Living in Australia? Then You’re Being Powered By Coal – So Deal With It!

If you’re reading this post in Australia, you’re doing so thanks to coal-fired power. Don’t like it? Then get off the internet. And, while you’re at it, turn off your lights, your air-conditioner, let your smart phone run flat and, just for laughs, start tackling busy intersections without the benefit of traffic lights. Wind ‘powered’ […]

Energy Minister – Angus Taylor: Subsidised Wind & Solar ‘Virtue Signalling with Other People’s Money’

  The world was overrun by insanely costly and chaotically intermittent wind and solar, thanks to an endless stream of other people’s money. Preaching the gospel about nature’s wonder fuels, isn’t simply about moral posturing and virtue signalling. It’s also about separating taxpayers and power consumers from their hard-earned: over the life of the Federal […]

Mortal Enemy: New Energy Minister – Angus Taylor Spells Doom for Subsidised Wind & Solar

  The wind and solar industries are built on lies and fuelled by subsidies. Angus Taylor is alive to the former and focused on ending the latter. Barely a month into the job, for some reason, the very mention of Angus Taylor sends renewable energy rent seekers into a state of apoplexy. One reason could […]

Merkel’s Muddle: Coal Keeps Powering On as Germany’s Renewable Energy Transition Implodes

  Germany’s ‘transition’ to wind and solar is a full-scale debacle: rocketing power prices and an unstable grid, the only tangible ‘results’. Anyone still talking about an ‘inevitable transition’ to nature’s wonder fuels, only needs to be reminded about the power pricing and supply calamity that is South Australia. As another example of what follows […]

Time to Die: New PM Must Bury Turnbull’s $10bn Snowy 2.0 Pumped Hydro Boondoggle

Wind and large-scale solar are doomed, but the saviour is said to be pumped hydro; paid for, of course, with other people’s money. Touted by ex-PM Malcom Turnbull and his hapless sidekick, Josh Frydenberg as the Nation’s mega-battery, the heavily-hyped Snowy 2.0 pumped hydro scheme (shelved in the 1970s because it was uneconomic then) has […]

Marriage Meltdown: How A Love Affair With Intermittent Wind & Solar Ended In Tears

Australia’s grab bag of renewable energy policies are like a marriage made in hell. Destroying its once reliable grid and sending power prices through the roof, Federal and State Renewable Energy Targets are designed to destroy conventional generators. And, so far, they’ve done an admirable job. Australia now faces a summer of widespread blackouts and […]

Farmers Fightback: Investigator’s Noise Nuisance Finding Leaves Australian Wind Industry Furious

For too long the wind industry has ‘owned the game’. Thanks to a determined lawyer and her equally determined clients, they’ve just lost it. Following on from Saturday’s post – Victorian Vengeance: Neighbours Launch $Multi-Million Noise Nuisance Law Suit Against Wind Farm Operator & Local Council – STT takes another look at the case that’s […]
