The politics of climate: what a difference a war makes!

By Alan Moran

President Trump, in July 2018, warned Europe about the dangers of relying on Russian energy. For this he was ridiculed, as illustrated by the supercilious faces of the German delegates.

Global investment markets have noticed that the world has changed.

The Great Reset

By Michael Rectenwald
Chief Academic Officer, American Scholars

Is the Great Reset a conspiracy theory that sees a vast left-wing plot to establish a totalitarian one-world government? No. Despite the fact that some people may have spun conspiracy theories based on it—with some reason, as we will see—the Great Reset is real.

Indeed, just last year, Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF)—a famous organization made up of the world’s political, economic, and cultural elites that meets annually in Davos, Switzerland—and Thierry Malleret, co-founder and main author of the Monthly Barometer, published a book called COVID-19: The Great Reset. In the book, they define the Great Reset as a means of addressing the “weaknesses of capitalism” that were purportedly exposed by the COVID pandemic. Continue reading “The Great Reset”

Power not Poverty

By Viv Forbes

The past was green and fuzzy – the future is black and ominous. Richard Sebrof

The green fairy-tale is over.

Even the green cheer squad in the bureaucracy and the media can sense the change. The sudden end was signalled by rolling columns of Russian tanks, quickly followed by surging prices for oil, gas, coal, wheat and barley.

For decades, one-worlders and greedy industrialists have sung the green songs – lauding wind/solar energy, worshipping hydrogen, and condemning coal, oil, gas and nuclear. Their doomsday chorus was taken up by tweeting teenagers and trendy adults in the green leafy suburbs – most of them supported in soft-chair jobs in media, bureaucracy and big woke corporations.

The Stampede of the Green Lemmings

By Viv Forbes

No country on Earth relies entirely on wind/solar energy, but Australian politicians aim to achieve this miracle.

They are leaders in the Stampede of the Green Lemmings.

Solar energy has a huge problem. Even on sunny days almost nothing is generated to meet the demand peaks around breakfast time and dinner time – the solar energy union only works a six-hour day, goes on strike with little warning, and takes quite a few sickies. Continue reading “The Stampede of the Green Lemmings”

Net Zero Madness

Brexit Leader Farage Launches Crusade Against ‘Net Zero Madness’

‘Mr. Brexit’, Nigel Farage, has launched a new campaign with Britain’s ‘net zero madness’ in his crosshairs, calling for ruinous green policies to be put to a referendum.

British political firebrand and Brexit pioneer Nigel Farage has turned his sights on what he calls the UK government’s “net zero madness”, and will now campaign for a referendum on green policies championed by Boris Johnson.

“Human Induced Climate Change” – Fraud of the 21st Century

By Dick Reaney

This is a huge and a very complex subject. The literature surrounding climate change is enormous, diffuse and profoundly contradictory. The reason; climate scientists have not exactly been lily white in their recording and reporting of information. A considerable amount of data has been distorted or altered to give them the results they desire.

My approach to this subject is factual and as accurate as my research has allowed in several years of study. The last forty years have seen massive multinational scientific studies costing millions of dollars. The scientific backing for the Global Warming scare comes from climate science, not politicians. Climate science is a weak science. The atmosphere is chaotic and difficult to define with scientific theories. Many of these studies attempt to predict the future of the climate and to quantify the effects of change on the world’s populations. The effects of Carbon Dioxide are speculative and influenced by ideological biases of the various scientists. This then produces strong elements attempting to enforce uniformity of opinion. The climate scientific community now say there is ‘consensus’ among scientists supporting anthropological climate change. This is a nonsense. In science there is no such thing. Either the scientific evidence proves the hypothesis or it doesn’t. The opinion of the scientists is irrelevant without factual and repeatable evidence.

Charging Electric Cars

This report was sent to the Saltbush Club by an engineer who checked an apartment block in an Australian capital city to see if charging points for electric cars could be installed. It is word-for-word as received except for concealing things that could identify the author (fully qualified) or the specific apartment building.

I recently did some work for the body corporate at the XXX Apartment Building in XXX to see if we could install a small number of electric charging points for apartment owners to charge their electric vehicles. Three owners had enquired before the job started.

Our research discovered: Continue reading “Charging Electric Cars”

Australia’s Giant Green Gamble on Solar Energy Toys

By Viv Forbes

By the time solar energy reaches Earth’s surface it is spread very thin – even midday sunshine will not boil the billy or make toast. And solar collectors will only convert about 20% of that weak energy into electricity. Thus thousands of solar panels are needed to collect significant energy, and lots more to charge the expensive batteries needed to maintain electricity supply overnight and during cloudy weather. Despite these disadvantages, force-feeding of “green” energy by all levels of government has given Australia nearly three million solar collectors (mainly imported from China).

It requires scads of land to generate significant electricity from the sun’s weak rays. But even in sunny weather they produce nothing for 16 hours every day. And a sprinkling of dust, pollen, ash or salt, or a few splatters of poop from birds or flying foxes can reduce output by 50%, while night, snow or heavy cloud cover snuffs them out completely.
