Monumental Fail: Why Intermittent & Unreliable Wind & Solar Can Never Work

No industrial economy ever powered itself on wind and solar; no such country ever will. Sunset and calm weather are very real things; whereas grid-scale storage electricity is a myth. As subsidies for wind and solar are drying up, rent-seekers hoping to cash in are running a mile. There has been an almost total collapse […]

Worse Than Useless: Chaotically Intermittent Wind Power Never There When It’s Needed Most

Subsidies aside, wind power has no natural commercial value simply because it cannot be delivered as and when power consumers need it. And the mythical notion of storing electricity at grid-scale doesn’t alter that equation, it simply makes wind power even more ridiculously expensive, than it already is. With wind and solar obsessed South Australia […]

The Power Hunger Games: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Can Never Power the Planet

The prospect of a 100% renewable energy future is 100% pure, unadulterated myth. Placard waving teens fretting about the weather in 30 years’ time might demand it, but logic, physics, meteorology and economics will forever conspire against an all wind and sun powered future. And the idea that a transition to wind and solar is […]

New Inquisition: Renewable Energy Zealots Can’t Face Facts Like Sunset & Calm Weather

No country has ever powered itself on sunshine and breezes; no country ever will. The simple daily occurrence of sunset and calm weather provides the […]

Cost-Effective ‘Renewable’ Energy Is Like Unobtanium: A Fictional Construct

Wind power sits comfortably alongside Alchemy and perpetual motion machines: ideas that were both superficially attractive and utterly impossible. No country has ever powered itself entirely with wind power, and no country ever will. Putting aside their unreliability and chaotic intermittency, the amount of energy and resources that go into building a single wind turbine […]

Battle Lost: Mob Turns Against Chaotically Intermittent & Heavily Subsidised Wind & Solar

  Seems like only yesterday when you were hard pressed to find anything in print criticising wind and solar, save for sites like this one. Nowadays, there’s a veritable smorgasbord. Quite a few mainstream journalists are waking up to the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time. STT has been joined by dozens of […]

Wind Industry Crisis Spreads: German & Australian Environmentalists Turn Against Pointless & Destructive Wind Power

The inevitable backlash against wind power started in Germany and it’s spreading, fast. The fact that chaotically intermittent wind power can’t be delivered as and when power consumers need it means the wanton destruction of pristine wilderness, bucolic landscapes, rural communities, and millions of birds and bats (including plenty of species on the brink of […]
