Subsidised Wind & Solar: Guaranteed Path to Rocketing Prices & Blackouts

Australia’s diabolically destructive renewable energy policies have led to rocketing power prices and a grid on the brink of collapse. Australian power consumers currently connected to the Eastern Grid (that connects Queensland, New South Wales, ACT, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania) have no idea just how close they are to watching their first total ‘system […]

Australia’s ‘Green’ Dream Turns Political Nightmare: Coalition Backbench in Revolt Against Renewables

If history offers any lessons to our political masters, it has to include those occasions when a fed up proletariat rose up and overthrew those in charge. Australia may not literally be on the brink of a civil revolt. However, there is most certainly a revolt underway in the Federal Liberal/National Coalition government. The Nationals […]

Australia’s Renewable Energy Disaster: Self-Inflicted Power Crisis Goes from Bad to Execrable

  As witless as they are gutless, the Federal Liberal/National Coalition government is tearing itself apart over energy. In particular, renewable energy; and the choice between the existing annual 33,000 GWh Large-Scale RET – roughly 26% of annual consumption, which is already destroying businesses and punishing households with 20% year-on-year price increases (even though the […]

Aboriginal Leader, Warren Mundine Demands End to the Madness: Australia’s Renewable Policy Punishing the Poorest & Most Vulnerable

A few weeks back we reported on a very timely call by an Australian Aboriginal leader, Warren Mundine for Australians to grow up and go Nuclear. Warren isn’t about to let up. Clearly worried about the miserable future being laid out for the poorest and most vulnerable Australians, Warren is, quite rightly, demanding an end […]

Retailers’ Call for ‘Emissions Intensity Scheme’ Signals End for Australia’s Renewable Energy Target

Willing to be accused of stating the bleeding obvious, electricity retailers aren’t in the business of not selling power; they’re in the business of selling power, at a profitable margin, to as many customers as possible. Power retailers in Australia have just come to the horrifying realisation that, with rocketing power prices and an increasingly […]

Australia’s Power Grid Groans: Wind Power Obsession Threatens Lives & Livelihoods

Vain and dishonest, former Labor PM (and Muppet-in-Chief), Kevin Rudd has a lot to answer for. When his predecessor, Liberal PM, John Howard brought in a renewable energy target in 2001, it was set at a tokenistic 2%: clearly a sop to the wind cult, but for Australian businesses and families, a ‘nothing to see […]

‘System Black’: South Australia’s Wind Power Experiment a Costly, Abject Failure

*** No other two word combination strikes more fear into the hearts of the wind industry and its political backers than ‘South Australia’. Rocketing power prices, routine load shedding and mass blackouts are the inevitable results of South Australia’s wind power experiment. Tom Quirk trained as a nuclear physicist at the University of Melbourne. He […]
