S-O-S: Coal-Fired Power Only Answer to Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

  Faced with rocketing power prices and a grid on the brink of collapse, the Morrison Federal government remains committed to the policies that caused the debacle.

Power Brawl: Labor Backbenchers Revolt Over Ludicrous Wind & Solar Energy Targets

Having lost the un-loseable election in May last year, an angry rump of Labor backbenchers is keen to ditch the party’s suicidal renewable energy policies, with a view to recovering the ground they lost trying to win the sandalista vote in the inner city goat’s cheese circle. Australia’s economic future depends, in no small part, […]

Making Money From Power: How Virtue Signalling Corporations Profit From Unreliable Wind & Solar

Ignore the voluble pomposity and faux moral piety, the sole motivation driving the all wind & solar crowd is money. Lots and lots of other people’s money.

Shredded: Debunking The Endless Myths Pitched by Renewable Energy Propagandists

The bigger the lie, the more likely the dupe will believe it, which is the game played by renewable energy rent seekers with the line that subsidised wind and solar are the answer to our economic recovery.

JobSeeker: Australia’s Economic Recovery Demands End to Subsidies For Unreliable Wind & Solar

Putting a million Australians back to work requires a complete overhaul of Australia’s suicidal energy policies.

Renewable Energy Job Myth: Subsidised Wind and Solar Destroy Far More Jobs Than They Ever ‘Create’

The principles of economics are not hard, nor are they a mystery. Jobs require viable businesses, viable businesses require cheap and reliable electricity. Deprive businesses of cheap and reliable power and those businesses will very soon cease to exist. Those truisms, however, continue to fall on deaf ears in Australia’s so-called ‘wind power capital’, South […]

Snap Back From COVID-19 Crisis? Try Snapping Out Of The Obsession With Wind & Solar

  COVID-19 has left Australia’s economy a victim of involuntarily euthanasia; what’s not been wiped out by insane renewable energy policies has been finished off by government enforced lockdowns. Australia’s PM, Scott Morrison talks about the economy enjoying a “snap back”, once the restrictions on business and movements are lifted. As if the deliberate destruction […]

Recession Buster: Australia’s Economic Recovery Depends On Cheap & Reliable Coal-Fired Power

  A Chinese virus has taken up where Australia’s suicidal energy policies left off; crushing the entire economy, rather than just energy hungry industries, like manufacturing and mineral processing. Well, in truth, it’s the political reaction to COVID-19 that’s done the damage, rather than the pathogen itself. Having destroyed the hospitality and tourism sectors overnight, […]
