Save the Crabbies, Not the Economy! A Lament from the Resident Job By Peter West

     At this advanced state of the decay game, we should not be surprised to see projects that give people jobs sacrificed at the altar of the environment:

“The community of Christmas Island could face an economic collapse after a proposal to expand the island’s phosphate mine was knocked back over fears of the impact to the island’s wildlife, including its world-famous red crabs. Phosphate Resources Limited has been mining on the Indian Ocean Territory for more than 100 years, but claims it needs to clear more crown land to access new deposits in order for the operations to remain viable. Under the expansion, the company wanted to clear an additional 6.83 hectares of land to undertake exploration drilling to determine the extent of more phosphate resources, in what has been described as a pristine area of the island.”

Only in Kalifornication By Chris Knight

     How absurd does it get? In California it is now illegal to have a shower and do laundry on the same day! This is to conserve water, even in times where there is no water  shortage, “just to be sure”:

“Senate Bill 606 establishes a “governing body” to oversee all water suppliers, both private and public and will require extensive paperwork from those utility companies. Assembly Bill 1668 is where it gets personal.  This establishes limits on indoor water usage for every person in California and the amount allowed will decrease even further over the next 12 years. The bill, until January 1, 2025, would establish 55 gallons per capita daily as the standard for indoor residential water use, beginning January 1, 2025, would establish the greater of 52.5 gallons per capita daily or a standard recommended by the department and the board as the standard for indoor residential water use, and beginning January 1, 2030, would establish the greater of 50 gallons per capita daily or a standard recommended by the department and the board as the standard for indoor residential water use. The bill would impose civil liability for a violation of an order or regulation issued pursuant to these provisions, as specified. If you’re wondering how the government would know how much water your family is using, the utility providers will be obligated to rat you out of face massive fines. And they’re encouraged to spy in all sorts of creative ways. They “shall use satellite imagery, site visits, or other best available technology to develop an accurate estimate of landscaped areas.”

Bees Die; Then Us By Brian Simpson

     Colony collapse disorder, which is threatening bee populations across the globe, continues to be an unsolved problem, but a problem that will ring in an era of hunger, if not starvation, if bee populations continue to crash. Around one third of all humanity’s food, and 80 percent of crops are pollinated by bees, so the best case scenario would be economic collapse:

     While many internet sites like to take a quick fix approach to this problem, putting the blame on neonicotinoid chemicals alone, a search of the scientific literature reveals that there are probably a whole range of insecticides, and maybe herbicides, and perhaps industrial pollution, which are impacting upon the honey bee:

Cutting Off the Head of the Snake By Tom North

     Is there a metaphor buried in this story, somewhere, anywhere? A man kills a snake, cuts off its head, but then, by accident he gets bitten by the severed head. So, how is this possible? Demonic magic? The New World Order? Globalism? White privilege? Political correctness in the land of the snakes and ladders? No. No:

“The answer has to do with the snake’s physiology. Snakes are cold-blooded creatures, meaning they get heat from external sources, such as sunlight and warm surfaces. (The scientific term for this is “ectotherm.”) Because snakes don’t need to internally maintain their body temperature, they don’t need as much energy — which is burned up using oxygen — as warm-blooded “endotherms” do, said David Penning, an assistant professor of biology at Missouri Southern State University who wasn’t involved in the Texas case. If a mammal loses its head, it will die almost immediately. But snakes and other ectotherms, which don’t need as much oxygen to fuel the brain, can probably live on for minutes or even hours, Penning said. “Severing the head isn’t going to cause immediate death in the animal,” Penning told Live Science. “It doesn’t need that much oxygen in the first place.” Granted, the snake might not have been self-aware that it no longer had a body. Rather, it likely just felt the pain from the decapitation and then tried to defend itself, Penning said.”

Coming Soon: An AI Caused Nuclear Apocalypse By James Reed

     It is straight out of the Terminator movies, with advances in artificial intelligence destroying humanity, the ultimate hubris:

“A new study conducted by the RAND Corporation warns that advances in artificial intelligence could spark a nuclear apocalypse as soon as 2040. The researchers gathered information from experts in nuclear issues, government, AI research, AI policy, and national security. According to the paper, AI machines might not destroy the world autonomously, but artificial intelligence could encourage humans to take apocalyptic risks with military decisions. Humans will inevitably trust in AI technology to a greater extent, as advances are made in AI for detection, tracking, and targeting. The newfound data intelligence that AI provides will escalate war time tensions and encourage bold, calculated decisions. As armies trust AI to translate data, they will be more apt to take drastic measures against one another. It will be like playing chess against a computer that can predict your future moves and make decisions accordingly. Since 1945, the thought of mutually assured destruction through nuclear war has kept countries accountable to one another. With AI calculating risks more efficiently, armies will be able to attack with greater precision.

The Enriched Pope By Peter West

     If you want to get a taste of the New World Order globalist religion, than the no hope Pope provides a one-stop shop.

    Here is the usual rhetoric of the Left; the global warming crisis, and migrants are right at the top of the list, but spiritual matters, what his day job should be, go way down the list. It is just about being a cool kid with the other globalist elites, showing that he is doing his bit to create the New Age religion of the New World Order.

Mummy, Where Did Sex Come From? By Peter West

     You do not hear much about the issues of evolution and God nowadays from Christians. This could be because Christians have learnt their lesson to keep real quiet and maybe scientists like Richard Dawkins will go quiet and leave them in peace, so the Church can go about its contemporary mission to recruit migrants to put bums on seats. However, time to time one comes across articles raising issues Christians should be squawking about, but who generally lack the courage, intellect, and education, to address. How about the question of the origin of sex, which seems to defy the natural selection of random genetic mutations mechanism:

“Why is evolutionary sex so threatening that it dare not even be mentioned in textbooks or science classes? Given the unique nature of gendered, sexual meiosis compared with non-gendered, asexual mitosis, the first-ever generation of sexual reproduction would have required 1) a never-before-seen male organism and a novel female organism, 2) magically having compatible chromosomes, and 3) a death-defying process of precisely halving their chromosomes, mixing them together in a revolutionary way, and then recombining to produce, not a clone (as in asexual replication), but a unique offspring unlike any on the planet. Not to mention the minor details of geographic proximity and an evolved instinct to mate—all absolutely required in round one of sex to get the sexual ball rolling.

There Goes Tasmania! By Peter Ewer

     Do we ever get any good news anymore? Certainly if I had some I would share it, just like if I had a packet of boiled sweets, I would give you one, being extraordinarily generous.  But, alas, there goes Tasmania:

“A proposed mega-development on Tasmania’s east coast has prompted concerns about fast-tracked development and foreign investment in the island state. The Cambria Green proposal was announced to the public in late April, four days before a local council meeting which voted to progress an application to create a special development zone that could house 550 accommodation units and hotel rooms, two golf courses, and an 80-bed health spa that could one day be used as a palliative care unit. The proponent, Cambria Green Agricultural Tourism Management, helmed by Shandong businessman Liu Kejing and Melbourne-based Ronald Hu, says on its Facebook page — it does not have a website — that it wants to “bring the surrounding community along our long-term journey” to support the “integrated, eco-tourism development”.

Letter to The Editor - Innocent Bystander Lynched

     I live in SE Queensland. Yesterday the surface air temperature rose from a frosty 2ºC at sunrise to a balmy 22ºC in mid-afternoon. The enormous heat needed to achieve this 20ºC of warming came via radiation from the sun. Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere plays no significant part in this daily heating event – in fact it may intercept a tiny proportion of the incoming solar radiation and re-radiate it in all directions, thus keeping the daytime surface temperature a tiny bit cooler than it would have been otherwise.

     At the deep Mount Isa Mine in NW Queensland, the surface temperature may average about 25ºC but it increases by about 1ºC every 50 metres of depth – rock walls are red hot in places. The enormous heat causing this comes via conduction from Earth’s geothermal heat plus some oxidation and heating of the sulphide ores as they come in contact with natural air containing oxygen. Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere plays no part in this heating.

Letter to The Editor - Weather, Carbon Dioxide and Climate Change

There are three big drivers of weather for any place on Earth – the latitude, the local environment and solar system cycles.

The biggest weather factor is latitude – are you in the torrid, temperate or frigid zone? These climatic zones are defined by the intensity of heat delivered to Earth’s surface by the sun.

In the Torrid Zone the sun is always high in the sky. It is generally hot, often moist, with low atmospheric pressure, muggy conditions and abundant rain and storms, some severe. Places close to the Equator get two summers per year (just one long summer) and very little winter. Further from the equator there are two seasons - “The Wet” and “The Dry”. The Torrid Zone produces many equatorial rain forests but also contains some deserts. Most people dream of vacations or retirement in the warm zone.

The Temperate Zone is cooler with more distinct seasons and sometimes severe droughts and floods. The granaries of the world lie within it. But the belt of sub-tropical high pressure zones also produces most of the world’s great deserts.

Letter to The Editor - The Forecasts will Fail, The Cold will Prevail, King Coal will be Crowned Again

The Forecasts will Fail,
The Cold will Prevail,
King Coal will be Crowned Again.

“Unless we stop using coal
And force green energy goals,
The ice sheets will melt
Big droughts will be felt
And islands will sink in a hole.”

But the sun refused to conform
And blizzards became the new norm.
Green energy failed
The warmists were nailed
And King Coal he grew strong in the storms.

March for Science? They’re Joking, Right? By Brian Simpson

     Incredible, isn’t it, the inconsistencies in the Left? With Trump illegally bombing Syria, supported by the media and the establishment, one would have thought that the anti-war Left would be screaming in rage. But, no, nothing much at all. Yet there are still marches to support climate change “action”  and global warming “science” by the Left and LGBT activists, although it is not clear why specifically global warming is a gender issue; doesn’t it affect everybody? 

     Elsewhere a protestor against global warming burnt himself to death:

Gas, Gas and More Gas: What is Wrong with this Picture? By Brian Simpson

     I teach maths and physics, so I did not notice this at first, but my friend who teaches year 12 chemistry pointed this out: 

     Have a close look at this photo of an allegedly gassed child being washed by a medico. Notice that no gloves or protective clothing are on the person washing. The gas is super-toxic, and the washer would be contaminated. Yet, he washers away as if it is Saturday night in the bathhouse. Something is very wrong with this picture. Last April Syria allegedly used sarin nerve gas, and the workers washed away without protective gear as well. Now, bets are being hedged that chlorine may be the gas instead:

Another Near Miss By Brian Simpson

     I don’t know about you but I often lay awake at night worrying about asteroid strikes. This madness happened when I was driving in the country on a hill, and a meteorite  passed about 100 feet or so in front of my car, then completely disintegrated in a shower of sparks the valley below.  I stopped the car, heart pounding because this was a near-miss from the cosmos, and these things are always dismissed by science types as too improbable to worry about. Sure. It almost happened.

“Just hours after being spotted, a 150-foot asteroid skimmed by Earth dangerously close. Astronomers spotted the asteroid on April 15, and not long later, passed by the globe at a distance of 119,500 miles. Astronomers named Asteroid 2018 GE3, was closest to Earth at around 2.41 a.m. ET on April 15 when it was spotted about 119,500 miles away. reported that that’s much closer than the moon, which orbits Earth at an average distance of 238,900 miles. GE3 also passed close to the moon later that morning on its journey around the sun. Asteroid 2018 GE3, an Apollo-type earth-crossing asteroid, was flying through space at 66,174 miles per hour (106,497 km/h)."

Get Ready for a Mad Max Apocalyptic World Down Your Street any Day Now! By John Steele

     What! Has the ALoR survivalist nutjob finally lost the last bit of sanity he had? Yes, most definitely. But, Consider:

“Australia is at risk of running out of fuel in the next few weeks due to the ongoing conflict in Syria. The escalating situation in the war-torn country threatens to cripple the supply chains that keep Australia going. While the International Energy Agency mandates that countries hold a stock reserve “equivalent to 90 days of net imports,” Australia only has 43 days worth of supply, the Australian reports. And that could be cut down even further if a global crisis threatens supply channels from places like the Middle East.

Letter to The Editor - Earth Day should Celebrate 'Engines and Electricity'

Most chapters of human history are defined by the tools and machines that were used.

In the Stone Age, the first tools were “green tools” – digging sticks, spears, boomerangs, bows and arrows made of wood; and axes, clubs, knives and grinders made of stone. These were all powered by human energy.

Mind Control Waves: Uncle Joe was Right After All By Uncle Len, with No Mind at All, but Who does Not Mind

     My Uncle Joe, who was a cranky old conspiracy nutter like me, often spoke about “mind control waves,’” used to control the “cretins,” pardon the French. Yet, for all of his madness, which runs in the family, it seems the old circus clown was spot on:

“The Washington State Fusion Center, a multi-agency counterterrorism center, accidentally released some puzzling documents this week: A dossier on the effects of remote mind control, a media report claims. Investigative journalism site Muckrock filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the center, looking for documents on Fusion’s investigations into white supremacist groups and far-left activists Antifa. Among the trove of documents they got back was a file titled “EM effects on human body.”

Beyond 1984 and Brave New World By Brian Simpson

     Global totalitarianism: are we there yet? How about, now? 

“Microsoft’s Bill Gates is backing a start-up that will provide ‘live and unfiltered’ high definition footage of every inch of Earth. The startup, EarthNow, plans to launch 500 satellites to cover Earth’s atmosphere in ‘Big Brother’ real-time video surveillance. As well as Gates, SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son and aerospace giant Airbus are also backing the project. The price of the project could run to $1 billion (£700m), although the value of the investment by the companies has not been disclosed. Applications could including tracking illegal fishing, monitoring the weather and tracking natural migrations globally.”

Has the North Korean Threat Really Gone? By James Reed

     Even the Alt Right ultra-paranoid sites, which I live on, have relaxed given the gestures of peace made by North Korea. After all, Kim has said that he wants peace, and he would not tell us a lie would he? In fact, the reality of the halting of nuclear tests may only be because of geophysical reasons:

“A study by Chinese geologists shows the mountain above North Korea’s main nuclear test site has collapsed under the stress of nuclear test explosions. This would render the site unsafe for further nuclear testing and necessitate monitoring for any leaking radiation. Is this perhaps the reason Kim Jong-Un has agreed to denuclearize North Korea? Perhaps, but of course, we’ll probably never know. The findings by the scientists at the University of Science and Technology of China may shed new light on North Korean President Kim Jong Un’s announcement that his country was ceasing its testing program. Nuclear explosions release enormous amounts of heat and energy, and the North’s largest test in September was believed early on to have rendered the site in northeastern North Korea unstable.

Letter to The Editor - Climate Lessons from King Canute

     Climate Aristocrats and Bureaucrats from 190 nations are meeting in Bonn, dreaming up rules “to prevent the globe from warming more than 2°C”. They have forgotten the lesson of mighty King Canute - he demonstrated that not even his great power could roll back the tide. Changing Climate is the natural state on Earth. Just 12,000 years ago the globe warmed quickly by over 10°C, the great ice sheets melted, and sea levels rose dramatically. Then it got cold again. Temperatures then fluctuated over a range of about 5°C during the Egyptian Warm period, the Roman Warm period, the Dark Ages Mini Ice Age, the Medieval Warm period and the grim times of the Little Ice Age.

     We are fortunate to live in the fruitful Modern Warm Era and global temperatures are probably near the top for this climate cycle. None of the warm eras were caused by man’s use of coal, gas, or petroleum or by bovine emissions. And none of the cold eras were triggered by mandating more windmills, taxing open fires or following emission targets set in Bonn, Brussels, Rio or Rome. This is their 48th Climate talk fest. It’s time the Climate Aristocrats admitted they cannot predict or control climate, they have harmed consumers (especially the world’s poorest people), and they are achieving nothing useful for the environment. Send them home now (on their zero-emission bicycles).
