Newsflash: Renewables are cheaper

As has often been said, the Stone Age did not end because we ran out of stones. I therefore trust that people will not blithely dismiss me as anti-progress (I am just anti-18th Century technology). However, thanks to 350.org, I have been alerted to the fact that, over at Bloomberg New Energy Finance, Giles Parkinson has announced today that: Renewables are now cheaper than coal and gas in Australia (7 Feb 2013) Perhaps it is time to invest in renewables (both corporately and individually)? One thing seems certain: They will never be superseded by anything else (except perhaps Fast Breeder Reactors). ———– See also: https://anthropocenereality.wordpress.com/2012/06/21/when-in-hole-keep-digging/ https://anthropocenereality.wordpress.com/2012/06/22/why-dont-we-mine-asbestos-again/ https://anthropocenereality.wordpress.com/2011/11/21/whats-wrong-with-clean-coal/ https://anthropocenereality.wordpress.com/2011/11/08/our-three-biggest-problems-solved/ https://anthropocenereality.wordpress.com/2011/11/09/a-brief-history-of-uk-nuclear-policy-part-1/ https://anthropocenereality.wordpress.com/2011/11/10/a-brief-history-of-uk-nuclear-policy-part-2/

      I think that’s what sensible people everywhere call “living in harmony with our environment” (and what students of environmental politics call “ecological modernisation” – hence this) 🙂 Hence
