Energy In-a-Nutshell: Constant Calm Weather Means Wind Power Will Never Work

It doesn’t take a genius to connect calm weather with total collapses in wind power output. Even the functionally illiterate have the capacity to understand just how incapable wind power is of delivering power on demand. For example, depicted above – courtesy of Aneroid Energy – is the output delivered by Australian wind power outfits to […]

Dream On: Finite Mineral Resources Mean Grand Wind & Solar Transition Must Inevitably Fail

As the grand delusion of an all-wind and sun-powered future unravels in Europe, rational thinkers are turning to the insatiable demand for minerals that comes with the ‘inevitable transition’ and pointing out that what’s contemplated is not only impossible, but simply ludicrous. The volumes of high-value minerals such as copper and aluminium required in every […]

Chairman Mao Returns: ‘Green’ Energy Cult Delivers Another ‘Great Leap Forward’

The ‘transition’ to wind and solar is delivering punishing power prices to those who can least afford it, and the inevitable power rationing surrounding collapses in wind and solar output is crushing businesses of all shapes and sizes. The zealots behind it couldn’t care less about the vulnerable and impoverished that drift along at the […]

‘Green’ Energy Fantasy Unravels As Reality Grips Wind & Solar Obsessed Europe

What’s dressed up as “progress” these days increasingly looks and sounds like a drift back to our Dark Age of misery, poverty and ignorance. Anyone who still thinks wind turbines and solar panels equate with Earthly salvation, is more than just a little confused. But that’s the very point and purpose of those pushing the […]

Murder – Not Suicide: Europe’s Renewable Energy Policy Threatens Lives & Livelihoods

When it comes to Europe’s wind and solar disaster, ignorance is no longer a defence.  As STT has been pointing out for over a decade, the power pricing and supply calamity that follows any serious effort to rely on wind and solar is the only thing ‘inevitable’ about the so-called ‘transition’. What’s happened in Germany, […]

Poor Punishment: Energy Poverty Inevitable Result of Renewable Energy ‘Transition’

Germans are learning the truth about chaotically intermittent wind and solar, the hard way. Their erstwhile supplier is making the depth of their dependence on Russian gas keenly felt as he maintains his efforts to subjugate Ukraine and get Ukraine’s Western backers to back off. Across Europe, rushes recent squeeze on gas supplies has focused […]

Wind & Solar Transition Means Transition to Power Rationing & Rocketing Power Bills

When the sun sets and calm weather sets in, wind and solar power can’t be bought at any price. Increase the capacity of the unreliables connected to your grid and get ready for not only rocketing power bills, but routine power rationing. Once upon a time, electricity was cheap and it flowed like running water. […]

Blackout Blame Shifting: Wind & Solar Collapses Responsible For Unplanned Power Outages

Wind and solar generators happily take credit when the sun’s up and the wind’s blowing, but dodge all criticism when blackouts follow sunset and/or calm weather. The standard trick is to point in every direction – except the obvious – when power rationing (euphemistically called “demand management”) or unplanned power rationing (aka widespread blackouts) follows […]

The Big ‘Green’ Lie: Why We’ll Never, Ever Be 100% Powered By Wind & Solar Power

The wind and solar acolyte in their more delusional moments readily proclaims that an all-wind and sun-powered future is upon us.  Never mind sunset; never mind dead calm weather; and never mind the fact that the idea that giant lithium-ion batteries economically storing wind and solar power at grid-scale is pure hokum – for the […]

Powering Down: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Mean End of Reliable & Affordable Power

Once upon a time, governments strived to ensure their citizens had access to reliable and affordable electricity. That was then. This is now. A cabal of wind and solar rent-seekers and their political enablers are determined to control every aspect of your daily life, by preventing you from having electricity, as and when you need […]
