“…for the last month, solar power has been running at a tiny 4% of its capacity, with many days well below this.”
Unreliables. Enough said.
By Paul Homewood
Wait till the Health & Safety Stasi see this!
The renewable lobby would like you to believe that solar power is an important part of our future energy strategy.
But they don’t tell you just how little power is produced during winter months, at the time when demand is at its peak.

“Let’s hope other scenic but corrupted areas take up the baton to get more of these ridiculous industrial eyesores removed from our natural environment.”
The uselessness of symbolic fake fixes to a fake catastrophe finally being found out.

Let’s hope other scenic but corrupted areas take up the baton to get more of these ridiculous industrial eyesores removed from our natural environment.
A dozen 140ft wind turbines on the edge of the Lake District are due to be dismantled next summer after a decision which could result in many more being removed to restore views, reports the GWPF (from The Times).
The wind farm on Kirkby Moor on the Furness peninsula in Cumbria would be the first large one to be taken down since they began appearing around Britain in 1991.
South Lakeland district council refused an application by the wind farm operator to keep the turbines operating for another ten years until 2027.

“BUT…but…without the U.S, how do we fund our climate gabfests in every exotic corner of the world?! Jet travel, 5-star hotels, champagne and caviar cost money you know!” – Signed, concerned UN climate elites and environmental NGO’s.
While the COP23 climate conference is going on in Bon this week, there has been renewed wailing and gnashing of teeth over President Trump’s withdraw from the 2015 Paris Climate Accord this past summer. There are lots of reasons why the US doesn’t need to participate, but looking at this one graph, it becomes clear that other countries aren’t leading the way, not one bit. The USA leads by a large margin.
This is the graph climate alarmists and tax revenue trough feeders don’t want you to see:

In absolute terms coal use has fallen far more in America this century than anywhere else:
Most of the growth in CO2 emissions this century came from modernizing economies. And China and India dominated:
RET Driven Power Price Hike Bites: Cost of Australia’s Renewable Energy Madness Crushing Consumer ConfidencePosted: October 11, 2017
“The outlook isn’t encouraging either, with the full effect of higher energy bills yet to be felt,” said Capital Economics chief economist Paul Dales.”
FEAR NOT! The (inept) Turnbull Governments’ latest solution to Australia’s electricity crisis – to pay consumers for turning their AC off during summer for a $25 voucher – should save the day…and their government. Not!
More fake fixes to a fake catastrophe.
Stupidity on steroids.
Australian power consumers have just started opening their winter power bills, which are fully 20% higher than this time last year. By comparison, Australia’s underlying rate of inflation is around 1.5%.
The consequences for the economy, as a whole, are just starting to bite.
Restaurants, bars and retailers are copping it from both ends.
Business customers – often on retail power contracts with fixed prices for two or three years – are watching their power costs almost double, as they enter new contracts with prices fixed at the current rates.
And the customers who consume what these businesses hope to offer, have been forced to cut back on expenditure, simply to be in a position to pay their own rocketing power bills. Some might call it a vicious circle.
STT calls it a self-inflicted economic suicide.
Shoppers stay away as power costs bite
