Hidden Cost of Solar: Sunset Delivers Power Price Surge As Governments Dictate Household Power Use

Hereafter, the lights will go on during the day and off after sunset. In the ‘even the Soviets couldn’t have dreamt this up’ category sits a plan to force households to use power when they simply do not need it. Backed by the Federal government’s Small Scale Renewable Energy Scheme – which delivers taxpayer funded […]

Burning Yen: Japanese Government Scraps Last Wind Turbines in Failed $580 Million Offshore Project

Apart from literally burning cash, there is no faster way to squander money than by piling it into an offshore wind power project. It’s hardly news that the true cost of generating electricity using wind power is staggering; the cost of doing so offshore is astronomical. But don’t take our word for it, the Japanese […]

Biden’s Bonanza: Poor Will Suffer Most From Democrats Wind & Solar Obsession

Joe Biden’s plan to carpet America wall-to-wall with 60,000 wind turbines and millions of solar panels comes with a staggering cost, and it’s America’s poor that will pay the heaviest price for the Democrat’s delusional energy policy. The only thing guaranteed about subsidising wind and solar is rocketing power prices and unreliable electricity. Ask a […]

No Contest: Never Reliable Wind & Solar Can’t Compete with Ever Reliable Coal-Fired Power

  Renewables acolytes have been massaging the numbers for years, in an attempt to show that wind and solar power are the cheapest of all. The standard bag of tricks includes ignoring the capital cost of having every single (unreliable) megawatt of wind or solar constantly backed up by another (reliable) megawatt of coal, gas, […]

China Crisis: Beijing’s Ban On Australian Coal Leaves Millions Freezing In The Dark

Millions of Chinese are learning just how important coal-fired power is to their health, safety and comfort, thanks to Beijing’s ban on Australian coal imports. High-quality Australian coal has helped fuel China’s miraculous industrial growth over the last generation. But the escalation of a trade spat between the PRC and the Morrison led Federal Government […]

Australia’s Subsidised Wind & Solar Rush Threatens Total Power Grid Collapse

Australia’s self-inflicted renewable energy calamity was as perfectly predictable as it was perfectly avoidable. Now, amongst the myriad of energy commissars and boffins, it’s a case of avoiding responsibility for the disaster that everybody (save them) saw coming. For years the likes of Kerry Schott – head of the inaptly named Energy Security Board – […]

Power Policy Hijacked: Renewable Energy Rent Seekers Holding Power Consumers Hostage

  A slavish obsession with intermittent wind and solar has reliably delivered unreliable power and rocketing power prices. The politics of power has been taken out of the hands of voters and is now firmly in the grasp of cashed-up rent seekers – hell-bent on parachuting their own pet candidates into green-tinged seats, across the […]

Peanuts to Pay For Total Chaos: Wind Power Outfit Fined $1 Million For Causing Statewide Blackout

On 28 September 2016, the automatic shutdown of wind turbines in South Australia during a spring storm delivered a statewide ‘system black’. South Australia’s hapless Premier, Jay Weatherill led the wind industry’s propaganda charge, pointing the finger at the collapse of a couple of power pylons in the state’s mid-North as the cause of a […]

Wind Industry’s New Wave of ‘Green’ Destruction: German Forests Face Wholesale Wipe-Out

The wanton destruction of Germany’s ancient forests has brought its faux Greens head to head with those who actually care about the environment. The once pleasant green vistas that defined Germany’s landscape have made way for more than 30,000 of these things. And to do so, the German wind industry has been carving up wood […]
