As Mr Mojo Risin just said: “This is the End”.
In Australia – this is the end of the greatest economic and environmental fraud ever committed on a Nation.
After a decade of lording it over ordinary Australians – you know, the ones who can no longer pay their crippling power bills; the ones who suffer night after merciless night from turbine generated low frequency noise and infrasound; and the 40 or so families who have abandoned homes which are no longer habitable for the same reason – the eco-fascist and greentard journos and bloggers have just been given an “ALMIGHTY BITCH SLAP”.
The Coalition’s brilliant victory on Saturday must have caught them napping. It’s as if they couldn’t or just wouldn’t see it coming.
The “grown-ups” are well and truly back in charge and have made no secret that the great “green” scam is over.
The Senate make up isn’t settled, yet, but the newcomers all come from conservative backgrounds and aren’t likely to line up with the dwindling rump of Green-Labor Senators on the big issues – like scrapping the RET.
The greentard bloggers have just worked out that the cabal that kept their favourite little rort alive has been sent packing and will play no further part in the “game”.
One of them – ruin-economy - has obviously been following STT – and posted this terror filled lament today:
Wind Energy biggest loser as Abbott sweeps to power
By Giles Parkinson on 9 September 2013
Tony Abbott was swept to power on Saturday and declared the country to be under new management and “open for business.” If it is true for any industries, it is certainly not the case for large-scale renewables.
The wind energy sector is probably the biggest and most immediate loser from this election result. It has been at a virtual standstill for months because utilities who write contracts, and the bankers who finance the projects, were mindful of a likely Coalition win, and yet another review of the large-scale renewable energy target (LRET).
That review will now take place, but will unlikely to be completed until the end of 2014, and the findings may not be known until early 2015. The Coalition certainly appears in no hurry, and unless the renewables industry can find a compromise, it will have to wait for the result. To make matters worse, the review may not be completed by the Climate Change Authority – which last year rejected the complaints of incumbent fossil fuel generators and the conservative state governments – because the Coalition now has the numbers to dump the CCA.
The election has delivered a hung parliament of a different sort, and a number of new, strongly anti-wind members to the Coalition. These include Angus Taylor in Hume and Peter Hendy in the neighbouring seat of Monaro. Taylor is the author of an ill-informed document on wind energy, and Hendy was an advisor to Brendan Nelson when he made his fateful change of position on climate policies, and is also a former CEO of the anti-carbon price, anti-renewables Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Worse, the Senate looks potentially hostile to wind energy, now that Labor and the Greens appear to have lost their ability to block changes after June 30. The role of avowed anti-wind senators such as John Madigan, and Nick Xenophon (who nearly managed to clone himself in Saturday’s result), presents a formidable problem for the wind industry.
Zed Seselja, who may win an ACT Senate seat for the Coalition, is another anti-renewable warrior, and the opinions on wind and renewables from the remaining cast of the Senate circus is not clear. Clive Palmer could have two Senators – Glenn (the brick with eyes) Lazarus and Jacqui Lambie. While a noisy maverick, Palmer’s principal interests are coal and dinosaurs.
Family First Senator-elect Bob Day is a former member of the highly conservative HR Nicholls Society, so that is not promising. The views of the motoring, sporting, and shooting groups who may win seats is not known, possibly even by them. Madigan didn’t get elected on an anti-wind farm ticket either, but his acquired hostility may be his lasting legacy.
A further complication for the wind industry is the Coalition’s determination to hold yet another review of wind farm health impacts and its proposal to introduced “real time” wind farm monitoring, which the industry says would be expensive and useless.
Keep an eye out for Giles and people of his ilk. We are deeply concerned for them. No – we really are.
As we said of Crystal Brook’s monstrous hypocrite Dopey Dave Clarke a while back – when we predicted a solid Coalition win – make sure to keep these boys away from rope and razor blades come September.
Well September has come – and with a vengeance. These lads are not taking it at all well.
These cheery chaps are reacting in much the same way as the French Aristocrats who avoided the fervent celebrations during the first Bastille Day back in 1789. It was one party the nobility were quite keen to miss.
Cheer up lads – Hydro is THE renewable and it has a very big future – it’s only giant fans that are finished.
Viva La Revolution!
