Let me start with this suggestion: IT MUST BECOME ILLEGAL FOR ANY INDIVIDUAL OR BUSINESS PROVIDING CONTRIBUTIONS TO POLITICAL PARTIES TO BE GIVEN A GOVERNMENT SUBSIDY OF ANY KIND TO UNDERTAKE ANY FORM OF INFRASTRUCTURE CONSTRUCTION IN AUSTRALIA. Let me now continue.
I posted this yesterday Look! Australia is now setting the international standard for green idiocy but there’s even more today. You must read each of these through yourself to see how ridiculous Australia now looks to others who understand just what a low-grade con global warming is. These could be in either order, but will start here: The Greatest Scandal in the History of Science. It’s about us, but this is only one bit of a longer post:
I have written many times about the unwarranted “adjustments” to measured past temperatures by government agencies, which serve to inflate the modest warming that has occurred in recent decades. Organizations around the world (NOAA and NASA-GISS here in the U.S.) have done this over and over, usually surreptitiously. The Manhattan Contrarianshares my opinion that this misrepresentation of the historical record is the worst scandal in the history of science. The most recent instance comes from Australia.
Another Australian named Gillham has also worked to uncover the shenanigans at Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology. He created this chart, which plots the original raw temperature records against ACORN1 and ACORN2. You can plainly see how those responsible for the records have systematically lowered the measured temperatures of earlier years in order to inflate the warming of recent years:
The Contrarian comments:
As you can see, the “raw” and “v1” temperatures tend to be close — sometimes one higher, sometimes the other. But v2 is significantly lower across the board in the earlier years. Then, suddenly, in the recent years, it tracks the “raw” almost perfectly.
And then there’s this: Australia’s Obsession With Hopelessly Intermittent Wind & Solar Wrecking Entire Power Grid. There you find this among many other things.
Australians once enjoyed affordable power, reliably delivered: the chaotic delivery of wind and solar changed all that. Australian power prices have rocketed out-of-control: its wind and solar power capital, South Australia pays the highest electricity prices, in the world.
Mass power cuts (aka load shedding and demand management) and mass blackouts are the new normal. And yet, the lunatics responsible are hell-bent on doubling down to deliver the final and fatal blow to Australia’s Eastern Grid (geographically, the largest interconnected power grid on the planet).
We are the stupid country and all the prior luck in the world will not compensate for our willingness to allow our political parties to be subsidised by the green industry.
And if you think any of this is about to stop, you should see the front page of The Oz this morning: Carbon cut apocalypse: cost of ALP energy plan.
Are Australians really this stupid? C’mon, Malcolm’s gone and Julia’s gone with him. Why does this idiocy continue?
AND THIS TOO: Just sent to me. He talks about climate as a cycle, in the same way I might talk about economic growth and unemployment. Anyway…
