John Liddell presenting at the Rotary Club of Point Gellibrand

What an entertaining night we had this week!! Our guest speaker John Liddell opened our eyes to the prospects of life after Zero Carbon, where electrical power is generated from passive solar and wind systems rather than carbon burning thermal systems as at present.  Cutting edge one might think BUT do-able by 2020 according to John provided we get the vested interest sceptics and politicians away from blocking the way forward.

What’s this photo??  It’s the first baseload Gemasolar power plant that now operates in southern Spain (yes Spain might have it’s current financial problems but they can see through the haze toward a more sustainable tomorrow)!
