Nuclear: Time to Back The Safest System Power Generation Of Them All

The renewable energy cult keeps telling us that the only way forward is backwards: ie a life dependent upon the time of day and the weather. Of course, if anyone wants hot showers and cold beer, wind and solar haven’t a hope of delivering them on cue. It’s passing strange that the same crowd that […]

Green New Deal = Pointless Posturing: Joe Biden’s Trillion Dollar Wind & Solar Boondoggle

The only obvious point to Biden’s ‘Green’ New Deal is lining the pockets of crony capitalists and keeping lobbying rent seekers happy. Hundreds of $billions more are set to be squandered on utterly pointless wind and solar. A point which ought to be pretty obvious to Americans, after millions experienced the mass blackouts suffered across […]

Flotilla of Furious Fishermen Blockade Wind Developer’s Efforts to Destroy Fishing Grounds & Much More

Be it farmers or fishermen, locals soon recognise that the charlatans pushing wind power couldn’t care less about their lives and livelihoods. Fishermen are a fearless and tenacious bunch, renowned for their salty language. Back in July 2018, hopeful wind developers planning to destroy fishing grounds off the New Jersey coast copped a taste of […]

Renewable Energy Targets: Unaffordable & Unreliable Power Threatens Every Mineral Processing Job

The apparent object of renewable energy targets is to make power so expensive and unreliable that eventually no one will bother to use it. At least that’s what occurred in Australia, thanks to its Federal government’s Renewable Energy Target, which will redirect more than $60 billion to chaotically intermittent wind and solar over the life […]

Germany’s Renewables ‘Transition’ Means World’s Highest Power Prices & Power Rationing

Germany’s wind and solar transition aka the “Energiewende” is a monstrous debacle: power prices have rocketed out-of-control and wintertime power rationing is the new normal, thanks to the combination of solar panels plastered in ice, frozen wind turbines and dead calm frigid weather. Wind and solar obsessed Germans are now paying record prices for electricity. […]

Climate Warriors Furious Over India & China’s Insatiable Thirst for Coal-Fired Power

For years now, we’ve been told that “coal is dead” and that India and China will plump for wind and solar, instead of coal-fired power. Well, that’s the line being run by renewable energy rent seekers and wind and solar zealots around the globe. It is, of course, complete bunkum. With hundreds of millions still […]

Regressive Renewables: California’s Wind & Solar Obsession Crushing the Poor & Vulnerable

Californian punk outfit, the Dead Kennedys sang about killing the poor. California’s renewables obsession is doing just that: power prices are now well out of reach for the working poor and its minorities are most affected. Over the last 20 years, Californian policymakers have shovelled billions in subsidies to intermittent wind and solar. The result: […]

Vale: Dick Paltridge – South Australia’s Champion Wind Farm Warrior

Richard ‘Dick’ Paltridge was a giant of a man; physically imposing, stoic and taciturn, his dogged pursuit of what was right places him in the STT Hall of Fame. Dick shuffled off this mortal coil on 23 March this year, leaving a legacy of peace and tranquillity in his patch of paradise, Allendale situated in […]

Arson About: Giant Industrial Wind Turbines Sparking Wildfires Across USA

People fretting about global warming clearly haven’t experienced a wildfire sparked by a self-immolating wind turbine. An out-of-control wildfire is a terrifying experience. Self-incinerating wind turbines have joined arsonists and lightning strikes as the cause of that terror. Whereas lightning is an unavoidable natural occurrence and arsonists live in fear of being caught and punished, […]

Why Subsidising Intermittent Wind & Solar Drives Power Prices Through the Roof

Perplexed as to why your power bill just doubled? Then you’ll be pleased to know the answer is simple: massively subsidised wind and solar. Statisticians get excited when they can prove causation instead of mere correlation, which often depends upon the number of observations of a particular event of interest. With dozens of countries and […]
