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?
GetUp Australia is billionaire George Soros’ puppet cult. It is one of the most dangerous pressure groups (naïve students and Greens disciples) in Australia today. Canada and Hungary right now are moving to ban all George Soros funded organisations in their countries. Soros backed and funded Hilary Clinton’s disastrous campaign to become US president. Soros has been found by US authorities to fund left-wing violent campaigns against Trump and the powerful firearms lobby.
Soros directly funded demonstrations to disrupt Trump’s inauguration and also contributed towards the ‘womens march’ in the US, attended by hairy armpitted, hairy legged, pseudo-intellectual, chardonnay-sipping left-wing feminists who hate men with a passion.Below is the latest tirade from the Bolsheviks of GetUp:
George Soros funds violent left-wing demonstrations, Hilary Clinton and GetUp Australia
Right-wing Senator Cory Bernardi just announced he’s leaving the Liberals to form his own ‘Australian Conservatives’ Party. Modelling himself on Donald Trump, Bernardi’s agenda is one of hate, climate destruction and increasing inequality. His policies hurt people. And he’s starting off with 50,000 followers and his “very close friend” Gina Rinehart, who joined Bernardi in meetings with Trump’s campaign team in New York.1 Like Trump, we can’t underestimate Bernardi or the damage he can do. We have a community of 1 million members, who proved last election we can take on the far right and win. If there’s any group of committed, passionate people who can counter Bernardi’s Trump-inspired politics of division, it’s us. But to keep countering that far right agenda, we need to fight harder and longer than any election campaign. That means more people joining the GetUp Crew — the team of GetUp supporters who make a regular donation to fund our collective power.
What will we do? Everything GetUp does best. We’re going to counter and frustrate Bernardi’s mining-backed right-wing agenda with bigger, deeper and more far-reaching campaigns — just like we did to stop Tony Abbott’s extreme agenda. We’ll hit the streets, airwaves and online. And we’ll counter his 50,000 followers with 1 million passionate GetUp members, like we’ve done time and again on the issues that matter. But we won’t stop there. We’ll also work with members to mobilise in their own communities, and get their neighbours and friends involved to organise for lasting, long-term change that combats hate and division with unity. And we’ll drive the political narrative with cutting-edge, media-grabbing policy research that takes back the agenda from Bernardi’s denial of science and fact. All to be backed in by the creative ads and viral videos that reach millions and stand out from the political pack.
The Greens and Labor have come together to produce a report to have coal electricity banned.
I had something to say about this!!! .. watch the video which may take a few seconds to load.
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.”

Dear Senators Lee Rhiannon and Richard Di Natale,
It has come to my attention that there are TWO community groups in Australia that are currently being supported financially (via poster printing) by Senator Lee Rhiannon that could be considered unworthy of any style of support in a civilised society.
The activities of these groups, which share the same logo and most likely the same people, fall so short of community expectations as to be regarded as scandalous.
The activities of these two groups are -slander, theft, assault and attempted murder.
Posters bearing the words “authorised by Senator Lee Rhiannon” & “printed by Senator Lee Rhiannon – Parliament House, Canberra ACT…..” have been seen and photographed around numerous suburbs, not only myself and people I am associated with but also by members of the general public for both groups.
The posters from the second group I have only recently had confirmation of, which is the reason in the delay in dealing with this matter.
The first group is anti fascist action sydney, who have a web page https://antifascistactionsydney.wordpress.com which is comprised of smear and rather feeble attempts at Alinsky style ridicule.
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.
Katter thinks ruling on “bat tree” pruning is madness – “bat greenies are dangerous fanatical extremists”
KAP member for Kennedy, Bob Katter thinks the verdict and fines handed down to an arborist and Cairns Regional Council by Magistrate on Tuesday for pruning the infamous flying fox trees are wrong.
Mr Katter said, “Cairns Regional Council is not even allowed to carry out normal safety measures from qualified arborists! These bat greenies are dangerous fanatical extremists and they’d be more at home in Iraq or Syria than here.
“These bat extremists have spiritual belief systems that fly in the face of common humanity. Future generations will look upon them as they’ll look upon the abhorrent behavior of other crazy extremists down through history without the slightest scintilla of humanitarian values.
“We can’t continue our tourism industry with bat droppings falling out of the sky above you carrying all sorts of diseases and let me go through them:
- The bat-born Lyssavirus (A.K.A “Bat Virus”), (rabies like disease). In a Qld government health paper it says that Lyssavirus is almost always fatal. A young boy died a terrible death from Lyssavirus after being bitten or scratched by a flying fox in North Qld in 2013.
- Leptospirosis (Which would kill cane cutters. This is transmitted via the urine of infected animals. A main originating factor is flying foxes.)
- Hendra Virus (We’ve had 6 cases of Hendra in Qld and four have been fatal.) Hendra is almost always fatal.
- Avian Flu
- Nipah Virus
“We need jobs from the tourism trade and I’m sick and tired of ratbags telling me this is the bat’s habitat. The proliferation of pythons have vanished because of the cane toads, they’re mostly gone. The owls and other predatory birds have been crowded out of the trees because of the massive bat numbers. Nature is completely out of balance. Humans have a right to defend themselves and protect their families.”

ALP, LNP and Greens to welcome 15,000 Muslim refugees
A large truck laden with guns and ammunition today careered through crowds in Nice as they lined the streets for Bastille Day festivities, killing 84 and injuring another 100, some critically.
Onlookers reported shots coming from the truck cabin before the driver was shot dead by police.
While more mass killings occur in France and the horror of Middle East carnage continues in the name of Islam, Liberal, Labor and their bedmates the Greens blunder on blithely unaware that such an incident could occur tomorrow anywhere in Australia.
Much of the Australian community was outraged at Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s public endorsement of Islam by supporting Muslims celebrating Ramadan.
The poor 2016 election result for the Liberal Party and the election of Pauline Hanson to the senate demonstrates the general dislike of extreme Muslims by Australian society.
The trilogy’s united support for Islam flies in the face of the majority of the Australian population.
While Europe burns, Turnbull, Shorten and Di Natale will soon welcome another 15,000 Muslim refugees into Australia after the leaders were bullied by the United Nations.
“From my family to yours, Ramadan Mubarak ” Turnbull wrote on his Facebook page.
Turnbull’s Sydney electorate of Wentworth reportedly is controlled by Muslims who command more than 15 per cent of the vote.
Pauline Hanson to attend demonstration near Cairns Saturday
Pauline Hanson along with some of her senate candidates will visit Cairns on Saturday, July 16 to take part in a rally at Gordonvale against the Labor party’s widely-hated vegetation management laws due to be debated in State Parliament in August.

THE Greens yesterday surpassed even their lofty benchmark for blatantly nutty policies, declaring in just one day they want to hire snipers to shoot pet dogs, double the number of firefighters to combat global warming and destroy our retirement by slugging us with massive superannuation tax increases.
And the madness doesn’t stop there. The Greens also want to give prisoners the vote — which would give mass murderers such as Ivan Milat and Martin Bryant the right to cast a vote at the ballot box at the next federal election.
Although Labor leader Bill Shorten signed a solemn pledge — drawn up by The Daily Telegraph — promising he will never do a deal with the Greens to form a government, the leader of the loony left rabble, Richard Di Natale, believes Labor will end up doing precisely that if it means the difference between government and opposition..
In a sign of the policies the Greens would seek to implement if it was ever given the balance of power again, Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young yesterday threw out the spectre of medium- to high-income earners having to pay up to 47 per cent tax on their super contributions.
She was forced to recant from a trainwreck of an interview in which she said: “Look, we’re saying in order to make it fair you should be paying the same tax rate on income as you do for what you’re earning on your super.”
Later in the interview, she attempted to clarify her position, saying: “I’ve had a text from my chief of staff sitting outside, sending me the table.
“It’s basically as I was saying. A progressive tax rate.”
The Greens then released the policy, which showed that it did indeed want the progressive income tax scale applied to super — but with a top tax band of 32 per cent on those earning more than $150,000.
Potential Greens voters were then given an even bigger shock when Tasmanian Greens senator Peter Whish-Wilson called for snipers to shoot dogs that get too close to penguin colonies.
And controversial Greens candidate for the Sydney seat of Grayndler Jim Casey then suggested Australia could help combat climate change by doubling the number of firefighters.
Mr Casey, who is himself a firefighter, announced the Greens would spend $120 million over four years to double the number of fireys because, he said, global warming will cause “more frequent, catastrophic bushfires”.
“Global warming is already driving devastating and sometimes fatal bushfires across Australia. We must act now to save lives from increasing bushfires in a warming world,” Mr Casey said.
He appeared to claim bushfires were a result of global warming rather than arsonists and lightning strikes.
“Bushfires (are) intensifying dramatically due to global warming. We must boost numbers of paid firefighters to share the workload,” he said.
DUMB POLICY 1
Greens leader Richard “Spock” Di Natale wants to give prisoners the vote, which means mass murderers like Ivan Milat and Martyn Bryant would be able to affect the outcome of the next federal election
DUMB POLICY 2
Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young wants to tax super contributions at the same rate as income tax
DUMB POLICY 3
Greens candidate Jim Casey who is going up against Labor’s Anthony Albanese in the inner Sydney seat of Grayndler, wants to double the number of fireys to combat “global warming”
DUMB POLICY 4
Greens Senator Peter Whish-Wilson wants to employ snipers to shoot dogs that get too close to penguin colonies
Cairns News Editorial:
Party faithful Green lemmings will continue following their leaders over the cliff into oblivion with best wishes from all logical voters.
A tidal wave of voter awareness will swamp the polls on July 2 in spite of LNP and ALP spin doctors demonising Jackie Lambie, Bob Katter, Andrew Wilkie and Nick Xenophon, who actually represent their constituents contrary to government and opposition politicians.
Social media is swimming with discontent ranging from the invasion of our cities by Islam to free trade agreements signing away our sovereignty.
With this election presenting an unprecedented challenge to the establishment elite, we will assist you to remove the LNP, ALP, Greens, power base by publishing a “how to vote card” over the next few days.
