Renewable Energy ‘Transition’: More Wind Power, Higher Prices, More Blackouts

The chaos that comes with intermittent wind and solar get serious in summer, when demand surges, the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. This summer, the barbecue stopper will literally be another round of what’s euphemistically called “demand management”: Soviet era power rationing, an integral part of Australia’s ludicrous attempt to run on sunshine […]

Summer Holiday-Hell: Power Consumers Face Staggering Bill Whenever Wind Power Goes AWOL

When RE zealots talk about the ‘transition’ to wind and solar, they never specify when. They say it’s ‘inevitable’, but always kick the can down the road when pressed about precisely when we’ll all be powered by nothing but sunshine and breezes. Perhaps it’s got something to do with sunset? Or maybe even the weather? […]

French Kiss of Death: Paris Obsession Driving Australian Power Prices Through the Roof

For Australian households and businesses being crushed by out-of-control power prices the Paris Climate Agreement is a maniac’s suicide note. With nothing else to justify the $60 billion being thrown in subsidies at chaotically intermittent wind and solar, renewable energy rent seekers are clinging to the notion that the deal done in the City of […]

Wind & Solar Rewind: Victorian Labor Promises to Repeat South Australia’s Renewable Energy Disaster

Ignoring neighbouring South Australia’s wind & solar debacle, Victoria’s delusional Labor Premier Daniel Andrews is determined to repeat it. Despite some recent propaganda efforts suggesting that South Australians are currently enjoying 1970s power prices, Australia’s renewable energy capital still pays the world’s highest power prices – thanks to its ludicrous 50% Renewable Energy Target. SA’s 50% RET […]

Wind Power Collapses Send Power Prices Into Orbit in Wind ‘Powered’ South Australia

Wind power outfits often claim that their particular operation ‘powers’ 30,000 homes; RE zealots even claim that South Australians get 50% of their power from the sun and wind. Whacked with the obvious retort of ‘when?’, the wind cultist changes tack and starts mumbling about mega-batteries (non-existent and insanely costly), pumped hydro (non-existent and costly) […]

Battlelines Drawn: Monash Forum Pushes for Reliable & Affordable Coal-Fired Future

  A mere trickle of opposition to subsidised wind and solar power has just turned into a flood of biblical proportions. A group of National and Liberal MPs have declared war on renewable subsidies. Calling in aid the legacy of Australia’s greatest Soldier, Sir John Monash, the Monash Forum has gathered 30 Federal MPs to […]

Monash Forum’s Renewables Revolt: Australian MPs Demand End to Subsidised Wind & Solar

Common sense rarely needs an advocate. But when the subject is Australian energy policy, common sense left the building years ago. Now, it’s returned with a vengeance: 30 Nationals and Liberal MPs have formed the Monash Forum, to demand an end to the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time: massively subsidised, utterly unreliable […]
