Every teacher ought to see this video, courtesy of Bob Carter, followed by every High School kid.
Bob Carter shreds the myths
Even High School kids could follow this. Carter is an earth sciences professor at an Australian university so the talk does include some Australian references.
The Climate Lessons blogger says: ”This should be recommended viewing for every teacher in the world.
I also think there are seeds in this video for ideas that could be used as and when the ‘authorities’ get round to creating a decent curriculum on climate for schools. That might have to precede publishers willing to risk new books aimed at the young, and suitable for schools, with a more realistic and optimistic view of our climate system and our impact on it.
That might include the fact that we have never been in a stronger position than we are now to cope with climate variations. So parents might like to take the initiative and tell their children that. There will be troubles ahead from climate, just as there have been in the past. But we are more ready than ever before to handle them. Our abundant supplies of affordable energy are part of that.”
Getting rid of the Climate change department and the Carbon Tax will be a huge lift for Australia’s economy, trashed by Green Labor.
The biggest failure of Australia’s media has been towards the misreporting or outright avoidance of any mention of the AWU fraud and scandal where Comrade Gillard is concerned. Thankfully Australians are not as dumb as the mainstream media think.
Michael Smith has been all over it like a terrier, for it was Gillard herself who stopped both Smith and Glenn Milne from reporting it. Since then, a few others have joined in such as Hedley Thomas and Ben Fordham, much to Labor’s dismay.
When Gillard is charged, much of the Union movement involved, including Labor MP’s, in hiding the fraud, will either go with her, or become whistle-blowers. That’s their choice. They all know what happened. The next Government is contemplating a Judicial inquiry into the corrupt Unions, similar to the recent one in NSW.
Slater, Dodgy and Gordon, Gillard’s former partners, could find things too hot to touch soon as well.
climastrologists catastrophists lose their hockey stick propaganda in the latest study by Russian and Scandinavian scientists:
A new paper published in Quaternary Research reconstructs temperatures over the past 10,000 years in the Russian Subarctic, and finds temperatures were about 1C higher than the present during the Holocene Climate Optimum ~8,000 years ago. The authors also find a linear non-hockey-stick increase in temperature over the past 3,000 years to the present-day. [...]

Australia is one of the biggest exporters of iron in the world, the majority of it coming from the Pilbara region, with some of the biggest trains out there. The aim is to be China’s top supplier for years to come.
|The China story|
|22 May 2013 – China has managed to keep its daily crude steel output in excess of 2 million tonnes since the middle of February.|
The Kimberley has also been a high quality iron exporter from islands near Cape Leveque, where mining has been on and off for decades.
The latest Kimberley Iron ore comes from near Wyndham, where quadruple road trains hit the highway every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day for nearly 200 km trip to the Port at Wyndham. The Prime movers are computer controlled to attack the many hills and crests at optimum speeds and conditions.
The whining from President Obama has disturbed me so much over the years, the instant he is on TV the mute button is hit. Now I’m starting to get dizzy, the swinging head from side to side to read the teleprompter, reminds me of the pendulum clocks swinging the weight side to side. HEH: I knew Richard Nixon, Richard Nixon was a friend of mine, and you, Barack, are no Richard Nixon.
The President is so artificial, I see him as a joke, but a dangerous joke, what with IRS, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, AP wiretaps and FBI investigating journalists, doing their worst.

Just as well things are better in Australia, oops, no, this Prime Minister is under investigation by the police and the Unions are under investigation too. Larry Pickering puts across Australia’s position better than anyone:
What is it about Socialist leaders. Both have done their best to destroy the credibility of Science too. Things are starting to change, governments and leaders are starting to unravel as the word gets out. Steven Goddard does his bit here: Climate Science Is In The Crapper
- No global warming for almost 17 years
- Temperatures running below Hansen’s zero emissions scenario C.
- Longest spell since the Civil War without a major hurricane hitting the US
- Grover Cleveland’s presidency saw 26 hurricanes hit the US, compared to Barack Obama with 3 hurricanes.
- Strong to violent tornadoes have been on the decline for 40 years
- 100 years since the hottest temperature was recorded on Earth
- Prior to data tampering, no US warming for 90 years
- Global sea ice area is above normal
- Arctic sea ice area is normal
- Cold season snowfall has been rising and is at record levels in recent years.
- Sea level rise rates have been steady for over a century.
Nothing they forecast has come true. All they have left are busted theories, tampered NOAA and GISS data, and fraudulent John Cook surveys.
It is pathetic. And Obama’s teleprompter can’t stop talking about it.
Investigate, investigate, the calls came. First, they came for the journalists from Associated Press. Then they came for Fox News. Next, they ‘come for you’. This is going to be a lawyer’s dream: Obama‘s Enemies List

The Government are now stealing people’s savings, Sick pensioner finds Wayne Swan needs his $22,000 life savings.
Bank accounts are often unused for long periods, particularly when parents and grand parents save for children’s futures. These acts by those in charge are unethical and immoral, but then this is Labor all over, isn’t it.
Tim Flannery’s ‘permanent drought’ brings billions, if not trillions of dollars worth of rain from the tropical North West to the rest of Australia’s farmers and the outback deserts. Waters off Broome were a couple of degrees higher than average, Broome receiving over 5 inches of fabulous dry season rain, the highest May for 16 years. More warming please:
Big floods not so bad after all
Greenies regularly hail floods and droughts as unmitigated disasters – ignoring their place in natural climate cycles. One example of a positive outcome from an extreme weather event below
THE devastating 2011 floods have given farmers a huge boost with many drought-hit groundwater supplies completely refilled.
Queensland University of Technology researcher Matthias Raiber has found the Lockyer Valley, often referred to as Brisbane’s food bowl, has benefited enormously with water supplies having recovered by an average 70 per cent.
Dr Raiber, from the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training, said water quality had improved markedly on pre-flood conditions which had seen such a grim situation that farmers were drawing water that was so salty it stopped production of some crops.
The Lockyer Valley produced $230 million in agricultural products in 2010-11.
Dr Raiber said the importance of groundwater was expected to increase in coming decades because rainfall patterns were tipped to become less predictable. He said this would impact on Australia’s meagre surface supplies, which were stressed due to population growth, industry, agriculture and evaporation.
Researchers are trying to determine the extent of groundwater, which will help governments work out how much water can be drawn by irrigators.
Centre director Craig Simmons said most countries did not know how much groundwater they had or how long it took to recharge, which meant the resource could not be properly managed.
In other research, the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility has found that most people whose homes were impacted by the 2011 floods did not intend to make changes to reduce vulnerability to future floods.
Lead author Deanne Bird said many residents made general improvements, such as installing their dream kitchen, rather than making their home more flood resilient.
“We saw communities getting on with their lives and largely driving their recovery with stoic endurance.
“This does not necessarily translate to adaptation to future events but it does reflect strong resilience in the community,” Dr Bird said.
Sue Gordon, who runs the Gordon Country camp ground and cabins, in the Goomburra Valley on the Darling Downs said her property was flooded in 2011 and then earlier again this year but there was little that could be done to flood proof it.
“We lost kilometres of fencing,” she said. “We’d only just had it repaired and we were hit again. What can you do? We’ve got cattle.”
Ms Gordon said tourism businesses were severely damaged post floods by customers’ perceptions. ”We got almost no bookings due to the belief we were not operating due to damage,” she said.
