The billion dollar wind industry should learn to stand on its own two feet and not raise electricity prices to enable it to compete with cheap, reliable, efficient fossil fuels.
Australia’s once cheap energy was its greatest competitive asset. Now with Carbon taxes, green energy RET and green subsidies, manufacturing and other energy intensive industries have moved offshore.
Time to wind back the rent-seeking green (unreliable) energy scam.
Well done Tony Abbot and the conservative Australian Govt – genuinely looking out for Australian job and prosperity interests.
Guest essay by Eric Worrall
h/t Breitbart – Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, whose recently appointed a commissioner to handle complaints about wind farms, has just instructed the government Clean Energy Corporation not to subsidise any new wind farm projects.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald;
Tony Abbott has dramatically escalated his war on wind power, creating a new cabinet split and provoking a warning he is putting international investment at risk.
Fairfax Media can reveal the government has ordered the $10 billion Clean Energy Finance Corporation not to make any new investments in wind power projects.
Treasurer Joe Hockey and Finance Minister Mathias Cormann have issued the so-called green bank with a directive to change its investment mandate, prohibiting new wind funding.

It’s funny how climate “denier” número uno ~ Steven Goddard, has for as many years as I’ve followed, been spot-on with climate forecasting. As opposed to the alarmist experts who continue to deceive the public, and whose alarmist forecasts are continually battered by observations. Yet those same alarmists continue to be fed by taxpayers grants (govt money) and Tony gets zip. The irony of the truth-h/teller!
Two thirds of the way through the Arctic melt season, Arctic sea ice extent is second highest since 2005.
Greenland surface mass balance is just below the 1990-2013 mean.
Colder air is forecast to start settling in over the Arctic in a few days.
Experts predicted an ice-free Arctic this summer. They have no idea what they are talking about, but they are officially sanctioned by the White House to tell whatever lies are necessary to push the president’s political agenda.
Great post. Sums up the climate scam in 3 paragraphs. Nice.
Atmospheric CO2 has been increasing, and atmospheric temperatures haven’t. The global warming scam is dead scientifically, and is now maintained 100% by corruption and perversion of science.
The scam is now very heavily dependent on fraudsters at NASA and NOAA tampering with surface data, to create the appearance of non-existent warming. The most disgusting and lowest form of scientific behavior.
If the planet was actually warming, sea ice would be disappearing – but it isn’t. Earth has the same amount of sea ice as it had 35 years ago.
