Frydenberg Fiddles as Renewables Disaster Hits Businesses with 30% Annual Power Price Hike

  Flummoxed renewable energy zealots can’t escape the obvious connection between heavily subsidised and utterly unreliable renewables and rocketing power prices. As Malcolm Turnbull and Josh Frydenberg close ranks to protect renewables rent seekers (including the PM’s son, Alex), the casualties keep mounting.

Dog-Ate-My-Homework ‘Defence’: Wind Industry Blames Poor ‘Performance’ on the Weather

As Australia’s Energy Minister’s gathered for a panicked attempt to keep the subsidised renewable energy scam rolling for just that bit longer, the Wind Gods conspired to deflate their pumped-up rhetoric about Australia’s ‘inevitable transition’ to nature’s wonder fuels: sunshine and breezes.

Wind Power Collapses Send Power Prices Into Orbit in Wind ‘Powered’ South Australia

Wind power outfits often claim that their particular operation ‘powers’ 30,000 homes; RE zealots even claim that South Australians get 50% of their power from the sun and wind. Whacked with the obvious retort of ‘when?’, the wind cultist changes tack and starts mumbling about mega-batteries (non-existent and insanely costly), pumped hydro (non-existent and costly) […]

Ticket to Oblivion: Australia’s $60bn Wind & Solar Subsidy Gravy Train Rolls Until 2031

A Country carpeted with wind turbines with its rooftops glistening with solar panels is the product of one thing: endless and massive subsidies. Cut the subsidies, and the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time, would resolve itself in a heartbeat. One myth that pervades political discourse in this Country at the moment, is […]

Postcards from The Edge: The Naked Insanity of Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle

  Australia’s self-inflicted energy crisis is an IQ test for anyone game to take the challenge. Published every day, the results provide a permanent record for future generations, enabling them to praise the scholars and punish the dunces.
