Surefire Safety: Nuclear Power Sets Benchmark for Safe, Reliable & Affordable Power Generation

Climate alarmists railing about carbon dioxide gas and not talking about nuclear power generation, can’t be taken seriously. Nuclear power is the only stand-alone power generation source that does not emit carbon dioxide gas during the process. The fact that, among climate warriors, those seriously promoting nuclear power are few and far between, speaks volumes […]

Wind & Solar Reality Check: Why Intermittent & Unreliable Renewables Can’t Save the Planet

There’s only one problem with intermittent wind and solar, at scale they’ve never worked and never will. Sure, powering an isolated farm house or pumping water for livestock with a few solar panels makes practical and economic sense. But that’s not what’s being rammed down our throats, and massively subsidised at our expense, at the […]

Wind Turbine Ice Capades: German Wind Farm Neighbour Cheats Death, Dodging Flying Ice Chunks

*** Over the last few weeks German wind turbines have been stubbornly refusing to produce much power at all, while a frightening number have, instead, determined to completely self-destruct, with a rash of collapses, component liberation events (aka blade throws) and self-immolations (see our post here and below). Adding a distinctly cool flavour to the […]

290 Tonne Vestas Wind Turbines Dropping Like Giant Wounded Flies

**** Our post – Happenstance or Enemy Action? Giant Wind Turbines Collapsing with Alarming Regularity – was barely up a week, and yet another story of a 290 tonne whirling juggernaut crashing back to Earth popped up in Sweden. This time, another vertically vulnerable Vestas hit the deck – a V112 with three 54.7m blades, […]

Looking for Safe, Affordable, CO2 Free Power? Then it’s Nukes or Nothing

**** Let’s assume (as STT does, for the sake of argument) that the global warming/climate change Chicken Littles are right: the sky really is falling and it’s all CO2’s fault. So what the HELL are we doing pouring hundreds of billions of dollars into subsidies for wind power? The Wind Power Fraud (in pictures): Part […]
