The problem with the green energy twins, wind and solar, is that they are unionised.

The solar panels won’t work at night, or when it is rainy or cloudy, and they rarely work a full eight-hour day.

The wind turbines will down tools at every drop of the wind, and they also refuse to work in high winds.

And like every closed shop, they demand pay rates far beyond their market value.

No one has a solution to these restrictive green work practices.

Viv Forbes is a geologist/pastoralist who has walked along or been flooded by many rivers of Qld and NT. He and his wife have fed starving stock in the droughts and carted water for them. They have built, deepened or repaired at least 23 farm and station dams and managed construction and operation of mine dams. When Viv was employed by the Queensland State Government as a field mapping geologist they inspected the Nathan Gorge Dam site in 1964, 60 years ago. This dam was first proposed in 1922. It is still undeveloped over 100 years later.
