Renewables Rewind: Energy Crisis Causes Outbreak of Sanity With Push for Coal-Fired Power

With rocketing power prices and much worse to come, Australia’s renewable energy debacle has finally started to sharpen political thinking. Panic has set in, which, while not an ideal environment to form policy, will do in a pinch. Especially, when the alternative is doing nothing and watching an energy superpower turn itself into an economic […]

US Judge Delivers Verdict: Intermittent Renewables Will Never Replace Coal, Gas & Nuclear

  A class of miserable human-haters detests the idea that energy should be freely available, to all. Instead, they go out of their way to promote costly, unreliable and intermittent wind and solar: a pair that will only ever deliver power at the margins; which depend upon massive, never-ending subsidies; cost a fortune to deliver; […]

Wind Power Output Collapses Send Power Prices into Orbit: The World’s Biggest Joke Just Got Serious

Intermittent wind and solar are a natural guarantee of grid chaos and rocketing power prices. The debacle that started in the renewable energy ‘superpower’, also known as South Australia has broken the border and is spreading fast. New South Wales is now being treated to a lesson on how increasing reliance on the ‘unreliables’ inevitably […]

Looking for Reasons Why Wind Power Can Never Work? Here’s the Top 21

It doesn’t take a genius to work out that wind power is the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time. All it takes is a little cognitive power and a sense of inquiry. Once people work out that they’ve been conned, they never turn back. In our travels we’ve met plenty who’ve started out […]

Australia’s Renewable Energy Chaos Has Investors Clamouring For Coal-Fired Power Plants

  Remember all those stories about wind power replacing coal? No? STT has forgotten them, too. An idiotic obsession with wind and solar power, has sent power prices rocketing and placed Australia’s once perfectly reliable power grid on the brink of collapse. That those states connected to the Eastern Grid (QLD, NSW, SA, Victoria and […]

Desperate Measures: Renewables Rush Leaves Australians Scrambling for Reliable Power

Act in haste, repent at your leisure: Australia’s self-inflicted renewable energy fiasco has sent power prices through the roof and all but destroyed its once reliable power supplies. Over our Southern Summer, grid managers have been tearing their hair out, as they attempt to keep the lights on in South Australia, Victoria and New South […]

Brits Squander £360 million Paying Wind Power Outfits to NOT Produce Power

Britain is suffering from the same diabolical wind turbine syndrome that wrecked South Australia, Germany, Spain and the like. However, with construction of the Hinkley Point nuclear power plant now underway, it seems that the Brits have finally worked out that you cannot hope to run an economy on wintery bluster and summer breezes. The […]

Australia’s Rocketing Prices & Looming Summer Blackouts Ensure Coal-Fired Power has a Long Way to Run

  Reports of the ‘death of coal’ have been greatly exaggerated. Around 80% of Australia’s electricity comes from coal-fired plant; with most of the balance from gas and hydro, in that order. No amount of statistical finessing from the wind and solar industries can budge their presently risible contributions to Australia’s power needs above more […]

Weather Dependent Wind Power: Leaves Hurricane Victims Powerless

Oh, the irony. In one breath we’re told that the climate is changing so rapidly – although, these days, most climate alarmists don’t seem prepared to lay a bet on whether things are getting hotter or colder – that carpeting the world in wind turbines and solar panels – which cultists believe will solve the […]

Wind Industry Demands End to Subsidies: Wind Power Now Cheaper than Coal & Gas-Fired Power

Admit it, we had you there for a moment. No, our headline is definitely fake news. However, if the wind industry was taken at its word (unlikely) then the subsidies would have ended years ago. The likes of AGL, the Clean Energy Council and a whole band of wind worshipping lunatics have been telling us […]
