...only Al Gore's bank account is suffering

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


New York city surrounds its historic four kilometer long Central Park that has thrived for 160 years on CO2 and methane. Yet it is falsely cited as one of the world's most "polluted" cities.

Saudi Arabia’s capital, Riyadh, (above) is one of the ten most “polluted” cities on earth yet this corrupted capital has dozens of beautiful, imposing parks, thriving with vegetation ingesting the copious plant food CO2.

Iran’s Tehran, (above) not known for its environmental concerns, is also highly “polluted” yet sports dozens of thriving parks and gardens, with healthy trees competing for sunlight.

Famous for its "pollution", Tokyo supports a population of over 36 million and many magnificent old-growth parklands. 

The same applies for vehicle-choked Los Angeles, yet the warmists still maintain CO2 is a dangerous pollutant. But LA's sequoias (above) don't appear too distressed.

The World Health Organisation claims fossil fuel's toxic fumes blanket large cities. The WHO tells lies, this is steam, H2O, and will return to earth as distilled water.

Vegetation sucks up CO2 and returns the oxygen we need. The constant photosynthesis process only needs light.

So while little Josh Friedanegg bemoans the loss of his NEG, this four billion year-long process continues, whether it's recycling dinosaur methane or CO2.

There is nothing for little Josh to worry about.

But there's plenty for Al Gore to worry about now that his "convenient" hoax is unravelling across the world.   


Sco Mo must ceremoniously DUMP this Scam Paris Agreement and save us Mega $

Turnbull now attempting to undermine Dutton, He never raised this issue when he was in office, but apparently it is now a hot problem, I expect this sniping will continue for , at least up to and after the next election after which he will lose his political relevance , Turnbull is more and more looking like a left wing plant,One of the growing band of multi millionaire socialists ,who wish socialism on others while reaping the wealth of the capitalist system, Could i suggest that all lefties and labour MPs accept the ""average "" workers wage instead of the $200 grand, plus perks , That would certainly show solidarity with the workers! some hope.

Some years ago before the privacy act got started I was working with a pig of a man who told us of his exploits in the army so I rang the services superannuation mob to enquire of his military service and that came back negative so I told the other workers and that and he became rather sheepish .

Stink hasn't seen a reasoned argument yet because he doesn't want to see one.

Inky, it's not being 'scared', it's being aware of those you can't trust. Anyone who supports the cult that caused 9/11 is someone I can't trust. And as they're potentially deadly, I call them traitors (to the west and its people).

See... it has self validated!
Briankhyslop is indeed a worthless individual.

Sad really , that she did what she did, because in the future she will remembered as a bully and not as the class player ,which she is ,She has done herself no favours ,but whats done is done and cannot be undone, Her past boil overs while known among the tennis watchers was one thing , but now most previously disinterested people will remember her tantrums, which will now taint her tennis legacy every time the subject of bulling in sport comes up ,

"CNN Finally Sees the Light?"

Mark Dice

Who would want to be in the North Korean army? all that goose stepping and shouting,looks like hard work to me, and hard on the feet!

Common sense is to ban Islam

ban the head bag is a con, to muddy the waters.

If that now famous cartoon about Serena Williams had been in a different context , say stomping on the head of Donald Trump for instance , the left would have praised the cartoonist as a genius.!

Briankhyslop has no record or ever doing anything for anyone but itself..
Trooper5 is fine with me.


Briankhyslop, your posts indicate that you are lacking.... just about everything.
Nothing to recommend your existence at all.

Turkey: Torture, Sexual Abuse Rampant in Prisons
by Uzay Bulut
September 10, 2018 at 5:00 am

Inmates in a jail in ?anl?urfa in southeast Turkey tell of the plight of 27-year-old U?ur Yelo?lu, who they say has been isolated and tortured so badly since his imprisonment seven months ago that his level of functioning is like that of a baby.

Yelo?lu was arrested in Istanbul in January for allegedly "aiding a terrorist organization." His lawyer, Abdülkadir Aslan, said that in spite of the many months his client has been in jail, his indictment has not yet been prepared by prosecutors: "The investigation file is also marked 'confidential,' so we do not know what it contains."

"Prisoners are beaten up and sometimes killed, when they refuse to roll-call standing up, give military salute, reject strip searches, or ask to see a doctor." — Report by the opposition Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP).

Why Did the Clintons Share the Stage with Farrakhan?
by Alan M. Dershowitz
September 10, 2018 at 4:00 am

But the "shoe on the other foot" question remains: would he [Former President William Jefferson Clinton] have acted similarly if it had been [David] Duke rather than [Louis] Farrakhan?

Farrakhan is at least as bigoted as Duke. This is a man who only last year called Jews members of the "Synagogue of Satan" and claimed that Jesus called the Jews "the children of the devil." Farrakhan is also a homophobe, claiming that "Jews [are] responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out turning men into women and women into men."

There are not "good people" on the side of anti-Semitism, any more than there are "good people" on the side of white supremacy. There is no place for a double standard when it comes to anti-Semitism. Black anti-Semitism should not get a pass on account of the oppression suffered by so many Black people; neither should "progressive" tolerance of anti-Semitism of the kind shown by Bernie Sanders' support for Jeremy Corbyn, the anti-Semite who heads the British Labour Party and may well become the next prime minister of America's closest ally.

Today 17 years ago, our country was attacked by Islamic terrorists.

For years we were lied to and misled about who was behind this horrific tragedies, and what motivated them. We were told to ignore the obvious, and paid the price in thousands of American lives.

Thousands of families lost fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters forever — all because our leaders fed us lies about the dangers of radical Islam.

But we finally have a President that gets it, and will stop at nothing to secure America and keep terrorists out by any means necessary — no matter who he offends.

To read about 9/11 in the age of the Trump administration, please scroll down.

God bless the victims and their families. Please join me in both remembering them and honoring them.

For America,
David Horowitz

At last, beyond denial and fatalism?

Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations At 400 PPM Are Still Dangerously Low For Life On Earth

By P Gosselin on 17. May 2013---notrickzone

With atmospheric CO2 concentrations reaching the 400 ppm level, the media and a number of alarmist scientists have set off the mega-alarm bells, claiming “record high levels” of CO2 had been reached, and that the planet is on the verge of an overdose. This is based purely on ignorance of the Earth’s history.

Worrying that 400 ppm is too high is like worrying about your fuel tank overflowing when it reaches the 1/8 mark during filling.

Figure above-right: At 400 ppm CO2 levels are actually dangerously low in historical terms.

From a historical perspective, an atmospheric CO2 concentration of 400 ppm is actually almost scraping the bottom of the barrel. Over the Earth’s history, atmospheric CO2 concentrations have ranged from 180 ppm to 7000 ppm, see Figure 1 below. On that scale we are in fact today barely above the Earth’s record lows.

Figure 1: Atmospheric CO2 concentration is just barely above the life-sustaining levels of 150 ppm. For life to have real buffer against mass extinction, CO2 needs to be closer to 1000 ppm. Source:

That 400 ppm is actually dangerously low is a fact the alarmists keep avoiding and suppressing. Below 150 ppm, plant-life dies off on a massive scale. The Earth actually came very close to that point many times over the last 2 million years during the ice ages. At the bottom of the last ice age just 20,000 years ago, life on the planet literally teetered on the brink when CO2 fell to a level of just 180 ppm. Do we really want to live on the brink of extinction?

It’s a fact that biologists have shown that once the atmospheric CO2 level falls below the 500 ppm level, plants really begin to suffer. Many of us have seen the video showing how plants grow faster under higher CO2 concentrations. The following charts show the growth curves of some plants as a function of CO2 concentration:

Climate Myth: CO2 was higher in the past
"The killer proof that CO2 does not drive climate is to be found during the Ordovician- Silurian and the Jurassic-Cretaceous periods when CO2 levels were greater than 4000 ppmv (parts per million by volume) and about 2000 ppmv respectively. If the IPCC theory is correct there should have been runaway greenhouse induced global warming during these periods but instead there was glaciation."
(The Lavoisier Group)

Over the Earth's history, there are times where atmospheric CO2 is higher than current levels. Intriguingly, the planet experienced widespread regions of glaciation during some of those periods. Does this contradict the warming effect of CO2? No, for one simple reason. CO2 is not the only driver of climate. To understand past climate, we need to include other forcings that drive climate. To do this, one study pieced together 490 proxy records to reconstruct CO2 levels over the last 540 million years (Royer 2006). This period is known as the Phanerozoic eon.
