Two $1.96 billion Wind farms to generate power and jobs for the Southern Downs

Wind Farm Image by  Ben Kerckx  from  Pixabay   Two wind farms and up to 400 jobs in the Southern Downs are a step closer to reality with the State Assessment and Referral Agency giving the green light. Deputy Premier and Planning Minister Steven Miles said Acciona received approval to build the $1.96 billion MacIntyre Wind Farm Precinct (the Precinct) at Cement Mills, approximately 40 kilometres south-west of Warwick. “Soon there will be 180 wind turbines in the Darling Downs South West region propelling up to 1026 megawatts of energy into Queensland’s electricity network,” Mr Miles said. “Once operational the MacIntyre Wind Farm Precinct is expected to generate enough renewable electricity to supply about 700,000 Queensland homes. “The MacIntyre Wind Farm Precinct is set to provide up to 400 local jobs during construction, with an additional 240 jobs for the construction of the 64km transmission line, and 14 full time jobs once in operation. “Acciona also expects its local spend duri

Joe Biden Invites 40 World Leaders to Leaders Summit on Climate

 Global Warming or Climate Change Today, Joe Biden invited 40 world leaders to the Leaders Summit on Climate he will host on April 22 and 23.  The virtual Leaders Summit will be live streamed for public viewing. President Biden took action his first day in office to return the United States to the Paris Agreement.  Days later, on January 27, he announced that he would soon convene a leaders summit to galvanize efforts by the major economies to tackle the climate crisis. The Leaders Summit on Climate will underscore the urgency – and the economic benefits – of stronger climate action.  It will be a key milestone on the road to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) this November in Glasgow. In recent years, scientists have underscored the need to limit planetary warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius in order to stave off the worst impacts of climate change.  A key goal of both the Leaders Summit and COP26 will be to catalyze efforts that keep that 1.5-degree goal within reach.  T

The real reason the Left wants only wind and solar energy

If a person has any science training and a cursory understanding of how we produce energy by burning coal, natural gas or oil and how we can get some energy from the sun and wind, they would quickly recognize that the nation can not trade one for the other. Yet that is exactly what the liberal democratic/socialist party plans for us. Their millions of left-wing followers, without taking time to use what ever common sense they might have, buy the plan hook line and sinker. The mistake those of us educated in the field of energy physics make is thinking the leadership of the our increasingly socialist leaders are dumb enough to think their plan will work to maintain America ’ s standard of living. In fact they and their radical environmentalist supporters know full well their plan can not work.   They know full well that  ALL ENERGY WILL HAVE TO BE RATIONED BY GOVERNMENT . That is exactly what they want. How better to control society than control the energy, electricity and fuel they are

Fauci And Chuck Todd Say More Pandemics Coming Because Of Climate Change

Fauci And Chuck Todd Say More Pandemics Coming Because Of Climate Change   Appearing on NBC News Sunday Dr Fauci and host Chuck Todd declared that more pandemics are on the way because of climate change and “the globalisation”. The pair also agreed that a ‘global health security network’ is needed going forward and that anyone planning to go back to their pre-pandemic life is being too hasty. “I know there’s a lot of folks who think that due to climate change and due to the globalization in general, it’s inevitable, we’re going to deal with more and more viruses like this,” Todd declared. Fauci responded “Let’s take global to begin with. We have to have a better global health security network of interconnectivity, of communication, of transparency.” “So that we are talking to each other all the time and know what’s going on. We also have to have a continued investment in the science,” he said, adding “remain global in our interactions. As I have said so many times, a g

Those millions of new ‘green’ jobs are going to China and India

When U.S. “Special Envoy” for Climate John Kerry recently urged workers upset by the Biden administration’s decision to scuttle the Keystone XL pipeline to “ learn to make solar panels ”, he was oblivious to the fact that  China and India dominate the solar panel manufacturing market . President Joe Biden’s  Build Back Better Recovery Plan  is to build a modern, resilient climate infrastructure that will create millions of good-paying union jobs, but Biden, like Kerry, may not be aware of America being unable to financially compete with the world’s solar panel manufacturing markets without huge government subsidies. China and India not only control the supply chain of materials for solar panels, wind turbines, and EV batteries, but also have the least stringent environmental controls for the mining of the renewable materials like lithium, cobalt, nickel, graphite, copper, and many others, and minimal labor laws for their low-cost labor supply. To meet their growing manufacturing sector

Texas freeze shuts down Power “renewable Energy Fails”

Texas is experiencing a serious deep freeze which is causing people to lose power. Texas investors larded their state with solar panels and wind turbines to rake in federal subsidies and tax credits. CFACT’s Marc Morano discussed the Texas freeze with Tucker Carlson on Fox News last night: Fox News Marc Monro and Tucker Carlson “Warren Buffett famously said years ago that there’s no reason to build windmills without the tax breaks and without the subsidies… the same thing’s happening in Germany by the way right now Tucker. Their solar panels are covered in snow and Germans are freezing through winter much the way Texans are.  Who would have thought this would have happened in Texas?  But this is what we’re dealing with. And Biden now wants to nationalize this plan of the less than four percent that comes from solar and wind and make it our chief go-to energy source.” After generations of striving, America at last achieved energy independence.  Forcing America to abandon efficient energ

Hanson Young, Under the EPBC legislation that every ten years our environment laws are reviewed

Hanson Young: Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act1999 - Consideration: I take note of this report because this is a very, very important review. It is required under the EPBC legislation that every ten years our environment laws are reviewed, that they're looked at in great detail, that experts consider whether they are fit for purpose and report to both the government and the parliament about the effect of our laws and whether they are doing what they need to do. We know that the government had this report for some 90 days before releasing it. And of course they happened—let's put this on the record—to release it right in the middle of Mr Albanese's frontbench reshuffle last week. You'd think that this government would have been a bit more courteous to not publicly release an important document like this in the middle of when other things were going on—unless, of course, this government wanted to cover up and distract from the recommendations in th

Vladimir Putin working group on climate change and sustainable development

Adviser to the President and Special Presidential Representative on Climate Issues Russian Edelgeriyev held the 33 rd  meeting of the Presidential Executive Office interdepartmental working group on climate change and sustainable development. The meeting participants discussed, in particular, creating a unified system for monitoring the emission and absorption of greenhouse gases on the territory of Russia. The development of such a system is contemplated as part of the Comprehensive Information System of Environmental Monitoring in Russia. There was also a discussion on posting information updates on the websites of federal executive authorities regarding progress in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and the work of the expert group on information and statistical support for monitoring the Sustainable Development Goals under the interdepartmental working group. The expert group has prepared a draft list of national indicators for the Sustainable Development Goals, which incl

Bill Gates carbon hypocrisy

Bill Gates was listed in 2019 as the number one carbon footprint of all the celebrities. He beat Liar Al Gore, Jennifer Lopez. He beat Bernie Sanders and a bunch of others [including] Holywood Harrison Ford. He came out number one, Bill Gates. He has a new book coming out about the climate crisis; what we can all do. He spoke to the World Economic Forum and claimed we have to change every aspect of our lives to fight global warming but Bill Gates is not willing to do it. The last estimate in 2010 he paid $30,000 a month in his electricity bill at his home. Since he...recently bought a 43 million-dollar oceanfront property, [he's] not very worried about sea-level rise apparently." Marc reports that Gates and the rest of the climate elite want us to refrain from flying unless we can come up with a "morally justifiable" reason to do so.  Of course they expect their moral justification travel visas to be permanently stamped.  "Gates just said we need to continue loc

The geothermal energy revolution

There is a revolution coming in geothermal energy. How big it will be and how fast it can grow remains to be seen, but the revolutionary technology is here now. We already know about the new technology by name — fracking. But that is fracking for oil and gas, the energy revolution we are already living on, that the greens hate. The geothermal revolution is fracking for heat. Here is the technical bit. The Earth’s crust we live on is just a thin film wrapped around an 8,000 mile diameter molten ball. In some places under the deep ocean this crust is estimated to be just 3 miles or so thick. It is somewhat thicker under the continents but the point remains; it gets hot fast as you drill down into the crust. That heat is geothermal energy. We have used geothermal energy to make electricity for a long time, but only in tiny amounts. California does the most in the US and its entire generating capacity is about the size of a single large coal fired power plant, about 3000 MW. The whole worl

Brace for nationwide blackouts under Biden

The power disaster unfolding in California will soon occur across the country, if Joe Biden gets his way. The Golden State has been sweeping away the forms of energy that have provided reliable electricity for decades, under the same agenda the former Vice-President is planning  for America as a whole . Power outages are now commonplace in California. Last summer, the state suffered its first rolling blackouts in nearly 20 years. Imagine if this happened in Chicago in the middle of winter. California’s trouble is explained by officials who now openly admit to an over-reliance on wind and solar power. The governor said there was not enough wind to keep the turbines going, while cloud cover and nightfall restricted solar power. The Los Angeles Times  recognized the root of the problem : “… gas-burning power plants that can fire up when the sun isn’t shining or the wind isn’t blowing have been shutting down in recent years, and California has largely failed to replace them …” Consequently
