Fear & Loathing Downunder: Australian PM’s Reliable Power Play Kills Dozens of Wind Power Projects Stone Dead

Gradually, painfully, the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers are coming to the realisation that Malcolm Turnbull’s National Energy Guarantee means the end of the greatest subsidy-soaked rort of all time. Among renewables rent-seekers, a few deluded souls are still kidding themselves that it will all blow over (so to speak), while, at the other […]

Renewables Rent-Seekers Reel as Trump Defies Climate-Cult & Delivers Fatal Blow to Paris Agreement

Donald Trump continues to infuriate the intelligentsia by delivering on the things he promised to deliver when he ran for President (how dare he!?!). They collectively dismissed him as a presidential hopeful and are still seething at the fact that they failed to predict his triumph; or, rather, to have guaranteed his defeat. Where the […]

Wind Turbines Provide Zero% of Global Energy: Despite $Billions Squandered on Subsidies

*** Matt Ridley defines pragmatism and common sense. If – as the wind cult constantly exhorts us – generating power without generating CO2 emissions is the object, then wind power offers no solution.

Australia’s Renewable Target in Tatters: Major Retailers Shun Wind & Solar, Electing to Pay $Millions in Retail Power Fines Instead

*** In the week just gone, yet another of STT’s predictions unfolded, with devastating consequences for Australia’s Large-Scale RET and the remnants of a battered and beleaguered wind industry. The LRET was slashed in 2015 simply to avoid the political embarrassment of having too little eligible renewable power dispatched to satisfy the 41,000 GWh target […]

Wind Turbine Noise & Nuisance: Irish High Court Trial on Damages Set For April

As we reported just before Christmas, in a case before the Irish High Court, German wind turbine manufacturer, Enercon conceded liability in noise nuisance in a claim pursued by 7 families whose lives and livelihoods have been thoroughly and mercilessly destroyed by incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound. The matter returns to the High […]

Former Australian PM Tony Abbott Calls for a Moratorium on Wind Power Subsidies

*** Malcolm Turnbull did him in, on the night of the long knives. However, despite being relegated to the backbench, former PM, Tony Abbott will not be suppressed and he will not be silenced. At a time when the chatter at Australian barbecues is dominated by talk about rocketing power prices and the mass blackouts […]

Wind Industry Armageddon: South Australian Blackouts Lead Australia’s Chief Scientist to Demand Immediate Cap on Wind Power

The fallout from South Australia’s power pricing and supply debacle continues. Last year Australia’s Chief Scientist, Alan Finkel was given the unenviable task of trying to keep Australia’s lights on, despite the havoc caused by a weather dependent system abandoned centuries ago, for pretty obvious reasons. With repeated statewide blackouts and routine load shedding part […]
