The latest push by the NEG with Energy Policy is to lock in a 26% reduction of emissions by 2030, on 2005 levels. This means we lock in 26% reduction for a full 10 years, until 2030. What a load of nonsense dreamed up by the lunatic fringe of pollies, without a brain between them. These idiot pollies should all be taken by the scruff of the neck and tossed into Lake Burley Griffin, metaphorically speaking, of course.
How many times have I explained to them that
NOT need to reduce its emissions of CO2, or "Greenhouse Gases", whatever
you like to call them? CO2 is NOT a
pollutant. It is a valuable component of
the Earth's atmosphere, and there should be MORE of it in the atmosphere, not
LESS. Currently it is at the level of
410 ppm and is fortunately slowly increasing, largely due to the present
vigorous volcanic activity in Australia Hawaii, Guatemala, and elsewhere. Indonesia
I object to our Ministry of Energy formulating
's Energy Policies according to the fraudulent
anti-carbon mythology promoted by the United Nations. We must get rid of these RETS, or Renewable
Energy Targets at the State and Federal level, which stifle our economic
development. They are based on UN
anti-carbon bunkum, and the mythology that they can control a supposed rise in
the Earth's temperature by 2 degrees' thus preventing catastrophic global
warming. If you believe that you'll also
believe in Father Christmas. Geologists
are predicting a global cooling and another Ice Age. Regards from Allano. Australia

The proposed Energy Policy future expounded by NEG (National Energy Guarantee) must be avoided like the plague, since it is based on UN anti-carbon nonsense. Why doesn't Josh and the Ministry of Energy use their BRAINS to solve our energy crisis, instead of relying on the UN and its "clean energy nonsense", and related mythology, egged on by the power charlatans and the Greens, that is now jeopardizing our future well being..
According to NEG, it has the only comprehensive policy to force down domestic power prices. Apparently current and planned renewables are here to stay, and Snowy 2 makes them more reliable!!!. Our "clean energy future" is assured. We shall achieve our Paris CC obligations early, by our planned reduction of Greenhouse Gases.
Needless to say, this is all NONSENSE. We don't have to reduce our CO2 emissions, since CO2 is NOT a pollutant. CO2 is a desirable component of our atmosphere and is essential for the well being of the BIOSPHERE, i.e., for the growth of our crops, pasture and forests. We need MORE CO2 in the atmosphere, NOT LESS. Believe me, for I am a chemist, and not from the Government. Regards Allano
Tony Abbott is correct to warn us of the potential failings of the National Energy Guarantee (NEG) proposals for Australia's energy future. Liberal Trent Zimmerman, at Tuesday 's Coalition party room meeting, had an opposite but soothing view. He said that all was well and that NEG had covered the three most important desires of policy: viz., providing grid security, lowering prices, and meeting our Paris targets. Also, he warned that it would be a serious mistake to ignore the rising concern of Australian voters about the impact of climate change.
The hobgoblins are now all in place. The American political writer and critic H. L. Mencken (1880 - 1956) wrote "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."
This NEG Energy Policy is a nonsense.. It will fix nothing. Our energy crisis will get worse. It will not lower prices. Why is this?
Firstly, the policy is all dependent on the UN fallacy that CO2 is an unwelcome pollutant and must be eliminated, or reduced from our emissions, which is a nonsense. CO2 is the life blood of the BIOSPHERE and must be cherished. CO2 is an essential part of our atmosphere. There should be MORE CO2 not LESS in the atmosphere. The current level is about 410 ppm and is slowly rising, thanks to present vigorous volcanic eruptions in Hawaii, Guatemala and elsewhere. CO2 gas is good stuff. It is an invisible gas, found in many foods, including beer, wines, and breads etc. We humans breathe it out all the time. CO2 is nothing to be afraid of. It's not a hobgloblin.
Therefore it follows that our Ministry of Energy, and Josh the Minister, have been barking up the wrong tree. We don't have to reduce our emissions. We don't need to have RETS, or Renewable Energy Targets, which are designed to reduce our emissions of CO2 from burning fossil fuels, such as coal and gas, and stifle our economy at the same time. This idea is all a nonsense imposed by the UN; as previously warned by our former PM, Tony Abbott. "It's a load of crap." he says, and as a scientist (geochemist), I agree with him.
The other hobgloblin that is always drawn out to scare people is that of "climate change." Climate is always changing very slowly and has done since our planet Earth began, about 4 1/2 billion years ago. We humans can't do much about that. Geologists are not worried about it. You are welcome to believe in the mythology of Paris Accord, which is an agreement among countries to supposedly limit a world temperature rise to 2 degrees, by restricting Greenhouse Gas emissions. As a scientist, I equate this with believing in the mythology of Santa Claus, visiting at Christmas time with his sleigh drawn by reindeer, full of presents to put in your stocking at the end of your bed. Such mythology is wonderful for amusing children, but it is best forgotten when devising Energy Policies. Regards from Allano.
