Welcome news from the Liberal and Labor church of free trade – Adam Smith would be proud of Mr Turnbull, Mr Shorten and their Uruguay DOFAT mandarins
Today the Queensland Government has confirmed White Spot virus has been found in wild prawns in Moreton Bay off Brisbane and now cannot be stopped.
KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter said, “I congratulate the Government of the Australia with their Free Trade policies and no quarantine.
“Our prawn industry has been sacrificed on the altar of Free Trade.
“Not only all our industries have been exported overseas, and our jobs exported overseas but you’ve imported workers from overseas, which has been a cancer upon our pay and conditions and job opportunities in Australia — but now you’ve succeeded in destroying our oceans.
“Because the currents flow north, White Spot will now be taken up the Qld coast and infect the Great Barrier Reef.
“This was done with eyes wide open.
“Every single person associated with the prawn industry and every scientist who ever looked at this knew if you brought the prawns in, you’d bring the White Spot in… and the IHHNV and heaven only knows which hundreds of other diseases we haven’t identified…and these damn people in Canberra run around talking about our clean green image,” said Mr Katter.
The Australian Prawn Farmers Association (APFA) President Matt West owns a prawn farm in the Mackay region. In a media report from January this year, Mr West says although his stock are some distance from the Sth East Qld region damaged by the outbreak, the disease can spread rapidly, “especially if it gets hold in the wild”.
NB: Cairns News published an exclusive story on January 10, 2107 about Chinese prawn importer Sino deliberately altering prawn samples for biosecurity testing. The company has been charged by Federal Police for falsifying records allowing white spot infected prawns to be introduced into Queensland. Imported green prawns infected with white spot virus used by anglers for fish bait are thought to have infected seven Gold Coast prawn farms and now Moreton Bay near Brisbane.
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.
September 4.This corrupt organisation, the United Nations made up largely of third world nations wants all countries to stop any further development in the name of ‘greenhouse’ (greenhoax) gas emissions that cause ‘climate change.’
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon welcomed the conference’s focus on sustainable development and climate change, urging all countries to take early action on these.
Last September, the UN General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a new global framework to advance peace and prosperity for all people and for a healthy planet.
Ahead of G20 opening, Ban stresses ‘far-reaching’ impacts of early climate action, urges unity on Global Goals
4 September 2016 – At a G20 summit in the southeastern city of Hangzhou in China, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today welcomed the conference’s focus on sustainable development and climate change, urging all countries to take early action on these.
“For the first time in the history of the G20, the Hangzhou draft communiqué is now focusing on this Sustainable Development Action Agenda as one of their most important [aspects of] the outcome document,” the UN chief said at a press conference, ahead of the summit’s opening.
“Climate change and Sustainable Development Goals should go hand in hand. That is not my message – that is the message of all scientists, economists and all experts,” he added, stressing that “early action will bring more and more, and better and better results.”

The healthy Great Barrier Reef deniers have been caught out lying about coral bleaching and the near-pristine condition of the world’s best coral icon.
Dive boat operators who visit the reef almost on a daily basis taking thousands of tourists on diving expeditions have been telling authorities for several years there is nothing wrong with the reef.
They have warned lying so-called conservation bodies such as the WWF, Wilderness Society, CAFNEC, the National Coral Bleaching Taskforce and the Australian Conservation Foundation their misleading campaigns would harm the Far North tourism trade.
Tourist operators have advised the State Government that coral bleaching is a natural and annual event that can affect small sections of the reef.
Spirit of Freedom dive boat owner Chris Eade told the Cairns Post that reports of coral bleaching along 93 per cent of the 2300 klm reef had damaged the reputation of the $5 billion tourism industry.
“Scientists had written off the entire northern section as a complete white-out,” Mr Eade said.
“We expected the worst, but it is in tremendous condition, most of it pristine, the rest in full recovery.”
“It shows the resilience of the reef.”
Mike Ball Dive Expeditions operations manager Craig Stephen, who conducted a similar survey on the remote reefs 20 years ago, said there had been almost no change in two decades despite the latest coral bleaching event.
“The discrepancy is phenomenal. It is so wrong. Everywhere we have been we have found healthy reefs,” Mr Ball said.
“There has been a great disservice to the Great Barrier Reef and tourism and it has not been good for our industry.”
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority estimated a mass coral white-out of between 50 to 60 per cent, on average, for reefs off Cape York.
Scientists with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies reported about 35 per cent mortality but warned “the final death toll” on some reefs may exceed 90 per cent.
This year the worst bleaching was found at Lizard Island, 180 klms north of Cooktown, where several reefs have shown distress due to fluctuating water temperatures.

Dive boat operators maintain the reef is in near-pristine condition, dismissing the lies of conservation groups
According to the late Professor Bob Carter of James Cook University in an interview several years ago, this is a natural phenomenon that has occurred for several thousand years.
The climate and reef-runoff cults namely the Labor Party, Greens and conservation groups have campaigned to stop sediment runoff from farming areas which they claim is causing coral bleaching and would be doomsday for the entire reef.
The only problem with the Lizard Island bleaching is that no farming or grazing occurs on the entire eastern coastline or hinterland north of Cooktown which includes the nearby mainland opposite the tourist island. The closest farming activities are 180 kilometres to the south.
Never letting the facts get in the way of a fictitious environmental issue, the State Government in June purchased the large pastoral property ‘Springvale’, 50 klms west of Cooktown for $6.7 million ostensibly to prevent sediment runoff from grazing.
If ever the government made an unnecessary land acquisition, this one took the cake. The Government’s own Chief Scientist Dr Geoff Garrett in May released a report clearing the Spingvale/ Normanby River system of any measurable sediment runoff entering the ocean.
ALP sources have advised there are several more property acquisitions from the Cooktown district in the pipeline, which, according to Lakeland district graziers, would be a monumental waste of taxpayers money and would have a severe impact on the district’s economy.
The Labor Government now proposes a blanket World Heritage listing over the entire Cape York Peninsula to pacify the Greens after their planned, savage vegetation management bill was voted down last week in Parliament, thanks to the good grace of the independent Member for Cook, Billy Gordon.
This vexatious World Heritage nomination will be sure to agitate indigenous people and pastoralists who said they would take the fight to the minority ALP government which is teetering on the edge of electoral defeat.
