pro wind

A source has sent through the pictures from today’s pro wind rally in Garema Place which has left Alan Jones campaigning against looking even more foolish than usual.

Do we have pics (or can they be linked to) of the Jonesian rally for comparison?

I just went past the Jones rally – looked to be under 100 people there. Looked to be a fairly quiet affair. But hard to compare with the pro-wind power rally in Civic; there could be lots of curious onlookers there who don’t feel strongly one way or the other. As for Parliament House, there just aren’t that many people wandering about, especially on a day like today.

Having said that, GO WIND POWER!

It was a rather nice turnout at the wind rally, and everyone was having a great time.

Hundreds of audience member clapping and making whale song noises along to Bec Taylor and Chris Endrey singing the Sky Whale song is a little Canberra moment I’ll not forget soon.

The sun was in attendance too. The day was really pretty until the rally ended, everyone left, and the sun waddled off to be replaced by rain clouds.

Hmmmm. How do we arrange that?

I guess that Alan Jones wasn’t offering ‘free’ government rebates that the rest of us will pay for…

Next up we’ll have to have a Praise Ra Rally…

I like the idea of one person’s fantasy being destroyed by another person’s fantasy.

Group hugs and several verses of Kumbaya I guess?

You really are an abhorrent person aren’t you?

And there was I, forgetting all about it, slaving away over some poems.

Of all the ‘anti’ windfarm people, the only one I would really like to ask about how he formed his views is Nick Xenophon, as I have a lot of time for his ethical stance on gambling. But I suppose you can be right on one issue, and not on others.

No Xenophon is wrong pretty much whenever he opens his mouth on any issue.

Just goes to show that the Left is better at stacking a rally with stooges and hacks than the Right. It doesn’t change who is right and who is wrong.

How on earth are windfarms a left v right issue?

Surely the industrialisation of the rural landscape is something most of “the right” (the rational ones anyway) would welcome.

Methinks you’re just an idiot.

I thought Jones was originally meant to be at Garema too. I went along hoping to get a bit shouty at him and was rather disappointed. As somebody else said on the other thread – another Convoy of No Consequence.

But the pro-wind power rally was excellent, virtually everyone there was specifically there to here the speakers. Christine Milne and Tony Windsor got rock star receptions.

I had a chat with Tony Windsor about his Lateline interview last night. My footy-busted finger and his farmer’s handshake were a match made in heaven…

Some great speeches by farmers too. Charlie Prell from Crookwell was on fire and Karen from Warborough: I look out my kitchen window on 27 turbines and there are 4X within X kilometres. I have no problems. (Sorry I forgot the numbers.)
