frakking fraud activism …

Anti-frakking hystericals have failed to read and understand the science,  instead, insist on follow the fraudsters:

Anti-fracking activist sticks by industry “expert” who was proven to be a fraud

Oct 14, 2014 8:01 PM by Jazz Shaw

The local Kimberley anti-frakkers were recently humiliated when the oil company Buru Energy purchased the adjoining Kimberley Cattle Station, Yakka Munga, after being continually harrassed when entering indigenous owned station, Roebuck Plains. Another lost opportunity. Oil and gas has already been discovered.

Pentagon to unveil plan to deal with ‘urgent risk’ of climate change – May ‘require extensive rethinking of many aspects of the U.S. military’

Nuke the hurricanes instead. Tomahawk cruise missiles to hit tornadoes? Microwave the ice sheets. ISIS is done for. Bin Laden is dead, GM is alive. Ebola is ……

hot air and politics …

Labor’s second biggest mistake: a Carbon tax? (Update at bottom of post)

http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/carbon-price-on-bill-shortens-agenda-as-he-goes-to-electorate-20141010-1148xe.html#ixzz3FpYJjv76

That makes it easy to campaign against. You see, it hasn’t warmed, even with a lot of extra CO2 in the atmosphere, that is, except for that hot air found in cities where Bill Shorten and Co live.

For all GHCN stations in Australia, there is no net warming since 1880

… The biggest mistake is to cling to the crooked unions currently under investigation. Most Labor politicians are former Union officials or Union lawyers.

[...] It’s crime.

good for the roses …

Research on the effect of higher temperatures at night, discovers that pest insects suffer the most. Warmer nights are the result of urban growth or UHI. CO2 science: The Impacts of Hot Days with Night Warming on Small Insect Pests

[...] In describing their findings the four researchers report that night warming “reduced aphid survival under heat from 75% to 37% and depressed adult performance by up to 50%,” so that “overall,” as they write, “night warming exacerbated the detrimental effects of hot days on the intrinsic rate of population increase, which was predicted to drop by 30% when night-time minimum temperatures exceeded 20°C.”

The take-home message of this work is that although many average or mean temperature models predict increasing pest outbreaks in a warming world, the results of Zhao et al. suggest that “outbreaks of some species might decrease due to the effects of night warming on population dynamics.” But try getting a climate alarmist to admit that!

Warming, and higher levels of CO2, are beneficial to mankind. “But try getting a climate alarmist to admit that!”

Heh: Michael Crichton – Environmentalism as a Religion – Video
Ice Age Now

 Not much chance for aphids here in the tropics then, where 26C is the average summer minimum  … “which was predicted to drop by 30% when night-time minimum temperatures exceeded 20°C.”

Those ‘stubborn’ ‘climate alarmists’ just can’t get things right: Long-term Study of an Alpine Grassland: Stubbornly Coping with Climate Change (7 October 2014)
Alpine flora have a much greater ability to adapt to rising temperatures than climate models generally project, making predictions of their widespread decline and extinction highly unlikely…

Unfortunately, the cooling returns?

The aphids, too …
