  1. Shamelessly stolen from the Pictures/1000 word thread. Thanks to Badlatitude:

    Brexit, and all it entails

    ......... And Putin must be laughing his socks off. Second best overseas investment he ever made?

    Brexit, and all it entails

    Apparently yes. Although I seem to recall the British pubic were told at the time of the original notification that it was irrevocable: https://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/europe/brexit-uk-can-revoke-article-50-european-court-rules-1.3726021 Regardless of what happens with Theresa May, there is no chance of a negotiated exit. No time for anything else, only the choice between a hard exit or revocation, which will put the UK in the EC back row. Would you trust a partner that demands a divorce, tells you that you are unreasonable and horrible, negotiates a settlement which they then reject and then say, sorry, it was all a big mistake. Please take me back again??? The Brexit hard liners will get what they always wanted without taking responsibility.... A hard exit.

    let's shut the government

    Now, here is a wall that I reckon the Mexicans would be glad to pay for:

    Pelosi makes clear, politics matters, America doesn't

    Can you imagine Trump theatening the Mexicans with the shut down of US government if they don’t pay up? That would be Pelosi’s fault too?

    Oh, Mitchka, Say It Ain't So

    It would be interesting to know how many Republicans received NRA laundered Russian money in the 2016 elections.... All of them?

    Oh, Mitchka, Say It Ain't So

    NRA Campaign Donations Down 90% The Russians have stopped donations to the NRA? And if I were a betting man, I would put money on Paul Ryan having his hand in the Russian till as well? Isn’t he suddenly quietly retiring from politics? There has to be a reason why the GOP hierarchy allowed such a toxic loathsome individual to become their presidential candidate. Follow the money.

  11. Where there is a will, there is a way: https://www.afr.com/business/energy/electricity/sanjeev-gupta-steps-up-137b-renewable-energy-build-near-whyalla-steelworks-20180815-h13zcc Where there is no will........
  12. So why postulate coal? Which has the added (potential) risk of Climate Change.... Watch this space........
  13. In which case America should have (naturally) moved on long ago..... PV and wind are much cheaper power sources and even base load and grid stability can be easily dealt with in a country which has much more water and altitude than Australia: http://www.anu.edu.au/news/all-news/anu-finds-22000-potential-pumped-hydro-sites-in-australia All any government has to do is legislate that new renewable energy sites must provide non coal base load and grid stability back up to go with it, on site or elsewhere, even if it has to be batteries: https://www.msn.com/en-au/news/australia/sa-battery-technology-hugely-scalable/ar-BBQvw3a?ocid=spartandhp The market will do the rest. The reason it hasn’t happened is purely vested short term economic and political interests. Putting aside Climate Change, how long do you think coal will really last with ever increasing global demand and how long does it take for coal to renew itself? Same goes for other fossil fuels.
