Australian Politics Prime Minister Turnbull’s Green Scheme For Power

“All the more reason for conservatives to conclude it is better than Turnbull be defeated than let his hijacking of the Liberals succeed.”

Correct. I will most definitely not be voting for Turnbull and the Libs at the next election.

Miranda Devine on Malcolm Turnbull’s lean to the Greens:

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull

WHILE conservatives rip into each other over the Tony Abbott-Peta Credlin saga, they’re missing a looming disaster as Malcolm Turnbull quietly stitches up a power-sharing deal with the Greens that has the potential to remake Australia…

At the same time Liberal powerbroker Michael Kroger has been creeping around Victoria stitching up cynical preference deals with the Greens to deliver them Labor marginal seats, and Turnbull has been dithering over union-busting bills in case they offend the Greens, who owe much of their cash flow to unions.

The stage is being set for a July 2 double–dissolution election that will remake the Senate… Tempting though it may be to stop the likes of Jacqui Lambie and Glenn Lazarus holding the country to ransom, the alternative is far worse. Imagine a Senate controlled by…

Use of Fear to Silence Climate Skeptics Is An Assault On Reason

Watts Up With That?

Guest opinion: Dr. Tim Ball

global-warming-inquisition

Fear is the most powerful enemy of reason. Both fear and reasoning are essential to human survival, but the relationship between them is unbalanced. Reason may sometimes dissipate fear, but fear frequently shuts down reason. As Edmund Burke wrote in England 20 years before the American Revolution,” no passion so effectually robs the mind of all its powers of acting and reasoning past fear.”

Fear is aided and abetted by exaggeration, distortion, and falsehoods. Sadly, these exploitations litter history as people sought to control others and push a political or religious agenda. There appears to be a difference today as Farhad Manjoo identified in his book “True Enough: Learning to live in a Post-Fact Society”:

Facts no longer matter. We simply decide how we want to see the world and then go out and find experts and evidence to back our beliefs.

World’s Top Climate Experts Have No Clue What They Are Talking About

Real Science

In 1988, NASA’s top climate expert told Congress that the Midwest will face frequent episodes of very high temperatures and drought in the coming decades.

In fact, the exact opposite has occurred. The frequency of hot days has plummeted since 1988 in the midwest, and is down 80% since the 1930’s.

The Midwest has been getting progressively wetter, with almost no drought since Hansen made his forecast.

James Hansen is considered the world’s top climate scientist, and has no idea what he is talking about. It only gets worse as you go down the ladder.

A Warming Arctic Would Not Cause Increased Severe Weather or Temperature Extremes

Yet another ‘global warming’ scare proven to be just that – a scare.
What other ‘global warming’ catastrophic predictions, peddled by activist climate scientists are designed purely for fear-mongering and propaganda purposes.

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Chuck Wiese, Meteorologist, Weatherwise, Inc.

This essay is a critique Francis and Vavrus (2012), hereinafter FV (2012), by atmospheric scientists Jennifer Francis from Rutgers University and Steve Vavrus of the University of Wisconsin. Their paper can be downloaded here:

http://marine.rutgers.edu/~francis/pres/Francis_Vavrus_2012GL051000_pub.pdf

and an updated version here:

FV (2012) claims a measured decrease in the zonal or west to east wind component due to “arctic amplification” (AA) would increase jet stream meandering, increase the amplitude or “waviness” of the flow, and increase persistent long wave blocking patterns around the northern hemisphere. This, in turn, would increase severe weather, droughts, floods and temperature extremes.

To quote the authors directly:

“Two effects are identified that each contribute to a slower eastward progression of Rossby waves in the upper-level flow: 1) weakened zonal winds, and 2) increased wave amplitude. These effects are particularly evident in autumn and winter consistent with…
