Energy consumption in wind facilities
Large wind turbines require a large amount of energy to operate. Other…
Following is a fairly incredible revelation, i.e., that in essence, the $1.4 billion MPRP (Maine Power Reliability Program, aka, the "CMP upgrade") was built, after all, for wind and solar.
From the BDN:…Continue
Power outages were initiated by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas early on Monday morning and lasted for days. This meant hundreds of thousands of Texans are without electricity for short periods of time. Temperatures…Continue

Blame a perfect storm of bad government policies, timing and weather. Coal and nuclear are the most reliable sources of power. But competition from heavily subsidized wind power and inexpensive natural gas, combined with stricter emissions regulation, has caused coal’s share of Texas’s electricity to plunge by more than half in a decade to 18%. Wind’s share has tripled to about 25% since 2010 and accounted for 42% of power last week before the freeze set in. About half of Texans rely on…Continue
For those of you with Amazon Prime, it is worth watching the Brit show called Time Team. Not only is it a fascinating show, but they frequently in their digging uncover harbors and estuaries where there is today a field many meters above current sea level.
Season 6 Episodes 11 is amazing in the discovery of an "island" which now contains the remnants of medieval and older era…
As the climate cabal (think John Kerry and AOC) scurries to distort the truth the disaster during Texas's polar vortex event, rationals minds are exposing the consequences of renewable dependeance and the kabuki theater of the scam known as the Green New Deal.
This report gets to the heart of the delusion: …Continue
Since 2017, renewables advocates have argued that offshore wind power is now very cheap. However, closer examination of their claims reveals a different story.
As the report’s author Andrew Montford explains:
“In fact, if you read the small print, renewables advocates are only saying that windfarms coming on stream after 2018 will be cheap. But we now know this is not…
The battle over a power line in Maine features a television advertisement depicting felled pine trees in the wooded US state paired with noir images of a corporate tower in modern Bilbao, near the Guggenheim art museum. A voiceover declares: “A good deal for Spain, and a bad deal for Maine.”
“They chose a very xenophobic message that I find incredibly troubling,” said Thorn Dickinson, chief executive of the Avangrid company building the Maine project.…
TEXAS POWER OUTAGE SHOWS IMPACTS OF THE VAGARIES OF THE WEATHER
Texas’ electric grid nearly melted down in the summer of 2019, when searing temperatures sent electricity demand soaring.
The state’s grid operator was able to keep the lights on, but many observers were worried. They wondered if Texas power plants would be able to match the rising demand, driven largely by residents reaching for the dial on their air conditioning units.

Rush: "Global warming, it stopped warming, so they changed it to climate change. Since they can’t really illustrate massive changes in climate, they modified things and started referring to anything, any weather extreme, as evidence of climate change, be it a flood, which had been happening since Genesis. Talk to Noah about that. Torrential rain. These things are now cited as examples of climate…Continue

Don't ever blame a wind turbine for anything in the media. This message rigging allows the green scammers to keep on selling more of these worthless heaps and infrastructure to the ignorant consumer. The truth is, all the turbines in Texas could be spinning at full speed and power would still be out.
The Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist praised Biden’s efforts to destroy the domestic fossil fuels industry in order to replace it with alternatives under the guise of an eco-friendly “sustainability” during an appearance on “60 Minutes” on Sunday.
During his chat with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Gates touted what he calls a “zero carbon future” that over the next 30 years will require a “global cooperation on a scale the world has never seen”. This is music to the ears of those who…Continue
China, India, New England and Vermont
Electric bus proponents often point to China to advance their interests, i.e., sell more electric buses
China has made electric buses and EVs in urban areas a priority to reduce its well-known excessive air pollution, due to: 1) using a lot of coal in dirty, inefficient power plants, and 2) vastly increased vehicle traffic in urban complexes with 15 to 30 million people each.
India has a China…Continue
‘My carbon footprint is absurdly high…I have felt guilty about this…I own big houses & fly in private planes…who am I to lecture anyone on the environment?’
Bill Gates: "It’s true that my carbon footprint is absurdly high. For a long time I have felt guilty about this. Working on this book has made me even more conscious of my responsibility to reduce my emissions; shrinking my carbon footprint is the least that can be…Continue

Maine’s burgeoning solar industry is up in arms, after many developers received emails from Central Maine Power last week indicating that their projects are causing technical problems at substations that could require costly upgrades. The controversy is erupting as scores of solar developers are building and proposing…
This sure makes for a good headline, but what if the sun goes behind the clouds for a few hours? What if there's no wind? How quickly do electricity users run down the battery, rendering it useless? Who pays for this? Why do we hear about New England's physical constraints on its natural gas supply when the only constraint are politicians' bans on much needed natural gas lines for Maine?
For some answers, please read Willem Post's "REALITY CHECK REGARDING UTILITY-SCALE BATTERY…Continue
Following the blatant theft of an election from the American people by the beyond crooked establishment, is it any surprise that the hoax of manmade climate existential emergency is now taking on this powerful official taxing authority which has the express purpose of harming the U.S. economy while handing a big victory to Communist China and Russia? Nice to see her background at …Continue
