Wind Power Fraud

STT’s Smörgåsbord:
A Selection from the Archive

smorgasbord

Just made for sharing.

****

STT is the site that the wind industry and its parasites just love to hate.

STT has been giving the beleaguered wind industry and its dwindling band of parasites and spruikers hell, since we kicked into action on 26 December 2012.

Since then, we’ve clocked over 2,700,000 views and given our loyal readers over 2,200 posts – which spell out – in clear and simple terms – the economic and environmental nonsense that is wind power – and the harm these things cause to communities all around the world.

And, we keep picking up dedicated followers – 32,000 so far, from all corners of the globe, including a bunch of canny Scots, Canadians, Americans, English, Welsh, Irish, Cornish, Danes, Germans, Greeks and plenty from Downunder.

We’ve gone back through the archive and put together a veritable Smörgåsbord – just perfect for sharing – with links to some of our more important posts, on a variety of topics. Once you’ve had a snack, don’t forget to invite friends, family, politicians, council members and journalists to the feast of information laid out in bite-sized-morsels below; just send them the link to this post – or anything from the menu that takes your fancy.

Whether you’re here in Australia, Canada, the US, Scotland, Wales, England, Germany – future energy policy depends on you. Now is the hour. Get angry and make some political noise – who knows, they might even listen.

We’re not here to debate the wind industry – we’re here to destroy it.

Whatever “social licence” the wind industry might have had disappeared long ago. Rural communities around the world are fighting back to protect themselves, their farms, their businesses and their families: the sense of seething rage is palpable from rural communities in Australia, Ireland, the UK, Canada, the US and Europe.

The endless lies tossed up by the wind industry and its parasites just don’t wash anymore: these days, people are switched on to the fraud; and angry for having been taken for gullible country bumpkins.

Once reasonable people are introduced to the facts about the insane costs of intermittent and unreliable wind power they cease to support it.

When they learn of the senseless slaughter of millions of birds and bats, and the tragic suffering these things cause to hard working rural people, reasonable people start to bristle.

But when they learn that – contrary to the ONLY “justification” for the $billions filched from power consumer and taxpayers and directed as perpetual subsidies to wind power outfits – wind power INCREASES CO2 emissions in the electricity sector – rather than decreasing them, as claimed – their attitude stiffens to the point of hostility to those behind the fraud and those hell-bent on sustaining it.

In our travels we’ve met plenty of people that started out in favour of wind power and turned against it.  But we’ve yet to meet anyone who started out opposed to wind power, who later became a supporter.  Funny about that.

Present the facts to reasonable people – and they’ll want to know how the scam got started in the first place and why it hasn’t been stopped in its tracks already?

So why not start with this tasty selection from our archive? It’s just made for sharing.

Economics:

Wind Power Subsidies & Increasing Power Prices

Australia’s Large-Scale RET Debacle

The Wind Industry as a monumental ‘Ponzi’ scheme

Intermittent & Unreliable Wind Power

Noise, Sleep & Health Impacts

Wind Industry Lies, Corruption & Deceit (or just another day at the office)

Communities Fighting Back

Plummeting Property Values

Environmental Harm

Turbine Dangers: Bushfires, Exploding Turbines, Flying Blades & Risks for Aircraft

REAL (ie “On-Demand”) CO2 Free Alternatives

STT went about this work for our Country – not for any reward – save knowing that we will help spare thousands from the misery of living with incessant, turbine generated low-frequency noise and vibration – as well as helping to obtain an energy policy that works FOR Australia – not AGAINST us – as the current policy clearly is.

Thanks for your support – together – we will win this.

  2. Why use Thermal Power Instead of Solar or wind.

    Finally the people of Australia are being forced to realised that Man-made climate change is the World’s biggest scam costing many lives, billions of dollars and crippling or destroying, what should have been successful industries and companies.
    The Green agenda of removing coal fired power stations and coal production from Australia has resulted in the closure and destruction of thirteen totally reliable and efficient power generating units. They brought this about by influencing naïve, gullible and incapable of logical thought- State and Federal Governments who danced to their tune to keep the Green votes.
    The federal governments introduced the renewable Energy Tax and proceeded to give massive subsidies to wind, solar energy placing billions of dollars in the pockets of overseas Asian and Arab investors. The power retailers are FORCED to buy at least 25% renewable energy irrespective of the cost.
    See; https://stopthesethings.com/2018/03/19/australias-endless-renewable-energy-nightmare-subsidies-worth-4bn-a-year-run-until-2031/
    Because of the subsidies and renewable energy tax, coal fired power stations were immediately placed behind the eight ball even though they generate far more power much cheaper and consistently.
    The result is our power industries are now sitting on a knife’s edge and close to going over the cliff. In peak summertime there is NO spinning reserve (back up available load) and at times insufficient power to meet demands. This will only get worse in the near future moving into more and more blackouts, until we can create new reliable, cheap energy that can only be supplied from either coal, gas or nuclear power stations.
    The ridiculous antics of the carpetbagger Malcolm Turnbull to supposedly build Snowy Hydro 2 is typically naïve and stupid. It is storing power already generated (minus 25%) not creating it. The cost of this project would build a major thermal power station suppling endless power.
    See; http://blackjay.net/?p=534
    South Australia is a prime example of renewable energy stupidity where they brag about being the renewable energy state as they suck on the teat of Victoria’s power, use small expensive (polluting) diesel generators and are desperately building an interconnector to N.S.W.
    At peak demand they have the dearest power in the World and are the laughing stock of the World.
    But in spite of the Greens efforts our coal industries has survived and is now thriving with record production and excellent prices in the range of $120 per tonne. This after a drought of seven years will slowly bring back jobs, prosperity and billions of dollars in coal levies.
    The Greens have tried to deny all Australians this success and prosperity with their actions, lies, false accusation and statements.
    Adani Mine is a prime example where the Greens insist it will destroy the barrier reef.
    A concoction of lies and absolute rubbish. Adani mine is located some 250 kilometres from the sea. The coal is exactly the same as any other coal and will be shipped on coal wagons- just like our existing mines.
    It will be taken to Abbotts point coal loading facility- just like our existing coal mines.
    Transferred on Conveyors to the awaiting ships- just like our existing coal mines.
    Transported by these ships to Asia (or elsewhere) -Just like our existing coal mines.
    At no time does the coal even touch salt water, yet the Greens would destroy a very profitable industry for Australia and destroy the employment of many Australians.
    The Greens are now in panic mode as they see their efforts have failed and will say and do anything to stop it, irrespective of the damage and consequences to Australia.
    Renewable (climate change) energy Green groups are popping up everywhere like weeds in a garden. You get rid of one and another George Soris supported weed pops up somewhere else.
    The letters to the editor flood in to all the media in an effort to influence people- but the people have finally woken up and no longer believe their lies from these self-appointed experts, most who don’t have a clue and falsify figures to suit their agenda.
    Tom Bradbury is a prime example where he states in his letter to the editor (RMB Sat.15/09/18) in response to Clive Palmer offering to build a 700 Megawatts power station; and I quote below;
    Clive Palmer station costing $1.5 billion to build and would employ 90 people during operation. Aldonga solar farm would be 265 Megawatts and cost $500 million with 10 operators. Rodds Bay would be 300 Megawatts and cost $300 million dollars. Using 1 Megawatt as the comparison unit we get the following; Rodds bay cost$1 million per Mw to build. Aldonga cost $1.89 million per Megawatt to build and requires .02 operators per MW. Clive’s station cost$2.14 million per MW to build and needs.0129 operators per MW. 6.5 times Aldonga’s.
    Clive’s station will require coal, water and deal with the resultant ash. For the life of the station. Any new coal fired power station should be compelled to have carbon capture and storage to keep CO2 emission to a manageable level. This would increase the building costs and this system could take up to 25%of the station’s output dropping the power to about 525 MWs.
    Building a coal fired power station does not appear to be financially logical.
    This should be used as an example of how the Greens distort the facts and twist it with little factual truth, if any.
    First; he just failed to mention that solar farms only work when the sun is out and even then only from between 9 till 4 for max generation. (Any solar panel owner can show you this). Solar farms the World over have a power generation performance of less than 30% of rated capacity. In many cases less, depending on location.
    See; https://anero.id/energy/solar-energy
    https://anero.id/energy/wind-energy
    That means the average output for these farms would be 79.5 MWs and 90Mws respectively of unreliable, inconsistent power that could vary from maximum output to zero with the flash of a raincloud.
    The average output from these two farms would be 169.5 MWs, sometimes full output, sometimes ZERO. This is completely unacceptable in a power supply that MUST be consistent in voltage, frequency and meeting the EXACT power demand of the grid system.
    Secondly; Solar energy at the moment receive a massive subsidy of $214 per Megawatt. Remove that and the cost of solar goes through the roof. Remove that and the cost is very different. Wind subsidy is $74 per MW and they are also failing.
    See; https://www.afr.com/news/politics/renewable-energy-subsidies-to-top-28b-a-year-up-to-2030-20170313-guwo3t.
    Thirdly; Power generation from a thermal power station is 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year and if required at maximum load. It is consistent, reliable and maintains system load and frequency accurately AND supplies load as required.
    Fourthly; Operation and maintenance staff of a thermal power station is a very low percentage of generation costs, in the realm of less than 1.5%. So labor cost comparison is totally irrelevant for the power produced.
    Also the cost to build a 4x 660MW power station would be about $2 billion, so I doubt that one unit would cost $1.5 billion. It is also much cheaper to build 4 units than one unit- cost per unit. Clive would be wise to build a minimum of 2 preferably four and supply the grid. He would then be able to control the price of electricity and force the pirates to reduce their prices.
    Fifth; Carbon capture is a proven total failure from tests at Biloela power station where it required 40% of total power to pump it underground. From where, at some time it would gradually leak back up again. Thermal power stations do not require such ridiculous gimmickry and over 1600 new coal fired power stations being built throughout the World. None of which have such a power wasting useless addition, that is totally unnecessary.
    In spite of what the Greens ‘parrot’, power transmission cost is less than 1.5% of total load. So distance is of minor importance.
    Finally Tom Bradbury questioned why Clive Palmer would build a 700 Megawatt power Station when the country is desperately short of electrical energy. Whether the power is supplied to a mine or anything else it still comes out of the total power demand. If he did NOT build his own it would be coming out of a power system that is desperately short of RELIABLE and CONSISTENT power of which Clive Palmer has offered to support by generating his own power.
    Finally, Queensland is one of the few states to resist the destruction, selling or giving away (as in Liddell Power station in NSW) their thermal power stations and as such they are independently more secure and stable.

  4. In my country Spain, the economy has been ruined by the implementation of renewables. Once a reasonable competitive industrial economy is now ruined with the only jobs for the youngsters as waiters with very low salaries.

    Once we had a powerful coal industry with highly paid jobs. Now all factories are looking to run and close the same around EU. An alliance of socialist politicians, media and canny investors looking for subsidies are looking to kill or prohibit the coal, oil, gas and car manufacturing industries.

    The electricity tariff is one of the highest in the world and our unemployment is also the highest in the OECD. Taxes continue to rise to subsidize renewables and also the electricity tariffs for industries as other ways the would have to close tomorrow. Industries have to agree on mandatory cuts to supply, exarcerbaiting their desire to close down.

    This alliance of environmentalist, politicians, media and susbsidies is ver powerful unfortunately. They are looking to prohibit now oil exploration, nuclear energy and any possible competition.

    Uninformed citizens buy the argument when they receive continuous press bombard of the effect on climate change and the end of the world. We are certainly on a route of a big economic disaster in Europe for the benefit of a few.

    You are very brave to describe this great fraud of renewable energy and climate change

  5. Thank you

    I am a Retired Electrical Diagnostic Engineer from Taupo NZ Right at this moment i have laid a Claim against the New Prime Minister Jacind Ardern and her Government in the Rotorua Civil High Court.
    I am requesting that she Shut Down all our Wind Farms.
    Primarily, because they do not produce 50 Hz Sinusoidal Frequency Power.
    All Wind Farms can only ever produce a Capacitive Leading Harmonic Power Factor Energy Source known as Dirty Power which is a Mixture of Asynchronous power being Mixed with Synchronous Power.
    Not one Wind Farmed Turbine has ever produced a Legal Unit of Power for the Last Thirty Years.
    In Fact if you were able to connect all of the Output terminals of the 531,000 Wind Turbines together around the world onto One Solitary 3 Phase Cable terminated with a One Killowatt Jug filled with Water, that water would never ever Boil.
    All Wind Farm Turbines are Basisically a Three Phase Motor,and as such they have no Governor System to Ramp the Frequency up and Down ,Likewise with the Excitation Sustem to supply any reliable Voltage variations
    Hence Technically they are Completely useless and is Part of the Largest Scam and Corruption Operating in the World at the Moment
    I will be succesful in my claim in the end, because like you in Australia, none of our Grid System Controllers such as Trans Power in NZ had any of their Wind Farm Revenue Meters fitted with 50HZ 1+-% Band Pass Filters Fitted which would have discriminated between th Asynchronous Dirty Power and The Good Synchronous 50Hz Power from all inputs from Wind Farms.
    Every Consumer in Australia and NZ have been paying for energy that none of their Manufactured Appliances were ever designed for.
    I am Happy for you to use my name as it will be in the Public Arena and will ceate the Largest Energy Upheaval the World will ever Experience.

  7. A Scot down under says:

    May I ask a question?

    I am from the UK and now living in south Australia. UK wind farm owner operators struck a secret deal with the British Government where, should turbines not be able to run due to bad weather they would be paid compensation on a daily basis amounting to thousands of British pounds – have the Australian companies done the same thing with the Australian government?
