There are ivory-tower activists armed with computers who champion a “zero emissions world” where man’s activities release zero carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.

 Victoria Aims for Zero Emissions:

 http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/climate/victoria-aims-for-zero-greenhouse-gas-emissions-daniel-andrews-says/news-story/699f4b7e2c6b166f1e20acbc3c9f344b

 These evangelists (posing as energy engineers) want to force us back to the Middle Ages where low-density green energy ruled – wood fires, whale oil lamps, charcoal forges, human treadmills, horse/mule/bullock power, weather-dependent wind mills and sailing boats, rain-dependent water wheels, intermittent energy from the sun, and rare geothermal heat.

They oppose the main thing that sets us apart from all other species – the creation of continuous concentrated energy from modern fuels such as coal, oil, gas and nuclear power, and its easy transmission to every consumer via tankers, power lines and pipelines.

They have yet to explain how our massive mobile fleets of planes, tractors, harvesters, road trains, buses, trucks, dozers, graders, bob-cats, shovels, cruise liners, container-ships, tankers, battleships and submarines will be powered and lubricated by muscle power, wind power, sun power, water power, or the energy from burning wood or ethanol whiskey.

The future for refining, processing and manufacturing is easy – they will relocate overseas.

 Still want zero emissions of carbon dioxide?

 Please hold your breath.

I hear a lot of huff and puff from the Green loonys and I note that they keep engaging in the modern world with all it’s coal energy sourced gadgets travel modes and benefits. This world keeps rolling on straight over the top of them.

the modern world is also dependant on plastics and much of it comes from oil. Like it or not we are stuck with the petro-chemical industry.

Thermal coal = Power stations, Coking coal – steel making, smelting.

There’ll never be a shortage of fossil fuels to serve the needs of the ivory tower parasites.

I hear SA wants to be fully reliant on renewable energy, VIC with zero emissions, well lets suck it a see. VIC; down grade or close your power stations, and don’t sell power across into SA and lets sit back and watch the show. Oh and a reminder for the other states close your borders as you’ll have an influx of “Carbon Deprived” refugees arriving on jackasses.

The thing is carbon dioxide is not a pollutant full stop. It’s all about nothing.

Just only need to look at the deplorable living conditions in communist Eastern Bloc countries during the Cold War era or North Korea today to see where leftist ideology gets you.

Andrews is a f#@%ing maniac enforcing his Marxist agenda on Victorians like it or not and stuff the consequences. One only has to see what this communist prick has done with the states CFA and indoctrinated our kids with Safe Schools propaganda

As I’ve always said if the brain dead lap dogs of the left want less emission, instead of turning the lights off for an hour on earth day, they should all hold their breath for an hour. Two problems fixed at once.

Quite so, we’d all be living like on Easter Island with no trees as they cut them all down to move their stupid statues!

Zero emissions in 2016 is akin to the following ‘Islam is the religion of peace’; no person with an IQ greater than their shoe size believes either. It is obvious the Leaders and the Left truly believe the populous are idiots.

The socialist s want to drive us into poverty … to control us … forcing us to live under Agenda 2030 …. depriving us of cheap energy is one of their attacks to bring us down

When the civil war comes … many of these socialist /communist Green traitors will be put against the wall and shot for treason and crimes against humanity
