Attacking the messenger? What are you, an opinion denier? *chuckle*

I know, my bad.  But Miranda Devine's job is to be divisive.  She, Andrew Bolt and their ilk do nothing but stir up a shitstorm in order to get people to take sides.

Doesn't matter what the topic, someone's coming to murder you in your bed!

Now, you've changed the title of the column printed in the Australian.  It's about soaring electricity prices.

Gee... if only they had solar panels to help them out...

Cheers,

Stick around!

It's only lunch time here.

Unless you have an intelligent point to run away from.

Monumental, Unsustainable Environmental Impacts

Replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy would inflict major land, wildlife, resource damage

Paul Driessen

Demands that the world replace fossil fuels with wind, solar and biofuel energy – to prevent supposed catastrophes caused by manmade global warming and climate change – ignore three fundamental flaws.

1) In the Real World outside the realm of computer models, the unprecedented warming and disasters are simply not happening: not with temperatures, rising seas, extreme weather or other alleged problems.

It seems we're all ignoring the elephant in the room.

Nuclear Power.

Yep - Chernobyl and Japan.

It's either that or geothermal energy.

I agree, in order for Australia to be completely self sufficient on solar power alone the solar plant would need to be the size of the entire state of Victoria.

One clean energy source is not enough.  Wind, sun and wave power are just additions to a bigger clean energy source.

But we're afraid of nuclear power stations - and with good reason.

And what happened to that poor little bird?

Actually, I'm all for the nuclear option - especially when fusion generators are a viable option, but that's the problem with alternative energy sources. They sound good, and make greenies feel good about themselves, but they aren't ever going to replace fossil fuels as low cost sources of energy.

In fact, they are already dismantling wind farms around the world as they discover that it takes more energy to keep them turning than they can produce.

As for that fried birdie, it was just one of thousands killed by California's massive Ivanpah solar array . . .

Melbourne could run out of water in ten years because of population growth and climate change

Wotta lotta bore-water!  For a start, Melbourne already has a big desalination plant that is hardly used. 

Secondly, global warming would produce more evaporation off the oceans and hence MORE rain, not less. 

Thirdly, the Snowy scheme already pours lots of dammed water into the sea for "environmental" reasons.  That water could easily be diverted inland into the Murray river. There is already a tunnel for that purpose. And again there is already a pipeline linking the Murray to Melbourne's water supply. 

The galoots below would seem not to have a clue about the Melbourne water supply.  They are however Greenies so are probably just frauds who want to frighten people. The only threat to the Melbourne water supply is the Greenies who want to send already-dammed water out to sea . . 



One of the world's most livable cities could be facing an acute water shortage problem in the next ten to 15 years time no thanks to climate change and population growth.

Water supply in Melbourne may fall and reach a crisis point if no precautionary methods are taken to contain the problem from today, reports The Age.

The publication says demand for water in the state is expected to exceed the supply by 2028.

According to projections made by City West Water, Yarra Valley Water and South East Water demand for water is projected to surge to about 75 percent in the next 40 years, the publication reports.

Some water corporation produced the probable scenario for the state's water supply, Environment Victoria's acting chief executive, Nicholas Aberle told Daily Mail Australia.

Mr Aberle said there was a bunch of things that Melbournians can do to address the situation by incorporating several water saving habits.

He said people should learn ways on saving storm water and turning that into a valuable water resource. 'During the drought (1997 to 2009) people were managing water efficiency by only using 155 litres a day.

'People should have a behavioural change and use 100 litres of water a day and handle the water resources efficiently,' he said.

Melbourne Water spokesman Joseph Keller told the publication that people living in the state were 'encouraged to limit their consumption to 155 litres per person per day.'

BTW, wind generators kill birds too . . . big ones like our national symbol . . .

A bird flew into the spare bedroom window 2 days ago.

Hit it so hard it died instantly.  I was honestly relieved at that - I didn't want it to suffer.

I read the water shortage story earlier.

Flood or drought, flood or drought - Australia can never find a happy medium.

But hey - we have plenty of uranium!

Just need a forward thinking Australian government prepared to take the nuclear plunge...

So that's a no...

Sigh,

Jenifer
