Re: NASA Study Indicates Antarctica is Gaining More Ice Than It's Losing -

I mentioned above Bob Brown and all his followers going in petrol/diesel to protest the Adani coal mine. Bob use to be the leader of The Greens.

The trip they made in distance would be like going from the bottom of Florida to New York.

Now these dills are on about the Great Barrier Reef. However, they got a bit of a shock as they were thinking the mine was on the coast. It is 200 miles inland. Let me tell you that any place in Australia that is 200 miles from the coast is in the middle of nowhere

University dumps professor who found polar bears thriving despite climate change

Quote:
Ms. Crockford accused officials at the Canadian university of bowing to “outside pressure,” the result of her research showing that polar bear populations are stable and even thriving, not plummeting as a result of shrinking Arctic sea ice, defying claims of the climate change movement.
Quote:
Marc Morano, author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change,” said situations like Ms. Crockford’s have become “all too common in the climate debate.”

Quote:
“Put it this way: religion, race, evolution, gender, indigenous peoples, nuclear power, polar bears, deforestation. … Any views on these topics that don’t fall in line with the ‘consensus’ are taboo,” Mr. van Kooten said in an email. “Think the extent to which free speech has been banned from campuses across much of the West in the name of political correctness.”

The point is the "Left" controls the narrative, and the schools.

If they want to teach your children the moon walk was faked in a Hollywood studio, then that becomes the new science.

I have thought for a long time that a lot of what happens to day (including windmills and solar panels) relates to massive immigration and from countries where the culture is very different.

In short, the nanny state where everyone loves everyone etc. is create an environment to avoid problems on the street that the immigration would cause.

Even windmills and solar panels have a sort of soft edge less aggressive thing about them than coal fired stuff.

I am a smoker and have a lot to do with the demonising of smoking. It is unreal in Australia. While women smoke it is still very much thought of as male thing. You had the Marlboro Man but never the Marlboro woman. A tobacco in Australia called White Ox is the strongest you can get from an ordinary suburban tobacconist or corner shop. I smoke a tobacco that is similar but much stronger. A few weeks ago I rolled one for a woman neighbour and when she drew back she nearly died However, I found her comment interesting as she said "I thought White Ox was bad but that stuff is a real killer and like White Ox is for men only"

Two large guns/hunting forums I have been on since they started in 1998 let you see changes in younger people. Younger people have grown up with all this bullshit. I mention the gun forums because there is no doubt we shooters tend to be in the red neck department but the younger shooter is quite different, sort of a more pacifist softer creature. If 10 or 15 years ago you posted on a guns forum that you supported same sex marriage you would probably have been banned.

Example of the hypocrisy of those promoting climate change continue to be exposed. This raises a serious concern. Why should anyone believe the claimed data supporting climate change if those pushing so-called climate change are not willing to adjust their lifestyle in response to that data?

Private flight spending soars in Democratic presidential race

Quote:
"Topping the spending list was former Vice President Joe Biden, who dropped about $924,000 on private air travel in the period between July 1 and Sept. 30, campaign finance reports show. That’s more than three times as much as the $256,000 he spent in the second quarter."
Quote:
"The Democratic primary field’s leading progressives, Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), also saw their private air travel spending swell in the three-month fundraising period. Sanders’s spending rose from $18,000 in the second quarter to more than $360,000 in the third. Meanwhile, Warren’s spending jumped from just under $34,000 to more than $132,000".
All the Democratic candidates have endorsed actions to reduce carbon emissions, but then ignore making actual commitments to live by the rules they intend to propose. Essentially, regular citizens would be forced by Democrats should they win to alter their lifestyles to meet environmental goals, but those making the rules would be exempt.
