Record cold but a lot of Wind and Other

Apparently many places in Eastern Australia enjoyed record minimum temperatures overnight but apparently this got as much cover on the ABC as the number of rockets launched into Israel before they retaliated.

On the upside the wind is blowing, the sun is shining and Wind and Other are delivering almost 10% of demand!

A bit pricey in SA and Victoria but.

    ABC uses solar/wind? No just runs on hypocrisy!

    And what causes these record ‘enjoyable’ minimum temperatures? All together now- GLOBAL WARMING!!!!

  3. Up The Workers!

    Do we have any reliable data on the methane recovery and recycling statistics in both Chambers of State Parliament yet?

    Surely that is a fully renewable resource – they exude so much of the stuff from one end or the other.

    Rather than a coal-fired, wind, solar panel or hydro-powered grid, we could have a viable verbal flatulence-powered grid instead. The lefties are all so full of crap, it will last longer than religion.

    That’s about the only thing you can truly rely on those mung-beaners for.

    of course, it could all be due to Brexit…. You can blame anything on Brexit… Sorry…

    The present cold spell is undoubtably caused by global warming ,the science is settled don’t argue ,its time to close down more coal and gas fired stations to comply with our orders from the u.n.communist rulers ,stop your dissent or it will go badly for you . A friendly message from the Ministry of Truth a branch of the Canberra Swampies.

    Ice Ages are always cold and dry.

    Now, now… “No Agenda, No Bias”.

    And no fat to cut, too.

    The ABC really think we’re all idiots.

  8. As an observer of plants and critters. I can tell you that it has been cold here.
    Dreading the usual cold month of August.

    Oh I’ve no idea why people keep blaming global warming on these cool changes. Everyone knows that we’ve slowly been changing over to LED lighting. Every one of you who remembers the Ettamoga Pub skits in the old Australia Post will recall that every truck had “melt tar at 50 paces” driving lights on them. So with the inevitable change to LED’s we now have insufficient heat being generated up and down the Newell to compensate for the cooler nights. Such a shame it isn’t obvious to us all. Maybe I should change my monica to Old Lamentable Me, he he.

    the ABC can treat us like idiots, so what?

    there’s no downside for them, if anyone criticises they dismiss it and attack the offender

    they really are a power unto themselves now, feeling completely entitled not only to what they get now, but much, much more

    the only way anything will change is if they do it to themselves and probably will eventually by overextending the sheer arrogance their culture is developing internally

    The cloudless, still, cold-air night demonstrated the uselessness of wind and solar for electricity generation. Thankfully, there was coal-fired base-load power for heating.

    However, if our mindless, ‘progressive’ politicians have their way, there will be no base-load power to call on in a few years time. Hardly, what you would call progress.
