Blame Games: Public Being Played for Fools About Surging Power Prices by Wind & Solar Lobby

‘Support’ for subsidised wind and solar exists because Joe Public has absolutely no idea how power is generated or what it actually costs. In that respect, you’ve got to hand it to renewable energy rent seekers and their various propaganda wings: they’ve done a sterling job in taking a series of lies and myths and […]

Cost of Subsidised Wind & Solar Puts Power Out of Reach for America’s Working Poor

There will always be poverty, but rocketing power prices caused by subsidised wind and solar mean real punishment for the working poor. Yes, the poor will always be with us. And governments are meant to protect not punish them. However, that’s precisely the result of policies that favour meaningless power sources at the expense of […]

‘Green’ Vandalism: The Mounting Toll of Wind Industry’s Wave of Ecological Destruction

In 2018, it’s easier to find a deluded wind turbine hugger, than an old-fashioned tree hugger.

Notwithstanding that the occupants […]

Australia’s Renewable Policies an Economic Suicide Pact: Alan Finkel’s Report a ‘Death Wish’

The psychology […]

Henry Ergas: the CEFC Labor/Green folly in the extreme

The Clean Energy Finance Corporation is the brainchild of the Green-Labor alliance that left the Australian taxpayer as the unwilling underwriters of highly speculative wind power ventures that conventional banks won’t touch with a barge pole. The CEFC is an outfit living on borrowed time – the Coalition have sworn that it’ll be scrapped as […]
