Yes. It can and does. Frequently.
We blame Global Warming. Also, Tony Abbott.
So wander over, offer your congratulations and thanks to Anthony Watts for his tireless efforts to bring some sanity – and SCIENCE – back to the discussion of nature, weather, technology and
global warming climate change, check out Christopher Monckton’s guest post Hurrah for 8 orders of magnitude! and make sure to have a browse through some of the WUWT classics reposted here.
As Tim Blair noted in his recent post PEAK LOVE, “Climate panic is in decline…” And though the self-inflicted damage of the content of the Climategate emails and many of the stupid hyperbole-ridden ham-handed advertising and “awareness” campaigns by the Warmies themselves (and their Love Media enablers) are partly to credit for the loss of credibility of the Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming’s Gonna Kill Us All® movement, much credit must really go to the big guns of the bloggy “Deniosphere” such as Anthony Watts, Andrew Bolt, James Delingpole and our own Blogfather Tim Blair.
OK, so PM Gillard reckons The Debate We Never Had™ is over, but that doesn’t mean – oh no siree – that folks aren’t standing up to have their say.
A townhall meeting in Brisbane:
Mr Hockey said merchants at a Brisbane market this morning told him they would not be able to pass on the cost of an estimated 10 per cent rise in electricity without sacking staff.
“Time and time again, as we went past every store, all the workers were coming out and saying ‘you have to stop this tax’,” he said.
Currently watching Gasland on youtube. It’s all about how bad fracking is. Even Alan Jones doesn’t seem to like it.
Also watched a reply on youtube from the gas industry saying it’s basically OK.
Hmm. Watching people being able to light their tap water on fire looks pretty bad, to say the least…
A few readers and writers here are involved in the mining industry (right?). Is anyone able to give us a basic run down on whether fracking really is a total disaster the environment or whether it’s the best thing since bourbon whisky was invented… or somewhere in between?
In return, tits!
Thanks in advance.
A hot redhead explains in 6 minutes what an entire night of documentary and lecture watching does.
Angus Dei would be proud.
