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.

Get rid of foreign green snakes in the grass

by Viv Forbes science writer

Poor policies are taking Australia into tough times.

There are four priorities for the coming election.

Firstly: Decimate the Foreign Green Snakes in the Grass.
The climate/emissions obsession started with unelected foreigners in the UN and the IPCC who drafted deep green agendas to be imposed via elected Federal, State and Local governments. Australia must immediately withdraw from the Lima/Paris/Kyoto agreements, reject the 2030 Agenda, and repeal all the green tape they spawned. This costly mess creates no measurable climate or environmental benefits.

https://saltbushclub.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/four-priorities.pdf

Secondly: Build more Reliable Base-Load Power Stations.
Green extremists want to destroy the carbon energy that powers our industries, supports our life style, funds our welfare and provides our jobs. They want to take us back to primitive green energy that can never support modern civilised life.

We have played with weather-dependent wind-solar toys for too long. They will never power an advanced economy, nor will they lift poor nations from poverty. And they provide no demonstrated benefits for the climate, the landscape or consumers. All taxes, subsidies and energy targets that prop up unreliable intermittent energy must be abolished.

Thirdly: Build More Dams and Weirs.
Much of our continent cycles between droughts and floods. Both problems have the same solution – catch and store flood waters. The oceans are never short of water, but our land often is.

Finally: Fight Fire with Fire.
Every dry season we lose homes, properties, livestock, parks and wildlife to massive bushfires. There is only one solution – copy aboriginals and graziers and use small, managed, early-season fires to remove flammable ground litter. This will require landowners and local fire-fighters (not urban greenies) to manage fuel-reduction burns.

We must fix these four issues. Stop draining Australian money to support foreign agendas and the bloated UN bureaucracy. Let’s help Australians instead.

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.

 

We must withdraw from Paris Climate Agreement

By Viv Forbes,

Executive Director of the Saltbush Club

The growing Saltbush Club has announced a national campaign to support Australia’s immediate withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement.

Viv Forbes throws out the challenge to political parties: prove CO2 is causing alleged climate change…..

The new group aims to prevent ratification or local enforcement of the Paris targets and taxes.

The Executive Director of The Saltbush Club, Mr Viv Forbes, said that Australia will suffer badly from the destructive energy policies being promoted in the UN’s war on cheap, reliable hydro-carbon fuels such as oil, diesel, gas and coal and the backbone industries that rely on them – mining and smelting, farming, fishing, forestry, processing and manufacturing.

“Australia’s electricity supply is particularly vulnerable with no nuclear power, no geothermal power, limited hydro power and growing obstacles to gas exploration. This war on natural hydro-carbon fuels is denying our industries and consumers the cheap reliable power that is needed for more industries and jobs,” he said.

“There is no justification for the ceaseless war on oil, coal, cattle and cars – human production of carbon dioxide and methane has no measurable effect on global temperature. Earth’s climate cannot be tweaked by uglifying the hillsides with windmills, plastering the flats with solar collectors, funding Climate Jamborees, subsidising electric cars, buying bigger batteries or putting more taxes on coal or diesel.

“CO2 is naturally sequestered by oceans and the biosphere. Burning natural hydrocarbons merely supplements the natural carbonaceous nutrients in the biosphere – already world food production and global forests have benefitted from the small increases in carbon dioxide plant food in Earth’s atmosphere.

“The Saltbush Club intends alert the public to those foolish politicians supporting the Paris hobble chains and to support those patriotic and sensible people opposing this destructive deal.

“We have prepared a summary of Ten Reasons for Australia to Exit the Paris Deal. This leaflet will be distributed widely.

“We will also collaborate with all other groups that oppose the Paris Deal, including but not confined to Advance Australia, the Australian Conservatives, the Green Shirts, the Yellow Vest Movement, PHON, the LDP, the DLP and sensible elements or individuals within the Liberals, Nationals and ALP.

“We are not hopeful of finding anyone among the Green politicians with a climate/energy policy worthy of support.”

“Believing carbon dioxide is the planet’s climate control knob is pretty close to believing in magic.”
– Dr. Richard Lindzen

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.”

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?

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
