Powering Australia: Keeping the Lights On Means Coal-Fired Power For Generations to Come

Australia is in the process of destroying what was the world’s most reliable and affordable power supply. The destruction is all down to heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Meanwhile, our major Asian trading partners, China and Japan are chewing up Australian coal and uranium as fast as we can ship it – […]

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 […]

Power Surge: Weather Dependent Wind Power Means Massive Summertime Price Hike for South Australia

  South Australia is renowned for the world’s highest power prices and mass blackouts, thanks to its risible ‘reliance’ on sunshine and breezes. In Australia’s RE capital, sunset and massive, sudden and unpredictable collapses in wind power output not only result in mass load shedding (controlled blackouts), but send spot prices for power into the […]

Victoria’s Wind & Solar Vortex: Labor Determined to Repeat South Australian Debacle with Ludicrous 50% RET

  Victoria’s unhinged Premier and deluded Energy Minister are hell-bent on replicating South Australia’s wind and solar debacle and bringing it home. By definition, ‘insanity’ is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. On that score, Daniel Andrews and Lily D’Ambrosio are in a league of their own. It’s not […]

Energy Minister – Angus Taylor: Subsidised Wind & Solar ‘Virtue Signalling with Other People’s Money’

  The world was overrun by insanely costly and chaotically intermittent wind and solar, thanks to an endless stream of other people’s money. Preaching the gospel about nature’s wonder fuels, isn’t simply about moral posturing and virtue signalling. It’s also about separating taxpayers and power consumers from their hard-earned: over the life of the Federal […]

RE Contagion: Labor Promises to Take South Australia’s Energy Debacle Nationwide with 50% RET

That adding intermittent wind and solar sends power prices into orbit is a night follows day, kind of thing. Despite some recent propaganda efforts suggesting that South Australians are currently enjoying 1970s power prices, Australia’s renewable energy capital still pays the world’s highest power prices – thanks to its ludicrous 50% Renewable Energy Target. SA’s […]

Renewable Energy Zealots Furious: Australia’s New PM Determined to Slash Wind & Solar Subsidies and Exit Paris Climate ‘Deal’

Ever rocketing power prices were what scuttled Australia’s suicidal renewable energy policies. The National Energy Guarantee was an effort to expand (exponentially) and extend (indefinitely) Australia’s already crippling Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target. A mixture of hubris and overreach by those championing the NEG – which included the ex-PM (we seem to recall his name was […]
