    Climate Crisis Causes Extinction Of Thursdays – PANIC!

      The name Thurday is derived from Old English þunresdæg and Middle English Thuresday (with loss of -n-, first in northern dialects, from influence of Old Norse Þórsdagr) meaning “Thor’s Day”. It was named after the Norse god Thor.

      Thor is a Climate God – we should not upset the Climate Gods who might bring more “Extreme Weather”.

      Thor (from Old Norse: Þórr) is a prominent god in Germanic paganism. In Norse mythology, he is a hammer-wielding god associated with lightning, thunder, storms, sacred groves and trees, strength, the protection of humankind, hallowing, and fertility.

        The thunder god went for a ride
        Upon his favorite filly.
        “I’m Thor!” he cried
        The horse replied
        “You forgot your thaddle, thilly”.

    FWIW – doesn’t matter what day

    “Note the deafening silence from mainstream US news media about these admissions”

    “Via anecdotal data and reports, we’ve been aware for years that the COVID-19 vaccines were causing serious harm to many of those who took them. It’s been said that they’re responsible for many deaths, possibly more than the disease itself, and fringe commenters have even alleged that they were a deliberate attempt to reduce the world’s population. Politicians and the mainstream media have debunked such talk, but they’ve never actually addressed the existing data head-on and examined it impartially.”

    “Two recent reports from the UK and Japan, may signal the breaking of the ice over that. ”

      Good article, which I read after Ken’s comment. So often I don’t follow Kim’s link as it doesn’t specify whether it’s an article or a video and I kept finding videos. We limit these as we are pensioners with a limited wifi allowance.
      Please Kim, specify if something is a video! And how long it lasts.

    New research shows that most emissions are produced on Thursdays so a multi-billion $ project was established to find a way to combat this. After several years of investigation and millions of hours using model simulations, the solution was found: we will henceforth go straight from Wednesday to Friday, omitting Thursdays entirely.

      I have formed a “Save Thurday” protest group and have invided Greta Thunberg to be our patron.

      Ancient cultures had different “week” lengths, including ten in Egypt and an eight-day week for Etruscans. The Etruscan week was adopted by the ancient Romans, but they later moved to a seven-day week, which had spread across Western Asia and the Eastern Mediterranean due to the influence of the Christian seven-day week, which is rooted in the Jewish seven-day week. In 321 CE, Emperor Constantine the Great officially decreed a seven-day week in the Roman Empire, including making Sunday a public holiday. This later spread across Europe, then the rest of the world.

        I thought so too. But the Jews inherited it from their time in captivity in Babylon and much more like the story of the great flood. The 7 comes supposedly from the seven heavenly bodies, the sun, the moon and the five visible planets but that is likely just guesswork.

        And the Romans had two week lengths, 7 days and 9 days. The 9 day week was an 8 day week with an additional day for market day.

        The seven days likely dominated after Constantine made the Jewish religion, Christianity the state religion.

        Some languages just number the days, like Russian and have a bet each way on Saturday and Sunday as Saboota (Sabbath) and Vaskrysenya (Christ is risen). Like most slavic countries thanks to the Khazarian conversion, up to 40% of the population was Jewish from which we get Azkenazi. Russian archeologists are now excavating the city of Itil next to Astrakhan on the Volga(which used to be called the Itil). Under Stalin all this was removed from history.

          And of course Napoleon digitized the week for 12 years from 1793 to 1805. But people missed their weekends too much. And the days were

          primidi (first day)
          duodi (second day)
          tridi (third day)
          quartidi (fourth day)
          quintidi (fifth day)
          sextidi (sixth day)
          septidi (seventh day)
          octidi (eighth day)
          nonidi (ninth day)
          décadi (tenth day)

          All to remove religious influences, not just Christian but all. The stripping and destruction of churches, icons and religion in the French revolution was extraordinary. Even carved images on villas were defaced, as with Zwingli in Switzerland. The iconoclasts. By the time of Victor Hugo, Notre Dame de Paris was in ruins with cows grazing inside.

        Victoria housing crisis: Cost of building a new home jumps $25,000 overnight

        Since May 1 any new home submitted for planning approvals has been required to be seven-star energy efficient, typically requiring better orientation for sunlight, more double-glazing, insulation and often solar panels or more efficient appliances.

        The Housing Industry Association had believed the typical increase would be just $10,000, but following member consultation in the wake of the new rules coming into force has now estimated that figure is a minimum and that for most new homes the increase is closer to $25,000 — and higher for some builds.

        Australian Bureau of Statistics data shows the cost of building a new house in Victoria rose $16,000 in the 12 months to March as a result of material and trades shortages.

        Buyers are now paying more than $115,000 extra for a typical build compared to the same time in 2020.

        Then there is the additional cost of electricity and a ban on gas connections!

        A tent in a park is looking like the future for more of the good citizens in the People’s Republic of Victoriastan where the socialist goverment takes its lead from the soclist state of California .

        Los Angeles and in general Los Angeles County is home to many encampments, which are heavily based in Downtown Los Angeles, Fashion District, Hollywood, Skid Row, Venice Beach, and Westlake. An estimated 40,000 homeless live in L.A. and up to 70,000 countywide.

    FWIW – re Trump’s “trial”

    “Trump’s Trial Violated Due Process

    He was denied notice of the charges, meaningful opportunity to respond, and proof of all elements.”

    “Whether you love, hate or merely tolerate Donald Trump, you should care about due process, which is fundamental to the rule of law. New York’s trial of Mr. Trump violated basic due-process principles.”

      IS ‘OPERATION DUMP JOE’ BACK ON?

      Last fall we noted a number of news features in the mainstream media such as the New York Times gingerly noting Biden’s “age issue.”

      But then his hopped-up performance at the State of the Union speech in March (I think we now can intuit what happened to Hunter’s White House stash) seemed to put to rest the senility problem.

      But it has come back with a vengeance. The Wall Street Journal today has the most brutal take yet on the failing mind of Biden in “Behind Closed Doors, Biden Shows Signs of Slipping.” Here’s the opening:

      When President Biden met with congressional leaders in the West Wing in January to negotiate a Ukraine funding deal, he spoke so softly at times that some participants struggled to hear him, according to five people familiar with the meeting. He read from notes to make obvious points, paused for extended periods and sometimes closed his eyes for so long that some in the room wondered whether he had tuned out.

      In a February one-on-one chat in the Oval Office with House Speaker Mike Johnson, the president said a recent policy change by his administration that jeopardizes some big energy projects was just a study, according to six people told at the time about what Johnson said had happened. Johnson worried the president’s memory had slipped about the details of his own policy.

      Last year, when Biden was negotiating with House Republicans to lift the debt ceiling, his demeanor and command of the details seemed to shift from one day to the next, according to then-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and two others familiar with the talks. On some days, he had loose and spontaneous exchanges with Republicans, and on others he mumbled and appeared to rely on notes.

      “I used to meet with him when he was vice president. I’d go to his house,” McCarthy said in an interview. “He’s not the same person.”

      But more interesting than these details is the extent to which the White House attempted to do damage control on this story as the Journal went about reporting it:

        Joe Biden’s senility freaks out DC just as much as it does everyone else

        By Post Editorial Board

        A worrying new Wall Street Journal report confirms that Joe Biden’s stumbling, fumbling and bumbling have not only unnerved America — they’ve undermined faith in him across the corridors of power in DC.

        That’s among GOPers and Dems alike, though lefty journos are mid-meltdown that the Journal would dare to quote Republicans for the story, as if they don’t deserve to comment on the obvious decline of the most powerful man in the world.

        But national Democrats and their proxies are circling the wagons for good reason: Apparently, Geriatric Joe’s gotten so mentally feeble he needs the equivalent of cue cards to handle meetings.

        Like one on Ukraine funding, when he took 10 minutes to circumnavigate the room and then started things off by reading out kindergarten-obvious points.

        The scene was so bad one participant said, “You couldn’t be there and not feel uncomfortable.”

        Oof.

        OK, I’m generally a Trumpist but wonder HOW the dems could switch out Biden and maintain any shred of credibility.

        Surely the believers will remember that they were being told by Dr Jill, the “ladies” of The View and hundreds of others that he is still sharp as a tack. Won’t they wake up that they have been gas-lit and start asking other awkward questions?

        Don’t answer: Of course they won’t.

          Yes, but that’s party loyalty. Once given an alternative, any alternative, they would drop him. And they have the numbers to win because elections are decided by the swinging voters, the blacks and the hispanics. Which is why the Democrats are flooding the country with aliens. But they are packing the big cities which are already deep blue.

          Besides, it is not just Biden but Kamala. At Biden’s rate of collapse, Kamala would be US President soon and Joe in a home.

          But Obama and Clinton might have much more trouble controlling headstrong cackling Kamala than geriatric pliable and endlessly compromised Biden. I believe Robert F. Kennedy is positioning himself in the middle for this reason and a deal could be done. Older voters still remember Camelot. And Kennedy is an environmental lawyer. Perfect for the Green vote. Green is saving the planet.

            He has just come out with a documentary called Recovering America, its about addiction and recovery, featuring Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

            If it gets traction in the MSM, then RFK would be counted as a worthwhile nominee. Along with the Camelot aspect, he might become a populist like Donald.

    FWIW

    “So About Fauci *”
    [snip]

    The worst part of the Fauci saga was that he was known to do this sort of shit since decades earlier and got away with it. I’m speaking of the AIDS years in which he deliberately blocked the use of Bactrim in AIDS patients (remember, at the time AIDS was a terminal condition) claiming “we didn’t have enough information” on its risks and benefits. The facts are that we knew it worked to prevent PCP, a deadly pneumonia, in immune-compromised people because in the 1970s we discovered that and it changed the face of leukemia — patients routinely were killed by PCP during their treatment as their immune system was trashed by the drugs. Prophylaxis with Bactrim stopped that and made a huge difference in leukemia mortality.”

    Men ain’t what they used to be…

    “When you’ve finished checking your FakeNews? app for the veracity of the Victorian Federal Government’s appointment of a Parliamentary Secretary to judge men’s behaviour you might still be in a disbelieving state of mind.
    ‘Tim Richardson will become Parliamentary Secretary for Men’s Behaviour Change, continuing the Allan Labor Government’s priority to make Victoria a safer place for women and children ….this is the first position of its kind in Australia – and will focus largely on the influence the internet and social media have on boys’ and men’s attitudes towards women and building respectful relationships.’

    part of an overall plan-

    “The TV ad for the bank features a fit guy who is undeniably a bit of a babe. We see him getting long-winded investment advice, self-importantly delivered by a bunch of white people who, we are meant to understand, don’t have a clue. The babe is too smart to listen to these bores and the final shot sees him, the ethnically diverse person, getting good advice from a female Asian bank employee.”

    all the way down to-

    “The bloke of today doesn’t really merit the appellation of ‘bloke’ as creatives have now cast him as the clueless ditherer. Notably, chaps, even young ones, have dreary weekends, fail to spot good employment opportunities, don’t ask the right questions at open homes and are relegated to the mindless hammering in of tent pegs while the female partner chats to the screen about a technical gadget. Even when the male has a main – but slightly larky- role to promote X, Y or Z, he will often be played by that much maligned species, the ginga, with ineffectual facial hair and unremarkable physique. It is only a couple of steps from buffoon to outsider to perp.”

    I am amazed that Dutton and Albanese have joined forces to trash Bandt and the Greens. And it’s working! They are both wedging him as an anti Semite, which is transparently true. Like all communists and fascists, or as they call themselves, socialists. Any groups being successful by hard work and talent are anaethema to socialists.

    But Albanese is looking down the barrel of being a failed PM in a one term government while utterly dependent on the Green and Teal vote. And Bandt has been throwing his tiny weight around as the would be dictator he is. But here they can wedge him and drive the bien pensant Greens away with the valid accusation that the Greens are solidly Anti Semites. This will work for the Teals too. Greens and Teals want to save the world not exterminate the Jews. Especially the 3% of Melbournians who are Jewish. Bandt has nailed his colours to the mast. Silly move.

    It’s a risky strategy for Alabanese but he was losing anyway and he wants to lose his way, not playing second fiddle to the little Green dictator. It’s Trotsky vs Lenin. Again. Now if he can just get Wong under control.

      It’s odd and utterly illogical. Albanese is not proposing putting windmills in these idyllic locations. Why would Dutton want to site a nuclear reactor at a popular beach? Why not on top of a mountain in a National Park? Or in the ocean? Why not next to a coal power station? Or an aluminum refinery?

      Albanese has pretty much said nuclear reactors have to be right next to their clients while windmills can be anywhere in the country, not matter what the massive additional cost in transmission. That’s not what the AEMO are saying.

      • #
        Graeme#4

        Dutton clearly stated that the best place to site large nuclear power stations was on the locations of either existing or shut-down coal power stations. No doubt Labor are attempting to twist those words into something quite different.
        Recently it was pointed out that Albanese’s other claims about nuclear were quite wrong, including the one where he claimed Italy has shut down its nuclear, ignoring the fact that Italy now plans to build new nuclear.

    Wall Street Admits The Biggest Economic Shocker: All Jobs In The Past Year Have Gone To Illegal Aliens

    For much of the past year we had been pounding the table on two very simple facts: not only has the US labor market been appallingly weak, with most of the jobs “gained” in 2023 and meant to signal how strong the Biden “recovery” has been, about to be revised away (as first the Philly Fed and now Bloomberg both admit), but more shockingly, all the job growth in the past few years has gone to illegal aliens.

    We first pointed this out more than a year ago, and since then we have routinely repeated – again, again, and again – yet even though we made it abundantly clear what was happening…

    Stunning statistic: there has been ZERO INCREASE in jobs for native-born workers in over five years, since July 2018!

      I read the preamble to the link and disagree; the biggest red flag was the short time that the vax came to market. For decades we have been told that new vaccinations commonly take at least five years or longer to come to market because of the rigorous safety protocols of stage 1 to 4/5 testing. I think they did the vax in about 23 weeks. The credibility went down hill from there. Big money supposedly warp speeded the process, but what about the stage testing, how do you warp speed that for a novel vaccine ?. Then came the safe and effective global narrative. But what about existing drug protocols like ivermectin, what! thats horse dewormer nonsense, its not safe for people. But its been used effectively on millions of people with a high degree of safety.? The vax narrative just got less credible at every explanation.

      I’ve had many vaccinations over the years, so I’m no ‘antivaxxer’. I simply felt uneasy upon hearing that the Covid vax would use totally new, untested (as in no other medication had used it) called ‘mRNA’ which, to me, sounded rather like ‘DNA’. Still not particularly worried, just curious, I started to look into it. Almost straight away, I became aware that we knew almost nothing about its medium – long term effects and so decided to wait a while. Well that wait was enough for all kinds of red lights to start going off, such as the very clear attempts to shut down any debate – or even questions. Soon after, I found Dr. John Campbell’s YouTube channel and so commenced a long road of discovery, alongside which vax mandates were introduced, convincing me more than anything else that we weren’t being told the truth.

      I’m still here and, like millions of others, I don’t regret NOT getting the jab. Long Live The Control Group!

      Actually, we did know, the information was there for those who looked and listened. We certainly could know enough to say “Wait a minute, this doesn’t look right”.

      I didn’t know personally where to look at first, but was fortunate to follow online blogs where others did find sources of information and shared those. I followed up, and decided long before December 2020 that I did not wish to have one of these jabs.
      None of this was noticeably in the mainstream media, or if it was early on it was squashed and censored quickly, so that the general public had no easy access to it.
      If I could know about it as an old duck in regional Australia with no more than an enquiring mind and an internet connection, then every politician, with goodness knows how many “advisors” and staff to do the leg work for them have absolutely no excuse for not knowing also.

      Other very telling factors were:
      The absurdity of telling sick people to stay at home without treatment until they experienced breathing difficulties or turned blue, then present to a hospital. When has that ever been the way we address a respiratory illness?
      A novel mRNA vaccine that had been “developed” in record time, certainly not enough time for it to be declared “safe and effective”, not that any drug or medical intervention can ever be declared fully safe or effective. There is always some risk to some individuals.
      Contracts to purchase absurd amounts of these “vaccines”, the details of which we are still not allowed to know.
      The demonising of safe and affordable drugs like ivermectin and hydroxichloroquine, to the extent that here in Queensland at least it was legislated – made law – that it was a criminal offence to prescribe those drugs for covid, and the supply for other diseases was extremely limited.
      PM Morrison declaring that the jabs would be made “as mandatory as it’s possible to make them”.
      “Health” minister Hunt (former WEF person) declaring we were in a global vaccine trial.
      The tyrannical and literally brutal restrictions and enforcements placed on citizens at the whim of state “health ministers”, and enthusiastically and brutally enforced by police forces across the nation.
      The closing of borders between states against the Australian Constitution, unbelievably ruled as OK by the High Court.
      The mandating of face masks.
      The mandating (often ignored) of QR codes to enter premises.
      The closing of businesses, sporting activities (unless you were a footballer or their WAGS) – in fact the almost total closing down of the entire country and economy.
      Brothels and takeaway booze outlets could operate, but not other businesses.

      None of this stuff made sense, and went against our extant pandemic planning. Any one or a couple of those factors should have had most of the population questioning, and our elected representatives objecting.

      This stubborn sceptical streak caused me to seek out contra opinions on the vax and there is no way anyone with an open mind couldn’t have doubts about it.

      I am always surprised how many of my fellow citizens simply believe what they are told and how they shuffle along with the herd without any embarrassment, or understanding, that they are simply an NPC.

      The jabs came somewhat late to Australia and probably that’s what saved me. Out of curiosity I scanned a very large number of websites and found various first-hand reports of people who were injured … including from people claiming to have been in the original Pfizer trial. What I noticed was a consistent pattern … the individual was an early volunteer because he/she believed it was the right thing to do … a problem happened and the individual dutifully reported symptoms back to wherever they got the shots … then the medical industry didn’t want to know, tried to gaslight them into believing what they experienced was not real, and then dropped all communications and could not care less.

      I read about this pattern sufficiently often to have a clear idea that something dodgy was happening here.

      When they went a step further and denied that natural immunity can ever be created by catching a virus and recovering I was even more suspicious because this is obviously utter BS.

      Then I got people telling me that either a virus doesn’t mutate, or else somehow for no particular reason the jab will still cover you despite virus mutation and I understood that the official narrative had departed the rational realm entirely.

    Australian nationalist, 20, has his bank account shut down due to his political views

    A young Australian nationalist with no criminal history has been “debanked” due to his political views.

    Melbourne man Michael Nelson, 20, received a letter from Bendigo Bank on Friday informing him that his account would be closed in 21 days, citing a clause in their terms and conditions.

    “right-wing activist”
    “National Socialist”
    pick one

    … he was not surprised because many of his friends had experienced the same thing.

    “We have a system that forces us to have no independence over what we earn, declare everything we earn to the government, pay taxes upon taxes on everything you make, buy, sell, and keep your oh-so-precious savings in a privately owned … bank that partakes in evil parasitic behavior (usury), all whilst paying a monthly fee to use their services. And all this so they can kick you to the curb the second you decide to stray away from their groupthink!” he wrote in response on social media.

    “But them shutting down my bank account is ultimately a nothing-burger; it does not bother me. What bothers me is the apathy of the White Australian people who do absolutely nothing whilst institutions like this walk all over them, advocate against their economic and moral interests, roll over billions of dollars a year, all while they face more economic hardship in the name of progress.”

    given known quality problems at boeing spirit North Charleston, South Carolina such that klm and qatar refused 787 dreamliners made in Boeing Spirit North Charleston South Carolina Factory hence the need to be able to distinguish Everett made 787 dreamkiners vs South Carolina made 787 Dreamliners

    Copilot

    Certainly! Given the quality concerns related to Boeing’s Spirit North Charleston factory, it’s understandable that airlines like KLM and Qatar would be cautious.

    While visually distinguishing between Everett-made and South Carolina-made 787 Dreamliners isn’t straightforward, here are some additional points to consider:

    Serial Numbers and Documentation:

    Each 787 Dreamliner has a unique serial number. You can check the aircraft’s documentation (such as maintenance logs or certificates) to verify its origin.

    Everett-made 787s typically have serial numbers starting with “ZB” or “ZA,” while South Carolina-made ones start with “ZC” or “ZD.”

    Delivery Records:

    Airlines keep records of the delivery process. You can inquire with the airline or check public records to determine the factory of origin.

    Aircraft Registration:

    The registration number (tail number) of the aircraft provides information about its origin. For example, N787BA indicates a Boeing Everett factory production, while N787BA-SC suggests South Carolina.

    Consult Experts:

    Aviation experts, enthusiasts, or industry insiders may have insights based on specific features or details that distinguish the two assembly lines.

    Remember that without official documentation, it’s challenging to definitively identify the factory of origin. Airlines prioritize safety and reliability, so they thoroughly assess each aircraft regardless of its assembly location. 😊🛫

    What are some specific quality issues reported at the Spirit North Charleston factory?

    How do airlines ensure the safety of their aircraft fleet?

      What are some specific quality issues reported at the Spirit North Charleston factory?

      Copilot

      Certainly! The Spirit AeroSystems factory in North Charleston, South Carolina, which supplies components for Boeing aircraft, has faced several quality issues:

      Defective Fuselages:

      A former quality manager, Santiago Paredes, blew the whistle on Spirit AeroSystems, revealing that he found hundreds of defects daily while inspecting 737 fuselages1.

      Problems included dented fuselages, missing fasteners, and overlooked defects1.

      Paredes specifically mentioned issues around the same aircraft door panel that flew off during an Alaska Airlines flight due to a defect that Spirit had overlooked1.

      Pressure on Inspectors:

      Paredes reported that inspectors were pressured to downplay problems, compromising quality1.
      The culture at Spirit AeroSystems was not conducive to addressing these issues effectively1.

      Safety Concerns:

      The National Transportation Safety Board investigation revealed that the Alaska Airlines door panel was removed during final assembly for defect repairs, but the bolts holding it in place were not reinstalled1.

      These safety lapses raised concerns about flying on 737s produced by Spirit AeroSystems1.

      Ongoing Scrutiny:

      Spirit AeroSystems, separate from Spirit Airlines, was spun off from Boeing nearly 20 years ago1.
      The company faced scrutiny after the Federal Aviation Administration imposed quality checks and halted 737 Max production expansion following the Alaska Airlines incident1.

      Despite these challenges, Spirit AeroSystems remains committed to improving workplace safety standards1. 😊🛫

        Boeing producing ‘ticking time bombs’, warns latest whistleblower

        ‘I was afraid to look at the news every day and see something had happened to a plane,’ says former inspector who spotted defective parts

        A whistleblower given the nickname “Showstopper” for revealing defects on Boeing planes claims the company is producing “ticking time bombs”.

        Santiago Paredes, who spent 12 years as a production inspector with Boeing supplier Spirit AeroSystems, said he identified hundreds of issues on what were meant to be finished products.

        “I saw missing parts, incomplete parts, frames that had temporary clamps and missing fasteners, dents in the parts, damaged parts, cut rivets, issues that might occur but should be fixed before they got to me,” he told the New York Post.

        “Everything I was seeing was like a ticking time bomb… I also was afraid to look at the news every day and see that something had happened to a plane in the air.”

        Mr Paredes, who is blowing the whistle on the company he left in 2022, alleged that he came under pressure to keep reports on the defects to a minimum because his bosses “didn’t have time to fix the mistakes”.

        They apparently gave him the nickname “Showstopper” because his writings on the production issues would delay deliveries to Boeing.

        Boeing has been plagued by a series of issues with its planes, including crashes in 2018 and 2019 that killed 346 people.

        Superb camera views from onboard both the booster and the Starship. The booster successfully separated and returned to land on the ocean at zero kph standing upright with flames on the water, then sinking in and tipping over. They could have landed it back on the spaceport, but its still untested.

        Starship is coming down now, plasma building around it, and should flip vertically and land in the ocean as the booster did.

    War in Ukraine Began After the 2014 Coup, Not Because of Russia – Putin

    The war in Ukraine began after the coup d’état in 2014, not because of Russia, Russian President Vladimir Putin said during his conversation with the heads of international news agencies on the sidelines of the 27th Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).

    “We did not start this war, the war began in 2014 after a coup d’état and attempts to crush those who did not agree with the coup using guns,” Putin said during the meeting on the sidelines of the SPIEF.

    Russia has made every effort to find a formula for a peaceful settlement in Ukraine, the president added.

    “Russia has made every effort to find a settlement formula by peaceful means – in 2015 Minsk [we] signed the so-called Minsk agreements, which were, incidentally, legally constituted by a decision of the UN Security Council.”
    The President added that this made the document necessary for execution, but Ukraine decided to take the military approach.

      Conclusion –

      “All of this raises a more fundamental question: Why do so many people so quickly accept government claims, on anything? And why do so many people continue to assume these same dishonest government officials can fix any problem?

      Government officials generally know little about anything, other than how to tell others what to do. Such people are the last people we should ask for advice.”

      Depends on how we define accomplishment.

      I would say Global Public Health officialdom had a similar success profile as the Inquisition.
      Science heresy was exposed with great vigor.

        We should be thankful for the many souls that were purified in the flames of social media by the righteous crusaders at Google, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

    I love doing online surveys, I especially love it when I get one of these wonderfully biased climate change surveys:

    Look at the things they say and ask:

    Australia needs to phase out the export and mining of coal and gas as soon as possible

    If Australia stopped mining and exporting coal and gas, do you think this would be good or bad for:
    Cost of living (including Affordable Housing)
    Healthcare
    The economy (including taxation)

    In future, should Australia use more or less of these energy sources?
    Renewable energy
    Coal
    Gas

    Choose the one that is closest to your view.
    Protecting and preserving our natural environment is the most important thing
    OR
    Ensuring we have a strong economy is the most important thing

    Choose the one that is closest to your view.
    People must take responsibility for themselves
    OR
    We all have a shared responsibility for each other

    Choose the one that is closest to your view.
    There are more important social issues / bigger threats to society than climate change
    OR
    Solving climate change should be a top priority because it’s the most important threat to our society

    Choose the one that is closest to your view.
    What’s most important is right now, I don’t worry that much about the future
    OR
    It’s most important to plan for tomorrow, I worry the most about the future

    Choose the one that is closest to your view.
    We shouldn’t demand that people make sacrifices for the sake of people who aren’t even born yet
    OR
    It’s the responsibility of this generation to solve climate change and leave a thriving world for our children and grandchildren

    For each pair of statements about the mining and exporting of coal and gas in Australia …
    Choose the one that is closest to your view.
    We should continue to mine and export coal and gas as we continue our efforts to lower our climate pollution
    OR
    At a time when we are trying to lower our climate pollution, it makes no sense to start new gas projects or coal mines

    Choose the one that is closest to your view.
    Gas has a role to play in replacing coal in our economy, so cannot be phased out yet
    OR
    Gas, like coal, is a fossil fuel and contributes to climate change, and both need to be phased out

    Choose the one that is closest to your view.
    We do not need to rush the phasing out of coal and gas; there is ample time for us to shift away from polluting fuels as we find other ways to do things
    OR
    We need to urgently phase out coal and gas mining and exports to prevent the worst climate change impacts

    Choose the one that is closest to your view.
    The benefits of Australia mining and exporting coal and gas, particularly to the economy, outweigh any negative environmental impacts it may have
    OR
    The environmental impacts of mining and exporting coal and gas are too great, and we should urgently phase it out as soon as possible

    Choose the one that is closest to your view.
    The Australian Government should not approve any more new coal or gas projects
    OR
    The Australian government should continue to assess all proposals for future coal and gas projects and decide whether to approve them or not, as it has until now

    Choose the one that is closest to your view.
    Australia is only responsible for climate impacts of coal and gas used within Australia
    OR
    Australia has responsibility for the climate impacts of the coal and gas it exports to other countries

    We all want to believe in a future where we live without fear of the next extreme weather event, where we can afford to put food on the table and where our kids can grow up safe, secure, and happy. But coal and gas corporations are putting that future at risk as they try desperately to expand their mines and squeeze every last dollar of profit before the world moves away from fossil fuels, and our governments are letting them get away with it. Every new coal mine and gas field takes a safe future further out of the reach of our kids. Governments have the power to keep coal and gas in the ground to prevent worsening floods and fires. It’s time for them to exercise it. The only way to ensure a safe future for generations to come is to keep fossil fuels in the ground. Our government must stop the expansion of coal and gas mining and exports, starting now.

    Which energy system changes do you think would lower people’s power bills fastest?
    Building new coal power stations
    Building nuclear energy reactors
    More subsidies for household rooftop solar and batteries
    Building more large-scale renewable energy, like wind and solar, with battery storage

      Shame they have to screw up such beautiful area. An interesting contrast to the great alpine park scheme where they to be locking away a big chunk of the State because they know best.

    We need to find a solid wall to put UN Secretary General António Guterres up against, spray him with thick honey and let Klaus’s insects do the rest

    The German summer temperatures and the clouds

    When the sun “pops” in midsummer and a cloud moves in front of the sun, you immediately feel a refreshing cooling. This is an everyday, mundane experience. Clouds provide shade and help lower temperatures on summer days. This is different in winter, when diffuse solar radiation accounts for a larger proportion. Cold winter nights are always accompanied by clear skies, while a blanket of clouds keeps you warm. Overall, cloud cover is a powerful climate factor that has literally dwarfed the greenhouse effect of carbon dioxide, at least in the last 20-25 years, as shown by several satellite studies ( https://doi.org/10.3390/cli11090179 ). .

      “Forget it, Jake, it’s Pilger……”

      Probably the only “churnalist” to have his name become a verb.

      To Pilger: to so bend a story that it serves a totally different narrative. He has been doing it for over forty years.

    I remember seeing those videos of Chinese people falling down in the streets and being rounded up by white-robed fellow citizens. I was immediately sceptical and suspicious. It was another year until the jab reached Australia, plenty of time to research and decide to avoid spike protein in all its forms, natural or by injection. It would be interesting should those original Chinese videos were played again on our news services, would our politicians and populace fall into line once again?
