Universal Self Harm: Rejecting Nuclear Power Poses Real Extinction Threat

The only thing worse than talking about a nuclear-powered future, is not talking about one. Australians watching power prices go through the roof and suffering through power rationing during summer – thanks to the hopeless intermittency of wind and solar – are finally getting the message. Given the unrelenting attack on reliable coal-fired power, the […]

Counting the Staggering Cost of Biden’s Offshore Wind Power Plans: Power Costs Set to Double

With Joe Biden and the Squad in the White House, American power consumers should strap themselves in for a very wild ride. Under his plans to spear or anchor 10,000 or more giant industrial wind turbines into the seafloor off America’s Atlantic coast, it’s not just the marine environment and fishermen who will suffer the […]

So Simple: Fixing Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Crisis Easy As One, Two, Three

Solving Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity means killing subsidies for wind and solar and kickstarting nuclear power, by removing the ban that prohibits it.

Nuclear’s New Age: Americans Lead Race to Build Small Modular Plants

Small modular nuclear reactors have been powering submarines and ships for generations. Now, enterprising Americans are seeking to bring them onshore, in order to tap an inexhaustible and affordable supply of electricity – available 24 x 7, whatever the weather or time-of-day.

It’s Time: Fixing Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Calamity Starts By Removing Ban on Nuclear Power

In the midst of a RE-driven power pricing and supply calamity, the only thing worse than talking about nuclear energy, is not talking about nuclear energy.

For Adults Only: High Time Australia Embraced Ever-Reliable Nuclear Power

  There’s no rational explanation as to why Australia exports uranium to the world, but bans its use for power generation on home soil. Cognitive dissonance, might do it. Although STT thinks it’s because Australia’s run by infants and intellectual pygmies. And then there are the just plain gutless, who are too timid to even […]

Digging It: Nuclear Power the Obvious Solution For Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Crisis

  The dividend from Australia’s obsession with wind and solar is rocketing power prices and a grid on the brink of collapse. This summer, mass load shedding events are guaranteed, although those responsible for Soviet-era power rationing – the new ‘normal’ in what was once an energy superpower – are trained to refer to it […]

America Pushes Nuclear Option: President Launches Plan for Advanced Nuclear Plants

America truly is exceptional: while plenty of Western democracies are still piling into subsidised wind and solar, the USA is getting out. Prior to the election of Donald J Trump, the US was on an economy wrecking trajectory, set by renewable energy rent seekers and the eco-zealots that champion their cause: numerous American states, not […]
