Australia used to have some of the cheapest electricity until the climate religion and renewables! The state of New South Wales has a make believe conservative government that has sold itself out to the climate scam and ‘Everything to do with ‘net-zero’ hands a competitive advantage to the Communist Party of China and results in a wealth transfer from Australia to Beijing. The Communist Chinese are laughing at the stupidity of the NSW Liberals. https://www.theepochtimes.com/nsws-net-zero-plan-may…The plan also promises to support the state economic growth promising to create over 2400 jobs and save households $40 a year on electricity bills. However, Federal MP Craig Kelly expressed concern over the plan. Kelly is concerned the Program could inadvertently support Chinese-backed companies selling solar panels, wind-turbine components, and batteries placing Australia at a direct economic disadvantage with China. “It’s a forced mandate that forces us to buy more solar panels, and of course, more than 90 percent of imported solar panels come from China,” Kelly told The Epoch Times in a phone interview. “It forces us to rely upon large batteries which come from China, more wind turbine parts, all of which come from China.” “The net result will be a wealth transfer out of Australia to the Communist Party of China,” Kelly added. Additionally, Kelly criticised the large $750 million expenditure, of which $195 million will go to research developing technology for sectors that are deemed hard-to-abate—essentially those that have no low-emission alternatives due to specific industrial processes (such as high-temperature heating) that rely on fossil fuels. “What happens if it doesn’t work?” Kelly said.’https://www.facebook.com/CraigKellyMP
‘If you believe that solar & wind are ‘cheaper’, then you’ve been tricked by liars and spivs that want to pocket commissions on selling the country out to China. https://www.bloomberg.com/…/coal-india-approves-32…Coal India Ltd. approved an investment of about 473 billion rupees ($6.4 billion) on mining projects as the company seeks to boost output to replace imports of the fuel, the Kolkata-based miner said in an emailed statement.The approvals include eight new projects as well as expansion plans for 24 existing mines, Coal India said. The 32 sites will have a combined peak output of 193 million tons a year, the highest capacity approved during a fiscal year, it said. The projects will produce 81 million tons annually from the financial year starting April 2023, by when the miner targets reaching 1 billion tons of annual production.The world’s biggest miner is counting on a revival in demand for the fuel as the Indian economy emerges from a pandemic-induced slump. Besides industrial consumption, the approaching summer is expected to boost demand for electricity and spur power generators to replenish their declining coal inventories, Coal India’s Chairman Pramod Agrawal said last month.India’s coal users imported a record 248.5 million tons of the fuel in the fiscal year ended 2020. Increasing domestic production will be key to weaning them away from overseas purchases, Coal India said.’ https://www.facebook.com/CraigKellyMP
The New South Wales government is supposed to be a conservative but their actions speak volumes to the fact they are NOT! Oh, well when you are spending someone else’s money what’s the fuss?
‘The NSW Department of Education has blown $35,000 on ‘culturally safe yarning circles’ funded by taxpayers.
The department’s Parramatta offices had a costly refurb aimed at providing a ‘culturally safe work space’ with guidance from its ‘Aboriginal education team’.
The meeting room features indigenous art on stools, didgeridoos, and $5,000 worth of window glazing with Aboriginal designs.
The Department’s Parramatta offices have undergone the costly refurb, aimed at providing a ‘culturally safe work space,’ with guidance from the Aboriginal Education Team.

One Nation NSW leader Mark Latham said the cash splash was ‘self-indulgent’ of the department, The Daily Telegraph reports.
‘It is ridiculous and unnecessary to create a culturally safe yarning circle,’ he said.
‘How many people in the Department of Education Parramatta offices would feel unsafe with an indigenous background? You would think it would be the most accommodating of workplace environments.’
Mr Latham said the department should be focusing on education policy amid reports NSW has the fasted falling school results in the world.
However, NSW Education Secretary Mark Scott hit back at claims it was a waste of money, and said ‘conference rooms require furniture’.
‘It’s not unusual for organisations to have themed work spaces,’ he said.
Education Minister Sarah Mitchell said the total cost of the furniture for the ‘large-scale, multipurpose conference room’ was $29,226.40 plus GST, and the window glazing came to $4641.98 plus GST.
Social media users also slammed the revamp as a waste of taxpayer dollars, saying the new room looked like it was designed for Kath and Kim.’https://www.fresh24news.com/2021/01/28/department-of-education-blows-35000-on-culturally-safe-yarning-circle/
The China virus got rid of President Donald Trump and it is also taking away our freedom to shop without government interference. In the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW) the all knowing politicians believe the QR check in will become a permanent feature for its once on a time somewhat free citizens!
‘Using QR codes to check into venues is likely to become a permanent feature in NSW even after the vaccine is rolled out. The check in system was first implemented to combat the pandemic through improved contact tracing mechanisms and to date there have been 45 million check ins through the Service NSW app. It was mandated at the beginning of 2021 that every business must use the Service NSW government system whereas in 2020 businesses could choose to use a private system. NSW Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said “as long as we get our privacy and security settings in place and put some transparency and ethics around it … then we’ve got something that the great people of our state can use with confidence”. “I do see a place for QR codes in the short to medium term”.’https://www.skynews.com.au/details/_6224984796001?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily%20Sky%20News%20Australia%20%20Newsletter&utm_content=Daily%20Sky%20News%20Australia%20%20Newsletter+CID_8f921ef9c60367d781e248d5376a0d5f&utm_source=Daily%20newsletter&utm_term=QR%20code%20check%20in%20system%20to%20become%20permanent%20in%20NSW
Once politicians grab power and the citizens lose a freedom or more the politicians never let loose.
Politics must be a very hard business to be in if one has a conscience! Why am I saying that? Well, for instance abortion. Abortion allows a woman to go and have the baby that relies on here for its life to be murdered legally. Yet, politicians in ‘The NSW Government is seeking community views on a draft Bill to improve recognition of the loss of an unborn child as a result of a third-party criminal act.
Currently, the law in NSW, like several other Australian jurisdictions, recognises the destruction of an unborn child as grievous bodily harm to the woman who carries that child. This Bill, however, seeks to specifically recognise the unique and significant loss of an unborn child as a result of criminal offending.’https://www.nsw.gov.au/have-your-say/loss-of-pregnancy-and-criminal-law
On one hand the baby may be killed with the blessing of the government, the politicians, through abortion usually paid for by the tax payer and on the other hand these same politicians want my and your views of a woman losing her unborn child by a third party! This is POLITICAL hypocrisy at its worse!!!
Evolutionists are a mighty smart bunch. They weren’t there but they throw their millions of years around as FACT. Oh, by the way politicians fit into this as well as they spend your money.
‘Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the historic declaration recognises the extraordinary global significance of the Wollemi Pines, with some of the adult trees estimated to be up to a thousand years old.
“This declaration enables us to take existing protections up another notch, and set specific legislative requirements including a dedicated fire management strategy to secure the survival of the species for generations to come,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“Prior to their discovery in 1994, Wollemi Pines were only known to us in fossil records with fossil evidence pointing to the species’ existence up to 90 million years ago.”
Just over 12 months ago, teams from the RFS and National Parks undertook an extensive operation to protect the Wollemis from extinction when the secret site came under threat from the devastating summer bushfires.
The declaration follows a $6 million investment by the NSW Government to embed ecological risk in the fire management framework and bolster bushfire protections for important ecological sites as part of the government’s response to the NSW Bushfire Inquiry.’https://www.nsw.gov.au/media-releases/dinosaur-tree-declared-asset-of-intergenerational-significance

Mark Latham is a New South Wales member of state Parliament and is one of the few pollies that seems to care for the nation. He wrote that Prime Minister ‘Scott Morrison is a fool if he thinks changing one word in the national anthem is going to pacify the noisy minority driving these attacks on Australia. Just watch the ‘Invasion Day’ idiots on 26 January calling for Australia to be burnt to the ground, as they do every year. Overnight Morrison has changed the words ‘young and free’ to ‘one and free’ – with all the problems Australia faces, that’s his priority for 2021. Not job creation, but anthem fiddling .In fact, we are a young nation, federated in 1901. Before that, we were a series of colonies and before that, 170 (often warring) Aboriginal tribes. The Indigenous had no concept of the nation state and were never a nation themselves. The nation’s anthem, a sacred item, should not have been changed without proper consultation with the nation’s people. Politicians who use the power to lock families in their homes start to think that any dictatorial decision is possible. That’s Scott Morrison unfortunately. What other changes to our national symbols does he have in mind, without telling the Australian people? The first rule for the Prime Minister should be: don’t cave in and pacify the mob who hate Australia. It only encourages them to stamp their feet and demand more changes. The rugby league player Latrell Mitchell, for instance, objects to the words ‘girt by sea’ in the anthem, saying it means ‘invasion by sea’ (it actually means ‘surrounded by sea’).So these are dumb radicals and today, Morrison has empowered them at the expense of Australians who love their country and love the anthem as it was. Shame on him.’https://www.facebook.com/MarkLathamsOutsiders/?ref=page_internal
We’ll see how the change to these three words make Australia Day on January 26, 2021 any better!
The Australian state of New South Wales has a make believe conservative government. For example, this government has not only destroyed the energy grid but is allowing the public schools to teach a hatred for those who are not Leftists! A few more years and China will call NSW home!
‘POLITICAL INDOCTRINATION RAMPANT IN NSW SCHOOLS!NSW schools are meant to be politically NEUTRAL places, so why are kids at North Newtown Public School having “woke” political ideas imposed upon them instead of doing the spelling lessons they so badly need???’ #nswpol#auspol#onenationDAILYTELEGRAPH.COM.AU
The NSW Court of Criminal Appeal isn’t a friend of the law abiding citizen! Why would I say this? Read the following and then tell me what you think?
‘The former girlfriend of Sydney siege gunman Man Haron Monis has had her sentence for murdering his ex-wife reduced by nearly a decade.
Amirah Droudis, 41, repeatedly stabbed the mother of Monis’s two children in a Western Sydney apartment block in 2013 before dousing her in petrol and setting her alight.
She was sentenced in 2017 to 44 years in jail with a non-parole period of 33 years following a judge-alone trial which concluded that Monis planned the murder but wasn’t prepared to carry it out himself.
On Thursday, the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal quashed the original sentence and imposed one of 35 years with a non-parole period of 26 years.
Droudis’s earliest release date is now March 2041 – about six years sooner than what her original sentence dictated.’https://thenewdaily.com.au/news/state/nsw/2020/12/10/amirah-droudis-sentence/?utm_source=Adestra&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=News%20Alert%20-%2020201210
The Australian state of New South Wales is a place where the Leftist Climate scammers have taken over. It is said that if it walks like a Duck and quacks like a Duck it is pretty sure it is a Duck. Same with a tax and ‘Google lists 16 synonyms for the word “tax”. Politicians have used most of them over the years. Levies, tolls, excises, imposts have all been popular choices for those seeking to hide a sneaky tax.
No one beats innovation in this field of linguistic camouflage, however, than those seeking to justify a tax to prop up dud renewable energy investments.
The NSW Government has entered this competitive field with its *NSW Electricity Infrastructure Investment Bill 2020*. Section 57 of this proposed law would require electricity distribution companies to make a “contribution” to a Fund that will be used to support investments in renewable energy, batteries and other infrastructure.
A contribution! It sounds like the spare change you chuck onto the plate at mass but in fact there is nothing voluntary about this donation. The law would establish penalties for those who refuse to pay, potentially up to 220,000 for non-compliance.
A mandatory contribution is a tax. If we put a tax on electricity distribution companies, do you think these profit seeking companies will just absorb this extra impost? Of course not. These extra costs will be passed on to the long-suffering electricity consumers of New South Wales.
Electricity prices in Sydney have more than doubled over the past 15 years. There are many pensioners who can not afford to heat their homes in winter. This should be a moral outrage for a country that is blessed with abundant sources of coal, gas and sun.
In fairness, the NSW Government says that there is nothing to worry about. The “contributions” will only be required if prices get “too low”. That sounds a bit like saying our hospitals are very efficient, they only cater for those that don’t live too long. How can electricity prices be too low? I am pretty sure I speak for most when I say I want them to go as low as possible!
Worse, the NSW Government has not released any of the modelling that would describe exactly what level this artificial electricity floor price is set at.
The reason they won’t tell us is that this evidence would blow apart the myth that renewable energy is cheaper than coal. If renewable energy was the cheapest form of power why would they need government funded subsidies from a fund paid for by electricity consumers? If renewable energy was cheaper then they could undercut the coal electricity producers and make money without taxpayer support.
We didn’t need a tax on telephones for people to buy mobiles and we didn’t need a tax on typewriters to invent computers.
What this proposed law is actually about is trying to kill the coal fired power that supports so many NSW jobs. The NSW Government’s own documents admit this, with it planning for the closure of four coal fired power plants over the next 15 years.
They would be replaced by inexpensive and unreliable renewable energy. South Australia already tried this and it ended with its entire state’s lights going out. In the end it had to build a new gas fired power plant to restore reliability.’http://www.mattcanavan.com.au/dud_renewables_will_hurt_hip_pocket?utm_campaign=e_central_bulletin_3&utm_medium=email&utm_source=mattjcan
