Green Energy Policy?

... it's nothing that works

Modern industrial society commenced with the use of coal and oil to power factories, trains, ships and agriculture and to generate electricity. With abundant energy, prosperity increased, and people could save enough to support leisure, education, culture and environmental concerns.

But the dark greens have a dream to dismantle all this, and return society to the hunter/gatherer era.

In an unguarded moment Maurice Strong, a leader of the international green movement, said:

“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialised civilisations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?”

Greens have thus gleefully spread the global warming scare to justify a massive political war on hydro-carbon fuels.Timothy Wirth, ex-President of the UN Foundation, spilt the beans: 

“We've got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”

To mask their real aim of de-energising modern industry, they continually promote “alternative energy”.

The only alternatives to coal, oil and gas for stable, reliable and economical grid power are nuclear energy, and in favourable locations, hydro or geothermal. 

Nuclear power could be one of our cheapest and safest energy sources. However greens have opposed and denigrated it for decades, and erected such bureaucratic and financial hurdles that it is seldom considered in most pampered western societies.

They are in favour of hydro, providing it does not disturb one fish or frog on their favourite river.

But they continually spruik the benefits of wind and solar power.

Wind/solar can be useful in some mobile or remote locations, and for some people with deep pockets who wish to become independent of the grid. But being totally unable to supply 24/7 grid power, they need reliable backup (or massive batteries) for about 75% of their rated capacity. Once we subtract the energy and resources needed to build and maintain the towers/panels, plus the roads and transmission lines, plus backup/batteries and then run it all intermittently, the whole-of-life net-contribution of wind/solar to energy supply or emission reduction is negligible or negative.

Another dark green leader, Amory Lovins of the Rocky Mountains Institute, said: 

“It would be little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap, abundant energy, because of what we might do with it.”

Green energy policy promotes this dictum by supporting “Nothing that Works”.

The world focus on carbon dioxide is simply a useful tool in a much larger political agenda:

Seems to be conceding that the global warming theory is wrong.

Church of England dumps coal


The Church of England will dump its holdings in coal and oil-sand producers and has ruled out backing companies with exposure to the most polluting fossil fuels, joining the movement that wants investors to help fight climate change, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

The church's investment arm said on Thursday that it will sell its £12 million ($24 million) coal and tar sands investments. The church also vowed not to invest in any business that get more than 10% of its revenues from the fuels, ruling out companies including Peabody Energy and Suncor Energy.

And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for coal

The American company on Friday announced its new investment in batteries for homes, businesses and utilities, as it continues to leverage its booming empire beyond the electric car.

"Tesla is not just an automotive company, it's an energy innovation company," the company said in a statement.

"With Tesla Energy, Tesla is amplifying its efforts to accelerate the move away from fossil fuels to a sustainable energy future with Tesla batteries, enabling homes, business, and utilities to store sustainable and renewable energy to manage power demand, provide backup power and increase grid resilience."

A major proponent for Tesla's new investment is a domestic device it calls the Powerwall: a rechargeable lithium-ion battery designed to store energy at a residential level for load shifting (charging during low rate periods and discharging during higher rate periods), backup power and self-consumption of solar power generation.

The devices employ a liquid thermal control system and software that receives dispatch commands from a solar inverter. It is wall-mounted and is integrated with the local power grid to harness excess power and give customers the flexibility to draw energy for their own source.

The device will be available in the US from around August, priced at approximately $4435 (AUD) for a 10kWh version, or $3800 (AUD) for a 7kWh version..

For people who believe in wind power - this is for you. Please read it carefully. If, when making your giant windmill you put a meter out the front of your factory and measure the amount of electricity you use to make the machine. Write it down, then let the giant windmill you have made run for 20 years and measure the total amount of electricity it has generated throughout its life and write that down. You will find that the windmill will never,never,never,never make the amount of electricity that was used to make the bloody thing in the first place. So how useless is that??????? Please re read a second and third time if necessary. And if you still don't get it,Doggone ask someone to explain it to you.

The British government has suspended all subsidies to the wind generation industry. At the same time it has begun construction on three new nuclear powered generating plants. Now that's a smart move for the future. Cheap electricity for industry and households. Pity no government in Australia will ever take up the challenge to start a nuclear industry here.

The green slime and fellow travellers want us to have hurricane lamps and bicycles and for the place to be full of muslimes.

BREAKING NEWS - ABC NEWS / 7.30 REPORT TONIGHT

- NEW HOPE GROUP FINALLY ADMITS THAT QUEENSLAND WILL RECEIVE ABSOLUTELY NO ROYALTIES AT ALL FROM THEIR STAGE THREE EXPANSION THAT WILL EARN THE COMPANY AROUND $19 BILLION - "...IT WILL GO TO THIRD PARTIES AND NEW HOPE PASTORAL COMPANY.." (EG, THE SUPER RICH COMPANY DIRECTORS, SHAREHOLDERS AND NEW HOPE PASTORAL ITSELF - ALL THE SAME CLEVER CORPORATE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE, MINING MATES AND MONGRELS IN SUITS)

This means there will be no new hospitals, no new schools, no new universities, no new roads, no new railways etc.


This disgraceful lie has been perpetuated throughout the Beattie, Bligh and Newman Government - and now it has all finally been exposed.

This is exactly what we have said all along - and no one in previous Queensland Governments have ever had the guts to admit the truth.

We now call on the Palaszczuk Government to revoke the Stage Three license because it has absolutely minimal benefit to the general Queensland population - and it will destroy our prime agricultural land and our underground water on the inner Darling Downs.

It's certainly been a big week for justice - Newman and Seeney dropped their defamation case against Alan Jones - and now the New Hope Group - the ultimate Robber Barons - have been forced to admit the truth as well.

Our deepest and most heartfelt thanks to an extraordinary team of people who have shown the true ANZAC spirit and love of their country.

They have never stopped protesting, never stopped investigating, never stopped stepping up and being brave beyond belief. It has been a true privilege to know them - and to work beside them.

All we can say is that Australia is in very good hands when you know these amazingly courageous people.

Stay tuned - we have much bigger revelations set to happen early next week.

NO PLANS TO DIVERT ANY INDONESIAN AID TO ASSIST DROUGHT-HIT AUSTRALIAN FARMERS SAYS PM ABBOTT - (BUT HE WILL HELP, HE SAYS)

Gee whizz, we've been hearing that same promise since you were first elected to officer, Mr Abbott.

With a bit of luck Prime Minister, by the time you finally get around to it, there won't be any poor old farmers left to worry about.


Either that - or you will no longer be still in office.

I have seen lately ads for timber products, because the timber locks in carbon, don't trees make oxygen from carbon?? and why would a green group approve of logging to make timber products?????why are we fed bullshit?????????

All south east Queensland dams now releasing massive quantities of water. Well predicted Tim F. You idiot!

SHY talks a lot of dribble shit, one real big trouble maker, obvious she does not consider the merits of anything, its just continuous diarrhea.

Senseless and heartbreaking. Deepest sympathies to the families of Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran.
Remorse and forgiveness are far more powerful than brutal executions.

I wonder how well this would work? http://www.news.com.au/technology/environment/tesla-announces-new-batteries-for-your-home/story-fnjwvztl-1227330338797

Horse is back under another name stephen andrews

"According to a new U.N. report, the global warming outlook is much worse than originally predicted. Which is pretty bad when they originally predicted it would destroy the planet.

"Yesterday, a group of scientists warned that because of global warming, sea levels will rise so much that parts of Canberra will be under water. The bad news? Parts of Canberra won't be under water

Oinions also kill people

Its called a vacuum

sorry tomo I lost focus
