THE FOLLY OF RENEWABLE ENERGY PROMOTION
The percentage of the time that the renewable resources produce power is really low. In Germany, the number one example of the energy shift, solar produces its rated power output just 11% of the time, which means you need a backup for 89 % of the time. For wind, the numbers are better but they also remain between 15 to 25 % so again, 85–75% of the time so they will also require a substantial backup.
The release of above movie is a major blow to the renewable power industry and the tens of thousands of climate functionaries that have been using a trace gas as a meal ticket– the same people whose light-fingered heirs
had gathered in Paris to lock us into this climate change madness. In short, it demonstrates many of the shortcomings and paradoxes of the renewable energy sector. The irony is that the attacks are from a leftist, climate alarmist perspective rather than from a moderate/conservative point of view.
Meanwhile China, who have pledged to begin reducing emissions by 2030, is building an insane number of coal fired power stations.
China has 121 gigawatts of coal plants under construction, which is more than is being built in the rest of the world combined. … As China opened itself to market reforms, it accelerated economic development, and its energy supply simply couldn’t keep up.
A Country carpeted with wind turbines with its rooftops glistening with solar panels is the product of one thing: endless and massive subsidies. Cut the subsidies, and the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time, would resolve itself in a heartbeat.
The massive battery, (left) the largest in the world in energy terms, delivers just 50 MW for six hours. After that, it’s empty.
One myth that pervades political discourse in this Country at the moment, is the story that subsidies for wind and solar are now a thing of the past. he past. Federal Treasurer, Scott Morrison was leading with his chin when he announced a couple of weeks back that: “The days of subsidising energy are over whether it’s for coal, wind, solar, any of them.”
We all might wish. However, Scott’s bold claim is, of course, utter bunkum.
The nonsense seems to have taken hold as a result of talk about the National Energy Guarantee. We’ll hand over to The Australian’s, Nick Cater for some insight on the NEG, before dealing with the “subsidies are over” furphy.
The COVID-19 pandemic has added fresh rancour to the climate change/subsidy debate. It has given the world a living example of what would happen if the hardline demands of climate-change activists were met.
A collapse of industrial production and an end to international air travel have drastically cut global carbon dioxide emissions. Environmental activists have said the results were bad for some humans and the economy but “fantastic for the environment”.
“Dear Greta,” former television meteorologist and popular US climate change blogger Anthony Watts began in an open letter to teenage climate campaigner Greta Thunberg last week. “So you got what you wanted. System change & economic slowdown is a real thing now. Airplanes, industry, jobs, restaurants, recreation, and schools are all shut down. Instead we have fear, poverty, misery, joblessness, economic ruin, and a bleak future. Happy now?”
