D-Day For Australia’s Energy Debacle: End of Bipartisan Support Means End for Wind & Solar

As desperate as they are silly, Australia’s renewable energy rent-seekers and the zealots that do their bidding have called in an airstrike on their own position. Making nonsensical claims that adding even more heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar will lead to substantial reductions in retail power prices, has exposed these people for […]

Energy Idiocracy: How Australia’s Power ‘Policy’ Was Hijacked and Destroyed by Idiots

It’s said you shouldn’t assume conspiracy, until you’ve ruled out incompetence. Australia’s energy debacle is, however, a mixture of both. In Mike Judge’s off-the-wall, futuristic comedy, ‘Idiocracy’, lunatics not only take over the asylum, they end up running the United States – into the ground. Starting on the premise that morons began out-breeding the vaguely […]

Crunch Time: Australia’s Self-Inflicted Energy Crisis Demands End to Wind & Solar Subsidies

What’s missing from Australia’s self-inflicted energy crisis, is reason and common sense. When you’ve dug yourself into a hole, the first remedial action is to stop digging. Instead, Australia has a PM, Malcolm Turnbull and an Energy Minister, Josh Frydenberg, determined to wreck every last vestige of productive industry and enterprise in this country, while […]

Adding Intermittent Wind & Solar Guarantees Spiralling Power Prices: Just Ask South Australians

Australia’s Energy Minister, Josh Frydenberg reckons adding more wind and solar will cut power prices, like South Australia never happened. In his efforts to sell his National Energy Guarantee, Frydenberg and his coterie of ‘expert’ advisors have not only ignored reality, they’ve attempted to substitute it with their very own. Over the last decade, there […]

Subsidised Wind & Solar Driving Australian Power Prices Through the Roof

Power prices matter: and they matter most to society’s poorest and most vulnerable. In less than a dozen years, Australia went from enjoying the cheapest power in the world, to suffering the world’s most expensive. In the last three years power prices have risen at double-digit rates: 20 to 24% last year and 13 to […]

Energy Minister Under Siege: Australian Businesses Refuse to Shut Down During Wind Power Collapses

Business operators have just worked out that Australia’s renewable energy policies are deliberately designed to destroy them. Concepts such as ‘demand management’ (state-ordered deliberate blackouts) are the natural result of seeking to run an entire economy on sunshine and breezes. This country wouldn’t be debating Josh Frydenberg’s National Energy Guarantee, the Australian Competition & Consumer […]

Bureaucrats Backtrack: ‘Transition’ to Wind & Solar Now Deemed Impossible Before 2040

Suddenly, came the realisation that subsidised wind and solar will never replace Australia’s coal-fired power plants. The idea that they ever could was, of course, a perfect nonsense. Talk about being ‘technology agnostic’, ‘inevitable transitions’ and wind and solar actually ‘competing’ with coal, gas and hydro, say more about the protagonist’s state of mental health, […]
