As we descend into the dystopian nightmare of being forced into poverty to satisfy the climate change fanatical lunatics, my mind increasingly turns to the consequences of our actions... or inaction.
Have we learned nothing from history? 
In John Steinbeck's novel, " The Grapes of Wrath "   we felt the pain of hopelessness, helplessness and desperation of people pushed to their limits and to the point of breaking under the torment that life had become. 
 
 
The Grapes of Wrath is from the Bible  - the Book of Revelation, passage 14:19-20, which reads, ''So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God.''.
It has never been used more powerfully than in the Hymn of the Republic. 
 
 
 

 

 

Our lives, around the world, have become ruled by rich fellas who seek to turn our farmland and agriculture into dustbowls of soil poisoned by solar panels, wind turbines and overgrown national parks. 

Our ability to feed ourselves is under threat. Water is being stolen by corporate enterprise and traded as a commodity that no longer belongs to the People. 

 

  
Here, in Australia, we are facing the same Grapes of Wrath that, like our American counterparts,  have endured and will endure again, unless something is done... and fast. The ability to feed ourselves, fuel our homes with electricity and prosper is under threat from weak politicians hell-bent on self-enrichment and egged on by less than 10% of the population - the vocal, insane minority. 
 
We Must get back to Nation building and common sense. 
If we do not, the future looks bleak and beyond redemption. 
 
Which brings me to our ability to move forward and leave the negativity behind us. 
 
In 1929 a Brisbane based Engineer, Dr JJ Bradfield, came up with a plan. A plan that could change Australia forever.
The Bradfield Scheme. 
The man who designed the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Underground Railway system and Brisbane's Story Bridge came up with a plan to drought proof Australia forever. Yet it has never been implemented. Why?
It all came down to Lake Eyre.  How to fill this enormous reservoir with rain that falls in Northern Australia during the monsoonal summer. That huge Lake Eyre Catchment Basin area occupies 20% of Australia and is over 1 MILLION square kilometres.  John Bradfield proposed that we could use the water from the Northern Queensland rivers and channel it down to the Lake Eyre Catchment basin.

By 1938, John Bradfield and his team had checked out the area and his " Place of Flowers " proposal was met with criticism.
Fast forward to 1974. Bob Katter, then a member of the Joh Bjelke Peterson Government in Queensland, took up the gauntlet. It was proposed that this plan could increase the irrigation of crops and the land in areas grazing sheep and cattle. The then Premier of Queensland, Sir Joh, felt this was a project worth supporting. The Bjelke Peterson Government of Queensland sought support from the Federal Government, who gave that support. The later Hawke-led Government withdrew that support and the Queensland Government decided to continue on its own, without Federal support.
The fall of the Bjelke Petersen Government in 1987 saw the end of the Bradfield Scheme.
Decades later, we have seen droughts and floods throughout our sunburnt country. Water that floods with the devastating impact upon our communities and lives lost.  Droughts that, tragically, cause farmers to kill their stock and themselves.

Nearly 100 years have passed and now all we do is worry about coal. Whilst people weep and wilt in summer with no electricity; whilst people have died in floods; whilst our farmers kill their cattle and themselves for having let the team down; whilst all this happens, no one does a damn thing about implementing the Bradfield Scheme.

So why are we not doing it? It is never too late.

Of course, coupled with this is the project known as The Iron Boomerang.

On the 6th of September 2022,  the Senate has passed a One Nation motion establishing an inquiry into Project Iron Boomerang, an ambitious nation-building proposal to link Queensland’s coal and Western Australia’s iron ore fields by rail line.

Despite having the world’s third largest reserves of metallurgical coal and the largest reserves of iron ore, Australia only accounts for 1% of world steel production.

Project Iron Boomerang seeks to fix this, linking the two steel ingredients by cross-country rail line and building steel-making plants at both ends. Senator Roberts said:

“Project Iron Boomerang is a visionary, nation building project.”

“Australia ships billions of tonnes of commodities overseas to places like China who use it to make steel which Australia buys back from them. Combining our natural resources for value-add manufacturing to make steel here in Australia is a no-brainer.”

“The business case shows a potential benefit to the economy of hundreds of billions of dollars, including $200 billion in annual steel production.”

“Iron Boomerang will bring transport, employment, water, power and internet to disadvantaged remote communities across the top end.”

“This inquiry will enable us to test the promising business case and assess whether Infrastructure Australia should consider Iron Boomerang a High Priority Infrastructure project.”

“The Senate is to be congratulated for passing this One Nation motion so the investigation of this project can begin. The potential benefits cannot be ignored and must be assessed.” source

The Bradfield Scheme and the Iron Boomerang are the sorts of things we need now, not pushing water uphill to push it down again in order to satisfy the green climate change gods.

If we do not see some Nation Building here and in other countries around the world, we are going to die in the dust bowl of neglect. And our rulers will not lament the passing of We the People.

In fact, they will be celebrating our defeat. 

 

Like America, we have the ability to be Nation Builders. We can produce steel. We can manufacture. We can prosper and offer our future generations lives worth living. As long as the politicians and bureaucrats get out of our way and stop interfering.

When Greta Thunberg made her speech, I wonder if she thought of the young women who lived through the Dustbowl.

 

 

Yes, how dare YOU. 

I will leave it to Malcolm to speak John Steinbeck's final words.

" The people come with nets to fish for potatoes in the river, and the guards hold them back; they come in rattling cars to get the dumped oranges, but the kerosene is sprayed. 

And they stand still and watch the potatoes float by, listen to the screaming pigs being killed in a ditch and covered with quicklime, watch the mountains of oranges slop down to a putrefying ooze; and in the eyes of the people there is a failure; and in the eyes of the hungry there is a growing wrath. 

In the souls of the people the grapes of wrath are filling and growing heavy, growing heavy for the vintage. "

  

 

This was the voice of a real victim of bad policy. 

How dare you 

 I cannot help it. This is pretty special.
