Scotland’s ‘Green’ Jobs Revolution Implodes: Wind Turbine Manufacturer Sacks Hundreds

A job that depends on subsidies, isn’t really a job, at all, it’s a make-work scheme cooked up by closet socialists. And, so it is, with the so-called “green jobs” that self-evidently exist, and only exist, while the renewable energy subsidies keep flowing. There is no natural market for intermittent wind or solar power, because […]

Wind Industry ‘Support’ Fades: No Place For Subsidised Wind Power, Anywhere, Ever

The line about everyone just “loving” wind farms is all down to spin from wind industry propaganda merchants based on Mickey Mouse “surveys” that claim that every last one of your compatriots is itching to spear thousands of things right into your backyard (not theirs, of course). Nothing generates more hatred and bitter community division […]

Black Days & Darker Nights: Engineers Spell Out Threat Posed by Increasing Reliance On Wind & Solar

Pin your power supply hopes on sunshine and breezes, and get prepared for mixed results. South Australians, Californians and Texans know what comes from an overreliance on the unreliables, with plenty of experience of weather-related load shedding and mass blackouts. Increasing dependence on chaotically intermittent wind and solar is the price we’ve paid for allowing […]

Highland Heist: During 2020 Scots Paid Wind Power Outfits £235,000,000 To NOT Produce Power

Chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind power is costing the normally parsimonious Scots a veritable fortune, even when their wind turbines aren’t producing so much as a spark. There aren’t many businesses where a major source of revenue is being paid to NOT produce what it is that your business is meant to produce. STT […]

Scots Suffer Crippling Power Bills, While Wind Industry Pocket £Billions in Record Subsidies

  Scotland’s wind power scam is positively criminal: foreign-owned wind power outfits have pocket tens of £billions in subsidies; working-class Scots struggle to pay crippling power bills – plenty of them have no hope of powering their homes ever again. A further obscenity is the fact that wind farms in Scotland are routinely paid hundreds […]

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 […]

World’s Biggest Scams: Scotland’s Wind Farms Paid £650,000,000 To NOT Produce Power

In the history of commerce, there’s never been a financial scam that comes anywhere near rivalling subsidised wind power. There aren’t many businesses where a major source of revenue is being paid to NOT produce what it is that your business is meant to produce. STT is at a loss to find many other current […]

Post Modern Power: Scots Face Whopping Bill For Government’s Wind Power Obsession

Scotland’s energy policy was hijacked by lunatics and the canny Scot, renowned for their parsimony, is paying a very heavy price, indeed. The subsidies paid to wind power outfits have been colossal; and all that state-mandated largess is being tacked onto Scottish power bills and/or picked up by taxpayers, south of the border. One of […]

Scotland’s Wind Industry Clear-Fells 17,283 Acres & Wipes Out 14,000,000 Trees To ‘Save’ Planet

  Wiping out entire forest habitats is all part of our ‘inevitable’ transition to a wind powered future. Across Germany, millions of acres of forest have been clear-felled and great swathes cut through others, to allow some 30,000 of these things to be speared across Deutschland. The same wanton destruction has been integral to Scotland’s […]

Money For Nothing: Scotland’s Wind Farms Earn More Revenue When They’re Turned Off!!

The fact that Scotland’s wind farms have pocketed £650m for not generating power has attracted more than just a little attention. STT has run several stories over the last few months about wind power outfits being paid very handsomely to NOT generate electricity. Perhaps it’s the sense of outrage that comes with knowing a group […]
