Apart from a tad of geothermal heat and a wisp of heat from nuclear power generators, every bit of surface energy (including coal and biomass) comes directly or indirectly from the sun. There is no other source of surface heat--- everything else just stores, releases or re-directs solar energy.
As a kid I lived at No. 2 The Grange, East Malvern and I was an undercover espionage operative on behalf of the Government. The Government didn’t know that of course, but I did!
The Greens’ Sarah Hanson-Young has no respect for, nor concept of, security matters regarding our sovereignty. Her demands for disclosure will fall on deaf ears as an Abbott team continues to successfully mend the borders Kevin Rudd broke.
Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, is playing a clever game of illegal boat chess while Bill Shorten is the boy looking on without a clue how each man moves. This is how the game is panning out and the Indonesian Government doesn’t even know, or care, that a chess game is going on.
The Federal Government is slowly dismantling the Green rorts promoted under Gillard... it was a very expensive three years. Union heavies may have “gifted” the top job to a known communist crook but she then needed to sleep with the Greens to keep it. The ALP looks back on the marriage with dismay as it now tries to divorce itself from the wreckage of that unholy alliance.
Hope you are seated for this because it could ruin your day. “Effects of climate change could hinder a sea snail’s ability to leap away from predators on one foot”, Queensland researchers say. Did I read that right?
At the risk of offending what’s left of my 75 per cent of readers who scathingly disagree with me, I will make one final apolitical plea.
It would be nice to believe the deaths of 40 of our young blokes made a difference, and while we were there it probably did, but will it be worth their families’ endless pain when Islamic barbarism is again left to its own resources? How can foot soldiers change a culture of suicide for a cause when it took two atom bombs to change Japan’s ... and their allegiance was to a mere emperor.
“Whales must not be slaughtered but for a $5,000 baby bonus, late-term infants can be butchered in an equally bloody mess”: Greens. “Native animals’ habitat must not be back-burnt but people can be incinerated”: Greens.
Imagine an ice mass larger than all of Europe, or almost twice the size of Australia. Hard to conceive of anything that size, I know. Then imagine a little blue boat full of wankers approaching a little bay somewhere on the 32,000 km coastline of that ice mass determined to prove global warming.
After having been embarrassingly ice-locked in the Antarctic, 52 confused warmists are now wending their way back home while frantically scribbling amended theses on why they didn’t find palm trees, tropical fauna and a maitai bar at the foot of Mount Erebus.
WE, the people of a free nation of blokes, sheilas and the occasional wanker. We come from many lands (although a few too many of us come from New Zealand) and although we live in the best country in the world, we reserve the right to bitch and moan about it whenever we bloody like.
The current heatwave in Australia will inflame the carbonistas who will claim it is caused by wicked humans exhaling and exhausting carbon dioxide.
