Staggering Cost: Offshore Wind Power 25 Times More Expensive Than Coal, Gas & Nuclear

Wind power is utterly pointless on every level, having been abandoned centuries ago for pretty obvious reasons, starting with the weather. The oft heard retort from those fighting the prospect of wind turbines being speared into their backyards, is “why don’t they put them offshore?” These are the characters who are simply too gutless to […]

Scoundrel’s Paradise: Subsidised Wind & Solar The Greatest Scam on Earth

  The only way of explaining the push for subsidised wind and solar is money. And when we say money, we mean hundreds of billions of dollars of other people’s money. In Australia alone, the Federal Government’s Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target will redirect over $60 billion in subsidies to wind and large-scale solar operators (all […]

Renewable Energy ‘Transition’: More Wind Power, Higher Prices, More Blackouts

The chaos that comes with intermittent wind and solar get serious in summer, when demand surges, the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. This summer, the barbecue stopper will literally be another round of what’s euphemistically called “demand management”: Soviet era power rationing, an integral part of Australia’s ludicrous attempt to run on sunshine […]

Volt Wars: Why Your Neighbour’s Solar Panels Are Cooking Your Computer & Blowing Your Lightglobes, Etc

Electricity generation started off as an extension of science. These days, it’s all about vanity and virtue signalling. Not least those millions of shiny solar panels, which we’ve all helped subsidise – to allow our neighbours to bask in their own virtuous glow. At the theoretical level – when the sun is up and the […]

Shorten’s Stranglehold: Labor’s 50% RET & ‘Carbon’ Tax Threatens Economic Annihilation

The prospect of a Shorten lead Labor government brings with it a 50% RET and a 45% emissions reduction target (an enormous ‘carbon’ tax by any other name). The consequence will be spiralling power prices and Soviet-era power rationing, whenever the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. As every South Australian knows, attempting to […]

Wrecking Ball: Labor’s 50% RET Guarantees Wholesale Economic Destruction

  Anyone wanting to understand what a 50% RET can do to an economy, look no further than South Australia. Once upon a time, thanks to cheap and reliable coal-fired power, it was a manufacturing heartland. In the 1970s, Adelaide was home to 2 (General Motors Holden and Chrysler – taken over by Mitsubishi in […]

Bill Shorten’s ALP: Loves Subsidising Chaotic Wind & Solar/Hates Real Industry & Real Jobs

  Australia was once an energy superpower, supporting mining, mineral processing, manufacturing and energy-intensive agriculture (think irrigators, dairies, aquaculture and horticulture). Pretty soon, if Bill Shorten’s Labor Party gets anywhere near the controls, power prices will be driven to astronomical levels and those industries driven out of existence. Hundreds of thousands of well-paid, meaningful jobs […]
