Powering Australia: Keeping the Lights On Means Coal-Fired Power For Generations to Come

Australia is in the process of destroying what was the world’s most reliable and affordable power supply. The destruction is all down to heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Meanwhile, our major Asian trading partners, China and Japan are chewing up Australian coal and uranium as fast as we can ship it – […]

Breakout the Candles: Chaotic Wind & Solar Mean More Mass Summertime Blackouts

The chaotic delivery of wind and solar has left Australia’s Eastern Grid on the brink of collapse. The Eastern Grid connects Queensland, New South Wales, the ACT, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia. Reliable coal-fired generators have been knocked out of the game, made uneconomic thanks to renewable energy policies that direct more than $3 billion a […]

No Contest: Wind & Solar Can Never Compete With Ever Reliable & Affordable Coal-Fired Power

  It won’t be long before RE zealots are forced to accept defeat: wherever you look, coal, gas, hydro and nuclear keep thrashing wind and solar. Not simply because they’re cheaper, but because they work. And when we say ‘work’ STT means delivering power when and whenever consumers need it. STT doesn’t promote coal-fired power […]

Living in Australia? Then You’re Being Powered By Coal – So Deal With It!

If you’re reading this post in Australia, you’re doing so thanks to coal-fired power. Don’t like it? Then get off the internet. And, while you’re at it, turn off your lights, your air-conditioner, let your smart phone run flat and, just for laughs, start tackling busy intersections without the benefit of traffic lights. Wind ‘powered’ […]

Energy Minister – Angus Taylor: Subsidised Wind & Solar ‘Virtue Signalling with Other People’s Money’

  The world was overrun by insanely costly and chaotically intermittent wind and solar, thanks to an endless stream of other people’s money. Preaching the gospel about nature’s wonder fuels, isn’t simply about moral posturing and virtue signalling. It’s also about separating taxpayers and power consumers from their hard-earned: over the life of the Federal […]

Energy Minister Under Siege: Australian Businesses Refuse to Shut Down During Wind Power Collapses

Business operators have just worked out that Australia’s renewable energy policies are deliberately designed to destroy them. Concepts such as ‘demand management’ (state-ordered deliberate blackouts) are the natural result of seeking to run an entire economy on sunshine and breezes. This country wouldn’t be debating Josh Frydenberg’s National Energy Guarantee, the Australian Competition & Consumer […]

Bureaucrats Backtrack: ‘Transition’ to Wind & Solar Now Deemed Impossible Before 2040

Suddenly, came the realisation that subsidised wind and solar will never replace Australia’s coal-fired power plants. The idea that they ever could was, of course, a perfect nonsense. Talk about being ‘technology agnostic’, ‘inevitable transitions’ and wind and solar actually ‘competing’ with coal, gas and hydro, say more about the protagonist’s state of mental health, […]
