Plibersek’s Big Chance

Still maybe suffering from relevance deprivation syndrome, Tanya Plibersek will make the most of this new opportunity to trip the light fantastic. Hint: we should be concerned. She’s in charge of saving critters and all kinds of plant life; of resuscitating nature. The “initiative” is called Nature Positive. The goal: to halt and reverse the loss of nature by 2030 on the way to bringing nature back to its pristine state by 2050.

It’s her big chance to put behind her the scorn of only getting environment and water in the ministry carve up. If I recall she wanted education. In any event, something more important than the environment, when Chris Bowen takes all the headlines with climate change and energy. Albanese flits the stage international; and smarming Chalmers acts like the heir apparent. It might be a tad galling; who knows, I don’t know.

But, cometh the moment cometh the woman. In case of any doubt about her commitment to the opportunity, she has already promised a veritable panoply of new (Nature Positive) laws.

The Albanese Labor Government will soon begin consultation on the detail of our new environment laws, two months ahead of schedule. Experts from more than 30 groups, including environment, business, and industry, will be able to carefully examine the detail to make sure the laws will be as effective as possible. The new laws are complex. The whole package will run to over 1,000 pages.

And, to boot, she’ll no doubt get star billing at the upcoming inaugural Nature Positive summit to be held in Sydney in October.

Haven’t heard of Nature Positive? You will. Look it up here. It will give fresh impetus to the deindustrialisation of Australia, and the of West more generally

Twenty-seven international organisations, of which I recognise only a few, have been beavering way since 2019 before formally launching in September last year. Apparently, it had a guernsey at COP 28 in Dubia in December and at the last Davos gabfest in January.

Remember they never sleep, they never flag, they always have some new-beaut scheme up their sleeves to remake the world.

No time, usually, for the “druggie’s moll’ but if she tilts back some of “blackout’s” windmill dreams I’ll consider giving her the 2nd thoughts …

Veneztralia has always been at war with Nature Negative. Ness. Negativity?
[note to state and federal agriculture mandarins- get style guide out to press, this follows dangerously hot on the heels of the sparklefarts of Regenerativeness Agriculture and Impossible Burger)
…I might be wrong, but with the coming depression, “Nature Positive” might be altogether far too kindergarten for the Slovenian schoolmarm to sell to grown-ups.

Tanya Plebersuck should use the existing Environmental Laws to ban all Wind Towers and Solar Factories and the Transmission lines to ever be built. Shake up the Laybore Partee and become the next Opposition leader in 2025 when Tennis Elbow, Blackout Bowen, Tony the Burke, Dim Chalmers, The Immigration Minister knob head and many, many others (including the Commie Unions and Greens) lose power. Tosser Teals as well.

Then hopefully, Australia can get back to a proper First World class Electricity Grid powered by lots of coal, gas and uranium.

Not going to happen though until the Economy crashes and burns.

Tell me how is plibs going to reconcile the tons of cement needed for each turbine, the desertification of soil under solar farms , destroying trees to put up transmission lines

Min, she simply won’t. One, in the first place she won’t ever put herself in the position of being asked any hard question by any journalist- two, this is just another announceable revolution in an archipelago of unicorn gl*tter sh*t. A game of two-card monty where the Lizard People show a hobgoblin on one hand, Gaia deliverance on the other, and put their blood funnel fair up our clackers to extract wealth… forever.

You see, for these jet-set parasites, even the obvious problems of Lysenko Energy can be fixed by even more Ponzi Economics.

Cos they’re knida linked.
If Nature Positive gets to be seen as toxic as every other green boondoggle / red tape nightmare for small business, then yes, I’ll cut a tombstone for her.
We could even start workshopping ideas for a counter-campaign- I’ll start-

  1. Nature Positive is just Elephant Stamps from globalists, for multinationals.
  2. This halo for the jet set is a millstone for farmers.

They will turn the world into the Paradise they claim it was before Man. Unfortunately, that means no more Man – something every Socialist movements has a go at, and creates piles of bodies.

This is her plan for the number 1 position on Labors less-than-impressive front bench. Come up with a Green scheme so bad it will bring Albo down and then she can claim it needs a woman to do things right …. The Nature Positive seems like a complete nightmare for everyone buy Legalizers.

So, nuclear power, then.

It’s fun she got that ministry. A booby prize of the first water. Neat work by Albo – he neutralized her in a way that she couldn’t refuse. An Environment Minister can’t make it to be Prime Minister, everyone in the party room thinks they’re a joke. Which they are.

On the other hand it doesn’t stop Bowen blaming the real culprit!

‘Those opposite failed’: Chris Bowen slams Opposition for ‘doing nothing’ on gas shortages (Sky News, 26 Mar)

How dare the Liberals block the Narrabri gas project because of specious environmental concerns? Oh wait that’s Tanya’s department and it happened a month ago. Maybe she should get on the phone to some people.
