Big Solar BBQ in Hackett

By Barcham 25 March 2013 21

Climate Change Canberra are throwing a Solar BBQ to celebrate 19,000 Canberran homes using solar panels, and to answer questions for anyone still on the fence about making the move to solar power.

The press released doesn’t state whether the barbecue itself will be solar powered, but I hope so because that would be awesome.

Sunday April 7th. 12.00 -3pm
Expert speakers on Solar Energy in Canberra
BBQ, Music
The BBQ will be in the gardens opposite 15 Hackett Gardens, Turner.
Have you got solar panels or are contemplating it?
This is a chance to ask questions about joining the solar future.

Lawrence McIntosh: Co-ordinator of the Canberra Clean Energy who are about to launch a community solar farm that you can co-own.
MC: Caroline LeCouteur

Vegetarianism (or worse, veganism) specifically for the sake of the climate impacts of you nutritional source is ignoring the most important things if we have any chance of actually changing the current course.

There is no single ready to go solution to all these problems – solar can’t replace all other energy sources any more then coal could – saying meat bad, vegies good is equally off the planet.

A mix of energy sources/food sources/other resources are needed to support the human population of the world – the trick is to use the least damaging where possible and to price those things in a way which reflects the cost to the system rather then the subset of the cost which affects the seller.


Tofu is only good when in a laksa with seafood, chicken and pork.
