It's also phenomenally inefficient. The reason you have a grid - with large, centralised and flexible/controllable generation - is because of diversity of load. Local generation is fine to offset some of a homeowner's electricity bills (though the payoff is still in the 8-10 year range - e.g. $6k for a solar HW system versus $1.5k for electric or gas is a lot of fucking bills to make up the difference) but it also causes issues such as voltage rise for a grid that was only ever designed to be one way - generator-to-consumer, not consumer-to-grid.

As for the 30% of homes figure, I am assuming that is houses only. In the cities, most people live in apartments. Where exactly you put your solar panels if you live in a flat? And who pays for it if you rent? Renters won't spend $'000s on a solar set up, nor will landlords install them when it's the tenants who reap the benefits via cheaper power costs. Distributed solar generation really only benefits relatively wealthy homeowners who can afford houses in the inner city (it makes more sense in the country as many homes aren't connected to the grid or town gas in the first place).

Chiefly it seems to be for champagne inner city socialists with multi million $ homes who like to virtue signal with their solar/battery setups (all of which, as The Shooman The Shooman notes is made in the good ole PRC), when they would be better off running their Priuses off the smell of their own farts.

Before fxh chimes in here - I actually have papers published on this topic. So I guess take my POV with a grain of salt.


Yes, there are lots of papers and numbers which blow all the green arguments out of the water; but facts don't matter, rhetoric and feelings matter. The news media love filling people's heads with delusions that the world is going to be phasing out coal and using solar and wind power instead, but it is not. The numbers don't add up. Do you know how many batteries are needed to store all that solar power to run an economy, and do you know how much that is going to cost? The numbers have been done, and fortunately it is the impossible dream. The globalists are promising dreams on technology that hasn't even been invented yet, and by the looks of it the trend is turning against this madness with Europe waking up and going back to coal.

Decimate the private business through high energy costs and then have the World Economic Forum and U.N run the show with China leading the way. Oh look, the WEF is already giving us some hints "Does capitalism need some Marxism to survive the Fourth Industrial Revolution?"



"You will own nothing, and you will be happy". You will rent from the global government.

All the globalists and socialists love the green revolution, and they love technology and artificial intelligence. Easier to watch over the people and give orders when everything is managing under a global system. The green movement will force everyone to comply. Eventually they'll have to force everyone out of houses and into apartments along railway lines because it will be more environmentally efficient. These globalists own the media and schools, so they can should be able to scam humans into doing anything, BUT they have a problem...the world still has a functioning democracy, and humans will fight back when their wallets start hurting and their power goes out - this is already starting to happen. The globalists pushing this green rubbish are toast.

No they don't.
I can't actually find stats on number of people by dwelling type, but in Sydney about 45% - a significant minority - of dwellings are apartments or terraces etc. where you would struggle to mount a solar PV array, put it that way. Add to that the people that live in houses but rent them (let's say the average of 30% - probably higher in the cities) and you'll find that the majority of people aren't in a position to have solar power installed in their dwelling either due to their physical or financial circumstances.

If households can't afford to pay for the changes, force the little people to take out a loan. If they need to take on an extra job, no big deal.


"Mike Cannon-Brookes’ investment vehicle Grok Ventures .......... has suggested the company offer loans of up to $100,000 to customers to electrify their homes"

When those globalists give the orders those little guys need to comply.

All I know is Melbourne is mega urbanised with single story buildings and most people own or have a mortgage on the place they live. No comment on the feasibility of panels or their place in the new world order.

Woman shouts ‘I still love sharks’ as she's taken to hospital after getting bitten while swimming​

Swimmer is in a stable condition​


‘I still love sharks’ says woman attacked by shark

A woman bitten by a shark in Australia declared “I still love sharks” as she was taken to hospital for treatment.
Queensland Ambulance Service said it responded to reports that a woman in her 20s had been bitten while swimming off the coast of Fitzroy Island, near Cairns, Queensland, at around 12.10pm on Tuesday.

Bystanders applied first aid at the scene, the service added. The woman, who has not been named, suffered “significant injuries” and was airlifted to Cairns Hospital where her condition is said to be stable.

It is understood the woman was making a documentary about sharks when she was bitten at the popular holiday destination, off Queensland’s northeastern coast.

she seems nice
Gina is a meme. That's a very old article... she literally hasn't been sighted since.

I mean, she's a Sandgroper so possible she's been out and about but like the rest of them no one else in Australia noticed.



Stay safe out there kids
Yeah, why the fuck did we bother to lockdown for 2 years again?

I once played golf at Gundagai back in the day when the coarse was probably the worst in the world. Dirt greens and long grass for the fareways. Like playing in the scrub. Lost so many balls...about one or two balls each hole.

It is amazing how pre-historic crocs are. Here he bites down on a watermelon and smashes it to bits.



This is not in Australia, but Hippos always amaze me too. So ancient looking. Here the hippo eats a watermelon, and he likes it.

You forgot the grand daddy of them all - Coober Pedy:

i


It's the only golf course in the world where members have reciprocal rights with St Andrews.

'As far as anyone knows, no one from St. Andrews has ever played Opal Fields, where locals live in caves and often play at night to escape the 110-degree heat. Kelly knows of only one Coober Pedestrian to have played St. Andrews. Traveling in Scotland a few years ago "with some mates," the Opal Fields member "marched right into the pro shop and said, 'I'm from Coober Pedy and I have reciprocal rights!' The poor guy at the desk went ashen." But he rang up [St. Andrews' then-general manager, Alan] McGregor, who did the Aussies right. They got onto the Old Course.'

That's Elvis. He's a bit of a local celebrity, though his reflexes aren't what they used to be. No one's lost an arm feeding him for quite a few years now.

Doesn't the sand wreck the clubs?
Don't be silly. Even in Hollyweird, Ms Debicki is a rarity. She is striking.
Striking face indeed.

Plenty of Private Schoolgirls look like that

There is definitely an ‘old boy/old girl’ look that you can spot a mile away.

I drove my kids through the old school last month (had to move fast, before someone stopped us and hit me up for a donation!) since they were on hols. The move to inclusivity and diversity, science and technology, away from manliness and stoicism, cadets and rugby was apparent. But also the cost! Back in the 1980s, you needed to know someone to get admitted, but most middle class families could afford the $3k per year in fees. Now it is ten times that.
