What’s changed in Britain since same-sex marriage? - David Sergeant

https://www.spectator.com.au/2017/09/whats-changed-in-britain-since-same-sex-marriage/     Four years ago, amid much uncertainty, 400 British members of parliament voted to redefine marriage in the United Kingdom.  Then prime minister David Cameron announced that, despite having made no mention of the issue in his party’s pre-election manifesto, it would be MP’s who decided the fate of marriage.  Now, it’s Australia’s turn to choose. There’s one key difference. Unlike in Britain, it will be the people who decide.

     Everyone agrees, whether they admit it or not. This is a decision of enormous significance.  Therefore, it seems sensible to analyse the consequences of the potential change, within nations in which redefinition has previously been carried out.

Welcome to 1984: Big Brother Google Now Watching Your Every Political Move By Robert Bridge

     RT News, September 12, 2017  https://www.rt.com/op-edge/402588-google-eric-schmidt-republicans/

     Google has taken the unprecedented step of burying material, mostly from websites on the political right, that it has deemed to be inappropriate. The problem, however, is that the world’s largest search engine is a left-leaning company with an axe to grind.Let’s face it, deep down in our heart of hearts we knew the honeymoon wouldn’t last forever. Our willingness to place eternal faith in an earth-straddling company that oversees the largest collection of information ever assembled was doomed to end in a bitter divorce from the start. After all, each corporation, just like humans, has their own political proclivities, and Google is certainly no exception. But we aren’t talking about your average car company here.

Australian Bureau of Meteorology Mucks-up by Dr Jennifer Marohasy Researcher & Writer

Keeping You in the Loop     There is evidence to suggest that the last 20 years of temperature readings taken by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, from hundreds of automatic weather stations spread across Australia, may be invalid. Why?  Because they have not been recorded consistent with calibration.

     Somewhat desperate to prove me wrong, late yesterday the Bureau issued a ‘Fast Facts’ that really just confirms the institution has mucked-up.   You can read my line-by-line response to this document here: http://jennifermarohasy.com/2017/09/bureau-management-rewrites-rules/

HOW ‘NOISE’ CREATES HISTORICAL ‘WARMING TRENDS’ – JO NOVA

      “Instrument errors, noise, may account for a quarter to one half of our national warming trend in the last century".

     When the newspapers run a headline with Sydney hits, say, 44.4 degrees and that number gets engraved in history, who realizes that the extreme heat may have only lasted one second? You might think the maximum temperatures were above 44 for at least ten minutes, but the BOM will write it into the record books even if that heat lasts one second, and if the temperature a minute before was more than a whole degree cooler.

Global Warming (Hallelujah) An Inconvenient Music Video


Elmer and the Bureaucrats. (M4GW)

Letter to the Editor - Blackouts Stalk Green Energy Utopia


     It is 7pm on a cold, still night in the city which boasts “100% Green Energy”.  Thousands of electric cars are plugged into chargers; electric lights, heaters and TVs are running; electric stoves are cooking dinner, electric trains and lifts are moving late commuters and early revellers, and the pubs and clubs are busy.

     The hills bristle with turbines, but there is no wind and not one is turning. Every roof is covered with solar panels, but there is no sunshine and the panels are fast asleep. The green city is facing peak electricity demand . . . on batteries.But for several days, clouds have shaded the solar panels and there has been no wind to turn the turbines - the battalions of batteries are running out of juice. One by one they drop out. The street lights fade and the city goes dark.

The War On Cars by Wallace Klinck


     There is a heavy ideological content, often accompanied by financial incentive, in the program for moving toward so-called “Green” modes of transportation.  These involve costs which generally are not openly publicized or often not even considered by some of these enthusiasts and/or demagogues, and freedom of choice in movement is usually a victim of these centrist programs which typically include increasingly exclusive schemes for mass transport by prescribed conditions and routes.

     I believe that there is good reason to suspect that especially militant proponents of such schemes are at least as motivated by envy and hatred of human freedom as they are about responsible use of the earth’s resources.  They probably feel empowered to the extent that they are able to control the actions of other citizens.  This is the “Will-to-Power” in action and manifests as domination and control by intimidation through rampant legalism inspired by equalitarian dogma and which goes far beyond realistic practical considerations of necessity and provides a weapon for ideological tyrants who conjure apocalyptic visions of universal scarcity and disaster to terrorize their victims into submission.

The Creative Ac-counting OF THE TEMPERATURE RECORDS

     I understand that if I ‘doctored’ the books of a company I would/could be charged with fraud… it is a criminal offence.  But what about the ‘doctoring’ of weather details by the Bureau of Meteorology, a taxpayer funded institution?  It seems that doesn’t count as a fraud.

     Do listen to Alan Jones’ interviewing Dr. Jennifer Marohasy on the ‘doctoring’ of the weather temperature details….  Appalling! http://www.2gb.com/podcast/dr-jennifer-marohasy/

WANT TO FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE? HAVE FEWER CHILDREN: THE GUARDIAN

     A timely news item from Breitbart News, 12 Jul 2017.  It provides a backdrop for Bernard Gaynor’s comments on US President Donald Trump’s recent warning to the West. Having children is a “lifestyle choice” to be discouraged among young people in developed nations and is bad for the planet, according to a new paper trailed positively by the British left-wing Guardian newspaper.Source:  http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/07/12/guardian-save-the-planet-have-fewer-children/

     Reporting a new Swedish-Canadian study promoting reducing the number of children born and seeking to target anti-child messages towards adolescents, Britain’s Guardian newspaper has played up the findings, labelling the “true impacts” of having a family as “lifestyle choices”, and asking the question of readers “Can you bring yourself to have one fewer of these?”.     “The climate mitigation gap: education and government recommendations miss the most effective individual actions”, published in Environmental Research Letters, is a new study by Seth Wynes of the Centre for Sustainability Studies, Lund University, Sweden, and Kimberly A Nicholas of the University of British Columbia, Canada.

BRAVO TO THE PEOPLE OF THE LIVERPOOL PLAINS… and Alan Jones

     It has been announced on Sky News the NSW government will protect the Liverpool Plains from destructive mining – but only after the folk of the fertile farmland in northern NSW fought for it!  It has been protected from mining by a foreign-owned (Chinese communist government owned…ed) coal company but critics say the state government’s intervention doesn’t go far enough with ridge lands still at risk. The Berejiklian government on Wednesday, 12 July announced it would refund $262 million to Shenhua Watermark to buy back more than half of a coal exploration licence in the Liverpool Plains region…

     NSW Energy Minister Don Harwin says mining activity will now be restricted to the ridge lands to protect the region’s fertile black soils.  Former local farmer Tim Duddy says the government’s decision is a step in the right direction.  ‘It’s not the silver bullet but it’s the start of one arriving,’ he told ABC Radio.  ‘This is about agriculture versus mining and it is an illustration that in some spaces they are not compatible’…     The NSW Greens have made similar calls, arguing Wednesday’s decision doesn’t go far enough in protecting the region’s water table.  ‘The idea that you can dig a 300-metre deep pit next to a flood plain and it will not impact on the water table is ridiculous,’ Greens MP Jeremy Buckingham said in a statement… An exploration licence for BHP’s mining project, also in the Liverpool Plains, was bought back by the state government last year.     One does wonder where were the Greens during the skirmishes and the ensuing battles?

BOOKER ON GRENFELL FIRE… and Brussels’ Bureaucrats

Source:  Christopher Booker, Sunday Telegraph 6/7/2017     The EU has made silly mistakes with fishing, fire testing and vehicle emissions regulations.When, amid all the millions of words uttered about Grenfell, are we finally going to focus on the real cause of that fire? A comment on my column last week said that “only Booker could get a link between Grenfell, the EU and global warming into a single article”. But that is precisely the point. Without those two factors, the fire could never have happened.

     As I had written, all this talk about “cladding” has been looking in wholly the wrong direction. The cause of the conflagration was less to do with the “rainscreen” cladding: it was the combination of 6 inches of combustible Celotex insulation foam behind it with a void creating a “chimney” effect, sending the flames roaring up the building.

Fatal Courtroom Act Ruins Michael ‘Hockey Stick’ Mann by John O'Sullivan


     Penn State climate scientist, Michael ‘hockey stick’ Mann commits contempt of court in the ‘climate science trial of the century.’ Prominent alarmist shockingly defies judge and refuses to surrender data for open court examination. Only possible outcome: Mann’s humiliation, defeat and likely criminal investigation in the U.S.

     The defendant in the libel trial, the 79-year-old Canadian climatologist, Dr Tim Ball is expected to instruct his British Columbia attorneys to trigger mandatory punitive court sanctions, including a ruling that Mann did act with criminal intent when using public funds to commit climate data fraud. Mann’s imminent defeat is set to send shock waves worldwide within the climate science community as the outcome will be both a legal and scientific vindication of U.S. President Donald Trump’s claims that climate scare stories are a “hoax.”

The Futility of Environmental Sentiment By William Waite

Ref: http://www.socialcredit.com.au/social-credit-angles/entry/82-the-futility-of-environmental-sentiment     This weekend gone I was happy to sign a petition objecting to the Adani development in the Galilee basin, Queensland. The information given me at my local farmers market accurately reported on a number of concerns relevant to the Adani project.  At the heart of the protest lay the concern about the environmental impacts of the mine. The commitment of those involved in these campaigns is admirable, and I sense that the public is increasingly receptive to environmental issues. However, in my view the strategy of the environmental movement is critically incomplete.

     In 1918 a Scottish Engineer named Clifford Hugh Douglas wrote an article called The Delusion of Super Production1 for The English Review. In it he lay out a problem he had discovered with the functioning of the economic system.Having investigated more than a hundred companies he found that production costs always exceeded the money made available to workers, except in businesses going broke.

WE NEED TO FACE THE FACTS – NOT UNREALISTIC IDEOLOGIES

“Demand enough renewables and you might as well ban coal” cautions science writer Joanne Nova. Source http://joannenova.com.au/16 June 2017       There’s a lesson Australia needs to learn from South Australia. When intermittent renewables reach a certain percentage of daily average supply they make baseload power unfeasible. The situation develops into an impossible dead end that can only be solved with container-ships of cash.

     The intermittent supply of wind and solar is the immoveable problem. It eats into the daily chart of the cheapest stable electricity supply — which is coal fired. Coal can’t be ramped in and out in minutes. It is a creature that runs best non-stop, efficiently, smoothly, at a high capacity factor (meaning it works best when it is producing around 90% of it’s design limit continuously).

THE INSTITUTE OF HISTORICAL REVISIONISM WAS WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!

      It was in March 2012 the Institute of Historical Revisionism (IHR) wrote of “America’s Great, Flawed Ideology of Individualism” (March 21, 2012).  Since that time the situation has only got worse and the American people struggle even more.  This has all been brought to mind by the recent newspaper headlines of the latest bombing in Manchester United Kingdom and the reported death of 29 teenagers in the bomb-blast. At the time  (2012) the IHR wrote:

“America’s ever more obvious cultural disintegration and social paralysis, and its erosion of national identity and purpose, are not minor or temporary problems, but are symptoms of a deep-rooted social-political illness and a systemic failure of the country’s democratic-capitalist system. In large measure, this sickness is the predictable, inevitable consequence of America’s basic ideology of “pursuit of happiness” individualism.  A guiding outlook that was useful, and perhaps even necessary, in an earlier age is now a liability. The ideology laid out in the US Declaration of Independence greatly encouraged this country’s astonishing dynamism, growth, inventiveness and prosperity, especially during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. But the core outlook that once contributed to this country’s development is incapable of sustaining a stable and healthy society. Especially in recent decades, America’s “pursuit of happiness” ideology has, inevitably and inexorably, been hastening our nation’s social-political dissolution and decline.”
