I value intelligent debate
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...
It's only lunch time here.
Unless you have an intelligent point to run away from.
It seems we're all ignoring the elephant in the room.
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
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...
