Wrecking Ball: Australia’s Fixation With Subsidised Renewables Guarantees Economic Disaster

If the object was wrecking every last manufacturing, mineral processing and mining job, then Australia’s renewable energy policy has delivered on time and under budget. Starting in 2001 with John Howard’s Renewable Energy Target (massively expanded by Kevin Rudd in 2009), the subsidies being squandered on intermittent wind and solar are now in the order […]

Technology Tease: On The Cruel Promise of a Renewables/Hydrogen Fuelled Future

  The wind and solar industries were built on lies, run on myth and are fuelled by subsidies, so the only way forward is more of the very same. It took politicians and punters around a decade to cotton on to the hopeless unreliability and chaotic intermittency of solar and wind power.  Which required an […]

Labor’s Power Brawl: ALP’s Hard-Green Left Destroying Workers’ Party With Wind & Solar Obsession

  Australia’s Labor Party was started in 1891 by QLD sheepshearers on strike, fighting for better wages and conditions; over a Century it became the party of ideas. Nowadays, it is unrecognizable, on either score. A hard-green left intelligentsia hijacked the party, long ago; pushing nonsensical CO2 emissions and renewable energy targets, and an anti-mining […]

Gassed Up: All-In Policy Brawl Over Renewables Driven Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

  The adage that success has a thousand fathers, whereas failure’s an orphan applies to Australia’s self-inflicted renewable energy disaster, one that no one wants to own. The Federal Coalition’s ‘plan’ to power Australia with gas-fired power plants it has yet to build, with gas supplies it does not have, sounds more like the ‘last […]

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, […]

Australia’s Completely Nuts: World’s Third Biggest Uranium Exporter Maintains Ban On Nuclear Power Generation

Australians fed up with crushing power bills are talking about a nuclear powered future, like there’s no tomorrow. Having recognised that climate alarmists will never relent in their crusade against carbon dioxide gas – being a proxy for eradicating cheap, reliable and affordable coal-fired power – anyone interested in a future where hot showers and […]

Mission Possible: Building New Coal-Fired Power Plants Only Hope for Industry & Decent Jobs

  Power prices have rocketed and businesses and whole industries are under threat, thanks to a political obsession with intermittent wind and solar. And their unreliable and chaotic delivery also threatens to destroy the power grid that connects Australia’s Eastern States. If Australia was looking to de-industrialise, then squandering $60,000,000,000 in subsidies to wind and […]

Lost In Space: ‘Transition’ To Wind & Solar Powered Future Is Pure Science Fiction

Whether it’s 50% or 100% as the wind and solar target, the reality strikes after sunset on a breathless evening, when neither are contributing anything at all. As NSW One Nation Leader Mark Latham puts it, the concept of an inevitable transition from coal to sunshine and breezes – being peddled by Labor as rock […]
