The ACTU will fade into insignificance like climate change by the time Covid vaxx ravages its dwindling membership

This unintelligent woman, Michelle O’Neil, is just one of a long line of socialist Labor stooges put in charge of the Australian Council of Trade Unions to ensure the Labor Party gets into government.

ACTU President Michele O’Neil is flogging the dead horse of climate change while the Covid vaxx decimates her dwindling membership

The ACTU and unions generally are finished as far as being the worker’s representative in the Australian labour market.

Tens of thousands of blue collar workers have lost their jobs as a result of the Deep State’s Covid scam but not a word from compromised union leaders, most of whom are known crooks and communist sympathisers.

One has to only look at the disgraced CFMEU leader in Victoria John Setka, who is in the pocket and pay of the corrupt communist dictator Dan Andrews.

O’Neil, the intellectual pygmy and President of the ACTU is pushing climate policy as being the coming cataclysm for Australia and is terrorising Prime Minister Scott Morrison about ignoring it.

One can thank God the PM is relegating it to the bottom of the policy pile, in reality, while giving it some scant relevance to keep the Greens and Labor at bay.

Most people living in regional Australia have largely disregarded Al Gore’s thoroughly discredited climate change theory while sea levels around Australia have not increased one millimetre is one hundred years and the temperature has not yet, if it ever does, reach the higher levels of the 18th century.

The conversion of Australia’s reliable, clean, cheap, coal-power to renewables will relegate our almost non-existent manufacturing industry to the whims of the wind and sunlight

This irrelevant union boss is flogging a dead horse and her media release below reveals she is simply recanting the rubbish from the recent climate talkfest held in Glasgow:

The annual rankings from the Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) rank the performance of nations on greenhouse gas emissions, renewable energy, energy use and climate policy. 
Overall, taking in all the categories, we’re ranked 55th. 
But it’s not just climate policy we’re failing. 
Fourteen Governments from around the world have declared their support for a Just Transition through green growth, decent work and economic prosperity as economies move towards net-zero emissions. 

Australia is not one of them. 

The COP26 in Glasgow was a chance for our Prime Minister to show the world that Australia is stepping up and improving our efforts to fight climate change. 
Instead, Scott Morrison delivered what he does best: empty words, with a side of disappointment and embarrassment. 
As unionists, we know that the world is facing an urgent climate crisis
We cannot let our future be left to leaders who refuse to acknowledge the severity of this issue, nor take action to preserve our jobs, lives and planet for future generations. 

Can you email your MP now and demand stronger, better and fairer action?

The only embarrassment is this silly woman. If there is anything left after the vaccine ravages unionists and their families over the next three years, by then the climate change misnomer will have faded into total national and international insignificance.

Climate change is covert weather modification

by Alexandra Bruce, US correspondent

Dane Wigington joins Greg Hunter at USAWatchdog.com to say that the Western US is under siege by covert weather warfare that is causing crop failures, food shortages, farmer bankruptcies and that Bill Gates is ready and waiting to buy their land for pennies on the dollar, as the largest buyer and owner of farmland in the US.

Many of us already know the story told by former NATO Supreme Commander Wesley Clark to Amy Goodman at Democracy Now!, about how he was shown a list of target countries in the Middle East; countries that had been marked for invasion by the US military-industrial complex, long before 9/11 had occurred. This, by itself gave us pause. What if it were just as widely known that every one of these Middle Eastern target countries subsequently underwent a once-in-one-thousand-year drought?

“That’s not nature, that’s climate engineering,” Wigington says. “In fact, the leaders of some of these countries stated so on the floor of the UN, like the leader of Iran. They have sophisticated atmospheric monitoring equipment and they stated, with no ambiguous terms that NATO was cutting off their precipitation, which destabilizes food productions and thus populations.”

The obvious next question is, “How many other global populations are being covertly targeted by the climate engineering operations? Let’s start here: ‘Engineered Drought Catastrophe: Target California’. That’s the title of a presentation given by myself on behalf of geoengineeringwatch.org many years ago. The data presented in that presentation is more relevant now than ever before.

“Climate engineering operations are the crown jewel of the military-industrial complex. Remember that it’s a weapon by which they can bring populations to their knees without those populations ever even knowing or understanding that they are under assault. Crush crop production and blame it on nature. That is the MO…

“The global science community is telling us that ‘we need to geo-engineer immediately’, as if it hasn’t been going on for 70 years, already…They describe the need to fill the atmosphere with light-scattering particles to reflect some of the Sun’s incoming thermal radiation, i.e. thermal energy…And the elements named in climate engineering patents: aluminum, barium, strontium, polymer fibers, all of that showing up in every lab test that we take from around the globe. It’s happening and the climate science denial is beyond criminal, at this point.”

The The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicted that, based on a warming planet, the Pacific Northwest would receive a huge increase in precipitation in the Lower 48 but that’s not what’s happening. Dane Wigington explains, “That hasn’t happened because they are aerosolizing the moisture that enters from the west and they’re establishing pressure zones, like the high pressure dome [created by a HAARP-like ionospheric heating devices] that’s parked over the Northern California-Southern Oregon region, which deflects all the incoming pacific moisture, over and around us and then, down into the eastern half of the Lower 48, Greg, which is statistically, since 2012, the last 9 years, the most anomalously less-warm region in the entire world.

“This is not nature, this is climate engineering, period…We can speculate into…the agenda behind the drought-creation, we can speculate as to the motives but the fact of the case of the drought in the Western US, and what the rest of the world have gone through, like Australia, Spain, Portugal – this is a direct result of climate engineering operations, period…That they are completely derailing the hydrological cycle and drying out the US West is beyond dispute.”

And it is already leading to food shortages.

Moreover, he says, “Why wouldn’t we think this is a platform to disperse biologicals? We know, in the case of CV-19…we have a peer-reviewed study from Italy to prove CV-19 was attached to airborne particulates. How does that happen?

“We have the world’s second most-recognized geo-engineer, Ken Caldeira, now working directly for who? Bill Gates. We have Bill Gates, buying up more farmland in the US than anyone else. He’s the largest owner of farmland in the US of all and we have Gates involved with the seed bank, the doomsday seed bank in the Arctic. We have so many pieces to this puzzle that paint a very, very dark, nefarious picture, Greg…

“The cutting off of the precipitation in the US West, breaking farmers, causing, in many cases for them to have to sell their land for pennies on the dollar – and who’s there to buy it up? It appears Bill Gates! The fox is running the henhouse and if we don’t deal with this soon, we won’t have much to care about.”

Climate change judgement in Federal Court says Minister must protect young people

By HARRY PALMER

Federal Court judge Mordecai Bromberg delivered a landmark judgement 27 May 2021 that federal Environment Minister Sussan Ley has a duty of care to avoid harm to young people as a result of climate change.

The litigants, eight Australian high school students Anjali Sharma, Isolde Shanti Raj-Seppings, Ambrose Malachy Hayes, Tomas Webster Arbizu, Bella Paige Burgemeister, Laura Fleck Kirwan, Ava Princi and Luca Gwyther Saunders and a catholic nun, Sister Marie Brigid Arthur acted as their representative.

Respondents were federal Minister for the Environment and Vickery Coal Pty Ltd.

After reading the judgement I query who paid the students’ surmountable legal costs. A three day hearing represented by senior counsel, Mr Noel Hutley, junior counsel Mr E Nekvapil, Ms K Brazenor, Ms S Brenker and solicitor David Barnden of Equity Generation Lawyers. Unless this legal team appeared pro bono their fee would keep the North Shore for a year.

Spokeswoman for the high school students, Ava Princi, (pictured) a pivotal member of ‘School Strike 4 Climate’, a high school group of mislead environmentalists and climate change activists said “I’m thrilled because this is a global first,”

“We understand it is the first time a Court anywhere in the world has ordered a government to specifically protect young people from the catastrophic harms of climate change.”

This judgement could have flow-on consequences for projects seeking to increase Australia’s production of coal.

Fortunately most serious scientists across the world say climate change or global warming is nonsense.

Labor politicians will seize on this dodgy judgement and it could affect the neglected majority which is often denied constitutional protection. However governments could challenge the Federal Court finding in the High Court.

One example of failed constitutional duty of care by government is out-of-control young Aboriginal thugs and ethnic youth gangs which rampage with immunity around the nation when non-Aboriginal Australians are subject to the full weight of law.

Creepy Joe’s Climate Summit exposed the US loopy left pandering to the green left media zeitgeist

Biden held his big climate summit on Thursday and Friday where he embarrassed the United States. He was the only one of the world leaders who participated remotely to wear a face-mask, the new symbol of his radically authoritarian party.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison took part in the gabfest.

During the event the nation’s 46th president laid out his extreme agenda, vowing to reduce 52% of “greenhouse gas” emissions in less than a decade.

Although Biden was vague on the details, experts quoted by the Daily Mail warned that such a plan would brutalize taxpayers, force a move to electric cars (despite their questionable feasibility), and demand that Americans comply with dietary restrictions. The plan would prohibit the consumption of red meat in excess of a minuscule amount mandated by the one-party government and their globalist allies.

Hence the big buy-up of American farmland by Bill Gates who is trying to stop beef production to replace it with his patented synthetic soy beef produced by soybeans grown on his farms.

It is a sad example of how far that the media has fallen when it takes an Australian journalist to call such ideas out as lunacy. Chris Kenny of Sky News showed that the emperor has no clothes with an epic scourging of the pathetic US leadership.

“Welcome to the loopy-left era of Joe Biden. Where climate policies are apparently about existential alarmism.”

According to Kenny, “Last night we saw yet another climate summit. Another global gathering of world leaders parading their virtue, making grand promises, playing to the green left media zeitgeist, and never being accountable for any of their promises or actions,” he said. “The only difference this time is that they didn’t jump on their private jets and fly thousands of people at great expense producing hundreds of tons of greenhouse gas emissions to have their talk fast. No, this time they did it by Zoom and yes, there were glitches.”

He continued, “And yet while the weather bureau can’t forecast 24 hours ahead, and bureaucrats can’t run a Zoom chat, these world leaders and the climate activists they pander to, tell us they do know what will happen to the climate decades from now, and even better, they know how to control it.”

He correctly pointed out that little is done to reign in the planet’s biggest polluter: “Even while they agree that the country that has by far the largest carbon footprint, China, can be allowed to continue to dramatically increase its emissions.” And don’t expect any pressure on a country that has it’s own footprint in the White House and virtually owns all of Corporate America.

Kenny added, “Now many of you will agree with me that in large part this alarmist and self-delusional attitude is nutty and deserves to be called out. But some of you will believe the spin that this is a rational response to the light of scienceWell let me disavow you of this because you are about to hear from a person the U.S. put on this summit panel. Forty world leaders supposedly addressing serious scientific, economic, and policy issues and we got this: a New York-based Mexican teenager talking about mother Earth no less.”

He was referring to 19-year-old Xiye Bastida who was introduced by the feckless Secretary Of State Antony Blinken. Blinken’s credibility vanished the minute that he had his ass handed to him by the Chinese at the ballyhooed Anchorage talks earlier this month. It is simply astounding that Biden would sign off on a travesty like this.

US and southern Australia buckle under record freezes in readiness for a mini ice age

So much for global warming or climate change or whatever Australian Broadcasting Corporation myths are broadcast this week

Double world CO2 emissions and warming increases by just 1 degree

Consider this admission on 12 May 2012 by the prominent German meteorologist Klaus Eckart Puls in an interview by Bettina Hahne-Waldscheck of the Swiss magazine “Factum”, translated, summarized and paraphrased for brevity by P. Gosselin in a journal article titled “The Belief That CO2 Can Regulate Climate Is Sheer Absurdity”:

Bettina:  You’ve been criticizing the theory of man-made global warming for years.  How did you become skeptical?

Puls:  Ten years ago I simply parroted what the IPCC told us.  One day I started checking the facts and data — first I started with a sense of doubt but then I became outraged when I discovered that much of what the IPCC and the media were telling us was sheer nonsense and was not even supported by any scientific facts and measurements.  To this day I feel shame that as a scientist I made presentations of their science without first checking it . . . Scientifically it is sheer absurdity to think we can get a nice climate by turning a CO2 adjustment knob.

Bettina:  Is there really climate change?

Puls:  Climate change is normal.  There have always been phases of global warming, many that far exceeded the extent we see today.  But there hasn’t been any warming since 1998.  In fact the IPCC suppliers of data even show a slight cooling.

Bettina:  The IPCC is projecting 0.2 degrees Celsius warming per decade, i.e., 2 to 4 degrees Celsius by the year 2100.  What’s your view?

Puls:  These are speculative model projections, so-called scenarios — and no

Polar bear population has increased with moderately rising temperatures, from 5,000 50 years ago to 25,000 today and disappearing ice is a myth used for generating climate hysteria

prognoses.  Because of climate’s high complexity, reliable prognoses just aren’t possible.  Nature does what it wants, and not what the models present as prophecy.

The entire CO2 debate is nonsense.  Even if CO2 were doubled, the temperature would rise only 1 degree Celsius.  The remainder of the IPCC’s assumed warming is based purely on speculative amplification mechanisms.  Even though CO2 has risen, there has been no warming in 13 years.

Bettina:  How does sea level look?

Puls:  Sea level rise has slowed down.  Moreover, it has dropped a half centimeter over the last 2 years.  It’s important to remember that mean sea level is a calculated magnitude, and not a measured one.  There are a great number of factors that influence sea level, e.g., tectonic processes, continental shifting, wind currents, passats, volcanoes.  Climate change is only one of ten factors.

Bettina:  What Have we measured at the North Sea?

Puls:  In the last 400 years, sea level at the North Sea coast has risen about 1.40 meters.  That’s about 35 centimeters per century.  In the last 100 years, the North Sea has risen only 25 centimeters.

Bettina:  Does the sea level rise have anything to do with the melting North Pole?

Puls:  That’s a misleading conclusion.  Even if the entire North Pole melted, there would be no sea level rise because of the principles of buoyancy.

Bettina:  Is the melting of the glaciers in the Alps caused by global warming?

Puls:  There are many factors at play.  As one climbs a mountain, the temperature drops about 0.65 degrees Celsius per 100 meters.  Over the last 100 years it has gotten about 0.75 degrees Celsius warmer and so the temperature boundary has shifted up about 100 meters.  But observations tell us that ice also 1,000 meters up and higher has melted.  Clearly there are other reasons for this, namely soot and dust.  But soot and dust do not have only anthropogenic origins; they are also caused by nature via volcanoes, dust storms, and wildfires.  Advances and retreats of glaciers have always taken place throughout the Earth’s history.  Glaciology studies clearly show that glaciers over the last 10,000 years were smaller on average than today.

Bettina:  In your view, melting Antarctic sea ice and the fracture of a huge iceberg 3 years ago are nothing to worry about?

Puls:  To the contrary, the Antarctic ice cap has grown both in area and volume over the last 30 years, and temperature has declined.  This 30-year trend is clear to see.  The Amundsen Scott Station of the USA shows that temperature has been declining there since 1957.  90 percent of the Earth’s ice is stored in Antarctica, which is one and a half times larger than Europe.

Bettina:  Then why do we always read it is getting warmer down there?

Puls:  Here they are only talking about the West Antarctic peninsula, which is where the big chunk of ice broke off in 2008 — from the Wilkins-Shelf.  This area is hardly 1 percent of the entire area of Antarctica, but it is exposed to Southern Hemisphere west wind drift and some of the strongest storms of the planet.

Bettina:  What causes such massive chunks of ice to break off?

Puls:  There are lots of factors, among them the intensity of the west wind fluctuations.  These west winds have intensified over the last 20 years as part of natural ocean and atmospheric cycles, and so it has gotten warmer on the west coast of the Antarctic peninsula.  A second factor is the larger waves associated with the stronger storms.  The waves are more powerful and so they break off more ice.  All these causes are meteorological and physical, and have nothing to do with a climate catastrophe.

Bettina:  Then such ice breaks had to have occurred in the past too?

Puls:  This has been going on for thousands of years, also in the 1970’s back when all the talk was about “global cooling”.  Back then there were breaks with ice chunks hundreds of square kilometers in area.  People were even discussing the possibilities of towing these huge ice chunks to dry countries like South Africa or Namibia in order to use them as a drinking water supply.

Bettina:  What about all the media photos of polar bears losing their ice?

Puls:  That is one of the worst myths used for generating climate hysteria.  Polar bears  don’t eat ice, they eat seals.  Polar bears go hungry if we shoot their food supply of seals.  The polar bear population has increased with moderately rising temperatures, from 5,000 50 years ago to 25,000 today.

Bettina:  But is it true that unlike Antarctica, the Arctic is melting?

Puls:  It has been melting for 30 years.  That also happened twice already in the last 150 years.   The low point was reached in 2007 and the ice has since begun to recover.  There have always been phases of Arctic melting.  Between 900 AD and 1300 AD Greenland was green on the edges and the Vikings settled there.

Bettina:  And what do you say about the alleged expanding deserts?

Puls:  That doesn’t exist.  For example, the Sahara is shrinking and has lost in the north an area as large as Germany over the last 20 years.  The same is true in the South Sahara.  The famine that struck Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia was mainly caused by the leasing of large swathes of land to large international corporations so that they could grow crops for biofuels for Europe, and by war.  But it is much easier for prosperous Europe to blame the world’s political failures on a fictional climate catastrophe instead.

Bettina:  So we don’t need to do anything against climate change?

Puls:  There’s nothing we can do to stop it.  Scientifically, it is sheer absurdity to think we can get a nice climate by turning a CO2 adjustment knob.  Many confuse environmental protection with climate protection.  It’s impossible to protect the climate but we can protect the environment and our drinking water.  On the debate concerning alternative energies, which is sensible, it is often driven by the irrational climate debate.  One has nothing to do with the other.

Agforce rolls over supporting zero emissions to wipe out its farmer members

by R J Lee

It’s now official. Agforce once Queensland’s agricultural and pastoral representative body supposedly created to protect farming from megalomaniacal governments has again rolled over this time supporting the totally discredited theory of Al Gore’s climate change.

Ever since Agforce accepted government funding about 15 years ago the once representative farmer’s lobby group has become a puppet of the socialist Queensland Labor Party.

The climate cultists and the UN wan to wipe out farming as a part of their depopulation strategy

Agforce’s membership has dwindled to just over 5000 over the past decade largely because of its dalliance with the socialist policies of the Labor Party and ineffectiveness in negotiations to keep the Marxists out of food production.

Agforce simply toes the National Farmers Federation/Liberal Party nexus line with major issues such as so-called climate change, a part of the UN sponsored attack on farming world-wide based on the Agenda 21 now 30 environmental depopulation agreement signed in Rio by all governments in 1992.

Now Agforce CEO Michael Guerin says agriculture doesn’t want a free pass from its responsibility to the planet.

Mr Guerin is not intelligent enough to understand that agriculture’s primary responsibility to the planet is to feed it without the Albatross of United Nations depopulation plots aided and abetted by ‘governments’ such as the LNP and the ALP.

By 2050 if the zero emission target is met, plant life will cease to exist because it needs carbon dioxide and lots of it. A farmer would have to be delirious to aim for any reduction of CO2 at today’s levels let alone in 30 years time. Smart farmers should be making CO2 generators so they and their crops can survive, especially in a place like Australia with almost zero emissions now.

He says AgForce wants agriculture to lead Australia’s charge towards net zero emissions by 2050, not be exempt from it, and be recognised for the positive contribution it makes.

“Agriculture is a strong part of the climate change solution and is ready to take part in the conversation with Australia’s science community and political leaders to ensure an evidence-based approach was implemented to achieving our targets,” Mr Guerin said.

“It will be incredibly difficult for Australia to achieve its climate change targets if agriculture is excluded from our nation’s goal to reach zero emissions.”

Agriculture is doomed under the LNP/ALP/UN triumvirate using zero emissions as an ideological weapon

There it is Agforce members and to the remaining majority of the farming network. If you believe this hocus pocus you should not be involved in farming.

The only climate change the world is suffering is a deliberate man-made one that is being used as a weapon of war by Russia and China with the yanks coming a poor third.

We have been in an unofficial war with parts of the world for years and since at least Biden, using massive, proven beyond any doubt voter fraud, stole the US election in November.

The first rule of war is to know that you’re in one. The second rule of war is to delineate who is a friend and who is a foe and that, of course, in a covert area is very difficult to do.

It’s not just information warfare, it’s really 5th Generation Unrestricted Warfare.

We have lived the past several years being unrelentingly strafed by Unrestricted Warfare. The most challenging part of this is getting your head around it and achieving situational awareness, especially because very often, the enemy is not only domestic but it has also parked itself inside your head or inside the heads of your loved ones via unceasing propaganda (ABC), such that perhaps your friends and family have been conquered by the enemy and they are acting on behalf of the enemy and they don’t even know it.

This is a global, covert World War IV in 5th Generational Warfare. The primary means of it are informational, cyber and psychological, which means that most of the terrain is human, not physical…There is some physicality but most of it is human terrain.

Under the Agforce strategy and a dubious LNP federal government, farmers are facing a bleak future and woe betide the population should they be stupid enough to support the NWO Labor Party.

Zero emission nonsense will plough farmers and pastoralists six inches under. Until the agricultural sector wakes up that the UN is driving these depopulation policies under the guise of the Agenda 21/30 Treaty then they should pack up and live on a beach.

War is when your government tells you who the enemy is. Revolution is when you figure it out.”

Greta does not like raw eggs

One crisp winter morning in Sweden, a cute little girl named Greta woke up to a perfect world, one where there were no petroleum products ruining the earth She tossed aside her cotton sheet and wool blanket and stepped out onto a dirt floor covered with willow bark that had been pulverized with rocks.

What’s this?” she asked.

Pulverized willow bark,” replied her fairy godmother.

What happened to the carpet?” she asked.

Greta exclaims,” Saving the planet is hard work. Do I have to pull up the last of the fence palings to heat the eggs?”

The carpet was nylon, which is made from butadiene and hydrogen cyanide, both made from petroleum,” came the response.

Greta smiled, acknowledging that adjustments are necessary to save the planet, and moved to the sink to brush her teeth where instead of a toothbrush, she found a willow, mangled on one end to expose wood fibre bristles.

Your old toothbrush?” noted her godmother, “Also nylon.”

Where’s the water? asked Greta.

Down the road in the canal,” replied her godmother, ‘Just make sure you avoid water with cholera in it

Why’s there no running water? ”Greta asked, becoming a little peevish.

Well,” said her godmother, who happened to teach engineering at university, “Where do we begin?

There followed a long monologue about how sink valves need elastomer seats and how copper pipes contain copper, which has to be mined and how it’s impossible to make all-electric earth-moving equipment with no gear lubrication or tires and how ore has to be smelted to a make metal, and that’s tough to do with only electricity as a source of heat, and even if you use only electricity, the wires need insulation, which is petroleum-based, and though most of Sweden’s energy is produced in an environmentally friendly way because of hydro and nuclear, if you do a mass and energy balance around the whole system, you still need lots of petroleum products like lubricants and nylon and rubber for tires and asphalt for filling potholes and wax and iPhone plastic and elastic to hold your underwear up while operating a copper smelting furnace and . . .

What’s for breakfast?” interjected Greta, whose head was hurting.

Fresh, range-fed chicken eggs,” replied her godmother. “Raw.”

How so, raw?” inquired Greta.

Well, . . .” And once again, Greta was told about the need for petroleum products like transformer oil and scores of petroleum products essential for producing metals for frying pans and in the end was educated about how you can’t have a petroleum-free world and then cook eggs.

Unless you rip your front fence up and start a fire and carefully cook your egg in an orange peel like you do in Boy Scouts.   Not that you can find oranges in Sweden anymore.

But I want poached eggs like my Aunt Tilda makes,” lamented Greta.

Tilda died this morning,” the godmother explained. “Bacterial pneumonia.

What?!” interjected Greta. “No one dies of bacterial pneumonia! We have penicillin.” 

“Not anymore,” explained godmother:

The production of penicillin requires chemical extraction using isobutyl acetate, which, if you know your organic chemistry, is petroleum-based.

Lots of people are dying, which is problematic because there’s not any easy way of disposing of the bodies since backhoes need hydraulic oil and crematoriums can’t really burn many bodies using as fuel Swedish fences and furniture, which are rapidly disappearing – being used on the black market for roasting eggs and staying warm.

This represents only a fraction of Greta’s day, a day without microphones to exclaim into and a day without much food, and a day without carbon-fibre boats to sail in, but a day that will save the planet. – contributed

Polar ice is growing in size – thank God for global warming

NSIDC: 2020 Polar Ice doing just fine

According to the latest October report from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), the ice locked at Earth’s poles is, overall, GROWING.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow.

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.

Up to 97 per cent of the Great Barrier Reef is in pristine condition – Independent Peter Campion

An independent candidate for the rural seat of Hill (SW Cairns) in October’s state election has harshly criticised a 2008 amendment to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Act of 1975 that gives “wrongologists an escape clause for damage done to farmers by their questionable expertise and advice to government”.

Peter Campion of Tolga, a retired fireman, is a long-term climate change sceptic and energy realist who has been a regular contributor to the Cairns Post’s ‘Letters to the Editor’ column. Mr Campion is standing for Hill against the Katter Party’s Shane Knuth.

Peter Campion, is a repetitive letter writer published in North Queensland newspapers campaigning about the scientific foibles of climate change but is better known as Barnaby Joyce’s new father-in-law.

“The GPRMPA Act came about due to concerns for the Great Barrier Reef, which initially stemmed from early Reef tourism operators’ misunderstandings of natural reef systems and cycles – especially relating to the ‘gardeners of the Reef’, the Crown of Thorns starfish,” he said.

“The GBRMPA Act had been in operation for 33 years before Reef researchers felt the need to have an escape clause inserted.

“To me, that suggests that by 2008 they had realised there was a fair chance they were wrong.”

The amendment that has drawn Mr Campion’s scorn is in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2008, which inserts a “precautionary principle” clause.

“The amendment describes the precautionary principle as ‘… the principle that lack of full scientific certainty should not be used as a reason for postponing a measure to prevent degradation of the environment where there are threats of serious or irreversible environmental damage.’”, Mr Campion said.

“On the basis of this blatantly ridiculous ‘precautionary principle’ all farms , industries, towns, sewage systems, and roads should be closed as they all represent a threat to the environment.

“A better precautionary principle would be the proper Popperian scientific method that automatically assumes all science is only correct until such time as it is proved that it is not – which happens far more often than you’d think.

“It is just horrific to think that these scientists, who completely failed to produce their proof to the recent federal Senate inquiry into the Palaszczuk government’s anti-farmer reef regulations, suspected 12 years ago that their work might not be reliable. Why else would they lobby for an escape clause to give cover for their own malfeasance?” he said.

The scientists at the focus of Mr Campion’s anger, Ian Chubb, Geoff Garrett, and Ove Hoegh-Gulberg, took to the far-left website The Guardian to attack the Senate inquiry as a form of defence of their research. Notably this is the research that Professor Peter Ridd was sacked from JCU for suggesting might be unreliable.

Mr Campion noted, “In their own article they still had to admit that ‘little more than 3% of the coral’ may be negatively affected by water quality issues. That means 97 per cent of the Reef is unaffected, but they still want to impose draconian controls on our food producers.

“This is an outrage. These individuals, and their institutions, are unworthy of any further support from taxpayers and the Palaszczuk government’s anti-farmer Reef regulations must be repealed immediately.”

Nothing new with warming oceans and heatwaves

The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from the Consulate at Bergen, Norway.

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard of temperatures in the Arctic zone.

Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.

Soundings to a depth of 3,100 metres showed the gulf stream still very warm.

Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.

SORRY I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 98 years ago.

Today climate change scientist seem to think it was caused by the Model T Ford emissions or possibly horse and cattle carbon farts.

Heat waves in Australia are nothing new and official records show it was hotter in 1896

What we today call official records started in 1910. If we think this summer has been hot how about a 24-DAY heatwave on Australia’s east coast in January 1896 that saw temperatures climb to 49 degrees and killed 437 people.

The maximum temperature was above 38.9C for over three weeks!

In January 1896 a savage blast “like a furnace” stretched across Australia from east to west and lasted for weeks. The death toll reached 437 people in the eastern states. Newspaper reports showed that in Bourke the heat approached 120°F (48.9°C) on three days. The maximum at or above 102 degrees F (38.9°C) for 24 days straight. By Tuesday Jan 14, people were reported falling dead in the streets.

Unable to sleep, people in Brewarrina walked the streets at night for hours, the thermometer recording 109F at midnight. Overnight, the temperature did not fall below 103°F.

On Jan 18 in Wilcannia, five deaths were recorded in one day, the hospitals were overcrowded and reports said that “more deaths are hourly expected”.

By January 24, in Bourke, many businesses had shut down (almost everything bar the hotels). Panic stricken Australians were fleeing to the hills in climate refugee trains.

As reported at the time, the government felt the situation was so serious that to save lives and ease the suffering of its citizens they added cheaper train services.

Extinction Rebellion should sit down and take a Bex

Letter to the Editor

The cauldron of discontent that is the climate change debate alternates between simmer and boil over, depending on what new ingredients are tossed in. The combination of drought, water shortages and bushfires all meant that the cauldron was boiling most of the time and the media was starting to run out of superlatives to describe the situation.

“Crisis” and “catastrophic” have been used to the point that they have almost become meaningless and occasionally apocalyptical.

“Outrage”has also become popular. How dare the Prime Minister allow this to happen?

Around the country groups are calling for “immediate” or “instant” action. Doing his bit to stir the pot is the smug figure of Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese.

So I think the time is right to introduce a new adjective, “hysteria”.

Greta Thumberg has her own version of hysteria

Greta Thumberg gave a master class in theatrically contrived hysteria at the UN.

Some of the people in the latest hysterical outburst are not in the mould of regular rent-a-crowd uni students. Among the Extinction Rebellion activists were middle aged and senior citizens.

As a senior citizen myself, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at their antics.

Hysteria means “emotional excess” or frenzy, irrationality, panic and loss of control, and that really concerns me.

Normally steady sane people are being swept along by the tide of professional activists whose only interest is destabilisation for their own aims under the smokescreen of climate change.

I think it’s time to sit down and take a “Bex”.
