In South Australia the state premier, who holds eco-cult beleifs on climate, decided to blow up the state's main baseload source power (a coal power station) and replace it with unreliable and stupidly expensive wind farms.

The result was state wide power blackouts and literally the world's most expensive power prices. This has sent the poor into having their power cut off and major businesses closing up shop.

As a result of the searing backlash from voters, businesses and energy engineers, the same premier is installing a giant lithium battery (which is again pointless expensive window dressing) AND around 200MW of wait for it...DIESEL backup generators  and gas turbines also in the pipeline. The cost of all this embarrassing U Turn back to fossil fuels has been enormous to the taxpayer. For a piddling 8 million a year he could have simply kept the original coal plant going and, wait for it...emitted LESS CO2.

Many other countries have followed a similarly stupid path. Time to look and learn perhaps?

Instead of listening to experienced energy engineers this Polly listened to people from the UN and the like who either went into the energy field to spread their eco utopia fantasies or had degrees in stuff like lesbian dance theory 😁

My mate up in Gisborne has been off the national grid since the end of the 1990s and he has NEVER had power shortages or outages.

He owns a lifestyle block with a spring which never dries up feeding a stream (hydro-electric power), plus a bank of solar cells and three wind generators.

He just laughs at flat-earthers like you.

Right so because your mate has an expensive tin pot set up, that means the engineering and maths stacks up for powering cities with this stuff does it?

Computer says no 😁

You are obviously still a coal-ages luddite.

A bit like those bronze age and iron age backwards-looking people in past history.

Meanwhile, the world will move on from your ignorance and you will be left in intelligent people's dust.

VERY intelligent people HAVE done the math on this. Even if window dressing govts waste collosal taxpayer dollars on this stuff, it can't in it's present form do the job of powering cities/countries.

Germany tried it and is quietly U-turning to coal and nuclear (from neighbouring countries) .

Spain, whose economy is now fucked, flushed billions down the toilet on the great solar fantasy. It didn't pan out.

The long list goes on.

The most sensible path is gas in the medium term and put significantly more research money into researching green energy breakthroughs.
