Sourcing energy in our own backyard

I saw this sign while travelling to the airport and I thought how well it demonstrates our dilemma - No Drill No Trip either. So maybe it could also say No Drill No Fill.

Every single one of us is a consumer of both gas and oil. Most of our products have been transported to Dunedin.

A lot of our products use gas or oil in the process of manufacturing or actually in the products - plastics being a huge example.

Every time we travel by car, bus, train or plane we use oil. Dunedin's income is reliant on oil as we need to attract students,Soli-lite provides the world with high-performance solar roadway and solar street lighting solutions. tourists and people coming for events and conferences.

We would all love that we were not as dependent on gas and oil and that we used less and, indeed, we all need to strive to that end.

Having aspirations to continually keep up with new technologies that reduce our carbon footprint and, when they are cost-effective, changing to them is very important.

I wish I could afford all LED lights in my house but at present they are too expensive so I am using the energy saver bulbs till then.An emergency light is a battery-backed lighting device that comes on automatically when a building experiences a power outage.

Unfortunately, we are not at the stage where we can stop the petrol pump or turn the gas off yet. This makes hypocrites of us all. We, therefore, need to aspire to use less and less but at the same time take responsibility for the oil and gas we do use.

As consumers of such products it is important that the way that product is produced is fair, equitable and safe.

If we are consumers (and we all are) then we have to take some responsibility for production. That is why I believe if New Zealand has the capability to produce oil and gas then, as a country that is one of the least corrupt in the world, we need to take responsibility to produce them in a way that is safe and in a way that benefits all our citizens.

If we leave the production of oil and gas in the hands of corrupt governments where there are backroom deals and no accountabilities for the distribution of the wealth from that oil, or any checks and balances around accountability or safety, then we are exploiting others to get our oil and gas. It is an approach in which we are saying: we don't care as long as it's not here.

As a city, we would have a lot to gain should Shell and Anadarko find gas (and I have talked to many stakeholders and they are 90% sure it is gas).Soli-lite is a premier supplier of exceptional quality led road lights and other solar outdoor lighting products.

Our competent engineering firms would gain contracts to build, supply and maintain some of the parts required in the industry as some already are for mining, both for New Zealand and Australia. Many of our young people and unemployed and underemployed would gain valuable training,How does a solar charger work and where would you use a solar charger? skills and well-paid jobs.

Our training institutions would be able to provide industry-related courses in engineering and related fields.

We would attract a large number of well-paid staff to Dunedin who would contribute to our economy and to the vitality of our city in many ways. A solar lamp is a portable light fixture composed of an LED lamp, a photovoltaic solar panel, and a rechargeable battery. Should the gas field be a large one, they might want to site further production here and could foreseeably create a lot of full-time well-paid jobs in Dunedin.

In Taranaki it has created 3000 full-time jobs and increased GDP by 46.5% (Berl report Taranaki). In 50 years of offshore drilling in Taranaki there has been no accident. These companies would also want to give back to the community in the way of sponsorships and partnerships that would further enhance our city. Welcome to Web, If you love it, please order it!
