  1. Here is yet another example on why billionaires' are jumping on the renewables gravy train: Saudi solar tycoon’s $300m handout
  2. How Austerity Works: a simple numerical example that any intelligent person can understand
  3. I bet these subsidies are not factored into the record high cost of electricity paid by consumers for renewables AGL’s $500m solar boost as it shuts coal station
  4. Four Corners is covering the corruption in the Goldcoast tomorrow.
  5. Fortunately, a happy ending Eddie Obeid loses appeal over misconduct conviction Now, the law needs to get Tripodi on the hook.
  6. A lot of those subsidies are to encourage exploration. I actually agree with this statement: The monies are not paid at the production stage, where the companies instead pay royalties (which IMO should be higher).
  7. The clean coal technology is supposed to reduce emissions. But I think gas is cleaner and Australia has no shortage of it, providing it is not all exported.
  8. And this is coming from a greenie! I personally have problems with nuclear as when sh!t happens, you would not want to be around! Same with fracking for gas as it too often seems to impact the local water supply. Nuclear the ‘only option’ to replace coal and gas: Michael Shellenberger
  9. None so blind as those who will not see
  10. World building new coal plants faster than it shuts them
  11. Subsidies and tariffs were invented to protect infant industries and not to remain in place ad infinitum as has been the case with solar. After a while, the industry is expected to stand on its own feet and prove its worth when competing. The taxpayers teat is not there to be milked endlessly to protect vested interests.
