Clown Factor: Trying to Explain Our Idiotic and Self-Destructive Wind & Solar Obsession

Remember the class clown? The idiot who couldn’t help himself, always in trouble and too witless to know why. Well, he’s now firmly in charge of energy policy, which in its design and implementation resembles the chaos of a mismanaged three-ringed circus. As the adage goes, don’t put down to conspiracy what can be chalked […]

Real Nowhere Plan: Grand Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Already Doomed to Total Failure

Sound engineering, not ideology sits at the heart of our reliable and affordable power supplies. However, in the veritable blink of an eye, engineers have been given the flick, so too, our good friends logic and reason. Australia might register as geographically significant and claims to be a world player, but still retains the mentality […]

Wind & Solar Wipeout: Reliable & Affordable Power Now Part of Ancient History

Pretty soon, the notion of having affordable power available on demand will be ancient history. Never before in the course of human existence have so few done so much damage to so many. Electricity prices are spiralling out of control in any place attempting to run on sunshine and breezes, power rationing (aka ‘demand management’) […]

Reality Collision Course: World Accelerates Towards Subsidised Wind & Solar Trainwreck

Before the wind and sun cult took charge, the power grid was designed and run by engineers – using coal, a little gas, hydro and nuclear (everywhere else in the world except Australia, that is). It ran like clockwork; power was cheap as chips and delivered on demand. Electrical storms were the only thing that […]

No Respite: Wind & Solar Driven Power & Pricing Calamity Can Only Get Worse

With the debacle playing out in Europe and the UK, it takes a special brand of delusion the claim that increasing reliance on wind and solar will inevitably result in falling power prices. And delusion, in that respect, is very much the order of the day amongst Australia’s Green/Labor Alliance. When it comes to anything […]

No Defence: Chaotic Wind & Solar Prime Culprits For Massive Retail Power Price Hikes

The insane cost of the wind and solar ‘transition’ is starting to bite; the wind and sun cult are struggling to shift the blame. While Vlad Putin may be a seriously thuggish dictator, he can’t seriously be held responsible for rocketing power prices in the UK, Europe and Australia, where power prices have been surging […]

Destination Destruction: Deluded Virtue Signallers Destroying Reliable & Affordable Power Supplies

Every country chasing the wind and solar ‘transition’ is suffering from a mix of power rationing and rocketing prices. There is no exception. Which brings us to our sunny land, Australia. Blessed with abundant reserves of coal, gas and uranium, it ought to enjoy the world’s cheapest power prices (20 years ago, it did). Now, […]

Time to Grow Up: Australia’s Idiotic Ban On Nuclear Power Has to Go Right Now

In power-starved Europe, nuclear is back in vogue, principally because it’s cheap and reliable and doesn’t depend on the weather or Russian dictators who supply the gas to fill the gaps when the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. There’s a reason that the French enjoy power prices half that suffered by their German […]

Power Consumers Become Victims of Suicidal Subsidised Wind & Solar Push

No country that ‘invested’ in wind and solar has ever seen their retail power prices fall. In Europe, wind and solar ‘powered’ Germans and Danes are punished by Europe’s highest power prices – around double that paid by the nuclear-powered French. Australia’s wind and solar capital, South Australia set the benchmark down under for crippling power […]

Transition to Poverty: Britain Being Crushed By Staggering Cost of Wind & Solar Obsession

What does the ‘inevitable’ wind and solar transition look like? Try power-starved Britain, where power prices are out of control, with much, much worse to come. Last October, the average annual energy bill was £1,400 ($2,400). Energy industry analyst Cornwall Insight forecasts that the British price cap will skyrocket and the average annual bill will […]
