Foolish politicians driven by extreme green ideology are wasting Australia’s resources.


Australia’s nuclear resources are largely wasted. We have abundant geological potential for uranium and other nuclear fuels, we know how to explore and extract them.

Unfortunately, with bans and restrictions that change every election, and approval processes that take either some years or forever, only three mines are operating. Australia is also the only G20 country to ban clean silent low-emission nuclear power.


Australia’s waste and sterilisation of coal and oil shale resources is also an international disgrace.

Solid hydro-carbon resources are very concentrated stores of value but cannot be used without temporarily disturbing other resources such as soils, vegetation and stored water.


Freehold land rights throughout the British Commonwealth once included mineral rights, and there was no conflict between landowners and miners.

Sadly, avaricious governments stole those rights, and the royalties that once went to free-holders now go to governments.

This separation of surface rights from underground rights is the source of continual conflict. Greens then harnessed landowner resentment into anti-mining crusades.


Expanding national parks and heritage areas has been a powerful green tool to prevent exploration and sterilise coal and oil shale resources as have the destructive laws that give priority to coal seam gas, water or arable land resources.

Farms can be generously compensated to relocate, forests can be replanted, top soils can be set aside or re-created and water and gas can be extracted prior to mining.

But solid mineral and energy resources can only be mined or sterilised. All past civilisations have recognised this resource imperative.


Australia’s oil and gas resources are largely untested. There was great excitement and headline news in the past when oil/gas was discovered in places like Moonie, Barrow Island, Bass Straight and the Timor Sea.

Alas, those exciting days are gone and oil exploration is being slowly killed by green bans, enquiries and the application of death-by-delay to every stage of the process.


Fracking has opened up huge shale-oil and gas resources in USA. We can be sure that China, Russia, India and Brazil will soon follow. But of course it is banned in Australia.


The EU drives the war on hydro-carbon energy. But France can afford to despise carbon energy – they have nuclear power. As can Scandinavia and many other countries with hydro power and Iceland with geo-thermal power.

Germany is a green energy poster child – but it is German coal, French nuclear, Scandinavian hydro and Russian gas that keep the lights and heaters burning in Germany.

Even the green-EU gets over 70% of its electricity from nuclear and hydrocarbons and about 17% from hydro.

Chooz Nuclear Power (That’s not a typo, it’s the name of the powerstation in the beautiful Ardennes which produces a massive 3000MW – plus some steam )

No country on Earth can rely entirely on wind and solar power but silly resource-rich Australia is going to try – all in a futile attempt to control global temperature.


Scattered tribes of aborigines once occupied Australia without using the coal, oil, gas or uranium beneath their feet.

They mined stone tools and ochres and burned a lot of hydro-carbon fuel (biomass) to clear undergrowth, promote grass, fight enemies, trap and roast wildlife and warm their gunyahs.

Australia’s Mega Fauna became extinct on their watch probably unable to cope with aboriginal spears, fires and dingos plus stressful climate changes. Aboriginal fires produced heaps of CO2 and aerial pollution, but they created vast grasslands supporting kangaroos, emus, bustards, parrots and finches.

The first Australians invented the barbecue long before Paul Hogan got here

History shows that a much smaller population could indeed survive in Australia without using mineral hydrocarbons, but life with zero man-made emissions would be grim.


And, as our aborigines discovered, if we do not use Australia’s resources, someone else will.

It is quite apparent that the majority of Australian politicians want abortion in all its forms. However, for the children that survive there is the Baby bonus (?) or is that a thing of past government failures, childcare from 6 months and dependant assistance. On the other hand there is untold Centrelink help for families (mostly imported) who have 5, 6, 7, + kids. Strange old world where you are not responsible for the decisions you make.

The #Democrats and the legacy media are now actively promoting the idea that Donald Trump should not be allowed to do any political campaigning whatsoever.

They seriously argue that the President of the United States does not have the right to advocate on his own behalf, to campaign for his agenda and his administration, and to engage in the same free speech as you or I do daily.
Let that sink in.

🦄🇮🇱👻 Ballboy, just below, in another of his typical, crappy, anti-Jewish, anti-American comments, linking to the notorious, Iranian funded, anti-Jewish conspiracy theory website ‘Veteranstoday’, attempts to spread the vicious, preposterous libel that Einstein “wanted to annihilate Germany”. Ballboy gleefully posts vile anti-Semitic crap and images from the Daily Stormer mag from the Nazi era.

There is, of course, no corroborating evidence whatsoever for such a sick accusation. But the fanatically anti-Jewish, America hating creeps behind this blatantly bogus website know there’s many credulous, weak minded fools who’ll fall for this sort of crap — Ballboy being one of them.

Why MUST They Take Your Weapons: The Red Terror Is Coming To America

Communism, as a system, is a long and continuous form of Red Terror; this brutal political construct continuously ‘purges’ enemies of the system, destroying competitors for power and enemies, real or imagined, of the Communist government. Over the course of decades the Bolshevik Red Terror exterminated and tortured millions considered too intelligent, beautiful, powerful, white and/or Christian.

With very little exception, since the introduction of the very first Gun Control Acts against the people and guns in the United States, the movement has been Jewish.

At 4PM today solar was producing only 7.0% of our power requirements. Coal on the other hand was over 60.0% of our requirements. (Figures from Global Roam.widget.) This information shows us it is waste of time even talking about solar as a reliable supply of power, and it also shuts down producing power at dusk. You hear of all these lefties e.g. Daniel Andrews Vic. going on about solar, as if it is the saviour of the leftie dream, and he gives out tax money as subsidies to householders.

Statute law is Admiralty law/The Law of the Sea, governments are in reality pirates.

Also commercial law, contract law, so it requires consent or atleast conditional acceptance upon proof of claim in order to nullify a claim against you that is false.

Just the act of voting in my mind would be consent.

I am not opposed to nuclear power in principle — it is worth looking at. However I have issues with the lead up time and Australia’s poor form with long term projects — our politicians are too short sighted – so even if nuclear power is seen as an option our politicians, to a man and woman, are one election to another, at best, in terms of vision and too gutless to commit long term

I am all for alternative energy sources but not by playing around with Windpropellers called Birdshredders in Europe, inefficient solar panels, giant batteries etc. Their manufacturing, maintenance, installations etc. is far more damaging to the environment than the protection they are supposed to be to the environment. The proper technology in the use of alternative energy is still in its infancy and will be undoubtfully achieved in the future. Let it be be developed first.

Inconvenient Study: Sea level rise likely not to drown low-lying Pacific atolls
Anthony Watts / 2 days ago August 5, 2019

A new study published in Geology, the journal of the Geological Society of America, indicates even if seas continue to rise, low-lying islands and atolls, such as Kiribati, Tokelau, and Tuvalu are likely to adapt to the rising seas rather than sink beneath them, contrary to climate model projections.

Victorian weather: snowstorm of the season heads for alpine region.

The “snowstorm of the season” is hitting Victoria with up to 150cm of powder expected by the end of the weekend.

Mount Hotham resort spokesman Chris Hocking said the ski fields had experienced 30cm of snow overnight with resort in the state’s alpine region booked out over the weekend.

“Its basically the snowstorm of the season so far,” he said. “For powder hounds it’s music to their ears.”

In South Australia, about 4000 properties were without power today as damaging winds and rain swept across the state.
