What Solid Energy has in common with Nazi Germany and apartheid South Africa
So what does Solid Energy have in common with Nazi Germany and apartheid South Africa then? All three wanted to use lignite to make liquid fuels, that's right, it's coal uber alles brothers and sisters as Solid Energy try to quietly slip by that they want to produce the dirtiest, filthiest most-polluting form of coal into liquid fuels.
Solid Energy claim the 12 million tones of lignite they intend to produce is an efficient use of resources that will also fuel a 500MegaWatt power station. But brothers and sisters, we have 1000MegaWatts of wind power and between 360Megawatts and 630MegaWatts of hyrdro power yet to be tapped into, so why, oh why would we use the dirtiest, filthiest 18th century technology for the 21st century?
Solid Energy's boardroom sounds like it is a bad version of Back to the Future with coal eating zombies wandering around hungry because there are no brains to eat.
Clean coal is like good cancer, it doesn't exist.
