How far will they eventually go? The green movement has struck another blow against the freedom of Australians.
“TVs, airconditioners and fridges could be switched off remotely by power companies during peak times under plans to rein in households’ demand for electricity.
The option is among measures being considered as part of a national review of the management of domestic power use.
The Ministerial Council on Energy has initiated the Australian Energy Market Commission review in response to the nation’s increasing demand for power.
The council is seeking ways to ease the demand for electricity during extremely cold nights and exceptionally hot days, to avoid the need for energy companies to build more power stations.”
Notice, they’re going to restrict our energy use when we need it most, during “extremely cold nights and exceptionally hot days”. Did they consider that they may put people at risk, particulary the elderly? What a pitiful excuse too, so we don’t need more power plants.
It does say that people will have to sign on to this scheme/scam, but I strongly doubt it will end there. The greens are mad with power and the cuts in emissions from this will not satisfy them. Another thing I doubt, is the competance of this government to pull this off. I wouldn’t put it past them to accidentally cut power to a hospital.
And, look. They’re going to need smart meters to pul this off. What could go wrong?
A bright side is that they may inadvertantly force us not to watch their propaganda ads.
Just imagine, it’s grand final day. Geelong is playing Collingwood and the cats are down by five points. Jimmy Bartel takes a mark on the siren, and…zap! Your turn. Power’s out. And you miss out on Jimmy making history. And we would know who to thank for this.
“AEMC is seeking comment on its proposals until the end of the month. A public forum will be held in December.”
Here’s how that’ll go down: “Get Stuffed”.
