When The Wind Don’t Blow, The Lights Don’t Glow!

As a prelude to the latest South Australian wind-energy debacle, here are a few quotes about so-called “renewable energy” from individuals and a corporation whose ‘global warmist’ credentials are well-known :

Warren Buffett on wind-power : “We get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That’s the only reason to build them. They don’t make sense without the tax credit.”

The Godfather of global warming alarmism and former NASA climate chief turned environmental activist, James Hansen, on ‘unreliable’ energy: “Suggesting that renewables will let us phase rapidly off fossil fuels in the United States, China, India, or the world as a whole is almost the equivalent of believing in the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy.”

Top Google engineersRenewable energy technologies simply won’t work; we need a fundamentally different approach.”

Following on from South Australia’s statewide blackout in September, making it an international joke no less, comes the latest #SAblackout all due thanks to their moral obsession with weather dependent wind energy…

South Australia gets disconnected from the national electricity grid, meaning it must rely on its own electricity – including all that expensive wind power it boasts about. 

Result: blackouts affecting 200,000 people.

ABOUT 200,000 people experienced power outages overnight after South Australia disconnected from the national electricity network.

The Australian Energy Market Regulator said South Australia disconnected from the national network at 12.16am on Thursday but remained operating as a separate entity.

And that’s after the state-wide blackout caused when six wind farms could not handle a storm and tripped out.
