Why Resources Aren’t ‘Natural’ and Will Never Run Out
By Steve Goreham

Republished with permission of The Washington Times.

Last week, the World Wildlife Fund proclaimed May 10 to be Europe’s “Overshoot Day,” the day that Europe consumed its portion of Earth’s resources for the year. The WWF, the United Nations, and universities continue to warn that modern society is rapidly depleting our natural resources. But instead, trends show that for all practical purposes, Earth’s resources will never run out. Continue reading “Why Resources Aren’t ‘Natural’ and Will Never Run Out”

We Need a Power-Water Czar

by Viv Forbes

The Saltbush Club today claimed that the new Australian federal ministry resembled a giant bureaucracy with 52 ministerial positions selected mainly to look politically correct on sexual ratios, state representations and party factions but with no one charged with solving Eastern Australia’s critical water and electricity needs.

The Executive Director of the Saltbush Club, Mr Viv Forbes, said PM Morrison needs to create a powerful new position with Ministerial power called “The Power and Water Czar”.

“This Czar’s job would be to identify, define and remove all obstacles to quickly building one or more new dams to provide hydro power and water into the Darling River basin and to urgently facilitate more reliable coal-fired power in Eastern Australia.

A Basin Plan That Works For All

By Ron Pike

Background: The incursion of the Federal Government into the State’s constitutional right to the management of rivers and their water; was the result of sensationalist and mostly false claims made during the millennium drought. Emotional sophistry replaced truth and reason as it was claimed that our rivers were dying as the result of extraction by irrigators and lack of flow in the Murray was the cause of hyper salinity in the Coorong. Claims of dying river red gums, drying wetlands and species loss were repeated with graphic but mostly misleading detail.

The Result: Is a Plan that that is costing Governments both revenue and credibility as regional communities across the whole MDB are regressing. The businesses that grow, process and transport our food and fibre are being destroyed by the removal of the vital input of water and the Government inspired racket called the water market. Incredibly, the Plan is badly impacting the environment it is supposed to be assisting and genuine environmental issues are not being addressed. Empty Dams, dry Rivers, communities without drinking water and dead aquatic fauna is the result. Continue reading “A Basin Plan That Works For All”

The Rising Sea Level Scare

by Mike Bailey

I am a retired Surveyor who spent his whole career (1965 to 2010) measuring and recording:

  • Water depths, to enable safe navigation of ships and boats into harbours.
  • Coastal features, such as shorelines and beaches, to monitor changes in depth that occur over time.
  • Near shore constructions, such as sea walls, groynes wharves, piers and jetties and boat ramps to monitor their effect on the surrounding areas.

In order for these depth measurements to have any coherence they have to be related to a common reference level. In Australia this common reference level or Datum is the Australian Height Datum (AHD).

AHD is a mean sea level datum and was established by analysis of data from recording tide gauges which operate in ports around Australia and which in some cases have been operating for around a century. (see below) I have not found any proposal that this datum be changed due to the rising sea level.

Alarmists Destroy Their Credibility By Degrees

Dr. John Happs

It was in Lima, Peru that the United Nations (UN) travelling climate circus met in 2014 for COP 29 in its futile attempt to limit global carbon dioxide emissions which they blamed for (imaginary) global warming. Incredibly, national leaders were told that, by pledging to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions, global temperature could be limited to 2oC above the pre-industrial level.

The Lima conference was attended by more than 10,000 delegates, flying in their ministerial jets with another 1,000 observers joining them. Collectively, they created a “carbon footprint” larger than any of the many previous climate jamborees. It was reported that:

Organisers rejected powering the village with solar panels on the grounds they were too unreliable, while efforts to hook the site up to the national grid – which is half-fed by renewable energy – failed due to technical problems.”

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/southamerica/peru/11292469/Frantic-efforts-to-save-Lima-climate-change-talks.html

Electricity was supplied to the conference by diesel generators since the available renewable hydro-power couldn’t cope. Curiously, no electric or hybrid vehicles were used by attendees and bicycles were largely shunned due to dangerous driving conditions. Transport came from 300 diesel-powered cars.

Oh the irony!

What Happened to Global Warming?

By David Archibald

The global warming hysteria was reaching a crescendo in the lead up to the climate confab in Copenhagen in 2009 when a civic-minded person released the Climategate emails, deflating the whole thing. Those emails, concocted from the fevered imaginations of the scientists involved.

Nigh on 10 years have passed since then and we are currently experiencing another peak in the hysteria that seems to be coordinated worldwide. But why? Why now? The global warming scientists have plenty of time on their hands and plenty of money. Idle curiosity would have got some to have a stab at figuring out what is going to happen to climate. Do they see an imminent cooling and they have to get legislation in place before that is apparent?

Meat or Lettuce? – the Diet Dictators

Progressives Say No to Meat, But the World Thinks Otherwise

By Steve Goreham

Originally published in WorldNetDaily.

Once again, meat consumption is under attack by progressive leaders. Politicians and the United Nations call on all of us to eat more plant-based foods and less meat and dairy products in the name of saving the planet. But it’s clear that most people across the world disagree.

US Senator Cory Booker recently shared his “journey” to a vegetarian diet. Booker warns, “The tragic reality is this planet simply can’t sustain billions of people consuming industrially produced animal agriculture because of environmental impact.”

Government Lying to the People About So Called ‘Non-binding’ International Agreements

 

By Graham Williamson

March 2019

Background
‘Non-Binding’ Agenda 21
For a quarter of a century the Australian government, State governments, and local Councils, have been implementing the United Nations Agenda 21 program in Australia. Agenda 21 has been implemented on a bipartisan basis without the democratic approval of the people. But it is the persistent and pervasive government campaign to falsely convince the people Agenda 21 is ‘non-binding’ (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) and therefore innocuous, which is most alarming. Clearly, any deliberate attempt to force Australians to comply with laws which have been initiated and controlled by a foreign agency constitutes what many would consider to be treasonous activity which is most definitely counter to Australian interests.

Far from being a ‘dead’ ‘non-binding’ agreement, vital provisions of Agenda 21 have in fact been incorporated into national and sub-national laws, without the democratic approval of the people. As the Australian government admits on their web site about CSD, “Australia’s commitment to Agenda 21 is reflected in a strong national response to meet our obligations under this international agreement.” In other words, ‘obligations’ to the UN come first, Australians last.

And as the Australian government also admits in their “Road to Rio+20” fact sheet, they have been busy forcing Australian citizens to comply with the dictates of the UN and their ‘non-binding’ Agenda 21 program:

Australia has participated in sustainable development discussions for more than four decades. We have signed international treaties, supported regional initiatives and enacted international commitments through new laws and policies at home

Amazingly, in apparent violation of Section 128 of the Constitution, The Australian government emphasises that when the Commonwealth lacks Constitutional authority, international agreements such as Agenda 21 and the 2030 agenda are utilised in order to obtain constitutional justification for policies which would otherwise be unconstitutional:
