Proposed Petition for anyone who wants to protest Scomo’s energy policy.


Petition: Women supporting the lowest possible priced Energy for Australia.

 

If you are a woman who cares about 

·       The cost of living especially electricity prices,

·       About Australian industry and business being competitive, 

·       About families and children having a real future, (not one determined by the United Nations and it’s Paris climate agenda) and

·       If you want Australia to be strong and independent please Sign the Petition; 

·       Demand the LNP allow investment in HELE coal, gas and nuclear. Get rid of the subsidies to wind and solar. Bring back cheap, reliable electricity. Invest in OUR coal, OUR gas, OUR nuclear. 

 


Notes

·       Australia is the world’s largest exporter of coal and liquid natural gas (LNG). 

·       We export 80% of the coal we produce and over 90% of the LNG. 

·       The remaining 20% of the coal and 10% of the LNG supplies 80% of Australia’s electricity generation. 

·       Australia exports all of its uranium. We use no uranium.

We export to nations like China which use our coal, gas and uranium to build new High Energy Low Emission (HELE) coal power plants, new LNG plants and new nuclear plants. 

As a result, nations like China have a huge economic advantage over Australia with cheap, reliable electricity. Australia has gone from the world’s lowest electricity prices to the most expensive.

The reason Australia has the most expensive electricity prices is renewables. In 2019 wind and solar supplied about 15% of Australia’s electricity. Total subsidies to wind and solar are over $13 billion PA and supply half of their revenues. Coal, gas (and prospectively nuclear) cannot compete with this and incur costs in having to adjust their output levels to accommodate subsidised wind and solar!

·       The LNP won the last election because it supported coal. 

·       The voters of QLD especially wanted coal to be part of our national electricity. 

·       PM Morrison and his energy minister Angus Taylor have presented an energy plan for Australia which does not include coal! 

·       Apart from a small gas power plant to be built in NSW to replace the much larger Liddell coal plant the rest of their plan could have been written by the Greens!

The LNP must support new HELE, gas and nuclear power plants. They must hear the voice of concern women. If we do not build HELE, gas and nuclear power plants we will face not only expensive electricity but shortages of electricity.

Why Worry about Warming?

Cold is the Killer

by Viv Forbes

15 Nov 2020


Green alarmists are fanning a firestorm of fear about man-made global warming.

Earth always cycles between warmth and cold. Every recent warm period (Medieval Warming, Roman Warming etc) was a time of plenty for all life on Earth, whilst cold periods like the Little Ice Age saw crop failures, famine, migrations, invasions, disease and death.

Sea levels rise as ice sheets melt, and fall as they rebuild. Coastal dwellers and offshore coral reefs must always migrate landward or seaward, or north/south, following the climatic environment they prefer.

Warming/cooling phases are triggered by solar system cycles which are often accompanied by volcanism. These drivers are far more powerful than any human influences.

Oceans cover over 70% of Earth’s surface and dominate our weather and climate. When the sun or the volcanic trenches and the rings-of-fire warm the oceans, two things happen. Firstly, water evaporates to form more clouds which shade, cool and rain on the Earth. Secondly, CO2 plant food is expelled into the atmosphere, like CO2 bubbles leaving a warming beer. This makes the oceans more alkaline.

With the additional moisture and CO2 plant food in the atmosphere, all plants benefit - forests expand, deserts shrink and grasslands, crops and marine plants flourish. All animals that live on plants or on grazing animals are also well-fed. Soon farmers, graziers, foresters, fishermen, city dwellers and tax collectors welcome better times. 

But climate is never still - changing climate and variable weather are normal conditions on Earth. For the last million years, Earth has basked in recurring short Warm Periods (about 12,000 years) followed by long brutal Frigid Periods (about 80,000 years). 

Evidence from the Greenland Ice Cores shows that Earth’s 1000 year average temperature peaked about 7,500 years ago and has been trending down for over 3,000 years. There are always short term fluctuations but we are past the warming peak. We live now in the latter days of the Holocene Warm Period. There may be short bursts of warming, but the big trend is down. A frigid period lies ahead.

As cyclic solar heating declines, land cools quicker than the deep oceans. Moisture will still evaporate from the warm oceans and fall on the cooling land as rain and snow. Snow and ice will again advance over the northern grain belts. Continued evaporation soon triggers cooling of the oceans which then re-absorb atmospheric moisture and CO2. 

Plants always suffer greatly in the developing cold, dry, CO2-starved atmosphere. And when plants suffer, animals and humans face hunger and famine.

Industries and cities powered by coal, oil, gas and nuclear power are largely immune to changing climate. However, we are making a huge climate gamble by demonising reliable hydro-carbons and nuclear power and rushing into intermittent, climate-dependent energy such as wind and solar propped up by “humungous batteries”.

The Holocene Warming is almost over.

After today’s bountiful warmth comes the cold, dry, hungry phase of Earth’s climate.

Fruitful warmth is no threat. Bitter cold is the deadly menace.
