Britain to Downgrade Renewables, Embrace Nuclear Power — Watts Up With That?

In the wake of Britain’s recent catastrophic wind drought, the Boris Johnson administration appears set to embrace nuclear power as their main strategy for achieving net zero.

Rotten Culture Club: Court Case Shows Wind Industry Fuelled By Subsidies, Lies & Deceit — STOP THESE THINGS

A Supreme Court wind turbine noise nuisance case has revealed a whole lot more than the wind industry would have liked. The case being pursued by farmers in the Victorian Supreme Court against the operator of the Bald Hills wind farm (see our post here) has already uncovered the fact that the wind farm operator’s […]

Nero Fiddles: China’s Nuclear Power Push Threatens Any Country Still Toying With Wind & Solar — STOP THESE THINGS

America’s retreat from Afghanistan has left the door wide open to an increasingly belligerent China. China takes itself very seriously on every front; whether it’s the question of military power or power, period. Building coal-fired power plants, hand over fist, the CCP couldn’t give a fig about CO2 emissions of the kind that have weather-warriors […]

Why ‘nuclear batteries’ offer a new approach to carbon-free energy — Tallbloke’s Talkshop

Credit: Massachusetts Institute of Technology ‘Plug and play’ nuclear power in a box, or container, is the basic idea. – – – We may be on the brink of a new paradigm for nuclear power, a group of nuclear specialists suggested recently in The Bridge, the journal of the National Academy of Engineering. TechXplore reporting. […]

Russian Resurgence: Putin’s Grand Plan to Meet Insatiable Demand for Coal in Asia

STOP THESE THINGS

As the wind and solar cult would have it, ‘coal is dead’ and wind and solar power are the gloating villains that killed it. Well, that’s the meme, anyway.

Back on Earth, coal-fired power and the coal industry that fuels it are in very robust health, indeed.

Outside of the virtue signalling Western nations that signed up to heavily subsidise the unreliables, demand for coal has never been stronger. And there are plenty of willing players eager to satisfy that demand.

Vladimir Putin is among them, with plans to increase, already surging, Russian coal production even further.

We’ll cross to the team at Jo Nova for the latest on coal’s Russian resurgence, and then we’ll take a look at the surge in global demand for coal, with the help of the Global Warming Policy Forum.

Russia bets big on coal, gas, fossil fuels, and not on renewables

Crushed: Wind & Solar Simply Can’t Compete with America’s Cheap & Ever Reliable Gas-Fired Power — STOP THESE THINGS

America’s abundant gas supplies mean gas-fired power is cheaper than wind and solar and, unlike that pathetic pair, it’s available 24 x 365, whatever the weather or time-of-day. The USA awash with cheap gas, thanks to the shale oil and gas revolution that started 20 years ago. With improving technology and numerous firms drilling for […]

Hearts of Darkness: Richest Nations Push Unreliable Renewables to Keep Africans Forever Poor — STOP THESE THINGS

There’s something altogether cynical about well-healed nations forcing the impoverished to embrace expensive and unreliable wind and solar. It is, of course, all done in the name of ‘saving the planet’. [Note to Ed: Not to mention saving the manufacturers of industrial wind turbines and solar panels, who are struggling back home]. As any economist […]

Setting It Straight: Nuclear Power Sets the Gold Standard For Safe & Reliable Power Generation — STOP THESE THINGS

The French get 85% of their power from nuclear plants and haven’t suffered so much as a scratch since they started in 1962. By contrast, the wind industry (which really only got off the ground in the late 1990s and still generates a trifling amount of electricity) has clocked up around 190 fatalities, so far (eg, […]

Cost-Effective ‘Renewable’ Energy Is Like Unobtanium: A Fictional Construct — STOP THESE THINGS

Wind power sits comfortably alongside Alchemy and perpetual motion machines: ideas that were both superficially attractive and utterly impossible. No country has ever powered itself entirely with wind power, and no country ever will. Putting aside their unreliability and chaotic intermittency, the amount of energy and resources that go into building a single wind turbine […]
