The Climate - according to Peter Temple.



The Climate.


Peter Temple is the founder of the “Science of Prediction through Cycles” Association. His organisation provides advise on how the economy, specific businesses, climate, social moods, trends and a host of other important aspects of the economic landscape are affected by cycles.  He says:


“Everything that happens on earth is a result of what happens in the rest of the universe. Our weather is a result of the movement of the planets, Sun, and Milky Way. The changing climate on Earth, which is cyclical, influences our actions. The stock market, economy, governments, and our health and well-being are dramatically affected by events beyond our control.


The climate on earth over the long term is really quite predicable. By looking back through history (through core samples, tree rings, fossils, etc), we’ve determined that there are major climate patterns that cycle every 25, 100, 500, and 1000 years. We’re at the cusp of a new 500 year cycle and that’s the reason the weather is so volatile (as at 2014). Human influence on climate is minimal (the latest estimate is about 3%). Pollution is another story altogether. Let’s spend our money on reducing pollution, not trying to change the weather.”

Queensland Vehicle Registration Concessions.


There has been a review of the Prescribed Service Person’s (PSP) required proof of eligibility to apply for a concession to their vehicle registration in Queensland. As a result of the review, which was conducted in consultation with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA), the required proof of eligibility to apply for a vehicle registration concession in Queensland has been amended.


As a result, from 17 December 2018, DVA gold cards embossed with TPI or EDA will be accepted as proof of eligibility for a PSP concession by Dept Transport. Please note however, to prove eligibility, any other customer applying for a PSP concession that has a gold card not so embossed, will still be required to present their gold card and a letter from DVA stating:

  • Persons assessed as at least 70% incapacitated under the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986 (VEA); or

  • Persons assessed as at least 50 impairment points under the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 (MRCA).

Manus Island.


Ray Payne, OAM, a Vietnam Vet who served with the 1st Battalion from June 1965 to June 1966, recently penned a letter to law firm Slater and Gordon. You can read it below: 


“I write on behalf of some of my peers and fellow Australians with regard to your action in pursuing compensation for the illegal immigrants on Manus Island.


These immigrants came to Australia without invitation, were rescued by our Defence personnel who put their own lives at risk, were fed and lodged at cost to Australian taxpayers and were free to return to their own country at any time. The conditions in which they lived on Manus Island are no worse than many legal immigrants who have arrived here for many years and who, in times past, lived in conditions much less well outfitted than those on Manus They were able to communicate with anyone, anywhere in the world courtesy of the Australian people paying for the privilege of providing the internet and telephone services.


You have stolen money from all Australians, with your alleged human rights claim. We have people in our communities who are homeless, aged and sick who need assistance also. Will you provide legal aid to them free of charge and pay your own costs to represent them ? I think not.


My disdain for your company and their ilk is immeasurable. I sincerely wish that I could afford to take you to Court and that my request that every illegal on Manus pay back the cost of their rescue and board and lodging, would be granted. That will not of course happen due to the fact that people like yourself have no shame and are willing to extort monies from Australian taxpayers.


Footnote. The $70,000,000 (yes 70 Million) that these spineless irreproachable people have extorted from the taxpayers of Australia gave them 30 % commission i.e. $21,000,000.


So, we have a case of insider beneficial decisions that simply rip us all off. These illegal immigrants also should not have received a cent but know most of them are worth more than the average Australian. Slater and Gordon should be named and shamed forever as criminal lawyers.


No mention of this letter in the Media.”




From the Ground Up.



Barry Ellison says:  I have been reading “FROM THE GROUND UP: THE TRAINING OF RAAF TECHNICAL GROUND STAFF 1948-1993” and came across a snippet of information that initially surprised me, but on reflection I guess it just showed how the Apprentices were treated like mushrooms.


From page 58 I quote: In town too, the RAAF was obliged to take into account the increasing number of trainees for whom Forest Hill was temporarily home. In 1959 the base authorities had been dismissive of a proposal raised within the Wagga Council for the establishment of an “Apprentices Amenity Centre” in the city. In responding to an invitation to discuss the idea with the mayor, the base commander, Group Captain E.V. Millett, then stated that he did not consider there was any need for such a centre since ‘he does not want them in town’, and has no desire to encourage them to spend their time in Wagga when they have every amenity on the station”.











The Great Generation VS the Green Generation


My grandfather was part of the Great Generation. Toughened by wars and depression they were patriotic nation builders.


Their monuments are long-term productive assets like the Mount Isa and Broken Hill mines, smelters and refineries, the Wollongong Steelworks, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the transcontinental railway, the overland telegraph line, the Yallourn coal mines and Power stations, the Renison and Mt Lyell mines and railways, the Kalgoorlie Goldfields, the Weipa and Gladstone bauxite industries, Pilbara Iron, the Perth-Kalgoorlie pipeline, the Kidman Cattle Empire, the world’s biggest merino flock, QANTAS, the Holden car, the Sunshine Harvester and a network of roads, railways, towns, power lines, ports and airports.


They survived floods, droughts, bushfires and plagues of mice, rabbits, locusts and prickly pear to develop an agricultural industry that provides food and fibre for millions of consumers. They welcomed boat-loads of hard-working migrants from many countries to farms and factories and celebrated the arrival of “clean coal energy by wire” to every home. They created parks and planted forests for timber and paper.


The Great Generation made sure their kids behaved at school and did their home-work. Mostly kids were “seen but not heard”. The kids walked, rode bikes or horses to school, and parents reinforced school discipline. That generation loved and trusted the ABC which provided unbiased news and weather forecasts and wholesome entertainment.


Our lives are now controlled by the Green Generation, who follow a Globalist agenda. This generation has devalued science, engineering and trade skills and pollute education curricula with the mantras of the green religion. Now they mobilise noisy truant kids for political rallies and we are suspicious of the alarmist, anti-enterprise, anti-family bias evident on the staff-controlled, taxpayer-funded ABC.


Too many of the Green Generation specialise in obstruction, destruction and delay, while themselves consuming the assets of the past. They cheer the demolition of coal-fired power plants and use green law-fare to stop or delay almost everything else. Among their battle trophies are South Australian and Victorian coal mines and power stations, most new industry proposals in Tasmania, much offshore oil exploration, new dam proposals in every state and every new proposal for coal development, gas exploration or fracking. They hope to hang the scalps of Adani Coal, Rocky Point Coal, Wandoan Coal and all Galilee Basin developments on their trophy wall. Australia has a huge uranium resources but nuclear power is banned.


Nowhere is the contrast between the generations more stark than in the Snowy Mountains.


The Great Generation planned, financed and built the Snowy Hydro-electric Scheme (without UN permission, direction or advice). This nation-building project captures Snowy water, uses it to generate reliable electricity, and diverts the water to irrigate towns, orchards and crops on the dry western plains.


The Green Generation supports Snowy Hydro 2, a hollow-shelled project that steals electricity from the grid and water from Snowy 1 to pump water uphill and then recovers part of that electricity by letting the water run back down again (when their intermittent green energy fails). It will be a big, power-consuming, expensive battery.


The sad history of Whyalla is instructive. The Great Generation built an iron mine, a steel works and a great shipbuilding enterprise there. Most of it is idle now. This generation of techno-phobes looks like trying to build foreign nuclear-powered submarines there but with diesel-electric engines (presumably running on bio-fuel.) The British navy that ruled the world ran on coal for the war-ships and bread, salt beef, lard, limes and rum for the sailors. Today’s green dreamers hope to feed the multi-sexual crew on nuts and raisins and use the alcohol to power the motors.



A truly modern navy runs on nuclear fuel.



The Great Generation created our present world and left many useful assets as their monuments. The Green Generation is destroying our future. The way things are heading, the lasting monuments to the Green Generation will be the skeletons of abandoned solar “farms” overgrown by lantana scrub, the concrete foundations of bankrupt wind “farms”, and spider-webs of useless sagging transmission lines and towers.


These memorials will serve to remind the next generation of the long, costly and futile war on hydro-carbon energy and the many failed climate forecasts.
