Mortal Combat: Rural Communities Rally to Defeat Wind Industry’s Steamroller Strategy

Nothing invokes rage and fury in rural communities like a wind farm comprising dozens and sometimes hundreds of 300 tonne, 200-270m high industrial monstrosities. Western Victoria has been overrun with these things; once peaceful pastoral properties are encircled by them, and drowned in a cacophony of thumping, grinding low-frequency turbine noise. The wind industry and […]

Nuclear Nudge: Everyone Talking About Nuclear Power After America’s Deadly Big Freeze

Shattered dreams, dashed hopes and heavy hearts are the order of the day amongst wind and solar acolytes – thanks to the avoidable energy disasters playing out in America and Germany, during a bitter northern hemisphere winter. Sure, there are a desperate few still hanging on to the hope that it will all blow over, […]

American & German Renewables Disasters Drive Demand for Ever-Reliable Nuclear Power

The total collapse in wind and solar output during the big freezes that first struck Germany and then America provides a wake-up call for any policymaker still promoting that dangerously unreliable pair. Indeed, any politician or policy wonk still pushing wind and solar as meaningful power sources is likely to be welcomed to a facility […]

Net Loser: Subsidised Wind & Solar ‘Industries’ Destroy More Jobs Than They Ever Create

Calling wind and solar ‘industries’ is sloppy; any operation that can’t survive without massive and perpetual subsidies isn’t really an ‘industry’, at all. Industry connotes effort, output and production. Whereas the wind and solar scam involves destruction on all fronts: environmental, social and economic. The myth about so-called ‘green’ energy jobs, is just that. South […]

Power Battle: Common Sense Abandoned With Push For More Intermittent Wind & Solar

Our good friends’ logic and reason were sacrificed long ago by the High Priests of the wind and solar cult. Attempt to point out the inevitable effect of sunset on solar output and/or calm weather on wind power output and you’ll be branded ‘heretic’, before you know it. You’ll be sent off to an education […]

It’s Subsidised Wind & Solar or Meaningful Well-Paid Jobs: But You Can’t Have Both

Australian power prices went through the roof as a result of its obsession with chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar (see above). The relationship is so stark, why even a blind man, open to reality, will readily see it.  However, no amount of evidence appears to register with those who pretend to govern […]

Wrecking Ball: Australia’s Fixation With Subsidised Renewables Guarantees Economic Disaster

If the object was wrecking every last manufacturing, mineral processing and mining job, then Australia’s renewable energy policy has delivered on time and under budget. Starting in 2001 with John Howard’s Renewable Energy Target (massively expanded by Kevin Rudd in 2009), the subsidies being squandered on intermittent wind and solar are now in the order […]

Technology Tease: On The Cruel Promise of a Renewables/Hydrogen Fuelled Future

  The wind and solar industries were built on lies, run on myth and are fuelled by subsidies, so the only way forward is more of the very same. It took politicians and punters around a decade to cotton on to the hopeless unreliability and chaotic intermittency of solar and wind power.  Which required an […]

Power Politics: Want to Win Elections? Then Don’t Ignore Spiralling Electricity Prices

With Biden and the Squad in the White House, the Californian experience of spiralling power prices will soon be delivered to all Americans, thanks to a raft of suicidal renewable energy policies that are about to be landed across the USA. The energy hungry businesses and industries that Trump brought home, will soon start packing […]

How to Destroy Reliable & Affordable Power Supplies: Just Add Subsidised Wind & Solar

Australians once enjoyed the cheapest and most reliable power in the world; now they suffer the world’s highest prices and they’re lucky to get power, at all. Throwing billions at weather-dependent wind and sunshine dependent solar has had the inevitable consequence of destroying both the reliability and affordability electricity, in a country blessed with vast […]
