Energy, greendom and kitchen tables in Geelong

collage39_560

In the sustainable studio on 94.7 The Pulse on 20 August 2014 we have Leigh Ewbank with us from Friends of the Earth. ‘The Vegemite Man’ – as he has become known in media because people recognise him on his sweater – has travelled from Melbourne to talk with us and our listeners about the projects and activities which Friends of the Earth are rolling out in Geelong.

Most of them are focused around the Victorian state election which will take place on 29 November 2014, and they provide a special opportunity to get involved: Ask every politician you can what their position is on the Renewable Energy Target and what they think about the transition to a low carbon future. Every time you get the chance.

We also talk with investment expert Tim Buckley about the current coal and gas industry economy – and about why he thinks the Anglesea coal power station would already be considered a stranded asset if it wasn’t for the fact that it is being protected by Australian government policy.

Greendom

Today this is Geelong not calling, but asking – asking those stupid, but also rather obvious and sometimes necessary questions. Because… for instance… Honestly! Why doesn’t Geelong have a wind turbine on every hill around the city? They are all over the place in a city like Copenhagen – and for a reason: wind is the cheapest way to generate electricity. Why isn’t there a single turbine in or near Geelong?

The only one in the Geelong region is a tired old and miserable relic of a turbine located near Breamlea, which has been standing there, all itself, for almost 28 years now.

Apart from the economic aspect, there is another aspect which makes it even more absurd why wind power is absent from our city. It is the aspect called ‘science’. Some people don’t like to talk about science – or want to discuss it as if science was a question of belief while denying the dire reality we are facing. The thing is… the science is in, and we need to face it. The science is telling us we need to stop burning coal, oil and gas. Urgently. Already in 2015, which as you would know is next year, we need to see carbon emissions be reduced – on a global scale.

So, why aren’t we into it – busy with the transition? Why aren’t our leaders busy with getting us into it?

Geelong’s mayor is rambling in the newspapers and on Facebook about how cheap fuel from the refinery near the city can be used as a ‘trick’ to attract cruise ships to stop here. But, dear Darryn Lyons, no! You apparently haven’t bothered to update yourself with the writing on the wall from international bodies and organisations such as the United Nations, the International Panel on Climate Change, the World Bank… not to mention President Obama in the United States, or the Australian Climate Council. They all speak with the same voice and their message is clear: Cheap fuel is NOT something we’d want to base our economy on any longer. We urgently need to stop that burning of petrol, gas, oil, coal and all the rest – and while you think of it as promoting business, the reality is that in just a few years time from now, it will make Geelong a place to stay away from. It’s as simple as that.

Germany and Denmark are now getting more than a third of their electricity from renewables. So is our neighbouring state, South Australia.

In Denmark in January this year, over that whole month, wind energy provided 62 percent of the electricity demand in that country. In Victoria at the moment, we are far below 10 percent, and most of that is delivered by one big dam – hydro power from Tasmania.

Spain – a country which just a few decades ago was far less developed than Australia – met more than a third of July’s electricity demand with wind and solar power.

Now, that’s a new level of greendom!

Maybe you haven’t heard “greendom” being used before? Well, it means something like: Freedom from fossil fuel addiction. Green Freedom = Greendom.

Words are important. They shape our actions. Like: the way that ‘fossil fools‘ is becoming an accepted way to talk about the short-sighted politicians and CEOs who protect and support the fossil fuel industry.

We need to talk about which words we use when we talk about these issues. Like: Why do we call it a ‘carbon tax’ when what it really is – or rather, in Australia: was – is a ‘price on pollution’?

Why do we talk about ‘climate change’ as if it was just a weather phenomenon – when what is really the issue here is the concept of ‘intergenerational justice’? Because the reality of why we have a climate change problem is that greed, self-interest and being lazy is given higher priority than the welfare and safety of our children and grandchildren.

Why aren’t we talking about, or up in arms about that our industries are given a free ride by the regulators to use the sky as an open sewer – keep flooding billions of tons of carbon up there, year after year after year, even though we know it is going to cost us trillions of dollars with all the damage it causes – and the bill just gets higher and higher as time goes by, as we quietly watch the poles melt, our farm land dry out, the frequency of extreme weather events increase, and so on – let alone the health aspects of what happens to us when we breathe in this air pollution?

Why do we talk about ‘climate change’ when we goddamn know that ‘climate’ is something that has always been changing on this planet whereas the real problem is that we humans pollute the atmosphere too much? We keep blowing some 33 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide out into the atmosphere every year, as we burn our fossils – while we also keep on chopping down the forests which used to absorb some of all that carbon… which maybe was fine back in the last centuries, where ‘the sky was the limit’ – or rather: unlimited – we perceived it as an endless open space with no limits for how much smoke we could send out there through our chimneys and exhaustion pipes.

Ever since we learned how to make fire, we humans have regarded the air as an endless open sewer with a nice clear blue sky above the clouds, no matter how much we would be burning, how much smoke we would be producing – it would always somehow just disappear.

But really, this perception needs to change radically now. So the debate shouldn’t be about the weather and the invisible ‘climate’ which is changing, or about how the weather happens to behave or misbehave – it should be about the ecological disaster which experts tell us we are creating and which is going to affect us… our economy…. security… livelihood… at all levels. We are loading up to something nasty, day by day, because of our unwillingness to change old habits and abandon our outdated, pollluting machinery.

It is time to refresh the vocabulary and move on from talking about ‘climate change’. This is a story about an approaching ‘air pollution apocalypse’. It is about politicians and industry leaders conducting crimes against humanity – the global ‘air pollution scandal’ – and it is about our own security, survival, safety, as well as protection of species and a livable planet.

What we call ‘climate change action’ is everything about how we manage and overcome that threat we are confronted with because our leaders keep allowing us to pollute the atmosphere with CO2-particles and methane and the rest. It is the question about what we can do to stop this madness of ignorance and deafness, blindness and short-sighted, vested interests – simply because we want to live in a livable world – not in an escalating runaway global warming emergency situation.

We want our kids to be safe and happy and live in a livable world too. And their kids.

So then what is it we can do to make everyone conscious and aware of this? How do we change the narrative and create the political will for a “livable world”?

Could we exchange the expression ‘climate action’ with, for instance, ‘securing a livable world’ – or ‘creating a safer future’?

What would happen if we stopped discussing climate change and started discussing the exact measures which are required of us to ensure a safer future and a livable world?

The Renewable Energy Target

Australia is the world’s largest polluter per person, and almost all Australians want to keep the Renewable Energy Target (RET).

A newspoll published in the newspaper The Australian finds 95 percent of Australians believe that renewable energy is ‘a good idea’ with only two percent believing it is not.

Another survey has concluded that three out of four Australian want to keep or expand the Renewable Energy Target.

Yet it currently looks as if it is doing to being scrapped by the federal government.

According to the survey published in The Australian, 62 percent of people thought it was a good idea as long as they didn’t have to pay any more for their electricity, while only 31 percent were prepared to pay more to support renewables development.

Call the Australian Prime Minister’s office

Make a phone call to Tony Abbott’s office – (02) 6277 7700 – about the Renewable Energy Target. Let Abbott’s staff know what you think of his idea to ‘axe’ it.

“Find your patch, dig in, and start from there.”
Gary Snider

“Find a manageable chunk of the climate problem and devote yourslef to chip away with that. It is only when the community gets involved that we can get it on the politicians’ radar in the Victorian election,” said Leigh Ewbank in The Sustainable Hour.

Leigh Ewbank wrote in an email on 18 August 2014: “Last week it was Treasurer Joe Hockey telling us poor people don’t drive. This week, the Abbott government is saying they want to kill the renewable energy sector.

The Australian Financial Review is reporting that the Abbott government wants to “axe” the Renewable Energy Target. The popular scheme has built an $18 billion industry, created 30,000 jobs, and is driving national efforts to tackle global warming. 

These reports are deeply troubling. Which is why I’m asking for your help. 
 
This morning I called the Prime Minister’s office to tell the government that I support clean renewable energy. I told them I want the Renewable Energy Target increased not axed.

If you share my concern, I’m asking you to join me in taking a simple step that will send a powerful signal to the Abbott government. 

Will you call the Prime Minister’s office on (02) 6277 7700 to let them know where you stand?

What to say… Politely tell the office member who you are, where you’re from, and why you support the 41-terawatt-hour Renewable Energy Target. Ask the aide to pass on your comments to PM Tony Abbott.

Over to you and good luck. 

Cheers, Leigh

PS: Please share this with your family, friends and colleagues.”

“You might think to yourself, ‘Gee, what can I do?’. Be involved. Be a part of the conversation. Give people who are putting their time in that little bit of acknowledgement – that little bit of support, or say ‘I’m just thinking of this…’, or ‘Yes, thank you for that!’. Because that is what keeps us going, so then you don’t end up in a pit of despair and you throw your towel in and say ‘I’m not doing this anymore’. It is that little tiny thought from individual people that allows us to keep going. Let’s connect! Let’s talk! And let’s help each other out. Then we can achieve anything we want.”

RET important for local jobs

Independent modelling finds that if the Abbott government terminates the Renewable Energy Target there would be no reduction to household power prices and carbon emissions would climb by 15 million tonnes a year.

On 18 August 2014 MP Sarah Henderson published the following media statement:

“I am concerned about today’s reports about the Renewable Energy Target (RET).  As Finance Minister, Mathias Cormann has pointed out today, the Federal Government remains committed to the RET. That is our policy.

It was the Howard Government that introduced the RET in 2001 to encourage growth in renewable energy. The RET is so important for local jobs and for regional prosperity.  As a strong supporter of renewable energy, I will contine my campaign to ensure the RET remains in place.”

Economic aspects

“When policy is being determined by brown paper bags, we have to all stand up and speak up.”

“The coal industry is dying. There is a coal company doing bankrupt every month around the world. The major coal companies are on their knees.”
Tim Buckley


Compelling financial reasons

“I think there are actually compelling financial reasons as to why we are going to inevitably see the world’s electricity markets move towards a low-carbon future. You can externalise the pollution, and you can externalise the impacts on water, but at the end of the day, the price of renewable energy is coming down so rapidly that I would argue it is inevitaable that we are going to move to a more diverse electricity structure that is less carbon intensive.”
Tim Buckley

“Solar will be at the forefront of a major energy system transformation in the coming decade,” says Tim Buckley, director of Energy Finance Studies, Australasia, Institute of Energy Economics and Financial Analysis. He has worked as coal market analyst for Citibank for 17 years, culminating in his role as Managing Director and Head of Australasian Equity Research for the last six years.

“Why would I not put my money in Australian renewables? Because the Abbott government is doing everything they possibly can to undermine the economy and commercial returns from renewables in Australia.”

Tim Buckley has 25 years of financial markets experience, having spent the majority of this time as a top-rated equities research analyst in Australia, with some time covering global and Asian equity markets. Buckley is co-founder and managing director of Arkx Investment Management, which consults in the low carbon finance sector and is an investor in leading global-listed clean energy companies.

“Distributed roof-top solar, coupled with residential storage and smart home energy management systems, will be an enormously disruptive grouping of new technologies that will continue to dramatically impact the antiquated business models based around centralised, subsidised, polluting coal-based electricity generation. (…)
Total system costs for residential solar will continue to fall, retail electricity prices will continue to rise, and the total system functionality of solar with home storage will expand the total value offering.”
Tim Buckley

Renewable energy is ready to supply all of Australia’s electricity
Mark Diesendorf counters claims that renewable energy targets make Australia’s electricity expensive. He goes further and says he and a team at University of NSW have shown, over the last few years, that it is technically and economically feasible for Australia to go to 100% renewables in its electricity supply. He even suggests the transition to 100% renewables could be made without additional cost if existing fossil fuel subsidies were transferred to renewables.

CDP, which encourages companies to measure, report and reduce their carbon footprints, promotes sustainable investment via its Carbon Action initiative. Through Carbon Action, 254 investors representing $19 trillion in U.S. assets under management have asked global companies with the most carbon emissions to reduce those emissions yearly and to publicly disclose their targets. The carbon reduction measures they put in place are delivering an average return on investment of 33 percent.

Simon Corbell’s statement was broadcasted on ABC in the 45 minutes documentary by Four Corners:

“Well, the other state governments have vested interests in maintaining the status quo. They collect royalties from the coal mines. They collect the dividents from the coal fired generators – they own these assets. And they are not interested in disrupting that business model. Even though that is locking consumers into high energy costs over medium to long term.”

12 medical and health scientists wrote a letter to the Prime Minister
The Coalition government is coming under increasing pressure for its abandonment of meaningful climate action, with an open letter from 12 eminent medical and health scientists urging Prime Minister Abbott to include climate change on the agenda for this year’s G20 meeting.

“We urge you to include human-induced climate change and its serious health consequences on the agenda for this year’s G20 meeting. The world community looks to high-income countries for a strong lead. [I]f Australia passes up opportunities for new energy technologies and efficiencies, we will forfeit gains in long-term economic security and fail to contribute fairly to reducing worldwide risks to human health.”
Open letter to PM Tony Abbott from 12 eminent Australian medical and health scientists.



Pollution kills

The letter comes in the wake of a new study that shows air pollution is killing more Australians than road accidents, again emphasising the fact that moving away from fossil fuels is as important for addressing domestic health impacts as it is for global climatic ones.


OLAM: huge bill to pay for future generations
The National Party element of the Coalition should also be supportive of the call, given agricultural giant Olam International has just pointed out that climate change is ‘absolutely a reality’ that Australian producers need to take seriously.

“It is absolutely a reality that climate change is going to significantly impact agriculture. My view is that there is no point if I’ve generated half-a-billion after tax earnings, but I’ve depleted $200 million of natural capital from the environment. Because then I’ve got to question myself, what is the point of all this overwhelming effort if at the end of the day you’ve really depleted the natural capital and left a huge bill to pay for future generations?”
Sunny Verghese, Olam International chief executive


Abbott still thinks climate is ‘crap’
The Abbott Government claims it takes the science seriously, but its roll back of carbon pricing, support for coal mining, attacks on renewable energy and refusal to put climate on the G20 agenda at a crucial point in history demonstrate that it does not.


“The G20 countries are the world’s most important economies. They account for the lion’s share of global greenhouse gas emissions. If the G20 gets its house in order, the world can be saved. If not, the G20 will wreck the world, pure and simple. Brisbane is therefore crucial. The prospects are not bright. The Australian Government claims it is driven by science, but it seems to us on the outside that it is driven by mining interests, or by the likes of Rupert Murdoch, the world’s number one anti-science propagandist.”
Jeffrey Sachs, Special Adviser to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon on the Millennium Development Goals

The new ‘housing bubble’

Australia is not only being “selfish” in its failure to cooperatively address climate change, but it is failing to see it for what it is: the “new housing bubble”.

US Republican Hank Paulson says the same mistakes are being made with climate change now that were made in the lead up to the 2008 financial crisis, and domestic commentators agree that Australia’s backward steps do nothing but increase these risks.

MIT Study: Climate talks on path to fall far short of goals
Under countries’ current climate pledges, greenhouse gas concentrations would exceed 530 or 580 parts per million by the end of the century. Experts at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology using a sophisticated computer model examined what they think is the most likely outcome of UN climate treaty negotiations and found that the talks are likely to come up short. Facing a deadline to reach a new treaty by the end of next year in Paris, the world’s nations seem unwilling to make the kind of pledges that would rein in global warming to safe levels by century’s end, the researchers concluded.

Monster Climate Petition

Inspired by what Victorian colonial women did in 1891 to press their claim for voting rights (in what became known as ‘The Monster Petition’), members of VWT asked themselves: “Could we provide a mechanism for a huge numbers of Australian women, men and children to give voice to their concern about the almost total lack of national leadership on securing a safe climate?”

They can and they have! It is called the Monster Climate Petition and you can download and view everything to do with the petition right here: www.monsterclimatepetition.com.au

Every one of us can sign our names, including our children. Climate change affects us all. Start with your own signature, and then gather signatures from your household, family and friends.

Women all over the country have a huge collective power to ensure that hundreds of thousands of women, men and children put their names and signatures to this Petition to our House of Representatives.

After you’ve gathered as many signatures as possible, mail all the signed petition forms back to the VWT office (details at vwt.org.au) by 8 November 2014, before the G20 Summit in Brisbane to show the world how many Australians care about climate change.

Friends of the Earth: No coal or gas

You can join Friends of the Earth in their call to the Victorian government, saying: Stop dangerous coal and gas mining in Victoria

Friends of the Earth Melbourne wrote:
“The Premier Denis Napthine has said that ‘there will be no fracking on my watch’. This is a good development, and builds on the current moratorium on fracking and onshore gas drilling activity. It is now time to directly support communities that have declared themselves coal or gasfield free.

Eight communities in Western Victoria and 19 in Gippsland have completed their surveys and received overwhelming support to declare themselves coal and/or gasfield free. In community polling in Seaspray, Giffard and The Honeysuckles, in Gippsland, 98% of people supported the proposal to declare the area gasfield free.

It is time the government listened to the community and ruled out any drilling or mining in areas where communities have made coal and gasfield free declarations.

The government has the power to exempt areas from mining. Will the Premier and Energy and Resources Minister support community demands?
