Fake ‘Green’ Energy: So Much Spent On Wind & Solar For So Little Return

Wind and solar are not just costly they are entirely useless. Never in the field of energy generation has so much been spent, by so many, for so little return. Forget the colossal and endless subsidies, forget the community division, forget the environmental destruction and landfills full of toxic blades and panels and start with […]

‘Green’ Energy Delusions: Promise of All Wind & Solar Powered Future Is Pure Fantasy

Anyone still talking about an ‘inevitable transition’ to wind and solar power must have skin in the game.  That wind and solar fail to deliver when consumers need power most, is hardly news.  STT has been laying it out on these pages since December 2012. Since then, sunset and calm weather have continued to smash […]

Ever Ascendant: True Cost of Unreliable Wind & Solar Continues to Rise Unabated

If wind and solar power were truly competitive with conventional generators, there would be no need for even a nickel in subsidies. The fact they continue unabated says it all. Claims that the cost of wind and solar generation are falling don’t stand a minute’s serious scrutiny. One group that has applied a blowtorch to […]

Crunch Time: Obsession With Unreliable Wind & Solar Threatens More Mass Blackouts

  Power grids are among the most sophisticated organisms on earth, but they were never designed for the chaos delivered daily by intermittent wind and solar. For power consumers the first realisation that there’s a problem comes with load shedding (controlled blackouts) or mass blackouts (when the grid manager loses control, altogether). When sudden and […]

Sunset & Calm Weather: Why Fossil Fuel Companies Love Intermittent Wind & Solar

The penny is starting to drop for the anti-fossil fuel squad: reliance on chaotically unreliable wind and solar guarantees dependence on fossil fuel. No bad thing in our view, mind you. The wind and solar acolyte started out believing that coal was already dead as the dodo and gas would soon follow. However, already 20 […]

Energy Transition: Germans Revolt Against Wind Power – As Power Prices Spiral Out of Control

Germany’s wind power transition has hit the wall: rural Germans are sick and tired of the noise, ruined landscapes and communities; and Germans of all persuasions are fed up with Europe’s highest power prices, which continue to rocket as a consequence of its so-called ‘renewable energy transition’ aka the ‘Energiewende’. Thanks to massive subsidies and […]

Enough is Enough: Time to End (Endless) Gravy Train for Subsidised Wind & Solar

Countless $billions are being squandered on subsidies to unreliable wind and solar, every single day. Wind and solar power don’t run on sunshine and breezes, they run on a seemingly endless stream of subsidies – without which, we simply wouldn’t be having this discussion. The merest hint threat of a cut to the subsidies sends […]

Another Summer of Discontent: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Californians Scrambling for Reliable Power

The sweeping blackouts that struck California last summer are back with a vengeance; another heatwave, another scramble for reliable power. The power rationing debacle that is plaguing Californians once again, is precisely what you’d expect when woolly-headed thinking overtakes sound engineering. The state-wide blackout that struck in mid-August 2020, was put down by officials to […]

Not In Anyone’s Backyard: Rural Americans Winning the Battle Against Industrial Wind Power

The only way to prevent industrial wind power destroying your community is to fight, and that’s exactly what Americans are doing across its heartland. Applying pressure to local governments and authorities, rural Americans are getting them onside and against the wind industry, with hundreds of projects rejected. Robert Bryce has been following this battle for […]

Reality Bites: Americans Finally Waking Up to the Nightmare Cost of Unreliable Wind and Solar

The wind and sun may be free, but wind and solar power are anything but. Hidden ‘green’ taxes, costs and charges, not to mention massive subsidies redirected from both taxpayers and power consumers to wind and solar generators are just the beginning. The market distortions created by those subsidies have wrecked the ability of conventional […]
