The government has been trying to find a way to keep the lights on in states such as South Australia, Victoria and NSW as coal-fired power stations close down and more pressure is put on the network. It now wants consumers to do their part — and sign up to reduce their electricity by turning off their appliances.
Over the next three years, 10 pilot projects across the three states will pay users to reduce their electricity consumption during short periods. This is aimed at freeing up electricity supply during extreme peaks — such as summer heatwaves or during extreme weather events and blackouts. Tens of thousands of households are expected to participate in the demand response initiative in exchange for cheaper power bills.
EnergyAustralia and AGL will offer their customers the ability to sign up and those that reduce their consumption will be rewarded with money off their bill or they can get vouchers if they choose.
Residential households will have to install smart meters to measure their usage. The hardware will have optional user overrides. The pilot projects will also involve installing remote monitoring and control devices in commercial and industrial businesses — such as cold storage facilities, manufacturing plants and commercial buildings.
An AGL spokeswoman said the project was expected to harvest 20 MW of electricity from its customers, 3 MW from residential households and 17 MW from commercial and industrial customers. EnergyAustralia is expected to contribute a total of 50 MW from its program http: No heating or air conditioning for the government.
That could catch on. Rewarded by death by heatstroke? Just what certain bossy boots seem to want for us all, except themselves of course. Not on your Nellie will I power down to keep the state going , the state should have thought more before letting Hazelwood close to keep in good with the green and commie vote. Matter of fact I might just turn on every electric device I have , just as I do on earth hour.
Light up the whole large backyard with beautiful reds and blues. Sixteen wildfires rage across Northern California Guest: Homes and businesses burn as fire rips through Santa Rosa. Sunday and their causes are under investigation, officials said…. Who is starting all those wildfires?
We are By Warren Cornwall As parts of the western United States choke on smoke from wildfires scorching more than , hectares, renewed attention is falling on the role that people have played in starting some of these blazes. An Oregon fire that has consumed 13, hectares, for instance, is thought to have been started by teens tossing firecrackers.
Jennifer Balch, a wildfire ecologist at the University of Colorado in Boulder, has examined just how big a role people are playing in starting wildfires in the United States. ScienceInsider spoke with Balch about those numbers, and their implications. In a follow-up email, Balch provided a scorecard for the fire season.
The total area burned by human-started fires, she added, was about 1. News coverage of fires may promote arson, specialists warn The Portugal News Sep. Why wildfires are so common in California by Gabrielle Deabler This news story might sound familiar to you. We see similar stories every fall as California wildfires break out. A uniquely extreme dry season is the first reason the California is so prone to wildfires. Here at home — there are also fears the bushfire season could start unseasonably early after an unusually warm and dry winter.
Yesterday the Bureau of Meteorology warned that Australia is facing scorching temperatures and strong winds this summer. Tony Abbott speech excerpts…what did you think of that? Why should I boost their numbers? And why do Pippa Pig etc. Is that the average mental age of those who do watch the ABC? Over the summer, Europe was scorched by wildfires, fueled by hotter temperatures, high winds and poorly managed forest and scrubland that can often burn along roads and near villages and towns, fire experts say.
Fires continued to flare afterward with the arrival of each new hotter spell of weather…. Karoly said climate change is increasing the likelihood of weather conditions that are conducive to wildfires — namely, less rainfall and hotter temperatures.
The research agenda is comprised of around 40 separate but interconnected research projects as well as support for up to 50 PhD scholarships. His responsibilities included leadership and oversight of the research program…. Never mind the forests being extra- combustible, thanks to the minority greenies being give power way beyond what their actual numbers justify, never mind the fact that a lot of us, far from having a warmer winter have had a markedly cold and long one.
The recent rain leading to rampant growth will cause trouble from a fire point of view if we get hot dry weather. Droughts, flooding rains, bushfires…. Except that the bushfires become firestorms as in thanks to lack of cool burns and clearing…I blame all the greenie wets. Australia, as we now refer to this country, was managed by controlled seasonal fires and removal of growth that would have choked the bush and provided fuel for very hot fires. The Australian Aborigines looked after country for tens of thousands of years, new settlers made changes to the land and not always for the better.
I disagree, Australia has done very well as a nation despite the changes in politicians and related governments. The modern problem is socialism and the Union Labor Greens are the culprits, with some exceptions in the ALP, but from Whitlam Labor Government the post war development and prosperity resulting came to a crashing halt.
But the deregulation of the banking and finance industry coupled to currency deregulation, and no checks and balances, resulted in the economy over heating and the worst recession for 60 years. We then had almost 12 years of moving forward, Australian Prudential regulatory Authority established , economic reform process continued and good management. By our standard of living in OECD listing was 8th down from 13th in But also because to the good guys that carried out repairs in between unlucky periods.
Manufacturing and industry sectors have three top-tier costs as they transfer to Main Street: If you lower any of the three drivers you lower the cost of business operations.
President Trump is actually the only President in modern history who is working to lower both material costs and energy costs simultaneously. In doing so, the short term benefit to the middle-class worker is a lower consumable good prices and subsequently a higher level of disposable income. In Chicago in July , there were over heat-related deaths. In the twenty years after , there were only total heat-related deaths less than 30 per year and over 1, cold-related deaths.
Does that look like a global warming trend? My guess is that national statistics look similar. Canada to Tony Abbott: One year-old boy came to her with a list of environmental changes he thought might be caused by climate change. These included a decline in caribou numbers and experienced hunters falling through thinning sea ice and being lost forever.
His observations were backed up by a climate scientist in the group. Rachel Cleetus, lead economist and climate policy manger with the Union Of Concerned Scientists, blasted the removal of climate change from the report. Paying people not to use energy after heavily subsidizing unreliable sources is adding madness to madness. And, yes, Mr Frydenberg, cold is far more deadly than heat, and the last Ice Age almost wiped out the human race, reducing the population to about 15, The future is always uncertain, the best response is to increase the growth and flexibility of our economy so that we are better equipped to deal with whatever comes our away, good or bad.
I went to view the evidence on the ABC link. It was available until Wed 11 Oct Almost all the points in his speech and in his answers, however, were simple ones which could have been culled from the last ten or fifteen years of postings and comments on climate sceptic websites — WUWT, Bishop Hill, Climate Audit, Jo Nova, Judith Curry etc, from NIPCC reports and from the series of good books on the subject, e.
He even gave two name checks to Matt Ridley who was in the audience. It is the psychology of delusions, the madness of crowds which I am beginning to find more interesting than the subject of climate change itself.
Is that why four of the leading sceptic website hosts of the past ten years have more or less stopped their work? Not everyone has the time to do original research and craft original thoughts. Abbott has spent years getting to the position where he could achieve that. He had to build up political capital in order to spend it. Only a big team, a network can take apart a paradigm with so much money, support and identities behind it. He, Nigel Lawson, Vaclav Klaus, Fritz Varenholt, David Bellamy, Matt Ridley himself and a few others are all high profile figures who have suffered from talking sense on the subject but not been intimidated or backed down.
When I was a student, I thought that the evolution of ideas from the Enlightenment onwards was a continuously upwards path where rationality and empiricism gradually displaced superstition and each generation understood the world better than the last.
Is it, as in the case of the Soviet Union, economic collapse? Or is there a social or economic process which causes them to wither and die?
And on a lightly different issue, is the slow or negligible productivity growth in the UK and other developed countries in the last ten years which so mystifies analysts a result of the misallocation of capital to high cost energy production and the pricing of a supposed but non existent negative externality what is driving our economies to a point where these climate change policies are dropped because they are unaffordable?
