Fossil Fuelled Future: How On Earth Do They Expect Wind & Sunbeams To Power Us?

In their sillier moments, renewable energy zealots pontificate about the end of fossil fuels, to be inevitably replaced by wind and solar (albeit, these days with the addition of $trillions worth of mythical mega-batteries). No country has ever powered itself on wind and solar alone; no country ever will. Instead, modern economies will continue to […]

Fact Check: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Will Never Replace Fossil Fuels

The wind and solar ‘industries’ were built on lies and run on subsidies. As to the former, for more than 20 years a phalanx of propagandists has worked overtime to literally turn night into day. Lines like the ‘wind is always blowing somewhere’, ‘sunset’s not a problem’, this ‘wind farm will power XXX hundred thousand […]

BP’s ‘Green’ Hypocrisy: Why Big Oil Promotes Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar

Remember all that talk a few years back about wind and solar replacing fossil fuels, forever? No? That’s because they can’t, and never will. Sunset and calm weather mean wind and solar can and will never replace conventional power generators. By ‘conventional’ we mean coal, gas, nuclear and, where geography and geology permit, stored hydro […]

Europe’s Fossil-Fuelled Future: Winter Wind & Solar Collapse Means Coal & Gas Here to Stay

  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, the Industrial […]

World’s Most Expensive Joke: $2 Trillion Squandered on Wind & Solar (So Far)…

The point, if there was one, of throwing hundreds of $billions in subsidies at wind and solar was to slash emissions of carbon dioxide gas. Taxpayers and power consumers who are on the receiving end of the bill for all this environmental piety would, after almost 20 years, be entitled to ask just how much […]

US Judge Delivers Verdict: Intermittent Renewables Will Never Replace Coal, Gas & Nuclear

  A class of miserable human-haters detests the idea that energy should be freely available, to all. Instead, they go out of their way to promote costly, unreliable and intermittent wind and solar: a pair that will only ever deliver power at the margins; which depend upon massive, never-ending subsidies; cost a fortune to deliver; […]

No ‘Comparison’ Between Part-time Wind Power & Full-time Fossil Fuel

Renewables rent seekers keep telling us how cheap wind and solar are, compared to those ‘evil’ fossil fuels, coal and gas. But ‘price’ and ‘value’ are not the same animals. What we pay for something, and what it’s worth depends entirely upon what we get. And, in relation to the consumption of electricity, whether or […]
