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, […]

  Among their deluded repertoire of mantras, wind and sun worshippers cite the ‘death of coal’ (and all fossil fuels) as an article of faith. We’re repeatedly bombarded in the mainstream press about how sunshine and breezes (nature’s wonder fuels) will soon replace conventional fossil-fuelled electricity generators, altogether.

Open Competition: What the Wind Industry Fears Most

**** Among the myriad fictions spread by the lunatics that spruik for the wind industry, is the claim that wind power is not only competitive with conventional power generation sources, it’s actually cheaper than the cheapest of them all: coal – see this ruin-economy piece for a trip to Alice’s world of make-believe. Coal-fired plant […]

The Fossil Fuel-Free Fantasy: Robert Bryce Hammers Harvard’s Human-Hating Ecofascist Hit Squad

**** Robert Bryce picked the wind power fraud for what it is from the very beginning. In his 2010 book “Power Hungry: The Myths of “Green” Energy and the Real Fuels of the Future” (Public Affairs), Bryce skewered every one of the myths relied upon by the wind industry to peddle its wares; and went […]
