Save Our Jobs: Australia’s Economic Recovery Demands Reliable & Affordable Coal-Fired Power

Blood & Gore: Mike Moore’s ‘Planet of The Humans’ Unmasks The Power & Money Behind Renewables Scam

  Apoplexy is the order of the day among ‘green’ energy zealots following the release of Mike Moore’s ‘Planet of The Humans’.

Cold Comfort: 20 Years Of Subsidies to Wind & Solar Leaves Germans Suffering World’s Highest Power Prices

No country has squandered more on subsidies to wind and solar than Germany; no country pays more for its power. Which is hardly a coincidence.
