Tasmania’s Pathetic Wind Power Push: Plug Gets Pulled on Plans for All RE Future

STOP THESE THINGS

These days, it’s almost impossible for wind power promoters to finish a sentence without reference to batteries or pumped hydro.

In the beginning, when the wind industry said ‘let there be light’, they meant only occasionally, and only when the wind was blowing, just right.

Now that the average punter has worked out that the only guarantee delivered by wind power, is guaranteed chaos, those still in on the rort are bound to start waffling about storing all that wonderful ‘green’ energy; lovingly caressed from nature’s bounteous breezes (albeit at times when there is no market for it), to be gently guided back into the grid when there might actually be a demand for it.

In that vein, PM, Malcolm Turnbull is all pumped up about Snowy 2.0 (an un-costed $10 billion brain fart, unlikely to get past the scoping phase).  And there are plenty also pumping up Tasmania…

Universities are facing the same pressures as more students demand the right under federal law to bring their therapy pets to campus and their dormitories.  At Yale, the number of such animals have increased from just one last year to 14 animals this year.  This the increase has come complaints of constant barking and other inconveniences.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
