wind & Solar ‘Deliver’ Risible 7% of Australia’s Power Demand

The line that Australia’s rocketing power prices will soon plummet is just a cruel hoax. The subsidies for large-scale wind and solar under the Federal government’s Large-Scale RET will total more than $60 billion over the life of that scheme: the Renewable Energy Certificates issued under the LRET have already added more than $18 billion […]

Total Flop: After 30 Years & Massive Subsidies, Wind & Solar Satisfies 1.1% of Global Energy Demand

The idea that one day soon we’ll all be powered by sunshine and breezes is infantile nonsense. No modern economy has ever powered itself entirely with wind and solar power. Still, we’re continually berated with the notion that our ‘transition’ to all wind and sun powered future is ‘inevitable’. Step back for a moment and […]

Wind & Solar’s Mega-Cost Delivers Mega-Failure: RE Supplying Less than 1% During Peak Demand

If you live in Australia, and you’re reading this post, you’re doing so thanks to coal. If you don’t like it, shut your device down now. The electricity that’s powering it, your home, the internet, etc, etc isn’t coming from sunshine and breezes. It’s coming from a coal-fired power plant. So, deal with it! Over […]

Long Way to Run: Fossil Fuel Powers the World Now & For Generations to Come

  The zealots that pump up the future for wind and solar power are programed to ignore the present and bound to ignore the past. For a few centuries in human history, windmills were the only game in town. Then, in the 18th Century, the captains of British scientific and engineering endeavour harnessed thermal power, […]

In the Post Truth World Wind is Already ‘Powering’ the Globe for Free

The experts lie about renewable energy Herald Sun Terry McCrann 29 November 2016 THE first and most important thing to understand about global warming true believers and the pushers of so-called “renewable energy” is that they lie. They lie effortlessly, seamlessly, continuously and without the slightest sense of shame. They lie deliberately and carelessly and […]
