Today: 16.Oct.2019

Viv Forbes, Executive Director of The Salt Bush Club, Australia: Poor policies are taking Australia into tough times. There are four priorities for the 2019 election. Firstly: Decimate the Feral Green Snakes in the Grass. Secondly: Build more Reliable Base-Load Power Stations. Thirdly: Build More Dams and Weirs. Finally: Fight Fire with Fire. We must fix these four issues. Stop draining Australian money to support foreign agendas and the bloated UN bureaucracy. Let’s help Australians instead.

Viv Forbes, Executive Director of The Salt Bush Club, Australia: If a project can be stopped because it adds to carbon dioxide emissions every development of coal, oil or gas in Australia can be challenged. But the ominous implications go much further. The sports and tourism industries should be fearful. These industries encourage millions of competitors, visitors, tourists, officials and politicians to use cars, trains, buses, planes and ships to burn hydro-carbon fuels purely for entertainment. Car racing is out, as are new cruise terminals, stadiums, resorts, high rise hotels and fireworks. Moreover, any new road, rail or airport development will add emissions and must be stopped. But if they can stop the mining of coking coal this will also stop metal smelting, refining and steel making.

Viv Forbes, Executive Director of The Salt Bush Club, Australia: The media loves disaster stories – floods, cyclones, heat waves, droughts and fires - each one “the worst Evaaaah” (evaah since the last one). Each report of catastrophe is usually followed by a religious chant about “man-made global warming”. Pretending we can change global climate by waging a war on carbon dioxide is foolish and dangerous nonsense. When cyclones, floods, droughts and bushfires strike we need disaster-proof helipads, rail links, roads, bridges, water and electricity supply.
