lunacy in play …

We’re all gunna drown or overheat or whatever the latest warmist stupidity is. The latest is that pearls are next to suffer!

I have some relevant comments over there. Then this from a Broome local Green nut:

"Announcing the official Broome People's Climate March call to action."
Politicians and Associates discussing Climate Change

Announcing the official Broome People’s Climate March call to action.

I wont name and shame, as useful nutty information will be cut off.  Looks like lunatics at play.

 That’s like our council going out past the Mangroves at low tide for a meeting. Dumb. No sea level rise in a 100 years. Just like that underwater Maldives comedy image a couple of years ago.

This was several decades ago just a bit further up into Broome at high King tides:

Chinatown in King Tide – this is across from where the new Coles building is now – Short Street! … 1960’s.

One block away 2011 (to the right of these buildings) are pearl lugger repair sheds and slipway. I used to work in that shed.:

The last few years haven’t reached this level.

About Tom Harley

Amateur ecologist and horticulturalist and CEO of Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Inc. (Tom Harley) Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Incorporated Kimberley Environmental Horticulture (KEH) is a small group of committed individuals who promote the use of indigenous plants for the landscaping of parks and gardens. Rehabilitation of Kimberley coast, bushland and pastoral regions are also high on our agenda. This includes planting seedlings, weed control, damage from erosion or any other environmental matter that comes to our attention. We come from all walks of life, from Professionals and Trades oriented occupations, Pensioners and Students, Public Servants and the Unemployed. We have a community plant nursery where we trial many old and new species, with a view to incorporating these into our landscaping trials. Our labour force are mainly volunteers, but with considerable help from the 'work for the dole' program, Indigenous Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) groups and the Ministry of Justice, with their community work orders; in this way we manage to train many people in the horticultural skills needed for indigenous plant growing. We constantly undertake field trips that cover seed and plant collection in the Kimberley. Networking around the Kimberley region and the east Pilbara is a necessary part of promoting our activities. We consult on a range of Environmental and Landscaping matters that deal with our region. Our activities involve improving Broome's residential streetscapes by including 'waterwise' priciples in planting out nature strips. Sustainable environmental horticulture is practised by members of our group. We use existing vegetation as the backbone of any plantings, using these species to advantage when planning to develop tree forms or orchards. The Broome region is sensitive to development. Subsequently many weed species have become dominant in and around developed areas. The use and movement of heavy machinery is the biggest single cause of environmental degradation. We dont live in a 'Tropical Paradise' but on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. The plants that survive best here, grow in well-drained pindan sand, and are found from the Dampier Peninsular southward to where average rainfall is below 600mm. When we use rainforest species, detail is important when planting, water catchment, sunlight and understorey species are all considered. The use of recycled 'grey' water is an advantage here as well as treated waste-water, although many local species do not fare well with nutrients from this source. We use waterwise planting methods which include harvesting asmuch rainwater as possible, with swales designed to hold up to 200 litres, to help recharge the local groundwater aquifer. There has been a serious decline in this aquifer over the last few years. With the fast expansion of the Broome peninsular, more and more land is being covered by concrete, iron and bitumen so that much less water is available to replenish the aquifer, allowing the salt content to become significantly higher. The small Broome Peninsular is on the south-western corner of the Dampier Peninsular (bound by Broome, Derby and Cape Leveque at the northern tip). Compaction by vehicles also inhibits water retention due to the content of our local pindan sand, hard as concrete in the dry, going to soft and sloppy mud after rain. None of us are botanists, inevitably we have got some names wrong, names changed, or have not gone to sub-species level. If you note a photo or description may be wrong, please e-mail to

      A Broome greenie, called Wade Freeman is the author of the pic, but I got it from a joint ‘friend’ who had shared it. Seems like you might be a good stalker like me, John! Actually far more lefties are my Facebook ‘friends’, where I get conffirmation
      that the Green Blob are ‘lunatics’, disguised as environmentalists.

    Are they waiting for the tide to come in Tom ? What show-ponies.

      There’s a local chapter of the Green Blob, anti-everything, that have conned many indigenous people into their No Gas campaign, I have tried to reason, argue with their agenda, shown them the science, but their ideology has them blinded, so they are a constant source of amusement, and regular pindan posts.
