‘RE-ligion for Rich People’: Green Guru – Michael Shellenberger Slams Hopelessly Unreliable Wind & Solar

  Environmentalists ready to slam never reliable wind and solar and back ever reliable nuclear are rare birds, indeed. Michael Shellenberger is such an animal. Lauded by environmentalists in the US, Shellenberger is not so much crusading for the environment, but waging a war against the hypocritical and pompous who drive global warming alarmism; a […]

New ‘Green’ Deal Nonsense: 100% Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Product of Pixie Dream Girl Fantasies

Whenever you see ‘transition’ in a sentence about energy, you know you’re being conned. The meme has it that the status quo is over, and now we’re off on an inevitable and inexorable path towards an all wind and sun powered future; not a matter of if, mind you, but simply when. Step back for […]

Swedish Shutdown: Shift from Ever-Reliable Nuclear to Never-Reliable Wind Leaves Swedes Scrambling for Power

Attempting to replace always-on nuclear with weather-dependent wind power was always going to end in tears. Sweden – renowned for cheerful pop groups like Abba, Vogue-ish furniture and meatballs – has been hijacked by maniacs who’ve resolved to wind down its enviable nuclear power generation capacity, claiming it can be readily replaced with the chaotic […]

Pathetically Pointless: Massive Increase in German Wind Power Capacity Adds Nothing to Power Output

Adding wind power generating capacity is one occasion when ‘more’, truly means ‘less’. No matter how much of other people’s money gets spent spearing wind turbines all over the countryside, the result is the same: whether it’s 10,000 or 100,000 MW of available wind power capacity, when calm weather sets in, the combined output adds […]

Kiwi Wind Farms ‘Lazy as Bro’: New Zealand’s Wind Turbines Produce Nothing 80% Of The Time

  Never there when you need it, often there when you don’t, wind power is, at best, an infantile joke. Promised output figures are rarely realised. What’s referred to as the “capacity factor” of any given wind farm is said to represent a proportional, and meaningful, contribution to electricity demand. Except, instead of powering the […]

Fatal Attraction: America’s Big Freeze Reveals Deadly Danger of Unreliable Renewables

Relying on intermittent wind and solar requires a kind of blind faith that power might be delivered when needed most, such as the Big Freeze that hit America’s Mid-west last month, and the heatwave that hit Victoria and South Australia, the month before that. On that score, STT’s post – Minnesota Madness: Big Freeze Exposes […]

Nuclear Power Works: That’s Why The Wind & Solar Industries Hate It So Much

Only the most delusional climate alarmist still believes that wind and solar power can help in their global crusade against carbon dioxide gas. As we have said repeatedly, nuclear power is the only stand-alone power generation source which is capable of delivering power on demand, without CO2 emissions being generated in the process. Perversely, notwithstanding […]
