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 […]

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 […]

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.

Psycho Simon: Renewable Energy Zealots Incite Terrorism Against Wind & Solar Critics

As a rule, RE zealots are not only stupid and selfish, they’re invariably nasty and prone to fits of outrage and violence. Leading the gang in Australia is silver-spooner, Simon Holmes a Court. Simon has a Masters in Smug, the result of the enormous pile accumulated by his (late) billionaire corporate-raider daddy, Robert. And claims […]

Government Surrenders: PM Hoists White Flag on Australia’s Self-inflicted Renewable Energy Crisis

  With Labor threatening a 50% RET and a giant carbon tax, Australian industry is ready to pack up stumps and leave. But, instead of fighting for those industries, businesses and the jobs they create, the Liberal/National Coalition has thrown in the towel. STT had high hopes for the Energy Minister, Angus Taylor when he […]

Hypocrites Playground: Australian Renewable Energy Policy Driven By Virtue Signalling Halfwits

Reading this in Australia? Then you’re doing so, thanks to coal. You might be doing so thanks to nuclear power, if only the dimwits that profess to run this country hadn’t banned it. On any given day, between 70 and 80% of what flows through Australia’s Eastern Grid comes from coal-fired power plants. Of course, […]

Australia’s Giant Renewables Rip-Off: Counting The Colossal Cost of Pointless Virtue Signalling

Australia’s obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar has absolutely nothing to do with the climate. Although, you could be forgiven for thinking the $70 billion in subsidies set to be squandered on that pathetic pair must have some kind of environmental benefit. Otherwise, what’s the point? When the sun sets and/or calm weather sets […]
