Ethical Vacuum: RE Batteries & All Electric Vehicles Drive Demand For “Blood Minerals”

As the truth gets out, the smugness that comes with owning (and sometimes driving) a Tesla may be harder to maintain than the vehicle itself (see above). The trope has it that soon we’ll all be auto-piloted by EVs charged by electrons lovingly caressed from sunshine and breezes. Although, if that vision is ever realised, […]

Renewables Generated Demand For Rare Earths Generating Toxic & Lasting Legacy

Sure, China profits from the great wind and solar scam, but it comes with a toxic legacy caused its rare earth processors that make it all possible. 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 […]

Environment Wreckers: Wind & Solar Chewing Up World’s Resources At Astonishing Rate

Diffuse, intermittent and unreliable wind and solar are utterly pointless as power sources – because they can’t deliver power as and when we need it. However, as a source of insatiable demand for the Planet’s (purportedly) dwindling resources they blitz the field. At the heart of every Electric Vehicle, solar panel and wind turbine there’s […]

Smug & Shameless: Exposing ‘Green’ Energy’s Dirty Slave Labour Secret

Unshackling the smug and self-righteous from the fixed and firm belief that their solar panels are saving the world, is no mean feat. The same characters also believe that the Teslas they occasionally drive to the local café and/or that they’ve strapped to their homes to capture a fraction of the six hours of solar […]

Dirty Truth About ‘Clean’ Technologies: Or The True Cost of Climate Virtue Signalling

If ‘green’ means squandering the world’s resources, then wind and solar fit the bill, but if it’s about ‘saving the planet’, then they’re an almighty fraud. Having operated in this space since December 2012, when it comes to wind and solar industry spin and propaganda, STT has seen it all and heard it all. Wind […]

Rapacious Renewables: Wind & Solar’s Insatiable Demand For Minerals Beyond Belief

Economics is about using scarce resources to meet insatiable wants; in contrast wind and solar devour scarce resources and provide nothing much in return. Diffuse, intermittent and unreliable wind and solar are utterly pointless as power sources – because they can’t deliver power as and when we need it. However, as a source of insatiable […]

Destination Destruction: Wind and Solar ‘Transition’ Devouring Planet’s Dwindling Resources

Miners love wind and solar – demand for iron ore and coal has never looked rosier, and at the heart of every Electric Vehicle, solar panel and wind turbine there’ a bevy of rare minerals which are fast becoming rarer, thanks to our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future and the […]

Renewables Driven Demand for Rare Earths Leaves America Vulnerable to CCP Extortion

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 the Western world’s insatiable appetite for ‘feelgood’ electricity generated by sunshine and breezes, occasionally stored in giant lithium batteries, as well as the […]
