Ever-Reliable Nuclear: For When the Wind Don’t Blow & the Sun Don’t Shine

  Sunset and calm weather and the reasons why wind and solar power have never worked; and never will. Cost-effective storage is a pipe dream. Talk about mega-lithium batteries is just so much propaganda, designed to avoid the inevitable conclusion that the world has squandered hundreds of billions of dollars on renewable energy, with nothing […]

Wicked Waste: What the $Trillions Squandered on Wind & Solar Could Have Done for the Planet

Economics is all about the cost of opportunity; eg squander $trillions on wind and solar and you lose the chance of really saving the planet. It’s a point picked up by Bjorn Lomborg in this essay published by The Australian. Climate trillions frittered in the wind The Australian Bjorn Lomborg 20 July 2019 This year, […]

Growing-Up: Australians Get Serious About Serious Energy, Demanding Nuclear Power, Now

All of a sudden, Australians are talking about a nuclear powered future, like there’s no tomorrow. Having recognised that climate alarmists will never relent in their crusade against carbon dioxide gas – being a proxy for eradicating cheap, reliable and affordable coal-fired power – anyone interested in a future where hot showers and cold beer […]

Atomic Ascendancy: Australians Now See Nuclear Power as the Natural Choice

  All of a sudden, any Australian with half a brain is talking about nuclear power generation. Not so long ago, only the bravest would utter the ‘N’ word out loud. Howled down by the anti-nuke brigade, in the beginning, and later berated by zealots pushing heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar, those […]

Nuclear No-Brainer: Why Australia’s Ban on Nuclear Power Generation Defies Common Sense & Logic

  Every day we’re bombarded with warnings about CO2 incinerating the planet, wiping out entire species and otherwise spoiling our day. For those subscribing to the ‘end is nigh’ scenario, all that seems fair enough. But what doesn’t stand much scrutiny is the fact that the planet’s doomsayers run silent on the need for nuclear […]

Nutting-out Nuclear: Why Cost & Reliability Mean Wind & Solar are No Match for Nuclear Power

If carbon dioxide gas is your poison, nuclear power is your antidote. STT promotes nuclear power, because it works. For those characters getting jumpy about our so-called climate ‘emergency’, nuclear power has the added benefit of being the only stand-alone power generation source that doesn’t emit CO2 during the process. Quite apart from its safety […]
