SO-CALLED “Liberal moderate” NSW Environment Minister Matt Kean is a threat to Australia’s farming and industrial sectors by reason of his support for every hare-brained green scheme under the sun and his hypocritical support for synthetic meat production.
Green Mr Kean is closely following the examples being set by the Labor-Green regimes of Victoria and South Australia, who are hellbent on destroying the energy-dense coal-fired electricity that built Australia’s modern, industrial economy. They are even targeting petrol/diesel vehicles in order to transform their states into some sort of “renewable energy” utopia complete with rainbow unicorns and ponies prancing through pristine pastures free of cow poo because traditional farming will be sidelined.
Kean frequently pops up on media with a silly grin, gleefully spouting the latest anti-economy project such as his plan to have NSW cut its emissions by 50 per cent by 2030, a plan he believes will have the “dual benefit” of protecting the environment and “growing the economy”.
Kean is also proposing a $750 million “Industry and Innovation Fund” to help the state’s heavy industries “transition across to a cleaner future” i.e. get rid of the steel, mining, forestry and other “dirty industries” and make the state even more reliant on Chinese imports.
Kean and his starry-eyed advisers fresh out of university environment faculties believe they can launch “the most ambitious electric vehicle strategy in the country” while at the same time switching the entire grid over to “renewables”, what he calls “the biggest renewable energy plan in the country’s history”.
By its nature, wind and solar electricity is much less reliable than the current mix with coal-fired backup to do all the heavy lifting on peak load periods. But the massive influx of electric vehicles (Kean wants 50% of all NSW vehicles electric by 2030) will also put unprecedented demand on the power supply system – let alone the motoring nightmares that come with these vehicles such as the kilometre-long queues seen at recharging stations in California.
Kean’s “renewable” system will rely on gas (fossil fuel) fired power stations to fill in for base load periods at night-time and overcast or low-wind periods when renewables stop working. It will also involve the use of giant batteries that are gaining notoriety for fierce fires, such as the one in Victoria at the Tesla battery site near Geelong last year, which burned for nearly four days before it could be brought under control.
Kean’s big green scheme will cost the state multiple billions in lost industry and send the price of electricity even higher than it has been with the demonization of coal and deliberate neglect of coal-fired power stations by state governments infiltrated by the environmentalist cult and their anti-carbon paranoia.
Regardless, the Kean actually believes this fruitloop plan will cut household energy costs by $130 a year and business energy costs by $430 per annum. We keep hearing of these promises about renewables creating “cheaper power”, when the opposite is the reality. As coal and gas-fired electricity supply is squeezed and prices forced up, renewables only appear “cheaper”. The real cost of renewables however, is in their unrealiability.
Back in 2017, the apparently green and woke Catherine Tanna, CEO of Energy Australia “joined the chorus of big business, unions, welfare and environmental groups calling for an end to Canberra’s blame game over renewables” and said the solution to rising power prices high prices was a national plan to “transition to the future of energy into renewables”. Catherine Tanna’s video message is no longer available and we don’t wonder why.
Tanner, coincidentally, was the chairwoman at British Gas in Australia along with senior positions in BHP Petroleum and Royal Dutch Shell around the world. She was also on the board of the Reserve Bank of Australia to March 2021 and was then appointed to Scott Morrison’s National Covid19 Commission. (What were all these corporate high fliers doing on a “commission” overseeing the Covid scam, we wonder?)
What we do know is that Tanna is one of the global “big oil” corporate elite and is likely playing a game involving the restriction and boosting of fossil fuel prices for the benefit of the big corporations she is beholden to. With Russian gas cut off from Europe by Biden and Nato’s war games, the price of natural gas has gone sky high. Victoria’s socialist left government is playing this game too by pushing to shut off gas from it’s massive gas fields for domestic use and make the state entirely electric.
Come April 2022, after five more years of attacks on coal and building of more wind and solar farms, electricity prices are spiraling upwards out of control. “The report from the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) shows wholesale electricity jumped 141 per cent to $87 per megawatt-hour (MWh) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $36 MWh at the same time last year,” Sky News reported.
“In Queensland alone record demand saw wholesale prices surge to $150 MWh for the quarter – the second highest rate the state has seen for any quarter in over 20 years. The prices are expected to flow onto consumers with the wholesale price of energy accounting for 30 to 40 per cent of a household’s power bill.”
But now the “blame game” has fully shifted to fossil fuels, with the AEMO saying coal generator outages, an increase in demand due to heatwaves and “costly fossil fuel production” were behind the latest price hikes. Is it any wonder that coal electricity outages are frequent and hurting supply when governments are actively working to shut stations down with no promises of support for investment or replacement.
Regardless of this neglect, coal-fired electricity is still the backbone of Australian electricity supply and without it the economy will simply break down. In 2017, when Catherine Tanna and others were promising their glorious new renewable energy future, coal still provided 62.7% of Australia’s electricity, according to World Energy Data.org. With gas (19.6%) and oil (2%), the fossil fuel total was 84%.
As Cairns News stories have repeatedly shown, the key to national economic well-being is energy density, as brilliantly elucidated by the Scottish academic Robert Wilson PhD. Fossil fuels happen to have very high energy density orders of magnitude higher than solar and wind, which is why they have become the backbone of all modern economies. Nuclear power is also energy-dense, which is why it plays such a big role in the Europe, Russia, China and North America.
But with Russian gas gone from Europe through the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipeline, economic warning signals are flashing for Europe with only Norwegian pipeline gas and US shipped gas available to fill the huge deficit.
Meanwhile the green Mr Kean is talking up “the transition” of farming to adopt “new technologies and practices” in line with the green virtue signalling by their corporate masters in the National Farmers Federation and Meat & Livestock Australia. “This is not about hurting our farmers, but making them more productive and profitable,” Kean spouted to ABC Radio in September, 2021.
Kean claims his big green dream is forecast to attract $32 billion in private investment over a decade in “renewable energy zones” and most of this will go to rural and regional NSW, for instance, New England, where plans are afoot to cover the landscape – no longer needed for livestock production – in solar and wind farms allegedly capable of producing (when its running) 8000mW of new electricity.
Kean breathlessly bragged to the ABC that this plan was oversubscribed four times with schemes that would produce 32000mW worth $40 billion, which apparently would be the economic saviour of the regions. No doubt the 1000s of hectares of windmills and solar panels would require a big workforce for the endless maintenance needed to keep these facilities operating. And of course Kean is particularly excited that these energy farms will “halve the state’s emissions” by that magic year 2030 – when we will all own nothing but be happy.
Kean’s green dream clearly doesn’t have the long-term future of livestock farming in its sights. Like Bill Gates and the World Economic Forum, Kean is helping push synthetic meat, such as that illegal product being made by the NSW company Vow, a name which makes one wonder just what the people behind it are thinking. A vow to create a livestock-free landscape perhaps? Or is it a totally vegan food supply? Or did they vow to make real meat so expensive, it will be only for the ruling elites?
Vow’s first factory in Alexandria, Sydney, aims to produce 30 tons of their “cultured meat” per year. And then their second factory will be churning 100 times the amount of this gunk in 2024. Kean’s “vision for farming” is shaping up, right in the middle of urban Sydney where high-density Agenda 20-30 style shoebox apartment buildings are popping up like mushrooms.
In the meantime Vow plans to sell their “cultivated chicken, beef, and pork” in Singapore before the end of the year, because Singapore is the only nation that has approved cultivated meat for sale. Other companies pushing this synthetic, mass produced sludge include the “Good Meat” company, an offshoot of Eat Just.
Upside Foods in California (of course) has opened its EPIC factory, capable of producing 400,000 pounds of cultivated protein sludge annually. “Cultivated meat” is grown in labs via media fed to cells, replacing the need to raise and slaughter animals. And that no doubt sends a warm and fuzzy virtue signal to warm the hearts of Kean and his legions of inner-Sydney Green left climate cultists.
Off topic for NSW and its political farce but an experience that is not too far away.
“WE ARE NEAR TOTAL BREAKDOWN”
A Sri Lankan Reality – or a message of what is in store for all of us. From Amnesty Int.
“As of June 2022, an estimated 11% of households reported their income had stopped and 62% of households said their income reduced; and as of July, food inflation reached 90.9% on a yearly basis.
For example, in June 2022, a paediatric surgeon said she had seen shortages in intravenous potassium chloride, intravenous antibiotics, and insulin, and shortages in equipment (intravenous lines, canulae, syringes) in paediatric sizes. “We even had a shortage of gauze”, she said. “We didn’t have catheters and endotracheal tubes in smaller sizes, so we were asked to re-use them”.
In other instances, people were asked to purchase medicines or equipment from private pharmacies, because government hospitals did not have stocks. “But not everyone could afford it. Those who couldn’t, just went home and came back worse”, a doctor said.
Fuel shortages have made transport either unavailable or extremely expensive, and made it difficult, if not impossible, for people to physically access healthcare services.
The steep increases in the price of food, combined with reductions in household income and loss of livelihood, mean that people are either unable to afford sufficient and nutritious food, or must spend a much larger proportion of their income on food-related expenses, often at the cost of other essential services like healthcare, housing and education. Over 6.2 million people (28% of the population) are estimated to be moderately acute food insecure, 66,000 people are estimated to be severely acute food insecure, and 8.7 million people (39.1% of the population) are not consuming an adequate diet.
In June 2022, doctors at the Lady Ridgeway Hospital for Children (LRH) said 20% of children admitted had malnutrition.
As the economic crisis has intensified and the lack of essential items and services has become more acute, people in Sri Lanka have engaged in protests calling for the government to take responsibility for the economic crisis. The government has responded to the largely peaceful protests with excessive use of force among other human rights violations. They have also implemented emergency laws giving sweeping powers to the police and armed forces in an effort to curb the protests.”

Yes Gus, all planned…
Just went on “Vow” website firstly classifies itself as a biological company as opposed to what we want to see “Primary Producer”. Secondly cartoon descriptions of podgy stodgy products grown in test tube type environment with a 6 week time frame to cultivate. And thirdly propped up only because of Government and private equity grants and injections. How long would a company like this last in a real world environment? 0 days. Show me their balance sheet in 2 to 3 years time.
True story for you all. I am currently in Manly NSW. On Thursday was at Waringah mall. As we were exiting incoming was Mr Barilaro, all alone. Appeared squeamish. An older man was sitting near exit (guessing perhaps 70). I said to him “he looks a little awkward”. Return “so he should”. And further “their days are numbered”. I said “yes he pretty game”. Older guy says “they got the public conned”. Go to your local MP they have no protection, fools they are. Pawns, they already scared.

Yuk. They are utterly insane.
Please go ahead and eat your own poison.
Wonder if fools that create this garbage started out as test subjects for the jabs.
If the ‘elite’ are storing heirloom seeds under guard then they may have a level of stupidity which is highly possible.
Seeds have a shelf life.
They only survive one or two years then become unviable.
Aka, they fail to grow anything.
So my message to anyone thinking of growing their own food would be to have some heirloom seeds, plant them, learn how to collect them and save them for the following year.
That will be the only way to perpetuate a supply.
Learn how to do it properly.
It’s one of the most serious things you can do right now.
For years seed manufacturers have been providing hybrid seeds and seedlings that will not reproduce.
People have been asleep to not see that.
If you buy a hybrid seedling, it’s seeds may be of no use to you if you try to collect them and if you have a high failure rate, that could be why.
My only other message would be to learn what ‘weeds’ are not so harmful to consume after all.
Like the dandelion you poison in your lawn…and others.
Is it just poison and bad because ‘they’ said so?
But that is up to you to find out, and quickly.
Or you too can be left with eating those ‘soylent green’ crackers because you don’t know what else to do.
One other thing, Homesteading on youTube is slowly being weaned off.
I wonder why.
You will own nothing, and be stupid.
not a surprise as an older person the movie SOYLENT GREEN starring Charlton Heston and Edward G Robinson covered it in the 70s worth a look

That photoshoot reminds me of the photo opportunity visit to Toowoomba when the then Premier thought that drinking poo water was a great idea even taking a ‘pretend’ sip of it and saying how good it tasted.
Thankfully that idea was flushed out as quickly as it came.
It’s fine to eat lab grown pretend meat if you want to.
It’s also fine to eat battery chicken eggs.
Or fake ice-cream.
Just keep it to yourself.
If people don’t support these numbskull ideas, eventually they fail.

These corrupt pollies are not incompetent, they are willfully EVIL and are perfectly aware that healthy nutrition comes from good husbandry and horticulture, meat from well reared animals is the most efficient means for good health along with non-GMO veges and fruit. Unfortunately all the good seeds are kept under 24/7 armed guard in Norway paid for by Bill Gates.
The bent pollies are only stupid in thinking the elite have a big table with their places assigned. Too bad for them they will be the first of the post-covid survivors to be slaughtered and used for fertilizer or uploaded to the cloud to enjoy eternity as a cartoon character.
Sorry if I have posted twice, but first post seems to have disappeared from my end at least.

When are folks going to realize these pollies aren’t incompetent,they are willfully EVIL and know full well what they are doing.They know properly raised meat from cows and sheep and pigs and poultry and non-GMO vegies is the most efficient and beneficial nutritional intake, but they want it reserved for them the WEF or the FEW, that’s why they are storing heirloom seeds under 24/7 armed guards in Norway’s northern Islands paid for by Billy shut that fucking Gate.
Their stupidity is thinking the elites have a huge table with their seat reservations assigned; idiots they will be the first ones of the post covid survivors to be eliminated, or perhaps they think they will be uploaded to the cloud, nuh,no rapture for them, just an eternal existence as a computer virus, enjoy.
