Senator Malcolm Roberts told a meeting of Lakeland residents on Sunday he was surprised the developers of a massive windfarm project would have advised them there was no government requirement to conduct public notification or consider public submissions.
The One Nation Senator visited Lakeland at the request of landowner Joy Marriott, one of the closest neighbours to be affected by 35 towers, up to 240 metres high.
In a letter from the proponents, Windlab, residents were told the Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning is currently assessing the development application for the wind farm.
“They have confirmed with us that there is no requirement to conduct public notification or consider public submissions. However, you can still make a submission by writing to the Department ,”wrote spokesman, Joshua Petrass.
Ms Marriott said the company was not required to undertake an Environmental Impact Study, “yet when a Lakeland business applied to extend its accommodation facilities the council insisted on a very strict application process that involved an EIS and planning that will cost a lot of money.
“I had to do a similar process when I started my now nearly completed caravan park and it cost a lot of money, so I can’t see how a southern developer can come to Lakeland with a $200 million wind farm and not do an EIS or take any notice of objections.”
Wind-generated power did not receive top marks from Senator Roberts. He warned that the huge increase in power prices across the State was caused in part by subsidised renewable power.
A mining engineer by profession, Senator Roberts warned that wind power was not all it was made out to be.
“My research shows that wind power destroys the security of electricity supply because it is asynchronous (not occurring at the same time) and it destabilises electricity supply,” Senator Roberts explained.
“It relies on subsidies from taxpayers and can be harmful to physical and mental health as well as harm the environment, but it can also destroy property values.
“Wind towers are not aesthetically pleasant, but worst of all wind farms are based on a lie-Australian industry is not affecting the global climate.”
In the letter, Mr Petrass said Windlab seeks to partner with the community to bring economic development and investment in renewable energy.

I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called “Organizing for Action”, (OFA) a 30,000 strong working group
to disrupt everything that our current president is trying to do.
This goes against our Democracy, it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the process established over 200 years ago.
If this is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws? If this does not scare you, then we are in worse trouble than you know.
It is explained below. Do your part, read it and at least pass this on so others will know what we are up against. We are losing our country and we are so compliant. We are becoming a “PERFECT TARGET” for our enemy!
Article from the New York Post…….
If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America.
The ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration’s top dogs over to an organization called Organizing for Action (OFA).
OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the resistance we are seeing across America, and politically active courts are providing the leverage for this revolution. OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for “progressive” change. Issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexual equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform. OFA members were propped up by the ex-president’s message from the shadows: “Organizing is the building block of everything great we’ve accomplished.
Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities-and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines…Commit to this work in 2016 and beyond.”
OFA’s website says it obtained its “digital” assets from the ex-president’s re-election effort and that he inspired the movement. In short, it’s the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic. AMERICA
Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says OFA will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president “will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.”
Sperry writes that the ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the incoming administration through a network of non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide.
OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate OFA has 32,525 volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their home/ office near the White House. Think about how this work, for example: Trump issues an immigration executive order; OFA signals for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups; ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in jurisdictions where activist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings; the leftist media springs to action; the twitter sphere lights up with social media; violence follows- all emanating from the ex-president’s signal that he is heartened by the protests.
If Barack Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8 years he was in office, it appears his future plans are to destroy the foundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241 years. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/_Organizing_for_Action

The Secretary of Clexit, Viv Forbes, said that all nations will suffer from the destructive energy policies being promoted in the UN’s war on cheap, reliable hydro-carbon fuels and the backbone industries that rely on them – mining and smelting, farming, fishing, forestry, processing and manufacturing.
He was supported by Professor Will Happer, Professor of Physics at Princeton University who said today:
“Americans never felt compelled to sign up to international folly in the past. I hope the United States once again shows the common sense of its people and walks away from the Paris Agreement.”
Dr Willie Soon of Clexit USA, an astro-physicist and climate author, added:
“There is no free energy in the real world. All world leaders, not only President Trump, should stop promoting the empty game of energy poverty and deaths.”
Dr Tim Ball, the Regional Director of Clexit Canada, said:
“President Trump knows he must keep the promises made at his public rallies. For example, he made the commitment to get out of Paris in his Harrisburg Pennsylvania speech: https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4667776/president-trump-remarks-harrisburg-pennsylvania
“This includes deals like the one-sided Paris Climate Accord, where the United States pays billions of dollars while China, Russia and India have contributed nothing and will contribute nothing.”
Mr Forbes said that the war on natural hydro-carbon fuels is denying the poorest people and nations of the world the chance of better paying jobs, cheaper energy and more abundant food.
“There is no justification for the War on carbon dioxide – CO2 does not drive global temperature and Earth’s climate cannot be tweaked by erecting windmills or putting taxes on carbon dioxide. CO2 is naturally sequestered by oceans and the biosphere. Burning natural hydrocarbons merely recycles Earth’s carbonaceous nutrients vital to all life – already world food production and global forests have benefitted from the small increases in carbon dioxide plant food in Earth’s atmosphere. See: World forests just grew 9%: http://mailchi.mp/thegwpf/good-news-planet-earth-covered-in-much-more-forest-than-thought?e=b4fa0c6183
“President Trump promised to exit the Paris Treaty, but he also needs to de-fund and exit all UN climate control bureaucracies.
“Tom Harris of the Canadian-based International Climate Science Coalition has said that the President needs to dig up the roots of Paris – the UN Framework on Climate Change signed by President H. W. Bush and others in Rio in 1992. See: http://dailycaller.com/2017/05/08/killing-the-paris-agreement-is-not-enough/
“The root mass of every weed is as big as its branches. Everyone knows that pruning weeds just encourages more growth from the energised roots. All people who value freedom and prosperity must eradicate the UN Climate weeds, roots and all.
“Clexit members around the world look to President Trump to add his weight to the growing momentum to withdraw from the Paris Climate Treaty and the Rio UN FCCC, and to de-fund all bodies responsible for planting these climate industry weeds.”(Apologies to those who may oppose other policies of Donald Trump, but on climate and energy he is spot on and deserves support.)
Geo-engineering heating oceans and killing coral reefs
by Robert J Lee in Cairns
Climatologists are baffled why no cyclones have formed in the Far North so far this year, claiming it to be “unusual.”
Weather forecaster Tamika Tihema told the Cairns Post there was nothing on the radar to suggest things might change any time soon.
Not a single cyclonic system had formed in the eastern region which takes in both the Coral Sea and the Gulf of Carpentaria.
Ms Tihema said there had never been a year since records were kept when a cyclone did not form in the eastern region, although there was time yet.
Unfortunately the climatologists and the weather bureau have not factored in the increased chemtrail spraying activities over Cairns and the Tablelands ten days ago.
Chemtrail observers and analysts say the high altitude application of various chemical cocktails have been used by government for decades to alter weather patterns.
Cairns has had less than a normal wet season so far leaving ratepayers facing water restrictions early in the year.
Tablelands farm irrigators, having Tinaroo Dam as their main water supply, will soon face tighter restrictions with the dam capacity now at 43 per cent.
Cairns News is left wondering if irrigators and homeowners will ever face up to the fact that man made climate interference is not and has never been influenced by carbon dioxide.
It has been caused by decades of high-atmosphere chemical dispersion using specially adapted aircraft, not done by the Air Force, according to then Air Chief Marshall Angus Houston.
In a letter to a reader, Air Chief Marshall Houston denied the Royal Australian Air Force was using any of its aircraft to apply chemicals.
In what could have been the most pertinent point missing from his letter, he did not deny high altitude chemical spraying actually occurred.
Editor: This comment below from a researcher working at a prominent university explains how geo-engineering affects the climate and thus has contributed towards coral bleaching events on the Great Barrier Reef. Coral bleaching is nothing new. It was first recorded in the late 1800’s but the evidence shows coral recovers quite well with
nature’s wonderful regeneration process:
Comment: http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org is a credible site. Chemtrails is not the correct term to use. It is geoengineering, using a technique called Solar Radiation Management (SRM). There are many parts to this geoengineering story. It is modifying weather patterns all over the world and destroying the earths’ biosphere. What we are not being told is this is a military operation, the aerosol spraying consists of Barium, Strontium, Aluminium and Coal Ash. These are conductive materials (which also heat up the atmosphere) used to enhance the microwave technology – HAARP, Nexrad/Doppler, SBX electromagnetic operations.
Focus of the Media is on the freezing temperatures in the USA and Europe. This is because the northern Jet Stream has been manipulated further south from the Artic. The Artic has had record high temperatures, (as the Antarctic) causing massive ice melting events. The Artic permafrost is melting at an alarming rate causing massive amounts of trapped methane to be released into the atmosphere. Methane is far more deadly than CO2. CO2 is not the danger it is the methane. The methane releases are destabilizing the earthquake zone known as the Gakkel Ridge. The earthquakes along this ridge are causing more methane releases.
Once the ice melts at the Artic, known as a blue ocean event, the water will then be absorbing all the heat and the earth’s temperatures will rise rapidly.
Mass deaths of wildlife and sea life occur daily, the numbers are in the millions! Look up http://www.end-times-prophechy.org/animal-deaths-birds-fish-and-times.html Although this is a religious site the mass deaths are valid information – verified with links to the articles worldwide with records going back to 2011.
No one mentions the mass tree die offs world wide. Extensive world mapping is available on the internet, just look up mass tree die-offs.
Mass coral reef die-offs world wide also.
Fukushima plays a massive role in the destruction of the world ‘s oceans and atmosphere. It is a Nuclear War without a War. Radioactive water is pouring into the oceans, they do not have the technology to cap the damaged fuel rods. There are high levels of cesium-137, Iodine-131 and Strontium-90 in the oceans and in fish tested in Canada. Radioactive fish are filled with bloody, cancerous tumours and sea lions that have died tested positive for Leukemia. 210 quadrillion becauerels of cesium-137 has been released into the atmosphere and more daily. There are no safe levels of radiation exposure.
Letter to the editor
by Viv Forbes
There was a time when true environmentalists strove to protect wild things. Now the green shirts have become enemies of the environment by pushing green energy and demonising the building blocks of life – carbon and carbon dioxide.
Wind turbines and their cobweb of connecting roads and transmission lines have destroyed native trees and grasses, scarred and uglified wild hilltops, and littered continental shelves with naval and aerial obstacles. They create wind and rain shadows and decimate resident and migratory birds and bats.
Industrial-scale solar is no better, stealing sunlight from every plant that tries to live in the shadow of the panels. Solar-thermal arrays have the additional trick of roasting any birds, bats and insects which fly through their focussed rays of heat.
These green energy toys produce piddling amounts of unreliable weather-dependent energy at great economic and environmental cost.
Greens also promoted diesel to replace cleaner petrol in vehicles. Thank them for more urban pollution.
Their promotion of ethanol and bio-diesel has caused the widespread conversion of cropland and clearing of natural vegetation and forests to grow industrial crops like corn and palm oil. This has also reduced food supplies, increased food prices and forced some poor people to poach in parklands.
And the stupid promotion of burning wood for power and home heating has taken some cities back sixty-five years to the era of London smogs. Forests are again being cleared and wood smoke is again choking urban communities.
None of these expensive and destructive activities will have any measurable or beneficial effect on global temperature.
What is the real agenda?
Climate Cargo Cult Circles the Pacific
By Viv Forbes
The World Economic Forum in 2015 had a prophetic vision that unless the world mends its wicked ways “global warming will become catastrophic and irreversible”.
In July 2016 the US Secretary of State, John Kerry, claimed that global warming was as dangerous to the world as Islamic terrorism.
At the recent G20 summit in China, the world leader of the Global Warming Religion, Ban Ki-moon, canonised two new cardinals – Cardinal Obama (who seeks political sainthood in his after-life), and Cardinal Xi Jinping (who seeks to crucify western industry on the climate cross). Both signed the Paris Pledge.
Then at the ASEAN Economic Forum, ordained Minister Turnbull of Australia joined worshippers to pray for a Saviour from Global Warming.
Global warming to hit Asia hardest – “Hundreds of millions of people are likely to lose their homes as flooding, famine and rising sea levels sweep the region.”
Finally, at the Pacific Island Forum in Vanuatu last week, the Global Warming service commenced with a rousing rendition of the hymn “Repent and Pay, or the Seas will Devour Us”.
As a sign of his devotion, Australia’s Global Warming Minister Turnbull dropped a cool $80M into the Global Warming Collection Plate. Islanders who truly believe will now receive total donations of A$300M from the pious Australian government.
John Kerry was right – this new Global Warming religion is spreading faster than radical Islam. It is the new Cargo Cult.
Respected journalist Miranda Devine published the article below October 4, 2015, throws engineered evidence supporting taxpayer funded environmentalist empires selling global warming/ CO2 doomsday/climate change Armageddon to instigate damage control protection of their gravy train.
Dr David Evans makes this statement in the video below that is a must view for concerned Australians – “Official climate science, which is funded and directed entirely by government, promotes a theory that is based on a guess about moist air that is now a known falsehood. Governments gleefully accept their advice, because the only way to curb emissions are to impose taxes and extend government control over all energy use. And to curb emissions on a world scale might even lead to world government — how exciting for the political class!”

A MATHEMATICAL discovery by Perth-based electrical engineer Dr David Evans may change everything about the climate debate, on the eve of the UN climate change conference in Paris next month.
A former climate modeller for the Government’s Australian Greenhouse Office, with six degrees in applied mathematics, Dr Evans has unpacked the architecture of the basic climate model which underpins all climate science.
He has found that, while the underlying physics of the model is correct, it had been applied incorrectly.
He has fixed two errors and the new corrected model finds the climate’s sensitivity to carbon dioxide (CO2) is much lower than was thought.
It turns out the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has over-estimated future global warming by as much as 10 times, he says.
“Yes, CO2 has an effect, but it’s about a fifth or tenth of what the IPCC says it is. CO2 is not driving the climate; it caused less than 20 per cent of the global warming in the last few decades”.
Dr Evans says his discovery “ought to change the world”.
“But the political obstacles are massive,” he said.
His discovery explains why none of the climate models used by the IPCC reflect the evidence of recorded temperatures. The models have failed to predict the pause in global warming which has been going on for 18 years and counting.
“The model architecture was wrong,” he says. “Carbon dioxide causes only minor warming. The climate is largely driven by factors outside our control.”
There is another problem with the original climate model, which has been around since 1896.
While climate scientists have been predicting since the 1990s that changes in temperature would follow changes in carbon dioxide, the records over the past half million years show that not to be the case.
So, the new improved climate model shows CO2 is not the culprit in recent global warming. But what is?
Dr Evans has a theory: solar activity. What he calls “albedo modulation”, the waxing and waning of reflected radiation from the Sun, is the likely cause of global warming.
He predicts global temperatures, which have plateaued, will begin to cool significantly, beginning between 2017 and 2021. The cooling will be about 0.3C in the 2020s. Some scientists have even forecast a mini ice age in the 2030s.
If Dr Evans is correct, then he has proven the theory on carbon dioxide wrong and blown a hole in climate alarmism. He will have explained why the doomsday predictions of climate scientists aren’t reflected in the actual temperatures.
Dr David Evans, who says climate model architecture is wrong, with wife Jo Nova, Picture: australianclimatemadness.com
“It took me years to figure this out, but finally there is a potential resolution between the insistence of the climate scientists that CO2 is a big problem, and the empirical evidence that it doesn’t have nearly as much effect as they say.”
Dr Evans is an expert in Fourier analysis and digital signal processing, with a PhD, and two Masters degrees from Stanford University in electrical engineering, a Bachelor of Engineering (for which he won the University medal), Bachelor of Science, and Masters in Applied Maths from the University of Sydney.
He has been summarising his results in a series of blog posts on his wife Jo Nova’s blog for climate sceptics.
He is about half way through his series, with blog post 8, “Applying the Stefan-Boltzmann Law to Earth”, published on Friday.
When it is completed his work will be published as two scientific papers. Both papers are undergoing peer review.
“It’s a new paradigm,” he says. “It has several new ideas for people to get used to.”
Unable to find any peer review for Dr Evans findings does not dismiss those finding. It does however keep the gate wide open for environment engineers and their loyal supporters of the gravy train environmental express.
Further, peer review factor is the current tool of the loony greens which is understandable when they develop climate change doom reports having it endorsed only by capitulating peer review.

The Australian open cut mining industry will soon face an avalanche of medical claims stemming from their policies of forcing workers to cover up their bodies almost 100 per cent to lock out healthy sunlight.
The slip, slop, slap sunburn cream campaign has caused many different health problems according to several scientific studies. By blocking healthy sunlight, necessary for life, sunscreen has caused skin cancers, blood disorders and melanoma.
UVB filters, or cinnamates, such as cinoxate, octocrylene and octyl methoxycinnamate (OMC) work by absorbing UVB light, deflecting radiation from the skin.
However, they are common skin irritants and a study published in the New Scientist found cinnamates can cause some cells to die prematurely.
The Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority tested mouse skin and found that half the cells died after contact with a weak dose of OMC, while shining a lamp on the impregnated cells, to simulate sunshine, made the chemical twice as toxic.
No tests have been undertaken on human skin, but these results imply OMC could be toxic, especially if left on the skin for long periods of time.
Vitamin D Deficiency Widespread A clinical review paper published in the British Medical Journal is warning the public that widespread vitamin D deficiency is resurrecting the once-
obsolete disease called rickets.
According to Professor Simon Pearce and Dr. Tim Cheetham, authors of the paper, people are getting far too little sunlight exposure, which is necessary for the body to produce adequate levels of vitamin D. Nowadays, children spend most of their time indoors staring at computer and television screens rather than playing outside in the sunlight.
On the rare occasion that they venture outside, zealous parents are quick to apply UV-blocking sunscreen that prevents the sun’s useful UVB rays from penetrating the skin and producing vitamin D. The result is an epidemic of vitamin D deficiency, leading toillness and disease.
Rickets, a disease in which a person’s bones do not properly develop and harden, results when a person is getting too little vitamin D and calcium. The U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for vitamin D however, is a mere 400 IU.
To put this amount into perspective, however, exposure to the summer sun for about 20 minutes is enough to produce up to 20,000 IU of vitamin D in the body. Yet the fact that children are beginning to develop rickets suggests that they are not even getting 400 IU per day, an amount that should be relatively easy to attain through a few minutes in the sun every day. In the U.K., there are several hundred cases of rickets reported every year.
According to statistics, more than 50 percent of the adult population in the U.K. is deficient in vitamin D as well. During the winter and spring months, more than 15 percent experience severe deficiency. Researchers suggest that people with darker skin pigmentation are at a higher risk for rickets because they do not assimilate vitamin D from the sun’s UVB rays as easily as those with lighter skin.

Decades of detritus accumulated under the forest canopy forming two metre thick beds of tinder have caused utter devastation across large areas of once pristine forest in Tasmania.
Uncontrollable wildfires in January wiped out 38,000 acres of forest ecosystems in the Central Plateau that once attracted many thousands of bushwalkers and tourists every year.
The State Government has not yet revealed the magnitude of other devastated areas in World Heritage and forestry.
Unique alpine flora including pencil pines, king billy pines and cushion plants, some more than 1,000 years old have been lost forever.
Wilderness photographer and bushwalker Dan Broun has returned from the Central Plateau. He told the ABC he walked four hours into the bushfire affected areas just after the fires.
“The scene is complete and utter devastation. There is kilometres of burnt ground, everything is dead,” he said.
He said small pockets of areas protected by rock escaped the fire.
“I also witnessed devastated wildlife; burnt wallabies, dead wombats and the like,” said Mr Broun.
Fire ecologist David Bowman said the fires burning in Tasmania were a sign of climate change.
However the so-called experts prefer to ignore the decades of dried matter that has built up on the forest floor, due to a lack of hazard reduction burn offs.
Until the late 1800’s, the Aborigines burnt these areas from time to time in a dry season creating a suitable environment for animals and understorey regrowth, preventing any sizeable fuel load from covering the forest floor.
The former leader of the Greens, Tasmanian Bob Brown can be directly blamed for this conflagration because the Greens campaigned long and hard to halt all sustainable forestry harvesting, have all sensible land managers kicked out and to lock up vast forests much to the detriment of the ecology.
