Drastic changes to the Lake Eyre Basin Management Plan, proposed by the Queensland Labor Government under new “Pristine Rivers” legislation, could crucify future development in north and western Queensland, Katter’s Australian Party MPs have warned.
Environment Minister Leanne Enoch announced a review into the basin’s management plan just before Christmas, saying the “proposed framework will increase protections for streams and floodplains in the Queensland section of the Lake Eyre Basin”.
Feedback is required by late January, but the public is not allowed to participate in this process.
KAP State Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter said the secret proposal, the details of which have so far only been shared with invited stakeholders, could lock up almost of third of Queensland and make much of the state’s prime mining and agricultural land untouchable.
He said the misguided move, aimed at shoring up Labor’s green credentials in Brisbane ahead of the 2020 State Election, would also rip away all economic opportunities open to a vast portion or rural and remote Queensland.
“The Labor Government has time and time again smashed regional, rural and remote Queensland with legislation that suits them in Brisbane but rips opportunity and autonomy away from us,” Mr Katter said.
“So far this term they have given us the reef regulations and the tree-clearing laws, all because of the need to keep feeding the green monster in Brisbane.
“Now this ‘Pristine Rivers’ proposal is their third attack, and it’s being launched ahead of the election campaign.
“All the KAP can say on behalf of these northern and western areas is that we are sick of being the sacrificial lambs to win Green votes in Brisbane.
“There is nothing to stop the State Government right now adjudicating on any development, mining or otherwise, that is inappropriate in an area or detrimental to the environment.
“This is regulation for regulation sake, and like the tree-clearing laws it will be politically-based and centred around flimsy science.”
Mr Katter said it was ludicrous to think that the Labor Government, which is presiding over a huge deficit and high unemployment rates, would put a blanket ban on development across large section of the state.
“Quite frankly, Queenslanders need a new deal for the regions because the current state of affairs is simply not good enough,” he said.
“If they want a fight on this, I will say bring it on because the KAP will give them one.”
KAP Member for Hinchinbrook Nick Dametto said, if the proposed changes were to go ahead, Queensland could never be drought-proofed.
“We have heard a lot of talk over the last few months from the major parties about their plans to ‘drought-proof’ Queensland,” he said.
“If this ‘Pristine Rivers’ legislation gets up, you can kiss that goodbye.
“You can kiss goodbye: any style of the Bradfield Scheme ever taking off, any chance of drought-proofing Queensland and any chance of building an agricultural sector on the other side of the Great Dividing Range which would help western Queensland prosper.”
The KAP said it believes the current review and the “Pristine Rivers” proposal was a broad re-hash of the previous, controversial Wild Rivers legislation that was first introduced by Premier Peter Beattie in 2005.
The party has called on Premier Palaszczuk to make the Lake Eyre Basin Management Plan proposal available to the public, and to extend the timeframe allowed for consultation.
Letter to the Editor
I am sending this out far and wide by email and Facebook (see 2 videos below)
I am 79 years old. I have lived through drought and I have lived through bush fires, but NEVER have I seen cars and metal melt and such devastation. Everybody with a brain knows that this is not normal.
You can choose to ignore this, or choose to pass it on, but ultimately the truth will be known.
This is an attack by the New World Order to reduce population and to bring us to our knees, to bring famine and to control every aspect of our lives, including the poisoning of humanity by vaccines.
They do not care who or what they kill.These “people” are either possessed by the devil, or from another planet. There is no way a normal human being would do this.
Choose to speak out, fight against this, or sit back and do nothing and become a slave.
Because of censorship, these videos will probably soon be removed, as being fake.

Lachlan and Rupert Murdoch in damage control:
It is of interest that just on this site alone over 8 years there have been more than a quarter of a million views of our stories about this insidious UN Agreement which has been rigidly adhered to by Queensland and all other state governments since 1992.
Brain-dead News Ltd reporters are claiming a Facebook site shared an Agenda 21 story 30 times. Our articles do this almost on a daily basis. Cairnsnews has a much greater readership than the News Ltd hallmark social rag the Cairns Post and most of its other regional dailies.

Is the directed energy weapon used to make way for an infrastructure of “smart cities” in Australia?
More than 1000 homes destroyed by wildfire

“Our fiber lasers operate with an efficiency that generates less heat and exists in a smaller housing allowing easier integration into various defense platforms. Our ALADIN laser has been operating in the field for two years without the need for realignment, proving both the deadliness and the reliability of our solutions. ”
– Dr. Rob Afzal, Senior Researcher, Sensors and Laser Systems
A theoretical, and entirely legitimate, question arises when we seek to perceive the truth among the scraps of information that we receive every day from the traditional media: is the directed energy weapon secretly used to make room for “smart cities” infrastructure in Australia? A directed energy weapon emits energy in a desired direction without the need for a projectile. It transfers energy to a target for the desired effect. The desired effects on humans may or may not be lethal.
In addition to its use on people or as a potential missile defense, directed energy technology has also been shown to stop or disable moving cars, drones, jet skis and electronic devices such as cell phones. An electrolaser allows (thanks to the laser) that the blooming occurs (forming a channel / path of ionized air of conductor), then sends a powerful electric current through the channel / path of plasma formed in the direction of the target, much like lightning. It works like a giant version of the Taser or a high-energy electric pulse pistol over a long distance.
“Now is the time to send directed energy weapons to the battlefield. The Army recognizes the need for directed energy lasers as part of its modernization plan. It is no longer a research or demonstration effort. It is a strategic combat capability, and we are on track to get it into the hands of the soldiers. ”
– Lieutenant-General L. Neil Thurgood, Director of “Hypersonics, Directed Energy, Space and Rapid Acquisition”
On December 11, 2019, Julie Kern wrote on the Futura-Sciences site: “The fires in Australia do not seem to be ending. It has been almost five months since the beginning of August that the country of kangaroos burns everywhere. The regions of New South Wales and Queensland are the most affected. More than three million hectares have been devastated by the flames in these two regions. Currently, 87 homes are still active covering a perimeter of more than ten kilometers. They are essentially bush fires which progress quickly and produce a lot of smoke which suffocates cities like Sydney. The fires also damaged precious ecosystems that house endangered animals, and more than 684 homes were consumed by the flames. Despite the emergency, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has not declared a climate emergency in his country. ”
On December 22, 2019, the Sky News reported the Prime Minister’s words that there were “many other factors” than the climate change responsible for the fires that killed at least nine people.
“There is no argument, in my opinion, or from the point of view of the government, and any government in the country, about the links between the broader issues of global climate change and weather events around the world – but I I’m sure people would also recognize that direct connection to a single fire is not a credible suggestion. ”
The “official” news continues to say that the fires were caused by high heat and drought due to climate change and high winds. According to these sources, the earth has become so hot that the trees and grass have caught fire or is so dry that fires have spread over the grass and passed from one house to another even if the grass and brush between the burned houses was still green. For too hot soil, it should be at least 172 degrees C. (341.6 F.) as this is the temperature at which the hay burns (which is drier than the grass) and between 190 and 260 degrees Celsius (374 to 500 degrees F) for wood depending on the type and condition of it. In addition, warmer weather should bring more rain as more water is drawn from the ocean, creating clouds of rain. In the Contracts for Weather Control document, you can read at the bottom of page 13 how HAARP disperses storms and can create winds up to 70 mph.
The order of the day is to convince people that global warming is real in order to gain their acceptance to lose their rights and to shape their lifestyles into a single dictatorial world government.
Although the fire map is not evidence of the use of directed energy weapons, it is strange that almost the entire continent burns at the same time, around the same time that California burns. Australia has had bush fires before, but not nearly as much and at the same time. Mainstream media continues to blame climate change for the hot, dry conditions. As noted above, it must be at least 374 to 500 degrees F for the wood to start burning. (Chemtrail Planet)

Presumably, directed energy weapons appear to be used in California and Australia.
Planning for 5G “smart cities” in Australia
High view to Hyde Park, Sydney at night Driven by cutting-edge technology and infrastructure, smart cities have progressed, embraced a future concept and are now becoming a reality, with the Australian government initiating a new plan to “transform cities and regional sites ”. The “smart city plan” will include new mechanisms to monitor and control society through technology, including intelligent management of infrastructure functions, ground and air sensors, surveillance with facial recognition, “Sustainable projects” and more.
Many systems are already there, and over the next decade, regions of the country are expected to interconnect to create a national 5G smart grid controlled by advanced biometric technologies. By 2021, the number of devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to double, and one major development that is already happening around the world to respond to this increase is the “smart city revolution”.
Using information and communication technologies, a “smart city” aims to provide personalized and intelligent services to residents, businesses and, most importantly, authorities. A smart city is officially defined by international standards as:
“Efficient integration of physical, digital and human systems into the built environment to provide a sustainable, prosperous and inclusive future for its citizens. “(ISO PAS 180, 2014).
A smart city uses data from IoT devices and sensors, widely used by artificial intelligence systems, to improve the city’s service experience, using “smart management” of resources to mitigate problems such as congestion, crime and pollution. Common themes found in smart city designs include: CCTV cameras with facial recognition capabilities, “smart lights” and LED sensors, pedestrian trackers, city movement monitoring systems and “ environmental analyzes ”to understand air quality such as dust, pollution and temperature.
The technology to create this type of smart city is already available and used around the world, including bins that compost, street lights that darken when not needed and light up when pedestrians pass, moment sensors and apps advising live data and much more.
Johnson CO2 Generator
Carbon dioxide is one of the essential ingredients in green plant growth, and is a primary environmental factor in greenhouses. CO2 enrichment at 2, 3 or 4 times natural concentration will cause plants to grow faster and improve plant quality and help save the planet.
Modern growers are becoming increasingly aware of the value of CO2. Particularly now that most greenhouses are purposely shutting out CO2 to conserve energy.
The Johnson CO2 Generator automatically provides the carbon dioxide to meet maximum growing potentials – and operates for only pennies a day. The Johnson Generator can easily be installed in any greenhouse. No expensive ductwork is necessary and CO2 is diffused evenly without supplemental fans.
Join with modern growers everywhere – use Johnson CO2 Generators – the low cost way to produce CO2 – the nutrient of the new millennium.
Why you get more rapid and efficient growth and better plant quality with Johnson CO2.
Plants must absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) in combination with water, soil nutrients and sunlight to produce the sugars vital for growth. A shortage of any of these requirements will retard the growing process. Normally there are approximately 300 parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere; when this level is increased to over 1 ,000 ppm, results are higher production and better plant quality. The Johnson Generator provides up to 1,500 ppm per unit in an average 24′ x 200′ greenhouse or an equivalent 50,000 cu. ft. volume based on one air change per hour.
Nighttime levels in a greenhouse range from 400 to 500 ppm due to plant respiration. Shortly after sunrise this level will drop to normal atmosphere (300 ppm) due to the plant using the early light to start photosynthesis. After 3 to 4 hours of early morning sunlight the CO2 level can drop to around l00 to 150 ppm, then growth is practically stopped. Supplemental CO2 added during this period can substantially increase your plant and flower production. By adding CO2, during winter months when greenhouse ventilators are closed and when low CO2 concentration becomes a limiting factor in growth, users are obtaining yield and bloom quality which is normally associated with spring and summer.
CO2 More Important Than Ever
The Johnson CO2 Generator is more important than ever because greenhouse growers, trying to conserve energy, are shutting out CO2. Rising fuel costs have forced many growers to use doubled-layered glass, etc., to conserve energy – as a result much less CO2 is entering the greenhouse.
How to use the Johnson CO2 Generator
When there is sunlight and the vents are closed, CO2 should be added continuously to your greenhouse. If the vents are opened because of heat build up the generator should continue to operate for about 2 hours and then be shut off. Approximately 1 Lb. of CO2 per hour per 1,000 sq. ft. yields 1,000 ppm’s of CO2. A 4,000 sq. ft. house requires at least 4 Lbs. of CO2 per hour. If CO21evel drops off from 1,000 ppm’s to 500 ppm’s on a clear sunny day, you can easily adjust to a higher burning rate to make up for the more rapid absorption of CO2 by plants. Most growers use their Johnson Generator daily in winter from approximately 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
NSW fire bill expected to top $1billion
Comment from a reader who was burnt out at the end of this story
More than 476 homes across NSW have been lost to wildfire, and at least four landowners burnt to death leaving the gate open for a massive class action against the State of NSW for negligence at common law.
By adhering to the United Nations Agenda 21 environmental policy since 1992, when the state signed on, NSW has experienced massive losses to bush fires.
At least four innocent NSW landowners have been burnt to death by uncontrollable bush fires many of which emanated from national parks or other state controlled land.
Their policies under ‘sustainable development’ which are actually designed to hinder any development as a part of the UN depopulation program, has caused untold grief and suffering to nearly 100,000 rural and rural residential dwellers.
Cut down a tree on your rural residential estate and find out how effective these UN laws can be.
The fire bill to date is estimated to be more than $250 million to replace homes, without adding any other infrastructure losses.
The Insurance Council of Australia should begin a class action against the state government, for that matter against all state governments where there have been deaths and property losses due to bush fires. Insurers have estimated a damage bill of over $1billion in NSW.
Furthermore as the states now claim ownership of rainwater after it falls onto your land, they should be sued for flood damages as well.
Typically the NSW Government has its priorities all wrong handing out tens of millions to Muslim schools and other Islamic interests yet they have allowed only $220, 000 to replace rural fencing destroyed by their dangerous policies.
A $220,000 package will go to BlazeAid, the volunteer organisation that helps rural families rebuild buildings and fences.
The NSW Government said $100,000 of that would be used to directly purchase fencing materials and tools, and $120,000 would go towards local councils to help BlazeAid with its work.
A typical cattle fence of four barbed wires and steel posts costs nearly $4000 per klm in material alone plus the cost of clearing old lines and erection.
Sheep and goat fencing is much more expensive. Based on the cost of materials only a handful of farms will get any fences replaced.
Rural fire insurance premiums are expected to go through the roof leaving many landowners unable to insure against bush fires.
Why do New South Welshmen put up with such mediocre, mendacious governments?
Comment from a reader who was burnt out in Yeppoon, Central Queensland. It seems the Deep State is operating across Australia in a similar manner to the starting of the intense California fires which we have published in the past:
“We were burnt out in Yeppoon. Fortunately we were insured, others not so lucky, House saved but total devastation of bush land and wildlife. Anything above ground melted. Tyre’s, burnt by leaf litter, what wrong with this picture? Aluminum from mags and cars blocks flowing like that of a furnace, yet trees still standing near them. This is not normal… Going to test water in rain water tanks for aluminum and barium, have been noticing white residue on taps of recent and the clandestine night spraying of an unknown agent several months back when I witnessed what looked like a star appearing from behind a cloud and when revealing my observation to another it was revealed that they too had seen this unusual event, however they viewed it from another angle and it appeared to be a flying object pumping some form of cloud and the light that I saw as a star was actually a spot light viewing the application of the cloud of whatever! The second independent observation of the event was witnessed by several people however this time it was followed by a helicopter.
We need to wake up and look up…”

While Queensland burns, the Labor Minister for Fire and Emergency Services, Comrade Craig Crawford is nowhere to be seen. What has happened to the Minister?
The Premier, Comrade Annastacia Palaszczuk has been standing in for the Minister at media conferences issuing dire warnings for landowners to desert their properties, leaving homes to burn in the face of wildfires fuelled by Labor’s decades-long policies of no graders, dozers, firebreaks or fuel reduction burning in national parks and state-owned land.
Minister Craig Crawford’s office has refused to answer a query from Cairns News if he could confirm or deny he is undergoing alcohol rehabilitation somewhere in a facility unknown.

Following the United Nations agreement Agenda 21, which was eagerly signed in 1992 by then Labor Attorney General Rod Welford, the ALP has, like good Fabians, stealthily enacted these draconian UN environmental policies ever since.
Now the pigeons have come home to roost. Fires have destroyed 17 homes and 67 have been damaged. And this tally is only for 2019. Remember the devastating wildfires north of Bundaberg last year?
These homeowners, albeit they chose to live in fire prone areas among the eucalyptus trees, should have a legitimate claim against the state government.
There has been almost no hazard reduction burning in state-owned land for decades-machinery is banned-no firebreaks and bugger the poor neighbours.
The build-up of detritus on the forest floor is up to half a metre in national parks. This happened after cattle grazing was removed and properties locked up. Not so in most forestry controlled old growth and plantation areas. The Forestry department, with what is left of the old brigade, religiously burn their areas of responsibility and stock grazing is allowed in some areas.
Chop down a tree on freehold land and the dreaded tree police will pounce and drag you off to a Queensland court, mostly filled with a Labor judiciary.
How will the stormtrooper tree police know you cut down a tree to save a house? They have been watching your every move by satellite and drones. The DNR know immediately if you have acted in self-defence against wildfire.
The numerous good officers of the overpopulated Queensland Fire and Emergency Services, at media conferences have never mentioned the lack of machinery or firebreaks and excessive forest floor fuel loads might be the predisposing cause of private property losses.
Resplendent in their UN designed black uniforms, with collar badges resembling a Gestapo SS symbol, these urbanites prattle on about ‘climate change’ or global warming starting fires and every other bit of nonsense imaginable.
It is far past the time to drain the Queensland swamp of the burgeoning bureaucracy costing an extra one billion dollars a year to tell voters bullshit.
If you want to live among the trees then expect the worst
by Robert J Lee in Sydney
A succession of Green/ALP state governments in Queensland, NSW and Victoria has ensured the worst bush fires ever seen since the first settlement in 1788.
Blackfellas would not have allowed such high concentrations of forest detritus or would they have allowed open plains and sparsely timbered country to carry excess bodies of natural grasses.
Smart blackfellas burnt grasslands and forest whenever it would carry a fire.
If they didn’t they would have starved. Quite simple.
But the generational, socialist UN policies driving the major parties have allowed our once pristine rural land to become a tinder box due to lack of fuel reduction burning over decades.
In NSW more than 150 homes have been razed, nearly 900,000 hectares (2,250 million acres) have been devastated by wildfire and three people burnt to death because of Greens/ALP/LNP environmental nonsense.
Landowners under NSW and Queensland policies will end up in jail if they cut down a tree. There is no more problem with this stupidity now – there are no trees left.
NSW Liberal Premier Gladys Berejiklian has declared a state of emergency, describing the crisis as “some of the most devastating bushfires we have ever seen”.
The NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) confirmed the extent of the damage to date, ahead of a warning about “catastrophic” conditions facing Greater Sydney and the Greater Hunter areas on Tuesday.
And the nonsense still continues in the face of a declared fire emergency; no graders or bulldozers to build fire breaks can be seen at most of these fires. Queensland is no different.
Instead the urban methods of water-bombing with aircraft is next to useless, but puts a lot of money into a few hands.
The NSW fire bill is expected to exceed $1 billion. Insurance companies are hiding under rocks. Great management by state governments!
Then came the UN Agenda 21 (which has morphed into Agenda 30) in 1992 which then Queensland ALP Attorney General, Rod Welford, an avowed socialist among other things, couldn’t wait to sign. On whose authority did he sign such a terrible agreement?
The we have the outgoing Queensland ALP Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Deputy Premier Comrade Jackie Trad promising to sack 11,000 rural fire service volunteers if they don’t apply for a working with children blue card or telephone some ‘official’ from a raging fire ground for permission if they want to back burn.
Today Comrade Premier Palaszczuk issued a state of emergency forbidding any open fires, welding, grinding or acetylene cutting, warning landowners they will commandeer whatever equipment or water needed to fight a fire.
Maybe the desk-jockey morons of the ALP government have discovered they will need machinery to build fire breaks?
Far too little far too late. Get rid of these Trotskyites and replace them with One Nation, Katter and other independents at the next election.
Then form a new state of North Queensland and we can leave the Labor communists and their supporters to wallow in the denuded dustbowl of South East Queensland which no dams and no hazard reduction burning policies has created.
Largely useless eyesores, these towers have a limited lifespan and what happens after they expire? As we have said fo years: “the only wilderness left in Australia is between a greenie’s ears”
What is the carbon footprint of a wind turbine with 45 tons of rebar & 481m3 of concrete?
Its carbon footprint is massive – at 241.85 tons of CO2.
Here’s the breakdown of the CO2 numbers.
To create a 1 tonne (1,000 Kg) of pig iron, you start with 1.8 tonne (800 Kg) of iron ore, 900 Kg of coking coal 450 Kg of limestone. The blast furnace consumes 4,500 Kg of air. The temperature at the core of the blast furnace reaches nearly 1,600 degrees C (about 3,000 degrees F).
The pig iron is then transferred to the basic oxygen furnace to make steel.
1,350 Kg of CO2 is emitted per 1,000 Kg pig iron produced.
70% of steel is made from Coal: A 1 MW of wind turbine capacity requires 220 tonnes of coal.
A further 1,460 Kg CO2 is emitted per 1,000 Kg of Steel produced so all up 2,810 Kg CO2 is emitted.
45 tons of rebar (steel) are required so that equals 126.45 tons of CO2 are emitted.
To create a 1 tonne (1,000 Kg) of Portland cement, calcium carbonate (60%), silicon (20%), aluminium (10%), iron (10%) and very small amounts of other ingredients are heated in a large kiln to over 1,500 degrees C to convert the raw materials into clinker. The clinker is then interground with other ingredients to produce the final cement product. When cement is mixed with water, sand and gravel forms the rock-like mass know as concrete.
An average of 927 Kg of CO2 is emitted per 1 tonne (1,000 Kg of Portland cement. On average, concrete has 10% cement, with the balance being gravel (41%), sand (25%), water (18%) and air (6%). One cubic metre of concrete weighs approx. 2.4 tonne (2,400 Kg) so approx. 240 Kg of CO2 is emitted for every cubic metre.
481m3 of concrete are required so that equals 115.4 tons of CO2 are emitted.
Not included are the emissions of the mining of the raw materials or the transportation of the fabricated materials to the turbine site. So the emission calculation above would be on the low end.
Extra stats about wind turbines you may not know about:
The average towering wind turbine being installed around beautiful Australia right now is over 80 metres in height (nearly the same height as the pylons on the Sydney Harbour Bridge). The rotor assembly for one turbine – that’s the blades and hub – weighs over 22 tonnes and the nacelle, which contains the generator components, weighs over 52 tonnes
This stands on a concrete base constructed from 45 tonnes of reinforcing rebar which also contains over 481 cubic metres of concrete (that’s over 481,000 litres of concrete – about 20% of the volume of an Olympic swimming pool).
Each turbine blade is made of glass fibre reinforced plastics, (GRP), i.e. glass fibre reinforced polyester or epoxy and on average each turbine blade weighs around 7 tonnes Kg each.
Each turbine has three blades so there’s 21 tonnes Kgs of GRP and each blade can be as long as 50 metres.
A typical wind farm of 20 turbines can extend over 101 hectares of land (1.01 Km2).
Each and every wind turbine has a magnet made of a metal called neodymium. There are .5 tonnes of it in each one that have just gone up around Australia.
The mining and refining of neodymium is dirty and toxic – involving repeated boiling in acid, with radioactive thorium as a waste product – that only one country does it – China.
All this for an intermittent highly unreliable energy source of electrickery
Now, considered the manufacture of the thousands of pylons and tens of thousands of kilometres of transmission wire needed to get the power to the grid. And what about the land space needed to house thousands of these bird chomping death machines?
Renewables like wind turbines will incur far more carbon dioxide emissions in their manufacture and installation than what their operational life will ever save.
Doesn’t the false pollution “cure” of using wind turbines sound worse than the problem? A bit like amputating your leg to “cure” your in-growing toe nail?
Germany’s Renewable Energy Fail: German CO2 Emissions 10 Times Higher than Nuclear- France
Germany has added 30,000 wind turbines and millions of solar panels to a coal fired grid and its carbon dioxide gas emissions continue to rise and are magnitudes higher than its nuclear-powered neighbour, France.
New Zealand government trying to close down farming with draconian fresh water and environmental regulations
Letter to the Editor
Agenda 21/30 strikes NZ
Biggest ever farm protests in European history last week hidden by Australian media, and they are running a nation-wide campaign for government transparency?
Your advert and info of new book about Port Arthur which someone has just emailed to me. Google a book titled, CHRISTCHURCH MASSACRE: SATANISM & JOHN PODESTA posted on “Genuine Christianity” website in USA.
Also, although a different subject, which may be of interest to you, right now the NZ Government in collaboration with the Netherlands Government is trying to URGENTLY close down all pastoral farming with new draconian ‘Climate Change’ fresh water and environmental regulations (under UN Agenda 21 which they never mention) which will put most farmers out of business.
The Dutch farmers are awake to the seriousness of these UN Green fascist proposals and have been holding the biggest farming protests in Europe’s history the past two weeks, but the news of this has been totally censored by the mainstream media in NZ, hence our farmers still are doing virtually nothing to oppose the proposals. You know the apathetic old story down under, “She’ll be right mate!” Google “YouTube – Netherlands farmers protest 16 October, 2019.” Another massive protest is planned for next week. Appreciate your work. Jack N.Z.
Global warming madness has peaked, now lets hope the extinction mob do become extinct, because the sane people of the world haven’t got problem
by Viv Forbes, science writer
For over 15 years the global warmists have become progressively more outspoken with their scare stories, and less careful with facts and science.
But their latest tactics of promoting Extinction Hellions and exploiting a teenage Swedish Doomsayer represent alarmist over-reach.
Ordinary people are becoming suspicious: “If their science is sound, why do they resort to media scare stories, traffic disruption, street rebellions, school truants, religious zealots and academic purging?”
We are close to the peak of this global warming madness. Their models and forecasts have failed and consumers suffer soaring electricity cost and blackouts while tenured academics produce Play-School plans for 100% “Green” power.
Climate sense is finally starting to ooze through the cracks in the stone wall built to keep Skeptics out of the flimsy marquee that shelters the warming nobility.
