In the era before coal, oil and electricity, the environment suffered greatly.

Our forefathers were slaughtering whales for lamp oil; they were clearing forests for firewood, mine props, building materials, roofing shingles and sailing masts.

London (“The Big Smoke”) and Pittsburgh (“The Smoky City”) were smothered in smog from open fires, charcoal kilns and iron smelters. Horses powered public and military transport and city streets were layered with horse manure.

Then came the hydro-carbon revolution. Kerosene lamps saved the whales and coal-powered steam engines delivered electricity (clean-coal-by-wire) to the cities. Much of the sulphurous smogs disappeared as a result.

Coke from coal replaced wood charcoal to make iron and steel. Steel and concrete saved the forests and trucks and railways allowed the farmland which once fed millions of horses to produce food for humans.

The UN Is Not At It Again

Not one of these boons for humans AND the environment was driven by a UN resolution or funded by statutory levies on consumers. Nor subsidies from taxpayers. None were mandated in a government energy plan.

The anti-human, anti-industry policies of the Global Greens are now reversing all that progress. Yes, the era before coal.

A key event occurred in 2006 when a leading left-wing politician, Al Gore, invented the Global Warming Industry.

Despite a finding by a British High Court judge that his movie “An Inconvenient Truth” contained nine key scientific errors. It is still shown in schools.

Al Gores’ dream is melting!

This has misled students and teachers and created spreading circles of damage to jobs, industry and the cost and reliability of electricity. It also created the fake industries of climate hysteria and green activism.

https://www.pickeringpost.com/esroh/2742/global-warming-fraud-put-on-ice/

Industry fells forests to burn in green power stations and for green-tick buildings. Meanwhile feral pests invade grasslands and woody weeds from the ever-growing parks and Kyoto Protocol Forests.

Meanwhile birds and bats are being sliced by wind turbines, flatlands are being smothered by solar panels and access roads and transmission lines. Electricity costs soar and supply is rationed while reliability crashes.

Fat Cats Getting Rich on Subsidies

Behind every one of these modern maladies are troughs of Big Green Pigs getting fatter on market mandates, subsidies from consumers or tax payers, and special tax treatments.

In the background, governments fund an academic/media industry promoting climate alarmism, energy rationing and intermittent energy.

Electric cars and penny farthings were pushed off the roads by Henry Ford’s petrol engines, but politicians are trying to put them back. A Tesla for the rich and a bicycle for the poor.

Consumers and industry do not count and the taxpayers are there to be milked. In this Greentopia no one needs miners, farmers or fishermen. They are all lost for a fake global warming Emergency.

The NT cop should not be charged or named for doing his job …

You need to live and work amongst the Murris to see how damaging substance abuse is and how quickly and volatile a situation or drunken brawl can get.. city folk would not have a clue.
I like and get on well with Murris, but you need to understand their culture is different and need to respect that.

This film explores the truly insane & disturbing world of ‘nature commodification’ in all its warped dystopian horror. Witness men in suits tell us how much a fly is worth or how much unpaid bee-labour adds to the economy. Listen to them talk about the amazing investment opportunities in species-scarcity and show their portfolios of rare owls, turtles, butterflies etc. Did you know an entire banking system is evolving that deals with something even less real than fiat-money? That buys up land on which – allegedly – endangered creatures live and then sells the ‘credits’ it gives itself for ‘saving’… Read more »

Peta Credlin gave Morrison a broadside yesterday in the Weekend Oz. Tried to water it down a bit by saying he is not the cause of our power woes but is in a position to fix it and does nothing. Reading between the lines you can see how pissed off she is with him. Aren’t we all. With her years of experience behind her I just wish she would stand as a candidate for Warringah at the next election. Maybe she could stand as a National Party candidate, become its leader and end up as deputy PM. Now that would… Read more »

American Conspiracies & Cover-ups JFK, 9/11, the Fed, rigged elections, suppressed cancer cures and the greatest conspiracies of our time In today’s world, the phrase “conspiracy theory” is pejorative and has a negative connotation. To many people, a conspiracy theory is an irrational, over-imaginative idea endorsed by people looking for attention and not supported by the mainstream media or government. History shows, though, that there have been many times when governments or individuals have participated in conspiracies. It would be naïve to think that intelligence agencies, militaries, government officials, and politicians don’t sometimes cooperate in covert, secretive ways. Following are… Read more »

Just thinking about Ash Barty’s wonderful success and the all pervasive interest of the media in Yvonne Goolagong who had similar success a couple of generations ago. I remember well Goolagong’s success and the way in which Australia took her into our hearts as a great sportswoman. She wasn’t loud and boasty, just a quiet achiever who epitomised all of the qualities which Australians hold dear. Not sure if the media is trying to take some of the shine from Barty’s success by this constant comparison – and worse, the constant reminder that Goolagong was “different” (which she wasn’t) because… Read more »

Whistleblower Eric Ciaramella: Is this the best they’ve got? By Monica Showalter Well, Happy Halloween. The whistleblower is now pretty well outed by investigative journalist Paul Sperry, and it’s underwhelming. He’s been identified as one Eric Ciaramella, 33, prep school grad, Yalie, Obama backwash, political operative, and fanatic Trump-hater. Hardly the Mister Probity concerned about national security that’s been painted. Sperry did the digging but pointed out that that the man’s identity had been an open secret in the Beltway, with mainstream media doing their darnedest to keep his name from being attached to his rather spectacular charges.

Sunday Talks: Steve Bannon -vs- Maria Bartiromo…
Posted on November 3, 2019 by sundance
Steve Bannon appears on Fox News to discuss the ongoing impeachment issues with Maria Bartiromo. Within the discussion Bannon highlights the larger position about how Trump’ America-First foreign policy is antithetical to the one-way interventionist model that ultimately provides U.S. politicians with a process to sell their office to the benefit of foreign governments. The Biden-Ukraine issue is a direct example of that process.

It appears that the list of things the Chosen never got around to inventing is growing .. of course, we are all aware of the lack of wheels but now we can add temples. churches or any form of, man-made, houses of worship to the list as the call to ban climbing/looking or approaching sacred mountains is heightening daily .. all these mountains needing worship! .. No wonder , they didn’t invent the wheel .. No spare time LOL!

04/11/2019…O/T:……I read with interest Pablo1’s Sunday post (below) regarding the indigine call for the closure of the climb up Mt Warning (the most easterly point on the east coast of Australia). I think it’s about a three hour climb for those who are reasonably fit. Apparently some 100,000 people a year climb the trail. P1 mentions a local elder Robert Corowra, who was quoted in the newspaper article that I read on this matter (Sunday Mail 03/11/2019, p. 9). Mr Corowra had a few things to say throughout the article, which I believe PP’ers may find of interest. Here goes:… Read more »
