Congratulations to Graham Lloyd (Aus 12 Nov) for pointing out that Greens are responsible for the incendiary state of the Australian countryside.
And shame on those same Greens for continually riding their climate alarm hobby-horse.
There is nothing new about droughts, heatwaves or fires in Australia. What is unusual is the scale and ferocity of recent bushfires caused by Green worship of trees and locked up land, and their opposition to hazard reduction burn-offs. Continue reading “Greens to Blame”
From time to time, physics with a burst of discovery has enjoyed a renaissance. Regrettably, there have been times when it has been repressed by control freaks. One of the most daunting was the Church-mandated doctrine that the Solar System revolved around the Vatican. In the early 1600s, it was risky to your freedom and life to doubt the official word. Which consensus was based upon the authority of scripture–the most convincing peer review of the day.
Probably if you are from Melbourne you will know this history…..
Black Thursday Bushfires – 6th Feb 1851
Australia’s most extensive Bushfires were known as the ‘Black Thursday’ Bushfires, where on the 6th Feb 1851 (CO2 levels 285ppm) when the temperature hit an incredible 117°F (47.2°C) at 11am in Melbourne. A quarter of Victoria, 5 million hectares in total were burnt out (10 times more than from the current Bushfires in NSW). 12 lives were lost and one million sheep and thousands of cattle where lost.

The public has every right to expect that scientific medical journals should impartially quest after truth. However, even the respected journal, The Lancet, has difficulty with maintaining impartiality when it comes to the subject of climate change. Who would have expected this?
Climate alarmists often make the claim that (imaginary) global warming is already resulting in more extreme weather events. They cite escalating insurance claims following fire or flood as evidence. The link between extreme weather and an increasing number of insurance claims can easily be examined to determine if, in this particular case, correlation actually does mean causation.
From England, Nick Oldridge writes in his article “Insurance and Climate Change”
“With climate change set to be one of the greatest risks of them all, insurers stand to be impacted in significant and far-reaching ways. The Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority has identified three key areas of risk for the insurance industry, many of which are already happening.”
“The first of these is known as physical impact risk, which relates to the increasing frequency and severity of extreme weather events across the globe. The specific types of weather events include hurricanes, extreme precipitation, tornadoes, landslides, mudflows, drought, wildfires, heat waves, flash floods and rising sea levels.”
Leaders of the Clintel Group of world scientists and professionals will attend the UN Climate Change Conference (COP25) which starts in Madrid today (2 December) and runs for twelve long days. (The Climate Summit was shifted suddenly to Spain after Chile cancelled because of violent riots in Santiago.)
Clintel will present their “No Climate Emergency” petition at the Climate Reality Forum. This petition has already been presented to the UN Secretary General, the European Commission and the European Parliament. Continue reading “No Climate Emergency”
The CLINTEL group has sent the attached letter in which more than 700 prominent scientists call on the members of the European Parliament to reject a motion to announce a state of climate emergency in the European Union.
