“People under 25 are the strongest supporters of renewable energy, though they worry more about job security. I suspect this is because a lot of them don’t pay energy bills.
“Despite the job losses, the factory closures and the painful cost of living price hikes, I suspect South Australians will continue to believe the green lies, they will keep chasing their impossible dream of a renewable future for a long time to come.”
AS long as Left-wing/socialist governments can borrow and use other peoples’ money for ideological “green” symbolism, the economic rot of unreliables – wind and solar power – fed by a collective climate change madness, will continue unchallenged, despite what the majority of people want over the eco-elites and the >25 year-old social justice warriors.
Insanity on stilts.

South Australians, the world’s renewable crash test dummies, have just overwhelmingly rated affordability and reliability of supply as more important than tackling climate change in an online survey – but they still want their green energy revolution.
Your Say survey finds South Australians rank power bills, supply over tackling climate change
Paul Starick, Sunday Mail (SA)
December 9, 2017 5:30pm
SOUTH Australians are abandoning support for tackling climate change by cutting carbon emissions in favour of demanding affordable and reliable electricity supply and developing a renewable energy industry.
In agenda-setting results on a cornerstone issue for the March state election, more than 3500 respondents overwhelmingly ranked affordability and reliability as the most important components of electricity supply in the Sunday Mail Your Say, SA survey.
Forging a renewable energy industry was also popular among respondents, demonstrating support for solar, wind and batteries.

DIESEL generators hooked up to energy networks in Australian states with a heavy reliance on “green” energy as part of a last-ditch effort to keep the lights on this summer!
SO, climate theory obsessed politicians blow up and decommission baseload “dirty” fossil-fuel power stations, to stop bad weather, and replace them with “dirty” fossil-fuel diesel generators to stop blackouts!
YOU literally can’t make up this unreliable-energy-insanity stuff up anymore.
AND the further cost to taxpayers already skyrocketing power bills!!
Australia’s ludicrous attempt to run on sunshine and breezes sometimes reads like the farcical plot of an episode of Blackadder or Fawlty Towers.
In a ‘you couldn’t make this up if you tried’ moment, Australia’s ‘greenest’ States, Victoria and South Australia (which has been forced to wear its mantle as ‘Australia’s wind power capital’, more like a crown of thorns), have been reduced to running on diesel generators.
Consumers set to cop cost of diesel back-up
14 November 2017
Victorian consumers could foot the bill for a summer energy plan using diesel generators as a stopgap during periods of peak demand.
In an about-face by the Andrews government, diesel generators will pump up to 100 megawatts of power into Victoria’s energy grid as back-up in case of extreme heatwaves this summer.
The plan by the Australian Energy Market Operator…

Energy Security Australia – McCrann: Prime Minister Turnbull’s Electricity Plan Will Fry The LiberalsPosted: October 22, 2017
ONE of the great political parties of the world – the (once-conservative) Liberal Party, destroyed by a globalist, hard-Left, climate zealot PM – Malcolm Turnbull…
By Andrew Bolt ~
This recently released policy for the ongoing security of electrical power generation here in Australia is drawing criticism from virtually every quarter, and that reflects back onto the Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull. Where you see the word ‘Liberal’ here, this refers to the Major Coalition partner in the Australian Government, The Liberal party of Australia, and that party is the largest political party from the Conservative side of the political fence here in Australia…..TonyfromOz.
Australia’s Minister For The Environment And Energy Josh Frydenberg And Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull
(Andrew Bolt continues)
Malcolm Turnbull and Josh Frydenberg have made a deliberate decision to lose the next election and to lose it badly. The rest of the joint party room voted to endorse the decision, an indeterminate number of Liberal and National members voting for an early retirement.
This is the irresistible and even more…

“I don’t believe in conspiracies of silence except when it comes to Harvey Weinstein and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.”
“…the Bureau can give us a hottest winter on record, even when there are record snow dumps in the Alps, and record numbers of frosts on the flats.”
BOMBSHELL report from the ever-persistent pit bull down under, Dr Jennifer Marohasy, exposing yet more fraudulent warming bias from Australia’s corrupt Bureau of Meteorology…
More hot days — or “purpose-designed” temperature sensors at play?
I don’t believe in conspiracies of silence except when it comes to Harvey Weinstein and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.
For some time, weather enthusiasts have been noticing rapid temperature fluctuations at the ‘latest observations’ page at the Bureau’s website. For example, Peter Cornish, a retired hydrologist, wrote to the Bureau on 17 December 2012 asking whether the 1.5 degrees Celsius drop in temperature in the space of one minute at Sydney’s Observatory Hill, just the day before, could be a quirk of the new electronic temperature sensors. Ken Stewart, a retired school principal, requested temperature data for Hervey Bay after noticing a 2.1 degrees Celsius temperature change in the space of one minute on 22 February 2017.
In both cases, the Bureau assured…

“Mainstream politicians who put the green religion ahead of constituents struggling to feed their families, like the green leaning socialists currently presiding over South Australia’s misery, will have an increasingly difficult time winning elections in Australia.”
AUSTRALIA’S unreliable-energy crisis – entirely man-made, by climate theory-obsessed politicians from both sides of the aisle and a compliant mainstream media.
WATCH the rise of the true conservative parties at the next election – Pauline Hanson’s “One Nation” and especially, Cory Bernardi’s “Australian Conservatives”.

Power prices in the Australian Renewable Energy Paradise of South Australia have driven 102,000 South Australians to beg for help from food charities, according to a major South Australian Newspaper.
More than 102,000 South Australians seeking food donations, forced to skip meals to pay bills
Liz Walsh, Sheradyn Holderhead, The Advertiser
October 15, 2017 11:31pm
MORE than 102,000 South Australians seek help from food charity Foodbank every month, as parents skip meals for days on end so children can eat and utility bills can be paid, astonishing figures show.
About one quarter — or 26,877 — of those seeking food assistance are children.
The alarming figures have been released today in Foodbank’s 2017 Hunger Report, which also shows that demand from South Australians needing food has increased 21 per cent over the past 12 months, up from 84,847 last year and 56,000 the year before.

RET Driven Power Price Hike Bites: Cost of Australia’s Renewable Energy Madness Crushing Consumer ConfidencePosted: October 11, 2017
“The outlook isn’t encouraging either, with the full effect of higher energy bills yet to be felt,” said Capital Economics chief economist Paul Dales.”
FEAR NOT! The (inept) Turnbull Governments’ latest solution to Australia’s electricity crisis – to pay consumers for turning their AC off during summer for a $25 voucher – should save the day…and their government. Not!
More fake fixes to a fake catastrophe.
Stupidity on steroids.
Australian power consumers have just started opening their winter power bills, which are fully 20% higher than this time last year. By comparison, Australia’s underlying rate of inflation is around 1.5%.
The consequences for the economy, as a whole, are just starting to bite.
Restaurants, bars and retailers are copping it from both ends.
Business customers – often on retail power contracts with fixed prices for two or three years – are watching their power costs almost double, as they enter new contracts with prices fixed at the current rates.
And the customers who consume what these businesses hope to offer, have been forced to cut back on expenditure, simply to be in a position to pay their own rocketing power bills. Some might call it a vicious circle.
STT calls it a self-inflicted economic suicide.
Shoppers stay away as power costs bite
