The Economic Waste of Wind and Solar 

 

Wind and solar are erratic sources of electricity. Solar stops when a cloud passes in front of the sun or the sun sets. Wind fades when the wind is weak. Thus wind or solar must be backed up by other generating plants, most commonly natural gas generating plants. The backup plants must ramp up and down to compensate for the ups and downs of the erratic wind or solar power.

 

Wind and solar do not replace existing generating plants and are not a substitute for adding traditional generation when demand increases. They are too erratic.

 

Wind and solar are highly subsidized and uneconomic. 

 

The book, Dumb Energy, exposes the fraud of wind and solar energy and explains why they are a danger to the electric grid

Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull out of office over foisting expensive 'green' power on his nation
 

Devotion to global warming has driven from office the head of government of a major democracy.  Facing a no confidence vote from the Liberal Party, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull resigned

 

There is little doubt that green energy policies cost Turnbull his office.  There has been widespread dissatisfaction over electricity prices that have skyrocketed as a result of the closure of coal-fired power plants and replacement with unreliable green energy (that has caused major blackouts).

Saudi Arabia puts world's biggest solar power project on hold

 

Saudi Arabia and funding partner SoftBank have reportedly shelved the $200 billion project. 

 

Despite vast deserts and abundant sunshine, Saudi Arabia currently has no solar power generation capacities. Instead, it produces its energy primarily from burning fossil fuels. 

But the country's entry into the solar market is being hampered by high costs and logistical issues. 

"Everyone is just hoping this whole idea would just die," a Saudi energy official familiar with the matter was quoted as saying.
