GREEN ENEMIES OF THE ENVIRONMENT

There was a time when true environmentalists strove to protect wild things. Now the green shirts have become enemies of the environment by pushing green energy and demonising the building blocks of life - carbon and carbon dioxide.

Wind turbines and their cobweb of connecting roads and transmission lines have destroyed native trees and grasses, scarred and uglified wild hilltops, and littered continental shelves with naval and aerial obstacles. They create wind and rain shadows and decimate resident and migratory birds and bats.

                                                          California wastelands

 Industrial-scale solar is no better, stealing sunlight from every plant that tries to live in the shadow of the panels. Solar-thermal arrays have the additional trick of roasting any birds, bats and insects which fly through their focussed rays of heat.

These green energy toys produce piddling amounts of unreliable weather-dependent energy at great economic and environmental cost.

Greens also promoted diesel to replace cleaner petrol in vehicles. Thank them for more urban pollution.

Their promotion of ethanol and bio-diesel has caused the widespread conversion of cropland and clearing of natural vegetation and forests to grow industrial crops like corn and palm oil. This has also reduced food supplies, increased food prices and forced some poor people to poach in parklands.

And the stupid promotion of burning wood for power and home heating has taken some cities back sixty-five years to the era of London smogs. Forests are again being cleared and wood smoke is again choking urban communities.

None of these expensive and destructive activities will have any measurable or beneficial effect on global temperature.

So, what is the real agenda?

They're selling LPG to Japan and China for around 3/4cents and here in the domestic market they charge us $1.40. Now they complain they're running out???? We really do get the government we deserve. But I must say, I'm bloody pleased I don't live in Vic or S.A.

We are heading towards a third-world power system very rapidly.
.
Parts of it are quite low reliability at the moment — South Australia in particular because of a very large quantity of renewable generation.
.
Victoria, following the closure of the Hazelwood power station in March, will become increasingly unreliable and that will have implications for the interconnected states of both South Australia and New South Wales and it'll have a knock-on effect right through to Queensland.
.
We currently don't have the technology in place to manage our power system reliably with very large quantities of renewables.
.

We have to find technological solutions to overcome that.

Federal Government has 'no policy'
.
[The Federal Government] has no policy to achieve the Paris emissions reduction pledge it itself on a national level.
.
But it is critical of the states who have stepped into the policy vacuum created by there being no national policy.
.
The state governments — in particular Victoria, the ACT and Queensland — have committed to quite significant renewable targets by about 2030-35 of about 50 per cent.
.
If nothing changes, we actually achieve the 28 per cent reduction with no national policy.

Turnbull's renewables turnaround

.
Malcolm Turnbull has made a stunning turnaround from urging zero-emissions energy to spruiking "clean coal" — seemingly in the face of climate science, Stephen Long writes.
.
So the Federal Government gets the opportunity to criticise the states for these schemes for being expensive and leading to greater insecurity, which will certainly happen, while claiming the benefits of the emissions reduction.
.
No sign of Canberra working to fix the situation
.
It's very hard to arrest a decline in the quality of a power system; it takes a lot of very bad decisions to get to this point.
.
Given the way that the politics are panning out right now in Parliament, it doesn't look like as if we've got any movement towards an improvement.
.
We've now got the Federal Energy Minister parroting what Penny Wong said seven years ago about the Emissions Intensity Scheme.
.
Labor criticised the Emissions Intensity Scheme back in 2009; Turnbull at the time supported it.
.
And that's completely reversed.
.
The Emissions Intensity Scheme was the policy the Labor Opposition took to the last election.

After Malcolm Turnbull lost the leadership of the Liberal Party, in December 2009 it was Chris Joye singing Turnbull’s praises in offering support for the idea of a Turnbull-led third party to split the Liberal vote:
.
Chris Joye, a leading investment banker and former professional colleague of Mr Turnbull’s who also worked with him at Goldman Sachs and sat with him on the previous government’s Home Ownership Task Force, this week used his blog to promote the new party idea.
.
He said Mr Turnbull moved into politics for the right reasons and possesses “more care, love and passion for this country in his pinky than most of his political peers exude through their entire being”.
.
“Perhaps following this fracas the big fella will throw caution to the wind and found his own political party,” he said.
.
“I am thinking of the Australian Republican Party with an unconditional commitment to combating climate change and reinvigorating the dormant republican movement.
.
“Now that would be sure to split the Liberal Party vote.”
.
Today Chris has detailed his thoughts on Turnbull’s actions and involvement in the current political fracas:
.
First, we take as given that Malcolm is very smart and highly strategic. The shenanigans in recent weeks were not just a random bull-in-a-china-shop episode. There was method to the supposed madness.
.
Chris goes on to outline what might be Malcolm’s assessment of his own political position, before moving on to considering his incentives for his present actions.
.
Which brings us to the key point in which I strongly disagree with Chris’s base premise:
.
Next, consider Malcolm’s incentives, which help shed light on his actions. Unlike almost all other politicians, Malcolm currently has nothing to lose. He is extremely wealthy, and can opt out of politics and pursue a life of leisure at his choosing.
.
Au contraire!
.
As we have seen (“Compassion For Malcolm – He Just Wants His Balls Back“), Malcolm Turnbull has something very important to lose indeed.
.
Goldman Sachs’ “confidential settlement” made on Malcolm’s behalf, to save his hide in the $500 million HIH lawsuit, is the greatest incentive driving Malcolm Turnbull’s political career.
.
Chris Joye argues convincingly that what we are seeing now, with an ascendant Abbott and the Coalition outpolling the Labor/Greens on an anti-carbon trading policy platform, is Malcolm Turnbull embarking on a “kamikaze” run:
.
If he truly believes that it is in the best interests of both the nation and himself to lead the party, and have a shot at running the country, he has to create a catalysing event. It is too late for him to stealthily build support with the backbench. Most are now a lost cause. But time and human self-interest are on his side. It is over two years before the next election.
.
Malcolm’s most powerful solution is to go into Kamikaze mode and compel a ‘survivalist’ partyroom response. This is a risky strategy, but then Malcolm has what is known in financial markets as a “call-option-like” payoff function. He has a helluva lot of upside if he can pull it off. And if he does not, he has little to lose.
.
The Kamikaze strategy involves blowing up both Abbott and Hockey…
.
Chris’ most telling comment of all comes in closing:
.
An objective analysis would conclude that there is risk that the polling does not get much better than this. That, surprise, surprise, the party, with Malcolm’s prodding, cannibalises itself. The big fella once said to me, You capitalise on chaos.
.
A remarkably similar motto to the infamous Ordo Ab Chao.
.
Order out of Chaos.

ABC - Female traffic light signals to go up at pedestrian crossing as Committee for Melbourne tackles 'unconscious bias' Hey what about me! As a beer drinking lout I want to be represented too. I can feel a complaint to Ms Triggs coming on.

Hold the Front Page! Unless it's a hoax/false news/no news, I've just heard the dumbest thing eva! Melbourne is to change the figure depicted on pedestrian crossing lights to the silhouette of a WOMAN; all in the name of equality. Apparently the cost is $8000/6 lightsets. Just done a quick calculation on the back of a beer coaster ( favourite socialist alternative to s spreadsheet..see NBN) and I reckon I'll do it for 40 cents per lens. I'll paste on HALF a skirt on each one, so they are All Bisexual. Jobs right.

The Palasczuk labor government is promising jobs jobs jobs. More like Lies lies lies like they lied before the last State election to get into government conning the gullible that voted out Campbell Newman’s progressive party. Billy Shorten and his labor/green mob are promising jobs jobs jobs right now. Anyone who believes that is so gullible and stupid they would believe in “climate change”.

Hear we go again. Huge denial from the Lefties both here and in the USA regarding the bugging of the Don's phones. When will these leftie mutants realise This guy has evidence. Remember his comments on Sweden?. I hope he does do the monkey over big time. The monkey may not have ordered the bugging. But did he any of the info that's the question?

MORE than 90 per cent of surveyed refugees granted permanent visas under the previous Labor government had failed to find a job within three to six months, forcing the majority to rely on government welfare to survive, a new report has revealed. Despite 80 per cent claiming to feel “welcomed by Australia”, the social difficulties they faced were immense, according to the first government study to follow the new wave of humanitarian -migrants.
Almost half reported they had never had a job in their lives, and 15 per cent had never attended school in their birth country. Almost 40 per cent reported not understanding or speaking English, with only 10 per cent having a university degree and just 6 per cent being qualified for a trade. Only 7.8 per cent had qualifications recognised in Australia. As a result, only 6 per cent of all those followed in the Building a New Life in Australia (BNLA) report, to be released today by the Department of Social Services, had found a job. The main source of income for 88 per cent of the refugees at the time of reporting was government payments. THANK LABOR FOR THAT.

Yeah, right.

Mark Levin PROVES Trump Wiretapping Claims: ‘The Evidence Is Overwhelming’ #ObamaGate

The people have family, jobs and lives, we take the time to vote and then hope the job will get done properly, but now it seems not only do we have to feed the dog, but we have to bark as well.

Ralph Blewitt`s excellent recent letter to the WA police, which will get him a meeting with the WA police in the next weeks. Ralph is still after Gillard and I wish him all the luck that is needed in this venture.



Dear Detective Sergeant XXXXX,

I have recently become insulin dependent in the management of chronic Diabetes Type 2.

My wife and carer Ruby and I are adjusting to managing daily insulin injections and I have to be a little more prudent in managing my movements with a lot more pre-planning.

May I ask a few questions about my attendance at your offices “to deal with the matter”?

Will I be under arrest?

Will I be under caution?

Do police anticipate charging me with any offence(s)?

If so what offences?

If so will I be bailed, remanded or summonsed to appear in court?

Will I be permitted to leave Australia and return to my home in Malaysia after the meeting with you “to deal with the matter”? (my wife and carer Ruby does not yet have a long term visa to remain in Australia).



Background

Since late 2012 I have been available to and actively assisting police in their enquiries about the secret commissions paid by Thiess executives through the AWU Workplace Reform Association and the associated frauds, forgeries and other offences that I observed and was a part of from 1991 to 1995.

I want to tell all that I know - and I wish to co-operate with police and the courts by pleading guilty to the offences I know I helped others commit.

I am, however, not willing to cooperate in the furtherance and coverup of the offences of my co-offenders, particularly Julia GILLARD and Bruce WILSON.

I did not set out to commit any offence of my own volition.

I will not plead guilty to charges singling me out to take the fall on behalf of others. I was part of a criminal conspiracy. I didn't have the ability to do what I did without direction of others.

Every time I offended during the 1991 to 1995 course of conduct I did so at the behest (as Ms GILLARD put it during her exit interview from Slater and Gordon) of Bruce WILSON and/or Julia GILLARD.

Where I completed the application to incorporate the AWU Workplace Reform Association, so did GILLARD.

I wrote what GILLARD and WILSON told me to write.

It would be unjust and wrong just to charge GILLARD and not to charge me.

These were offences in which we were jointly involved. The same applies in reverse - it would be dishonest and unjust to charge me but not to charge my co-offenders WILSON and GILLARD as we were acting together.

When I signed the false document, Specific Power of Attorney I knew that GILLARD was not in the room to witness it. I knew the document was not signed on 4 February 1992 as it falsely states. I knew I was creating a false document and I admit to that offence. However I did not act alone and I am concerned that the courts and the public would get the wrong impression about the criminal behaviour involved in making that false document if GILLARD and WILSON are not charged with me.

When I conspired with WILSON and GILLARD to buy the Kerr Street property I wrote out a cheque for about $67,000 from the AWU Workplace Reform Association cheque book. The entry in the Slater and Gordon Trust Account ledger says the money came from me, not the association. That is false. I know that Bill Ludwig’s lawyer Con Sciacca sent a fax to GILLARD’s law firm on the day I paid the money in. The contents of that fax can only have been in the furtherance of fraud and I will consider it a neglect of police duty if that fax is not seized and produced for me to consider - as it is apparently central in the efforts to fraudulently represent that the $67,000 came from me and not the Association GILLARD, WILSON and I fraudulently set up.

Detective Sergeant, I will tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. There is a very important proviso in that statement - that it is the whole truth.

I didn’t set out to create the AWU Workplace Reform Association. I wouldn’t have a clue where to start. I did not brief any lawyer to act for me or to give me legal advice about incorporating the association. GILLARD was not acting as my lawyer, she was in on the conspiracy.

I look forward to meeting with you to tell all and “to deal with the matter” in its entirety once and for all.

Regards Ralph Blewitt.

To immunise a baby under two years with a single shot of a minimum of three different antivenenes at any one time, places extreme stress on the immune system of the recipient. It is medical madness. Remember these vaccines, in general, may be the weakened, but live virus, or may contain a product (toxic compound) of the virus. The immune system has to develop its own immunity to each of the viruses, at the same time! This places a high level of stress on the baby's immune system. There is no reason why each of these vaccinations cannot be given singly, thus lessening the stress on the infant. The unavailability of the single shot is due to an attempt to 'cut costs'. However this is at the expense of the health of the baby receiving it!

Now with James Clapper coming out to defend his old mate Obumma and flat-out deny any covert surveillance of the Trump campaign while there are dozens of media releases confirming a court order was sought mid year and denied, asked to go away and narrow the parameters which was GRANTED in October. Clapper caught in a straight out lie. Be interesting to see how they spin this one. Gowdy and Chavez might be working overtime on this?

A new chemical pill has been approved in the US for the left-wing to get over their anxiety over Donald Trump....... This is priceless...................
