Human beings breathe air, so it’s a good thing there’s such a huge supply of it. But humans also exhale carbon dioxide, the wicked gas that even in small quantities turns gullible teens and the duller elderly into Greens voters.
@Graeme Graeme, AGL’s publicity is worded very carefully. AGL owns Loy Yang A (the second-newest brown coal PS in Victoria) plus Bayswater (the newest black coal PS in NSW) plus Liddell (an older black coal PS in NSW next door to Bayswater).
Note that the original design of the National Electricity Market disallowed retailers like AGL owning power stations as this stopped power stations competing with each other to sell electricity to retailers. As a large generator & retailer AGL can now ensure their power stations supply their customers over the long-term while independent coal power stations are sent broke by the expanding renewables scheme – pushing up prices and profits for AGL.
