Total Joke: Australian Wind Farms Regularly Deliver Tiny Fraction of Their Total Capacity

If Australia’s wind turbine fleet hadn’t cost power consumers $20 billion to build, the joke would almost be funny. Spread from Far North Queensland to the West Coast of South Australia, on the Eastern Grid, Australia’s wind farms are located in 5 States: Tasmania, South Australia, Victoria, NSW and Queensland (see below). In SA they’re […]

Wanna Wreck Your Economy? Just Add Unreliable Subsidised Wind & Solar

  Australia’s energy system is a diabolical mess, largely thanks to the Federal Government’s Renewable Energy Target. But the Feds can’t take all the blame, in all instances. A number of States – usually headed by Trotskyites, like Chairman Dan Andrews – are determined to destroy the last vestiges of their economies. What the Fed’s […]

No-Brainer: Nuclear Power Only Solution For Those Fretting About Carbon Dioxide Gas

Nuclear power is the only stand-alone power generation source that does not generate carbon dioxide gas in the process. So why is it that those fretting about human-generated carbon dioxide gas aren’t screaming its merits from the rooftops? There are plenty among them who fit the category of ‘human hater’ – the kind who see […]

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 […]

Energy Means Life: Fossil Fuel Use Continues to Surge And The World’s All The Better For It

Grinding poverty is synonymous with the absence of reliable and affordable fossil fuel-based energy systems. Whether it’s oil for transport, gas for heating and cooking or coal for electricity, any country with a living standard worth having has access to at least two or more of the foregoing. Take a peek at a night-time satellite […]

Last Man Standing: China Defies Biden’s Climate Crusade Against Coal-Fired Power

The CCP won’t let America’s climate industrial complex interfere with its economic ambitions, key to which is its burgeoning supply of reliable and affordable coal-fired power. Whereas Australia’s suicidal renewable energy obsession has destroyed this country’s competitive advantage, the only interest China has in wind turbines and solar panels is making them and flogging them […]

Punishing Price of ‘Virtue’ Signalling: Canberra Power Price Surge Follows 100% RE Push

  When George Orwell described ‘doublethink’ and ‘doublespeak’ he surely had the renewable energy zealot in mind. In the Nation’s capital, Canberra the swamp is lined with renewable energy rent seekers – always on the prowl for more and more extensive subsidies, soft loans and favourable treatment from the Federal government – and populated by […]

Beyond Help: Power Rationing New Normal in Wind & Solar ‘Powered’ South Australia

South Australians know an awful lot about sweating in the dark and, thanks to their fixation on wind and solar power, its hapless proletariat will get to learn a whole lot more. Renowned by the renewable cult as Australia’s ‘wind and solar capital’, SA suffers Australia’s highest power prices and, quite naturally, Australia’s highest rate […]

Busting The Renewable Energy ‘Storage’ Myth: It’s All About The Numbers (And The Weather)

Promoters reckon the hopeless intermittency of wind and solar can cured by “storing” it – using insanely expensive lithium batteries or pumped hydro or something vaguely resembling a perpetual motion machine. None of the charlatans pushing the grid-scale storage of electricity generated by subsidised wind and solar have apparently cottoned on to the laws of […]

It’s Ever-Reliable Coal-Fired Power That’s Powering Australia & Will Be For Years to Come

Another burst of calm weather has proved the point: anyone who believes wind power is a meaningful power source, is delusional. The wind and solar cult keep telling us that we’re a heartbeat away from an all wind and sun powered future. The same crowd also claims that coal-fired power is dead as the dodo. […]
