Heads up for Flickerpower!

Flickerpower is launched! This supersedes the temporary residence of the Energy Realists at RiteOn. The site is still a work in progress so don’t take any notice of the other material that is placeholding for proper content, the sharp edge is the list of Briefing Notes.

There are more notes to come, and there will be a continuous stream up to the election and maybe after that, depending on the energy and longevity of the team members.

These notes will be a handy resource for the candidates of the United Australia (Palmer) Party and others who are committed to commonsense in energy policy. We want the message of energy realism to travel through these candidates and their support teams to penetrate the grassroots of the electorate. People need to know things that the ABC and mainstream media are keeping secret, like the full-blown energy crisis that is blowing up in Europe and especially Britain.

A massive amount of energy has been expended by climate realists over the last few decades and that battle has been lost in the public debate because everybody (including me) has decided that they know all that they need to know about climate science and they don’t want to be told any more. In contrast, the key issues in energy can be explained to school students if they can be persuaded to pay attention for a short time. The evidence of wind droughts is clear, the “hole in the flood levee” principle is not hard to explain and also, with a bit more effort, we can explain why pumped hydro and batteries are a silly joke so far as grid-scale storage is concerned.

    Your work isn’t wasted on me Rafe. Getting it in front of people who lack any reasoning power, well that’s a lot harder.

    Thank you Rafe — you are doing God’s work and have the endearing and admirable Socratic virtue of wisdom coupled with humility – knowing that you don’t know everything there is to know about anything in particular. Cheers

    Does it deserve an entry in the Blog roll?

    Look forward to reading. I would also love to see more material on the opportunity cost of this folly to provide politicians with some leverage. For example the Federal and State governments spent x billion dollars last year on trying to change the climate which is clearly not working as they say the temperature is still rising. Imagine if all this money was spent on age care, hospitals, education etc. here is what we could achieve. Provide concrete examples. Just a thought.
