It's high time for large investments in
energy efficiency and into the build-up of the renewable energies.
Congratulation to Australia! The change
of government to Kevin Rudd will ring in the solar age in Australia.
The new Prime Minister of Australia, Kevin
Rudd, announced directly after his election that his government will
«address with "great urgency" the pressing challenges
of climate change and water».
The new Australian government wants to
increase the use of renewable energies strongly in order to create a
mass-market and to bring down the cost of solar energy, wind energy and
other renewable energy technologies. Also planned is a billion-budget for
research and development of 'Clean Coal ' and renewable energies.
Just a few months ago in May 2007 John Howard, the
Australian Prime Minister at that time, said: «There are only two ways to
produce energy in our country: We can burn our fossil fuels or build nuclear
power plants.» John Howard ignored thereby - just like the Iranian
president Mahmud Ahmadinedschad - the gigantic energy potential of large
solar power stations (solar chimney power plants, parabolic reflector power
plants, photovoltaic solar power plants, etc.) and of wind farms. He
also ignored, how much space, sun and wind exist in Australia as natural and
John Howard was voted out. The
rumours about possible nuclear power plants in Australia became obsolete by
the triumphal election victory of Kevin Rudd.
Since each nuclear reactor contains the radioactivity of
approximately 2'000 nuclear bombs the size of Hiroshima, this dedicated
«No to nuclear energy» is a globally
responsible and an economically sustainable decision. 3)
A rapid and solid build-up of renewable energies in
Australia will also give an important international signal to countries such
as India, Pakistan and Iran. This is a chance for
peace, economy, security, independence and ecology in these globally
important regions. 4)
landslide victory, «Kevin Rudd immediately declared his government would
address with "great urgency" the pressing challenges of climate change...»,

Natural Power is electricity produced by 100% renewable energies (Solar,
Wind, Water, Biomass, Geothermal).

contains also a portion of solar electricity, or change your supplier.
All households using natural
