BERNIE BRIQUETTE IS BACK: NEW YALLOURN PLAN >

RE-THINKING BROWN COAL – BIG BOOMS, BIG PUMPS, BIG STICKS? WHY ABOUT MENTIONING FRESHWATER REQUIREMENTS? CLEANING UP THE MESS. TAKING THE WATER BACK.

Created by the State Electricity Commission – Victoria (SECV), from the period of 1950 to 1960, Bernie Briquette was a popular comic figure who featured on print advertising, billboards, inaugural television advertising, and at sporting events. During the late 1970s he was mothballed; except for an appearance in Ted Hopkins’ second publishing work ‘The Yallourn Stories, 1982 (Champion Books: Melbourne)’…

Everybody wants ‘fuel’, wants ‘electricity’, ample freshwater and then all up; want ‘less cost’. There was a time when brown coal did the job. Not anymore; it provides excessive carbon dioxide and water levels that are continually drop further down. Bernie at his best; rethinks ‘brown coal’.

On behalf of Sold the Dummy online publishing, he starts with the post DRONES – HAZELWOOD POWER STATION AND PONDAGE. Which asks: what’s the difference between the ruins, heritage signs, regeneration, hinterlands, flats, pumps, and permits?
