Reality Bites: ‘Transition’ to All Wind & Solar Powered Future Pure Fantasy



 

STOP THESE THINGS

Plenty of destructive ideas have been launched on the back of well-crafted propaganda campaigns. The wind and solar industries have used every trick in the PR book, turning pure fantasy into an all-too-real nightmare.

Where electricity was once an essential service, which governments went out of their way to insure was available to all-comers, heavily subsidised, weather dependent wind and solar have trashed that idea. Nowadays, governments of all persuasions have taken to educating the populous that they are ‘demand resources’ and subject to ‘demand management’. That is, unceremoniously chopping the power supply to households and businesses, whenever the sun sets or calm weather sets in.

Rocketing power prices have a more immediate and permanent effect – tens of thousands of Australian households can no longer afford electricity and have had their power cut off, completely: Australia’s Self-Inflicted Renewable Energy Crisis: 200,000 Families Can’t Afford Power

Wind & Solar Built On Endless Lies, Broken Promises & Massive Subsidies

STOP THESE THINGS

The greatest con job in history started with the idea that you can run an economy on sunshine and breezes.

Sequentially, inevitably, every myth and lie put forward by renewable energy rent seekers and their shrinking band of acolytes gets busted and exposed.

Lines like: wind power is cheaper than coal (it isn’t); the wind is always blowing somewhere (it isn’t); this wind farm will power 30,000 homes (it doesn’t and never will); and that the ‘transition’ to an all renewable energy future is simply inevitable (sure, provided it’s a transition to the Dark Ages that you’re looking for?) – sound even more nonsensical, by the day.

The example set by South Australia provides more than enough ammunition for those keen to hammer RE zealots.

As does this piece of analysis by Norman Rogers.

Temperature tampering temper tantrums — Watts Up With That?

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley Commenters on my recent threads explaining the gaping error my team has found in official climatology’s definition of “temperature feedback” have asked whether I will update my series pointing out the discrepancy between the overblown predictions in IPCC’s First Assessment Report of 1990 on which the climate scam was based…

Insane $Trillion Cost Means Mega-Batteries Won’t Save Chaotically Delivered Wind & Solar — STOP THESE THINGS

It didn’t take power punters long to work out that wind power will never amount to a meaningful power generation source. Graphs like the one above – depicting the entire output of every wind turbine connected to Australia’s Eastern Grid (1,800 of them with a capacity of just under 5,000MW, spread across four states, NSW, […]

Germany’s Renewable Energy Disaster – Part 3: Wind & Solar Deemed ‘Economic Nonsense’

STOP THESE THINGS

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle.

German power prices have rocketedblackouts and load shedding are the norm; and once bucolic farmland has been turned into industrial wastelands (see above).

Hundreds of billions of euros have been squandered on subsidies to wind and solar, all in an effort to reduce carbon dioxide gas emissions. However, that objective has failed too: CO2 emissions continue to rise.

But you wouldn’t know it from what appears in the mainstream media. Its reticence to report on what’s actually going on in Germany probably stems from the adage about success having many fathers, and failure being an orphan. Having promoted Germany as the example of how we could all ‘transition’ to an all RE future, it’s pretty hard for them to suck it up and acknowledge that they were taken…

How ‘Green’ is Wind Power: Offshore Wind Farms Killing Whales

STOP THESE THINGS

One her way to be ‘saved’ by the wind industry…

***

Energy generation systems of all descriptions take their toll, but only one of them claims moral superiority over all others. That increasingly tenuous claim rests on the ‘we’re saving the planet’ mantra – chanted by the wind cult around the Globe.

Not for the first time, and not for the last time, wind turbine noise and vibration has clocked up Cetacean fatalities, messing with whale’s sonar guidance and communication systems: Wind Turbine Noise Terrorising Whales

Here’s how offshore wind farms in Britain are doing their bit for the environment.

Germany’s Renewable Energy Disaster – Part 2: Wind & Solar Deemed ‘Ecological Disasters’

STOP THESE THINGS

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle.

German power prices have rocketedblackouts and load shedding are the norm; and its idyllic countryside has been turned into an industrial wasteland, with its forests, no exception (see above).

End of Days: Wind Industry Faces Armageddon in Ontario as New Government Scraps Hundreds of Planned Projects

STOP THESE THINGS

Stray dogs disappear when you stop feeding them: wind power outfits evaporate as soon as governments slash the mandates, targets and subsidies that nourish them.

Back in June, the Progressive Conservatives snatched power from an arrogant and out-of-touch Liberal government, that was headed up by the malevolent Kathleen Wynne.

One of their first moves was to cancel hundreds of renewable energy contracts, in an effort to return affordable power to their constituents. Here’s the Press Release that detailed the End of Days for big wind in Ontario.

Ontario to Cancel Energy Contracts to Bring Hydro Bills Down
Keeping election promise will save $790 million to help lower electricity bills

TORONTO – Ontario ratepayers will benefit from $790 million in savings thanks to the Government of Ontario’s decision to cancel and wind down 758 renewable energy contracts, Minister of…
