Germany’s Energiewende: a disaster in the making

The latest YouTube video from “Friends of Science“ in Canada made me discover Fritz Vahrenholt.

Fritz Vahrenholt is associated with the GWPF, the Global Warming Policy Foundation, and has been for many years.

He recently wrote an article referred to by Michelle Sterling in the YouTube video I just mentioned, entitled “Let’s not commit economic suicide“, a view which I very much share.

But Fritz Vahrenholt, whose professional curriculum touched many aspects of the modern environmentalist “green energy“ companies in Germany, also wrote another very interesting article back in 2017, with a clear an simple title:

Germany faces an energy-political fiasco

What would make his say that?

The answers are all in the PDF file with his research:

Why are we planning to destroy ourselves?

You know about German angst. Climate priests, the media and politicians have created the illusion that carbon dioxide controls the climate. We are guilty, but we think that we can save the world if we simply turn the climate control knob – anthropogenic carbon dioxide – to nil.


Once again, it’s not about climate, but it’s about the impact of mankind on planet Earth.

Precisely like Alex Epstein has said for years. It’s not about climate. It’s about an anti-human philosophy.

This is the enemy.

Oh, and did I mention that Professor Fritz Vahrenholt has quite a CV? Just check for yourself…

The issue with unreliable energy sources

“Today in Energy” is a daily newsletter published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Today’s newsletter has a quite clear title, which proves once again why I like to call wind and solar energy “unreliables”. That is, sources of energy which we cannot rely upon.

The title of the newsletter is quite self-explanatory:

“Wind generation growth slowed in 2015 as wind speeds declined in key regions”

A key paragraph in the article is this:

U.S. wind generation grew by 5.1% in 2015, the smallest annual increase since at least 1999, as weather patterns in the Western half of the United States lowered wind speeds and dampened wind generation during the first half of the year. The same weather patterns resulted in stronger winds in the central part of the country, where wind generation growth in 2015 was most pronounced.

This is what happens when relying on unreliable energy sources. You throw a lot of money at them, and you can never be sure of the results.

How much money is being spent on unreliable wind energy?
