Batteries Cannot Make Renewables Reliable

April 27, 2019 by

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Utilities are starting to experiment with adding batteries to wind and solar projects. These storage projects are feeding the mistaken belief that batteries can cure the intermittency that makes wind and solar unworkable as a reliable source of power. The reality is that these battery projects are trivial in size […]

From Whence Comes The Power To Drive Electric Vehicles?

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ Elon Musk recognized early on there was money to be made in businesses that support environmental causes. He has gained the support of the green movement by broadcasting his vision for a future without fossil fuels, reducing global warming and traveling on battery powered cars. However most people do not […]

Yet Another Bogus Renewables Versus Coal Cost Study

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ These days there is a recurring refrain from the greens to the effect that renewable power is cheaper than coal power. This is a half truth at best and the false half is the worst part. There may well be circumstances where the unit cost of power produced by a […]

Sorry Kids – The Next Energy Alternative Is Not Here, Yet

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ What happens when – in the name of combating climate change – gigantic, industrial-sized renewable energy projects are thrust upon unsuspecting rural communities whose residents soon find out that these unsightly monstrosities destroy vegetation and wildlife, pollute rivers, streams and groundwater, and lead to higher electricity prices for families and […]

A Brutal Example Of Why 100% Renewables Can’t Work

February 5, 2019 by

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The brutal cold wave that just struck America provides a stark example of why 100% renewables cannot possibly work. Once the massive high pressure system was in place there was almost no wind, so no significant wind power. And the coldest temperatures by far were at night or early morning, […]

Saved By Pseudo-Renewable Energy?

By Paul Driessen ~ The IPCC says it’s still possible to limit planetary warming to an additional 0.5 degrees C (0.9 F) “above pre-industrial levels” – but only if global CO2 emissions are halved by 2030 and zeroed out by 2050. So climate alarmists intend to carbon-tax, legislate and regulate our energy, factories, livelihoods, living […]
