Wake Up Australia: Time to Kill Renewable Subsidies and Avoid California’s Wind & Solar Disaster

Those who ignore history are doomed to suffer it all over again, even if it’s the recent history of California’s mass blackouts. Of course, Australians need only look to South Australia (its wind and solar capital) for an understanding of how an obsession with subsidised renewables is guaranteed to send power prices into orbit and […]

Rank Hypocrisy: Climate Warriors Not Promoting Nuclear Power Simply Can’t Be Serious

In a post Covid world, anyone railing about carbon dioxide gas and not promoting nuclear power sounds positively unhinged. If CO2 really was about to destroy the planet, Extinction Rebellion, Greta and her worshippers would be talking about switching to nuclear power like their lives depended on it. Instead, for reasons that escape the logical […]

Code Black: Mass Blackouts Just Beginning of California’s Renewable Energy Debacle

California’s a place renowned for its woolly-headed thinking, not least its suicidal obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar. A couple weeks back, during a blistering Californian Summer, a spike in electricity demand (think millions of air conditioners running at full tilt) combined with calm weather, desert cloud cover and, later, sunset to leave millions […]

Reality Check: Green Energy Fantasies Threaten Post COVID Economic Recovery

There’s debate over which did more harm: the coronavirus or government policy responses to it. But there’s no argument that our economic recovery requires reliable and affordable electricity. Which means that the current arguments about recharging economies using heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar are as dangerous as they are delusional. Ross McKitrick […]

Spies Like US: CCP Using Wind Farms to Infiltrate American Military Bases

Chinese Communist Party influence seems to bob up in the strangest places these days, including wind farms in West Texas. Thanks to the coronavirus, 2020 will stand as the year when Western powers woke up to the fact that China is fixed on the long game, with a plan to undermine its enemies by fair […]

Keep It Simple Stupid: Why No Country Will Ever Be Powered By Wind & Solar Power Alone

Australia’s blackout capital, South Australia is what happens when hubris and ideology trumps sound engineering. After a run of mass blackouts, load shedding and a complete statewide blackout in September 2016, South Australia (Australia’s wind and solar capital) was forced to spend a fortune on diesel powered jet engines, open cycle gas turbines and, later, […]

RE Enthusiasm Curbed: Grid Manager Shutting Off Wind & Solar To Prevent Mass Blackouts

When Mother Nature is working the controls, anything can happen; and, with wind and solar power generation, it usually does. Massive surges and collapses in wind and solar power output – think storm fronts followed by dead calm weather and/or that daily event referred to as ‘sunset’ – are something that the system we once […]

Endless $Billions: Counting The Hidden Cost of Renewables on Electricity Prices

Uncovering the true costs of intermittent wind and solar is like playing hide and seek while blindfolded. In Australia, the subsidies doled out under the Federal Government’s Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target and its domestic cousin, the Small-Scale Renewable Energy Scheme, that covers rooftop solar and other household rorts, adds at least $4 billion a year […]

Wrecking Ball: Democrat’s Deluded Wind & Solar Plan Would Destroy US Economy Overnight

  Democrats are determined to deliver California’s renewable energy debacle to all and sundry. If Sleepy Joe Biden, AOC and her Squad get the keys to the White House this November, their New ‘Green’ Deal is guaranteed to deliver rocketing power prices and rolling blackouts across the USA. While there’s been plenty of lip service […]

Totally Choked: Australian Wind Power Investment Suffers Massive Collapse

Renewable energy rent seekers are fuming because Australia’s power grid can’t take any more of their chaotically generated wind and solar power. The massive daily spikes and collapses in wind and solar power output have made the grid manager’s life a living hell: Hopeless Joke: Australia’s Wind Industry Keeps On Failing to Deliver the Goods As […]
