An Open Letter to the Prime Minister of Australia on “CLIMATE CHANGE – the Underhand Politics.”


By Bob Brock

Dear Prime Minister

The Paris Climate Agreement.

  • You ratified the Paris Climate Agreement on Thursday 10 November 2016 without discussion with the Australian people and without revealing the implications or the cost.
  • You did this despite protests from Liberal and LNP Branches in NSW and Queensland.

The Cap and Trade Emissions Trading Scheme.

  • Mr Abbott handsomely won the 2013 election by committing to revoke Labor’s Carbon Tax.
  • We didn’t know then that Mr Abbott had apparently made an unpublicised deal with Greg Hunt to support a Cap and Trade Emissions Trading Scheme.
  • You broke faith with the Australian people by usurping Mr Abbot as leader in September.
  • Then, on the last sitting day of Parliament in December 2015, you enacted Greg Hunt’s bill, supported by Labor and the Greens, for “The Emissions Reduction Fund Safeguard”.
  • This bill was in effect a Cap and Trade Emissions Trading Scheme, not dissimilar to Ms Gillard’s Clean Energy Act 2011 which the people had previously rejected.
  • We only learned of it when we read Alan Kohler’s article in The Australian on May 23, 2016.

Renewable Energy.

  • Australia has an ambitious and scientifically unjustifiable target to reduce CO2 emissions by 26 to 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2030.
  • Subsidies for Renewable Energy are currently running at over $2.8bn a year.
  • Estimates of the total cost to Australia of renewable energy are up to $60bn.
  • There is a worldwide commercial failure of renewable energy projects,
  • There are no foreseeable prospects of affordable bulk energy storage technology,
  • There is a TOTAL lack of any scientific evidence justifying the closure of thermal power stations because of their CO2 emissions in favour of renewable energy plants,
  • It is essential that we have the lowest cost electrical energy technically available, and
  • Mr Trump and the Republicans have said they will wind back President Obama’s Climate Change policies. When they do, you and your policies will be left politically high and dry.

You have not been practicing Open Government Prime Minister, so now please tell us:

1. Why are you ratifying unexplained secretive Climate Change Agreements with the UN?

2. Why did you introduce a Cap and Trade ETS contrary to public expectations?

3. Why are you supporting costly and unreliable renewable energy?

4. What is the cost to Australia of these Climate Change Agreements?

This week’s Newspoll and Mr Trump’s Presidential victory are clear warnings that if you don’t start acting like the leader of a true Right-of-Centre Political Party, we will all have three years of a Labor Government and you will be yet another failed Australian Prime Minister.

Yours faithfully,

Robert J Brock.

Defund all CSIRO Climate “Research”


By Viv Forbes
Chairman Carbon Sense Coalition

It’s time to defund all CSIRO global warming activities and conferences.

For years now CSIRO and their UN/IPCC puppet-masters have claimed that “climate science is settled”. If so, why are Australian governments still wasting some $150M annually on creating climate scares and producing propaganda for a political war on carbon energy and carbon dioxide?

Australia should cease all government funding for global warming “research” and carbon-centric climate models and leave the honest, useful and difficult business of weather forecasting to the BOM, which should revert to its once-proud name and role as “The Weather Bureau”.

The neurotic focus of Australian politicians and their research puppets on the UN man-made global warming agenda has starved useful research into real factors that do affect global climate. These include cycles and oscillations in solar activity, cosmic rays and clouds, crustal and magmatic movements, volcanic eruptions, and the periodic changes in planetary orbits and axial tilts within the solar system.

Australia is an island surrounded by the vast oceans of the Southern Hemisphere. But CSIRO is mesmerised by atmospheric greenhouse mirages and largely ignores the causes and timing of ENSO oscillations, the amount and locations of submarine volcanism, and the timing, drivers and locations of deep ocean currents and upwellings.

If CSIRO and the government Universities cannot do such basic research in our region their funds should be diverted to the deficit, or applied to weather-proofing our infrastructure.



The Battle for our Grasslands and Livestock


By Viv Forbes, Albrecht Glatzle and others

Grasslands and arable land cover just 10% of Earth’s surface but (with the oceans) they produce all of our food and fibre. But the productivity and health of our grasslands, farms and livestock are under threat from global warming alarmists and green preservationists.

We are afflicted by climate crazies and methane madness. It is poor public policy that condones restrictions on grazing operations, or taxes on grazing animals, based on disputed theories that claim that bodily emissions from farm animals will cause dangerous global warming.

New Zealand was the first cattle country to propose a “livestock fart tax”. Four hundred farmers then drove 20 tractors to the Parliament in Wellington waving placards and banners saying “STOP THE FART TAX”. The proposal was laughed out of Parliament. But the war on farmers and livestock continues.
