For Peat’s Sake: CO2 Emissions Rise as Wind Turbines Destroy Europe’s Ancient Bog Lands

Endless subsidies for wind turbines are said to be justified by the CO2 emissions they purportedly save. Europe’s peat bogs – natural CO2 sinks – are being ripped up, drained and destroyed to make way for these things, all in an effort to reduce CO2 emissions. Gouging 30m deep pits and filling them with 400-500 […]

Simple Arithmetic: Why Net Zero Emissions Targets Will Never Be Met By Wind & Solar

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

No Free Lunch: The Truly Gobsmacking Cost of Generating Offshore Wind Power

Effervescent claims that offshore wind power is cheap have fallen flat. When the rising capital cost of taking wind turbines offshore is accounted for, the power that they occasionally generate turns out to be the most expensive electricity of all, and by a very substantial margin. A couple of years back in the UK, rent […]

No Brainer: Britain’s Government Backs Nuclear Solution for Wind & Solar Chaos

It appears the penny has finally dropped. Having worked out that wind and solar will never work, the British government is now backing the development of advanced modular nuclear reactors. The idea that a modern economy can power itself on sunshine and breezes is nonsense. Not so with ever-reliable nuclear power. There are around 450 nuclear […]

Bad Medicine: Why Hydrogen Gas Ain’t No Cure For Intermittent Wind & Solar

There’s a whiff of desperation surrounding wind and solar advocates touting hydrogen gas as the next ‘green’ energy Nirvana. Renewable energy rent seekers have seized on the concept of producing hydrogen gas using wind and solar as a way of converting useless, unpredictable and unreliable electricity into something that can be used as and when […]

Tipping Point: Wind & Solar Chaos Forces Britain to Spend £1.5 Billion A Year Balancing Its Grid

If wind and solar are meant to be a ‘cure’, then it’s one that’s clearly worse than the disease. Touted everywhere as both reliable and cheap, the experience in Britain (and everywhere else for that matter) is all to the contrary. As night follows day, add chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid, and […]

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 […]

‘Green’ Cult Chief Finally ‘Sees The Light’: And It’s Powered by Nuclear Energy

  Extinction Rebellion’s pasty-faced and ghoulish-looking members aren’t renowned for their common sense on energy matters. But – in a road to Damascus moment – one of its leading lights, the aptly named Zion Lights has, indeed, seen the light. And it’s one powered by nuclear energy. Instead of dressing up like an extra in […]

Full-Steam Ahead: Nuclear Power’s Exponential Growth In Power Hungry China

No country serious about growth, industry and jobs is seriously relying on wind and solar power. China is building coal-fired power plants, hand over fist. And its efforts to build nuclear-powered plants are on the same trajectory. China Plans To Dominate The Global Nuclear Energy Push Oil Price Haley Zaremba 3 June 2020 China has […]

Want The World’s Most Expensive & Unreliable Electricity? Try Offshore Wind Power

Want to pay a fortune for power delivered in chaotic fits and spurts? Why not try offshore wind power? The true cost of chaotically intermittent wind power is staggering; the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. The capital cost of spearing these things offshore is multiples greater than doing so in some dimwitted farmer’s […]
