Anti-Nuclear Knuckleheads: Time to Scrap Australia’s Idiotic Ban on Nuclear Power Plants

  Australia holds the world’s largest uranium reserves and, despite its shifting policy of limiting the number of mines and states that have banned them, is the world’s third-largest uranium exporter. That Australia, among the world’s largest uranium exporters, doesn’t rely on nuclear power astonishes those from the 30 countries where you’ll find nearly 450 nuclear reactors currently operating – […]

Quiet Achiever: While PM Keeps Talking About Gas, Coal Just Keeps On Powering Australia

The Federal Coalition’s ‘plan’ to power Australia with gas-fired power plants it has yet to build, with gas supplies it does not have sounds more like palliative care than a cure for its self-inflicted power pricing and supply calamity. Having wrecked our once reliable grid by subsidising chaotically intermittent wind and solar, it seems it’s […]

Ships Ahoy! Giant Diesel-Fuelled Ship Engines ‘Solution’ For Australia’s Renewable Energy Crisis

  Australia’s obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar has left it with a power pricing and supply calamity. It’s a disaster that was as predictable, as it was avoidable. To date, the Federal Liberal/National Coalition’s feeble attempts to resolve it provide a study in practised inertia, mixed with a series of pointless Band-Aid ‘solutions’. […]

Déjà vu: ‘New’ Coalition Power Policy Means Australia’s Energy Crisis Continues Unabated

  Throttled by Draconian lockdowns, the Australian economy is on life support, the only hope of resuscitating it is by restoring reliable and affordable power, to all and sundry. Last week the Federal Liberal/National Coalition announced what purported to be a cure, but, in reality, it’s more like palliative care. PM, Scott Morrison and his […]

Endless $Billions: Counting The Hidden Cost of Renewables on Electricity Prices

Uncovering the true costs of intermittent wind and solar is like playing hide and seek while blindfolded. In Australia, the subsidies doled out under the Federal Government’s Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target and its domestic cousin, the Small-Scale Renewable Energy Scheme, that covers rooftop solar and other household rorts, adds at least $4 billion a year […]

Barking Mad: Australia’s Ludicrous Plan To Send Subsidised Solar Power 3,350KM From Darwin to Singapore

Australia’s energy policy is a joke, but a plan to send subsidised solar power to Singapore proves lunatics really have taken over the asylum. The Morrison Federal government has given major project status to a 10GW undersea cable to run from Darwin to Singapore over a distance of at least 3,350 km. The cost of […]

Wrecking Ball: Crippling Cost of Australia’s Obsession With Subsidised & Unreliable Wind & Solar

Australians are experiencing their first recession in nearly 30 years; its ruinous renewable energy policies are only adding insult to injury. Australia’s energy market is a shambles – thanks to the $60 billion squandered on intermittent wind and solar, it was already in the midst of a power pricing and supply calamity, with disastrous consequences […]

Path to Recovery: Scrapping Subsidies to Never-Reliable Wind & Solar Key to Economic Revival

There’s a reason that South Australians suffer the world’s highest retail power prices; and that’s because it’s the world’s wind and solar capital. It is an economic backwater, with Australia’s highest rate of unemployment, which can only worsen after the Draconian COVID-19 lockdowns imposed on commercial and social life destroyed thousands of jobs, many of […]

Start Me Up: Cheap & Reliable Coal-Fired Power Only Path to Economic Recovery

  The Australian businesses under threat from insane renewable energy policies and rocketing power prices, have been finished off by government enforced lockdowns. With the Federal government outlining a plan to, ever so gradually, lift its COVID-19 restrictions on business, life and liberty, talk has inevitably turned to resuscitating an economy on life support. Earlier during […]

Australia’s Energy Crisis: High Time For Government to Grow Up and Back Nuclear Powered Future

  You’ve probably reached peak stupid when a troubled teenage girl gets to berate adults about global economic and energy policy, and a purportedly educated class sit awestruck, applauding in earnest. Greta the Fretter was front and centre in the (predictable) climate cult hysteria about the bushfires that have swept Australia this summer. Amongst renewable […]
