The Australian Government’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority’s web site claims if conditions (sea temperatures) don't improve within weeks, the corals will eventually starve and die. The website claims coral bleaching “is not always fatal”, but has been one of the main causes of coral death... blah blah etc.
The Carbon Sense Coalition today urged people to celebrate the true green fuels – oil, coal, gas, nuclear and, in places, geothermal and hydro. The Chairman of “Carbon Sense”, Mr Viv Forbes, said in a Press release this week that these fuels have reduced man’s pressure on the environment to such an extent that they should be celebrated on “Earth Day”.
Despite the scathing review, Greg Medcraft's term as ASIC Chairman was actually "extended" by Treasurer Scott Morrison in order for Medcraft to implement a $121 million recovery package Morrison convinced the Banks to pay for. Blimey, that’s like convincing a condemned man to help build the gallows.
This would involve the removal of half of his bum and five otherwise healthy organs – “My bladder, bowel, prostate, colon and rectum-- and for the rest of my days I will have to carry both a colostomy bag and a bladder bag.” This was not a good read in The Australian while having my Weet Bix but Graham Richardson is determined to battle on in excruciating pain. Like me he probably has a young son in mind.
For decades Australian governments have waged a pointless war on industries producing carbon dioxide using taxes, emissions targets, direct action, harassment of coal and gas explorers and bankers, and promotion of expensive weather-dependent green energy. This has damaged all metals industries – iron and steel, copper, nickel, aluminium, lead and zinc.
I don’t always agree with the left leaning academics of the Western world. Fortunately, there are a few areas where we can find some common ground.
Most Americans and Australians believe the current US election is a Federal Presidential election. It’s not! All posters here know it’s a two Party struggle to find their best respective candidates and, despite the protests, any party can select whatever candidate it wants for an election to be held later this year. The GOP doesn’t want Donald and the Libs didn’t want Bronwyn. Poor Bronwyn.
Bill Shorten thinks he can make truckies responsible and stop them taking drugs. Little does he realise that without speed pills there would be a semi trailer accident on every bend with dead people strewn everywhere. Private truck operators do it really tough and they don't need to be unionised by Shorten.
The Aboriginal Father Christmas addressed the Press Club today in a room of fawning Lefties and he wants greater representation in Parliament. Well, Aborigines have been over-represented over a long period thanks largely to Captains’ picks on parachutes into the Senate.
I have mentioned before that I don’t watch television. Sunrise is another vivid example of why I avoid it. The story was titled the Violent Protests over Halal Food. No, the violent protests were initiated by the lefty thugs who act like fascists trying to shut down peaceful demonstrations. By the way, no-one on that panel, including myself had anything to do with the protests.
Six years of Rudd, Gillard, Rudd left Australia with its pants down around its knees, in deep debt, with a bare cupboard, China in decline and a sense of hopelessness. This coming budget will make no attempt to even begin to address this Labor induced disaster because an election will be held soon after and the Libs will refuse to give Shorten a dozen free kicks. This is a classic Turnbull stuff-up.
Muslims will never give up their intention to build these ghastly monuments of noisy dominance over the landscape. That is what they are ordered to do and have the finance to do, the problem still exists, not for the Gold Coast, but for other people in other areas who will need to fight to prevent these un-Australian edifices that are central to terrorist activity.
The relentless war on carbon is justified by the false assumption that global temperature is controlled by human production of two carbon-bearing “Greenhouse Gases”. The scary forecasts of runaway heating are based on complicated but narrowly-focussed carbon-centric computerised Global Circulation Models built for the UN IPCC.
Most people, including Bill Shorten, will claim that smoking causes cancer and if we can stop people smoking the health bill will diminish and people will live longer. Um... if they live longer the health bill will increase! It’s the aged who are responsible for the health bill blowout, so why not save a fortune and allow them to die sooner?... Give the poor old buggers free tobacco!
The Gold Coast is awash with drugs and if you want the celebrity status of owning nightclubs then it’s best to know the law well. I won’t go near night clubs whether they are owned by family members or not, they are dangerous places where, like VLAD laws, mere association can be a crime and it’s impossible to know the ages of who you are speaking to.
