Wrecking Ball: Australia’s Fixation With Subsidised Renewables Guarantees Economic Disaster

If the object was wrecking every last manufacturing, mineral processing and mining job, then Australia’s renewable energy policy has delivered on time and under budget. Starting in 2001 with John Howard’s Renewable Energy Target (massively expanded by Kevin Rudd in 2009), the subsidies being squandered on intermittent wind and solar are now in the order […]

Power Politics: Want to Win Elections? Then Don’t Ignore Spiralling Electricity Prices

With Biden and the Squad in the White House, the Californian experience of spiralling power prices will soon be delivered to all Americans, thanks to a raft of suicidal renewable energy policies that are about to be landed across the USA. The energy hungry businesses and industries that Trump brought home, will soon start packing […]

How to Destroy Reliable & Affordable Power Supplies: Just Add Subsidised Wind & Solar

Australians once enjoyed the cheapest and most reliable power in the world; now they suffer the world’s highest prices and they’re lucky to get power, at all. Throwing billions at weather-dependent wind and sunshine dependent solar has had the inevitable consequence of destroying both the reliability and affordability electricity, in a country blessed with vast […]

Peanuts to Pay For Total Chaos: Wind Power Outfit Fined $1 Million For Causing Statewide Blackout

On 28 September 2016, the automatic shutdown of wind turbines in South Australia during a spring storm delivered a statewide ‘system black’. South Australia’s hapless Premier, Jay Weatherill led the wind industry’s propaganda charge, pointing the finger at the collapse of a couple of power pylons in the state’s mid-North as the cause of a […]

Massive & Endless Subsidies Destroy Claim That Wind & Solar Cheapest Of All

In the ‘pigs might fly category’ sits the claim that intermittent wind and solar are the cheapest power sources, amongst all contenders. Were there even a shred of truth to that story, then renewable energy rent seekers wouldn’t be hounding policymakers at every turn to ensure that the massive subsidies they currently enjoy be guaranteed […]

New World Disorder: Climate Cult Bully Boys Holding Australian Business to Ransom

Apparently, worshipping wind turbines and solar panels isn’t enough for the climate cult, which increasingly asserts its perverse influence in all manner of commercial dealings. Berating banks on where their funds should be directed – heaven forbid any financier considers ever bankrolling mining, especially coal, oil or gas; and naming and shaming any enterprise that […]

Society Wreckers: Renewable Energy Cult Determined to Destroy Industry Wealth & Jobs

Crawling out of a post Covid economic wasteland, requires getting industry and business back on their feet, which in turn requires reliable and affordable electricity, delivered whatever the weather. But that approach would require tapping into our good friends, logic and reason. In the Australian state of New South Wales, logic was tortured to death […]

Labor’s Power Brawl: ALP’s Hard-Green Left Destroying Workers’ Party With Wind & Solar Obsession

  Australia’s Labor Party was started in 1891 by QLD sheepshearers on strike, fighting for better wages and conditions; over a Century it became the party of ideas. Nowadays, it is unrecognizable, on either score. A hard-green left intelligentsia hijacked the party, long ago; pushing nonsensical CO2 emissions and renewable energy targets, and an anti-mining […]

Hour of Power: $2 Billion Spent on Solar Panels to ‘Power’ State With Sunshine for 60 Minutes

  In the wacko wonderland of South Australia, a brief burst of sunshine managed to ‘power’ the economic backwater for a staggering 60 minutes. SA is venerated as Australia’s Wind and Solar capital; and the renewables cult is heralding this, apparently, momentous event as their ‘Hour of Power’. Their childish cheering, ignores the fact that […]

Quiet Achiever: While PM Keeps Talking About Gas, Coal Just Keeps On Powering Australia

The Federal Coalition’s ‘plan’ to power Australia with gas-fired power plants it has yet to build, with gas supplies it does not have sounds more like palliative care than a cure for its self-inflicted power pricing and supply calamity. Having wrecked our once reliable grid by subsidising chaotically intermittent wind and solar, it seems it’s […]
