Aussie PM Tony Abbott Cancels All Government Wind Farm Subsidies

Australia has slammed the door shut on any new government-funded investment in renewable energy schemes as Prime Minister Tony Abbott extends his “war on wind power”.

In doing so Mr Abbott has sent a clear message to the mendicant green renewable energy sector that there will be no more cheap state-supplied financing for its projects.


Imagine if Justin or Mulcair gets in…

    Big Wind will die off one day. The costs are unsustainable…

    • just a thought

      As will be the costs of cleanup, once they’ve all crashed, burned or just rusted away.

      They never would have seen the light of day other than the odd one for private use had the state not provided funding and in just about all cases pretty much forced them on the people like it or not.

    fantastic …the eco-terrorists think it is so great let them fund it on their own dime.

      “But we can’t do that! It’s not sustainab.., uh, …probably shouldn’t have said that.

    Mulcair and Trudeau would ruin landscapes even more than the Ontario Liberals have already ruined Ontario north of Orangeville:

    a few rounds of 30-06 or so into the generators would end this scam over night

    Prime Minister Tony Abbott is needed in Canada

      Australia has Abbott. The rest of the world has Costello.

      • Brett_McS

        We almost had Abbott and Costello. The deputy leader under John Howard was Peter Costello; an excellent, super-smart conservative, but unfortunately he retired (early) from politics, because like all good politicians he had a life outside politics. [sigh]

    There IS a God! Now please have him direct his attention to Ontario.

    The kookaburras have all breathed a sigh of relief.

    I go past the wind far near drumheller on a regular basis (couple times a week) and I have not seen any of those turbines turning in months.

      Ah, but they don’t need to turn to continue sucking up tax payers’ dollars.
