Solar power only works while the sun shines – it is part-time power. Wind power only works when suitable winds blows – also part-time power. Batteries only work when charged – part-time power again. Hydro fails in droughts – more part-time power.
For yonks they waged a war on coal And painted miners black; They threw explorers on the dole And shut the gates outback.
The Clexit Coalition today called on President Trump to keep his election promise to withdraw from the Paris Climate Treaty and stop US payments to all UN global warming programs.
You can have your solar panels and your turbines on the hills; You can use the warmth of sunshine to reduce your heating bills. You can dream you’re self-sufficient as you weed your vegie bed; As long as you make sure to keep A diesel in the shed.
Every day some green energy promoter or a battery salesman tells us how green energy with battery backup will supply Australia’s future electricity needs.
We don’t have an electricity supply crisis – we have an energy policy crisis. Vote-seeking politicians with little understanding of markets, engineering or energy have passed costly laws, shuffled a pack of complex regulations, imposed discriminatory taxes and subsidies, set unrealistic targets, interfered in markets, and imposed death-by-delay on real energy explorers and developers.
There was a time when true environmentalists strove to protect wild things. Now the green shirts have become enemies of the environment by pushing green energy and demonising the building blocks of life - carbon and carbon dioxide.
We are told, incessantly, that man’s use of hydrocarbon fuels will cause climate catastrophe, with more droughts, heat waves, bush fires, floods, blizzards, snow storms, typhoons, hurricanes, super-storms and “weird” weather.
It’s time to stop wasting taxpayer funds on climate propaganda posing as “research”.
For decades now, global warming scaremongers have been stealing energy from the environment using windmills, solar collectors and biofuels, force-fed by carbon taxes and emission trading schemes. Their delusional dream is to cool the globe.
Napoleon’s Grand Army was defeated in the Battle of the Nations in 1813. The Emperor abdicated and was banished to Elba. But his army was not disarmed and destroyed by the victors.
Nothing better illustrates the stupidity and evil intent of Green philosophy than their promotion of a mythical guesstimate called the “social cost of carbon” (SCC). They use this bureaucratic weapon to demonise the fabulous fossil fuels that deliver food, heat, light and power to the modern world.
