Postcards from The Edge: The Naked Insanity of Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle

  Australia’s self-inflicted energy crisis is an IQ test for anyone game to take the challenge. Published every day, the results provide a permanent record for future generations, enabling them to praise the scholars and punish the dunces. Over the last few weeks, Australia’s Federal Treasurer, Scott Morrison entered the contest and earned a spectacular […]

Battlelines Drawn: Monash Forum Pushes for Reliable & Affordable Coal-Fired Future

  A mere trickle of opposition to subsidised wind and solar power has just turned into a flood of biblical proportions. A group of National and Liberal MPs have declared war on renewable subsidies. Calling in aid the legacy of Australia’s greatest Soldier, Sir John Monash, the Monash Forum has gathered 30 Federal MPs to […]

Want Rocketing Power Prices & Grid Chaos? Wind Power’s Your Answer

Deranged and delusional, those that promote wind power come up with all manner of falsehoods to protect their beloved. One of the latest is that conventional generators, namely coal-fired power plants ‘fail all the time’. When presented with images like the one above from Aneroid Energy – depicting the output every wind turbine connected to […]

Renewables Hoax: Australia’s Biggest Retailer, AGL ‘Gets Out of Coal’ By Spending $200m Fixing Coal-Fired Power Plant

Promoters of wind and solar, fixated on the hundreds of $billions thrown at […]

‘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 […]

‘Saving’ the Planet from CO2 Gas Means Cheap & Reliable Nuclear Power or Nothing

Anyone still banging on about CO2 emissions in the electricity generation sector, ought to be banging on about nothing other than nuclear power. Nuclear power is the only, stand-alone generation source that can deliver reliable, affordable power without generating CO2 gas, in the process. The fact that politicians in this Country talk about anything but […]

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 […]
