Wind & Solar Built On Endless Lies, Broken Promises & Massive Subsidies

The greatest con job in history started with the idea that you can run an economy on sunshine and breezes. Sequentially, inevitably, every myth and lie put forward by renewable energy rent seekers and their shrinking band of acolytes gets busted and exposed. Lines like: wind power is cheaper than coal (it isn’t); the wind […]

Germany’s Renewable Energy Disaster – Part 1: Wind & Solar Deemed ‘Technological Failures’

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle. German power prices have rocketed; blackouts and load shedding are the norm; and idyllic rural communities are now industrial wastelands (see above). Hundreds of billions of euros have been squandered on subsidies to wind and solar, […]

Wind & Solar Subsidies Caused Australia’s Power Crisis: Salvation Means Slashing Them Now

The adults have just taken control of Australia’s renewable energy debacle: the ACCC’s investigation into RE subsidies and power market gaming spells the end for subsidised wind and solar. As STT has pointed out on more than one occasion: when a policy is unsustainable it will either collapse under its own imponderable weight, or its […]

US Judge Delivers Verdict: Intermittent Renewables Will Never Replace Coal, Gas & Nuclear

  A class of miserable human-haters detests the idea that energy should be freely available, to all. Instead, they go out of their way to promote costly, unreliable and intermittent wind and solar: a pair that will only ever deliver power at the margins; which depend upon massive, never-ending subsidies; cost a fortune to deliver; […]

Wind Power: World’s Greatest Joke – UK Left Powerless During the ‘Big Calm’

The greatest joke ever played on the world is the idea that the wind can – and will soon completely – power modern economies. When the wind disappears for days and even weeks on end, those that promote it tend to get twitchy and change the subject. Sometimes it’s mutterings about mega-batteries (that don’t exist) […]

State of Delusion: Push to Kill-Off Arizona’s Nuclear Plant & Go 50% Wind & Solar

  Believing that wind and solar can power your economy means sacrificing our good friends, logic and reason. It also demands ignorance of the most basic of facts: eg, sunset and calm weather. The inevitable consequence of those daily occurrences on wind and solar power generation ought to be apparent to all but those suffering […]

Australia Enters Third World: Chaotic Delivery of Wind & Solar Forces Industrial Users Off Grid

Dictating when and if power consumers get electricity was once the preserve of communist dictatorships (think the USSR, North Korea and Cuba). Thanks to a maniacal obsession with intermittent wind and solar, Australia now sits comfortably in the same dismal ranks. No longer can industrial users expect to have power according to their business plans […]
