No More Lip Service: The Time for Safe, Reliable & Affordable Nuclear is Right Now

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target directs more than $7 billion a year in subsidies to wind and solar and is doing precisely what it was designed to do: namely, destroying Australia’s reliable and affordable power supplies. At the political level, the scramble is now on to keep coal-fired power plants up and running, wait for it, […]

Power Shock: Renewables Meltdown Leaves Australians With Power Shortages & Crippling Power Bills

The erratic and occasional delivery of wind and solar has sent wholesale power prices into orbit and major energy users are simply being chopped from the grid when wind and/or solar output hits the floor. Consumers have just been hit with retail power bills which are between 20 and 30% higher than the same time last […]

Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Calamity All Down To Wind & Solar Chaos

  Australia’s unfolding power pricing and supply calamity reveals just how critical our coal-fired power plants are if we want power as and when we need it. Sure, there’s a choice between virtue signalling about your love of wind and solar and visceral hatred of “dirty” coal-fired power. But allow the deluded wind and sun […]

‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar Transition’s Inevitable Collision Course With Reality

The deluded few still promoting the total transition to wind and solar as ‘inevitable’ are being pounded by reality, on a daily basis. Dead calm weather is a thing; sunset is a thing. Both phenomena are inevitable, ergo, there is no way wind and solar can ever amount to meaningful power sources. Proponents have been […]

Fascist Fantasies: Net-Zero CO2 Targets Provide Perfect Path to Totalitarian Tyranny

Few realise that Hitler and his gang of monstrous thugs were the first serious wind power advocates. The Nazis destroyed tens of millions of lives and are synonymous with industrialised mass murder, but their role as champions of industrial wind power is less well-known. As Rupert Darwall put it: German obsession with renewable energy originates […]

Subsidised Suicide: Unreliable Wind & Solar Guarantee Economic Self-Destruction

Intermittent wind and solar are a guarantee of rocketing power prices and rocketing power prices are a guarantee of economic destruction. An energy-hungry world will never satisfy its needs by pinning consumers’ hopes on the weather. But that’s the model that our political betters have been pushing over the last 20 years. How we landed […]

Power Price Shock: Australia’s Renewables Disaster Proves Wind & Solar Ain’t Cheap

In a weather-dependent energy world, those lucky enough to get power when they need it are being forced to pay a king’s ransom for it. Having championed the use of tens of $billions in subsidies to destroy the coal-fired generators that gave Australia its reliable and affordable power supply, Australia’s new Federal Labor government is […]

Ingrained Insanity: Self-Inflicted Renewable Energy Disaster Leaves Australians Powerless

Australia is yet another perfect example of how to trash a power supply with heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Germany, California and Texas led the charge and Australia’s so-called renewable energy capital, South Australia was amongst the front runners. SA set the tone with Australia’s first statewide blackout – during a spring […]

House of Cards: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Delivers Total Energy System Collapse

A house of cards has more structural integrity than a power generation system that depends on sunshine and breezes. Australia’s unfolding renewable energy debacle is a case in point. Total daily collapses solar output (aka ‘sunset’) and total collapses in wind power output (aka ‘calm weather’) are at the heart of a power pricing and […]

Blackout Nation: Australians Latest Victims of Subsidised Wind & Solar Chaos

That Australia’s Eastern Grid is on the brink of collapse with a complete ‘system black’ on the cards comes as no surprise. The $7 billion in annual RET subsidies pocketed by wind and solar generators were designed to allow them to underbid Australia’s reliable and affordable coal-fired generators, destroying their profitability and, ultimately, driving them […]
