RE Reality Check: PM’s $10bn Pumped Hydro Plan to Save Wind Industry Doesn’t Hold Water

  Wind and large-scale solar are doomed, but the saviour is said to be pumped hydro; paid for, of course, with other people’s money. Touted by Turnbull and his hapless sidekick, Josh Frydenberg as the Nation’s mega-battery, the heavily-hyped Snowy 2.0 pumped hydro scheme (shelved in the 1970s because it was uneconomic then) has been […]

Looking for Reasons Why Wind Power Can Never Work? Here’s the Top 21

It doesn’t take a genius to work out that wind power is the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time. All it takes is a little cognitive power and a sense of inquiry.

Renewables Reckoning: Close Coal-Fired Power Plants & Watch Power Prices Rocket

Adding massively subsidised and chaotically delivered wind and solar to a power grid is guaranteed to send power prices through the roof (see above).

Inevitably, the construction of proposed onshore […]
