Persistently Pathetic: Routine Total Collapses Mean Wind Power Remains A Total Joke

No matter how many wind turbines get added to the grid, when calm weather sets in, their combined output amounts to a doughnut. Europe has more on and offshore wind turbines per square kilometre than any other continent. And yet it continues to suffer month’s long wind droughts, such as the one that started in […]

Utter Madness: Trivial Energy Return For $Billions Squandered On Unreliable Wind Power

Despite the countless $billions in subsidies thrown at wind power, its contribution to world energy demand remains an accounting rounding error. Talk about wind power making a meaningful contribution to electricity supplies is pure delusion. And yet, those that pretend to govern us openly conspire with the rent-seekers stealing from us in their joint efforts […]

Fake News: Debunking Claims That Britain’s Set to Light Up Europe With Wind Power

Never short on audacity, Britain’s wind industry is now peddling the myth that it’ll soon be lighting up all of Europe. Notwithstanding the fact that it was forced to fire up its coal-fired power plants to overcome the Big Calm in the last months of 2021, when wind power output collapsed across the UK and […]

Mad Max Rides Again: Post-Renewables Europe Desperate For Fossil Fuels

Western Europe’s wind drought has them scrambling for fossil fuels, like their lives depend upon it, and it’s as if they didn’t see it coming! Who would ever have thought that the wind might stop blowing for extended spells? The almost dystopian panic brings to mind George Miller’s post-Apocalypse action-thriller, Mad Max 2. Mel Gibson’s […]

‘Green’ Energy Delusions: Promise of All Wind & Solar Powered Future Is Pure Fantasy

Anyone still talking about an ‘inevitable transition’ to wind and solar power must have skin in the game.  That wind and solar fail to deliver when consumers need power most, is hardly news.  STT has been laying it out on these pages since December 2012. Since then, sunset and calm weather have continued to smash […]

Wind Power Fail: Britain’s Coal-Fired Power Plants Keep The Lights On During ‘Big Calm’

If having no power at all was the object of our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and solar ‘powered’ future, then we’re well on our way. The bitter northern hemisphere winter just gone, has shown wind and solar for what they are: pointless and expensive vanity projects, that only a lunatic would promote and […]

Winter of Discontent: Brits Face Power Rationing as Wind Power Output Collapses (again and again)

Brits expecting their thousands of wind turbines to deliver the goods this winter have been disappointed, yet again. While Boris Johnson peddles his delusional plan to run the UK entirely on breezes and bluster, the typical (and wholly expected) collapse in wind power output across Britain this winter provides a taste of things to come.
