EPA leads USA and Australia to low economic outcomes


US commentator, Alan Caruba says today in his blog "Facts not Fantasy"... "Cleaning the nation’s air and water is a public health activity, but denying Americans access to the nation’s vast reservoirs of coal, oil, and natural gas is an attack on the nation’s economic growth and a denial of the energy it requires to recover from the 2008 financial crisis, providing jobs and keeping energy costs under control.
Environmentalism is based on lies and the lies reflect an agenda that regards humanity as the enemy of the Earth".

We see the same thing happening in Australia and especially South Australia which has suffered from 9 years of Labor Government mismanagement caused by dreamily following Greeny environmental ideas without question. We now have at a cost of $2 billion an unneeded desalination plant which exists on standby, run by Green power from wind mills, according to the Greens. About 25 wind farms (at least) despoil our countryside providing a dribble of power mostly when we don't need it. The domestic price for electricity is 31 cents per kWh which is the highest of all states of the nation. All wind farms require a 100% backup from gas-fired power plants so why allow them to be built in the first place?

South Australia has extensive gas and coal resources and the world's largest uranium mine all of which are ignored by Labor and Greenies in Government as as an energy source to be promoted for development. No, we must be content with very expensive electricity from wind mills and pie-in-the-sky solar-plants. Pox on Premier Jay Weatherill and his useless Labor Government. Roll on the SA State elections in March 2014. Get ready to boot Labor out of office.
Merry Xmas from Allano
