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 […]

Victoria Erupts: Furious Mob Rejects Premier Dan Andrew’s Insane Wind Power Push

  Victoria’s Premier might think he’s on a winner with his gargantuan push for wind and solar in his State, but his constituents think otherwise.
