Poverty and the Environment

Desperately poor people focus on feeding their families and have no spare energy to support secondary concerns such as the environment.

Destitute societies also see large families as free labour and old-age insurance. Thus poverty inevitably produces growing populations and environmental degradation.

The industrial revolution, powered by abundant reliable energy from coal, oil and gas, provided rural labourers with better-paying jobs in industry and government. With kerosene tractors, iron ploughs and no draught horses to feed, farmers had more food to sell. Food prices fell, cities grew, and society supported more culture, conservation and welfare.

With increasing prosperity western families became smaller, reducing birth-rates below replacement levels thus moderating population pressure on the environment.

Today’s green policies are reversing these centuries of progress. They are restricting mining, farming, forestry, fishing and heavy industry by delaying approvals, denying access to land, increasing taxes and the dole, and making electricity more costly and unreliable.

These policies destroy industry, savings and jobs. Chronic unemployment undermines the ability to support arts, environment, welfare and overseas aid. Green charities like the climate industry will also suffer.

Western recession and UN promotion of green energy will also increase poverty in the third world where swelling populations will further degrade their environment.

Societies are becoming angry.

Today’s Green Shirts will produce tomorrow’s Dark Age.




I’M OFFENDED JULIA, WHY DIDN’T YOU ASK ME? I do really good portraits

Sydney's sister city of San Fran... or is it brother city?


Massive new coal mines approved in Queensland...dumb shits of a government have gone for royalties only. Why not get the Indian company to build half a dozen coal fired power stations and deliver free energy to the State...the you would see progress and more earned than 90 year of royalties. Dumb shits.

You're a legend viv. I see poverty trend ever growing here in the Philippines..

Worth a Captain Cook:

....heading for a Dystopia....The book, Fahrenheit 451 comes to mind.....

Congratulations Viv ...... FIRST coal from Stanmore Coal’s Isaac Plains coal mine in Queensland is on schedule to be mined next month after the company appointed its main contractor and finished recommissioning equipment that it purchased from the mine’s former owner Vale.

There is no point arguing any more Viv - the science is settled. The killing will commence before the year is out.

One for the Greenies

Never a truer word spoken Viv!

How old were you Lights? Why did you not do it? I did not because I was only 10 when we left; mother told him on several occasions "wait until he's (me) a man". His second wife's brothers beat him to death when I was 17.

When there is food on the table, there are many things that can be discussed; when there is no food on the table there is only one item for discussion.

What do you think would be the most dangerous tech on earth for mankind to get hold of ?

The ability to create their own energy for virtually nothing.

Overnight the world control system would collapse and we cant have that.

Control the possible and you control what people believe is possible.

And MC, yes that is an Icke quote ... here is another one for you personally.

'he comes from the Richard Dawkins school of the concrete mind'

All part of the plan to fully enslave humanity. It is not about clean green energy or saving the planet is is about scarcity and making you feel guilty for even the air that you breathe.

If you cant see this coming on the horizon I would suggest you are living in a dream world which has been sold to you by the elite.

I have a relative that bred kids, ignores them, thoroughly enjoys the free welfare handouts, smokes and eats before worrying about her tribe of kids and watches tv on the lounge. Day in Day out!!! Great! And all the Waffler can talk about is SSM and Climate Change. Really???

Qld report backs CSG on water concerns

Wednesday, 30 March 2016
Anthony Barich
THE Queensland government has issued independent research that shows CSG operations will produce 26% less water over the life of industry than previously estimated just as a review of Queensland’s Gasfields Commission has been launched.

This series is about the elite controlling the rest of the population, and in the end revolution. Unfortunately that is where our civilisation is now on earth. Current economics drive what happens now, I don't see a solution that anyone even the elite are going to like!

Electric aeroplane...who needs aviation fuel?

I also think there is a 'shadow government' pulling strings, and it doesn't necessarily reside on Oz.There are some powerful people out there who want total control of our world, and they are not all muslims.

Derelict mines program
Another costly offshoot of Fossil Fuel Freebooters Viv will never write about.

OT. The head Bhuddist Monk in Thailand is being pursued for undeclared wealth. Now that puts the cap on it....If the Monks are being investigated for ill gotten wealth, that is the very end for Religion. Those Cults that are not obscenely rich, are disgustingly perverse. Religion is finally on the skids,,,,NO MORE WAR!
