Saltbush Launches an EXIT PARIS Campaign.

By Viv Forbes,

Executive Director of the Saltbush Club

The growing Saltbush Club has announced a national campaign to support Australia’s immediate withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement.

The new group aims to prevent ratification or local enforcement of the Paris targets and taxes.

The Executive Director of The Saltbush Club, Mr Viv Forbes, said that Australia will suffer badly from the destructive energy policies being promoted in the UN’s war on cheap, reliable hydro-carbon fuels such as oil, diesel, gas and coal and the backbone industries that rely on them – mining and smelting, farming, fishing, forestry, processing and manufacturing.

“Australia’s electricity supply is particularly vulnerable with no nuclear power, no geothermal power, limited hydro power and growing obstacles to gas exploration. This war on natural hydro-carbon fuels is denying our industries and consumers the cheap reliable power that is needed for more industries and jobs.

“There is no justification for the ceaseless war on oil, coal, cattle and cars – human production of carbon dioxide and methane has no measurable effect on global temperature. Earth’s climate cannot be tweaked by uglifying the hillsides with windmills, plastering the flats with solar collectors, funding Climate Jamborees, subsidising electric cars, buying bigger batteries or putting more taxes on coal or diesel.

“CO2 is naturally sequestered by oceans and the biosphere. Burning natural hydrocarbons merely supplements the natural carbonaceous nutrients in the biosphere - already world food production and global forests have benefitted from the small increases in carbon dioxide plant food in Earth’s atmosphere.

“The Saltbush Club intends alert the public to those foolish politicians supporting the Paris hobble chains and to support those patriotic and sensible people opposing this destructive deal.

“We have prepared a summary of Ten Reasons for Australia to Exit the Paris Deal. This leaflet will be distributed widely shortly.

“We will also collaborate with all other groups that oppose the Paris Deal, including but not confined to Advance Australia, Rite-On, the Australian Conservatives, the Green Shirts, the Yellow Vest Movement, PHON, the LDP, the DLP and sensible elements or individuals within Katters, Liberals, Nationals and ALP.

“We are not hopeful of finding anyone among the Green politicians with a climate/energy policy worthy of support (but we keep hoping).”

“Believing carbon dioxide is the planet’s climate control knob is pretty close to believing in magic.”

– Dr. Richard Lindzen

Leave now! ScoMo has no hope by staying in it!

People believe what they're told, they are told C02 is the problem, it's not, never was, never will be. To change their attitude will be difficult as they were taught rubbish for the last 20 years.

We should use the slogan "Take Back Control" in our efforts to stop the slide into the chaos which will result in a Labor win next election.

Wrong Brian - you're here!

Rooftop solar is putting too much power into the grid in WA. Western Power are dialling up the voltage to around 260V which will cut out most solar inverters. They do it in selected areas to control their grid requirements - from the horses mouth.

Bwian , for Christ sake get back under your rock and stay there. Give us a rest in 2019

Those really popular battery powered cars may take a bit of power in their charging?

The question was addressed to you briankhyslop.
Your actions to date indicate some form of gutter living parasite, but we need more details to be sure just what sub-species that you belong to.

What sort of lifeform are you briankhyslop?
Obviously not human.... please provide a couple of clues.

Just announced that Boris Johnston is planning to make a major speech outside of parliament urging that the primary motivation that propelled the original Brexit vote be honoured. That should be something worth waiting for. This bloke has remained in the shadows for too long. All the exposure has been of May's rejected plan and the need to have one. The 2016 vote was not based on a plan. It was based on emotion, ie, the desire to be in control of ones own destiny.

Let us see who among these"Sniveling,Cowardly,Lying,Do Nothing,Career Politicians"has the balls to stand up to these"Puppet Master"of the UN.They along with the EU"Globalists"are responsible for this"Charade"called first "Global Cooling"then it changed to"Global Warming"then to"Climate Change"It is all a scam perpetuated by these"Communist Traitors"

If the Poms seek an extension past 29th March then Brexit is lost. Dithering and prevarication will continue indefinitely or until May is deposed as PM. What she comes up with on Monday will be interesting but no doubt carved to fit a majority of already canvassed opinions and the result of that will be that the EU will agree so that Britain remains a captive state with less influence than it had before. Instead of win,win,win it will be lose,lose,lose.

At the end of 2016, more than 24% of global electricity was produced by renewables, dominated by hydropower, and with wind contributing 4.0% and solar 1.5%. For all energy, renewable energy – excluding traditional wood-burning – contributed 10%, overshadowed by the 80% coming from fossil fuels such as oil and gas.
Take away Hydro from "renewables" and look what is left "globally".

Nothing wrong with BK.At least he writes sensible stuff!

Thanks, Viv. Dr. Lindzen's remark sums it up perfectly.

And yet, there you are.
