Australian is set to cross the Rubicon: following the path to Nirvana promised by renewable energy zealots, means inevitable economic and social oblivion.
As the country continues pouring billions of dollars into the unreliables – wind and solar – power prices will continue to rocket out of control. And, even if an industrial or business user is prepared to pay through the nose to get electricity, the Energy Minister’s National Energy Guarantee provides no such thing.
When the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in, major users will simply be chopped from the grid – under a policy euphemistically known as ‘demand management’. The victims of demand management are referred to as ‘demand resources’.
For our international followers bemused by the above. Yes, this is Australia – erstwhile energy superpower – we’re talking about. Not Fidel’s Cuba or Stalin’s Russia.
As is often the case, only a few are equipped with the vision necessary to call the looming calamity for what it is.
One of those is former PM, Tony Abbott.
