The Greens are complete hypocrites


Warm yourself by the heat from this burning wind turbine…

Greens: We must build wind farms to save the planet!
Also Greens: We must not build wind farms to save endangered birds!

Unprincipled to the highest degree, the Greens will relentlessly push for damaging environmental action like wind farms and massive solar arrays… as long as it’s for other people.

Total hypocrites.

Environmentalists are supposed to like wind farms. They provide renewable energy and are seen as a key part of the energy transition as Australia attempts to lower its carbon emissions to meet its Paris Agreement obligations.

But former leader of the Greens, Bob Brown, has come out swinging against a giant new wind farm planned for Robbins Island, in the north-west corner of Tasmania.

He says it is in the wrong place, will ruin the view and kill endangered birds like the Tasmanian wedge-tail eagle and the white-breasted sea eagle that live on the island, and potentially migratory birds like the swift parrot and the orange-bellied parrot that travel between Tasmania and the mainland.

Today’s challenge – find any principle or consistency in the Greens’ shrill environmental posturing. Yeah, good luck with that…

Latest idiotic buzz-phrase from the UN: “Climate apartheid”


Alston

As the climate scare continues to lose traction with the vast majority of ordinary people who are simply getting on with life, the hysteria becomes ever more extreme. Embarrassingly enough, this guy is an Aussie, and seemingly has no qualms about attaching one of the most politically charged words in our vocabulary to the issue of climate change:

The world is increasingly at risk of “climate apartheid”, where the rich pay to escape heat and hunger caused by the escalating climate crisis while the rest of the world suffers, a report from a UN human rights expert has said.

Philip Alston, UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, said the impacts of global heating are likely to undermine not only basic rights to life, water, food, and housing for hundreds of millions of people, but also democracy and the rule of law. (source)

But according to Alston, there are “some positive developments”, including, apparently, the actions of eco-terrorist group Extinction Rebellion, and the contribution of bizarre parental plaything Greta Thunberg.

I think that really tells you all you need to know…

🤡🌏 Sydney mayor Clover Moore tries to “virtue signal” the climate into submission 😂


Get her off my screen…

Honk honk! Clown World! 📯📯 🤡🌏

The lunatics are truly in charge of the asylum.

What the actual? Clover Moore has always been a complete f-ing moonbat, but this takes the cake.

City of Sydney councillors will vote next week on a plan to declare climate change as posing a “serious risk” to residents, and that it should be treated as a national emergency.

Lord mayor Clover Moore will ask the council to demand the Morrison government responds by re-introducing a price on carbon and to establish a “Just Transition Authority” to assist employees to exit fossil fuel industries.

“Successive federal governments have shamefully presided over a climate disaster, and now we are at a critical juncture – we face a climate emergency,” Cr Moore said in a statement.

What exactly can the City of Sydney contribute to mitigating this “climate emergency” I wonder? Build some more bike lanes, perhaps? Virtue signal the climate into submission? If anyone can do it, Clover can!!

Planet’s been here 4-and-a-half-billion-fuckin-years, but what do I know…?

Geez. Climate Madness reigns in Sydney.

ABC’s climate bias is beyond belief


Everyone agreeing with everyone else…

“Snowcone and the Snowflakes.”

Oh but the ABC is completely balanced, the Left will wail. And to them it probably is – every view is of the alarmist Left.

Monday’s Q&A was a disgrace. Five alarmists plus Leftist Tony Jones discuss the “science” and – surprise surprise – everybody agrees with everybody else!

How about getting Richard Lindzen to take part? Or Peter Ridd? Or Stewart Franks? Or any one of the thousands of respected, qualified scientists from around the world who question the rabid scaremongering of the Green machine?

Here are just a few examples (including old Snowcone chiming in to agree):

  • Kirsten Banks: It’s very sad to me. We’re losing all of our flora and fauna. [All, Kirsten? Really? – Ed]
  • Brian Cox: … it’s the pace of change, I think, is what worries the professionals. And I get the sense, in the last few years, that the pace has taken people by surprise. So, it’s actually rather worse, I think, and faster than many of the climate models have suggested a few years ago. [It’s the models that are overheated mate, not the climate – Ed]
  • Emma Johnston: we need to get into negative carbon emissions, so we have to start geoengineering, planting trees, potentially finding ways of sequestering carbon in other ways, in order to keep…in order to keep the Reef, you know? 
  • Emma Johnston: Every government report says that the number one threat to the Great Barrier Reef is climate change. Tony Jones: Yeah. Emma Johnston: We’re going to lose it.
  • Martin Van Kranendonk: And so because Australia is such, you know, a very sort of tipping-point kind of continent, it’s almost like the canary in the coalmine. And we’re seeing the effects of climate change right in our backyard.
  • David Karoly: ...there’s at least one – probably more – climate scientists in Europe that have said that the long-term sustainable population of people on the Earth is about 1 billion people in 2100 – not the foreshadowed United Nations population estimates of about 10 to 12 billion people. That’s not good news. Tony Jones: No, it’s a shocking equation, actually. [Yeah, that’s right Snowcone – just agree with Karoly – Ed]

No wonder we are raising an entire generation of children suffering from pathological climate anxiety, bombarded as they are by a constant stream of apocalyptic alarmism without any element of moderation.

Transcript is here.

Fan-bloody-tastic!


Scomo wins!

I got drunk twice on Saturday night, firstly between 6 and 8pm when I was drowning my sorrows at the thought of a Shorten government, then secondly when I got home and realised the Coalition had pulled off the most amazing election turnaround in recent Australian history.

So I had a double hangover on Sunday, but boy was it worth it. Australia has once again escaped the grasp of Labor’s increasingly extreme Green/Left agenda, and most importantly has dodged the bullet of economy-wrecking “climate action”.

With Turnbull and all the other lefty bed-wetters (Pyne I’m looking at you) gone from the Coalition benches, there may be hopes of a genuine conservative government – low taxing, small footprint, pro-individual, pro-business etc etc – and with none of that mad climate action that readers of this blog know full well is POINTLESS.

Happy days!

Shorten’s latest ‘dumb’ climate response – “cost of inaction”


Brainless buffoon

On ABC last night, Bill Shorten last night called anyone questioning Labor’s climate policy “dumb”. Gee, that will no doubt go down well with voters, right deplorables?

His stock response to anyone with the audacity to want some kind of clear dollar figure is now to bleat about the “cost of inaction”.

This is the most idiotic response anyone could imagine – for the following very simple reason: The cost of inaction will not be offset by the cost of action.

Let me just explain that. Let’s say for the sake of argument, that in a particular year, this supposed “cost of inaction” (which I dispute even exists) is $10 billion.

Let’s say that the following year we decide to take $10 billion worth of “climate action”. Given Australia’s contribution to global emissions is 1.5%, this amount of money will do nothing to change the climate. So the total cost is just the cost of action plus the cost of inaction, i.e. $20 billion. 

So all we’ve done is wasted another $10 billion! Brilliant! Shorten economics on display.

Even if we shut down our economy, costing us our entire GDP of $1.3 trillion, the net climate cost would still be $1.3 trillion plus the $10 billion “cost of inaction”… BECAUSE IT WOULD MAKE NO FREAKING DIFFERENCE TO THE CLIMATE.

Whatever climate action Australia takes is still “inaction” on a global scale.

It’s you that is dumb, Bill. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

How the Coalition can still win the General Election


Still up for grabs

This election is still up for grabs, despite what the polls say. The Australian people don’t trust Bill Shorten, the memories of Rudd-Gillard-Rudd are still fresh in their minds, and they are very suspicious of Labor’s ties to violent, militant unions like the CFMEU and extreme fringe-dwellers like the Greens.

They are also hurting in their wallets thanks to crazy green energy schemes which look like rainbows and unicorns but actually cost ordinary people their standard of living thanks to astronomical electricity prices.

So here are some ways in which the Coalition can still deny Labor a victory in May 2019:

  • Hit Labor’s legendary economic incompetence hard – push the no-surplus-since-1989 line for all it is worth. Labor couldn’t manage a candy store let alone an economy, and people need to be reminded of this. Labor means higher taxes, more government waste, higher unemployment, lower growth and more debt – it always has and it always will – it’s that simple.
  • Hit Labor’s consistent weakness on borders equally hard – they lie about maintaining strong borders but it’s just that – a lie. Just look at Kevin 07 to see where that ended up last time. The boats will be back on the water before the votes are all counted, and more innocent victims will die at sea. Left-leaning parties the world over are unanimous in their desire to let in as many third-world migrants as possible into Western democracies because they know they will unwaveringly shore up their vote – yes, it really is that blatant. Power is all that matters to the Left.
  • Hit Labor’s delusional climate obsession just as hard – pandering to their Greenie mates, Labor is obsessed with tackling climate change and “saving the Barrier Reef”, despite the fact that any cuts Australia makes to emissions will be swamped by China’s new coal fired power stations in no time at all. All pain and no gain. What’s hilarious is that they are dumb enough to believe that reducing emissions in Australia will somehow make the climate better in Australia – which is patently false since mitigation is averaged over the entire planet and anything Australia does is immediately cancelled out by China and India.
  • Attack Labor’s ridiculous electric vehicle policy, which is laughably ignorant and will essentially cripple the Australian economy. Plus the fact that Bill thinks they can be charged in under ten minutes – twit.
  • Commit to build new high efficiency low emission coal fired power stations across Australia, to guarantee baseload power supplies and keep prices affordable. This would be a huge vote winner for the Coalition, and if they don’t announce this, they shouldn’t even be in government.
  • Lift the ban on nuclear generation. Australia has the largest reserves of uranium in the world, and the largest expanse of Outback in which to store it safely. To prohibit nuclear power generation in this country is criminal.

Let’s see how many of these they actually do. I’m not holding my breath.
