Consumer Revolt: No One Wants to Pay for ‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar Transition

People are happier spending other people’s money rather than their own. So it is when it comes to bearing the staggering cost of our ‘inevitable’ transition to an all wind and sun powered future. In a monumental RE marketing back-fire the Center for Climate Change Communication at George Mason University has uncovered the rather troubling […]

Total Flop: 20 years & $60 Billion in Subsidies, Wind & Solar ‘Deliver’ Risible 7% of Australia’s Power Demand

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 $18 billion […]

Regressive Renewables: Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar Deliberately Designed to Destroy Wealth & Prosperity

Follow The Money: Self-Interested Fiction Supplants Hard-Coal-Facts in Mythical ‘Transition’ to All Wind & Solar Future

  Ignore the voluble pomposity and faux moral piety, the sole motivation driving RE zealotry is money. Lots and lots of other people’s money. And forget about saving the planet, this is about making a group of cynical, conniving and audacious rent-seekers fabulously, indeed filthy, rich.

Liberal MPs Demand End to Australia’s Economy-Wrecking, Hidden $60bn Federal Power Tax

Already suffering the world’s highest power prices, Australian power consumers have watched prices jump by anything up to 28% in 12 months.
