But James, What if You are Wrong about Climate Change???? By James Reed

     If one is a rational scientific thinker, then the possibility of being wrong must be addressed. Here at this beloved site, we oppose the mainstream on climate change, global warming, you know that nonsense and hot air. But what if we are wrong, someone in an email recently asked? Is the UN and globalists right, and  should we  pack our bags and give up, living a life of drinking soy milk, instead of hard liquor? Hardly. Here is some literature discussing this hypothetical. The basic line of response is that the best way of dealing with any environmental problem is locally, not globally, because globally the problem is just too big to solve. Thus, if there is a need to reduce waste, then fine, let us overhaul the financial system, which because of its debt structure leads to the need for endless growth, much of which does not serve genuine human interests. In other words, environmentalism could be reinterpreted from the Right, and it would make more sense too.

     But don’t panic! Nobody here is saying anything positive about environmentalism, only in the logically possible scenario that we IF were wrong, the argument is far from over.

Letter to The Editor - Canberra Water for Environmental Flow?

A notice to THE PRIME MINISTER OF AUSTRALIA and THE PEOPLE OF CANBERRA.

A delegation of people from waterless western NSW is planning to come to Canberra to demonstrate to the people of the ACT how they are destroying lives and businesses across the Murray-Darling Basin.

“We intend to drain Lake Burley Griffin as an environmental flow down the Murrumbidgee River.
Just as the MDB Authority did with the Menindee Lakes.

“Then to add more volume to this environmental flow we will also drain the Cotter dam.
Just as the MDB Authority did with Keepit and Burrendong Dams.

“Then when the people of the ACT have no water for basic needs we will try to get you some bottled water.

“You must make-do with bottled water until there is rain in the catchment.

“We are very angry people so do please do not get in our way.”

The God of Chaos May Kill Us All! By Brian Simpson

     Am I the only right-wing fringe dweller who lies awake at night fearing asteroid attack? It could happen sooner than most people think, which could be a bad thing, or a good thing, depending upon whether you are a bug-eyed religious apocalyptic fanatic, like yours truly:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-19/god-chaos-asteroid-will-get-closer-orbiting-satellites-2029-researchers-warn-0

“It may be 10 years away, but NASA is already preparing for the arrival of what is being called the "God of Chaos" asteroid, which is slated to skim past the earth in 10 years, according to Express. The asteroid has been named 99942 Apophis. The asteroid is gargantuan, measuring 340 meters across, and will come within 19,000 miles of the earth's surface. It’s one of the largest asteroids to ever pass so close to the earth and a collision with it could be "devastating for all life on earth". No word on whether or not it'll wipe out all student debt, however. The asteroid will even get closer to the earth than most communication and weather satellites that are currently in orbit. These satellites are about 22,236 miles from earth. Meanwhile, the asteroid is traveling at about 25,000 mph, meaning that if it were to be slightly jarred off of its course, it could be a catastrophe for the earth. The asteroid's size and its proximity to the earth have resulted in it being categorized as a "Potentially Hazardous Asteroid" (PHA). NASA scientists are aware that the asteroid's trajectory could change between now and 2029, raising potential fears of a collision. Should it not collide with earth, it’s expected to shine "exceptionally bright" and pick up speed as it passes our planet. It’s moving so fast that it will cross the width of the moon in a minute and will be as brightly lit as the stars.”

Why are Academics Insane? By James Reed

     There is no end to the amount of bs that comes out of the universities, and in fact these institutions of ecological horror should be closed down solely because of their carbon footprint!

More On Becoming A State of the US By James Reed

     I have put the case for Australia becoming a state of the United States, primarily to prevent us being swallowed up by China. Here is an article which I cite in further support of my position, making the case that Australia cannot defend itself now. And don’t believe the Arthur Caldwell bs that we need more migrants. Technology can wipe out migrants with rifles in the blink of an eye, and this was true in 1947 too.

“Australia’s decision to buy 12 of the “most lethal conventional submarines ever contemplated” may actually leave it exposed to attack, according to an expert. When the Shortfin Barracuda was unveiled as the design for Australia’s new submarine fleet in 2016, there was excitement about its capabilities and the decision to build the vessel in South Australia. But one expert has now analysed the challenges facing Australia’s military amid the changing power dynamic in the region and believes Australia has invested billions in the wrong weaponry. Professor Hugh White’s book How to Defend Australia looks at the strategic risks Australia faces as China seeks to take its place as the dominant player in East Asia. He believes America will eventually withdraw from the region, which could leave Australia exposed and without the right technology to defend itself against rising powers including China, Indonesia and India. While America has suggested it is “here to stay” in the region, Prof White told news.com.au it had not done anything to push back against China. “We need to think about how Australia can stand up for itself in an Asia that is not dominated by America,” he said. China has put a massive amount of money into its air and naval forces and now has nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missiles and submarine-launched ballistic missiles. Its nuclear weapons could threaten American cities if war broke out. “In a new Cold War, Americans would have to ask whether saving Taiwan from China — and preserving US leadership in Asia — would be worth losing Los Angeles and Seattle,” Prof White’s book notes.”

I Hate E-Scooters! By James Reed

     I see people zipping around the street on these things, these e-scooters, and I am in fear. The other day a young punk crashed into me, knocking me down. He was off in a flash, not caring if I was bleeding or broken. Yes, e-scooters are a modern form of urban terrorism, and need to be stopped quickly so our footpaths are safe again for geriatric cripples like myself to crawl their way along, like decaying snails. Oh, these are not great for the environment either. Take note of this you punks, who think you’re oh so green while killing us old people:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-08-18-eco-friendly-scooters-a-fraud-environment.html

“However, if you look a little closer, you’ll see that they aren’t quite as friendly to the environment as they might seem. A new study carried out by researchers from North Carolina State University has revealed that getting around on a scooter actually creates more greenhouse gas emissions per mile travelled than going by bus, moped, bicycle, or foot. It isn’t the scooters themselves that are the problem – it’s their materials and manufacturing, especially that of the battery, wheels and frame. On top of that, the companies that round up the scooters at the end of the day to charge them and put them back on the street are creating a significant impact in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. The researchers made their determinations by looking at the scooter models used for the first generation of Birds. After carrying out an analysis that examined all the emissions associated with every aspect of its life cycle, they found that materials and manufacturing accounted for roughly half of the global warming impact of the scooter. The lithium-ion battery and aluminum components are one part of the question; the scooters are also shipped out from Southeast Asia or China. A further 43 percent comes from the collection and distribution process involved in recharging the fleet, while less than 5 percent comes from the electricity that charges them. The finding that half of the scooters’ global warming impact stems from their materials and manufacturing is important when you consider the fact that shared scooters are often targets of vandalism and outright destruction, which means they then must be replaced.

Nuke Mars? Only After Nuking the Earth! By James Reed

     The globalist elites are dead keen about terraforming Mars, making it into a new home for the elites, once earth is destroyed. That makes sense; destroy a perfectly good planet and then make another one from scratch, to destroy that one in time. The only problem is that conventional technology will not deliver a habitable Mars. So, what to do? If all else fails, nuke it from space, just to be sure:
  https://www.space.com/elon-musk-nuke-mars-terraforming.html

“Nuking Mars is still on Elon Musk's wish list, it would seem. Four years ago, the SpaceX founder and CEO went on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" and discussed a strategy for making the Red Planet more livable: detonating nuclear bombs over its poles. The explosions would vaporize a fair chunk of Mars' ice caps, liberating enough water vapor and carbon dioxide — both potent greenhouse gases — to warm up the planet substantially, the idea goes. This terraforming concept is apparently still bouncing around in Musk's head, because on Thursday (Aug. 15), he tweeted, seemingly unprompted, "Nuke Mars!" A few hours later, he followed up with another tweet: "T-shirt soon."

The Environmentalist Roots of Anti-Immigrant Bigotry By Charles Taylor

     On this freezing cold Melbournian Sunday morning, there was nothing much to refute until I came across this beauty from the Leftoid The Guardian, and the eternally poetic, politically correct New York Times.
  https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/aug/15/anti

“Recent mass shootings have been linked to ‘eco-xenophobia’ – part of a tradition that dates to America’s first conservationists. The environmentalist, white nationalist, and influential anti-immigration activist John Tanton died less than three weeks before the El Paso shooting. Tanton lived to see his movement shape much of modern US immigration policy, but not this latest violent turn. A hate-filled document allegedly linked to the man suspected of killing 22 people in El Paso on 3 August echoed the kind of rhetoric generally favored by the far right – and also had a decidedly environmentalist, Tanton-like bent. The document praised the Dr Seuss character the Lorax, who says he speaks for the trees, and complained about the unsustainable overuse of paper towels. It concluded that the best course of environmental action would be mass murder. A week prior, on an Instagram account reportedly linked to the alleged Gilroy, California, garlic festival shooter, he complained about migrant-driven sprawl. Months before, the Christchurch, New Zealand, shooter called himself an “eco-fascist”. Long before this violence, researchers warned of “the greening of hate”. From Tanton’s anti-immigration nonprofit network to some of today’s avowed environmentalists, across the political spectrum, overpopulation and immigration in particular has been blamed for environmental collapse for over 50 years.

Global Warming Elites Will Kill Us All! By James Reed

     Geo-engineering is the next big thing for the global warming cult, for if we can’t regulate greenhouse emissions in time, well there will need to be some high-tech solution, via changing the climate. Are you confident that the people who do not know how to solve any other social problem will be let loose to change the complex climate system? Yikes!
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-7350713/Bill-Gates-wants-spray-millions-tonnes-dust-stratosphere-stop-global-warming.html
  http://joannenova.com.au/2019/08/could-dimming-the-sun-with-stratospheric-sky-clouds-save-earth-or-starve-people/

“The plan sounds like science fiction — but could be fact within a decade; every day more than 800 giant aircraft would lift millions of tonnes of chalk dust to a height of 12 miles above the Earth's surface and then sprinkle the lot high around the stratosphere. In theory, the airborne dust would create a gigantic sunshade, reflecting some of the Sun's rays and heat back into space, dimming those that get through and so protecting Earth from the worsening ravages of climate warming. This is not the crackpot plan of a garden-shed inventor. The project is being funded by billionaire and Microsoft founder Bill Gates and pioneered by scientists at Harvard University. Indeed, the plans are so well advanced that the initial 'sky-clouding' experiments were meant to have begun months ago. This initial $3 million test, known as Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment (SCoPEx) would use a high-altitude scientific balloon to raise around 2kg of calcium carbonate dust — the size of a bag of flour — into the atmosphere 12 miles above the desert of New Mexico. This would seed a tube-shaped area of sky half a mile long and 100 yards in diameter. For the ensuing 24 hours, the balloon would be steered by propellers back through this artificial cloud, its onboard sensors monitoring both the dust's sun-reflecting abilities and its effects on the thin surrounding air. SCoPEx is, however, on hold, amid fears that it could trigger a disastrous series of chain reactions, creating climate havoc in the form of serious droughts and hurricanes, and bring death to millions of people around the world.”

National Socialism Chinese Style By James Reed

     There are a number of articles out there in internet land, putting the case that China with its state socialism, will destroy neo-liberalism.

Over-the Top with the Law By Peter West

     If things are not tough enough for our farmers, then we have this nonsense:
  https://www.abc.net.au/news/rural/2019-03-01/hay-load-just-2cm-over-width-sees-farmer-charged/10860572?fbclid=IwAR1FSvLlAXPkPv7SO3erQf_1JQTDeUR_-k74me0atCmSI6v5s8t5EcOC8kM

“A farmer in the New South Wales Riverina is $4,000 out of pocket in legal fees after the load of hay he was transporting was found to be two centimetres over-width. The drought had forced Brendan Murphy, a farmer from Ladysmith, to supplement his income with off-farm work. The job he took on in July last year was transporting 40 bales of oaten hay from Tarcutta in the Riverina to Murrumbateman near Canberra. The hay had been loaded by someone else, and his task was to drive the truck and deliver it. The financial gain for Mr Murphy from the trip was to be $230. He was stopped by the NSW Roads and Maritime Service (RMS) at Coolac on the Hume Highway where the truck and load of hay was deemed by three RMS inspectors to be two centimetres over-width. Mr Murphy was informed by inspectors he could not move the truck until the load was within the 2.7 metre width tolerance. It measured 2.72 metres at inspection. He said one of the inspectors, in particular, was not sympathetic to his cause of delivering hay to drought-affected farmers. "He was not understanding at all. He had one thing in mind and just went straight after me and there was nothing I could do about it," he said.

Another Day, Another Nuclear Accident! By Brian Simpson

  https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2019/08/09/radiation-spike-fuels-scramble-for-iodine-in-russian-cities-near-explosion-a66785

“The failed missile test that ended in an explosion killing five scientists last week on Russia’s White Sea involved a small nuclear reactor, according to a top official at the institute where they worked. The institute is working on small-scale power sources that use “radioactive materials, including fissile and radioisotope materials” for the Defense Ministry and civilian uses, Vyacheslav Soloviev, scientific director of the institute, said in a video shown by local TV. The men, who will be buried Monday, were national heroes and the “elite of the Russian Federal Nuclear Center,” institute Director Valentin Kostyukov said in the video, which was also posted on an official website in Sarov, a high-security city devoted to nuclear research less than 400 kilometers (250 miles) east of Moscow. The blast occurred Aug. 8 during a test of a missile that used “isotope power sources” on an offshore platform in the Arkhangelsk region, close to the Arctic Circle, Russia’s state nuclear company Rosatom said over the weekend. The Defense Ministry initially reported two were killed in the accident, which it said involved testing of a liquid-fueled missile engine. The ministry didn’t mention the nuclear element. It caused a brief spike in radiation in the nearby port city of Severodvinsk, according to a statement on the local administration’s website that was later removed. The Russian military said radiation levels were normal but disclosed few details about the incident. News of the explosion set off in nearby cities and towns a run on iodine, which is believed to help prevent the thyroid gland from absorbing radiation. Norway said it had stepped up radiation monitoring after the incident but hadn’t detected anything abnormal. Southerly winds and the large distance between the border and the explosion make it unlikely that Finland will detect any radiation, Pia Vesterbacka, director at Finland’s Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority, said by phone Monday. The authority hasn’t checked its air filters since the incident but expects to have results this week, she added.”

Biofuels Baloney By Viv Forbes

     Burning forests to generate electricity is probably the worst green energy stupidity. It destroys forests, creates its own pollutants, is less efficient than coal to harvest, handle and burn and has a low heat value. If all factors are counted, it will take decades of forest regrowth to match the CO2 emissions of burning high-energy coal. Most coal-fired power stations are built on a coal field with reserves to last the life of the power station. The coal is mined efficiently, the fuel is of known quality and sizing and efficient repetitive methods are used to extract and prepare the coal and convey it continuously into the power station. The most infamous wood-burning power station in the world is DRAX in Britain. It burns more wood than UK produces and more than any other station in the world. It gets huge subsidies for felling forests as far away as America, then chipping and drying the wood and transporting pellets across the Atlantic. Every step on the way causes large emissions of CO2, but these are conveniently ignored in the mindless war on coal.

Letter to the Editor - I doubt that the Stone Age hunter-and-gatherer culture of the Aboriginals achieved anything remotely comparable in its long occupation of this continent

To The Australian         As a graduate of the University of Melbourne, I am outraged that Duncan Maskell, the present vice-chancellor, has wrongfully dishonoured the achievements of the university since its foundation ("Lessons of Garma shape the future", 14/8). His claim that the university's "history pales into insignificance compared with the thousands of years of history and culture" of Aboriginals, put forward without any substantiating evidence, is sentimental and populist rhetoric. The university has a distinguished history of achievement by its scholars since its foundation, including discoveries of worldwide importance. Moreover, its history extends back through the European university tradition to the learning centres of the ancient world, Egyptian, Greek and Roman. I doubt that the Stone Age hunter-and-gatherer culture of the Aboriginals achieved anything remotely comparable in its long occupation of this continent. Maskell shows no awareness of the powerful case that has been brought against Aboriginal constitutional recognition by a number of our leading intellectuals. Has he read Keith Windschuttle's books, for instance?

Stop Climate Change? Stop Modernity!!! Celebrate Poverty!!! By James Reed

     When will the climate change madness end? Surely only with the complete shedding of Western techno-industrial civilisation.  The case in point, banning the humble sausage, one of life’s remaining joys, to be cruelly snatched from us by  … by … the climate change police!
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/08/08/wurst-idea-ever-germany-to-tax-sausages-to-fight-climate-change/

“German legislators have proposed raising the sales tax on meat from seven percent to 19 percent to fight climate change and improve animal welfare. Research has shown that greenhouse gas emissions from livestock account for a higher percentage of total global emissions than the world’s 1.2 billion automobiles, a fact underscored by some German Greens who are pushing for higher meat taxes. A United Nations report from 2012 found that the earth’s cattle population generates more carbon dioxide than automobiles, planes, and all other forms of transport combined. Moreover, the cow pies they deposit and the wind they break produce a third of the world’s methane emissions, considered 20 times more detrimental to the environment. According to Germany’s Federal Statistics Office, slaughterhouses in Germany killed 29.4 million pigs, cows, sheep, goats and horses during the first six months of 2019. During this period, Germany produced 3.9 million tons of meat, led by pork, the primary ingredient in German sausages. “I favor abolishing the VAT reduction for meat and using it (the increased revenues) instead for more animal welfare,” said Greens agriculture spokesman, Friedrich Ostendorff. The idea of raising meat taxes would be to reduce livestock numbers — as well as their gaseous output — by discouraging people from eating meat.”

Oh No! Now They are Destroying Once Green and Beautiful Ireland By Bruce Bennett

     Being Irish from my dear long departed mother’s side, the thought of the green and beautiful land of Ireland being worked over by the globalist death cult, is like a kick to the stomach. But, it is happening, and Ireland is set to “ban cars,” which is a bit different from the usual banning of guns, knives, rocks, sticks, free thought, and embrace the sheer magic of mass Third World immigration, as one headline has put it:
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/06/20/ireland-ban-cars-climate-mass-migration/

“Drivers will be forced off the roads in Ireland and the population packed into “higher density” cities under a long-awaited climate plan which will ‘revolutionise’ people’s lifestyle and behaviours, according to local media. “Nudge” policies such as huge tax hikes, as well as bans and red tape outlined in the plan, will pave the way to a “vibrant” Ireland of zero carbon emissions by 2050 according to the government, which last year committed to boost the country’s 4.7 million-strong population by a further million with mass migration. In order to avert a “climate apocalypse”, the government plans to force people “out of private cars because they are the biggest offenders for emissions”, according to transport minister Shane Ross whose proposals — which include banning fossil fuel vehicles from towns and cities nationwide — are posed to cripple ordinary motorists, local media reports. Launching the plan in Dublin, leader Leo Varadkar outlined his vision for an Ireland of ‘higher density’ cities consisting of populations whose lifestyles and behaviours have been totally transformed by ‘carrot and stick’ policies outlined in the climate plan. “Our approach will be to nudge people and businesses to change behaviour and adapt new technologies through incentives, disincentives, regulations and information,” the globalist prime minister said. “We are going to change how electricity is produced and consumed, how our homes and workplaces are heated; the way we travel; the types of vehicles we purchase; and how food is produced.”

Is White Racism Responsible for Pre-Contact South American Hyper-Violence? By Brian Simpson

     The Left have established the narrative that Whites are responsible for violence seen in non-Western countries because … well… racism …colonialism. Yes, but what about violence that occurred in non-white societies before contact with the demonic whites, assuming that the laws of causality and the arrow of time still hold in a politically correct universe.? There is a problem for their narrative:
  https://www.livescience.com/66102-maya-civilization-was-ultraviolent-before-collapse.htmls

“A hieroglyphic inscription found in an ancient Maya city now reveals kingdoms making up this civilization waged extraordinarily destructive warfare much earlier than previously thought, a new study finds. These findings may shed light on what may or may not have brought about the end of the Maya empire, researchers said. The ancient Maya civilization encompassed an area twice the size of Germany, occupying what is now southern Mexico and northern Central America. At the height of the Maya empire, known as the Classic period, which stretched from about A.D. 250 to at least 900, perhaps as many as 25 million people lived in the region, potentially rivaling the population density of medieval Europe An escalation of violence may have also played a role in the Maya downfall. Previous research suggested that during the Classic period, warfare among the ancient Maya was mostly ritualized and limited in scope, with strict rules of engagement centered on procuring elite captives for tribute and ransom and minimal involvement of noncombatants.

Fear Mass Immigration, Not climate Change By James Reed

     Europeans are not concerned much abut climate change, whatever that means but mass immigration is an existential threat, well, maybe that is exaggerating, but, still a threat:
  https://www.dw.com/en/migration-more-worrying-than-climate-change-for-europeans-survey/a-49904437

“While climate change is growing in the public consciousness, migration is still the major issue for more EU citizens, according to the results of the European Commission's biannual Eurobarometer public opinion survey. Migration remains the top concern across the European Union, according to an EU public opinion poll, although the importance of climate change is growing. Thirty-four percent of respondents in the new Eurobarometer survey view immigration as the most pressing problem, down six percentage points from last year. However, the issue topped the list of issues in 21 member states, with Malta, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Slovenia and the Netherlands having the highest proportion of respondents ranking it most problematic. For the first time, climate change jumped to the second most important concern, with 22% of respondents mentioning it, according to the biannual poll conducted by the European Commission."
