Suicide Road: Australia’s Renewable Energy Crisis Threatens Thousands of Well-Paid Jobs

  An obsession with renewables sent power prices into orbit, destroying thousands of manufacturing jobs. Farmers irrigating crops and vines and milking cows, aquaculture outfits rearing abalone and finfish, mineral processors and miners are next. The relationship between having reliable and affordable electricity and sustaining profitable enterprise is entirely lost on Labor and the Greens. […]

Power Play: Call for Reliable & Affordable Electricity Means Investing in New Coal-Fired Plant

Australia’s self-inflicted renewable energy calamity sent power prices through the roof, leaving hundreds of thousands unable to afford power. In this country blessed with abundant reserves of coal, gas and uranium. It’s Australia’s Great Shame. The causes are all political; driven by the delusional hard-green-left that people the Greens and that now dominates the Labor […]

Reliable Power Rewind: Australia Rebuilds Baseload With New High Efficiency Low Emission Coal Plants

Like pushing on string, adding wind and solar adds nothing to reliable power generation capacity: never there when you need it, and often there when you don’t, wind and solar are just a perpetual irritant to grid managers – the people attempting to keep the lights on and air conditioners humming this summer.

Labor Lunacy: Industry Wipeout Looms as Bill Shorten Doubles-down on Wind & Solar Insanity

Fossil Fuelled-Fury: Record Demand for Australian Coal Drives ‘Greens’ Totally Insane

  If you’re reading this post in Australia, you’re doing so thanks to coal. So, deal with it. Notwithstanding that their very lives depend upon it, the very mention of that Carboniferous mineral gives the climate cult foaming-at-the-mouth conniptions. This is a cohort who believe that humans are little more than cockroaches determined to devour […]

Dark Ages Deliverance: Australia’s Energy Minister Contracts Coal-Fired Power to Avoid More Mass Blackouts

Intermittent wind and solar guarantee power supply chaos and are a recipe for mass load shedding and blackouts: ask South Australians. While the Federal Energy Minister, Angus Taylor’s public focus has been on reducing power prices, in reality his ‘mission-critical’ is ensuring that there is enough reliable electricity generating capacity in the system to prevent […]

Renewables Rejected: 80% of Australian Households Want Reliable & Affordable Power

For Australian households and businesses being crushed by out-of-control power prices the Paris Climate Agreement is a maniac’s suicide note. With nothing else to justify the $60 billion being thrown in subsidies at chaotically intermittent wind and solar, renewable energy rent seekers are clinging to the notion that the deal done in the City of Light will […]
