Al Gore causes massive economic damage to Australia

Letter to the Editor

Will Al Gore tell the world when there was a time in history the climate was NOT changing?  We would like to know.

Climate Change is like the Sunrise it has always been there and always will be. His clever twist that small minded non-analytical people swallowed gave him notoriety and great embarrassment to others seeing the amount of gullible people there are.

His should have his visa refused on the grounds of economic terrorism as his nonsense has cost many nations millions they cannot afford and put great hardship on families who cannot afford power bills. Enough stupidity, this man has done more economic damage to our country than any terrorists, his false words have families struggling in extreme hardship, money diverted away from hospitals, health and education that will cause hardship and lost lives in the future.

Greenpeace says it will start civil disruption and an uprising because Shorten lost election

The ‘climate’ hoax

Environmental terrorist, Greenpeace on its Facebook site warns it will start a renewed environmental terrorism campaign in earnest following a predictable defeat for Bill Shorten and the Labor Party at the May 18 election. Time now to ramp up background information about the environmental octopus gripping the Greens and their roots to Nazi Germany, where pagan environmentalism began.

Deindustrialising Greens leader Richard di Natale and Senator Hanson Young are following in the footsteps of the party’s Nazi founders

From the Greenpeace official statement:

“This is not a post we thought we’d have to make.

We’re looking into the eyes of our friends, families and colleagues and seeing them all searching for answers, but only able to ask the same questions:

How? Why? Where do we go from here?

This result flies in the face of all Australians who’ve fought for our climate. For pristine oceans, for clean air, for the thousands of young Australians scared for what their future holds. We demanded they declare an emergency, and they shook a lump of coal in our faces.

So it’s right now, more than ever, that we want to tell you this:

This fight is not over, and none of us are going anywhere.

Tonight we learned something profound, something that changes the ballgame. Something that will require every one of us to stand up and take action in a way we’ve never before.

The system is broken. And as long our politics are shackled to the coal industry and vested interest, we’ll never fix it.

It’s time to change the game. It’s time to be disruptive. It’s time to take the power back.

If our government won’t declare a climate emergency, we’ll declare an uprising.

Last week Laura, one of the brave climbers who scaled the Sydney Harbour Bridge, said that that we can’t afford to rest on our laurels amidst this climate emergency. She put her body on the line and promised us that she’d never give up. And we shouldn’t either.

Now is not the time to leave. Now is the time to hold each other close, to pick each other up, and to stand up and fight.

If the climate-wreckers in the Coalition think we’re going to go away quietly, they’ve got another thing coming.

If Scott Morrison thinks he’s won the war on coal, he’s got another thing coming.

If anyone thinks the fight for our planet is over, they’ve got another thing coming.

We’ll be fighting back. Harder than we ever have before.

Now a new fight begins.”

Our Demands

1. Stop the Adani coal mine

2. No new coal, oil and gas projects

3. 100% renewable energy by 2030

Greenpeace linked to the ‘School Strike4Climate’ movement

According to the “School Strike 4 Climate Australia” website, their network is student-led, decentralised and grassroots. But it doesn’t take a researcher long to discover this network is controlled top down, and funded, by the City of London-centred financial oligarchy. Two mobile numbers are listed as contacts for media inquiries. Are they for school students—Year 12 student leaders perhaps? No! A quick internet search shows that they link to Charlie Wood and Alex Fuller.

Wood is Australian Campaigns Director of 350.org, an environmentalist activist organisation with a presence in 188 countries. It had a US$16.8 million total revenue in 2017, and public records show wealthy foundations such as the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the George Soros-funded Tides Foundation have collectively funnelled in tens of millions of dollars to 350.org since its founding in 2007.

The CEO of 350.org in Australia, Blair Palese, was a board member of Greenpeace Australia Pacific. Greenpeace has collectively received billions of dollars from establishment-run foundations such as the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Tides Foundation, and the Schmidt Family Foundation established by former Google CEO Eric Schmidt. The late Lord Peter Melchett, heir to the Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) fortune, was executive director of Greenpeace UK.

Fuller is Communications Manager of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC), which had a total income of more than $2.8 million in 2017 alone. Curiously, the AYCC Facebook page links to the Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) and GetUp. Both have been establishment fronts from their inception.

The ACF was established by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in 1964; its patron was the Governor-General, and its Chairman of the Benefactors and National Sponsors Committee—i.e. chief fundraiser– Sir Maurice Mawby, managing director of Conzinc Riotinto Australia (CRA, later Rio Tinto). The two co-founders of GetUp, Harvard graduates Jeremy Heimans and David Madden, both worked for the Soros-funded MoveOn.org in the USA. Among GetUp’s founding board members were John Hewson, former Macquarie Bank executive director and Liberal Party leader; and Don Mercer, former ANZ Bank CEO.– from CEC

Coal and climate change drain the swamp of Labor politicians

by Jim O’Toole, Townsville bureau

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is reeling after the Labor Party lost every federal seat north of Brisbane at last week’s election. Fed-up voters elected only one ALP senator for Queensland.

In a fleeting visit to Cairns on Friday to shore up its four state ALP MP’s, the Premier allocated just 15 minutes for each one to air their grievances.

Comrade Premier Palaszczuk discovered on Monday morning after the federal election that coal was not so bad after all

Pundits claim stalling on the Adani mine approvals and scaremongering over fictitious ‘climate’ change’ by the Labor Party turned voters away in droves from their federal candidates.

Even the hard-nosed, anti-coal mining Deputy Premier Jackie Trad joined with the Premier’s change of heart and discovered on Monday morning after the election that coal was all right after all.

These two hypocrites will battle to hold seats north of Brisbane at the next state election and rightly so as every city and all regions north of the Sunshine Coast, except the coal mining depot of Mackay are experiencing severe economic downturns.

Katters Australian Party warned during the federal campaign that every Labor- held state seat north of Rockhampton would be contested by its candidates, with some already campaigning in the regions.

Bob Katter’s spectacular result in the sprawling electorate of Kennedy left the LNP and ALP candidates speechless after he increased his margin by 2.5 points to 65 per cent easily retaining the vast cane, cattle, mining and tourism region.

Bob Katter has warned the Queensland Premier due to her alliance with the de-industrialising Greens she is likely to lose all Labor-held state seats north of Rockhampton

Although recording substantial results without spectacular numbers were KAP’s five other federal candidates who were bypassed by panicked voters in an effort to keep out the Labor Party.

Party polling officials in the hotly contested, marginal seat of Leichardt which extends to the PNG border some 1500 klms to the north of Cairns, were warned by Voting Australia to be on the lookout for voting fraud.

In the last federal election 18,000 voters across the nation were found by the Australian Electoral Commission to have recorded more than one vote.

No action was taken by the AEC against this fraud.

Just a small percentage of these dud votes would have enabled Liberal Party candidate and incumbent member Warren Entsch to get across the line.

In spite of numerous requests from voters to Prime Minister Scott Morrison prior to the election to ensure the AEC implemented the recommendations of the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters for compulsory identification, the AEC confirmed no ID requirements were enforced at polling booths.

 

Labor/Greens cow fart bags should be deflated by voters

Keep voting for the major parties and watching or listening to the ABC and this is what you will get

Bob Brown, Queensland Labor and the ABC want to save the planet with these cow fart bags.

Queensland has about 9 million cattle. Will Bob Brown, Bill Shorten and the Qld Deputy Premier Jackie Trad go west to fit the bags? Naturally the cattle producer would have to buy them first.

Jackie ‘Mad’ Trad had better slip into her jeans, buy an Akubra and get day insurance because she is heading off to a ‘bag fitting’ rodeo event.

There could be a new rodeo event named ‘bag fitting.’

Who empties them when they are filled with gas? What happens when a cow walks under a prickly acacia tree and the bag gets punctured. Got any patches Jackie or do you take the cow to Beaurepaires?

A vote for the major partiers in the next state election will perpetuate this madness.

Gay voters favoured Warren’s seat

by Robert J Lee

Incredibly the perennial Warren Entsch has managed to hang onto the seat of Leichardt defeating Labor’s gay candidate Elida Faith, a former Centrelink worker.

Liberal Warren was champion of the same sex marriage bill which passed through parliament last year after a dodgy postal plebiscite which saw 248,000 envelopes returned to the ABS marked ‘return to sender, not known at this address.’

“I flogged that gay candidate from the ALP by this much.” With Liberal on 53.6% and ALP at 46.4% two party preferred, Warren has never been known to exaggerate

These fictitious entries which originated from the roll remain on it. As a result you may use your imagination as to the election outcome in marginal seats, just like Warren’s.

In Leichardt, the Christopher Skase Utopia of Port Douglas is Queensland’s significant gay garrison and its foot soldiers to a man and woman (woops, fluid genderless persons) supported Warren.

Cairns has a reputation nationally and internationally as the ‘gay capital’ of Queensland so Warren was on safe ground taking the multitude of gays under his arm.

Ditto for Cairns northern suburbs such as Palm Cove which has a large ‘fluid’ population.

Similar to the result in many other electorates across Australia fearful voters simply wanted to reject the ABC/ALP/Green climate change rubbish and voted with their feet, ignoring the independents.

Fortunately only a few Liberal MP’s believe the UN’s global warming or climate change agenda which has been designed through the Paris Agreement on Climate to transfer even more wealth from developed nations to black juntas in Africa.

The blacklisting of coal by the ABC/ALP/Greens triumvirate and the potential loss of franking credits for several million retirees was the hapless Shorten’s Achilles heel.

As re-elected Member for Dickson(north of Brisbane) the much maligned Liberal Peter Dutton said it was the best help anyone could get after the Shorten-aligned GetUp doorknocked his electorate vigorously trying to slander his reputation.

 

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.”

Ten reasons to exit Paris climate agreement

by Viv Forbes, science writer

It is urgent that all Australian politicians understand the dangers in the Paris Climate Agreement. Here are TEN REASONS to EXIT PARIS NOW:

  1. The science is NOT settled – hundreds of scientists in Australia and thousands more throughout the world reject the theory that human production of carbon dioxide is driving dangerous global warming. And the 102 computerised climate models have always predicted more warming than has occurred. (They got it right once, 39 years ago.)

New generation coal fired power stations urgently needed to provide a reliable power supply. Australia shuts them down while the world is building many hundreds using our coal

  1. 2.There is no unusual global warming. Since the last ice age ended there have been warm eras hotter than today’s modern warming – the warm peaks are getting lower, not higher. Climate has always changed in response to forces far greater than human activities. The endless procession of man-made scare campaigns about cooling, warming, ice melting, sea levels, ocean acidity, cyclones and droughts have all proved false.
  2. 3. Carbon dioxide is NOT a pollutant – it is an invisible natural gas that supplies the whole food chain. More carbon dioxide is beneficial to the biosphere – forests, grasses and crops grow better thus benefitting all animal life that relies on plants.
  3. The populous world nations are unlikely to curb their CO2 emissions – China, India, Russia, Brazil, USA, Japan, SE Asia, Indonesia, Africa and the Arab world will ignore Paris limits.
  4. Despite 20 years of favourable promotion, subsidies, taxes, targets and propaganda the contribution of the intermittent energy producers (wind and solar) to world energy supplies is trivial – about 3% (see if you can find “solar” in the graph below.)
  5. Despite 20 years of favourable promotion, subsidies, taxes, targets and propaganda the contribution of the intermittent energy producers (wind and solar) to world energy supplies is trivial – about 3% (see if you can find “solar” in the graph below.)
  6. Australian energy policies, taxes and targets are making electricity more costly and less reliable, hurting consumers and driving industry off-shore. And once they have ruined electricity and coal their next targets will be agriculture and motorists.7
  7. With no nuclear power, no geothermal power, limited hydro potential and increasing barriers to gas exploration, Australia has few options except coal for cheap reliable grid power, and oil products for transport.8
  8. With a huge continent, a small population and heavy reliance on exports, each Australian will be heavily penalised by the Paris Agreement for the emissions associated with exports consumed by others.9
  9. Compliance with the Paris Agreement will destroy industries and jobs, encourage bureaucracy and transfer controls and money to affiliates of the United Nations
  10. Should the world experience even modest cooling in the decades ahead Australia will urgently need increased supply of reliable power for homes and industry and the global atmosphere will need more carbon dioxide plant food.

 

Radiant heat and gravity control our world, not CO2

The Saltbush Club today announced the formation of the “Saltbush Solar Activity Watch” led by Mr David Archibald.


The Executive Director of Saltbush, Mr Viv Forbes, said it was obvious to everyone except school teachers, the ABC and ALP, the Greens and the leaders of CSIRO that the sun is the main driver of weather and climate on Earth.

“This giant ball of nuclear power in the sky beams solar radiation and exerts gravitational force on everything on earth,” Mr Forbes said.

“These two solar forces, radiant heat and gravity, control our world.

“Radiant heat on an inclined rotating Earth drives the winds and the ocean currents, produces rain and snow, powers cyclones and storms, and affects the cloud-forming cosmic radiation that hits the earth.

“Gravitational forces from the sun, the moon and other planets create atmospheric tides that also affect weather. They also create tides in the oceans and ground waters as well as “Earth Tides” in crustal rocks that affect the timing of Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

“The ancient Greeks and Egyptians, South African water engineers and Australia’s most famous weather forecaster, Inigo Jones, all knew that the sun was a key factor in weather/rainfall cycles. Most of the world’s calendars are based on movements in the solar system, and ancient monuments from Stonehenge, to the Pyramids, to the Americas are testament to the pervasive influence of sun and planets in human history.

“Solar cycles have been observed for over 2,000 years and sunspots have been recorded in detail since the invention of the telescope in 1610. This record shows that cold periods like the Little Ice Age have coincided with periods of low sunspot numbers.

“David Archibald’s analysis of solar activity suggests that the sun has driven a warming phase since about 1900 but probably entered a new cooling phase about 2006.

“A new cooling era would play havoc with world food supply, and those who rely on unreliable wind/solar energy will regret their choices.

“With reckless bravado, foolish Western politicians and their minions have placed all of our bets on an old fading gelding called “Global Warming”. They have not noticed a vigorous white stallion, “Global Cooling” which is racing down the straight.

“Even a small cooling will reduce world food supply in three ways.

“Firstly, any reduction in surface temperature will reduce crop growth and growing season in all sub-polar regions.

“Secondly, reduced solar radiation will reduce evaporation from the oceans and must reduce precipitation on land.

“And, worst of all, cooling surface temperature on the oceans will cause oceans to absorb more carbon dioxide plant food, so plant/crop growth will be lower than in today’s warm well-fertilised atmosphere.

“Carbon dioxide has never driven world climate and will play an even smaller part in future.”

Present heatwaves not as hot as 1828 or 1896

Where are the CO2 haters?

Letter to the editor

Dear Editor

 Australia faces Christmas heatwave with record temperature up to 47C forecast.

 Sadly another baloney forecast.

 In 1915 the Murray River dried up—it has never done that since.

Explorer, Charles Sturt’s Records show in 1828 it was a blistering 53.9 °C. 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—long before industrialisation.

Climate change disciples are invited to check the records. Where were the greenhoax gases and excessive Carbon Dioxide in 1896?

The Great Drought, and subsequent Global Famine between 1875 and 1878, ravaged India, China and parts of Africa and South America, killed an estimated 50 Million people.

Was that climate change or not?

 No, it couldn’t have been because it was natural climatic variation long before industrialisation.

Sincerely

 G J May

Poland climatefest dumps several million tonnes of CO2 into atmosphere aiding plant growth

by Viv Forbes, science writer

$500M Climate Carnival Concludes.

COP 24 just concluded in Poland. Nearly 23,000 climate saviours attended this 24th annual climate carnival.

Every year, plane-loads of concerned busybodies fly to some interesting new location to spend tax dollars on a well-fed 12 day holiday. They concoct plans to ration and tax the energy used by real workers, farmers and families back home.

Few delegates arrived by bicycle or solar-powered plane – a fleet of at least 100 commercial, private and charter aircraft brought them at a cost estimated at US$57M. When the costs of hotels, ground transport, food, entertainment, air conditioning and office services are added, the bill is likely to top $500 M.

Australian taxpayers supported 46 junketeers. Now these Chicken Littles are back home spreading climate scare stories and lecturing locals to not overspend on Christmas presents.

There is a bright side – all that carbon dioxide emitted by planes, cars, buses, heaters, stoves, beer, champagne and Poland’s coal-fired power stations will help global plant growth.

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.

Saltbush Club warns Morrison Poland climatefest is a ‘war on west’

Australia should COP-OUT of COP-24.


by Viv Forbes,  science writer

Secretary of the Saltbush Club

The growing Saltbush Climate Lobby has called on PM Morrison to make no new commitments at the COP24 climate-fest to be held in Poland in a few days.

 Australians no longer trust what politicians and officials are doing behind closed doors far from home.

Nothing of benefit to Australian consumers, tax payers or business will come out of COP24. It will just extend the UN’s war on our cheap, reliable hydro-carbon fuels and the backbone industries that rely on them – primary industries, transport, processing and manufacturing.

It is effectively a ‘War on the West’.

Australia is particularly vulnerable with no nuclear power, no geothermal power and limited hydropower. This war on reliable hydro-carbon fuels and the promotion of unreliable wind and solar power will increasingly deny our industries and consumers cheap reliable power.

There is no justification for the War on carbon dioxide – there is no proof that CO2 drives global temperature and Earth’s climate cannot be tweaked by erecting windmills or putting taxes on carbon dioxide.

COP24 will descend into a grab for cash, and Australia is one of those pullets they plan to pluck.
“Believing carbon dioxide is the planet’s climate control knob is pretty close to believing in magic.”
