Renewable Power Australia – $60 Million For Each Solar Job

November 17, 2017 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ The Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palasczcuk, was promoting green energy at the Clare Solar Farm. Resources Minister Matt Canavan calculates the astonishing waste: “The Clare Solar Farm stands to get something like $340 million in subsidies over the next 13 years  for 5 jobs! That works out at $60 million a job.” […]

Renewable Power Australia – Paying A Saudi Billionaire To Wreck On Electricity

September 19, 2017 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Let me demonstrate how our politicians are spending billions to give you more expensive and unreliable electricity just to pretend to stop global warming that they pretend is catastrophic. We are paying a Saudi billionaire $300 million to pretend to make a difference to the climate by ruining our electricity supply: […]

Rooftop Solar Power Australia – $14 Billion For Richer Australians To Pretend They’re Saving The Planet

May 25, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Poorer Australians are giving richer Australians $14 billion to subsidise a warm inner glow – and feed a fantasy that they are saving the planet: The costs of programs to encourage the installation of rooftop solar systems have outweighed the benefits by $9 billion and will result in a $14bn subsidy […]

Solar Power Australia – The Moree Solar Plant

June 27, 2011 by


Two weeks ago, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced plans for two new Solar Power Plants in Australia. In a photo op complete with hard hat and darkened glasses to protect from the bright light, she posed for photographs at a place where all that exists now is the site for the as yet unconstructed […]

Solar panels are not Shakespeare, but just as make-believe

November 27, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt It’s the latest in performance art – posing as a planet saver: The stages of the Sydney Theatre Company will be illuminated by the biggest star of them all – the sun. An array of 1906 solar panels on the roof of The Wharf on Sydney Harbour were switched on by the […]

Hillary and Julia’s Big Solar Adventure

November 10, 2010 by


HILLARY AND JULIA PROPOSE TO FIND A WAY TO MAKE THE SUN SHINE AT NIGHT That may seem a little facetious, but in effect, it is what they are both proposing. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently had a short 4 day visit to Australia. Everybody in creation was falling over each other to be […]

One New Nuclear Power Plant – Oh Wow!

February 17, 2010 by


Yesterday, President Obama announced funding loans for the construction of a new Nuclear Power Plant in Georgia. This will be the first Nuclear Power Plant built in almost thirty years. One report of this story is at this link. The new plant will cost in the vicinity of $8 Billion. The major concentration was on […]

Florida’s New Solar Power Plant

November 16, 2009 by


Not long after President Obama took office, he made the bold statement that he wanted to double the generation of renewable power during his first term. It seems a fairly comfortable thing to say, because, starting from so low a base, then doubling that might actually seem achievable. However, the reality is that these plants […]

The Limitations Of Renewable Power (Part 2)

August 26, 2009 by


SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER. Again, my task is to keep this simple. Unlike other processes, where a rotating magnetic field induces a current flow in large numbers of wires, this solar photovoltaic process is completely different. The process (again, very simplified) is that sunlight shining on the solar cell induces a flow of electrons (current flow) […]
