Reality Bites: Germany’s Wind & Solar Transition Declared Abject Failure

The German government’s cultish obsession with wind and solar is a mixture of wishful thinking and mass delusion. Both have collided with reality as Vlad Putin continues to put the squeeze on Europe’s gas supplies – gas which has been used to run the banks of fast-start-up gas turbines essential to backing up mammoth, sudden […]

No More Lip Service: The Time for Safe, Reliable & Affordable Nuclear is Right Now

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target directs more than $7 billion a year in subsidies to wind and solar and is doing precisely what it was designed to do: namely, destroying Australia’s reliable and affordable power supplies. At the political level, the scramble is now on to keep coal-fired power plants up and running, wait for it, […]

Renewable Energy Madness: Why Net-Zero CO2 Targets Herald New Miserable Dark Age

Wisdom comes with experience: people soon wise up to the reality of the wind and solar ‘transition’ once they’ve spent time freezing or boiling in the dark. Over time, the experience will be shared by more of our compatriots on planet Earth. Obsessive, indeed maniacal, renewable energy policies are a guarantee of crippling power bills […]

Poor Punishment: Energy Poverty Inevitable Result of Renewable Energy ‘Transition’

Germans are learning the truth about chaotically intermittent wind and solar, the hard way. Their erstwhile supplier is making the depth of their dependence on Russian gas keenly felt as he maintains his efforts to subjugate Ukraine and get Ukraine’s Western backers to back off. Across Europe, rushes recent squeeze on gas supplies has focused […]

French Method: China & Japan Follow French Lead On Nuclear Power Generation Renaissance

Nuclear power generation is back with a vengeance for two reasons: the evident nonsense of relying upon sunshine and breezes for reliable power; and the political desire to reduce carbon oxide gas emissions. True it is that even Germany’s Greens have dropped their CO2 emission reduction ambitions, but here in Australia the suicidal desire to […]

Wind & Solar Debacle Means It’s Time To Bring Small Nuclear Reactors Onshore

SMRs are no pipe dream: 200 small nuclear reactors are presently powering 160 ships and submarines all around the world, and have been for decades. What’s on foot is a move to bring those reactors onshore and use them to shore up power grids being wrecked by the chaotic intermittency of wind and solar. STT promotes […]

Nuclear Power: Perfect Cure For Wind & Solar Driven Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s power market is in a diabolical mess: massive subsidies to intermittent wind and solar have undermined reliable and affordable power supplies, sending Germany and Denmark’s power prices through the roof (see above). Since Vladimir Putin’s adventure in Ukraine, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per kWh. […]

‘Green’ Energy Suicide: Australia’s Anti-Nuclear Power Stance Beggars Belief

Australia’s politics is bereft of leadership and there’s no better example thereof than the failure to advance nuclear power in this country. Notwithstanding the unfolding power pricing and supply calamity – driven by chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar – its new Labor Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, more Elmer Fudd than Bob Hawke, […]

Fascist Fantasies: Net-Zero CO2 Targets Provide Perfect Path to Totalitarian Tyranny

Few realise that Hitler and his gang of monstrous thugs were the first serious wind power advocates. The Nazis destroyed tens of millions of lives and are synonymous with industrialised mass murder, but their role as champions of industrial wind power is less well-known. As Rupert Darwall put it: German obsession with renewable energy originates […]

Panic Stations: Daily Wind & Solar Shortfalls Threaten Australia’s Entire Electricity Grid

Subsidised and intermittent wind and solar infiltrate and destroy power grids like an aggressive cancer. But, unlike cancer, the cause of Australia’s power pricing and supply debacle is precisely known, and was as perfectly predictable, as it was perfectly avoidable. The massive subsidies to wind and solar were deliberately designed to knock reliable and affordable […]
