First it was wind, then it was solar…

First it was wind, then it was solar. Now they’ve put the two together and it’s hydrogen. They’re trying to skin us alive forever. – Professor Ian Plimer

Two weeks ago, Energy Minister Angus Taylor announced he’ll subsidise our coal-fired power plants to offset the unreliability of our already subsidised wind turbines and solar panels – a policy “worthy of a Yes Minister show or Monty Python skit” as described by the National Civic Council.

Now, Minister Taylor has knocked back an Australian nuclear energy industry in favour of hydrogen fuel because “hydrogen can do things that nuclear could never do anyway. It’s not only a source of energy, it’s a feedstock”.

Really, Angus? Continue reading “First it was wind, then it was solar…”

Science and Anti-Science: the Net Zero debate

By G M Derrick

The Net Zero steamrollers are now flattening all in their path, driven by global business and financial interests, the Business Council of Australia, a future king of England and compliant media groups that include the unlikely bedfellows of the ABC and now News Corp.

But knowledge of actual science?? None really. Continue reading “Science and Anti-Science: the Net Zero debate”

Time for Truth-Telling in Glasgow

By Viv Forbes

For 26 long years the UN and their tame media have promoted their expensive annual climate carnivals. This month they will flock to Glasgow for COP 26 but they will not arrive on Shetland ponies, penny farthings or sailing boats – hydro-carbon energy will get most of them there and keep them warm and well fed.

These jamborees are designed to spread climate lies and green energy propaganda. Continue reading “Time for Truth-Telling in Glasgow”

Energy Destruction and Waste

by Alan Moran

Australia is spending some $19 billion a year in subsidies and subsidised private investment in wind and solar. This is close to 15 per cent of the private non-dwelling investment. Not only is this gross waste but it also has a negative effect of undermining the efficient energy supply we once had. More subsidies and assistance are piled on almost daily.

We have become a subsidy nation with politicians intent on fulfilling a death wish.
