History repeating - 1920s


In The Great Depression hundreds of millions of people suffered real deprivation. Their minds and behaviours were catastrophically affected by this serious situation.

In desperation the masses sought leadership forward and they got Franco, Mussulini and Hitler.
Their values were slowly morphed along the way, and Fascism took hold in a most dangerous way along with Nationalism.

Hitler destroyed the unions and the socialists, and took particular aim at The Jews and forward communism. National socialism was a ploy and not Democratic Socialism.

In the world today, many commentators have used immigration to describe the growth in nationalism throughout the world. When Trump was elected as The Republican candidate it was said, “Damage done”. Recently Anthony Albanese in Australia, indicated that poorer voters were not happy with what “they have” in their minds, which is their perception. The people affected amount to hundreds of millions of people in the free world, that can relate to the difference.

What is it really ?

It’s big like the big part of an iceberg under the water, and on top are the “triggers”. Trump, Brexit and Nationalism are all triggers, for the  root cause I believe is a perceived deprivation by the masses, similar to last century in The Great Depression.

To this extent is history actually repeating  ?

With global risk and instability on the increase, energy security is essential.

Right wing politics is spreading like a cancer, trade wars are looming and a GFC2 is coming. Add timing stress for global warming and we are heading towards a complicated period between years 2020 and 2030.

Further to this Quantum computers capable of smashing blockchain security systems are closer to year 2025, notwithsatnding the massive benefit and change that will happen in medical science, engineering and new material science.

With solar PV been predicted to become cheaper than carbon central commercial electricity by year 2025, and battery/other storage getting cheaper, the "writing is on the wall". The energy transfromation will be near complete by year 2030.

Australia now predicts embedded solar PV/storage to be at 90% for consumers both private and business,by year 2030.Micro-grids as well will integrate with utilities, so the poor and underprivileged are covered first.

Electricity in Australia

The underlying design principle is that there is an amount of electrical power that is in constant demand, known as baseload. At night coal fired power stations “tick over” so a base lowest level is demanded, and such stations must keep running without stopping. When demand peaks during certain times of the day, such as in the morning when people wake-up and prepare to go to work or the evening when they return home and start operating appliances or plugging in their electric cars, utilities activate "peakers" or generators that sit idle most of the time so they can meet dynamic demand during these peak cycles. Managing these ever-changing loads is required to balance the utility's system, and peak cycles have always been difficult for utilities.

Coal fired power plants never lay idle because you want to keep them operating at their peak performance.
All decisions now moving forward are critical, as we are at that point, an irreversible process from here on. It’s going to …
