This blog is concerned with carbon and carbon dioxide, which includes the topics of climate change, global warming, global cooling, greenhouse gases, carbon footprint, energy policy, water policy, geochemistry and the politics involved from an Australian perspective.
How can Australia realise its full potential, or any potential, when it's life's blood is being bastardized by the secret Energy Australia organization with its anti-carbon ideology? It's CEO, Catherine Tanna, seems to be a raving Green loonie, having unspecified qualifications. Who the hell are they, that they think that can manipulate a "clean energy transition" that includes useless windmills and large solar plants, all of which are PARASTIC to base-load electricity, and consist of dribbles of intermittent energy that we DON’T want, and that buggers up our National Grid network if allowed to be accepted..
The only sensible way ahead for Australia is to SCRAP the RETS, or Renewable Energy Targets, which are an impost from the United Nations. We don't believe their anti-carbon mythology and the idea that CO2 gas is a pollutant. This is a nonsense. CARBON is the most the wonderful element in the chemical Periodic Table. It forms MORE compounds than ALL the other elements put together. Shame on you trying to demonize carbon and its hydrocarbon fuels and carbon dioxide. You are quite MAD and ignorant to do so.
Australia is rich in energy resources. It must develop its power from COAL, GAS and HYDRO power stations, and develop a NUCLEAR power industry. We don't need, or want, any crap renewable energy sources thank you, or to transist towards them. What we have experienced of them so far has been a FAILURE. Yes, repeat after me: FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE and I would include in this failure, the Ministry of Energy, and the Prime Minister's Office., and NEG, and Energy Australia, whose CEO hasn't got clue on the matter.
In place of the ridiculous RETS, or Renewable Energy Targets, I suggest each region has a US average domestic price target, which is about Aus 20 cents/kwhr. If the Americans can produce electricity at that price then so can we. It is just a matter of getting rid of our raving Green loonies and charlatans that infest our power industry. Regards from Allano
