This piece on the Corona virus is doing the rounds today:
“The year 2020 – The year all of China will weep. The omens will be so bad that the New Year will not be celebrated. Then the plague will come. It will come with a fury – the tigers and the wolves will hide in the mountains. The plague will encompass all the land – and will eventually spread to the whole world. Very soon – rice will become so expensive that no one can eat. Then the rivers will sink all the boats. People in that year will only be able to harvest rice in the very early spring. There will be no harvest of late season rice, beans, wheat, and oats because vast clouds of locusts will lay waste to the entire countryside. I, Gentleman Zigong, assure you Chinese in 2020 that the locusts will fall from the skies and the destruction will be complete. Smoke and fire will fill the fields – but nothing will be able to stop the swarms. Once the locusts have destroyed the land and the smoke is still coming from the ground, the rivers will flood the countryside. I, Gentleman Zigong, will tell you Chinese in 2020 how to survive. Remain very close to your families and your neighbors. The best is to have stored up plenty of gold and food to live and share freely with those you love. Tolerate no thieves among the people. Be uniters and not dividers. If you can do all these things, you will survive.”
While the virus may just be dangerous for the old, already sick and inform, there is nothing more destructive than collective fear. If you do not feed the animals in the stables then the animals will die and rot, which will cause more disease. It is a vicious circle.
So there are many suggestions from people around the internet to stock up on food and medicine. But if you’re living in Australia, I would focus on dry food that does not need to be refrigerated. Because the neglect of the once wonderful electric grid for the purposes of Green infestation is now reaching end game proportions.
What sort of market generates a huge negative price for something where the windmills are only producing half of the power that the state is using?
What happens when all of the other pending RE capacity comes on line?
What happens on a windless evening at dinnertime when Liddell is gone and some other coal burner is down for maintenance? Regardless of the installed/plated capacity for solar and wind power.
Beat the rush and get a generator!
It’s all happening, folks.
