Is hydrogen part of a sustainable energy future?

There’s a lot to like about hydrogen. For starters, it’s abundant. Hydrogen can store excess renewable power. When liquified, it’s more energy intense than fossil alternatives. In a fuel cell, it can generate electricity. When it’s burned, the only by-product is water.

The Greenie pests are having a dream run.

First Greenie Climatists destroyed reliable coal-fired power stations, trying to replace them with intermittent wind-solar toys and a giant $90M battery.

Then a Greenie PM donated $444M to a Greenie group to discourage industry near the Great Barrier Reef.

Then drought helped Greenie water-wasters to kill rural industries from Townsville to Broken Hill. Then floods in the wild rivers of the north devastated much of what was left. Decades of Greenie opposition to new dams made both drought and flood disasters worse.

Then Greenie mismanagement of parks, forests and grasslands helped fuel even more destructive bush fires.

And recently a Judge used Greenie propaganda to kill a new coal mine in NSW, and a Greenie academic used a finchy story to add to the ten year delay to the Adani Coal Mine.

Now the lights are going out and jobs are disappearing.

The looming elections provide an opportunity to get rid of this plague of Greenie pests.

  1. Wow it’s incredible that attitudes like Viv’s still exist with all the proof that climate change IS happening right here right now!! Dirty coal power stations are not the future!

  2. I read this in utter disbelief of the ignorance shown by Viv Forbes. Our planet is reaching a turning point where we can’t repair the damage. There is insurmountable evidence to back this up. Vested interests in the coal industry and the government i.e. Scott Morrison, Tony Abbott et al have stalled any sensible climate change action.
    You look at ‘greenies’ as the enemy. Greenies are the ones trying to protect your future. Without sensible action to reduce our impact on the world’s environment there will be no jobs for future generations. Only constant weather disasters like the floods and droughts you speak of, which will contribute to global food shortages and starvation for millions. The pollution, deforestation and over-population of humans will kill off 50% of all other species in the next 30 years.
    There is no disputing this. There is no warranted future for coal and the fossil fuel industry.
