Bill Shorten’s ALP: Loves Subsidising Chaotic Wind & Solar/Hates Real Industry & Real Jobs

  Australia was once an energy superpower, supporting mining, mineral processing, manufacturing and energy-intensive agriculture (think irrigators, dairies, aquaculture and horticulture). Pretty soon, if Bill Shorten’s Labor Party gets anywhere near the controls, power prices will be driven to astronomical levels and those industries driven out of existence. Hundreds of thousands of well-paid, meaningful jobs […]

Labor’s Renewables Insanity Hits New High With Bill Shorten’s Million Battery Brain Fart

  Despite the hype from RE zealots, the chaotic and occasional delivery of wind and solar won’t be cured with batteries, large or small.

Aboriginal Leader Warren Mundine Tells Australians to Grow Up and Go Nuclear

*** STT tends to leave the debate about global warming or ‘climate change’ to others. However, STT has always thought that if man-made CO2 emissions really were destroying the planet, then sensible governments would have moved to build nuclear power plants from the moment the Chicken Littles started wailing about the heavens collapsing. The French generate […]
