That Irritating Nagging Never Stops!

There’s no place to hide from this alarmist bilge!

January 31 2009

Andrew R. went to OPSM for new glasses this week and was asked to read this
chart to check his eyesight:

In case you need glasses yourself, that newspaper extract reads as follows:

The planet’s rapid warming has pushed temperatures to their hottest level in
nearly 12,000 years and within a hair’s breadth of a million years, a study
by the US space agency showed yesterday.

Global warming, which has added 0.2C a decade over the past 30 years, has
caused temperatures to reach and now pass through the warmest levels in the
current interglacial period, which has lasted almost 12,000 years, according
to the study led by James Hansen, a leading climatologist at NASA’s Goddard
Institute for Space Studies.

The nagging never stops, does it?

This is a list of massacres of Aboriginal Australians.
.
 For discussion  of the historical arguments around these conflicts
see the articles on  the History Wars and the Black armband view of
history, plus the  section on impact of European settlement in the
article on Indigenous  Australians.

A massacre is also referred to as a mass murder. It means the act of
killing a large number indiscriminately and cruelly.

[edit] 1800s

    * The Black War refers to a period of intermittent conflict
between the British colonists and Aborigines in Van Diemen’s Land
(now  Tasmania) in the early years of the 1800s. The conflict has
been  described as a genocide resulting in the elimination of the full-
blood  Tasmanian Aboriginal population,[citation needed] though there
are  presently many thousands of individuals with degrees of
Tasmanian  Aboriginal background. The culmination of this period was
the forcible
removal of the survivors, in the 1830s, to Flinders Island in Bass
Strait.[citation needed] The specially built settlement was not
suitable, with terrible living conditions and many died from disease
introduced by Europeans.[citation needed] Later they were moved to a
settlement at Oyster Cove south of Hobart. Some of the descendants of
the Tasmanian Aborigines still live on Flinders Island and nearby
Cape  Barren Island.

[edit] 1820s

    * 1824 Bathurst massacre: Following the killing of seven
 Aboriginal people around Bathurst, New South Wales, martial law was
declared and many Aboriginal people were killed.[1][2]
    * 1828, February 10 – Cape Grim massacre, Cape Grim, Tasmania[3]
[4]
[5]

[edit] 1830s

    * 1830 Fremantle, Western Australia,: The first official
‘punishment raid’ on Aboriginal people in Western Australia, led by
Captain Irwin took place in May 1830. A detachment of soldiers led by
Irwin attacked an Aboriginal encampment north of Fremantle in the
belief that it contained men who had ‘broken into and plundered the
house of a man called Paton’ and killed some poultry. Paton had
called  together a number of settlers who, armed with muskets, set
after the  Aborigines and came upon them not far from the home. ‘The
tall savage  who appeared the Chief showed unequivocal gestures of
defiance and  contempt’ and was accordingly shot. Irwin stated, "This
daring and  hostile conduct of the natives induced me to seize the
opportunity to  make them sensible to our superiority, by showing how
severely we  could retaliate their aggression." In actions that
followed over the  next few days, more Aborigines were killed and
wounded.[6][7]

    * 1833-34 Convincing Ground massacre of Gunditjmara: On the shore
near Portland, Victoria was one of the largest recorded massacres in
Victoria. Whalers and the local Kilcarer Gunditjmara people disputed
rights to a beached whale carcass.[8]

    * 1834: Battle of Pinjarra, Western Australia: Official records
state 14 Aboriginal people killed, but other accounts put the figure
much higher.[9][10]

    * 1838 Myall Creek massacre – 10 June: 28 people killed at Myall
Creek near Inverell, New South Wales. This was the first Aboriginal
massacre for which European settlers were tried. Eleven men were
charged with murder but acquitted. A new trial was held and there
were  seven men charged with the murder of one Aboriginal child. They
were  found guilty and hanged.

    * 1838 Waterloo Creek massacre: A Sydney mounted police detachment
attacked an encampment of Kamilaroi people at a place called Waterloo
Creek in remote bushland.[11]

    * 1838 Benalla (Benalta run – musk duck): Grantville Stapylton
named the river ‘Broken’. In April of that year a party of some 18
men, in the employ of George Faithful and William Faithfull, were
searching out new land to the south of Wangaratta. Then, in the
vicinity of, or possibly on, the present townsite of Benalla, it is
alleged that a large number of Aborigines attacked the party’s camp.
At least one Koori and somewhere between eight and thirteen Europeans
died in what became known as the Faithfull Massacre. Local reprisals
lasted a number of years, resulting in the deaths of up to 100
Aborigines. The reason for the attack is unclear although some sources
claim that the men took shots at local Aborigines and generally
provoked them.[12] It also seems they were camping on a hunting ground

Additional murders of these people occurred at Warangaratta on the
Ovens River, at Murchison (led by the native police under Dana and in
the company of the young Edward Curr, who could not bring himself to
discuss what he witnessed there other than to say he took issue with
the official reports) Other incidents were recorded Mitchelton and
Toolamba.

    This "hunting ground" would have been a ceremonial ground probably
called a ‘Kangaroo ground’. Hunting grounds were all over so not
something that would instigate an attack. The colonial government
decided to "open up" the lands south of Yass after the Faithful
Massacre and bring them under British rule. This was as much to try
and protect the Aboriginal people from reprisals as to open up new
lands for the colonists. The Aboriginal people were (supposedly)
protected under British law.

    * May-June 1839 Campaspe Plains massacre, Campaspe Creek, Central
Victoria, killing Daung Wurrung and Dja Dja Wurrung people.[13]
    * Mid 1839 Murdering Gully massacre near Camperdown, Victoria
wiping out the Tarnbeere Gundidj clan of the Djargurd Wurrung people.
[14]

    * 1830s—1840s Wiradjuri Wars: Clashes between European settlers
and Wiradjuri were very violent, particularly around the Murrumbidgee.
The loss of fishing grounds and significant sites and the killing of
Aboriginal people was retaliated through attacks with spears on cattle
and stockmen. In the 1850s there were still corroborees around Mudgee
but there were fewer clashes. Known ceremony continued at the
Murrumbidgee into the 1890s. European settlement had taken hold and
the Aboriginal population was in temporary decline.

[edit] 1840s

    * 1840-1850 Gippsland massacres of the Gunai people in East
Gippsland, Victoria, Australia in response to their resistance to
European settlement on their land. The real death toll is unclear as
few records exist or were made at the time. From available evidence
(letters and diaries), it appears:[15]
          o 1840 – Nuntin- unknown number killed by Angus McMillan’s
men
          o 1840 – Boney Point – "Angus McMillan and his men took a
heavy toll of Aboriginal lives"
          o 1841 – Butchers Creek – 30-35 shot by Angus McMillan’s men
          o 1841 – Maffra – unknown number shot by Angus McMillan’s
men
          o 1842 – Skull Creek – unknown number killed
          o 1842 – Bruthen Creek – "hundreds killed"
          o 1843 – Warrigal Creek – between 60 and 180 shot by Angus
McMillan and his men
          o 1844 – Maffra – unknown number killed
          o 1846 – South Gippsland – 14 killed
          o 1846 – Snowy River – 8 killed by Captain Dana and the
Native Police Corps[16]
          o 1846-47 – Central Gippsland – 50 or more shot by armed
party hunting for a white woman supposedly held by Aborigines; no such
woman was ever found.
          o 1850 – East Gippsland – 15-20 killed
          o 1850 – Murrindal – 16 poisoned

    * 1839 or 1840 The Blood Hole massacre Middle Creek Moonambel –
Dja Dja Wurrung people.[17]
    * 1840 – 8 March – The Fighting Hills massacre at the Hummocks
near Wando Vale – Konongwootong gundidj clan, Jardwadjali people.
Committed by William Whyte, George Whyte, Pringle Whyte, James Whyte,
John Whyte, and 3 employees: Daniel Turner, Benjamin Wardle, William
Gillespie.[18]
    * 1840 – 1 April – Fighting Waterholes massacre near Konongwootong
reservoir – Konongwootong gundidj clan, Jardwadjali people. This
second massacre of numerous old men, women and children is thought to
have wiped out the clan. Committed by Station hands, employees of the
Whyte brothers.[18]

    * 1841 Wonnerup Massacre: George Layman was speared by a Wardandi
(from Wardan = Ocean) man, Gaywer, at Wonnerup House, Capel, Western
Australia when he refused to release an Aboriginal woman held at the
house. This led to the Wonnerup Massacre where white settlers rode
abreast through the tuart forest killing over 250 people on their
tribal land. The dead are reputed to be buried at Ludlow Forest,
currently being mined for mineral sands by Cable Sands.[19]

    * 1841 Rufus River Massacre – August: 35 Maraura people killed in
a two-day conflict with a number of police and volunteers from
Adelaide after sheep and cattle were stolen and several months of
violent tension.

    * 1842 Deen Maar – Eumerella Wars took place over 20 years in the
mid-1800s. The remains of people involved in the conflict are at Deen
Maar.

    * 1843 – Western District, Victoria – 17 shot by Captain Dana and
Native Police Corps[20]

    * 1846 (or 1843) Richmond River massacre – January: 100 people
killed at Richmond River, New South Wales.

    * 1846 Blanket Bay, Cape Otway, Victoria – August: Rape and

Australian economy set to shrink says International Monetary Fund (IMF)

THANK

YOU

LABOUR!

http://www.news.com.au/business/story/0,27753,24988761-31037,00.html

THE Australian economy will contract by 0.2 per cent this year, according to the
International Monetary Fund (IMF).

It is understood the IMF briefed journalists in Washington this morning,
Australian time.

Officials emphasised that the margin of error meant they were, to all intents
and purposes, forecasting “close to zero” growth.

They also emphasised the uncertainty and downside risks facing the global economy.

It is understood the IMF said it would be best to allow the economy’s automatic
stabilisers to work, which means allowing tax revenue to fall and spending to
rise in difficult times.

This can lead to budget deficits.

In terms of the action governments can take to stimulate their economies, the
IMF said spending was preferable to tax cuts.

The officials said Australia remained relatively well-placed, in terms of fiscal
and monetary policy options, to face the economic problems.

The IMF issued its latest world economic outlook last week, in which it tipped
the global economy would grow by just 0.5 per cent this year, the lowest rate
since World War II.

Advanced economies would generally shrink by about two per cent, according to
that forecast.


"The Labour Party is corrupt beyond redemption!"

"Silly old bugger!"
  – Well known ACTU pisspot and sometime Labour prime minister Bob Hawke
responding to a pensioner who dared ask for more.

"God save the Queen because nothing will save the governor general!"

appointee John Kerr.

Other tragic and absurd examples of the neo-Liberal delusion

If the ordinary citizens loved John Howard they
will be on sacred ground with Yiddish Malcolm. It
will take years for the airhead celebrities to
rebadge and sell the John Howard WorkChoices
Liberal Party to Aussies. John Howard liked to
claim that mutual obligation also requires that
Australians who have done well in our society give
something back. Merchant Puffball says he will
remain true to his many friends in the Jewish
community. The wholesome Aussie dullards pay the
price. They always have done. Unlike real life,
The Yiddish Banker will invoke John Howard to
justify destroying the future and replacing it
with more aid and support for Israel. Despite the
failures of the John Howard GST Liberal Party, the
retarded sports celebrities will go into their
various acts when Zion’s Aussie champion gives
them the signal. Their bovine condition will help
the Liberal Party drone.

Why Climate Models Fail

Ken Gregory

December 29, 2008

QUOTE: This data supports Miskowski’s theory of the greenhouse effect.
Miskolcki shows the standard theory uses inappropriate boundary conditions.
When real boundary conditions are used, he shows that the atmosphere
maintains a saturated greenhouse effect, controlled by water vapor content.

QUOTE: In summary, I think there are two main reasons climate models fail:

1. water vapour causes a negative feedback, not a large positive feedback,

2. clouds cause a negative feedback, not a positive feedback.

The IPCC used the CO2 forcing of 3.71 W/m2. They multiply this by a feedback
factor of 3.08, which boosts the total forcing due to CO2 to 11.4 W/m2.
Monckton’s summary shows that 76% of this feedback factor is due to clouds
and water vapour (with lapse rate change).

But both of these feedbacks are the wrong sign!

Roy Spencer shows that clouds cause a negative feedback, not positive, based
on satellite data. He shows that modelers have interpreted cloud changes as
a feedback, instead of a cause of temperature change. This reversal of cause
and effect makes cloud seem like a positive feedback, when they actually
cause a negative feedback.

But more importantly, the IPCC assumes that water vapour causes the largest
positive feedback, but the Hartcode simulation runs using the NOAA water
humidity data shows that water vapour causes a large negative feedback.

You have seen my graph of relative humidity before which is linked here.

All climate models assume that relative humidity remains approximately
constant with global warming. So if CO2 initially causes a small warming,
this causes an increase in water content in the models, resulting is a large
positive feedback But the data shows a 21% drop of relative humidity at
about 9 km altitude, just where the predicted hot spot is missing, directly
contradicting the models.

The Hartcode simulation makes no assumptions of how the greenhouse effect
works, or how much temperatures changes with optical depth changes. (Optical
depth is related the surface radiation flux Su by Su = OLR(1+tau
+exp(-tau))/2, where tau = optical depth). Here is a graph showing the
optical depth changes over the last 60 years (water vapour and CO2), and the
change due to CO2 only.

 Look at the pink curve, CO2 only. This is with water vapour held constant
and CO2 only changing. The trend (orange line) shows an increase of 1.152
10-4 X 60 years = +0.0069, or about +0.37% in 60 years, confirming our
belief the CO2 has a tiny direct effect on temperature.

The blue curve shows the optical depth including CO2 and water vapour. Note
that water vapour varies much more that CO2. But instead of causing a huge
positive feedback, water caused a strong negative feedback, and reduced the
optical depth trend (green line) to 2.58 10-5 X 60 years = + 0.0015, or
about 0.083% in 60 years.

This means that water vapour has offset 78% of the greenhouse effect of CO2
change over the last 60 years. This is very significant! Note also that
there has been a dramatic drop in water vapour at all altitudes in 2008,
which is not included in the above calculations. I do recognize that the
early NOAA data might be less accurate than more recent data, but this is
what the data shows.

This data supports Miskowski’s theory of the greenhouse effect. Miskolcki
shows the standard theory uses inappropriate boundary conditions. When real
boundary conditions are used, he shows that the atmosphere maintains a
saturated greenhouse effect, controlled by water vapor content.

I encourage you to review this article, based on a draft by Dr. Noor van
Andel.

In summary, I think there are two main reasons climate models fail:

1. water vapour causes a negative feedback, not a large positive feedback,

2. clouds cause a negative feedback, not a positive feedback.

Yet Another AGW Skeptic

January 28 2009

Yet another sceptic here, and one who taught NASA alarmist James Hansen
everything he’s forgotten about climate:

Retired senior NASA atmospheric scientist, Dr. John S. Theon, the former
supervisor of James Hansen, NASA’s vocal man-made global warming fear
soothsayer, has now publicly declared himself a skeptic and declared that
Hansen "embarrassed NASA" with his alarming climate claims and said Hansen
was "was never muzzled."

Theon joins the rapidly growing ranks of international scientists abandoning
the promotion of man-made global warming fears.

"I appreciate the opportunity to add my name to those who disagree that
global warming is man made," Theon wrote to the Minority Office at the
Environment and Public Works Committee on January 15, 2009.

Why is the earth growing cooler while the sun is growing hotter.  ERRR
maybe CO2 HMMMM!!!
**********************************************

The earth is growing cooler because the sun is growing cooler!

, Global warming could unleash ocean 'dead zones': study

Global warming could unleash ocean ‘dead zones’: study
This news article seems to claim algae are a problem

When I see lack of algae as the cause , and algae as the only cure

WHY do so many fail to see the decreasing iron levels leading to
reduced algae growth is the real cause of global warming

it is as plain as the nose on your face yet  most experts refuse to
even notice , algae remove carbon and add oxygen , except in certain
abnormal examples

Algae deriving energy both from photosynthesis and uptake of organic
carbon

All algae have photosynthetic machinery ultimately derived from the
Cyanobacteria, and so produce oxygen as a by-product of photosynthesis

PARIS (AFP) — Global warming may create "dead zones" in the ocean
that  would be devoid of fish and seafood and endure for up to two
millennia, according to a study published on Sunday.

Its authors say deep cuts in the world’s carbon emissions are needed
to brake a trend capable of wrecking the marine ecosystem and
depriving future generations of the harvest of the seas.

In a study published online by the journal Nature Geoscience,
scientists in Denmark built a computer model to simulate climate
change over the next 100,000 years.

At the heart of their model are two well-used scenarios which use
atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide (CO2), the main greenhouse gas,
as an indicator of temperature rise.

Under the worst scenario, CO2 concentrations would rise to 1,168
parts  per million (ppm) by 2100, or about triple today’s level.

Under the more optimistic model, CO2 would reach 549 ppm by 2100, or
roughly 50 percent more than today.

The temperature rise that either would yield depends on several
factors: when the peak in carbon emissions is reached and how quickly
it falls, and whether the warming unleashes natural triggers, or
tipping points, that enhance or prolong the warming in turn.

Taking such factors into account, the scientists predict a possible
rise of around five to seven degrees Celsius (nine to 16 degrees
Fahrenheit) over pre-industrial times under the worst scenario. Under
the other scenario, there would be warming of roughly between two to
four C (3.7-7.2 F).

Either scenario spells bad news for the ocean, said Jens Olaf Pepke
Pedersen, a physicist at the Technical University of Denmark.

Under the worst scenario, warmer seas and a slowdown of ocean
circulation would lower marine oxygen levels, creating "dead zones"
that could not support fish, shellfish and other higher forms of
marine life — and may not revive for 1,500 to 2,000 years.

"They would start slowly by the end of this century, it’s not
something that would happen tomorrow or in the near future but over
the next few generations," Pedersen told AFP.

"But because of the inertia in the ocean, once you have the process
going, it’s not feasible to reverse it again just like that, so it
would continue for hundreds of years.

"Even if after a hundred years, if you stopped all carbon emissions,
the ocean would still need hundreds of more years to cool. These low-
oxygen areas would continue to expand and they would peak around 2,000
years from now. The ocean would then slowly recover as it cools."

Even under the less gloomy scenario, there would still be
significant,  long-term expansion of oxygen-starved zones.

Marine "dead zones" already exist today, in shallow areas next to the
coast, where runoff from agricultural fertiliser causes an explosion
in oxygen-gobbling algae.

Wide oxygen depletion of the ocean, though, poses a far greater
threat, touching at the heart of biodiversity, the paper warns.

Around 250 million years ago, a chemical change of the seas led to a
massive wipeout of marine species.

Lead scientist Gary Shaffer of the Niels Bohr Institute at the
University of Copenhagen said it was unclear, in the grim light of
this study, whether future generations could look to the oceans as a
major reserve of food.

"Reduced fossil-fuel emissions are needed over the next few
generations to limit ongoing ocean oxygen depletion and acidification
and their long-term adverse effects," he said.

Since 1900, the mean global atmospheric temperature has risen by 0.8
C  (1.44 F) the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
said in 2007. It forecast warming of 1.8-4.0 C (3.2-7.2 F) by 2100
over 1980-99 levels, but said "positive feedback" triggers that could
amplify warming remain unclear.
