Want Rocketing Power Prices & Grid Chaos? Wind Power’s Your Answer

Deranged and delusional, those that promote wind power come up with all manner of falsehoods to protect their beloved. One of the latest is that conventional generators, namely coal-fired power plants ‘fail all the time’. When presented with images like the one above from Aneroid Energy – depicting the output every wind turbine connected to […]

Avoiding Disaster: Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle Signals Warning to Energy Rich Americans

  Laconic crocodile hunters aside, Australia doesn’t often register in the US of A, but its self-inflicted renewable energy fiasco has clearly placed it on the American radar. News of wind ‘powered’ South Australia’s statewide blackout in September 2016 rendered it an international laughing stock. It also set it up as an example of what […]

Move Over Cuba: Australia’s Renewables Debacle Leads to Mandated Power Rationing

One mark of a developed economy, is its ability to deliver affordable power, without fail. Resource rich Australia once enjoyed the cheapest power prices in the world, blackouts were almost exclusively the result of catastrophic storms, and there was no such thing as mass load shedding. Now, Australia’s self-inflicted renewable energy debacle has left it […]

System Reboot Required: Undoing Australia’s Self-Inflicted Renewable Energy Disaster

  For some strange reason, wind ‘powered’ Victoria and South Australia suffer wholesale prices around double what’s paid in coal-fired Queensland and NSW? Could it be that massively subsidised, intermittent and unreliable wind power has wrecked power markets in Daniel Andrew’s Victoria and Jay Weatherill’s SA? The graphic above appeared in The Australian, a few […]

Business Becalmed: Australia’s Wind ‘Powered’ States Paying Businesses Tens of $Millions to Shut Down When the Wind Stops Blowing

The self-inflicted renewable energy chaos playing out in South Australia and neighbouring Victoria is as costly as it is insane. Both states are headed up by neo-Marxists; and both states have energy policies designed by lunatics. Rocketing retail power prices (SA’s are already the highest in the world, with worse to come), routine load shedding […]

Pipe Dreaming: SA Premier’s Pumped Hydro Scheme an Engineering and Economic Nonsense

  Wind ‘powered’ South Australia is the place where the laws of nature, physics, engineering and economics get turned inside out. Run by a former worker’s injury compensation lawyer, and a band of equally deluded acolytes, South Australia has become the butt of international jokes, thanks to an obsession with nature’s wonder fuels, sunshine and […]

Reaping the Whirlwind: Insane Cost of Renewables Destroying Jobs & Australia’s Economic Prosperity

Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity has a single, proximate cause: massively subsidised, intermittent, unreliable wind and solar power. The relationship is obvious to all but the deliberately obtuse and the rent-seekers that profit from it. Another obvious relationship is how Australia’s enviable wealth and economic prosperity depended upon reliable and affordable power supplies. Now […]
