Finkel Report Fails Science, Fails Consumers, and Fails Australia

Monday, July 17, 2017 7:04
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Dr Finkel, grandly titled as “Australia’s Chief Scientist”, was paid by tax payers to produce A Review into the Future Security of the National Electricity Market.

This report has been studied and is rated “FAIL”.

It Fails in Science
It Fails Electricity Consumers
It Fails Australia

But Green Energy Promotors are Delighted.

Substantiation of this “FAIL” assessment can be found here in this magnificent Open Letter by Dr Michael Crawford.

The Fakel Report: Finkel’s Fake Economics

Electricity Hopes Lost:

As Australian Engineer, Bob Brock, puts it clearly: “the solution to Australia’s growing energy crisis is blindingly simple:

1. Defer until 2030 the implementation of the UN Climate Agreement.

2. Cancel all Renewable Emissions Targets (RETs) and Clean Energy Targets (CETs).

3. Cancel all Federal subsidies for Renewable Energy.

4. Advocate 99.98% availability targets for all energy suppliers to ensure reliability of supply.

5. Advocate building only traditional coal-fired power stations in the future for base load.

6. Do not support the use of gas as a base-load fuel as it is more expensive than coal.

7. Do not advocate High Efficiency Low Emission (HELE) power stations unless the economics justify their more expensive construction costs. The extra CO2 that conventional coal-fired power stations emit is neither dirty nor a pollutant – despite advice from the Green Coalition which dominates the Labor, Liberal and Green Parties.

8. If, in the face of scientific evidence, you still want to believe that CO2 is a problem, commit to a concurrent long term plan for developing a Nuclear Industry.

If these policies were implemented, we would not need expensive interconnecting transmission lines, or the costly, parasitic Energy Marketing Operator (States would be responsible), or PM Turnbull’s energy recycling scheme, Snowy Mk 2.0.”
