Punishing Price Tag: Countless Trillions Being Squandered On Unreliable Wind & Solar

There’s a complete reality disconnect among those peddling the ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future: physics, engineering and economics hardly feature in their starry-eyed worldview. So much is evident in the latest policy must have – the net-zero carbon dioxide emissions target. Put aside the fact that it’s yet another opportunity […]

Biden’s Rapacious ‘Green’ Dream: Green New Deal Devouring World’s Rare Earth Minerals

Clean’, ‘green’ wind and solar were meant to save the planet, but the obsession with the unreliables will only expedite its consumption. Every solar panel and every wind turbine are an aggregation of minerals, requiring mountains of real energy in their creation. Many of those minerals are scarce, generally referred to as “rare earths”. Thanks […]

Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Counting the Colossal Cost of Wind & Solar’s Toxic Legacy

Behind every smug Tesla driving show pony, there’s literally a toxic lake of sludge building up somewhere in another part of the world. Every wind turbine, every all EV and every solar panel critically depends upon a myriad of so-called ‘rare earths’. The minerals in question have become ‘rare’, of late, as a consequence of […]

More facts about Wind turbines and rare earths

**** You will remember our earlier stories on the use of rare earths in wind turbines  (here and here), and how the demand for these materials is causing environmental havoc in China. **** Your ‘too-friendly’ neighbourhood wind developer has probably said that there are no rare earths used in wind turbines – well now you can […]

Who put the “Clean” in “Clean” Energy Council?

**** Australia’s peak wind weasel lobby group is called the “Clean Energy Council”. After watching this video, STT is not exactly sure why these boys can claim to be backing a “clean” form of energy at all? In fact, we think they’re either abusing the English language beyond what it can ordinarily suffer – or […]

Wind Power – the Poisoned Chalice

**** Big Wind’s Dirty Little Secret: Toxic Lakes and Radioactive Waste Right Side News Travis Fisher and Alex Fitzsimmons of IER 23 October 2013 The wind industry promotes itself as better for the environment than traditional energy sources such as coal and natural gas. For example, the industry claims that wind energy reduces carbon dioxide […]
