‘Green’ Energy Fantasy Unravels As Reality Grips Wind & Solar Obsessed Europe

What’s dressed up as “progress” these days increasingly looks and sounds like a drift back to our Dark Age of misery, poverty and ignorance. Anyone who still thinks wind turbines and solar panels equate with Earthly salvation, is more than just a little confused. But that’s the very point and purpose of those pushing the […]

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 […]

Subsidised Suicide: Unreliable Wind & Solar Guarantee Economic Self-Destruction

Intermittent wind and solar are a guarantee of rocketing power prices and rocketing power prices are a guarantee of economic destruction. An energy-hungry world will never satisfy its needs by pinning consumers’ hopes on the weather. But that’s the model that our political betters have been pushing over the last 20 years. How we landed […]

Manufacturing Unemployment: Net-Zero Target Will Destroy 650,000 Australian Jobs

Net-zero carbon dioxide targets are all about giving more subsidies to unreliable wind and solar which inevitably drive power prices through the roof. Increase power prices, as with any input cost, and profits inevitably diminish. Meaningful employment depends upon healthy and sustainable profits. So, as any student of that dismal science will readily tell you, […]

House of Pain: Net-Zero Emissions Target Means Rocketing Power Prices

Net-zero emissions targets are all about expanding and increasing subsidies to intermittent wind and solar. Power prices have rocketed in every country that’s seriously committed to wind and solar. The power pricing and supply calamity that’s currently panning out across Western Europe and the UK ought to register with anyone interested in reliable and affordable […]

Endless Subsidies For Unreliable Wind & Solar are an Economic Suicide Pact

Australia’s renewable energy target has subsidised wind and solar to the tune of more than $60 billion, wrecked its grid and driven power prices through the roof. Its manufacturing industry is in tatters (tens of thousands of jobs have disappeared forever); energy-intensive mineral processors, such as aluminium, copper lead and zinc smelters are on life […]

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 […]

Suicide Pact: Subsidised Wind & Solar Designed to Wreck First World Economies

One of China’s principal strengths is its ability to harness cheap and reliable nuclear and coal-fired power. Contrast that with Australia’s energy policies deliberately hostile to coal and nuclear power, and it’s hard not to conclude that our political betters are in cahoots with the CCP. The Roman Empire didn’t collapse because the barbarians to […]

Power Politics: Want to Win Elections? Then Don’t Ignore Spiralling Electricity Prices

With Biden and the Squad in the White House, the Californian experience of spiralling power prices will soon be delivered to all Americans, thanks to a raft of suicidal renewable energy policies that are about to be landed across the USA. The energy hungry businesses and industries that Trump brought home, will soon start packing […]

Endless $Billions: Counting The Hidden Cost of Renewables on Electricity Prices

Uncovering the true costs of intermittent wind and solar is like playing hide and seek while blindfolded. In Australia, the subsidies doled out under the Federal Government’s Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target and its domestic cousin, the Small-Scale Renewable Energy Scheme, that covers rooftop solar and other household rorts, adds at least $4 billion a year […]
