The wind industry’s efforts to destroy America’s rural communities have been brought to a shuddering halt. Across the States, well-organised pro-community and pro-reliable energy groups have won victory after victory, sending crony capitalists and subsidy-seeking carpetbaggers packing. That hard-working farmers and rural folk would reject the pitch that 600-700 foot high wind turbines and endless […]No ‘Green’ New Deal: Rural America Rejects Wind Industry’s Community Wrecking Agenda — STOP THESE THINGS
Rent-seekers would have it that giant lithium-ion batteries are the simple answer to wind and solar’s hopeless intermittency, but that notion doesn’t stand first contact with the wind and solar industry’s nemesis: arithmetic. The wishful claim that we’ll all soon be powered by nothing but wind and solar is, of course, utter nonsense. And, as […]Numbers Game: Smashing The Wind & Solar Power Storage Myth With Arithmetic — STOP THESE THINGS
Meeting the European Union’s Green Deal goal of climate neutrality by 2050 will require 35 times more lithium and 7 to 26 times the amount of increasingly scarce rare earth metals compared to Europe’s limited use today, according to a study from Belgian university KU Leuven.Study quantifies metal supplies needed to reach EU’s climate neutrality goal — Watts Up With That?
Keen to survive when dead-calm, freezing weather sets in? You’d better have access to nuclear or fossil-fuelled power sources, simply because wind and solar generators are bound to deliver absolutely nothing, at all. Texans and Germans know all about it. Now, Canadians are getting a taste of what it is when you pin your daily […]Worthless Wind & Solar: Once Again Output Totally Collapses During Freezing Weather — STOP THESE THINGS
Germany’s government has not only taken a wrecking ball to the nation in terms of COVID, but also to its biodiversity in its self-deluded bid to protect the climate.Green Wrecking Ball: Germany Clearing “Undisturbed” 1000-Year Old Forest, Make Way For Massive Wind Park — Watts Up With That?
By Paul Homewood More evidence that offshore wind will cost much more then claimed. From Net Zero Watch: London, 28 October – New data confirms that offshore windfarm costs remain at very high levels, having only fallen slightly in recent years. Net Zero Watch has compiled the audited accounts of every […]New Data Refutes Cheap Offshore Wind Claims — NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW 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.Britain to Downgrade Renewables, Embrace Nuclear Power — Watts Up With That?
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 […]Rotten Culture Club: Court Case Shows Wind Industry Fuelled By Subsidies, Lies & Deceit — 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 […]Nero Fiddles: China’s Nuclear Power Push Threatens Any Country Still Toying With Wind & Solar — 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 […]
