TAPP will ban Coal Seam Gas mining In Australia because we believe it is harmful to the environment and it approaches Australian citizens Property Rights.
(This is something you will notice every time you pay for your electricity.
Since 2004, your average household bill has risen over $500 and is now flagged to rise again. One can only imagine the rise we will suffer if more of our electricity is sold to money-hungry corporations.
It’s just not right that corporations (many foreign owned) end up getting the benefit of what has taken hard working Australians generations to build and pay off, particularly when the generations that follow are left to pay the price, every day.)
TAPP will nationalise our power stations hydro and coal and give it back to its rightful owners the people of Australia. As a government TAPP will build more Clean coal power stations and more Dams for Hydro Power. We will also put more research and development into Green energies, also new technologies such as water powered cars and a Maglev transport system.
TAPP knows Australians have worked hard over the years to build and develop these assets and today, should be reaping their rewards and benefits. Our roads, ports and railways, water and electricity, the Snowy River Scheme are all infrastructure we should be immensely proud of.
The situation though, is that both of today’s bigger political parties seem determined to place these assets in the hands of multi-national corporations, selling them off in order to fund superficial projects aimed, not at bettering our country, but at protecting their own jobs at the next election. Time and time again, this has proven to deliver nothing but higher prices, and the loss of jobs.
TAPP will dismantle the wind generated power stations where they are not wanted because we believe they add nothing to the environment and are a waste of tax payers money and are an eye sore to our wonderful Australian landscape. All this will be done using our Section 51 of the Australian Constitution. [Please watch this Video]
TAPP will move forwarded into the future, we will work hard and put more research into Green Resourceful Fuels like Solar Energy, Wave Power, Hydro & Geothermal including research into Water and Air powered Cars.
TAPP will not be looking for or Implementing Nuclear Power nor uranium Mining
How Geothermal Power Works
Geothermal power or energy works by harnessing the heat generated by magma in the core of the Earth. Although it might seem complicated it’s actually a very simple way of generating electricity.
Deep underground there are rivers just like on the surface. These rivers are actually quite hot as a result of magma flowing near or around them which heats the rock surface that these rivers flow through. Geothermal power plants work by drilling down to these underground rivers and extracting the water to the surface. Once at the surface this hot water is circulated through pipes over an additional pipe containing a fluid that has a lower boiling point. This low boiling point means that the fluid will become a vapour and thus be capable of powering turbines to generate electricity. After the vapour is used to power turbines it is condensed and recirculated back into the system.
The recirculation of the vapour fluid and reliance on heated water as the energy source means that geothermal power is a renewable energy source and also has low emissions. The reason it is low emission and not zero emission is that the water contains low amounts of nitric acid, sulphur, and other pollutants that get released. However, the amount released is less than 1% of that released by coal or other traditional power sources.
The primary advantage of geothermal power is low land use, renewable energy fuel source, and it is highly scalable. Disadvantages include the vapour fluid being corrosive and thus maintenance intensive, the emissions, and the vapour fluid is kept at a low temperature limiting the efficiency of the heat engines used to generate electricity.
TAPP will also look into using alternative methods such as turning rubbish into fuel using Thermal Depolymerization.
