Green zealots infest all parties: the media, academia, education, and the vested business interests. They consistently oppose what works and promote what won’t.
Greens demand “Zero Emissions”. Nuclear and hydro power are the only practical “zero carbon” electricity options for Australia. Greens oppose both.
Greens worship “the environment”, but support widespread environmental destruction by bird-chopping windmills, and land-stealing solar panels and their inevitable spider-webs of roads and transmission lines. All to produce intermittent energy that is forced onto distributers and consumers by legislated targets, taxes, subsidies and mandates.
Green policies support cutting forests in America to ship woodchips to UK for burning in the DRAX power station. Other policies support growing crops using diesel fuel for tractors, harvesters, and trucks to produce biodiesel with less net energy than they started with. Not smart.
Greens support carbon capture and storage, fully aware that this won’t happen without legislated subsidies, taxes and targets. They know that CCS will favour their wind and solar toys by multiplying costs and energy waste for coal, oil or gas generators. Big miners also love it because far more coal or gas will be needed to produce the same electricity.
