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 […]

Cold Comfort: 20 Years Of Subsidies to Wind & Solar Leaves Germans Suffering World’s Highest Power Prices

No country has squandered more on subsidies to wind and solar than Germany; no country pays more for its power. Which is hardly a coincidence. The idea that millions of solar panels lying frozen under sheets of snow for months each year would provide some kind of benefit to power consumers beggars belief. So too, […]

Shredded: After 30 Years Wind & Solar ‘Industries’ Still Can’t Compete With Nuclear, Coal or Gas

Back in 1983 the American Wind Industry Association claimed that solar and wind would be “competitive and self-supporting on a national level by the end of the decade if assisted by tax credits and augmented by federally sponsored R&D”. That was 36 years ago. And there was no lack of assistance in the form of […]

Ontario’s Salvation: Locals Ecstatic Over Decision to Cancel 750 Wind Power Contracts

The decision to cancel 750 government contracts with wind power developers in Ontario has left rent seekers furious, and wondering where their next meal might come from? Doug Ford’s eminently sensible decision will avoid thousands more of these things being speared across Ontario’s rural heartland, much to the delight of Ontario’s farmers. Not to mention […]

Cuomo’s Cover-Up: Colossal Cost of New York’s Wind Power Subsidies Finally Revealed

The wind industry is built on lies and runs on subsidies. But, in a rare turn of events, an effort to cover up the cost of those subsidies has come unstuck, in grand style. Initially, Andrew Cuomo’s cronies put forward a lowball figure for the cost of subsidies to wind power in New York State, […]

Failed Experiment: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Have Never Worked & Never Will

Three decades, massive subsidies and yet intermittent wind power’s contribution to world energy needs remains little more than a rounding error. Electricity that can’t be delivered as and when it’s needed has no commercial value; massive subsidies are the only ‘value’ that attracts investors to wind and solar. Cut the subsidies and wind and solar […]

Forgotten People: New Wind & Solar Slush Fund Shows PM’s Contempt for Quiet Australians

  The great unwashed in Australia’s suburbs and regions worked out long ago that heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar represent a problem, rather than a solution. Watching their power prices go through the roof, with much worse to come, the ambitious working classes were clearly none too keen on suffering more of […]

Colossal Collapse: Wind & Solar Investment Plummets as Subsidies Subside

In the absence of endless subsidies, the wind and solar ‘industries’ would disappear in a heartbeat, which is precisely how things are panning out for renewable rent seekers in Australia. The idea that there is a natural market for electricity that can’t be delivered as and when it’s needed, is pure nonsense: hence the massive […]
