End the Climate Hysteria – Fuel Security Edition

End the Climate Hysteria – Fuel Security Edition. By David Archibald, as part of his campaign running for the West Australian Federal seat of Curtin in the May 21 federal election. Some highlights:

Apocalyptic cults have come along every so often in history and climate change is just the latest version. Belief in climate change is filling a void in the cultists’ lives, but there is no reason that the rest of us should suffer because of that. …

But to borrow a line from Conan the Barbarian, this is not just another snake cult. They have started to do real damage to the economy, and are even putting the Nation’s existence at risk. If it weren’t for the idiotic hatred of carbon by the cultists we could already be well advanced in converting our low grade coal to petrol and diesel and becoming self-sufficient. …

Australia’s big four banks have stopped financing new coal projects. Oil companies are reporting that it is difficult to get financing for development projects. The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority has taken it upon itself to enforce the diktats of this whacko religion — a form of nature worship based on pseudo-science. …

Neither the Liberal or Labor parties have any interest in keeping Australia safe from fuel supply interruptions. They have both proved that by keeping Australia delinquent with respect to our obligation under the International Energy Agency agreement. This requires Australia to maintain stocks equivalent to 90 days of our annual net imports. We only hold 53 days of net imports. Australia is the only delinquent country under that treaty — because our current crop of politicians, Liberal and Labor, couldn’t care less. …

One day the coal will run out too and we will have to go nuclear. Civilisation won’t run on sunlight and wind.

Solar panels are cheap only because they are manufactured using cheap energy from coal in China. But China has hit peak coal and their costs are going up from here. …

Eventually coal will be too precious to burn as a fuel. We need to conserve to convert. …

But in the meantime it is time to choose. The Liberal member for Curtin has listed having lighting installed at tennis courts as one of her achievements of the last three years.

This is the choice facing us in Curtin at the election in May. Tennis court lighting or fuel security? Please make the right choice for all our sakes.

I can see the state media getting behind David’s campaign … not. They will thoroughly ignore him and his ideas. At best they will pick up one fact that damns him in their eyes and publicize that.
