Lemons will power Australia - climate expert

Spoof alert... In a shock new development, a climate change expert has proposed that Australia could solve its energy crisis by making billions of "lemon batteries" to supply endless renewable electricity. The suggestion follows the "lemon powered torch" that made its way across Australia to demonstrate support for a 50% cut in emissions by 2020. Speaking today, the expert said:
"I remember making a battery from a lemon in school science lessons. Recently, in a carbon-dioxide-induced haze, I realised that lemons are the obvious way to solve our energy crisis. Not only are they clean and green (yellow, actually, but you could use limes instead...) there will be millions of jobs planting and harvesting the lemons, then sticking bits of metal into them to make the batteries and wiring them up to the national grid. Not only that, but there will be plenty left over to squeeze into my gin and tonic after a taxing day at the office of my cushy climate-related corporation."

Not really, but the actual suggestion isn't much better...
