Former cosmopolitan elite-in-chief, Adrian Blundell-Wignall (a former head of the OECD) let the mask slip earlier this month when he said:
‘Here is the simple truth. It doesn’t matter where the fossil is burned. The carbon dioxide pumped into the atmosphere has exactly the same effect on climate change, regardless of whether it is burned here or abroad.’
Putting aside the flawed climate science, Blundell-Wignall’s admission is significant. China’s annual emissions are around thirty times higher than Australia’s. It is futile (again, putting the climate science to one side) for Australia to cut its emissions and to end coal when China continues to build more coal stations and increase its emissions.
But rather than draw the obvious conclusion that Australia should shelve its emissions reduction policies such as Net Zero, Blundell-Wignall argues what we actually need is a carbon tax, because ‘with a carbon tax, other countries would buy less of our coal’.
It’s a touch ironic that just weeks after these comments, the federal government announced it would be sending 70,000 tonnes of coal to Ukraine to support their military and defence efforts against the Kremlin. It seems Tony Abbott was right after all when he said in 2014 at the opening of the Caval Ridge coal mine in central Queensland that ‘coal is good for humanity’, and that ‘coal is vital for the future energy needs of the world, so let’s have no demonisation of coal’.
Still, Blundell-Wignall is at least honest, which is more than can be said of the federal government.
Having won a landslide victory in 2013 on the promise to ‘axe the tax’, and on the back of the victory at the 2019 ‘climate election’, Scott Morrison has spent the better part of three years shifting his focus from the workers of Gladstone to the bureaucrats of Glasgow.
Just before the COP 26 Glasgow climate conference held in October last year, Morrison announced the Coalition would adopt Labor’s policy of Net Zero emissions by 2050. And just after the conference, the government released modelling asserting such a commitment would make us all $2,000 richer by the year 2050.
Promises of green hydrogen, ‘choices not mandates’, and exciting new technologies yet to be discovered – all without costing a single job – makes for a great marketing slogan. But here’s the rub. Australians are still unpersuaded.
The disconnect between the political class and mainstream Australians has even been publicly acknowledged by the member for Longman, Terry Young.
In February, Young was reported as telling a Liberal Party room meeting that he voted in favour of Net Zero even though the people of Longman didn’t back it.
It’s likely more than a few more MPs would have followed Young in ignoring their constituents’ preferences if a recent survey by the Institute of Public Affairs is anything to go by.
Over 1,000 Australians were asked a series of questions by marketing firm Dynata between March 4-6 about energy security, Net Zero emissions, and national defence. Some 72 per cent of respondents said they believed reliability or affordability should be the focus of energy policy, and only 28 per cent said meeting Net Zero emissions by 2050 should be the focus.
What is significant about this finding is how far attitudes toward cutting emissions have shifted over the past year. A similar survey undertaken by the Lowy Institute in April 2021, before Scott Morrison committed Australia to Net Zero, found 55 per cent of Australians believed reducing carbon emissions should be a priority of the federal government, while 44 per cent believed reducing household bills (affordability) and reducing the risk of blackouts (reliability) should be a priority (and 1 per cent weren’t sure).
The plummet to those supporting cutting emissions as a priority of energy policy has no doubt been driven by the growing geopolitical uncertainty.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has exposed the dependency of Western European nations, such as Germany, on foreign energy supply and the extent to which this can be used as diplomatic and military leverage. It has also highlighted our own vulnerabilities.
Australia’s entire strategic oil reserve is only enough for 1.5 days of domestic consumption, and we lack the capacity to bulk store fuel resources locally. At the turn of the century, Australia had eight operational oil refineries, enough to almost meet our domestic consumption of fuel, however only two remain today.
Worst still, on Scott Morrison’s watch, both BP and ExxonMobil announced they would be closing their respective refineries in Kwinana, Western Australia, and Altona, Victoria.
Further, policies such as Net Zero – by shifting our energy supply basis from coal to solar, wind, and batteries – are making us more reliant on foreign powers.
China, for example, controls approximately 80 per cent of the global supply of rare earths and metals which are used to produce solar panels, wind turbines, and batteries. They are also used critical defence manufactures such as weapons and fighter jets.
Our increasing dependency on foreign energy supplies is completely unnecessary and can only be described as an act of self-sabotage. Australia has over 2,000 years’ worth of coal deposits, around one-third of the world’s known uranium deposits, and an abundance of onshore and offshore oil and gas. Yet government intervention, primarily through emissions mandates, red tape, and outright bans, means these vital resources – which are mission-critical to our national security – stay in the ground underneath our feet.
The tension between pursuing Net Zero and securing our national defence is becoming more apparent to policymakers and to the average person.
The same survey undertaken by the IPA found that 61 per cent of Australians agree the federal government should be more focused on national defence rather than meeting Australia’s Net Zero emissions by 2050 target, while only 39 per cent disagree.
As our region becomes more uncertain by the day, it’s well time that Morrison ditched Net Zero so that Australia can avoid becoming the Germany of the Asia-Pacific.
The Commonwealth Constitution of Australia has rarely been taught in Australian schools. Most adults are oblivious to its contents and meaning.
Consider why a government would want to change our Constitution by referendum to effect a racial division among Australians to enshrine a second voice for a small minority group?
More than 19,000 cars were stolen in Queensland last year with Brisbane topping the score across the nation with 7000 disappearing.
Cairns recorded 1289 stolen cars at the end of December, a record for the far northern city.
The most common cars stolen were Toyotas, specifically Landcruisers, HiLuxs and Corollas, followed by Holden Commodores and Ford Rangers according to the RACQ.
These were the top selling makes and models which are impossible to start without the right key. It follows on that thieves have been able to break into homes and find the keys which is worrying for homeowners who probably were asleep when the thefts occurred.
In Cairns the majority of thieves are usually aged 12 to 16 who have no fear of the police or courts. They often post the photos of stolen cars on social media including themselves sitting on the bonnet for a trophy shot.
Many of these juveniles are Aboriginal who should be at home late at night and going to school the next day.
There is a great deal of anecdotal evidence claiming the kiddie car thieves are part of an organised group which deploys them into neighborhoods because the courts are unable to keep them locked up when caught and there are minor consequences.
Recently two white 17 year old males caused more than two million dollars damage to earthmoving machinery in south Cairns but were soon caught because they too posted their expensive exploits on social media.
Police asked the duo why they vandalised the machinery to which they replied: “because we can…”
These kids, black and white have not ever been taught respect for others or their property because the Labor Party’s juvenile justice laws have been debased to the point of irrelevance and indigenous education curricula has conditioned students that white man is a trespasser.
There are no rehabilitation or remote sentencing programs of any value to suit these recalcitrant kids and doubling jail time for property offences is laughable.
Kids are taught humanistic values where it is OK to do as you like with no possibility of retribution, and that white man stole your land so go get ‘em.
Could the same malady be affecting Alice Springs?

The Daintree rainforest In Far North Queensland is Dying while the universities study the healthy Great Barrier Reef for millions in government funding.
Driving the Bloomfield road from Wujal Wujal to Cape Tribulation all you can see are dead trees covered in weed vine that climbs everything until it suffocates the tree from sunlight, strangles and kills it.
You would think with all the tour buses with university educated tour operators with eco-tours all over their brochures may have noticed the dead trees covered in vines! Or maybe the government paid Aboriginal Ranges who are supposed to be invaluable in conservation!
Or Queensland government Parks and Wildlife Rangers!
Maybe the Universities who have received millions from the government who supposedly studied land run-off to the great barrier reef!
When will Australians get value for money when it comes to politicians, government departments and education?
(Natural News) Humans are to become walking parasites, and the globalists want everyone consuming crickets because they contain the perfect “armor” that parasites and pathogens use to infect humans and animals and spread disease inside them. Pathogens cause all kinds of diseases in animals and humans and use chitin (and chitinases), from the exoskeleton of crickets, as coats to protect them from the harsh conditions inside the host body they invade.
This helps the infection manifest and exploit the host, thus being easily transmitted from one vertebrate to another via “insect vectors,” as described in research published in the National Library of Medicine by the National Institutes of Health.
Internal parasites infect their hosts and can cause serious health detriment, including loss of appetite, diarrhea, neurological damage, and reproductive failure. Parasite eggs hatch inside the insect and can become quite durable inside the host, especially when fed certain food.
Pathogens and (metazoan) parasites that cause diseases in humans and animals use chitin in their life cycles. Many of these parasites contain chitin coats that protect them from being destroyed by the natural defense systems inside the host. Humans who consume crickets are feeding the parasites and pathogens exactly what they need to become more resistant and resilient inside their body, by feeding them more and more chitin.
Eating crickets could be the fuel for the next “pandemic” and wipe out several million people, if not a few billion. Ivermectin is an anti-parasitic medicine that has an amazingly high percentage of success beating Covid infection at all stages. Could it be that chitin consumption will arm the parasites and virus mutations of the next pandemic in a way that ivermectin won’t work anymore? Do the globalists and their insidious scientists know this? Is chitin the kill switch? Is this new push for the populace to consume insects all part of the depopulation plan? This requires careful consideration.
Eating locusts, crickets, ants, beetles, worms, bees, wasps, caterpillars, grubs and slugs could fuel the next death wave of humans – just what the globalists want
Eating insects can cause severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis and other life-threatening consequences. Dangerous insects to consume include locusts, meal worms, cicadas, slugs, snails, silkworms, and crickets. The bible says “All flying insects that walk on all fours are to be detestable to you.” Certain (venomous) ants, beetles, wasps, spiders, caterpillars, and even butterflies can be deadly if consumed by humans. Yet, Big Pharma uses deadly venoms and venom peptides to make prescription medications, and those medications carry a list of insane side effects. It’s no wonder.
If you start eating insects regularly, because you believe this will save the earth from global warming or “climate change,” you may be putting yourself (and any children you have) directly in harm’s way, adding to the evil agenda of globalists who want to depopulate the planet. That’s why the elite 1% of the 1% are genocidal maniacs, saying everyone should stop eating meat and start munching on insects all day. Amazon is now promoting and selling crickets in many forms, for human consumption, including freeze dried and powder form.

[12.01, 16:07] Sukhanov Y. F. Qv. 83: Read it, it’s beautiful!
The text is easy, it is pleasant to read.
“The benefits of age 60 and over.”
– I would never trade my great friends, my beautiful life, my beloved family for less gray hair or a flatter stomach.
As I got older, I became friendlier and less critical of myself.
I became my friend…
I don’t blame myself for eating an extra cookie, not making my bed, or buying something stupid that I didn’t need.
I have a right to be messy and extravagant.
I have seen many dear friends leave this world too soon, before I realized the great freedom of aging…
Who will blame me if I decide to read or play on my computer until four and sleep until noon…?
Who will make me happier if I stay in bed or in front of the TV as long as I want?
I’ll dance to those wonderful hits of the ’70s and ’80s, and at the same time I’ll want to cry for lost love…
If I want to, I’ll walk down the beach in shorts too tight on my flabby body, and selflessly dive into the waves despite the judgmental looks of others…
They will get old, too.
I know I forget things sometimes, but there are some things in life that should just be forgotten!..!
I remember the important things. Sure, my heart has been broken many times over the years. But broken hearts give us strength, understanding and compassion.
A heart that has never suffered is flawless and barren and will never know the joy of being imperfect.
I have been fortunate enough to live long enough to have my gray hair and youthful laughter on my face forever.
Many never laughed, many died before their hair turned silver.
As you get older, you find it easier to be positive.
You care less about what others think of you.
I don’t doubt myself anymore.
I’ve earned the right to be wrong.

Western Australia has been infected with climate change dogma of the eastern states and intends to commit hari-kari by following the WEF and UN’s Net Zero 2050 instructions.
Those miners and every associated industry generating the state’s 2021, $230 billion economic return who voted for the ALP should ditch the Labor Party and Premier McGowan before he gets rid of them.
The Western Australia resources sector achieved record sales of $230 billion in 2021 highlighting how its economy has carried the nation through the COVID-19 pandemic.
A record 156,238 people are working in the mining sector, with an extra 15,298 jobs added in 2021
Western Australia accounted for more than half of national goods exports in 2021.
WA’s COVID-19 management has ensured the economy has stayed open and strong throughout the pandemic, says the state government.
Previous analysis by the Institute of Public Affairs found that the policy of reaching Net Zero by 2050 will cancel more than 186,000 jobs in regional Western Australia, which, according to the most recent census, accounts for over 80 per cent of the labour force in the regional parts of the state.
Additionally, analysis shows these jobs will not be replaced by jobs in renewable industries. Most jobs touted as part of renewable projects last for a limited time, primarily during the installation phase, with maintenance of the renewable projects being comparably low-skilled and low-paid to jobs in gas, coal, and mining.
Will the mining unions warn their members? It is doubtful the unions will say a word. Is it any wonder Twiggy Forrest, a WEF disciple, is pouring hundreds of millions into experimental green hydrogen energy.
Former Magistrate Heilpern told porkies that Covid fines cannot be challenged and thrown out – this one did not even start
Dean of Law at Southern Cross University, David Heilpern claims it is a waste of time challenging fines in summary jurisdiction.
In this audio of a Melbourne prosecution for ignoring a health directive, the prosecutor applied for the charges to be dismissed after hearing from the accused who challenged the authority of the court. What does the Dean of Law say about this? He has been telling porkies to News Ltd. How did he get to be Dean of Law at Southern Cross University?

You cannot vote National, please vote Democracy NZ ….
Luxon will not stop the Pfizzer take over of this country…. he will continue with it…
for those overseas, NZ’s problems are going to continue if the National party with Luxon at the helm currently gets in power, which is a likely outcome….
Labour does not stand a chance and ACT and the Greens are just offshoots to collect slightly left or right voters to come under the main 2 parties anyway …..
We have groups of lesser parties started up in opposition to the madness of the last 3 years who will change this country for the better and Democracy NZ is led by Matt King who was in the National party as an MP but left to start his own to try to take NZ back from the puppetmasters of the 2 leading parties Labour (Ardern and the WEF) and National (Luxon who is also WEF)…
