New book by Australian geologist Ian Plimer, 'The Climate Change Delusion and the Great Electricity Ripoff' … sure to zoom into the best selling lists. He is a professor emeritus in the Earth Sciences at Melbourne University and a professor of mining geology at the University of Adelaide. He has published numerous scientific papers, seven books, and is the co-editor of Encyclopedia of Geology. Ian Plimer infuriated the wind and sunshine lobby with his last book, 'Not for Greens' and going by the title, the CAGW mob will be unhappy with his new book as well.
The blurb on the jacket says it all – How did one of the world's largest exporters of coal, gas, and uranium, end up with unreliable and expensive energy. Massive subsidies for renewable energy are to blame – going against the free market. Electricity consumers pay for the subsidies and government mandates by non science politicos have cemented them – to the extent they do not want to lose face by removing them. Where is Guy Fawkes when you need him?
