The LNP state conference was just 3 old real estate agents short of banning sex because it might lead to dancing.  [Possum Comitatus, commenting on conservative politics in Queensland, Twitter,  8 July 2018]


Trump is not an unusual American president with contrarian ideas. He is an off-the-charts repudiation of everything the United States has stood for since 1945: representative government, liberty, the rule of law, free trade, a rules-based international order, open societies, pluralism and human rights.  [Journalist Roger Cohan, writing in The New York Times, 9 July 2018]

Local Embraer EMB-550 Legacy 500 Bizjet N142GZ Completes Flights out and back to Mackay Airport "IndyWatch Feed Capricornia"

It was a busy day at Mackay Airport on Tuesday 10 July for locally-based Embraer EMB-550 Legacy 500 bizjet N142GZ with it noted completing two flights to Brisbane and one back into the sugar city.

UPDATE!  N142GZ reversed its Tuesday flights on Thursday 12 July completing two flights from Brisbane into Mackay Airport and one back to Brisbane.  I suspect that N142GZ might have ferried people to and from Brisbane to watch the third State of Origin rugby league game.

As mentioned below, late on Tuesday 10 July, LifeFlight (Aeromed) LearJet 45 bizjet VH-VVI "Ambulance 451" touched down at Mackay Airport from Brisbane.  It returned to Brisbane a little while later.

UPDATE!  On Friday 13 July, fellow LifeFlight (Aeromed) LearJet 45 bizjet VH-CXJ "Ambulance 452" made an early arrival into Mackay Airport from Townsville.  It later departed to Brisbane.

Meanwhile, on the lighter side of movements into Mackay Airport, Piper PA-31-350 Navajo VH-TTX was back on Tuesday 10 July arriving direct from its Toowoomba base and departing to Bowen and Gladstone Airports before returning to Toowoomba.

UPDATE!  VH-TTX did the same on Wednesday 11 July.

Also on Tuesday 10 July, Vanderfield Pilatus PC-12/47 VH-WPH arrived in Mackay Airport from its Toowoomba base via Biloela / Thangool Airport.  It is due to depart to Emerald Airport and stay for the night.  VH-WPH is then due to continue to Roma Airport on Wednesday 11 July.

While Brisbane-based Piper PA-30 Twin Comanche VH-ZOO departed Mackay Airport for Archerfield.  It had arrived on Sunday 8 July.

Finally, a pair of interesting helicopters visiting Mackay Airport also on Tuesday 10 July included Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue Bell 412 helicopter VH-ESD which was noted visiting from its Townsville base as "Rescue 521".

While Parklea (Air Services) (of Victoria) Agusta AW109SP helicopter VH-CZT was noted depart...

Malcolm to the rescue of power prices "IndyWatch Feed Politics.au"

Checking the AEMO Data Dashboard at 4.30 we find Wind and Other delivering 2.7% of demand, propped up by a strong performance by the NSW windfarms. Go the Blues. Nothing in SA and the price sky high.

Malcolm just sent me a copy of his speech in Brisbane, I dont have the stomach to read it but I am prepared to share.

The temptation was too much.

So the choice is going to be very clear, at the by-elections and indeed, at the general election next year, lower prices under our technology neutral customer focused National Energy Guarantee, or higher prices under Labors reckless renewable energy subsidies.

As ACCC Chairman Rod Sims said just this morning, Only a technology neutral approach will get prices down. Whenever Governments prescribe that the technology should be one thing or another, thats when you get higher prices.

Now, repairing the mistakes of the past means, obviously, planning to ensure that renewables are reliable, and clearly that was the huge oversight neglected in South Australia.

Now, Snowy Hydro 2.0 will help lay the foundation for the future of our more flexible energy system, providing a grid scale, 2,000 megawatt battery in the heart of the system; improving reliability and security across the grid; enabling new technologies to be safely integrated.

Pray for rain!

Meanwhile in the USA emissions drop, in contrast with Europe. Not really a good thing given the CO2 level is still sub-optimal for plant growth but Greens should be surprised and pleased.
