We can reduce our emissions, or they can reduce them for us

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.”

So, these two bureacracies I’ve never heard of before, are going to have the power to regulate electricity to our homes? Yeah, that’s what we want. More government intrusion into our lives.

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”.

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?

    Big Brother coming to a place near you!
    It remains now, how long before the greens proclaim the reintroduction of ice chests?

    We don’t need to reduce our emissions. We need to reduce the number of politicians that are involved in the global warming scam. Time to jail all the global warming criminals.

    It gets worse than that. The government has mandated that all homes and businesses are to be fitted with so-called “Smart Meters” by 2017 that can not only switch off your electricity at times of high demand, leaving homes without heating or air conditioning in extreme weather conditions, but these Smart Meters are also surveillance devices that collect all manner of information about you and your energy use – much like illegal wire tapping.

    They can tell when you are home, away or on holiday and will monitor your use of power throughout the day and night, collecting information for government agencies and private companies interested in knowing your movements and habits.

    Worse, the Smart Meter functions like a radio station broadcasting information about you to anyone (such as thieves interested in whether you are at home or not), insurance companies, consumer survey groups, general government snoops and the like.

    Worse still these devices are suspected of being highly dangerous to health, with cancer-producing radiations like living under a mobile phone tower.

    We don’t have to accept Smart Meters, and we can advise our energy supplier that we refuse to have them fitted. The only way they can instal them is by our “implied consent” which if we withhold consent and threaten legal action if the instal it, will cause them to think again.

    We need to ensure that our homes and those of our neighbours remain Smart Meter Free, and there are various stickers online that we can download and paste on our electricity boxes.

    I recommend this action to everyone interested in freedom and public health.
