By Hereward Fenton

Joanne NovaTonight we welcome Joanne Nova to the show.

Joanne is one of Australia's most articulate and outspoken climate sceptics. Her website is an international hub for informed discussion on questions of climate, carbon trading and the economy.

Joanne's husband, Dr. David Evans, is a mathematician and engineer, with six university degrees including a PhD from Stanford University, who formerly worked at the Australian Greenhouse office (now the Department of Climate Change), modeling Australia’s carbon in plants, debris, mulch, soils, forestry and agricultural products. Together, Joanne and her husband have lectured extensively across the country on why the carbon tax is a flawed solution to a non-existent problem.

In tonight's discussion Joanne talks about the reasons why she became sceptical of mainstream climate science, and gives us her opinion on the possiblility of rolling back the carbon tax. We also talk about the Occupy Australia movement and our hope that this popular movement may come to realise that "carbon trading" is an extremely dubious commodity market overseen by a predatory and corrupt banking system - the very thing they are protesting against.

From Joanne's website:

Jo Nova is a science communicator, she’s presented science on TV, radio, on stage, in cartoons, exhibitions, reports and now in her blog which over 200,000 people visited in 2009.

After winning prizes in her science degree in molecular biology, Joanne joined the Shell Questacon Science Circus and spent five years touring Australia first as a performer, then as manager of the half million dollar exhibition with a team of twelve. As an associate lecturer at ANU Joanne helped to develop the Graduate Diploma in Science Communication in its earliest years.

In the last two years Joanne has focused on the science of monetary systems, financial history, the gold market, and has also become heavily involved in communicating the science of carbon’s role in Climate Change. Joanne attended the UNFCCC in Bali Dec 07 as a delegate, has spoken in New York at the International Climate Change Conference, and to Staffers of the US Senate in Washington, as well as to Australian leaders of business and banking at Consilium, for the Centre for Independent Studies.

Over 220,000 copies of The Skeptics Handbook have been published, printed and distributed in the US, Australia, NZ and Sweden. It was done entirely pro bono, and volunteers have translated it into French, German (twice), Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Turkish, Japanese, Danish, Portuguese, Balkan, Spanish and Thai. Italian, Lao, Slovenian and Dutch versions are coming.

In the final segment of the show I am joined on the phone by protester Steph, directly from the the Occupy Sydney rally at Martin Place. In this bombshell interview Steph confirms that the movement is being co-opted and infiltrated by the Green Left, exactly as we described in our previous show.

The good news is that many of the people at the protest are awake to what is going on, and are working hard to keep the group open and, as Steph puts it, beyond the left/right paradigm, which is merely a tool for the oligarchy to keep people controlled and divided.

I hope you enjoy tonight's show!

Dr Evans is a lucky man to have such an intellegent and obviously attentive wife!
In my quest for the truth in all news items, my wife has kept her beliefs, and bias, and run with whatever the mainstream media (TV and Talkback radio) has portrayed as the ‘truth’.
Life would be easier to have been born a sheep!
Keep up your quality interviews
All power to Truth News Radio!

I challenge Mr Fenton to interview me on his so called Truth radio.
He has done a mountain of work avoiding the truth.
That being what is written in our law.
He will mention every topic except the biggest world shaping event of modern history
The Protestant Revolution.
Why pretend to care about 911 when the perpetrators were members of the Knights of Malta. Arguably controlled by the Jesuits, but inarguably owing loyalty to the pope by oath.

He will hear any opinion you can think of but mine.

And why has he banned me from commenting on facebook?

By Dave on 2011 10 24 - 13:45:03

Carbon tax is all about subverting the rights we have under law as free men.
We have explicit rights whilst we are under the Crown.
The true Bill of Rights wasnt created by the founding fathers of USA.That is brainwashing pseudo-history.
It was created in England via rebellion against the Crown and Rome.
Americans had all those freedoms under law PRIOR to the revolution.
Except freedom of religion, or essentially freedom to be roman catholic.

This law was written ingeniously to survive all efforts to pervert it as long as we are under the Crown.

However if you take away the Crown and give our soverignty over to the United Nations we then lose our law dating back to the Magna Carta.
Australians who give a damn, please take 5 minutes to read the Bill of Rights 1689, and understand the importance of the doctrine of reception which makes plain they pertain to Australians.

This also pertains in one way or another to every free country in the world.
Fake “truthers” such as Lord Monkton and Julian Assange would have us arguing about the science whilst the true debate goes by quietly unseen.
Carbon Tax agenda is not about money or pollution or science or big business or socialism.

It is about our RIGHTS UNDER LAW and the removal of them through handing over our very Soverignty to the roman Catholic United nations.

If anyone would like to know more please ask Mr Fenton to let me express my opinion on the only media I can find of its type in Australia.

Australians need to know what’s going on very soon or it will be too late . The carbon tax law is irreversible.

By Dave on 2011 10 24 - 17:55:52

Dave, it would be interesting to hear your point of view.
Surely there aren’t only 2 options; either Catholicism or Protestantism based on a Bible written by men of which we cannot even see the original document.

By 7akar1 on 2011 10 25 - 08:08:15

Protoestantism is a rejection of the Universal world rule of the self proclaimed godking - the Pope.
There is no central protestant power.
I am not Irish nor do I care about Ireland or what most people associate with Protestantism.
I wish there was another word for it that helped people grasp what Protestantism is , so they would be open minded enough to learn history independantly.
And that it all revolves around the Roman Church’s desire to run the world.
Forget about the religious aspect if that bothers you.

This is the key to the so called truth movement.

Forget about the illimunati also . This is the ruse to lead people who have discovered the truth, further on down the rabbit hole.

The devil is smarter than men.

All roads lead to Rome.

By Dave on 2011 10 26 - 11:31:15

The pope claims to be a God/emperor I shouldve said , sorry.

It isnt a 2 sided thing catholic versus protestant.

There is one body trying to rule the world.

You either accept them or protest them

Most of us accept through ignorance, sadly.

By Dave on 2011 10 26 - 11:44:05

Nova’s comments are based upon cherry picked data.

In science, this is not a good reputation to have.

Although I agree with many of their ideas, the forces reigned against RAM are too great, violent, statist and reactionary for them to remain a non-political, broad based, multi-ethnic, community protest group for much longer. The Left and their Antifa nihilist fellow travelers are already pushing them towards the extreme Right, by calling them racists and Islamophobes and so on. Whilst the extreme Right have aligned themselves with RAM. With fascists of the Left and Right pressuring them they will not be able to remain beyond the Left-Right divide and will inevitably move to the Right - the extreme Right. Which is already happening. A development which will alienate decent Australians of all ethnic backgrounds many of whom currently support them. 

The RAM leadership have already established open alliances with the Patriotic Front (the ape in the photograph is a Patriot Front supporter at a recent Richmond demonstration) Australia First and Golden Dawn, a Greek neo-Nazi party. Members of these collectivist groups are currently attending RAM demonstrations all over Australia.

There is a real need in Australia to establish a political movement beyond the Left-Right divide and their vested interests, a movement that questions the current direction Australia is heading i.e. the direction the Left/Right and their extremes would like to take it; that questions the efficacy of state sponsored multiculturalism, as opposed to a proper, non-discriminatory immigration policy; that questions the validity of political correctness; that is politically neutral, anti-war and pro environment; that is opposed to all collectivists ideologies (fascisms of the Left and Right); that would dismantle the power pyramids of corporations and banks and their ability to impact on government; that would dissolve all anti-terror laws and all laws that impose on the rights and freedom of the individual and the people.

I second Keith’s assertion that Mike Holt from Restore Australia is very much a fake.  He bangs on about Halaal being a scam and money maker for Islam (and no I don’t support Halaal whatsoever), but makes excuses for its counterpart Kosher as being a somehow legitimate.  Double standards?  When I confronted him about this fact he went off on a convoluted tirade about Israel being some sort of “Bastion of Democracy” in the middle east…Really!, I will leave that one up to the readers to decide on.  I found that MH came across as disingenuous to say the least.

Without doubt, TNR is one of the best, if not the best alternative news source on the net. Which doesn’t mean Herewood is always right. His job, I believe, is to present the facts as he sees them as an objectively as possible, without fear or favor.  For this, he has my respect and support. But I believe he needs to be careful and to think a little deeper about the problems of “racism,” in Australia. He has labelled the Reclaim Australia Movement as racist. I’m wondering if his objectivity is a little weak on this point, a little without foundation.

Of course all political movements have its fringe groups and individuals. We make a distinction between, for example, a Muslim and a fundamentalist Muslim (Islamist), and by so doing we don’t claim that all Muslims are blood thirsty fanatics. If its good for the Muslims, then its good for RAM, which is bound to attract a few lunatics and real racists. But to brand the entire movement as “racist” is wrong; it is the same ploy that is used by the mainstream media and its left-wing, establishment Marxist boot boys.

One of the first things I noticed when i attended a RAM rally recently were the amount of non-white people in attendance, including Aboriginals. In fact the main banner of RAM contains an Australian flag and an Aboriginal flag. Speakers at their rallies have included Jews, Arabs, Indians, Aboriginals, Chinese and so on. What does this tell you? Is this really a fascist-Nazi-racist movement whose stated aim are the eradication and exclusion of other cultures, in place of some sort of Aussie white Reich, or is this just propaganda that is being propagated by the left for their own political interests. Consequently, we all know where the culmination of their politics have led, historically speaking, which are to the imposition of terror and dictatorships.

We can be thankful for small mercies, in terms of the Left, which today mostly tends to attract collectivists, establishmentarians and the privileged sons and daughters of the upper bourgeoisie, who seems to share one thing in common, nativity….

Mike Holt from Restore Australia is very much a fake.  He hasn’t even been citizen for but a few years.  But, he makes out like he was born there.  ALSO - this guy spent 30 years in Thailand working shady businesses.  I would wager that his primary purpose in being an activist is that he wants to make money off selling merchandise.

good to see you putting out some new shows heraward

freely the banana girl is to a certain extent a troll, as is her boyfriend durian rider. they have been trolling the fitness community on youtube for some time… and yes they are extreme but they are also trolls. They use their trolling to spread their message. currently, another dude called vegangains is trolling the fitness community as well.

i am a vegetarian, and it was seeing this documentary on the pork industry that started me on the vegetarian path. for anyone interested, its pretty off the charts disturbing and its australian as well. its pretty much made by dudes breaking into pork farms and filming what they find

Would the world be better if people cared where their food came from? probably, they might then care about other things too

do you become a better person if you dont eat meat? i feel like a better person mainly because animals aren’t being hurt because of me. i dont feel humans have to eat meat really… or at least not much. How can you watch that documentary on pork, know that that is pretty much whats going on and turn a blind eye to it? I think its basic empathy and just saying well ‘i like bacon so yeah’ is in my opinion wrong and i can see freleys point of view to an extent. In my opinion, at least these people believe in something. i see my money as my vote, henceforth im ethical as to what i do with it. free range eggs became mainstream for exactly this reason… although im pretty sure woolies and coles lobbied the state to change the definition of the word ‘free range’ at some point. I dont eat beef because the amount of resources that go into growing a cow are pretty crazy. Think about how much grass that cow needs to eat before it is harvested and how much space it requires. think of how many vegies you could grow in the same space with the same amount of water. lamb? comon, think about what your doing here… but that being said i think most vegans are total loons. People like freeley should be advocating for the destruction of lions and tigers, as lions and tigers murder other animals in truly horrific style. if we humans are smart enough to not harm animals, then we should be stopping the animals that harm other animals from existing. Freeley also kills birds when she flies in aeroplanes so she is a hypocrite.

feminism is one of the biggest problems in society today and although there is some valid historical basis to it, the liberation of the human female from their biology is in my opinion largely a product of the technological advance of humans. sufferagettes where never machine gunned on the streets, unlike the men that where drafted and sent off to war to die just a few years earlier. as technology has advanced, women have advanced as well, however now its going way too far and is pretty blatantly anti male in many respects. i view feminism in its modern context as a tool of the social marxists that really isnt doing society a great deal of good at this time. its screwing up gender dynamics and is wrecking women and men for each other. i see it as low frequency, lowest common denominator idiocy, just like a lot of the the race baiting ‘is this racist’ stuff getting around that is being perpetuated pretty much as a distraction, divide and conquer strategy by the power elite. idiots love this kind of bicker and beef… it would be funny if it wasn’t so serious


I agree with steven friar. gods a maniac

good show… keep making them

From the entry 'Mass media disinformation and brainwashing dissected'.

Almost two months since the last broadcast! How the hell can you expect people to donate when you don’t broadcast? Looks like the ship of truth has sprung a leak. This broadcast has been part of my life almost since its inception…it is one of the few alternative news sources that hasn’t gone off the deep end, by dilution credible information with crap e.g. Fairdinkum Radio and Info Wars…Pittard started FR with some incredibly interesting material, but then he flipped…Today he sounds like a fundamentalist preacher, the Christian equivalent to a Fanatical Islamist. As an atheist, I think he’s really ###### up a potentially good show. As for Info Wars, all they would have to do to improve is dump Alex Jones, what a shit-for-brains. I reckon Jones and Pittard are allowed to proliferate, because they’re so stupid and harmless. I suppose they have some entertainment value, and along with David Icke are living examples of how low the alternative media has sunk. Truth News Radio is, or should I say was, way ahead of them all ahead of them all in terms of credibility How sad that its come to this.
