Renewable Energy Targets: Unaffordable & Unreliable Power Threatens Every Mineral Processing Job

The apparent object of renewable energy targets is to make power so expensive and unreliable that eventually no one will bother to use it. At least that’s what occurred in Australia, thanks to its Federal government’s Renewable Energy Target, which will redirect more than $60 billion to chaotically intermittent wind and solar over the life […]

German Hi-Tech Firms Driven Offshore By Unaffordable & Unreliable Renewable Energy

‘Net zero’ is precisely the number of meaningful jobs that’ll be left after our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future. Looking for an example? Look no further than the wind and solar acolyte’s pinup girl, Germany. Notwithstanding billions of euros in subsidies, courageous mandates and punitive targets, its Energiewende has failed […]

Going, Going, Gone: Renewables Sector Reels As 150,000 German ‘Green’ Jobs Evaporate

The great ‘green’ jobs ‘bonanza’ is being revealed for the hoax that it truly is. And nowhere is that reality harsher, than in Mutti Merkel’s Germany. Plastered in solar panels (albeit blanketed in snow and ice at the moment) and overrun with 30,000 of these things, Deutschland has been held up as a renewable energy […]

Net Loser: Subsidised Wind & Solar ‘Industries’ Destroy More Jobs Than They Ever Create

Calling wind and solar ‘industries’ is sloppy; any operation that can’t survive without massive and perpetual subsidies isn’t really an ‘industry’, at all. Industry connotes effort, output and production. Whereas the wind and solar scam involves destruction on all fronts: environmental, social and economic. The myth about so-called ‘green’ energy jobs, is just that. South […]

Power Battle: Common Sense Abandoned With Push For More Intermittent Wind & Solar

Our good friends’ logic and reason were sacrificed long ago by the High Priests of the wind and solar cult. Attempt to point out the inevitable effect of sunset on solar output and/or calm weather on wind power output and you’ll be branded ‘heretic’, before you know it. You’ll be sent off to an education […]

It’s Subsidised Wind & Solar or Meaningful Well-Paid Jobs: But You Can’t Have Both

Australian power prices went through the roof as a result of its obsession with chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar (see above). The relationship is so stark, why even a blind man, open to reality, will readily see it.  However, no amount of evidence appears to register with those who pretend to govern […]

Wrecking Ball: Australia’s Fixation With Subsidised Renewables Guarantees Economic Disaster

If the object was wrecking every last manufacturing, mineral processing and mining job, then Australia’s renewable energy policy has delivered on time and under budget. Starting in 2001 with John Howard’s Renewable Energy Target (massively expanded by Kevin Rudd in 2009), the subsidies being squandered on intermittent wind and solar are now in the order […]

Technology Tease: On The Cruel Promise of a Renewables/Hydrogen Fuelled Future

  The wind and solar industries were built on lies, run on myth and are fuelled by subsidies, so the only way forward is more of the very same. It took politicians and punters around a decade to cotton on to the hopeless unreliability and chaotic intermittency of solar and wind power.  Which required an […]

Brits Biggest Losers: China Biggest Winner From Boris Johnson’s £50bn Wind Power Plan

Offshoring jobs and lining the pockets of foreign wind turbine makers is part and parcel of Britain’s giant wind power scam. Boris Johnson’s plan to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on subsidies and over-the-market contracts for intermittent offshore wind power is positively bonkers. At a time when Britain needs all the help it can get to claw itself […]

Real Power, Real Jobs: Unions Demand Nuclear Power and End to Offshore Wind

Among the myriad of myths propounded by the wind industry sits the promise of millions of groovy ‘green’ jobs purportedly on offer. In this post STT covered a very detailed study from Wisconsin on the effect of rising power prices (caused by massive subsidies diverted to wind and solar) has on real jobs. Based on actual […]
