Monday Mirthiness: job posting ‘CLIMATE EMERGENCY OFFICER’

From the “we have grant money we need to spend” department and the website “Ethical Jobs” comes this new-age lamebrained job posting.

Craig Kelly writes on Facebook:

It’s not a joke. The City of Yarra Council in Victoria are going to spend over $100,000 p.a to fund a ‘Climate Emergency Officer’ who will ‘’promote climate emergency information’’.

It is not the job of Local Councils to peddle lies to try and indoctrinate the ignorant, gullible & naive in the Doomsday Cult of Climatism.

Rather than peddle lies about ‘global warming’, the City of Yarra should be currently concentrating on using their resources to shovel all the snow that has recently fallen off their roads.

And if this local council wants to fund a propaganda officer – we can just deduct all the cost from the Federal Government grants the City of Yarra receive.

Hard working Australians should not be forced to fund this rubbish.

  1. Part of the real AGW agenda: A high-paying jobs program for people the free market economy has absolutely no use for.

      • In the Philippines Rodrigo Duturte would probably have a different approach to dealing with such suppurating ideological puss-filled scabs on the rump of humanity. And it would work too.

      • An alternative job title could be, “Chief Hoop-Jumping Co-Ordinator”! After all, that’s all it’s about, employing people of dubious societal worth on vast taxpayer-funded salaries, benefits, & pensions, to force others to jump through hoops, the we do it because we can mentality, & if any societal benefit occurs along the way by pure accident then we’re justified! The UK has been suffereing from this kind of crap public sector wastefulness for donkeys’ years! Orwell Rules!

      • Rates are per household, you need to redo it with the number of households in the council. It’s inner city Melbourne so most are rabbid inner city greenies so non of the ratepayers will care.

      • No. $100,000 is what they will pay this person. Sell rate (ie what the person costs) is 1.5 to 2 times that.

        So more likely something like $2.50 per person.

        • theres a huge email campaign by getup avaaz and greenpi$$ scaring the wiless into signing to anny/intimidate councils
          I got one
          so I went in person to the council to note MY protest at such idiocy , and chatted a couple of the older excouncil but influential landholder to what was going on;-)
          theyll take care of that!! ;-))0

  2. Right, that’s it!

    I have learned enough from WUWT and notalotofpeopleknowthat to apply for this job and have myself a nice little earner until I decide to retire.

    Griff and Loydo are my guiding lights.

    I can walk into Yarra City offices and give them every single possible reason we should embrace wind turbines, welcome solar panels, enjoy Electric Vehicles and abandon air conditioning in the home.

    I can get pretty alarmist you know….No really, I can!

    As they say, if you can’t beat the elitist’s, you might as well join them. And for $100k my moral fibre is pretty flexible.

      • This international law firm advertises for a secretary.A golden retriever comes in,and she passes the typing test.In the interview,the personnel manager says,”But how about foreign languages?” And the golden retriever says,”Meow”.

    • Damn, you beat me to it. How about a job share? My moral fibre is about as flexible as a NOAA temperature adjustment so we should be a shoe in.

    • Hot scot

      Your recent letter was very good. All you need to do is to forget all that and instead put yourself into the mindset of the mp who replied to you and quote from his letter at the interview.

      Don’t forget, quote from your letter and you will be shown the door, quote from his letter and you are a cert for the job.

      Good luck!

    • Hot Scot –

      The beauty of it is that if you land the job, you don’t have to actually accomplish anything. Nope, you’d be a government employee and nearly impossible to fire, regardless of the results you produce.

      It helps to always appear to be busy, but it’s not a requirement. However if you do, and nothing is being accomplished, you can ask for an assistant or two to help you keep up! Pretty soon you’ll find yourself in charge of a fair-sized department with all the perks of a department head. Oh, and don’t hire anyone competent or things will start getting done. Then they will stop increasing your department’s head count.

      Go for it! Go for the gold!

      • H.R. – a fan of C. Northcote Parinson I see! The successful candidate for this position need only read the first chapter of Parkinson’s Law to know how to expand the scope, importance and salary of this position through a simple system of non-accomplishment of fuzzily stated goals (alway due to lack of “adequate” staff).

    • Now there is an idea, increase rates on properties that have heating and A/C by $3,000 PA and remove their parking permits.
      The

      • When I worked for a large “Computer Company” in 1995 in the UK, GBP5,000 was the wage. I knew I should have been a train driver!

  3. “Rather than peddle lies about ‘global warming’, the City of Yarra should be currently concentrating on using their resources to shovel all the snow that has recently fallen off their roads.”

    Wow, the snow just falls off the roads in Yarra?

    • The thought of Snow on the roads in Australia is kind of scary. There are very few plough trucks, and I doubt that salt spreading is allowed. No one has snow tyres, and most people have never driven in snow before.

      • Not quite true James. We get snow in the Great Dividing Range and had plenty locally, more than usual, a couple of days ago. There are ski resorts and people are required to have snow chains or snow tyres to drive up to them. Our nearest, Lake Mountain (for cross-country skiing) in Victoria, has a clear sign out in Marysville about that. Those who drive regularly in snow know how to cope with it…townie ‘looken peepers’ are more of a hazard to themselves and others.
        I am not aware that salt is ever used.

  4. “Behavior change” is one of the job responsibilities. Will this become a matter of “our gulag is greener than your gulag”?

  5. “The City of Yarra should be currently concentrating on using their resources to shovel all the snow that has recently fallen off their roads.”
    What ?
    City of Yarra is entirely inner Melbourne trendy belt. No snowfall. Thats outlying areas that are much higher altitudes.

    • Good wine from the Yarra Valley, outside Melbourne. Snow sometimes falls on the Dandenongs, also outside Melbourne…just.

  6. I’ll pretend I’m an Aussie alarmist for that! Let’s see, hmmm, “calm down everyone, you’re being lied to and there’s no climate emergency, there is however more taxation revenue desperately needed so please fork it over”. How’s that work?

    • AU$100k maybe above the average wage but it’s not a lot of money when you consider the price of Melbourne property and the rates people have to pay.

    • I forgot, the ad says $100k + p/a. I does not say what that package is. Whatever the “+” is, lets say $10,000, you will lose 9.5% of the total (On $110k that is $10,450) to compulsory superannuation before you’ve been taxed on the remainder.

  7. No beef for the London millennials
    from ‘mirror’
    ” Goldmsiths University in London bans beef burgers to help save the planet from climate change”
    from express:
    “It’s 25 years since John Gummer, who was then agriculture minister, took part in this publicity stunt involving his unwitting four-year-old daughter Cordelia. The very public feeding of the burger to the child was supposed to convince the nation that British beef was perfectly safe.”

  8. I notice the weather forecast for Melbourne is a maximum of 13 degrees C and a few showers. How to deal with such an emergency ?

  9. It sounds like the mayor’s brother-in-law needs a job????……….. and soon he’ll need an assistant and a few secretaries. And I’m sure there is not one homeless person in Yarra. Sooooooo sad.

  10. “Politoffizier” derived from the Russian equivalent “Politkommissar”, a highly feared equivalent of Gestapo delegate. Commonly found in socialist Germany (a.k.a DDR) .

    Preaches the virtues of communism and establishes the list of those that will soon go missing without a trace.

    Words are that some “Politkommissar” went missing too. The risks of a truly strange job.

  11. One of the many tasks of the new ‘CLIMATE EMERGENCY OFFICER’ in the City of Yarra will be to walk the streets of all South Yarra Shopping Centres wearing a Sandwich Board stating ‘REPENT FOR THE END IS NIGH’ and handing of pamplets on Veganism.

  12. The 5th bullet point explains it all,

    Investigate, prepare, and support applications for relevant grant programs to secure funds…….

    This is just a grab for other people’s tax money.

  13. “It is not the job of Local Councils to peddle lies to try and indoctrinate the ignorant, gullible & naive in the Doomsday Cult of Climatism.”

    –>
    There’s our tax dollars at work Australia. “Stand and deliver!”, comparatively honest armed bush-rangers used to say, and at least you knew where you stood with them. Now drug-addled feral greenie psychos within elected local council admins need your money much more than you deserve to have any of it. Pay your land rates bill families of Australia! Or we’ll confiscate ans sell you family’s home, sell it, and give the proceeds of the crime to our pet rabid feral greenie degenerates in Council admins all across the land. Vive-la Extinction-Rebellion! Vive-la Global Communist Revolution comrades! Vive-la corruption of Democracy!

  14. As a City of Yarra resident – they were already hated by many of the residents – a more useless group of expensive jobsworths and killjoys would be hard to find.

  15. Well, of course, the true believers have to create new jobs in climate.

    All those climate degreed persons have already filled the burger flipper and greasy spoon waitress jobs; likely for years to come.

  16. I should have read the article properly. It’s not $100k, it’s up to $94, 943 + super + RDO (Rostered Days Off). So $94,943 + 9.5% (Which is deducted at source). That’s not a lot of money in the City of Yarra where many houses cost millions!

  17. Just imagine this persons objectives for the year. How fluffy and meaningless would they be? good gig though, being set up to never fail.

  18. This job advert has all the hall marks of somebody’s best friend wanting a well paid job. The somebody, being a job application decision maker….

  19. Australians should remind themselves that Yarra is implementing the UN “Sustainable Development” policies.
    The following article is VERY revealing and quite detailed:-
    “Yarra wins race to become Australia’s first One Planet Living council”
    https://www.thefifthestate.com.au/articles/yarra-wins-race-to-become-australias-first-one-planet-living-council/
    The “One Planet” phrase means that the Council have decided to turn Yarra into a ghetto and a gulag.

    I live in Brighton , Sussex (UK) where the local Council are implementing exactly the same policy under the name “One Planet Brighton.” The shopping area of the city is now full of boarded-up shops and “closing-down” sales. “Sustainability” turns out to mean “destroying the economy”.

    I have written more about “One Planet Brighton” here in my blog:-
    http://steelydanswarandpeace.blogspot.com/2011/01/sustainable-happiness-is-no-laughing.html

    Wherever you live in the western world “One Planet” is coming for you and yours.
    Sustainable Development is poverty and slavery. Ghetto and Gulag.

    The “Climate Con” is the setup for the “Sustainability Scam”

  20. “… if this local council wants to fund a propaganda officer …”

    Since the contact is “Sustainability Unit Manager” I think the city already has, not just a propaganda officer, but an entire propaganda department.

  21. Make that Chief Climate Emergency Officer (CCEO) to add some zeroes to the salary and benefits for politico placements in companies like Apple etc.

  22. Some cities seem to have money to blow away. I wonder what public services in the city of Yarra look like but they must eat from Golden Plates. But there is worse – should politicians use taxpayer money to fund propaganda. Yes, i know. They do it all the time. But it’s still valid to ask the question. Taxpayers have worked for this cash, they were expropriated from it at gunpoint and they should be entitled to politicians that will use it responsibly. Instead, they blow it on someone who will party with schoolkids every Friday and spew political theater into the world. Let’s see how long voter tag along with this.

  23. From some given angle this seems like a fairly cheap brainwashing of masses program,
    in the line of so many many such as “social” programs in these modern days, luxury of the taxpayers money.

    The Blair’s brainchild.

    How many have jumped in checking-trying their luck with this flashy opportunity, and subjected to some special test-training in the process!

    Is not like this being new thing there, has being played for so many many years now.
    SJW, Antifa or E. rebels, anyone!

    cheers
