No Contest: Coal-Fired Power Outright Winner In Reliable & Affordable Energy Wars

China, India and Indonesia are building hundreds of coal-fired power plants because they deliver electricity all day, every day at prices that everyone can afford. The reason for backing coal-fired power is that simple. And yet thanks to a mixture of mercenary self-interest on the part of renewable energy rent seekers and the wilful ignorance […]

Power Cuts & Rocketing Prices All Part of Australia’s Wonderful Wind & Solar ‘Transition’

Australians are getting a bitter taste of their ‘inevitable’ renewable energy transition: power rationing and rocketing power prices. What’s depicted above is the weather-dependent power generation chaos at the heart of Australia’s renewable energy-driven power pricing and supply calamity. The dismal data – courtesy of Aneroid Energy – is the output delivered by Australian wind […]

Prices Double: Obsession With Subsidised Wind & Solar Causes Runaway Power Prices

Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity is the product of policies deliberately designed to wreck reliable and affordable power supplies. Massive and seemingly endless subsidies to chaotically intermittent wind and solar have done what they were designed to do: drive the owners of reliable coal-fired power generators to the wall, by allowing wind and solar […]

Renewable Energy Targets: Unaffordable & Unreliable Power Threatens Every Mineral Processing Job

The apparent object of renewable energy targets is to make power so expensive and unreliable that eventually no one will bother to use it. At least that’s what occurred in Australia, thanks to its Federal government’s Renewable Energy Target, which will redirect more than $60 billion to chaotically intermittent wind and solar over the life […]

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 […]

It’s Subsidised Wind & Solar or Meaningful Well-Paid Jobs: But You Can’t Have Both

Australian power prices went through the roof as a result of its obsession with chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar (see above). The relationship is so stark, why even a blind man, open to reality, will readily see it.  However, no amount of evidence appears to register with those who pretend to govern […]
