No Net-Zero: China’s Rise Built On Insatiable Demand for Cheap & Reliable Coal-Fired Power

The economic and military rise of China is based on coal-fired power, and a firm rejection of the suicidal net-zero emissions targets adopted by their Western opponents. China’s love affair with coal and nuclear power continues to flourish and, contrary to Western myth, the CCP has turned on unreliable wind and solar, with a vengeance […]

Prices Double: Obsession With Subsidised Wind & Solar Causes Runaway Power Prices

Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity is the product of policies deliberately designed to wreck reliable and affordable power supplies. Massive and seemingly endless subsidies to chaotically intermittent wind and solar have done what they were designed to do: drive the owners of reliable coal-fired power generators to the wall, by allowing wind and solar […]

Wrecking Ball: Net Zero CO2 Emissions Targets Guarantee Economic Armageddon

Driven by climate alarmists and rent seekers ready to profit from the wind and solar subsidy scam, net zero carbon dioxide emissions targets are just the latest woke wheeze to grip our political betters. The idea that modern economies can function without the energy generated by fossil-fuels (whether consumed by motorcars or in power generation) […]

Coal Hard Fact: Fossil Fuel The Central Foundation For Modern Human Civilisation

The miserable misanthropes and neo-Marxists reckon that fossil fuels are an evil to be driven back to the depths from whence they came. Except, of course, when it comes to their own selfish energy needs. Spend a week gathering dung and twigs to cook meals over a smoky fire in an unlit hut, and you’ll […]

No Mystery: Calm Weather & Sunset Root Cause of Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

The relationship between weather-dependent wind/sunshine dependent solar and rocketing power prices is crystal clear, so too the post ‘transition’ phenomenon of power rationing caused by sunset and/or calm weather. Australia isn’t alone in experiencing a power pricing and supply calamity, all its very own making; Germans, Danes and Californians have enjoyed much the same and […]

Total Failure: Britain’s Grand ‘Cheap’ Wind Power Plan Faces Total Collapse

If wind power is so ‘cheap’, then why is it that retail power prices continue to rocket in every country attempting to run on breezes? There are, as this site has pointed out over the last decade, myriad reasons, starting with the fact that wind power can only be delivered as and when Mother Nature […]

Nuclear Power Only Way to Meet Net-Zero Carbon Dioxide Emissions Targets

The climate alarmists and RE rent-seekers pushing net-zero carbon dioxide emissions targets hate nuclear power because it’s the only way of satisfying any such target. And at the heart of that proposition, is the fact that the true cost of wind and solar are truly out of this world. As a partial concession to their […]

Net-Zero ‘Green’ Reset Designed to Destroy Our Reliable & Affordable Power Supplies

Net-zero carbon dioxide gas emissions targets are designed to destroy the reliable and affordable power supplies that have brought prosperity to billions around the globe. Dressed up in marketing blurb, net-zero targets sound cheap, but with energy supplies there is no such thing as a free lunch. Plenty of household and businesses have already worked […]

Renewable Energy Rip-Off: How Price Gougers Profit From Sunset & Calm Weather

Intermittent wind and solar are a natural guarantee of grid chaos and rocketing power prices. every single country that’s chased the wind and solar pipe dream has watched their power prices go through the roof, with no exception. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. STT has been banging on about this since December 2012. The […]

The Hard Data: Why Subsidised Wind & Solar Inevitably Drive Power Prices Into Orbit

The relationship between rocketing power prices and heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar couldn’t be clearer. Every country that’s embarked on the so-called ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future is suffering from surging power prices. Add wind and solar generating capacity and watch power prices go into orbit, as […]
