Furious Fishermen Sue To Stop Offshore Wind Industry Wrecking Fishing Grounds

Always making more enemies than friends, the wind industry is being sued by America’s fishermen to stop it wrecking their fishing grounds and livelihoods. Having ridden roughshod over communities on land for the best part of a generation, the wind industry has been doing so offshore, for more than a decade. But, when it comes […]

World’s Woeful Wind Power Output Spells Doom For Renewable Energy Rent Seekers

Don McLean’s American Pie was all about the day the music died; 2021 was all about the year that the wind industry died. Its well-worn claim that wind power is just a heartbeat away from replacing meaningful power sources – such as coal, gas and nuclear – took a battering across the globe last year. […]

Winter’s Inevitable Wind & Solar Output Collapses Guarantee More Deadly Blackouts

As another northern winter bites, it’s worth revisiting the deadly renewable energy calamity that hit America’s heartland back in February. Hundreds died in freezing homes, left without electricity thanks to hundreds of iced-up wind turbines, left frozen solid, and breathless frigid conditions that meant the remainder delivered no power, in any event. Solar fared no […]

Boris Johnson’s Bizarre Persistence With Unreliable Wind Power Defies All Logic & Reason

Insanity is doing that same thing over and over again and expecting different results, which is why STT raises an eyebrow (or two) at Boris Johnson’s persistent love affair with heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind power. His belief that taking it all offshore will make a difference, only confirms that this man has a […]

Monumental Design Fail: Industrial Wind Turbines Simply Can’t Handle High Winds

When the weather turns nasty, giant industrial wind turbines simply turn off. When there’s no wind, they produce nothing; when winds hit gale force, they produce nothing. It’s as if their designers included Goldilocks, the porridge thief who wanted things “just right” and snubbed her nose at all that wasn’t. Modern industrial wind turbines do not […]

Enough is Enough: After Nearly 40 Years It’s Time to Slash Massive Subsidies to Wind & Solar

One thing you’ll never, ever hear from the crony capitalists profiting from wind and solar is a call to cut the subsidies that sustain them. Remarkably, whether in Germany, Australia, the States or Europe renewables rent seekers all speak the same language. When talk turns to subsidies, you’ll only ever hear words like ‘more’. Challenge […]

Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Are The World’s Most Expensive (Occasional) Power Sources

The Sun and wind might be free, but wind and solar power are by far the most expensive power sources, of them all. Diffuse and dilute – entirely dependent on the weather (wind – in the case of wind power, and cloud cover in the case of solar) and, in solar’s case, where the Sun […]

Bloody Expensive: Counting Staggering True Cost of Worthless Wind Power

Wind power has no economic value simply because it cannot be delivered as and when power consumers need it. Hence the massive and seemingly endless subsidies to a power source which is meaningless and, accordingly, worthless. In the absence of subsidies, there would be no wind industry, at all. But worthless does not mean ‘cheap’ […]

Grand Betrayal: How The Climate Industrial Complex Conspires to Destroy Your Economic Future

The Glasgow gabfest is over, but the grand betrayal has only just begun: in cahoots with the Climate Industrial Complex, Western governments have consigned your economic future to history – and it’s a dark and dismal one, where rocketing energy prices will destroy once prosperous nations and prohibit prosperity in those aspiring for it. A […]

Short-Changed: $Billions Spent On Wind & Solar Return Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

All cost and no benefit, chaotically intermittent wind and solar are proven net losers. And yet, the Climate Industrial Complex keeps telling us that the unreliables are central to ‘saving’ the planet. On that score, rather than coming straight out with it, crony capitalists and political elites use the euphemism ‘climate action’. What they really […]
