Experts Hope Summer Blackouts Bring Sanity to Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle

  If Australia’s energy policy debate was a theatre production, it would be labelled ‘high farce’. Throwing $60 billion to the sun and the wind, destroying a grid which was renowned for not only its expanse, but its reliability and sending power prices from the very bottom of the league table, all the way to […]

Weather Dependent Wind Power: Leaves Hurricane Victims Powerless

Oh, the irony. In one breath we’re told that the climate is changing so rapidly – although, these days, most climate alarmists don’t seem prepared to lay a bet on whether things are getting hotter or colder – that carpeting the world in wind turbines and solar panels – which cultists believe will solve the […]

If CO2 Really is ‘Pollution’, There’s Only One Solution: Nuclear Power

In the climate alarmists’ worldwide crusade against carbon dioxide gas, only the most delusional still believe that wind and solar power add anything to their arsenal. One of America’s leading eco-warriors, Michael Shellenberger has turned on wind and solar with a passion, instead he’s now advocating for an all-atomic energy future, simply because the latter […]

Killing Australia’s Renewable Energy Target an Essential Economic Reboot

Combining climate with energy in a single policy setting is like combining a running child with super-sharp scissors: an unhealthy mix, prone to disaster. The concept of cutting CO2 emissions from a system which is built (and continues to rely) on coal-fired power generation, has the necessary and inevitable result of killing that system. Wind […]

The Nuclear Option: Atomic Solution to Australia’s Energy Crisis

In the blink of an eye, Australia’s media circus has finally woken up to the scale and scope of Australia’s self-inflicted power pricing and supply calamity. More ink has been spilt in the last few weeks on the subject than in the whole of the last decade. Wind power capital, South Australia’s blackouts and load […]

Malcolm, Josh Grow Up, Kill the Renewable Energy Target & Go Nuclear

When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. Australians are fast growing up to the fact that running a country on sunshine and breezes is so much childish nonsense. Like most childish […]

Last Man Standing: Nuclear Plants Power Texans During Deluge – Wind Turbines Automatically Shut Down During Hurricane Harvey

Texans have been in the news for all the wrong reasons, over the last week or so. Hurricane Harvey belted the Texan coast with 130 mph (209 kph) winds and delivered a deluge of biblical proportions. For some time now, Texas has been the pinup girl for American wind worshippers. With some 21,000 MW of […]
