Stupidity or a Con Job ……..

Australia is fast becoming a manufacturing wasteland with many business operators caving in under the exorbitant cost of energy so it’s no surprise to see them close or take their business offshore. Its plainly obvious to we lay people that governments of all persuasions either care little for this country and the hard workers who slave to keep the money flowing or don’t have the common sense or political acumen to govern. Politicians, once elected have a free pass to make foolish policy decisions, to place the country in jeopardy, to exploit interests they benefit from, to change rules

Cracked – Fractured – Broken

How else should one describe the disorder the world is experiencing and how has it reached the point of no return? Since the end of the Second World War it was hoped that peace would prevail throughout the globe and societies would embrace the opportunity to advance themselves and prosper. Fast forward to 2017 and take a snapshot of life on planet earth. It’s not what the masses envisaged.

Australia’s Energy Crisis It’s almost unbelievable that Australia is facing an unprecedented energy crisis. You may well ask who is to blame for this disastrous situation. Governments need to be held accountable for their inaction, a total lack of commitment and their irresponsibility that has led to Australia, a major exporter of coal and gas, facing this disastrous dilemma. Retail Energy prices are set to soar again and maybe by as much as 30%.  Voters want all parties to consolidate, to agree on a sensible national energy policy and to fix the problem quickly.

Watt Power Crisis?

If you owned or had a financial stake in an electricity generating plant you would be ecstatic with the current rules that govern power generation and distribution within Australia. The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO). Viewing their online marketing publications gives the public a warm secure feeling that as the video states “Our Vision – Energy Security for all Australians”. Wow! That’s great. Without being too critical of the publication of that marketing spiel on August 3 2015.  Its 2017 so what went wrong? As to be expected the power industry selloff by governments has created a ‘Profit First’
