The assault on the environment is proceeding as planned
With the announcement the Mirrabella won’t be on the frontbench the Libs are looking for a new minister for science. http://m.theage.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/sophie-mirabella-withdraws-from-frontbench-contention-20130912-2tlon.html
Who better then their very own cimate chande denier Dr Dennis Jensen. Jenson doesn’t believe anything should be done to prevent climate change and supporter of the ultimate in climate change denier crackpots the Englishman Lord Monkton ”
“Most of the stuff [Lord Monckton] says is entirely reasonable,” Dr Jensen said.
“Some of it I don’t agree with but on the whole a lot of what he says is in my view correct.”
Should be a good combination Dr Jenson on one hand and the amped up full steam ahead rape of the earths resources on the other. Literally a double assault on the future of the planet from the cohorts of vested interest groups The LNP.
To add to the plan to log world heritage forests we also have a plan to open the worlds largest coal mine inshore from the Great Barrier Reef
“The Galilee Basin, which sits about 400 kilometres inland from the Great Barrier Reef, houses potential coalmines that would dwarf anything ever developed in Australia.
and a plan to give the green light to the super trawler fishing vessel. Labor banned it, the Libs don’t see the problem…not when there is money for big business to make.
Besides the rabid attack on the environment, the other full frontal attack of the Abbott dog whistle has taken a reality hit.
“Tony Abbott faces fresh obstacles from Jakarta on his asylum-seeker policies after Indonesia’s foreign minister appeared to reject Coalition plans to pay bounties for information that helps disrupt people-smuggling.”
It was always going to be this way of course…and simply gives legs to the notion that Abbott and Morrison held voters in contempt over the last 3 years. The boats will keep coming, but the Murdoch rags simply won’t report them, and Morrison is busying himself setting up the excuse that to report boat arrivals might be out of his hands ”
A Coalition government will prevent the media from reporting on arrivals of asylum seeker boats, with Opposition Immigration spokesman Scott stating that the decision to report boat arrivals should not be a responsibility of politicians.
Mr Morrison made the claim yesterday at the National Press Club, saying he would leave the decision to announce boat arrivals up to the three-star general who would head up his ‘Operation Sovereign Borders’ policy.”
