Cut the Subsidies and ‘Green’ Jobs Instantly Vanish: 80,000 German Solar Workers Sacked

  Remember all those stories about the wind & solar industries providing millions of groovy, well-paid ‘green’ jobs – as secure as Fort Knox? No?

Britain Squanders £7bn a Year on Stone Age Wind Power

It takes a ‘special’ kind of person to still believe that a country can run itself on sunshine and breezes.

Except, that the wind industry has never produced a shred of credible evidence that chaotic and intermittent wind power has actually reduced CO2 gas emissions, anywhere on that planet. If CO2’s your ‘poison’, wind […]

Postcards from The Edge: The Naked Insanity of Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle

  Australia’s self-inflicted energy crisis is an IQ test for anyone game to take the challenge.

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 […]
