Atomic RE-Action: Wind & Solar’s Proven Unreliability Makes Nuclear Obvious Choice For Clean Energy Future

  Chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar are central to Australia’s self-inflicted power pricing and supply calamity. But, as the adage has it, out of every crisis comes an opportunity. And for uranium rich Australia that opportunity is nuclear power. Whacked with a legislative ban over 20 years ago, nuclear power has been […]

Residents Revolt: South Australia’s Wind Farm Planning Rules ‘Rotten to the Core’

  Like Germany, rural South Australia was quickly carpeted with a multitude of these things; like Germany its long-suffering rural residents have had enough noise torment to last a lifetime. In SA (as elsewhere) the so-called ‘noise guidelines’ and planning ‘rules’ were rigged in favour of the wind industry, from the get go. And to […]

Australia’s Energy Crisis: Subsidised Wind & Solar Obsession Sending Power Prices Into Orbit

Add heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid and rocketing prices are guaranteed. The Danes know it, the Germans know it and South Australians became the butt of international jokes, because of it. The relationship couldn’t be clearer: see above the pertinent little graphic from Dr Michael Crawford, which says it […]

Summer Blackouts Beckon: Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle Won’t Be Fixed with Batteries

Almost as soon as Joe Public worked out that wind and solar can never work, RE rent seekers started babbling about giant batteries saving the day. STT will keep smashing the line about giant batteries overcoming the chaotic delivery of wind and solar, while RE zealots keep pushing it. The pitch from RE zealots is […]

Power Politics: Wind & Solar Obsession Renders Australia’s Labor Party Unelectable

  Bill Shorten took his Labor party to the Federal election in May with a belief that voters uniformly shared his love of rocketing power prices and blackouts. Promising a Nationwide 50% Renewable Energy Target and a massive tax on carbon dioxide gas emissions, Shorten & Co were gobsmacked when the electorate rejected their vision […]

Battle for Barossa Won: Keyneton Locals Kill-Off Monster Wind Farm & Save Premier Wine Growing District

There’s nothing like winning and there’s nothing like winning against the subsidy-soaked wind industry. Across the globe, thousands of communities are united in their opposition to the threat of giant industrial wind turbines being speared into their backyards. The backlash against the wind industry in German rural communities has brought construction of new wind farms […]

Worse Than Useless: Chaotically Intermittent Wind Power Never There When It’s Needed Most

Subsidies aside, wind power has no natural commercial value simply because it cannot be delivered as and when power consumers need it. And the mythical notion of storing electricity at grid-scale doesn’t alter that equation, it simply makes wind power even more ridiculously expensive, than it already is. With wind and solar obsessed South Australia […]
