Rapid RE Retreat: Looming Winter Blackouts Force Greeks to Reignite Coal-Fired Plants

  In the abstract, the ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun-powered future is easy, the kicker comes when reality bites; the sun sets and calm weather sets in. The Greeks, like the Germans, have been talking long and loud about killing off every last one of their coal-fired power plants, denigrating them as […]

Battle for Britain: Brits Scramble For Reliable Energy After Repeated Wind Power Failures

Hardly anyone in Britain is talking about wind power as a serious generation source, anymore. Total collapses in wind power output that lasted for days and even weeks, starting back in September, put paid to that kind of loose chatter. Instead, Brits appear to have been struck with the stark realisation that their power generation […]

Winter’s Inevitable Wind & Solar Output Collapses Guarantee More Deadly Blackouts

As another northern winter bites, it’s worth revisiting the deadly renewable energy calamity that hit America’s heartland back in February. Hundreds died in freezing homes, left without electricity thanks to hundreds of iced-up wind turbines, left frozen solid, and breathless frigid conditions that meant the remainder delivered no power, in any event. Solar fared no […]

Billions of Wind Turbine Blades Built With Balsa Wood Stripped From Amazon’s Forests

Green groups are starting to rumble the fact that wind power ain’t so green, after all. Giant industrial wind turbines comprise hundreds of tonnes of steel, aluminium, plastics, copper and rare earths used in the generator’s magnets. There is also at least a tonne of gear oil and hydraulic fluid on board. And then there’s […]

Numerical Nonsense: Why The Case For Intermittent Wind Power Never Adds Up

Because every MW of wind power capacity is matched with a MW of reliable coal, gas or nuclear power, the ‘case’ for subsidised wind will never add up Generating electricity 30% of the time – albeit that wind power outfits can never tell you in advance which 30% of the time that might be – […]

Boris Johnson’s Bizarre Persistence With Unreliable Wind Power Defies All Logic & Reason

Insanity is doing that same thing over and over again and expecting different results, which is why STT raises an eyebrow (or two) at Boris Johnson’s persistent love affair with heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind power. His belief that taking it all offshore will make a difference, only confirms that this man has a […]

Eagles Go Legal: Audubon Society Sues to Shutdown California’s Golden Eagle Mincers

The rampant slaughter of millions of birds and bats, including America’s iconic bald and golden eagles, is met with a shrug by wind power acolytes, everywhere. When confronted, the wind industry simply resorts to lies and obfuscation and – when the corpses can no longer be hidden and the lying fails – issue court proceedings in […]

Dirty Truth About ‘Clean’ Technologies: Or The True Cost of Climate Virtue Signalling

If ‘green’ means squandering the world’s resources, then wind and solar fit the bill, but if it’s about ‘saving the planet’, then they’re an almighty fraud. Having operated in this space since December 2012, when it comes to wind and solar industry spin and propaganda, STT has seen it all and heard it all. Wind […]

Wanton Waste: World’s Largest Wind Farm = World’s Largest White Elephant

Want to make a small fortune? Then take a large one and put it into offshore wind power. The costs of generating sporadic electricity using wind are staggering; doing so offshore makes them astronomical. And, it seems, the bigger the boondoggle, the more costly it becomes for the unwitting taxpayers, who are always left to […]

Energy Deficient: Wind & Solar Obsessed Germany Faces Long Dark Winter

With another bitter winter biting and suicidal renewable energy policies, Germans are reaping the whirlwind. Suffering Europe’s highest power prices and routine power rationing, is just the beginning. Mass blackouts and deliberate power cuts, like those suffered last winter, are guaranteed. Such is life when you attempt to run on sunshine and breezes. Prof. Fritz […]
