“Remember that when climate sharks claim that storms will become more intense.” P. Homewood

From the Guardian:
Wind farms are key to tackling climate change but warming will significantly cut the power of the wind across northern mid-latitudes, including the US, the UK and the Mediterranean, according to new research. However, some places, including eastern Australia, will see winds pick up.

ENERGIEWENDE : €1Trillion Low Carbon, Environmentally Sound, Reliable, Affordable Energy Transition Report CardPosted: November 26, 2017
IDEOLOGICALLY aggressive “green” Germany has spent €1 Trillion Euros, of other peoples’ money, on windmills and solar panels, under the Energiewende program.
THE transition to a low carbon, environmentally sound, reliable, and affordable energy utopia has been so successful that Germany is now cutting down “ancient forests” to pave the way for the biggest coal-fired power expansion in her history…
WHY not just erect more windmills or solar panels? What went wrong with them?
“Few things are so deadly as a misguided sense of compassion.” – Charles Colson
“The road to hell is paved with good intentions.”

DIESEL generators hooked up to energy networks in Australian states with a heavy reliance on “green” energy as part of a last-ditch effort to keep the lights on this summer!
SO, climate theory obsessed politicians blow up and decommission baseload “dirty” fossil-fuel power stations, to stop bad weather, and replace them with “dirty” fossil-fuel diesel generators to stop blackouts!
YOU literally can’t make up this unreliable-energy-insanity stuff up anymore.
AND the further cost to taxpayers already skyrocketing power bills!!
Australia’s ludicrous attempt to run on sunshine and breezes sometimes reads like the farcical plot of an episode of Blackadder or Fawlty Towers.
In a ‘you couldn’t make this up if you tried’ moment, Australia’s ‘greenest’ States, Victoria and South Australia (which has been forced to wear its mantle as ‘Australia’s wind power capital’, more like a crown of thorns), have been reduced to running on diesel generators.
Consumers set to cop cost of diesel back-up
14 November 2017
Victorian consumers could foot the bill for a summer energy plan using diesel generators as a stopgap during periods of peak demand.
In an about-face by the Andrews government, diesel generators will pump up to 100 megawatts of power into Victoria’s energy grid as back-up in case of extreme heatwaves this summer.
The plan by the Australian Energy Market Operator…

“One justification put up by the wind industry for the social and economic chaos caused by spiralling power costs was the claim that investment in wind power would create a “new” economy with millions of groovy “green” jobs.
True it was that Germany saw an increase in renewables related employment – the bulk of it in the development and manufacture of solar panels – but all of it was built on a raft of taxpayer and power consumer subsidies: it was – therefore – unsustainable.
Any job that relies on a subsidy results in a loss of employment elsewhere in the economy. In Germany, the subsidies for “green” jobs are paid for in rocketing power prices, which impacts on the profitability and competitiveness of all businesses and industries.” – STT August 2014
THE writings been on the wall for sometime now. Green central planning like economic planning of failed socialist regimes gone by is doomed for failure. Market distorting policies to pick winners only works until the money runs out. And err..the (public’s) money ran out a while back.
The wind industry is little more than the most recent and elaborate effort to fleece gullible investors, in a list that dates back to “corporate investment classics”, like the South-Sea Bubble and Dutch tulip mania.
In the wind industry, the scam is all about pitching bogus projected returns (based on overblown wind “forecasts”) (see our posts here and here and here and here); claiming that wind turbines will run for 25 years, without the need for so much as an oil change (see our posts here and here and here); and telling investors that massive government mandated subsidy schemes will outlast religion (see our posts here and here and here).
Now that the subsidies are drying up across Europe, solar panel and wind turbine makers are feeling the pinch, with tens of thousands of those groovy ‘green’ jobs already gone, or about to face the axe.

WHEN the wind don’t blow, or the subsidies cease to flow – the power doesn’t flow and the windmills will GO!
EXCELLENT news for business, families and workers…
“SEVERAL thousand wind turbines in Germany are likely to be closed down in the next decade because they will no longer receive any subsidies. “If electricity prices do not rise over the next decade, only a few plants will survive on the market without subsidies,” says an analysis by the Berlin-based consulting firm Energy Brainpool.”
“ON another note, the Kiel, German-based Kieler Nachrichten (KN) reports: “Thousands of wind turbines will be supposedly dismantled over the coming decade because the state subsidies will run out”.
Claims that wind turbines run on the smell of an oily rag and last for 25 years are a proven nonsense.
What wind worshippers tend to forget is that these things have a useful (that is to say ‘economic’) lifespan of around 12 years.
Subsidies are what built them. Subsidies are what run them. So, when the subsidies run out, it isn’t long before the only remaining force at work is rust.
No country went harder or faster than Germany, when it came to spearing wind turbines and splaying solar panels as far as the eye can see.
The cost for German households and businesses, in terms of rocketing power prices, has been colossal and the effect on its grid is both costly and chaotic (a point picked up in the second piece in today’s post).
But first, here’s what happens when the subsidy plug gets pulled.

Unreliable-energy strikes again.
Too little wind – no power. Too much wind – calamity.
THE mad obsession with novelty, symbolic, weather-dependent “save the planet” energy sources echoes the jingle from the Kellogg’s cereal ad of the 90’s “not too little, not too much, just right”.
EITHER way – Huston, we have a big, big problem.
The blades of a wind turbine at an Australian Antarctic base broke off and narrowly missed a storage building as they crashed to the ground, reports Phys.org, forcing the icy outpost to switch to backup power.
The head of the turbine, one of two at Mawson station, plunged 30 metres (100 feet) on Tuesday evening, despite there being only moderate gusts of wind at the time.
All 13 members of the expedition at the station are safe, and were inside their living quarters at the time, said Rob Wooding, general manager of support and operations at the base.
The second turbine was deactivated as a precaution, with the base switching to its diesel generators.
