In 1998, El Nino caused a warm weather spike. In 2015-6 another El Nino created another warm spike. That’s what weather does – it fluctuates.

Long-term climate trends are more significant.

We live in the autumn of the warm Holocene period within the Pleistocene Ice Age – an era of lethal ice separated by brief, warm, carbon-rich, life-supporting interludes. The long-term peak occurred 7,000 years ago – glacial winter lies ahead.

The heat from the sun on N Hemisphere land masses (red line) is the driver.

Promoting destructive energy policies designed to prevent warming (and starve the plant world), just as the next climate winter approaches, is suicidal behaviour.

A hard core of this facade is local municipal councils. They attract the idiot fringe and they get elected because nobody can give a stuff about them until it hurts. This apathy needs to be addressed and mor blow torch applied to these idiotic do-gooders by simply voting for somebody who is not presently in office so that they never get a chance to become comfortable. Climate change is not a topic within the realms of local councils to influence yet millions of dollars is squandered by them on pet projects and jaunts to overseas conferences on the subject.

If the decision had gone the other way I wonder if this court would be so insistent on remaining within its perception of its jurisdiction. Only happens in Queensland.

So do I. At least 20 ears ago we had the panic about crown of thorns starfish. The reef will be gone in our lifetime! Good heavens, what are we seeing now. Time to tax something else.

I wish to apply for Government funding to help combat the impending climate change crisis.I’ll require a couple of million dollars for research and development for my innovative plan.It’s top secret and highly confidential, but I heard on the grapevine our Government is willing to assist star up ventures.Without divulging too much information , I look forward to an agile and prosperous future with my climate controlling Volcano Plug.

Viv , we have the technology to make a fair shot of feeding a lot of people in an ice age, but it is all going to be destroyed , it would seem. Adani shouldn’t be digging that coal , we should be setting up a huge, clean , modern power station . With hundreds of years of fuel. We can only dream , of course.

wags, You are right about Adani and the Greens, however the Greens are getting major accidental support , because all of these developments don’t benefit Oz long term. Unless we are to become peasant workers.

What effect does UN/NATO geoengineering have “VF”? While they keep doing it we’ll find out with disastrous consequences. Look it up if you don’t believe.

Based on previous experience, the press selects the news that hopefully will cause the most alarm to serve their cause. Adani is on the brink of getting the right to go ahead with the coal mine – supplying Australians with employment and $ from wages and exports. BUT the greens don’t like this – having lost their last round with Adani – so they are trying yet another furfy re the ‘bleaching’. In the natural order of things, parts of the reef will die (we’re not told how much) and parts of it will be regenerating. So goes the cycle… Read more »

India and Africa need the coal as it is the cheapest fuel for them to use. With it, electricity can reach many of the population , and the people have more chance of education, clean living, clean water, more jobs etc. The UN and their friends do not want this. They want to be the wealthy ruling class, and the rest of us to be their workers and slaves, living in poverty..

Miranda Divine said it best: “The planet will warm, the planet will cool, and there is nothing that anyone can do to change it.” Rest easy about any action taken by these lunitics. It will come to naught. The appaling waste of money and rescources though, is cause for outrage.

Thorn. Just bought a conventional chest freezer; nothing flash. I’ve had ‘off grid’ solar for eight years. I have a timer on this freezer that switches off at night. Result? -16 deg when it goes off, -16 deg when it restarts. In any event this unit consumes only 23 Kw p/a.

Larry, they could not care a toss about climate change. All they care about is the government grant money they get to keep the hysteria going.

BK: What about the impending fuel shortages. We don’t have refineries anymore with only 3 weeks storage and a looming blockade of the South China Seas preventing the oil supplies reaching us.

Those of us familiar with the military topographical maps will know that each map shows a “magnetic variation”. This changes over time and each reprint of these maps will update the magnetic variation since the last print and shows an annual change since that print. Over 15 years or so the difference is small but it NEVER reverses. It always increases. In a million years or so, perhaps only thousands, the North Pole and the South Pole will swap places. In the middle of this period, expect metres of ice in tropical Africa and sunbathing above what is now the… Read more »

BK, I also remember, in the 1970’s, scientists telling us we were about to go into an Ice Age. This, of course, was followed by Gore, et al, telling us of horrendous, man-made Global Warming. Now it is ‘Climate Change’……….something even stone-age man could have told us about (without making us pay for it).

We have a big generator which has been wired into the house in case of emergencies. However as I point out to my better half, what happens when you can’t buy diesel for it. Do you have to have tank on your property filled with it. We used to have one when we were running our hobby, bob cat.

I read a comment this morning on Bolt’s blog about Tesla shutting down their back up battery plants for solar panels.

Phantom I heard him say that also, but I think he must be a bit of a dill as he said it only cost him $10 day for fuel. Add that up and it makes it $70 per week then multiply by 12 (bills comes in every quarter) and that is $840 per quarter. Makes one wonder what his electricty bill was with his solar panel rebates.
