Shameless: French Wind Power Outfit, Engie Determined to Desecrate Battlefield Graveyard

  On this day, at the 11th hour, 99 years ago the guns fell silent all across the Western Front. Remembrance Day in Australia doesn’t just mark an outbreak of poppies in lapels, it marks the end of what was meant to be the War to end all Wars. STT’s grandfathers served with the AIF […]

What the Wind Industry Doesn’t Want Anyone to Know

In this repost, STT welcomes Britain’s Peak Protection Force – and its blog, MindWind to our International Network. This insightful piece tackles the type of awkward questions that the wind industry would rather you never asked. And, sure as hell, will never openly answer.

Wind Power Subsidy Cuts Kill Thousands of Green Jobs: Siemens Sacks 6,000 Workers

The wind industry is little more than the most recent and elaborate effort to fleece gullible investors, in a list that dates back to “corporate investment classics”, like the South-Sea Bubble and Dutch tulip mania. In the wind industry, the scam is all about pitching bogus projected returns (based on overblown wind “forecasts”) (see our posts here and here and here and here); claiming that […]

Determined to Destroy Cheap Power Supplies – Renewables Zealots Out to Kill the Poor

Those smug know-it-alls that champion wind and solar power persistently claim the high moral ground, but religiously ignore the inevitable victims of their faux eco-zealotry: the poorest and most vulnerable in society, for whom paying for power has become an existential battle. To the billions in the Third World, where electricity has for too long […]

Kaput!: German Wind Farms Set for Dismantling as Subsidies Dry Up

Claims that wind turbines run on the smell of an oily rag and last for 25 years are a proven nonsense. What wind worshippers tend to forget is that these things have a useful (that is to say ‘economic’) lifespan of around 12 years. Subsidies are what built them. Subsidies are what run them. So, […]

Wind & Sun Undone: 100% Renewables Claims Complete Fantasy

In their sillier moments, wind and sun worshippers claim that, if only fossil fuel guzzling, climate-deniers would get out of their way, nature’s ‘wonder fuels’ could provide 100% of everybody’s energy needs, now and until kingdom come. However, in the global scheme of things, the contribution from wind and solar power barely registers, and amounts […]

German Wind Industry Collapse Imminent: Engineering Professor Deems ‘Energiewende’ Terminal

Germany has been held up by renewable energy zealots as the shining example of how to run on sunshine and breezes. However, like its doppelgänger down under, South Australia, eventually and inevitably, reality bites. German householders and businesses (just like those in South Australia) are being belted by rocketing power prices and – every time […]
