Re getting rid of Barnaby Joyce with a mere $60, 000. Good luck with that. A fool and their money are soon parted!
$60 grand is indeed laughable. That would scarcely buy a complimentary lunch for all your campaign workers on election day. Those clowns obviously have a low opinion of voters in New England – where I am.
Here’s to a safe and prosperous year to all the MM team and contributors.
2019 is going to be an extraordinary year as event unfold.
We have the French peasants getting hot under the collar with the new Emperor.
Then there are the Belgians getting stroppy about unlimited UN intake of “migrants”, whilst the EU bang on about imposing fines on Poland and Hungary.
The Italians are pushing back against the influx and even the socialist Swedes are getting a mite peeved and restricting intake.
Germany is starting to flex its Arian muscles against Merkel and a “No Deal” Brexit is on the cards.
The EU are holding elections which should be fun and the US will usher in Pelosi who wants rampant socialism imposed on the Donald, if she can’t impeach him for being the elected president.
Brazil’s new president is about to ban same sex marriage, whilst Australia is about to fall into compulsory unionism, courtesy of an unrepentant rapist who will allow Safe Schools indoctrination to overwhelm our kiddies in preparation for rampant pedophilia.
Meanwhile “Big M” and his followers have a Sharia plan for us all.
Yes 2019 is not going to be dull.
As the Chinese say BN “may you (we) live in interesting times”.
Belated good wishes for Xmas and the New Year to all at MM. Spent both in hospital with pneumonia. Had a wonderful time but back on deck now for another year of common sense with MM.
Bwana Neusi, you have rounded up most of the coming events that will leave us in awe and amazement at the lunacy that has overtaken the planet. My greatest wish is that the UN will come unstuck in a big way.
News today that Anthony Mundine wants a rematch. I guess he loves the touch of canvas on the back of his skull.
And Farter Rod of Gosford is planning to run for the Senate.
Let’s put them together in the ring. Last one to stop talking crap wins the match.
With Kevin Rudd as the referee. Obviously no live audience at the venue, those three motormouths will burn all the oxygen between them.
“…loves the touch of canvas on the back of his skull.”
LOL! That made my day, Gregory!ROFPML
Here’s a commentary that I tripped over while idly wandering around the Web. It’s only 7 pages, and intriguing reading! I sort of subtitle it: “why conservatives are not getting traction against our marxist opponents”
A HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
Here is Peta Credlin on Brexit – this made the front page of The UK’s Daily Express.
Peta Credlin used to be former PM Tony Abbott’s Chief of Staff, and mirrored his conservative views perfectly.
Here is her recent take on Brexit, which I personally found very agreeable.
Been waiting for some intelligent comment on “pill testing” .
Has nobody figured the outcome of pill testing stations??
All persons submitting pills for testing are in possession of illegal substances!
Am I right or wrong??
Those in favour of pill testing are either ignorant , stupid or pushing a seperate ” Hegelian” agenda!
In order to have it work the drugs would HAVE TO BE LEGALISED to protect those seeking tests from breaking the law…..being in possession of illegal substances. What about those knowingly accepting illegal substances for testing, then reissuing those substances for the public to consume!!
This is another back door “Hegelian” attempt to legalise all drugs for public consumption! Why are the state & federal politicians so afraid to make public what they already know!!
Funny that all the left wing / socialists are so keen to legalise all drugs for public consumption. Karen Phelps being to latest to join the cry for testing of pills “”to save lives”. You cannot legislate to prevent stupidity!! Those that wish to indulge & die are submittitting themselves to the “kreepy krawley” of life which enables the gene pool to cleanse itself of stupidity. If you swallow these chemicals you will die. It’s that simple& the lefties are encouraging you! See something strange here???
Quite right GR. But what about the pill testing station giving the green light for some idiot to take such pills which then causes death? Who is responsible then?
Wallace, apparently when they go into the pill testing tent they are made to sign a waiver relieving the pill testers from any responsibility. How that works legally I have no idea.
See in this mornings news that some goose from the pill testing brigade now says that pill testing will not stop young people dying at music festivals. So what is the point of this seemingly idiotic pill testing push?
Your honour, when my friend John signed that waiver he was so stoned that he did not know who he was or what day it was.
KP says yes to pill testing.
I’m sure that between us, we could round up a bucketload to post to her office.
Funny how you nut cases hate the ABC and Fairfax (well you hate everything that caters to well informed, educated and reasonable citizens) yet direct your barely literate losers straight to ABC and Fairfax sites, not even bothering to just copy and paste as you did last year.
George, I am wondering which group you belong to because well informed and educated you certainly are not. I bet you think that Malcolm Turnbull is a good bloke.
.. and yet, “George”, you jump directly to playing the man, instead of considering the ball …
Bit of projection there, Georgey babe … ? Surely you’re not one of those .. Sprogs ??
From Jonova website, a comment;
How do we communicate more effectively the hidden costs/rorts of renewables that are increasing our electricity prices?
1. Rooftop Solar
a) Reduced capital cost. The generation of small scale certificates results in a reduction in the capital from about $9,000 to $6,000 on a 5 kW system. With 1.8 million households now having rooftop solar that is equivalent to a total subsidy (paid for in higher prices by all electricity consumers) of $5.4 billion. On annual total consumption of 193,000 GWhr, that translates to a cost increase of 2.8 cents/kWhr spread out over several years.
b) Feed in Tariffs (FITs). Rooftop solar owners are typically receiving FITs of about 10 cents/kWhr, when the real value is about half that. If those systems delivered 1 kW on average, and all that electricity was delivered into the grid, that is equivalent to a total subsidy (paid for in higher prices by all electricity consumers) of $790 million per year.
2 Hydro. All hydro systems, most now decades old, receive large scale renewable energy certificates. Hydro generation averages about 1800 MW. As well as selling their power for the wholesale price of about $80/MWhr, they also receive renewable energy certificates that have been selling for about $80/MWhr. That equals an additional profit (paid for in higher prices by all electricity consumers) of $1.25 billion per year.
Snowy hydro is owned by the federal government that recently bought out the Vic/NSW goverments for $6 billion. Half their revenue is from selling certificates i.e.a tax.
Hydro Tasmania is owned by the Tasmanian Government. (2018 profit of $169 million on revenue of $2 billion – includes retail arm Momentum Energy) – about half their revenue is from selling certificates i.e. a tax.
3. Wind. Wind generators, as well as receiving the wholesale price averaging $80/MWhr, also receive renewable certificates that have been selling for about $80/MWhr. Wind has been averaging abut 1700 MW so those certificates represent a subsidy/tax equal to $1.2 billion per year. That represents an increased electricity price of 0.6 cents/kWhr. But that’s not all – there must be backup of that 1700 MW for when the wind doesn’t blow, an additional investment mostly in gas of order $10 billion that sits there seeking a return on investment, therefore even higher electricity prices.
4. Network Costs. The ways in which the moves from central generation to an increasingly distributed and intermittent generation system are hidden. Each network operator runs a monopoly and must submit investment plans to government regulators. Once approved they receive about an 8% return on investment and that plus operating costs are passed on to retail companies to be recovered in electricity tariffs. But how much of those additional investments are due to additional poles and wires, transformers, and control systems to manage variable wind and solar generators (including rooftop solar) do not appear to be explained anywhere. Yet another hidden cost of the “renewable revolution” that we keep getting told is cheaper than fossil generators, as our electricity prices continue to soar.
What have we done to have this renewable rort madness imposed on Australia?”
Scott Morrison, our Clayton’s PM, thinks that protesting about black African thugs running riot in Melbourne is intolerant and racist. Not everyone is a fan of Fraser Anning but he is the only politician with enough backbone to call black African thuggery out and tell it like it really is while our politicians and police commanders bury their heads and tell us there isn’t a problem.
The reaction of the political dumbos to this matter is another glaring example of freedom of speech and the right to protest only being OK if you agree with those who are selling this country out to unsuitable immigrants.
Right Albert. It’s far worse than you say. Our political system is broken. EG: Anning is elected to the Australian Senate on 19 first preference votes. The system allows scumbags, crooks, idiots and opportunists to get their snout s in the trough. Anning knows his $200,000 plus is gone at the next election and sticks his finger up all Australians with his contempt. By all means go to the rally but pay for it out of his $200,000 pocket to maintain some basic decency. Now you know why we are learning to hate politicians.
Albert: It is worth a read of this https://www.michaelsmithnews.com/ in respect to a statement by Fraser Anning which shows up the skullduggery of the media and politicians in respect to this matter.
PP, many thanks for the lead. Anning is right and the reaction of the PM and other politicians to the rally is a disgrace.
The PM calls out intolerance and leaves us in no doubt that those who have been directly affected by black African violence by way of home invasions, car jackings, jewellery store robberies in broad daylight and mob attacks upon individuals are, in his estimation, intolerant.
If you have the audacity to complain about black African gang violence then you are a intolerant racist according the our leftist PM and his ilk.
I think the politicians denouncing right wing protests against African crime gangs will probably get a big surprise when Sen Fraser Anning gets a lot more than 19 votes this time. Are the usual suspects – ABC, SBS, Labor Party, Pauline Hanson, even Scott Morrison incredibly politically unaware or complicit.
I wonder what Mark Latham privately told her.
Do these politicians not know what is happening in Europe as people wake up to the fact that they are being herded towards Communism, Globalism and Islam? Millions of people paid a heavy price when Socialist Hitler tried to rule the world during WW2 and they have not forgotten. Socialist/Communists ruin every country they bamboozle the people into believing their lies.
Anning may be looking at how the MSM has worked for Trump and thinking he can get a piece of that action.
He’s probably not wrong. The media’s never ending attempts to hurt PDJT have only left them looking stupid and corrupt.
Insert ‘lies about size’ joke here.
That reminds me of the guy interviewed after Trump won in 2016.
He said it was no surprise to him. Shock! Horror! “Why!” asked the interviewer?
He said because he attended both Trump rallies (often about 20,000 people) and Clinton rallies (often about 2,000), but the TV cameras were always placed to make the Clinton crowds look bigger than they were.
Fraser Anning suffers from that good old NQ disease of telling it like it is, a disease that is dying out thanks to the wetbacks that have infested the joint over the last thirty or so years Far from losing votes and support I think that he will get more votes and more support to the detriment of Morrison et al. We need more Fraser Anning’s. Katter mouths all the crap to get him reelected just as his father (old Bob) did and Katter follows Bob’s footsteps by changing parties and bullshitting.
Rubyred raises some very good points above that need to be reemphasised. Firstly it is abundantly clear that Morrison is a nowhere man, a gutless wonder who without Abbott winding him up each morning, pinning his ears back and sending him off on a predetermined track he is nothing and that’s all he has to offer Australia.
Morrison epitomises the modern liberal to a tee; can’t fight, can’t defend, can’t see the goal because he doesn’t know what it is. Australians are on track to be flogged back to third world status or probably worse by Electricity Bill-Whatever It Takes and his army of Brownshirt thugs, championed by the Australian media.
Ruby also points out that Hitler and the Nazis were socialists they were the extreme left. Fraser Anning points out that the only extremists he saw were in the extreme left goose stepping mob 100m away from the group he was listening too.
But there was no extreme left that the myopic media could see, funny that.
The left owns the goose step with its stiff arm salute. It’s not parody when they do it, it’s an affirmation of the tyranny that lurks, it’s a warning. The Brownshirts are ready to march!
This is a point that should be made over and over. Thrust in the face of every lefty journalist with the same vehemency that they label any opposition as Far Right, Nazis.
Contradict them every time and ask them why is there no “far left” in their lexicon and make them own their left wing heritage, the goose step and Nazism is at the heart of their beliefs.
But know, the Liberals would rather attack their own and score points off the likes of Fraser Anning rather than take the fight to their enemies and start winning the war.
Every time the item was on the news it was “Far-Right extremists and Counter-protesters”. Not Far-Left. Not Extreme-Left. Just “Counter-Protesters”.
It’s a bit like the MSM’s steadfast refusal to use the term “Muslim Extremist” as if, if they didn’t use it, maybe the problem would disappear.
Of course, if you complain to the media, they lie and deny.
Can someone pls try to log into Pickering Post and let me know here. Have been trying for 2 days now and not able to ..can get everthing else.
Ive tried several times SD once a short while ago (This morning) At first I thought it may be the Christmas break, still could be. I know they did want to keep it going as long as possible.
Harry has apologised on Pickering @ Facebook for the delay in getting the website back up and running again, and asks for patience please.
It struck me that the Pickering Post was/is undergoing a DDOS attack. Interestingly, the latest article was penned by none other than Fraser Anning before the site became unreachable.
Ok thanks guys and gals, possibly is DDOS attack re Annings article.
It’s up again, I’ve just opened it okay.
It was broken. Told me my browser is working and that Cloudflare in Sydney is working but there is a Host Error.
Subconsciously I knew there was a reason I wanted to get into Pickering Post yesterday……. Harry R could have made my rant above totally unnecessary and you readers would have understood quite clearly what I was on about.
Here tis. http://pickeringpost.com/story/are-the-left-right-/8738
Or have a peep in at LP, open for business again and this is to be continued……..
Thanks for the link, nev.
Australia the loser from Paris …
Well, well! The queer rat Slipper woos Brazil. Bolsonaro is against corruption. He might rue the day he met Slipper as Slipper might rue the day he conned Brazil.
I hear he doesn’t have a very high opinion of gays, either!
Wait till he finds out about this appointment…
It’s funny and it’s scary, and keep the eye bleach handy.
Why do I get the impression that Pelosi’s tongue appears to act as if it’s sloshing around in a plastic bag half full of silicone, and botox and that’s why she can’t talk properly. Either that or there’s been so many lifts she is of the belief that her hi brow has something to do with intellect.
Pelosi didn’t realise she’d had one too many facelifts until she had to start shaving under her chin….
Reading the printed version of Daily Telegraph today an article regarding the coming NSW state election referred to: YouGov Galaxy Poll.
You will recall that YouGov is a left leaning UK firm that was involved in the US Presidential Election campaign and favoured the Democrats and candidate Clinton.
In Australia they also now own Newspoll.
So folks, remember, polls are not necessarily accurate polls.
Wasn’t aware that Newspoll is now owned by the YouGov pissants – thanks for that!
The inevitability of gradualness (Fabian Society), slowly but surely the globalist socialists are herding us into their new world order.
I noticed several years ago that Spewspoll results were A, regularly carried shoulder high by the media and B, regurlarly tilted in favour of whatever leftist brainfart was the flavour of the day. So this is no suprise.
Is Malcolm Turnbull Rigging Newspoll?
Wind turbines are neither clean or green;
FROM AN INCOMING EMAIL:
I used to think I was just a regular person, but I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.
I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.
I am heterosexual, which now makes me a homophobe.
I am mostly non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.
I was christened by my parents, which now labels me as an infidel.
I am retired, which makes me useless.
I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me,which must make me a reactionary.
I am proud of my heritage, which makes me a xenophobe.
I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.
I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.
I (and most of the folks I know), acquired a fair education without student loan debts and little or no debt, which makes me some kind of an odd underachiever.
I believe in the defence and protection of my country and I honour those who served in the Armed Forces, which now makes me a right wing-militant.
Please help me come to terms with the new me… because I’m just not sure who I am anymore!
Funny …and it’s all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years!
As if all this nonsense wasn’t enough to deal with, Now I’m not even sure which toilet to go into!
Well, damn it Albert!
I guess I fit into all those categories, too!
And I’m proud of it!
Fag-loving socialist traitors can eat sh*t and die.
Been there, done that and more importantly, still doing it.
Albert, hope you don’t mind but I have copied and sent to all my friends who I hope will forward it and keep the ball rolling. Oh, and being in my seventies it describes me to a t.
Crankykoala, it wasn’t mine. I also got it in an email and posted it here on MM.
Excellent advice for Scott Morrison in ‘Quadrant’.
Personally, I don’t think he has the ‘ticker’ and so the once great Liberal Party will continue to fade into insignificance.
(I hope I’m wrong)
The far left media in full flight as Fraser Anning pees on their parade:
That’s a classic!
Blonde bimbo from the Far-Left MSM almost hyperventilating in an attempt to goad Anning into making some spiteful response. Result: abject failure.
While Fraser Anning’s star may be in its ascendency it is sad to note that Senator David Leyonhjelm has decided to quit federal politics to contest a state seat in the upcoming NSW electoral farce.
Ever wonder under what authority local government (councils) can write laws and impose fines, charges and taxes?
It’s important to read the comments.
Albert: Quote from link ” Thus Councils Should Be Dismissed And Local Government Department Administrators Appointed Permanently.”
I couldn’t agree more, Local Governments are setup by State governments to devolve responsibility thus moving the blame game from State government to local councils which have no constitutional right to exist.
We had one of those appointed commissioners in Sunshine Victoria back in the early 90s. That resulted in an even distribution of the local rates all over Sunshine, not just the area where the council had its offices. It was great until the commissioner was replaced after several years by a corrupt council that looked only after its own “mates”.
A seditious ultra left academic, one Tony Walker, Vice Chancellor’s Fellow of the La Trobe University, wrote a piece that appears in today’s SMH in which he continues to sprout ill-informed and soundly debunked misinformation and lies about Fraser Anning and the St Kilda rally. This indicates to me that this bloke and his like would sell us out at the drop of a hat.
Albert: This bloke, Tony Walker is just another nong trying for his 15 minutes of fame with minimal effort in researching the subject of his bile, soon to fade back into obscurity. He would make a good candidate for receiving funding for yet another ‘The Great Barrier Reef is dying’ type study given his level of scientific credibility.
When you say ‘seditious ultra-left academic’ and ‘La Trobe University’ in the same breath, you repeat yourself.
Rumour in the MSM the Liberal Party are chasing Peta Credlin to stand for a safe Liberal seat ( I didn’t know they had one anymore).
Personally, I think she’s too good for the current Liberal Party.
Akto, will she have a run as a Liberal or as an independent? I would dearly like to see her in parliament because believe that she will take no nonsense from the LNP, Labor, the Greens or anyone else that sticks their head up.
That’s a good thought, Albert, to stand as an Independent. If she joined the Liberal Party, the self proclaimed ‘moderates’ would only undermine her, as they did with Abbott.
What she should do is orchestrate conservative defections from the liberal party and start again.
What I THINK she will do is keep out of politics, she’s very good with Sky and her views on Brexit are being published in the UK Daily Express.
You will notice, that already some MSM sources have labelled her as ‘from the Right’ and therefore extremist. That’s what they do nowadays, according to them, all of us here on this blog are from ‘the far right’.
The Brexit issue is really boiling now. I have friends in the UK from the Leave/No Deal camp who are spitting chips.
Now they know what it’s like when the Party Room betrays the voters!!
I have explained to them that both our main parties here have tossed aside their voters wishes in place of their own agenda, since 2007.
Think Gillard, and Turnbull.
(Morrison is just a Turnbull accomplice and is a non-event, he’ll be gone soon)
So I have expressed my sympathy – I think their best guy is Jacob Rees Mogg.
Hamish McDonald, extreme left SMH scribbler, claims that Peter Dutton insults our intelligence when in fact it is McDonald and his fellow scribblers in the MSM snake pit that are the real insult to the intelligence of thinking Australians.
I see that right royal pain in the backside Rob Oakeshott and his motor mouth intend to reenter politics at the next election. He must be running short of money and needs another dip in the pig trough.
Exactly, Albert. Just a motor mouth government money sucking leech.
Should we build a wall ?
I don’t think it would hurt at all if the Govt were to shut down for a few weeks – give us all a break.
Yeah…it wouldn’t have to be very big…just long enough to go around Canberra.
It’d become like that old movie “Escape From New York”, where the whole place was walled off and became an anarchic prison.
The 97pc climate consensus fraud
The climate-change brigade’s methodology doesn’t pass muster; in the scientific circles I mix in, there is an overwhelming scepticism about human-induced climate change.
In the Royal Chemical Institute of Australia, a majority of the “chemists” believe in the climate change scam and don’t even ask questions about their lack of knowledge of the physical processes of our planet.
As Luk has mentioned, the R.A.C.I go along with the Climate change scam. The Royal Society of Chemistry in the UK do as well.
The main reason stems from the fact that both Institutes have gone ‘academic’, the Private Sector is not represented anymore, as it used to be.
And academics are always changing funding, whatever it takes.
Follow the Money Trail.
Yes Ak, I was part of the private sector. Most of the people I saw in RACI were either academic or government. But then a chemist I worked with at Dow believed in the scam even though he was a much more knowledgeable chemist than I was. At one time Dow didn’t fall for the scam but now they are onboard with it. They are run by an Aussie who took Dow into the NWO full steam.
The push against Australia Day is gaining momentum and Dick Luigi’s interview with Steve Price proves that Dick Luigi is prepared to run with misinformation and a rewrite of history because he knows bugger all about the truth of the ‘First Australians’ myth.
In addition GetUp has joined in with even more misinformation and dodgy rewrites of history to suit their arguments.
Aborigines have more national days than you can poke a spear at:
Survival Day; Day of Mourning; Invasion Day; Sovereignty Day.
Maybe the abos could have a Health Day, where all the abos spend most of the day taking a shower with soap, washing their hair, and brushing their teeth.
Yairs, and a Toyota Land Cruiser day too. Toyota must love them to bits for every mission and so called “community” has yards full of Toyotas.
Seems the man hating razor Company Gillette, gives mankind a video full of reasons why we shouldn’t buy their shavers. At the same time the effeminates they promote won’t need to shave
Looks like SCHICK is for MEN
The tragedy of cultural relativism by Paul Joseph Watson (recent posting) and why we need border control.
PJW is the master of the conservative short-form news report. His pieces go straight to the target. Like a champion prizefighter, he lands punch after punch.
Correct. PJW is always spot on with his news reporting. Shame there are not more like him.
I’m just waiting for him to be banned from Youtube for having “Conservative” views.
Shorten has promised that if he gets into government he will give the UN $500 million to assist in bringing tens of thousands more unsuitable and unwanted so-called refugees to Australia. His lunacy is in the name of diversity and cultural enrichment and the monumentally failed UN concept of multiculturalism (tribalism).
Thanks Albert: I regard this situation as Darwin’s Theory Of Evolution at work.
Albert and PP agree with you both regarding Short-on-everything’s pedigree. I think his DNA may pre-date evolution or it just simply passed him by due to lack of WILLING partners.
I think it’s got much more to do with votes!
Does Shorten really want to be PM? His ideas are as popular as a ham sandwich at a bar mitzvah.
Sometimes I think he wants to stay on the opposition benches. Even if he loses the upcoming election he’s safe as Labor leader – just look at the alternatives.
Only had to read the article in the WE Australian…the people-smugglers are cleaning their boats and tuning their outboard motors getting ready for the moment the traitor is elected.
Comment from JoNova website:
January 20, 2019 at 8:36 am · Reply
I came across a paper at Viv Forbes’ site comparing Sydney’s temperatures 1791 v. 2018. The graphs tell the story. Apart from the fact that there has been no change in overall temps in 230 years, the paper is most notable for that specific admission by the pro-AGW authors of another paper cited — Karoly, Gergis and Co.
In their words “Remarkably, the records appear comparable with modern day measurements taken from Sydney Observatory Hill, displaying similar daily variability, a distinct seasonal cycle and considerable inter-annual variability.”
The 1788-1791 daily records were taken by William Dawes 6 times per day on Observatory Hill from September 16th 1788 to December 6th 1791. Prior to that Dawes took his readings on board the Sirius anchored in Sydney Cove.
It should be remembered that about 1790-91 was an El Nino period when the Sydney settlement — relying solely on the Tank Stream — sailed perilously close to running out of water. In 1790 the “tanks” were cut into the sandstone beside the creek to try to conserve a supply of drinking water from the almost non-existent flow.
Backing up the records Dawes kept are anecdotal entries in the journal of Watkin Tench, a Captain of Marines with the First Fleet. Here’s Tench speaking of the Sydney heatwave a few miles inland at Rose Hill, February 1791:
“An immense flight of bats driven before the wind, covered all the trees around the settlement, whence they every moment dropped dead or in a dying state, unable to endure longer the burning state of the atmosphere. Nor did the peroquettes [parrots], though tropical birds, bear it better. The ground was strewn with them in the same condition as the bats.”
That excerpt is taken from the book “Watkin Tench – 1788” edited by none other than everyone’s favourite climate alarmist FLIM FLAM, but that was before he was a climate expert, so he can be forgiven his indiscretion.
Apparently it got hot in the olden days too. We’ve seen Flying Fox kills in the last 10 years but no parrot kills that I am aware of, so I guess the heat is not as extreme now as in 1791. Birds have slightly more tolerance to high temps than do bats due to the birds’ inherently higher body temperature relative to mammals. From old farmers alive during the 1930s heatwaves, I also know of bird kills at that time in the Moree district NSW when tough old galahs dropped dead out of the trees in their hundreds. That critical bird mortality temperature has not been reached in modern times, whereas it was reached in 1791 and the 1930s.
Would someone please tell the ABC.
Interesting, especially the part about heat killing the wildlife.
DT: Thanks for this, ’tis very interesting indeed. The document should be essential reading for all school students and politicians.
Thank you PP.
Maybe send it to the relevant Minister, Prime Minister the BoM and other government funded organisations creating fake information, and the Opposition, and ask them to please explain the deception they indulge themselves in?
And another Green Energy Scam bites the dust!!
Mariners and explorers from the Middle Ages onwards kept very detailed records of their observations and activities, for which we should be extremly grateful.
Also, when observing or averaging daily temperatures, the index to focus on is the MINIMUM temperature, and their variations. If Global Warming was happening, the minimum temperature averages would steadily rise. My understanding, though is that they are very steady.
Conclusion (based on real life observations and not on computer modelling) is that there is no significant change.
So – no extra funding is required.
Yes, Akto. IIRC, this is correct when examining a moving series with dual or more parameters. Apparently the least-affecting parameter turns out to be the most significant parameter (somebody or other’s law, again, IIRC).
Green’s MP Cate Faehrmann admits to taking drugs to bring some honesty to the debate. It is OK though because she only takes drugs a few time a year and of course they are “recreational” drugs and non-addictive, according to her. Her honesty though only goes so far because she isn’t honest enough to say whether she has taken drugs since becoming an MP. I would take that as a Yes she has.
Is this a green light for young people to take drugs or is this a green light for young people to take drugs?
