Community groups call for end of anchorages in local waters

There are 33 commercial anchorages in southern Gulf Islands waters

https://www.vicnews....n-local-waters/

And I call for a 100% duty on goods delivered to these groups via freighter.

I guess more transfer payments to Quebec and the maritimes.

Oil spill off San Juan Island 'pretty well impossible to clean up,' expert says

Oh well, I presume it dilutes and dissipates eventually.

Canada's oilpatch is flush with cash — so what are they going to do with it?

Why spend it on wealth transfer infrastructure like large-scale carbon capture and storage projects, which could help the country meet its climate goals.

10% of the UK’s population is headed for “energy poverty” due to rising energy costs.

In parallel, there is an enormous effort to not diversify energy, but to force everything into electricity-only energy. Homes, cars, businesses and public transport, all are being corralled towards electrification exclusively.

Or 50%.



More than half of UK households risk being pushed into energy poverty this winter by soaring bills that threaten suppliers with rising amounts of debt that simply can’t be repaid.

The crisis could have a bigger impact on households than the 2008 financial crisis, according to consultancy Baringa Partners. The bleak warning comes as bills are set to surge roughly 80% from October, just as the arrival of colder weather boosts energy demand.

Half the pubs could close.


The bosses of companies owning almost half of the UK’s 47,000 pubs said tenants were already giving notice because they could not cope with energy bills, which are due to rise more than fivefold in some cases.

Unlike households, businesses do not benefit from a cap on what suppliers can charge for gas and electricity, leaving many firms facing oblivion without state intervention.

I’m no expert, but can’t you build an LNG import port in about 3 months, if you REALLY had to?

I watch hours of UK news every week. Everyone agrees this problem is coming, but nobody has great answers, including the new PM that will be sworn in on Tuesday.

Canada is developing a clean electricity standard. Does Hawaii have lessons for us?

https://www.cbc.ca/r...ndard-1.6570224



The article fails to mention user electricity costs.


Our average electricity price in 2011 was a little over 11 cents.

https://www.globalpe...tricity_prices/

In Hawaii it’s around 33 cents.

Hawaii and Canada are so similar in terms of geography, climate and population. It's the perfect jurisdiction for us to emulate.

Like with housing (locking developable land, building code changes, net-zero), the good intentioned are going to walk us straight into an energy affordability crisis, and fight for it.

It’s like the tobacco industry. It’s doing great since only two companies have an airtight monopoly because any new players can’t market themselves (pun intended). They sell less for more money with way less overhead. This is why Altria can pay an 8% dividend.

1995 City of Victoria energy resiliency:

- electric heat
- natural gas
- propane tanks
- heating oil tanks
- wood stove

2025 City of Victoria energy resiliency:
- electric heat

Meanwhile, we are being told storms are going to get worse, the chance of power outages will rise, and the severity of cold snaps could become an issue, as it has been the last two relatively cold winters.

Yes, that’s what I’m saying.

Hydro prices are going to rise 4.8% compounded between 2023 and 2024. You can imagine, that since those costs were calculated some time ago, there could even be an emergency increase added, or 2025 and 2026 are going to compound into the double digits.

Solar power is fine in the summer months, but what about October-April?
