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 […]

Rent-Seeker’s Nirvana: Ultra-Rich Pocket $Billions in Wind & Solar Subsidies at Our Expense

The hundreds of $billions paid in subsidies to intermittent wind and solar constitute the largest wealth transfer in economic history.

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

Renewable Energy Zealots Surrender: Coal Will Continue to Power Australia for 20 More Years

Renewable energy zealots claim spiralling power prices and rolling blackouts are just ‘teething troubles’ as we ‘transition’ to our 100% all RE future. On their worldview, it’s a matter of when, not if, modern economies end up completely ditching ‘dirty’ coal-fired power plants, and otherwise wean themselves off fossil fuels, altogether. Trouble is, in places […]

Subsidised Wind & Solar Driving Out-of-Control Power Prices: Business Hit With 24% Hike

Australia’s energy policy has been hijacked by lunatics, whose persistent ignorance has left it with out-of-control power prices and a grid all set to collapse. Pinning your energy needs to the weather was never going to pan out all that well. Of the Australian states, South Australia set the benchmark for virtue signalling stupidity; establishing […]

Wind Power Output Collapses Send Power Prices into Orbit: The World’s Biggest Joke Just Got Serious

Intermittent wind and solar are a natural guarantee of grid chaos and rocketing power prices. The debacle that started in the renewable energy ‘superpower’, also known as South Australia has broken the border and is spreading fast. New South Wales is now being treated to a lesson on how increasing reliance on the ‘unreliables’ inevitably […]
