Party’s Over: Unreliable Wind & Solar Ditched In Favour of Ever-Reliable Nuclear & Gas

Once the belles of the ball, wind and solar are being treated like cheap tarts: now it’s nuclear and gas that are attracting all the attention. And it’s all thanks to the massive wind drought – aka the Big Calm – that struck Western Europe in September, and lasted for weeks, sending gas and power […]

Post-Renewables Reality: Nuclear Power Generation Easy Solution For Energy Starved World

Europe’s great wind drought has focused attention on the unassailable fact that wind power is an utterly meaningless power source. The demand for electricity is, always and everywhere, a ‘here and now’ kind of thing. Households and businesses couldn’t care less if there’s a roaring gale and plenty of wind power at 2 in the […]

Climate Short-Changed: Big Calm Heralds Britain’s Renewable Energy Crunch

Appears the climate doomsayers were right: the ‘Big Calm’ has struck Britain and Western Europe – slashing wind power output, without relent. Far from being the panacea for a changing climate, wind power generation is now, apparently, a victim. Over the last few months, wind power output has thoroughly collapsed in Germany, across Western Europe […]

Wind & Solar Suicide Squad’s Deliberate Destruction Of Europe’s Power Supply

If the wind and solar rent-seekers destroying our power supplies know what they’re doing, it’s criminal; if they don’t, it’s still criminal. However, the penalty is not borne by them, but by you and me. Where the premise for part-time power is said to be a looming climate ‘catastrophe’, it’s the power supply catastrophe that […]

Big Freeze Failures: Time to Put Intermittent Subsidised Wind Power On Ice Forever

Intermittent wind power doesn’t make any sense: never has, never will. A power generation source that can’t be cranked up to meet demand and which repeatedly fails to deliver when demand soars – eg freezing, dead-calm weather and 42°C breathless days and nights – doesn’t count as a power source, at all. A decade or […]

Energy Unplugged: Government Plans to Cut Your Power Whenever Wind & Solar Output Collapses

Visit the Third World and you’ll quickly understand the importance of having power as and when you need it. In the Western World, an obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar will save you the trip. Wind and solar ‘powered’ South Australians and Californians know all about Third World power supplies – with routine rationing, […]
