Reading through @OtherProfGreen summary of the 9th August #UK event, the similarities to the 25th August 2018 #Australian separation event across the #NEM are very interesting to observe.
Firstly, they are all attributed to lightning strikes.

And although the #UK one was easy to identify, the #QLD one took a bit of forensic investigation as it happened at a time that no weather warnings were out for the area.
Both events attribute an initial loss of generation due to disconnection of #distributed #generation #DG

I will get back to this point later, because it is probably the most interesting aspect of both events!!

Deciphering the panoply of manipulation deceit & lies of the parasitic #Ophite/ #Khazarian #Globalist #DeepState cabal…

To begin with “#OnlyTheNameChanges” is key to THEIR usurping/ renaming belief systems for THEIR own benefit… regardless ALL are based on #Ophiolatreia 🐍

To comprehend “#Serpent worship” one must travel far back in time to the founding cults of ALL symbolism/ religions/ belief systems…

#Stellar = #AstroTheology (most ancient)

#Solar = #FireandSun

Building painted #Utility #Green, has 2 #diesel #generators in it. You can see 2 #vertical #exhaust #stacks & the left #Rain #Cap is raised showing that it is running. #Engines need to #breathe so below the exhaust #Pipes are two green elbow #ducts
#QAnon #WWG1WGA #QNN #Epstein
But, there is one more #air #Intake #duct to the left, and two to the right. They are shaped like this to block #wind #driven #Rain on this #Tropical Isle. On the right, I believe is an #RO #desalination plant. These need regular #maintenance.
#QAnon #WWG1WGA #QNN #Epstein
The #RO pre-filter packs need to be changed regularly. The #Osmosis #membranes have to be #cleaned, and the whole system needs #flushing from time to time. Not to mention, #monitoring. That explains all the #side #doors.

Hey, I’ve now had my #solar panels for 2 years. So here’s a thread about why #solar panels are awesome. 1
The first thing to know about going #solar is that once you do it you never have to think about it. I sell power to the grid during the day and buy power from the grid at night, but that's all automatic. When I turn on the lights the lights turn on, day or night. 2
The next thing to know about #solar is the excellent economics. I estimated in this essay about greening my life politico.com/magazine/story… that my panels would pay for themselves in eight years. It's now looking like the payback will be...yup, eight years. 3

Recent @bradplumer article for @nytimes asks - will utilities replace #coal with #naturalgas or #renewableenergy? Utilities are diverging along those paths, but the math for renewable and storage economics is more compelling than many understand. A thread:
1/ If you concede that natgas or some "firm" capacity is for balancing and to meet peak, it's fair as a rule of thumb to say solar plus storage replaces that service until we get to much higher penetrations of renewables. We can rely for now on 450 GW of existing gas.
2/ @Lazard LCOE v12 puts the LCOE of natgas at $41-74. Consider two interesting numbers. The first is yesterday's contracts for 1200MW solar and 590MW storage in Nevada. Only one contract for 200/100 MW of solar + 4hr battery announced prices. greentechmedia.com/articles/read/…

This week, one thing we know: if the UK government believes there is a #ClimateEmergency it certainly isn’t acting like it. 🚨

Here’s a tale of words and not deeds. About the UK government’s climate commitments and climate action (or lack of).

Read on… #SolarVAT #NetZero 1/8
In May, the UK parliament declared a #ClimateEmergency… but this shouldn’t be mistaken for climate ACTION. 2/8

act.gp/2FwJL9j
To tackle this #ClimateEmergency we're going to need lots of clean power. Like #solar power…

Solar got a rough start. It used to be thought of as too expensive and took subsidies to really get going...

So China's MacMines shelves its decade long development of its Galilee Coal project, China Stone. A $6.7bn high ash, low energy (HALE) thermal #coal export proposal. abc.net.au/news/2019-05-2… by @LGartry
Why? 🇨🇳 is moving to decarbonise & transition its economy as fast as it can. China is the world's biggest producer, consumer & importer of coal. But China's coal consumption peaked in 2014. 🇨🇳 will probably cease thermal coal imports medium term, relying on their domestic mines.
China just announced a 21GW subsidy free wind & #solar tender, for construction completion by next year. Grid parity for renewables in China by 2020. That is well ahead of target. Zero pollution, zero emissions domestic production. bloomberg.com/news/articles/… by Feifei Shen @business

1/For those who say - "what about renters and people who live in apartments?" there are a few options available. 1. Sun Tenants which works by splitting the benefit of #solar between landlords and tenants - suntenants.com @SunTenants
2/ Then if you live in Victoria the Vic Government is introducing a #Solar for renters rebate from 1st July this year. #springstreet danandrews.com.au/policies/rente…

According to @ramez good climate policy has 3 key traits:
1. It has a large, meaningful impact on climate change.
2. It tackles the problems that aren’t being tackled by the market.
3. It actually gets passed into law
Aka practical and popular The #GreenNewDeal can be this. 1/2
Technology neutral policies for #climate action aren't what we need!
We have affordable #wind & #solar because policy makers in Germany, and the US, and China created markets for solar and wind before they were cost-competitive. techcrunch.com/2019/02/15/how… #auspol @the_AEMC
Hey @OBenPotter @angelamacd what would it take for you or someone at the AFR to suggest that maybe technology neutrality is not what is needed on #climate? That commercialising techs that can lower emissions around the world is a proven way to go?

I thought it worth a thread suggesting something material might just have changed in Australia's #1 thermal #coal export destination - Japan 🇯🇵. We at IEEFA have written about this quite a bit, but mainly about the growing momentum to exit #coal. ieefa.org/ieefa-japan-ea…
On the other side, @JoshSHill wrote about TEPCO, Japan's biggest thermal power generation firm. They just announced a joint venture MoU with @Orsted for offshore #wind.
Anyone else seeing a Japanese corporate pivot towards #RenewableEnergy internationally?
reneweconomy.com.au/japan-looks-to…
TEPCO also this week announced it will co-seed CleanGrid Partners' US$60m #solar infrastructure fund for South East Asia, starting with distributed, off grid solar replacing imported diesel applications in Philippines. A smallish step, but a good one. ✔️ straitstimes.com/business/compa…

Aboriginal communities powered by #solar. That's Unkle Ike's vision starting in his community in NSW.
Will you chip in a $100 tax deductible donation to the #re4bre crowdfunding campaign? bit.ly/2RVGgk6 Every dollar donated will go to installing solar and batteries.
Congratulations Uncle Ike, The Valley Centre, @pingala_sydney @MEFLnews @DICE for such a great initiative. These guys are creating a revolving fund so every $ donated, becomes the gift that keeps giving, enabling more and more Aboriginal communities to access #solar. #fairdinkum

@phenrikand 1/ I’ve been in the digital cash and eMoney space since 1999 for co-design bit.ly/NavyCash It was centralised command control money digital USD on an EMV card where the backend -> every transaction traced & tracked by float manager @jpmorgan debitcard ATMs via @Mastercard
@phenrikand @jpmorgan @Mastercard 2/ Every Navy base & every ship in a flotilla was like an island🌴 at sea (at any point in time it could have only local and no or limited comms back to treasury) Similar to today’s offchain and onchain networks eventually reconciliation would happen.

France presented today its #energy and #climate strategy. It has four goals:
1 - To cut #energy consumption
2 - To turn away from #fossilfuels
3 - To diversify its #energy mix
4 - To keep things affordable, increase jobs and innovate medias.businessimmo.com/default/0002/3…
The overall target of France's strategy for #energy and #climate is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 through cutting GHG emissions down significantly and also increasing carbon sinks
France wants to cut #CO2 emissions down to 227 Mt in 10 years by cutting final #energy consumption 14% and primary #energy from #fossilfuels by 35%. Also, increasing #renewable heating and doubling the #electricity from renewables. Note: transport emissions vanish by 2050.

It's 9am on a Sunday morning and time to update my #unpopularopinions on #solar thread from a year ago*. I've mellowed in some respects, so only some will be unpopular. I'm not gonna wait for likes in case nobody does.

*
1. #Solar wafer, cell or module manufacturing is a terrible business to be in, with vicious price competition and last mover advantage. Most well-known manufacturers are saddled with heavy debt they took on to build their rapidly-becoming-outdated factories.
2. Crystalline silicon technology is good enough. Another great module technology, either making a multiple junction cell with c-Si or replacing c-Si, would be nice and make money for the company that does it, but not fundamentally alter the dynamics of the industry.
