No Dice: Democrats ‘New Green Deal’ Nothing More Than Costly Fantasy

That we’re on the brink of an all wind and sun powered future is an audacious wheeze that sits at the heart of the ‘New Green Deal’. Any sentient being, bothering to apply a little superficial consideration, understands that the claim that wind and solar will soon provide 100% of our electricity needs is complete […]

Reaping the Whirlwind: Shutting Coal-Fired Power Plants Guarantees Rocketing Power Prices

  Australia’s wind and solar capital, South Australia destroyed its last coal-fired power plant and now suffers the world’s highest power prices. Its economy is already a basket case, with much worse to come. However, RE zealots seem to treat SA in the same way that gamblers treat their losses: they never mention them, and […]

Wind Industry ‘Pay’ Cut: Whopping Transmission Losses See Remote Wind Farm Revenue Slashed

The Australian wind industry has a habit of spearing its turbines way beyond the back of beyond. Increasingly remote wind farm locations require serious upgrades to transmission infrastructure, adding hundreds of $millions to transmission costs, that would have otherwise been avoided, had Australia simply stuck with conventional generators and not squandered $60,000,000,000 in subsidies to […]

Totally ‘Gored’: Texan Town Pays Heavy Price for 100% Wind & Solar Vanity Project

Keen to pay ridiculous amounts for power in an act of pointless vanity? – get your town to go 100% wind & solar. Georgetown, Texas did and its 71,000 citizens are paying a heavy price. Despite the hype, the town isn’t being exclusively powered by sunshine and breezes; quietly and ever so hypocritically the town […]

Annual Cost of Australia’s Solar Subsidy Scam Hits $2 Billion & Sends Power Prices Into Orbit

The line that Australia’s rocketing power prices will soon plummet is just a cruel hoax. The subsidies for large-scale wind and solar under the Federal government’s Large-Scale RET will total more than $60 billion over the life of that scheme: the Renewable Energy Certificates issued under the LRET have already added more than $15 billion […]

Germany’s Renewable Energy Disaster – Part 3: Wind & Solar Deemed ‘Economic Nonsense’

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle. German power prices have rocketed; blackouts and load shedding are the norm; and once bucolic farmland has been turned into industrial wastelands (see above). Hundreds of billions of euros have been squandered on subsidies to wind and solar, […]

Australia’s Self-Inflicted Renewable Energy Crisis: 200,000 Families Can’t Afford Power

Relying on subsidised, intermittent and unreliable wind and solar results in rocketing power prices. Rocketing power prices results in a cycle of grinding, daily misery for the poorest and most vulnerable. More than 100,000 Australian families had their power cut off last year, and a further 100,000 are on payment plans with their power retailers […]
