"Renewables"
Author Geoff Carmody is Director, Geoff Carmody & Associates, a former co-founder of Access Economics, and before that was a senior officer in the Commonwealth Treasury.

Can we afford a renewables-only power supply?

RE: "Renewables"
Despite the spending of $ Trillions on unreliable, inefficient, expensive, habitat destroying renewable energy, this is the energy mix as of 2018:

It's past time to start seriously thinking nuclear ... or another energy source that is NOT wind or solar .... for main power grids.

Wind and solar still has a place in niche applications, eg remote outposts.

Former deputy prime minister John Anderson says the confusion and obfuscation over the objectives in energy policy over the last decade has contributed to the breakdown of trust in politicians and parliament.

Bugger I recorded that and forgot to watch it today.

He's right about that, people who don't know what makes Coke fizz are totally convinced that they are smarter than politicians because they "trust the science" that they never took notice of in school and saw Greta chucking a tanny.

I don't think you can get through to the Twitterverse 'Chicken Littles' because they don't really care enough about the truth to listen, they only care about trying to appear as smart as their 'peers'... not a high benchmark.

RE: "Renewables"
" Environmentalists have long promoted renewable energy sources as better for nature. But a new study suggests that the expansion of mining for the materials to make solar panels and wind turbines may pose a greater threat than climate change to endangered species.

“Most mining areas (82%) target materials needed for renewable energy production,” note the authors in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Communications. And, they add, “these new threats to biodiversity may surpass those averted by climate change mitigation.”

The study comes at a moment when the expansion of solar and wind energy is increasing local opposition, raising electricity prices, and contributing to electricity shortages.

Recent electricity outages in California forced the state’s governor to acknowledge the dangers posed by attempting to rely on unreliable sources of renewable energy.

“We cannot sacrifice reliability,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said on August 17. “We have to sober up to the reality that… we’re going to have to do more, and be much more mindful, in terms of our capacity to provide backup and insurance.”

As Renewables Falter, Environmentalists Stand Up For Nuclear

Reality bites? We should all stop listening to the bleating of the climat cult crazies.

Is that old fella in the middle holding the photo of the baby, that you use so often, related Don??

We should be protesting for nuclear energy here! I see all mention of it has been dropped in Canberra again. Scomo's been scared off by someone.Angry So much for 'open discussion!"
