Why Heavily Subsidised & Utterly Unreliable Wind & Solar Will Wreck Your Economy

The wind and solar cult will never admit it, but coal-fired power is the backbone of Australia’s electricity grid. Without it, this country would descend into Stone Age chaos in next to no time. With the announcement that another reliable coal-fired power plant will be shuttered in a few years’ time, the response from our […]

Smug & Shameless: Exposing ‘Green’ Energy’s Dirty Slave Labour Secret

Unshackling the smug and self-righteous from the fixed and firm belief that their solar panels are saving the world, is no mean feat. The same characters also believe that the Teslas they occasionally drive to the local café and/or that they’ve strapped to their homes to capture a fraction of the six hours of solar […]

Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Are The World’s Most Expensive (Occasional) Power Sources

The Sun and wind might be free, but wind and solar power are by far the most expensive power sources, of them all. Diffuse and dilute – entirely dependent on the weather (wind – in the case of wind power, and cloud cover in the case of solar) and, in solar’s case, where the Sun […]

Battery ‘Bombs’: More Giant Renewable Energy Batteries Explode in Toxic Fireballs

‘Bombs’ are designed to store and quickly release copious amounts of energy, so are the mega-batteries said to save wind and solar from their hopeless intermittency. The notion is that giant lithium-ion batteries will quell the power delivery chaos that comes with attempting to rely on wholly weather-dependent wind power and wholly sunshine-dependent solar power; […]
