Green politician denying cheap energy for those who can least afford …

This politician would be the biggest hypocrite of all, denying life-saving coal fired energy to those who can least afford:

Well done brave protectors!

Buckingham is one of those Greens who would like the world’s energy use to be like North Korea’s. Even to taking risks with life and the law in regards to his energy agenda.

He has an excuse though, born in Tasmania, the ‘Greenie State’? He will ignore real evidence too: Belgian Scientist/Organic Chemistry Professor Calls UN IPCC Theories ‘Sordid’ …’Failed Again’

Jeremy Nova Buckingham is an Australian politician. He has been a Greens member of the New South Wales Legislative Council since the 2011 state election. Buckingham was born in Launceston, Tasmania and spent his early lif…

Timeline

1997: Buckingham relocated to Orange in the central west of NSW in 1997 with his wife Sarah, where he worked as production manager for monumental stonemasonry McMurtrie & Co.
2003: Buckingham unsuccessfully contested the state Legislative Assembly seat of Orange in the 2003 state election.
2006: After a back injury rendered him unfit for heavy lifting, Buckingham enrolled and completed an Advanced Diploma in Ecological Agriculture and Land Management at the University of Sydney, which he graduated from in 2006.

It’s not easy to uncover a politician’ travel expenses, especially in NSW. He has had encounters himself with police as a law-breaker.

Ecological Agriculture? Now that’s an odd University course. Not for a Green who despises CO2 emissions I guess.

I am not surprised that protest laws are in the throes of receiving large penalty increases. Jeremy Buchingham, like the typical Green that he is, is blinded by his ideology:

I moved to have climate change and the impact of mining and CSG included in the terms of reference for this water inquiry, but the Liberals, Nationals and Shooters Party refused. Reckless and stupid?

Jeremy Buckingham and his peers need to read this bit of wisdom:

Michael Crichton identified as the biggest challenge facing mankind. In a 2003 speech to the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco he said,

“I have been asked to talk about what I consider the most important challenge facing mankind, and I have a fundamental answer. The greatest challenge facing mankind is the challenge of distinguishing reality from fantasy, truth from propaganda. Perceiving the truth has always been a challenge to mankind, but in the information age (or as I think of it, the disinformation age) it takes on a special urgency and importance.”

About Tom Harley

Amateur ecologist and horticulturalist and CEO of Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Inc. (Tom Harley) Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Incorporated Kimberley Environmental Horticulture (KEH) is a small group of committed individuals who promote the use of indigenous plants for the landscaping of parks and gardens. Rehabilitation of Kimberley coast, bushland and pastoral regions are also high on our agenda. This includes planting seedlings, weed control, damage from erosion or any other environmental matter that comes to our attention. We come from all walks of life, from Professionals and Trades oriented occupations, Pensioners and Students, Public Servants and the Unemployed. We have a community plant nursery where we trial many old and new species, with a view to incorporating these into our landscaping trials. Our labour force are mainly volunteers, but with considerable help from the 'work for the dole' program, Indigenous Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) groups and the Ministry of Justice, with their community work orders; in this way we manage to train many people in the horticultural skills needed for indigenous plant growing. We constantly undertake field trips that cover seed and plant collection in the Kimberley. Networking around the Kimberley region and the east Pilbara is a necessary part of promoting our activities. We consult on a range of Environmental and Landscaping matters that deal with our region. Our activities involve improving Broome's residential streetscapes by including 'waterwise' priciples in planting out nature strips. Sustainable environmental horticulture is practised by members of our group. We use existing vegetation as the backbone of any plantings, using these species to advantage when planning to develop tree forms or orchards. The Broome region is sensitive to development. Subsequently many weed species have become dominant in and around developed areas. The use and movement of heavy machinery is the biggest single cause of environmental degradation. We dont live in a 'Tropical Paradise' but on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. The plants that survive best here, grow in well-drained pindan sand, and are found from the Dampier Peninsular southward to where average rainfall is below 600mm. When we use rainforest species, detail is important when planting, water catchment, sunlight and understorey species are all considered. The use of recycled 'grey' water is an advantage here as well as treated waste-water, although many local species do not fare well with nutrients from this source. We use waterwise planting methods which include harvesting asmuch rainwater as possible, with swales designed to hold up to 200 litres, to help recharge the local groundwater aquifer. There has been a serious decline in this aquifer over the last few years. With the fast expansion of the Broome peninsular, more and more land is being covered by concrete, iron and bitumen so that much less water is available to replenish the aquifer, allowing the salt content to become significantly higher. The small Broome Peninsular is on the south-western corner of the Dampier Peninsular (bound by Broome, Derby and Cape Leveque at the northern tip). Compaction by vehicles also inhibits water retention due to the content of our local pindan sand, hard as concrete in the dry, going to soft and sloppy mud after rain. None of us are botanists, inevitably we have got some names wrong, names changed, or have not gone to sub-species level.
