Patches of abnormally hot seawater beneath the ocean surface referred to as Blobs are naturally generated by submarine volcanic eruptions. A recent example is the North Pacific Blob1 which caused weird weather conditions accompanied by major ecological changes in the Pacific northeast including two years without winters in 2013 and 20142. This was featured as a ‘heat wave’ in the September 2016 issue of National Geographic and was used to support the anthropogenic global warming alarm. However, based on the study of available information including satellite and ARGO data buoy records, the release of geothermal heat from the Nishinoshima volcanic eruption 940 km south of Tokyo3 from March 2013 to August 2015 was identified the culprit4,5.

The warmist ABC recently trumpeted a forecast (from an unproven academic model) that global warming and urban heat will make Brisbane too hot for many residents within 30 years.
But what about people in Darwin and Cooktown right now – should they migrate to Brisbane?

How to Turn Cooling into Warming:
By Daniel Fitzhenry March 2019
The seas and oceans to the east of Australia forms the largest body of water on Earth. This broadly connected vast body of water presents a genuine sea level. The Sydney Fort Denison Recording Station provides stable, accurate and genuine mean sea level data. The following table shows mean sea levels at 10 year intervals and these levels are related to Chart Datum which is at the lowest spring tide level.

Beneath the thin veneer of concern about all life on Earth, it would appear that many of those who claim to care for the environment actually do more harm than good.
Many of the Green Zealots also have little regard for humans. Millions of lives could be saved if activist groups, such as Greenpeace and GE-Free New Zealand, did not oppose the genetically modified strain of rice known as “Golden Rice.”
Scientists have produced “Golden Rice” to address Vitamin A deficiency and related deaths so common amongst the poor in developing countries. These are people who cannot afford to eat a varied and balanced diet that would give them the essential nutrients they need.
The distribution and consumption of “Golden Rice” would address the Vitamin A deficiency problem and save countless lives. Unfortunately there are those who actively oppose and prevent this.

Battery Storage-An Infinitesimal Part of Electrical Power
By Steve Goreham
Originally published in Energy Central.
Large-scale storage of electricity is the latest proposed solution to boost the deployment of renewables. Renewable energy advocates, businesses, and state governments plan to use batteries to store electricity to solve the problem of intermittent wind and solar output. But large-scale storage is only an insignificant part of the electrical power industry and doomed to remain so for decades to come.

What has happened to Australia’s once-bipartisan policies favouring decentralisation? Why is every proposal to develop an outback mine, dam, irrigation scheme or a real power station now labelled “controversial” by the ABC and opposed by the ALP/Greens?
This coastal-city focus and the hostility to new outback industry (except for wind/solar toys) has surely reached its zenith with the recent state budget for Queensland.
The population of coastal and metropolitan Queensland is surging with baby-boom retirees, welfare recipients, grey nomads, tourists, overseas students, migrants and winter refugees. But the outback is dying with lagging industry and many aging farmers retiring to the coast. We are creating a country with no heart.

“The food we eat the water we drink and the power we use for most of our endeavours, are available only because previous generations invested their know-how and money for the future.
It is time this generation did the same.”
– Ron Pike.
Australia is a dry continent – that is a fact of geography and global climate.
However, per head of population, we have abundant fresh water resources in rivers, lakes, dams, soils and underground. But we do not conserve enough of it, and much of what is conserved is wasted by foolish policies. Continue reading “Australia’s Growing Dam Crisis”

Dichloro-diphenyl-trichloro-ethane (DDT) is an organo-chlorine insecticide first synthesised in 1874 by the Austrian chemist Othmar Zeidler. Its insect-killing capacity was later realised by the Swiss chemist Paul Muller in 1939.
Although it is readily absorbed through the exo-skeletons of insects, it is poorly absorbed through the skin of mammals. It kills insects by disrupting the transmission of electrical impulses between their nerve cells, causing them to fire spontaneously. Fortunately, DDT does not have the same impact on higher-order animals.
DDT was widely used by the military during World War 11 to control malaria, typhus and body lice and in 1944 Winston Churchill acknowledged the huge benefits that DDT offered to so many countries, saying: Continue reading “GREEN ZEALOTS AND INSECT-BORNE DEATHS”
Why Resources Aren’t ‘Natural’ and Will Never Run Out
By Steve Goreham
Republished with permission of The Washington Times.
Last week, the World Wildlife Fund proclaimed May 10 to be Europe’s “Overshoot Day,” the day that Europe consumed its portion of Earth’s resources for the year. The WWF, the United Nations, and universities continue to warn that modern society is rapidly depleting our natural resources. But instead, trends show that for all practical purposes, Earth’s resources will never run out. Continue reading “Why Resources Aren’t ‘Natural’ and Will Never Run Out”
