Double world CO2 emissions and warming increases by just 1 degree

Consider this admission on 12 May 2012 by the prominent German meteorologist Klaus Eckart Puls in an interview by Bettina Hahne-Waldscheck of the Swiss magazine “Factum”, translated, summarized and paraphrased for brevity by P. Gosselin in a journal article titled “The Belief That CO2 Can Regulate Climate Is Sheer Absurdity”:

Bettina:  You’ve been criticizing the theory of man-made global warming for years.  How did you become skeptical?

Puls:  Ten years ago I simply parroted what the IPCC told us.  One day I started checking the facts and data — first I started with a sense of doubt but then I became outraged when I discovered that much of what the IPCC and the media were telling us was sheer nonsense and was not even supported by any scientific facts and measurements.  To this day I feel shame that as a scientist I made presentations of their science without first checking it . . . Scientifically it is sheer absurdity to think we can get a nice climate by turning a CO2 adjustment knob.

Bettina:  Is there really climate change?

Puls:  Climate change is normal.  There have always been phases of global warming, many that far exceeded the extent we see today.  But there hasn’t been any warming since 1998.  In fact the IPCC suppliers of data even show a slight cooling.

Bettina:  The IPCC is projecting 0.2 degrees Celsius warming per decade, i.e., 2 to 4 degrees Celsius by the year 2100.  What’s your view?

Puls:  These are speculative model projections, so-called scenarios — and no

Polar bear population has increased with moderately rising temperatures, from 5,000 50 years ago to 25,000 today and disappearing ice is a myth used for generating climate hysteria

prognoses.  Because of climate’s high complexity, reliable prognoses just aren’t possible.  Nature does what it wants, and not what the models present as prophecy.

The entire CO2 debate is nonsense.  Even if CO2 were doubled, the temperature would rise only 1 degree Celsius.  The remainder of the IPCC’s assumed warming is based purely on speculative amplification mechanisms.  Even though CO2 has risen, there has been no warming in 13 years.

Bettina:  How does sea level look?

Puls:  Sea level rise has slowed down.  Moreover, it has dropped a half centimeter over the last 2 years.  It’s important to remember that mean sea level is a calculated magnitude, and not a measured one.  There are a great number of factors that influence sea level, e.g., tectonic processes, continental shifting, wind currents, passats, volcanoes.  Climate change is only one of ten factors.

Bettina:  What Have we measured at the North Sea?

Puls:  In the last 400 years, sea level at the North Sea coast has risen about 1.40 meters.  That’s about 35 centimeters per century.  In the last 100 years, the North Sea has risen only 25 centimeters.

Bettina:  Does the sea level rise have anything to do with the melting North Pole?

Puls:  That’s a misleading conclusion.  Even if the entire North Pole melted, there would be no sea level rise because of the principles of buoyancy.

Bettina:  Is the melting of the glaciers in the Alps caused by global warming?

Puls:  There are many factors at play.  As one climbs a mountain, the temperature drops about 0.65 degrees Celsius per 100 meters.  Over the last 100 years it has gotten about 0.75 degrees Celsius warmer and so the temperature boundary has shifted up about 100 meters.  But observations tell us that ice also 1,000 meters up and higher has melted.  Clearly there are other reasons for this, namely soot and dust.  But soot and dust do not have only anthropogenic origins; they are also caused by nature via volcanoes, dust storms, and wildfires.  Advances and retreats of glaciers have always taken place throughout the Earth’s history.  Glaciology studies clearly show that glaciers over the last 10,000 years were smaller on average than today.

Bettina:  In your view, melting Antarctic sea ice and the fracture of a huge iceberg 3 years ago are nothing to worry about?

Puls:  To the contrary, the Antarctic ice cap has grown both in area and volume over the last 30 years, and temperature has declined.  This 30-year trend is clear to see.  The Amundsen Scott Station of the USA shows that temperature has been declining there since 1957.  90 percent of the Earth’s ice is stored in Antarctica, which is one and a half times larger than Europe.

Bettina:  Then why do we always read it is getting warmer down there?

Puls:  Here they are only talking about the West Antarctic peninsula, which is where the big chunk of ice broke off in 2008 — from the Wilkins-Shelf.  This area is hardly 1 percent of the entire area of Antarctica, but it is exposed to Southern Hemisphere west wind drift and some of the strongest storms of the planet.

Bettina:  What causes such massive chunks of ice to break off?

Puls:  There are lots of factors, among them the intensity of the west wind fluctuations.  These west winds have intensified over the last 20 years as part of natural ocean and atmospheric cycles, and so it has gotten warmer on the west coast of the Antarctic peninsula.  A second factor is the larger waves associated with the stronger storms.  The waves are more powerful and so they break off more ice.  All these causes are meteorological and physical, and have nothing to do with a climate catastrophe.

Bettina:  Then such ice breaks had to have occurred in the past too?

Puls:  This has been going on for thousands of years, also in the 1970’s back when all the talk was about “global cooling”.  Back then there were breaks with ice chunks hundreds of square kilometers in area.  People were even discussing the possibilities of towing these huge ice chunks to dry countries like South Africa or Namibia in order to use them as a drinking water supply.

Bettina:  What about all the media photos of polar bears losing their ice?

Puls:  That is one of the worst myths used for generating climate hysteria.  Polar bears  don’t eat ice, they eat seals.  Polar bears go hungry if we shoot their food supply of seals.  The polar bear population has increased with moderately rising temperatures, from 5,000 50 years ago to 25,000 today.

Bettina:  But is it true that unlike Antarctica, the Arctic is melting?

Puls:  It has been melting for 30 years.  That also happened twice already in the last 150 years.   The low point was reached in 2007 and the ice has since begun to recover.  There have always been phases of Arctic melting.  Between 900 AD and 1300 AD Greenland was green on the edges and the Vikings settled there.

Bettina:  And what do you say about the alleged expanding deserts?

Puls:  That doesn’t exist.  For example, the Sahara is shrinking and has lost in the north an area as large as Germany over the last 20 years.  The same is true in the South Sahara.  The famine that struck Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia was mainly caused by the leasing of large swathes of land to large international corporations so that they could grow crops for biofuels for Europe, and by war.  But it is much easier for prosperous Europe to blame the world’s political failures on a fictional climate catastrophe instead.

Bettina:  So we don’t need to do anything against climate change?

Puls:  There’s nothing we can do to stop it.  Scientifically, it is sheer absurdity to think we can get a nice climate by turning a CO2 adjustment knob.  Many confuse environmental protection with climate protection.  It’s impossible to protect the climate but we can protect the environment and our drinking water.  On the debate concerning alternative energies, which is sensible, it is often driven by the irrational climate debate.  One has nothing to do with the other.

Greta does not like raw eggs

One crisp winter morning in Sweden, a cute little girl named Greta woke up to a perfect world, one where there were no petroleum products ruining the earth She tossed aside her cotton sheet and wool blanket and stepped out onto a dirt floor covered with willow bark that had been pulverized with rocks.

What’s this?” she asked.

Pulverized willow bark,” replied her fairy godmother.

What happened to the carpet?” she asked.

Greta exclaims,” Saving the planet is hard work. Do I have to pull up the last of the fence palings to heat the eggs?”

The carpet was nylon, which is made from butadiene and hydrogen cyanide, both made from petroleum,” came the response.

Greta smiled, acknowledging that adjustments are necessary to save the planet, and moved to the sink to brush her teeth where instead of a toothbrush, she found a willow, mangled on one end to expose wood fibre bristles.

Your old toothbrush?” noted her godmother, “Also nylon.”

Where’s the water? asked Greta.

Down the road in the canal,” replied her godmother, ‘Just make sure you avoid water with cholera in it

Why’s there no running water? ”Greta asked, becoming a little peevish.

Well,” said her godmother, who happened to teach engineering at university, “Where do we begin?

There followed a long monologue about how sink valves need elastomer seats and how copper pipes contain copper, which has to be mined and how it’s impossible to make all-electric earth-moving equipment with no gear lubrication or tires and how ore has to be smelted to a make metal, and that’s tough to do with only electricity as a source of heat, and even if you use only electricity, the wires need insulation, which is petroleum-based, and though most of Sweden’s energy is produced in an environmentally friendly way because of hydro and nuclear, if you do a mass and energy balance around the whole system, you still need lots of petroleum products like lubricants and nylon and rubber for tires and asphalt for filling potholes and wax and iPhone plastic and elastic to hold your underwear up while operating a copper smelting furnace and . . .

What’s for breakfast?” interjected Greta, whose head was hurting.

Fresh, range-fed chicken eggs,” replied her godmother. “Raw.”

How so, raw?” inquired Greta.

Well, . . .” And once again, Greta was told about the need for petroleum products like transformer oil and scores of petroleum products essential for producing metals for frying pans and in the end was educated about how you can’t have a petroleum-free world and then cook eggs.

Unless you rip your front fence up and start a fire and carefully cook your egg in an orange peel like you do in Boy Scouts.   Not that you can find oranges in Sweden anymore.

But I want poached eggs like my Aunt Tilda makes,” lamented Greta.

Tilda died this morning,” the godmother explained. “Bacterial pneumonia.

What?!” interjected Greta. “No one dies of bacterial pneumonia! We have penicillin.” 

“Not anymore,” explained godmother:

The production of penicillin requires chemical extraction using isobutyl acetate, which, if you know your organic chemistry, is petroleum-based.

Lots of people are dying, which is problematic because there’s not any easy way of disposing of the bodies since backhoes need hydraulic oil and crematoriums can’t really burn many bodies using as fuel Swedish fences and furniture, which are rapidly disappearing – being used on the black market for roasting eggs and staying warm.

This represents only a fraction of Greta’s day, a day without microphones to exclaim into and a day without much food, and a day without carbon-fibre boats to sail in, but a day that will save the planet. – contributed

Polar ice is growing in size – thank God for global warming

NSIDC: 2020 Polar Ice doing just fine

According to the latest October report from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), the ice locked at Earth’s poles is, overall, GROWING.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow.

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.

Up to 97 per cent of the Great Barrier Reef is in pristine condition – Independent Peter Campion

An independent candidate for the rural seat of Hill (SW Cairns) in October’s state election has harshly criticised a 2008 amendment to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Act of 1975 that gives “wrongologists an escape clause for damage done to farmers by their questionable expertise and advice to government”.

Peter Campion of Tolga, a retired fireman, is a long-term climate change sceptic and energy realist who has been a regular contributor to the Cairns Post’s ‘Letters to the Editor’ column. Mr Campion is standing for Hill against the Katter Party’s Shane Knuth.

Peter Campion, is a repetitive letter writer published in North Queensland newspapers campaigning about the scientific foibles of climate change but is better known as Barnaby Joyce’s new father-in-law.

“The GPRMPA Act came about due to concerns for the Great Barrier Reef, which initially stemmed from early Reef tourism operators’ misunderstandings of natural reef systems and cycles – especially relating to the ‘gardeners of the Reef’, the Crown of Thorns starfish,” he said.

“The GBRMPA Act had been in operation for 33 years before Reef researchers felt the need to have an escape clause inserted.

“To me, that suggests that by 2008 they had realised there was a fair chance they were wrong.”

The amendment that has drawn Mr Campion’s scorn is in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2008, which inserts a “precautionary principle” clause.

“The amendment describes the precautionary principle as ‘… the principle that lack of full scientific certainty should not be used as a reason for postponing a measure to prevent degradation of the environment where there are threats of serious or irreversible environmental damage.’”, Mr Campion said.

“On the basis of this blatantly ridiculous ‘precautionary principle’ all farms , industries, towns, sewage systems, and roads should be closed as they all represent a threat to the environment.

“A better precautionary principle would be the proper Popperian scientific method that automatically assumes all science is only correct until such time as it is proved that it is not – which happens far more often than you’d think.

“It is just horrific to think that these scientists, who completely failed to produce their proof to the recent federal Senate inquiry into the Palaszczuk government’s anti-farmer reef regulations, suspected 12 years ago that their work might not be reliable. Why else would they lobby for an escape clause to give cover for their own malfeasance?” he said.

The scientists at the focus of Mr Campion’s anger, Ian Chubb, Geoff Garrett, and Ove Hoegh-Gulberg, took to the far-left website The Guardian to attack the Senate inquiry as a form of defence of their research. Notably this is the research that Professor Peter Ridd was sacked from JCU for suggesting might be unreliable.

Mr Campion noted, “In their own article they still had to admit that ‘little more than 3% of the coral’ may be negatively affected by water quality issues. That means 97 per cent of the Reef is unaffected, but they still want to impose draconian controls on our food producers.

“This is an outrage. These individuals, and their institutions, are unworthy of any further support from taxpayers and the Palaszczuk government’s anti-farmer Reef regulations must be repealed immediately.”

Nothing new with warming oceans and heatwaves

The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from the Consulate at Bergen, Norway.

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard of temperatures in the Arctic zone.

Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.

Soundings to a depth of 3,100 metres showed the gulf stream still very warm.

Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.

SORRY I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 98 years ago.

Today climate change scientist seem to think it was caused by the Model T Ford emissions or possibly horse and cattle carbon farts.

Heat waves in Australia are nothing new and official records show it was hotter in 1896

What we today call official records started in 1910. If we think this summer has been hot how about a 24-DAY heatwave on Australia’s east coast in January 1896 that saw temperatures climb to 49 degrees and killed 437 people.

The maximum temperature was above 38.9C for over three weeks!

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. The maximum at or above 102 degrees F (38.9°C) for 24 days straight. By Tuesday Jan 14, people were reported falling dead in the streets.

Unable to sleep, people in Brewarrina walked the streets at night for hours, the thermometer recording 109F at midnight. Overnight, the temperature did not fall below 103°F.

On Jan 18 in Wilcannia, five deaths were recorded in one day, the hospitals were overcrowded and reports said that “more deaths are hourly expected”.

By January 24, in Bourke, many businesses had shut down (almost everything bar the hotels). Panic stricken Australians were fleeing to the hills in climate refugee trains.

As reported at the time, the government felt the situation was so serious that to save lives and ease the suffering of its citizens they added cheaper train services.

Muslims, Pacific Islands and Indonesia gifted hundreds of millions from Liberals, but desperate farmers have to borrow to survive

Letter to the Editor

Dear Liberal Party friends

(1) sorry to say that this email below is worse than pathetic – –  losing votes.

(2) Bridget Mackenzie, Agriculture Minister, on 2GB this morning was painfully inadequate to answering Alan Jones’s reasonable questions and facts.

Alan Jones (rightly in my view) demolished the stupidity of the proposed two-year interest-free loans to farmers that then roll over into loans at 3.1% after two years on money that the Govt can get from the Reserve Bank at 0.75%, thus making a profit from struggling farmers!

(3) LET ME SUM UP THIS ScoMo GOVT

  • extra $1,000 million recently announced to the Clean Energy Finance Corporation – this is both unnecessary and crazy – the recent Aust Energy Market Operator report predicts blackouts for NSW and Victoria this summer – but there are NO PROPOSALS for reliable baseload nuclear or coal power stations!
  • Our Foreign Affairs Minister gave $70million to Rohinga Moslems
  • ScoMo promised $500 million to Pacific Islands to help them fight the mythical  monster of climate change
  • This federal Govt gives Islamic Indonesia $1million per day as a gift, of which how much ends up in Swiss Bank accounts of officials?!
  • While it is a good thing to release some Murray-Darling Basin water to assist in growing fodder, may I point out that that will take TIME!
  • BUT we don’t have time — it won’t help to stop Farmers’ cattle and sheep dying of starvation or being shot or sold tomorrow and next week.
  • The claim of 21 water infrastructure projects is false and deceptive — no major dam has been built since 1983 – and NONE IS NOW BEING BUILT – of course there are various proposals and feasibility studies BUT NO ACTUAL DIGGING!!  ZILCH.  NIL ACTUAL CONSTRUCTION HAPPENING.
    NSW water Minister Melinda Pavey recently admitted in a fit of frankness that the best we can hope for is to start digging in 3 years from now!

Greens godfather Bob Brown’s opposition to coal mining helped the LNP win the election

Burning forests to generate electricity is probably the worst green energy stupidity. It destroys forests, creates its own pollutants, is less efficient than coal to harvest, handle and burn and has a low heat value. If all factors are counted, it will take decades of forest regrowth to match the CO2 emissions of burning high-energy coal.

Greens godfather Bob Brown helped the LNP win the election by opposing coal fired power

Most coal-fired power stations are built on a coal field with reserves to last the life of the power station. The coal is mined efficiently, the fuel is of known quality and sizing and efficient repetitive methods are used to extract and prepare the coal and convey it continuously into the power station.

The most infamous wood-burning power station in the world is DRAX in Britain. It burns more wood than UK produces and more than any other station in the world. It gets huge subsidies for felling forests as far away as America, then chipping and drying the wood and transporting pellets across the Atlantic. Every step on the way causes large emissions of CO2, but these are conveniently ignored in the mindless war on coal.

Australia’s greenie godfather, Bob Brown, became famous for stopping construction of green-energy dams in Tasmania. Then he helped the LNP win the recent federal election by opposing coal mining in Queensland’s Galilee Basin. And recently he revealed himself as just another NIMBY (not in my backyard) in opposing a proposed wind power project in his homeland, Tasmania. Why not oppose them everywhere, Bob?

Bob should also look into another green energy abomination – bio-fuels. Surely he does not support burning forest to generate electricity or growing huge cultivated tracts of corn, palm oil or sugar beet and calling them biofuel for motor cars?

If Greens want to reduce life-supporting CO2 (a foolish goal), they should be building houses out of old growth forest, not burning it. Then replant the mature milled trees with young trees that will grow much faster than old trees and burn the sawdust in power plants or use it to make compost.

 

America’s next civil war could start in Oregon very soon: can Trump hold the fort?

from Natural News

“America just one trigger event away from all-out open warfare on the streets”

This story is getting very little coverage in the legacy media for obvious reasons. Just like California, Oregon has gone full authoritarian in trying to force its fake science “climate change” agenda on everyone. Over the last few days, Oregon’s Gov. Kate Brown has ordered the gunpoint rounding up of Republican lawmakers by police in order to force a vote on a climate change “cap and trade” scheme (HB 2020) that only enriches corrupt Democrat insiders.

Can Trump hold the fort? His demise by illegal alien voting fraud will have serious implications for Australia

As BigLeaguePolitics.com reports, the Oregon Three Percenters appear to be getting involved to protect the citizens of Oregon from the authoritarian tyranny of the corrupt Democrats(Australian equivalent is the ALP):

The Oregon Three Percenters, who participated in the armed takeover of a wildlife refuge in 2016, was one of many groups to support the Republican legislators’ defiance. Apparently this, along with support for the legislators by other right-wing groups, was unsettling to law enforcement. The State Capitol was closed Saturday “due to a possible militia threat,” according to a spokesman for Senate President Peter Courtney.

The real threat in Oregon, of course, is the tyrannical governor and her authoritarian Democrat jack-booted thugs (i.e. the Oregon State Police) who are now hunting down Republican lawmakers at gunpoint in order to shove their destructive law through the legislature. As The National Sentinel reports, “Raising the cost of production and doing business (cause) will have predictable effects: Loss of jobs, loss of revenue, higher prices, higher energy costs. And for some in Oregon — farmers, truck drivers, loggers — the law would decimate their industries. And worse, there is no real consensus that human activity is causing the climate to change. In fact, the Left’s predictions of doom and gloom are routinely debunked by reality. In particular, Republicans say that gas prices alone would rise 22 cents a gallon almost immediately, and much more over the long haul.”

Sunshine State Gored

A tribute to Al Gore’s Brisbane visit by Viv Forbes

The Priest of Global Warming

Flew in to earn big fees

He warned of heat waves forming

Unless we grew more trees

Alas for Big Al’s forecast

The weather did not warm

Antarctic winds began to blast

And snowy clouds were formed

So if you’re sick of sunshine

And bored with balmy heat

Just pay Big Al to wine and dine

You’ll soon have frost and sleet.

 

 

Climate change mafioso Al Gore interference in election

ABC should be defunded

by Viv Forbes, Executive Director, the Saltbush Club, Australia.  

The Saltbush Club today called for an enquiry into a last minute intervention by an American politician, Al Gore, into the Australian Election.

The Executive Director of the Saltbush Club, Viv Forbes, said that in such a tight election race, the intervention of someone with the international stature of Al Gore, assisted by the climate activist Australian Broadcasting Commission, could easily change the result of the election.

“The Gore intervention was not subtle – he labelled the LNP government climate policy as ‘not credible’ and taking the country ‘in the wrong direction’.

“Becoming even more partisan, Gore praised the opposition Labor plan ‘as an extremely significant act of leadership on the part of Australia.’

“This carefully timed intervention in a closely fought Australian election by a prominent foreign politician is a blatant attempt to promote a damaging climate agenda already rejected in the USA.

“This surely justifies an inquiry into foreign electoral interference and ABC complicity.”

Bullshitter Bill or Sharia Shorten?

Shorten’s energy crisis in the making for Labor

Robert Gottliebsen’s article, in the ‘Australian’, 11/4/19, may force the many potential buyers of EV’s to proceed with caution:

The danger came home to him, when he met up with an affluent, long-time Melbourne acquaintance who lives in a street where there are six Tesla cars.  If all six proud Electric Vehicle owners  try to charge their EV battery at the same time, the power goes out in the street, because the grid fails – some times, it fails when just three, or four charge at the same time.

You see, our Power Grid is designed to transmit predictable, regular waves of power through it’s wires and transformers.  But… suddenly, we began generating large amounts of power from different directions, and much of this is intermittent and based on less predictable sources, such as wind and sunshine.  So, instead of being regular waves of electrons travelling in one direction, – choppy electron flows hit the transformers, causing greatly increased operating temperatures.

The power grid has insufficient electricity to charge 600,000 electric cars

You don’t have to be very bright to know that most nights, up to 70% of our population habitually switch on the ‘aircon’, & go to the shower, before cooking the evening meal, (often, while the family are watching TV). The majority of these actions occurs somewhere between 5pm & 10pm, and most rely on power from the grid.

In Bill Shorten’s ‘new green world’, there’ll be yet another task – i.e. Recharging the EV battery in 50% of homes, probably for many hours, after dark.

Statistics reveal, Australian households currently use, on average, approx. 20k/Wt per day. By comparison, a full charge for an electric vehicle battery needs about 60k/Wt – That’s THREE times the normal household consumption. Power Bills could treble.

So, the progression from conventional vehicle to an EV involves :

  1. a) Buying the pure-electric vehicle ….let’s say, at least $45,000,
  2. b) Installing a suitable wall-mounted Charger ….let’s say $13,000,
  3. c) Saving up for the annual Energy Bill – let’s say, an extra $3,000 per annum….

And

  1. d) Check that there aren’t many EV’s in your street – or you’ll be wasting your money !

That’s a total cost over $60,000…. (the average family may choke on this).

And,

Don’t expect to trade in your old beast – There’ll be thousands of rusty cars everywhere.

Bill says he expects there will be about 600,000 pure electric vehicles on Australian roads by 2030.  Yet, the Labor/Greens Alliance are committed to gradually close Coal-Fired Power Stations, the source of most reliable, base-load power.

Bill also says fully subsidised Renewables will provide CHEAPER Energy prices. SURE.

What plan does Bill have to DOUBLE Australia’s electricity supply to enable half the population to regularly charge their Electric Vehicle. Well, BILL hasn’t mentioned it.

THAT’S BECAUSE IT’S PURE FANTASY…..Bullshit Bill can only guarantee Energy Chaos.

Bob Brown and rent-a-crowd can expect a warm reception in Clermont

-contributed

Baseball bats, buckets of tar and feathers from battery hens will be in line for 700 anti-coal mine protestors when they arrive in the Central Western Queensland township of Clermont.

Led by failed former Greens leader and Tasmanian Bob Brown, the rent-a-crowd convoy plans to arrive in Clermont on April 28 to rally against the Adani coal mine.

Bob Brown and the anti-coal mining knuckle draggers can expect a warm reception at Clermont.

Emotions are running high in the Central Highlands about ‘Mexicans’ infesting Queensland with their “nonsense of climate change and wrecking the Barrier Reef by coal mining,” according to Rockhampton-based mine supplier Stephan Hall.

“There will be hundreds of miners, contractors, ringers and truckies and people from local towns waiting to give these knuckle draggers a nice reception.

“I have heard of people taking baseball bats and other things to give the unemployed bludgers and their rabble something to remember that coal miners won’t be f….d about by these grubs,” Mr Hall said.

Clermont hoteliers and food suppliers have warned the protestors they are not welcome in Clermont and would not be served any food while in the township.

Mr Hall said the Queensland economy would crash overnight if coal mining was stopped in Central Queensland.

“When the Emerald mine closed the town was broke in a week and the same will happen to Rocky, Mackay and Clermont. Nearly every cattle property around here has a family member who works in a mine and the ringers will give them a big touch up.

“They will leave Queensland covered in tar and feathers. Bob Brown, the Greens, Labor and their poofter mates can go screw themselves not us!” he exclaimed.
