Greed Energy Economics:
“Offshore Wind Needs Bigger Subsidies”
Wind Subsidies Are Rising…but wind power production isn’t rising with them

Unreliables (General):
*** Shanghaied
*** Irrational Transition
*** EVs, wind, and solar are neither reliable nor environmentally friendly: here’s why
The Foundation of Property Rights: Where There Is No Law, There Is No Freedom
Private Property Rights

Wind Energy — Offshore:
*** Report: Offshore Wind Power (Dr. Michael Hogan)
*** The renewable green energy disaster off the northeastern US is getting worse Less than one per cent of the way to the Biden 2030 target
Offshore Wind Industry Braces for More Turbulence—and Trump

Wind Energy — Other:
*** Taking the Wind Out of Climate Change (referencing 60± studies)
*** Wind Turbines = Enormous “Unintended” Consequences
Australia has World Class windless weather: Today 95% of wind turbines are failing

Solar Energy:
*** Solar and Wind Resource Availability Fatal Flaw
As Solar Power Surges, U.S.
