No More Lip Service: The Time for Safe, Reliable & Affordable Nuclear is Right Now

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target directs more than $7 billion a year in subsidies to wind and solar and is doing precisely what it was designed to do: namely, destroying Australia’s reliable and affordable power supplies. At the political level, the scramble is now on to keep coal-fired power plants up and running, wait for it, […]

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. […]

Energy Embrace: Nuclear Power’s Inherent Reliability Key To Permanent Energy Security

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has focused minds on energy policy like nothing before. Europe’s self-defeating reliance on Russian oil and gas has exposed the so-called wind and solar ‘transition’ as a delusional farce. Adding chaotically intermittent wind and solar to a grid, while driving reliable and affordable coal-fired plants to the wall, inevitably requires oil […]

Nuclear Power Only Way to Meet Net-Zero Carbon Dioxide Emissions Targets

The climate alarmists and RE rent-seekers pushing net-zero carbon dioxide emissions targets hate nuclear power because it’s the only way of satisfying any such target. And at the heart of that proposition, is the fact that the true cost of wind and solar are truly out of this world. As a partial concession to their […]

Universal Self Harm: Rejecting Nuclear Power Poses Real Extinction Threat

The only thing worse than talking about a nuclear-powered future, is not talking about one. Australians watching power prices go through the roof and suffering through power rationing during summer – thanks to the hopeless intermittency of wind and solar – are finally getting the message. Given the unrelenting attack on reliable coal-fired power, the […]

Counting the Staggering Cost of Biden’s Offshore Wind Power Plans: Power Costs Set to Double

With Joe Biden and the Squad in the White House, American power consumers should strap themselves in for a very wild ride. Under his plans to spear or anchor 10,000 or more giant industrial wind turbines into the seafloor off America’s Atlantic coast, it’s not just the marine environment and fishermen who will suffer the […]

So Simple: Fixing Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Crisis Easy As One, Two, Three

Solving Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity means killing subsidies for wind and solar and kickstarting nuclear power, by removing the ban that prohibits it. As Rafe Champion details below, there are three easy steps that would resolve the current debacle: killing off the subsidies for intermittent power generation; adding a capacity market to the […]

Full-Steam Ahead: Nuclear Power’s Exponential Growth In Power Hungry China

No country serious about growth, industry and jobs is seriously relying on wind and solar power. China is building coal-fired power plants, hand over fist. And its efforts to build nuclear-powered plants are on the same trajectory. China Plans To Dominate The Global Nuclear Energy Push Oil Price Haley Zaremba 3 June 2020 China has […]

Nuclear’s New Age: Americans Lead Race to Build Small Modular Plants

Small modular nuclear reactors have been powering submarines and ships for generations. Now, enterprising Americans are seeking to bring them onshore, in order to tap an inexhaustible and affordable supply of electricity – available 24 x 7, whatever the weather or time-of-day. With a few rare exceptions, the climate cult hates the concept of nuclear […]

It’s Time: Fixing Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Calamity Starts By Removing Ban on Nuclear Power

In the midst of a RE-driven power pricing and supply calamity, the only thing worse than talking about nuclear energy, is not talking about nuclear energy. Australia has never had a nuclear power plant, and in 1998 placed an outright ban on nuclear power generation. Which seems a trifle odd, given Australia is the world’s […]
