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.

yep Viv..blind Freddy could see it is a big fail..probably why the Turd thinks its so great...

Have a read of this paper - maybe someone can send it to that twat turncoat? http://repository.upenn.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1150&context=marketing_papers

Thanks Viv, Keep on sending articles over to New Zealand as well.

I installed a 1.8klw Solar Power system to feed back to the grid. I also installed 2klw Solar System feeding into a battery power bank for all my refrigeration. I receive 50cents per klw that I sell back to the grid. I charge my battery bank at night on cheap night rate of 8c per klw. I pay no electric bills at all. Can anyone see the irony of being able to do this? I did it because I could afford to. Unfortunately the people that could really do with this system could not afford to do it. Worse of all they actually pay higher electric bills to subsidise my electric bill, but the real clincher of course is that I do not vote Green because I’m not and idiot, but they did.

To credibly predict why something will happen in the future, you have to be able to account why it happened in the past. Planetary cycles do that. Google Jupiter’s Dance, it's fascinating. https://www.jupitersdance.com/

Isn't he a"paediatrician?"What the HELL would he know about the"Electricity Market?"Do they have a special school where you get taught how to be stupid,or are they just born that way??
