Rise of the Cave Dwellers – Voters 2016 Election VOTE 1 Gibson Qld
Australia’s annual total emissions for the year to December 2015 are estimated to be 535.7 Mt CO2-e. This figure is the third lowest emissions level since the year to December 2000. It is also 2.5 per cent below emissions in the year to December 2000 (549.6 Mt CO2-e), and 9.5% below emissions in the year to December 2005 (591.9 Mt CO2-e).(ref)
Australia’s population at 30 June 2012 of 22.7 million is projected to increase to between 36.8 million and 48.3 million in 2061, and reach between 42.4 million and 70.1 million in 2101. (ref)
Australian businesses and households have been subject to the conservation of energy and pollution control since the mid 1980’s and subject to “The Sky is Falling In” outcry of the stacked left wing eccentrics of the Green Movement in the United Nations. The UNFCCC like many other United Nations programs has successfully downward managed the implementation of Climate Change Policies and Regulations penetrating almost every Country, Government and Regional Authority.
Costing the World $trillions to date with absolutely no productive outcomes the show rolls on supported by greedy organisations like the IMF and World Bank just waiting to make the kill through carbon trading and the renewables programs.
The birth of the Green Movement in Australia in the forests of Nimbin by silver colored pony tailed dropouts and the paid for service scientists have got this country by the balls. Armed with political correctness and laws of discrimination there is little chance of going back to any form of rational preparedness for the introduction of strategies to reduce energy saving costs.
If we are going to have a population of 48.3 million in scarcely just over 20 odd years and we are totally dependent on renewables then we better start looking for a cave to live in because we wont have sufficient power and if we did we wont be able to afford the costs of renewable electricity which is currently 400 times more expensive than coal fired power.
I do have faith that a solution to the worlds energy needs could be just around the corner. If that was true then the chances are that implementation will take another twenty years at least. So,you academics will have already worked out that we will have to have coal fired power stations or nuclear power stations up and running NOW just to keep pace with the growing population.
Consider that tomorrow we found the most revolutionary energy generator that would cater for our needs. Well, it will be far too expensive to distribute the power to homes and businesses because we have sold off all of our power distribution asset networks. So any massive reduction in power generation costs benefits will be quickly gobbled up by the owners of the distribution networks. You have to stop and consider why have banks loaned billions of dollars to mainly foreign interests to purchase Australia’s energy distribution networks? Cause that’s where the money is to be made.
I put some figures at the beginning of this story related to carbon emissions. Here they are again
This figure is the third lowest emissions level since the year to December 2000. It is also 2.5 per cent below emissions in the year to December 2000 (549.6 Mt CO2-e), and 9.5% below emissions in the year to December 2005 (591.9 Mt CO2-e).(ref)
Great, it seems as if we have our emissions under control and are on target to meet future commitments. Terrific, but our emission commitments are made in a period when Australia is at its lowest ebb in production and manufacturing and the expected growth in our agricultural industry has barely began. To ramp up vital infrastructure and create jobs in manufacturing and agriculture to sustain a 48 million population will require more energy needs which means more emissions just to stay alive and have jobs.
Well guess what, we wont be able to ramp up anything because we will exceed our emission commitments and the likes of the UNFCCC will by then be in a legal position to stop those developments. Our commitments are also made at a time when our Federal, State and Regional Governments are stone broke.
In summary. If we dont want to live in caves then we have to dump the UN and the Greens and build more coal fired power stations.
