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 […]

Politics of Power: Spiralling Power Prices Signal End for Wind & Solar Subsidies

In Australia, nothing stops a barbecue like the topic of ever spiralling power prices. Across the country, retail power prices have been rising at double-digit rates for the last four years: across the NEM States and the ACT retail power prices have increased between 13 and 28% – year-on-year – over the last three years. More […]

Giant Renewable Energy Debacle Demands Even Bigger Lies: Boffins Claim More Wind & Solar Guaranteed to Cut Power Prices

Efforts by RE zealots to maintain control of Australia’s energy policy have turned to high farce. Working on the adage that the bigger the lie, the more often that it’s told, the more people are likely to believe it, the AEMO’s Audrey Zibelman and the Energy Security Board’s Kerry Schott have decided to take reality, […]

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.

This country wouldn’t be debating Josh Frydenberg’s National Energy Guarantee, the Australian Competition & Consumer […]

Businesses & Families Despair Over Rocketing Power Prices: Energy Minister in Fantasy-land

Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity was caused by lunatics obsessed with wind and solar power: trouble is, they’re still in charge. The Energy Minister, Josh Frydenberg demonstrates an astonishing lack of insight into the obvious cause and consequences of the debacle (further examples of which appear in the Alan Jones interview, laid out below). […]

Coal-Fired Future: Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle Puts Fossil Fuels Front & Centre

South Australia’s embattled power consumers determined to ditch Jay Weatherill’s Labor government and its maniacal 75% RET. While what follows is a whole lot less certain than outright immediate economic self-annihilation, South Australians aren’t out of the woods, just yet. Indeed, nothing much has really changed, at all. The weather is still the key determinant […]

Renewables Debacle Rolls On: Power Politics Always & Everywhere About Power Prices

That a government decides to entertain a moment of self-congratulation – simply because the lights might stay on – would be understandable, if the Country in question was North Korea or Cuba. However, the primary purpose of Malcolm Turnbull’s National Energy Guarantee is just that: allowing the Federal government to claim ‘mission accomplished’, if Australia […]
