  1. Bruce of Newcastle

    On climate Paul Homewood, Climate Depot and Woodfortrees are essential.
    Note to warmists – you need to know what a graph is if you use Woodfortrees.

  2. Rafe Champion

    OK Bruce, to be included.

  3. Elle

    Thank you, Rafe. Excellent!
    I found myself buried deep in the IPA link listening to The young IPA podcasts. Intelligent and articulate young people. Gives you some hope.
    Andrew Bolt must be so proud of his son.

    Our mission

    The Bureau’s mission is to provide Australians with the information they need to live safely and sustainably within their natural environment, which encompasses the atmosphere, ocean, water and land.
    To achieve this, the Bureau of Meteorology:

    – monitors and reports on current environmental conditions;
    – analyses and explains trends in environmental data;
    – provides forecasts, warnings and long-term outlooks on environmental phenomena that affect the safety and prosperity of Australians; and
    – fosters greater public understanding of environmental intelligence.


    The BoM failed in its mission in 2011 with the Queensland floods, having declared a global warming permanent drought, and again in 2019, repeating the same mistake:


    The BoM will predict 1-in-1000 year floods for the future, which is here, now, but can’t predict 1-in-1000 year flood here, now!
