Colossal Collapse: Wind & Solar Investment Plummets as Subsidies Subside

In the absence of endless subsidies, the wind and solar ‘industries’ would disappear in a heartbeat, which is precisely how things are panning out for renewable rent seekers in Australia. The idea that there is a natural market for electricity that can’t be delivered as and when it’s needed, is pure nonsense: hence the massive […]

Reboot Required: Fixing Wind & Solar Debacle Means Winding the Clock Back 30 Years

Lamenting their rocketing power bills and dreading mass blackouts this coming summer, Australians can be forgiven for their sense of despair. Australians once enjoyed the world’s cheapest power, reliably delivered, just like running water. No one talked about their power bills at backyard barbecues, or kept promising themselves that must have diesel generator to keep […]

Daily Debacle: Intermittent Wind & Solar Guarantee More Summertime Blackouts

An obsession with intermittent wind and solar is the prime cause of Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity. A ludicrous Federal Renewable Energy Target laid the foundation; Green/left Labor State Governments in South Australia and Victoria doubled down, and did the rest. Wind and solar obsessed South Australians suffer the world’s highest power prices and […]

Off Radar: Weathermen Wild As Interference From Wind Turbines Wrecks Their Radar Signals

Giant industrial wind turbines with their 60m blade’s tips clocking 350 kph play havoc with radar systems, giving false images and distorting real ones. The result is unnecessary danger for pilots dependent upon accurate weather reports, essential for safe takeoffs and landings. In a number of States, the US military has obtained legislation to prevent […]

Heartless: Wind Industry Covers Up Health Effects Caused by Low-Frequency Turbine Noise

A couple of years back, STT produced a timeline which highlighted how the wind industry and its pet acoustic consultants managed to set up ‘rules’ which have no relevance to the noise impacts experienced by wind farm neighbours and under which wind power outfits could ride roughshod over rural communities with complete impunity. That post […]

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 […]

Punishing Price: Australia’s Wind & Solar Obsession Means Power Prices Keep Rocketing

Like night follows day, adding chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid sends power prices into orbit. South Australians know it: they suffer the world’s highest power prices as a result of their 50% RET. Other Australian states are heading in the same direction. Victoria’s great wind rush has already sent prices rocketing: wholesale […]
