Hopelessly Helpless: German Wind Power Fails 93.3% Of The Time & Collapses in Minutes

  When the challenge is thrown at wind power proponents about its hopeless intermittency, like a drug addict, the answer is always “more”. More of the same, more turbines, more panels, more subsidies, more transmission network capacity, more non-existent mega batteries, well, just more. Germany is held up as the shining example of what our […]

Road to Nowhere: Wind Power’s Pathetic Performance Continues All Across Europe

  With the wind always blowing somewhere, it’s claimed that if turbines are spread far and wide, there’ll be a constant supply of wind ‘energy’. Except whole countries and indeed vast tracts of whole continents face dead-calm weather on a routine and regular basis. South-eastern Australia is home to 5,000MW of wind power capacity, spread […]

Germany’s Renewable Energy Disaster – Part 2: Wind & Solar Deemed ‘Ecological Disasters’

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle. German power prices have rocketed; blackouts and load shedding are the norm; and its idyllic countryside has been turned into an industrial wasteland, with its forests, no exception (see above). Hundreds of billions of euros have been squandered […]

Germany’s Renewable Energy Disaster – Part 1: Wind & Solar Deemed ‘Technological Failures’

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle. German power prices have rocketed; blackouts and load shedding are the norm; and idyllic rural communities are now industrial wastelands (see above). Hundreds of billions of euros have been squandered on subsidies to wind and solar, […]

Germany’s Ticking Turbine Time Bombs: Green-Induced Environmental Nightmare Unfolds

The wind industry continues to deliver up a bevy of eco-irony, a gift to those sick to death of the moral piety dished up by its deluded acolytes. Turbines exploding into flames, blades exploding into the ether and turbines, well, just plain exploding – make a mockery of claims by cultists that wind power is […]

Industrialised Landscapes & Battered Communities Drive German Backlash Against Big Wind

Germany’s wind power obsession has turned picture postcard landscapes into alien, industrial war zones – of the kind dreamt up by futurist HG Wells. In the beginning, carpetbaggers, rent seekers and their eco-zealot, shock troops sold the ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future as an ecological idyll. Except, the reality has fallen […]

Germany’s ‘Green’ Dream Turns Nightmare: Merkel’s Plans for Wind Powered Future in Tatters

Dashed hopes and bitter disappointment seem all that’s left of Germany’s, hell-for-leather rush to renewables. STT keeps focusing on Germany (and South Australia) for obvious reasons: if you present yourself as a renewable energy ‘superpower’, expect your critics to have a field day when you fail. In Germany and South Australia their respective renewable energy […]
