Letter to the Editor

Tomorrow’s Grim, Green, Global Masters

quill pen

7th March 2018


Greens hate individual freedom and private property. They dream of a centralised, unelected global government, financed by taxes on developed nations and controlled by all the tentacles of the UN. No longer is real pollution of our environment the main Green concern. The key slogan of the Green religion is “sustainable development,” with them defining what is sustainable.

Greens hate miners. They use nationalised parks, heritage areas, flora/fauna reserves, green bans, locked gates and land rights to close as much land as possible to explorers and miners — apparently resources should be locked away for some lucky generation of the distant future. If some persistent explorer manages to prove a mineral deposit, greens will then strangle it in the approvals process using “death by delay.”

Greens hate farmers with their ploughs, fertilisers, crops and grazing animals. They want Aussie grazing land turned back to kangaroos and woody weeds. They plan to expel farmers and graziers from most land areas, with food produced in concentrated feedlots, factory farms, communal gardens and hydroponics.

Greens hate professional fishermen with their nets, lines and harpoons. Using the Great Barrier Reef as their poster-child, they plan to control the Coral Sea using marine parks, fishing quotas, bans and licences, leaving us to get seafood from factory fish farms.

Greens hate foresters and grass-farmers. They want every tree protected, even woody weeds taking over ancient treeless grasslands. Red meat and forest timber are “unsustainable.” Apparently they want us to live in houses made of recycled cardboard and plastic and eating fake steak and protein powder made from methane generated from decomposing rubbish dumps.

Greens despise the suburbs with their SUVs, lawns, pools, manicured parks, ponies and golf courses. They prefer concentrated accommodation with people stacked-and-packed in high-rise cubic apartments, with state-controlled kindies in the basement, and with ring-roads of electric trams and driverless cars connecting apartments, schools, offices and shops.

Greens hate reliable grid power from coal, nuclear, oil, gas or hydro generators. Their “sustainable” option is part-time power from wind and solar with the inevitable blackouts and shortages needing more rules and rationing.

Greens lead the war on fracking and pipelines. The victims are energy consumers. The beneficiaries are Russian gas and Middle-east oil.

Greens think it is “sustainable” to uglify scenic hills with whining turbine blades, power poles, transmission lines and access roads, and to clutter pleasant estuaries and shallow seas with more bird-slicing turbines. They think it is “sustainable” to keep smothering sunny flatlands under solar panels and filling the suburbs with extra power lines and batteries of toxic metals.

Greens think it is “sustainable” to clear forests to feed large bio-mass power stations, or for establishing biofuel plantations. They think it is “sustainable” to keep converting croplands from producing food for humans to producing ethanol for cars.

Greens hate free markets where prices are used to signal changing supply and demand. There is no room for fun, frills or luxuries in their “sustainable” world. They want to limit demand by imposing rationing on us wastrels — carbon ration cards, electricity rationing meters, water rationing, meat-free days, diet cops and bans on fast foods and fizzy drinks.

They also favour compulsory recycling of everything, no matter what that process costs in energy or resources. Surveillance cameras will keep watch on our “wasteful” habits.

None of this vast green religious agenda is compatible with individual freedom, constitutional rights or private property — and none of it makes any economic or climate sense.

The Despotic Green New World is coming. Climate alarm is the stalking horse, “sustainable development” the war cry and global government the goal.

    Green comes in many hues and Viv seems to ranting against an extreme militant and socialist version not represented in Australian politics. Maybe Viv could instead comment on the donations given my coal companies to Queensland politicians…..

    Simon, that’s just snarky. Though I suppose it avoids having to defend the greens, who are guilty of every one of the anti-human hatreds and campaigns Viv lists. You attempt to divert Viv’s criticism by characterising his targets as unrepresentative, but Greens really are extremely socialist and militant.

    To balance what you claim are political bribes, would you care to discuss the millions of dollars handed out in grants to green NGOs like Greenpeace and WWF, not only in Australia, but around the world? Add them up, tell us who gives more. It’s public knowledge where the bulk of Greenpeace International’s vast wealth comes from: it comes from taxes. The amount granted by governments to climate sceptics? Zero.

  3. Simon on March 9, 2018 at 12:31 pm said:

    Greenpeace does not accept money from governments, intergovernmental organizations, political parties or corporations. WWF receives about 20% of its funding from aid agencies and the World Bank.

  4. Richard Treadgold on March 9, 2018 at 1:29 pm said:

    Yes, that’s true, according to Greenpeace; my apologies. Instead, you might like to talk about grants to WWF (which you somehow overlooked), FOE, Worldwatch Institute, Earthwatch or any of these others from Wikipedia. Grants to sceptics are still zero; wanna change that?

    Send the blighters to Cuba or Venezuela or some other bankrupt socialist regime. The are no affluent socialist regimes.

    As for free elections and democracy, Winston Churchill said “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others.”

  6. Richard Treadgold on March 10, 2018 at 1:01 pm said:

    “no affluent socialist regimes”: true.
    What Churchill said: true.
    Two true.

  7. Mike Jowsey on March 10, 2018 at 5:48 pm said:

    OK, RT, you seem to imply a definitive question by your “Two True” response. I guess I may have seemed a little obscure. Let me explain. No, that will take too long. Let me sum up. (A joke from The Princess Bride – one of the great movies).

    Everything Viv cited, with copious reference by the way, is too true. Simon won’t even respond to these, but instead posits that there are many hues of “Green”, which is exactly what Viv warns us against. Simon may be a little disturbed by Viv’s revelations and I hope he is. But then he deflects to an outlier argument whereby the copious examples Viv describes are not that to which he adheres. This is an example of an echo-chamber bubble argument. Viv has taken painstaking due diligence to back his arguments and yet Simon can only whine about Viv “ranting”, yet provides no substantive argument to refute Viv’s assertions other than he, Simon, has not experience in his bubble-chamber of such machinations.

    Wake Up Mister. Be careful for what you wish. Viv’s warnings are too true. Just read “Agenda 21” , one of Viv’s links, as a good example among many. Socialism is an impending doom and CAGW is one of its tools. CAGW is an entirely unfalsifiable hypothesis and therefore an unscientific one. It is entirely politically driven, not scientifically instigated. Unfortunately It will linger on for ages despite rapid cooling heralding the onset of a new Maunder Minimum and the resultant devastation of food production and loss of vulnerable life.

    Agenda 21 is a text book for the Socialist agenda. It should be studied by every aspiring political scientist and historian as a “Where the world went wrong” moment. Whether free property rights and all the responsibility that entails trumps a moribund Kibbutz mentality remains to be seen. But I think Winston had it pretty much right.

    Thanks, Mike. There was no implied question, yet you explain, no, summarise brilliantly.

  9. Kleinefeldmaus on March 10, 2018 at 8:40 pm said:

    Well maybe this sums up where the greens want us all to go …..
    so it’s back to the future then…

    You are quite right, RT, “There was no implied question”. I was projecting my own implied question. Anyhoo, I hope I provided some fodder for Simon to chew upon and come back with something of interest. I do like his perseverance in spite of his bubble. Evolution is a time-consuming process.
