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 […]

Time to Ditch Meaningless Medieval Wind Power & Embrace Modern Nuclear Power

Wind power was abandoned centuries ago, for pretty obvious reasons, known to kite flyers and sailors, since the beginning of time. Sure, in medieval times, when there was no alternative, harnessing nature’s energy make sense. But not now. It was coal that dragged Europe out of the Dark Ages, by providing around-the-clock power, not windmills. […]

Nuclear Power: Perfect Cure For Wind & Solar Driven Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s power market is in a diabolical mess: massive subsidies to intermittent wind and solar have undermined reliable and affordable power supplies, sending Germany and Denmark’s power prices through the roof (see above). Since Vladimir Putin’s adventure in Ukraine, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per kWh. […]

‘Green’ Energy Suicide: Australia’s Anti-Nuclear Power Stance Beggars Belief

Australia’s politics is bereft of leadership and there’s no better example thereof than the failure to advance nuclear power in this country. Notwithstanding the unfolding power pricing and supply calamity – driven by chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar – its new Labor Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, more Elmer Fudd than Bob Hawke, […]

Panic Stations: Daily Wind & Solar Shortfalls Threaten Australia’s Entire Electricity Grid

Subsidised and intermittent wind and solar infiltrate and destroy power grids like an aggressive cancer. But, unlike cancer, the cause of Australia’s power pricing and supply debacle is precisely known, and was as perfectly predictable, as it was perfectly avoidable. The massive subsidies to wind and solar were deliberately designed to knock reliable and affordable […]

No Brainer: Any Serious World Power Is Absolutely Serious About Nuclear Power

China and Russia are serious world powers, which is why they are absolutely serious about nuclear power. No country ever deprived itself of reliable and affordable energy and went on to become a world player. Which is why the CCP and Vlad Putin can’t believe their luck with hitherto Western powers doing just that. True […]
