Want Safe, Reliable & Affordable Electricity? Then Start Thinking Nuclear, Right Now

The French get 70-80% of their power from nuclear plants and haven’t suffered so much as a scratch since they started in 1962. By contrast, the wind industry (which really only got off the ground in the late 1990s and still generates a trifling amount of electricity) has clocked up around 200 fatalities, (eg, see above) […]

Real Power, Real Jobs: Unions Demand Nuclear Power and End to Offshore Wind

Among the myriad of myths propounded by the wind industry sits the promise of millions of groovy ‘green’ jobs purportedly on offer. In this post STT covered a very detailed study from Wisconsin on the effect of rising power prices (caused by massive subsidies diverted to wind and solar) has on real jobs. Based on actual […]

From Little Things Big Things Grow: Australia’s Nuclear Powered Future Starts With SMRs

STT promotes nuclear power because it works: safe, affordable and reliable it’s the perfect foil for those obsessed about carbon dioxide gas – because it doesn’t generate any, while generating power on demand. One of the feeble ‘arguments’ against it, is that nuclear power plants are of such vast scale that they take longer to […]

So Simple: Fixing Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Crisis Easy As One, Two, Three

Solving Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity means killing subsidies for wind and solar and kickstarting nuclear power, by removing the ban that prohibits it. As Rafe Champion details below, there are three easy steps that would resolve the current debacle: killing off the subsidies for intermittent power generation; adding a capacity market to the […]

Nuclear’s New Dawn: Small Modular Reactors Offer Ever-Reliable CO2-Free Power

STT promotes nuclear power because it works: safe, affordable and reliable it’s the perfect foil for those obsessed about carbon dioxide gas – because it doesn’t generate any, while generating power on demand – unlike the unreliables, wind and solar. One of the feeble ‘arguments’ against it, is that nuclear power plants are of such […]

Rank Hypocrisy: Climate Warriors Not Promoting Nuclear Power Simply Can’t Be Serious

In a post Covid world, anyone railing about carbon dioxide gas and not promoting nuclear power sounds positively unhinged. If CO2 really was about to destroy the planet, Extinction Rebellion, Greta and her worshippers would be talking about switching to nuclear power like their lives depended on it. Instead, for reasons that escape the logical […]

Jobs First: Australian Workers Unite to Slam Unreliable Wind & Solar and Push for Reliable & Affordable Nuclear Power

Workers unions have worked out that the key to reversing soaring unemployment is reliable and affordable power. One of Australia’s most powerful, the CFMEU has slammed chaotic wind and solar as too costly and unreliable to power anything – except virtue signalling egos. Instead, itys Victorian Mining and Energy Division has laid down an altogether […]

No Brainer: Britain’s Government Backs Nuclear Solution for Wind & Solar Chaos

It appears the penny has finally dropped. Having worked out that wind and solar will never work, the British government is now backing the development of advanced modular nuclear reactors. The idea that a modern economy can power itself on sunshine and breezes is nonsense. Not so with ever-reliable nuclear power. There are around 450 nuclear […]

No Contest: Never-Reliable Wind & Solar Can Never Match Ever-Reliable Nuclear

Wind power might be ‘free’, but try purchasing it, at any price, when the wind stops blowing; likewise with solar power when the sun drops over the horizon. Comparing weather dependent wind generation with sources available, around-the-clock, irrespective of the weather, is a game played by intellectual pygmies. There is, of course, no comparison. Good […]

Michael Shellenberger: Let’s Get Serious, Let’s Go Nuclear

  Very few climate warriors bother to advocate for nuclear power, which is a fair indication of what’s driving them. If CO2 really was about to destroy the planet, Extinction Rebellion, Greta and her worshippers would be talking about switching to nuclear power like their lives depended on it. Instead, for reasons that escape the […]
