Australian Court Finds Wind Turbine Noise Exposure a ‘Pathway to Disease’: Waubra Foundation Vindicated

  In a World first, Australia’s Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) has declared that the “noise annoyance” caused by wind turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound “is a plausible pathway to disease” based on the “established association between noise annoyance and some diseases, including hypertension and cardiovascular disease, possibly mediated in part by disturbed sleep and/or […]

Germany’s ‘Green’ Dream Turns Nightmare: Merkel’s Plans for Wind Powered Future in Tatters

Dashed hopes and bitter disappointment seem all that’s left of Germany’s, hell-for-leather rush to renewables. STT keeps focusing on Germany (and South Australia) for obvious reasons: if you present yourself as a renewable energy ‘superpower’, expect your critics to have a field day when you fail. In Germany and South Australia their respective renewable energy […]

Insane Cost of Ontario’s Wind Power Obsession Killing Thousands of Manufacturing Jobs Forever

The principles of economics are not hard, nor are they a mystery. Jobs require viable businesses, viable businesses require cheap and reliable electricity. Deprive businesses of cheap and reliable power and those businesses will very soon cease to exist. Those truisms, however, continue to fall on deaf ears in Australia’s so-called ‘wind power capital’, South […]

Dirty Diesel the Real ‘Solution’ to South Australia’s Renewable Energy Disaster

  But for pride, arrogance and hubris SA’s vapid Premier, Jay Weatherill could have kept South Australia chugging away cheaply on coal-fired power for a paltry $30 million; the amount that Alinta wanted to keep its 520 MW Port Augusta power plant running for another five years or so. In a fit of petulance, Weatherill […]

South Australia’s Mega-Battery a Costly Exercise in ‘Green’ Vanity Signalling

South Australians wake every day to an unfolding economic nightmare: they pay the highest retail power prices in the world, while suffering routine load shedding (scheduled power cuts) and mass blackouts (unscheduled), whenever wind power output collapses on a total and totally unpredictable basis. Businesses are being wiped out and whole industries are under threat. […]

The Price of ‘Love’: Wind ‘Powered’ State Plugs into Mega-Battery as Power Prices Rocket

When you pump your credentials as the world’s renewable energy superpower, it’s pretty hard to avoid the fact that your constituents pay the highest retail power prices in the world. Wind and sun worshippers can’t have it both ways: either South Australia is Australia’s wind power capital and that fact explains why its consumers are […]

Scots Win Court Battle to Stop Wind Farm Proposal Poisoning Water Supply

Destroying underground water supplies is just another “wonderful” feature of eco-friendly wind power.  The largest of these things require a steel reinforced concrete base of around 400-500 m³. For 3MW turbines the bottom of the base itself – depending on the soil profile and rock strata – will sit between 5m and 10 m below […]
