Economic Mercy Mission: Monash Forum’s Drive for Reliable & Affordable Power Gets Steamed-Up

  Coal powers Australia: not sunshine, not breezes and, if you’re told otherwise, you’re being conned. So, keeping big base-load power generators in the game matters. That’s if you’re concerned about having power available 24 x 365 at prices that both businesses and households can afford. It’s that simple metric that has motivated the Monash […]

Atomic Reaction: Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle Prompts Push for Nuclear Power

Turnbull’s Energy Dilemma: Pro-Coal Monash Forum Threatens PM’s Tenuous Grip on Power

  Politics is a cruel caper and, in Australia, the politics of power is merciless. Malcolm Turnbull has just lost 30 Newspolls in a row; the apparently fatal number that gave him licence to knife a sitting PM, Tony Abbott in September 2015.
