Ron: Here's a letter I sent to the Canberra times today.
Canberra Times Letters Editor.
Michelle Grattan, 'Can Barnaby Joyce sell net zero policy?', CT 23/10/21, p. 48, quotes Barnaby Joyce: "Modelling is not a letter from God. It is no more than the opinion of people."
Joyce is saying: ‘‘garbage in, garbage out". Computer models produce whatever the program designer's subjective data inputs decide. The modellers have been grossly wrong for decades.

CO2 constitutes a miniscule proportion of atmospheric gases; all life on this planet is carbon based; and increases in CO2 stimulate plant growth.
All "renewable" energy is actually "replaceable" energy. Every 15-25 years (or less) much or all of the alt-energy systems and structures have to be replaced, and little of the necessary mining, manufacturing and transport can be performed with the "renewable" electricity these sources generate. Currently these processes require hydrocarbons and especially oil. See eg:

This debate will end in the near future when Tesla and other suppressed technologies extracting energy from the aether become generally available.
