Wind & Solar Subsidies: High Time To End The Never-Ending Story of Wasted $Billions

Death and taxes are certainties, so too the wind and solar industry’s critical dependence on massive and endless subsidies. Those pushing wind and solar keep telling us that the power they produce is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time. Every so often, rent seekers and their political enablers are faced with the retort that, […]

Woke Wonderland: Joe Biden’s Offshore Wind Power Plans Staggeringly Expensive Fantasy

In the Humpty Dumpty land occupied by wind and solar advocates, the power produced by wind and sun is free and getting cheaper all the time. Solar panels and wind turbines are powering homes and businesses around-the-clock, whatever the weather. The panels and turbines last forever and cost nothing to repair or maintain. Well, that’s […]

Why Subsidising Intermittent Wind & Solar Drives Power Prices Through the Roof

Perplexed as to why your power bill just doubled? Then you’ll be pleased to know the answer is simple: massively subsidised wind and solar. Statisticians get excited when they can prove causation instead of mere correlation, which often depends upon the number of observations of a particular event of interest. With dozens of countries and […]

Great Socialist Reset: ‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Means No Future for YOU

Wind and solar isn’t about providing power to the people, it’s about depriving people of reliable and affordable power, and lining the pockets of crony capitalists with massive and endless subsidies. Australia is no exception. The subsidies to wind and solar here will top $60 billion by the end of this decade.  And, if rent […]

Wrecking Ball: Australia’s Fixation With Subsidised Renewables Guarantees Economic Disaster

If the object was wrecking every last manufacturing, mineral processing and mining job, then Australia’s renewable energy policy has delivered on time and under budget. Starting in 2001 with John Howard’s Renewable Energy Target (massively expanded by Kevin Rudd in 2009), the subsidies being squandered on intermittent wind and solar are now in the order […]

Highland Heist: During 2020 Scots Paid Wind Power Outfits £235,000,000 To NOT Produce Power

Chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind power is costing the normally parsimonious Scots a veritable fortune, even when their wind turbines aren’t producing so much as a spark. There aren’t many businesses where a major source of revenue is being paid to NOT produce what it is that your business is meant to produce. STT […]

Nothing Sustainable About Wind & Solar Power Generation – Except Massive Government Subsidies

After 30 years of operation, enterprises that would collapse overnight without massive subsidies ain’t “industries” – which is what wind and large-scale solar outfits spuriously claim to be. And when RE rent seekers talk about their “sustainable” business model, that’s just code for ensuring that those massive subsidies outlast religion. Following that theme, Robert Bradley […]

World’s Biggest Scams: Scotland’s Wind Farms Paid £650,000,000 To NOT Produce Power

In the history of commerce, there’s never been a financial scam that comes anywhere near rivalling subsidised wind power. There aren’t many businesses where a major source of revenue is being paid to NOT produce what it is that your business is meant to produce. STT is at a loss to find many other current […]

Shredded: Debunking The Endless Myths Pitched by Renewable Energy Propagandists

The bigger the lie, the more likely the dupe will believe it, which is the game played by renewable energy rent seekers with the line that subsidised wind and solar are the answer to our economic recovery. Just how that might work, is anybody’s guess? If heavy reliance on intermittent wind and solar sent power […]

Climate Cult Hijacks COVID-19 Crisis By Demanding More Subsidies For Wind & Solar

It didn’t take them long. The climate cult has hijacked the COVID-19 crisis, demanding more subsidies for wind and solar. Apparently, more windmills and solar panels will operate like some kind of collective vaccine against the coronavirus. Never mind that the worst affected COVID-19 victims need to be admitted to ICUs and hooked up to […]
