Maybe I wasn't paying attention but when did A Protocol for Monsters get renamed Emergence? Loved the original title and the new one clashes with David R Palmer's great.

Over Christmas and New Year when Ms insomniac's 20-something daughter was staying with us, just about every movie we watched together on the teev had racks (I'm assuming that is the collective noun) of boobs, and copious quantities of rooting. As a man, I didn't really care, but I gather the others found it uncomfortable at first, and afterwards, still uncomfortable; never hilarious.

I have this problem with HBO as well. Racks as a substitute for plot. Not that I mind, but it can be hard to convince Mrs W that a series is worthy of our time commitment because of its multi-layered *cough* story telling.

Forget HBO ... it is getting preety rough on the networks ... the wife and I were binge watching the first season of The Americans and one scene had their 14 year old daughter walk into the married protagonists bedroom without knocking and finding her parents, not doing the dance of the camel with 2 backs, but in a laying on their sides, across the bed, doing 69 with the man with his back to the camera and blocking the woman with man tush in full view. The hilarious part was when the wife's head, errrr, bobbed up from behind the husband's legs in surprise.

"At first it's uncomfortable, and then it's hilarious" could be the description of NT politics at the moment. The three bush MLA's led by Brown snake Anderson have skipped out of the Country Liberal Party and have now joined Palmers United Party. This is really going to be hilarious. If incompetent, corrupt government wasn't so hugely expensive for the rest of us it would be a really fine piece of theatre. Anderson comes from Alice Springs which is a violent, corrupt dump of a place whose main claim to fame is the low IQ of it's inhabitants. Alice would have to be the biggest scam perpetrated on foreign tourists ever.

The bosses have a solution for the underclasses lube drought. They have this neat little process that converts coal to oil. Of course it's hideously expensive to produce and fatal to the environment. I'm afraid ideology has nothing to do with it. This world is ruled by BHP and Rio Tinto's gangster energy tycoons, money, corruption and violence. Ideology is a smokescreen. The new opium of the masses. The best we can do is try and preserve the parts of our own local environment that aren't corrupted, and therefore aren't wanted, by the corporations. When the masses eventually say fuck you there may be pockets of hope still existing.

Anthony swirls their brandy and claims...

Posted April 18, 2014

Having worked on the Brown Coal Liquefaction (Victoria) pilot plant in Mowell for the entire seven years of the project, I can assure you that coal to oil is not hideously expensive to produce. The Coal Liquefaction pilot plant in Morwell had a break even price of oil at $60/barrel. The reason for not proceeding to an eventual commercial plant was that there was no immediate need as oil supplies became reliable again.

The rationale behind the project (which came out of the first oil crisis) was to ensure that sufficent oil supplies would be availble for emergency use in the event of supplies becoming unreliable for whatever reason.

It's also not particularly worse for the evnironment than any other use of oil and is a lot better than using brown coal for electricity generation. The "fuck you" atttudes can be nicely shown by the removal and sale of fire fighting equipment from the Hazelwod open cut mine wich diectly contibuted to the recent issues.

While we certainly need to move away from fossil fuel use (especially the use of brown coal since it's particulaly nasty stuff to burn) , the argument for doing so is not helped by exaggerated statements. When you make statements that are provably wrong you give the "fuck you" lot a free kick,

Coal burning however is by far the worst contribution to greenhouse gases. The coal industry is very happy to see more and more emissions regulations coming in for motor vehicles as it distracts from their contributions. Motor vehicles world wide conribute around 18%. Until proper renewable methods of power generation occur, implementing more and more electric vehicles merely adds to the pofits of the coal industry. It doesn't particularly decrease greenhouse gas production. It does shift visible polluton away from cities but the same greenhouse gases are still emitted fom the generators.

Tnterestingly I've yet to hear about anyone protesting the Indian cattle population which contributes 18% of all methane to the atmosphere.

Posted April 18, 2014

Give me a break. If it was $60 a barrel and not environmentally bad we'd be making it right now and stiffing the arabs for their $100 a barrel high sulphur content crap. What happens to what's left of the coal when the oil has been taken out? Hideously expensive is the cost of the whole process not just the end product. For example I understand that there is a very high use of water to refine this stuff and a problem with what to do with the waste water as well as the coal waste. Interestingly though there were some really good statistics on the abc last week about how owning one dog is the equivalent of two landcruisers as far as green house gas goes. This included the cost of food production to the environment for the dog as well as waste emissions. As for the Cows in India. They are sacred and can't be touched as is the fossil fuel industry. I do agree about the false feelgood factor of electric cars though. I wonder what wonderfully clean power source the people that drive them think that their chargers are plugged into.

In many cases, solar - and at least they are trying to do something positive, not ignoring the problem or sitting back and whigeing about it.

Halwes swirls their brandy and claims...

Posted April 18, 2014

Unfortunately trying to be positive isn't going to work. The greenhouse gasload of an electric car construction is very high as is the cost of manufacture and transport to the vehicle manufacturing site of the batteries. I'm pretty sure that hydrogen power is the future and mucking about with expensive, hard to dispose of batteries as base load sources shouldn't be where all our research and development dollars goes. Then you get back to vested interests and corruption, big coal and corruption and politics and corruption. Trying to be positive doesn't cut it with this mob.

We need to find out the real names of these people in this "advertisement", and then find out their employers, and have a word with them about reviewing their employment conditions. If any of them are public servants, or related to public servants, we can at least warn them of the recent edict from the PM & C's office that it is against PS regulations for public servants, or their families, to criticise government policies even anonymously or in a so-called private capacity in off-working time. A Note needs to also be made in their File. They're also ignorant because they obviosly cannot spell 'cognitive dissonance' or understand the current correct philosophy of combined neo-liberalism and post-modernism as brlliantly demonstrated by Mr Hebderson on ABC TV's Lateline recently ~ http://mpegmedia.abc.net.au/news/lateline/video/201404/LATs_WedForum_1604_512k.mp4

We took PNB's advice for the Super Bowl gathering I attended.

PNB's Super Bowl prescription : Buffalo wings (it's actually chicken) washed down with Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA (7.2% alcohol).

Well, it worked. When the wives arrived at 5pm, they encountered 4 blokes deeply asleep. Wow, that really was an opiate-like satiation. We could see why they call that beer Torpedo.

Hon Senator Brandis, Attorney General and Minister for the Arts, has just announced the Abbott Government's policy on the climate change "debate", no doubt ahead of his colleague, Hon the Minister for the Environment, Mr Hunt, rolling out the Government's direct action policy.

Because this is a Commonwealth Government Minister saying this, it is Govcernment Policy, and all public servants are duty bound to support it, and the more loyal will actively promote it, not only through their work but also privately, because public servants, under the new PM & C edict, must not have opinions which differ from those of the Minister.

Am certainly not advocating that anyone try opium. Was merely quipping in response to another comment. Around the turn of the century some 25% of males in China regularly used opium. It wasn't an accident. Given the rise of use if opiates, such as OxyContin in the US am making the observation that if you want populations distracted, lethargic, indifferent, there is no opiate like opium. Do not try it. And no, have never tried it myself.

I am concerned about marketeers degrading the public's perception of authority by using the trimmings & trappings of authority to peddle their wares. If I was consistent I'd also be worried about parodies dressing as Coal execs. But Fk 'em.

History is littered with villains who have profited from the exploitation and degradation of others. Those in control of Union Carbide knew precisely what they were risking in Bhopal. Ditto the owners of the Exxon Valdez, and the BP Deep Water Horizon rig. I just hope that at some stage they'll be dragged squeezing from their calf-skin upholstery and held to account.
