We have a vision of a cleaner, cheaper energy future made possible by the electrification of our houses and transport. This vision is heavily influenced by Saul Griffiths and 'Rewiring Australia'.
Confronting Four Aussie Myths About Action Against Climate Change!
In reading and listening to much corporate and social media commentary and in conversations I have with people there seem to be four very common Aussie myths about climate change and energy and actions we need to take!
All of these myths need to be challenged!
MYTH 1: ‘Coal exports are essential to our future economy’ – WRONG!
This is a question I am asked often when people talk to me about ‘climate change’
Simple answer –
WEATHER – is the day-to-day conditions of things like:
*sun [sunny, cloudy, partly cloudy, overcast] and temperature, [hot,warm,cold]
*precipitation [drizzle, showers, rain, dew, frost, rain, storms, hail, snow]
*wind - strength[gentle, light, strong, gale, tornado] & direction

If you are looking for places to recycle some more things that you can't- shouldn't be-putting into local council bins - here are a few suggestions:
Officeworks Stores generally accept:
* mobile phones; DVDs; CDs; USBs; ink and toner cartridges; computers and accessories
Aldi stores - have receptacles for batteries [and hearing aid suppliers often accept hearing aid batteries for recycling]
* From Faradion website - check it out! Watch the video! Check out the Na-ion website! nationenergie.com
* Faradion is a UK company [now also based and selling in Australia as Nation Energie, Level 2, 1 Collins Street, Melbourne
* They have produced and are selling batteries based on salt crystals! - no lithium or cobalt here! - just saltwater!!
* The batteries are made from recyclable plastic - so all components are recyclable - over and over again!
