Breaking the Backbone of Australia

Since the days of the gold rush and the wool boom, Australia has always relied heavily on its great primary industries – mining, farming, forestry and fishing and their supporting transport, energy and processing industries.

First was the export of hides and tallow, wool and timber. Then came the great discoveries of gold, coal, copper and silver-lead-zinc, followed by exports of wheat, butter, meat and cotton.

Luckily the effects of droughts in the rural sector were often moderated by booms or new discoveries in minerals.

Today government royalties and taxes on our massive exports of coal, gas, iron ore, nickel, copper, silver-lead-zinc, aluminium and uranium have become the main-stays of the tax-consuming and ever-growing state and federal bureaucracies.

These back-bone industries, directly or indirectly, have always paid the wages of most of the workers of Australia.

The Backbone of Australian Industry

Every one of these primary industries must have three things –

  1. secure access to resource-rich land;
  2. reliable low-cost energy for production, extraction, processing and transport;
  3. reliable water supply.

These are the three things most threatened by today’s Chicken Littles.

Every day, vested interests, toxic environmentalists and green alarmists (often foreign-funded or tax-exempted) are using every worry they can discover or invent to break the backbone of Australia – global warming, species extinction, pollution, UN dictates, and land rights for everyone except those currently making productive use of the land.

They favour pest-ridden scrubs of woody weeds over productive grasslands and encourage farm invasions by vegan militants and media stirrers.

They prevent construction of new water conservation dams and weirs, insist in letting more stored “environmental” water flow back to the sea, and then spend billions on desalination plants to get that water back from the sea.

They close-the-gate to explorers, use death-by-delay to stop projects they disapprove of, throttle foresters and fishermen with ever increasing no-go zones, while sacred serpents or the “just three mines” policy smothers every uranium deposit discovered.

They re-define natural gases as “pollution” to be taxed, and now are driving whole industries offshore by forcing reckless conversion to high-cost, unpredictable intermittent green energy.

While politicians babble about dream-time electric cars, our huge transport fleet relies on imports of petrol and diesel refined overseas – Australia now has under 30 days of petrol and diesel supplies here.

As jobs disappear or migrate, welfare booms, and national bankruptcy beckons.

Australia is a poorly defended storehouse of under-utilised resources beside the teeming millions of Asia. Our un-appreciated assets include:

  • aluminium, nickel and cobalt in laterites from Greenvale to Cape York, to Mitchell Plateau, to Kalgoorlie;
  • rutile, zircon, ilmenite, monazite, silica sand and rare earths in coastal sands from Bathurst Island to Bunbury, in the Murray Basin and along the Sunshine Coast;
  • oil shales from Julia Creek to Gladstone to Mt Coolon and in most other states (not one shale deposit in Australia has yet been tested by fracking);
  • un-tested off-shore resources of oil, gas and methane hydrates in sediments on our vast continental shelf;
  • massive coal deposits in the Galilee, Surat, Bowen, Laura and Sydney Basins (all under green sabotage);
  • uranium deposits from Coronation Hill in NT, to South Australia and in the Harvey Range in Queensland;
  • vast fresh-water resources that regularly flood from coastal hills into the seas from the Gulf of Carpentaria to the Northern Rivers of NSW and down the Murray-Darling Rivers;
  • huge resources of free-range protein in mobs of wild rabbits, pigs, kangaroos and camels;
  • a wide continental shelf of marine life for harvesting or marine farm development.
  • Today, our Asian neighbours come as tourists and diligent observers to marvel at the backbone resources we have sterilised or neglected.

What will they come as tomorrow?

The Greenies and all the other parties trying to outdo them are wetting their panties about “species extinction” of all endangered species except one. Ethnically White Europeans. They are cheering on our extinction. Only Fraser Anning gives a damn for securing our people and a future for White children.


Scientists have just proved, via ancient ice samples, that Co2 is same now as it was 3 million years ago. The low surface atmosphere has remained constant in composition, but pollution of the face of our Earth is a disaster, with deafforestation and great rivers permanently poisoned. And then their is human excrement all over the streets of Chicago city. Be like Inky’s filthy bedroom.

Has Tony Abbott seen the writing on the wall and made the jump to the Senate yet ?
It’s long odds to believe Warringah will give the backbencher another chance .
But in the Senate Tony WILL receive the percentage required without too much effort
Be settled for 6 years and as a Senator will NOT be be a leadership threat so should get a Ministry if LNP win
Pragmatist or Gambler ? Not much time left to decide


Last night at 6.30 pm this was the state of the electricity generation in Australia.———- black coal 14763MW brown coal 3498MW gas 2856MW hydro 2405MW wind 1768MW solar nil TOTAL 25,290MW Wind and solar were 7.00% of the generation capacity at this time. Looking at these figures is it not amazing that we get the Billy B`s of this world going off their heads about renewables. Seven precent of our power last night was from wind (Solar nil), it is just like CO2 a trace gas in the atmosphere it is all too small to bother about. With this in… Read more »
