Peak Oil – Imposed by Nature

April 18, 2008


Video: Google Video

The problem I feel is that instead of spending countless billions on a stupid war to control the oil, they should have spent that money on putting solar panels on every building, invested in solar thermal, geothermal power, wind, tidal & wave power.

Unfortunately, the aforementioned power generation, does not lend it’s self to being controlled by an elite minority… so they persist with generating processes, which only suit a elite minority, processes such as atomic power and solar power plants in space for crying out loud.

In Australia the thing’s not oil but coal (17th century ‘technology’) and Uranium, it’s the coal and mining lobby that sets the agenda; hardly surprisingly since they paid for the politicians. After inventing some of the best solar cells, solar thermal processes etc. etc. our government’s; both the previous and the current, ignores them. Germany, with half the sun light is putting up more solar cells population percentage wise… we have one factory producing solar cells and it has to export 85% of what it makes.

Only one state in Australia, namely South Australia, pays householders twice the going rate for the excess power they produce with solar cells, how cool is that! If this was more wide spread we would not only not have to build more coal fired power stations, we could close some of them down and use the less polluting and more flexible natural gas turbines to make up the base load.

As for ‘clean’ coal and ‘safe’ Nuclear power, yeah right, they are about as certain as WMD’s in Iraq… well as I always say, “When your snout’s in the trough, the rim’s your horizon.”
