Climate Change in Australia


#3964

It’s …


#3965

It’s impuntent to punt out pundentry rules here.


#3966

Unfortunately, the reality we’re currently in - Coal, Oil, Gas and Nuclear are the only power generation that works…


#3967

The guy up the road with a few dozen solar panels is gonna feel pretty foolish when he hears that.


#3968

Not that foolish if he doesn’t want power at night


#3969

I think he would though.
If his lights didn’t work at night.
But they seem to.


#3970

Sounds like magic, will your neighbour down the street share his secrets with the world???


#3971

You are taking the pizz here,. … right?


#3972

It’s got something to do with photons.
I don’t think magic is involved.


#3973

How does he get these “photons” if there is no sun on his solar panels?


#3974

Oh dear, … I fear he’s actually serious… :no_mouth:


#3975

I just realised I have several farking magic lights in my yard!
They only work at night.
What is this sorcery???


#3976

El-ec-trickery!!!


#3977

Nice change of tack and nice try - Thats not sorcery, that’s just batteries


#3978

Mmph … slap


#3979

LOL.
I just realised you put quotation marks around photons.
Like it’s a word I just made up.
Thank you for giving me a jolly old laugh.


#3980

I’ve been having a jolly old laugh at this pointless conversation


#3981

That’s the spirit!


#3982

So I guess we all realised, that in our reality, we still need Coal, Oil, Gas or Nuclear.

You did make a nice point about that one house though, in your street, oh and the little itsy bitsy solar lamps in your garden but there are so many more houses and lights in other street, not just yours.

Furthermore, we haven’t even discussed Industries and big business… golly gee I hope your little magical photons can operate these plants from the renewable energy plants of today, we have now, in this reality

If you want to talk about things seriously, then stop talking about magical photons, or saying things like ‘only these forms of power generation work.’
If you want to talk about specifics, fine, but you need to…you know…be specific.
Because solar power does work.
It does work at night.
Photons aren’t magic.

If you want to deny these things then we can have a lot of fun.
If you want to talk about positives and negatives of various alternate power sources then I’m sure that would be equally welcomed.
