Misery Guaranteed: Net Zero CO2 Emissions Targets Mean Taxing Prosperity Out of Existence

As the wind and solar ‘transition’ implodes, the response is to tax the life out of anything still moving, crushing power consumers and taxpayers in the bargain. Ronald Reagan’s quip about how governments treat their economies: “If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it” is […]

Subsidised Suicide: Wind & Solar Power Chaos Driving Britain’s Rocketing Power Prices

Britain’s power consumers are paying a heavy price for its maniacal obsession with intermittent wind and solar. Trashing its coal-fired power fleet and failing to keep up its nuclear plants now looks positively suicidal. However, of late, the MSM has been dishing up an alternative reality, peddling a line that power prices would be a […]

British Taxpayers Paying Wind Power Outfits £500,000,000 Every Year To Produce NOTHING!

There’s never been a financial scam that comes anywhere near rivalling subsidised wind power for longevity and audacity. Stories of the gullible signing up to buy the London Bridge or the Eiffel Tower spring to mind, when it is borne in mind that wind power (which simply cannot be delivered on demand) has no commercial […]

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 […]

Vlad’s Victory: Europe Losing Energy War Thanks to Wind & Solar Obsession

Many a defeat is the product of a grand delusion; Europe’s obsession with wind and solar is just another example. Beaten by Vlad Putin’s ability to restrict the gas it needs to run fast-start-up gas peaking plants (essential to cover rapid and unpredictable collapses in wind output and rapid and wholly predictable collapses in solar […]

Blackout Blitz: Power Prices Rocket As London Struggles to Keep the Lights On

The lamps went out across Europe in 1914, 1939 and now they’re going out, again. This time, thanks to a maniacal obsession with intermittent wind and solar. Wishful thinking, combined with ideological zealotry has left Britain’s energy supplies in tatters. Germany is in the same boat, and for the same reasons. A few months from […]

Don’t Follow The Leader: How To Avoid Britain’s Wind & Solar Energy Disaster (Just Stop Now)

Britain’s power consumers (or what’s left of them) are brewing for a full-scale revolt. 12 months ago, the average annual energy bill was £1,400 ($2,400). Energy industry analyst Cornwall Insight forecasts that the British price cap will skyrocket and the average annual bill will reach £3,582 ($6,177) next month. By January, it predicts it will […]

The Great Wind Power Swindle: Households & Businesses Being Crushed By Record Power Bills

If wind power is cheap, why does every country obsessed with it suffer rocketing power prices? The game of smoke and mirrors played by renewable energy rent-seekers, has enabled them to avoid any critical scrutiny of the role heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar play in driving power prices into orbit. A decade of […]

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, […]

Renewables Regret: Power-Starved Europeans Rue Their Governments’ Wind & Solar Obsession

Eating cold baked beans in the dark might not be everyone’s idea of fun, but power-starved Europeans are getting used to that kind of indignity. German households and businesses are already suffering Europe’s highest power prices; since Putin’s Ukrainian adventure began, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per […]
