Wicked Waste: Rocketing Prices & Blackouts Only ‘Dividend’ From $60bn in Subsidies to Wind & Solar

Setting fire to cash is one way of destroying value, throwing $billions in subsidies at intermittent wind and solar is just as effective.

Mission Possible: Runaway Renewable Energy Policy = Australia’s Economic Suicide Pact

It’s possible to turn an energy superpower into an economic disaster: Australia did it in less than a decade.
