Frydenberg Fiddles as Renewables Disaster Hits Businesses with 30% Annual Power Price Hike

  Flummoxed renewable energy zealots can’t escape the obvious connection between heavily subsidised and utterly unreliable renewables and rocketing power prices. As Malcolm Turnbull and Josh Frydenberg close ranks to protect renewables rent seekers (including the PM’s son, Alex), the casualties keep mounting. One of those is Len Morabito, who operates four independent supermarkets. In […]

Dunce School: Electricity Generation 101 for the Wind & Sun Worshipper

It takes a special brand of ignorance to still believe that the world can run on sunshine and breezes. Whether you blame a breakdown in the education system or a Trotskyite takeover of the mainstream media, the results are the same: there’s a stubborn rump who continue to turn fantasy into ‘fact’; who are incapable […]

No ‘Comparison’ Between Part-time Wind Power & Full-time Fossil Fuel

Renewables rent seekers keep telling us how cheap wind and solar are, compared to those ‘evil’ fossil fuels, coal and gas. But ‘price’ and ‘value’ are not the same animals. What we pay for something, and what it’s worth depends entirely upon what we get. And, in relation to the consumption of electricity, whether or […]

Turnbull’s Energy Dilemma: Pro-Coal Monash Forum Threatens PM’s Tenuous Grip on Power

  Politics is a cruel caper and, in Australia, the politics of power is merciless. Malcolm Turnbull has just lost 30 Newspolls in a row; the apparently fatal number that gave him licence to knife a sitting PM, Tony Abbott in September 2015. In an election fought on Labor’s ‘Carbon Tax’ (a monstrously expensive tax […]

Australia’s Endless Renewable Energy Nightmare: Subsidies Worth $4bn a Year Run Until 2031

  The line that Australia’s rocketing power prices will soon plummet is just a cruel hoax. The subsidies for large-scale wind and solar under the Federal government’s Large-Scale RET will total more than $60 billion over the life of that scheme: the Renewable Energy Certificates issued under the LRET have already added more than $15 […]

Never Ending Story: Texans Forced to Shell Out $Billions More in Wind Power Subsidies

One thing you’ll never, ever hear from wind power outfits is a call to cut the subsidies that sustain them. Remarkably, whether in Germany, Australia, Ontario or Texas, renewables rent seekers all speak the same language. When talk turns to subsidies, you’ll only ever hear words like ‘more’. Challenge them about their nonsensical claims that […]

‘Green’ Energy Fail: How Ideology Destroyed Australia’s Once Cheap & Reliable Power Supply

Wrecking a power market and a power grid is a piece of cake: just add massively subsidised, unreliable and intermittent wind and solar. Ontario, Denmark and Germany provide pertinent examples. But there’s none better than Australia, particularly because it’s blessed with abundant coal, gas and uranium reserves, the envy of the World. Hijacked by renewables […]
