Flannery Bullshit now moves to Cattle Farting Control

Tim Flannery conman of carbonTim Flannery failed Nostradamus of taxpayer funded Australia climate change, engineer to government on carbon tax, now has a home for his proven bullshit. Again taxpayer funded he is engineering control for farting cattle polluting the atmosphere, yes on your money…

The Story:

GENETICALLY modifying cows so they burp and fart less – that’s one of 40 initiatives to reduce emissions being considered by the cattle and sheep industry.

Researchers are investigating the merits of selective breeding to alter the genetic makeup of certain breeds of cows and sheep.

The new breeds would produce less methane in a bid to reduce the impact of farming on the environment.

The research is part of 100 initiatives, dubbed Target100, aimed at delivering sustainable cattle and sheep farming by 2020.

Tim Flannery Enviroment fiction engineerEnvironmentalist Tim Flannery, who has signed on as the face of the initiative, says sustainability is vital for the long-term survival of the farming industry.

“Our impact on the environment can be very severe in the agricultural and grazing sectors,” he said before the launch of Target100.

“We know historically some of the disasters that have happened, species lost, soil degradation and water degradation and so on.”

Bulldust by phoneBut limiting the flatulent expulsion of methane gases not only has a positive impact on the environment, but also increases productivity of the animals.

“Methane is a waste,” Mr Flannery said.

“The energy that the cows produce in methane, could have got into producing meat.”

Some individual cows in a herd would produce less methane than others, meaning producers could breed from those and produce a less methane-rich herd.

“It’s just like you would do if you had some cows that produced more meat and less bone. Farmers have been doing that for years,” he said.

“All they’re doing is turning their attention to methane.”

Almost half of the 100 initiatives to improve sustainability in farming deal with gas emissions, and include investigating the development of microbes that will help suppress methane production, finding bacteria to metabolise methane and better managing manure.

Another platform of the project is giving consumers an opportunity to learn more about how their beef and lamb is produced.

“Australian cattle and sheep farmers are caretakers of nearly half Australia’s landmass and their profitability depends upon the health of the land,” chef Justin North said.

“They are natural environmentalists who want to leave the land in better condition for future generations.”

Queensland Country Life newspaper in bed making babies with LNP

Fairfax Media’s hitman forQueensland, Cameron Thompson, editor of the Queensland Country Life newspaper has launched a broadside at Bob Katter, telling him to keep out of Liberal National Party territory.

Since Cameron took the helm, QCL circulation has dipped like Juliar Gillard’s popularity poll.

Cameron Thompson, a longtime critic of any political party other than the Liberals, got his orders a month ago from the LNP HQ to formally discredit Katters Australian Party, a talent he has been honing since the formation of KAP.

He used the front page (March 15) on this occasion to blame Katter for allowing Coal Seam Gas miners onto private property. He wrote that Katter as Mines Minister in 1989 introduced the legislation allowing miners on to farm property. What poor Cameron doesn’t know is that most title deeds have reserved all mineral and petroleum deposits to the Crown. Katter had nothing to do with this 100 year old entitlement.

Cameron should have looked at how many amendments have been made to the Mineral Resources Act since 1989.

Thompson is well known in LNP social circles for gripping the goat, and has shared many a festive board celebration with the pillars of the big end of town inGeorge St,Brisbane.

He was taught to be cautious, but his latest tirade against Bob Katter has drooped to lower proportions than an octogenarian’s appendage.

Maybe he has an underdeveloped complex about this and is in need of a viagra quick fix?

Or maybe Cameron is fantasizing that he is punishing the KAP for spilling the beans on former Brisbane Mayor and hero Campbell Newman who has an affinity for telling one group one thing then telling another bunch of hopefuls another like his support for same sex marriage.

Really, when it is all said and done,Campbelldid say he supported gay marriage, and most grippers or the QCL readership would not warm to that statement.

So is Cameron trying to retrieve the irretrievable?

He forgets Katter has 40 years experience inQueenslandpolitics and has never been defeated at an election, in spite of various electoral frauds being committed.

The KAP policies have been formulated in an effort to undo the damage caused to ruralAustraliaby the Liberals’ freetrading policies which have decimated all agricultural industries, particularly dairy farmers.

Being a reporter on a rural newspaper one would think Cameron has some nous about these industries, but he just parrots the lines given to him by the LNP.

It is a sad day because people want change and not a continuation of ALP policies that the LNP will give us.

Cameron should have looked at how many amendments have been made to the Mineral Resources Act since 1989.

The LNP has refused to repeal the ALP’s hated Vegetation Management Act, because Opposition Leader Jeff Seeney (Peter Beattie’s unofficial cousin) said too many land owners had been fined under the act. It is here to stay, he said.

Years ago an astute bushman once said, “The C_ _ _ of a Life paper is just the unofficial organ of the National Party.

“If you want to find out what’s going on in the bush listen to the ABC.”

The Australian Party plan for Re-Constructing Queensland

Bob Katter and Aidan McLindon today launched the The Australian Party’s plan for “Re-constructing Queensland”.

The plan was announced at the campaign launch in Townsville and will see government switch from “selling and spending” to “building and wealth generating”.

It will create 60 000 new full time jobs over the next six years and see infrastructure investment of between $20 and $25 billion.

At last we have an option for REAL change.

WA Mental Health want Children to OK Treatment Without Parents Consent

Eddie Bartnik Mental Health WA CommissionerA draft bill is before the WA Parliament – WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS DRAFT BILL?: The W.A. Mental Health Commission (MHC) were responsible for writing the Draft Mental Health Bill 2011, with Mental Health Commissioner and clinical psychologist, Mr Eddie Bartnik (pictured) overseeing the process.

The following arrived from Alison Tarrant and Director of Applied Scholastics Western Australia based in Perth. Is this where Australian democracy has now been reduced to?

Some very disturbing information has come across our path in relation to a Draft Mental Health Bill which concerns our precious children and our rights as parents. When I read it I was quite shocked and thought someone was playing a joke on me but then I went onto the main website http://www.mentalhealth.wa.gov.au/mentalhealth_changes/mh_legislation.aspx which is the Government Department of the Mental Health Commission and looked at the actual Draft Bill link above.

This is an extremely lengthy document which you can easily get lost in and miss the main points of the Draft Mental Health Bill that the Mental Health Commission is wanting to pass as law in our society.

Download the document and I have provided you with the main points below (with pages numbers relating to the draft bill) which you should absolutely be made aware of.

If you don’t like what you read below you have until the 9th March, 2012 to send a letter/submission to the Mental Health Commission and others stating exactly what you think and also an opportunity to reject this Proposed Bill:

Write expressing your objections to the Mental Health Commission and to your state legislator.

Feedback closes 9th March 2012 at 5pm.

Email: on contactus@mentalhealth.wa.gov.au or

Mail: GPO Box X2299 Perth Business Centre, W.A. 6847

Send a copy of your objections to the Mental Health Minister, Health Minister and your local Member of Parliament.

Find their addresses at: www.parliament.wa.gov.au/parliament/memblist.nsf/WAllMembers

Please read below for the main points:

  • CHILDREN OF ANY AGE TO CONSENT TO STERILISATION: If a psychiatrist decides that a child (under 18 years) has sufficient maturity, he or she will be able to consent to sterilisation. Parental consent will not be needed. Only after the sterilisation procedure has been performed does it have to be reported and then only to the Chief Psychiatrist. [Pages: 135 & 136 of the Draft Mental Health Bill 2011]
  • 12 YEAR OLDS WILL BE ABLE TO CONSENT TO PSYCHOSURGERY: Banned in N.S.W. and the N.T., psychosurgery irreversibly damages the brain by surgery, burning or inserting electrodes. This draft bill proposes to allow a 12 year old child, if considered to be sufficiently mature by a psychiatrist, to be able to consent to psychosurgery. Once the child has consented it goes before the Mental Health Tribunal (MHT) for approval. Parental consent is also not needed for the MHT to approve the psychosurgery. [Pages: 108, 109, 110, 197,198, 199, 213]
  • 12 YEAR OLDS WILL BE ABLE TO CONSENT TO ELECTROSHOCK (ECT): Electroshock is hundreds of volts of electricity to the head. Any child aged 12 and over, whom a child and adolescent psychiatrist decides is “mature” enough, will be able to consent to electroshock. Also, once consent is given, there is no requirement for parents or anyone, including the MHT, to approve the electroshock. Electroshock should be banned. Its use on the elderly, pregnant women and children is especially destructive. [Pages: 100, 101, 103, 104, 194, 105]
  • RESTRAINT AND SECLUSION OF CHILDREN: Children can be restrained in a psychiatric institution, with the use of mechanical restraint (manacles, belts, straps etc.) and bodily force. Chemical restraint – the use of psychiatric drugs to subdue and control the person – is not covered in the draft bill, so there are no legal safeguards to prevent its application. Death can result from all forms of restraint. [Pages: 122, 121, 113, 246]
  • INVOLUNTARY COMMITMENT OF CHILDREN: A psychiatrist can involuntarily detain any child for up to 14 days if “suspected” of mental illness. Parents will not be able to discharge their child during this period and take them home. The psychiatrist can then make a “continuation order” to continue the detainment for up to 3 months and thereafter for each subsequent 3 month period. During detainment, the child could be drugged, restrained, secluded, given electroshock if over 12 and could be put into a ward with adults. Parental consent is not required to continue the detainment or for any treatment, including the child being placed on a legal order to continue to receive drugs at home. The MHT hold hearings on the detainment of a child, but there is no guarantee the child will be able to go home. In 2010/11 there were 1,248 hearings for all ages and only 58 people had their status changed from involuntary to voluntary. [Pages: 21, 22, 35, 19, 107, 36, 53, 54, 183 -185, 190, 191, 213, 214,18, 46, 47, 48, 65, 66, 70, 73, 75-77]
  • WHO WILL BE ABLE TO DETAIN A CHILD IS NOT FULLY KNOWN: An “authorised mental health practitioner” can also detain a child or adult in the draft bill. Exactly who an authorised mental health practitioner is, is not defined by the draft bill. The Chief Psychiatrist can literally give anyone or any profession the power to detain someone just because he considers they are qualified and by publishing the decision in the Gazette. This clause must be removed from the Draft Mental Health Bill 2011. Only a judge or magistrate should have the power to order someone be detained, and only with full legal representation for the person facing depravation of liberty [Pages: 246, 247, 21, 22]

Has the above information shocked you as much as it has shocked me??

I suggest you write your letter saying exactly what you think.

Dodgy Queensland Electoral Commissioner removes Katter name

The Queensland Electoral Commission, long tainted with corruption allegations has again shown its true colours by dropping the Katter name from Katters Australian Party on two million ballot papers..

An application has been made to the Supreme Court to have the Katter name reinstated.

Last year, amid some controversy the Australian Party applied to have the name registered as a political party. The Electoral Commission refused saying the Australian Party name was too similar to other registered parties.

As a result Katters Australian Party was registered by the Commission.
