Perpetually Pathetic Pair: Wind & Solar Require Subsidies From Now Until Kingdom Come

Wind and solar don’t compete with coal and gas; they never have, they never will. Here’s the real news: sunset is a thing; calm weather is a thing. These are not planetary or meteorological oddities. Babble about Australia being well on its way to an ‘orderly transition’ to an all renewables powered future is a little like St […]

Time to ‘Trump’ Paris Climate Deal: Suicidal Energy Policy Based on Hysterical IPCC Report

One of Donald Trump’s first moves as President was to cut the US loose from the suicidal Paris Climate agreement. With cheap energy and an America first approach to economic policy, the USA is attracting international investment in the same way young Royals attract paparazzi. The US economy is booming: the Australian dollar is copping […]

Enemy Within: Virtue Signalling Renewable Energy Zealots Determined to Destroy Australia’s Economic Prosperity

  Wind and solar is a purely political phenomenon: they have nothing to do with economics, instead, they’re all about virtue signalling. In the absence of massive and endless subsidies, this wouldn’t even be a topic. The idea that an economy can run on sunshine and breezes is, of course, patent nonsense. Debacles like South […]

Renewables Rejected: More Countries Get Serious About Serious Power Generation

Countries serious about their economic prosperity are getting serious about serious power generation. Ontario, China and Japan have slashed subsidies and mandated targets for wind and solar; between them China and Japan are building hundreds of high-efficiency, low emissions coal-fired plant at home and even more across South-East Asia. Germany’s transition to an all wind […]

French Kiss of Death: Paris Obsession Driving Australian Power Prices Through the Roof

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 […]

Cheap Reliable Energy Sets the USA Apart: Gas, Coal & Nuclear Sideline Subsidised Wind & Solar

America truly is exceptional: while plenty of Western democracies are still piling into subsidised wind and solar, the USA is getting out. Prior to the election of Donald J Trump, the US was on an economy wrecking trajectory, set by renewable energy rent seekers and the eco-zealots that champion their cause: numerous American states, not […]

Subsidised Wind & Solar Driving Australian Power Prices Through the Roof

Power prices matter: and they matter most to society’s poorest and most vulnerable. In less than a dozen years, Australia went from enjoying the cheapest power in the world, to suffering the world’s most expensive. In the last three years power prices have risen at double-digit rates: 20 to 24% last year and 13 to […]
