Punishing Price of ‘Virtue’ Signalling: Canberra Power Price Surge Follows 100% RE Push

  When George Orwell described ‘doublethink’ and ‘doublespeak’ he surely had the renewable energy zealot in mind. In the Nation’s capital, Canberra the swamp is lined with renewable energy rent seekers – always on the prowl for more and more extensive subsidies, soft loans and favourable treatment from the Federal government – and populated by […]

Solar Slaves: China Dominates Market For Solar Panels Using Forced Uighur Labour

The smugness exhibited by the owners of solar panels is in its own special class. Pious and self-righteous, these characters are quick to pontificate about their holier than thou credentials. Of course, plastering one’s roof with solar panels is all about saving the planet; and has nothing to do with bleeding their neighbours dry – […]

It’s Ever-Reliable Coal-Fired Power That’s Powering Australia & Will Be For Years to Come

Another burst of calm weather has proved the point: anyone who believes wind power is a meaningful power source, is delusional. The wind and solar cult keep telling us that we’re a heartbeat away from an all wind and sun powered future. The same crowd also claims that coal-fired power is dead as the dodo. […]

Renewable Energy Targets: Unaffordable & Unreliable Power Threatens Every Mineral Processing Job

The apparent object of renewable energy targets is to make power so expensive and unreliable that eventually no one will bother to use it. At least that’s what occurred in Australia, thanks to its Federal government’s Renewable Energy Target, which will redirect more than $60 billion to chaotically intermittent wind and solar over the life […]

Climate Warriors Furious Over India & China’s Insatiable Thirst for Coal-Fired Power

For years now, we’ve been told that “coal is dead” and that India and China will plump for wind and solar, instead of coal-fired power. Well, that’s the line being run by renewable energy rent seekers and wind and solar zealots around the globe. It is, of course, complete bunkum. With hundreds of millions still […]

Vale: Dick Paltridge – South Australia’s Champion Wind Farm Warrior

Richard ‘Dick’ Paltridge was a giant of a man; physically imposing, stoic and taciturn, his dogged pursuit of what was right places him in the STT Hall of Fame. Dick shuffled off this mortal coil on 23 March this year, leaving a legacy of peace and tranquillity in his patch of paradise, Allendale situated in […]

Great Socialist Reset: ‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Means No Future for YOU

Wind and solar isn’t about providing power to the people, it’s about depriving people of reliable and affordable power, and lining the pockets of crony capitalists with massive and endless subsidies. Australia is no exception. The subsidies to wind and solar here will top $60 billion by the end of this decade.  And, if rent […]

Wind Power Fail: Britain’s Coal-Fired Power Plants Keep The Lights On During ‘Big Calm’

If having no power at all was the object of our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and solar ‘powered’ future, then we’re well on our way. The bitter northern hemisphere winter just gone, has shown wind and solar for what they are: pointless and expensive vanity projects, that only a lunatic would promote and […]

Mortal Combat: Rural Communities Rally to Defeat Wind Industry’s Steamroller Strategy

Nothing invokes rage and fury in rural communities like a wind farm comprising dozens and sometimes hundreds of 300 tonne, 200-270m high industrial monstrosities. Western Victoria has been overrun with these things; once peaceful pastoral properties are encircled by them, and drowned in a cacophony of thumping, grinding low-frequency turbine noise. The wind industry and […]

Full-Steam Ahead: No End to China’s Insatiable Appetite For Coal-Fired Power

China isn’t even vaguely interested in intermittent wind and solar; it’s insatiable demand for coal to fuel coal-fired power plants tells the story, as does the fact that it continues to build new coal-fired plants, hand over fist. All despite claims by wind and solar cult that China will soon turn its nose up at […]
