SA Premier Promises to Double Power Prices & Destroy Grid: 75% RET = 100% Lunacy

  Looking for an example of how to destroy an economy? Look no further than wind ‘powered’ South Australia. Where Australia’s other capital cities are growing so fast that they look like bursting, Adelaide’s population is shrinking; the best and brightest exit as fast their Commodores can carry them, leaving an ageing population and a […]

Australia’s New Senate Pushes for End to Wind Power Subsidies

*** The return of a Federal Coalition government has given the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers no respite: the ‘uncertainty’ they dread is still hanging over the terminal Large-Scale RET (the subsidy scheme on which the entire scam depends) like the Sword of Damocles.
