Power to the People: Australian Voters Demand Reliable & Affordable Electricity & Coal Just Keeps on Delivering

The 2019 Federal Election was billed as a referendum on ‘Climate Change’. The Green/Labor Alliance promised an all wind and sun powered future, starting with a 50% RET and a crippling carbon dioxide gas tax, dressed up as a 45% CO2 emissions reduction target. Every political pundit from Perth to Penrith picked Labor to win […]

Crunch Time: Australia’s Renewable Energy Rent-Seekers Suicidal After Coalition Victory

  The ‘shock’ Federal election result has left RE energy rent seekers reeling. What was meant to be a Green/Labor landslide – with the promise that subsidies to wind and solar would double and be extended until kingdom come – returned not only the Liberal/National Coalition to power, but left the Energy Minister, Angus Taylor […]

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

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target reads like a National suicide note, but the land of Oz is no orphan in that regard. If the enemies of state were looking for insidious, all-pervasive policy perfectly designed to wreck an economy from within (while barely raising a murmur amongst the proles), they need look no further than ratcheting […]

Beggaring Belief: No Sensible German Believes in Wind & Solar ‘Transition’, Anymore

  Mainstream media have gone quiet on Germany’s ‘inevitable’ transition to an all wind and sun powered future. The debacle that’s playing out in Deutschland apparently doesn’t suit their narrative, anymore. It’s like kids hanging onto the belief that Santa Claus is real, long after they’ve tumbled to the fact that it’s their fat Uncle […]

Counting the Cost: Wind & Solar Obsession Means Californian Power Prices 50% Higher Than US Average

Claims that wind and solar are cheap, simply don’t add up. Glaring examples such as Germany, Denmark and South Australia tell the tale. Like night follows day, add heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid, and power prices are bound to spiral out of control. For RE zealots it’s one of […]

Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘New Green Deal’ is a New Dark Ages Nightmare

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the Green-left’s favourite flibbertigibbet. Her New Green Deal, with its promise of 100% wind and solar delivering power for all, for free and for all time, should have been dismissed as fairytale nonsense, long ago. However, there are plenty of pixie dream girls and boys happy to suck it up, like there’s […]

Dancin’ With the Devil: 100% Wind & Solar Targets = Guaranteed Economic & Social Catastrophe

Delusional and dangerous, sums up those peddling 100% wind and solar targets. No country on earth has ever powered itself entirely using sunshine and breezes. And no country ever will. Sunset and calm weather are real things. On the other hand, mega-batteries are a mixture of myth and nonsense. At the margins, technically possible. But, […]
