Destination Destruction: Wind and Solar ‘Transition’ Devouring Planet’s Dwindling Resources

Miners love wind and solar – demand for iron ore and coal has never looked rosier, and at the heart of every Electric Vehicle, solar panel and wind turbine there’ a bevy of rare minerals which are fast becoming rarer, thanks to our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future and the […]

Biden’s Rapacious ‘Green’ Dream: Green New Deal Devouring World’s Rare Earth Minerals

Clean’, ‘green’ wind and solar were meant to save the planet, but the obsession with the unreliables will only expedite its consumption. Every solar panel and every wind turbine are an aggregation of minerals, requiring mountains of real energy in their creation. Many of those minerals are scarce, generally referred to as “rare earths”. Thanks […]

Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Counting the Colossal Cost of Wind & Solar’s Toxic Legacy

Behind every smug Tesla driving show pony, there’s literally a toxic lake of sludge building up somewhere in another part of the world. Every wind turbine, every all EV and every solar panel critically depends upon a myriad of so-called ‘rare earths’. The minerals in question have become ‘rare’, of late, as a consequence of […]

Toxic Truth: Millions Of Solar Panels & Wind Turbine Blades Destined For Landfills

The so-called wind and solar ‘industries’ are barely out of nappies, and yet they’re already responsible for a smorgasbord of toxic waste. The magnets in wind turbine generators are made from neodymium and dysprosium, rare earth minerals mined almost exclusively in China, which controls 95 percent of the world’s supply of rare earth minerals. The […]

Who put the “Clean” in “Clean” Energy Council?

**** Australia’s peak wind weasel lobby group is called the “Clean Energy Council”. After watching this video, STT is not exactly sure why these boys can claim to be backing a “clean” form of energy at all? In fact, we think they’re either abusing the English language beyond what it can ordinarily suffer – or […]
