Atomic Reaction: Self-Inflicted Wind & Solar Debacle Means Australia Needs Nuclear Now

Sensible Australians know chaotically intermittent wind and solar can never work, forcing MPs to demand ever-reliable nuclear power, instead. True it is that coal-fired power provides around 80% of the electricity consumed among those states connected to the Eastern Grid (Queensland, NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia). But, as a result of the obscene subsidies […]

Pricing Vanity: Counting the Crushing Costs of Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar

The claim that renewables are cheaper than coal, gas and nuclear is simply nonsense. There’s a reason why wind and solar obsessed Germany, Denmark and South Australia fight it out for the honour of paying the world’s highest power prices. Where conventional generators can be counted on to deliver 24 x 7, wind and solar […]

Renewable Energy Rejection: Australia’s Election Result Demonstrates Demand for Reliable & Affordable Power

The “shock” Federal election result represents a new dawn for reliable and affordable power generation in Australia. The 2019 election was billed as a referendum on Climate Change, with Labor’s Bill Shorten pitching up a 50% Renewable Energy Target and a whopping carbon dioxide gas tax, to boot. Bill also promised that he would eradicate […]

BP’s ‘Green’ Hypocrisy: Why Big Oil Promotes Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar

Remember all that talk a few years back about wind and solar replacing fossil fuels, forever? No? That’s because they can’t, and never will. Sunset and calm weather mean wind and solar can and will never replace conventional power generators. By ‘conventional’ we mean coal, gas, nuclear and, where geography and geology permit, stored hydro […]

Dancin’ With the Devil: 100% Wind & Solar Targets = Guaranteed Economic & Social Catastrophe

Delusional and dangerous, sums up those peddling 100% wind and solar targets. No country on earth has ever powered itself entirely using sunshine and breezes. And no country ever will. Sunset and calm weather are real things. On the other hand, mega-batteries are a mixture of myth and nonsense. At the margins, technically possible. But, […]

Seriously Shortchanged: Germans to Squander €4.6 Trillion on Intermittent Wind & Solar – Get 2.5% of Their Energy In Return

If the recent and idiotic obsession with intermittent wind and solar needed a pinup girl, it would have to be Germany. No country has squandered more treasure on giant windmills and an endless sea of solar panels. For all that wanton environmental destruction, Germans get a meagre 2.5% of their primary energy demand satisfied by […]

No Road Back: Obsession with Intermittent Renewables Causes Monster Power Price Surge

  Thanks to coal-fired power, Australia once enjoyed the world’s most reliable and affordable power supply. Not anymore. An obsession with wind and solar – expressed in the form of $70 billion in subsidies, $billions more in government underwritten soft-loans and mandated targets, backed up with punitive fines has sent power prices into orbit. The […]
