This is surely the most pathetic excuse put forward to justify doing nothing.

Everyone needs to take on their share of action, particularly those countries who have built their wealth on carbon emissions like Australia.

Failure to form any energy policy by successive regressive coalition governments in Australia has suffocated investment in the energy sector resulting in us paying some of the highest electricity prices in the world. Worse still it has cost this country dearly in lost opportunity when we could have been part of the action instead of ending up as consumers of technologies developed in other countries when the inevitable change arrives.

The notion of some making big money from climate change really is the craziest part when corporations with huge values on their books from fossil fuel reserves are spending countless millions buying governments to back their agenda and ensure they don't have to write down what would otherwise be stranded assets.

Unfortunately there is no intelligence test for voting and it is compulsory here. We have to wait for the regressives to die out.

Galaxiom is suffering from massive brainwashing.

How are Tim Flannery predictions going

Obviously all those floods they had in QLD were fake news.

Re: NASA Study Indicates Antarctica is Gaining More Ice Than It's Losing -

In our May Federal election, the opposition leader, that is, the bloke bidding to be Prime Minister said it would take 8 minutes to fully charge and electric car

His deputy, a woman and a huge pusher on climate change, in a radio interview did not know the percentage of the atmosphere that was CO2.

These are the people who are full bore climate change people

(USA)
I remember when being a conservative in the Democratic party was a good thing. My parents were "good Democrats" they embraced liberal ideas based on a conservative foundation. They had a balanced approach to life and politics. Now the Republican and Democrats have completely abandoned the very people they were elected to serve.

So I sit on the sidelines as an independent hoping the two sides will meet somewhere in the middle.

Sadly judging from the clown car the dems are putting forth in next primary it's business as usual for the next 4 years.

Re: NASA Study Indicates Antarctica is Gaining More Ice Than It's Losing -

James Cagney and Ronald Reagan were originally Democrats.

I am 71 and based on ages of both sides of my family I am on the home straight I would hate to be 41 or for that matter they the world is going even 61.

In Australia I think apart from the ridiculous immigration and massive regulation the two things that really drive me nuts are the climate change bullshit and all this gender bullshit. The Labor/Greens coalition is way down this track. Lucky they did not win the last election.

I reckon you're on the right track there somewhere. It is apparent that some people just do not like capitalism, and the conservatives who promote it. They do not like entrepreneurs who make a shitload of money. But the political banner they used to follow and support, "communism", has been shown to be more corrupt than any form of capitalism, to the point where Russia imploded in on itself.

So as a left wing politician, how can you keep your job? You either shift the Labour party more to the right like Tony Blair did, or you make up some new fictitious challenge to fight against!

Hence we have:-

The climate change & gender bandwagons.

Re: NASA Study Indicates Antarctica is Gaining More Ice Than It's Losing -

We have a very left wing show called Q&A on the gov't channel, sort of our counterpart of the BBC. Basically an audience with questions and a panel of 5 (different ones each week) and the host.

A few months ago one of the science blokes on the panel said a very well know conservative radio broadcaster had all his numbers wrong on CO2. HOWEVER, he must have forgotten about 3 years earlier he was interviewed by the radio host and agreed with everything and reinforced it. Naturally the radio bloke replayed the interview many times over

Obviously the scientist had got on the climate change payroll

We have this climate scientist bloke Tim Flannery who in the very early 2000s said it would not rain again in Australia etc. He was made Australian of the Year. The recent floods in Northern Queensland covered an area bigger than England and other European countries.

It will be interesting to see what happens in 5 or 10 years as all the predictions fall over.

As I said earlier, if you can get a fortune in gov't subsidies to put up windmills then good luck to you. However, how people believe this nonsense and just what will happen out of Australia erecting windmills everywhere has me beat.

It seems to really such in the inner city people in cities like Sydney. These people have more earings than a curtain rod.

You don't see a lot of windfarms and solar farms in rich neighborhoods, sometimes you won't see immigrant's or homeless either. They don't want it. They want the power station towers to run thru your neighborhood. They have influence and big donations to keep the grid somewhere else.

After all that's a million dollar view the unwashed is trying to block...with their climate change nonsense

How could this be? How can science be influenced by money? I wonder if this could somehow correlate with climate change?

Nah!

Scientist Who Discredited Meat Guidelines Didn't Report Past Food Industry Ties
Quote:
The new report, published this week in the Annals of Internal Medicine, stunned scientists and public health officials because it contradicted long-standing nutrition guidelines about limiting consumption of red and processed meats. The analysis, led by Bradley C. Johnston, an epidemiologist at Dalhousie University in Canada, and more than a dozen researchers concluded that warnings linking meat consumption to heart disease and cancer are not backed by strong scientific evidence.

Perhaps you might consider where is the money concentrated on industries affected by Climate Change?

Which side already HAS the billions of dollars to buy whatever opinion they wish to prevail?

The notion that those advocating for action to be taken on carbon pollution have paid off the virtually the entire scientific community is utterly ludicrous.

Clearly you are not interested in thinking about the reality of which side has the money to buy the opinion they want.

Oh, that's right, you aren't actually interested in thinking about the issue at all because you already decided it isn't your problem.

Re: NASA Study Indicates Antarctica is Gaining More Ice Than It's Losing -

I saw an article today and the author is pro climate change but he reckons not just the Swedish girl but all the other alarmists will cause huge problems when the stuff at their level of prediction does not come true.

He used Tim Flannery as a shining example of giving those of us who think it is bullshit a magazine full of ammo.

One of the other things that dents climate change is lefty media seems to have a habit of reporting what they want to happen. For example Fairfax and the ABC had it as impossible for Trump to win but Sky News predicted a Trump win. ABC and Fairfax had Labor a 100% win Sky News predicted Scott Morrison would win.

The climate change is a left wing media speciality but they always get everything else wrong.

And that science bloke on Q&A who said all the numbers Alan Jones used were wrong but forgot he had a previous interview with Jones where he was just the opposite. Obviously he is now on the climate change payroll. HOWEVER, what level of stupidity must he have to think Jones would replay that interview over and over and how dumb were the Q&A people to let him on.

Predicting a Trump win was easy, I did it myself. The odds were stacked against Hillary.

Although the following is only a small percentage of vote they add up.

1) America has just had a "first" with Obama. Hard to get two "firsts" in a row.

2) Normally a POTUS will get his two terms and the next POTUS will be from the other party.

3) If Hillary had won that would have meant America has a Bush, Clinton, Bush and another Clinton. Has the dynasty feel about it.

4) In this general generation we had Bush Sr and Bush Jr as POTUS. The odds of getting a husband and wife as POTUS in the same time frame is small in the extreme.

Of course Hillary likes to be liked and waster so much time in states like California. Almost as if she did not realise winning by 1 vote or getting 100% of the vote is the same, you win that state.

I know there are two sacred cows on the left, one is evolution the other is climate change. To be a good leftist you can never wavier on those subjects no matter the cost.

You are entrench to the point of anarchy.
