we are being conned. we have to suffer higher electricity prices because
'evil' coal fired power stations are 'destroying the planet', while at
the same time exporting our coal to China, who build two new coal
powered plants a week. we have the cheapest coal in the world, or at
least among the cheapest. we could have cheap electricity except for the
greeny agenda. we would only need two or three plants which would not
make a poofteeth difference to global pollution.

Do tell.

In your response, address the following:

* Cite your climate science credentials, that we may accept your
hypothesis as valid.
* Cite your climate change hypothesis that explains the reasons behind
the present warming trend.
* Cite your climate change hypothesis that proves Arrhenius' theory on
human induced climate change. A theory, BTW, that was presented back in
1899 and has NEVER been successfully challenged. NOT ONCE.

None of that matters, for the far right loonies it's like a religion -
they have faith that it's not real - and faith requires no evidence and
any evidence to the contrary is a conspiracy of some sort. The lefty
loonies think we can stop using oil tomorrow and we can all live on
avocados while flying the rainbow flag, dancing around in Birkenstocks
and defacing artworks while living on the dole. They're even worse.

Even most center right people accept climate change is real and there is
certainly a real debate to be had about how we go about reducing
emissions and addressing global warming - but IMO the ship has sailed
and while also doing what we can to reduce our impact we need to
seriously look at addressing what is to come in terms of changes to the
planet. It's not going away so we need to deal with it.

Mind you the next mass extinction event is likely to be caused at the
press of a button rather than climate change the way things are going in
the world.

Coal is going, regardless of politics. In WA, the mine supplying the
power station has gone bankrupt, and in spring and autumn, it is not
needed anyway, due to huge amount of solar power. In the eastern states,
the machines are old and breaking down. Nobody is going piss away money
to keep them going another 50 years.

neither. it's a hoax in the sense that we are being lied to, to make us
do things here in Australia that wont make a scrap of difference to
global warming. examples.. reduce farming because cow farts supposedly
cause global warming. ride bikes, don't drive cars, because car exhausts
cause global warming. install stupid visually polluting wind turbines,
the manufacture, upkeep, and replacement of which is environmentally
polluting, and pay higher electricity prices for the privilege. use
electric cars when their production is also environmentally polluting,
etc., etc., but having said that, I have no great interest in the
debate. I'm too old to care anymore. I just object to stupid decisions
based on an agenda, that have no benefit to us and are detrimental to
our lifestyle or finances.

I saw an interesting video showing how many supposedly disastrous
climate predictions have not come true, but I haven't been able to find
it again. so I question how much about the current scenario is fact or
fiction. the latest nonsense I just saw is that humans breathing is

Odd. Climate predictions made in the early 80s have certainly come true.
True though, getting rid of a billion or so humans will have a
noticeable effect and, between covid and recent wars, we might soon
approach that number. Unfortunately those events hinder the world's
efforts in growing food. Might be a problem down the track.

I would suggest the best course of action is to implement measures to
offset the effects of what's causing the problem, so we don't have to
change things/our lifestyle. and before you say "like what?'" that's for
the scientists and engineers to discover.

I've never studied the issue, like you obviously have. as I've said, I
just object to being told I have to do this or that, or not do this or
that, to 'save the planet' when what we're told won't make any
difference. it's been said that if every car in Australia disappeared
overnight, it would have absolutely no effect on global warming. it's
the big polluters, India, China, and the USA who need to take severe
measures, since they can make a difference, not us.

His formula doesnt even come close to predicting the change

That Arrhenius' formula has accurately predicted the change

in atmospheric CO2 levels we have measured.

And that anything this country does will have
any measurable effect on world temperatures.

And that EVERYONE has to do something.

How odd that we have in fact seen sweet fuck all change

https://www.eia.gov/energyexplained/gasoline/gasoline-and-the-environment.php

"Gasoline is a toxic and highly flammable liquid. The vapors given off
when gasoline evaporates and the substances produced when gasoline is
burned (carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, and
unburned hydrocarbons) contribute to air pollution. Burning gasoline
also produces carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas."

**Great idea. Which planets do you have in mind?

Venus? Average daytime (and night time) temperature is 464 degrees C.
Mars? Average daytime temperature is 35 degrees C Average night time
temperature is -60 degrees C. Oh yeah, bugger all atmosphere too.

BTW: How do you propose to send large numbers of people to other planets?

Let's do some rough maths:

The only US built vehicle to visit another body in our Solar system was
the mighty Saturn V rocket. It was able to carry 3 people to the Moon.
At launch, the Saturn V burned 20 Tonnes of fossil fuel every SECOND. At
launch, the Saturn V weighed around 3,000 Tonnes. Approximately half
that mass was fuel, which was either fossil fuel (kerosene) or hydrogen.

FOR THREE PEOPLE!

Got any other ideas?

Why?

You like making grand claims such as this Trev, but never go into detail
as to why.

Now's your chance....

ROTFL :)

When the Victorian government privatised the SEC, the Gas and Fuel
Board, and the MMBW, they were all *losing* money. As was typical of
such government operations, they were all massively over staffed,
ridiculously unproductive and were stifling building development. The
Kennet Government, who were forced to sell them after the previous Labor
government had virtually sent the state broke and sold off everything
else (Geez, anyone see a pattern here), could only do so after giving an
assurance to the buyers that they could have a free hand in sacking
thousands of staff and turning what were unprofitable government money
pits into profitable private entities.

And they did.
