Every two years the Australian Youth Climate Coalition holds a national youth summit called Powershift. Thousands of young people from all over Australia converge to demand action on climate change. In 2011, 1500 young Australians gathered in Brisbane for the second Powershift conference. AYCC wanted a video that would capture the energy of the conference, as well as excite the next generation to get behind the climate campaign. Make Believe created a music video of epic proportions. Our fresh take on the popular “LipDub” genre starred over 1000 young volunteers dancing through the city of Brisbane. It has since become a much-loved AYCC video and acts as one of AYCC’s most powerful tools to engage Australian youth with their campaign.That’s just scratching the surface. The Make Believe team have left their grubby eco-fingerprints over dozens of greenie campaigns, including the election of Adam Bandt, the completely fanatical Oz MP who was crucial in persuading prime minister Julia Gillard to adopt the suicidal carbon tax.
Ms Osman moved on last autumnwhen she landed the plum role as communications director for Sony Europe. Others have noted brilliantly the extent to which large corporations – in order to extend their earnings potential – now vie with each other to flaunt their green credentials and jump into bed with the obscenely rich environment ‘charities’; Sony is exceptionally keen on this front. Their website boasts:
We have joined other organisations in the WWF Climate Savers Program to work towards climate change targets. We believe setting ambitious targets will demonstrate leadership and stimulate greater action and innovation in tackling environmental challenges.Chilling isn’t it? I thought Sony was a manufacturer of snazzy technical gizmos and entertainment products. In reality they are now working with unelected, unaccountable eco maniacs like the WWF to impose insane green targets on us all. You thought you were buying a piece of kit; but no, it’s actually a key token in the WWF battle to subvert and subvent democracy and dismantle capitalism.
For example, Sony Europe has signed a joint business declaration with The Climate Group, The Corporate Leaders Group on Climate Change and the WWF Climate Savers Program asserting that it makes economic sense for the EU to raise its targets beyond its current 20 per cent greenhouse gas emissions reduction target for 2020.
The declaration states that investment in tomorrow’s technology and infrastructure can help boost economic growth and create new jobs. Setting more ambitious targets now will help the EU to lead the low carbon economy of the future.
Ms Osman – just like Mr Sambrook at Edelman – seems to have taken to this environment like a duck to water. Is she too, another BBC econut? There’s no direct evidence of her personal views – she is far too discreet for that – but without doubt, she is quite happy to earn cartloads of money working for, and being associated with, campaigning, doctrinaire organisations that have the green creed stamped through them like a stick of rock.. The BBC tentacles of bias are seemingly everywhere.
