Finkel Fails Carbon Sense

Dr Finkel, grandly titled as “Australia’s Chief Scientist”, was paid by taxpayers to produce: “A Review into the Future Security of the National Electricity Market”. This report has been studied and is rated “FAIL”. It Fails in Science, It Fails Electricity Consumers, It Fails Australia. But Green Energy Promotors are Delighted.

Australian Engineer, Bob Brock, puts it clearly: “the solution to Australia’s growing energy crisis is blindingly simple:

1. Defer until 2030 the implementation of the UN Climate Agreement.

2. Cancel all Renewable Emissions Targets (RETs) and Clean Energy Targets (CETs).

3. Cancel all Federal subsidies for Renewable Energy.

4. Advocate 99.98% availability targets for all energy suppliers to ensure reliability of supply.

5. Advocate building only traditional coal-fired power stations in the future for base load.

6. Do not support the use of gas as a base-load fuel as it is more expensive than coal.

7. Do not advocate High Efficiency Low Emission (HELE) power stations unless the economics justify their more expensive construction costs. The extra CO2 that conventional coal-fired power stations emit is neither dirty nor a pollutant – despite advice from the Green Coalition which dominates the Labor, Liberal and Green Parties.

8. If, in the face of scientific evidence, you still want to believe that CO2 is a problem, commit to a concurrent long term plan for developing a Nuclear Industry. If these policies were implemented, we would not need expensive interconnecting transmission lines, or the costly, parasitic Energy Marketing Operator (States would be responsible), or PM Turnbull’s energy recycling scheme, Snowy Mk 2.0.”

Even Visiting Americans can see the foolish mess Australian politicians have created: https://townhall.com/columnists/pauldriessen/2017/07/15/insanity-and-hypocrisy-down-under-n2355240

Substantiation of this “FAIL” assessment can be found here in this magnificent Open Letter by Dr Michael Crawford.

Great article. The open letter should be shoved up every politicians fundamental orifice.

Thanks Viv, any sane person can see where we are heading with this and if we dont get some new coal fired power stations soon we are in big trouble. I live in S.A so I know all about what the state labor government have done here with their insane green energy policy and the end result of having to put in a heap of diesel generators before summer this year to try and cover the deficit as a result of the 1600mw Hazelwood power station closing in Victoria.

Rinaldo and Bob and others. We in New Zealand have an interest in the disaster that is the Australian body politic. Our man John Key was from Merrill Lynch, had a stint with Goldman and used the Prime Minister position entirely for his own fame and benefit. [ disputed by most apathetic new Zealanders . He showed that an easy going charlatan can be immensely popular.

The deliberate lies continue. I just read a “Busting The Myths” article from The Conversation where they claimed: CLAIM: Electric cars always take hours to recharge Electric cars can be slow-charged from a standard power point at home or work, a process which takes about 10 hours. Our standard GPO is 10A which allowing for losses can charge 2KW every hour so you could almost charge a Nissan Leaf in 10 hrs. Multiply by 4 for a Tesla S. An expensive 3ph supply would do much better but will your supplier approve this when it is certain that it will… Read more »

Hans Viv for a touch of commonsense. I notice with interest that those who believe the renewables fake new rely upon coal base load, ask the hypocrites to disconnect from the grid and survive on their renewables………. They won’t because they are full of shit!

I’m not surprised that the jews only represent 0.4% of the Australian population, The statistics are made up from the information supplied in the census. If I were a jew I wouldn’t be prepared to admit it, with all the jew haters here.

During the Brisbane flood, engineers went out in flooding rain with gum boots sinking in mud and with raincoats on and as some rain gauges weren’t working they declared there was no rain. This was supported by the flood enquiry, there was no rain, no rain that led to 35 suicides

Dr Michael Crawford has written a wonderful open letter to Dr Finkel that demolishes Dr Finkel’s Report. It would be hard for any honest politician to read it and still claim confidence in our Federal Government’s Climate Policy. http://carbon-sense.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/open-letter-to-dr-alan-finkel.pdf Dr Michael Crawford has a BSc and an MD in management from ANU, and a BA and PhD in organisation theory and management from UNSW. He has undertaken research and teaching on the Executive Programs at the Australian Graduate School of Management. He is co-author of the book Changing Power: Capabilities That Drive Corporate Renewal, based on a six year study… Read more »

Car buffs thinking of changing cars, read this.

Just for your information.

I always wondered why we never saw a cost analysis on what it actually costs to operate an electric car. Now we know why.

At a neighborhood BBQ I was talking to a neighbor, a BC Hydro executive. I asked him how that renewable thing was doing. He laughed, then got serious. If you really intend to adopt electric vehicles, he pointed out, you had to face certain realities. For example, a home charging system for a Tesla requires 75 amp service.

Your mind is still in the 1920’s ours is in the now where we have the technology to burn anything and trap any airborne particle that can be seen as a threat to the atmosphere but the problem is that there are people like you who’s minds are still in the dirty years of coal usage before we evolved into a different engine to power production .

yes Viv…all this “Global Warming”, Climate Change” or call it what you want is nothing more than a Communist Plot to destroy Capitalism..there is no doubt in any thinking persons mind..that the United Nazis are nothing more than Marxist Socialists..like good Communists, they know how to target those in society that a feeble minded and totally stupid..just look at where Communism was always successful…always in areas where the average person is as dumb as dog shit and know nothing about science or life itself..meanwhile Gore flies around in his jet, burns up massive amounts of electricity and has a big… Read more »

Thanks again Viv for a great article. Please, make more contributions. The pollies are probably waking up to the fact that the tide is turning on this scam. When people realise the truth behind this the credibility of the political class will be in tatters. Those who supported this bullshit should be held to account. Loose all their entitlements and be tried for treason. Fkn arseholes. The whole lot of them. ALSO. No person should be able to hold a seat in either house of parliment unless they are both born here AND have children…. Look at all the loony… Read more »

Bob Brock’s 8 point plan is what should happen. But we don’t have any elected governments – State or Federal – with the common sense and intestinal fortitude to do it. The two Tom Playford Coal Stations set SA up with electricity to burn but the labor greens and weak-kneed Liberals have replaced them with unreliable intermittent “renewables.” Barking mad all of them. Thorium nuclear power is going to be inevitable – but not before there is a lot of hardship and loss of life.
