The ‘Unreliables’: Europe’s Power Grid Under Threat from Chaotic Wind & Solar

  Germany may have led the charge, but other European states merrily followed its suicidal attempt to run on sunshine and breezes. The results have been an unmitigated disaster. Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie: Renewable Energy […]

Time to Get Serious: Fretting About CO2? Then Nuclear Power’s The Only Solution

STT promotes nuclear power because it works. Reliable, safe and affordable it’s the only stand-alone power generation system that does not generate carbon dioxide gas during the […]

Setting It Straight: Nuclear Power Sets the Gold Standard For Safe & Reliable Power Generation

The French get 85% of their power from nuclear plants and haven’t suffered so much as a scratch since they started in 1962. By contrast, the wind industry (which really only got off the ground in the late 1990s and still generates a trifling amount of electricity) has clocked up around 190 fatalities, so far (eg, […]

French Devolution: China Embraces Reliable & Affordable Nuclear as France Lets It Slide

Europe’s power market is in a diabolical mess: massive subsidies to intermittent wind and solar have undermined reliable and affordable power supplies, sending Germany and Denmark’s power prices through the roof (see above). Whereas, France’s heavy reliance on reliable and affordable nuclear means that the French enjoy power prices a mere fraction of those suffered […]
