The worlds largest solar installation to take over prime agricultural land

As you're all aware, I've called for a Senate Inquiry into solar panels here in Australia. You can read the press release I put up this morning.I've been out inspecting what will be the largest solar installation in the world, established by what appears to be the Chinese Government and approved on prime agricultural land just outside Brisbane. Not only is it taking up perfectly good cattle country, but the panels will be installed in a well-known hail zone that flows into the Brisbane River and into the country's 3rd largest city's drinking supply.If cadmium and lead are as toxic as I'm led to believe, why would we risk an environmental catastrophe by positioning the worlds largest solar plant within close proximity to the Brisbane river? Wouldn't you think these heavy metals would leach into the water supply of 2 million people?I don't think the council has given this adequate consideration and I will be asking for the Mayor to give me a 'Please Explain'.#Auspol #OneNation #PaulineHanson #Solar #Kilcoy #Harlin

Beef Kicked Out For Solar Farms

As you’re all aware, I’ve called for a Senate Inquiry into solar panels here in Australia. You can read the press release I put up this morning.

I’ve been out inspecting what will be the largest solar installation in the world, established by what appears to be the Chinese Government and approved on prime agricultural land just outside Brisbane.

Not only is it taking up perfectly good cattle country, but the panels will be installed in a well-known hail zone that flows into the Brisbane River and into the country’s 3rd largest city’s drinking supply.

If cadmium and lead are as toxic as I’m led to believe, why would we risk an environmental catastrophe by positioning the worlds largest solar plant within close proximity to the Brisbane river? Wouldn’t you think these heavy metals would leach into the water supply of 2 million people?

I don’t think the council has given this adequate consideration and I will be asking for the Mayor to give me a ‘Please Explain’.

    Why can’t the worlds largest solar farm be ten or a hundred times as big and built out near Birdsville where there’s no farming and blazing sunshine all year round?

    Brisbane streets are clogged every Friday and Saturday night with countless uber, olas, lyfts,shebs etc cruising desperately for fares. Charge them a Congestion/Pollution fee and clean up the air and the streets.

      Yes Mick you are right. TAXIS cannot get drivers so it is the ridesourcing that is clogging up our streets> Worse still the Ridesource drivers are netting income way below the minimum wage. Time they woke up and drove a Taxi where they earn 50% of what they take. The owner pays all operating costs.. The more drivers Uber & such have the higher they value their business. Why should people work for peanuts to make big bucks for Multinationals….the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, Look at the big picture,.

    Thankyou Pauline for fighting on our behalf and letting us know about the dreadful recycling properties of these so called renewables. The proven method of coal powered stations work and more clean HELE stations should be built, using our resources instead of shipping everything off shore.

    Ms Hanson,

    Are you aware that the Labor Victorian Premier intends to spend over a billion dollars that he must borrow to create what he brags is going to be Australia’s biggest wind farm at Rokewood in Victoria. Rokewood is just a little south west of Ballarat.
    This installation of windmills is to cover 267 square kilometres of prime farmland and I am led to believe that it is in the path of migrating birds.
