UN Agenda 21 arises in some communication. This UN campaign is being exposed by state MPs and local councillors across Australia.

The Wide Bay electorate branch of the Liberal National Party in Queensland recently passed the following motion: "That the LNP opposes laws and/or regulations being made by Local, State and Federal governments that enact the policy objectives of United Nations Agenda 21." The Wide Bay electorate is currently held by Warren Truss, Deputy Leader of the Opposition and parliamentary Leader of the Nationals.

Registered Post envelopes were sent to all 226 federal MPs (see below). The contents detailed extensive documented corruption destroying Australian sovereignty, governance and economic security. Taxpayers pay MPs large salaries to represent the nation's interests and the people's interests. MPs are responsible for expenditure and for our federation's constitution. Yet only thirteen MPs responded. None demonstrated that they take responsibility. Why not?

Malcolm's letter to Greg Hunt 7th March, 2013
Greg Hunt: Graham Williamson's analysis - documents questioning UN Agenda 21

UN Agenda 21 has not been ratified by parliament. Nor have the people ratified it. The Greens party admits it's part of their policy. UN Agenda 21 is documented as part of ALP policy (Paragraphs from page 243 of ALP's 2004 platform) yet not publicly discussed. Some Liberal MPs have pushed it covertly for around two decades. It was stated in the 1990's as part of Liberal policy and likely still is. Some MPs reportedly have been pushing it yet deny doing so.

Graham Williamson's detailed documents revealing UN Agenda 21 being implemented stealthily across Australia are available here:
www.galileomovement.com.au/australia_democracy.php

UN Agenda 21 includes unfounded climate alarm fabricated and pushed by the UN to cede national governance and sovereignty over energy, resource use, property rights, finances, transport and mobility. It's our greatest threat to individual freedom. A second component is UN ‘Biodiversity' stealing private property rights. The third component is UN ‘Sustainability' regulating and restricting people, energy, resources, finances and property. These three prongs are underway in Australia, America and other nations. As Americans awaken, their states are now banning UN Agenda 21.

Why won't Australian politicians discuss UN Agenda 21? Some MPs seem genuinely ignorant of UN Agenda 21. Others are quietly and stealthily pushing this campaign for control by unelected UN bureaucrats outside Australia. Why the secrecy? They likely know Australians will reject it. It contravenes our constitution. See Appendix 14 in CSIROh! report: www.conscious.com.au/CSIROh!.html.

Letter to Greg Hunt dated 3rd October, 2013 confirming his lack of empirical scientific evidence and logical scientific reasoning for his unfounded claim that output of HUMAN carbon dioxide be cut. His claim contradicts empirical scientific evidence and is based on corruption of climate science. Letter requests the basis for his position advocating cutting HUMAN CO2 and wasting billions of dollars on his 'Direct Action' plan.

Which MPs, if any, do you think take responsibility? Who is going to take action to end corruption of climate science? Who takes responsibility for ending abuse of taxpayer funds? Who protects taxpayers?

We all need to take Action

As citizens and voters we get the governance we deserve. Freedom requires holding each other accountable, especially those governing FOR us on OUR BEHALF. Experience since 2008 reveals Australia is not being governed by parliament operating as required under our constitution. Instead, we're 'governed' by a handful of powerbrokers controlling each party's preselections.

Major parties contain MPs with strong sceptical beliefs on climate. Despite being the parliamentary majority these MPs are cowed into silence through fear of dissenting. They're not representing electorates. This is not democracy.

Please hold all MPs, especially leaders accountable. Here are four actions we can all take:
1. Contact MPs and hold them personally accountable. MPs' contact details are here:
House of Reps: www.aph.gov.au/~/media/03%20Senators%20and%20Members/32%20Members/Lists/memlist.ashx
Senate: www.aph.gov.au/Senators_and_Members/Guidelines_for_Contacting_Senators_and_Members/%7E/media/972C67136DC0488CB81E78611B907282.ashx

2. Before the election, ask candidates where they stand on climate AND on UN Agenda 21. If they claim they don't know, direct them to resources (see below) and insist they reply after learning. If they say they'll do whatever their party instructs, tell them they're answerable to we voters. Our vote depends on their answer and their commitment to us. They have to earn our vote by meeting our needs. We're the decision maker. We, the voters, are sovereign over MPs.

3. Ask our friends to do the same;

4. Spread the word so that we restore accountability.

Most MPs are well-intentioned. For everyone's sake, approach them and help them develop spines. We get the governance we deserve. It's up to us, Australia's citizens and voters.

Freedom of Information requests made:

(1) CSIRO - Key correspondence

After months of bureaucratic exchanges, Malcolm Roberts' FOI request was modified to be as follows:

Copies of CSIRO advice, briefings, analysis and reports discussing human causation of global warming (aka climate change) from CSIRO's Chief Executive to the following members of federal parliament during the respective periods as defined:

  • To John Howard Prime Minister from 2005 to 2007;
  • To the Minister for the Environment being Senator Ian Campbell in 2005 and January 2006 and Malcolm Turnbull from January 2006 to December 3, 2007;
  • To Kevin Rudd when Leader of the Opposition in 2007;
  • To Penny Wong when Climate Change Minister from 2007 to 2010;
  • To Greg Combet when Climate Change Minister from 2010 to present
I specifically exclude the following from the scope of my request:
  • Output from computerised numerical models* and empirical observational data*;
  • Material already published and available to the public;
  • Third party material.
* Note that outputs from computerised numerical models are not required since they are not empirical scientific evidence. Observational data is not required since I do not wish to cause CSIRO to do extensive analysis specifically to fulfil my request. (i.e., I do not want CSIRO to produce a special report for me from their data from the 1940's. Any such data should already be used in their public reports and reports to MPs)

CSIRO's decision (quoting CSIRO)

"Despite an extensive search, CSIRO has been unable to identify any document relevant to your request. I must therefore refuse access, pursuant to section 24A of the FOI Act on the basis that the document(s) sought do not exist or cannot be found."

Conclusion
Neither the current CSIRO Chief Executive nor her predecessor Chief Executive provided any reports, briefings, analysis or advice to the Prime Minister or Opposition Leader and relevant responsible senior Ministers on causation of global warming (aka climate change) during the period 2005 to 2010.

(2) BOM - Key correspondence

At BOM's instigation on 18th March, 2013 I revised my FOI request of BOM to: "I am willing to change the scope of my request made under FOI provisions to the following:
  1. Copies of BoM advice, briefings, analysis and reports regarding global warming (aka climate change) to: the Howard Government from 2005 to 2007; Penny Wong when Climate Change Minister from 2007 to 2010 and Greg Combet when Climate Change Minister from 2010 to present.
  2. Copies of internal BoM advice, briefs, reports and analysis to BoM Executives on global warming (aka climate change) from 2005 onwards.
  3. I am happy to specifically exclude the following from the scope of my request;
  • empirical observational data and output from computerised numerical models*;
  • material already published and available to the public;
  • third party material.
* Note that output from computerised numerical models are not required since they are not empirical scientific evidence. Observational data is not required since I do not wish to cause BOM to do particular analysis to meet my request.

BOM's Released Documents

The documents contain no empirical scientific evidence and logical scientific reasoning showing that human carbon dioxide caused or will cause global warming.

The documents contain many falsities and reveal that BOM has misled parliament by spreading UN IPCC misrepresentations and fabrications under the false guise of being scientific and seemingly endorsed by BOM.

The February 16th 2005 Briefing is riddled with errors and falsities. The approach is inherently unscientific as it relies on consensus not empirical scientific evidence. It contradicts empirical scientific evidence and relies on discredited data. The document accurately admits beneficial impact of warming in the last 10,000 years.

BOM's "Climate Change Updates" rely on the demonstrably corrupt UN IPCC. They contain no empirical scientific evidence or logical scientific reasoning for the claim that human carbon dioxide causes global warming. The parroted core claim (of human causation) originating in the UN IPCC contradicts empirical scientific evidence, climate and Nature.

The Update dated 27 May 2009 pretends new issues, apparently in response to the growing public realisation as to the lack of evidence of human causation. It adds new falsities and conjures new spurious possibilities that reveal BOM either doesn't understand climate or misrepresents climate. It cherry-picks short term data and purports it as evidence. An entirely normal drought is falsely claimed to be unusual.

Other documents contain implied exaggerations and others contain propaganda. BOM seems to be lazily repeating earlier reports and implying possibly unusual events from normal weather events such as rains ending the drought.

BOM uses normal weather events and implies them to be unusual and evidence of unusual climate change caused by humans. This contradicts empirical scientific evidence.

There is no mention of global temperature stasis since 1997/1998.

Note that the FOI request unearthed no internal briefings on global warming (aka climate change) within the BOM. Given the topic's significance and many public BOM reports, that seems, at the very least to be unusual.

This apparently is the fare on which our federal politicians have been repeatedly misled on climate.
