Old King Coal Trumps Wind & Solar: In An Energy Starved World the Black Stuff Still Rules

Wind and solar advocates keep carping that ‘coal is dead’, as if thermal power generation had gone the same way as the dodo and flared trousers. This wouldn’t be the first time an obituary has been published way too early. Mark Twain noted that reports of his death had been greatly exaggerated. So too, coal-fired […]

Why Heavily Subsidised & Utterly Unreliable Wind & Solar Will Wreck Your Economy

The wind and solar cult will never admit it, but coal-fired power is the backbone of Australia’s electricity grid. Without it, this country would descend into Stone Age chaos in next to no time. With the announcement that another reliable coal-fired power plant will be shuttered in a few years’ time, the response from our […]

Chasing Net-Zero Targets Without Nuclear Power Amounts to Assisted Economic Suicide

With no defined benefit and undisclosed costs, net-zero carbon dioxide gas emissions targets amount to an assisted economic suicide pact. Countries serious about their economic future – eg China, India, Russia, Brazil and countless others – have no interest in signing up to a scheme that will merely enrich rent-seekers and crony capitalists but guarantee […]

Utterly Useless: Wind & Solar Costly, Pointless & Can’t Reduce CO2 Emissions

No country has ever powered itself entirely with wind and solar; no country ever will. The idea we’ll all be powered exclusively by wind and solar is pure fantasy and talk about giant batteries soon making that pipe dream possible is just as unhinged. The occasional claim that wind and solar satisfied 100% of power […]

Follow the Money: Politicians Plugging Wind & Solar Pocketing Untold $Millions

Crony capitalism is the new ‘Green’: every politician plugging wind and solar will eventually be caught pocketing cash for his time and trouble. Sure, there’s an ostensible sense of virtue when an MP propounds renewables as a solution to all the world’s perceived ills. But it doesn’t take much digging to work out precisely why […]

Subsidised Suicide: How Wind & Solar Carpetbaggers Trashed Australia’s Energy Grid

With abundant supplies of coal, gas and uranium Australia ought to be renowned as an energy superpower. It isn’t. In less than 20 years it deliberately destroyed the most reliable and affordable power generation and delivery system, on earth. It started with subsidies; massive subsidies to wind and solar – both domestic and large-scale – […]

Emergency Response: Wind & Solar Debacle Forces Government to Build Gas-Fired Power Plants

Australia’s self-inflicted renewable energy calamity was as perfectly predictable, as it was perfectly avoidable. The cancer started in wind and solar obsessed South Australia; renowned for Australia’s highest retail power prices and its most unreliable power delivery. But the disease soon spread, which is not surprising given that it all started with the Federal government’s […]

Wanna Wreck Your Economy? Just Add Unreliable Subsidised Wind & Solar

  Australia’s energy system is a diabolical mess, largely thanks to the Federal Government’s Renewable Energy Target. But the Feds can’t take all the blame, in all instances. A number of States – usually headed by Trotskyites, like Chairman Dan Andrews – are determined to destroy the last vestiges of their economies. What the Fed’s […]

Suicide Pact: Subsidised Wind & Solar Designed to Wreck First World Economies

One of China’s principal strengths is its ability to harness cheap and reliable nuclear and coal-fired power. Contrast that with Australia’s energy policies deliberately hostile to coal and nuclear power, and it’s hard not to conclude that our political betters are in cahoots with the CCP. The Roman Empire didn’t collapse because the barbarians to […]
