Endless Subsidies For Unreliable Wind & Solar are an Economic Suicide Pact

Australia’s renewable energy target has subsidised wind and solar to the tune of more than $60 billion, wrecked its grid and driven power prices through the roof. Its manufacturing industry is in tatters (tens of thousands of jobs have disappeared forever); energy-intensive mineral processors, such as aluminium, copper lead and zinc smelters are on life […]

Carbon Drive: Asia’s Economic Future Built on Cheap & Reliable Coal-Fired Power

Between them, China, India, Indonesia, Japan and Vietnam have plans for another 600 coal-fired power plants. Much to the horror of the West’s climate evangelists, Asian demand for coal knows no bounds. Pinning their belief that these countries would plump for “cheap” wind and solar, instead of “dirty, polluting” coal, the wind and solar acolytes […]

Economic Climate Change: China’s Wind & Solar ‘Industries’ Doomed as CCP Slashes Subsidies

As China’s love affair with coal and nuclear power flourishes, the CCP has turned on unreliable wind and solar, with a vengeance. Of course, you don’t become an economic and military power overnight relying upon sunshine and breezes for your energy. No doubt China will continue to flood the world with second-rate wind turbines and […]

Biden’s Big ‘Green’ Dirty Secret: America’s Solar Industry Depends on Slave Labour

Joe Biden and his Squad are eager to carpet America wall-to-wall with solar panels built by thousands of Uighur slaves under the control of the CCP. The reason that China is able to dominate the market for solar panels isn’t about superior manufacturing techniques or Confucian ideals. No, it’s about very cheap wages. So cheap […]

Russian Resurgence: Putin’s Grand Plan to Meet Insatiable Demand for Coal in Asia

As the wind and solar cult would have it, ‘coal is dead’ and wind and solar power are the gloating villains that killed it. Well, that’s the meme, anyway. Back on Earth, coal-fired power and the coal industry that fuels it are in very robust health, indeed. Outside of the virtue signalling Western nations that […]

Insatiable: Coal-Fired Power Continues its Dominance in Energy Hungry China

The anti-energy/anti-civilisation squad keep predicting the end of coal and coal-fired power. But in China and India the demand for the black stuff – and the cheap and reliable power it delivers – is insatiable, and rising. Notwithstanding a global economic wind down during the Covid-19 outbreak, Chinese demand for coal is about to reach […]

Growth Engines: Coal and Nuclear Powering China’s Economic Rise & Global Ambitions

No country ever got rich without abundant supplies of affordable energy. It’s all very well for the well-fed, smug and pompous to lecture others about the virtues of wind and solar. But when you’re dragging hundreds of millions out of agrarian poverty, virtue signalling runs a very poor second. And, so it is, with China. […]

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 […]

Solar Slaves: China Dominates Market For Solar Panels Using Forced Uighur Labour

The smugness exhibited by the owners of solar panels is in its own special class. Pious and self-righteous, these characters are quick to pontificate about their holier than thou credentials. Of course, plastering one’s roof with solar panels is all about saving the planet; and has nothing to do with bleeding their neighbours dry – […]

Fossil Foiled: Climate Industrial Complex Can’t Curb China’s Insatiable Demand for Coal-Fired Power

The growth in China’s demand for coal-fired power – and the construction of new plants to generate it – is a case of full steam ahead. Where the climate industrial complex is delighted by the destruction of reliable and affordable power supplies in the West, it stands powerless against China’s insatiable demand for coal-fired electricity.
