Green Power - do you buy it - what is it and how does it work?
At long last I have finally go the answer as to why our Tasmanian hydro powered electricity which is clean and green as no carbon emissions or green house gases which ever they use as a measure are emitted. So I have asked and asked why is it going up like the mainland coal fired or gas fired turbines stations.
I finally found out in the annual booklet on how to use the Hydro power and save money etc arrived this year.
It is because Green Power Accreditation Scheme brought in by the Federal Government of Rudd - does not give credence to any non coal or carbon emission power schemes built prior to 1997. Even solar or wind seemingly - now isn't that bureaucratic nonsense or a sinister manipulation to make all of us pay up and prices of food and all other necessities of life go up accordingly so we end up as poor as the third world countries - and they say will spread the wealth to them to bring them up to our standards.
Yeah Right usual socialist crap of levelling all down to one level - lowest. Except of course for themselves who rise up and live like the Kings they think they are.
Now how many of you knew this and why as I asked many folk around for months why the power was going up and gas and all said due to ETS coming but seemingly not.
Googled and found this.
Read the ad on the top which says you can relax knowing it has the government;s tick of approval.
then read on and go over the page and then to link sites.
So now you can after reading sit back and feel all warm and fuzzy thinking of the green power coming down the lines to your own home and how you are saving the planet forgetting the fact you are cutting your own throat by so doing as encourage them to put the costs up even higher - they can afford it - lets hit them again.
it it wasn't so serious I would laugh but many of our own pensioners will go cold this winter and/or hungry or without medicine to pay the bills they think are important for them. Does anyone care? I dont think so.
Cant see the state upping the concessions now that they have or may have lost 1/3 of their GST for what may well prove no gain for the public but a gain for public servants in extra layer of bureaucracy.
Stands to reason taxes will have to rise some time soon. Federal and states too to regain revenue.
