Wind & Solar Fantasy Unplugged: 100% RE Means Total Economic Destruction

There’s something almost comical when RE zealots try to outdo each other. Those that worship wind and solar are deluded, to be sure. However, those claiming that nature’s wonder fuels can deliver 100% of our power needs are truly ‘touched’. At a physical level it is, of course, possible. But building TWhs worth of pumped […]

If Wind and Sunshine are Free, Why Is It That Wind & Solar Power Are So Expensive?

Facts tend to flummox renewable energy zealots, especially the way adding wind and solar sends power prices into orbit (see above). After all, they keep telling us that the wind and sun are absolutely free, and getting cheaper all the time. Here’s America’s top green, Michael Shellenberger taking an axe to another RE furphy. A […]

Poorest Families Left Powerless: Britain Squanders £100 Billion on Renewable Energy

Subsidised wind and solar guarantee rocketing power prices, leaving plenty of pensioners and the poor powerless. You know you’re dealing with an ideologue when your antagonist couldn’t care less about the vulnerable and impoverished that drift along at the very edge of society.

No Retreat & No Surrender: Wind Industry’s Victims Left Furious at Government Inaction

In Australia, the wind industry has the so-called ‘Wind Farm Commissioner’ to help bury them. Andrew Dyer has done everything the wind industry has asked him to do; principally his ‘task’ involves ignoring […]

Wind Power Output Collapses Send Power Prices into Orbit: The World’s Biggest Joke Just Got Serious

Intermittent wind and solar are a natural guarantee of grid chaos and rocketing power prices. The debacle that started in the renewable energy ‘superpower’, also known as South Australia has broken the border and is spreading fast. New South Wales is now being treated to a lesson on how increasing reliance on the ‘unreliables’ inevitably […]

Small Modular Reactors: Pint-Sized Performers Add to Long-Term Nuclear Solution

  STT promotes nuclear power because it works: safe, affordable and reliable it’s the perfect foil for those obsessed about carbon dioxide gas – because it doesn’t generate any, while generating power on demand. One of the feeble ‘arguments’ against it, is that nuclear power plants are of such vast scale that they take longer […]

RE Regrets: Germany Laments its ‘Transition’ to Wind & Solar

When it comes to wind and solar, no country went harder or faster than Germany. As they say though, act in haste, repent at your leisure. A grid on the brink of collapse and rocketing power prices is all that Germans have to show for their obsession about powering themselves with daily sunshine and occasional […]
