Small Modular Reactors: Pint-Sized Performers Add to Long-Term Nuclear Solution

  STT promotes nuclear power because it works: safe, affordable and reliable it’s the perfect foil for those obsessed about carbon dioxide gas – because it doesn’t generate any, while generating power on demand. One of the feeble ‘arguments’ against it, is that nuclear power plants are of such vast scale that they take longer […]

US Wind Power Fraud: It’s Coal, Gas & Nuclear That Powers the Land of the Free

America’s resurgent prosperity is partly the product of its recent shale oil and gas revolution. From sea to shining sea, the US is awash with cheap gas; adding to its already abundant supplies of coal. With electricity prices around one third the cost paid in wind and solar obsessed Australia, anyone promoting that pair in […]

Out to Wreck Your Economy & Punish the Poor & Vulnerable? Try Intermittent Wind & Solar

A generation or so back, the ‘green’ was a well-meaning tree-hugger. Then along came CO2 gas which resulted in a new shade of ‘green’. Gone was any vestige of human empathy, let alone compassion, both replaced by a maniacal belief that humans are literally ‘cockroaches’, devouring planet Earth. Instead of hoping to improve the environment […]

Atomic Reaction: Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle Prompts Push for Nuclear Power

  If CO2 gas really is the existential threat it’s made out to be, then nuclear power is the only solution. That’s if you want to provide reliable and affordable electricity to all comers, rather than destroying businesses and punishing households? In 2018, with debacles like wind ‘powered’ Germany, South Australia and Victoria on show, for […]

Cost & Reliability Winners: Coal & Nuclear Just Keep On Keeping On

Pin satisfaction of your power demands to the weather, and expect the results to vary just like the .. ahem .. weather. One of the paradoxes of energy generation is that the most reliable sources are the cheapest, by far. Coal and nuclear power generation don’t need a second system like pumped hydro, mythical mega-batteries […]

Power Vacuum: Australia’s Energy Crisis Screaming Out for Nuclear Option

Crippled by its suicidal obsession with wind and solar, Australia is screaming out for politicians with the wit and temerity to push the nuclear option. Power prices will continue to rocket, and the routine load shedding and blackouts suffered in SA will eventually burst across the border, plunging Victorians, among others, into Stone Age gloom. […]

Australia’s Endless Renewable Energy Nightmare: Subsidies Worth $4bn a Year Run Until 2031

  The line that Australia’s rocketing power prices will soon plummet is just a cruel hoax. The subsidies for large-scale wind and solar under the Federal government’s Large-Scale RET will total more than $60 billion over the life of that scheme: the Renewable Energy Certificates issued under the LRET have already added more than $15 […]
