Beautiful creatures?????????? 091

 

One of our largest ‘predators’ around the Kimberley, show little fear, can stand up and look into your car window with ease. According to my indigenous friends and colleagues, they are delicious.

banning frakking, New York style … termites still win

Not content with bans on sugary drinks and salt … it’s a religion, James, a crazy religion. Become a vegan supremacist anti-frakker, or else …

James Taylor does a dissection of Crazy Cuomo’s Fracking ban
Junk Science

look, a unicorn: Warmist conspiracy theory – Oil prices drop planned to sabotage climate treaty momentum: ‘Just as global warming gains international traction with treaties, targets and timetables – – the price of oil miraculously drops. A coincidence? I think not’

Taylor:

“Even if we suspend our common sense and take seriously the assertions of anti-fracking activists, settled science provides a definitive, testable verdict in fracking’s favor. Federal, state, and local government officials have conducted literally thousands of tests on water supplies near fracking sites and have never found a single instance of the fracking process causing groundwater pollution. That’s never. Not once. Nada. Nunca. Nein.

Skeptical readers need not take my word for it. Here are the words of none other than Lisa Jackson, hand-selected by President Obama to lead the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency during Obama’s first term in office: “I’m not aware of any proven case where the fracking process itself has affected water….”

More frakking please. The Facebook fascists will not change though, it’s a religion.

Pindanposts are to blame … extra CO2, no, credit, for a pindanpost is a termite mound.

what the Judge found …

What did the judge find? Drum roll:

So one former Labor prime minister had her renovations paid for with stolen money and did not tell the truth about it, and the man wanting to be the next Labor Prime Minister in all probability wanted it hushed up. So finds the royal commissioner.

And this is a story the ABC and many Canberra press gallery journalists refused for years to cover or take seriously.

Michael Smith is vindicated, and deserves an apology, from a lot of people.40159-6a0177444b0c2e970d01a511d377f1970c-pi e64dc-6a0177444b0c2e970d01a511b6dc8f970c-pi4e5fe-6a0177444b0c2e970d01a3fceaa35a970b-piMichael Smith and Bob Kernohan pictured. I’d suggest Bob should be compensated, and Smithy should sue.

climate religion defined …

From the land of flakes, fruit and nuts, some sanity:

‘Global-warming true believers are in denial’ – Warmists believe the ‘science has spoken’

Yes, someone (Debra Saunders) at the SF Chronicle, in a rare moment of clarity.

I have a theory as to why Americans don’t worry all that much about global warming: High-profile purveyors of climate change don’t push for reductions in greenhouse gases so much as focus on berating people who do not agree with their opinions. They call themselves champions of “the science” — yet focus on ideology more than tangible results.

Their language is downright evangelical. […]

media’s biggest fail …

Extraordinary sacrifices at their ABC:

The terrible injustice continues:

He said other reporters who had worked for more than 10 hours covering the Martin Place siege were also targeted for redundancy.

More than 10 hours! What extraordinary dedication. Why, some of them may have even missed their aftrenoon yoga classes.

Shaking my head … and a missed story in the SMH. Continue reading

big milestone for a Broome blog achieved … 200,000

A real milestone reached today …

200,000 page views.

Now, 200,027 views

Nearly 1,200 followers I thank especially, and hope to live up to your trust.

It’s taken … 7,824 Posts

While some of my favorite blogs get this in a day, or a week or a month, I am still ecstatic to get this far from a little ‘ole country town like Broome.

Thanks to all those who come here to see pindanpost, I will try to keep up the posts though I do have a big work load in helping get the indigenous business I consult for on a sound footing. Things have been proceeding along at a great pace, with yet another maintenance contract of a new public park starting this week.

A new playground is a feature, and all trees and shrubs are indigenous to the Kimberley, and supplied by our nursery. Other pics show our workers ‘doing it tough, a number of them are part of doing ‘Work for the Dole’ as a preliminary to jobs becoming available as the business expands.DSC01091 DSC01092 ??????????????????????????????? phone1 044 ??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

ABC fails the journalism test … losers?

I hate having to tell ‘their’ ABC, but guys, it hasn’t warmed in 20 years (worst luck, I wish it would). That means you have little idea what you are talking about, just believe everything you are told if it fits the agenda. Why don’t you ask a few simple questions?

the Port of Broome …

The Port of Broome is surrounded by a diverse and spectacular environment, despite attempts over the years to develop the area into a large industrial set-up. There are already inroads from the oil and gas sector to expand, including a recent amount of illegal land clearing.

Here are a few images from the area, including some dinosaur footprints, click to enlarge …
