Which is Worse?

Climate Change or Climate Change Activists?

In my alotted three-score-and-10 plus some, I have not noticed the 0.5oC increase – the other +/- 0.5oC increase was before my time.

However, the activists do have a very significant effect on all of us:

  • Carbon tax.
  • Higher electricity charges.
  • Subsidies for all things green, i.e. electric vehicles, wind and solar installations, etc.
  • Higher food prices thanks to food crops used for biofuels.
  • Deforestation to cultivate crops to be used for biofuels.
  • Rare raptors, other birds and bats killed by wind turbines or incinerated by solar installations (The Ivanpah type concentrated solar system).
  • Traffic and other disruptions caused by mass protests.

I’m sure one could add many other effects.

Election 2019

election2019

During the last several months we were bombarded with promises.

Now that the election is behind us, we will have a four year period of broken promises followed by another year of new promises – and so it will continue …

Some of the promises:

  • A better life for all (those with the right connections)
  • Free houses (if you can jump the queue?).
  • Jobs, jobs, jobs (created by ruining the economy, Eskom, Transnet, SAA, etc. Perhaps you can get jobs in a Saxonwold shebeen.).
  • Doubled social grants (Sorry, VBS is already looted to extinction).
  • Free higher (decolonised, gravity free) education.
  • Free organic waste vegetables.
  • Electric cars (powered by Eskom wind turbines?).
  • Jail time for those implicated in state capture (Yeah, right!)
  • Jailtime for the Zuptas.

OK, I made the last one up. It’s a promise only I am daring enough to make (and break – so there).

EU Burokrasie en die Oorlog op Huisvroue

Hier is die jongste gekheid van die Europese Unie se Brusselse burokrate. Jy weet al van die besluite oor stofsuiers, elektriese ketels, wasmasjiene, elektriese motors en vele meer. Alles in die naam van “Global Warming” maar met die versteekte doel om vroue se lewens net moeiliker te maak.

pennetjie

Nou loods hulle ‘n aanval op, wait for it, Wasgoedpennetjies! Die redenasie is as volg:
Die pennetjies is van hout en staal gemaak, enersyds word die wereld ontbos en andersyds is die proses om erts te myn en in staal te verwerk koolstof (!) intensief. Die opdrag is dus dat alle wasgoedpennetjies nou net half grootte gemaak moet word! Minder hout en staal en dus minder koolstof in die atmosfeer.

Die denkfout wat hulle hier begaan is natuurlik dat mense nou twee keer  soveel pennetjies sal nodig hê om wasgoed op te hang. En omdat die hout nou dunner is, breek hulle makliker en moet dus meer dikwels vervang word.

Soos met die ander genoemde regulasies, sal hierdie een net die teenoorgestelde uitwerking hê.

Lees die hele storie met van die snaakste illustrasies hier in Engels in Der Spiegel – (en plastiek pennetjies? Nein, nein! Verboten!)

A Vicious Circle.

Die verroeste trein(lose) spoor tussen Vishoek en Simonstad.

trein

Die treindiens tussen Vishoek en Simonstad het honderd jaar lank gereëld geloop – maar die afgelope twee of drie jaar net sporadies, en die laaste jaar byna glad nie.

Die verskoning? Sand op die spoor – dit blyk ‘n tegnies onoplosbare probleem te wees! As die huidige bestuur koerant gelees het, sou hulle sekerlik “aardverwarming” as ‘n verskoning aangevoer het? So asof die Suid-Ooster ‘n nuwe verskynsel is.

In die jare tagtig het vuurklip in die middestad gewerk en met die trein werk toe gery. Destyds was die trein betroubaar, veilig, skoon en vol. Maar met verloop van tyd het die waens verroes, vervuil en vol graffiti geraak. Ook was die diens nie meer gereëld nie en boweal, nie meer veilig nie.

Soos wat die diens verswak, word die passasiers minder, en met minder passasiers is die geld minder, en soos die geld minder word, verswak die diens verder – gevolglik loop die trein nie meer nie – en dit wil voorkom asof Metro Rail die handdoek gaan ingooi.

Vooruitbeplanning bestaan ook nie. Onlangs is al die ou hout dwarslêers teen hoë koste met beton vervang. Waarvoor miljoene spandeer net om die diens op te sê?

Onderhoud bly ook in die slag soos hier gewys.

Dan praat ons nie eers van die Guptas se vingers in die paai  nie.
