    This bill has a solid foundation of stupidity backed with the usual utopian self-righteous ambition. Australia will, of course, continue to export coal and gas – in 2021-22 coal exports were $97 billion and gas $83 billion. The government justifies this hypocrisy because Australian coal is “cleaner” than Indonesian, Indian and Chinese coal.In 1990 coal accounted for 37% of world electricity production. Thirty years later it accounts for 38%.

    Currently, batteries deployed worldwide could support 1 minute and 15 seconds of global average electricity consumption. Electricity from renewables will cost about three times more than that from coal because they will still require base load backup. The projected deployment of batteries by 2030 will increase storage to almost 12 minutes of average global consumption.

    The only long term solution to the carbon problem is nuclear power but there is not a politician anywhere that wants to talk nuclear. They and corporate leaders do, of course, love virtue-signalling with their claims to be saving the world from climate catastrophe. Any meteorologist will tell you that a 24 hour weather forecast is good, a 3-5 day forecast is reasonable but more than a week is not reliable yet anyone who questions our ability to forecast climate in 30-80 years is derided as a climate change denier. I guess we are going to find out the hard way.
