Friday

DocumentaryI have heard ADH TV has permission to show Climate: The Movie in full at 9pm (Sydney time) tonight. This is a rare chance to send the link to friends and introduce them both to alternative media outlets as well as a rare professional old fashioned documentary done with class. As I said, this is perfect for the curious, matter-of-fact mind. It’s not angry or activist, so it’s easy to share.

You can help in the information war…

    A Pronouns Quiz

    You can bet the woke Albanese Goverment is working on similar legislation to Scotland’s “Hate Speech” laws where misgendering nut case could land you in prison.

    When it comes to nut cases it is hard to top this one.

    Are the correct pronouns

    “He-She” or She-He” or “It”?

    I have previously commented that I have swatted blow flies with greater intellectual capability than our esteemed Energy Minister.

    If the Albanese Goverment were serious about reducing CO2 emissions quickly from motor vehicles they would listen to Toyata

    Here in the West, we play cute little games like a forced switch to EVs, while ignoring almost totally any common sense commentary on the subject (For example, Toyota’s 1:6:90 rule which states that for the same amount of raw materials to manufacture one EV, Toyota can make six plug-in hybrids or 90 hybrids, and in doing so would achieve 37 times the emissions reduction of a single EV. Yet Toyota is scorned for such logic on the grounds that “Toyota’s reluctance to fully embrace EVs can hinder innovation in the EV industry.”

    https://wattsupwiththat.com/2024/04/03/444000-semi-loads-of-food-just-another-day-on-planet-earth/

    Hybrid Toyota’s cost only $2500 more than pure ICE’s and petrol savings are currently around 33% – so based on average Australian kilometres per annum of 13,300 km per annum the payback period varies from 3 to 5 years and many Toyota hybrids are half the price of a Tesla. And the payback period is less if you drive more than the average, especially in regional areas that will be hard to service with EV recharging stations.

    Subaru will be using Toyota hybrid systems matched to their Boxer ICE

    https://www.drive.com.au/news/new-subaru-forester-hybrid-toyota-power/

    Another interesting development is the following:

    https://www.drive.com.au/news/toyota-yaris-corolla-hatch-go-hybrid-only/

    But do not expect any intelligent solutions from Bowen and Albanese any time soon (to non-extisting problems). These two do not event talk to each other – taking their own private jets to photo opportunities to boost their personal carbon footprints!

      .?? Wow !…such a blatent missquote (lie ?) !
      No one can use the materials from one car to make 90 different one !
      .without checking, .i suspect they were refering to BATTERY materials only !🙄

        What
        Toyota actually said…..

        Enter Toyota: A leaked document reveals the automaker told its dealership network that the lithium and other rare materials required to build an EV could also be enough for six plug-in hybrids. Or, it could make 90 hybrids. What’s more, swapping 90 internal combustion cars for hybrids is much better for the environment than building one full EV. Much, much better. Toyota: “The overall carbon reduction of those 90 hybrids over their lifetimes is 37 times as much as as single battery EV.”

    Why the wealthy woke are still buying ocean side properties

    The sea level rise experienced in recent decades was supposed to lead to shrinking shorelines and inundated coasts. Instead, satellite observations reveal the globe’s island coasts expanded seaward (net) by 402 km² since 2000.

      The Elites buying such property is reminiscent of the Superman movie in which Lex Luthor buys up cheap desert land with a view to triggering the San Andreas failt, sending western California into the sea and he becoming the new owner of prime waterfront property east of the San Andreas fault.

      Similarly, the Elites are trying to scare others away from living near the ocean so they can buy land they hope to devalue.

      The hybrid Corolla makes more sense for the inner city, with a lot of stop/start traffic the fuel consumption difference between the hybrid and regular ICE gets much larger.

      On a long, open freeway, the difference is only slight.

      Also, servicing is somewhat more complex for the hybrid so being in a populated area means you are closer to spare parts and you have a better selection of experts to look after the thing. Once you get out of town, the mechanics know how to service diesel HiLux or LandCruiser and not much more than that. A new hybrid battery would be a special order, you could be off the road for weeks.

      Police say JK Rowling committed no crime with tweets slamming Scotland’s new hate speech law

      “Freedom of speech and belief are at an end in Scotland if the accurate description of biological sex is deemed criminal,” she said.

      Police in Scotland said the force had received complaints, but that “the comments are not assessed to be criminal and no further action will be taken.”

      There are a lot of ather articles, took just the first 😀

          That’s not right. Neither are safety. There are plenty of rich and famous people who keep quiet. Which is the point of such oppressive laws against freedom of speech, a basic democratic right.

          Rowling’s stand takes real courage and she gets a lot of abuse and death threats. And wealth and fame are no protection from the law. Ask Donald Trump who was fined $450Million without a trial. And still faces a lifetime in jail on many other charges.

            And she has to accept the strident criticism of most of the people she made rich and famous. That must be disheartening. Where is Harry Potter?

            But she has fought solo before and from nothing to get where she is. A poor single mother, she knows what it takes. She did not start rich and famous. A person of very strong convictions she should be a role model for all.

              It is ironic that as far as I have read, the only actor, director or producer who has publicly supported Rowling is the arch villain Draco Malfoy, Tom Felton.

              And Rowling is a very public supporter of gender identifying people. She simply denies that while you can choose gender, a pyschological view, you cannot change your biological sex. She is no hater. That is a lie.

              For this scientific fact, she is persecuted.

              How long before there is a Law against climate deniers, with police convictions?

                I know the Left can’t define what a woman is as Matt Walsh proved in his “What is a Woman Documentary” but surely there must be some non-woke biologists somewhere that can support her in court with her statement that you cannot change one’s biological sex?

            Like most things, there’s an up and a down side.
            Wealth and fame can provide safety, and make you a target.
            A harder but more attractive target.
            Going after JK at this time would be a bad tactical move, hardening the opposition before fully vanquished.

            Power once achieved is seldom relinquished voluntarily.
            Make that a never.

            The sad thing for me is I really love the pipes and drums.
            I just can’t hear them the same way anymore.
            I’ve lost respect for the Scots for letting this happen.

                Politicians have no business in regulating speech. If they manage to criminalize comments there are no limits.

                Ahh, Tony Abbott. I remember him well. He’s the guy who stares down women’s tops and lusts after his own daughter. Or so his haters claimed. They even resorted to altering photographs to support their outrageous claims.

                Seriously, I can’t see any REAL conservative PM getting elected in Australia. The left and their media conspirators simply won’t allow it. The new rules of engagement are being written, as we speak, by the Democrats in America. And they’re not confining their dirty war to political leaders. Just look at the number of relatively low-level conservatives that have been targeted over the past couple of years, including Steve Bannon, Rudy Guiliani, Michael Flynn, Mark Steyn, Dan Wootton – all the way down to various ordinary citizens swept up and jailed from the ‘capitol insurrection’.

                It has never been harder or more dangerous to be right wing yet, as Mark Steyn said not so long ago, the press are acting like everything is normal.

      J.K. Rowling has challenged the Scottish Stasi to arrest her for thought crimes but they have failed to accept the challenge, probably because of thousands of complaints against Humza Yousef’s hateful and racist “white, white, white” speech and they would have to arrest him if they also arrested her.

      This again demonstrates that once the Left get into power, there is no infringement on freedom or free speech they won’t indulge in.

        And I am really pleased at the reaction of the Scottish people, not the rich and famous, not the politicians. Like Australia with The Voice. The Scottish people have used this appalling law to point out the obvious, that it is Humza Yousef who is the hater. This is the importation of Arab intolerance into the UK and people do not like it. There are vastly more things to fix like the highest death from overdose rate in Europe. And knife crime in London, a direct result of that other famous Brit, Sadiq Khan. The bat boxes are a brilliant legal response to his oppressive rule.

        We are in an era where professional politicans ignore people, on the basis that if all parties have the same views, they can do what they like. In Australia it’s Climate Change and police powers during lockdown and prohibiting valuable drugs. You can hardly tell Conservatives from Adam Bandt and Albansese, both avowed communists. In Australia LINOS like Malcolm Turnbull and in the US RINOS abound.

          In Australia we have banned Nuclear Energy. In Victoria, we have banned coal and gas. And in my local Council, they have banned Nuclear missiles. And the people just get on with their lives, as much as possible while paid public servants wreck the joint.

          And politicians pass laws which make no sense and slowly stretch the bounds into illegality and no one notices.

          I believe most of the Climate Change/Carbon Tax laws are illegal. From both parties. And they are wrecking the place.

            Marxism as a religion has like Islam a basic principle of conquest, internationalization. This is the brand admired by Bandt and Albanese.

            Stalin however rejected this, which set him apart from Albanese’s hero Trotsky and Bandt’s hero Lenin.

            What we are seeing with Climate Change, mass uncontrolled migration, deconstruction of history, transgenderism, hatred of religion, vilification of empire, of white people, of males, of Jews is raw Marxism. Even Cultural Marxism.

            This is the current Australian political position. At least the current Victorian Premier is not making secret pilgrimages to Beijing.

            And China is behind that, even if President Xi sees Australia only as a bug to be squashed and Albanese of no consquence.
            The country which emits more CO2 than all G20 countries combined is the one selling windmills and solar panels and building the world’s biggest armed forces.

            It must be amusing seeing Democracies pass laws against their own people while accepting mass uncontrolled disruptive migration. And they have imprisoned their own Uighur muslims. So much for tolerance.

    One area that absolutely destroys our current science theories in almost every area is…
    Where did the salt come from?
    They’ve found even Mars has a layer of salt that was thought to be water.

    These morons are studying water… evaporated water which is what is in the atmosphere and not our major source of Ocean water.
    In one experiment they showed how heating a rock brought out water by the evaporation on an open breaker and ignored totally the water vapor all around.
    Atmosphere water is what they’re trying to base theories off of that it’s contained in the rock as they are theorizing on.

    Huge chunks on our outer solar system which is difficult to detect by melting when closer to Sun it comes to.
    Ocean water evaporated in huge amounts

    The theory of Ice Age too missing where did the salt come from.
    The glaciers are fresh water which means evaporated ocean water.
    Not at anytime is asteroid or meteor impacts and skiffs are considered in the conclusions.
    Our planets quick rotation creates evaporation through the nitrogen gases extreme vibration.

    Still won’t allow certain words to be used.

      Using the term “Climate Change Denial” is a give away as to the credibility of Simon’s “Fact Checker” source.

      Claims that CO2 is not “Plant food” but some type of poison! What a joke. The Climate Cult has deemed coal to be the devil incarnate as so CO2 must be evil.

      CO2 in greenhouses allows crops to utilize their photosynthetic potential. Adding CO2 to greenhouse can be done by burning natural gas or liquid CO2. Supplying extra carbon dioxide is a frequently used method to increase the yield of greenhouse horticultural crops.

      I guess these greenhouse horticulturalist are hallicinating from smoking too much home grown pot! Or is that Mr S?

    The thinking community needs to establish a “CO2 Celebration Day” to celebrate the fact that earth came very close to yet another mass extinction event as all the CO2 got sucked out of the atmosphere but recovered.

    Fortunately, due to nature, it is now returning. Let’s hope it goes to 800-1000 ppm so there is enough of a buffer zone above 200ppm (at which point mass extinction begins).

    Whatever happens, happens however. Madly burning “fossil fuels” won’t have any significant impact because that’s not where a vast majority of it is coming from.

    Whale protection lawsuit explained

    Time to save the Right Whale from the Green-Left
    By Craig Rucker, CFACT President
    https://www.cfact.org/2024/04/03/time-to-save-the-right-whale-from-the-green-left/

    The beginning: “Back in the sixties and seventies “Save the Whales” was the exclusive domain of the political left. As Bob Dylan might say, “the times they are a changin.”

    Three major “conservative” organizations – the National Legal Policy Center, Heartland Institute, and my organization, the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow – recently filed a major lawsuit in a Washington, D.C. federal court to save the Right Whale from facing potential oblivion.

    Why aren’t the larger Green groups, unlike the grassroots ones, rallying around the efforts of these organizations to save Right whales? Good question. Perhaps it’s because the threat to the remaining 350 of them doesn’t come from Russian, Norwegian, or Japanese whaling vessels, as it did back in the 70’s. Rather, it is from so-called “Green energy” in the form of offshore wind. Right whales are being threatened by the Biden Administration’s fast-track plans to hurriedly place 30,000 MW of wind power generation off the Eastern coast, and doing so without the proper sort of environmental impact assessment they might otherwise perform for, say, offshore oil.

    The collective decision by our outfits to take the issue of whale protection to Court came after two years of futile attempts to get the Biden Administration to listen. Offshore wind development threatens the nearly extinct North Atlantic Right Whale in various ways, and the government refuses to investigate. The two agencies which share responsibility for making sure wind development does not harm whales include the Interior Department’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), which oversees building wind facilities, and the Commerce Department’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS or NOAA Fisheries), which enforces the various laws to protect whales. Neither seems intent on doing their job.

    In issuing its “biological opinion” last September, for instance, NMFS only examined the impact that each of these projects individually and in isolation would have on the North Atlantic right whale. The agency did not, as it should have, issue a comprehensive and cumulative analysis examining the combined harm which all the projects, together, would inflict on the whales during their annual migration path.

    If it had done so, it would have uncovered that dangerous noises generated from several projects combine to create much louder and more dangerous circumstances for marine mammals than noises coming from just a single project. In fact, impacts can combine over time as well, such as when migrating Right Whales are repeatedly forced to go around a dozen wind facilities into heavily trafficked shipping lanes. The risk of being struck by a ship then becomes ten times greater than for a single project.

    It’s likely for such reasons the Endangered Species Act specifically calls for assessment of cumulative impacts such as these, but the Biden Administration has ignored this requirement.”

        One of the best, and most scary, “Please Explain’s” yet.

        As with all devious plans of Green Labor, it has earlier support with the pretend conservative Liberal Party.

        From Wikipedia:

        Plans to expand the capabilities of the ubiquitous Medicare card were announced in 2006 by then Human Services Minister Joe Hockey. The proposed Access Card was criticised by some relevant interest groups and political activists as a step in the same direction of an Australia Card. However, the Howard government was unable to implement the scheme before their electoral defeat in 2007.

    The warming activists always say follow the science. The credentials of the scientists in this movie is impeccable and impressive and should at the very least put some doubt in an activists mind about their preferred narrative. The fact that it should do this but probably won’t is really the basis of the problem. Most activists are too indoctrinated to see reality and to suggest that a belief system that has given them comfort for a decade is false would be too traumatic for many of them to contemplate.

      Arguing the science with warmists is a waste of time, because AGW isn’t really an environmental movement but a political one. Their real objectives are also political. They’re happy to keep arguing about the so-called science as though that really is where the matter is decided because it maintains the facade. The science they talk about is just the magician’s hand that he waves around while the other flips the cards around.

      Watermelons indeed.

    Look, this is great that “Climate: the movie” is going out on some new media. But the audience of ADH TV is well down the climate scam rabbit hole already. So, it’s a bit like preaching to the choir. When this movie gets aired on 60 minutes on Sunday night or ( god forbid ) gets a slot as a 4Corners episode on their ABC- then that would be significant. But again congratulations to Jo for at least publicising this movie. Because I don’t think I have seen it mentioned at all in the MSM.

    So it’s all about changing minds.

    My mind was changed, I once believed in climate change, much like Tom the movie’s producer. So what changed me? About ten years ago I saw on youtube basically everyone in that movie, Happer and Lindzen especially.

    I don’t actually understand science, like 99% of people, despite the 100% who think they understand it perfectly.

    So I was left thinking, ok who do I believe? I’m being asked to make a decision on an argument between two scientists. How am I to do that when I don’t know science? All I ever have is an opinion, of who is wrong and who is right.

    So once I realised this, I noticed all I can do is make decisions on what I actually know. You can only make decisions with certainty on known things, everything else is a gamble. No matter how far you have to regress to find known facts and how crude the decision is, your chances of making a successful decision are greatly increased, no matter how basic it is.

    And so, I have to regress to knowing for a fact that the earth biosystem is still here after many changes to its atmospheric composition and everything else. Thus, it will survive despite further changes. One hundred percent confidence interval on that one (leave out the meteor catastrophe scenario – or bioengineering).

    So its a usable decision level, the question is survival, and we have an answer to it. So the gambling starts with how can we can survive any change. The secret to that is cheap available energy, another undisputable fact. Logical management.

    But our managers have another way of making decisions. They’re going to form an opinion, and put all their eggs in one basket on that opinion. They’re going all in for a royal flush. Completely illogical. Nonscientists making decisions on which scientist is right.

    But the important thing, is seeing scientists disagreeing. That was the catalyst for me. And I always say first thing in argument with others on climate change, that very well credentialed scientists do not believe in this stuff. They are generally surprised.

    This is why this movie must not be shown by big media.

      Well described Philip. I was always skeptical about the science, because that is my nature and also livelihood. But one thing I have learned in the past 5 years is you cant “red pill” the believers in man made climate change. You have to sow seeds of doubt, which is not difficult. What I now call “pink pilling”. I think I started with explaining to friends and family how ” the polar bears are doing just fine”. This movie provides loads of those simple examples. 🙂

    “Climate Alarmists’ Bad Science”

    “I debunked research by the Federal Reserve and top academic economists on the economics of climate change. An author of a paper I debunked then said that three professors from Stanford and Berkeley had done a much better analysis of temperature and growth in an article they published in Nature. I took up the challenge and scrutinized their article. My critique appears in the latest issue of Econ Journal Watch.

    The Nature article is in the top 0.1% of academic economics publications by citations, and it has received glowing press coverage. I downloaded their data and found that, as with the other articles I debunked, the results don’t hold up under scrutiny.”

    The IMDB has a review of Climate the Movie and it is reasonable and most comments are positive.
    But they referred earlier to Clintel group of Scientists as Clinton so they should’ve used more care.

    Well, as expected, the nutjob neocons are pushing full steam ahead for WW3 before the US “elections” in Nov.
    They’ll legally destroy Trump or JFK him in some form to eliminate the risk of him actually winning and the USA exiting NATO. Can’t have that! Russia must be destroyed even if it takes the whole world down too.
    Blinken’s statement that Ukraine WILL join NATO guarantees WW3, no matter how you look at it. Forget 5 years, that’s fantasy. They need it NOW!
    I know people in Ukraine and I can only hope they escape ASAP, but I also know that’s unlikely.
    Everyone in the USA had better be well prepared by now as time’s about up.
    All the talk on prepper sites about top escape spots like Iceland is w-a-y wrong. Dawg help anyone following their advice.
    Elsewhere, there’s going to be severe shortages and panic buying, so start filling your garage or secure lock-up, if you haven’t already.
    No, NOT bread and milk, which will be the first things the sheeple will panic buy. Long term storage items only, not highly perishables. 4 years worth is enough.
    Remember the insane TP panic buying because of a virus?
    Imagine how people will behave when WW3 is declared.
    Things are accelerating quickly, and it’s prioritising time.
    Don’t be in the CNN group with their fingers in their ears going “la la la la la”.

    The South Pole emerged from the period of highest solar intensity in the past 20,000years without any appreciable melting. The summer solstice daily sunshine peaked at 550W/m*2. The highest of anywhere on Earth.

    Ever wondered why it does not melt with all that sunlight getting to it? Clearly it is not easy to get rid of an ice mountain surrounded by ocean that is just above freezing.

    While getting rid of it is not easy, and takes a lot of energy, getting the ice there took a lot more energy. I have calculated that it would take 185,000years at the current rate of ocean heat retention of 12.9ZJ/yr to get the 26e15M^3 of ice out of the ocean and on to Antarctic. Creating the ice on Antartica lowered oceans by 80m. It takes 31ZJ of ocean heat input to liberate 1mm of water from the ocean surface to deposit it as ice on freezing land.

    Greenland is just starting to get more sunshine and the water around it is warming up. But the ice coverage on Greenland is INCREASING. It will be 100% permanent ice again by 2075. Greenland is the canary in the coal mine for ending the present interglacial. Atmospheric water in the lower latitudes of the NH is trending up at 3% per year. The Net heat absorbed by the NH oceans is trending up at 3.6ZJ per decade. At present there is enough net energy into the NH oceans to lower the oceans by 2mm/yr but alll and more is presently being returned through runoff as the snow melts. In 100 years, on present trend, there will be enough net heat absorbed to lower the oceans by 3mm/yr. Then in the next 100 years enough to lower the oceans by 4mm/yr. Before that, the ice will be advancing south on the land and not all the water will be returned so the oceans level will fall again as it does with the onset of glaciation.

    The point of all this is that getting ice onto land requires a HUGE amount of heat into the oceans. For it to stay on land, it only needs to fall in enough quantity so that it does not all melt during the next summer. Once it becomes permanent, it is hard to shift.

    I have looked at hundreds of permafrost records other than Greenland and found just two that are reducing in depth of melt. One is on the north coast of Alaska. The other is on the north face of Mount Marnot. These could be early indicators that the permafrost is reversing in regions aside from Greenland.

    Note that the linked report is of a Leftist orientation and compliant with the Official Narrative.

    🇦🇺🎯❌ Melbourne, Australia Was Used Cruelly In A UN Directed Experiment During The Covid-19 Lockdowns! The People Never Gave Informed Consent As They Were Used In This Nefarious Way!

    “The Melbourne Experiment is a landmark interdisciplinary research collaboration to study the effects of the COVID-19 restrictions on key activities and elements of the urban environment before, during and after the COVID-19 shutdown.”

    Since this information was first posted the parties involved have tried to cover their tracks. Australia was less affected than most other parts of the world yet, Melbourne had the most draconian measures applied. This suggests this had more to do with an experiment than Covid-19.
