Threat to Endless Subsidies Sends Australia’s Renewable Energy Companies Into Meltdown

Wind and solar power were both founded on lies and myth, and can only exist when and where massive subsidies are practically perpetual. Now that it’s become impossible for them to hide the obvious relationship between intermittent wind and solar and rocketing power prices and grid instability, the pleading to maintain the subsidies that sustain them, […]

Dog-Ate-My-Homework ‘Defence’: Wind Industry Blames Poor ‘Performance’ on the Weather

Wind Power Subsidy Cuts Kill Thousands of Green Jobs: Siemens Sacks 6,000 Workers

So it must’ve been a rude shock to find out that the fortunes of wind power outfits depend upon … ahem … the weather. Lack of wind a big blow for Infigen ABC News Stephen […]

Renewables Rent-Seekers Panic as Wind Power Operators Forced to Pay Back-Up Costs

If there is one thing that renewables-rent-seekers dread more than calm and cloudy weather, it has to be uncertainty. Always keen to preach about how cheap wind power has become, but always reticent to release their grip on the subsidy teat, the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers are now in a flat panic after […]

AGL’s Renewables Ruse: The Solution to Australia’s Energy Crisis Isn’t More Subsidised Wind Turbines & Solar Panels

While choice remains an option, the adage that ‘when you’re in a hole stop digging’ obviously applies when you find yourself in the midst of a disaster of your very own doing. Australia’s unfolding energy calamity has turned what was once an energy superpower, into an international laughing stock. Blessed with abundant coal, gas and […]
