Billboard Batallion speaker Wade Northausen visiting from Victoria

Climate Wars Heating Up in Rural Australia

Essay by Eric Worrall

To say tempers are running hot over climate policy related bullying and abuse of rural landowners would be an understatement.

I attended an action meeting on the 28th September in Gympie.

Katy McCallum (Kilkivan Action Group – she has featured before in WUWT) along with Jim Willmott presented disturbing footage of wholesale destruction of wilderness areas to make way for the industrial scale wind farm and solar development – vast swathes of trees cut down, corridors 10s of miles long through formerly pristine wilderness.

Wade Northausen of Billboard Battalion along with Michael Griffith of Cafe Locked Out discussed the issues they were facing in rural Victoria.

One of the most disturbing issues raised was about crowd control weapons used against EPIC freedom protestors in 2022.

The Aussie government has admitted to using LRADS, sonic weapons, to disperse the anti-vaccine mandate protest, though they claim the LRADs were not configured as weapons.

But the people I spoke to claim they were burned – burns which took weeks to heal. Sonic LRAD weapons don’t cause burns, they hurt your ears.

Perhaps something other than an LRAD was deployed. The US military developed a microwave radiation crowd dispersal weapon a decade ago, dubbed the “pain ray” in some popular press articles. The microwave weapon looks a lot like the LRAD weapon, the antenna superficially has a similar shape. The microwaves projected by the ADS weapon are not the same as your microwave oven, they are designed to be far less penetrating, to minimise the risk of injury – but they can still reportedly cause second degree burns.

I don’t know for sure what happened that day, I wasn’t there – but I was horrified at first hand accounts I listened to from protestors who claim they suffered inexplicable burns.

The meeting speakers also mentioned the need to avoid excessive organisational centralisation. I contributed a little to the discussion on this issue, I said “the one thing they can’t cope with is a brush fire”. I also pointed out the tendency of European populist leaders of centralised activist groups to have unfortunate automobile accidents, which got a round of applause from the audience. The leaders I was thinking of were Austrian politician Jörg Haider, who died in an automobile accident in 2008, after his party unexpectedly won almost a third of the vote in national elections, and Britain’s Nigel Farage, who also suffered a suspicious automobile accident while campaigning for Brexit, though thankfully Farage’s accident was not fatal.

The speakers were (thanks to Marie):

Allona Lahn – No Jab No Play

Marleen Owen – Feed the homeless

Michael Griffith – Cafe Locked Out

Wade Northausen – Billboard Battalion (Victoria)

Katy McCallum & Jim Willmott – Kilkivan Action Group

Craig McManus – My Place Gympie

All the speakers were very careful to insist that everyone should remain within the law.


My overall impression – these are ordinary people, law abiding rural folk, who are being bullied and disrespected by government backed big green, mixed in with some vaccine freedom protestors. Some fiery things were said, but nobody, not a single person I saw speaking or spoke to afterwards, advocated any form of law breaking – other than the lockdown freedom marches they participated in. Most of the speakers very explicitly advised people not to break the law or make people feel threatened, and there were also explicit warnings from speakers to respect the privacy and families of politicians and other protest targets, and not to approach the private homes of politicians, only their official offices, if people wanted to conduct any form of protest.

Leave law breaking and violence to the greens.

There was some merchandise available. I bought a hat with 8:32 written on it, full marks if you know what it means.

Harvard University’s original statement of purpose:

… printed in London in 1642, the very year in which the first class graduated from College.

“After God had carried us safely to New England,
and we had builded our houses,
provided necessaries for our livelihood,
reared convenient places for God’s worship,
and settled the city government;
one of the next things we longed for
and looked after was to advance learning and perpetuate it to posterity;
dreading to leave an illiterate ministry to the churches,
when our present ministers shall lie in the dust. ….

Note that in the original seal below one of the books was turned face down to symbolize that humanity’s knowledge is finite, while what may be known is infinite — hubris has turned that book UP, now — now, human knowledge is all that can be known.

And (of course!), no more mention of Christ or of Church.

Ezekiel 25:17.

“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the
Inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in
The name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of
Darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost
Children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious
Anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know
My name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.”

Note: Ezekiel 25:7 is: “I will carry out great vengeance on them and punish them in my wrath. Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I take vengeance on them.'”

The rest is NOT from the Bible.

The phrase “my brother’s keeper” is only used one time in the Bible, in Genesis 4:9 by murderer Cain, sarcastically.

God NEVER commands us to be “our brother’s keeper.” We are to love, not “keep” (as in control/supervise) our sister or brother.

It is understandable why the author of Pulp Fiction misused that phrase — MANY people do. For instance, Obama liked to toss that one out. Most socialists would — they are ALL about controlling, “keeping” their “brother.”

The attacks on farming are the most chilling aspect of current global politics. They appear to be concentrated in countries that export surpluses to the rest of the world – Netherlands, Canada, Australia, Ireland. The implications are that real hunger will be felt in the importing countries. A lot of them are in sub-Saharan Africa. Is this a deliberate move to produce famine??

They know more about how to run a chemical plant than do the people who run it.
They know more about how to build nuclear power plants than do the engineeers who are actually paid to build such plants.

And, yet… truly, distinguishing the two, while not unmeaningful, really makes little difference to the end result:

This boy is Ignorance and this girl is Want.
Beware them both, and all of their degree,
but most of all beware this boy
for on his brow I see that written which is
Doom, …

The “stupid” who do such things “for the greater good” are the worst of all:

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.
It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

In China the Northern and Southern Dynasties 420 to 589 CE is contemporary with the fall of the Western Roman Empire. This followed and was part of the Six Dynasties 220–589. A period of conflict but also progress, in arts culture and technology.
The Mayans in Mexico ca 250-900 CE. The Nazca lasted until about 500CE when ENSO events got them.
Of course the Byzantine Empire lasted from 395CE until May 29, 1453.
The Roman Empire was in perpetual conflict both internal and external, something that affects all empires. Not everyone wants to be incorporated, and there’s always somebody who wants to takeover.

Eric, when you said: “I personally believe the problem is incompetence rather than malice…” I must agree with you.

The Cambridge Dictionary defines malice as “the wish to harm or upset other people” and stupidity as “the state of being silly or unwise“. While the Cambridge defines incompetence as “lack of ability to do something successfully or as it should be done“, I personally define incompetence as “not recognizing or admitting one’s ignorance.”

It then makes sense to restate Hanlon’s razor as Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity incompetence.”

The opposite of love is not hate; it’s indifference. The green goody-two shoes don’t really hate farmers; they just feel that farmers are ignorant, and don’t “care” enough. Greens LOVE Mother Earth. Hicks who plow it don’t care.

That’s how greens come up with the twisted logic that fertilizer doesn’t make land more fertile. Only manure does that. Of course, greens disdain “factory farms” where manure can actually be gathered and reused in significant amounts.

As for the Third Worlders and poor city folk everywhere who will suffer or starve if First World agriculture gets less efficient, Greens are indifferent. Greens “care” about Mother Earth, not people.

Maybe a few true believers do, but, most, I believe, are just greedy “organic” schleppers essentially lying about fertilizer and about their competitors’ products (as if the biochemistry of “organic” fruit and vegetables is meaningfully different from that made using commercial fertilizer and health-promoting pesticides🙄) to sell their OVER-PRICED product.

I am an ANTI-“organic” consumer. If it says, “organic,” I refuse to buy it (except *wince* the only free range chicken I could find was also touted as “organic” (I do the free range thing because I can’t stand the thought of chickens living their entire life in a cage — yes, I realize it’s just emotional, but, I am willing to pay for it and am not demanding that non-free-range be made illegal)) because IT IS A SCAM.

Hm. You know what? I just may urge my elected representatives to amend Title 7 of the U.S. Code to make free range (in a meaningful way) the rule for all poultry farmers. It would increase the price of chicken (I am assuming, I realize, that this price would still be within the reach of the average consumer).

A society is measured by how it treats its weakest (including animals) members.

Yes, of course. What I meant was a specialized definition of “free range.” I just read some of those definitions and none was 100% what I would write, so, I won’t copy in any, here.

I’ll just say that I would carefully (not doing that here, obviously 😏) define “free range” to mean that the hens have enough space to walk around and a chicken house to go inside at night OR never out from under a wire “net”/cover (or even in a very large building) that protects them from predators from the air and a fence to protect from other predators.

Anyway, just enough ability to walk around and peck here and there at laymaker crumble or bugs. I am NOT advocating for the extreme “free range pasture raised” (just let them wander freely about the open “range,” vulnerable to many dangers). I do not equate chickens with people. Chickens do not need much to be content. I just don’t want them to be miserable. Just hate the thought of them sitting in a cage month after month. 😢

Like “organically grown”, there are lots of incompatible definitions for “free range” for both egg and meat production.
Your version is reasonably close to most of them, though there are specific requirements for how many hours they can go outside, and area per bird. Anecdotally, very few birds actually go outside, but stay in the shed where they feel safe.
Meat birds are still chickens (ie juveniles) when they go to meat their maker, and are about evenly hens (well, pullets) and cockerels,

I just don’t want them to be miserable. Just hate the thought of them sitting in a cage month after month. 

Battery cages are (or were) exclusively for laying hens. Meat birds are raised in environment controlled sheds, where they have free run of the shed.

Say, that IS good to know about the meat birds. I didn’t know that! I assumed they had lives very similar to the layers.

I did realize that they can’t be more than a few months old or they are too tough. And that is a good thing.

I don’t know much about what they refer to as “free range” here, but, years ago, when I was visiting Guatemala, the chicken down there were absolutely delicious. They tasted as good or better than those my grandmother use to raise back when I was a kid.

Here, they have removed most of the taste from the chickens by raising them in overcrowded chicken houses, breeding them to produce the maximum meat in the minimum amount of time, and feeding them the absolute minimum feed necessary to meet marketing requirements.

When actually permitted to roam free they get plenty of exercise and have the ability to eat a natural diet of grasses, weeds and insects, none of which they can get when factory raised. They should at least taste better, more like those in Guatemala. Of course they should also be one of the Heritage breeds, not a factory breed.

I think organized religion, based on the Golden Rule (treat others the way you would want to be treated), is good for people, and good for society. People need hope.

Of course, me, I need some evidence, although that doesn’t keep me from having hope, because I don’t know everything there is to know so can’t rule anything in or out.

I’m reading a good book now titled, “I Have Lived Before” The True Story of the Reincarnation of Shanti Devi. It’s stories like this that cause me not to rule things out prematurely.

The Universe is a Big Place and we are just scratching the surface with our current knowledge, so we shouldn’t rule anything in or out until we are sure.
