JUMP FOR JOY : NO BHP Olympic Dam Expansion

On Wednesday 22 August 2012 we heard the Great News :

there is to be no further aggressive BHP support for the wanton glutton OBESE POISONOUS DEADLY expansion of the Olympic Dam mine near Roxby Downs in South Australia.

Thank You BHP for this decision in the right direction.

This bit of wise choice could prevent or deter further venture into the deadly Nuclear Horizon where awaits possible World Race War to remove the noxious and pathogenic deviate Human Nuclear Race.

Now let’s all get down to work on shutting down all uranium and other deeply pollutive mines everywhere.

SHUT ROXBY DOWN.

Olympic Dam Quake Alert

Thomas Conlin

The Olympic Dam mine expansion will spark earthquakes up to 6.0 in magnitude in the surrounding region US geologist Edward Cranswick says.

In an advertisement in The Advertiser today, Mr. Cranswick says mining has caused hundreds of earthquakes across Australia.

Mr. Cranswick, who worked as a geophysicist for the US Geological Survey for 22 years, said the Olympic Dam project might cause a magnitude 4.0 or 6.0 quake. That would cause damage to tailing dams and regional communities if it struck in the wrong place, he said.

“The problem about Olympic Dam is that it’s the biggest engineering feat of its sort ever done, so it’s going to produce the biggest stresses,” he said.

A department of the Premier and Cabinet spokesman said the “redistribution of stresses” could “trigger small seismic events” but this was unlikely to lead to any impact on the community.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  on the very morning this article and advertisement appeared in The Advertiser, a Richter 3.3 magnitude earthquake shook the Adelaide area at 2:22 a.m.  An early edition of the same newspaper had additional information about uranium mining and its relation to earthquakes on page 33 but this was “conveniently” removed from the paper for the final edition.

Resist BHP Rally 20 Oct 2011

We showed up at the front of BHP Adelaide at 55 Grenfell Street Adelaide South Australia at about 8 a.m. Thursday 20 October 2011.

We were playing a guitar and casually observing the moment.

A few uniformed BHP security guards were present by the entrance to BHP but there were no visible uniformed police.

Soon we were visited by Mr. David Noonan, former ACF Uranium mining expert. We were glad Mr. Noonan came by to help us protest the massive BHP nuclear uranium mining expansion at its Olympic Dam mine near Roxby Downs.

However, we were curious to know why Mr. Noonan had been fired or “let go” from his work as anti nuclear expert at ACF (ALP Conservation Foundation) in Adelaide and SA. So we asked Mr. Noonan why his work was cut off by ACF. Mr. Noonan replied that ACF made a deliberate decision to axe him.

Then we asked Mr. Noonan if his work position for ACF at the Conservation Council of South Australia was re-instated, would he take back his office there and continue working for public safety and natural security as before, and he answered “YES”.

Getting back to the anti-radiation rally, we were soon joined by people carrying banners and a pickup truck pulled up to drop off some miniature imitation deadly black radioactive waste drums with their imaginary yellow warning
labels.

By 9 a.m. about 30 radical resistance activists with a full array of banners and placards and a public address system were set up and ready to roll in front of BHP Adelaide headquarters.

Speakers began their speeches, some pamphlets and DVD’s were being passed around to passers by.

A distinguished elder of the Arabunna people, Mr. Kevin Buzzacott, arrived to greet us all and give a great speech of resistance directed against those who would destroy the SA outback with wasteful greedy radioactive mining ventures, and subject the age old residents of outback SA to genocide by implementing elimination of water supply from the vast Great Artesian Basin and associated deadly radioactive waste and radon gas vapours.

A SAPOL (SA Police) utility truck with a couple female police officers showed up directly in front of us mob and the girls in blue decided to visit and check out the nearby coffee shop (which perhaps had called in a complaint about a public disturbance in the vicinity).

At about 9:30 some began laying out an inflatable GIANT BLACK RADIATION DRUM and used a portable air generator to pump the drum up to about ten metres high and five metres in diameter in the nearby square. This was soon a very large inflatable object and was fully visible to public and police alike.

Speeches continued from various activists with a notable speech by someone mentioning how People down under would face the natural justice system in the future and how it is best to avoid making a monumental mess and mistake such as the BHP world’s largest open pit mine and large 150 metre tall uranium mine tailings mountains.

Eventually 50 to 100 people were involved or directly associated with the rally in Adelaide’s main central business district on one of its main streets.

An older fellow showed up to blame us for all the problems, but no fists were flung and crowds were cool. Another bugger asked who was paying us to demonstrate and protest.

The rally ended at about 11:30 a.m. or 3 hours after it started.

The TERRIBLE thing was that the News’ media barely even mentioned the event and instead were concentrating on “state politics” and the all-too-convenient departure of the SA premier Mike uRANNium, after his shameful approval for the BHP Olympic Dam mine to go ahead, and ahead of his all-too-convenient possible relocation to Italy to take up the “easy life” with his Italian lover(s), family and friends.

We believe that the recent decision by the SA State government to approve the Roxby Downs Olympic Dam expansion got its commanding impetus from the Mining Syndicate headquartered in New York City, London and Paris, and had no consideration for what the People of South Australia felt, thought or did. Especially the Syndicate and government crooks were busy patting each other on the back the next day to celebrate the all-too-convenient transfer of government power broking to a new puppet SA State Premier : Jay Weatherill.

But perhaps in that name is a message from Nature:

If Uranium then Weather Ill…

If Nuclear then Weather KILL…

We shall see…

May Nature Bless all Good People of Conscience who attended the Resistance Rally and who oppose News World Order plans to destroy Mother Earth with highly radioactive very poisonous toxic Nuclear Energy and Waste.

Coal Seam Gas in the ABC Radio National Interest

Calls for more information and better processes governing coal seam gas – 8 July 2011
listen or download audio as MP3 file
The boom in Queensland’s coal fields is not just a coal boom but a gas boom – coal seam gas that is. The industry markets coal seam gas as climate friendly to coal, because it can fuel power stations with 70% less carbon emissions.
But farmers and environmentalists affected by the expansion of coal seam gas argue that the processes for finding out information about proposed projects, and avenues for objecting to the granting of mining permits, are arcane, unclear and unfair.
In Queensland, the Environmental Defenders Office has written to the State Government to suggest some ways to improve the processes relating to the approval of coal seam gas and coal mining projects. With growing unease in rural and metropolitan areas, the Queensland Government has promised to review the coal seam gas permit system. And now there is growing pressure for Federal intervention.

NOTE:
Some of the great positive gifts of Cyclone Yasi (2011) and recent large-scale rainfall and floods in northeast Australia were

  1. much poison chemical agriculture in QLD was blown off the map and rinsed into the ocean, with the Great Barrier Reef receiving the pollution in diluted, albeit still poisonous, rinse water
  2. there was splendid relief for drought-stricken South Australia and other inland areas along the Murray Darling Basin that had been repeatedly refused water by their piggish swine-like often queenly neighbours
  3. a large number of these totally horrible toally wretched coal mines in QLD had their shafts and undergound operations flooded into dark dank drowning oblivion, temporarily putting an end to the undermining of some of the best agricultural land in Australia.

We are greatly thankful to Nature (the Boss) for these Miracles, and hope Nature can also prevent other portions of the human greedy Mining Boom from Mining Bombs of the nuclear variety, via idiot Uranium mining, and metal for car bombs (polluting automobiles) that, along with alcohol and other sundry useless human “must have” items, were never part of Australia, America, Arabia, Africa or anywhere.
