Blown Away: Australians Reject Labor’s 50% RET & Plans for Giant Wind & Solar Roll-out

  Bill Shorten’ 45% CO2 emissions reduction target and his 50% Renewable Energy Target was meant to deliver a Labor landslide. It didn’t. Bill Shorten and his acolytes believed that Australian voters would flock to his grand – ‘save the planet’ – plans for sunshine and breezes. Their propaganda wing, GetUp! made it seem like […]

Irony Overdrive: Climate Alarmists Hate Burning Coal But Love Burning Up Entire Forests

  Now that climate alarmists have hijacked energy policy, insanity is generally the order of the day. Claiming that, one day soon, we’ll all be powered by sunshine and breezes is just the beginning. On the one hand, zealots fly into an apoplectic rage when anyone mentions the prospect of using what were once ancient […]

Shorten’s Green/Labor Alliance: The Electricity ‘Bill’ Australia Simply Cannot Afford

  Voters ought to think twice before installing a Green/Labor Alliance unless their objective is to destroy Australia’s prosperity, for good. The modern Labor Party, led by Bill ‘Shifty’ Shorten, is almost unrecognisable from its roots as a party born on the back of a sheep-shearer’s strike in Queensland in the 1890s. These days, it […]

‘Clean’ Energy Kaput: Germany’s ‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ An Inevitable & Total Failure

Germany is the world leader when it comes to wind and solar and worth following, if you’re keen to return to the Dark Ages. Germans suffer Europe’s highest power prices – right up there with wind ‘powered’ Denmark and just behind South Australia, Australia’s wind and solar capital – which tops the list. Its so-called […]

No Road Back: Obsession with Intermittent Renewables Causes Monster Power Price Surge

  Thanks to coal-fired power, Australia once enjoyed the world’s most reliable and affordable power supply. Not anymore. An obsession with wind and solar – expressed in the form of $70 billion in subsidies, $billions more in government underwritten soft-loans and mandated targets, backed up with punitive fines has sent power prices into orbit. The […]

Destination Destruction: Labor’s 50% Renewable Energy Target Means Wholesale Industry Wipe-out

  Bill Shorten’s 50% RET is guaranteed to send power prices soaring, destroying whole industries and thousands of well-paid jobs. Shorten is a man ready to tax Australians out of existence, and is salivating at the prospect of delivering his blow-the-joint-up, socialist agenda. To get control of the Parliament, Labor will inevitably team up with […]

Australia’s Self-Inflicted Energy Crisis Screaming Out for Nuclear Powered Solution

  Few issues demonstrate how childish the level of political discourse is in Australia than nuclear power. Its mere mention drives the loony-left into apoplexy and moderates into hiding. Australia holds the world’s largest uranium reserves and, despite its limited three mines policy, is the world’s third-largest uranium exporter. So, it generally surprises other members […]
