Ok. I read all 129 pages of the pamphlet. Its not worth the paper I didn’t print it on. I understand technology damn well. This isn’t a β€œtechnology driven approach”. It’s inaction, misdirection & avoiding choices. I’m going to bed. This is just ridiculously embarrassing.

Further to this - thrilled to announce my plan to become an Olympic swimmer by 2050. I will not begin training or make any adjustments - instead, I will rely on future improvements to swimsuit technology to get me there. This is the Australian way. Accepting praise, no questions
Excited to announce that after a decade of deliberations, I have agreed to a process to phase out chocolate from my diet - as long as the transition changes nothing, I should be ready to phase it out in 30 years time. I will not be taking questions at this time

πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ UK 2050 plan? 21 docs. 1868 pages. Heat & building strategy. Heat pump grants. EV incentives. End gas boilers by 2035, ICE sales by 2030! Treasury reviewed. CCC approved. Pathways for every sector to 2037. Legally binding. 5 year targets. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί Aus? No plan. Just more bullshit.

The updated emissions projections now have the National Electricity Market hitting 69 per cent renewables by 2030 - 51% by 2025 - and 61 per cent nation wide by 2030. Now wayyy beyond the β€œreckless” Labor targets taken to the 2019 election.

A plan to plan a responsible plan to creating a plan to meet and beat something in 2050 the Australian way. Yay the climate crisis is solved. I can't roll my eyes enough.

This is not a plan to get to net zero. This is a set of assumptions - with nothing to underpin them released today - of what might happen because of technology.

Claiming the wind doesn’t blow at night now? πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ New levels of climate fear bullshit have to just make you laugh.
The nationals member for Mallee Dr Anne Webster tells us wind farms don’t work in the dark.

What's your problem @mcannonbrookes ??? Under "The Archives Act 1983" we will get to see all of this ... in 2051 That should be time enough surely?
I’m not good at decoding β€œword soup”. If I read it correctly, the emissions model prepared by a department to guide our nation’s choices was presented to Cabinet. Releasing that model, with no cabinet discussions or minutes at all, threatens national security. How? πŸ€”πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ

This is not how I would usually roll, but it's a bit of an experiment. We'll see how it goes.
