Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Are The World’s Most Expensive (Occasional) Power Sources

STOP THESE THINGS

The Sun and wind might be free, but wind and solar power are by far the most expensive power sources, of them all.

Diffuse and dilute – entirely dependent on the weather (wind – in the case of wind power, and cloud cover in the case of solar) and, in solar’s case, where the Sun sits in the sky – every MW of wind or solar capacity has to be backed up by a MW of reliable, dispatchable capacity, from either coal, gas or nuclear power (and hydro where that might be available).

Over the years, renewable energy rent seekers have attempted to paint a very different picture; viz, by claiming that wind and solar are ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time. The accounting tricks employed are fairly obvious for those with the faintest idea about how electricity is generated and distributed.

Donn Dears is one such character. Here…

Rumpole BBC Complete

Rumpole of the Bailey is a radio series created and written by the British writer and barrister John Mortimer based on the television series Rumpole of the Bailey. Five different actors portrayed Horace Rumpole in these episodes: Leo McKern, Maurice Denham, Timothy West, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Julian Rhind-Tutt.

His skill at defending his clients is legendary among the criminal classes. The Timson clan of “minor villains” (primarily thieves) regularly rely on Rumpole to get them out of their latest bit of trouble with the law. Rumpole is proud of his successful handling of the Penge Bungalow Murders “alone and without a leader” (that is, as a “junior” barrister without a QC) early in his career and of his extensive knowledge of bloodstains and typewriters. Cross-examination is one of his favourite activities, and he disdains barristers who lack either the skill or courage to ask the right questions. His…

Luxon and the media

Barrie Saunders

My good friend journalist Karl du Fresne, took the media to task last week for its aggressive attacks on Christopher Luxon regarding his Christian faith, the abortion issue and his property ownership. (karldufresne.blogspot.com)

You might have thought that media would have wanted to know more about Luxon’s views on how to deal with Covid, poverty and the related housing crisis, crime, education standards and current levels of school attendance, to say nothing of how to create a cohesive caucus, given the recent fractious history of the National Party and leadership changes.

I doubt Luxon was optimistic this would be the case and he didn’t get it. The sad reality is many in the Parliamentary Press Gallery are left-wing and not committed to balanced journalism. Not surprising really. The Wellington Central electorate got more Green Party votes in the last election than any other electorate. We know also from political research…

“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.
