Australia is nuts in agreeing to adopt Net Zero : Comments

By Brendan O'Reilly, published 13/1/2022

The political choice now seems to be between Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Zero CO2 emissions, almost by definition, is an impossible target.

Six months ago the ruling class and their flying-monkey adherents also believed in zero covid. Then they got smacked around the ear by reality and now pretend that zero covid was never a consideration.

It'll take longer but reality will also smack these dills fair in the face as regards zero emissions. And they'll drop it with equal alacrity. And then pretend they never fell for it.

It is telling that nobody has expressed an opinion that Net Zero has any chance of being achieved.

Unless our politicians have an opposite view, then tens of billions are about to be wasted.

UN Net Zero is just another scam for the eight billion humans to greenwash their endless economic growth and relentless war on the environment.

Ironically, this unscientific concept developed by greedy economists, but UN's Christiana Figueres and other green activists at a 2013 love-in:

Net Zero? Too easy if we transition to nuclear power as the old coal-fired power stations are decommissioned. And then replace all current energy exports with almost unimaginable raw electric power transmitted to our customer base via, Superconductor graphene cored, undersea cables!

To believe otherwise? Patently witless, airhead, echo-chamber, fools errand, thinking?

Can we afford the above proposed solution?

Well yes, always providing we accept a role as the world's premier repository for nuclear waste, we are paid annual millions to take and store!

But only after we have extracted thousands of years worth of virtually free energy still locked up in the stuff and only needing the application of MSR to extract!

Energy so cheap, that will allow us to manufacture absolutely anything here, all while exporting a monumentally massive surplus to an energy starved world! And should that energy paradigm be accompanied By genuine tax reform? Have the multinational manufacturing queuing to relocate all their activities here!

Even more so if we also invest in a nuclear powered fleet of submersible, cargo carrying vessels we own and operate to ensure allow us to compete and beat all-comers

Moreover, we will still need to mine some coal for High Carbon products or extraction of useful gas we can use in ceramic fuel cells as an alternative environmentally friendly, locally produced, import replacing, fuel.

Net zero clowns are off with the fairies however if in the right camp there is big money to be made. ( I just cant work out how to get there)
No one ever shows the dollar value to mine, produce and set up wind towers or solar cells which in a few years will be out of date and require massive holes to bury them. The useless media never show the facts of life.
