The road to ruin. Subsidies for trade unionists who work for Holden.
Don’t Sell Your Coat by Harold Ambler, another poke in the eye for the warming alarmists. He is especially impressive because he is a progressive leftie and a climate nut for as long as he can remember. After many years of accepting the warming orthodoxy he started to notice that a few things did not add up and the more he checked the more things did not add up. He is now arguably the most scathing critic of Al Gore on the planet, especially on account of the biofuel debacle that takes food from the Third World. He reports on the work on sunspots which suggests that we may be in for a period of cooling due to changes in sunspot activity.
More of the same from Jo Nova. A major defection in Germany.
The best known environmentalist in the German Social Democratic Party announced he had become a skeptic (see FOCUS and read about his new book). It doesn’t get much more damning than this. Fritz Vahrenholt was a chemistry professor and a leftie politician, and, could it be any more poignant… also headed up the renewable energy division of Germany’s second largest utility company. CEO of a wind farm for goodness sake.
Dont forget to vote for Jo in the Bloggies.
People may have noticed that GetUp and Crikey circulated some video of Christopher Monckto at my seminar at the Mannkal Foundation. Yes my seminar. I am really upset that they picked up the sideshow about media ownership and didn’t take any notice of the seminar. Is there some agency where I can lodge a complaint?
So much for brainstorming. A myth busted.
Andrei Scheifer and the things he learned from the transition experience in Russsia. Something else, cherish our legal and moral framework.
I warned them in 1966 when the Education Officers of the National Union of Australian Uni Students met at the Black Prince Hotel at St Kilda. Amidst wailing about the claim that there was only one Aboriginal uni graduate I suggested to fix up primary and secondary education and the uni situation would take care of itself. Did anyone take any notice? Andrew Bolt reports on some Productivity Commission findings.
The Productivity Commission has just delivered its massive report on how government services are delivered, and notes that Aboriginal students are, on average, way behind on reading, writing and maths. We’re talking about 160,000 Aboriginal students. If they don’t learn to read, write and count as well as everyone else, most will stay behind forever.
For nerds. A reading guide to The Poverty of Historicism, Popper’s shortest book.
