Subject: Letter to Editor -
Didn't know whether to laugh or cry when I read
your article 'EPA set to issue health warning on carbon
dioxide' (AFR 20 Feb). How about a health warning on water vapour, or
When I came to the paragraph near the end of the
article 'A major challenge for renewable energy producers is how to
efficiently store the often-transient power harnessed from the sun in
daytime and the wind on gusty days' I knew the reporter either had his
tongue in his cheek or his foot in his mouth.
The real problem with these 'renewables' is not how
to store energy, but when there is no power to store - rainy days, gloomy
days, smoke from bushfires, dust from volcanic eruptions (yes folks, there
are volcanoes still erupting in the southern hemisphere) can neutralise
solar cells, and the wind doesn't always blow when you need it.
Life on Earth depends on this wonderful gas called
carbon dioxide. Where is the evidence that it is harmful in concentrations
even two or more times those existing now? What is the mechanism its
detractors claim can cause global warming? Water vapour is the principal
'greenhouse gas' by a huge factor.
The 'global warming' industry is perpetrating the
greatest scam in the history of mankind. Do we have to destroy our
Australian economy by imposing emissions trading, or caps, or taxing carbon
dioxide, while the emerging economies smile in the sidelines and happily buy
out our resources at fire sale prices?
