Lunatic’s Paradise: SA Voters’ Last Chance to Curb Renewable Energy Insanity

  South Australia is renowned as a renewable energy ‘superpower’, which has left it with the highest retail power prices in the world and the most unreliable grid on the planet (Burkina Faso, Cuba and North Korea aside). As this post goes to air, officials will soon start counting votes in SA’s State election. Pundits […]

Reaping the Whirlwind: Insane Cost of Renewables Destroying Jobs & Australia’s Economic Prosperity

Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity has a single, proximate cause: massively subsidised, intermittent, unreliable wind and solar power. The relationship is obvious to all but the deliberately obtuse and the rent-seekers that profit from it. Another obvious relationship is how Australia’s enviable wealth and economic prosperity depended upon reliable and affordable power supplies. Now […]

Australia’s Renewable Energy Experiment a Monumental Disaster

Experience is the most expensive teacher there is. For those gifted with our good friends, logic and reason, the principal lesson learned from failures suffered is to avoid their repetition at all costs.

Australia’s Renewable Energy Disaster Puts Lives at Mortal Risk: More Powerless Pensioners Will Freeze to Death this Winter

Craig Kelly is one of the few Liberals with the courage to tell the truth; and to do so publicly, at the risk of bringing his own political future undone. In the article below, Craig states nothing more than the bleeding obvious. The cost of subsidising renewables is born disproportionately by the poorest and most […]
