Atomic Ascendancy: Australians Now See Nuclear Power as the Natural Choice

  All of a sudden, any Australian with half a brain is talking about nuclear power generation. Not so long ago, only the bravest would utter the ‘N’ word out loud. Howled down by the anti-nuke brigade, in the beginning, and later berated by zealots pushing heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar, those […]

Nuclear Necessity: Solution to Australia’s Energy Debacle Means Nurturing Nuclear Now

Until recently it was a brave MP who dared to drop the ‘N’ word in public, now they’re shouting about nuclear power from the rooftops. STT thinks a couple of things might be responsible for the rapid shift in attitudes. As STT followers are no doubt aware, Australia is the only G20 nation to not […]

Reality Check: Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar No Substitute for Ever-Reliable Coal-Fired Power

30 years, $trillions in subsidies and yet the combined output of wind and solar amounts to little more than a rounding error. Most sane adults would call that a monumental F-A-I-L. Meanwhile, ever reliable coal-fired power just keeps on delivering, where never-reliable wind and solar deliver nothing but a subsidy stream to their rent-seeking owners. […]

Nuclear No-Brainer: Why Australia’s Ban on Nuclear Power Generation Defies Common Sense & Logic

  Every day we’re bombarded with warnings about CO2 incinerating the planet, wiping out entire species and otherwise spoiling our day. For those subscribing to the ‘end is nigh’ scenario, all that seems fair enough. But what doesn’t stand much scrutiny is the fact that the planet’s doomsayers run silent on the need for nuclear […]

‘RE-ligion for Rich People’: Green Guru – Michael Shellenberger Slams Hopelessly Unreliable Wind & Solar

  Environmentalists ready to slam never reliable wind and solar and back ever reliable nuclear are rare birds, indeed. Michael Shellenberger is such an animal. Lauded by environmentalists in the US, Shellenberger is not so much crusading for the environment, but waging a war against the hypocritical and pompous who drive global warming alarmism; a […]

Power to the People: Australian Voters Demand Reliable & Affordable Electricity & Coal Just Keeps on Delivering

The 2019 Federal Election was billed as a referendum on ‘Climate Change’. The Green/Labor Alliance promised an all wind and sun powered future, starting with a 50% RET and a crippling carbon dioxide gas tax, dressed up as a 45% CO2 emissions reduction target. Every political pundit from Perth to Penrith picked Labor to win […]

Crunch Time: Australia’s Renewable Energy Rent-Seekers Suicidal After Coalition Victory

  The ‘shock’ Federal election result has left RE energy rent seekers reeling. What was meant to be a Green/Labor landslide – with the promise that subsidies to wind and solar would double and be extended until kingdom come – returned not only the Liberal/National Coalition to power, but left the Energy Minister, Angus Taylor […]
