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’ […]

Marriage Meltdown: How A Love Affair With Intermittent Wind & Solar Ended In Tears

Australia’s grab bag of renewable energy policies are like a marriage made in hell. Destroying its once reliable grid and sending power prices through the roof, Federal and State Renewable Energy Targets are designed to destroy conventional generators. And, so far, they’ve done an admirable job. Australia now faces a summer of widespread blackouts and […]

South Australia’s 50% Renewable Energy Fail: World’s Highest Power Prices Caused by Subsidised Wind & Solar

South Australians suffer the world’s highest power prices because they rely on heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind & solar. It’s a relationship for which the economic backwater has become world renowned. Along with its notoriety as a (notionally) first world economy with a third world power supply. If you’re looking to attack the infantile […]

Blackout Nation: Chaotic Delivery of Wind & Solar Causing Blackouts & Wrecking Australia’s Power Grid

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 […]

Dumb & Dumber: Why Trying to Rely On Intermittent Wind & Solar Power Is Utterly Stupid

A nine-year-old knows the sun sets and the wind stops blowing, but a cohort remain convinced that that an all RE future is upon us. Which begs the question: which is dumber? Wind and solar power? Or those that believe they constitute meaningful power generation sources? Norman Rogers provides a helpful analysis below for those […]

Renewable Energy’s Dirty Dozen: 12 Reasons Why Chaotically Intermittent & Heavily Subsidised Wind & Solar Power Make No Sense

It takes a special brand of delusion to believe that the world can run on sunshine and breezes. For wind and sun worshippers, disastrous examples like South Australia – where mass blackouts and load shedding have become the new normal – require not just practiced delusion but a form of self-flagellating stoicism, as well. Oh, […]

Wind & Solar Built On Endless Lies, Broken Promises & Massive Subsidies

The greatest con job in history started with the idea that you can run an economy on sunshine and breezes. Sequentially, inevitably, every myth and lie put forward by renewable energy rent seekers and their shrinking band of acolytes gets busted and exposed. Lines like: wind power is cheaper than coal (it isn’t); the wind […]
