Noosa Shire declares climate emergency

Noosa Shire has declared a climate emergency! So frightened are residents who stand to have their houses submerge below the waves that this house is a whisker from a fire sale at $5.2m! Many others just like it!

Has the $112m council got that little to do that it must indulge in this stupidity?

Contained within the 2017/18 Annual Report there is a section that looks at ‘Excellence as a Council’

It reports,

Top performing services were Waste Management, Customer Service, Disaster Management, Community Safety, Management and Supervisory Officers, Quality of Elected Council and Financial Management; and

Areas for improvement included Parking, Facilities, Economic Development/Local Employment, Road Maintenance, responding to the Community, Road Construction, and Providing Leadership and Advocacy.”

It doesn’t seem that a climate emergency is a concern of local residents.

So scared are local and future residents that the council approved 98.5% of the 503 development applications put forward. Hardly the actions of people fleeing for their lives.

The council reports 1,518,164 general waste bins 740,725 recycling bins 360,312 garden bins were collected with 131,000 visits to the tip.

Is Noosa Council paranoid of being thought of as a pariah if it doesn’t join the group think brigade of 650+ cities virtue signaling?

Perhaps we shouldn’t be too critical and celebrate Noosa Council’s climate efforts with the “one” EV charging station at Cooroy in 2018! Maybe it can champion the installation of 2 charging stations in 2019. A 100% uplift in climate commitments!

How badly do the left want to lose the 2020 election?

It seems the left can’t contain their Trump Derangement Syndrome. In Brooklyn, one advertiser has placed mini Trump statues for dogs to urinate on.

The question is with the level sinking ever lower in the way TDS is displayed, do the Dems honestly think they have a chance at the 2020 election with such openly childish antics? It was only last year when a comedian pretended to urinate on Trump’s Hollywood Star.

Imagine if an Obama statue was put out for dogs to urinate on? We wouldn’t hear the end of it.

Climate alarmist Streisand flies 3 pooches to London for concert

Barbra Streisand has flown her three pooches 10,000 miles to London to listen to her Hyde Park performance. As with most climate alarmists, they rarely practice what they preach. This only makes CM sleep more soundly at night that we have little to worry about. Feel sorry for the pooches.

AOC, best remember that victory loves preparation

Poor old AOC sought to hammer former ICE Director Thomas Homan but he pointed out facts and made her look rather wanting…she is really becoming a liability for the Dems.

If she doesn’t like the laws she is in a great place to change them.

When you know time is meaningless

Who knew? Prince Charles has told Commonwealth leaders we have 18 months to do something about the planet.

Which is it? If one were to time an egg by the alarmists we’d end up with a bunch of mush. Yet Greta Thunberg and the Extinction Rebellion (XR) were quick to capitalize on the Prince’s prophecy. 18 months. CM thought 2025 was the XR timeline? IPCC 2030? Please, can we just have some consistency? It’s all too confusing.

Don’t forget CM pointed out XR’s complete own goal citing a 2018 paper that spoke of 2022. So blinded by their excitement to confirm their own bias they overlooked the very content that ratcheted up the hysteria by recording 2025 instead. Sloppy! And they expect us to submit to their demands because supposedly they know best.

So quick to grab any alarmist hope, any date will do it seems. CM is sure if 2018 was cited as the deadline, XR would be all over it.

Unfortunately HRH should speak to his father who has toyed with bringing back a new version of HMY Britannia. Think of all the energy intensity that will go into making that monster.

When will these people finally work to putting forward a coherent strategy rather than espouse anything that might support a cause.

The bigger laugh was that XR Germany has posted that climate change could claim its first victim in the UK by 2045. XR started in England.

So deranged are the country-by-country XR movements that they seem to be trying to outdo each other in the same echo chamber.

Laugh of the day

According to Public Policy Polling (PPP), USWNT Megan Rapinoe would beat Trump in 2020. She doesn’t wish to run as she’s too busy but CM thinks she doesn’t hold mainstream values to win the majority of voters.

Although her potential victory speech on Capitol Hill could be the first to be profanity laden. “To my fellow f*cking Americans.” It might be a safer option than listing each identity group by level of grievance because they’re all the most oppressed in their own eyes…even those suffering under the weight of multi million dollar contracts.

Somehow CM doesn’t think Nancy Pelosi wants another petulant child to deal with. AOC is bad enough.

Pelosi turns on AOC staffer

CM has held for a while that the Democratic Party is so fractured and disjointed in policy that it will end up eating its own. Recall Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, belittled the Green New Deal as the “green dream.” CM said it was best for Pelosi to bring Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) inside the tent for the very reason she won’t use her platforms to say silly things because she isn’t on the A-team.

Well AOC’s chief staffer, Saikat Chakrabarti, has stepped in and accused Nancy Pelosi and her ilk as being “New Southern Democrats” further contesting,

They certainly seem hell bent to do black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the 40s.”

Pelosi shot back,

All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got…You got a complaint? You come and talk to me about it. But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just OK

Good to see the harmony inside the Democrats will lead them to a resounding 2020 victory……..

A show of hands anyone?
