A levy imposed on the fossil fuel industry to pay for fighting bushfires allegedly caused by climate change is absurd, unscientific and will not stop wildfires.
It comes as part of 165 recommendations by the Emergency Leaders for Climate Action (ELCA), a group of more than 150 experts and affected community members, in a bid to improve bushfire readiness, response and recovery.
How 150 so-called experts could get it so wrong is typical when academia in concert with government closes ranks to assure a pre-determined outcome. Climate change has been discredited by thousands of scientists around the world.
The real cause of the Queensland, NSW and Victorian wildfires was four decades of disastrous Labor Party environmental policies. Grazing properties, forestry reserves, national parks and state land were locked up then the socialist governments threw away the keys.
After the Aboriginal firestick disappeared 100 years ago the problem grew worse across the nation but in particular NSW and Victoria where successive state governments acquired hundreds of grazing and farming properties and turned them into national parks or environmental reserves.
Wet years would see vegetation grow uncontrollably in these parks and reserves creating a huge amount of fuel for fires. Firefighters in Victoria were reported as saying they saw forest detritus one to two metres thick over large areas they were trying to protect.
Naturally with such fuel loads nothing could save these forests. A complete lack of hazard reduction burning over many years by authorities left vast areas potential fire bombs of nuclear proportion.
The other major fire prevention deficiency was a lack of cleared firebreaks. Hours of television footage covering the wildfires revealed almost no firebreaks and no machinery to make any.
In Queensland, NSW and Victoria, all suffering from decades of Labor rule, it was most evident that rural firefighters had only public roads or power line tracks for access to reserves and private property to conduct back burning.
It was a hopeless, dangerous situation that volunteer firefighters faced and there were no bulldozers or graders to construct breaks even when the RFS had weeks of opportunity to build breaks before fires arrived. Labor policies prevent disturbing any trees or vegetation growing in reserves and on private property from being damaged or removed by constructing a firebreak.
Fire experts and seasoned firefighters know that in temperate climates during the dry season hot bush fires stoked by half a metre of detritus in eucalypt forests create their own fire environment developing strong winds and wild atmospheric conditions to create crown fires.
These fires are impossible to stop, but they are relatively easy to prevent. Climate change is pure nonsense and Labor and Liberal governments must shoulder most of the blame.
Then there are the city people who want a life in the bush but have no idea of rural conditions especially fire prevention. They set up bush camps in the hills to live their dream.. No water, no power, no machinery, no fire breaks and no sense.
Many of the burnt-out homes, ranging from subsistence dwellers to large well-constructed houses had eucalyptus trees growing out of the lounge room, so to speak. How did they think they could prevent their homes from burning down?
The television footage of burnt out homes from all states in the aftermath of the conflagrations said it all, the most evident mistake being a complete lack of fire breaks due to government regulations, an inadequate water supply and lack of fire-fighting equipment.
In NSW alone 2439 homes were lost and at least 33 people died in the summer fire season of 2019-20. More than 400 homes were burnt down in Victoria and 5 people lost their lives leaving nationally, 46.3 million acres ravaged and many of the forests permanently damaged never to recover.
Hard as it is to believe, this man, Greg Mullins, a former NSW Fire and Rescue Commissioner and a member of the ECLA is supposedly a seasoned fire fighter. He is blaming climate change. He is simply deflecting blame from the socialist policies of the political party duopoly.
“The escalation in natural disasters is driven by climate change,” he said.
“There should be a levy on the fossil fuel industry, given all their tax breaks.
“We had the hottest, driest year ever — a year that would not have happened without the impact of climate change.
“It drove the worst bushfires in Australia’s history — they were bigger, hotter, faster and more destructive [than] what we’ve ever experienced before.”
“The fires were weather driven and the weather was driven by a warming climate,” Mr Mullins said.
Australia was on average hotter in the 18th century than the 19th or 20th and the extent of the fires was not unique. The climate varies widely according to changing cycles of the Sun. Earth has been wobbling on its axis in recent years causing abnormal, prolonged exposure to the Sun in southern areas of the continent.
Blaming excess carbon dioxide emissions for fires is pure fantasy. Carbon dioxide is essential for life and responsible scientists say we need more not less.
Australia’s hot, arid climate and wind-driven bushfires were a new and frightening phenomenon to the European settlers of the colonial era. The devastating Victorian bushfires of 1851, remembered as the Black Thursday bushfires, burned in a chain from Portland to Gippsland, and sent smoke billowing across the Bass Strait to north west Tasmania.
State Library of Victoria:
Widespread bushfires occurred in Victoria in early February 1851. The height of the destruction happened on Black Thursday, 6 February 1851.
‘Fires covered a quarter of what is now Victoria (approximately 5 million hectares). Areas affected include Portland, Plenty Ranges, Westernport, the Wimmera and Dandenong districts. Approximately 12 lives, one million sheep and thousands of cattle were lost’.
Mr Mullins should do some research into fire fighting methodology and revert to the tried and proven policies of Forestry departments before the advent of dangerous United Nations environmental policies enacted after Australia signed up to Agenda 21.
This UN policy on Environment and Development was endorsed by world governments at a Rio de Janerio conference in 1992 and is in reality a blueprint for de-population.
All Australian governments jumped onboard and its environmental policies ever since have all but destroyed agriculture and increased the cost of housing by 30 per cent. Environment departments followed this UN dictate closely and now we have borne the brunt of it.
Perhaps the former fire chief should set his sights on reversing the harmful effects of this treaty instead of following some esoteric climate change vision. Demanding another impost on hard hit tax payers is sheer folly.
Is the directed energy weapon used to make way for an infrastructure of “smart cities” in Australia?

“Our fiber lasers operate with an efficiency that generates less heat and exists in a smaller housing allowing easier integration into various defense platforms. Our ALADIN laser has been operating in the field for two years without the need for realignment, proving both the deadliness and the reliability of our solutions. ”
– Dr. Rob Afzal, Senior Researcher, Sensors and Laser Systems
A theoretical, and entirely legitimate, question arises when we seek to perceive the truth among the scraps of information that we receive every day from the traditional media: is the directed energy weapon secretly used to make room for “smart cities” infrastructure in Australia? A directed energy weapon emits energy in a desired direction without the need for a projectile. It transfers energy to a target for the desired effect. The desired effects on humans may or may not be lethal.
In addition to its use on people or as a potential missile defense, directed energy technology has also been shown to stop or disable moving cars, drones, jet skis and electronic devices such as cell phones. An electrolaser allows (thanks to the laser) that the blooming occurs (forming a channel / path of ionized air of conductor), then sends a powerful electric current through the channel / path of plasma formed in the direction of the target, much like lightning. It works like a giant version of the Taser or a high-energy electric pulse pistol over a long distance.
“Now is the time to send directed energy weapons to the battlefield. The Army recognizes the need for directed energy lasers as part of its modernization plan. It is no longer a research or demonstration effort. It is a strategic combat capability, and we are on track to get it into the hands of the soldiers. ”

On December 11, 2019, Julie Kern wrote on the Futura-Sciences site: “The fires in Australia do not seem to be ending. It has been almost five months since the beginning of August that the country of kangaroos burns everywhere. The regions of New South Wales and Queensland are the most affected. More than three million hectares have been devastated by the flames in these two regions. Currently, 87 homes are still active covering a perimeter of more than ten kilometers. They are essentially bush fires which progress quickly and produce a lot of smoke which suffocates cities like Sydney. The fires also damaged precious ecosystems that house endangered animals, and more than 684 homes were consumed by the flames. Despite the emergency, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has not declared a climate emergency in his country. ”
On December 22, 2019, the Sky News reported the Prime Minister’s words that there were “many other factors” than the climate change responsible for the fires that killed at least nine people.
“There is no argument, in my opinion, or from the point of view of the government, and any government in the country, about the links between the broader issues of global climate change and weather events around the world – but I I’m sure people would also recognize that direct connection to a single fire is not a credible suggestion. ”
The “official” news continues to say that the fires were caused by high heat and drought due to climate change and high winds. According to these sources, the earth has become so hot that the trees and grass have caught fire or is so dry that fires have spread over the grass and passed from one house to another even if the grass and brush between the burned houses was still green. For too hot soil, it should be at least 172 degrees C. (341.6 F.) as this is the temperature at which the hay burns (which is drier than the grass) and between 190 and 260 degrees Celsius (374 to 500 degrees F) for wood depending on the type and condition of it. In addition, warmer weather should bring more rain as more water is drawn from the ocean, creating clouds of rain. In the Contracts for Weather Control document, you can read at the bottom of page 13 how HAARP disperses storms and can create winds up to 70 mph.
The order of the day is to convince people that global warming is real in order to gain their acceptance to lose their rights and to shape their lifestyles into a single dictatorial world government.
Although the fire map is not evidence of the use of directed energy weapons, it is strange that almost the entire continent burns at the same time, around the same time that California burns. Australia has had bush fires before, but not nearly as much and at the same time. Mainstream media continues to blame climate change for the hot, dry conditions. As noted above, it must be at least 374 to 500 degrees F for the wood to start burning. (Chemtrail Planet)

Presumably, directed energy weapons appear to be used in California and Australia.
Planning for 5G “smart cities” in Australia
High view to Hyde Park, Sydney at night Driven by cutting-edge technology and infrastructure, smart cities have progressed, embraced a future concept and are now becoming a reality, with the Australian government initiating a new plan to “transform cities and regional sites ”. The “smart city plan” will include new mechanisms to monitor and control society through technology, including intelligent management of infrastructure functions, ground and air sensors, surveillance with facial recognition, “Sustainable projects” and more.
Many systems are already there, and over the next decade, regions of the country are expected to interconnect to create a national 5G smart grid controlled by advanced biometric technologies. By 2021, the number of devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to double, and one major development that is already happening around the world to respond to this increase is the “smart city revolution”.
Using information and communication technologies, a “smart city” aims to provide personalized and intelligent services to residents, businesses and, most importantly, authorities. A smart city is officially defined by international standards as:
“Efficient integration of physical, digital and human systems into the built environment to provide a sustainable, prosperous and inclusive future for its citizens. “(ISO PAS 180, 2014).
A smart city uses data from IoT devices and sensors, widely used by artificial intelligence systems, to improve the city’s service experience, using “smart management” of resources to mitigate problems such as congestion, crime and pollution. Common themes found in smart city designs include: CCTV cameras with facial recognition capabilities, “smart lights” and LED sensors, pedestrian trackers, city movement monitoring systems and “ environmental analyzes ”to understand air quality such as dust, pollution and temperature.
The technology to create this type of smart city is already available and used around the world, including bins that compost, street lights that darken when not needed and light up when pedestrians pass, moment sensors and apps advising live data and much more.
