Australian Politics – Senator Brown Jumped Before He Fell

April 16, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ When he quit, Australian Greens Party leader Senator Bob Brown got the send-off any tyrant would have ordered from his favourite newspaper.

Australian Politics – I Don’t Think That Quoting Bob Brown Will Save Him

April 15, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ James Norman, Senator Bob Brown’s admiring biographer, defends him against cruel misrepresentation: His recent ‘’Green Oration’’ speech with the now-famous opening ‘’Fellow Earthians’’ saw him pilloried by a bevy of News Ltd heavy hitters – but most of them simply rewrote the speech without using any direct quotations in order to […]

Why Hasn’t An Alien Rung Bob?

March 26, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ The man who is saying the following is Senator Bob Brown, the Leader of the Australian Greens Party, the fourth major Party in Australian politics.

February 20, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ If it were up to Australian Greens Party leader, Senator Bob Brown, we’d have repeated Germany’s disastrous lead in ramping up solar power even more: SENATOR BOB BROWN: Well, it is the way to go.

Greens Kill Birds To “Save” The Planet

January 17, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Terry McCrann is amazed that killing birds is now a Greens plan: BORROWING a chant from the 1960s: hey, hey Bob Brown, how many birds have you killed today? … According to Spain’s Ornithological Society, its main bird conservation charity, Spain’s 18,000 wind turbines might be killing six million to 18 […]

It’s Industry Itself That The Australian Greens Hate

August 18, 2011 by

Slowly, But Slowly, Gillard Is Edged Into A War With The Greens

April 1, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Political necessity drives her to say it, but Prime Minister Julia Gillard is at least now closer to the mark: ”The Greens wrongly reject the moral imperative to a strong economy,” she said. “The Greens have some worthy ideas and many of their supporters sincerely want better politics in our country. They […]

Australian Greens Party Senator Bob Brown And His Big Polluters

March 28, 2011 by


Senator Bob Brown is the Leader of The Australian Greens Party. Senator Brown and his fellow Greens Senators have the balance of power in the Senate, neither of the main Parties having sole control. Virtually every piece of Legislation has to have their approval before it passes. To that end, they have incredible power, that […]

Shh! – Misconceptions About Placing a Price on Carbon Dioxide You Won’t Hear About

February 12, 2011 by

Brisbane Flood Update – But Never Too Soon for Brown to Blame a Coal Miner for the Floods

January 17, 2011 by

Australian Greens Senator Bob Brown Blames Current Australian Flood Crisis on Coal Mining Companies

January 16, 2011 by


Australian Greens Party Leader, Senator Bob Brown, in his customary rush to judgment following any natural disaster has blamed this current flood crisis in Australia on the coal mining companies.

Greens are wrong-right: China indeed shows us the way

December 5, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt Nuclear power is banned in Australia, even though the heads of the parties defending that ban cannot offer a rational reason for it: The Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, says the economic case for nuclear ‘’doesn’t stack up’’, and the Greens leader, Bob Brown, said this week that the nuclear industry relied on […]

Green balloon pricked

November 28, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt This election result might be from a State election here in Australia, but it acts as an indicator of the feeling of the people. Victoria is the second largest State, and has long been a Labor stronghold. With the healthy majority they had, it seemed unlikely they would lose, but in fact, […]

Greens Don’t Need Costings When The Vibe Is So Good

November 8, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt This may be a minor State election in Australia, but it is symptomatic of the way these minor parties and Independents operate at the party political level. They have no chance whatsoever of ever being in Government where they are the ones who make the decisions. Because of that, they can say […]

It’s The Greens Way – To Live Off What They So Lightly Condemn

October 31, 2010 by

Barrister Brian Walters is running for the key inner-city seat in the November 27 election […]

What Does A Price Of $26 Per Ton On Carbon (Dioxide) Emissions Mean

October 25, 2010 by


Debate rages everywhere about placing a cost on Carbon Emissions, and before I go any further, it shows the ignorance of those people who propose this that they cannot even get the title right. It’s Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Emissions. That debate rages even here in Australia, so let’s look at the situation here in Australia […]

The Major Physical Impossibility Of Solar Thermal Power

October 14, 2010 by


This first part here may seem boring, but it is absolutely critical when discussing this matter. If you pass a single wire through a magnetic field, a flow of electrons is induced in that wire, hence, pretty basically, you have generated electrical power, the flow of electrons. So, it stands to reason that if that […]
