Dead Fish, The Murray, and Blaming Cubbie Station

The problem with Greens like Jeremy Buckingham and Sarah Sea Patrol is that, being dwellers in an alternative Starbucks-half-shot-low-fat-pumpkin-latte-with-a-dash-of-organic-breast-milk-from-an-Ethiopian-shepherd-girl universe, they are completely unfamiliar with the nature they wish so desperately to save. When they do encounter nature, they are terrified, for example, Jeremy Buckingham’s horrified discovery that natural gas (swamp gas) is both natural …

Green Power, Black Death

Paul Driessen pointed out years ago that green policies mean stopping developing nations from developing by depriving them of energy and clean water. Viv Forbes lists the ways green policies also undermine the continuing growth of the West. Greens are not only traitors to the poor, they are traitors to the environment: Greens hate individual …

Hate Mail To Pro Gay Marriage MPs

The Sydney Morning Herald breathlessly reports that members of Federal Parliament who are supporters of gay marriage have been receiving hate mail. Greens MP Adam Brandt claimed some of the mail he had received was vitriolic and said “The attacks and homophobia we have all experienced on Twitter, Facebook and the street will not deter us …

Blanchett to Australia – ‘Listen Up, Peasants’

The Australian Greens have accused polluters of an “ugly attack” on Hollywood star Cate Blanchett, who has come out in a new television advertising campaign in support of a carbon tax. Yes, but if CO2 is a pollutant, then everyone still breathing is a polluter, right? A tax on CO2 will have a serious effect on …

Bob’s a model citizen and busy man trying to save the world from the hundreds of big bad carbon polluters required by law to report their environmental vandalism to the government. Tim’s …

A Letter to Andrew Wilkie

Dear Mr Wilkie, I have been disappointed by your claims of racism in the Liberal party. As far as I am aware, no Liberal or National Party member of Federal Parliament has made disparaging claims or remarks about any group or person on the basis of race. Some members of the Liberal Party have expressed …

This Is A Bit Rude

Antipodean Greens have established themselves as the rudest on the planet, with the New Zealanders easily winning the local derby. Tomorrow Prime Minister Julia Gillard will address the New Zealand Parliament in Wellington in what her Kiwi counterpart, conservative John Key, had hoped would be a first. The Greens vetoed a plan to invite Julia …

CO2 Lunacy

A comment I posted on Tim Blair’s blog this morning: There are between three and four molecules of CO2 for every 10,000 particles of air. Anthropogenic CO2 is assumed to be about 4% of that, which comes to about 14 molecules of CO2 per 1 million particles of air. Australia’s contribution to global CO2 is assumed …

Someone Else Should Fix It

I know Andrew Bolt (and a thousand other people) have already posted these videos: But the contrast between the practice of the uncaring right wing despoilers and ravagers of the environment and the gentle earth loving supporters of Obama is just too great too pass without comment. The more I think about it, the more …

Greenies Experiment on Black Children

From Family Security Matters writer Fiona Kobusingye, co-chair of the Congress of Racial Equality Uganda: I wish I had a shilling for every time someone told me spraying homes with DDT to prevent malaria is like using Africans in evil experiments. I would be a rich woman.   That claim is a blatant falsehood. Even …

Know What You’re Voting For

A few people I have spoken to over the last couple of weeks, people who are otherwise intelligent as far as I can tell, have told me they intend to vote for the Greens in the Senate. When asked why, they usually respond by saying they think the Greens will do a better job of protecting the …
