‘Chalming’ no one: Labor romances communism

By Alan Moran

Jim Chalmers is proving to be the most iconoclastic Treasurer since the Whitlam government’s Jim Cairns, a man who only joined the Labor Party after his application to join the Communist Party was rejected. Cairns spearheaded a previous assault on conventional capitalist economic theory and, like Chalmers, sought to borrow, spend, and regulate the nation into prosperity with fairness. Both Chalmers and Cairns came into politics with doctorates in economic history – that of Chalmers was a hagiography of Paul Keating, whose policies he now wants to reverse.

Climatologist David Dilley: ‘We’re Going Into A Global Cooling Cycle Now’

Government agencies say that carbon dioxide levels are rising entirely due to human activity and the burning of fossil fuels. But are they?

Professor Dilley will show that today’s temperatures and carbon dioxide levels are very close to where they should be based on historical cycles. [emphasis, links added]

He will also show that we are sliding into a long-term global cooling cycle. Global warming begins and ends at the poles—and global cooling is now occurring in the Arctic and Antarctic.

Professor David Dilley is a Meteorologist-Climatologist-Paleoclimatologist and a former NOAA National Weather Service Meteorologist.

Professor Dilley is the founder and CEO of Global Weather Oscillations (GWO), a company heavily involved in the research and development of technology for the prediction of natural climate and weather cycles.

Professor Dilley has 54 years of experience ranging from the Air Force to NOAA National Weather Service and GWO.

As the senior research scientist and forecaster for GWO, Mr. Dilley developed ClimatePulse Technology based on Geomagnetic Cycles of the Earth-Moon-and Sun, and how these cycles align with historical, present-day, and future cycles of climate and weather.

Billionaires Climate Lobby

By Barry Brill

There was once a time when climate change was about science. No longer.

It is now about money and politics. Not just some of it. All of it.

The peak event of the worldwide money-politics intersection is the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland. The 2023 “Global Risks” meeting is being held this week – with a dominant theme (again) being the campaign to eliminate the use of fossil fuels.

Like COP meetings, the Davos meeting is the very epitome of hypocrisy.

More than a thousand private jet aeroplanes serviced last year’s meeting. As Greenpeace says: “The rich and powerful flock to Davos in ultra-polluting, socially inequitable private jets to discuss climate and inequality behind closed doors”.

Climate Agencies and Extremes

Thanks to Graham Lloyd, (Letters to the Editor, Weekend Australian 14 Jan), many more people will now be aware of the biases embedded in our climate reporting agencies like BOM and the CSIRO. It is without doubt that they would rather report on ‘extremes’ of weather without much reference to historical records that show such extremes are within the bounds of natural variation.

The bar was set very low when Michael Mann introduced the world to his ‘hockey stick’ in 2007, showing unprecedented warming from 1920, only for it to be exposed as a figment of creative use of statistics, and cherry picking of tree rings in a single tree. When one sees data away from urban development, such as Hachojojima Island just south of Tokyo, there has been little or no change in daily mean maximum temperature since measurements began in 1907, a period of over 100 years.

Big solar goes Big Bust: Largest solar plant in the world dies before it can be built

From Jo Nova. Jan 11, 2023

Today the massive Sun Cable project collapsed into voluntary administration four years after promising to build the world’s largest solar power plant in the Northern Territory. Sun Cable was a $35 billion project supposedly to collect those sacred green electrons on a 12,000 hectare “farm” in Australia (120 square kilometers) and send them to Singapore via an 800 km land cable and then a 4,200km undersea cable. It was theoretically going to be nine times bigger than the largest solar plant in the world, and use a cable 6 times longer than the longest one ever built.

Gas Power Saves Texas From Blackouts, As Wind Power Collapses Again!

By Paul Homewood

From: https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2022/12/26/gas-power-saves-texas-from-blackouts-as-wind-power-collapses-again/

Over the weekend the US declared a Grid Emergency in Texas, as temperatures plummeted.

The emergency order from the US Energy Department allowed the state’s grid operator to exceed certain air pollution limits to boost generation amid record power demand in the state. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, whose service area includes 90% of electric customers in Texas, requested the emergency order Friday, warning it may need to resort to blackouts.

Australia’s Aboriginal Industry: Always Was, Always Will Be About Power

By David Barton

In 1983, as a naïve youth worker and concerned by what I had been reading since the early 1970s about what was happening with Aborigines in Alice Springs, I moved there to see what I could do to help. All told, I spent six years in Central Australia, leaving both depressed and convinced that the situation could never be fixed. …

Unfortunately, much of what passes for Aboriginal ‘culture’ today is an invention of the last 50 years. Fortunately, much authentic Aboriginal culture of the past has vanished. The gruesome initiations, genital mutilation, inflicted cicatrices, burns, ritual spearings, sorcery and payback murders have by and large disappeared. Nevertheless, inter-tribe clan grievances often remain, as can be seen at some football indigenous matches, both on the field and amongst the spectators. Even though these encounters can still become violent, at least those conflicts are mostly played out with a football, not spears and clubs.

English Heritage And The BBC Say Threats To Castles Are from Human – Induced Climate Change

Dr John HappsBy Dr. John Happs

English Heritage may have found a novel way of generating more funding, aided and abetted by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). The claim is made that a number of castles in the UK are now under threat from – you guessed it – human-induced climate change.  They state that:

“Castles that have stood for hundreds of years are at risk of being damaged by climate change.”

 https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-62995598

English Heritage implies that human activity is leading to increasing storms, rising sea levels, more coastal erosion and threats to historic buildings, as if those processes haven’t always been happening.

The Coming Crash of the Climate Cult

By Viv Forbes

The Climate Cult worships two green idols – electric vehicles and wind-solar energy. This is part of a futile UN scheme promoting “Net Zero Emissions” which aims to cool the climate of the world by waging war on CO2 plant food.

Green worship is the state religion of all western nations. It is promoted by billionaires with other agendas, and endlessly repeated by the UN, the bureaucracy, all government media, state education and most big business leaders.

The promotion of electric cars and trucks will cause a great increase in the demand for electricity to replace diesel, petrol and gas. Continue reading “The Coming Crash of the Climate Cult”
