    Now if you had pulled this info out you’d have had to use a much lower cost for Mirai in Japan in 2014 of $57,000.. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_Mirai

    “Sales in Japan began on 15 December 2014 at a price of Β₯6.7 million (~US$57,400) at Toyota Store and Toyopet Store locations. The Japanese government plans to support the commercialization of fuel-cell vehicles with a subsidy of Β₯2 million (~US$19,600).[12] Retail sales in the U.S. began in August 2015 at a price of US$57,500 before any government incentives”

    So what is your point of using the inaccurate more expensive example of $70,000 for Mirai?

    New technology snags, development costs are high, nothing new there. What’s your point on new techs costs? No relevant point at all… The fact that the car is for sale and renewable hydrogen produced at parity to fossils fuels is available, it is to be celebrated.

    How many times have I heard people, read their comments, over the years that this would never happen… “Greenwash” comments I recall, of prejudice personalities, who can’t take on new information and alter thinking.

    Point in case, photovoltaic panels weren’t affordable for every roof either in their introduction, look where we are now – I have 22 on my roof, off grid. Enough surpluses to produce hydrogen for vehicles onsite.

    It’s a good thing Toyota are offering for sale an incredibly environmentally sound zero emmissions vehicle at an affordable price. Look at the costs of a new landcruiser! I know you understand these hydrogen cars and numerous other vehicles will only become cheaper as will renewable hydrogen as production numbers and cheaper fuel cells in the next few years go into vehicles. You know cost falls upon increasing scale of production, right? New tech has renewable hydrogen produced onsite of refilling stations at half of current price in two years.

    Here’s Toyota’s prime-mover hydrogen truck.

    ITM Power produces renewable hydrogen for fuel cell electric vehicles.

    You could find their price per Kg.

    Obviously no takers in over 3 years to answer this question. I said I wasn’t going to “spoon feed” answers to questions that people can readily find the answers.

    Hydrogen is a gas, so it’s sold by weight not by the litre… Right?

    I’m not sure where online you’d get a small amount of Rhodes Grass seed, as far as my experience goes online it’d be a min 20 – 25 kg bag. You’d have a better chance calling around local rural suppliers asking if they have an open bag where you should be able to buy by the kg.

    There are a number of Rhodes Grass varieties too, Callide, Fine Cut, Katambora… It depends on what’s the requirement, as for the variety! More info… http://www.daff.qld.gov.au/plants/field-crops-and-pastures/pastures/rhodes-grass

    If not Abbott, the military is planning for climate change and war.

    http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/comment/blogs/blunt-instrument/plan-for-weather-or-plan-for-war-20131001-2up77.html

    Some paragraphs and sentences pasted here from the story, Plan for weather or plan for war.

    “The science of climate change will never be settled for some of these bastards. The salt water will be lapping at their front porch, the storm surge sweeping up the goddamned street and they’ll still be whining about some fragment of data that shows some glacier somewhere didn’t melt away into ice cubes for my martini shaker nearly as quick as those corrupt science boffins said it would.”

    “Military planners the world over have begun to fund research into the conflicts they know are coming. Some of that research involves making armed forces greener, simply because reliance on fossil fuels is a point of critical failure, and failure in war means death and defeat.”

    “The US military, the Australian military, the Brits, the Chinese, all of them with any sense of the long game, they’ve all started to plan not just for climate change but for climate conflict. When nations cannot feed themselves, when they cannot guarantee the security of their populations they do not act rationally. They lash out, or rather those in power lash out, often seeking scapegoats or plunder to draw attention away from their own failure.”

    What we’ll get with the LNP is mining everywhere.

    “the commonwealth led by a LNP government would hold a “use it or lose it” policy for mining leases that would set an example for state governments.”

    Howard’s plunderous sale of Telstra.

    Greens Unearth Massive Rort of Telstra Environment Funds

    media-releases

    08 Jul 1998 | Bob Brown

    Environment, Biodiversity & Natural Heritage / Heritage

    Millions of dollars are being filched from the Natural Heritage Trust to pay for capital works on the Hume Dam, Resources Minister Warwick Parer confirmed today in the Senate. He was replying to a question from Greens Senator Bob Brown.

    “The Federal Government has admitted re-allocating $12 million. If each of the States contributing equally to the repair of the Dam is doing likewise, then up to $48 million has been rorted from the so-called Natural Heritage “Trust”.

    “This is money that the Prime Minister guaranteed would be spent on the environment. Senator Parer today was unable to give any guarantee that the re-allocations won”t continue.

    “This is the first hard evidence of millions being diverted from the $1 125 million Trust Fund, set up with money from the sale of one-third of Telstra. Labor claims of mis-allocations of tens of thousands of dollars from the Telstra funds pale in comparison.

    “Environment Minister Hill and Primary Industries Minister Anderson are solely responsible for spending the Heritage Trust money. It is now clear that they are mis-using it to pay for departmental commitments that have absolutely nothing to do with the environment.

    “Further, the money is being taken from the Murray-Darling 2001 component of the Natural Heritage Trust which is supposed to be used for improving the health of river systems, encouraging ecologically and economically sustainable land use, restoring river bank land systems, wetlands and floodplains, and improving water quality”, said Senator Brown.

The doctor said she would of got it anyway….. And those few words changed the way I look at immunisation…

    Imagine the likely effects of a full-blown infection of chickenpox.

    Apart from all the usual symptoms we know of, I just read that, “Chickenpox is believed to be the cause of one third of stroke cases in children”.

    “They”, the NSW voters, a few years back didn’t care what NSW Liberal Party offered too, they also just wanted to vote out the NSW Labour Party.

    “Live and learn” (said when, one is surprised to learn something).
