Forces Marshall in International Revolt Against the Great Wind Power Fraud

*** Across the Globe – wherever these things things have been threatened upon rural communities – or the threat has been realised – outrage follows. One line spun is that the hostility is an entirely English speaking phenomenon. That piffle was firmly skewered by Lilli-Anne Green (an American researcher and documentary film-maker, who has spoken […]

Wind Power Dreamers Put Australians on Highway to Energy ‘Hell’

*** When Electricity Bill Shorten came out to announce Labor’s 50% renewable energy target, a month back back, Tony Abbott quite rightly jumped on it as an economy destroying policy, that would drive power prices through the roof; energy intensive businesses offshore; and households into a dim, dark electricity free future. And fair enough: Adam […]

The Wind Industry’s Days of ‘Wine & Roses’ are Over: Australian Senate says Massive Subsidies Should End

**** Renewable energy handouts winding down The Australian Graham Lloyd 6 August 2015 There is a real-world example of what can happen when subsidies are cut and greater scrutiny is applied to renewable energy projects, buried in the pages of the much maligned Senate committee report into wind turbines and health. In January 2012, following […]

Labor’s Renewable Target is Pure Insanity: the Coalition’s Target is Simply Madness

 **** When Electricity Bill Shorten came out to announce Labor’s 50% renewable energy target, a couple of weeks back, Tony Abbott quite rightly jumped on it as an economy destroying policy, that would drive power prices through the roof; energy intensive businesses offshore; and households into a dim, dark electricity free future.

South Australia’s Unbridled Wind Power Insanity: Wind Power Collapses see Spot Prices Rocket from $70 to $13,800 per MWh

**** To call what South Australia’s Labor government has ‘gifted’ their constituents an energy ‘policy’, is to flatter it as involving some kind of genuine ‘design’. It’s an economic debacle, pure and simple. The current mess started under former Premier, Mike Rann –  a former spin-doctor, whose relatives lined up at the wind power subsidy […]

Macarthur Turbine Hosts Destroy Local Community & Bolt, as Hammering the Wind Industry becomes the “New Black”

**** When STT cranked into gear in December 2012, hammering the wind industry was a fairly lonely occupation: hardly fashionable; a bit like wearing yellow to a funeral, really.

**** A week or so back, Tony Abbott’s Coalition struck a deal with Labor involving a $46 billion electricity tax aimed at salvaging what’s left of Australia’s wind industry (see our post here). The ‘deal’ – which has passed the House of Reps – and is on its way to the Senate – is seen […]

Angry Wind Farm Victims Pull the Trigger: Turbines Shot-Up in Montana and Victoria

**** One of the great lines spun by the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers is how country people simply just can’t wait to snuggle up next to a cuddly bunch of Vestas V112s (see our post here). Apparently, life for rural communities just isn’t complete without a fleet of blade-chucking, pyrotechnic, sonic-torture devices. The […]
