Follow The Money: Wind & Solar Lobbies Threw $Millions At ‘Climate Change’ Election (And Lost!)

The 2019 Federal election was billed as a referendum on Climate Change, with Labor’s Bill Shorten pitching up a 50% Renewable Energy Target and a whopping carbon dioxide gas tax, to boot. Bill also promised that he would eradicate Australia’s frequent and punishing droughts, with the aid of windmills and solar panels. Although no one, […]

Psycho Simon: Renewable Energy Zealots Incite Terrorism Against Wind & Solar Critics

As a rule, RE zealots are not only stupid and selfish, they’re invariably nasty and prone to fits of outrage and violence. Leading the gang in Australia is silver-spooner, Simon Holmes a Court. Simon has a Masters in Smug, the result of the enormous pile accumulated by his (late) billionaire corporate-raider daddy, Robert. And claims […]

South Australia’s 50% Renewable Energy Fail: World’s Highest Power Prices Caused by Subsidised Wind & Solar

South Australians suffer the world’s highest power prices because they rely on heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind & solar.

The graphic above appeared in The Australian, a few […]

Australian Court Finds Wind Turbine Noise Exposure a ‘Pathway to Disease’: Waubra Foundation Vindicated

  In a World first, Australia’s Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) has declared that the “noise annoyance” caused by wind turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound “is a plausible pathway to disease” based on the “established association between noise annoyance and some diseases, including hypertension and cardiovascular disease, possibly mediated in part by disturbed sleep and/or […]

Wind Power: Unfolding Environmental Disaster – Entire Ecosystems Collapsing

As STT followers are well-aware, this site doesn’t mince its words: wind power is the greatest economic and environmental fraud in human history. Pull the subsidies, and this so-called ‘industry’ would disappear in a heartbeat. For the best part of 20 years, the wind cult has attempted to justify the hundreds of $billions squandered on […]

Wind Power Investors Fleeced: Teenage Turbines Falling Apart in Donegal

**** Wind power outfits still make wild claims about these things running on the smell of an oily rag and lasting for 25 years or more, needing little more than a hug from time to time. However, the operations and maintenance cost of these things is around $25 per MWh – hardly the zero marginal […]
