Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

To October 21 Nuclear News Australia

I know that it’s becoming a tedious subject, but, unfortunately, the risk of war, a nuclear war, is creeping up inexorably. The general consensus of expert opinion is that North Korea’s Kim Jong Un does not want, or intend to start, a war. His quite rational aim is the ability to deliver a nuclear weapon to the USA. and thus prevent an American attack, and ensure the survival of his regime.  Russia and China, have achieved this ability, and USA and the world have learned to live with this reality.

Expert opinion seems completely confused as to the real aims of USA’s Donald Trump, and this is making for a scary scene. – And, it is hard to dismiss the opinion of the 27 psychiatrists who warned  about Trump’s mental state.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nhoGIvOKJU

The new energy plan could be disaster for renewables, climate, prices.  Turnbull’s National Energy Guarantee works against battery energy storage. Does Western Australia need its own renewables target?

Turnbull lies – calling coal a “dispatchable”power source. (Dispatchable power can be turned on and off as needed – it’s the opposite to baseline power – on all the time, as with coal)
