      • Dougal10, Isn’t there a massive problem with Tiwai points generation in that it’s not compatible with normal NZ usage and requires some major modifications to be transferred to our power network??

          • i believe since tiwai played games a few years back theyve upgraded the transmission lines and added extra lines so they can poke a fair bit of manapouri generation into the grid should the need arise. dont think it could take full capacity but a fair chunk of it.

            think theyve also done the same from benmore through to cook straight aswell. theres also big wind farms in the pipeline down here that should they be successful in gaining consent will need a fairly chunky transmission line to get the electricity where its needed. (kaiwera looking to add another 100 turbines, slopedown want 150-200 built there)

      Although I can’t currently recall the ratio’s, from memory it takes THREE tonnes (Possibly more) of timber to obtain the energy generated by ONE tonne of coal, which is why coal became so popular during the Industrial Revolution in Europe.

      On that basis therefore, Fonterra will now be buying MORE ‘energy-type’ material (i.e, ‘wood’) than previously to achieve the same end result, with the additional consequence of these ‘wood’ purchases, being the depletion of large (Immense) numbers of trees- the very plants which are generate the oxygen necessary for continued life on planet Earth.

      While no doubt the Fonterra Board Members really, truly, believe that they are ‘saving the planet’, the phrase ‘Go woke, go broke’ DOES come to mind,

      I wonder how long it will be before the farmer shareholders wake up to the fact that they are being conned and start asking questions about the additional costs from ‘going gween’.

      Time will tell.

      • Quite correct but rather than Farmer shareholders it seems to be a more important matter for Fonterra shareholders and The TAXPAYER who no doubt has and will continue to pay for this garbage.

        We the taxpayer will have to pay for the roading, the various subsidies attached to the Emission scheme and so on.

      • Not enough Biomass in NZ to power the green fevered dreams. They’d need to cut down every green living tree and feed it into the environmentally friendly wood burners to match NZ energy requirements. Those biomass burners might easily be converted to humans though, and the greens have no intention of going in first. It’s you they want.

  3. SHTF incoming!!
    NO OTHER HUMAN ENDEAVOR ON EARTH CREATES A GREATER NEED FOR MORE BORROWED DOLLARS THAN WAR…
    Here, in what was once the United States of America, the National Debt is rising by ONE TRILLION DOLLARS every ONE HUNDRED DAYS… and this is just the beginning.
    Soon this number will drop to 80 days, then 70 days, then 50 days…
    Hyper-debt is a symptom of a worldwide systemic meltdown.
    What this REALLY comes down to is a FULL-ON LIQUIDITY CRISIS on a scale which has never been seen before…moreover, it is going to get enormously worse very fast.

  4. SCIENCE: BREAD IS DANGEROUS

    1. More than 98 percent of convicted criminals are
    bread users.

    2. Fully HALF of all children who grow up in bread-
    consuming households score below average on
    standardised tests.

    3. In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was
    baked in the home, the average life expectancy
    was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were
    unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth;
    and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, and
    influenza ravaged whole nations.

    4. More than 90 percent of violent crimes are committed
    within 24 hours of eating bread.

    5. Bread has been proven to be addictive. Subjects
    deprived of bread and given only water to eat, begged
    for bread after as little as two days.

    6. Bread is often a “gateway” food item, leading the
    user to “harder” items such as butter, jelly, peanut
    butter, and even cream cheese.

    7. Bread has been proven to absorb water. Since the
    human body is more than 90 percent water, it follows
    that eating bread could lead to your body being taken
    over by this absorptive food product, turning you into
    a soggy, gooey, bread-pudding person.

    8. Newborn babies can choke on bread.

    9. Bread is baked at temperatures as high as 450
    degrees Fahrenheit! That kind of heat can kill an
    adult in less than two minutes.

    10. Most Kiwi bread eaters born after 2000 are utterly unable
    to distinguish between climate and weather.

    • From WG’s link:

      ……”She argued that, as a small and relatively well-off country, New Zealand emits more than its fair share of greenhouse gasses.

      “Our neighbours in the Pacific need us to do the right thing,” she said. “……..

      Bugger the neighbours. Even were her hypothesis valid I’d rather be ‘relatively well-off’ than freeze to death in the dark!

      • Why are we financially tasked with incentivizing our Pacific neighbours so they can attempt a shitty, fake, impossible goal? Pull all funding. Pretty soon we’ll look like net zero super heroes in comparison. Because perception is what all this CC bullshit is about anyway.

  6. It is a dark and rainy Sunday morning in the Waikato. The drought has truly broken and my orchids are loving the rainwater. Have a great day whatever you’re doing and your cognitive abilities are sharper than sad old Biden’s.

    Italian TV MOCKS Joe Biden In ‘Hilarious’ Sketch Of President’s On-Stage Gaffes

    In a recent viral skit from an Italian TV show, the cognitive abilities of President Joe Biden were put under the spotlight once again. The comedic interpretation of Biden struggling on stage outside the White House has sparked a debate on social media about his mental state and ability to lead the country.

    British Elites FREAK OUT Over George Galloway Election Win!

    The Jimmy Dore Show

    British firebrand, truth-teller and Palestinian rights supporter George Galloway has won a by-election in the Rochdale district in Manchester, and the United Kingdom elite is flipping out. Even Prime Minister Rishi Sunak felt compelled to speak out against Galloway, who announced in his victory speech, “This is for Gaza!”

  8. I see that apart from Thomas Kingston (Apparently was once Pippa Middleton’s beau) who is Lady Gabriella Kingston’s husband, dying from a “traumatic head wound”, that, William has been in the news for allegedly bonking a bird on the side and Kates disappearance is due to some mysterious illness.
    The conspiracy theory side of it has been generated by the press, who say conspiracy theorists are becoming a problem.

    In other enthralling news, I have just discovered cat biscuit fragments floating in the milk jug and that the cat has his back to me, whilst preening himself.

    • Open the books on this phase 3 experimental trial bought in by “Emergency Use Approval” EUA that wiped out all the usual checks, ongoing & timely monitoring, quality control, so called “informed consent” etc..
      .
      …. An OIA request H202117570 published on January 12th 2022 confirms that Medsafe, our medicines regulatory authority, was made aware of an extensive range of side effects of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine prior to its provisional approval.
      This included the information contained in the damning Cumulative analysis of post-authorization adverse event reports of Pfizer bnt162b2 dated 28 February 2021.
      Yet Medsafe failed to advise the public of any risks for some months, instead telling the public COVID-19 vaccines were beyond doubt ‘safe and effective’.
      .
      As late as December 2021, Director General of Health Dr. Ashley Bloomfield, whilst then belatedly admitting the risk of myo/pericarditis, was, as we reported in May last year, minimising its possible prevalence in his public statements and communications with District Health Boards. …..
      .
      …….. Medsafe, are funded by the pharmaceutical industry they are supposed to regulate, which fosters a cosy if not corrupt relationship. …..
      .
      ….. mRNA and other biotech vaccines ….. ….. introduced despite early warning signals of serious harm at high rates.
      There was no long term testing data …. …. but crucially nor was there any adequate on-going plan in place to monitor the missing long term effect data according to the canons of accepted risk assessment and criteria of causality. ….
      .
      ……… Health New Zealand, the courts, and the government are still pursuing a campaign to discredit a sincere and principled whistleblower raising the alarm about excess deaths, whilst ignoring their own recently released figures, ……

      https://hatchardreport.com/how-did-the-medicines-regulatory-system-fail-us-so-badly/
      .
      So who is funding Bloomfield now?
      .
      What, Who in New Zealand, are the systemic connective ties that is stopping the flow of all the raw data for independent research & study of an Emergency Use Approval, for a phase 3 experimental trial.

    • Civil servants’ jobs would be on the line if they were to admit that they made errors over the COVID-19 mRNA treatments. The narrative and the civil service must be protected above all else.

      What happens when the sons or daughters of these civil servants suddenly die in the prime of their lives? (That is assuming that they received the mRNA treatments.)

      If there was some shadowy and sinister organization behind all of this, it would want to maintain the health and welfare of its minions (the civil servants) lest they revolt. There would have to be a system of saline shots for the top minions and their family members.

      What some bright researcher should do is run a study comparing the rate of “vaccine accidents” between the top government officials (and their families) and that of the general population. (You would have to correct for the higher level of income and health care generally received by top government workers, compared with the general population.)

        First get all the rqw data out there so any can research, study & see what patterns arise.

        That data should be turned over to number of those renowned statisticians, as well as publicly available.

    • Payback is a bitch.
      For years US has supplied weapons to Saudi Arabia to attack these people.

      No sympathy for the payback.
      You destabilase a country and these events flow.
      This is a critical area for trade.
      Another undeclared war by the USA.

      Noting that not just USA but England set up so much of the trouble.
      Lied to all the Arabs that helped them in 1914 to 18.
      Divided the Kurds into 3 countries.
      The US has committed multiple coups there during and since ww2.
      Not withstanding their interference with coups in Central and South America.

      And now South America and other dodgies are streaming into the USA daily.
      Eeh up . Trouble ahead.

      US is trying to make the world Bi-polar. …With the yanks or Against the yanks.
      They don’t even like neutrality.
      NB. recent countries to join NUTO

      India is messing up their plans ( quarter of worlds population) by being in both camps.
      There are evil critters behind all this orchestrating it.

    • We can add to the example of what happens should you hit a medium size NZ pothole as shown in the clip. When I was about 30 YO my boss shouted for what he estimated as my million mile (truck) mark yet forty plus years later I still can’t force myself to concentrate on the road when the speed is choked to 30kph.

      Remove all challenge, all need for concentration & the human mind starts to shut down.

      • nasska, go drive autosteer farm machinery and see how bad the mind gets.
        its so true, from what ive seen theres more fuckups using tech thats supposed to make our lives easier and hassle free but because people now sit there like brain dead zombies and no need to concentrate on the task at hand then very basic shit gets overlooked and things go pear shaped.
        the repercussions in a paddock wont be near as bad as on the road tho i guess but still same concept.

        dont know how the hell city goons put up with hours jammed up in traffic that just crawls, 30km road works are shit enough, even 50km around town is gay as aids and booooring enough to lose attention.

  9. was at a mates place and hes also buddies with the local pig who just happened to stop in for a cuppa to fill in some time (lazy rural cop just being a nosey cnut really).

    anyways he rekons the new gang patch thing is retarded as fuck and not going to work, i think the same too tbh. removing the main identifying symbols that theyre gang scum yet at the same time theyre eventually gunna have to identify the same gang scum to enforce the consorting order thing.
    personally id rather know that theres a pos gang scum in my presence rather then them be incognito if theyre lacking the face tatts etc.
    imo the new laws will do sweet fuck all its just low hanging fruit that gives good feels to a few without making and substantial improvement to kiwis lives.

    its pretty easy now for witnesses to identify patched members involved in crimes, now theyre just gunna get smeared racist arseholes for reporting them as maori instead of a patched gang member.

    making being in a gang an agreivating factor is about the only good thing theyve done, consortion i dont really agree with either. all they had to do was force judges to dish out meanigfull sentences to get scum off the streets and keep them off instead of the catch and release shinanigans that goes on.

    • can you imagine those karen policewomen going up to a big feral pos and asking them to take off their patch???

      gang bros usually respect those requests in private establishments like pubs etc but they absolutely hate the pigs so its likely gunna end in a scrap or a few cops retreating.

      btw the new law is all about stopping intimidation… by using intimidation. how fucking retarded is that!

      police are the biggest gang in the country, many will say theyre intimidating too, plenty of cases in the past few years to demonstrate thuggish behaviour, corruption and just general scumery on their part… maybe they should be subject to the new laws too?

      from what ive seen theres not many safeguards to stop the govt expanding the group of who they determine “gangs”. currently they are criminal gangs but just think to how the ardern govt couldve abused these powers through the covid madness? vff, tamakis crew and the various other groups couldve easily ended up on the list. whats to stop a power hungry govt adding opposition parties etc like their mate zelensky done in ukraine? low probability i know but do safeguards exist to prevent that?
