Squaring the Culture




"...and I will make justice the plumb line, and righteousness the level;
then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,
and the waters will overflow the secret place."

Those Green Jobs

Credit Small Dead Animals with the find: kae’s bloodnut blog, from Down Under, reproduces an actual conversation between Senator Barnaby Joyce (henceforth “SBJ”), the Leader of the Nationals in the Australian Senate, and Meghan Quinn (“MQ”), Manager, Climate Change Modelling Division, Aussie Department of the Treasury, regarding how “green” industries would produce jobs. I suspect that this is the true level of detail at which the Truly Environmentally Correct work. It’s just too incredibly rich…

SBJ: These people want to turn up to work what are they actually doing. What do they look like, are they construction workers, are they electricians, are they accountants.

MQ: The actual electricity supply … the people working in the industries. People who are looking after the production of the actual wind farm, the operation of the wind farm. The construction component would be captured by the construction sector.

SBJ: What is the person who is operating the wind farm? What is he or she doing?

MQ: I am not a technical engineer so I don’t think I can answer that question.

SBJ: Have you been to an actual wind farm lately?

MQ: I’ve seen a wind farm, yes.

SBJ: How many people did you see working there?

MQ: Well there was a person taking me around.

SBJ: Generally no one?

MQ: Well I don’t know. There must be some.

SBJ: Been out to a coal mine lately?

MQ: Not lately.

SBJ: From what you have seen on television does it seem like many people working there?

MQ: There has a been a reduction in the share of people working in the mining industry generally.

She hasn’t got a clue in the world.

There’s more. Read the whole thing.

Hi Plumb Bob!Thanks for stopping by.

Barnaby Joyce is pretty good value. He’s right onto these AGW idiots.

Sen Joyce has used the windchimes at Nimbin line before, he’s referring to the most famous dope-smoking hippy-fied, tune out, durn on, drop out places on the east coast of Australia.
