Subsidised Wind & Solar: Guaranteed Path to Rocketing Prices & Blackouts

Australia’s diabolically destructive renewable energy policies have led to rocketing power prices and a grid on the brink of collapse. Australian power consumers currently connected to the Eastern Grid (that connects Queensland, New South Wales, ACT, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania) have no idea just how close they are to watching their first total ‘system […]

Fear & Loathing Downunder: Australian PM’s Reliable Power Play Kills Dozens of Wind Power Projects Stone Dead

Gradually, painfully, the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers are coming to the realisation that Malcolm Turnbull’s National Energy Guarantee means the end of the greatest subsidy-soaked rort of all time. Among renewables rent-seekers, a few deluded souls are still kidding themselves that it will all blow over (so to speak), while, at the other […]

Renewable Chaos Shock Treatment: Australia’s Politicians Panic at Threat of Looming Blackouts

Australia’s self-inflicted energy ‘crisis’ is the consequence of considered and deliberate action that promoted weather dependent wind power and time-dependent solar power at the expense of the secure, reliable and affordable stuff. As the political panic spreads, it’s quite apparent, that those who created the disaster have almost no idea how resolve it. The PM, […]

America’s Top Green – Michael Shellenberger – Pushes Nuclear Future & Calls Wind & Solar ‘The Worst for the Enviroment’

In the climate alarmists’ worldwide crusade against carbon dioxide gas, only the most delusional still believe that wind and solar power add anything to their arsenal. Australia is the only G20 country with a legislated prohibition on nuclear power generation. However, the combination of the Federal government’s new National Energy Guarantee (NEG) and the associated Emissions Obligation […]

Australia’s Self-Inflicted Renewable Energy Fiasco: Product of Political Treachery

Last Sunday, STT detailed the workings of Malcolm Turnbull’s National Energy Guarantee and the associated Emissions Obligation faced by power retailers. Not that we were out to defend it. Indeed, while it has some promise of restoring stability to Australia’s electricity grid (being pushed to the brink of collapse by a ludicrous attempt to run […]

FAIL: PM’s Power Market ‘Game Changer’ Still Wedded in Delusion

Malcolm Turnbull’s attempt to save Australia’s electricity grid from imminent collapse has been tagged the National Energy Guarantee. Whether or not it guarantees that the lights stay on and the economy can keep limping along, is anybody’s guess. However, it is a guarantee of controversy. When the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers finally tumble […]

Renewables Debacle Rolls On: Power Politics Always & Everywhere About Power Prices

That a government decides to entertain a moment of self-congratulation – simply because the lights might stay on – would be understandable, if the Country in question was North Korea or Cuba. However, the primary purpose of Malcolm Turnbull’s National Energy Guarantee is just that: allowing the Federal government to claim ‘mission accomplished’, if Australia […]
