Numerical Nonsense: Why Claims Wind & Solar Can Power the Planet Just Don’t Add Up

That troubled teenage, Greta the Fretter has reignited the nonsense that we’re a heartbeat away from an all wind and sun powered future. The girl that can see carbon dioxide gas, heads up a mathematically challenged group, who pronounce the time and date when the world will happily operate without generating any CO2 at all, […]

Ripping Yarns: Wind & Sun Can’t Power the World: Never Have & Never Will

You know we’ve reached peak stupid when adults line up to be lectured by troubled teenage girls on energy and world economics. Greta the Fretter and the lunatics gluing themselves to roads under the banner of the Extinction Rebellion have made the work of the sane and rational so much easier. For a decade or […]

Emerging From Darkness: Britain’s Mass Blackout Drives Push For Ever-Reliable Nuclear Power

It’s amazing how quickly millions of minds left freezing or boiling in the dark focus on the importance of having power as and when it’s needed. Wind and solar obsessed South Australians set the benchmark for blackouts and mass load shedding. Now the UK and had its first taste of the kind of grid chaos […]

Atomic Reaction: Self-Inflicted Wind & Solar Debacle Means Australia Needs Nuclear Now

Sensible Australians know chaotically intermittent wind and solar can never work, forcing MPs to demand ever-reliable nuclear power, instead. True it is that coal-fired power provides around 80% of the electricity consumed among those states connected to the Eastern Grid (Queensland, NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia). But, as a result of the obscene subsidies […]

Start Me Up: Australian MPs Push For Nuclear Powered Future

That the world’s third largest uranium exporter has never had a nuclear power plant (and banned them) astonishes all and sundry. Australia also holds the world’s largest uranium reserves. And yet, in 1998 its Federal government passed amendments to the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act and enacted the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Act, […]

Time For Nuclear Option: Australian Election Blows the Lid Off the Nuclear Power Debate

Nuclear power isn’t an option in Australia, but it damn well ought to be. Banned by Luddites in 1998, Australia has never had a nuclear power generation system, despite being the world’s third largest uranium exporter, with more than a third of the world’s proven reserves. STT is devoted to pushing the case for nuclear […]

Rational Reaction: Australian Unions Back Nuclear Powered Future

That Australia, an energy superpower, could back never-reliable wind and solar over ever-reliable, astonishes the sane and rational. Especially as the Lucky Country’s known uranium resources are the world’s largest – almost one-third of the world total. Notwithstanding that glorious abundance, Australia banned nuclear power generation a generation ago. There are no nuclear power plants […]
