Descent of Man: Britain’s Suicidal Renewable Energy Policy Lays A Path To Poverty

Britain is reaping the sorry rewards of its wind power obsession, with spiralling power prices and an increasingly unreliable power supply. Back in August last year we reported on a mass blackout that struck Britain, when an offshore wind farm decided to down tools: Blackout Nation: Wind Power Output Collapse Leaves Millions of Brits Totally Powerless […]

Money For Nothing: Scotland’s Wind Farms Earn More Revenue When They’re Turned Off!!

The fact that Scotland’s wind farms have pocketed £650m for not generating power has attracted more than just a little attention. STT has run several stories over the last few months about wind power outfits being paid very handsomely to NOT generate electricity. Perhaps it’s the sense of outrage that comes with knowing a group […]

Cash Cow: UK Wind Farms Paid £650,000,000 in ‘Constraint Payments’ To NOT Produce Power

In the history of commerce, there’s never been a financial scam that comes anywhere near rivalling subsidised wind power. In the past, sharp, entrepreneurial types have made plenty of easy money from ‘selling’ the London Bridge and the Eiffel Tower to unwitting dupes. But scamming fools with too good to be true offers is nothing […]

Fading History: Britain’s Renewables Obsession Renders Reliable & Affordable Power Distant Memory

Back in August, Brits had their first taste of the kind of grid chaos inevitably delivered when you pin your hopes on the weather. Mass blackouts are the inevitable consequence of the notion that a modern economy can power itself on sunshine and breezes. As Brits are learning to their cost and consternation, electricity generation […]

Brits Belted: UK’s Subsidised Wind Power Obsession Leaves 3,000,000 Households Suffering Energy Poverty

Millions of British households face another bitter winter, unable to meet their rocketing power bills. An obsession with chaotically intermittent wind power (both off and onshore) has sent power prices spiralling. And, adding to the misery, the annual cost of renewable energy subsidies, Feed in Tariffs, fixed contract prices for wind and solar etc to […]

Zero Sum Game: UK’s Economy Wrecking Zero CO2 Emissions Target Would Cost Brits £1.5 Trillion

If the UK’s suicidal renewable energy policy weren’t enough, British climate boffins are pushing for a zero carbon dioxide gas emissions target. There’s something comical about watching virtue signallers trying to outdo each other. For the true zealot, emissions targets are always too soft, and anything short of a 100% renewable energy target, is not […]

Subsidy Suckers: Britain’s Solar Industry Wallowing in Massive Subsidies, While Power Prices Rocket

The wind and solar industries exist for one reason, and one reason only: massive subsidies. There’s a reason that holidaying Sun-seekers rarely put Britain on their bucket list. Dismally short days during bitter winters suggest that the UK would be one of the last places anyone would contemplate any serious reliance on solar power. And […]
