Destination Destruction: Labor’s 50% Renewable Energy Target Means Wholesale Industry Wipe-out

  Bill Shorten’s 50% RET is guaranteed to send power prices soaring, destroying whole industries and thousands of well-paid jobs. Shorten is a man ready to tax Australians out of existence, and is salivating at the prospect of delivering his blow-the-joint-up, socialist agenda. To get control of the Parliament, Labor will inevitably team up with […]

Australia’s Self-Inflicted Energy Crisis Screaming Out for Nuclear Powered Solution

  Few issues demonstrate how childish the level of political discourse is in Australia than nuclear power. Its mere mention drives the loony-left into apoplexy and moderates into hiding. Australia holds the world’s largest uranium reserves and, despite its limited three mines policy, is the world’s third-largest uranium exporter. So, it generally surprises other members […]

Psycho Simon: Renewable Energy Zealots Incite Terrorism Against Wind & Solar Critics

As a rule, RE zealots are not only stupid and selfish, they’re invariably nasty and prone to fits of outrage and violence. Leading the gang in Australia is silver-spooner, Simon Holmes a Court. Simon has a Masters in Smug, the result of the enormous pile accumulated by his (late) billionaire corporate-raider daddy, Robert. And claims […]

Reality Bites: Cheap Coal-Fired Power Killing Dreams of Australian Wind & Solar ‘Nirvana’

Wind and solar don’t compete with coal-fired power; never have, never will. You see, ‘competition’ involves starting from the same position, running the same race, over the same distance, without respite, laydown or let up. Calm weather and sunset don’t trouble coal-fired power plants (or gas or nuclear, for that matter). But the same can’t […]

Brits Belted: Renewables Deliver Wholesale Energy Poverty – Poorest Families Left Power-less

RE zealots reckon that an uptick in the number of frozen grannies is a small price to pay for our ‘inevitable’ wind and solar powered future. As Brits brace for another frigid winter, spare a thought for the hundreds of thousands who – thanks to rocketing power prices driven by Britain’s renewables obsession – will […]

Solar Stupidity: Subsidy Bonanza Delivers Mass Rooftop Solar Rollout & Grid Chaos

Heavily subsidised rooftop solar is an enormous middle-class welfare scheme, the consequence of a political class wedded to vacuous virtue signalling. At the theoretical level – when the sun is up and the sky is cloud free – solar panels are generating electricity around 6.5 hours a day (on average). During their most virtuous cycle, […]

Power Shock: Chicago University Proves Unreliable Wind & Solar Send Power Prices Soaring

Adding chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid is a guarantee of rocketing power prices. The battle between the Big Three wind and solar ‘superpowers’ – South Australia, Germany and Denmark – is all about whether its South Australians, Germans or Danes who get to suffer the world’s highest power prices. The current ‘winner’ […]
