The Adani election : Comments

By Everald Compton, published 6/11/2017

The biggest concern is the Great Barrier Reef and the threat to its existence is the hottest issue of them all, particularly among voters under 35.

I just wish that all these socially concerned groups around the world, and indeed the world population would realise that the whole globe is growing at an exponential rate and that it's unsustainable.

Look at almost every problem that the globe is suffering from that could not be ameliorated by a reduction in population or at least a reduction in the growth rate. From the rape of the seas and plastic pollution to climate change and the very loss of biodiversity and much much more will get worse in the future despite efforts to contain it. Just feeding humanity is becoming a problem.

I hardly ever see any campaign to limit human breeding. We are slowly but gradually losing our standard of living by over crowding. It is becoming insidious so we don't notice. We are not looking at the big picture, only just scraping the surface.

Whatever grossly immature people 'under the age if 35 years' think, do the opposite. There is no threat to the reef. Given the seditious crap these people talk, they would not be allowed to live in Australia if they had not been born here.

The greens Everald? That would be jumping from the frying pan into the fire?

If unemployment is bad now? just wait until the greens get the balance of power and stop all manner of commercial development on ideological grounds alone!

As for Adani? Four corners exposed them as tax avoiding cheats/crooks, who will never be able to sell any of our coal in India or anywhere else!

That said this state could be made to hum and go from financial strength to strength. If we had a LEADER, with the balls to go nuclear.

Not just any nuclear, but walk away safe, molten salt thorium. And that would end the possibility of damage to the reef from adjacent mining!

I mean a 350 MW thorium reactor would burn just one ton of thorium for the entire life of the plant!

Why, the security guard out front would cost more than the fuel!

Molten salt technology eliminates the need for high pressure and high pressure containment vessels and or, an expensive building designed to contain an internal rupture of a system operating at a massive 300 atmospheres!

The molten salt reactor needs no such containment, inasmuch as it operates at normal atmospheric pressure. And safe enough due to passive safety design features to abandon for 120 days, without any problem ensuring.

Thorium is the most energy dense material on the planet! Moreover, thorium is fertile not fissile and therefore cannot be compressed to create a thermonuclear explosion.

It's time finally sanity/integrity prevailed! And we opted for energy cheap enough, clean enough and safe enough to enable our steel and aluminium smelting to get into full production! As well as allow nickel, cobalt and other energy dependant metals refining to be restarted or begun!

Truly affordable energy is half of what we need! The other half is sane tax reform, coupled to bipartisan pragmatism and integrity in politics!

Talk/tinkering at the edges, is both cheap and seriously overabundant! As well as endless political road blocks placed to prevent political success, which only ever acts to harm the electors/state!

The most disturbing part about this business, is corruption.
It barely rates a mention now, but Adani is a globally corrupt dodgy business.
To think the politics of Australia is so blind to it; is so uncaring of its influences into and over, the political ruling class of this country, is THE most disturbing aspect of life generally in Australia.

Of course, the added tragedy to its citizens, as pointed out in this article, is the concept that the burning issue is the barrier reef. Not so. The burning issue is the greens ability to do the barking for the Labor party, by the snow-job it is doing.
The Labor Greens alliance is corrupt. Shorten is corrupt.

It requires little research to expose the underhand dealings of Adani, with the latest corrupt arrival to the Australian shores, the Gupta brothers. Here is a website dedicated to it!

Snake: It seems you are very confused? First, we are not electing a world government with power to sterilise couples after they have had a single child?

Nor are we able to depopulate the planet without going to war! Which at best, can only exacerbate the perceived harm of overpopulation!

There's only one way to peacefully reduce population and that is by growing average incomes in those areas now impoverished.

And where this has occurred population stabilisation/reduction has followed! Along with increased trade/wealth growing opportunities!

Mindlessly banging away at the ideological drum and endlessly bemoaning natural instincts! Does no more than sow the seeds of discontent. And clearly already massively overabundant/overdone!

What is needed is a sane rational approach and cheap affordable energy coupled to equally affordable deionization dialysis desalination, which alone presents with any prospect of reversing both desertification and man made climate change!?

When people are able to feed and clothe themselves, without de-afforestation/desertification and rendering whole species extinct! We will be able to proggresively reverse most of the harm without resorting to any kind of FINAL SOLUTION!

Four Corners did an excellent job on showing us
the damage that the Adani mine will do and
Australia does need to look towards long-term
solutions regarding our energy problems.
Here's a link on thorium that may be of interest:
