The GreenLeft ACT Govt has a “90 per cent target for the use of renewable energy (electricity) in the ACT by 2020.” – so we can expect a welter of waste in years to come. And it is ironic that while Spain has been burnt by over installing PV solar schemes – a Spanish company [...]
The SA State Govt elected with only 47% of the two party preferred vote due to the gerrymandered electoral system – now crows about adopting a target of 50% renewable energy by 2025. SA has gone heavily into wind power and the only way this 2015 target is even remotely possible is on the back [...]
ABC headlines – Silex shelves major solar power plant on RET uncertainty – there is no pretty way to do it – these wasteful boondoggles must be shut down.
So at a time of “…unprecedented oversupply…” our power bills are booming. How unwise we have been to elect politicians who have brought us to this – where efficient and cheap 24/7 coal fired electricity generators are coming under financial pressure from taxpayer subsidised wind and solar which only generate expensive and erratic electricity when [...]
Reuters reports – Future grows darker for solar energy growth in Japan On the second anniversary of a scheme aimed at boosting Japan’s renewable energy after the Fukushima crisis, its powerful industry ministry is taking steps critics say will choke off solar investment and pave the way for a return to nuclear.

A welcome step but this has been such a drama and with so many amendments I think it will be some time before we can weigh the net effect against the remaining web of GreenLeft hangovers – Clean Energy Finance Corporation – Renewable Energy Target – Climate Change Authority – that the Govt wants to [...]
Revealing take here by “Our ABC” giving free publicity for advocates of the renewables sector. Qld electricity providers trying to block solar from grid, lobby group says Mainstream electricity consumers have allowed too much harm already to our electricity grids from the variable generation of near useless but expensive Green boutique wind and solar.
Watching TV news last night at the Shut-Down-Railway Closed-Wheat-Silo Empty-Shops-Town Motel in mid New South Wales it was fascinating to see the confusion in the knee-jerk GreenLeft main-stream-media in Australia as ex USA Vice President Al Gore stood alongside our MP Clive Palmer who was proposing to axe the Carbon Tax. ABC News carries the [...]
Signs of a surprising conflict within cabinet that took a while to surface – Greg Hunt kept Prime Minister in dark on solar policy – I expected cabinet members to be better tuned in to Govt plans than this. The adults in charge could be looking at the ever growing cost of the renewable energy [...]
