Renewable energy developments

For scientific papers on AGW, record happenings in the Arctic and the Greenland, Himalayan and Antarctic icesheets. Also weatherstorms and higher than average rainfalls and other extreme weather events.

Nice to hear. I mean, you can’t turn the clock back but that never deters the Libs and their “back to the fifties” mentality:

Dan van Holst Pellekaan, the energy minister in the newly elected South Australia Liberal government, has vowed to continue the state’s dramatic energy transition and show other states “how it can be done”.

In a keynote speech to the Australian Energy Storage conference and exhibition in Adelaide on Wednesday, van Holst Pellekaan said expectations that the election of a Liberal government would be the end of clean energy in the state were false.

“We heard about the end of renewables and return to energy systems of the past,” van Holst Pellekaan said.

“The transition is underway, and the transition will continue. It is being driven by the fundamental economics of clean energy as the lowest cost new build energy source.

I would not be surprised to find that the Libs talked to the owners of the brown coal generator at Pt Augusta about restarting and were rebuffed. Be nice if the “virtual power station” went ahead.
Abbott & Co are going to cause the mother and father of all recessions—be prepared!
