Hot air

originalLord Viscount Marquis Sir Anthony Abbott VC VD AO OA BO DFC AC DC OM MO, suppository of all scientific knowledge, doesn’t like wind power generators and says they have “other undesirable health effects”. This is the claim of opponents of wind turbine generators, that they have strange health effects as well as fading the curtains.

Professor Simon Chapman AO PhD FASSA, Professor of Public Health, University of Sydney, who you’d have to admit has the expertise to comment on these claims, has published a list of all the adverse claims that have been made in this country against the windmills.

There are 244 of them! They range from excessive yawning to delayed wound healing to autism to weight gain and weight loss – the list goes on and on for about 28 A4 pages. Here are just a few more:

  • Vomiting blood
  • Visual acuity reduction
  • Viral skin infection
  • Varicose veins
  • Urination, painful
  • Teeth, “arcing”
  • Stools, loose
  • Speech problems

244 claims like these! It’s the same as phone towers, mobile phones causing cancer, power lines causing cancer, all these bullshit claims by people who have no idea what they’re talking about.

But Lord Rabbott believes this stuff and has blocked and killed investment in the wind generation of power for the foreseeable future. The alternative energy industry bodies (solar, wind, wave etc.) have said enough is enough, we must actively fight the government to allow these industries to operate. I never thought I’d ever stand with an industry group, but I do on this one. This stupid, stupid government has to be defeated. We can’t go on like this!


In the same vein, the IPA, the Institute of Public Affairs sounds like a pretty bland organisation, yes? In fact they are an extreme right wing body which published a list of aims for the Liberal Party to achieve once they gained power. There were 100 items on this list and it’s interesting to note what’s been happening in the past 20 months since the hard right wing Australian government was elected. Here are just a few of their aims:

48 Privatise Australia Post
49 Privatise Medibank
50 Privatise and Break up the ABC and put out to tender each individual function
51 Privatise SBS
63 Privatise the Australian Institute of Sport
72 Privatise the CSIRO
75 Privatise the Snowy-Hydro Scheme

47 Cease funding the Australia Network
66 Rule out any government-supported or mandated internet censorship
69 Immediately halt construction of the National Broadband Network and privatise any sections that have already been built

Climate Change
1 Repeal the carbon tax, and don’t replace it.
2 Abolish the Department of Climate Change
3 Abolish the Clean Energy Fund
6 Repeal the renewable energy target
10 Withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol

Human Rights
4 Repeal Section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act
5 Abandon Australia’s bid for a seat on the United Nations Security Council

If you read through the whole list, this vile, evil government are working to the plan set by this shadowy bunch of hard liners. This is a nightmare. This is takeover by an unelected group whose aims are very similar to the Republican Party in the USA. Looney, pro guns, anti abortion, closure of abortion clinics and fertility clinics, cutting taxes on the rich and increasing taxes on the poorest, telling the poor they should just work longer hours, anti-immigration …. again, the list goes on and on. Another nightmare.

And the infiltration of the Liberal Party by the Italian Mafia! Notice the complete silence from the Libs? Yes folks, the Liberal Party takes the donations from the Mafia in Australia. And they have the gall to run an $80m Royal Commission on unions. I think the right wing Liberal/Nationals have far worse questions to answer.
