tropical autumn flowers …

The current wet season downpours have slowed to a trickle, enabling a mass of ground covers and herbs to set flowers. Quite a wonderland, click to enlarge.

winter weather, hacked by russians …

Weather satellite scientist mocks the global warmers in this excellent article on his website:

[…] Global warming theory is in fact so malleable that it predicts anything. More cold, less cold. More snow, less snow.

What a powerful theory.

And what’s even more amazing is that climate change can be averted by just increasing your taxes. […]

Check it out, it’s devastating for alarmists. Dr Spencer followed that with this even better mockery: The Russians Hacked our Winter Weather

Now that winter has officially ended, I thought it would be useful to address the central role that Russia played in ending California’s drought, as well as in the unusually warm conditions over the eastern U.S. this past winter.

Dr Spencer, half of the Spencer/Christy UAH satellite weather team, is on a roll, tops it off with this more serious piece.

ultimate reality entertainment like no other …

This has to be ‘Ultimate Reality’ Entertainment, even better than what Hollywood could have made up. Not even Le Carre could write a thriller this compelling*. “The West Wing”, “Dallas” and “Big Brother” pale into comparison with today’s real life show going on around Washington since Donald Trump told everyone he was running for President.

The media laughed their heads off. Secretary Clinton started counting the ways of sucking up more money for the Clinton Fraud Foundation with partners in Crime Bill and Chelsea, once getting the keys to the bank again. Today, President Trump has a big smile on his face, as his plotters are getting rapidly unraveled.

The smile just got wiped off the NYT’s face!

The NYT struggles to fight off Trump’s use of that NYT headline “Wiretapped data used in inquiry of Trump aides.” I recommend reading this closely […]

There’s a new episode every hour on Fox News**.

Snippets:

*The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward warned on Wednesday that there are people from the Obama administration who could be facing criminal charges for unmasking the names of Trump transition team members from surveillance of foreign officials. […]

**Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week, a source told Fox News. […]

In the meantime, the Democrat “opposition” is stuck with Chief Benefactor’s “messianic fantasies”, funding selected ‘Resistance’: […]

Soros is well-known for bankrolling various left-wing activist groups and causes like Black Lives Matter, and was one of the biggest financial backers of Hillary Clinton’s unsuccessful presidential campaign.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Soros once wrote that he considers himself “some kind of god” with “messianic fantasies.”

His personal motto, according to that same article, is: “If I spend enough, I will make it right.”

The Democrats really are the party of donkeys. Pass the popcorn.

mapping dinosaur trackways … new paper

Dr Steve Salisbury and his group of scientists, students have spent weeks studying Broome’s dinosaur footprints in Cretaceous sandstone around many of Broome’s beaches. The result is this paper published today.

It explains many of the new technologies of LIDAR and drones used in fossil footprint research, where more than 20 species have been found along the Broome and Dampier Peninsula shoreline so far.

Kimberley beaches …

The most isolated of all Kimberley beaches is to the North East of the region facing Cambridge Gulf. Big tides and cyclonic weather can cause large changes from one year to the next, especially near the mouth of the Berkeley River, where sandy beaches spread to the north, and rocky cliffs, mountains and islands to the south. Berkeley River Lodge is just near the river’s mouth.

No access to these beaches by road, click to enlarge.

the rugged north-east Kimberley …

The West side of Cambridge Gulf, in Western Australian Kimberley’s north east is sparsely populated, due to the rugged country that lies there. The opposite side of the Gulf are the plains of the Ord River Irrigation area surrounding Kununurra.

vindicating the use of Roundup …

Monsanto manufactured Roundup is, at last, found to be safe from causing cancer, the latest science report published, sort of, by the EU.

The EU (Sort Of) Vindicates Monsanto, Says Roundup Ingredient Doesn’t Cause Cancer

A European scientific council has determined glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto Co.’s weed killer Roundup, should not be classified as a cancer-causing substance.The European Chemical Agency (ECHA), which regulates chemicals on the market in Europe, considered numerous scientific studies in a global battle between agri-chemical companies, organic activists and policymakers.

“This conclusion was based both on the human evidence and the weight of the evidence of all the animal studies reviewed,” Tim Bowmer, chairman of ECHA’s Committee for Risk Assessment, told reporters after the decision Wednesday, according to Reuters.

The ECHA found that “the available scientific evidence did not meet the criteria to classify glyphosate as a carcinogen,” the group said in a press release. The group still classifies glyphosate as “a substance causing serious eye damage and being toxic to aquatic life with long-lasting effects,” according to the statement.

After having used Roundup and watched it’s use over 40 years, this is not a surprise. What is a surprise is that the Green Blob’s nonsense over the past decade has finally been trashed by science.

The use of Roundup and GMO has saved the world from toxic chemical weed killers used on millions of hectares, that were prominent in the 60s and 70s. These chemicals were the cause of death of many farmers before their time.

Now, off to kill some weeds.

climate is goosed …

Cook for Climate, the latest call for cash by the Green Blob. Yet another propaganda effort to part the ill-informed from their dole cheque, parliamentary salary or university stipend.

Tom, it’s time to cook for climate change!

Join The Wilderness Society’s first ever foodie fundraiser! What’s it Worth is this weekend, so prepare a meal and get your friends and family together to help fight climate change from your kitchen table. Ask them to pay whatever they think the meal OR protecting climate is worth! Easy!

Tom, REGISTER NOW

Not very likely, but if you are that way inclined, I have a cheap bridge to sell to these ‘geese’.

Our food is directly impacted by rising temperatures and changing climate. Join people from all across the country as they raise money to help The Wilderness Society fight for a safe climate future for all Australians.

I only hope the temperatures keep rising, I detest the cold. Our food is impacted all right. During our, er, supposed ‘hottest year’, a record crop yield across Australia. Impacted, in the right way.

The Wilderness Society, more irrelevant than ever. Someone ought to give them the bad news, it’s all over for the gravy train!
