Burchell Wilson: Sectors Should Join to Beat the RET

  Burchell Wilson holds the chief economist role at the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. He’s been on the front foot for some time now, seeking the abolition of the mandatory RET – which he sees as “corporate welfare on a massive scale”. Here’s Burchell unloading in today’s Australian.

PM’s Top Advisor – Maurice Newman – Hammers Palmer’s “Inconsistent” RET Plan

As the dust settles on the Palmer/Gore circus of the bizarre, it’s now evident that the PUP’s leader has pulled one the greatest confidence tricks since Paul Newman and Robert Redford joined forces in “The Sting”. As the hard-green-left stared in awe at their grand warming alarmist, Palmer slipped through the net unnoticed. It was […]

Claims Wind Power now “Competitive” with Conventional Generators About to be Tested

**** In Australia and the US, the wind industry and its parasites are making wild claims about being able to deliver power at prices equal to, or less than, the cost of conventional generation sources (see our post here). Those claims are about to be put to the test. In both Countries, legislators are ready […]

Exposing wind industry “vampires”: Alan Jones and James Delingpole

**** James Delingpole was interviewed by Alan Jones on 2GB  last week about the economic, environmental and social fraud of the wind industry.

Wind Farms: Nothing More than Power-Grid-Parasites

**** Apart from the insane cost of propping up near bankrupt wind power outfits – like Infigen – with $ billions in subsidies in the form of the REC Tax/Subsidy – the wind industry gets to “free-ride” on the Australian electricity consumer in at least 2 ways. The first is getting preferential distribution of the […]

RET Review Panel says: Now THAT’S a Submission

In the week just gone, eco-fascist blogs like yes2ruining-us and ruin-economy have crowed about their team sending 23 million submissions to the RET Review Panel (okay, so we’ve exaggerated a bit, but so did they – and you get our point). Likewise, the Twitter-sphere has seen a flurry of self-congratulatory messages from the lunatic fringe […]

Infigen Signals Its Own Demise – as the RET Review Panel Gets to Work

**** Infigen is an all-wind-power-outfit that used to be called Babcock and Brown – which collapsed spectacularly in 2009 – taking $10 billion of investors’ and creditors’ money with it on the way out (see this story). The way things are headed – get set for a replay. Infigen is bleeding cash (it backed up […]

Australian Wind Industry’s House of Cards Collapsing

**** With Australia’s wind industry in its death throes, STT has already given fair warning to bankers, investors and shareholders with so much as a cent in wind power companies to grab their cash and get out as fast they can (see our post here). All-wind-power-outfits – like our favourite whipping boys, Infigen – are […]

Dick Warburton: is the RET worth the Pain inflicted on Families & Business?

As STT followers know, the RET Review Panel is headed up by Dick Warburton – a man who’s acutely aware of the pain being inflicted on Australian families and business by the mandatory Renewable Energy Target. Since Dick was appointed to conduct the first thorough cost/benefit analysis of the mandatory RET ever undertaken, the wind […]

Time to let the RET Review Panel Know What You Think

As STT’s loyal followers know, Australia is all set to decouple itself from the international economic suicide pact entered when gullible and unwitting governments all over the world signed up to ludicrously expensive and utterly pointless renewables policies. The Coalition are itching to scrap the Renewable Energy Target – and the RET Review Panel appear […]
