Life Support: Government’s Obsession With Subsidised Wind & Solar Destroyed South Australia’s Economy

South Australia has more wind and solar capacity per capita than any other place on the planet. It also suffers the world’s highest retail power prices and has been the butt of international jokes thanks to a run of mass blackouts, including one that plunged parts of the state into Stone Age darkness for more […]

Start Me Up: Cheap & Reliable Coal-Fired Power Only Path to Economic Recovery

  The Australian businesses under threat from insane renewable energy policies and rocketing power prices, have been finished off by government enforced lockdowns. With the Federal government outlining a plan to, ever so gradually, lift its COVID-19 restrictions on business, life and liberty, talk has inevitably turned to resuscitating an economy on life support. Earlier during […]

Climate Cult Claims More Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar Solution to Coronavirus Recovery

Efforts to wreck power supplies by forcing us to rely on sunshine and breezes share a few parallels with the panic-driven response to COVID-19. The threat of imminent doom (real enough for some vulnerable individuals in one case and fictional in the other); lots of self-appointed ‘experts’ dictating the terms (usually well outside their given […]

A Bigger Picture: Thank Malcolm Turnbull For Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

Malcolm Turnbull’s miserable presence endures in the Snowy 2.0 pumped hydro project, a white elephant that’ll cost taxpayers at least $10billion. Before he was ditched as PM by his Liberal Party over his pitch to expand subsidies to chaotically intermittent wind and solar and to extend those subsidies until the end of time, Malcolm Turnbull […]

Hopeless Joke: Australia’s Wind Power Output Just Keeps On Collapsing, Time & Time Again

If you’re looking for a definition of ‘hopeless joke’, look no further than the daily contribution of Australia’s 6,960 MW industrial wind power fleet. One hackneyed myth relied upon by the wind cult in this country (everywhere, really) is that the “wind is always blowing somewhere”. Which is complete and utter bollocks. Spread from Far […]

Avoidable Self-Harm: Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar Destroying Australia’s (Once) Reliable Power Grid

  An obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar poses an existential threat to Australia’s power grid. So far, it’s been limited to “demand management” (a euphemism for controlled blackouts) and in wind and solar obsessed South Australia, plenty of uncontrolled blackouts, including the big one in September 2016 when the whole State went black: […]
