How much renewable energy could we have by burning redundant politicians, 'let them eat cake' Hockey could burn for years!
On Thursday, Prime Minister Tony Abbott used primetime radio to boast about cutting clean energy, calling wind farms "visually awful" and arguing "I would frankly have liked to have reduced the number a lot more". 1
Now, his government is kicking straight into action by rescheduling a parliamentary vote for Monday morning to slash jobs and investment for Renewable Energy Target (RET).
But here's the kicker: Monday's proposed legislation won't just cut investment in clean energy. The Abbott Government wants to redefine 'clean energy' altogether, by including burning native forests in the Renewable Energy Target. A move like this could see the open slather logging of forests that our Australian wildlife depend on for survival. Just as terrible: every native forest cut down and burnt for electricity takes away from capacity and more investment in the clean energy of the future - like solar.
That's the email I received from "Get Up" today. Does this idiot realize how long a native forest tree takes to become "renewable" again? Are the animals renewable, you know the ones who shelter in trees, on trees or underneath trees? Does this troll of a politician know how much carbon trees take in and oxygen put out for us to breathe? Does this entire political party have a brain cell between them that can estimate the damage of trees burnt and sold as "renewable" energy? Well, the way the Mad Monk obviously sees it, most of the liberal (I refuse them a Capital) party have been living in the shadow of wind farms and have been permanently damaged by it.
Oh, here's a clue. Let's build solar reflecting panel farms in our famous red and flaming hot centre. Too expensive or you don't know what they are? It's a shame you don't have a Minister for Science to explain it to you. He could also explain about building wind farms in windy places because the wind is free. Never mind we'll have lots of windy places when all the trees are cut down. Perhaps the Minister for the Environment could look up "Mallee" and see what the ignorant did to that region.
Do we have a Minister for the Environment, as in for all Australia not just looking after the grounds of Parliament House and making sure no-one sneaks a wind turbine up there considering the free hot air that flows from that asylum. Oh dear, there goes another trigger word, Hello ASIO.
