Trust & Truth Deficit: BBC Busted Telling Big Fat Lies About Wind Farm Subsidies

Never let the facts get in the way of the ‘green’ cult’s narrative, seems to be the BBC’s new motto. Its official line is that: “trust is the foundation of the BBC. We’re independent, impartial and honest”. ‘Independent’, maybe. But the Beeb is hardly impartial or honest when it comes to reporting on Britain’s wind […]

Quality Fail: Wind Power Output During COP26 Embarrasses Climate Industrial Complex

The climate grifters who descended on Glasgow to tout the purported benefits of wind power were done in by the weather, as wind power output collapsed for weeks across Europe in the lead up to COP26. During most of September and into October, Europe’s wind farms were the victims of the Big Calm, when the […]

Renewable Energy Obsession Means Brits Pay £10.8 Billion in Wind & Solar Subsidies Every Year

Unreliable, inefficient and insanely costly, there’s plenty to dislike about subsidised wind and solar. British power prices have rocketed; ‘reliability’ is now just a catchphrase; energy poverty is the new normal; and its PM, Boris Johnson apparently couldn’t care less. Indeed, he seems even more fixated on unreliable and unaffordable power, than his predecessors. Dr […]

Pricing Vanity: Power Consumers Punished By Obscene Cost of Wind Farm Subsidies

The virtue signalling wind power advocate reckons that the wind is free, but the pointless Vanity Project that is industrial wind power comes with a staggering pricetag. And it’s the power consumer that’s always left to pick up the tab. While the increasingly whopping number staring out from a power bill can hardly be concealed, […]

No Free Lunch: The Truly Gobsmacking Cost of Generating Offshore Wind Power

Effervescent claims that offshore wind power is cheap have fallen flat. When the rising capital cost of taking wind turbines offshore is accounted for, the power that they occasionally generate turns out to be the most expensive electricity of all, and by a very substantial margin. A couple of years back in the UK, rent […]

World’s Biggest Scams: Scotland’s Wind Farms Paid £650,000,000 To NOT Produce Power

In the history of commerce, there’s never been a financial scam that comes anywhere near rivalling subsidised wind power. There aren’t many businesses where a major source of revenue is being paid to NOT produce what it is that your business is meant to produce. STT is at a loss to find many other current […]

Daylight Robbery: UK Wind Farms Paid £9.3million To Shut Down Their Turbines For A Single Day

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 […]

Never Competitive: Britain’s Wind Industry Begs For Even More Massive Subsidies

The wind industry was founded on lies, built on myth and runs on subsidies. ‘Propaganda’ was conjured up by a Catholic Pope, employed with devastating effect by the Nazis and still maintains control over the masses in China. But it wasn’t until the wind industry switched into gear that propaganda really hit its straps. Being […]

Post Modern Power: Scots Face Whopping Bill For Government’s Wind Power Obsession

Scotland’s energy policy was hijacked by lunatics and the canny Scot, renowned for their parsimony, is paying a very heavy price, indeed. The subsidies paid to wind power outfits have been colossal; and all that state-mandated largess is being tacked onto Scottish power bills and/or picked up by taxpayers, south of the border. One of […]

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.
