Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


Greg Hunt is fighting a losing battle over global warming and his renewable energy targets. They might be manna from heaven for hyperventilating Green warmists but these expensive targets are bullshit to Abbott and gaining less and less traction with realists. The globe is certainly not warming and, if it was, we should be over the moon about it.

While China opens a new coal-fired power plant every six weeks, we sit here playing with our antipodean dongers hoping the wind keeps blowing on our visual and noise polluting windmills and the sun keeps shining on our bird- and bat-shit covered solar panels.

Social engineers love green targets. But renewable energy doesn’t need targets, it’s already happening, hydropower has been here for yonks and it’s renewable. 

Cars need far less petrol, battery technology increases daily and, unlike the rest of the world, we haven’t even started on a nuclear clean energy program yet. 

Erwin Jackson, deputy chief executive of “The Climate Institute” said on Friday that, “Opponents of the RET say it is a market-distorting subsidy but,” he said, “that’s only true if you don’t believe in climate change.” Well, guess what Mr Jackson, most of us don’t believe in your climate change because, what you really mean is global warming, and if anything, temperatures have fallen over the past two decades.

Pickering Post contributor Viv Forbes said recently, “The costly RET can have no measurable effect on global temperatures. It imposes needless costs on poorly utilised back-up facilities, and increases transmission costs, network instability, capital destruction and operating losses for existing generators. Germany has already showed how to create renewable energy chaos – let’s not follow their sad example.

“And if the Green Senate refuses to abolish the Act, the Government can use its regulatory powers to change the renewables target from 20% to 2%, and the time-limit from 2020 to 2120.”

My contribution was, “It’s likely to be Abbott’s Brere Rabbit moment... ‘Please don’t throw me into that bloody awful green briar patch’.” 

Well, let’s not beat around that briar patch and tell the truth: Abbott is a warming denier as are most intelligent people. His Environment Minister, Greg Hunt, is a believer in anthropogenic warming and therefore has been rudely left out of talks to abolish the RET.

Joe Hockey’s claim that, “We might have to look at other ways to reduce the deficit” was clearly aimed at precious green garbage and any green undertaking Abbott may have previously reluctantly agreed to.

If the Greens want to obstruct the budget in the Senate then they can cop this RET obstruction right up their floppy fairy arses.

Renewable energy is somewhat of a motherhood statement that everyone will agree to, but the Left believes we are not to be trusted and need to be target-regulated. Even tho’ economics will ensure everything will eventually run on what the Greens call “renewables” anyway. 

Give it time, it’s happening all by itself and without additional billions the Greens want wasted.

The fact is that everything is already renewable, including wood, water, sand, ore, bauxite, oil, coal, grain, fruit, vegies, guano, even carbonated diamonds... it’s just a matter of time. 

And time is something Greens have always had a problem comprehending.


When people wake up to the fact that HAARP/UN conducted ChemTrails/GeoEngineering have been largely responsible for the weather patterns, they may eventually stand up to the NWO, coffer filling, Climate Change fraud.

And whats he thinking of doing with that poor Gerbil.

Jim Jim you are a fuckwit, piss off back too the ABC or the SMH.

"Green Lies and the Global Agenda"-------------------------------------------------The Agenda: Using false science to create a "global crisis"

Club of Rome: "In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill..."[1] The First Global Revolution, Club of Rome, an elite think-tank (David Rockefeller, Gorbachev, etc.) working with the UN.

Stanford University Professor Steven Schneider (Nobel Prize winner along with Al Gore): "...we need to get some broad based support, to capture the public's imagination.... So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts.... Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest."[2]

Christine Stewart, Canadian Minister of the Environment: “No matter if the science of global warming is all phony... climate change [provides] the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.”[3]

The Truth: Climates has always been changing -- 1000 AD was warmer than today

Atmospheric physicist Fred Singer: "The earth continually warms and cools. The cycle is undeniable, ancient, often abrupt, and global. It is also unstoppable. Isotopes in the ice and sediment cores, ancient tree rings, and stalagmites tell us it is linked to small changes in the irradiance of the sun."[4, p.4] Atmospheric physicist Fred Singer and Dennis T. Avery, Unstoppable Global Warming

Edward Hunter (author of Brainwashing, an exposé of Soviet strategies for mind control): “The methods used to make ‘learning’ and confession palatable and workable are borrowed freely from … evangelism, psychiatry and science. The language and ideals of each of these fields were taken over and given new meanings and new interpretations in accordance with communist need. Brainwashing is a combination of fake evangelism and quack psychiatry in a setting of false science.” (1960, p.185) ........................................................

Off Subject, Loopie Lambrain has stated that “Australia must double the size of its military to counter the threat of a Chinese invasion”. Good to see someone who effectively holds the balance of power in the senate has such a firm grip on reality.

Anyone read this it is about a solar plant in the US killing birds at the rate of 1 every few minutes. green energy gone mad.

Christine Milne should be encouraged to lobby Tony Abbot to hold a referendum at the next election to give Tasmania full Independence as a separate Nation. Brownland, with Milne as President, SHY as Immigration Minister and Greg Hunt as Treasurer would be the envy of the world as a leader in renewable energy technology. Sav Australia billions in handouts to this economic wasteland.

Too right Larry. Thankfully Greg Hunt's global warming beliefs are fast making him yesterdays man. He's a clever guy and one hopes he can adapt.

Do tell BITS

Green power is for Capitalists to exploit. i.e. there is a quid in it for the average Punter ! This subsidised system is as dead as the Dodo.

Wissam Haddad, (head of al-Risalah Islamic Centre) says in Tuesday Daily Telegraph, that he is uncomfortable holding the Australian flag, as it doesn't represent him as a muslim, and that his flag is the flag of Allah. This bloke obviously never swore any allegiance to uphold Australian values when he was allowed into this Country. My question is, why is he here, and why isn't he being visited by Immigration, with a view to deportation whence he came. He can then be comfortable holding his little black flag of terrorism. Tomorrow would be a good time, and I will assist with his air fare out of my pension with pleasure. Can't believe Mr Abbott is allowing this sort of trouble maker to have residence in this land. . Time we got rid of him and his ilk.

We also have to pay for the money paid to solar panel owners and in Qld ANNA Bligh set it until 2026 and it is mandatory for all new homes to have panels. SO the money paid by AGL (up to 52c/ unit into the grid) is paid for by all recipients of electricity here, PLUS the cost of poles, wires, repairs. As well there is the problem of power travelling along the lines to houses, and back from houses to wherever it goes. There could be a huge problem in years to come, like the pink batts.

With what comes out of Labor's and the Greens mouths it should be called an Excreta Tax!

Nah!! we're onto it. Dan (not Daniel) Andrews won't get it. I received an automated political survey last night asking me who I would vote for in the next election. Am I satisfied with Abbott, would I vote for Shortarse. Anyone else in the LaTrobe electorate of Vic. receive same.

Prune Face Milne is slowly reversing her prunish appearance. She has had work done, fewer wrinkles, chooky neck gone, cheeks fuller and less railway lines, hair a different colour. Must be going to Gillard's old cosmetic surgeon.

As i have just found out :(

Pansy Jones knows all about behinds.

Greens/homosexuals endanger rodents

The best comment, we pay to subsidise the installation of wind farms and solar panels etc then pay mad prices for the power they generate, how stupid? This must be the greatest con ever!

Yeah Diddums: As a prominent member of my family once said: "Ask and ye shall receive.' I have no idea what I'd be likely to receive from Alan Jones.
