THE Federal Gov­ern­ment just needs to com­mit to urgently build­ing a clean coal power sta­tion with an op­er­a­tor other than the ex­ist­ing ones.

They can build it at Jervis Bay which is part of the Aus­tralian Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory which has all the nec­es­sary re­quire­ments with it be­ing close to a coal sup­ply and wa­ter.

Many coun­tries over­seas are build­ing th­ese clean coal power sta­tions to pro­vide base load power sup­ply.

The South Aus­tralian gov­ern­ment so­lu­tion of bat­ter­ies and gen­er­a­tors is like plug­ging a dyke of a vol­cano while it erupts and not ad­dress­ing the is­sue.

In the south­east sec­tion of Aus­tralia, May and June are pe­ri­ods where cli­matic con­di­tions make re­new­able en­ergy gen­er­a­tion dif­fi­cult due to the lack of wind and fogs.

KEN HOCKING, BUNDALONG Not good given the length of some of them roads. Why don’t they fix the roads up in­stead of mak­ing the people suf­fer.

SAGE, WAN­GARATTA I don’t drive so what opin­ion can I ac­tu­ally give. But I think it’s too slow. 100 seems rea­son­able.
