Golden Point, a refuge for the living

Golden Point, a refuge for the living

At Golden Point on Sunday morning, it happened to be Spring Equinox. The luminosity of the shifting Spring skies, the threading of cool and warm breezes in between momentary sprinklings of soft rain and the silence was only interrupted by the lapping of wavelets on the rocky shoreline. We were held  in a few moments of deep calm, a few moments of reprieve from the information overloaded world of angst and disarray which fill the airwaves of our lives.

“Environment Minister Lily D’Ambrosio said the government supported the facility due to its potential to bring cheaper gas to Victoria. She said strict environmental requirements would need to be met before any decisions were made.”

Just one month ago, Daniel Andrews said on Radio Melbourne, “it is not a gas shortage, we produce in Victoria double the amount of gas that we use each year, about 405 Pda joules that what we produce, we use just over 200 pj’s every year.  What they’re saying (AGL) is that so broken is the gas market that they can land Australian gas back here in Victoria cheaper than we can buy it, it is a very, very broken system and they think there is an opportunity, not because of a shortage but because of market failure if you like to be very, very profitable.
