As a country becomes more industrialised and wealthy , its people enjoy longer is the life expectancy. Financial poverty and energy poverty yields short life expectancy and the Greens deliver both kinds of poverty deliberately.
Like the Islamists, they hate the West. They don’t care about your lungs and they don’t care whether you freeze either. The only interest that they feign regarding particles in the air is in how they can use them to political advantage. They are actually more concerned about the feelings of the IS head hackers than our well-being. That is, unless you are one of them . . . and even then you are only a useful idiot.
Consider the top 10 Countries with the longest life expectancy. Do you want to live to a ripe old age? By far the most important factor in life expectancy is wealth.
Wealth provides more than the fundamentals of life. Energy is as essential for longevity as is food, clothing and shelter.
Ponder the hidden energy crisis of energy poverty. Energy is taken for granted in the developed world at the flick of a switch or the press of a button. Such is not th3e case in the developing world.
The hidden crisis of energy poverty condemns billions of men, women and children in the third world to continue to live in absolute poverty because they have no access to modern energy services.
Expensive power also reduces a country’s ability to be industrial and to be competitive, thus making it poorer and less healthy. Cold ensures a lower life expectancy, as is show in this from the UK’s Daily Mail:
“Spiralling energy bills contributed to 24,000 deaths last winter, as many elderly people cut back on their heating.” The shocking toll will increase fears that the number will be even higher this year because of further increases in energy bills and warnings of a particularly cold winter. Cold homes, caused by factors including high energy costs and poor insulation, are known to exacerbate a number of underlying medical conditions in the elderly, leading to more deaths during the winter. Cold kills a lot more people than heat. It is definitely more a threat to humans than are properly designed domestic wood heaters, not to mention coal-fired power stations.
The Green Blob wanted only the most expensive power for us. With the $23 per tonne ‘carbon’ (i.e. CO2) tax, we already had, by far, the most expensive CO2 tax in the world. They wanted it to come in at $40 and increase rapidly. They wanted reliable and cheap power from coal-fired power stations stopped and replaced with very expensive and unreliable power from PV solar and bird munching wind power. They are not thoroughly stupid, and knew what this would mean. As usual, they showed no hint of concern.
And all for what? To make a difference in temperature so small that it cannot even be measured. And that is only if the models were right and things are as bad as they predicted. The ‘warming’ was by an large fictitiously created by the fraudulent BOM and CSIRO, in conjunction with the NOAA and the WMO. In a few years we have gone from having the cheapest power in the world, to having among the most expensive. Meanwhile China is building a coal-fired power station a week. Forget the deceptive argument about China putting up clean ones, an argument that pretends that China’s CO2 emissions will be going down. Like hell they will. They will be going through the roof.
Green hatred of the West is demonstrated over and over by things they say and do and by things they don’t say and don’t do. We have already seen how these meddling control freaks are prepared to let people live uncomfortably or even die from not being able to use affordable and safe power. That’s only the tip of the iceberg. They revile Australia and the West and demonstrated this significantly just this week. Senator Whish-Wilson of the Greens made this astonishing confessional comment: “I think we need to find better words than ‘terrorist’ and ‘terrorism’ because, to me, this implies a very one-sided view of the world,” Senator Whish-Wilson told the upper house on Monday night.
“Anything that creates terror is, by definition, terrorism. We use that word because it is a very simple word to use and it demonises people.”
He’s worried that name calling the head hackers ‘terrorists’ is unfair and demonising. Is he for real? Yes he is. The Greens are never on our side; the side of the West. The Green Blob and the head hackers share the same foes. One would have thought that Christine Milne, the Greens leader would fake it and distance herself and the Greens from the comments of Whish-Wilson, but she didn’t; she came back defending his comments with her trademark idiotic side-stepping waffle:
Senator Whish-Wilson was describing a well-¬understood part of counter-insurgency strategy: that extremists sometimes use the military intervention of outside countries as a tool to radicalism (sic) people,” she said in a statement.
Greens’ support for Hamas against Israel is yet another example: Greens senator Lee Rhiannon has lashed out against Israel, accusing the Jewish state of a “massacre” in Gaza as strife continues. “Israel is the aggressor here,” she told ABC radio’s Hack program.
Whatever side the West is on, the Greens will be on the other. (As will the ABC). This reliable bias is reflected in their policies on ‘asylum seeker’ illegal arrival by smuggler boats. They would actually like to see Australia’s borders opened, no doubt salivating at the irreversible social, demographic and economic wreckage that would ensue. They put on the facade of compassion, but their concern is for their political cause, not people. Only today the child senator Sarah Hanson-Young feigned outrage at the death of a second asylum seeker in custody. But there wasn’t even a hint of concern when their bedfellows, Labor, seriously weakened our borders and thousands of illegal immigrants poured in, resulting in the drowning deaths of at least 1,200 people and probably a lot more. Let’s recall what she said: Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young yesterday stood by her party’s policies. Pressed on whether the Greens accepted responsibility for the tragedy, Senator Hanson-Young said: “Of course not. Tragedies happen, accidents happen.”
If Abbott or Morrison had said that even about just one asylum seeker, you can imagine how ballistic the media would have ranted. The relative media friendliness to the anti-West Greens and the hostility to the Conservatives is actually another part of the jigsaw puzzle.
When the Berlin Wall fell, people naively assumed that the ideology it harboured simply evaporated.
Folks imagined that the communist parties around the world (including the Australian Communist Party) suddenly said, “Well, let’s all be Conservatives then.”
When visiting Sydney in 2011, Czech President Vaclav Klaus said:
“I feel threatened now, not by global warming — I don’t see any — (but) by the global warming doctrine, which I consider a new dangerous attempt to control and mastermind my life and our lives, in the name of controlling the climate or temperature.” Klaus, 70, who has twice been elected as Czech President and is its former prime minister, is one of the most important figures in post-communist Europe.
That’s from the Herald Sun: “Green agenda has parallels with excesses of communism“.
Klaus also said: “They don’t care about resources or poverty or pollution. They hate us; we humans. They consider us dangerous and sinful creatures who must be controlled by them.
The more industrialised and wealthy a country becomes, the longer is the life expectancy of its people. Financial poverty and energy poverty yields short life expectancy and the Greens deliver both kinds of poverty deliberately.
Like the Islamists, they hate the West. They don’t care about your lungs and they don’t care whether you freeze either. The only interest in particles in the air that they feign is in how they can use them to political advantage.

The following account provides insight into how the ideology has evolved into something more covert. It was happening well before the fall of the Berlin Wall. In fact our democracy was infiltrated prior to the second Great
War. This passage is from Mallory Millett:
It was 1969. Kate [Mallory’s sister] invited me to join her for a gathering at the home of her friend, Lila Karp. They called the assemblage a “consciousness-raising-group,” a typical communist exercise, something practiced in Maoist China. We gathered at a large table as the chairperson opened the meeting with a back-and-forth recitation, like a Litany, a type of prayer done in Catholic Church. But now it was Marxism, the Church of the Left, mimicking religious practice:
“Why are we here today?” she asked.
“To make revolution,” they answered.
. . . . . . . .
“And how do we make Cultural Revolution?” she demanded.
“By destroying the American family!” they answered.
. . . . . . . . .
“How do we destroy the family?” she came back.
“By destroying monogamy!” they shouted.
. . . . . . . . .
“How can we destroy monogamy?”
“By promoting promiscuity, eroticism, prostitution and homosexuality!” they resounded.
They proceeded with a long discussion on how to advance these goals by establishing The National Organization of Women. It was clear they desired nothing less than the utter deconstruction of Western society. The upshot was that the only way to do this was “to invade every American institution. Every single one must be permeated with ‘The Revolution’”: The media, the educational system, universities, high schools, K-12, school boards, etc.; then, the judiciary, the legislatures, the executive branches and even the library system.
The message to women is to behave like alley cats so as to gain respect . . . . . from leftist/feminist loons, that is. Further down Mallory says (my bold):
I continued with my new life in New York while my sister became famous publishing her books, featured on the cover of “Time Magazine.” “Time” called her “the Karl Marx of the Women’s Movement.” This was because her book laid out a course in Marxism 101 for women. Her thesis: The family is a den of slavery with the man as the Bourgeoisie and the woman and children as the Proletariat. The only hope for women’s “liberation” (communism’s favorite word for leading minions into inextricable slavery; “liberation,” and much like “collective” – please run from it, run for your life) was this new “Women’s Movement.” Her books captivated the academic classes and soon “Women’s Studies” courses were installed in colleges
Women’s Studies are now called Gender Studies. Strong families are essential to a strong society but the Left’s drive to break up marriages continues today, but with greater force. Here are the comments by Jane Caro, an illustrious darling of the Left, frequently on the ABC’s Q&A:
“It’s the world’s oldest profession. No, not prostitution — motherhood. But if social commentator and self-proclaimed feminist Jane Caro’s opinion is anything to go by, the two aren’t mutually exclusive — especially if you choose to stay at home.
Of course the leftist media is on-board with all of this. The only marriages they want to recognise are gay ones. I remember seeing a family on the news that had experienced a home invasion. The father, who provided the account, specifically told of his wife being tied up in a chair. The reporter immediately asked, “So how did you feel about seeing your partner tied up in a chair?”
The Greens (all of the same stock) go further in their attempt to confound the concept of marriage, by confounding gender and making the straight, the bent (the ‘other’). The 2013 survey page, which no longer appears, had a picture of Sarah Hanson-Young standing in a row of young people with a survey below it. The child senator even has the audacity to wear a broach of the hammer and sickle. Here is an excerpt from that survey:
National Youth Survey 2013
Do you identity as being:
Lesbian or Gay
None of these
I’m not sure
Does any comment need to be added to that?
