All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

Germany turns to coal fired power

As reported by Bloomberg:

Germany’s largest utilities RWE and EON AG (EOAN) are shunning cleaner-burning natural gas because it’s more costly, while the collapsing cost of carbon permits means there’s little penalty for burning coal. Wind and solar projects, central to Germany’s plans to reduce nuclear energy and cut the release of heat- trapping gases, can’t produce electricity around the clock.
How far will the carbon credits collapse before Australia links to them?
Germany’s increasing coal consumption is part of a global return to the fossil fuel that’s cheaper than most alternatives.
Why then does Australia have  ner to the costliest power in the world?

POWER TRIP: Australian electricity price high, and to rise with carbon tax. (Link)

  • Charges 70 per cent higher than the American average
  • A figure that will grow to 160 per cent in two years
  • Exposes myth that Australian electricity is relatively cheap
