Suicide Watch: Insane Wind & Solar Obsession Helping Wreck Australia’s Economy

The industrial revolution was all about harnessing cheap and reliable energy. Australia’s de-industrialisation has reversed that process. An obsession with chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar has sent Australian power prices through the roof. Energy hungry businesses such as mining, mineral processing and manufacturing are watching their profit margins evaporate. Pretty soon those […]

Forgotten People: New Wind & Solar Slush Fund Shows PM’s Contempt for Quiet Australians

  The great unwashed in Australia’s suburbs and regions worked out long ago that heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar represent a problem, rather than a solution. Watching their power prices go through the roof, with much worse to come, the ambitious working classes were clearly none too keen on suffering more of […]

Power Drain: Risible Reliance on Intermittent Wind & Solar Means Summer Blackouts Beckon

  Subsidised into existence, intermittent wind and solar now pose existential threats to Australia’s once reliable power supply, this summer and beyond. No industrialised country has ever run itself on sunshine and breezes; no country serious about maintaining first world living standards, ever will. So just how Australia’s energy boffins still cling to the notion […]

Building Baseload: Keeping Australia’s Lights On Means More Coal-Fired Power – Now!

Preventing power price hikes and keeping the lights on by adding more intermittent wind and solar is like putting out fire with gasoline. These days, only the most delusional RE zealot still claims that spiralling power prices aren’t caused by chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar. The mantra has shifted to one which […]

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 […]

Crunch Time: Australia’s Renewable Energy Rent-Seekers Suicidal After Coalition Victory

  The ‘shock’ Federal election result has left RE energy rent seekers reeling. What was meant to be a Green/Labor landslide – with the promise that subsidies to wind and solar would double and be extended until kingdom come – returned not only the Liberal/National Coalition to power, but left the Energy Minister, Angus Taylor […]

Blown Away: Australians Reject Labor’s 50% RET & Plans for Giant Wind & Solar Roll-out

  Bill Shorten’ 45% CO2 emissions reduction target and his 50% Renewable Energy Target was meant to deliver a Labor landslide. It didn’t. Bill Shorten and his acolytes believed that Australian voters would flock to his grand – ‘save the planet’ – plans for sunshine and breezes. Their propaganda wing, GetUp! made it seem like […]
