German Study Proves Its Combined Wind & Solar Capacity Must be 100% Backed by Coal/Gas/Nuclear 100% of the Time

  Amongst wind and sun worshippers, Germany is held in a kind of reverent awe. However, like everything held dear by the renewables cult, the ideal and the real are worlds apart. For years we were told that if you kept spearing wind turbines into the countryside and spread them far and wide, we could […]

Greens Founder Calls Germany’s Renewables Policy: “an Economic, Social and Ecological Disaster”

When people turn on wind power, it’s a one-way proposition: they never, ever worship these things again. And when the convert was among those who first championed the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time, they don’t just quietly fall out of love, they tend to become the loudest critics of all; a bit […]

Swedish Study Proves Pulsing Low-Frequency Wind Turbine Noise Causes Sleep Deprivation

  For those unfortunates forced to live with incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound, the cause of their inability to sleep is no mystery. Following the same trail being blazed by the Max Planck Institute in Germany which found infrasound exposure as the scientific cause of stress, sleep disruption and much more – Wind Farm […]

Greeks Rally Against Subsidised Wind Power & Wind Industry’s Unlawful Land Grabs

*** The Greeks can claim many things: weird and wonderful mythical gods and creatures (think Zeus and Poseidon, Pan and the Minotaur); deep thinking philosophers, such as Plato and Aristotle; and mathematicians well ahead of their time, think Archimedes and his bath-time ‘Eureka’ moment. Another claim worth crowing about is their ‘get-your-hands-dirty’ take on democracy, […]

Germany’s Wind Power Debacle Worsens: Too Much Power One Day, None the Next

*** Like South Australians, Germans are attempting to run on sunshine and breezes and in both places the results have been an unmitigated disaster. When power output depends on the weather and whether the sun is up and the sky isn’t clouded up, results can, as they say in marketing blurbs, ‘vary’. During January of […]

Europe Squanders €1.1 trillion on Wind & Solar: But Gets Only 4% of its Power from Sun & Wind

This piece was published last year, but the message is so stark it’s well-worth revisiting. Despite spending €1,100,000,000,000 on large-scale wind and solar generation, the amount of power being actually delivered in return is risible: The actual measured output by 2014 from data supplied by the Renewables Industry has been 38 Gigawatts or 3.8% of Europe’s electricity […]

Cavalcade of Wind Farm Chaos: Turbines Collapse, Explode & Get Shot by Angry Neighbour

STT’s sub-editor had a pretty tough time coming up with a headline that had some hope of capturing the cavalcade of chaos detailed in the stories below. We’ll start with yet another turbine collapse in the Emerald Isle. Wind turbine collapses as storms batter Northern Ireland Belfast Telegraph David Young 03 February 2017 High winds […]
