Solve power reliability in regions

I grew up in the 50s in Casino NSW,  the whole town was reliably supplied with gas and electricity by one small power plant which used 1 x coal wagon every week or so.   A wet “mattress type filter” on the smoke stack stopped the ash etc. The air was clean.  If there was a wild storm to bring down a power line, only the town was out of power for a short time during repairs by the local electricians.  So why do we have massive outages for half the State these days and massive “grids” etc. Every town could have that simple local reliability again without the bureaucracy nonsense.  Here is an alternate method.

Hmmm – saving the planet – here we go!

Here’s a small sample of how many Coal Fired Power Plants there are in the world today. We could go into using the advanced technology of thermally efficient, supercritical steam generators that produce minimal residual waste.

The EU has 468 coal fired power plants building 27 more for a total of 495. They tell everyone else it’s their responsibility to ‘Save The Planet’ from Climate Change’, typical Europeans; morals are a philosophy, honesty is a heresy! using our own world’s best metallurgical coal; but what’s the point, it is treated as hearsay and political hyperbole.
Turkey has 56 plants building 93 more total 149

South Africa has 79 building 24 more total 103

India has 589 building 446 more total 1036

Philippines has 19 building 60 more total 79

South Korea has 58 building 26 more total 84

Japan has 90 building 45 more total 135

AND CHINA has 2363 building 1171 total 3534

 Coal Fired Power Stations of those countries who signed the Paris Agreement 5,615

When coal production and usage stops; so does the manufacturing industry; no more construction; homes built out of straw and sticks with stone axes; no household utensils as you know them – back to clay pots and chopstick, no radio, computers, phones, music; no transport of any sort so no employment; no medicines as the manufacturing equipment needed coal; no hospitals as they also have a large coal component in manufacture and equipment; no money or banks; no jails – there is no concrete or steel; no roads or bridges – walking is good for you; no food shops – do you know what food really is in the raw state – no electricity to produce fuel for food production and farming and immediately about 80% of the population will die from starvation while the rest will likely kill each other fighting over food to eat. 

No more flush toilets, toilet paper or sewerage; no running water, soap or filtrations systems you go down to the creek to wash; no sanitary wear ladies or nappies you will use absorbent moss or tree bark; no contraceptives and no medical assistance equipment or medicines for child birth; No mirrors, make-up, shampoos, bra’s, fancy clothing, no sunscreen or moisturiser, you go naked – you cannot wear bark or animal skins that’s bad for the environment and banned; No surfboards, footballs/basket balls/tennis/golf/ cricket balls and no beer.

The good side, most stupid people will have died from ignorance and starvation; no fat people; no more bullshirt false-news from fanatics being printed; population reduced to tribal levels; no pollution and no one left to really care – and best of all Greenies will have died from their own ignorant stupidly and provided fertilise for the green grass.

Think you better stick with coal – eh?
