 SlyMo sells out to climate—farewell Morrison!

12.10.21.  For too long Scott Morrison has ducked and weaved about his secret intentions on climate change. He fudged over the Paris Accord and is still fudging on the looming COP26 in Glasgow. Will he attend? After reading this article and viewing the video you may think SlyMo will be there with bells on to swig from the climate Kool-Aid amongst like-minded zombies—while the largest polluter, China, laughs in  their faces! Morrison’s record in private enterprise is a well documented failure. His decision process is seriously flawed. The wicked dressing down of then Australia Post CEO Christine Holgate from the ‘coward’s castle’ will not be forgotten. Holgate has more business savvy in her little finger—SlyMo could only wish. Regardless, it appears that SlyMo has already sold us out! Oh, the spin and cliches as seen below sets the path. Having the misfortune to encounter Morrison more than two decades ago and departed with a growing regret—that I didn’t deck the bastard then when the opportunity arose! In keeping with Morrison’s big lie, “We’re all in this together” his latest spin is in bold—not that it needs to be!
Scott Morrison says the Coalition must “come together” to combat climate change and embrace a new global energy economy, pledging to protect regional communities in the transition to a net-zero emissions future. The Prime Minister will meet with Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce this week to finalise the government’s long-term emissions reduction strategy, which is expected to include a more ambitious medium-term target and outline a path to net zero.

Scott Morrison urges Coalition unity on ‘climate, new energy’ plans

Ahead of formal talks between senior Liberals and Nationals, Mr Morrison said “addressing climate change is a challenge that we must do together”.
“It is my job to bring people together on dealing with this big change. The world is moving into a new energy economy. We all know that,” he said. “It is now a question of how, not if, and how is how we can ensure that those communities right across rural and regional Australia can look at this change and understand that there are big opportunities and there is a way through.
“My government is committed to ensuring that rural and regional Australia transitions to this new energy economy in the future stronger, with their jobs and their communities intact, and they can look forward with confidence and they can plan for the future with confidence.”
Negotiations between the Liberals and Nationals are expected to focus on whether to adopt a net-zero emissions commitment by mid-century – in line with Australia’s largest trading partners – and if the nation’s medium-term emissions reduction target of 26 to 28 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030 should be increased.
Improved emissions projections, which the government will release in coming weeks, are expected to show Australia was on track to beat its Paris 2030 target, pushing the existing commitment above 30 per cent.
Senior Coalition sources said the government was leaning towards adopting a detailed net-zero-by-2050 plan – underpinned by low-emissions technologies, increased electric vehicle uptake and international partnerships – rather than a fixed target. Regional transition packages floated by senior Nationals MPs were expected to feature prominently in the government’s emissions reduction strategy.
Mr Morrison remains a 50-50 chance of attending the UN climate change conference in Glasgow next month, as he considers quarantine duration and domestic priorities.
The Australian can reveal Queensland Deputy Premier Steven Miles on Tuesday will warn his state would not be “partners to inaction” in the transition to net zero. Speaking at a CEDA pathways-to-net-zero event, Mr Miles will say “we will not ignore the calls coming from business and industry to help them create jobs even when others can’t see the opportunity ahead of us”.
“We took the first mover advantage. This year, and especially in the lead-up to the Climate Conference in Glasgow, the world is weighing up which jurisdictions are making the most of the renewable energy opportunity,” Mr Miles will say. “We are not partners to inaction.”
Mr Miles will say the Palaszczuk government, which earlier this year launched a $2bn renewable energy and hydrogen jobs fund to “grab the opportunities that are coming from clean energy”, is positioning Queensland to “secure a greater share of the value chain of growth industries”.
Iron ore magnate Andrew Forrest – who has invested heavily in renewable energy projects across the country including a $1bn hydrogen manufacturing facility in central Queensland – on Monday urged Mr Morrison to attend the COP26 summit.
“The head of our country, with a carbon-neutral date which we can all be proud of, will be immensely welcomed in Glasgow by all other national leaders,” the Fortescue chairman said. “Australia relies on investments and funding from all our own institutions plus overseas, and as institutions begin to withdraw their funding from companies and countries which have no climate targets, it’s going to impact the lifestyle of every single Australian.”
The Nationals held an informal partyroom meeting on Monday, attended by the National Farmers Federation, but formal discussions on a Glasgow package won’t commence until next week.
Deputy leader David Littleproud said there was “overwhelming support … to be pragmatic and understand” the government’s revamped climate change plan before a decision was agreed. “We’ve gained great comfort from what the Prime Minister’s said around the fact regional Australia will be protected. It’s already footed the bill. It’s time to make sure … there are no further impacts on regional Australia in committing to net zero,” he said.
While the Nationals remain divided over a net-zero target by 2050, moderate Liberal MPs continue to back a more ambitious plan, including a stronger 2030 emissions reduction target.
NSW Liberal senator Andrew Bragg on Monday described moves by pro-climate independent MP Zali Steggall to legislate a 60 per cent 2030 target as “political grandstanding”.
“While we all want to get to net zero, the transition must be done in a sensible way, otherwise jobs are at risk. No credible person or institution has suggested a 60 per cent cut by 2030,” he said.
“The Business Council of Australia’s target of 46 to 50 per cent by 2030 lines up with the work done by Professor Alan Finkel.”

    “Well may we say God Save the Queen because nothing will save the Prime Minister,” I think Whitlam meant.

    If only Whitlam were alive to say that now. He would actually have the public behind him. Unfortunately, he lost in a landslide.

    • Penguinite 12/10/2021, 8:37 am

      Whitlam lost because he was witless! Whitlam was attempting a Biden three-card trick. Didn’t work then won’t work now!

    • Tony+H 12/10/2021, 11:15 pm

      Whitlam was a lying Communist and he deserved to be axed! He was then thrashed in the subsequent election. His demise should be the same for all of these Premiers as well, but all the Governors and the GG have deserted their posts!

  • Ian 12/10/2021, 6:12 am

    Do you wonder why the press release spelt out in no uncertain terms that regional Aus would be looked after?

    I have a sinking feeling that he’s going to pull the plug on the folk who live outside the burbs.

    As usual. All words and not a scrap of details. Are we going to build nuclear power stations to reduce our carbon emissions? Maybe. Are we going to prohibit the use of cars for those who are unvaccinated? Likely. Are we going to ban the installation of new heating and cooling units to the masses? Unlikely.

    And the big one. If we reduce out consumption of coal, do we start having rolling blackouts as the demand continues to grow but the supply continues to drop?

    • Ozman 12/10/2021, 6:32 am

      Climate lockdowns are on the planning board, which means blackouts and no Nuke power.

  • Muphin 12/10/2021, 6:17 am

    Following the latest American trend (F*&k Joe Biden) the next time we are at a footy match or a public arena we should bellow these words.

  • Honeybadger 12/10/2021, 6:33 am

    The final nail in Scomo’s coffin.

  • Bob Ford 12/10/2021, 6:39 am

    ScoMo can attempt to ,”feel good “, in front of his ‘oligarchy heros’, but there are some powerful and popular forces in Australia , that will ensure his ‘dreams’ are trashed !

  • Cliff 12/10/2021, 7:14 am

    Never in a month of Sundays thought I’d ever consider voting for anyone associated with Cloive. Now I am.

    Scottie, whoever it is who’s crunching the numbers for you, on this issue, they’ve got those numbers wrong.

    • Graham Richards 12/10/2021, 11:51 am

      Vote for any party other than Lib/ National.
      Preferably vote for independents.
      Reluctantly vote Labor.

      Labor won’t be any worse than the Lib/National coalition. They have identical policies which are simply sold to the electorate with slightly different levels of devious immoral lies.

      Get Morrison out & someone else in. At least he new guy will then be aware that it’s him against a powerful electorate that won’t tolerate lies & BS.
      Maybe it’ll make a difference.
      If we don’t wake the political classes up they will definitely sell us down the river of New World Order.

      Emissions are simple to overcome. Announce the building of 3 or 4 nuclear power stations ( 100% emissions free) over the next 15 / 30 years.
      Stop the BS dead in it’s tracks.

      • DT 12/10/2021, 1:35 pm

        Labor?

        Have you forgotten their net zero emissions policy, as put out during the 2019 Federal Election which they then refused to cost?

        Unfortunately our choices are not great, but Labor with Greens has to be the last straw.

        Nuclear power is banned in Australia and to lift the ban would require Labor Greens support — HaHaHa

  • PW 12/10/2021, 7:21 am

    Well Mark Latham is looking better by the day.

  • JS 12/10/2021, 7:34 am

    Many years ago I stood for election for the Vic State Govt – preferences went to the Liberals. Not in a month of Sundays will I now vote Lib or Labor (Two parties one head). In fact the opposite applies. All I can do to help both major parties continue their self-inflicted fall in the trash bin of history.

  • JK. 12/10/2021, 8:26 am

    Listening to Scomo’s speech, sounds like a realestate agent trying to sell us waterfront property near Uluru and thinking he can actually do it, what a turncoat he’s turned out to be.

  • Albert 12/10/2021, 8:46 am

    Incompetence and connivance are the trademarks of the gibbering Morrison. There is a person who is a born failure and is an odds on favourite to run in the ‘Climate Emergency’ stakes. I, for one, would like that forked tongued fraud to explain exactly what ‘Emergency’ exists, what will be the benefit of Net Zero Emissions and what is going to be the cost and such lunacy.

  • Penguinite 12/10/2021, 8:54 am

    First, the world gets battered with Chinese wuflu. Now we’re being counted out in round 26 of the climate change claptrap by a referee whose numerical skills are limited and confused at best. Anyone that listens to an ageing Prince charlie, who thinks he can run an Aston Martin on whey, wine and go vegetarian for a couple of days per week to stop climate-changing, cannot expect to be reelected as our PM. Needs more than miracles!

  • Aktosplatz 12/10/2021, 9:19 am

    There’s nothing clever about committing our grandchildren (in 2050) to “net zero emissions.”

    If it’s that good and vital for the ‘planet’s safety’ we should be going onto net zero emissions tomorrow, I mean it’s that important isn’t it?

    Or has ‘the planet’ said, ‘Oh well I’ll hang on until 2050 as long as we do it then’.

    Of course not. Because the whole thing is one big damn Lie. The planet is not in danger, never has been, and even if it was, it’s outside the control of human beings.

    You know – consider the whole universe, we can’t even imagine how or where it ends. We are staring Infinity in the face and we can’t stand it. So in all of that we claim there is one tiny planet in this massive universe whose existence is threatened by Carbon Dioxide Gas currently running at 0.04% in the air. Pull the other one!

    All this tells me is that this so called Climate Meeting, like the Paris Agreement, is all about wealth transfer, nothing to do with carbon dioxide.

    It’s about the systematic destruction of our economy, the removal of our ability to create and manufacture things.

    • Pensioner Pete 12/10/2021, 10:32 am

      Well written Atko, spot on as one says.

  • masalai 12/10/2021, 9:44 am

    Morrison is just the slimiest of slimy prick politicians

  • Lorraine 12/10/2021, 10:07 am

    That’s it for me, what another bastard and his lies is the Scotty….well Scotty you,will not get my vote, I am in a Nationals seat , if Barnaby goes along with him what a double sell out that will be…..My trust zero I joined the UAP yesterday , have believed in and voted Liberal my whole life,,,I am a member of the United Australia Party received my membership number by email today. THEY REQUIRE ME TO CONVINCE 5 people .so posters on MM join me and join up

    • Pensioner Pete 12/10/2021, 10:31 am

      Congratulations are in order for you Lorraine, I am waiting for a response from UAP regarding my issue being ‘silent on the roll’, once sorted I will go from there.

      • DT 12/10/2021, 1:39 pm

        Remind us, how much money did Clive spend in 2019 and how many seats did his party pick up?

        I keep posting that minor parties, let alone very minor parties cannot form government, the system is against them (preferential voting) and they are under resourced, even Clive has the money but not the party machinery.

      • Pensioner Pete 12/10/2021, 4:09 pm

        DT: Continuing to vote for the major parties simply will not cut the mustard, we must, all of us, support those minor parties which support Australia, and going on what is available, then UAP, One Nation and those who are speaking up for us, deserve our vote.

        Not enough will gain seats in parliament, however, there will be enough to do as Don Chipp’s Democrats claimed so long ago, to ‘keep the bastards honest’. In this case, to apply a blowtorch to the major parties, just like Pauline Hanson and Malcolm Roberts – and lately Craig Kelly are outstanding in their support of Australians whilst showing up the lies being spewed forth by the majors.

    • Aktosplatz 12/10/2021, 12:18 pm

      I don’t mind filling out every square on the ballot paper (especially the Senate) to make sure my votes do NOT go to the Greens, Labor, or the LNP. I will be looking for Lib Dems (Campbell Newman), One Nation, and the United Australia Party.

      BTW Lorraine, I have not voted LNP since Tony Abbott was betrayed in 2015 (remember the ‘Delcon’ Label from the exiled Miranda Devine?)

  • DT 12/10/2021, 10:37 am

    It is important to understand that the climate based hoax is a powerful global movement that has captured governments and private sector support, and including the “crony capitalists” who create more wealth for themselves changing our world: eg; transition to renewable unreliable energy, transition to electric vehicles, issuing water licences and controlling water usage including allowing “environmental water flows” from dams in the middle of drought years and much more, carbon tax/emissions trading schemes another.

    The various self interest groups are many and varied and range from UN based politics often called “new world order” and “one world government” through the private sector of wealth seekers, other “green” groups and fellow travellers on the left, etc.

    We need to consider how important international trade and defence relationships are internationally and other pressures, right now the leaders of our two main allies, UK and US, applying pressure to the Commonwealth of Australia Federal Government to step into line, “Build Back Better” and other slogans, the non-government organisation World Economic Forum objectives and influence.

    It is worrying to list all the non-government organisations formed to put pressure on and influence the nations of the world, it is a long list even the UN based or associated organisations but then add the others. And then consider the infiltration into the affairs of nations in education, in restricting economies, UN Agenda 21 now 30, the Lima Agreement to hand over most of manufacturing industry to developing nations, China for example.

    This has been developing since the UN was established after WW2 and has been gaining momentum since around the time Whitlam Labor formed government, they signed the Lima Agreement in 1975, Keating Labor signed Agenda 21.

    I read a comment at Michael Smith News yesterday that made good sense, believe it or not but the Morrison Government is not like the Turnbull Government and LINO leftists although some of the LINO remain in Federal and State parliaments today, but now in the minority, but unfortunately still influential. The appointment of the new NSW Premier who is centre-right indicates that the LINO left is no longer all powerful.

    I will find the article and post it here.

    • Aktosplatz 12/10/2021, 12:23 pm

      And DT, don’t forget we are up to our eyes in Debt. And as the Good Book says, ‘The borrower is servant to the lender”.

      I am convinced that was why John Howard and Peter Costello made damn sure the National Debt was always cleared.

      Now you can really see how much we have been betrayed.

      • DT 12/10/2021, 1:23 pm

        Aktosplatz firstly I am not a believer in debt unless it is borrowed for good purposes like new infrastructure, nation building. And noting that interest on debt becomes an every financial year burden on budgets and therefore interest payments are monies not available for running government.

        However, despite our by world standards small 26 million population and being 2 per cent of global economy Australia is a very wealthy nation.

        Our minerals and energy assets place our nation very high on the richest list of nations, with most in the ground yet to be exploited, and therefore available as and when needed as long as world demand holds up.

        Treasurer Costello sold a large amount of our gold bar reserves and Labor criticised the very profitable sale, they cunningly said it should have been sold for more, well gold prices were going up at the time. Costello told them that regardless a substantial profit on sale was realised. And that Australia does not need a large gold bar reserve because our known not yet mined reserves as huge for gold and silver.

        So repaying public Federal debt and State debt is important in terms of keeping budgets under control but ignoring the assets backing. This is why Treasurer Swan said Australia could handle much more public debt and that at the time comparing debt with GDP Australia was not in a bad position compared to other developed nations at that time.

        So when the COVID-19 pandemic related debt funded support for employers and employees, funding of pandemic related other expenses, is mentioned as a black mark against the present Federal Government I take little notice, it’s political games.

  • DT 12/10/2021, 10:40 am

    From Michael Smith News yesterday …

    seeker of truth said…
    PM Morrison can play the same game on our coal production for local consumption and for export as Joe Biden is playing. He is not reducing production of this so called dirty fossil fuel. He has in fact overseen its increase by 21% under his administration. If the UN is prepared to accept this US action on climate change then it must accept what Australia is doing with its coal industry.

    “The surging, post-pandemic U.S. economy is driving an unexpected boom in coal, the latest sign that demand for the dirtiest fossil fuel remains resilient.

    American coal production this year will swell 15% to meet stronger demand for electricity at home and abroad, according to the U.S. Energy Department’s July outlook. That would be the most since at least 1990 and nearly double the 8% increase projected in May, when the economic rebound was still in earlier stages of recovery.

    The shift underscores the vicious circle of climate change as more extreme temperatures drive power demand just as extensive drought cuts output from hydropower dams. That prompts utilities to burn more of the dirtiest fossil fuel, a pattern also exacerbated by high natural gas prices. At the same time, key exporters including Australia and Colombia face supply problems that have helped lift global prices to a 10-year high and added to international demand for U.S. coal exports.

    “Everything that could happen that’s positive from the demand standpoint is happening,” said Andrew Cosgrove, a mining analyst with Bloomberg Intelligence. The stars are aligning.”

    That growing appetite will help boost U.S. exports of the fuel by 21% this year, and another 19% in 2022, the Energy Department said Wednesday in its latest short-term outlook report. The department said its projections are based on forecasting firm IHS Markit’s projection that the world’s largest economy will grow by 7.4% in 2021…..”

    https://www.rigzone.com/news/wire/biden_admin_expects_usa_coal_output_boom-09-jul-2021-165908-article/

    Paul Murray highlighted Biden’s hypocrisy in his Sky News show last night. Because renewables as an energy resource have been found wanting in these cold snaps in both Europe and other parts of the world, the fall back has been to coal fired power stations.

    Very little of this increase of coal exports by the USA has made the main stream media. The USA itself has had to turn to coal fired power stations because of Biden’s stance on fracking for gas and also the pipeline from the Alaskan oilfields. The Biden administration overlooked that there was nothing to fill the gap with these losses from the supply chain because of demand for energy in extreme weather and increase consumption by industry.

    At the same time, the USA is exporting oil to India which is adding to fuel shortages at home.

    https://www.reuters.com/world/middle-east/latam-us-shares-indias-oil-imports-rise-mideast-africa-down-2021-09-21/

    It is a case of “Do as I say, don’t do as I do.” with the US and Joe Biden.

    Australia will meet its climate change targets on emissions in its own way and it won’t be wholly dependent on solar and wind turbine farms and rooftop solar panels. We are smarter than that. Our agriculture and our dairy and livestock industries will have the smarts to reduce their emissions by not culling herds but by what the animals consume. We are now acquiring the smarts as to energy required to run the mining industry, with hydrogen fuel very much in the mix.

    Morrison hasn’t given into the climate change zealots at the UN and in Australia (ie Rudd and Turnbull). He is making his own mark with his own style. It is nothing like the ALP’s failed election policy.

    • Aktosplatz 12/10/2021, 12:27 pm

      The other thing is that those oh-so-green Solar Panels are manufactured by grinding COAL with Metasilicate (like sand) and fusing them together at 1300 deg C (energy certainly not from wind or solar)

      That amplifies this farce even more. They must think we are as stupid as they are.

      • DT 12/10/2021, 1:32 pm

        They are not stupid, they know what they are doing and choose to ignore the facts because the facts do not support the globalism based political agendas.

        However it would matter not who was the PM at this time, and therefore which major party was governing (or in Labor’s case attempting to govern) the pressure from the climate hoax industry would be the same, all determined to control and manage nations. And exploit them and the people.

        Of course so called renewables are unreliable, remove direct subsidies for profit and handicapping other electricity supply sources to favour wind and solar businesses, and those businesses would not exist. Germany was first to find out that up to 30 per cent renewable energy input to a grid is manageable, more than 30 per cent and destabilising increases. But using power stations and no toys to disrupt supply and grids remain stable regardless of wind or sunshine.

        There are several indicators that as usual have not been widely reported that PM Morrison is resisting the pressure and offering alternatives to not give the globalists a credible argument. Like pointing out that Australia met the Kyoto emissions reduction targets and is on track to meet Paris. One of the very few nations that has. So being asked to do more is unfair and they should put their own nations in order first.

  • Disgruntled 12/10/2021, 10:49 am

    Fully agree Akto @ 9:19 am;
    Your second paragraph is something that should be put to and asked of each and every politician that espouses this rubbish; The responses (if any) would be priceless entertainment to watch.
    re Sky last night; Now most here would be aware that I had a bit of regard for Joel Fitzgibbon as a partly straight talker; Cripes last night he shat the bed and when further dialogue from Matt Canavan ensued Joel kept on shatting; non stop. He wouldn’t (read here couldn’t) answer any queries put to him by Matt.
    Matt Canavan always make a lot of sense the way he describes things while Barnaby has gone real weak and shakey at the knees (maybe he is forced to go that way now) Rowan Dean every week comes out with more and more examples of climate “cold” records being broken; Hey that is a bloody good sign that the world is going to fry don’t you think!

    Now we see (I guess the climate fanatical fraudsters have this organised) lots and lots of people out screaming and marching for climate action. All of them are as climate intelligent as Greta but they all want to join in and be part of the crowd without actually knowing what they are out for. This sort of thing will effect SlyMo’s thinking and he is just gonna go with the crowd. Something that he has proven that he excells at!

    Now we have that geriatric senile old fool Charlie jumping on the bandwaggon; He has always been an idiot starting when he hooked up with Diana while he was sinking it in Camilla; she must be all right (for something at least!) as there wasn’t much else going for her. One might say that maybe has the same needs as what allegedly his brother had; Time he keeps his nose out of serious business!

    All one hears now is the frantic statement “we are all going to die”. How and when? Of course we are all going to die, that is what everyone does AND I sure would like some full answers and explanations of what Matt Canavan is always on about and the whole general public should be told.

    • Disgruntled 12/10/2021, 11:39 am

      RE. the Charlie bit; here is a reasonable vid to watch if you have time; from 10 on he talks about Australia a bit; have a watch and get your personal opinions; Prince Charles tells BBC his Aston Martin runs on wine and cheese – BBC News

      Here is one of the comments.;>> I appreciate how tough it must be – he’s doing his best. The private helicopter to get to Norfolk is kept maintained so it’s as efficient as it can be. The Jet to fly him to climate change conferences too uses the latest, cleanest technologies – while his fleet of luxury cars have all been upgraded to the newest technologies. It’s a shame everyone else does not follow his highness’ lead.

        No wonder the Queen is hanging on, I’m sure it’s all over Red Rover for the BRF once she departs this life.

        Charles, Andrew, Harry, and even William have decided to venture into political matters, something the Queen has never done. They will pay for their meddling in politics.

        They will be the last so-called Royals, thank goodness, can’t stand them.

    One is reminded of turnbull each time an expensive “turnbull” lamp globe on the new selection has to be replaced, and for some time now when a turnbull blows, his acolyte in morrison is also remembered. One must always remember that religion can be the last refuge of scoundrels, the fringe ones attract some of the worst, and morrison proves it.
