Power Brawl: Labor Backbenchers Revolt Over Ludicrous Wind & Solar Energy Targets

Having lost the un-loseable election in May last year, an angry rump of Labor backbenchers is keen to ditch the party’s suicidal renewable energy policies, with a view to recovering the ground they lost trying to win the sandalista vote in the inner city goat’s cheese circle. Australia’s economic future depends, in no small part, […]

‘Green’ Delusions: Why Wind & Solar Can Never Replace Coal, Gas & Nuclear Power

It takes a special brand of delusion to still believe that chaotically intermittent wind and solar can replace conventional generators, such as coal, gas and nuclear plants. But they’re still out there. Indeed, some of them hold high, elected office. Or once did. Maths, physics, economics and meteorology are not difficult disciplines. But mastery thereof […]

Life Support: Government’s Obsession With Subsidised Wind & Solar Destroyed South Australia’s Economy

South Australia has more wind and solar capacity per capita than any other place on the planet. It also suffers the world’s highest retail power prices and has been the butt of international jokes thanks to a run of mass blackouts, including one that plunged parts of the state into Stone Age darkness for more […]

Fake News: Tasmania’s 200% Renewable Energy Vanity Project, 100% Dependent on Coal-Fired Power from Victoria

  The renewable energy zealot is all care and no responsibility. Claims that the world can run on sunshine and breezes and become “100% renewable” have been outdone by Tasmania with its claim that it will soon be 200% renewable. But, dig a little deeper, and the 200% claim is just as hollow as the […]

The Great Wind Delusion: Why Wind Power Is Worse Than Useless

The notion that a nation can run on sunshine and breezes is worse than delusional, it’s flat out dangerous. Once resilient and reliable electricity generation and delivery systems designed around the certitude of coal, gas and hydro have been replaced by pure and utter, weather driven chaos. Rapid and reactionary load shedding (“demand management”) and […]

Money For Jam: Intermittent & Unreliable Wind & Solar The Greatest Subsidy Scam In History

The so-called wind and solar ‘industries’ were built on lies, myths and propaganda and run on subsidies. As wind power ‘investor’ Warren Buffett put it: “We get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That’s the only reason to build them. They don’t make sense without the tax credit.” Buffett might […]

Renewable Wreckage: Texas Town’s Push for 100% Wind & Solar Sends Prices Into Orbit

The wind may be free and the sun, when it’s shining, doesn’t cost a penny. But wind and solar literally cost the earth. Put aside the wholesale slaughter of birds, bugs and bats; the destruction of idyllic landscapes and once bustling communities, with residents driven out of their homes by incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise […]

Blackout Nation: Wind Power Output Collapse Leaves Millions of Brits Totally Powerless

Proving pride comes before a fall, UK’s wind industry was crowing about delivering 47% Britain’s power one-minute and ducking for cover the next, after the collapse of output at an offshore wind farm delivered 100% chaos for businesses, households, hospital patients and commuters. With its obsession for chaotic wind power running unabated, Brits can expect […]

Red Faces: Mainstream Journos Quietly Drop Support For Intermittent Wind & Solar

Often wrong, never in doubt, the mainstream press is responsible for the idea that we’re well on our way to an all wind and sun powered future. The need for massive and endless subsidies is ignored; and the chaotic intermittency of wind and solar, brushed aside with waffle about mega-batteries saving the day. The mainstream […]

Regressive Renewables: Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar Deliberately Designed to Destroy Wealth & Prosperity

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target reads like a National suicide note, but the land of Oz is no orphan in that regard. If the enemies of state were looking for insidious, all-pervasive policy perfectly designed to wreck an economy from within (while barely raising a murmur amongst the proles), they need look no further than ratcheting […]
