ALP and Greens shun coal taking Australia back to dark ages

The world is in the process of building 1600 new coal-fired power stations many using Australian coal. Bring on all the life-supporting CO2 we can get

When China halted plans for more than 100 new coal-fired power plants this year, even as President Trump vowed to “bring back coal” in America, the contrast seemed to confirm Beijing’s new role as a leader in the fight against climate change.

But new data on the world’s biggest developers of coal-fired power plants paints a very different picture: China’s energy companies will make up nearly half of the new coal generation expected to go online in the next decade.

1,600 new coal-fired power plants are planned or under construction in 62 countries.

The Malthusian ALP/Greens alliance has taken Australia back 100 years by scuttling coal fired power stations and dreaming the wind and sun will produce base-load power. God help us.

These Chinese corporations are building or planning to build more than 700 new coal plants at home and around the world, some in countries that today burn little or no coal, according to tallies compiled by Urgewald, an environmental group based in Berlin. Many of the plants are in China, but by capacity, roughly a fifth of these new coal power stations are in other countries.

Over all, 1,600 coal plants are planned or under construction in 62 countries, according to Urgewald’s tally, which uses data from the Global Coal Plant Tracker portal. The new plants would expand the world’s coal-fired power capacity by 43 percent.

The fleet of new coal plants would make it virtually impossible to meet the unrealistic and naïve goals set in the Paris climate accord, which aims to keep the increase in global temperatures from preindustrial levels below 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

The United States may also be back in the game. President Trump said he wanted to lift Obama-era restrictions on American financing for overseas coal projects as part of an energy policy focused on exports.

“We have nearly 100 years’ worth of natural gas and more than 250 years’ worth of clean, beautiful coal,” he said. “We will be dominant. We will export American energy all over the world, all around the globe.”

Vote fraud could cost Scomo government – ID required

by Jim O’Toole

“The mail-out by the Australian Bureau of Statistics to conduct the same-sex marriage survey in 2017 resulted in more than 248,000 individual envelopes marked ‘return to sender’  being returned to their office unopened.”

Turning up to vote at a state or federal election is the cornerstone of the democratic process, some politicians declare, but what if your vote no longer counts?

If you live in a marginal electorate where the result of an election hinges on just a few votes, each ballot paper is critical usually for either a Liberal or Labor candidate to decide their individual fate or perhaps who actually forms government.

What if there are more than 248,000 names on the Australian electoral roll which have been confirmed as unknown?

The mail-out by the Australian Bureau of Statistics to conduct the same-sex marriage survey in 2017 resulted in more than 248,000 individual envelopes marked ‘return to sender’  being returned to their office unopened.

The ABS has confirmed this incredible figure some of which it says could comprise those who did not wish to take part in the survey. It could also include those who had recently moved house or other names which simply are fictitious.

More worrying is the admission by the ABS that a quarter of a million envelopes marked ‘return to sender’ were destroyed.

The ABS advised it did not give names of the unknown addressees to the AEC to enable it to update the roll before shredding the envelopes.

The ABS used Australian Electoral Commission data direct from the electoral roll to address the 12,727,920 envelopes mailed through Australia Post.

The result of the federal election scheduled for May  almost certainly will be affected by vote fraud after the ABS disclosed there are more than 248,000 fictitious names on the roll

This means as of December 22, 2018 there were 248,000 names on the roll whose identity has not been confirmed.

In the federal seat of Herbert in Townsville at the 2016 election just 37 votes after a recount separated the ALP winner from the Liberal loser.

Having 248,000 votes up their sleeve will dictate the result of every election. But who would do that?

Correspondence in 2017 between Chairman of Vote Australia Lex Stewart and the ABS reveals  that … “during survey operations, letters which were marked return to sender (RTS) were sent via Australia Post to our processing contractor Fuji Xerox’s Sydney site.  This material was then kept separate from the millions of completed and returned surveys.

The letter continued, “Note that some envelopes may have been marked RTS because the recipient did not wish to participate in the survey and was returning the material.

“Once the completed surveys were scanned and processed, Fuji Xerox scanned the RTS mail held and sent this barcode data back to the ABS.

“All materials from the AMLPS has now been destroyed in accordance with industry best practice, Government secured document certification standards, and all relevant requirements of the Australian Governments Protective Security Policy Framework (PSPF)

“As at 24 November there had been 248,000 RTS mail items received.  We are unable to provide an exact final figure of RTS material from the AMLPS as we continue to receive RTS material.  This is because RTS is low priority mail for Australia Post, and we expect to keep receiving this especially from remote areas, for the next few months.

“The ABS will provide some aggregate metrics to the AEC on the volume of returned mail by area in order to assist with electoral maintenance or other future AEC activities. The ABS will not provide name or address information from the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey to the AEC.”  

After the 2016 federal election the AEC confirmed there were 18,000 voters who voted more than once.

Embedded in ALP-union genes, the motto for polling day is ‘vote early and often comrade’.

It is no secret in union circles that moles within the AEC supply bogus names and address lists to unionists and others complicit in voting fraud to use at polling booths across a given electorate.

Booth workers from all parties have reported busloads of voters converging on a polling place to vote with lists of fictitious names at correct addresses.

Senator Len Harris’ office in 2004 was given 16 AEC envelopes addressed with false names at a single legitimate address in St Lucia, a Brisbane suburb not far from Queensland University.

Compulsory ID will prevent much of this fraud but what of previous elections which have been won by dud votes?

Vote Australia Chairman Lex Stewart said he and his organisation had been warning the AEC and the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters for more than 15 years that the roll contained hundreds of thousands of fictitious entries.

Finally the JSCEM in a 2018 review recommended the federal government introduce voter ID at federal elections to be produced by a voter before applying for a ballot paper at a polling booth.

In 2014 the JSCEM held its usual post-election inquiry into the conduct of the 2013 election.

Then Acting AEC Electoral Commissioner, Thomas Rogers observed there were startling differences between the NSW state roll and the federal roll.

“Yesterday the committee asked the New South Wales state manager, Mr Orr, for information on roll divergence in New South Wales. I have with me information by State on the divergence, and I am happy to discuss this with this committee,” Mr Rogers said.

“But, as an example, in New South Wales as at 30 September 2014 there were 139,898 more electors on the New South Wales state roll than the federal roll.

“And there were also 102,427 electors enrolled at different addresses. As you can see from this example, the divergence is a very significant issue …. ”

Mr Stewart said the cessation of physical habitation checks by the AEC of every Australian household some years ago has resulted in a completely inaccurate roll which has a sufficient number of fictitious entries to change the result of an election.

“The NSW Electoral Roll for the 28/3/15 election contained 5,040,662 entries.

“This ‘divergence’ between the two Rolls of 139,898 was therefore 2.8%,

‘very significant’ is a euphemism for ‘disgraceful !

“The AEC also admitted that this ‘divergence’ was higher than it had ever been!

“The discrepancy of 102,427 on both Rolls but at different addresses was 2.0%

“The divergence plus the discrepancy add up to 242,325 or 4.8% of the roll !

“Is it suspicious that such a record amount of divergence-plus-discrepancy occurred only a short time before the NSW State election ?

“How reliable could the result of the 2015 NSW State election have been, based on such deficient electoral rolls ?

“The total of 242,325 is an average of 2,594 per 93 state electorates

“Many seats are won or lost by margins of less than 1,000 votes

How many seats were swung by bogus votes from bogus enrolments?” Mr Stewart asked.

Farm terrorists cause havoc inciting invasion and sabotage of private property

Home-grown farm terrorists have produced a website map of nearly every Australian farming property ostensibly to incite farm invasions and terrorist activities in a campaign to shut down agriculture in all regional areas.

https://www.farmonline.com.au/story/5861952/family-farms-targeted-by-animal-activists-name-and-shame-campaign/

Ringleaders include Chris Delforce of Aussie Maps, Lyn White, Animals Australia, Mimi Bekhechi, PETA Campaigns Advisor.

Animals Australia animal terrorist leader, Lyn White

These anarchists have thousands of dim-witted followers who finance the sabotage of piggeries, feedlots, poultry farms, grazing properties, abattoirs, livestock transport, horse races, rodeos, camp drafts and pony clubs.

Notably all three ringleaders and most of their followers are vegans and due to their diet, have acute trace element deficiencies which usually leave the victim with mental issues often causing severe schizophrenia and delusionary behaviour.

The federal Agriculture Minister David Littleproud has slammed the online map and jumped on the farm invasions calling for each group’s charity status to be withdrawn, in an effort to starve the groups of funds.

Farmers on social media have demanded the terrorists to be prosecuted under federal terrorism laws for attempting to destroy or contaminate public food supplies.

Meanwhile investigators have discovered Animals Australia has again been caught paying bribes to animal workers to deliberately harm animals at abattoirs or on board livestock ships while being filmed.

The fake footage is then supplied to the conspiratorial ABC for viewing by a gullible public.

The Greens Party should be included in any prosecutions of the terrorists for giving the groups political support.

Cairns News supports the prosecution of these farm terrorists under counter-terrorism laws. Farmers are urged to make a complaint to the Federal Police or ring the NATIONAL SECURITY HOTLINE 1800 123 400

The Attorney General’s website states:

‘It is an offence to counsel, promote, encourage or urge the doing of a terrorist act or the commission of a terrorism offence where the person intentionally engages in the conduct reckless as to whether another person will engage in a terrorist act or commit a terrorism offence.

If found guilty of advocating terrorism, a person could face up to five years imprisonment.’

 

Brits want a ‘no deal’ Brexit departure or threaten revolution

Oliver Cromwell reincarnated

from Neon Nettle

Yellow vest activists in the UK took to the streets of London on Friday protesting for ‘a clean exit’ from the European Union, according to reports. The group expressed mistrust in politicians and British Prime minister Theresa May, who recently gained the confidence vote despite the escalating chaos around Brexit.

One activist, who spoke to Sputnik News, said they voted Brexit because they wanted to reclaim control of their own country. “We don’t want to be part of the federal European superstate that’s going to erode our rights and take away democracy.”

Brits demand a ‘no deal’ Brexit departure or there will be a revolution. “We are not Europeans”  the protesters yelled!

“This is Britain. We are not European.

“We have never been European. This is our land, and we are taking it back.”

“If the political class doesn’t like it, they will see a revolution as they’ve never seen before. It is time to take up the spirit of Oliver Cromwell, rise and reclaim what’s rightfully ours.”

The activists, inspired by the recent “gilet jaunes” uprising in France, protested outside Downing Street, Tower Bridge, Westminster Bridge, and London Bridge. The group warned about their determination to support Brexit among other causes.

“The yellow vests are just a start. This will spread out to the whole country,” an activist told Sputnik.

According to a named source in the UK’s armed forces, London has tasked troops with developing a plan to prevent an uprising if the country leaves the European Union without a deal.

“We don’t want the deal. Dump the deal: no deal Brexit but trading under World Trade Organization terms.”

 

Poland climatefest locked Australia into Paris Climate Accord

Letter to the editor

Dear Editor

An interesting bulletin concerning December’s climate conference in Poland

noted that “…Australia sent 46 bureaucrats agreeing to shut down the remnants

of domestic industry…”

I am sure people will be thrilled with that as official, but largely unannounced,

government “policy” (the bureaucrats won’t make the undertaking unless told to

by their governmental superiors).

We already know that many of our industries have been off-shored, but the use

of the word remnants is particularly galling given that governments and

candidates always waffle the jobs, jobs, jobs mantra at election time whilst in full

knowledge of  the fact that sufficient numbers of apprentices, managers, etc, have

never been trained, supposedly necessitating the importing of foreigners to do these tasks.

So we  know, then, who the jobs are for, for for!

Australia sent 46 climate changing bureaucrats to play God with the weather, which most people (except ALP politicians)know is always changing. This lot committed Australia to the dreadful Paris Climate Accord which the UN has cleverly designed to transfer whatever wealth we have left to them!

If this is not government dropping the ball, then “agreeing to shut down the remnants

of Australian industry” is an even worse insult and evidence, seemingly, that government

is not at all interested in creating opportunities for Australians.

Yes, NDIS jobs may have been moved to Geelong, but they are just pants-shiner jobs that

have been moved from somewhere else, and do not represent future export income

related to merchandise other countries might buy off us.

These jobs do not represent anything related to the usual catch-all phrase “Sustainable.”

And if “shutting down the remnants of Australian industry” is the future, then what, actually,

is the Future?

ALP still hates the bush by its rush to close rural training colleges

ALP suggests college infrastructure should be converted to camps for illegal immigrants

Milk does not originate in a bottle from Coles or Woolies Mr Furner!

from Viv Forbes

The enemies of the bush (resident in green-and-pleasant Brisbane) want to close the Queensland pastoral colleges in droughty Longreach and Emerald.

It’s time for the Feds to act – slash spending on the climate alarm and climate tourism industries and use the money to save these threatened colleges.

Students learning sheep husbandry at Longreach Pastoral College, est 1967. It and the Emerald College will be closed down by the Marxists of the ALP. The hopeless Minister for Agriculture, Mark Furner, a former senior union organiser and senator, knows nothing about the rural sector or from where his next meal will originate. Furner is a typical union hack, not unlike Bill Shorten who infest our parliaments just like termites in a nest or flies on a carcase. Pic -ABC

For too long tax payers have watched federal agencies like CSIRO waste money on climate models that do not work, on carbon accounting that is not needed, on never-ending climate jamborees, and on re-invention of “carbon farming”.

Our great pastoral industries need trade-skilled people with relevant academic knowledge. They do not need lectures from city academics in green uniforms who are often hostile to rural industry.

Agriculture Minister mark Furner, a former ALP senator, union organiser now farm eradicator, wants to shut down the State’s multimillion dollar rural training colleges and fill them up with Muslim refugees

Farming parents would prefer their taxes were spent on local colleges educating their sons and daughters in practical skills rather than sending them to the coast to learn how to smoke pot, drink beer, buy ice and follow the green religion.

Our rural food bowl is far more important to Australia than all the tax-supported climateers with their dodgy science, biased forecasts and green propaganda.

Editor:

The Marxist Queensland Labor Party intends to close the famous Longreach Pastoral College and the Emerald Agricultural College after receiving a negative report on the future of rural training from the notorious ALP stooge and socialist, Professor Peter Coaldrake. The dumb Minister Mark Furner sat on it until early December, hoping its release would get caught up in Christmas madness and pass unnoticed.

Furner further suggests the college buildings be used for accommodating illegal immigrants and refugees, including Muslims. This slap in the face for the hard-pressed rural sector struggling to find trained recruits after enduring years of drought comes from an totally urbanised, socialist, Marxist Labor Party Government which prefers to pass laws allowing doctors to kill unborn babies.

It also heralds the ALP plan to flood the country with unwanted and often subversive immigrants from Muslim countries, at the instruction of the United Nations.

The agricultural sector could die out completely which would suit the Labor traitors.

Katters Australian Party Queensland leader Robbie Katter has foreshadowed legislation to counter the ALP closure plan.

 

Australia in boots and all with climate racketeers at Poland conference

Liberal and Labor supported 46 emissaries now back home to spread climate scare stories while the absent US throws a party to celebrate fossil fuels

December 16, 2018

Negotiators from around the world struck an eleventh-hour deal Saturday, laying out rules to implement the Paris Agreement and keep the landmark 2015 climate accord intact.

But it wasn’t easy.

The two-week, drawn-out fight that included a rehashing of old battles and the introduction of new ones stretched late into the night here at the COP 24 UN climate conference in Katowice, Poland. The pitched battle hints at challenges to come in the global fight against climate change as the new world order continue to face a wave of political pressure that has put a strain on international cooperation.

15 December 2018, Poland, Katowice:  Australia sent 46 bureaucrats agreeing to shut down the remnants of domestic industry.  President Michal Kurtyka (M) of the UN Climate Change Conference COP24, and other participants of the climate summit are pleased about the decision of the compromise at the world climate summit.

“It has been a long road,” said Polish Energy State Secretary Michał Kurtyka, who served as President of the conference. “This deal hangs in fragile balance, we will all have to give in order to gain.

The issues on the table in Katowice were largely technical questions centering on accounting, finance and seemingly arcane word choices that signal how aggressively countries will cut their emissions. But geopolitics never lurked far from the surface, and the urgency of climate change never proved great enough to keep the politics from bubbling up and disrupting proceedings.

“People are pulling away at the edges of the multilateral system and you wonder whether or not it’s going to unravel further,” said Rachel Kyte, who headed the World Bank’s climate-change program and who now leads Sustainable Energy for All, before the final decision. “Is the beginning of something bigger? How do we cope with it?”

The potential for disruption was clear from the beginning. The U.S., the world’s biggest economy and second-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, promised to exit the Paris Agreement last year under President Trump’s direction. This left a void in leadership even as the U.S. officially remains in the talks until it’s eligible to withdraw in 2020. That void opened the door for others to rebel, particularly in places where climate change does not jive with the priorities of populist or authoritarian governments.

In a highly-publicized affair, the U.S. held an event promoting fossil fuels, during which a White House official argued that the country was injecting a dose of “reality” in the face of “alarmism” around climate change. The event won the support of Australia, whose ambassador for the environment joined the panel. And a senior administration official said that other countries had conveyed that they appreciate the U.S. perspective even if they don’t feel comfortable stating so publicly. “They don’t talk about it as much,” said a senior administration official. But, “there’s an appreciation for the realism.”

 

In another conflict, Brazil faced off against the rest of the world when it threatened to reject any deal because of language that would fix an accounting loophole that gives the country double credit for preserving forests in the Amazon. The rest of world protested, but Brazil refused to budge and in the final hours negotiators decided to punt the issue to a future conference.

One of the biggest clamors of the conference came as four oil producing countries, including the U.S, Russia and Saudi Arabia, questioned the validity of climate science and refused to recognize the legitimacy of a report from the IPCC, the UN’s climate science body, showing the effects of climate change if temperatures rise more than 1.5°C.

Changing geopolitics even hit in places where governments care deeply about the threat of climate change. The wave of populism in the European Union fractured the block, weakening its negotiating position. Alden Meyer, director of strategy and policy at the Union of Concerned Scientists and a longtime climate negotiations expert, cited political change in Italy, the ongoing Brexit fiasco and the weak positions of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emanuel Macron as contributing to the E.U.’s struggle to wrangle other countries. “There’s always some of these clashes, but it’s more acute here,” he says.

And then there’s the U.S. relationship with China, which is in disarray over ongoing trade issues. The two countries, while often at odds in previous negotiations, often served as mediators between developing and developed countries and helped broker key deals. “There was a capacity to be a convener, each of us,” says Todd Stern, who served as the chief U.S. negotiator under Obama, of the U.S. and China. “That’s not available right now.”

All of these disruptions helped push the talks long into overtime, with a mix of yawns and applause when Kurtyka finally called the conference to an end more than a day later than originally scheduled. The deal that resulted came as a relief: the multilateral approach to fighting climate change will live to see another day.

At the same time, the new agreement left much to be desired from nearly all parties. “I trust that whenever you found dissatisfaction in one part of the text, it was balanced with satisfaction in another,” said Kurtyka.

Perhaps more importantly, all but the most out-of-touch acknowledged that the deal leaves much work to be done if the world actually hopes to limit temperature rise to 1.5°C, a level that the new IPCC report shows could wipe some countries off the map and cause widespread devastation across the planet.

“Carbon emissions keep rising and rising,” Mohamed Nasheed, former president of the Maldives, told reporters before the deal was finalized. “All we seem to be doing is talking and talking and talking.”

As countries continue to wind through the difficult international negotiation process, the obvious answer to make up for the gap caused by political disruption lies outside of the political system. Indeed, some local governments, businesses and apolitical multilateral organizations are already trying to take charge.

For most of the two decades that the U.N. has held these meetings, talk has focused on how to make action on climate change happen at a nebulous point in the future. Now, in large part thanks to the Paris Agreement, that action has already begun. And, while the international system is doomed to be defined by the least common denominator, many cities, states and businesses have stepped up to the challenge. In the months leading up to this conference, the World Bank committed $200 billion in climate investments, a slew of businesses lobbied for market solutions to climate change and alliances of sub-national governments in Japan, Argentina and Mexico joined the U.S. in making commitments to fill the gap in their national governments’ efforts.

“To combat climate change we need much much more than government,” says Laurence Tubiana, CEO of the European Climate Foundation and a central framer of the Paris Agreement. “It’s not for state only. It’s for society.”

The only issue is that none of this is moving fast enough. The IPCC report shows that temperatures have already risen 1°C as a result of human activity and that figure will surpass 1.5°C as early as 2030 without a dramatic shift in direction. A lot of work is necessary to facilitate such a shift. And that’s going to be a huge challenge so long as political tensions persist.

Federal inquiry into Qld Labor’s iniquitous Vegetation Management Act

The House Standing Committee on Agriculture and Water Resources today launched a new inquiry(Dec 7) into the impact on the agricultural sector of vegetation and land management policies, regulations and restrictions, and called for submissions.

The Committee’s Chairman, Rick Wilson MP, acknowledged that the impact of land management and vegetation policies can be significant on the agricultural sector.

“Bushfires, expanding land use, and hazard management can dictate the future of regional, rural and remote land areas. The Committee’s inquiry into these issues is timely, given the current and impending natural disaster probability”.

The Committee will be inquiring into these impacts, with particular regard to:

  • Past and current practices of land and vegetation management by the agricultural sector and regional industries;
  • The science behind activities such as back burning, clearing and rehabilitation;
  • The economic impact of vegetation and land management policies, regulations and restrictions;
  • The impact of severe fires on the agricultural landscape, agricultural production and industry in regional, rural and remote areas;
  • Factors that contribute to fire risk in regional, rural and remote areas; and
  • The role the agricultural sector has in working with emergency services and forestry management officials in managing fire risk.

The Committee will be accepting submissions until Friday 25 January 2019.

Labor’s Lima Agreement betrayed Australia

Letter to the Editor

Dear Prime Minister,

 I write with concern and trepidation, with regard to the published “Lima Agreement” signed off on by Australia in 1975 by (the late) Labor senator and Foreign Affairs Minister Don Willesee and successive governments on both sides of the house have been complicit in betraying Australia. Yes betraying Australia, until we are at the point where our economy will implode. We have appeasers soothing over our questions and calling us nay-sayers.

(Television personality Mike Willesee is a son of Don Willesee-Editor)

ALP Foreign Affairs Minister Don Willesee signed the notorious Lima Agreement in 1975 which stripped Australia of its manufacturing ability and handed it to third world countries. Neither the ALP nor the Liberals have made any attempt since to repeal this treacherous law.

Well Winston Churchill once said, an appeaser is one who feeds the crocodile, hoping it will eat him last. How true.

Currently, I see no voter having any respect for politicians, you have shown yourselves to be self serving time servers. Yet again today we see and read of another tawdry episode by a politician.

But will they charge the national politician ? Will they  hell, no doubt he will be quietly given a promotion and hidden from sight.

PM, your whole rotten morass can sink no lower, the many folks I have spoken to just won’t waste their time even discussing politicians.

 It is easily seen now that Australia is slave to the UN, to Agenda 21(now 30) and the Lima Agreement.

 Thank you very much for selling out our great land, you are traitors all.
