But our Govts since 2007 have done a great job of creating our home grown disasters vastly more costly than an outback nuke strike. In late 2016 we listed
Australian Government financial disasters. Also four years ago.
For what it is worth there has been a divergence last month with SA, VIC and Tas reducing in price. NSW reducing a little and Qld now more expensive than NSW.
AEMO source data – AEMO NEM Dispatch Overview – NemWatch is useful as a snapshot of generation type and demand. There was more wind in September than August but October started with a wind-drought. Large vers chart
When the news broke a while back I started following the ESDM site then there were the many evacuations – then the beast went quieter and I think the Govt said some could return to their homes. Prediction is very difficult. Anyway I thought I would share these links to graphics of seismic activity that look to be updated. I got my links from here
and the first is the well known Trend Amplitudo Seismik RSAM
A serious eruption such as in 1964 has potential to cool global climate for a while.

Last but not least their live – Seismogram page with each line = 30minutes. Swarms of little shakes.
Charts here of max t anomaly show you several previous Septembers were hotter than 2017 – starting with 1928.
The UAH satellites Australia band has eleven hotter Septembers.
You can make BoM max min and mean t anomaly maps – have fun.
Going back to the charts if you make a mean t anomaly chart for Australia – which gives you a relative idea of what goes through to IPCC globull-warming central – the Oz contribution heat wise last month was even more insignificant with many previous Septembers warmer than 2017. There – some perspective.
The ABC reports – Perth’s Kwinana Freeway will be permanently flooded by 2100, oceanographer warns – In 2012 I blogged To understand Perth sea-levels is a complex issue – much of the Perth plain has subsided in recent decades
We all made a fracking mistake, says former premier Bob Carr – try googling the headline if you get paywalled. Ex Premier Bob Carr forgets to mention the Eddie Obeid coal licence scandals that gave so much oxygen to the anti-miners and Green protesters. But why the NSW Govt went so far in changing the law around resources exploration is a mystery. We have got to this point after decades of Green-anti-development lies and exaggerations not being rebutted by industry and scientific/engineering experts. This has strengthened the ever present anti-resources industry groups who seized on the slick ready-made anti-fracking campaign imported from the US to increase their supporter base and level of activity. Now we have Green lawfare on an amazing scale, I read where there are 23,000 objections to the Santos Narrabri gas project EIS approval process.
Last week the New Zealand MetService was pushing – New Zealand in for a warm Sunday and Monday as heatwave heads over from Australia – I have had a quick look at temperatures for a few towns around Aotearoa but do not see the predicted heatwave anywhere. Have any New Zealanders felt a heatwave on the weekend or Monday?
