Rocketing Power Prices & Grid Chaos: Germany’s Energy ‘Transition’ an Unmitigated Disaster

If the object of its renewable energy ‘transition’ was World’s highest power prices, it’s mission accomplished for Germany’s ‘Energiewende’. More than 30,000 wind turbines and millions of solar panels have made Germany the wind and solar cult’s favourite pinup girl. But there is not so much enthusiasm for Germany’s ‘green’ energy turn amongst businesses forced […]

Counting the Staggering Cost of Biden’s Offshore Wind Power Plans: Power Costs Set to Double

With Joe Biden and the Squad in the White House, American power consumers should strap themselves in for a very wild ride. Under his plans to spear or anchor 10,000 or more giant industrial wind turbines into the seafloor off America’s Atlantic coast, it’s not just the marine environment and fishermen who will suffer the […]

No-Brainer: Nuclear Power Only Solution For Those Fretting About Carbon Dioxide Gas

Nuclear power is the only stand-alone power generation source that does not generate carbon dioxide gas in the process. So why is it that those fretting about human-generated carbon dioxide gas aren’t screaming its merits from the rooftops? There are plenty among them who fit the category of ‘human hater’ – the kind who see […]

Government’s Grid Fix: Power Consumers Forced to Pay Coal-Fired Plants to Remain Online

  Having gouged $billions from power consumers and taxpayers to subsidise hopelessly unreliable wind and solar, the Federal government wants us to pay $millions more to undo the damage done to our once reliable power supply by its Renewable Energy Target. The point and purpose of subsidies and mandated targets favouring wind and solar was […]

Worried About Carbon Dioxide Gas? Then Start Promoting Nuclear Power, Right Now!

The character who frets about human generated carbon dioxide gas and who isn’t talking about a nuclear-powered future, will never be taken seriously. Nuclear power is the only stand-alone power generation system that does not emit carbon dioxide gas in the process. And, whereas wind and solar are hopelessly unreliable and chaotically intermittent, nuclear power […]

Black Forest’s Bleak Future: German Wilderness Wiped Out to Make Way For 1,000 Wind Turbines

Apparently, turning wilderness into smouldering ash is all for the greater good, provided it’s to make way for 260m high/300 tonne industrial juggernauts, aka wind turbines. Germany has speared over 30,000 of these things across its countryside. As land for doing so has become increasingly scarce, the strategy has been to clear-fell forests that were […]

Energy Means Life: Fossil Fuel Use Continues to Surge And The World’s All The Better For It

Grinding poverty is synonymous with the absence of reliable and affordable fossil fuel-based energy systems. Whether it’s oil for transport, gas for heating and cooking or coal for electricity, any country with a living standard worth having has access to at least two or more of the foregoing. Take a peek at a night-time satellite […]

Californian & Texan Renewable Energy Blackouts Force Americans to Back Base-Load Power

Base-load power means the stuff generated by coal, gas, nuclear and, where nature permits, hydro. Anyone claiming that wind or solar fit within that mix has never seen a sunset or experienced a burst of dead calm weather. And there’s the rub. Mass blackouts and power rationing in notionally wind and solar powered California during […]

New Nuclear Plants Herald Affordable & Reliable Energy Future For United Arab Emirates

There’s a simple reason that STT backs nuclear power: it works. Delivering affordable power 24 x 365 is the name of the game, something wind and solar are incapable of delivering, and which some 450 nuclear plants around the world have been doing day in day out, for years. Amongst the climate hysterics it’s easy […]

Land Hunger Games: Biden’s Plan to Carpet America With Energy Diffuse Wind & Solar

It’s not just wind and solar power’s pathetic performance that makes the whole virtue signalling exercise so utterly pointless. It’s also the fact that, to generate anything other than a trivial amount of electricity, you need the best part of a continent’s land area to do it. To accommodate 2,000 MW of coal, gas or […]
