Government Surrenders: PM Hoists White Flag on Australia’s Self-inflicted Renewable Energy Crisis

  With Labor threatening a 50% RET and a giant carbon tax, Australian industry is ready to pack up stumps and leave.

Australia’s Giant Renewables Rip-Off: Counting The Colossal Cost of Pointless Virtue Signalling

Australia’s obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar has absolutely nothing to do with the climate.

Scoundrel’s Paradise: Subsidised Wind & Solar The Greatest Scam on Earth

  The only way of explaining the push for subsidised wind and solar is money. And when we say money, we mean hundreds of billions of dollars of other people’s money. In Australia alone, the Federal Government’s Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target will redirect over $60 billion in subsidies to wind and large-scale solar operators (all […]

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.
