<< HUMAN, DOG RIGHTS VIOLATED ~ MAIN ~ CHICKS GET MIDGETS >>

NATIONS CHILLED

A Gore-like effect is observed across South Africa:

The South African Weather Service recorded 54 weather records in the icy, wet and snowy weather this week.

On Monday, there were 34 new records and on Tuesday, another 20. Almost all were for the lowest maximum and minimum daily temperatures in towns across the country.

The weird thing is, known chill-maker Al Gore was nowhere near the place. He was instead visiting, ahem, Chile. Meanwhile, despite annual hysteria over the threat to Australian skiing posed by gloybill wooming ...

“The whole place has gone completely white. It’s fully covered the whole resort,” said Mr Grant, [Perisher Blue Ski Resort’s] marketing manager. “It was a wild, wintry night. It just blizzarded. The snow was coming in from all directions.”

Some ski enthusiasts have taken advantage of the cold climate and started the ski season early. The official season kicks off on June 9.

UPDATE. Snowcams for all!

  1. Meanwhile, the SMH reports in its usual objective way, fueled no doubt by furious leaks from Harris Street, Ultimo, that the ABC was pressured to show the Great Global Warming Swindle, despite the program using “fabricated data and half truths”. An ABC representative, asked whether he thought running a program that had been shown to include falsified data would damage the ABC,  “I don’t think it will at all.”

    He could have added:“Of course it won’t. We do it all the time”.

  6. Tim, you’re not with the program. Unusual weather is only caused by global warming if it’s unusually warm weather. Blizzards, early winter and so on are due to natural variation.

  8. Before global warming was caused by conservatives and assorted capitalist death beasts, the weather was controlled by leftist elves from Camelot:
    It’s true! It’s true! The crown has made it clear.
    The climate must be perfect all the year.

    A law was made a distant moon ago here:
    July and August cannot be too hot.
    And there’s a legal limit to the snow here
    In Camelot.
    The winter is forbidden till December
    And exits March the second on the dot.
    By order, summer lingers through September
    In Camelot.
    Camelot! Camelot!
    I know it sounds a bit bizarre,
    But in Camelot, Camelot
    That’s how conditions are.
    The rain may never fall till after sundown.
    By eight, the morning fog must disappear.
    In short, there’s simply not
    A more congenial spot
    For happily-ever-aftering than here
    In Camelot.

    Camelot! Camelot!
    I know it gives a person pause,
    But in Camelot, Camelot
    Those are the legal laws.
    The snow may never slush upon the hillside.
    By nine p.m. the moonlight must appear.
    In short, there’s simply not
    A more congenial spot
    For happily-ever-aftering than here
    In Camelot.

  9. As a part-time ski instructor, I wish that Algore would come down to Australia from June to September so that we can have a good season.  Regarding the snow falls this week, snow around late May generally augurs well for a good season.  The big dumps in April generally mean a bad season.

    Now I have attained the age of 13 ;-) I am a little more philosophical about such things. Like, for example, if I can do something about something, I will, otherwise I won’t waste my time. Global warming being an example, as I cannot control the sun.

  23. VDH has a good piece on Gore d’Almighty and the serial purchasers of penances:

    ”... serial confessions simply encouraged serial sinning. The calculating sinner would do good things in one place to offset his premeditated bad in another. The corruption surrounding these cynical penances and indulgences helped anger Martin Luther and cause the Reformation.
    Maybe it was inevitable that the old practice of paid absolution would appeal to elite baby boomers — a class and generation that always seems to want it both ways by compartmentalizing their lives. The only difference is that the new sinners are not so worried about God’s wrath as they are about their reputation among their judgmental liberal gods.”

  96. ABC Lateline just had an item on how they’re being forced to broadcast an edited version of The Great Global Warming Swindle, and failed to disclose what was edited and why.

    To support the transmission of a program “we” want shown on “our” ABC, they had Andrew Bolt, introduced with the epithet CONSERVATIVE COMMENTATOR, which seems to have the same effect on this channel as being labelled “Convicted Neo-natal Necrophilliac” ; to oppose, George Monbiot, who somehow missed out on being prefixed as SERIAL DINGBAT CONSPIRACY NUT AND FASCIST APOLOGIST- must have been an error in the edit.

    The four-eyed twat running the item appeared at the end, making it plain that it’s being forced on the ABC by the neocon running dogs in the boardroom, and if he and his comrades had their way the filmakers and anyone caught viewing the doco would be rounded up and shipped off to the salt mines. On second thought, all these pansies would be on low sodium diets, but being shipped off to the extra virgin olive oil press just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

    Straight after they’ve got dinosaur expert Tim Flummery on, telling us of his plan to hose power consumers for daring to use electric light to avoid walking into doors in the dark and gas to broil our carbon-overloaded lot-fed sirloin. He then finished by admitting that there’s a “10% chance that skeptics are right”, but then used the fatuous anology of a doctor prescribing a drug that had a 90% success rate. One is a proven treatment for a disease which can be established through clinical testing, the other is a theory from publicity and grant-hungry cynics which has no imperical evidence and is based on a doomsday scenario to generate fear; he would have been better using the example of a Filipino faith healer.

    He then claimed the ABC was running it “for ratings”- if everyone’s convinced, professori, where would the viewers come from for a discredited polemic?

    I think these bastards are starting to get worried.

    If I was inclined to believe in conspiracies I would be working on one to explain why the copy of GGWS that I ordered from Amazon UK in April has just had its delivery date blown out from mid-May to mid-October.
    It could be a case of demand exceeding supply of course, but a five-month delay in delivery…?

  126. The Flim Flan man’s put a price on his plan to bring Australians up to the climate-aware levels of power consumption folled currently in Nth Korea and previously anywhere in the Soviet Union, and has said “This is not an end of the world scenario for the average consumer*.”

    Lateline last night was preceeded by the aptly named Crude- unrefined indeed in its ham-fisted attempt to push the AGW barrow (or in this case, drag it behind an SUV; I note the promo says it’s a CO2 free production, but the presenter spent most of the time barrelling around the Persian Gulf states in a Nissan Patrol, and I’m betting it wasn’t a diesel or hybrid). The Jurassic Period featured heavily, and its documented warming was continually brought up- the depth of cloud cover was mentioned at the start, then ignored thereafter as cloud cover and sunspot activity have no place in a polemic that suits the ABC’s Rousseauian agenda for humanity.

    *This is provisional on the term “average consumer” referring to someone who commands US$50,000 for an hours diatribe, and who has thus been able to cut himself off the grid and doesn’t give a fuck what mug punters get gouged by state monopolies. BTW- has anyone asked how The Flannster accesses his green utopia on the Hawkesbury, seeing as apparently it is only accessable by boat? Does Timmeh row to and from his various appointments and engagements? Or is a hypocritical whiskery fart?

    Thanks for the lesson on Mount Kosciusko.  6pt text in a thirty year old atlas.  Dirty glasses.  Bad light angle.  I could go on.  Learned even more by your link and further research.  Mountain named after a Polish fellow, so don’t expect many ‘Murkins outside Chicago to spell it right. 

    It’s in a continental-spanning (N/S) range called “Great Dividing” in a subset called “Australian Alps” and “Snowy.”  Wow. 

    Regarding the citizenship test, I’ll be looking that up.  Maybe as a model, as apparently we (USA) don’t have one.

    And it’s “Ayers Rock” not “Ayer’s Rock.” 

    Thanks again.

I saw him walking down the street the other day, and it looked, not so much as if he were wearing a bow tie, but rather, as if a particularly large specimen of the blue morpho butterfly (Morpho didius) had alighted on the front of his collar. He has a red one that gives the impression that he has strapped a box kite around his neck.

  143. #126 Habib

    Last night I watched Flummery on Lateline and I have come to the considered opinion that the man is stark raving mad, i.e., a complete fuckwit.  For one thing his body language speaks volumes - the sudden movements, the wide eyed stares, the drivel that rolls off his tongue all interspersed with frequent you knows. However, if nothing else, it’s a fascinating case study of a personal psychosis that also seems to be a key component of the psychosis of that much larger body: The Holy Church of Gorebull Varming.

    But to just a few of his remarks: In response to Tony Jones, and a shortage of water for power stations he suggested that power stations need water to supply cooling and water for the steam to drive the turbines.  A half truth at best, but really an ignorant remark.  The steam cycle is a closed cycle with a very small quantity of water required for make up purposes, to allow mainly for boiler blow down, and that water has to be specially treated prior to use.  Water use at power station is mainly for cooling - and that by evaporation - either directly through a water source such as a lake or through cooling towers.

    Flummery suggested, at Jones’ prompting, that today we would not build a power station inland, near the coal fields, but rather on the coast where sea water could be used for cooling. What bullshit and hindsight in a time of drought.  Going back 50 years we still had city based power stations around this country that used sea water for cooling, and the sea for coal transport to the stations.  Why?  Because the power loads were in cities, those loads were relatively small and the cost of transmission lines to send power from a power station on the coal fields was too great.  Big deal!  The whole equation of power station location is based on costs - the cost of the fuel supply, cooling water, available water, connection infrastructure, i.e., the transmission lines, the location of the loads that will be supplied, available land and so on.

    As I said, this man is a fuckwit because his answers indicated that he has no idea what he is talking about.

    And he thinks that we are about to experience or prove what would happen with a carbon price (i.e. a tax) of $50 per tonne as the cost of power rises on the interconnected grid in response to power shortages.  That by the way would be roughly equal to an imposed cost of 5 cents per kWh at the wholesale level.  Well more bullshit.  Anyone wishing to wade through this report at NEMMCO, will find that the effect of potential generator shortages in the national grid is uncertain and will depend on the circumstances at the time.  Water shortage may have an effect, however not the effect that dingbat Flummery is suggesting.  Flummery may be disappointed but for his claim to have credence would require the price of all electricity on the national grid to be increased by $50 per MWh and that is most unlikely.  I guess all that this shows is that Flummery does not understand how trading markets work!  But that shouldn’t be surprising.

    So apart from Flummery and his crap, the major issues to be addressed in the national electricity grid is the failure of all State governments to adequately invest in it and/or get out thereby allowing proper investment to take place.  No doubt it will be all fun and games in the years to come if/when the first major outages occur due to lack of proper investment rather than water.  Then we will see our politicians running frantically in all directions to fix the problems of their own creation.

    And oh yes, if I haven’t said it already, Flummery is stark raving mad, i.e., a complete fuckwit.

    A f*ckwitted academic, at best.
    As per Tim’s previous thread, Flummery is to Electrical Engineering and Economics as they are Archaeology.

    Jones had the twit on the ropes with:
    TIM FLANNERY: ... But even if we get a wet year this year it’s not going to go away. That trend is here to stay now of less water availability. ...
    ...
    TONY JONES: But if your logic is right, think about it this way, if electricity is already much more expensive because of the drought and the drought continues and then you add a carbon price on top of that won’t that cause the task group to moderate the carbon price so as not to damage the economy?

    TIM FLANNERY: I guess you could see it that way and you could say, “Why should we bother having a carbon price then if this drought’s going to be permanent?” I really haven’t thought through that.

    Bingo! F-wit.
    What permanent drought?

  148. Slghtly O/T but the Goreicle has an extract from his new tome of wisdom on the gruinads website.
    here

    This little bit strikes me as “dont ask what we did prior to 9/11”
    “Most Americans have tended to give the Bush-Cheney administration the benefit of the doubt when it comes to its failure to take action in advance of 9/11 to guard against an attack”..

    And the final section ends with…
    “We as Americans should have “known then what we know now”- not only about the invasion of Iraq but also about the climate crisis; what would happen if the levees failed to protect New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina; and about many other fateful choices that have been made on the basis of flawed, and even outright false, information. We could and should have known, because the information was readily available. We should have known years ago about the potential for a global HIV/Aids pandemic. But the larger explanation for this crisis in American decision-making is that reason itself is playing a diminished, less respected, role in our national conversation.”

    And he should know.
    The comments are funny in a “laugh at the deformed lepers” type of way.

    Trying to put Gore/USA in a historical context, a la the arrogance of the British a century or so ago (Rule Brittania) ... we all have our expiry date and history will judge us accordingly.

    Hopefully (some) yanks cringe at this guy’s utterances, on behalf of their nation?

  153. #150, egg_:

    Some of us cringe at the reality that we’ve grown so weak and spineless that we allow such scum continued existance.

    And dont get me wrong about China. I, actually, would like to see China grow in real prosperity and develop a solid stable economy. Such a thing would remove much of what drives them into playing the enemy with us.

    Also, I dont assume that the US will be a dominant force for ever, or even for much longer. There are events unfolding domestically that may well see the US having to end any real power projection.

    In such a situation, with there being no real valid force to emerge as dominant, it may well devolve back into the grab as grab can and the constant low intensity conflict problems of times past.

    I have no clue what the power shift would be in the Aussie area. I assume that Australia would have to massivly invest in force projection at least on the sea to safe guard commerce.

    It may well work out, if worst comes to worst, that Austalia, Japan, South Korea and Singapore develop into a comprehensive alliance. I left out Tiawan because they just dont seem to be at all interested in the rest of the world, and inviting them in would cause grief with PDRC which could, at least, blockaide the island nation. I dont think PDRC can mount sufficient logistical lines to actually invade and hold it though.

  154. #148 frollickingmole: Gore’s book - The Assault on Reason - should be subtitled An Insider’s Guide.

  156. Actually, I think The Aussault on Reason by Al Gore is a perfect title.

    I am still a little miffed at wronwright for missing a chance to use one of my favorite words, ‘defenestrated’. As in, “The rebels stormed the palace, and some men in dark suits and masks defenestrated the president then disappeared into the chaos.”

  157. From aaron’s #155 link:

    The authors, from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, say their findings do not necessarily conflict with recent papers asserting a link between the region’s hurricane activity and human-caused warming of the climate and seas.

    What recent papers????!!??? Puleeze, I would be very interested.

    “An Inconvenient Truth”, for one.
    It’s called CYA.

  159. You could be right. Or, they could just be talking about newspapers.
