No More Lip Service: The Time for Safe, Reliable & Affordable Nuclear is Right Now

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target directs more than $7 billion a year in subsidies to wind and solar and is doing precisely what it was designed to do: namely, destroying Australia’s reliable and affordable power supplies. At the political level, the scramble is now on to keep coal-fired power plants up and running, wait for it, […]

Power Shock: Renewables Meltdown Leaves Australians With Power Shortages & Crippling Power Bills

The erratic and occasional delivery of wind and solar has sent wholesale power prices into orbit and major energy users are simply being chopped from the grid when wind and/or solar output hits the floor. Consumers have just been hit with retail power bills which are between 20 and 30% higher than the same time last […]

No Contest: Coal-Fired Power Outright Winner In Reliable & Affordable Energy Wars

China, India and Indonesia are building hundreds of coal-fired power plants because they deliver electricity all day, every day at prices that everyone can afford. The reason for backing coal-fired power is that simple. And yet thanks to a mixture of mercenary self-interest on the part of renewable energy rent seekers and the wilful ignorance […]

Some ‘Transition’: Subsidised Wind & Solar Guaranteed to Send Power Prices Off the Charts

Renewable energy rent seekers keep telling us that our power bills will inevitably fall because wind and solar power are ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time. In the lead up to the Federal election in May, Labor’s Anthony Albanese promised that all Australian households would see a $275 cut to their power bills, as […]

Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Calamity All Down To Wind & Solar Chaos

  Australia’s unfolding power pricing and supply calamity reveals just how critical our coal-fired power plants are if we want power as and when we need it. Sure, there’s a choice between virtue signalling about your love of wind and solar and visceral hatred of “dirty” coal-fired power. But allow the deluded wind and sun […]

Nuclear Power: Perfect Cure For Wind & Solar Driven Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s power market is in a diabolical mess: massive subsidies to intermittent wind and solar have undermined reliable and affordable power supplies, sending Germany and Denmark’s power prices through the roof (see above). Since Vladimir Putin’s adventure in Ukraine, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per kWh. […]

Dumb & Dumber: Continued Wind & Solar Obsession Defies All Logic & Reason

The renewable energy pit deepens, but there’s no indication the dolts in charge will ever stop digging. The, by now obvious, consequences of attempting to rely on sunshine and breezes include another annual power price increase of over 20% this month and routine power rationing by postcode. In response, there’s a growing groundswell of hostility […]

‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar Transition’s Inevitable Collision Course With Reality

The deluded few still promoting the total transition to wind and solar as ‘inevitable’ are being pounded by reality, on a daily basis. Dead calm weather is a thing; sunset is a thing. Both phenomena are inevitable, ergo, there is no way wind and solar can ever amount to meaningful power sources. Proponents have been […]

‘Green’ Energy Suicide: Australia’s Anti-Nuclear Power Stance Beggars Belief

Australia’s politics is bereft of leadership and there’s no better example thereof than the failure to advance nuclear power in this country. Notwithstanding the unfolding power pricing and supply calamity – driven by chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar – its new Labor Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, more Elmer Fudd than Bob Hawke, […]

Hitch Your Power Needs to Sunshine & Breezes – Get Ready for Regular Disappointment

Weather-dependent wind and sunshine-dependent solar are the prime cause of Australia’s electricity pricing and supply debacle. So much is obvious to anybody who bothers to go beyond the drivel pitched up by the MSM and the politicos responsible for the disaster. Over the last decade, STT has laid it out in pictures, such as the […]
