Has CSIRO Passed its Use-by Date?

Letter to the Western Australia Chief Scientist, by Dr John Happs

10th February 2022

Dear Professor Klinken

I would like to respond to your talk on ABC radio (9 th February 2022) in which you appeared to promote the idea that the planet is warming as a result of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions, resulting in a number of climate-related extremes.

Now retired from academia and consulting work, I have respectable qualifications in the geosciences (M.Sc. 1st Class; D.Phil.) including climate and paleoclimate and feel confident about providing opinions in these disciplines. Additionally, it is always prudent these days to add that I have never been employed by, or have had any financial interest in any energy provider. Perhaps of more significance, I have followed, with increasing concern the climate change debate and politicization of the issue since the inception of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 1988.

Despite the media parroting the false impression that most scientists support climate alarmism, the vast majority of scientists do not.

“Finding Porites” – Windsor Cinema Nedlands, Perth, 1st December 2022

By Jennifer Marohasy

It is often reported that the Great Barrier Reef is half dead, specifically that the corals are bleached, and the water quality is degraded with pesticides and plastics. If I didn’t know better, I might never want to visit a coral reef, lest I be confronted by this reality – apparently all our fault, because we drive cars.

Except the coral reefs on the way to Myrmidon made me feel so alive. Every day, I dived into crystal clear warm water, to be greeted by little fishes. Every day, I wondered if we would make it all the way to Myrmidon – an ancient and detached coral reef that juts out into the South Pacific Ocean on the eastern edge of the Great Barrier Reef.

I tell this story in my film Finding Porites.

If you live in Perth, you will be able to watch Finding Porites on the big screen with me at the Windsor Cinema in Nedlands on 1st December.  Tickets here: https://perthbleachedcolourful.eventbrite.com.au

This film premiered at the Majestic Theatre, Pomona, near where I live in Noosa, last year. It was then released by the Institute of Public Affair on the internet, to their YouTube channel. Just last week a new version, re-rendered to 24 frames per second to better suit for the Windsor Cinema on 1st December 2022, was upload by Stuart Ireland to his Vimeo channel, ’tis here: https://vimeo.com/766755037 .

The Biggest Public Policy Disaster in a Lifetime

By Ian Plimer

The 27th COP event is preceded by breathtakingly shrill predictions of forthcoming disasters from speculated catastrophic climate change. Here are a few cold hard facts:

No one has ever proven that human emissions of carbon dioxide drive global warming. For more than two decades I have been asking scientists for this proof. If proven, it would also have to be shown that natural carbon dioxide emissions, 97% of the annual total, don’t drive global warming. This also has never been done. Furthermore, if had been proven that human emissions of carbon dioxide drive global warming, there would be endless citation of the dozen or so seminal scientific papers demonstrating this proof. Instead, there is obfuscation and deafening silence.

Living in the Latter Days

How to Defend Australia

By Viv Forbes

Australians are living in the latter days of the Anglo/American Empire.

For centuries now, world power centres have been moving west – from Mongolia, to Europe, to Britain, to North America, and now Asia beckons.

The Anglo/American Empire today resembles the decadent dying days of Rome. Europe is becoming a green energy wasteland, the British Empire died with Churchill, and America has dodderers and adolescents in charge. Australia plans to defend the outback with battery-powered Bushmasters (good for battlefields with plenty of power points). The new defence minister has restored “rainbow morning teas” (banned by Peter Dutton). And an Australian iron oligarch and green hydrogen speculator, Andrew Forrest, aims to de-power Xi Jinping by inviting him to the latest Climate Summit.

Every chapter of history ends with a flood of barbarians. Continue reading “Living in the Latter Days”

The UN’s Antonio Guterres: Misinformed About Climate Change Or Serial Liar?

By Dr. John Happs

[Originally published at: https://papundits.wordpress.com/2022/10/24/the-uns-antonio-guterres-misinformed-about-climate-change-or-serial-liar/]

“When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the losers.” (Socrates: 470–399 BC)

António Guterres

António Manuel de Oliveira Guterres is a Portuguese politician and former secretary-general of the Portuguese Socialist Party from 1992 to 2002. He has served as secretary-general of the United Nations (UN) since 2017, being re-appointed to a second term in June 2021.

When it comes to climate change, UN officials have made their socialist intentions clear in that they want to use the issue of imaginary “catastrophic anthropogenic global warming” aka “climate change” aka “extreme weather” to bring about the collapse of industrialised nations, establish global governance and oversee the transfer of wealth from developed countries that have earned it to those developing countries that simply want it.

Women in Combat

There is one Western, liberal democracy that remains in constant danger of being overrun by its neighbours, neighbours who have been taught to hate it with their mother’s milk.

That is Israel.

Israel has an interest in maximising the number of people who can be applied to combat so it trialled using women in combat.

That wasn’t successful for two reasons.

Firstly, troops are trained to keep advancing despite the injuries and screams of their comrades who have been hit by enemy fire. If they don’t, the attack might break and you end up with a worse situation – troops held down in exposed positions and the wounded and dying needing attention. Troops can be trained to happily ignore males screaming in pain but seem to be evolutionarily conditioned to go to the help of females in distress. This breaks the attack and makes such mixed units useless on the battlefield.

Secondly, troops react to female comrades being wounded or killed by conducting reprisals against anyone to hand, enemy combatants or civilians. This isn’t good for discipline. So Israel abandoned using women in combat because it just didn’t work out. This is a great pity, but you have to work with what you’ve got.

Climatic Impacts of Submarine Volcanic Eruption El Hierro

Climatic impacts of the October 2011 to March 2012 El Hierro submarine volcanic eruption El Hierro

By Professor Wyss Yim. First published in Imperial ENGINEER, Autumn 2013

Ocean has three main climatic impacts. First, the hot and low density seawater immediately beneath the surface speeded up the tropical Atlantic currents, rushing the tropical waters northwards. Second, the hot seawater warmed the atmosphere above causing a fall in air pressure to generate depressions. Th ird, the polar jet stream was drawn further south than normal in the North Atlantic Ocean. Consequently both the ‘normal’ oceanic circulation and atmospheric circulation were drastically altered. Th e combination eff ect is an extremely negative NAO including the development of a ‘Greenland block’.

Poisoning people to save the planet

By Ian Plimer. First published at The Spectator Australia: https://spectator.com.au/2022/10/australian-notes-322/

The blades from environmentally friendly subsidised bird- and bat-chomping inefficient wind turbines have a short life and cannot be recycled. They weigh 10-20 tonnes, are 40-60 metres long, need to be replaced every 15 years or less and are composed of plastic, fibreglass, balsa wood and resins. Balsa wood is produced by chopping down Brazilian rainforests, in an environmentally friendly way of course. Fibreglass is impregnated with epoxy resins to increase blade strength and are made from petroleum. Previously blades were disposed of in Third World countries for a pittance until these countries ungraciously decided not to be the dumping ground for First World toxic rubbish. The wind industry was miffed and took to dumping used blades illegally until communities objected. Continue reading “Poisoning people to save the planet”
