A Diesel in the Shed

By Viv Forbes -- April 24, 2017

You can have your solar panels … and your turbines on the hills;

You can use the warmth of sunshine … to reduce your heating bills.

You can dream you’re self-sufficient … as you weed your vegie bed;

As long as you make sure to keep …  a diesel in the shed.

When I was a kid on a dairy farm in Queensland, Australia, we relied on green energy: horses and human muscles for motive power; fire-wood and beeswax candles for heat and light; windmills to pump water; and the sun to grow crops, vegetables, and pastures.

The only “non-green” energy used was a bit of kerosene for the kitchen lamp, and petrol for a small Ford utility.

Our life changed dramatically when we put a diesel in the dairy shed.…

No Quarter for Green Globalists

By Viv Forbes -- January 24, 2017

“Starved of public funding and propaganda, and with constant fire at their flanks with bullets of truth, the ‘invincible’ green army will soon falter and run. Give them no rest until their infamous Grab for Global Power called the Paris Climate Treaty is rejected, never to rise again.”

The Opportunity before us is to disarm and defund the Green Globalists now. The US can lead and thus encourage other nations to follow. Under no circumstances should the enemy be allowed to go into hiding or rest.

Remember Napoleon

Just 2 years later, Napoleon escaped and quickly re-mobilised his army.…

Time to Trump the Climate Hysteria (Clexit movement growing)

By Viv Forbes -- November 21, 2016

“These four actions – de-fang, de-fund, de-staff and re-educate–will cool the climate hysteria, with huge and immediate benefits for tax payers, jobs, industries and energy cost and security. It will also end the doomsday horror stories terrifying our young people. And if there is additional carbon dioxide in the air, our Earth will be greener and produce more food.”

“Consumers and taxpayers–the silent majority–have been forgotten in the growing climate hysteria. From Brexit to Trump, the forgotten have spoken. It is time to exit climate.”

The Climate Exit Coalition (Clexit) has pledged to assist any government or politician seeking to exit the Paris Agreement and to curb the wasteful and destructive UN/IPCC. Clexit has made available 190 well-qualified climate realists from 26 countries to provide scientific, business, legal and political support and advice.…
