...haven't harmed its coral

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.


The Australian Government’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority’s web site claims if conditions (sea temperatures) don't improve within weeks, the corals will eventually starve and die. The website claims coral bleaching “is not always fatal”, but has been one of the main causes of coral death... blah blah etc.

The truth is that the only pollution the GBR has seen lately is the inane bullshit coming from an endless line of marine biology graduates. Without a contrived disaster (global warming) none would have a job... our reef system is as vibrant as it has always been.

But marine biology is a favourite course of our intelligence challenged university students. Why wouldn’t it be? Who wouldn’t prefer floating around the reefs on the back of a turtle measuring corals to a desk job.

The trouble is that there are now too many permanent uni holiday makers on the market and secondly, there is not a damned thing wrong with our reefs or any other of the world’s reefs, so in truth there isn’t a proper job for any of them.

The Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change predicts that by 2035 the average sea surface temperature will be warmer than any previously recorded, and by 2100 sea temperatures off north-eastern Australia could be at least 2.5 degrees Celsius warmer than the present average.

The latest claim is that global warming has caused cyclones that are also destroying our reef system... what a load of frog shit! Cyclones are as important to reefs’ welfare as bushfires are to the bush where mounting dead and old weakened strains of growth are eliminated to make way for new growth. That’s how things work!

Old growth corals eventually become the pristine white sands of coral beaches.

So much for cyclones, now for sea temperatures. Dodgy Green measuring suggests a sea temperature rise of one half of one degree Celsius since 1910. Really?

So this drastic warming of half of one degree over a century is killing our coral?

The Dead Sea and the Red Sea are already up to 10 degrees Celsius warmer than our Reef which has temps as low as 14 C during winter. Yet the Dead and Red Seas of the Middle East, with average temperatures of 30 C, have equally magnificent coral reefs (Red Sea Pictured). How can these corals exist in water so hot compared to ours?

It seems that heat and cyclones encourage reefs and their inhabitants to evolve to even greater beauty.

Not that I would believe one thing environmental groups and the UN’s IPCC have said about our climate because everything they have suggested so far has been plainly wrong!

This “apocalyptic” climate change is nothing more than business as usual, or have we already forgotten the Y2K bug and the ozone layer scams.

The truth is the plethora of marine biologists pouring out of our Lefty universities need to concoct “temperature” disasters or they simply won’t have a job.

In the meantime battling Aussies are saving up for a Barrier Reef holiday with the kids to show them what has been evolving, and will continue to evolve, for the next million years.

What’s the bet that the snorkel, mask and flippers academics will have discovered a cooling threat by end of this century?  


I was on the reef in Pt Douglas last week and I have never seen such beautiful bright coral. The marine biologist however said that was it's last hoorah before it spat it's algae and bleached. If a new algae wasn't found in 5 days it would die. Who knows what to believe because it looked fantastic.

Global warming, concocted by scientists to justify their existence and get grant money for holidays doing research.

And the labor party wants zero emissions by 2030??!! They're dreamin'. That's, of course, at no cost to the consumer/voter.....well maybe a little cost, but not a fixed one, a floating carbon price. Another fantasy by labor/greens coalition.

"What’s the bet that the snorkel, mask and flippers academics will have discovered a cooling threat by end of this century? " If I was a bookie, you couldn't get a bet on with me that there won't be a cooling the minds of the lefty 'scientists' who have to toe the party line to receive continued funding.

A breath of fresh air and commonsense from Mark Latham on Alan Jones' show on Sky tonight. He's obviously no longer in politics. If a conservative politician had said half of what Latham said tonight, the ABC would be in meltdown.

Billy B, I think you should add one of two words to your comment - either 'eventually', or 'maybe'. I pride t that the cost of this project will blow out to act least double the figure quoted - and that the project will be late by five or even ten years. That's if all 12 are ever built. Diesel subs in 2040/ like sending 1918-era Vickers Vimys against a the state of the art North Vietnamese air defence system in 1969. The crews will all learn the gladiators' salute in Latin before they go to war. In English? - 'We who are about to die salute you."

The challenge for staunch conservatives is to vote the WWW and his traitors back in, but without a distinct majority - particularly in the senate. The 56 traitors need to be taught a lesson - but we don't need to cut our nose off to spite our own face - by electing a Shorten Labor government that will be controlled by a bunch of lying, thieving, union thugs. As in Victoriastan with the Andrews CFMEU puppet government, the state of Queensland and the accidental Premier, Palacechook, are now owned and controlled by the CFMEU - when these crims say jump, Anna and Daniel ask, how high?

Why the U.S. will not likely survive the next century

America is in the advanced stages of a moral and cultural rot. The country is $19 trillion dollars in debt and is ruthlessly spending and printing its own way to financial oblivion. It is suffering from hegemony and military overreach with its 662 military bases, scattered across some 38 different countries. If the U.S. is not inciting revolution and anarchy across the globe in the name of democracy, it is deployed directly in conflicts or has military advisers on the ground to puppeteer the conflict towards its own favorable ends. 43% of all U.S. citizens are obese. Its borders are unsecured - with a 40% increase seen in illegal immigration since 2014 along.
While the debates continue on exactly what to do about the immigration problem or should fences be built along the US-Mexican border, ISIS continues to exploit the situation to potentially transport foreign Islamic terrorists unto American soil. According to Covenant Eyes, an internet search group, 1 out of 5 mobile searches on the internet involves pornography.
Illegal drugs continue to be both manufactured and transported into the U.S. with no apparent way of halting or stopping the flow. In the US alone, more than 15 million people abuse prescription drugs, more than the combined number of people who reportedly abuse cocaine, hallucinogens, inhalants and heroin. If the war against drugs can't be won, what luck will we ever have winning the war on terror? Does anyone remember who won Lyndon B. Johnson's famed war on poverty? Regardless, let's throw some more taxpayers' money at an issues that money along can't fix.

Have a heart - the Wright Bros, started something , these Guys needed to start somewhere .

Me, too, chrisk (i.e 'hope'). Today, for the first time, we had flyers from Bernie Gaynor in our letter box. That means the inhabitants of the Regional Qld town I live in will at least have heard of ALA in time for the election.

all 12 of Australia's next fleet of submarines will be built in Adelaide from local steel,


The human race is stuffed,,, it can;t live in reality any more , so it has to make up a million miles of But then again , some religions have been doing that for a zillion years

R56, I understand, what I was suggesting is that a percentage may totally avoid the majors
It's a wide spread disenchantment, so minors may benefit more that Malcolm planed on..

And they even have that doyen of the natural world, Sir David Attenborough conned to aide their cause. To say nothing about that world favourite Popey, hoping to cash in on the new religion known as "Climate Change". Popey , one can understand , as he and his lot have been flying the religious banner for hundreds of years , very lucratively , and with dwindling numbers filling the great churches on top of every hill in the world ,, they must be looking for new sources of income.......But David Attenborough , ??really ??

Thanks for the info on the new ballot paper R56 but can you imagine Shotgun trying to figure our who's preferencing who? Let alone the other morons who don't have a clue. Rest assured, the backroom boys from both major parties will have the perfect how to vote card to 'help' the neanderthals who are confused. And there will be millions.

It will be so easy to ensure a Party you despise will not end up with your vote. What would happen if everyone boycotted the majors. The best laid plans......

Not too sure of the future for the solar powered aircraft but one has to crawl before they walk and walk before they run.

Walker Texas Ranger is on the job,
Actor and activist Chuck Norris called out the “sky criminals” in his latest op-ed examining several pieces of evidence showing a global geoengineering scheme may possibly already be underway.

In a shocking World Net Daily editorial, the Walker Texas Ranger star warned governments may already be covertly subjecting populations to weather modification experiments.

Highlighting a 2003 National Center for Biotechnology Information abstract which concluded that “aerosol immunization seems a promising method of vaccination,” Norris asserted he found it doubtful the US government has not already tested the method or others on US populations.

Hillary staying classy,

Prince fans aren’t happy to see their pop-star’s death used for political gain.

During a campaign rally in Dunmore, Pennsylvania, Hillary Clinton walked out to Prince’s iconic “Let’s Go Crazy” anthem, following his death earlier in the week.
