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.

Carbon dioxide is more soluble in cold water than it is in warm water. Water and CO2 make carbonic acid (acid rain). Plants need carbon and water. So it makes sense to me that convection causes latent heat carrying water vapour to rise, then cool when it gets high enough, condense to form clouds, and release latent heat which continues to rise. CO2 then exercises its affinity for water which falls as a weak carbonic acid when the formation of droplets reach a certain size. I can’t see how it would be possible for anyone to explain how Co2 or… Read more »

Mark Latham and Kerrilie Smith get together and at least 500 P&C groups across NSW will be sent an information pack with advice for parents on identifying if their child is being “indoctrinated” by “radical gender activists” at school.
It will be interesting to see how many parents take this nonsense seriously. I doubt it will get passed Principal’s waste paper baskets.

IOWA STATE FAIR, DES MOINES, Iowa — Former vice president Joe Biden told Breitbart News on Thursday that President Donald Trump called neo-Nazis in Charlottesville “very fine people,” and insisted that Trump did not condemn them — despite the fact that the video and transcript of Trump’s remarks prove him wrong.
The claim, known to conservative critics as the “Charlottesville hoax”

I am perplexed that in this advanced society where birth control is at the achievable we have to resort to abortion. DNA is now so advanced that most abnormalities can be detected in the parents long before they should consider children. I could be wrong but is it ‘I don’t care’ attitude that is at play here.

“Economic Terror”: Trump Regime Aims to Starve Venezuelans into Submission Under both extremist right wings of the US war party, the incremental Nazification of America may become full-blown in our lifetimes if not strongly challenged by the world community. The Trump regime exceeds the worst of its predecessors. Based on the trend since the 1980s, whatever leadership succeeds it is likely to be even more contemptuous of world peace, equity and justice. Abandoning the JCPOA and INF Treaty, waging war on China, Russia, North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, and other nations by other means, entirely discarding the rule of law, fostering… Read more »

The draft bill gives social media platforms 24 hours to remove “hateful content” or risk fines of up to 4% percent of their global revenue. The bill has gone to the French Senate and could become law after parliament’s summer recess.

Funny how there’s also a growing anti-China rhetoric today from members of the government. Apparently China is now as dangerous as the German socialist party pre war.

Not a squeak about the positioning of USA missiles or the expansion of USA navy on our shores from either major parties.

Print media has started to warm the populous to the idea of supporting the USA in this foolhardy action.

The frustrating thing is that if there really was an emerging threat from any country, how could we believe the government to tell us the truth?

Daniel’s wife Jacinta, a fit and healthy mum of 35, died yesterday from a secondary infection and pneumonia, while she was battling the current season’s influenza. I heard Daniel speak briefly on the radio this morning; he was like a man lost. His message: get the vaccination while you can. The health authority who also spoke, said in addition to the vaccination, the best protection is washing your hands.

One thing I learned from living in the UK, is that it can get too cold for snow. All the weather reports tonight saying, cold fronts coming through from the south and to bunker up and cosy down. Our cats are snuggled in their baskets, the hot water bottles filled and the mugs of hot chocolate (to marshmallow or not?) being prep’d. Might have a lie-in in da morning. Love winter as long as I don’t have to get up too early. Have a good night all.
