Independents Betray their Electors

Our Federal member (for Mayo) has been in Wentworth over the last week campaigning for Kerryn Phelps, safe-schools supporter and promoter of the early sexualisation of children. Now it is looking likely Dr Phelps will be returned, Ms Sharkie has formed an alliance with her and Cathy McGowan, and despite having promised not to support …

Hurricane Harvey Scares – Zombie Science

A few political hacks masquerading as scientists released a paper on 23rd April called “Hurricane Harvey: Links to Ocean Heat Content and Climate Change Adaptation.” You can find the paper at the American Geophysical Union with the breathless headline “Record Breaking Ocean Heat Fuelled Hurricane Harvey.” One of the authors of this travesty is Keith …

Green Power, Black Death

Paul Driessen pointed out years ago that green policies mean stopping developing nations from developing by depriving them of energy and clean water. Viv Forbes lists the ways green policies also undermine the continuing growth of the West. Greens are not only traitors to the poor, they are traitors to the environment: Greens hate individual …

CO2 and Methane

$3.80 out of $10,000. That’s the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. 1.7 cents out of $10,000. That’s the amount of Methane in the atmosphere. Terrifying, isn’t it?

Factless Climate Propaganda in SA’s Sunday Mail

OK, on one hand I am not surprised. The Sunday Mail is a paper I only ever read when it is being given away free. The conversation in the shop this morning was “Would you like a free paper, Peter?” “What, the Sunday Mail?” “Yes.” “No thanks.” “But it’s free.” “Hmm…” (remembering I can use it as …

And Right On Cue

Five minutes after I posted the previous article about global warming alarmists losing debates and resorting to insults, an article by professor of psychology Stephan Lewandowksy appeared on the ABC’s Drum website. It starts off well enough: Science is self-correcting. In the long run, occasional errors that slip into the peer-reviewed literature are ironed out. …

Is The Age Finally Seeing the Light?

Although The Age is a left leaning paper, I was a regular reader up until a few years ago. I am not sure what changed, but it seemed to me that The Age was no longer content with giving people the news and then saying ‘This is what we think about it.’ Instead ‘what we think …

Tornadoes Caused by Global Warming

Well, no, actually. But, hey Bill McKibben et al, don’t let mere facts stop you. Bill McKibben was one of the first (they are pretty quick, but he was the quickest) of the global warming alarmists to claim the Joplin disaster was OUR FAULT. Because of CO2 and stuff. In reality that is a complete crock of doodoom, …

Predictable Predictions

‘Will your home be underwater?’ asks the Adelaide Advertiser, which seems to be taking on a new role as the Adelaide (Labor Party) Advertiser. Under political pressure over its unspecified carbon tax, the Federal Government will release its latest topographical information about rising sea levels which shows up to 43,000 residential properties along the Adelaide …

Water, Water, Everywhere

On the ABC’s Landline in 2007: SALLY SARA: What will it mean for Australian farmers if the predictions of climate change are correct and little is done to stop it? What will that mean for a farmer? PROFESSOR TIM FLANNERY: We’re already seeing the initial impacts and they include a decline in the winter rainfall …

Osama Bin Laden Worried

And so he should be. But what is he worried about? Climate change. Of course. There are two possibilities here. Either Osama is an ignorant bloodthirsty hypocritical loon, and he really does believe that anthropogenic climate change is a bigger threat to world peace than he is. OK, it’s certainly possible. Or he is an …

Resistance Is Footle

Are the Islamists and Greens more like the borg, from Star Trek, or the Necromongers, from the sadly under-rated Chronicles of Riddick? OK. Don’t get the idea I have spent hours on this. But .. The Islamists are more like the borg. They are not interested in everyone. Some people are beneath consideration and might as …

BBC Biased?

Well, it was biased. But we’ve fixed it. It’s all OK now. That’s according to Director General Mark Thompson. Well, good. Everyone in England who owns a TV pays for the BBC through taxes and licence fees. So it really should be unbiased, as least as far as that is realistically possible. It should be everyone’s …
