Response to the letter by John Cropper, "BEGGING TO DIFFER" Mercury, Wednesday July 10, 2019.
If there was a gold medal for misrepresentation and propaganda then Mr Cropper would win!
What is absolutely clear is that global warming is a scam that is focused on wealth redistribution and control, not saving the planet from climate change.
Elitist and global celebrity Al Gore is on a continuous tour campaigning for us to reduce our carbon footprint while he increases his footprint?
I acknowledge the nuclear disasters at Chernobly and Fukushima, however technology has improved.
France has wind and solar renewable energy but also 58 nuclear power generators for consistant base load power which renewables cannot produce.
Nuclear power is clean energy while providing base load power to homes, businesses, hospitals and sports venues.
Mr Cropper's bad mouthing of nuclear energy is just typical green-left scaremongering.
Get your facts straight next time Mr Cropper.

Re-bottle the Genie
Australia has changed significantly since the introduction of the Prices and Incomes Accord, the Deregulation of the Australian Financial Industry and the introduction of the GST.
None of the above having actually delivered on the rosy promises made of them.
The Accord diluted the ability of organised labour to defend and promote the interests of Australian workers.
The recent royal commission into the Banking and Finance industry laid bare the corruption a deregulated financial system encourages.
The effect of John Howard's GST upon consumers speaks for its self!
The deregulation Genie once released created a profit bonanza for governments and the owners of industry.
It also created a decline in the living standards of ordinary Australians.
Deregulation has allowed the suppliers of food, fuel, electricity and other services to increase costs to consumers. Incomes and, conditions of employment continue to decline.
Self-regulation in the construction industry is the most likely cause of structural failures to High Rise buildings.
All of the above are an 'Australian Story' without a happy ending.
Putting the deregulation Genie back in its bottle will always be impossible while ever Australian voters elect governments with no desire to have the deregulation Genie re-bottled!

Are you having a go?
You can't help every now and then to have a good chuckle to yourself sometimes.
Since the coup back in August last year, every day Scott Morrison has been constantly saying to the people if you have a go , you get a go.
Well the number of days federal parliament sat from July 1st, 2018 to the 30th June 2019 was 39 days.
That to me says you're not having a go.
