‘Green’ Crusade Backfires: Subsidised Wind & Solar Snubbed as Australian Voters Reject Climate ‘Crisis’ Hysteria

  Pundits reckoned that Australians would vote in droves for more windmills and solar panels to prevent droughts and save us from a climate ‘emergency’. That was then, this is now. With the majority of voters flogging the Green-Labor Alliance – and its wrecking-ball climate/energy policy – it’s apparent that Australians are no fools. At […]

Blown Away: Australians Reject Labor’s 50% RET & Plans for Giant Wind & Solar Roll-out

  Bill Shorten’ 45% CO2 emissions reduction target and his 50% Renewable Energy Target was meant to deliver a Labor landslide. It didn’t. Bill Shorten and his acolytes believed that Australian voters would flock to his grand – ‘save the planet’ – plans for sunshine and breezes. Their propaganda wing, GetUp! made it seem like […]

Government Surrenders: PM Hoists White Flag on Australia’s Self-inflicted Renewable Energy Crisis

  With Labor threatening a 50% RET and a giant carbon tax, Australian industry is ready to pack up stumps and leave. But, instead of fighting for those industries, businesses and the jobs they create, the Liberal/National Coalition has thrown in the towel. STT had high hopes for the Energy Minister, Angus Taylor when he […]

Sanity Shutdown: Staggering Cost of Australia’s Renewable Energy Policy

The economic destruction wreaked by Australia’s obsession with intermittent wind and solar was perfectly predictable and perfectly avoidable. Power prices have rocketed out-of-control, energy hungry industries are chopped from the grid whenever sunset and/or calm weather coincides with heavy demand during very hot or very cold weather. The boffins in charge of this calamity cynically […]

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 […]

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 […]

RE Contagion: Labor Promises to Take South Australia’s Energy Debacle Nationwide with 50% RET

That adding intermittent wind and solar sends power prices into orbit is a night follows day, kind of thing. Despite some recent propaganda efforts suggesting that South Australians are currently enjoying 1970s power prices, Australia’s renewable energy capital still pays the world’s highest power prices – thanks to its ludicrous 50% Renewable Energy Target. SA’s […]
