The closing of Australia’s biggest coal-fired electricity plant is getting publicity on the other side of the planet, but the Australian Government isn’t saying anything. Mind you, they are currently running Tax Payer funded Political Campaign Ads illegally, telling us their policy (plan) is to be Carbon Neutral by 2050. Morrison doesn’t lie does he?!! He just refuses to sign any agreement validating a LN-P committment to a “Promise”;
Coal supplies the world with about 800 gigwatts of its electricity, and if all those coal plants were suddenly shut down and replaced with wind-solar-battery, the world would save $3 billion a year in electricity costs plus make the planet substantially healthier. In the last week of December, the state of South Australia, about as populous as West Virginia, which lies just to the west of New South Wales, generated all its electricity for seven days in a row from wind and solar. Tesla built a megabattery for South Australia and is making one for Victoria, as well. There’s a new boss in town, and it is wind-solar-battery. Coal will just have to get out of the way.
