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 […]

Wanna Wreck Your Economy? Just Add Unreliable Subsidised Wind & Solar

  Australia’s energy system is a diabolical mess, largely thanks to the Federal Government’s Renewable Energy Target. But the Feds can’t take all the blame, in all instances. A number of States – usually headed by Trotskyites, like Chairman Dan Andrews – are determined to destroy the last vestiges of their economies. What the Fed’s […]

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 […]

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 […]
