Subsidy Bonanza: Wind Industry Demands Even More Subsidies for Pointless Transmission Lines

Wind power will never truly compete with reliable generators, hence the endless subsidies. Now, the wind industry wants even more subsidies to pay for the transmission lines that would allow it to send its chaotic wares halfway across Australia. The claim is that another so-called ‘interconnector’ will help South Australian wind power outfits to deliver […]

Avoidable Self Harm: Dogged Reliance On Intermittent Wind & Solar Guarantees Power Supply Chaos

Sign up for wind and solar and receive power supply chaos as just one of the added extras, along with rocketing power prices and a wave of social and environmental havoc. Australia has been on the path since 2001 when Federal Liberal PM, John Howard introduced his Renewable Energy Target. The Target was greatly expanded […]

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 […]

Total Joke: Australian Wind Farms Regularly Deliver Tiny Fraction of Their Total Capacity

If Australia’s wind turbine fleet hadn’t cost power consumers $20 billion to build, the joke would almost be funny. Spread from Far North Queensland to the West Coast of South Australia, on the Eastern Grid, Australia’s wind farms are located in 5 States: Tasmania, South Australia, Victoria, NSW and Queensland (see below). In SA they’re […]

No-Brainer: Nuclear Power Only Solution For Those Fretting About Carbon Dioxide Gas

Nuclear power is the only stand-alone power generation source that does not generate carbon dioxide gas in the process. So why is it that those fretting about human-generated carbon dioxide gas aren’t screaming its merits from the rooftops? There are plenty among them who fit the category of ‘human hater’ – the kind who see […]

Government’s Grid Fix: Power Consumers Forced to Pay Coal-Fired Plants to Remain Online

  Having gouged $billions from power consumers and taxpayers to subsidise hopelessly unreliable wind and solar, the Federal government wants us to pay $millions more to undo the damage done to our once reliable power supply by its Renewable Energy Target. The point and purpose of subsidies and mandated targets favouring wind and solar was […]

Last Man Standing: China Defies Biden’s Climate Crusade Against Coal-Fired Power

The CCP won’t let America’s climate industrial complex interfere with its economic ambitions, key to which is its burgeoning supply of reliable and affordable coal-fired power. Whereas Australia’s suicidal renewable energy obsession has destroyed this country’s competitive advantage, the only interest China has in wind turbines and solar panels is making them and flogging them […]

Punishing Price of ‘Virtue’ Signalling: Canberra Power Price Surge Follows 100% RE Push

  When George Orwell described ‘doublethink’ and ‘doublespeak’ he surely had the renewable energy zealot in mind. In the Nation’s capital, Canberra the swamp is lined with renewable energy rent seekers – always on the prowl for more and more extensive subsidies, soft loans and favourable treatment from the Federal government – and populated by […]

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 […]

Climate Warriors Furious Over India & China’s Insatiable Thirst for Coal-Fired Power

For years now, we’ve been told that “coal is dead” and that India and China will plump for wind and solar, instead of coal-fired power. Well, that’s the line being run by renewable energy rent seekers and wind and solar zealots around the globe. It is, of course, complete bunkum. With hundreds of millions still […]
