Warming fail: dud desal plant needs diesel | Herald Sun

Silent Majority …

@Jim @kev of Tas @Philip

More one track thinking from AGW supporters. A logical position for them to take would be to build more dams for when the AGW “extreme weather” produces an “extreme wet”. But no, building dams would be an admission that they just might be wrong and it might rain enough to fill it.

Better to deny that it will ever rain enough again and build a desal plant to produce liquid electricity. I’m not sure what they do with all the salt extracted from the sea water but at least we will have plenty to put on our fish and chips.

Warming fail: dud desal plant needs diesel | Herald Sun

And now Victoria’s desalination plant needs diesel generators:

The Herald Sun can reveal Aquasure has been forced to find a back-up electricity source for the Wonthaggi plant amid ongoing concerns of a major power cable fault…

The Herald Sun understands about 30 containers are being delivered to set up the multi-generator power system, which would use about 150,000 litres of diesel a day.

But the rains returned, the dams filled, the plant is mothballed and now 30 diesel generators have been ordered to power it.

Another Q&A stitch-up | Herald Sun

 As I said: why would a conservative go on the ABC’s Q&A to be stitched up – patronised by the host, sneered at by a stacked panel and jeered by a carefully curated audience?

Abbott to Turnbull: move into Kirribilli, crack down on spending | Herald Sun

Tony Abbott on The Bolt Report tonight gave Malcolm Turnbull very personal advice: move into Kirribilli House and save taxpayers $3 million a year, be tougher on public service pay, scrap your renewable energy target, and stop this drift to defeat. And, yes, that is a people swap.

Peter …

How about this: Malcolm to stay where he is and better performing new PM to move into Kirribilli. Two problems solved.
