Tasmania’s Pathetic Wind Power Push: Plug Gets Pulled on Plans for All RE Future

These days, it’s almost impossible for wind power promoters to finish a sentence without reference to batteries or pumped hydro. In the beginning, when the wind industry said ‘let there be light’, they meant only occasionally, and only when the wind was blowing, just right. Now that the average punter has worked out that the […]

Australian Business Despairs: Renewables Obsessed Energy Minister Throws Economy to the Wolves

Australia’s Energy Minister, Josh Frydenberg’s obsession with wind and solar is literally crippling his country: rocketing power prices have left tens of thousands of families powerless; and energy hungry businesses are gobsmacked at his every gormless utterance. Threatened by the Monash Forum (a group of 30 or so Liberal and National MPs), Frydenberg has taken […]

Threat to Endless Subsidies Sends Australia’s Renewable Energy Companies Into Meltdown

Wind and solar power were both founded on lies and myth, and can only exist when and where massive subsidies are practically perpetual. Now that it’s become impossible for them to hide the obvious relationship between intermittent wind and solar and rocketing power prices and grid instability, the pleading to maintain the subsidies that sustain them, […]

Redbank Power Station’s Renaissance: Bitcoiners Sign Up to Buy Cheap & Reliable Coal-Fired Power

  For power consumers searching for the cheapest and most reliable power, coal is the only answer. Crypto-currencies, like Bitcoin, have been a bonanza; not only for risk-hungry techie investors (not to mention risk-averse drug smugglers and money launderers), they’ve been a windfall for power generators – provided those generators can deliver it reliably and […]

Eco-Irony: Power-Starved Australian Households Switch to Scavenged Firewood to Beat Winter’s Chill

Let eco-zealots get control of your country’s power generation system, and rocketing power prices follow as night follows day. Those countries whose energy policies have been hijacked by renewable energy rent seekers – pumping heavily subsidised, utterly unreliable and completely chaotic wind and solar – have watched their power prices double in a veritable heartbeat. […]

Renewables Rent-Seeker Round-Up: Time to Shame the Bad, the Worse & the Ugly

The next generation of Australians will be eager to string up those responsible for turning an energy superpower into an international joke. Coal, gas and uranium rich Australia shouldn’t be paying the highest power prices in the world; and it shouldn’t be cutting power to businesses and hospitals during hot weather, when demand spikes and […]

Chaos Reigns Supreme: Erratic Wind and Solar Destroy Australia’s Once Reliable Power Grid

  The natural result of plugging into wind and solar power is absolute chaos. It’s like inviting the Hells Angels to your daughter’s 21st birthday party and not expecting mayhem. Those that kid themselves otherwise, fall into roughly 2 camps: dreamy, eco-zealots, happy to ignore everything the real world throws at them (especially facts antithetical […]
