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.

                                                          California wastelands

 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.

So, what is the real agenda?

As they tap dance to prove their innocence they dig themselves further into their hole.

ABC – Female traffic light signals to go up at pedestrian crossing as Committee for Melbourne tackles ‘unconscious bias’ Hey what about me! As a beer drinking lout I want to be represented too. I can feel a complaint to Ms Triggs coming on.

Hold the Front Page! Unless it’s a hoax/false news/no news, I’ve just heard the dumbest thing eva! Melbourne is to change the figure depicted on pedestrian crossing lights to the silhouette of a WOMAN; all in the name of equality. Apparently the cost is $8000/6 lightsets. Just done a quick calculation on the back of a beer coaster ( favourite socialist alternative to s spreadsheet..see NBN) and I reckon I’ll do it for 40 cents per lens. I’ll paste on HALF a skirt on each one, so they are All Bisexual. Jobs right.

I’m with Herme’s on this one. So far, Trumpy is the best thing that has happened since sliced bread.

I am responding in the singular Rinaldo whilst you appear to want to interpret it in the plural. pelican is all conspiracy theories just like you. It would appear that you now see some remote suggestion of a conspiracy in my comments. If that is the case you would be wrong. I was agreeing with pelican for the first time, but it probably wasn’t for the same reason as him. Nothing more complicated than that.

probability in this instance is a guess, but that doesn’t mean that pelican’s statement(S) are theories.

“99% of which come from dubious sources … ” Tell me what it is you know about the source of my information and why it is that you say it is “dubious”.

Rinaldo …. I’ve already pointed out the dubiousness of a few of your sources over time .. seems you’ve ignored that or not read it
