Great headline

November 8th, 2011 at 12:00 pm by David Farrar

The Southland Times proclaims:

Labour wants inquiry into

Fans of Battlestar Galactica will share my amusement. Those who are not, can check the urban dictionary.

I’m wondering who will head up the inquiry?

    Claire Curran probably has the most experience with this issue. Or perhaps David Parker (former Energy Minister and such). Or perhaps they could do it together.

    So do like those involved wear BSG costumes? especially the camp 1980′s type

    But seriously Labour wants to ban all mining, oil drilling and just about any other economic activity and yet bemoans National for not catching up with Aus for income.

    Imbeciles all

    The Greens are getting all exciting over renewable energy technologies.

    The problem with pinning their hopes on this is much of what they propose relies heavily on subsides to survive.
    The only true way to assess the viability of investing such technologies to strip away ALL subsides (including some that non-renewable effectively get) and compare all options. Strengths and weaknesses, synergies and disruptive technology features. Only then should one consider putting good money into it.

    Despite various partisan rantings from both sides opportunities do exist, good opportunities but fantasy land economic illiterate plans will do nothing but destroy confidence in the sector. The trouble is I fear the Greens will come a cropper with some of the (expensive) technologies never being viable in their present form without government subsides.

    A recipe for disaster, economic loss and ultimately loss of confidence
    On the other hand the good technologies (they do exist, I know) could do with a hand both in R+D and more importantly removal of red tape

    I much preferred the original, classic Battlestar Galactica-With Apollo and Starbuck and that old guy from Bonanza…and the Sylons were way cooler. Well at least that’s how I remember it from watching it after What Now on Saturday mornings (circa 1984)….

    In the original series I believe it was spelt “frack”. However, for Ron D. Moore’s modern re-imagining, they changed it to “frak” so that it would be a four-letter word.

    It was a disaster when Telecom tried it, why should this be any different?

    Is fracking the activity engaged in by homosexual couples. Why would Labour want to cease their main recreation.
