Renewable Energy Wars: MP’s Push For Reliable Coal-Fired Power Means D-Day for Wind & Solar

Doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results is insanity. And, so it is, with a gaggle of Australian MPs still wedded to the delusion that you can run an economy on sunshine and breezes.

South Australia set the benchmark: with a grid on the brink of collapseand the world’s highest power prices, you’d be hard pressed to ignore the consequences that played out in that little economic backwater as a result of its wind and solar obsession. But, plenty still do.

The madness of herds; collective insanity, call it what you will. Unless somebody gets a grip, very soon the disaster that struck South Australia will spread like the kind of contagious disease that wipes out whole African nations. Except the symptoms will exhibit as a continuation of escalating power prices, already punishing pensioners and pressing businesses to the brink of insolvency.

Slowly, but surely, a sensible few are starting to grapple with the scale and depth of Australia’s self-inflicted power pricing and supply calamity.

A number of National MPs are demanding the immediate construction of coal-fired power plants. And former PM, Tony Abbott is right alongside them, calling the insanity for what it is.
