TURN ON THE RIGHT TAPS......FOR OZ


Countries are dependent on flows of information and technology for their development and future prosperity. Always there is a need for a reliable supply of energy and electricity. This is very evident from Australia, and its economically failing States, especially South Australia, which is unfortunately lead by Greenie Premier Weatherill.


In South Australia, ideally we should have an energy mix of 30;30;30;10 i.e.,
Electricity power stations using coal 30%, gas 30%, nuclear 30% and Other 10%......I would be happy with that, and our industries would prosper knowing that supply is weatherproof (also Weatherill-proof) and reliable. We don't want bizarre power solutions from Nick Xenophon, nor any carbon trading schemes, or a second Interconnector Cable to adjacent Victoria State.....this would be like sending the energy lifeboat towards the Titanic for rescue by Premier Dan Andrews.


Just how incompetent can you get? Don't ask the Federal Government, or the CSIRO. Greg Hunt, our Energy Minister, relies on biased and corrupt UN information sources....why does he not receive reports from the US NIPCC? (The Non-Government International Panel on Climate Change). I would be impressed if he did, and turned OFF the information tap to the UN.


Where are the main sources of these flows of information and technology today? For coal and gas power stations we must look to Japan and China where there is much development and innovation going on. For nuclear power, I would seek help from the French and the Russians. France has 58 nuclear power stations that supply 77% of its electricity needs; in Russia the nuclear supply is about 20% of the total. However the Russians are skilled at building mini- or modular nuclear power stations to supply electricity to its vast Arctic Region (like our hot deserts) for isolated mining towns, and also for nuclear submarines and ice breaker ships.


To have a prosperous Australia we must source the right information and its associated technology. This means we must turn on the RIGHT TAPS for this to happen, at the same time TURN OFF those taps which are just supplying us with bunkum. Let's get cracking and make this happen.

CLEAN ENERGY NONSENSE......ALL SEMANTIC BALONEY



We surely don't want the future of Australia as depicted by Kane Thornton, the CEO of the Clean Energy Council. The Council's very name is deceptive and Thornton would unlikely pass the four dog test for trustworthy CEOs, for.he talks like a used car salesman and then only bunkum.

Following on the disastrous weather events in South Australia and Tasmania, it has become apparent that too much reliance on renewable energy is not a good thing. Our power supply needed for industry and domestic use is not WEATHER PROOF, nor in South Australia, is the supply Premier Weatherill-proof. Even the hydro-dams in Tasmania failed us when drought conditions came, largely because of mismanagement, and their stupidity in formerly selling power to the mainland, leaving depressed dam levels, that were unable to cope with weather emergencies.

Thornton says that we are going through a transition period of phasing out coal plants and moving our energy mix towards renewables, and this is a world wide phenomenon. NOT TRUE. It 's bunkum. There is a steady increase in the use of coal and construction of new coal -fired power plants, in Japan, China, India and throughout South East Asia. This is what we should be doing too, in Australia.

We need cheap reliable power from coal. You can't run a steel works or lead smelter or any heavy industry with intermittent and unreliable power from a wind farm; they are PARASITES to the National Grid.....the wind industry is NOT WANTED in Australia. In the forthcoming National meetings of the Minister of Energy (and the Environment) Josh Frydenberg, I hope that the importance of coal and gas in our energy mix is reaffirmed and that the wind industry is told to get lost.
