Regrets: Fritz Vahrenholt – German RE Pioneer Demands End to Chaotic Wind Power Push

  If the tech savvy Germans can’t make wind and solar power work, no one can. The Germans love cobbling together endless, guttural syllables to create nouns longer than the Autobahn. ‘Energiewende’ roughly translates as ‘energy transition’, which Germans have taken to mean a new path with energy. Germans were told that instead of coal […]

Germany’s Wind & Solar Power FAIL: Top Economist Declares Energiewende “Delusional”

Wherever in the world governments have shackled their energy policies to nature’s ‘wonder fuels’, the sun and wind, it doesn’t take long for their constituents to enter a state of mortified panic as they recognise that their economic futures have been sacrificed to an obsessive cult-like ideology. Because so much money was in the offing […]

Germany’s ‘Green’ Dream Turns Nightmare: Merkel’s Plans for Wind Powered Future in Tatters

Dashed hopes and bitter disappointment seem all that’s left of Germany’s, hell-for-leather rush to renewables. STT keeps focusing on Germany (and South Australia) for obvious reasons: if you present yourself as a renewable energy ‘superpower’, expect your critics to have a field day when you fail. In Germany and South Australia their respective renewable energy […]

Outrageous Wind Farm Plan for Battlefield Graveyard Draws Fury from French & Australians

The wind industry is shameless: a plan to spear 6 turbines into the WWI Battlefield of Bullecourt, in Northern France has caused justifiable outrage in France, among those who still recognise the immeasurable sacrifice made by Australian infantrymen in their efforts to set France free from tyranny, a Century ago. However, that pales with the […]

Renewables Battery ‘Boom’: Exploding Mega-Storage System Generates Fireball & Toxic Lithium Plume in Belgium

As soon as ‘Joe Public’ worked out that the idea of running on sunshine and breezes was so much childish nonsense, renewables rent-seekers started peddling an even greater myth: that mega-batteries would store ‘free and abundant’ wind and solar power, whenever the sun was up and the wind was blowing (just right). Then, the myth […]

Wind Power Subsidy Cuts Kill Thousands of Green Jobs: Siemens Sacks 6,000 Workers

The wind industry is little more than the most recent and elaborate effort to fleece gullible investors, in a list that dates back to “corporate investment classics”, like the South-Sea Bubble and Dutch tulip mania. In the wind industry, the scam is all about pitching bogus projected returns (based on overblown wind “forecasts”) (see our posts here and here and here and here); claiming that […]
