Power Shock: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Sends German Power Prices Into Orbit

STOP THESE THINGS

Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie, as does Denmark and South Australia, which each jockey for line honours in the world’s highest power prices stakes.

No country has squandered more treasure on giant windmills and an endless sea of solar panels than Germany.

For all that wanton environmental destruction, Germans get a meagre 2.5% of their primary energy demand satisfied by wind and solar. And in the mother of all ironies, contrary to the stated aim of the ‘Energiewende’, carbon dioxide emissions continue to rise.

Its nuclear-powered, next-door neighbour, France wins the low CO2 power generation competition by a mile – and makes a killing selling electricity to power-starved Germans, whenever the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in.

All in all, Germany’s (apparently) inevitable ‘transition’ to an all wind and…

Ripping Yarns: Wind & Sun Can’t Power the World: Never Have & Never Will

STOP THESE THINGS

You know we’ve reached peak stupid when adults line up to be lectured by troubled teenage girls on energy and world economics. Greta the Fretter and the lunatics gluing themselves to roads under the banner of the Extinction Rebellion have made the work of the sane and rational so much easier. For a decade or so, the great mass in the middle have mouthed platitudes about doing more for the planet and supporting renewable energy.

The profiteers and rent seekers who’ve done so very nicely over that time, soaking in subsidies, lapping up soft loans and benefiting from tax credits, RETs and the like, pushed and prodded politicians to the extent necessary to establish the greatest financial rort of all time; and the general populace went along with it.

Clever marketing and guilt laden propaganda helped pushed the right emotional buttons and left rent seekers thinking that their world would…

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
