Dark Ages Deliverance: Australia’s Energy Minister Contracts Coal-Fired Power to Avoid More Mass Blackouts

Intermittent wind and solar guarantee power supply chaos and are a recipe for mass load shedding and blackouts: ask South Australians. While the Federal Energy Minister, Angus Taylor’s public focus has been on reducing power prices, in reality his ‘mission-critical’ is ensuring that there is enough reliable electricity generating capacity in the system to prevent […]

Power Shock: Outrageous Cost of Subsidies Under Ontario’s ‘Green’ Energy Act Escalates

Like South Australia and Germany, Ontario launched headlong into wind power, as if actions no longer had consequences. In all cases, the results have been a disaster. The economic destruction that comes with rocketing power prices, has hollowed out Ontario’s manufacturing base. South Australia’s is now non-existent. And Germany struggles to provide reliable power to […]

Battered Power Consumers Cry Mercy as Climate Cult Ramps Up Renewables Rhetoric

Wind and solar power have never been about logic and reason, it’s a deranged form of ideology that drives their promoters. The zealots that promote that pathetic pair are screaming blue murder, as the political tide turns against them. The rhetoric gets ramped up, even as reality bites.

Powering Australia: Keeping the Lights On Means Coal-Fired Power For Generations to Come

Australia is in the process of destroying what was the world’s most reliable and affordable power supply. The destruction is all down to heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Meanwhile, our major Asian trading partners, China and Japan are chewing up Australian coal and uranium as fast as we can ship it – […]

Perpetually Pathetic Pair: Wind & Solar Require Subsidies From Now Until Kingdom Come

Wind and solar don’t compete with coal and gas; they never have, they never will. Here’s the real news: sunset is a thing; calm weather is a thing. These are not planetary or meteorological oddities. Babble about Australia being well on its way to an ‘orderly transition’ to an all renewables powered future is a little like St […]

Coal Wins Power Price ‘War’: Adding Storage Renders Cost of Wind & Solar Astronomical

The myth that wind and solar are meaningful power sources was busted long ago. Quite apparently incapable of operating on their own, what purports to be the future of electricity generation turns out to be a pair of complete duds. [Note to Ed: is this the part where we point out tricky facts such as […]

Time to ‘Trump’ Paris Climate Deal: Suicidal Energy Policy Based on Hysterical IPCC Report

One of Donald Trump’s first moves as President was to cut the US loose from the suicidal Paris Climate agreement. With cheap energy and an America first approach to economic policy, the USA is attracting international investment in the same way young Royals attract paparazzi. The US economy is booming: the Australian dollar is copping […]
