Gina Rinehart warns the poor that they will have to choose between eating or heating due to high energy prices and Greens policies

Gina Rinehart claims high electricity costs are leaving poor Australians with bleak ‘heat or eat’ decisions due to ‘dumb green-led policies’.

Ms Rinehart, estimated to be Australia’s richest person with a mining-based fortune of $34bn, says the lives of retirees and low-income families will be put at risk by high prices of energy, as is happening in Europe during the winter.

He also promised to boost gas production in Queensland to try to offset rising domestic energy costs.

Speaking at the National Mining Day celebrations on Hayman Island, Ms Rinehart warned of the dangers of giving in to ‘green schemes’, saying they would have real effects on vulnerable people.

Labor pledged to cut electricity bills by $275 a year, but its October budget revealed energy costs are likely to soar 56 percent over the next two years.

At the same time, the Albanian government committed almost $25 billion for ‘clean energy spending’ in the budget.

Dressed in a pink hardhat as she spoke at National Mining Day celebrations on Hayman Island, Ms Rinehart warned of the dangers of giving in to ‘green schemes’, saying they would have real effects on vulnerable people.

“High-cost electricity means our retirees and other low-income people will be forced to choose between ‘heat or eat’, just as Europe heads into this northern winter with its silly green policies,” said Ms. rinehart.

He asked how people could ‘remain silent’ while taxpayers’ money goes to green schemes, the AFR informed.

He did not clarify which taxpayer-funded ‘green schemes’ he was referring to.

Labor’s budget announcement clarified that it would funnel $10 million to climate activist groups, the Office of Environmental Advocates and Environmental Justice Australia.

“The cheapest form of new energy in this country is renewables,” Anthony Albanese said when asked about the decisions.

Ms Rinehart also claimed that “even the poorest people” could have a better future if the “greens and fellow travelers” understood where their demands were leading.

Ms Rinehart told the mining audience that, in partnership with Korean steel company POSCO, it would boost gas production in Queensland.

He also took aim at discussed changes to industrial relations, including multi-employer bargaining agreements in Australia, saying they could harm the mining industry.

Increases in the price of energy have been widely linked to supply chain problems as a direct result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Donald Trump (pictured left) with his wife Melania prepare to announce that the former president is running again for the White House in 2024 and have a strong supporter in Ms. Rinehart, who has long spoken for of the extravagant property developer.

It was recently revealed that the mining magnate is among an inner circle of powerful Donald Trump supporters, as the former US president announced that he will run for the White House again in 2023.

Australia’s richest woman can be seen in the background of a photo taken of Trump’s son Eric posing with his wife Lara at the family’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

The photo was posted on Instagram with Ms Rinehart peeking into the space between the posing couple watching the proceedings with interest.

She has been an outspoken Trump admirer and urged the Australian government to adopt the same economic policies that saw him win the 2016 presidential election against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The Netball Fight Broke Out After Comments By Ms Rinehart'S Father, Lang Hancock (Pictured With Daughter Gina Rinehart In 1982), Resurfaced When He Said Authorities Should Contaminate Water Supplies To Sterilize Indigenous People Australians.

The netball fight broke out after comments by Ms Rinehart’s father, Lang Hancock (pictured with daughter Gina Rinehart in 1982), resurfaced when he said authorities should contaminate water supplies to sterilize indigenous people Australians.

Before that election, Rinehart also met with Trump allies Rudy Giuliani and Kellyanne Conway in Washington.

Ms Rinehart has criticized US media coverage of Trump, calling it relentless “negative coverage” and accusing the media of unfairly targeting her family, such as his wife Melania.

Ms Rinehart recently grabbed headlines for breaking a $15 million deal to sponsor Australia’s national netball team, the Diamonds, after a dispute erupted over comments made by her father Lang Hancock, who founded Hancock Prospecting.

Indigenous player Donnell Wallam wanted an exemption from wearing the team’s jersey sponsored by Mr Hancock’s racist comments 40 years ago, with teammates backing his decision.

“The ones who aren’t good for themselves and can’t accept things, the mestizos, and this is where most of the trouble comes in,” he said in a television documentary.

“I would dope the water so they would be sterile and reproduce in the future and that would solve the problem.”

The move sparked a furious response from Ms Rinehart, who slammed Netball Australia for “virtue signaling” over its desperately needed cash injection.

The $15m contract was meant to be a lifeline for the organisation, which has lost $7m in the past two years as Super Netball costs have skyrocketed.

Victorian Premier Dan Andrews later stepped in with a new $15 million sponsorship using taxpayers’ money under the Visit Victoria tourism campaign.
