It’s time to leave
It has been said before Clexit, Climate Exit, let’s get on with it.
Change the story, change the course of history.
Recall the trajectory of significant new ideas. First they are dismissed as heretical, then they become controversial and next thing they are old hat. Or it goes: unthinkable, interesting and exciting, then “everyone knows that already.”
So say out loud, Net Zero is impossible, it is catastrophic for the environment, for modern industries, the economy, and household budgets.
Distribute simple facts
Start with wind literacy. When enough people check the NemWatch widget regularly, especially at breakfast and dinnertime, we will be on the way.
This morning, Friday 11 at 7.00 wind provided 7% of power across the NEM at CF 18%.
In SA, the wind-leader, it was providing 9% at CF 5%. gas 68%, diesel 15% and battery 7%.
Three critical things about the power supply.
1, Input to the grid must be continuous.
2. Windless nights break the continuity of wind and solar input.
3, There is no feasible and affordable storage in sight to bridge the gaps.
And so we will have to keep burning coal until nuclear is running, or burn gas at crippling expense.
If we knew 25 years ago what we know now about wind droughts the RE ponzi scheme could have been aborted before it started. Anton Lang and Paul Miskelly warned up over a decade ago but who took any notice?
One more thing, explain that the low points of supply kill the system, so looking at the lows points of wind and solar supply is not cherry-picking, it is due dilgence.
