Part Time Power

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.

And using full-time power like gas to fill the inevitable supply gaps from part-time power forces backup gas to operate like part-time power.

Moreover, on sunny windy days, wind and solar generators spew out electricity at little extra cost. These erratic surges of part-time power drive electricity prices so low that even low-cost full-time producers like coal cannot operate profitably at those times. They are throttled back and forced to operate as yet another part-time power plant.

24/7 electricity users such as hospitals, trains, factories, refineries, fuel and water pumps, cash registers, infrastructure and mines cannot operate on part-time electricity.

Moreover, every part-time power producer (using sun, wind, batteries, hydro, gas or coal) consumes money full-time for operations, standby, maintenance and replacement. Each also has to fund its own specialised generators, transmission lines, access roads and workforce. Electricity becomes both unreliable and expensive, and consumers suffer.

Using taxes, subsidies, dictates and mandates to replace a full-time power producer like coal with up to five part-time power producers only makes sense in the part-time minds that inhabit Greentopia.

Canberra cannot improve any of this with more laws and regulations – they must REPEAL all the legislation, regulations, subsidies and taxes that created the mess in the first place. State governments too should repeal their silly energy laws, and stop shutting and destroying power stations. 

More laws and regulations can only make things worse. 





Troop...I'm a pensioner, had an echocardiogram in June...cost me nothing...bulk billed.Maybe you should shop around first.I have heard some charge, some bulkbill.

AND claiming I'd called Larry a C which was the context of my reply, now EFF OFF.Moron.

YOU mentioned MY name, I had not commented on this post moron !

Bickmore must have picked up last nights dress at the local tip. What a mess it was . The whole show is crap with Helier and that bogan Laurie on Fridays. I can't watch it

'Twas KanGuru and the comment is still up lying Cxnt !

Esau –Edom
In Ezekiel 35, 36, we find that the descendants of Esau-Edom (or Idumea) coveted the land and rejoiced when Israel and Judah went into captivity. Divine judgment is thus pronounced “against all Edom, who appropriated My land for themselves as a possession” (Ezekiel 36:5).
Isaiah 34:8, KJV, calls it “the controversy of Zion,” speaking of divine judgment against Edom. Historically, about 126 B.C. the Judean leader, John Hyrcanus, conquered Idumea (Edom) and forced them to convert to Judaism. Josephus wrote about this and concluded by saying, “they were hereafter no other than Jews” (Antiquities of the Jews, XIII, ix, 1). The Jewish Encyclopedia says “from this time the Idumeans ceased to be a separate people,” for they were absorbed into Jewry. This meant that the prophecies of Judah and Edom were bound together.
Malachi 1:1-4 prophesies of this controversy, showing the Zionist motives of Esau. Verse 4 says,
4 Though Edom says, “We have been beaten down, but we will return and build up the ruins”; thus says the Lord of hosts, “They may build, but I will tear down; and men will call them the wicked territory, and the people toward whom the Lord is indignant forever.”
This is a prophecy of modern Zionism in the past century. The spirit of Edom has worked within world Jewry, saying, “we will return.” God does not refute this, but says only that “I will tear down.” If Edom had not returned and rebuilt the ruins, God would have nothing to tear down, so the establishment of the Israeli state was inevitable.
The establishment of the Israeli state was the fulfillment of Isaac’s blessing upon Esau, for at that time Esau received the dominion and took the birthright name Israel for itself.
The second half of this controversy involves the remnant of Judah to whom the Edomites were united forcibly in 126 B.C. This turned out to be the “evil fig” (Jeremiah 24) company which remained in rebellion against God. They rejected Christ and usurped His throne, as we have already shown. Jesus then cursed the fig tree (representing the nation), but later prophesied that this fig tree would again come to life and bring forth leaves (Matthew 24:32). Leaves, of course, were the very reason why the fig tree had been cursed earlier (Matthew 21:19). Jesus came looking for fruit, but only found leaves—a show of righteousness.
The evil figs of Judah later found common cause with the Jewish Edomites. The Zionist prophecies of Edom matched the prophecy of the cursed fig tree coming to life and producing more leaves. Together, the result was Zionism and the state of Israel (so-called).
From a genealogical standpoint, neither the Jews nor the Edomites were Israelites, as defined by the prophets. Most of the prophets wrote of Israel after the kingdom had been divided, and so they wrote about Israel and Judah as two separate entities. In my view, the regathering of the lost House of Israel has been fulfilled in a different way and through different people, as I explained in my book, Who is an Israelite?

Haha lets hope!

Do show me where I called Larry a c*nt Oh Stoned One.

Who cares? One Bitcoin ATM is AU$7,181.34 which is up from AU$811.38 a year ago.

Sack them all .

New post up.

So Xenophon is likely to be the next premier of S.A if you can believe the polls down there 41% of the vote, ha,ha South Australian's can say goodbye to their pokies if he gets in.

Just made my Christmas Pud, thought I would chuck some sweet mince pies in the oven also, husband will eat them anytime of the year. Now, it was Robinson's sweet mince. Do you know I actually looked for the Golly Wog that used to come with the jars. You could save them up send them in and get a Golly Wog pin in exchange. Oh the good old days.

It seems the Czechs still enjoy free speech:

I may watch to see these 2 leftie bitches trying to score points against one another.

All according plan I'm afraid.

Another Turnbull fiasco.............Bolt on 2GB.
French say they cannot build the Submarines with propulsion system as promised.

And by killing Gaddafi they have turned Europe into a black Islamic shit hole.
