Energy Unplugged: Government Plans to Cut Your Power Whenever Wind & Solar Output Collapses

Visit the Third World and you’ll quickly understand the importance of having power as and when you need it. In the Western World, an obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar will save you the trip. Wind and solar ‘powered’ South Australians and Californians know all about Third World power supplies – with routine rationing, […]

Digging It: Mines, Minerals, and “Green” Energy: A Reality Check

It takes audacity to suggest that the wholesale environmental destruction wreaked by the wind and solar industries is all for the good of planet. Michael Moore’s Planet of the Humans managed to lift the lid on green hypocrisy, focusing on the raft of inconvenient truths behind the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time. Such as […]

What’s Under the Hood: The Dirty Secrets Of ‘Clean’ Electric Vehicles

  In their sillier moments, wind and solar advocates claim that we’ll all soon be driving electric vehicles, lovingly recharged with sunshine and breezes. In Australia, those seemingly virtuous souls with EVs are really being propelled by coal, because 85% of the electricity passing through its Eastern grid comes from coal-fired plants. It’s an irony, […]

Blood & Gore: Mike Moore’s ‘Planet of The Humans’ Unmasks The Power & Money Behind Renewables Scam

  Apoplexy is the order of the day among ‘green’ energy zealots following the release of Mike Moore’s ‘Planet of The Humans’. In the military they call it “blue on blue”, although when the hard left are pulling the trigger it’s more aptly described as “green on green”. But the documentary backed by Moore isn’t […]

Are Friends Electric: Push for Industrial Electrification Exposes Costly Futility of Intermittent Wind & Solar

In their sillier moments, wind and solar advocates claim that we’ll all soon be driving electric vehicles, lovingly recharged with sunshine and breezes. In Australia, those seemingly virtuous souls with EVs are really being propelled by coal, because 85% of the electricity passing through its Eastern grid comes from coal-fired plants. It’s an irony, to […]

Own Goal: Michael Moore Documentary Tackles Dark Side of Wind & Solar

Renewable energy zealots must hit the panic button when someone from their own team calls the wind and solar ‘industries’ rotten to the core. The hard green-left and so-called “progressives” take as an article of faith that those among them will worship wind and solar until kingdom come. So, when one of their own starts […]

Getting Wasted: 30 Years – $Billions in Subsidies – Wind & Solar Deliver Paltry 18% of California’s Energy Demand

Constant claims that wind and solar are already meaningful power sources are just a little ‘overblown’. Despite hundreds of $billions in subsidies, pie in the sky targets and punitive mandates, 30 years on and their combined contribution to total energy demand is little more than a rounding error. Even in places like wind and solar […]

US Wind Power Fraud: It’s Coal, Gas & Nuclear That Powers the Land of the Free

America’s resurgent prosperity is partly the product of its recent shale oil and gas revolution. From sea to shining sea, the US is awash with cheap gas; adding to its already abundant supplies of coal. With electricity prices around one third the cost paid in wind and solar obsessed Australia, anyone promoting that pair in […]

Electric Dreams: Energy Minister Pushes Coal-Powered Cars

  Those virtuous few driving all-Electric Vehicles are bound to ignore the fact that their cars really run on coal. A few posts back, STT covered Energy Minister, Josh Frydenberg’s latest flight of fancy: Fossil Fuel Renaissance: Australia’s Energy Minister Promotes Coal-Powered Cars While there’s nothing wrong in theory about all-Electric Vehicles, if they really were a […]

Fossil Fuel Renaissance: Australia’s Energy Minister Promotes Coal-Powered Cars

  Just when you thought Australia’s Energy Minister, Josh Frydenberg couldn’t get any more ridiculous, he outdoes himself. Presiding over a self-inflicted power pricing and supply calamity (for which his Liberal/National Coalition is just as culpable as the Green/Labor Alliance that helped set it up), Frydenberg has spent the last fortnight or so pushing all […]
