I thought it was going to head into the Gulf of Mexico but apparently it is heading to Florida. Be interesting to see what happens to the next one following Irma. pale

Irma has been downgraded to cat 2. Cyclone Debbie that hit Ailie Beach earlier this year was cat 5 with winds over 300kmh.

Funny how 300kmh winds only put the lights out in the centrally located affected areas while a 110kmh wind in SA put the lights out over the entire state.

When you rely almost totally  on wind and solar power then you can expect total power failure during severe storms.

if this country is to survive with an ever increasing larger population and be able to maintain electric power at an affordable cost to the general population and without crippling our economy then we need nuclear power and Hydro Electric power and Coal powered electricity.
Even if it means we put a bit of pollution into the atmosphere (microscopic compared to other countries of equiv area and population) then that is what we will have to do. If we do not then this country will fall into the greatest recession it has ever known and we will become totally dependent on outside/overseas products.

If Australia shut down all of our atmospheric pollution producing industry tomorrow. In 12 months there would be no measurable change in the worlds total pollution levels and zero alteration to Climate change. but there would be massive degradation of our living standards...Australia is becoming insignificant in the grand scheme of things since Globalisation.
