Backing Net-Zero Emissions & Not Backing Nuclear Power Generation: You Can’t Be Serious

The anti-capitalist, anti-progress, anti-human climate zealot reveals himself by backing net-zero emissions while rejecting nuclear power generation. The crony capitalist pursuing a net-zero target is, of course, easy to spot; with him, it’s a case of follow the money. Whip up the fear and imminent climate catastrophe and then point to the only ‘solution’ on […]

Growing Up: Nuclear Powered Submarine Deal Paves Way For Nuclear Powered Future

The growing military threat posed by China has forced a little maturity upon Australia’s political betters. This week, the PM announced plans to scrap the contract to purchase a dozen diesel-powered French submarines (aka the ‘dud subs’) that were set to cost Australian taxpayers around $100 billion and which wouldn’t be delivered much before 2040. […]

Destination Destruction: Australia’s Wind & Solar Policy A National Suicide Pact

Australia’s energy policy is a self-inflicted calamity driven by an obsession with intermittent wind and solar. Only a complete collapse of the grid will cause those who pretend to govern us to get a grip. But, thankfully, a complete ‘system black’ is on the cards this coming summer. The Federal Energy Minister, Angus Taylor has […]

Emergency Response: Wind & Solar Debacle Forces Government to Build Gas-Fired Power Plants

Australia’s self-inflicted renewable energy calamity was as perfectly predictable, as it was perfectly avoidable. The cancer started in wind and solar obsessed South Australia; renowned for Australia’s highest retail power prices and its most unreliable power delivery. But the disease soon spread, which is not surprising given that it all started with the Federal government’s […]

Government’s Grid Fix: Power Consumers Forced to Pay Coal-Fired Plants to Remain Online

  Having gouged $billions from power consumers and taxpayers to subsidise hopelessly unreliable wind and solar, the Federal government wants us to pay $millions more to undo the damage done to our once reliable power supply by its Renewable Energy Target. The point and purpose of subsidies and mandated targets favouring wind and solar was […]

S-O-S: Coal-Fired Power Only Answer to Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

  Faced with rocketing power prices and a grid on the brink of collapse, the Morrison Federal government remains committed to the policies that caused the debacle. Instead of ensuring the survival of Australia’s extensive coal-fired power fleet and building new High Efficiency Low Emissions coal-plants, the PM and his Energy Minister have selected a […]

Gassed Up: All-In Policy Brawl Over Renewables Driven Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

  The adage that success has a thousand fathers, whereas failure’s an orphan applies to Australia’s self-inflicted renewable energy disaster, one that no one wants to own. 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 the ‘last […]

No Future: Australia’s Renewable Energy Roadmap = Road To Economic Ruin & Despair

  Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity was entirely self-inflicted; the consequence of an obsession with heavily subsidised and totally unreliable wind and solar. The recent policy announcement by PM, Scott Morrison (referred to as his ‘Energy Roadmap’) is like using a Band-Aid to treat a severed leg. Everything that features as an ‘answer’ to […]

Déjà vu: ‘New’ Coalition Power Policy Means Australia’s Energy Crisis Continues Unabated

  Throttled by Draconian lockdowns, the Australian economy is on life support, the only hope of resuscitating it is by restoring reliable and affordable power, to all and sundry. Last week the Federal Liberal/National Coalition announced what purported to be a cure, but, in reality, it’s more like palliative care. PM, Scott Morrison and his […]

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 […]
