No More Lip Service: The Time for Safe, Reliable & Affordable Nuclear is Right Now

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target directs more than $7 billion a year in subsidies to wind and solar and is doing precisely what it was designed to do: namely, destroying Australia’s reliable and affordable power supplies. At the political level, the scramble is now on to keep coal-fired power plants up and running, wait for it, […]

Taxpayer Subsidies For Rooftop Solar Designed to Allow The Rich to Rob The Poor

Renewable energy rent-seekers come in all shapes and sizes, from mega windfarm outfits to well-to-do middle-class households. And in either instance, it pays never to stand between them and a bucket of someone else’s money. Any threat to the subsidy stream is met with howls about their ‘right’ to benefit from other people’s labours. You […]

Ingrained Insanity: Self-Inflicted Renewable Energy Disaster Leaves Australians Powerless

Australia is yet another perfect example of how to trash a power supply with heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Germany, California and Texas led the charge and Australia’s so-called renewable energy capital, South Australia was amongst the front runners. SA set the tone with Australia’s first statewide blackout – during a spring […]

World’s Biggest Renewable Energy Battery Becomes World’s Biggest Joke

  The French owners of the world’s biggest battery are being sued for simply failing to deliver the goods. When Elon Musk’s 150MW battery was hooked up to the South Australian grid, the wind and solar cult rejoiced. The meme had it that – with a few thousand more just like it, we’d soon all […]

Unnecessary Night-time Nuisance: Why Wind Turbine Noise Is So Much More Annoying After Dark

Delivering a thumping, grinding, mechanical cacophony, industrial wind turbines drive neighbours nuts. But, as a recent study from Flinders University in South Australia has found, there’s a reason why wind turbine noise is so much worse after dark. The pulsing, thumping nature of wind turbine noise – which relates to blades passing the tower – […]

Subsidy Bonanza: Wind Industry Demands Even More Subsidies for Pointless Transmission Lines

Wind power will never truly compete with reliable generators, hence the endless subsidies. Now, the wind industry wants even more subsidies to pay for the transmission lines that would allow it to send its chaotic wares halfway across Australia. The claim is that another so-called ‘interconnector’ will help South Australian wind power outfits to deliver […]

How to Waste Mountains of Energy: Turn Wind & Solar Power Into Hydrogen Gas & Burn the Gas

The belief that wind and solar will soon power us is delusional, turning those intermittent sources into hydrogen gas is positively insane, on every level. Renewable energy rent seekers have seized on the concept of producing hydrogen gas using wind and solar as a way of converting useless, unpredictable and unreliable electricity into something that […]

Beyond Help: Power Rationing New Normal in Wind & Solar ‘Powered’ South Australia

South Australians know an awful lot about sweating in the dark and, thanks to their fixation on wind and solar power, its hapless proletariat will get to learn a whole lot more. Renowned by the renewable cult as Australia’s ‘wind and solar capital’, SA suffers Australia’s highest power prices and, quite naturally, Australia’s highest rate […]

It’s Ever-Reliable Coal-Fired Power That’s Powering Australia & Will Be For Years to Come

Another burst of calm weather has proved the point: anyone who believes wind power is a meaningful power source, is delusional. The wind and solar cult keep telling us that we’re a heartbeat away from an all wind and sun powered future. The same crowd also claims that coal-fired power is dead as the dodo. […]

‘Inevitable Transition’: Get Ready For the Insane Cost of Attempting to Rely on Wind & Solar

Want rocketing power prices and an unreliable supply? Then, subsidised wind and solar is just made for you. The very point of subsidies to wind and solar is to knock reliable, dispatchable generation sources, out of the game. In wind and solar obsessed South Australia, that’s already occurred, with a vengeance: it blew up its […]
