Quiet Achiever: While PM Keeps Talking About Gas, Coal Just Keeps On Powering Australia

The Federal Coalition’s ‘plan’ to power Australia with gas-fired power plants it has yet to build, with gas supplies it does not have sounds more like palliative care than a cure for its self-inflicted power pricing and supply calamity. Having wrecked our once reliable grid by subsidising chaotically intermittent wind and solar, it seems it’s […]

Wilderness Wipeout: Tasmania’s Pristine Environment Threatened By Monster Wind Farm

Tasmania’s rugged North is one of Australia’s natural wonders, but not for much longer if Chinese wind developers have their way. Tasmania’s rare and endangered Wedge Tailed Eagle is already under threat, being slice and diced with impunity by its existing wind farms on the North-West and North-East coasts. Now another monster wind farm is […]

Suicidal Tendencies: Australia’s Energy Policy Designed to Destroy Industry, Business & Jobs

  Even before the coronavirus lockdowns, Australian business was under threat from rocketing power prices and an unreliable supply, thanks an obsession with subsidised wind and solar. At a time when every industry and business is looking for some sign of sense and reason from policymakers, instead of delivering a raft of policies that just […]

Wicked Waste: Voter Fury At The Staggering & Mounting Cost of Australia’s Wind & Solar Subsidies

  By throwing another lazy $billion dollars at intermittent wind and solar, PM Scott Morrison has not only lost the constituency that voted for him, he’s lost the plot. 20 years ago, Australians enjoyed the cheapest power in the world; now they the prices they suffer are up there with the world’s most expensive. All […]

‘Green’ Insanity: Why Chaotic Wind & Solar Are No Answer to World’s Woes

Suddenly, the Australian press are treating wind power with the contempt it deserves, due to an about-face by former Greens leader, Bob Brown. True it is you won’t hear Dr Bob explaining why heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind power is a meaningless power source. Bob won’t be talking about the toxic lakes of heavy […]

‘RE-ligion for Rich People’: Green Guru – Michael Shellenberger Slams Hopelessly Unreliable Wind & Solar

  Environmentalists ready to slam never reliable wind and solar and back ever reliable nuclear are rare birds, indeed. Michael Shellenberger is such an animal. Lauded by environmentalists in the US, Shellenberger is not so much crusading for the environment, but waging a war against the hypocritical and pompous who drive global warming alarmism; a […]

Power to the People: Australian Voters Demand Reliable & Affordable Electricity & Coal Just Keeps on Delivering

The 2019 Federal Election was billed as a referendum on ‘Climate Change’. The Green/Labor Alliance promised an all wind and sun powered future, starting with a 50% RET and a crippling carbon dioxide gas tax, dressed up as a 45% CO2 emissions reduction target. Every political pundit from Perth to Penrith picked Labor to win […]

Destination Destruction: Labor’s 50% Renewable Energy Target Means Wholesale Industry Wipe-out

  Bill Shorten’s 50% RET is guaranteed to send power prices soaring, destroying whole industries and thousands of well-paid jobs. Shorten is a man ready to tax Australians out of existence, and is salivating at the prospect of delivering his blow-the-joint-up, socialist agenda. To get control of the Parliament, Labor will inevitably team up with […]

Litigation Breakout: Victorian Wind Farm Neighbours Pursuing $Millions from Wind Developers for Noise Nuisance

  Driven mad by incessant, grinding, thumping wind turbine noise a group of Victorian farmers lawyered up and went on the offensive: they’re now counted as heroes and victors. For years, they’ve battled their local Council – the body responsible under the Public Health and Wellbeing Act to prosecute noise nuisance complaints. Their lawyer, Dominica […]

Crunch Time: Can Australia Escape its Self-Inflicted Renewable Energy Calamity Before It’s Too Late?

  Everything about Australia’s renewable energy calamity was perfectly predictable and perfectly avoidable. Throwing $60,000,000,000 in subsidies at chaotically intermittent wind and solar was a pretty good start. Placing lunatics in charge of the entire operation sealed the deal. Australia’s Eastern Grid (covering QLD, NSW, VIC, TAS, ACT & SA) is on the brink of […]
