31 deaths and 2600 burnt out homes has not yet woken up governments as Canberra is again threatened by wildfire

by staff writers

The futility of using aircraft to impede large bushfires has been borne home after a converted military C-130 Hercules four prop tanker crashed near Cooma (NSW) killing all three American crewmen.

Dense smoke and poor visibility was blamed by authorities for causing the accident.

“Tragically, there appears to be no survivors as a result of the crash down in the Snowy Monaro area,” Shane Fitzsimmons, the Rural Fire Services Commissioner for New South Wales, said at a news conference.

The tragedy brings the death toll from the blazes to at least 31 since September. The fires have also destroyed more than 2,600 homes and razed more than 10.4 million hectares (25.7 million acres).

New age, politically correct firefighting techniques which include aircraft have proven ineffective in fighting large bush fires.

Water bombing wildfires a public relations exercise

Tens of millions of dollars have been wasted in highly dangerous water and fire retardant bombing, giving only false hope to property owners.

While the retardant might slow down a fire the evidence from the firefront shows water only temporarily slows a hot fire with a several kilometre long front, particularly when the Hercules can drop only 15,000 litres at a time.

The aircraft has to land at the closest suitable airfield, fill up with water then take off to the fire ground, a round trip of 90 minutes or more depending on the distance from the airstrip.

These aircraft cost the federal government more than $15,000 an hour each to operate.

The tried and proven method of constructing wide fire breaks with dozers and graders then back burning has become politically incorrect and almost no footage of machinery building fire breaks has been shown by any of the television networks.

The fire services and government instead ensure the wider viewing audience sees plenty of shots of aerial bombers dropping pink retardant which in reality is a public relations, conditioning exercise to imbue the public.

Struggling volunteer firemen on the ground had no chance of stopping any of these huge conflagrations without constructed firebreaks.

Anecdotal evidence reveals the use of machinery at these mega-fires was very limited. In years past there would and should have been dozens of graders and dozers making breaks.

Desk jockeys of the Fire and Emergency Services had no idea how to fight these fires. They should have known months before that fire breaks were needed.   What happened?

Regional firefighters would have informed the hierarchy of the impending danger of excessive fuel loads and should have done something about it like hazard reduction burning from fire breaks.

A thousand or more dwellings of the 2600 destroyed were surrounded by eucalyptus trees and dry grass of any length was growing up to the back door in many cases.

Fire can run along 10mm high dry grass in house yards even though it gives the appearance of bare ground if the wind and weather conditions are right and the only way it can be stopped is with a fire break and water. There were almost no breaks around house yards.

Trees growing around homes for 100 metres should have been felled and pushed away. There was no preventative preparation. Why not?

If you want trees growing out of your lounge room then expect to get burnt out.

Insurance companies would be mugs to pay for losses under these circumstances. Sue the state governments.

Fire survivors who have lost everything should place the blame squarely on the political party duopoly, Greens and Bob Brown and in some cases themselves for a lack of preparation.

Volunteer firefighters should have objected to the lack of preparation. They should have refused to go into some of these danger zones.  Instead six are now dead.

So-called ‘climate change’ has absolutely nothing to do with the size and intensity of these fires.

Greenpeace co-founder Dr Patrick Moore says we need much more CO2 in the atmosphere

by Terry Schulze

I was fascinated by Patrick Moore’s comment about CO2 at 150 ppm and how the plants would die. I went and did some research and sure enough he’s right. Here’s a bit from my research –

Atmospheric CO2 is not alarmingly high, it is too low for optimal plant growth and alarmingly low for the survival of carbon-based terrestrial life. The real danger is not too much CO2 – it is CO2 starvation. Over geologic time, CO2 is ~permanently sequestered in carbonate rocks.

Plants evolved at atmospheric CO2 concentrations of 2000 ppm and greater, and many grow best at about 1200 ppm CO2 – about 3 times current levels. That is why greenhouse operators maintain 1000-1200 ppm CO2 in their greenhouses.

Major food crops (except corn) use the C3 photosynthetic pathway, and die at about 150 ppm from CO2 starvation – that is just 30 ppm below the minimum levels during the last Ice Age, which ended just 10,000 years ago – “the blink of an eye” in geologic time. Earth came that close to a major extinction event.

During one of the next Ice Ages, unless there is massive human intervention, atmospheric CO2 will decline to below 150 ppm and that will be the next major extinction event – not just for a few species but for ~all complex terrestrial carbon-based life forms.

Will NSW Rural Fire Service Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons comment on this strange beam in the sky at a fire

These photos compliments of ‘State of the Nation’

Just like Operation Torch California, hard evidence of DEWs appearing throughout Australian bushfires (Video + Photo Proof)

NSW Rural Fire Service Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said he was offended he wasn’t told the army was coming to help with logistics for the bush fires emergency. What a shame he didn’t get on his knees and thank them for coming or better still thank the Prime Minister for arranging the deployment.

Can the NSW Fire Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons explain what this beam of light might be which was photographed at a NSW fire by a volunteer?

 

Maybe the army reservists might have a better idea of fighting bush fires by dropping off some of military’s numerous bulldozers and graders to build proper firebreaks just as the rural brigades did in the past.

Defence Force Chief of the reservists Major General Justin Ellwood offered the Army’s vast array of heavy machinery to Victoria, NSW and South Australia. It is not known if the states accepted his offer.

The hundreds of thousands of people affected by these fires should be angry, bloody angry, and take their wrath out on the ALP/Liberal duopoly, the Greens the Wilderness Society and the Australian Conservation Foundation.

Political correctness and dangerous regulations have prevented volunteers from using proper fire controls

Don’t blame the volunteers who have been hamstrung in their valiant efforts by political correctness in fire management and control strategies which by the countless television footage seen across the world is just patently wrong and ineffective.

Dropping a few thousand litres of water onto flames from aircraft is ineffective and at $15,000 per plane, per hour, a waste of money. The only solution is to let the huge fire mass burn out on a wide break after back burning from the break.

Have the rural crews in place to extinguish spot fires with water, dozers and a helicopter.

Building a break naturally requires trees to be pushed over and even in the face of such massive destruction was not permitted by ALP/Liberal policies.

The RFS had sufficient time to build breaks in southern NSW and East Gippsland before the conflagration arrived. They could have started 6 months ago.

Have a Royal Commission? Another ALP sick joke from an Opposition leader so far out of his depth an oxygen tank can’t save him.

After the duplicitous Royal Commission into the financial industry few are interested in another show trial.

Drain the socialist, bureaucratic swamp, clean out the universities, get rid of UN Agenda 21/30 and a host of other, similar treaties various governments have signed us into, repeal the thousands of dangerous environmental regulations imposed by states and the Commonwealth and start again after input from rural farm land managers and Forestry Departments.

Can we get Donald Trump here on a three month contract?

 

Nostalgia-what happened to our manufacturing industries?

Ten years ago Australia had five car manufacturers, Ford, GMH, Toyota, Nissan and Mitsubishi.

Now we have none. All gone overseas and the reason given? Costs were to high. Funny in that the cars we are now importing (Malaysia etc) are no cheaper.  

I remember back in 1968 living in Brisbane, when the 3 major cities back then were Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide a
nd Adelaide was the Industrial City.

Adelaide – South Australia, was where you went to work in the Iron Ore Industry, or where you could get a job making railway tracks for B.H.P.

You could get a job building ships, submarines, cars, washing machines, fridges, TV’s, Hills hoists, Victa Lawn Mowers or make tyres at Bridgestone tyres.

Treacherous politicians in 1986 ratified the Lima Agreement, entered into in 1975 by Whitlam, which transferred Australia’s manufacturing industries to Asia. These FX model Holdens were made in Australia starting in 1948. Today all car makers have left our shores.

Lightburn Washing Machine Company even made a car called a Zeta.
 It was not much of a car, but at least it was Australian and we built it.
 I worked at Stanvac where we made our own Petrol, Diesel, Kerosene and Oil.
 We had Oil Rigs in Bass Straight, North West Shelf and the Timor Sea.
 We even had Australian owned Service Stations like (H.C. Sleigh) Golden Fleece and many of us young wanna-be mechanics back then worked as a driveway attendant. (Just like Stanley).

I remember catching a train from the city to Gawler and then on to Freeling, Hamley Bridge, Stockport, Riverton, up to Clare, Gladstone, Laura etc.
 And all these towns were bustling with activity, and on the weekends they were all open for business.
 Our shops were filled on every shelf with food and products all proudly made or grown, in Australia.
 Our fridge was full of Lamb Chops and Steaks because it was cheap as we were a huge Lamb and Beef growing Nation.
 And once a month Mum would make us all a delicacy!
 It was called a Sunday Roast Chicken.

I remember when we all had trade skills and high quality tools that would last and last.
 But most of all we had Mates. We as Australians watched each other’s backs even if we had not met yet, and we all said G’Day to everyone with a smile.
 Our kids could go anywhere they liked on their bikes, just as long as they were home before dark.

Australia was pretty safe back then.
Yes, Australia was once a self supporting nation that had it all.
 It had Farms that produced our dairy, fruit & vegies and meats etc.
 And Politicians back then were known as Statesmen and they were voted by the people, for the people, on behalf of the people and did what the people wanted.

We had public utilities owned by us the people, that guaranteed our Electricity, Water and Sewage forever.

No one knew how much the Snowy Mountain Scheme cost, we just built it.

No one knew how much the Sydney Harbour Bridge or the Indian-Pacific railway cost!

WE JUST BUILT IT!

Who Signed the Lima Declaration?

 

Then came CORPORATE GREED.

Now everything above has GONE.

Now we don’t watch each other’s backs anymore but watch each other through security bars, burglar alarms, and security screens.

Now we dob each other in.

Now we import poor quality processed food.

Now we import cheap tools that break just taking them out of the packet they come in.

Now we rely on ships to bring in our fuels.

Now we can’t afford our own Lamb or Beef anymore.

Now we eat steroid pumped chicken just about every day.

Now we import trade skill workers on 457 Visa’s.

Now we have high unemployment as nearly all of our Industry and Manufacturing has gone offshore.

Now we have that many Laws that we have just about outlawed ourselves.

But I guess we need even more laws, so now we will have Sharia Law as well.
 We now pay for water that falls out of the sky at $3.80 a litre.

Now we have taxes for everything.

Taxes for carbon, taxes for sake of having taxes, (They call them Levy’s).

And don’t forget the newest tax is the ISLAMIC TAX (Halal Certification)

Now here in South Australia in our towns we have Railway Stations and railway tracks, but no trains.

We have Public Bus Stops in our Towns but no buses.
 We have Hospitals and Clinics but very few Doctors or Nurses.

We all have Mobile Phones, and have little to no reception.

We have Digital TV’s with Bugger all Signal in the country.

And the worst of all, is our once great nation is being sold off, piece by piece to every other country on earth, except us.

Tis very sad but very true! Enjoy whats left while you can?

The Australia we knew when growing up is now STUFFED!!!

Bushfires and drought to help depopulate the bush making way for smart cities

Is the directed energy weapon used to make way for an infrastructure of “smart cities” in Australia?

L’arme à énergie dirigée est-elle utilisée pour faire place à une infrastructure de «villes intelligentes» en Australie ?

“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)

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.

Telstra and UK telcos ignore warnings from health professionals, keep rolling out 5G

by Robert J Lee

Drivers die after driving Smart Ambulances

In Cornwall, England a protest group, Villagers Against Masts, launched local and national campaigns to call for greater scrutiny of mobile phone technology and coverage, citing serious concerns over health risks, especially mental health.

Smart Ambulances said to be killing drivers in the UK. Telstra has invested hundreds of millions of dollars to introduce 5G across Australia, defying warnings from research facilities and the health industry

VAM has alleged 5G-Enabled Smart Ambulance tests have contributed to multiple deaths of UK ambulance workers.

In September 2019, O2, a leading telecommunications services provider in the United Kingdom, announced it will be providing connectivity for a new “Smart Ambulance” at Millbrook Proving Ground, a vehicle testing facility in Bedford. The purpose of the trial is to enable O2 to develop and test the system “before it is deployed on the public network, replicating real world 5G capabilities.” According to the press release on O2’s website:

“The project will involve equipping a standard ambulance with state-of-the-art devices and connectivity to create a ‘Smart Ambulance’ that will simulate 5G connectivity, transforming the vehicle into a unique remote consultation room.”

In a concerning series of events, news reports out of England have revealed that three employees at the East of England Ambulance Service Trust (EEAST) died suddenly last month. An article in the Welwyn Hatfield Times reports that the EEAST employees included: Christopher Gill, 41, who died at Welwyn Garden City’s Birch Court in Howlands on November 15; and another paramedic from Luton, Richard Grimes, and 999 operator Luke Wright, 24, from Norwich also died between November 11 and 21.

When contacted about the incident and cause of death for the EEAST employees, a media relations representative from EEAST said:

“There is an ongoing investigation and out of respect for the families of our colleagues we will not be releasing any further information…. We do not have 5G enabled smart ambulances and we are not trialing or using 5G technology.”

However, a September 2019 Mobile Marketing article about the O2 smart ambulance testing states,

“O2 is currently providing the devices and connectivity for a similar trial involving six ambulances at the East of England Ambulance Trust, led by Visionable, and funded by the UK’s innovation agency Innovate UK.”

Also in September 2019, the Telegraph reported,

“O2, the mobile phone giant, is set to begin testing ‘smart ambulances’ equipped with next generation 5G technology later this month in a deal with Samsung and the NHS. Britain’s biggest mobile network operator by number of users will pilot the technology on six ambulances from the East of England Ambulance Trust to create new services for emergency vehicles such as real-time video technology and high-quality scanners.”

Thermometers bursting in 18th century

Adelaide historical records shatter climate cultists

The hottest day was not in 2019, but 1828 at a blistering 53.9 °C. Back before man-made climate change was frying Australia, when CO2 was around 300ppm, the continent savoured an ideal pre-industrial climate…. RIGHT? This is the kind of climate we are spending $10bn per annum to get  back to … Right again?  We are told today’s climate has more records and more extremes than times gone by, but the few records we have from the early 1800s are eye-popping.

Things were not just hotter, but so wildly hot it burst thermometers.  The earliest temperature records we have show that Australia was a land of shocking heatwaves and droughts, except for when it was bitterly cold or raging in flood.  In other words, nothing has changed, except possibly things might not be quite so hot now!

State governments have instructed various meteorological bureaus to delete the historical heat wave data and records which killed many  NSW residents in 1896. In 1828 the young country copped a blistering 53.9C heat wave long before the CO2 deniers started their lying campaign.

Silliggy (Lance Pidgeon) has been researching records from early explorers and from newspapers. What he’s uncovered is fascinating!  It’s as if history is being erased! For all that we hear about recent record-breaking climate extremes, records that are equally extreme, and sometimes even more so, are ignored.  In January 1896 a savage blast “like a furnace” stretched across Australia from east to west and lasted for weeks. The death toll reached 437 people in the eastern states.  Newspaper reports showed that in Bourke the heat approached 120°F (48.9°C) on three days.

What I found most interesting about this was the skill, dedication and length of meteorological data taken in the 1800s. When our climate is “the most important moral challenge” why is it there is so little interest in our longest and oldest data?

Who knew that one of the most meticulous and detailed temperature records in the world from the 1800s comes from Adelaide, largely thanks to Sir Charles Todd.

The West Terrace site in Adelaide was one of the best in the world at the time, and provides accurate historic temperatures from  “Australia’s first permanent weather bureau at Adelaide in 1856”
http://www.rahs.org.au/history-resources/the-first-weather-bureau/>

Rainfall records even appear to go as far back as 1839.  Lance Pidgeon went delving into the National Archives and was surprised at what he found.

The media are in overdrive, making out that “the extreme heat is the new normal” in Australia.  You can’t blame those high records on man-made global warming!

Singapore Ag company sells 89,085 megalitres of Australian water to Canadian pension fund

Liberal and Labor party deregulation of farm water allows this profiteering of $311M for foreign companies which pay little or no Australian tax. How much longer will Australians put up with this sell-off of our natural assets, particularly water

SINGAPORE (THE BUSINESS TIMES) – A unit of Olam International is selling 89,085 megalitres (about 89 billion litres) of its permanent water rights in Australia to a related entity of the Public Sector Pension Investment Board (PSP Investments), one of Canada’s largest pension investment managers, for A$490 million (S$452.7 million).
The deal is expected to be completed in December 2019, whereupon Olam will receive cash proceeds of A$490 million. The agri and food giant is also expected to book a one-time pre-tax capital gain of about A$311 million.
Separately, PSP Investments has agreed to buy about 12,000 hectares of almond orchards and related assets in Victoria, Australia, that were previously leased to the Olam unit, Olam Orchards Australia (OOA).

Liberal and Labor free trade and de-regulation mantra has allowed huge profiteering for foreign companies by selling our water

Both the almond orchards and the associated water rights will continue to be operated by the subsidiary, said Olam.
OOA has entered into a new, tiered revenue sharing arrangement with PSP Investments for the almond orchards, related assets and permanent water rights. Under this arrangement, OOA will pay PSP Investments a share of revenue from the almond orchards.
The agreement is for an initial period of 25 years with options to renew for another 25 years.
Olam’s managing director and CEO of edible nuts Ashok Krishen said: “Consistent with our asset-light approach to tree crop production, this arrangement will enable Olam Orchards Australia to focus on operations and continue to deliver best-in-class products and services to customers.
“I am confident this partnership with PSP Investments will help lead the industry in sustainable farming and agricultural practices, and protect critical natural resources, such as water in Australia.”
In addition to the sale of its permanent water rights in Australia, Olam is in discussions to divest and/or restructure various assets and businesses in line with its strategic plan. Some of these deals may conclude in this financial year, said Olam.

Labor to lock up 1.5 million acres in the south east corner of Queensland to protect koalas

Its OK to feed koalas eucalyptus leaves; farmers get fined or jailed if they feed sheep or cattle mulga leaves to stay alive

by Jim O’Toole

The State Labor Government is moving to protect koalas in South East Queensland with new plans announced today to increase the protection of more than half a million hectares of land through a landmark new koala strategy.

At Currumbin Wildlife Hospital today, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Queenslanders are able to have their say on the draft South East Queensland Koala Conservation Strategy 2019-24, which paves the way toward greater protection.

“We know koalas are under threat and that is why my Government has been working with experts, the conservation sector, local governments and industry on a plan to ensure they are protected into the future,” the Premier said.

Christmas is coming for koalas but the ALP says let the cattle and sheep die

“Today we are releasing a landmark draft strategy and draft mapping that outline strong measures to protect koala habitat and address the threats impacting South East Queensland’s koala population.

“New mapping identifies more than 570,000 hectares of land to be declared koala priority areas – an area that is twice the size of the ACT – of which more than 300,000 hectares is core habitat.

“We are proposing to implement stronger regulations to limit clearing in these large interconnected areas of high quality habitat.

“Ensuring the protection of these large corridors of land will address one of the main causes of a declining koala population, which is the destruction of habitat.”

The Premier said today’s release of the draft strategy outlines existing and future actions to deliver on an election commitment to implement the Koala Expert Panel’s six recommendations for protecting koalas.

“We have a once in a generation chance to ensure their survival in the South East and that is why we are asking every Queenslander to get involved.

“Particularly as recent bushfires have had a devastating effect on the koala population with animals killed or badly injured, it’s never been a more pertinent time to act.”

People will have until 31 January 2020 to provide feedback on the draft strategy.

Ms Palaszczuk also today announced the Government was providing $50,000 for koala care infrastructure.

The Palaszczuk Government is also investing $2 million into establishing a five-year partnership with the Queensland Trust for Nature to deliver on-ground koala habitat restoration in priority areas through partnerships with landholders and local governments.

Minister for Environment Leeanne Enoch said the strategy was based on the best available science to protect habitat and give koalas the best chance of survival.

“Sadly, science has shown that koala populations have decreased by 50-80% in South East Queensland habitat areas over about 20 years and nearly three quarters of essential koala habitat has already been destroyed,” she said.

“Koalas are an iconic species of state, national and international importance and Queenslanders want to see them protected.”

Minister Enoch said koala habitat areas in the strategy were identified using internationally recognised, state-of-the-art modelling, including two decades of koala sighting records, scientific research and existing mapping by local councils.

The strategy has been developed in consultation with a dedicated Koala Advisory Council, which includes members of both conservation and development sectors as well as koala experts, First Nations representatives and local government.

Minister Enoch thanked the Koala Advisory Council for its hard work over the past year and its commitment to striking a balance between conservation and the needs of a growing population.

Koala Advisory Council Chair Mark Townend said the strategy was comprehensive and addressed multiple factors that threaten koalas.

“I would like to thank each and every member of the Council for pushing hard to represent their stakeholders and helping to achieve a forward-thinking and realistic strategy that will protect the koala population in our state,” Mr Townend said.

“The strategy addresses all threats impacting on koala populations including habitat loss, disease management, vehicle strikes and dog attacks.

“Queenslanders can be confident the koala will be in and around our backyards long into the future.”

The strategy builds on the Palaszczuk Government’s work to protect koalas including annual funding of $1.5 million to the South East Queensland Wildlife Hospital Network and the $1.4 million Community Sustainability Action Grants program.

Minister asked to block any sale of the Tip of Cape York to Chinese interests

LAST month, the Gudang/Yadhaykenu Aboriginal Corporation took tenure of 211 ha of land in Cape York, including the abandoned Pajinka Resort and it is reported that Chinese investors are negotiating with the Traditional Owners to purchase the land.

KAP Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter shares the concerns of Northern Peninsula Area Mayor, Eddie Newman, that a takeover of the resort by offshore Chinese investors would lead to a dire situation for the Traditional Owners, and would be a major national security threat for Australia.

The freehold deeds to 211 ha (527 acres) on the Tip of Cape York being handed to Bernard Charlie, a representative of the Gudang/Yadhaykenu Aboriginal Corporation, by the Deputy Director of Lands, Wally Kearnan.

“I have been reliably informed that Chinese buyers have visited the northern tip of Cape York on at least two occasions to inspect the abandoned resort, with a particular interest in photographing the northern rugged coastline,” Mr Katter said.

“Concerns raised by Mayor Eddie Newman are that due to no consultation there has been no safeguards for local jobs and no reassurance that the profits will actually go back into the local community.”

Options for rebuilding the resort will be discussed at the Gudang/Yadhaykenu Aboriginal Corporation’s annual general meeting tomorrow, Friday December 6.

“Why would they want the most northern point of Australia? The closest point to Papua New Guinea,” asked Mr Katter.

“There are numerous questions here and I would think the answers are pretty ugly.”

Mr Katter has taken the step of meeting with Home Affairs Minister, Peter Dutton, who has the power to block such foreign investment if it were to proceed.

“Losing control of the Torres Straits would be a national security disaster,” Mr Katter said.

“They’ve already handed over the Port of Darwin and given away the Ord in Western Australia. Almost every big cattle aggregation is foreign owned.

“The defence and security of this nation is precipitation for extreme anger in the United States and, infinitely more importantly, for every Australian who is just simply fed up with watching day after day the sell off of their country.

“The suits are parading around saying isn’t this foreign investment marvellous, but one day they’ll wake up in

a country that isn’t their own.”

Who is the real enemy of mankind?

Letter to the Editor

An excellent well detailed documentary with link below, exposes the perpetrators & who our real enemies are, right up to the snakes head. The SATANIC Rothschild.

We are today living in the world of the victors of that war and without an objective, rational and balanced view of our history, we are doomed to repeat the mistakes. After World War Two, the victors of the war not only went on to write our history books, infiltrate our media and public education but even going so far as to criminalize the mere questioning of the official story’s orthodoxy. The truth is, that our world today can only be understood through a correct understanding of World War II, the architects of it and the conflicts between Globalism and Nationalism. Between the old and new world order. The Traditional and the “Progressive”.

Day in and day out, has the post-war propaganda been pounded into the minds of three subsequent generations. Every medium of mass indoctrination has been harnessed to the task of training the obedient masses as to what the proper and “acceptable” view of this event should be. Academia, news media, public education, book publishing, TV documentaries, Hollywood films and politicians of every stripe all sing the same song.

For very good reasons, most people don’t trust the mainstream media anymore. You have already heard the official history millions of times.

This new epic documentary gives an overview of how Europe has been shaped in modern history. In it, you will find the secret history, where you will find the real causes of the events. Watch this series and uncover the real root causes of World War II. It will take you on an epic timeline that will transport you back in time and lead you on the journey through the Bolshevik Revolution, the communist attempts to take over Germany; hyperinflation during the Weimar Republic, widespread unemployment and misery, Adolf Hitler’s rise to power, World War I & II – all the way to the modern world. It presents the true historical events that lead to this world catastrophe known as the second world war, as well as the aftermath.

Queensland burns while Minister is drying out?

by Robert J Lee

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.

Wildfire destroyed this Yeppoon, Central Qld, home last week while the Fire and Emergency Services Minister Craig Crawford is missing in action, believed to undergoing alcohol rehabilitation

Minister for Fire and Emergency Services

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.
