Australia Closes Coal-Fired Power Plants: Hospitals Forced to Cut Power Use & Power Prices Rocket

Australia’s ‘inevitable transition’ to nature’s ‘wonder fuels’, the wind and sun is looking more like a transition to the Third World. Rocketing power prices have seen tens of thousands of Australian families cut from the grid, no longer able to afford power at all. And power ‘rationing’ of the kind one might expect in North […]

Wind Turbine Noise Makes Life a Living Hell for Neighbours: Michigan Farmers Driven From Homes

  Wherever the wind industry expands, so too a visceral hatred among those forced to suffer incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infra-sound. No manner of cynical finessing can excuse what’s done by this subsidy-soaked so-called ‘industry’. Turning peaceful and idyllic rural communities into industrial wastelands sticks in the craw of even life’s most grizzled […]

Another Wind Power FAIL: Big Winter Blow Leaves 75,000 UK Homes Powerless

It’s this simple, really: when your power supply depends wholly upon the weather, expect it to vary entirely at the whims of Mother Nature. Last year we brought you the story of what happened in Texas when Hurricane Harvey belted the Lone Star state: Last Man Standing: Nuclear Plants Power Texans During Deluge – Wind Turbines […]

Risible Renewables: 30 Years and $Trillions in Subsidies – Wind & Solar’s Total Output Less than 1% of World Energy Demand

South Australians, with a deluded and dangerous Labor Premier, utterly obsessed with […]

Ian Plimer: How Australia’s Renewables Obsession Destroyed its Reliable & Cheap Power Supply

Australia’s suicidal renewable energy policies have all but destroyed what was once an energy superpower. Rocketing power prices and a grid on the brink of collapse are the consequence of an obsessive desire to run an entire country on sunshine and breezes. Lunacy doesn’t cover it. How we got there and what it means to […]

Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Calamity Proves Promise of Cheap Renewable Power a Cruel Hoax

Chasing the dream of cheap and reliable ‘clean/green’ wind and solar power has turned out more like an LSD-fuelled Unicorn hunt. Any idiot can make a promise, but delivering is altogether another matter. The wind industry and its few remaining champions keep telling us that, one day soon, magical forces will align and power prices […]

Wind Industry Salvage Mission: Turnbull Government Set to Squander $10 billion on Snowy 2.0 Pumped Hydro Boondoggle

  The patrician and aloof Malcolm Turnbull continues as a parody of a PM. At a point when most political leaders would be reacting to the wholesale destruction of businesses and whole industries (along with tens of thousands of meaningful jobs) caused by spiralling power costs, Turnbull literally headed for the hills to pump his […]
