Time to ‘Trump’ Paris Climate Deal: Suicidal Energy Policy Based on Hysterical IPCC Report

One of Donald Trump’s first moves as President was to cut the US loose from the suicidal Paris Climate agreement. With cheap energy and an America first approach to economic policy, the USA is attracting international investment in the same way young Royals attract paparazzi. The US economy is booming: the Australian dollar is copping […]

Marriage Meltdown: How A Love Affair With Intermittent Wind & Solar Ended In Tears

Australia’s grab bag of renewable energy policies are like a marriage made in hell. Destroying its once reliable grid and sending power prices through the roof, Federal and State Renewable Energy Targets are designed to destroy conventional generators. And, so far, they’ve done an admirable job. Australia now faces a summer of widespread blackouts and […]

New PM’s Top Priority: Morrison Must Slash Subsidies to Intermittent Wind & Solar, Right Now

  New PM, Scott Morrison must slash subsidies to renewables now to tame the 40 rebel MPs who crushed wind and solar obsessed Malcolm Turnbull.

Adding Intermittent Wind & Solar Guarantees Spiralling Power Prices: Just Ask South Australians

Australia’s Energy Minister, Josh Frydenberg reckons adding more wind and solar will cut power prices, like South Australia never happened.

Bureaucrats Backtrack: ‘Transition’ to Wind & Solar Now Deemed Impossible Before 2040

Suddenly, came the realisation that subsidised wind and solar will never replace Australia’s coal-fired power plants. The idea that they ever could was, of course, a perfect nonsense. Talk about being ‘technology agnostic’, ‘inevitable transitions’ and wind and solar actually ‘competing’ with coal, gas and hydro, say more about the protagonist’s state of mental health, […]

Reliable Power Play: Monash Forum Australia’s Last Best Hope for Sensible Energy Policy

  Australia’s mainstream media occupy a fact and consequence free zone, where the sun always shines and the wind always blows. How else can their cult-like veneration of wind and solar power be explained? With a growing group of National and Liberal MPs joining the Monash Forum, and dictating the terms about Australia’s energy future, […]

System Reboot Required: Undoing Australia’s Self-Inflicted Renewable Energy Disaster

  For some strange reason, wind ‘powered’ Victoria and South Australia suffer wholesale prices around double what’s paid in coal-fired Queensland and NSW? Could it be that massively subsidised, intermittent and unreliable wind power has wrecked power markets in Daniel Andrew’s Victoria and Jay Weatherill’s SA? The graphic above appeared in The Australian, a few […]
