Perfect Irony: Climate Cult Pushes Weather-Dependent Wind & Solar To Change The Weather

The Big Calm that struck wind power-dependent Europe and the UK in the latter half of 2021, was dripping in irony. They were meant to ‘fix’ the weather and here it was demonstrating how magnificently pathetic they are at generating power as and when we need it. Promoted by misanthropic doomsday peddlers, wind and solar […]

Big Green Lie: Why Endless Subsidies to Wind & Solar Won’t Make The Weather Any Better

If climate change is a problem, then wind turbines and solar panels aren’t a solution: heavily subsidised and unreliable wind and solar are an economic and environmental disaster. When climate alarmists managed to hijack energy (and with it economic) policy it was a case of lunatics taking over the asylum. In every breath, they exhort […]

Utterly Pointless: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Can’t Cut Carbon Dioxide Gas Emissions

For renewable energy rent-seekers, the claim that wind and solar reduce carbon oxide gas emissions is a necessary and endlessly repeated lie. The necessity comes from the fact that without that (utterly false) premise the wind and solar industries would have been dead and buried, years ago. Incapable of ever supplying power as and when […]

Nuclear Power: The Only CO2 Free Power Generation System Available

*** The most astonishing thing about Alan Finkel’s report on Australia’s electricity market calamity, is that the only stand-alone, CO2 emissions free generation source – nuclear power – barely rates a mention and gets dismissed as if it were some far fetched technology used by aliens. Finkel, a climate alarmist if ever there was one, […]

Climate Chicken Littles Nuzzle up to Nukes as Wind Power Love Affair Ends in Divorce

**** 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? By no stretch of the imagination can […]

STT’s Take on the ‘Global Warming’ Story

**** Now and again, STT gets a comment that seeks to pin us down as “anti-wind”, “climate deniers”. Here’s one from Enough Already: I agree with your specific arguments against wind turbines, but even hosting AGW-denial articles puts me off. It perpetuates stereotypes of dumb bogans when we need all possible intelligence on this side! […]

STT Champions in Coalition Ranks – Craig Kelly & Keith Pitt – Turn on $46 Billion LRET Debacle

 **** A week or so back, Tony Abbott’s Coalition struck a deal with Labor involving a $46 billion electricity tax aimed at salvaging what’s left of Australia’s wind industry (see our post here). The ‘deal’ – which has passed the House of Reps – and is on its way to the Senate – is seen […]

Bjørn Lomborg: Climate Change “Fixes”? – the “Cure” is Worse than the “Disease”

**** When it comes to assessing the costs, risks and benefits of environmental policy, Bjørn Lomborg is one of the very few that provide balanced, detailed analysis supported by facts and evidence. The economic choices we make – about allocating scarce resources to unlimited wants – should – as Lomborg consistently points out – be […]
