Punishing Price: Australia’s Wind & Solar Obsession Means Power Prices Keep Rocketing

Like night follows day, adding chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid sends power prices into orbit. South Australians know it: they suffer the world’s highest power prices as a result of their 50% RET. Other Australian states are heading in the same direction. Victoria’s great wind rush has already sent prices rocketing: wholesale […]

Hypocrites Playground: Australian Renewable Energy Policy Driven By Virtue Signalling Halfwits

Reading this in Australia? Then you’re doing so, thanks to coal. You might be doing so thanks to nuclear power, if only the dimwits that profess to run this country hadn’t banned it. On any given day, between 70 and 80% of what flows through Australia’s Eastern Grid comes from coal-fired power plants. Of course, […]

Suicide Road: Australia’s Renewable Energy Crisis Threatens Thousands of Well-Paid Jobs

  An obsession with renewables sent power prices into orbit, destroying thousands of manufacturing jobs. Farmers irrigating crops and vines and milking cows, aquaculture outfits rearing abalone and finfish, mineral processors and miners are next. The relationship between having reliable and affordable electricity and sustaining profitable enterprise is entirely lost on Labor and the Greens. […]

Great ‘Green’ Jobs Hoax: The Truth Behind the Fake Wind Industry Jobs ‘Bonanza’

South Australia’s wind and solar obsession drove power prices through the roof and whole industries out of business. The state is an economic backwater, critically dependent upon Commonwealth defence spending to maintain a few meaningful jobs building frigates and submarines for the Navy. And South Australia isn’t the only place in the world where subsidised, […]

National Suicide: Australia’s Self-Inflicted Energy Crisis Driven by Wind & Solar Obsession

Australia’s energy policy reads like a National suicide note: power prices went from the lowest in the world to the highest, in little over a decade. Plotting the path to destruction is pretty easy: start by throwing $60 billion in subsidies at wind and large-scale solar, demonise cheap and reliable coal-fired power and put lunatics […]

Shorten’s Stranglehold: Labor’s 50% RET & ‘Carbon’ Tax Threatens Economic Annihilation

The prospect of a Shorten lead Labor government brings with it a 50% RET and a 45% emissions reduction target (an enormous ‘carbon’ tax by any other name). The consequence will be spiralling power prices and Soviet-era power rationing, whenever the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. As every South Australian knows, attempting to […]

Wicked Waste: Rocketing Prices & Blackouts Only ‘Dividend’ From $60bn in Subsidies to Wind & Solar

Setting fire to cash is one way of destroying value, throwing $billions in subsidies at intermittent wind and solar is just as effective. Chicago gangsters displayed their notorious net worth by stoking up their stogies with hundred-dollar bills. Easy come, easy go, as they say. So it is with the unreliables: wind and solar. Australian […]
