‘Green’ Premiers Red-Faced: Wind Power Fiasco Ends in Dirty Diesel Debacle

  Australia’s ludicrous attempt to run on sunshine and breezes sometimes reads like the farcical plot of an episode of Blackadder or Fawlty Towers. In a ‘you couldn’t make this up if you tried’ moment, Australia’s ‘greenest’ States, Victoria and South Australia (which has been forced to wear its mantle as ‘Australia’s wind power capital’, […]

Armageddon Beckons: National Energy Guarantee Crushes Australia’s Wind Industry

Renewables rent-seekers are nothing if not sore losers. A heartbeat ago it seemed as if the subsidies for renewables would last until kingdom come, and wind and solar power outfits could get away with the completely unpredictable and haphazardly occasional ‘delivery’ of power at ridiculous prices. Now, PM, Malcolm Turnbull’s National Energy Guarantee has turned […]

Determined to Destroy Cheap Power Supplies – Renewables Zealots Out to Kill the Poor

Those smug know-it-alls that champion wind and solar power persistently claim the high moral ground, but religiously ignore the inevitable victims of their faux eco-zealotry: the poorest and most vulnerable in society, for whom paying for power has become an existential battle. To the billions in the Third World, where electricity has for too long […]

Politics of Power: ‘Green’ Energy May Be ‘Wonderful’ – But Nobody Wants to Pay for Being ‘Green’ or Feeling ‘Wonderful’

  As that great frog-philosopher, Kermit reckoned, it isn’t easy being ‘green’. It is even harder when the cost of attempting to do so is, quite literally, crippling. Back in July, a family-owned specialist plastics recycling company in South Australia was forced to close its doors for good, with the loss of 35 jobs, after […]

Wrong Bet: Unreliable, Intermittent, Subsidised Wind & Solar Odds-on Losers

It’s said that you can’t keep a good man down and, in that respect, Ian Plimer is simply irrepressible. His latest book, The Climate Delusion and The Great Electricity Rip-off is jumping off the shelves. A précis (and where to purchase it) appears in our post here: Ian Plimer: The Climate Change Delusion and The […]

Subsidised Wind & Solar: Guaranteed Path to Rocketing Prices & Blackouts

Australia’s diabolically destructive renewable energy policies have led to rocketing power prices and a grid on the brink of collapse. Australian power consumers currently connected to the Eastern Grid (that connects Queensland, New South Wales, ACT, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania) have no idea just how close they are to watching their first total ‘system […]

Renewable Chaos Shock Treatment: Australia’s Politicians Panic at Threat of Looming Blackouts

Australia’s self-inflicted energy ‘crisis’ is the consequence of considered and deliberate action that promoted weather dependent wind power and time-dependent solar power at the expense of the secure, reliable and affordable stuff. As the political panic spreads, it’s quite apparent, that those who created the disaster have almost no idea how resolve it. The PM, […]
