Friday’s Fulminations

There is mild moderation.  Normal rules of blogger etiquette and courtesy to blog hosts will apply, with serious transgressors being thrown out.

Unfortunately our system does not allow your comments to show up in the blog post itself.  Just in the comments section.

Visitors might consider the wisdom of using moderate language.

  2. Be interesting to see how many renewable proponents mention the real possibility of batteries catching fire and the risks from them.

  3. I think in Germany and Austria its illegal to park a electric vehicle in an underground carpark.

    If they catch fire they burn for 2 days plus incinerate everything close to them.

    Oh dont forget the toxic fumes.

    A stupid German couple bought an EV to travel to the south of France for their summer vacation. Took 28 hours to complete an 8 hour trip. They documented it!

    Cause: Range was not as advertised. Charging stations not working , as advertised. Had to use low charging sources and partial charges.

    Oh dear, never mind. Just teething issues of new technology

  4. LOL

    PEOPLE HAVE KNOWN THIS FOR DECADES: Study rates New Zealand best place to survive global collapse. Though some may prefer collapse to living under Karen-in-Chief Jacinda Ardern.

  5. Oh Shit, Oh Dear…….thats going to cost…

    A toxic blaze at the site of Australia’s largest Tesla battery project is set to burn throughout the night.

    Key points:

    A 13-tonne Tesla lithium battery is on fire near Geelong
    The battery was expected to be ready later this year
    It was due to be the biggest battery in the southern hemisphere
    The fire broke out during testing of a Tesla megapack at the Victorian Big Battery site near Geelong.

    A 13-tonne lithium battery was engulfed in flames, which then spread to an adjacent battery bank.

    More than 150 people from Fire Rescue Victoria and the Country Fire Authority responded to the blaze, which has been contained and will be closely monitored until it burns itself out.

    “If we try and cool them down it just prolongs the process,” the CFA’s Assistant Chief Fire Officer Ian Beswicke said.

    “But we could be here anywhere from 8 to 24 hours while we wait for it to burn down.”

  6. Why is this airhead apologizing for things that happened before she was born?

    Will National call her out on it? Fat chance

  7. Yeah and where is the apology from their side.?

    Deliberately breaking the law. Hiding law breakers and evaders.

    Diverting resources from proper law enforcement.

    And what benefit did we get…oh yeah clogging up the health system, degrading the education system.

    But I guess most of them can play sport, thats all most Kiwis seem to worry about.

  8. Oh stop complaining guys. This is good politics. A costless and easy way to keep the Pasifika on Labour’s side despite all the social Leftism and screwing their tradies and workers on the energy front.

    It’ll work too.

    Mind you, I’d love if it some clever Pasifika lawyer decided to exploit the apology (admission of guilt by the Crown) to obtain “compensation”. 🙂

  9. No Wucking Furriries there Tom… like a rat up a drain pipe its opened the victim door for some shithouse lawyer.

    I just hope there is a white privilege lawyer with the white balls to counter claim.

    I grew up in Auckland in the 70’s when these pricks were everywhere, evading their legal responsibility to return to Samoa or where ever.

    At least we had white privileged working class Poms from the dregs of Tyneside to off set that economic drag.

    Of course many of the Islanders were hard working dedicated people, but the second generation was where the social issues came from. And are with us today.

    Like Maori education is valued below sports. But living on a Pacific “paradise” reduces the incentive to innovate, and combined with a stone age political system spells disaster for advancement.

    • But don’t forget about the welfare, eh?
