Wilderness Wipeout: Giant Wind & Solar Farms Destroying Pristine Wildlife Habitats

  The scale of the environmental destruction wreaked by giant wind and solar farms is out of all proportion to the economic benefits they provide; if any. Apart from the subsidies they attract, STT can’t think of any. Wiping out entire forest habitats is all part of our ‘inevitable’ transition to a wind powered future. […]

“Juice: How Electricity Explains The World” or ‘Why Economic Development Depends on Reliable & Affordable Power’

Want to know how important electricity is to modern life? Try living a comfortable and civilised life without it. More than a billion humans struggle through daily life without access to power at all, and two billion more are limited to a meagre trickle, because in developing countries it’s both unreliable and too expensive for […]

Toxic Truth: Millions Of Solar Panels & Wind Turbine Blades Destined For Landfills

The so-called wind and solar ‘industries’ are barely out of nappies, and yet they’re already responsible for a smorgasbord of toxic waste. The magnets in wind turbine generators are made from neodymium and dysprosium, rare earth minerals mined almost exclusively in China, which controls 95 percent of the world’s supply of rare earth minerals. The […]

Giant Batteries Bomb: Renewable Energy Storage Systems Literally Setting The World On Fire

  Renewable energy rent-seekers have been furiously peddling the myth that mega-batteries were a free and easy solution to the hopeless intermittency of weather-dependent wind and solar. The line goes that giant banks of lithium ion cells can store ‘free and abundant’ wind and solar power, whenever the sun is up and the wind is […]

Scorched Earth Policy: Entire Forests Being Clear-Felled To Make Way For Mega-Wind Turbines

In one breath the wind industry and its acolytes talk about “saving the planet”, in the next they’re destroying it, wholesale. Millions of birds, bats and bugs are being wiped out with impunity. And millions of acres of forest have been treated with the same malicious contempt. In Scotland, since 2000, the wind industry has […]

Scotland’s Wind Industry Clear-Fells 17,283 Acres & Wipes Out 14,000,000 Trees To ‘Save’ Planet

  Wiping out entire forest habitats is all part of our ‘inevitable’ transition to a wind powered future. Across Germany, millions of acres of forest have been clear-felled and great swathes cut through others, to allow some 30,000 of these things to be speared across Deutschland. The same wanton destruction has been integral to Scotland’s […]

Total Shutdown: German Revolt Against Industrial Wind Power Brings Wind Farm Construction to Standstill

The German wind industry is in free-fall: new construction is at a standstill, in no small part due to the fact that rural Germans are in full-scale revolt against the wind industry. In 2019 less than 200 turbines were erected onshore and a trifling 160 are planned for 2020, so far. Tens of thousands of those […]
