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
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.
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.
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.
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.
“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.”

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 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”.

Letter to the Editor
I am sending this out far and wide by email and Facebook (see 2 videos below)
I am 79 years old. I have lived through drought and I have lived through bush fires, but NEVER have I seen cars and metal melt and such devastation. Everybody with a brain knows that this is not normal.
You can choose to ignore this, or choose to pass it on, but ultimately the truth will be known.
This is an attack by the New World Order to reduce population and to bring us to our knees, to bring famine and to control every aspect of our lives, including the poisoning of humanity by vaccines.
They do not care who or what they kill.These “people” are either possessed by the devil, or from another planet. There is no way a normal human being would do this.
Choose to speak out, fight against this, or sit back and do nothing and become a slave.
Because of censorship, these videos will probably soon be removed, as being fake.

Super volcanoes Campi Flegrei (Italy 36,000 year ago, now active again) devastate much of Europe and Yellowstone (swelling up again) produced the two biggest eruptions equal to Krakatoa; Yellowstone 640,000 years ago ejected 8,000 times more ash and lava than Mount St. Helens.
Iceland volcano eruption (2012) caused havoc over Europe, Philippines Mnt Pinatubo (1991) blasted ash and gas for three days, Hawaii’s Kilauea continues erupting since 1983, and Alaskas Pavlof; Toba caldera in North Sumatra, Sakurajima Japan, Pacana Chile, Popocatepetl & Colima Mexico, New Zealand’s Taupo caldera, Indonesia Mnt Sinabung and many others under oceans are all still releasing CO2 in massive amounts the Earth’s natural capacities are able to cope with. Just one major volcano has produced more CO2 than man has ever produced—the current amount of CO2 (0.04%) is irrelevant compared to natural and volcanic emissions. An estimated 139,096 undersea volcanoes are active and 1,581 on land.
Will the Greens please protest where the real CO2 problem lies—inside the volcanoes.

Is the directed energy weapon used to make way for an infrastructure of “smart cities” in Australia?
More than 1000 homes destroyed by wildfire

“Our fiber lasers operate with an efficiency that generates less heat and exists in a smaller housing allowing easier integration into various defense platforms. Our ALADIN laser has been operating in the field for two years without the need for realignment, proving both the deadliness and the reliability of our solutions. ”
– Dr. Rob Afzal, Senior Researcher, Sensors and Laser Systems
A theoretical, and entirely legitimate, question arises when we seek to perceive the truth among the scraps of information that we receive every day from the traditional media: is the directed energy weapon secretly used to make room for “smart cities” infrastructure in Australia? A directed energy weapon emits energy in a desired direction without the need for a projectile. It transfers energy to a target for the desired effect. The desired effects on humans may or may not be lethal.
In addition to its use on people or as a potential missile defense, directed energy technology has also been shown to stop or disable moving cars, drones, jet skis and electronic devices such as cell phones. An electrolaser allows (thanks to the laser) that the blooming occurs (forming a channel / path of ionized air of conductor), then sends a powerful electric current through the channel / path of plasma formed in the direction of the target, much like lightning. It works like a giant version of the Taser or a high-energy electric pulse pistol over a long distance.
“Now is the time to send directed energy weapons to the battlefield. The Army recognizes the need for directed energy lasers as part of its modernization plan. It is no longer a research or demonstration effort. It is a strategic combat capability, and we are on track to get it into the hands of the soldiers. ”
– Lieutenant-General L. Neil Thurgood, Director of “Hypersonics, Directed Energy, Space and Rapid Acquisition”
On December 11, 2019, Julie Kern wrote on the Futura-Sciences site: “The fires in Australia do not seem to be ending. It has been almost five months since the beginning of August that the country of kangaroos burns everywhere. The regions of New South Wales and Queensland are the most affected. More than three million hectares have been devastated by the flames in these two regions. Currently, 87 homes are still active covering a perimeter of more than ten kilometers. They are essentially bush fires which progress quickly and produce a lot of smoke which suffocates cities like Sydney. The fires also damaged precious ecosystems that house endangered animals, and more than 684 homes were consumed by the flames. Despite the emergency, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has not declared a climate emergency in his country. ”
On December 22, 2019, the Sky News reported the Prime Minister’s words that there were “many other factors” than the climate change responsible for the fires that killed at least nine people.
“There is no argument, in my opinion, or from the point of view of the government, and any government in the country, about the links between the broader issues of global climate change and weather events around the world – but I I’m sure people would also recognize that direct connection to a single fire is not a credible suggestion. ”
The “official” news continues to say that the fires were caused by high heat and drought due to climate change and high winds. According to these sources, the earth has become so hot that the trees and grass have caught fire or is so dry that fires have spread over the grass and passed from one house to another even if the grass and brush between the burned houses was still green. For too hot soil, it should be at least 172 degrees C. (341.6 F.) as this is the temperature at which the hay burns (which is drier than the grass) and between 190 and 260 degrees Celsius (374 to 500 degrees F) for wood depending on the type and condition of it. In addition, warmer weather should bring more rain as more water is drawn from the ocean, creating clouds of rain. In the Contracts for Weather Control document, you can read at the bottom of page 13 how HAARP disperses storms and can create winds up to 70 mph.
The order of the day is to convince people that global warming is real in order to gain their acceptance to lose their rights and to shape their lifestyles into a single dictatorial world government.
Although the fire map is not evidence of the use of directed energy weapons, it is strange that almost the entire continent burns at the same time, around the same time that California burns. Australia has had bush fires before, but not nearly as much and at the same time. Mainstream media continues to blame climate change for the hot, dry conditions. As noted above, it must be at least 374 to 500 degrees F for the wood to start burning. (Chemtrail Planet)

Planning for 5G “smart cities” in Australia
High view to Hyde Park, Sydney at night Driven by cutting-edge technology and infrastructure, smart cities have progressed, embraced a future concept and are now becoming a reality, with the Australian government initiating a new plan to “transform cities and regional sites ”. The “smart city plan” will include new mechanisms to monitor and control society through technology, including intelligent management of infrastructure functions, ground and air sensors, surveillance with facial recognition, “Sustainable projects” and more.
Many systems are already there, and over the next decade, regions of the country are expected to interconnect to create a national 5G smart grid controlled by advanced biometric technologies. By 2021, the number of devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to double, and one major development that is already happening around the world to respond to this increase is the “smart city revolution”.
Using information and communication technologies, a “smart city” aims to provide personalized and intelligent services to residents, businesses and, most importantly, authorities. A smart city is officially defined by international standards as:
“Efficient integration of physical, digital and human systems into the built environment to provide a sustainable, prosperous and inclusive future for its citizens. “(ISO PAS 180, 2014).
A smart city uses data from IoT devices and sensors, widely used by artificial intelligence systems, to improve the city’s service experience, using “smart management” of resources to mitigate problems such as congestion, crime and pollution. Common themes found in smart city designs include: CCTV cameras with facial recognition capabilities, “smart lights” and LED sensors, pedestrian trackers, city movement monitoring systems and “ environmental analyzes ”to understand air quality such as dust, pollution and temperature.
The technology to create this type of smart city is already available and used around the world, including bins that compost, street lights that darken when not needed and light up when pedestrians pass, moment sensors and apps advising live data and much more.
Johnson CO2 Generator
Carbon dioxide is one of the essential ingredients in green plant growth, and is a primary environmental factor in greenhouses. CO2 enrichment at 2, 3 or 4 times natural concentration will cause plants to grow faster and improve plant quality and help save the planet.
Modern growers are becoming increasingly aware of the value of CO2. Particularly now that most greenhouses are purposely shutting out CO2 to conserve energy.
The Johnson CO2 Generator automatically provides the carbon dioxide to meet maximum growing potentials – and operates for only pennies a day. The Johnson Generator can easily be installed in any greenhouse. No expensive ductwork is necessary and CO2 is diffused evenly without supplemental fans.
Join with modern growers everywhere – use Johnson CO2 Generators – the low cost way to produce CO2 – the nutrient of the new millennium.
Why you get more rapid and efficient growth and better plant quality with Johnson CO2.
Plants must absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) in combination with water, soil nutrients and sunlight to produce the sugars vital for growth. A shortage of any of these requirements will retard the growing process. Normally there are approximately 300 parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere; when this level is increased to over 1 ,000 ppm, results are higher production and better plant quality. The Johnson Generator provides up to 1,500 ppm per unit in an average 24′ x 200′ greenhouse or an equivalent 50,000 cu. ft. volume based on one air change per hour.
Nighttime levels in a greenhouse range from 400 to 500 ppm due to plant respiration. Shortly after sunrise this level will drop to normal atmosphere (300 ppm) due to the plant using the early light to start photosynthesis. After 3 to 4 hours of early morning sunlight the CO2 level can drop to around l00 to 150 ppm, then growth is practically stopped. Supplemental CO2 added during this period can substantially increase your plant and flower production. By adding CO2, during winter months when greenhouse ventilators are closed and when low CO2 concentration becomes a limiting factor in growth, users are obtaining yield and bloom quality which is normally associated with spring and summer.
CO2 More Important Than Ever
The Johnson CO2 Generator is more important than ever because greenhouse growers, trying to conserve energy, are shutting out CO2. Rising fuel costs have forced many growers to use doubled-layered glass, etc., to conserve energy – as a result much less CO2 is entering the greenhouse.
How to use the Johnson CO2 Generator
When there is sunlight and the vents are closed, CO2 should be added continuously to your greenhouse. If the vents are opened because of heat build up the generator should continue to operate for about 2 hours and then be shut off. Approximately 1 Lb. of CO2 per hour per 1,000 sq. ft. yields 1,000 ppm’s of CO2. A 4,000 sq. ft. house requires at least 4 Lbs. of CO2 per hour. If CO21evel drops off from 1,000 ppm’s to 500 ppm’s on a clear sunny day, you can easily adjust to a higher burning rate to make up for the more rapid absorption of CO2 by plants. Most growers use their Johnson Generator daily in winter from approximately 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Thermometers bursting in 18th century
Adelaide historical records shatter climate cultists
The hottest day was not in 2019, but 1828 at a blistering 53.9 °C. Back before man-made climate change was frying Australia, when CO2 was around 300ppm, the continent savoured an ideal pre-industrial climate…. RIGHT? This is the kind of climate we are spending $10bn per annum to get back to … Right again? We are told today’s climate has more records and more extremes than times gone by, but the few records we have from the early 1800s are eye-popping.
Things were not just hotter, but so wildly hot it burst thermometers. The earliest temperature records we have show that Australia was a land of shocking heatwaves and droughts, except for when it was bitterly cold or raging in flood. In other words, nothing has changed, except possibly things might not be quite so hot now!
Silliggy (Lance Pidgeon) has been researching records from early explorers and from newspapers. What he’s uncovered is fascinating! It’s as if history is being erased! For all that we hear about recent record-breaking climate extremes, records that are equally extreme, and sometimes even more so, are ignored. 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.
Links to documentary evidence.
The maximum at or above 102 degrees F (38.9°C) for 24 days straight! Use the several links below to read the news reports at the time for yourself ..
- By Tuesday Jan 14, people were reported falling dead in the street.
- Unable to sleep, people in Brewarrina walked the streets at night for hours, thermometers recorded 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 hotel.)
- Panic stricken, Australians were fleeing to the hills.In climate refugee trains.
http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/79288908?zoomLevel=5>inAs 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. What I found most interesting about this was the skill, dedication and length of meteorological data taken in the 1800s. When our climate is “the most important moral challenge” why is it there is so little interest in our longest and oldest data?
Who knew that one of the most meticulous and detailed temperature records in the world from the 1800s comes from Adelaide, largely thanks to Sir Charles Todd.
The West Terrace site in Adelaide was one of the best in the world at the time, and provides accurate historic temperatures from “Australia’s first permanent weather bureau at Adelaide in 1856”
Rainfall records even appear to go as far back as 1839. Lance Pidgeon went delving into the National Archives and was surprised at what he found.
The media are in overdrive, making out that “the extreme heat is the new normal” in Australia. You can’t blame those high records on man-made global warming!
If you want to live among the trees then expect the worst
by Robert J Lee in Sydney
A succession of Green/ALP state governments in Queensland, NSW and Victoria has ensured the worst bush fires ever seen since the first settlement in 1788.
Blackfellas would not have allowed such high concentrations of forest detritus or would they have allowed open plains and sparsely timbered country to carry excess bodies of natural grasses.
Smart blackfellas burnt grasslands and forest whenever it would carry a fire.
If they didn’t they would have starved. Quite simple.
But the generational, socialist UN policies driving the major parties have allowed our once pristine rural land to become a tinder box due to lack of fuel reduction burning over decades.
In NSW more than 150 homes have been razed, nearly 900,000 hectares (2,250 million acres) have been devastated by wildfire and three people burnt to death because of Greens/ALP/LNP environmental nonsense.
Landowners under NSW and Queensland policies will end up in jail if they cut down a tree. There is no more problem with this stupidity now – there are no trees left.
NSW Liberal Premier Gladys Berejiklian has declared a state of emergency, describing the crisis as “some of the most devastating bushfires we have ever seen”.
The NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) confirmed the extent of the damage to date, ahead of a warning about “catastrophic” conditions facing Greater Sydney and the Greater Hunter areas on Tuesday.
And the nonsense still continues in the face of a declared fire emergency; no graders or bulldozers to build fire breaks can be seen at most of these fires. Queensland is no different.
Instead the urban methods of water-bombing with aircraft is next to useless, but puts a lot of money into a few hands.
The NSW fire bill is expected to exceed $1 billion. Insurance companies are hiding under rocks. Great management by state governments!
Then came the UN Agenda 21 (which has morphed into Agenda 30) in 1992 which then Queensland ALP Attorney General, Rod Welford, an avowed socialist among other things, couldn’t wait to sign. On whose authority did he sign such a terrible agreement?
The we have the outgoing Queensland ALP Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Deputy Premier Comrade Jackie Trad promising to sack 11,000 rural fire service volunteers if they don’t apply for a working with children blue card or telephone some ‘official’ from a raging fire ground for permission if they want to back burn.
Today Comrade Premier Palaszczuk issued a state of emergency forbidding any open fires, welding, grinding or acetylene cutting, warning landowners they will commandeer whatever equipment or water needed to fight a fire.
Maybe the desk-jockey morons of the ALP government have discovered they will need machinery to build fire breaks?
Far too little far too late. Get rid of these Trotskyites and replace them with One Nation, Katter and other independents at the next election.
Then form a new state of North Queensland and we can leave the Labor communists and their supporters to wallow in the denuded dustbowl of South East Queensland which no dams and no hazard reduction burning policies has created.

The new EU Agriculture Commissioner has publicly stated that Europe loses 1,000 farms per day. He acknowledged that the EU is losing 400,000 farms per year. However, crop and livestock production in Europe is projected to decline and maybe completely abandoned Europe’s southern and Mediterranean regions due to the increased negative impacts of climate change, according to a European Environment Agency study.
The study says that adapting to climate change must be made a top priority for the European Union’s agriculture sector if it is to improve resilience to extreme events like droughts, heatwaves, and floods. But the obsession with Climate Change in Europe which is destroying its economy and now its ability to even grow food many are concerned will lead to starvation once again as was the case in Ireland because of the British Corn Laws which prohibited the importation of grain from America.
The nonsense of Climate Change seems to be poised to accomplish what it is designed to do – reduce the population. The question that needs to be answered is: Whose grandchildren are we trying to prevent from being born? Those who do not believe in Climate Change created by Humans? Certainly not the promoters or politicians. So it must be the rest of us they want to starve.
It certainly appears that perhaps this is the backdrop as to why we may see a rise in agricultural prices into 2025 and our computer is showing this should be a cost-push inflationary wave.
from Viv Forbes
AS THE LATEST U.N. climate summit begins in New York, a new, high-level global network of 500 prominent climate scientists and professionals has submitted a declaration that there is no “climate emergency”.
The group has sent a European Climate Declaration with a registered letter to António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations.
Professor Guus Berkhout of The Netherlands, who organized the Declaration, said: “So popular is the Declaration with scientists and researchers worldwide that signatories are flooding in not only from within Europe but also from other countries such as the United States and Canada, Australia and New Zealand.”
The group’s letter warns the U.N. that “the general-circulation models of climate on which international policy is at present founded are unfit for their purpose”.
The Declaration adds that the models, which have predicted far more warming than they should (see diagram), “are not remotely plausible as policy tools”, in that “they … exaggerate the effect of greenhouse gases such as CO2” and “ignore the fact that enriching the atmosphere with CO2 is beneficial”.
The “climate emergency” that never was: Global warming predicted by climate models (purple and red cursors) is three times warming expected on the basis of officially-estimated manmade influences on climate (orange cursor) and four times observed warming (green cursor).
The letter invites the Secretary-General to work with the global network to organize a constructive, high-level meeting between world-class scientists on both sides of the climate debate in early 2020.
For further information, please contact Professor Guus Berkhout (firstname.lastname@example.org), +31 651 214 737,
or contact any of the National Ambassador listed in the Declaration
