Armageddon Beckons: National Energy Guarantee Crushes Australia’s Wind Industry

Renewables rent-seekers are nothing if not sore losers. A heartbeat ago it seemed as if the subsidies for renewables would last until kingdom come, and wind and solar power outfits could get away with the completely unpredictable and haphazardly occasional ‘delivery’ of power at ridiculous prices. Now, PM, Malcolm Turnbull’s National Energy Guarantee has turned […]

Determined to Destroy Cheap Power Supplies – Renewables Zealots Out to Kill the Poor

Those smug know-it-alls that champion wind and solar power persistently claim the high moral ground, but religiously ignore the inevitable victims of their faux eco-zealotry: the poorest and most vulnerable in society, for whom paying for power has become an existential battle. To the billions in the Third World, where electricity has for too long […]

Counting the Cost of Subsidised Wind Power: Some Basic Facts

The generation that have come to worship wind and solar power operate in a fact and consequence free zone, where logic and reason were bound and gagged from the beginning. Their finest trait is their ability to shift the narrative, when troublesome facts – like blackouts caused by wind power output collapses and rocketing power […]

Renewable Chaos Shock Treatment: Australia’s Politicians Panic at Threat of Looming Blackouts

As the political panic spreads, it’s quite apparent, that those who created the disaster have almost no idea how resolve it. The PM, […]

Malice as a ‘Virtue’: Cost of Subsidised Renewables Power Means the Poorest Go Hungry

Worshipping windmills and posing prostrate before panels is a fast track towards being regarded by one’s peers as the King or Queen of the Virtue Signallers. Moral posturing begins with an appropriately preened identity, which can be paraded in front of all, provided that it’s PC perfect. Hence, the use of a motley bearded, hipster […]

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 […]
