The Rich Get Richer. Good. Line up any bunch of political lefties anywhere and their key to delivering free stuff is taxing the rich. This applies to all of the Democrat presidential candidates in the USA.

Liberty Quote. So far as Feminism seeks to adjust the legal position of woman to that of man, so far as it seeks to offer her legal and economic freedom to develop and act in accordance with her inclinations, desires, and economic circumstancesso far it is nothing more than a branch of the great liberal movement, which advocates peaceful and free evolution. Ludwig von Mises

Tony Thomas on the growing problems with the wind industry – too much useless capacity, falling investment and the looming crisis of decommissioning old windmills. And a few other issues as well!

As mentioned above, WA’s power and wind farm operator, Synergy, is state-owned. It has just reported a $657 million net loss for 2018-19 (you read that right), the biggest loss in history for a WA state body. Why? Because the WA Labor government won’t let Synergy put up its prices to households by a necessary 7 per cent. Instead the politicians mandate only a 1.75 per cent rise to save their political hides. “We’ve made it clear by our decisions that we’re not going to allow electricity prices to spiral out of control,” said resources minister Bill Johnston, practising Labor pea-and-thimble economics.

    What if some other Europeans, say the Vikings, had arrived in Australia a thousand years ago, and occupied the entire country. Then the British arrived and treated them as the Aborigines were, dispossessed them, claiming they did not own the country, and generally discriminated against them. If their descendants requested a voice on the grounds that they were here first, would accepting that be racist?

    I listened to the Dennis Porter video but much of it is inaudible.

    A shame.

  3. All references to race ought to be eliminated from the constitution.

    Carbon (sic) emissions are NEVER going down. Ever …

    EIA projects energy consumption in air transportation to increase through 2050 –

    “EIA expects jet fuel consumption to increase at a faster rate than any other liquid transportation fuel through 2050.

    During this time, global commercial jet fuel use more than doubles from 13 quadrillion British thermal units (quads) in 2018 to 29 quads in 2050.

    More than half of the growth occurs in non-OECD countries, whose collective consumption of jet fuel surpasses OECD countries’ jet fuel consumption by 2040.”

    Thanks Nob, I didn’t listen and I will have a word to the organizers, it is no good having good material without adequate presentation.

    Thanks Mark M, that is one for the next climate roundup!

    You forgot Dan Andrews and Vic Labors decision to stop all native wood logging in Vic. Dan thinks that taking 10 years to do it is benevolent, apparently that will give the places that lose industry and jobs time to ‘adjust’ whatever that means. Still haven’t heard a peep from the CFMEU or anyone else. The timber mill in our town was closed down by gov policy quite a few years ago, at least 50 jobs disappeared and they never came back, never will. Funny the areas logged back in those days are as heavily treed as ever, the local mill selectively logged and had been logging here for close on a hundred years, it could have continued for another 100 years but now it’s gone, to satisfy inner city greens.

  7. Good call, sfw.

    The destruction of forestry, particularly native forestry in Australia is a tragic story of the destruction of the bush; country towns kicked in the balls and kerb stomped by inner city bugmen with no understanding of forest ecology or economics.

    Tens of thousands of lives and jobs have been eliminated for absolutely no purpose other than to salve the conscience of the misinformed, ignorant and self aggrandising.

    Swf,
    I’m only surprised Andrews didn’t tell forestry workers to #learntocode. Maybe he thinks the world will end in 12 years anyway.
