Everything’s Bigger in Australia (Especially the Elon Musk Con-Job)

Australia will be home to the latest renewable energy con-job: a big expensive battery created by Elon Musk and paid for by the poor long-suffering South Australian taxpayer.

Sometimes you hear it said, “everything’s big in Texas”. Well, I’m saying that if you reckon that, you ain’t been to Australia. We LOVE big things here Down Under.

We’ve got the big banana, the big redback spider, the big lobster, the big pineapple, the big potato, the big penguin, the big Ned Kelly, the big boxing crocodile, the big mango, the big gumboot, the big kangaroo, the big milk shake container, the big beercan, and perhaps my favourite, the big bogan.

I love the big Bogan, with his beer can and stubbies.

Now we’ve actually got a government in Australia sponsoring more big things.

The South Australian government led by the wild leftie Jay Weatherill has gone after a target of 50 per cent renewable energy.

Now he thinks that a big battery will solve South Australia’s energy problems.  

In reality, the big battery will only add marginal benefit.

It’s just another con-job on the poor long-suffering taxpayer.

      WHAT IS big in TEXAS is WIND & SOLAR POWER !
      THE 1st REAL competition to the ENERGY monopoly of Killer COAL and OIL in America is not only real, but already driving the cost of electric DOWN, DOWN, DOWN.
      ….and nearly 3/4ers of Republicans favor increased investments in CLEAN,
      DEPENDABLE and
      COST EFFECTIVE SOLAR AND WIND !

        Texas eh? Hahahahahahaha, even T. Boone Pickens has given up on wind energy in Texas and elsewhere, despite the windy plains he was counting on. And Elon’s battery play is mainly to provide someplace to ship all those batts he is building in that giant factory because there won’t be a market for EV when government subsidies are withdrawn in US.

    Global Warming ranks as one of the biggest deceptions since the trojan horse and a bigger con-job since Al Capones Vualts and the Hiler Diaries

      16 of the 17 WARMEST YEARS on record have occurred since 2000….
      The world has not had so much as 1 record COLD RECORD YEAR since 1909…but according to her highness, always SPURNING PLOVER says warming is a deception.

      In the 50’s,
      my family visited Montana’s Glacier National Park…
      we were thrilled by 150 GLACIERS !
      TODAY,
      at the very time NAME CALLING DENIERS SAY we are heading into a new ICE AGE…..Glaciers around the world are melting….Montana’s Glacier National has only 25 remaining glaciers…..out of 150.
      … But Bile Filled Plover says Global Warming is a DECEPTION……
      Tell Me !
      How do Glaciers around the world melt if not for warming temps.

      How does THIS WARMING PERIOD happen, when the world reached its
      inter glacial warming peak about 7500 years ago ?
      GOOGLE Holocene Optimum
      understand that for the last 7500 years we have had SLOWLY FALLING TEMPS as we slip into the next Ice Age….
      In fact, much of the last 1000 years has already been called the LITTLE ICE AGE…..
      ICE AGE—because of the cooling temps
      LITTLE—-because it ended abruptly in 1750-1850…
      WHAT force on Earth is powerful enough to end EARTH’s MOST POWERFUL NATURAL CYCLE (the ice ages) ? ? ?
      NOT ONLY END Earth’s most powerful cycle but REVERSE IT ?
      *

      The planet continues to accumulate heat.
      Humans are now pumping 135 times more CO2 into the atmosphere than ALL of the VOLCANOES on earth, COMBINED !
      1. So we see a direct line of evidence that we’re causing global warming. Human CO2 emissions far outstrip the rise in CO2 levels.

      The enhanced greenhouse effect is confirmed by satellites and many surface measurements.
      The planet’s energy imbalance is confirmed by summations of the planet’s total heat content and ocean heat measurements….”

      The CO2 enhanced greenhouse effect does explain it.

    Wind farms are built where the wind is known to blow. The best locations for wind and solar are rarely close to the demand ,ie cities. After transmission losses (resistance to current that heats the lines) over long distances, how much green energy gets to an air conditioner in Houston or a hospital in Toronto?
    Doesn’t matter to Green governments. They’ll “railroad” these expensive eyesores into our backyards until the country is just as ugly as a city. “Take paradise, put up parking lot”

      The short answer to “how much green energy gets to an air conditioner in Houston or a hospital in Toronto” is NONE. The local electricity is invariably generated locally by some ghastly burned fuel, and all these CA style renewable energy targets are usually stupid accounting tricks to play with “renewable credits” paid to solar/wind producers to offset the ghastly burning of fuel, whilst continuing to burn fuel.

    Rakooi, have you heard? The Earth’s core might contain elements conducive to fission? The Earth’s crust is cooling on the outside but not the inside. Prove me wrong.
