Gulf Coast Aviation Cessna 510 Citation Mustang VH-KXM Pops into CQ Airports - Plus LifeFlight LearJet 45 VH-VVI "Ambulance 451" Back at Mackay Airport Twice More! "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

On Monday 13 August and Tuesday 14 August, Gulf Coast Aviation Cessna 510 Citation Mustang bizjet VH-KXM was back at various CQ Airports.  It has regularly been flying between Cairns and Vanrook Station on recent days after flying North from Bankstown during the latter part of July.

On Monday, VH-KXM was noted arriving into Emerald Airport from Cairns before it soon departed to Vanrook Station.  Then on Tuesday, VH-KXM flew into Gayndah Airport from Vanrook Station.  After spending the day on the ground, it departed to Rockhampton Airport before later departing Rocky for the Sunshine Coast.

Meanwhile, after completing a couple of training flights to Proserpine Airport on Friday 10 August, the LifeFlight (Aeromed) LearJet 45 bizjet VH-VVI "Ambulance 451" was back in CQ, completing what appeared to be a pair of medical evacuation flights out of Mackay Airport on both Monday 13 August and Tuesday 14 August.  On both flights, VH-VVI arrived into Mackay Airport from Townsville and departed to Brisbane.

Anning calls for urgent referendum on immigration cairnsnews.org

United Nations sycophants of ALP, Greens and LNP decry Senator Annings remarkable maiden speech which is reproduced in full at the bottom of the page

The dominant left wing of national broadcaster, the ABC is frothing at both ends over Senator Fraser Annings maiden speech.

Cairns News has perused the speech and discovered it is not nearly as volatile as Pauline Hansons in the maiden speech stakes.

Brainless shock jock Senator Derryn Hinch, naturally a Victorian and ALP atheist Penny Wong  have joined the choirmaster ABC along with the Jew, Josh Frydenberg, unremarkably spluttering the views of the Liberal Left.

KAP Senator Fraser Anning takes on the UN sycophants of the ALP and LNP

It is a terrible blight on the jaundiced, national Marxist education system, that a supposed government Minister is unable to rely on normal comprehension to understand the meaning of Senator Annings quite acceptable speech.

Readers can decide for themselves but the new senator leaves us in no doubt a national referendum on immigration should happen quite soon.

Below is a statement from Senator Anning:

Senator Anning has dismissed criticism of his use of the words final solution in regards to immigration as an effort by the left to shut down debate.

Claims that the words meant anything other than the ultimate solution to any political question is always a popular vote are simply ridiculous.

Anyone who actually reads them in context will realise this...

Why the governments $444 million grant wont save the Reef Fight For Our Reef

Wed 15 August 2018

As the leading charity and independent voice for the Great Barrier Reef for over 50 years we wanted to address the controversy surrounding the recent government funding to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.

Our leaders too often underestimate the sheer love we Australians have for the Reef; and the standards to which we Australians from Cairns to Kalgoorlie will hold them in looking after it.

It is no wonder that the Australian Government is under pressure for giving $444 million to a foundation instead of one of its own government agencies. It is no wonder they are being attacked for improper process and for ducking the Reefs biggest threat.

The outsourcing of nearly half a billion dollars of taxpayer funds to a foundation to protect the Great Barrier Reef is unusual by any measure. AMCS believes that there needs to be independent scrutiny and full transparency over how the funding is spent.

But while the media spotlight remains fixed on who got the money and how, the question that really matters is going unexamined: will this money address what the Reef really needs? The answer is no.

Funding to tackle poor water quality and coral-eating Crown of Thorns Starfish plagues is welcome, but it will be wasted unless tough action is taken to mitigate climate change which is the single biggest threat to our Great Barrier Reef. Without getting to the root of the problem and taking strong climate change action the Turnbull Government is gambling with half a billion dollars of public money.

During the summers of 2016 and 2017, our Great Barrier Reef suffered two unprecedented and severe marine heat waves, resulting in the death of about half of all its shallow water corals. If we continue burning fossil fuels at our current rate then severe bleaching events are likely to hit the planets reefs annually by the middle of this century. That would spell the end of the Great Barrier Reef as we know it. The Reef is a core part of who we are as a nation. We can not let this happen.

Australia needs to move beyond thermal coal, stop Adani, stop supporting other new big mines and switch rapidly to renewable energy if our Reef is to have a future. Other developed countries are already well progressed down this path yet Australia, the custodian of this global natural wonder, has an emissions reduction target so weak that if every other country made a commensurate level of effort all the worlds reefs would die.

Our politicians should be in no doubt; the controversy around the Great Barrier Reef Foundation funding shows how much Australians care about our Reef. Yet as a nation Australia is failing to do its fair share on climate change.

Australians, and the world community, exp...

Adani knew about pollution risk and the Queensland authorities were aware of it "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

Contributed from Queensland

Not too much of a surprise really, but the revelation that  both Adani and the Queensland government were aware in advance, that polluted water could be released from the companys Abbot Point coal terminal during cyclone Debbie in 2017, has still sent a little shock wave around the country.

When it came, the Caley Valley wetlands near the Abbot Point terminal, were polluted.

The Adani licence was amended after the, fact, to allow more pollution in other areas, which includes the Great Barrier Reef world heritage area.

As if this was not enough, Adani was caught breaching the new licence by more than 800 percent. It forced the authorities to issue a penalty notice.

All this was in emails obtained by the Mackay Conservation Group, under Queenslands right to information laws, and reported by the ABC last week. Adani unsuccessfully fought the release of the emails.

Particularly sinister, is that Adani knew that its contaminated water was well above the total suspended solids (TSS) normally allowed is 30mg/L and Adanis special conditions, which allowed up to 100 mg/L. The fact that the water contained in the range of 500 to 900 mg/L, was communicated to the department that administers the licence on 28 March.

There was a clear breech and Adani was fined the $12,190. For a multi-billion-dollar company this is nothing and makes a mockery of the law. At the very least, the licence should have been suspended.

Adani fought the fine and release of the emails, because of the fear that they would damage the companys reputation.

Peter McCallum, coordinator of the Mackay Conservation Group, said the emails show the company knew the pollution could occur.

These documents that Adani didnt want released to the public show they were fully aware there was a high concentration of pollutants in the water that would be released, he said.

A company proved to disregard the conditions of its licence is only encouraged, if allowed to effectively get away with it. The Queensland government promised safeg...

Cairns real estate agents want foreign ownership of family homes cairnsnews.org

from Jim OToole

Real estate agent and principal of the Cairns RE/MAX franchise Tony Williamson is heading to South Korea to flog off yet more Cairns property to Asian buyers.

Diverters of social cohesion such as Williamson have helped force up the price of homes keeping young Australians, not Asians out of the market.

Cairns real estate agent Tony Williamson wants to sell our homes to Asians which will keep young Australians out of the home owners market

We do not want greedy real estate agents like Williamson and his entourage of fellow agents hawking our homes to foreign buyers.

About 30 other Remax agents will attend the global networks Asia Pacific convention in Seoul.

Mr Williamson is quoted as saying he wants to turn the global spotlight onto the Cairns property market

Mr Williamson and the entire Remax franchise would do well to hark the recent immigration speech of Senator Fraser Anning.

We do not want any more foreign ownership of any Australian property, Mr Williamson.
