Blackout Nation: Insane ‘Reliance’ on Wind Power Delivers Pure Power Chaos

Alcoholics call it a ‘moment of clarity’. In wind powered South Australia and Victoria, hitherto fans of renewables call it a ‘mass blackout’. In 1919, after Engineer/Soldier, Sir John Monash returned to his home town of Melbourne from the Western Front, to a hero’s welcome, he set about establishing an electricity grid that would serve […]

Dumb & Dumber: Wind Power Output Collapse Leaves South Australians & Victorians $400m Poorer

  If the consequences for health and human safety weren’t so deadly serious, watching wind powered Victoria and SA plummet into North Korean darkness every time the wind stops blowing would be hilarious. Hot weather in Australia leads to a spike in demand, as householders and businesses crank up their air conditioners; it also coincides […]

The Staggering Cost of Keeping the Lights on in Wind ‘Powered’ South Australia

  South Australians have a Labor government and its deranged, ideological obsession with wind and solar power to thank for their status as an international joke.

Renewables Reckoning: Power Prices Double in Wind ‘Powered’ South Australia & Victoria, in Just 12 Months

One inevitable consequence of shackling your economy to intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar power is rocketing power prices. Another is routine load shedding (controlled blackouts) and statewide blackouts (when the grid manager completely loses control). All of those consequences are playing out in wind powered South Australia and its neighbouring state, Victoria. Both […]

Ready to Rely on Wind & Solar For Your Power? Then Get Ready to Freeze or Boil in the Dark

In their more deluded moments, wind and sun worshippers claim that, if only fossil fuel guzzling, climate-deniers would shrivel up and die, nature’s ‘wonder fuels’ could easily provide 100% of everybody’s energy needs, now and until kingdom come – and do so absolutely free. Meanwhile, back on Earth, even on their best days, the contribution […]

Community Backlash Against Big Wind: Massachusetts Residents’ Unanimous Vote Blocks Future Wind Projects

  Remember all the guff about rural communities falling over themselves to get into bed with big wind? No? STT has forgotten those well-polished propaganda pieces, too. Watching reasonable people turn against wind power with a vengeance is one of life’s inevitable events – like herds of hungry Wildebeests prowling the Serengeti in search of […]

Slow Burn: Australia’s Renewable Energy Fiasco Causes Continued Economic Destruction – No End In Sight

The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. Following the various angles pitched up by the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers is like playing chess with a madman: it’s exciting, but you have absolutely no idea what move he’ll come up with next. Notwithstanding that Australia’s renewable energy wonderland, South Australia continues to […]
