POLAND: WIND TURBINES WILL BE SCRAPPED WITHIN 17 YEARS
wysokienapiecie.pl - extract from a piece by Bartlomiej Derski, 26 Dec 18.

All wind farms operating today in Poland will be scrapped by 2035, with no new turbines built to replace them, according to the document “Energy Policy of Poland until 2040” presented by the Polish Ministry of Energy a few days ago. The Minister explained that this was a political decision.

On Wednesday the government contracted with investors the construction of several hundred new wind turbines (with a capacity of approximately 1 GW). The average prices offered by investors, at which they committed to sell electricity, barely reached 197 PLN/MWh. This is less than the current market price (250 PLN/MWh) and much less than the total production cost in new coal-fired power plants (350 PLN/MWh).

CONTAINS 100% NUTS
Unconcerned with reality, some incoming members of the new Democratic majority in the House are calling to create a select committee to map out an astonishing “Green New Deal”. It will be designed, if that is the correct word, to move the U.S. toward using 100% renewable energy for the electric grid whilst guaranteeing jobs for everyone.

In Australia, the Greens have recently announced they want to make coal mining an illegal act, saying that coal kills. They have already called for the shutting down of all coal mining by 2030. Now they want to make miners into criminals for providing the coal used to generate 80%+ of NSW electricity.

Unless they are stopped, these activists will wreck the economy. Coal is the main export in Australia.
