‘Green’ Hypocrites Want Industrial Wind Turbines in YOUR Backyard, But Never in Theirs

The green is always ready to spear hundreds of giant 240m (787ft) industrial wind turbines – into your backyard, but goes nuts if the ‘favour’ might be returned. Destroying your patch of paradise is a sacrifice that he is always willing to make. When former Greens leader, Dr Bob Brown started railing about the prospect […]

Totally Unreliable Wind & Solar: Deliver Occasional Power & Guarantee Constant Chaos

Talking about wind and solar capacity is like pointing to a giant bucket, with a whole in its bottom; what’s promised and what’s delivered never match. The consumption of electricity is a here and now kind of thing. No one cares about how many windmills and solar panels there are, only that power is delivered […]

Blown Away: Actual Wind Farm Output a Chaotic Fraction of Total Capacity

The renewable energy zealot occupies a world somewhere between fantasy and delusion, ignoring the consequences of sunset and calm weather. The mainstream media headlines still scream about a surge in wind or solar capacity, what they never talk about is actual output. And there’s a good reason for that. The data above comes from Aneroid […]

Solar Eclipsed: Renewable Energy Investors Fret as Share Price Plummets

The hopes of renewable energy investors depend on subsidies to wind and solar lasting forever. Sadly, for those with skin in the game, the longevity of the subsidies, targets, mandates, penalties and fines – that make intermittent wind and solar profitable – are limited. The idea was, of course, that after a decade or so […]

Nuclear Power: Safe, 24/7 CO2 Free Generation – What On Earth is Australia Waiting For?

Tell someone from the first world that the world’s 3rd biggest uranium producer banned nuclear power generation and you’ll be met with bewilderment. But, that’s precisely the case: 20 years ago, the country with the largest uranium reserves in the world placed a ban on nuclear power stations; unlike the 30 Countries around the Globe […]

Wedge-Tail Wipeout: Tasmanian Wind Farms Threaten Eagle Extinction

  Cars, cats and skyscrapers don’t kill Eagles, but 60 m wind turbine blades with their tips travelling at 350 Kph routinely smash them out of existence. In Australia’s designated National Park, Tasmania, its peculiar species of Wedge-Tailed Eagle is both rare and endangered. Now it faces the existential threat of ever more and even […]

Victoria’s Suicidal 50% Renewable Energy Target Set to Wreck Grid & Drive Power Prices Into Orbit

Want to know what a 50% RET does to grid stability and power prices, then look no further than South Australia. Despite some desperate wind industry propaganda efforts suggesting that South Australians are currently enjoying 1970s power prices, Australia’s renewable energy capital still pays the world’s highest power prices – thanks to its ludicrous 50% Renewable Energy […]
