No, it is just a form of elitism, falsely imagining yourself to be firmly in possession of the truth, and worse than that, thinking yourself on the side of what is "good". The ultimate fantasy. Nothing is that black and white. Only a fool is not beset by doubts, that is one certainty you can back in !


thanks for confirming that Doc, you have never shown a single doubt on TBV even when you have been shownd to be incorrect Thumbs Up
Yeah...however you admire him anyway !


you are an incredibly pathetic man of status LOL

I love the "science" of the notoriously villainous Crown of Thorns Starfish, or as old Joh used to call it, perhaps more accurately, the Star of Crowns Thornfish. It has been devouring the reef for 50 years, and still hasn't managed to finish the job, but I suppose it takes the pressure off the Curse of Coal as the main culprit. You would think after all the COTS panics over the years, someone well paid to do it, would have worked out exactly what the ecology of the situation is, but no, let's organize a tinny full of divers equipped with vinegar-filled syringes, to cleanse 10,000 square miles of reef.

When "good" posters turn bad. Like those types of shows, "When good pets turn bad". There is a moral lesson, in it, they never were either good or bad !

Yet another Green Lie!Dead

That was just a training camp for the Green Hippies, to get their chanting tuned, their lettering right on their placards, and their "look" refined.

They did so well, they are now 'legit", and on the payroll and available for any virtue signalling event on the calendar ... Adani, SSM, Bi Elections  ... you name it!Tongue

"Dial A Mindless Protester" is the main outfit, but "SJWs 'R' US!" is the new kid on the block, attracting a lot of ALP funding, and very violent and aggressive from all accounts!Clap

out of touch with reality: WA fund manager Packer and Co

Monday, 8 January 2018 12:27PMAustralia is “losing touch with reality”, according to a WA fund manager with almost $2 billion invested offshore in some of the world’s biggest companies.

Cottesloe-based Packer & Co, which manages the Investigator Trust, a pooled fund anchored by wealthy investors in Perth’s western suburbs, has also likened the political stewardship of Australia to tyrannical Roman Emperor Nero fiddling while Rome burned.

In another typically forthright, wide-ranging and offbeat biannual newsletter for the fund’s investors, Packer & Co said “our politicians are concentrating on issues like dual citizenship and backpacker taxes, while Rome burns”.It is difficult to understand why the New South Wales Government is about to spend $2 billion of borrowed money on upgrading its Olympic and other colosseums, when this money would be better spent on new power stations and other infrastructure that would create long-term employment”.

Australia, it said, was “losing touch with the reality of the modern world”.

“The east coast property boom ... has lulled the bulk of Australia’s population into a weird sense of complacency. The problem with residential property booms is that the older generations are the winners as they sell out and retire with a big nest egg,” Packer & Co said.

“Sadly their children are the losers as they have to borrow an exorbitant amount to buy their homes, and then through taxes support the baby boomer generation in their old age.”

The fund manager also weighed into the lithium debate as it defended Investigator’s big exposure to major traditional oil and gas stocks.

“The public has been led to believe that battery-driven cars will soon dominate the planet and we will live in a beautifully clean and silent world,” it said.

But Packer & Co says that while batteries will inevitably play a major future role, practical barriers to mass adoption means that oil demand will continue to increase, partly driven by the growth in air travel.

“All the ducks are in line for a serious long-term boom in the oil price,” it said.

As at December 31, an increased 28 per cent (23 per cent a year ago) of Investigator’s $1.7 billion portfolio was invested in energy stocks, including US groups Hess and Anadarko and Russia’s Rosneft and Gazprom.

Packer & Co noted the energy sector was “extremely unpopular”, but insisted it also offered “rare fundamental value”.

Similarly, it has gone against the investment trend by backing US coal miners Arch Coal and Peabody, which account for about $138 million of funds.

The energy stocks, however, weighed on Investigator’s returns in 2017, offsetting growth in its industrial, technology and banking investments.

The fund returned 9.5 per cent for the year, its lowest result since 2011, undershooting the all-ordinaries accumulation index (12.5 per cent) and the MSCI world accumulation index (13.9 per cent).

Interesting article, so there's plenty of money to be made in fossil fuels, and for a long time - just not in Australia whilst we have out of touch subsidies? ... who'd have thought?Ouch

Our Government survive on gouging the Public.

The likes of AGL are purely their collection agency.

All good news for America.

Trump has taken the opportunity to rid himself of the Weather Delusions and is winning his way to make America greater again.

The hottest day on record?
Not 2010, BUT 1828 at a blistering 53.9 °C
Back before man-made climate change was frying Australia, when CO2 was around 300ppm, the continent savoured an ideal pre-industrial climate…….. RIGHT?
This is the kind of climate we are spending $10bn per annum to get back to….. Right again?
We are told today’s climate has more records and more extremes than times gone by, but the few records we have from the early 1800’s are eye-popping.
Things were not just hotter, but so wildly hot it burst thermometers.
The earliest temperature records we have show that Australia was a land of shocking heatwaves and droughts, except for when it was bitterly cold or raging in flood.

In other words, nothing has changed, except possibly things might not be quite so hot now!
Silliggy (Lance Pidgeon) has been researching records from early explorers and from newspapers.
What he’s uncovered is fascinating! It’s as if history is being erased!

For all that we hear about recent record-breaking climate extremes, records that are equally extreme, and sometimes even more so, are ignored.

In January 1896 a savage blast “like a furnace” stretched across Australia from east to west and lasted for weeks.
The death toll reached 437 people in the eastern states.
Newspaper reports showed that in Bourke the heat approached 120°F (48.9°C) on three days.
Links to documentary evidence (1)(2)(3)
The maximum at or above 102 degrees F (38.9°C) for 24 days straight!
Use the several links below to read the news reports at the time for yourself ……
1. By Tuesday Jan 14, people were reported falling deadin the streets.
2. Unable to sleep, people in Brewarrina walked the streets at night for hours, thermometers recorded109F at midnight.
3. Overnight, the temperature did not fall below 103°F.
4. On Jan 18 in Wilcannia, five deaths were recorded in one day, the hospitals were overcrowdedand reports said that “more deaths are hourly expected”.
5. By January 24, in Bourke, many businesses had shut down (almost everything bar the hotels).
6. Panic stricken Australians were fleeing to the hills in climate refugee trains.

As reported at the time, the government felt the situation was so serious that to save lives and ease the suffering of its citizens they added cheaper train services:
What I found most interesting about this was the skill, dedication and length of meteorological data taken in the 1800′s. When our climate is “the most important moral challenge” why is it there is so little interest in our longest and oldest data?
Who knew that one of the most meticulous and detailed temperature records in the world from the 1800′s comes from Adelaide, largely thanks to Sir Charles Todd.

The West Terrace site in Adelaide was one of the best in the world at the time, and provides accurate historic temperatures from “Australia’s first permanent weather bureau at Adelaide in 1856″.

Rainfall records even appear to go as far back as 1839. Lance Pidgeon went delving into the National Archives and was surprised at what he found.
The media are in overdrive, making out that “the extreme heat is the new normal” in Australia.
The Great Australian Heatwave of January 2013 didn’t push the mercury above 50C at any weather station in Australia, yet it’s been 50C (122F) and hotter in many inland towns across Australia over the past century.
See how many are in the late 1800′s and early to mid 1900′s.
You can’t blame those high records on man-made global warming!

Experience is something you gain a few minutes after you could have used it!

another climate story from  the dinosaur conspiracy theorists that cant seem to understand the difference between weather and climate change.
did trump write this story?
