Don’t Follow The Leader: How To Avoid Britain’s Wind & Solar Energy Disaster (Just Stop Now)

Britain’s power consumers (or what’s left of them) are brewing for a full-scale revolt. 12 months ago, the average annual energy bill was £1,400 ($2,400). Energy industry analyst Cornwall Insight forecasts that the British price cap will skyrocket and the average annual bill will reach £3,582 ($6,177) next month. By January, it predicts it will […]

The Great Wind Power Swindle: Households & Businesses Being Crushed By Record Power Bills

If wind power is cheap, why does every country obsessed with it suffer rocketing power prices? The game of smoke and mirrors played by renewable energy rent-seekers, has enabled them to avoid any critical scrutiny of the role heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar play in driving power prices into orbit. A decade of […]

Murder – Not Suicide: Europe’s Renewable Energy Policy Threatens Lives & Livelihoods

When it comes to Europe’s wind and solar disaster, ignorance is no longer a defence.  As STT has been pointing out for over a decade, the power pricing and supply calamity that follows any serious effort to rely on wind and solar is the only thing ‘inevitable’ about the so-called ‘transition’. What’s happened in Germany, […]

‘Ministry of Plenty’ Declares Weather-Driven Power Rationing All For The Greater Good

In Orwell’s 1984, the Ministry of Plenty was quick to herald any positive statistic, however bogus. Standards of living were always rising; as was the production of food, shoelaces and ill-fitting boots. Triumphant announcements were made about the chocolate ration increasing, simultaneously that the ration was, in fact, being reduced. An example of what the […]

Renewables Regret: Power-Starved Europeans Rue Their Governments’ Wind & Solar Obsession

Eating cold baked beans in the dark might not be everyone’s idea of fun, but power-starved Europeans are getting used to that kind of indignity. German households and businesses are already suffering Europe’s highest power prices; since Putin’s Ukrainian adventure began, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per […]

Suicidal Sleepwalk: Time to Stop Emulating Europe’s Wind & Solar Obsession

As Germans and Brits stock up on woollen blankets and candles, the world has a chance to avoid the perfectly avoidable. In both cases, an obsession with chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar has them scrambling for reliable energy – as if thousands of lives depend on it – which they literally do. […]

Transition to Poverty: Britain Being Crushed By Staggering Cost of Wind & Solar Obsession

What does the ‘inevitable’ wind and solar transition look like? Try power-starved Britain, where power prices are out of control, with much, much worse to come. Last October, the average annual energy bill was £1,400 ($2,400). Energy industry analyst Cornwall Insight forecasts that the British price cap will skyrocket and the average annual bill will […]

Oh So ‘Cheap’!: Power Prices Set to Quadruple in Wind & Solar ‘Powered’ Britain

The ultimate cost of renewable energy virtue signalling is truly crippling, wind and solar-obsessed Britain is a case in point. Power prices have doubled over the span of a few months and will quadruple as energy demand spikes again in winter. Attempting to ditch its coal-fired power plants (and converting them to run on wood […]

Time to Ditch Meaningless Medieval Wind Power & Embrace Modern Nuclear Power

Wind power was abandoned centuries ago, for pretty obvious reasons, known to kite flyers and sailors, since the beginning of time. Sure, in medieval times, when there was no alternative, harnessing nature’s energy make sense. But not now. It was coal that dragged Europe out of the Dark Ages, by providing around-the-clock power, not windmills. […]

Subsidised Renewables Revolt: Entrenched Energy Poverty Source of Next Revolution

Power prices driven through the roof by subsidised and unreliable wind and solar means electricity is out of reach for thousands of struggling households. Reliable and affordable electricity is at the heart of modern, socially stable societies. Deprive the masses of something that has been taken for granted for generations, and get set for serious […]
