Net-Zero Targets Obsession Guaranteed to Destroy Reliable & Affordable Power Supplies

The failure to advance nuclear power in this country to replace coal-fired plants being driven out of business by massive subsidies to wind and solar beggars belief. Everyone with half a brain is alive to the fact that chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar are responsible for Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity Australian households […]

Nuclear Power: Perfect Cure For Wind & Solar Driven Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s power market is in a diabolical mess: massive subsidies to intermittent wind and solar have undermined reliable and affordable power supplies, sending Germany and Denmark’s power prices through the roof (see above). Since Vladimir Putin’s adventure in Ukraine, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per kWh. […]

Dumb & Dumber: Continued Wind & Solar Obsession Defies All Logic & Reason

The renewable energy pit deepens, but there’s no indication the dolts in charge will ever stop digging. The, by now obvious, consequences of attempting to rely on sunshine and breezes include another annual power price increase of over 20% this month and routine power rationing by postcode. In response, there’s a growing groundswell of hostility […]

Subsidised Suicide: Unreliable Wind & Solar Guarantee Economic Self-Destruction

Intermittent wind and solar are a guarantee of rocketing power prices and rocketing power prices are a guarantee of economic destruction. An energy-hungry world will never satisfy its needs by pinning consumers’ hopes on the weather. But that’s the model that our political betters have been pushing over the last 20 years. How we landed […]

House of Cards: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Delivers Total Energy System Collapse

A house of cards has more structural integrity than a power generation system that depends on sunshine and breezes. Australia’s unfolding renewable energy debacle is a case in point. Total daily collapses solar output (aka ‘sunset’) and total collapses in wind power output (aka ‘calm weather’) are at the heart of a power pricing and […]

Wrecking Ball: Net Zero CO2 Emissions Targets Guarantee Economic Armageddon

Driven by climate alarmists and rent seekers ready to profit from the wind and solar subsidy scam, net zero carbon dioxide emissions targets are just the latest woke wheeze to grip our political betters. The idea that modern economies can function without the energy generated by fossil-fuels (whether consumed by motorcars or in power generation) […]

Nuclear Power: The Long-Term Solution to Australia’s Self-Inflicted Renewable Energy Calamity

  Thanks to an obsession with intermittent wind and solar, Australians face another summer of planned power rationing (aka ‘load shedding’) and the unplanned kind (aka ‘mass blackouts’). Cue the first long, hot spell in January, when power demand spikes as ACs get cranked into action to cool homes and businesses and refrigerated systems have […]

Wrecking Ball: Crippling Cost of Australia’s Obsession With Subsidised & Unreliable Wind & Solar

Australians are experiencing their first recession in nearly 30 years; its ruinous renewable energy policies are only adding insult to injury. Australia’s energy market is a shambles – thanks to the $60 billion squandered on intermittent wind and solar, it was already in the midst of a power pricing and supply calamity, with disastrous consequences […]

Down Tools: Australia’s Most Powerful Workers Union Rejects Unreliable Wind & Solar

Labor – aka the ‘Workers Party’ – remains determined to destroy whole industries and thousands of jobs with a 50% RET and a giant ‘carbon’ tax. Business and job destroying policies that helped it comfortably lose the ‘unloseable’ Federal election in May, and which its deluded front bench simply can’t bear to let go. Australian […]

Nuclear Power: Australia’s Happy to Sell it to the World – But Allergic to Using It

If you’re reading this in Australia, you’re doing so thanks to coal. You might be doing so thanks to nuclear power, but for the fact that the idiots that govern us banned it, years ago. Talk about wind and solar replacing conventional generation is just that. Talk. The dividend from Australia’s obsession with wind and […]
