Finkel Report Fails Science, Fails Consumers, and Fails Australia


Dr Finkel, grandly titled as “Australia’s Chief Scientist”, was paid by tax payers to produce A Review into the Future Security of the National Electricity Market.

This report has been studied and is rated “FAIL”.

It Fails in Science
It Fails Electricity Consumers
It Fails Australia

But Green Energy Promotors are Delighted.

Substantiation of this “FAIL” assessment can be found here in this magnificent Open Letter by Dr Michael Crawford.

Open Letter to Dr Alan Finkel


Dr Michael Crawford has written a response to the Finkel Report.

From the introduction:

“I have read your recent report with interest. Over about half a century I have observed that government reports are sometimes dishonest, ideological, obfuscatory, authoritarian, bureaucratised, wanting in courage, illogical and sometimes downright stupid.

“I have to salute you sir. Your recent report appears to have set new heights in this respect.

“Let me take some time to explain why your report so qualifies.

Dishonesty

“Under section 137.1(1) of the Criminal Code Act 1995, a person commits an offence if they give information to (i) a Commonwealth entity, or (ii) a person who is exercising powers or performing functions under, or in connection with, a law of the Commonwealth, AND the person (the source of the information) does so knowing that the information (i) is false or misleading; or (ii) omits any matter or thing without which the information is misleading.

“As will be seen below, your report appears to meet all of these conditions. Now I know that holding government officials to the same legal standards as apply to other citizens is considered, in official circles, to be unsporting. I also appreciate that the Prime Minister and sundry Ministers and other officials would find it enormously embarrassing were the author of your report to be taken before the courts. So I suspect the chance of you actually having to face charges is pretty slim.

“That does not alter the fact that your report appears in breach of section 137.1(1) of the Act in
a way that would lead to penalties for less privileged mortals.

“So as to the details…”

Climate of Confusion


By Keith Orchison

By coincidence I have come across the new “Climate of the Nation” report from the strongly green-leaning Climate Institute on the same day I have been reading the latest Essential Report polling and just after looking at a pre-dawn snapshot of east coast market capacity on a pretty standard winter’s day.

Taking the latter first, at 6.30am today 97.6 per cent of the New South Wales load was being met by black coal generation as the State’s population was getting up and its substantial factory sector was gearing up. If you take NSW, Victoria and Queensland together – they represent 90 per cent of the east coast market – at this point 88.9 per cent of the three-State load was being met by brown and black coal generation with wind power providing 0.4 per cent and solar (naturally as the sun wasn’t yet up) 0.04 per cent.

(Eight hours later, I see, at 2.30pm, black coal generation is still bearing 89.7 per cent of NSW load and coal is accounting for almost 82 per cent of required capacity in the three largest States of the market – with hydro power providing 7.5 per cent and wind/solar 4.3 per cent.)

The question that comes to my mind when I look at data like this is what would be required to replace even half this coal power (let alone all of it) with mostly wind power and solar PVs? What would the total system cost be in a set-up where supply is assured and how would this translate in to retail bills?

FILM DESCRIPTION:

Scorching temperatures. Melting ice caps. Killer hurricanes and tornadoes. Disappearing polar bears. The end of civilization as we know it!

Are emissions from our cars, factories, and farms causing catastrophic climate change? Is there a genuine scientific consensus? Or is man-made “global warming” an overheated environmental myth being used to push for drastic government control and a radical “Green” energy agenda?

This film, hosted by award-winning journalist Marc Morano of CFACT’s ClimateDepot.com, features interviews and comments from no fewer than 30 renowned and well-regarded scientists and experts.

These include a number of individuals who were former global warming believers or came from the political Left but were compelled to speak out after re-examining the evidence or watching the debate about global warming degenerate into absurd political demagoguery.

These are people like:

Dr. Judith Curry, former chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology

Ivy League geologist Dr. Robert Giegengack of the University of Pennsylvania

Former Greenpeace co-founder and ecologist Patrick Moore

UN IPCC lead author and economist Dr. Richard Tol of the Netherlands

and the late Dr. Bob Carter of James Cook University.

Viewers of Climate Hustle will get an informative and entertaining look at the media hype stoking the climate fires, along with the science refuting the outlandish claims of activists and alarmists who want to blame every strange weather event – and bizarre societal evil – on man-made global warming.

Signs of Sanity Shock the Green World


President Trump’s Clexit (Climate Exit) from the Paris agreement is a great step towards recovery from the global warming hysteria.

With thanks to Josh: www.cartoonsbyjosh.com

Coming soon after the UK Brexit which rejected the EU green octopus, the US Clexit will encourage Clexit efforts in places like central Europe, Canada and even in the decaying green swamp-lands in Germany and France. UK may even get the courage to “cut the green crap”.

This US Clexit follows the first step taken in 2010 when the canny Japanese refused to extend the Kyoto Protocol. And then Tony Abbott killed off Australia’s Carbon Tax.

The final step will be UN-CLEXIT – withdrawal from all UN climate agreements and obligations, and defunding the government climate “research” and propaganda industry.

Open Letter to All Australian Politicians


4 June 2017

Re: Withdrawal from the 2015 UN Climate Change Agreement.

I write to you as an LNP Member. The announcement that President Trump will withdraw from the 2015 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change is wonderful news because it shows that in the face of huge vested interests he has had the courage to challenge the hoax that the minute traces of human produced carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere are causing disastrous Climate Change.

Australia should also withdraw.

The objectives of the UN’s Climate Change Policies have never been about Climate.

  • Destroy Industrialisation. The first objective was to destroy the world’s industrialisation as advocated by Maurice Strong, Chairman of the 1992 Rio Earth Summit. The Greens are well on the way to achieving this in South Australia and Victoria.
  • Follow the Money Trail. The second objective was a means for a Global Transfer of Wealth. Ottman Edenhofer, a lead author of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said in 2010, “But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy … One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy.” Under the terms of the Climate Change Policy, the UN is seeking US$100 billion per year from Developed Countries for a Green Climate Fund to “help developing countries fight climate change”. In 2015, there were some 136 Developing Countries listed and only 51 Developed Countries so the affirmative vote for the UN’s Climate Policy was a foregone conclusion.

Many advocates of the Climate Policies have been wilfully opportunistic and avaricious, but many have believed in it because they have not understood the essential and benign role of CO2 in Nature.

President Trump, a major figure on the world political stage, has now had the courage to call the bluff of the Leftist Green Warmists who claim that CO2 is harmful.

I would suggest that you join with other Conservative Politicians to strongly urge the Prime Minister to cancel all Renewable Energy Targets and Subsidies.

If our Government fails to do this, we will not only be politically out of step with the USA, we will be condemned to a future of expensive and unreliable electricity, higher costs of living, diminished living standards and an exodus of industries to countries with cheaper power.

Regards

Robert J Brock

Keep a Diesel in the Shed


A Diesel in the Shed.

You can have your solar panels
and your turbines on the hills;
You can use the warmth of sunshine
to reduce your heating bills.

You can dream you’re self-sufficient
as you weed your vegie bed;
As long as you make sure to keep
A diesel in the shed.

When I was a kid on a dairy farm in Queensland, we relied on green energy – horses and human muscles provided motive power; fire-wood and beeswax candles supplied heat and light; windmills pumped water and the sun provided solar energy for growing crops, vegies and pastures. There were no refrigerators – things were kept cool by evaporation of water in a Coolgardi safe. Cold water for drinks came from a water bag hanging in the shade near the back steps. We had no hot water systems – we bathed one after another in warm water heated in a kettle on the wood stove. The only “non-green” energy used was a bit of kerosene for the kitchen lamp, and petrol for a small Ford utility. We were almost “sustainable” but there was little surplus for others. Labour was cheap and food was expensive.

Our life changed dramatically when we put a thumping diesel in the dairy shed. This single-cylinder engine drove the milking machines and an electricity generator which charged 16 lead-acid 2 volt batteries sitting on the veranda. This 32 volt DC system powered a modern marvel – bright light, at any time, in every room, at the touch of a switch. This system could also power Mum’s new electric clothes iron as long as someone started the engine for a bit more power.

There were no electric self-starters for diesels in those days – just a heavy crank handle. Here is the exact model which saved us from a life of dairy drudgery, kerosene lights and Mother Potts irons:

See and listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itxY98A8wHQ

But all that effort, noise and fumes were superseded when every house and dairy got connected to clean silent “coal power by wire”, and coal was used to produce coke for the new slow-combustion stoves. Suddenly the trusty “Southern Cross” diesel engines disappeared from Australian sheds and dairies, AGA coke-burning cookers displaced the old smoky wood-burning stoves in the kitchen, and clean-burning coal gas replaced wood stoves and dirty open fires in the cities.
