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 […]

Giant Renewable Energy Debacle Demands Even Bigger Lies: Boffins Claim More Wind & Solar Guaranteed to Cut Power Prices

Efforts by RE zealots to maintain control of Australia’s energy policy have turned to high farce. Working on the adage that the bigger the lie, the more often that it’s told, the more people are likely to believe it, the AEMO’s Audrey Zibelman and the Energy Security Board’s Kerry Schott have decided to take reality, […]

Bureaucrats Backtrack: ‘Transition’ to Wind & Solar Now Deemed Impossible Before 2040

Suddenly, came the realisation that subsidised wind and solar will never replace Australia’s coal-fired power plants. The idea that they ever could was, of course, a perfect nonsense. Talk about being ‘technology agnostic’, ‘inevitable transitions’ and wind and solar actually ‘competing’ with coal, gas and hydro, say more about the protagonist’s state of mental health, […]

If Australians Want Reliable & Affordable Electricity: It’s Coal-Fired Power or Nothing

The debate surrounding Australia’s energy crisis is occupied by two camps: deluded zealots and pragmatic realists. STT sits with the latter: we couldn’t care less whether electricity was generated using doggie doo, provided it’s available and affordable, to all-comers. Australia, as the world’s third largest exporter of uranium, ought to be throwing its money and […]

Liberal MPs Demand End to Australia’s Economy-Wrecking, Hidden $60bn Federal Power Tax

Already suffering the world’s highest power prices, Australian power consumers have watched prices jump by anything up to 28% in 12 months. The greatest increases occurred, funnily enough, in the all-renewable obsessed Australia Capital Territory, home to the Australian Federal Parliament in Canberra. The ACT entered power purchase agreements to buy wind power generated (occasionally) […]

No Way Back From RE Disaster: Energy Minister Abandons Australia’s Power Consumers

What passes for political leadership in this country is engaged in a wind and solar-fuelled economic suicide mission. Subsidies to grid wrecking wind and solar (when soft loans, green schemes and taxpayer handouts are added) are pushing $5 billion a year, punishing households and businesses alike. As wind and solar power capacity increases, power prices […]

Wind Power Output Collapses Send Power Prices into Orbit: The World’s Biggest Joke Just Got Serious

Intermittent wind and solar are a natural guarantee of grid chaos and rocketing power prices. The debacle that started in the renewable energy ‘superpower’, also known as South Australia has broken the border and is spreading fast. New South Wales is now being treated to a lesson on how increasing reliance on the ‘unreliables’ inevitably […]
