Yet another great video with Dr. Peter Ridd in regards to coral reef growth and why no pacific islands have disappeared despite what the ignorant media states.

Even this guy is a credentialed scientist who knows what he is talking about, he made a YouTube video and is saying things that don't correlate with the insane apocalyptic garbage about man-made climate change I've been psychologically conditioned to just believe no matter how crazy it sounds. So therefore I must embarrass myself and claim that this guy doesn't know what he's talking about. That's how this klimate kult garbage works.

So some areas are having record cold snaps, yet apparently global temperature has increased.

So if most of the reporting thermometers are located in densely populated countries, then sparsely populated large Canada, which would have hardly any reporting thermometers, would account for less of the combined average temp world calculation.

To determine a true average temperature change for the planet, wouldn’t the reporting thermometers all need to be identical, and need to be spaced evenly lat/lon over the entire planet, for decades? Especially since weather moves around? (Could be satellites help with this)

Also, the majority of reporting thermometers are located in urban centres, that are in themselves micro-climates that are warmer.

As well, thermometer technology is vastly more sensitive than even thirty years ago, so this may also affect reported averages, when compared over decades.

Hopefully these variables are all accounted for, when calculating averages world temperature change.

Having flown over the arctic a few times, it’s interesting to view glaciers that have obviously been receding for hundreds and thousands of years, accelerating as more dark land gets exposed to sunlight, along with man’s input too. Much of the world’s land used to be covered in hundreds of feet of ice, including the Okanagan. Massive forest fires used to burn for years, so nothing new now, except that man has built in the forest, started many of the fires, and stripped away cooling vegetation. As well, cold air is drier, thus produces less precipitation. Another thing is that most volcanoes are on ocean bottoms, from where large amounts of CO2 bubbles up from.

I don’t doubt temperatures are increasing, but the whole equation is very complex, and even includes cyclical changes to the solar system, such as the Milankovitch cycles, that describe the collective effects of changes in the Earth's orbit movements on its climate over thousands of years, including ice-ages. Maybe we’re heading into an ice-age, but human activity is delaying it? Even our magnetic poles swap every few hundred years.

Man will continue to contribute to climate change, and this will escalate as human population continues exponential growth. Exponential population growth is the root of man’s contribution to climate change.

Happy Birthday consecutive daily record North Atlantic SSTA's. I guess we can Global SSTA's to that list too.

In a big win today against the forces of evil still pushing the Klimate kookery, the EU has backed down on pushing man-made climate change garbage due to the farmer protests. Well done guys and girls!!!
In a surprise move, a major European climate protection plan is shelved following farmer protests

BRUSSELS (AP) — A major European Union plan to fight climate change and better protect nature in the 27-nation bloc has been indefinitely postponed Monday, underscoring how farmers' protests sweeping the continent influence politics ahead of the June EU parliamentary elections.

The member states were supposed to give final approval to the bill on Monday following months of proceedings through the EU’s institutional maze. But what was supposed to be a mere rubber stamp has now turned into its possible perpetual shelving.

"It is clear to everyone that there is this huge deadlock. And it is not going to be easy to get out of this considering the upcoming elections,” said Dutch Climate Minister Rob Jetten.

The Nature Restoration plan is a key part of the EU’s European Green Deal that seeks to establish the world’s most ambitious climate and biodiversity targets and make the bloc the global point of reference on all climate issues.

The bill aims for Europe to become the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, demanding short and mid-term changes and sacrifices from all parts of society to reap the benefits in a generation.

Absolutely! I still don't trust the politicians. A contingent of farmers needs to remain to keep them from going all California.

Speaking of California, their residential electric cost is rising 3.2x faster than the rest of the states, plus all their renewables (25.7% W&S) did not result in a reduction of electric generation CO2 intensity. What a waste, and what a disaster. Imagine BC looks to California as an example.

Great graphic, if you're interested in keeping track of where we are and where we seem to be headed.

For those of you that might be keeping score at home, March came in at 1.68°C above the pre-industrial baseline with a 365 day running mean of about 1.58°C. That's 10 consecutive months of all time records and the 9th consecutive month breaking the 1.5°C Paris agreement goal.

For those of you that like to focus on something other than what's going on in the real world, here we have an article that suggests coral reefs respond to music - or something equally as absurd.
Underwater speakers that broadcast the hustle and bustle of thriving coral could bring life back to more damaged and degraded reefs that are in danger of becoming ocean graveyards, researchers say.

Anyone who uses "pre-industrial" as a setpoint from which to start measuring climate change is ignoring reality.

LOL. My thoughts too. Not to mention setting up underwater sound stages for healthy coral is yet another dumb and unwanted idea being sold to dumb politicians in response to misinformation. It is hilarious. The biggest problem faced by coral is predation and cyclones. Will the underwater speakers stop cyclones or parrotfish? They may even attract the parrotfish that eat coral. I wouldn't touch it with a 5 foot marine graduate.

Previous plans to raise coral in a nursery and plant them is also too hilarious.

No kidding. The Paris agreement had to pick a number though right and now that's some kind of golden rule to follow for activists and their lackeys. There's even people posting charts showing how much the average temperature is above a random meaningless number but not to raise alarm though, just personal interest (wink wink).

I was sure where to put this, as it could also be in the "CBC" thread, as this article is just as much about how stupid and bad wind power is as is the discussion about how Australia's government broadcaster is just as bad or worse when it comes to terrible and biased reporting to be as "woke" as possible. I'm going with this thread for now!

Basically, this farmer in Australia wanted to talk about how bad a wind power project is going to be for the local farmers on ABC (Australia Broadcasting Corporation), and guess what, those idiots went and deliberately edited out all of the "bad" stuff about the wind power project from what the guy was saying. Anything and everything to try and keep the Klimate Kook narrative (wind power "good", everything else "bad") going. What total fools.

Would anyone expect any less of the CBC though? And they wonder why people say that they don't "trust" these government broadcasters any more??
Farmer Grant Piper slams ABC for 'hiding the truth' about wind turbines, claiming it selectively edited a 7.30 story

A farmer has accused the ABC of selectively editing an interview to cut out the real issues he has with wind turbines in his region.

Grant Piper, a cattle farmer in the central west of NSW near the city of Dubbo, said an episode of the ABC's 7.30 that was broadcast in early February left out what he most wanted to show, which is the extent of the encroachment by wind farms.

Dissatisfied with what was left on the cutting room floor, Mr Piper filmed a video a couple of days after the broadcast to show the spot he had taken the program makers to so they could understand the magnitude of a proposed wind farm near his property.

Mr Piper said two wind farms with over 200 turbines each towering over 200m would hem in his property.

During the segment Mr Piper was given around a minute to explain his position, with his contribution spliced in at three points of the segment's seven-minute run time.

Here is an interesting article in regards to recent anomalous Atlantic ocean warming giving us the recent higher global temperature anomaly. The rapid rise in ocean temperature is thought to be geological in nature.

Evidence Shows That Geological Features Play Major Role In Recent Ocean Heat Uptake.
