Avoiding Disaster: Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle Signals Warning to Energy Rich Americans

  Laconic crocodile hunters aside, Australia doesn’t often register in the US of A, but its self-inflicted renewable energy fiasco has clearly placed it on the American radar. News of wind ‘powered’ South Australia’s statewide blackout in September 2016 rendered it an international laughing stock. It also set it up as an example of what […]

Never Ending Story: Texans Forced to Shell Out $Billions More in Wind Power Subsidies

One thing you’ll never, ever hear from wind power outfits is a call to cut the subsidies that sustain them. Remarkably, whether in Germany, Australia, Ontario or Texas, renewables rent seekers all speak the same language. When talk turns to subsidies, you’ll only ever hear words like ‘more’.

New Ice Age Begins: Ice Chunks Thrown from Wind Turbines Threaten Lives, Smashing Buildings and Passing Trucks

For a few centuries in human history, windmills were the only game in town. Then, in the 18th Century, the captains of British scientific and engineering endeavour harnessed thermal power, […]

Deadly Cool: Wind Turbine Throws Ice Chunks Into US College

  Throwing 10 tonne blades hundreds of metres, and chunks thereof, for kilometres isn’t the limit of the wholly unnecessary risk created by giant wind turbines. No, in cooler climes, neighbours are trained in the art of dodging lethal flying chunks of ice, too. To the uninitiated, ‘ice throw’ (another wind industry euphemism) might sound […]

Cuomo’s Curse: Wind Power Obsession Leaves New Yorkers with Rocketing Power Bills

If wind power really is cheap and getting cheaper all the time, why is it that every State or Nation ‘powered’ by the weather is suffering power prices magnitudes higher than those that continue merrily chugging away on coal, gas or nuclear power? South Australia, Denmark and Germany suffer the highest power prices in the […]

Community Backlash Against Big Wind: Massachusetts Residents’ Unanimous Vote Blocks Future Wind Projects

  Remember all the guff about rural communities falling over themselves to get into bed with big wind? No? STT has forgotten those well-polished propaganda pieces, too. Watching reasonable people turn against wind power with a vengeance is one of life’s inevitable events – like herds of hungry Wildebeests prowling the Serengeti in search of […]
