◆ ◆ ◆ How much of Australia's energy production has been efficiently replaced with Wind &/or Solar.....5%.....10%.....15% ......... How about the World? 5%....7% ??? Both are highly subsidized by the public (a government subsidy comes from the People's Pockets), & have been for many years.....The People are already highly invested, subsidizing Wind & Solar heavily, for such a minuscule up-take (low percentage of the total energy market nationally & going nowhere fast in total energy market share worldwide)......

Ok.......How many solar panels & wind turbines + batteries (square acreage) would you need to completely replace fossil fuel energy generation in just one city say in Sydney.....or Perth......or Melbourne......or Brisbane........or Darwin......etc......etc......(you choose) 24/7/365 when either the wind drops, when there are occasional overcast day(s), & the average temperature rises above 30 degrees, & everyone switches on their AC when they get home from work? Would your cheaper RE handle the load or collapse miserably, needing hours/days/weeks to get acceptably back on line?

Until RE can give you the same up-time as present day fossil fuel generation does..........cheaper pipe-dream "greenie" alternatives aint gunna cut it here in Australia, & never ever will....
......people won't accept inferior standards, & will flat out run yer tar & feathered greenie tail outa town if ya try ta sell 'em on such voodo!!

Coal mines and coal fired generators have shut down as they cannot compete. Intermittent requires storage like pumped hydro and I don’t mind nuclear in the mix. It is important to stop increasing carbon emissions.

Ever heard of co-generation?

So, admittedly then, Fossil fuel will be here to stay as the main source of stable & superior energy production. Anyone dreamin'/sayin' otherwise is out there in LaLaLand until otherwise becomes a proven fact.

IMHO.....Nuclear is the only valid & feasible alternative to fossil fuel generated power plants

Nobody with a brain ever said fossil fuels had to disappear! The complex has been subsidising fossil fuels for a century ever since air superiority became the aim of any serious country.

You can come on here and say Americans believe in guns all you want and I understand that but as soon as you forget that the need for air superiority meant fossil fuels were supported by a whole complex then I deny you all credibility.

If by air superiority = you mean clean, breathable air................if so, I wholeheartedly 100% agree. Coal fired Power Plants fitted with Air Scrubbers, expensive yes, but with today's technology, are acceptably clean, if you can see past the initial cost.

Nuclear power is only needed for metropolises addicted to consumerism and submarine games!

Question: if I lived in a world that made everyone else's t shirts and basketball shoes would I ever be be allowed enough time off to waste my life in hotels?
