How Cynical Elites Have Wrecked Energy Supplies & Ruined Your Economic Future

The attack on our reliable and affordable energy supplies is part treason and part act of war. Internal forces openly conspire to promote the interests of crony capitalists at the expense of the ambitious working class. External forces do the same, but at a grandstanding global level, pressuring and shaming any national government with the […]

Renewable Energy Delusion: Counting Staggering Cost of Wind & Solar Obsession

The notion that we’ll soon be exclusively powered by wind and solar is an appalling delusion, but one which comes with a staggering price tag. Sure, the wind and sun are free, but attempting to rely upon chaotically generated wind and solar power is an altogether different prospect. Adding wind turbines and solar panels to […]

Totally Torched: Low-Cost Offshore Wind Power Claims Go Up In Smoke

Europe’s great wind drought continues, unabated. Adding to the wind industry’s woes, its claims that offshore wind power is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time have been totally torched – again. Over the last two years, Andrew Montford has been keeping a close eye on the financial reports produced by the UK’s offshore wind […]

Goodbye Glasgow – Hello Energy Poverty: The Staggering True Cost of Wind & Solar

If the Climate Industrial Complex gets its way, kiss goodbye to reliable and affordable energy. The apparent answer all our woes is more of the same: endless subsidies to hopelessly chaotic wind and solar, with even greater subsidies to pie-in-the-sky ‘green’ hydrogen and insanely expensive giant lithium batteries. If you’re not already suffering the consequences […]

Renewables Rip-off: ‘Free’ Offshore Wind Power Costs Six Times the Average Cost of Power in USA

Americans are fast learning that the cost of wind power is staggering, and the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. Joe Biden and his Squad are eager to plant thousands of these things up and down the Atlantic coast, claiming that offshore wind power is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time. It’s a […]

Offshore Wind Power All at Sea: Danish Wind Farm Operator Suffers Massive Financial Losses

Apart from literally burning cash, there is no faster way to squander money than by piling it into an offshore wind power project. It’s hardly news that the true cost of generating electricity using wind power is staggering; the cost of doing so offshore is astronomical. Instead of producing ‘free’ energy with purportedly ‘endless’ sea breezes, offshore […]

Hide & Seek: The Staggering Cost of Offshore Wind Power Revealed

Renewable energy rent seekers and their propagandists are diligent in their efforts to hide the true costs of wind power from the punters. Their smoke and mirrors ‘accounting’ religiously ignores the cost of providing power from a meaningful source, whenever calm weather sets in. And their ‘wind power is cheapest of all’ claims always gloss […]

Simply Staggering: What Weather Dependent Wind & Solar Really Costs

Assume, for the moment, the wind always blew and the sun always shone, then wind and solar power just might make sense. That’s why those talking about an ‘all wind and sun powered future’ sound like they’re coming from another planet. Renewables rent seekers keep telling us how cheap wind and solar are, compared to […]

How Long Do Wind Turbines Last? 10 Years or Until The Subsidies Run Out (Whichever Occurs First)

Wind power outfits still claim their turbines run on the smell of an oily rag and last for 25 years or more, needing little more than a hug from time to time. However, the operations and maintenance cost of these things, as reported by Australia’s Infigen, is around $25 per MWh (hardly the zero marginal […]

Daylight Robbery: UK Wind Farms Paid £9.3million To Shut Down Their Turbines For A Single Day

In the history of commerce, there’s never been a financial scam that comes anywhere near rivalling subsidised wind power. In the past, sharp, entrepreneurial types have made plenty of easy money from ‘selling’ the London Bridge and the Eiffel Tower to unwitting dupes. But scamming fools with too good to be true offers is nothing […]
