RE Madness Must End Now: Tony Abbott Calls Time-Out on Economy-Wrecking Paris Climate ‘Deal’

There are good deals, there are bad deals and there are disastrous deals. For Australia the Paris Climate ‘deal’ is a monstrous disaster. The realisation that an energy superpower found itself enmeshed in what is – for all intents and purposes – an international suicide pact, has just hit home. The only justification (if it […]

Eco-Irony: Power-Starved Australian Households Switch to Scavenged Firewood to Beat Winter’s Chill

Let eco-zealots get control of your country’s power generation system, and rocketing power prices follow as night follows day. Those countries whose energy policies have been hijacked by renewable energy rent seekers – pumping heavily subsidised, utterly unreliable and completely chaotic wind and solar – have watched their power prices double in a veritable heartbeat. […]

Renewables Reckoning: Close Coal-Fired Power Plants & Watch Power Prices Rocket

Adding massively subsidised and chaotically delivered wind and solar to a power grid is guaranteed to send power prices through the roof (see above). Witness a little economic backwater called South Australia which – due to a maniacal obsession with sunshine and breezes – suffers the highest retail power prices in the world, routine load […]

Monash Forum’s Renewables Revolt: Australian MPs Demand End to Subsidised Wind & Solar

Common sense rarely needs an advocate. But when the subject is Australian energy policy, common sense left the building years ago. Now, it’s returned with a vengeance: 30 Nationals and Liberal MPs have formed the Monash Forum, to demand an end to the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time: massively subsidised, utterly unreliable […]

Coal-Fired Future: Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle Puts Fossil Fuels Front & Centre

South Australia’s embattled power consumers determined to ditch Jay Weatherill’s Labor government and its maniacal 75% RET. While what follows is a whole lot less certain than outright immediate economic self-annihilation, South Australians aren’t out of the woods, just yet. Indeed, nothing much has really changed, at all. The weather is still the key determinant […]

‘Green’ Energy Fail: How Ideology Destroyed Australia’s Once Cheap & Reliable Power Supply

Wrecking a power market and a power grid is a piece of cake: just add massively subsidised, unreliable and intermittent wind and solar. Ontario, Denmark and Germany provide pertinent examples. But there’s none better than Australia, particularly because it’s blessed with abundant coal, gas and uranium reserves, the envy of the World. Hijacked by renewables […]

Blackout Nation: Insane ‘Reliance’ on Wind Power Delivers Pure Power Chaos

Alcoholics call it a ‘moment of clarity’. In wind powered South Australia and Victoria, hitherto fans of renewables call it a ‘mass blackout’. In 1919, after Engineer/Soldier, Sir John Monash returned to his home town of Melbourne from the Western Front, to a hero’s welcome, he set about establishing an electricity grid that would serve […]
