Déjà vu All Over Again: Liberal PM Determined to Squander $10 Billion on Pumped Hydro White Elephant

  Australia’s obsession with hopelessly intermittent wind and solar has rendered its power supply both unreliable and unaffordable: it’s time to stop digging. Except, on both sides of the political divide, it seems the obsession is one without reason or respite. Labor’s opposition leader, Bill Shorten is determined to destroy Australia’s economic prosperity – literally […]

Renewables Rejected: 80% of Australian Households Want Reliable & Affordable Power

For Australian households and businesses being crushed by out-of-control power prices the Paris Climate Agreement is a maniac’s suicide note. With nothing else to justify the $60 billion being thrown in subsidies at chaotically intermittent wind and solar, renewable energy rent seekers are clinging to the notion that the deal done in the City of Light will […]

Energy Minister – Angus Taylor: Subsidised Wind & Solar ‘Virtue Signalling with Other People’s Money’

  The world was overrun by insanely costly and chaotically intermittent wind and solar, thanks to an endless stream of other people’s money. Preaching the gospel about nature’s wonder fuels, isn’t simply about moral posturing and virtue signalling. It’s also about separating taxpayers and power consumers from their hard-earned: over the life of the Federal […]

Mortal Enemy: New Energy Minister – Angus Taylor Spells Doom for Subsidised Wind & Solar

  The wind and solar industries are built on lies and fuelled by subsidies. Angus Taylor is alive to the former and focused on ending the latter. Barely a month into the job, for some reason, the very mention of Angus Taylor sends renewable energy rent seekers into a state of apoplexy. One reason could […]

Time to Die: New PM Must Bury Turnbull’s $10bn Snowy 2.0 Pumped Hydro Boondoggle

Wind and large-scale solar are doomed, but the saviour is said to be pumped hydro; paid for, of course, with other people’s money. Touted by ex-PM Malcom Turnbull and his hapless sidekick, Josh Frydenberg as the Nation’s mega-battery, the heavily-hyped Snowy 2.0 pumped hydro scheme (shelved in the 1970s because it was uneconomic then) has […]

Renewable Energy Zealots Furious: Australia’s New PM Determined to Slash Wind & Solar Subsidies and Exit Paris Climate ‘Deal’

Ever rocketing power prices were what scuttled Australia’s suicidal renewable energy policies. The National Energy Guarantee was an effort to expand (exponentially) and extend (indefinitely) Australia’s already crippling Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target. A mixture of hubris and overreach by those championing the NEG – which included the ex-PM (we seem to recall his name was […]

New PM’s Top Priority: Morrison Must Slash Subsidies to Intermittent Wind & Solar, Right Now

  New PM, Scott Morrison must slash subsidies to renewables now to tame the 40 rebel MPs who crushed wind and solar obsessed Malcolm Turnbull. The 40 MPs who forced Turnbull to walk the plank, will do exactly the same to Morrison if he fails to arrest Australia’s out-of-control energy crisis, starting right now. Morrison’s […]
