Failed Experiment: Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Have Never Worked & Never Will

Three decades, massive subsidies and yet intermittent wind power’s contribution to world energy needs remains little more than a rounding error. Electricity that can’t be delivered as and when it’s needed has no commercial value; massive subsidies are the only ‘value’ that attracts investors to wind and solar. Cut the subsidies and wind and solar […]

Suicide Watch: Insane Wind & Solar Obsession Helping Wreck Australia’s Economy

The industrial revolution was all about harnessing cheap and reliable energy. Australia’s de-industrialisation has reversed that process. An obsession with chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar has sent Australian power prices through the roof. Energy hungry businesses such as mining, mineral processing and manufacturing are watching their profit margins evaporate. Pretty soon those […]

Wicked Waste: Voter Fury At The Staggering & Mounting Cost of Australia’s Wind & Solar Subsidies

  By throwing another lazy $billion dollars at intermittent wind and solar, PM Scott Morrison has not only lost the constituency that voted for him, he’s lost the plot. 20 years ago, Australians enjoyed the cheapest power in the world; now they the prices they suffer are up there with the world’s most expensive. All […]

Ripping Yarns: Wind & Sun Can’t Power the World: Never Have & Never Will

You know we’ve reached peak stupid when adults line up to be lectured by troubled teenage girls on energy and world economics. Greta the Fretter and the lunatics gluing themselves to roads under the banner of the Extinction Rebellion have made the work of the sane and rational so much easier. For a decade or […]

Monumental Fail: Why Intermittent & Unreliable Wind & Solar Can Never Work

No industrial economy ever powered itself on wind and solar; no such country ever will. Sunset and calm weather are very real things; whereas grid-scale storage electricity is a myth. As subsidies for wind and solar are drying up, rent-seekers hoping to cash in are running a mile. There has been an almost total collapse […]

Reboot Required: Fixing Wind & Solar Debacle Means Winding the Clock Back 30 Years

Lamenting their rocketing power bills and dreading mass blackouts this coming summer, Australians can be forgiven for their sense of despair. Australians once enjoyed the world’s cheapest power, reliably delivered, just like running water. No one talked about their power bills at backyard barbecues, or kept promising themselves that must have diesel generator to keep […]

New Inquisition: Renewable Energy Zealots Can’t Face Facts Like Sunset & Calm Weather

  The Spanish Inquisition literally roasted heretics alive, these days it’s anyone who dares question the mantra that wind and solar power are our only salvation from imminent climate doom. No country has ever powered itself on sunshine and breezes; no country ever will. The simple daily occurrence of sunset and calm weather provides the […]
