Not a good vid at all in my view. Poor production quality. Script forgettable. Not really funny save perhaps for poorly simulated arousal. The only redeeming feature was the Monteiths sign… which has given me an idea.
I didn’t laugh much either. I thought the fact that Al Gore has just bought a new $8 million dollar home in L.A. with nine bathrooms and six fireplaces rather funnier, he must burn sexy coal, I mean he wouldn’t cut down trees would he.
Where were Lucy, Robyn, Keisha, et al, for the nine years under Labour and the Greens when our
CO2 emissions increased at one of the fastest rates in the OECD ?
When we burnt imported low quality coal at Huntly, diesel at Whirinaki,
because Labour and the Greens talked the trendy green talk but were too useless to actually do anything,
e.g. build any new hydro or to even (gasp) consider nuclear.
Did Helen buy them off with the $80 million grant to “The Arts” after winning in 1999 ?
Was the 70% increase in power prices between 2002 and 2009 a defacto tax to enable vote buying (WFF, interest free loans, etc.)?
And was it therefore in the govt’s interest not to enable a real increase in generating capacity ? (i.e. when the wind is not blowing).?
This whole thing is a political own-goal for National and a gift to the Left (the green Left that is, Labour were worse than National when it comes to the environment – all talk and more hot air).
Gerry Brownlee has shown himself to be a compete political novice over this. He must be arrogant to think middle New Zealand will follow his “lets make some money for the mining companies like Australia do – quick!” idea. The whole thing should not have been trumpeted from the rooftops – but kept at a low profile befitting a mere “discussion document”. Rational, considered and if not on the down-low, then below the radar of twits like these two.
What a pair of dumb-asses. These are the same two who were helping to promote the 40% reduction in CO2 for Greenpeace. That tells you how smart they are… I wonder if that pile of coal at the end was the fossilized remains of used-up Kiwi actors
Just a pair of washed up has been slappers trying to gain more exposure for their sad flagging careers.
These two would know as much about mining in a sensitive area as my anus knows about steamboat navigation – nothing.
There is no area that will be mined within 50 km of where these two appear, once again more twisted fact less emotional bullshit from Greenpeace, who’s motto seems to be “Never let the truth get in the way of a good story”.
Given the numbers are about 10-fold on your EFB protest DPF, surely you could give this one a bit more credit than belatedly posting the Robyn Malcolm/Lucy Lawless Sexy Coal video, with a disclaimer (no reason given) that you don’t agree with the message. The whole troll-farm then goes in to bat for Gerry digging holes.
The writhing in the coal bit would have been heaps better if those two gorgeous ladies had done it naked…
And exactly how can anyone disagree with the message?
You want to burn more coal and fuck the planet for humans even faster?
Sean, it’s not about what individuals do. It’s about what the governments do – they set the rules we all work within, sort of. Mainly within, a little without, would be my guess. All the fat cat western governments need to do is to pay China not to burn coal and we buy ourselves a lot of time – but that window of opportunity is fast disappearing.
And you right wing capitalists who diss Al Gore for being successful have got to be the ultimate hypocrites, surely.
Further, the president of Gas Natural has decided to attack the renewables scheme directly, as revealed in a Libertad Digital article titled “Gas Natural criticizes the government for investing in renewables that we do not need.” He is quoted as asking, “Are we so rich as to invest in something that we do not need? Do we have so much extra money?”
Calzada informs me that the precipitating event for this outburst of honesty was that, in recent weeks, the government has recognized that electricity costs went up 23 percent last year due to subsidies for solar power.
Also helpful was a solar scandal that Calzada described to me a couple of months back but that could not be established as fact at that time: Owners of solar fields had placed oil generators next to their solar fields to simulate more electricity production from the solar panels, for which they were reimbursed at the highly subsidized solar rate.
The scandal was finally uncovered because, after years of conducting this fraud without inspections, the greedy rascals were doing it even at night.
They’re entitled to their opinion but I wish the media would actually take people to task who use celebrity status to promote political views. Can they actually argue the difference between current mining and new mining proposals, can they explain why (in their view) “surgical” mining can’t work, why our coal should stay in the ground but China’s is burned (not that the new proposals are about coal), whether they have been to a place that mining is proposed, why it is wrong to find out what could possibly be mined and then having a debate over the environmental vs economic tradeoffs etc. But no, they just get their name attached to their views and somehow it is meant to mean something.
I mean gee whiz, now that the Warrior Princess is against mining I’ve completely changed my mind. Stop all mining, right now. Save the planet.
