Re: Wind power in South Australia

You missed an important fact, it was 23 275kv towers in the backbone of the grid.

As a resident of SA I'm sick to death of the rubbish anti renewables nuts have said about this failure,

the real blame belongs to the Liberal govt who privatised our ETSA power provider years ago.

We pay a lot for our power lines as the distribution suppliers said they had installed a "gold plated" network.

All they did was squib on maintenance, and directly cause this failure.

Sorry to disturb the echo chamber.

Re: OMG Zombie keeps rising @ btrower

Climate denial, creationists, anti vaxxers, all use the same techniques you do. The facts are so plain that AGW

happens it takes a fool of epic proportions to believe otherwise. Unfortunately there is no shortage of them here on ELReg.

Re: OMG Zombie keeps rising

The zombies are those that ignore the science and push the oil company propaganda, much like yourself.

The deniers are the ones acting like a religion. They use the same tactics as creationsist and anti-vaxxers, the laughable claim that the climate scientists are all corrupt and in league with the rich to make money, if it wasnt so important it would be funny. All they ever do is rely on a circle jerk of citations from other denialists to "prove their claim".

Are so religious in their fervour they will ignore the many problems. The iphone 4S i have is the worst mobile phone I have ever owned. Poor battery Life, mysterious intermittent loss of entries in contacts file, personal hotspot that disappears erratically.

Iranian nuke plants rocked in midnight 'heavy metal blast'

WTF?

Re: David Webb

Hers a few facts for ya Mike B,

number of countries bombed by Iran since WW2 only Iraq who started the war.

Number of countries bombed by the US 20.

Number of countries invaded by Iran-none

Number of countries invaded by the US, 5.

Iran has every right to nuclear weapons as they have proved themselves a largely peaceful nation who doesnt start wars. The US has proved to be a nation of evil killers.

Just because you say that bombing Japan saved lives doesn't mean its true, and by dropping the bombs in the sea near cities much the same goal could have been achieved.

Spot on guys

I have just started doing live sound engineering again after a long break. I hate the modern trend to have compression on the compression. WHen mixing live I use the minimum possible compression, and people at gigs have been coming up to me and saying, "Thats the best sound I have heard here in years" There is not one digital device in the signal chain.

People get used to the quality they listen to regularly, and the relatively poor sound of MP3 makes a live band thru a cranking all analog system sound awesome to them. Its a bit like hammond organ/leslie simulator, they can sound really impressive on their own, but when put up against the real thing, there is no comparison. The way the Leslie effects the air in a room is impossible to simulate. Good to see so many well informed posts here too!

Yawn-why bother with denialists at al man

I didnt even bother to read the article one knows exactly the kind of stuff AO will write. No longer even bother debating the denialists any moreeither, they behave just like creationists and anti vaccine, in that they are not experts and try and discredit the real experts because the facts dont agree with their world view. Then when their laughable claims are debunked they just move the goal posts to another bit of shameless rubbish.

Brilliant post !

The best bit about all this though is the very same tactic used by climate deniers to discredit expert scientists can now be used as a response to the nuke fans, who mainly seem to be in the sceptic camp.

Hmm

I have to admit to a brief grin when the safely shutdown reastors went BOOM and blew their buildings apart.

Lets start a fund to send Lewis to Fukushima to fix the problem by himself, he wont need any protective clothing or anything.

Yawn.

Despite the irrelevant ranting of the likes of Page the public is too smart to allow nuclear power to expand after this disaster. The sight of the likes of Page desperatley spinning this disaster as a positive is funny as hell. They are so desperate to defend the indefensible.

Better still they no longer trust the scientists, ironically because of the outrageous campaign to discredit science by the climate sceptics. Hoisted by thier own petard somewhat.

Nuke is finished Lewis and no ammount of factual distortion will change that!

Lovin very howl from the pro nuke brigade, now they know in their hearts it is a lost cause.

What rubbish

My parents have a 2KW solar system, and have been credited rather than billed for the last 2 quarters. The warranty is 20years so payback will be well before warranty ends.

Is there no lie Nuclear shills on ELReg which is infected with them will go to deny reality.

Page has simply misled and misrepresented repeatedly about this incident. He has as much credibility as Mickey Mouse on this issue.

Luckily our population is too smart to fall for the nuclear industries propaganda

42

Laugh a minute

Regular readers know all about ElRegs loose connection with the truth when it comes to the environment.

Watching the nuclear shills desperately trying to recover the lost gains of public approval over the last 20 years, by trying to minimise this disaster is fun fun fun.

Luckily the general pulic shows far more wisdom than supposedly intelligent ElReg readers and will take a lot of convincing to allow any more Nuclear reactors to be built.

Now you can all jump up and down, make up "facts" like Lewis does, but the bulk of people will be put off Nuclear for a long time.

Regardless of Pge's damage control spin, the nuclear industry is dead is western countries and that is great!

No Nuke FTW!
