Planet Saving Power: Nuclear Power Cleanest & Safest Form of Energy on Earth

The fact that very few climate warriors are out there seriously promoting nuclear power, speaks volumes about what’s really driving them. If CO2 really was about to destroy the planet, these characters would be talking about nothing else but nuclear power, and how to deliver it to all and sundry. Instead, for reasons that escape […]

Setting It Straight: Nuclear Power Sets the Gold Standard For Safe & Reliable Power Generation

The French get 85% of their power from nuclear plants and haven’t suffered so much as a scratch since they started in 1962. By contrast, the wind industry (which really only got off the ground in the late 1990s and still generates a trifling amount of electricity) has clocked up around 190 fatalities, so far (eg, […]

Turbine Terror: Truckers Face Life & Death Transporting Giant 60m Wind Turbine Blades

With wind turbine blades pushing 60 metres (197 feet) and weighing in at up to 20 tonnes, those that transport them for a living are dicing with death, on a daily basis. So far, the wind industry has clocked up 195 fatalities: 122 were wind industry and direct support workers (divers, construction, maintenance, engineers, etc), […]

Energy Essentials: Clean, Safe & Ever Reliable Nuclear Is The Obvious Choice

The well-worn meme about the dangers of nuclear power doesn’t stand first contact with reality. As Katie Tub details below, nuclear power not only delivers a reliable and affordable stream of electrons, it does so in a manner that’s a whole lot safer than anything else humans engage in. Katie tallies up the tiny number […]

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 […]
