Intermittent Wind & Solar Power No Match For Around-the-Clock Nuclear Power

Part-time power is worse than having no power at all: our industrial heartbeat and the timing of daily chores hasn’t been dictated by the weather for more than a century. Harnessing thermal power set us on the road to the modern, ordered and (largely) civil society we presently enjoy. For a refresher course Google up […]

Nuclear Waste: Nothing Like the Problem Imagined by Anti-Nuke Squad

Nuclear power is the only stand-alone generation system that does not emit carbon dioxide gas during the process. And it works – 24 x 7, whatever the weather. Which is one reason why wind and solar rent seekers hate it. Beat ups about the risks from radiation and nuclear-nonevents – such as the damage suffered […]

No-Brainer: Nuclear Power Only Solution For Those Fretting About Carbon Dioxide Gas

Nuclear power is the only stand-alone power generation source that does not generate carbon dioxide gas in the process. So why is it that those fretting about human-generated carbon dioxide gas aren’t screaming its merits from the rooftops? There are plenty among them who fit the category of ‘human hater’ – the kind who see […]

Nuclear: Time to Back The Safest System Power Generation Of Them All

The renewable energy cult keeps telling us that the only way forward is backwards: ie a life dependent upon the time of day and the weather. Of course, if anyone wants hot showers and cold beer, wind and solar haven’t a hope of delivering them on cue. It’s passing strange that the same crowd that […]

Nuclear Nudge: Everyone Talking About Nuclear Power After America’s Deadly Big Freeze

Shattered dreams, dashed hopes and heavy hearts are the order of the day amongst wind and solar acolytes – thanks to the avoidable energy disasters playing out in America and Germany, during a bitter northern hemisphere winter. Sure, there are a desperate few still hanging on to the hope that it will all blow over, […]

Where Never Reliable Wind & Solar Perpetually Fail, Ever Reliable Nuclear Power Just Works

Renewable energy rent seekers hate nuclear power for the same reasons we promote it: it works 24 x 365, whatever the weather and delivers power that people can afford. Anyone claiming that carbon dioxide gas is destroying the planet and not promoting nuclear power simply can’t be taken seriously. Neither can anyone still suggesting that […]

Reason Removed: Remaining Opposition to Nuclear Power Product of Fake News Fear Mongers

There are plenty of examples of the mass media using hyperbole to whip up hysteria, but the unjustified fear of nuclear radiation is a stand out. Sure, we’ve been cajoled and berated into a fear-filled frenzy about a Chinese virus. But that’s likely to pass as quickly as humans develop their natural immunity to any […]

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 […]
