Fatal Attraction: Wind & Solar Obsession Causing Rocketing Power Prices & Frozen Grannies

Australia’s wind and solar obsession has driven power prices through the roof and the poor and elderly to early graves. Staying warm in the depth of winter is no longer just a matter of turning up the dial on the AC, for the poorest and most vulnerable it’s a daily battle for survival. In the […]

Growing-Up: Australians Get Serious About Serious Energy, Demanding Nuclear Power, Now

All of a sudden, Australians are talking about a nuclear powered future, like there’s no tomorrow. Having recognised that climate alarmists will never relent in their crusade against carbon dioxide gas – being a proxy for eradicating cheap, reliable and affordable coal-fired power – anyone interested in a future where hot showers and cold beer […]

Atomic Ascendancy: Australians Now See Nuclear Power as the Natural Choice

  All of a sudden, any Australian with half a brain is talking about nuclear power generation. Not so long ago, only the bravest would utter the ‘N’ word out loud. Howled down by the anti-nuke brigade, in the beginning, and later berated by zealots pushing heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar, those […]

Guaranteed ‘Green’ Energy Punishment: US Renewable Portfolio Standards Send Power Prices Soaring

That reliance on chaotically intermittent wind and solar sends power prices into orbit is no surprise to a German, South Australian or Dane. That RE obsessed trio slug it out for the honour of suffering the world’s highest power prices (see above). Try as they might, RE zealots simply can’t escape the bleeding obvious: South […]

Reality Check: Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar No Substitute for Ever-Reliable Coal-Fired Power

30 years, $trillions in subsidies and yet the combined output of wind and solar amounts to little more than a rounding error. Most sane adults would call that a monumental F-A-I-L. Meanwhile, ever reliable coal-fired power just keeps on delivering, where never-reliable wind and solar deliver nothing but a subsidy stream to their rent-seeking owners. […]

Nuclear No-Brainer: Why Australia’s Ban on Nuclear Power Generation Defies Common Sense & Logic

  Every day we’re bombarded with warnings about CO2 incinerating the planet, wiping out entire species and otherwise spoiling our day. For those subscribing to the ‘end is nigh’ scenario, all that seems fair enough. But what doesn’t stand much scrutiny is the fact that the planet’s doomsayers run silent on the need for nuclear […]

Rent-Seeker Rage: Wind & Solar Lobbies Outraged as Energy Minister Signals Sundown for Subsidies

  Death and taxes are certainties, then there’s the certainty of rent-seeker outrage when subsidies to wind and solar are cut or even threatened. The wind back in subsidies across Europe has all but destroyed the wind industry: in Germany this year a trifling 60 onshore wind turbines have been erected, so far. Twelve countries […]
