It’s untrue that temperatures are rising unusually and alarmingly. Al Gore’s invented “Tipping Points” have never been specified (& 4); It’s untrue that a 97% consensus of thousands of scientists claims human CO2 is causing warming. Reality is 0.3-1.6%. Regardless, consensus does not determine science. Often, claims of scientific consensus and appeals to authority are used by people lacking evidence.

Otherwise they’d present scientific evidence ( PM Kevin Rudd and the UN IPCC Chair Rajendra Pachauri stated 4,000 scientists claim human CO2 will cause warming. UN figures reveal that among reviewers of the 2007 report’s sole chapter claiming warming attributed to human CO2 only 5 reviewers endorse the claim. Many thousands of scientists publicly state they disagree with the UN;

It’s untrue that at some unspecified future date there will be catastrophe unless humans cut CO2 output. There are no unusual weather events as claimed: sea levels, ocean acidification (oceans are not acidic they’re alkaline), droughts, floods, storms, extinctions, diseases, fires, snowfall, rainfall, … Many glaciers are growing. Not one city or ocean island has flooded despite Al Gore predicting cities would be shut down by 2000. SEAFRAME study proves no rise of sea at any south Pacific island in the last 20 years.

Al Gore said the Arctic would be ice free by the summer of 2013 yet Arctic sea ice is growing. Regardless, much of the Arctic ice cap is floating and if that melted sea level would not rise. While forecasting sea level rises Tim Flannery and politicians Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard, Greg Combet and Al Gore bought property adjacent tidal water (Appendices 4a & 12)

Beneficiaries of climate alarm pushing taxing and trading paper CO2 credits and derivatives (Appendix 14):  Major international banks eyeing trillions from trading paper CO2 credits;

UN campaign for unelected global governance. Maurice Strong, foundation Secretary-General of the UN Environmental Program and initiator of unfounded climate alarm repeatedly stated his aim of socialist global governance by unelected UN bureaucrats and abolishing national sovereignty. At the UN’s 2012 COP meeting UN climate chief Christiana Figueres admitted the UN’s “complete economic transformation of the world”;

Politicians pushing personal and/or political agenda (& Appendix 12);

Income, appointments and status of prominent academics depended on supporting Labor-Greens government on climate. (& Appendices 9, 10, 11, 13.)

Government agencies, academics and universities receive government grants;

Vested interests take renewable energy subsidies and other funds;

Extremists using unfounded fear and guilt fleece government and citizens;

Failing media networks using fear and sensational emotive headlines grab revenue;

Industry body executives personally endorsing government policy are rewarded by plum appointments on government boards; All beneficiaries are taking money from taxpayers.
Economy (Appendix 16):

Electricity and mobility are not luxuries. Today energy is essential. Raising energy prices most hurts the poor. It’s a highly regressive tax causing fuel poverty and raising death rates;

CO2 ‘trading’ schemes are not market based. They’re arbitrary caps and rationing designed to control people by controlling energy use, making trillions for banks and raising government tax revenue in all parts of our life;

Standard of living falls as productivity decreases due to artificial cost increases;

Australia’s competitive advantage was low cost energy. It’s being destroyed. Our major competitors have no CO2 taxing/trading or much lower CO2 rates with industry loopholes. Aussie jobs are already being exported;

Corruption in 95% of European paper “trading” of CO2 credits;

Instead, cheaper, reliable energy increases productivity that produces wealth and raises living standards and lowers birth rates.
Environment (Appendix 16 and http://www.conscious. and%20humanity_single.pdf)

Industry exiting Australia to third-world countries lacking modern scrubbing equipment increases real pollutants such as sulphur dioxide, nitrous oxides and particulates. Taxing Australian CO2 increases real global pollution;

Wasting funds on false UN climate claims diverts intellectual capital, money and resources from real and serious environmental challenges such as water, air and soil pollution and toxins;

Canadian environmentalist Lawrence Solomon shows CO2 trading schemes are the single greatest threat to the global environment because they make every ecosystem subject to manipulation for commercial gain;

‘Licensing’ people who harm the natural environment is not a solution. That enables the rich to keep polluting and transfers license costs to the poor by raising product prices;

Misrepresenting science lowers understanding of real environmental issues. Scientific understanding came from wealth created by efficient, accessible, cheap and environmentally responsible fuels containing carbon and uranium;

Environmental, human health and economic costs of wind-farms;

Chopping forests and diverting food to subsidised biofuels needing huge quantities water;

Modern power stations provide cheap energy to solve real environmental problems. Natural gas, coal, oil and uranium ended devastation of forests and whales previously used for energy and lighting.
Humanitarian (Appendices 16 & 14):

Taxing/trading CO2 increases global poverty. Raising energy prices locks undeveloped nations in misery and high birth rates;

Wasting money and intellectual capital on the climate scam diverts resources from serious humanitarian challenges such as malnutrition, water quality, sanitation, HIV-Aids, mental disease, addictions, hypertension and health, …;

Spreading unfounded toxic fear and guilt, particularly among children, hurts humanity’s future leaders emotionally. Indoctrination of several generations of people on an anti-human and false assumption;

Wasting taxpayer money on inefficient “alternative energies” that are proving to be “alternatives to energy”;

Destroying science that liberated humanity from vulnerability to Nature’s variability and extremes;

UN bureaucrats restrict water, food, resources, travel, mobility, finances, energy and residences using unscientific and unsustainable UN Sustainability and UN Biodiversity pushed by unfounded fear of climate catastrophe (14) The UN’s Precautionary Principle is a rhetorical trick rarely applicable to the real world. Its use signifies lack of empirical scientific evidence. It prevents development and omits the enormous opportunity cost of failing to address real environmental and humanitarian challenges and continuing misery for billions of people.
Politics (Appendices 2, 12, 14, 16 & 17):

Greg Combet as Climate Change Minister oversaw tens of millions of dollars in subsidies to Pacific-Hydro wind power company owned by the union super fund he previously directed;

Stated or implied lies and/or misleading omissions by prominent politicians including Julia Gillard, Greg Combet, Kevin Rudd, Penny Wong and Greg Hunt. These people have not been held publicly accountable by MPs deferring to party powerbrokers;

Undermining national sovereignty through UN Agenda 21 bypassing our Federation of sovereign states;

Undermining national governance through UN Agenda 21. Duplication of state and federal bureaucracies;

Stealing private property rights and basic human freedom using UN Agenda 21;

Redistribution of wealth by UN carbon taxing and/or “trading”;

Connection to international bankers’ CO2 “pricing” scheme would cede Australia’s sovereignty and governance to bankers;

Despite their documented involvement in implementing UN Agenda 21 prominent politicians such as Greg Hunt deny detailed knowledge of Agenda 21;

All prominent advocates of cutting human CO2 are funded by government. Modern government is working against core responsibilities of protecting life, property and freedom. It has been hijacked by global vested interests; Prominent academics and government agencies funded by taxpayers are misrepresenting climate and science. (Appendices 6, 6a, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12) The following advocate cutting human CO2 output and thereby cutting industry and jobs. All have no empirical scientific evidence for their advocacy. All contradict empirical evidence.

CSIRO and Bureau of Meteorology. CSIRO Chief Executive is closely connected via past and current memberships of boards of major international banks benefitting from CO2 trading. At international conferences CSIRO scientists have advocated global governance (Appendix 6);

Prominent academics benefiting financially from advocating cutting human CO2: Tim Flannery, David Karoly, Will Steffen, Ross Garnaut, Ove Hoegh- Guldberg, Matthew England, Lesley Hughes, Kurt Lambeck, Andy Pitman and Stefan Lewandowsky. (Appendix 9);

Misrepresentation by some prominent university science departments depending on federal funding (Appendix 11).
Media advocating cuts to human CO2, industry and jobs (Appendices 13 & 13a-13g):

Analysis of ABC TV and Radio programs quantifies ABC’s bias and misrepresentations of climate. Correspondence from the ABC Board confirms that the Board condones staff misrepresenting climate and science;

Fairfax Media newspapers contradict empirical scientific evidence. They resort to false implicit smears including labelling of Jewish holocaust survivor, family and colleagues as anti-Semitic, intimidating sceptic journalists and suppressing free speech. By its inaction the Fairfax Board condones smears and lies brought to its attention in writing;

SMH Environmental reporter Ben Cubby has been requested to provide empirical scientific evidence for his many articles falsely pushing unfounded climate alarm and advocating cutting human CO2. His seven attempted responses fail to provide evidence. He tells lies publicly about those who disagree with his view and helps spread unfounded climate alarm. People suffer cost of living increases on essentials. Economic multipliers increase pain. People suffer through loss of national governance and sovereignty. People lose freedom through stealing of property rights and basic freedoms.

On climate, those advocating cutting human CO2 don’t use the scientific method, have no empirical scientific evidence of human CO2 causing global warming and contradict empirical evidence. Are they meeting needs for integrity? Do they care about and respect people, especially the poor and unrepresented? Do they fulfil environmental and humanitarian needs?



Right now there is a controversy in Britain about the Paedophile Information Exchange which existed in the 1970s and 1980s.

It so happens that the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) was affiliated with the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL). And it so happens that leading figures in the NCCL at the time included Harriet Harman and Patricia Hewitt – both of whom became leading members of the recent Labour government – along with former Labour Party treasurer Jack Dromey. Ms Harman is currently deputy leader of the Labour Party and Mr Dromey is currently Labour’s shadow minister for policing.

This issue has received widescale publicity in the British media. It has been covered by Rod Liddle in The Sunday Times and Toby Young in The Spectator and The Daily Telegraph – as well as in The Sun, the Daily Mail and on the BBC Newsnight program – where, in an embarrassing performance, Ms Harman told interviewer Laura Keunssberg that a “politically motivated smear campaign” has been launched against her.

In March 1976, the NCCL issued a press release calling for the age of consent to be lowered to age 10. Yes, ten years old. No one thought at the time that women would be interested in 10 year old boys or girls. The NCCL, then, was campaigning on behalf of adult men who wanted to have sex with male and/or female children. In March 1976, Patricia Hewitt was the NCCL’S general secretary and Jack Dromey was on the NCCL’s executive committee. Harriet Harman was the NCCL’s legal affairs officer between 1978 and 1982. According to Tony Young, the Paedophile Information Exchange itself advocated that the age of consent should be lowered to four years old. Neither Harman, nor Hewitt nor Dromey saw this as a reason why NCCL should disaffiliate the PIE.

That was Britain in the 1970s and the 1980s. It was much the same in Australia – with even the ABC chairman Richard Downing (1915-1975) proclaiming that pederasts, that is men who want to have sex with boys, should be understood.

The story is documented, surprisingly in a dispassionate way, by K.J. Inglis in his book The Australian Broadcasting Commission 1932-1983 (MUP, 1983) – from which the account below is drawn. This is what Ken Inglis wrote about how the ABC’s Lateline (then a radio program) in 1975 covered the issue of adult men who wanted to have sex with young boys :

On 14 July 1975…[Allan] Ashbolt’s department devoted Lateline… to a subject never before discussed on the ABC and seldom, perhaps, canvassed in quite this way anywhere in the world except privately and in “alternative” media. As the ABC described the programme: “Pederasty, as defined by the Penguin English Dictionary, is the homosexual relationship of a man with a boy. The subject usually creates feelings of revulsion and disgust within most people. The issues raised by such relationships are discussed by three pederasts” [on the Lateline program].

And so they were, without any criticism beyond what the contributors offered of each other, as when two attacked the third for treating boys as mere sex objects.

ABC’s chairman, Professor Richard Downing wrote to The Sydney Morning Herald on 19 July 1975 defending Lateline’s pederasty program – in which one pederast essentially agreed with a second pederast who essentially agreed with a third pederast who essentially agreed with the first pederast who essentially agreed with himself that it was okay for adult men to have sex with young boys.

This is what Richard Downing (who was appointed ABC chairman by Gough Whitlam’s Labor government) had to say in 1975 about pederasty and all that – as told to readers of The Sydney Morning Herald :

…the phenomenon of pederasty seems appropriate for public discussion in a society which, if it is to be open, democratic and responsible, needs also to understand the diverse natures of the people who compose that society…. The ABC does not seek to offend but only to enlighten. To quote from a report to the British Independent Broadcasting Authority: “Society may remain civilised only if the individual learns to abhor the results of uncivilised behaviour – even though the learning process can be upsetting to him.”

So there you have it. Just four decades ago, the chairman of the ABC said that we all needed to “understand” pederasts and equated an understanding of pederasty with an enlightened society. And the leftist Allan Ashbolt – who was responsible for mentoring such young ABC leftist “stars” as Jon (Darce) Cassidy, Peter Fry, Malcolm Long, Gillian Waite and Marius Webb – believed that pederasts should be given a platform on the taxpayer funded broadcaster to advance their cause and be understood by their fellow citizens.

How strange that, in the 1970s, the ABC was promoting the needs of Australians to “understand” pederasts but that in the early 21st Century the ABC campaigned against the very evil that it had once advocated.

In Britain, Patricia Hewitt has apologised for her one time support for lowering the age of consent to age 10. Will anyone at the public broadcaster in Australia apologise for the fact that four decades ago the ABC chairman called on Australians to “understand the culture” of men who wanted to have sex with young children?


Gender shouldn’t define a career
Miranda Devine

THE hypocrisy of Labor dispatching its Emily’s List sweethearts Penny Wong and Catherine King to tear down one of the few women in the Abbott ministry made last week’s Senate Estimates hearings compulsory viewing.

Assistant Health Minister Fiona Nash, under siege over a Department of Health food rating website she had ordered taken down, got the full treatment from Labor’s feminist punishers.

She was grilled, niggled, berated and rudely interrupted until she finally snapped at Wong: “What would be better would be if you were not asking the same questions 10 times trying to get different answers.”

So much for the sisterhood.

But of course this is as it should be. Now that we are free of an incompetent government hiding behind a misogyny myth to save itself from scrutiny, let’s hope women can go back to doing their jobs as people, and not be judged differently because they lack a Y chromosome.

There is nothing more debilitating than having your career defined by your sex or even your choice of sexual partner. These things belong in the private realm and are irrelevant to career performance, yet feminists are obsessed by them.

As it turned out, Nash, a 48-year-old farmer and mother of two from Young, gave as good as she got was composed in the face of this beat-up.

Her chief of staff, Alastair Furnival, had been ruthlessly sacrificed in the hope it would cauterise the issue. He has been portrayed as an evil agent of junk food because he once worked as an economist for Cadbury, and had owned with his wife a lobbying company which used to do work for food industry clients, and does so no longer. Oh, and he once rode a bike with Tony Abbott in the annual Pollie Pedal charity event.

For these transgressions, the story was beaten up into a scandal worthy of Craig Thomson. If that’s the worst the government has done, we are in good hands.

The fact is the Health Star Rating food rating website Nash kiboshed was another Labor thought bubble. Like Fuel Watch and Grocery Watch, it was an expensive sham that pretended to perform miracles.

How is a website going stop people putting fattening food in their mouths? It’s no secret that eating sugar all day is bad for you. Wolfing down Big Macs and chocolate thickshakes every day will make you obese.

Anyway, smart phone apps such as My Fitness Pal are streets ahead of any government website in providing real-time nutritional information at minimal cost.

Users can see how many grams of sugar or salt are in each morsel, and the apps help them alter their behaviour accordingly.

That’s the hard part — the self-control — and no amount of taxpayer money can buy that.

If the Health Department is hellbent on spending money on nutritional public education, it would be far better to undo the damage done during the mad anti-fat campaign.

Sugar is the real culprit and fat-free food often is packed with sugar to make it taste better.

By all reports the star rating website, which was live for just 24 hours before Nash canned it, was a debacle, with Chiko Rolls deemed healthier than water, fruit and vegetables.

The real story is how an unelected official in the Department of Health defied repeated orders from the minister and her chief of staff not to power up the website.

In December, Nash made it clear she wanted the website delayed until it was at least subjected to a cost-benefit analysis. But on February 5, it went live, in defiance of her wishes.

Last week she told Senate Estimates the bureaucrat in charge of the website, Kathy Dennis, assistant secretary of Healthy Living and Food Policy, refused repeated demands from Nash’s office to take it down.

There is no place for that kind of insubordination in the public service.

The time for insubordination, if there ever was one, would have been when the Rudd-Gillard governments were implementing such schemes for pink batts, school halls and the NBN.

A catastrophe for every thought bubble. Yet we are supposed to believe the scandal is when a bubble bursts.


Queensland Government to axe 8c-per-kWh solar feed-in tariff to cut electricity costs

Greenie dupes shafted

THOUSANDS of southeast Queensland solar households will lose their guaranteed 8c feed-in tariff and will have to negotiate directly with retailers over a price for the energy they produce.

Energy Minister Mark McArdle will today unveil a significant overhaul of feed-in tariffs, saving other energy users millions of dollars on power bills.

Mr McArdle said removing the cost of purchasing the high-priced energy produced by these solar households would put downward pressure on all electricity bills.

Solar advocates have today slammed the decision to scrap the 8c feed-in tariff.

Lindsay Soutar, the national director of Solar Citizens, said it would be difficult for households with solar to negotiate fair deals with retailers.  "There are 40,000 homes that are about to lose the already too small financial return they receive from providing clean energy back into the grid," she said

"And there are thousands of families in Queensland who want to make the move to solar who will now be forced to negotiate directly with retailers for any sort of financial return.

"This is incredibly unfair. It is obvious that it will be difficult for individual households to get a good deal from their power company.

The state government has been accused of ignoring warnings about the legal risks associated with cutting the solar power scheme.
"They simply don’t have the negotiating power. When retailers set the rules, solar owners lose."

The 284,090 households that receive the 44c tariff will not be affected, with the State Government keeping its commitment to continue paying the more generous amount to those who adopted solar before the scheme was closed.

The move will switch the responsibility for paying for rooftop solar power from government-owned distributors to retailers.

It will affect almost 40,000 households throughout southeast Queensland that currently receive 8c per kilowatt hour for the energy produced by their rooftop solar panels.

Mr McArdle last night told The Courier-Mail that the 8c tariff would have added an extra $110 million to all power bills over six years, had it continued.

Retailers currently get this power for free from distributors and pay solar customers up to 10c per kilowatt hour extra for their power — meaning some customers get up to 18c.

"At the moment what happens is that … the feed-in tariff that is paid under the 8c is recovered by the networks and then passed through to Queenslanders in their power bills," Mr McArdle said.

"Placing it on to the retailers will mean there is no pass-through back to consumers who are not using solar."

From July 1, solar households in the Energex distribution network will not get a regulated rate for their energy and must negotiate with retailers. A new regulated rate will be set for the 10,000 solar households on the 8c feed-in tariff in the Ergon Energy area, where there is currently no competition.

Mr McArdle said removing the 8c feed-in tariff in the southeast would foster competition ahead of the removal of regulated prices in July 2015.

"I don’t think (retailers) will abandon solar customers, because paying the feed-in tariff is part of their market strategy to attract customers to their contracts," he said.

"Customers can then start to play retailers off against each other to get a better deal, and we may well find that the feed-in tariff increases with competition.’’
