Leaders in South Africa did their Homework. Saying NO to Wind Turbines!

STT followers might have tumbled to the fact that we’ve been pretty heavily focused on SA over the last month.

However, in this post, we head a few thousand clicks, west across the Indian Ocean to another ‘SA’; this time South Africa, which appears entirely sensible enough to be able to avoid the power supply and pricing calamity unfolding in South Australia.

If oil and coal are “fossil fuels”, and wind and solar are “renewables”, even though they are intermittent and undependable, I’d like to introduce the new term “inexhaustibles” to describe any power source that is dependable and the fuel is limitless. The only power source that meets that description is nuclear, and the safest implementation of nuclear power is the Liquid Fluoride Thermal Reactor (LFTR) design.

    • I agree, Kev! People don’t understand, that wind & solar are novelty energies. Nuclear is getting safer and less costly all the time. It will stand the test of time, and it is completely reliable.
