No Time To Lose: Reliable, Affordable Emissions Free Nuclear Power’s Time Is Right Now

Anyone talking about reducing carbon dioxide emissions and not talking about nuclear power, can’t be taken seriously. Europe’s months-long wind drought in the last half of 2021 demonstrated the dangerous futility of attempting to rely on mother nature for your energy needs. Which is why the French, among others, are now talking about nuclear power as if it […]

Europe’s Self-Inflicted Energy Catastrophe Driven By Hopelessly Unreliable Wind & Solar

Anyone looking for a taste of what the ‘transition’ to wind and solar might look like, need look no further than Europe. The best (worst) examples, Germany and the UK are in the middle of self-inflicted energy debacles, with many of their neighbours not far behind. Mass wind droughts – that lasted months at the […]

Europe’s Epic Renewable Energy Fail Makes Transition to Nuclear Power Truly Inevitable

The fastest way to get people thinking about electricity, is to deprive them of it. Europe’s power pricing and supply calamity has sharpened thinking and provided a golden opportunity for engineers and free-market economists to wrest back control from ideologues and renewable energy rent-seekers. Until the Big Calm hit Western Europe last month – causing […]

Where Never Reliable Wind & Solar Perpetually Fail, Ever Reliable Nuclear Power Just Works

Renewable energy rent seekers hate nuclear power for the same reasons we promote it: it works 24 x 365, whatever the weather and delivers power that people can afford. Anyone claiming that carbon dioxide gas is destroying the planet and not promoting nuclear power simply can’t be taken seriously. Neither can anyone still suggesting that […]

Renewables Can’t Save the Planet, So Why Let Wind & Solar Industries Keep Destroying It?

  A moment’s employment of our critical faculties reveals just why wind and solar will never be meaningful power sources. STT is dedicated to explaining why. But, for the uninitiated, we’ll simply mention sunset and calm weather as the most obvious starting points. Explaining how readily the naïve and gullible have been taken in by […]

Want Safe, Reliable & Affordable Electricity? Then Start Thinking Nuclear, Right Now

The French get 70-80% 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 200 fatalities, (eg, see above) […]

Michael Shellenberger: Let’s Get Serious, Let’s Go Nuclear

  Very few climate warriors bother to advocate for nuclear power, which is a fair indication of what’s driving them. If CO2 really was about to destroy the planet, Extinction Rebellion, Greta and her worshippers would be talking about switching to nuclear power like their lives depended on it. Instead, for reasons that escape the […]

Cancel Culture: Michael Shellenberger Censored For Exposing Climate Industrial Complex

The media’s obsession with cataclysmic climate change is matched only by their fixation on unreliable wind and solar power as the only solution. That narrative has been tortured for more than 20 years, now. But even among their own ilk, the “only more subsidies for wind turbines and solar panels will save us” narrative has […]

Michael Shellenberger Exposes Climate Industrial Complex in ‘Apocalypse Never’

Climate alarmists continue to berate us that the world is doomed and the only ‘solution’ offered is channelling $trillions more in subsidies to intermittent wind and solar. Their calls for ‘immediate action’ really means more of the same: more subsidies for more windmills and more solar panels; which really means the end of reliable and […]

Michael Shellenberger: Sorry, But I Cried Wolf on Climate Change

If climate change is a problem, then wind turbines and solar panels aren’t a solution: heavily subsidised and unreliable wind and solar are an economic and environmental disaster. When climate alarmists managed to hijack energy (and with it economic) policy it was a case of lunatics taking over the asylum. In every breath they exhort […]
