Scottish Wind Power Company Attempts to Cover Up Turbine Collapse

*** What’s notable about this story is not that a 160 tonne turbine collapsed without warning, nor is it the effort by the wind power outfit’s spin doctor to pretend that this is the first time a 90m tower has taken a tumble to terra firma (a line we demolish, so to speak, below). No, […]

The Nuclear Option: New Research Makes Nuclear Power Even Safer

STT tends to leave the debate about global warming or ‘climate change’ to others. However, STT has always thought that if man-made CO2 emissions really were destroying the planet, then sensible governments would have moved to build nuclear power plants from the moment the Chicken Littles started wailing about the heavens collapsing.

Fry-day Funnies: Wind Turbines ‘Explode’ onto the World Energy Stage

Denmark Calls Halt to More Wind Farm Harm

***** Denmark is the home of struggling Danish fan maker, Vestas – an outfit that – after our Wind Power Fraud Rally in June 2013 – paid $millions to a crack team of Australian propaganda parrots to invent a campaign aimed at winning back the “moral” high ground. It called its new public relations model […]

Berserk Warriors: it’s the Dane’s Turn to Take Cover as (Yet) Another Turbine Self-Destructs

*** Remember all those stories about wind turbines lasting for 25 years – without so much as the need for an oil-change – and being “safe as houses”?
