Nuclear’s New Dawn: Australians Get Serious About Serious Power Generation

Australians fed up with crushing power bills are talking about a nuclear powered future, like there’s no tomorrow. Having recognised that climate alarmists will never relent in their crusade against carbon dioxide gas – being a proxy for eradicating cheap, reliable and affordable coal-fired power – anyone interested in a future where hot showers and […]

Building Baseload: Keeping Australia’s Lights On Means More Coal-Fired Power – Now!

Preventing power price hikes and keeping the lights on by adding more intermittent wind and solar is like putting out fire with gasoline. These days, only the most delusional RE zealot still claims that spiralling power prices aren’t caused by chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar. The mantra has shifted to one which […]

All Black Future: Intermittent Renewables Chaos Means Longer Blackouts, Much More Often

Pinning your power hopes on the weather requires more than just a leap of faith, it requires candles, torches and a sturdy backup generator. The hapless denizens of South Australia (Australia’s wind and solar capital) are now world-renowned for their (enforced) self-reliance and stoicism. In wind and solar obsessed Australia, couple a spike in demand […]

Mission Possible: Australia’s Renewable Energy Scam Destroying Reliable & Affordable Baseload Power

  Australia is in the process of destroying what was the world’s most reliable and affordable power supply. The destruction is all down to heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Meanwhile, our major Asian trading partners, China and Japan are chewing up Australian coal and uranium as fast as we can ship it […]

Fatal Attraction: America’s Big Freeze Reveals Deadly Danger of Unreliable Renewables

Relying on intermittent wind and solar requires a kind of blind faith that power might be delivered when needed most, such as the Big Freeze that hit America’s Mid-west last month, and the heatwave that hit Victoria and South Australia, the month before that. On that score, STT’s post – Minnesota Madness: Big Freeze Exposes […]

Living in Australia? Then You’re Being Powered By Coal – So Deal With It!

If you’re reading this post in Australia, you’re doing so thanks to coal-fired power. Don’t like it? Then get off the internet. And, while you’re at it, turn off your lights, your air-conditioner, let your smart phone run flat and, just for laughs, start tackling busy intersections without the benefit of traffic lights. Wind ‘powered’ […]

The Wind God’s New Clothes: Why Weather Dependent Power Generation Can Never Work

  The wind’s fickleness is no mystery to kite flyers and sailors, yet wind power still gets pumped as if it’s cutting edge technology. Those few places attempting to run on nature’s wonder fuels have become economic debacles. One of those, RE ‘superpower’, South Australia has suffered routine load shedding for years, and rocketing power […]
