Origin’s Grant King: Giant Fans Fail to Reduce CO2 At All

**** Australia has spent $billions propping up wind weasels with cheap money (read unsecured loans which are, in effect, interest free) from the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (see our post here); the benefit of the mandatory Renewable Energy Target, which forces retailers to purchase wind power on pain of a fine – aka the “shortfall […]

Melissa Ware: “Please Tony, Save Our Souls”

**** Melissa Ware is one of Pac Hydro’s numerous tragic victims at Cape Bridgewater, Victoria – where the Labor/Union backed outfit – run by former union heavy Gary Weaven – runs another non-compliant wind farm that’s been driving the neighbours to hell and back for over five years now (see our post here).

Wind Power: Germany’s Fatal Attraction

All lies and promises – the wind industry has finally been rumbled in Germany and is about to be shown the door in Australia. Wind weasels and their parasites have been guilty of more than just a little hubris.  Claiming to be able to deliver cheap, reliable sparks was always going to be their undoing. […]

Greg Hunt & Ian Macfarlane: aka “Dumb” and “Dumber”

STT has raised one or two suspicions about Ian “Macca” Macfarlane’s unseemly connections with his mates at Infigen (aka Babcock & Brown) and we’ve entertained the odd doubt about young Gregory Hunt.

Kelley was the author of […]

2014 – the Year STT goes “Viral”

STT is the site that wind scammers and their parasites just love to hate. In recent weeks we’ve been told about reports of STT’s demise being posted daily on greentard blogs – like ruin-economy and yes2ruining-us. Well, reports of STT’s “death” have been greatly exaggerated, to say the least. To the contrary, we’re fast going […]

Profitable path to sustainability The Australian Dennis Jensen 27 September, 2013 BJORN Lomborg has stated “if it is not economic, it is […]

Industrial Noise – is always and everywhere a public health problem

Desperate to prevent the Coalition’s promised investigation into the known and obvious adverse health effects from giant industrial wind turbines – obvious health effects, such as sleep deprivation – STT hears that wind weasels and their parasites have rounded up a few tame turbine hosts at Waubra to try and pooh-pooh the tragic experiences of […]
