Wind Power Output Collapses Driving Wholesale Power Market Chaos

Random 3,000 to 4,000 MW wind power output collapses at the heart of Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity. In a, don’t say we told you so moment, Australia’s self-inflicted renewable energy chickens are coming home to roost. Power rationing is now routine and power prices are soaring out of control. What’s depicted above – courtesy […]

Renewable Energy Delusion: Counting Staggering Cost of Wind & Solar Obsession

The notion that we’ll soon be exclusively powered by wind and solar is an appalling delusion, but one which comes with a staggering price tag. Sure, the wind and sun are free, but attempting to rely upon chaotically generated wind and solar power is an altogether different prospect. Adding wind turbines and solar panels to […]

Power Cuts & Rocketing Prices All Part of Australia’s Wonderful Wind & Solar ‘Transition’

Australians are getting a bitter taste of their ‘inevitable’ renewable energy transition: power rationing and rocketing power prices. What’s depicted above is the weather-dependent power generation chaos at the heart of Australia’s renewable energy-driven power pricing and supply calamity. The dismal data – courtesy of Aneroid Energy – is the output delivered by Australian wind […]

All Wind & Promises: New US Study Reveals Another Great ‘Green’ Jobs Hoax

The rocketing power prices caused by subsidised wind and solar have destroyed thousands of jobs in manufacturing and mineral processing, for starters. But, retorts the renewable energy rent seeker, think of all the green jobs ‘created’ by the wind and solar industries. Whether you call it a ‘Green New Deal’ or a ‘Great Green Reset’, […]

Rural America Tells Wind Industry to ‘Stick Its Turbines Where The Sun Don’t Shine’

America’s farmers have rejected the pitch that 600-700-foot-high wind turbines and endless seas of solar panels are a surefire path to peace and prosperity. Rural Americans are angry, organised and lawyered up. These are people who will not become roadkill for the renewable energy rent seekers determined to destroy their peaceful and prosperous communities. The […]

No Net-Zero: China’s Rise Built On Insatiable Demand for Cheap & Reliable Coal-Fired Power

The economic and military rise of China is based on coal-fired power, and a firm rejection of the suicidal net-zero emissions targets adopted by their Western opponents. China’s love affair with coal and nuclear power continues to flourish and, contrary to Western myth, the CCP has turned on unreliable wind and solar, with a vengeance […]

Prices Double: Obsession With Subsidised Wind & Solar Causes Runaway Power Prices

Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity is the product of policies deliberately designed to wreck reliable and affordable power supplies. Massive and seemingly endless subsidies to chaotically intermittent wind and solar have done what they were designed to do: drive the owners of reliable coal-fired power generators to the wall, by allowing wind and solar […]

Wrecking Ball: Net Zero CO2 Emissions Targets Guarantee Economic Armageddon

Driven by climate alarmists and rent seekers ready to profit from the wind and solar subsidy scam, net zero carbon dioxide emissions targets are just the latest woke wheeze to grip our political betters. The idea that modern economies can function without the energy generated by fossil-fuels (whether consumed by motorcars or in power generation) […]

Coal Hard Fact: Fossil Fuel The Central Foundation For Modern Human Civilisation

The miserable misanthropes and neo-Marxists reckon that fossil fuels are an evil to be driven back to the depths from whence they came. Except, of course, when it comes to their own selfish energy needs. Spend a week gathering dung and twigs to cook meals over a smoky fire in an unlit hut, and you’ll […]

No Mystery: Calm Weather & Sunset Root Cause of Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

The relationship between weather-dependent wind/sunshine dependent solar and rocketing power prices is crystal clear, so too the post ‘transition’ phenomenon of power rationing caused by sunset and/or calm weather. Australia isn’t alone in experiencing a power pricing and supply calamity, all its very own making; Germans, Danes and Californians have enjoyed much the same and […]
