Atomic Reaction: Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle Prompts Push for Nuclear Power

  If CO2 gas really is the existential threat it’s made out to be, then nuclear power is the only solution. That’s if you want to provide reliable and affordable electricity to all comers, rather than destroying businesses and punishing households? In 2018, with debacles like wind ‘powered’ Germany, South Australia and Victoria on show, for […]

Power Vacuum: Australia’s Energy Crisis Screaming Out for Nuclear Option

Crippled by its suicidal obsession with wind and solar, Australia is screaming out for politicians with the wit and temerity to push the nuclear option.

America’s Top Green – Michael Shellenberger – Pushes Nuclear Future & Calls Wind & Solar ‘The Worst for the Enviroment’

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. Australia is the only G20 country with a legislated prohibition on nuclear power generation. However, the combination of the Federal government’s new National Energy Guarantee (NEG) and the associated Emissions Obligation […]

PM’s Reliable Power Play Spells Disaster for Unreliable & Intermittent Wind Power

  Politics is a cruel caper, at the best of times. And, in Australia, power politics is merciless.

The disaster is largely down to distortions caused by […]

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’.
