Keith De Lacy: “New” Labor – Out to Punish the Poor & Get Rich

*** A few posts back we looked at how South Australia went from economic zero to economic hero during the 1950s and 1960s – with the help of a pragmatic Adelaide Hills farmer, Sir Tom Playford. Tom created a manufacturing and industrial investment paradise – principally by making cheap and reliable power available through the […]

Christopher Booker on Alan Jones

Chris Booker was interviewed by Alan Jones this morning. Alan has a little radio show that more than just a few Australians tune into each morning. Syndicated through over 77 Stations and with close to 2 million listeners Countrywide – AJ as he’s known – is one of those people that leads the political charge […]

Investec Bails out at Belalie

In yet another sign that the wheels are falling off the wind industry gravy train, Investec has announced it wants to flog its plans for its proposed 105 turbine Hornsdale project. The project was planned for the hills near Belalie, North of Jamestown in South Australia and drew the same hostile opposition to giant fans […]

It’s only a RORT if you’re not in on it

**** South Aussies aren’t well served when it comes to media scribes.  The Advertiser was once a mighty broad-sheet, but these days it’s a struggling down market tabloid that – as a source of news – makes for a pretty decent fish and chip wrapper. But – slowly – the journos there are waking up […]

ENRON now spelled A-G-L

In the last few weeks we’ve been focusing on how the wind power fraud impacts on South Australian power prices – making them the highest in the world – although SA seems to be fighting for line honours with wind power mad Denmark. STT readers are well aware of what happens when SA’s 1,223 MW of […]

Saving the Heartland – SA’s Yorke Peninsula

STT recently gave you an insight into the fight to keep Yorke Peninsula turbine free and, therefore, able to keep doing what it does best – producing food and fibre – in No Blacker day for the Greens. Here’s a follow up that appeared in The Sunday Mail May 12, 2013 by Mike Smithson. Ill […]

Well, Minister, are you going to expose the billion-dollar fraud?

“I know the government is worried about all the super funds and other money that has been sunk into these projects, but I also know the government is fully aware that wind farms do not abate GHG, but are good vote grabbers … Allowing the fraud to continue just allows the problem to get bigger […]

More than 1000 megawatts of installed wind power sitting uselessly

Normally we don’t like republishing press releases. We think it just encourages them. But Ridgway gets it. So his release gets a ride on STT. It’s just another example of how this sodding technology doesn’t work, has never worked, and will never work. It just makes some people sick, and some people rich. Hon David […]

A Sunrise report on a sunset industry

As always, money and power is in the hands of corporate wind …

Guest poster: Frank Campbell, Elmhurst, Victoria, Australia. Frank is a retired sociologist and former supporter of the Greens. It’s galling that paid propagandists like Leigh Ewbank (Pyrenees Advocate, February 1, 2013), safe in their Carlton castles, lecture rural people about the wonders of wind turbines. The rural press is flooded with their formula letters. Like […]
