What is demand management? Is it similar to the technique used here Post-WW2, when demand for electricity outstripped supply - Blackouts?

It is a shame that people are putting around the myth that only people with a vested interest in the coal industry or those that suffer from the NIMBI syndrome are opposing wind farms. There is a real threat to birds and bats and, especially in Australia where solar energy could provide most of our energy needs, wind farms are not needed. It is true that global warming is the greater threat but the loss of countless birds and bats to wind farms is not acceptable when there are alternatives (solar and demand management).

If you follow your line of argument further Dave we could reopen the duck season in NSW and allow egg collecting as these impacts are not as great a threat as global warming.

Sorry for buying into this again but the earlier comments had to be answered.
