For yonks they waged a war on coal
And painted miners black;
They threw explorers on the dole
And shut the gates outback.

The land was closed to oil and gas
And nukes were always banned;
While wind and sun got all the brass
And uglified the land.

Poles and turbines all in ranks
Sprouted on the hills;
The carbon credits pleased the banks
And households got the bills.

Then all the factories fled offshore
As puny power flickered;
More jobs were lost for evermore
As politicians dickered.

Then one still night the lights went out
And blackouts stalked the land;
The pollies quickly turned about
And Greens were spurned and banned.

(Art by Steve Hunter)

mots, Hewson is Malcolm Fraser’s protege. More aligned to Sarah Two-Dads than the formerly conservative Liberal Party.

How can the traitorous Liberals and the Stick let Tony get away with the truth?

Am I just being cynical but maybe this “turn of the power” is to scare people into buying generators, solar panels and batteries. So that there will not be the huge backlash when the people will not be able to cook, shower, have air con, watch tv, use the computer and their electric garage doors will not open, just to mention a few.

ISIS extends its influence to Africa. The Pentagon has announced that the militants who killed four Nigerian and four U.S. soldiers in an ambush on the Niger – Mali border are ISIS affiliated.

you pump the water up hill during off peak loads. Pumped storage hydro is common around the world but in the end is unsustainable. Plus for a country like Australia with it’s droughts and having to restore water flows to some river systems I can’t see it being viable.

Malcolm Turbull to appear on the Morning Show with Larry Emdur this morning. Not afraid of the hard-hitting interview is our Malcolm. FM radio must be sick of him.

I am convinced that the only way this RET, Climate Change insanity will end is when the whole country is on it’s knees in the dark. Only then will people rise up as one and grab these idiots by the throat and throw them out of power. Metaphorically speaking. Until then we are fucked.

I read the same article at news.com.au re hysterical Bishop. She sounds a bit panicked that TA is telling the truth. Has been Hewson also sounds panicked about it and advises WWW to stand up and say something. Meanwhile WWW seems to be hiding under the bed. Good for Tony, call out the lies.

That’s because the houses were not prepared for bushfire, it happens here in Australia as well, as an ex fire fighter I see the causes simply by looking at google earth views of the areas before the fire and see the gutters full of dry leaves and other combustible stuff laying around near the house, not to mention the actual construction of the buildings out of flammable products. I live in the bush and have built a fire proof house, it’s not rocket science, just common sense but there seems to be a lot of that lacking in people these… Read more »

ABC must disclose salaries over $200,000

The ABC will have to disclose the identities of its highest-paid stars by the end of next month, after a request from the federal government. The Herald Sun reports today that Communications Minister Mitch Fifield has asked the ABC and SBS to release a list of its journalists and presenters who earn more than $200,000. Six ABC presenters are on pay packages between $300,000 and $375,000, and a further nine earn from $225,000 to $300,000. The ABC also revealed it pays more than $437 million in wages.

We’re in sync Viv. Just yesterday I listened, again, to one of Dr. John Colemans talks where he discusses all this. I’m afraid most of your pearls of wisdom will be lost on 95% of the posters here. They will continue to think it’s all brought about by Labor or even Turnbulls govt. It’s because of ignorance like this that they are able to do what they are doing.

There is no way I’m going to turn my air conditioners up from 23 to 26 deg. or have salads to avoid using the oven just to help Palasczczuk and her Labor mob of incompetents out to attempt to stop a black out. If a blackout helps get rid of this 2nd worst government Queensland has ever had with their stupid 50% renewable energy target con I’m for it. I’ve got solar powered battery marine lights installed and a back patio so I can sit through it.

Keep an eye on the Mark Steyn versus the Michael Mann “Hockey Stick” trial that has been going on in the United States for some years now. The global warming guru, Mann, has been avoiding going to trial by hook or by crook after he sued Steyn for calling him out on his lies – Mann has been sending his detractors broke by process but has met his match in Steyn. It is a very important court case that isn’t receiving nearly as much attention as it should.

Peter Garrett once floated the idea, when he was a Labor minister, whereby normal residents would have slop buckets that they would empty into a truck once a week – food stuffs and whatnot. These people should be placed on an island somewhere; we, in the civilised scientific world could watch their virtue-signalling shenanigans in our air-conditioned lounge rooms as a reality show; it would be akin to Lord of the Flies. Rudd, Gillard, Swan and Garrett – lest we forget.
