Sharing is caring

Fully State-funded Australian broadcaster and (practically) far left propaganda machine "Our" ABC goes on a soapbox rampage pushing their climate change religion once again through their flagship show Four Corners.

This time in a desperate attempt to be seen as authentic, the show selected several actual farming businesses who claim to be in a constant fight in combating the horrors of climate change! 

One of the farmer interviewees, the multimillion-dollar corporate winemaking dynasty Brown Brothers, cited climate change as the reason for its decision to buy into Tasmania in order to "climate-proof" their business. The CEO of Brown Brothers claims rising global temperatures were affecting their grape harvest in the southern Australian State of Victoria so they decided to buy vineyards in Tasmania in order to maintain their winemaking business.   

I guess spending 32 million acquiring vineyards in Tassy had nothing to do with this "poor Aussie battler" expanding their business hey... wink wink. Sorry, but call me cynical if I think their appearance on Four Corners was nothing more than a publicity stunt aimed at toffee nosed left wing wine guzzlers residing in inner-city Melbourne.   

Another farmer (I heard speaking on the ABC Radio promo) said climate change has made him "change" his farming method drastically! For example, he now rotates crops and cattle on his property... well, duh... shouldn't you be doing that anyway? You are a farmer, for goodness sake, crop rotation and moving your cattle to prevent scorched earth makes sense, doesn't it!? 

Anyway, all this climate change hysteria has been debunked so much over the past few years that people (the normies) are finally waking up to the fact that global warming is an expensive scam. However, the left is still doubling down and now resort to reinforcing the lies (because the numbers don't stand up) with climate change propaganda ad-nauseam.    

And even if climate change was a real threat, no amount of carbon taxes and energy poverty enforced by the Australian Government on its own people would make any difference to global temperatures. Australia could turn off ALL electricity in the whole country and it still wouldn't make one speck of difference! 

The biggest threat to farmers and jobs in Australia is not climate change it's the RISING COST OF ENERGY - high electricity costs business, jobs, and people's homes!   

Just today as I write this rant, Aussie Farmers Direct has gone into receivership wiping out 200+ jobs! Mr Shepard (appointed Administrator) said that Aussie Farmers Direct had struggled to compete with Coles and Woolworths, with directors saying it had been hampered by the major supermarkets' low-cost imported products (source - Sydney Morning Herald). Meaning, other countries are manufacturing goods cheaper than Australia can and then selling them back to us.

Only huge corporate giants can survive in this CLIMATE. 

The USA (God bless them) look after their own and are virtually energy independent with Trump openly supporting the coal industry - America's electricity prices are significantly lower than Australias.   

Yet here we are crying that Trump has put tariffs on the importation of steel into the USA because it might hurt Aussies... Instead, the Australian Government should get off its arse and actually create real wealth by lowering taxes and energy costs to support our own manufacturing industries. But oh no, let's just blame someone else because it seems to be the new CLIMATE here in Australia to cry poor victim me constantly rather than do the hard yards through making the big decisions to fix the real issues.

All the Australian Government has done for this whole term is talk about genitalia - BTW, what's the CLIMATE like down there? Hot and humid...

Mark, first of all THANK YOU for everything you do with Self Sufficient Me — I have learned so much more in such a short time about gardening. I started last year with my first raised bed, and this year I am working on improving my garden after having learned so much between you, books, my father, and some other youtube channels. Self Sufficient Me is definitely my #1.

I just wanted to interject here and offer my stance on climate change being the world's most expensive, even criminal, HOAX ever committed against the public. It's astounding how many brainwashed people there are out there, hate to say it, but especially down under where you live. Bless you for roughing through it all though. Your work speaks for itself. Every sane person knows that like most other things you get battered into your skull via the news and education system is utter bullsh*t.

I deleted evil facebook a while back, so I had to find this to create an account in order to comment. Seriously, thank you for your firm stance against climate change; it really is heroic considering the kind of social environment and ostracization that exists today.

Please, keep up the good work. Blessings to you and your family, your precious gardens, plants, roots, animals, soil, and water. I want to see if I can attach a photograph of my backyard garden. I know things are a bit crowded, and perhaps I have some plants that are incompatible together, but I'm still only beginning and learning through trial and error with each subsequent run being better than the last. I will be moving from southern California to Tennessee by the end of the year, and I can't wait until I can get my own plot of land where I will be able to create so much. You inspire me.

God bless you and your family.

Hi @Noah, and thank you for your support! Sometimes we have to take a stand and speak frankly about what we really believe even if our view is unpopular. I am a huge advocate for practical environmentalism whereby we all try our best to limit our pollution or negative impact on our environment. I don't agree with taxing people to force them to change behavior when there's no practical solution or an alternative for them - this just divides communities and disadvantages poor people.

I love your pics of the garden and don't worry about the bed being a little crowded - this is often a good thing!
