Game Over: Australia’s Energy Minister Slams Chaos Delivered by Subsidised Wind & Solar

The reason Australia’s renewable energy rent seekers are suicidal has a name: Angus Taylor. The Federal Energy Minister hates subsidised wind and solar with a passion. Taylor was elevated to the position in late July, and since then he’s been giving those involved in the greatest fraud of all time hell. Last week, Taylor appeared […]

Energy Minister Delivers Killer-Blow to Australian Industry: Mass Power Cuts Now Formal Government Policy

  An obsession with the ‘unreliables’ – wind and solar – has destroyed Australia’s once reliable and affordable power supply.

Renewables Disaster Killing Australian Industry: Big Users Forced to Shut Down In Calm & Cloudy Weather

  Australia’s enviable prosperity isn’t due to sunshine and breezes, it’s down to iron ore, coal and a bevy of other minerals including copper and uranium.

Renewables Rent-Seeker Round-Up: Time to Shame the Bad, the Worse & the Ugly
