  1. True and to show you'er point Dylan singing live one of his anti Vietnam songs... then someone who could sing singing the same song... sorta like Dylan singing all along the watch tower and then Jimmy H does it and no one remembers its a Dylan song... Dylan then Joan Baez The someone who could sing...
  2. https://www.smh.com.au/business/markets/world-s-biggest-wind-farm-operator-makes-first-tilt-at-australia-20191114-p53aki.html Iberdrola, the largest wind energy producer in the world, will make its debut in the Australian market with a $500 million hybrid solar and wind farm planned for South Australia. The 320 megawatt plant, to be built near Adelaide, would be operational by 2021, and is part of a 650MW plan for wind and solar investments planned for South Australia and Queensland, the company said. Xabier Viteri, Iberdrola's director of renewable energy, said that while clean energy had increased its share of the Australia market considerably there remains "tremendous potential for further growth". "Like a lot of countries, we see increasing demand from the public and businesses for their energy to come from clean sources," he said. "When you have that demand, coupled with abundant natural resources for high-performance wind and solar, it creates a highly attractive market to invest in." The company said it was aware of existing grid constraints in some parts of Australia following a rush of wind and solar projects in recent years at the Renewable Energy Target to 2020 gets fulfilled. Under the plan, some 33,000 gigawatt-hours of new renewable energy - excluding for instance the original Snowy Hydro scheme - must be sourced from clean energy sources each year from the end of next year. However, Iberdrola is confident there is sufficient capacity for the firm's initial pipeline of projects that will fall outside the RET, a spokesman said. Spanish-based Iberdrola has operations in Spain, Germany, France, the UK, Portugal, the USA, Mexico and Brazil.

  5. Opinion .... I guess most on this forum would know where I stand on Climate Change... but as I have often small I am to the right of centre ... The issue we have is that Climate Change has been turned political first by the left and then by the right... Meaning the National Party leader plays to a support base akin to Trump with his eye looking over his shoulder to One Nation and the Katter Party... WE HAVE to get away from arguing Climate Change as political issue in fact the seats where the strongest support for Climate Change are often seats like Manly & East Sydney both of which are Liberal heart land seats. WE HAVE to argue the science and constantly break away from it being a Labour / Green V Libs / National / One Nation debate otherwise we never win. I have reached a strange place... that people that support the non Climate Change are almost in a cult and the more they are argued with and the more evidence they receive the more they harden their resolve they see it as a combination of fake news, and the left wing gone mad.... What hurts is every left wing policy is draw in ... so years of no back burning can be used to explain why the bush fires are so bad... There is no way of arguing Climate Change by attacking the Libs or National party they actually use it to stay in power. The answer is to simply argue the science ... and in a way that does not attack ordinary people ... an example and not related to Climate Change is those people who go on farms to save a pig and they some how get attached to the Climate Change debate... the right is unbelievably clever in taking something like going on to a farm and taking a pig as teh same people who argue Climate Change. Rudd, Turnbull both tried but the climate deniers crushed both of them ... IMO the answer is to better present the science ... Tonight on Q & A I believe there could be a great debate on it if allowed to stay off the left / right issues... Over for now...
  6. After a survey I read about the Roar that had Fox subscription as 47% and Fox Go, Kayo & Telstra as 53% I set up some polls on the Mariners, MV & WSW forums. Am still waiting SFC, & Jerks forum approvals to join their forums so I can do the polls But to date and not counting Optus or the ABC just subscriptions as we are bombarded with Fox rating decline... So over MV, Mariners & WSW and 85 votes this is the result Fox main sub = 35% Fox Kayo ==== 37% Fox Go ===== 16 % Tetstra ===== 12 % Its interesting and even if the numbers are small the Roar figure was over 300 people I believe, it illustrates the panic about ratings being half what they were, fails to look at teh changing viewing patterns. Not sure TBH what it all means but simply not accepting Fox / News propaganda and agenda setting articles..
  7. Interesting from Obama and a bit I read today.... sorta coming out of Blinky's Bill failure... The left will continue to keep conservative governments in power until they learn how to listen to mainstream middle and working-class people instead of constantly condemning them for not agreeing with every last wailing woke warrior.

  9. One day an old German Shepherd starts chasing rabbits and before long, discovers that he's lost. Wandering about, he notices a panther heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch. The old German Shepherd thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep doo-doo now!" Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the panther is about to leap, the old German Shepherd exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious panther! I wonder, if there are any more around here?" Hearing this, the young panther halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. "Whew!," says the panther, "That was close! That old German Shepherd nearly had me!" Meanwhile, a squirrel who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the panther. So, off he goes. The squirrel soon catches up with the panther, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the panther. The young panther is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here, squirrel, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine!" Now, the old German Shepherd sees the panther coming with the squirrel on his back and thinks, "What am I going to do now?," but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old German Shepherd says... "Where's that squirrel? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another panther!" Moral of this story... Don't mess with the old dogs... Age and skill will always overcome youth and treachery! BS and brilliance only come with age and experience.
