Don’t Follow The Leader: How To Avoid Britain’s Wind & Solar Energy Disaster (Just Stop Now)

Britain’s power consumers (or what’s left of them) are brewing for a full-scale revolt. 12 months ago, the average annual energy bill was £1,400 ($2,400). Energy industry analyst Cornwall Insight forecasts that the British price cap will skyrocket and the average annual bill will reach £3,582 ($6,177) next month. By January, it predicts it will […]

Markets Reject ‘Coal is Dead’ Mantra: Global Thermal Coal Prices Surge to All New Record

Mark Twain noted reports of his death had been greatly exaggerated. So too, the ‘death’ of coal-fired power. For years, the wind and sun cult have been bleating triumphantly that ‘coal is dead’. Energy markets, however, don’t share their peculiar worldview. Thermal coal prices are off the charts, with record demand driving record prices: Australian thermal […]

Net-Zero Nonsense: Nothing Cheap About Mandated CO2 Emissions Reduction Targets

Net-zero carbon dioxide emissions targets are just the latest woke wheeze to grip our political betters. We’re told that wind and solar are central to so-called ‘net-zero CO2 emissions targets’. Never mind the renewables driven energy calamity playing out in Europe, California, Texas and now Australia. What is little more than a rebooted extension of […]

Vladimir Putin Not Responsible For Germany’s Self-Inflicted Wind & Solar Calamity

Vlad Putin is being accused by pundits as the only reason why Europe’s power prices are spiralling out of control. Not so. Sure, his grip on oil and gas supplies to Europe has put the squeeze on, particularly in Germany, but its so-called wind and solar ‘transition’ – the ‘Energiewende’ – was in serious strife […]

Time to Grow Up: Australia’s Idiotic Ban On Nuclear Power Has to Go Right Now

In power-starved Europe, nuclear is back in vogue, principally because it’s cheap and reliable and doesn’t depend on the weather or Russian dictators who supply the gas to fill the gaps when the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. There’s a reason that the French enjoy power prices half that suffered by their German […]

The Great Wind Power Swindle: Households & Businesses Being Crushed By Record Power Bills

If wind power is cheap, why does every country obsessed with it suffer rocketing power prices? The game of smoke and mirrors played by renewable energy rent-seekers, has enabled them to avoid any critical scrutiny of the role heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar play in driving power prices into orbit. A decade of […]

Murder – Not Suicide: Europe’s Renewable Energy Policy Threatens Lives & Livelihoods

When it comes to Europe’s wind and solar disaster, ignorance is no longer a defence.  As STT has been pointing out for over a decade, the power pricing and supply calamity that follows any serious effort to rely on wind and solar is the only thing ‘inevitable’ about the so-called ‘transition’. What’s happened in Germany, […]

Power Consumers Become Victims of Suicidal Subsidised Wind & Solar Push

No country that ‘invested’ in wind and solar has ever seen their retail power prices fall. In Europe, wind and solar ‘powered’ Germans and Danes are punished by Europe’s highest power prices – around double that paid by the nuclear-powered French. Australia’s wind and solar capital, South Australia set the benchmark down under for crippling power […]

Crippling Cost of ‘Green’ Energy Means Millions of Americans Can’t Afford Power

Claims that wind and solar are cheap, simply don’t add up. Glaring examples such as Germany, Denmark and South Australia tell the tale. Like night follows day, add heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid, and power prices are bound to spiral out of control. California led America in the race […]

‘Ministry of Plenty’ Declares Weather-Driven Power Rationing All For The Greater Good

In Orwell’s 1984, the Ministry of Plenty was quick to herald any positive statistic, however bogus. Standards of living were always rising; as was the production of food, shoelaces and ill-fitting boots. Triumphant announcements were made about the chocolate ration increasing, simultaneously that the ration was, in fact, being reduced. An example of what the […]
