Subsidised Renewables Revolt: Entrenched Energy Poverty Source of Next Revolution

Power prices driven through the roof by subsidised and unreliable wind and solar means electricity is out of reach for thousands of struggling households. Reliable and affordable electricity is at the heart of modern, socially stable societies. Deprive the masses of something that has been taken for granted for generations, and get set for serious […]

Renewables Road to Nowhere: Subsidised Wind & Solar Just Don’t Work & Never Will

In the absence of mandates directing grid managers to take chaotic wind or solar power ahead of conventional power and/or massive subsidies directed to retailers encouraging them to take it and/or heavy fines imposed on them if they refuse to, there is simply no commercial market for power which can only be generated occasionally, in […]

Power Shock: Renewables Meltdown Leaves Australians With Power Shortages & Crippling Power Bills

The erratic and occasional delivery of wind and solar has sent wholesale power prices into orbit and major energy users are simply being chopped from the grid when wind and/or solar output hits the floor. Consumers have just been hit with retail power bills which are between 20 and 30% higher than the same time last […]

Wind & Solar Industries Outraged: EU Declares Nuclear & Gas Are “Green” Too

Rent-seekers have been telling us that wind and solar will soon not only displace, but entirely replace, our “ageing” coal-fired power plants, knock gas-fired plants out of the ballpark and crush nuclear power plants before they even enter the contest. Such was the hype, anyway. Then came 2021. Massive month-long wind droughts left wind power […]

Energy Embrace: Nuclear Power’s Inherent Reliability Key To Permanent Energy Security

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has focused minds on energy policy like nothing before. Europe’s self-defeating reliance on Russian oil and gas has exposed the so-called wind and solar ‘transition’ as a delusional farce. Adding chaotically intermittent wind and solar to a grid, while driving reliable and affordable coal-fired plants to the wall, inevitably requires oil […]

No Time To Lose: Reliable, Affordable Emissions Free Nuclear Power’s Time Is Right Now

Anyone talking about reducing carbon dioxide emissions and not talking about nuclear power, can’t be taken seriously. Europe’s months-long wind drought in the last half of 2021 demonstrated the dangerous futility of attempting to rely on mother nature for your energy needs. Which is why the French, among others, are now talking about nuclear power as if it […]

Reality Check: Last Chance to Learn From Europe’s Renewable Energy Disaster

Europe is paying the price for its suicidal obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar. The power pricing and supply calamity that’s hit Germany and others was as perfectly predictable as it was perfectly avoidable. Power prices are out of control and weather-driven power rationing is the new normal. The Germans once had heroic plans […]

International Climate Changed: Putin’s War Destroys Great ‘Green’ Energy Reset

Vladimir Putin’s march across Ukraine has wrecked plans to slash man-made carbon oxide gas emissions with net-zero targets. Remember a month or so back, when the most pressing challenge was the apparent need to tame global weather using endless subsidies for billions more solar panels and millions more giant industrial wind turbines? When fossil fuels […]

No Nonsense Solution: Nuclear Ultimate Answer to Powering an Energy Hungry World

Nothing focuses thinking on energy policy like not having heat, light and power on tap. With Europe now hostage to its aggressive Eastern neighbour – thanks to a maniacal obsession with intermittent wind and solar and the need to back it up with oil and gas – policy wonks of all descriptions have started talking […]

No End Date For Coal & Nuclear: Gas Crunch Drives Germany’s Grand Renewables Backflip

A month or so back, Germany’s green-infested government was talking up the end of coal and nuclear power plants; the last phase in its ‘inevitable’ transition to an all wind and sun-powered future, as the wind and sun cult would have it. Well. That was then, this is now. With the squeeze on Russian gas […]
