Don’t Believe The Hype: Britain’s Power Price Hike All Due to Subsidised Wind Power

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Brits are already paying the price for its suicidal renewable energy policies. Under ‘Bonkers’ Boris that price will be positively murderous. His plan to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on subsidies and over-the-market contracts for intermittent offshore wind power beggars belief. And will turn many on the lower […]

Power Battle: Common Sense Abandoned With Push For More Intermittent Wind & Solar

Our good friends’ logic and reason were sacrificed long ago by the High Priests of the wind and solar cult. Attempt to point out the inevitable effect of sunset on solar output and/or calm weather on wind power output and you’ll be branded ‘heretic’, before you know it. You’ll be sent off to an education […]

How to Destroy Reliable & Affordable Power Supplies: Just Add Subsidised Wind & Solar

Australians once enjoyed the cheapest and most reliable power in the world; now they suffer the world’s highest prices and they’re lucky to get power, at all. Throwing billions at weather-dependent wind and sunshine dependent solar has had the inevitable consequence of destroying both the reliability and affordability electricity, in a country blessed with vast […]

Australia’s Subsidised Wind & Solar Rush Threatens Total Power Grid Collapse

Australia’s self-inflicted renewable energy calamity was as perfectly predictable as it was perfectly avoidable. Now, amongst the myriad of energy commissars and boffins, it’s a case of avoiding responsibility for the disaster that everybody (save them) saw coming. For years the likes of Kerry Schott – head of the inaptly named Energy Security Board – […]

Power Policy Hijacked: Renewable Energy Rent Seekers Holding Power Consumers Hostage

  A slavish obsession with intermittent wind and solar has reliably delivered unreliable power and rocketing power prices. The politics of power has been taken out of the hands of voters and is now firmly in the grasp of cashed-up rent seekers – hell-bent on parachuting their own pet candidates into green-tinged seats, across the […]

Massive & Endless Subsidies Destroy Claim That Wind & Solar Cheapest Of All

In the ‘pigs might fly category’ sits the claim that intermittent wind and solar are the cheapest power sources, amongst all contenders. Were there even a shred of truth to that story, then renewable energy rent seekers wouldn’t be hounding policymakers at every turn to ensure that the massive subsidies they currently enjoy be guaranteed […]

Glorious Fiction: Busting the Myth that Wind & Solar Will Soon Power the Planet

Delusions come in various sizes, but the biggest of all is the claim that we’ll soon be powered by nothing but sunshine and breezes. With the prospect of a Sleepy Joe Biden Presidency and the imposition of the Squad’s economy-wrecking New Green Deal the delusion is about to take on monstrous proportions. So, no time […]

Renewables Reckoning: Wind & Solar Deliver Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

Australia’s renewable energy policy reads more like a suicide note than an energy roadmap. In a couple of months – as temperatures rise and, so too, the demand for electricity to power millions of air conditioners – the power rationing will begin in earnest (again) and the daily spot price for electricity will go through […]

S-O-S: Coal-Fired Power Only Answer to Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

  Faced with rocketing power prices and a grid on the brink of collapse, the Morrison Federal government remains committed to the policies that caused the debacle. Instead of ensuring the survival of Australia’s extensive coal-fired power fleet and building new High Efficiency Low Emissions coal-plants, the PM and his Energy Minister have selected a […]

Worse Than Worthless: Intermittent Wind & Solar Cost A Fortune, But Have No True Value

Electricity that can’t be delivered as and when power consumers need it, has no commercial value. Sure, the wind might be ‘free’ and the Sun may never send an invoice to solar panel owners, but wind and solar power are readily the most expensive way of generating chaotically intermittent electricity, known to man. And the […]
