Dead Calm Weather Exposes The Great ‘Green’ Energy Lie Almost Every Single Day

If you believe that the ‘cheque’s in the mail’, ‘the wind is always blowing somewhere’ and ‘the sun never sets’, you’ll believe anything. STT is dedicated to exposing the lie that we are well on our way to an inevitable transition to an all-wind and sun-powered future. What’s depicted above – courtesy of Aneroid Energy – […]

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 […]

House of Cards: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Delivers Total Energy System Collapse

A house of cards has more structural integrity than a power generation system that depends on sunshine and breezes. Australia’s unfolding renewable energy debacle is a case in point. Total daily collapses solar output (aka ‘sunset’) and total collapses in wind power output (aka ‘calm weather’) are at the heart of a power pricing and […]

Blackout Nation: Australians Latest Victims of Subsidised Wind & Solar Chaos

That Australia’s Eastern Grid is on the brink of collapse with a complete ‘system black’ on the cards comes as no surprise. The $7 billion in annual RET subsidies pocketed by wind and solar generators were designed to allow them to underbid Australia’s reliable and affordable coal-fired generators, destroying their profitability and, ultimately, driving them […]

Wind Power: The Complete Joke That Just Isn’t Funny Anymore

If it were only intended as a joke, wind power would be hilarious. However, the power pricing and supply calamity that follows any attempt to rely on sunshine and breezes tend to sober things up. Random 3,000 to 4,000 MW wind power output collapses are at the heart of Australia’s self-inflicted renewable energy debacle. The […]

Power Cuts & Rocketing Prices All Part of Australia’s Wonderful Wind & Solar ‘Transition’

Australians are getting a bitter taste of their ‘inevitable’ renewable energy transition: power rationing and rocketing power prices. What’s depicted above is the weather-dependent power generation chaos at the heart of Australia’s renewable energy-driven power pricing and supply calamity. The dismal data – courtesy of Aneroid Energy – is the output delivered by Australian wind […]

Prices Double: Obsession With Subsidised Wind & Solar Causes Runaway Power Prices

Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity is the product of policies deliberately designed to wreck reliable and affordable power supplies. Massive and seemingly endless subsidies to chaotically intermittent wind and solar have done what they were designed to do: drive the owners of reliable coal-fired power generators to the wall, by allowing wind and solar […]

No Mystery: Calm Weather & Sunset Root Cause of Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

The relationship between weather-dependent wind/sunshine dependent solar and rocketing power prices is crystal clear, so too the post ‘transition’ phenomenon of power rationing caused by sunset and/or calm weather. Australia isn’t alone in experiencing a power pricing and supply calamity, all its very own making; Germans, Danes and Californians have enjoyed much the same and […]

Why Heavily Subsidised & Utterly Unreliable Wind & Solar Will Wreck Your Economy

The wind and solar cult will never admit it, but coal-fired power is the backbone of Australia’s electricity grid. Without it, this country would descend into Stone Age chaos in next to no time. With the announcement that another reliable coal-fired power plant will be shuttered in a few years’ time, the response from our […]

Guilty: Intermittent Wind & Solar Responsible For Global Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s ongoing wind drought (and corresponding wind power output collapse) is a wake-up call for anyone vaguely concerned about energy supplies. Starting in September last year and running for weeks on end, total collapses in wind power output across Western Europe and the UK, forced a wholesale rethink of the maniacal reliance upon wind and […]
