    I am not a 'Grennie' to my mind they do far more harm than any other party could ever, with concepts that will destroy us over time.

    But I do believe in conservation, we are planting millions of trees here in Oz which is good, but then we take in nuclear waste and burry it in the outback.
    Each piece is about the size of a house brick and goes deep down.

    More could and should be done to protect the environment but there is a lack of political will from both sides to tackle the problem in a sensible and organized manner.
    While so much rhetoric goes on about climate change without the public having the right of reply to those who preach it, persons such as I will always be very skeptical about what is said.

    Too many conflicting arguments make it impossible to come to a reasonable conclusion.

    Back in the 80' we had a country city that was fully solar powered, all the street lights, parking meters, signage etc powered in this manner.
    Now none.
    I asked a local why, unreliable, too costly to maintain and restrictive times of use even though they did have some battery back up.
    I know they have improved since then but the problem is reliability will all renewable energy.

    Coal mines here will continue to be built as they provide both employment and export earnings.

    As previously mentioned here in Oz coming weekend a Feral erection, so called as we have the biggest bunch of p***s standing you have ever seen.
    One of the major subjects is 'Climate Change', so one of the weekend papers conducted a survey of over 1,000 voters on the subject here in Victoria.

    The results quite amazing showing just how uneducated so many are.

    Over 75% had no clue as to the Climate of the state, which is according to senior climatologists temperate.

    Most though maybe tropical or sub tropical.

    The greater majority think the weather is the climate and cannot distinguish between the two.

    But then who could blame them, the opposition keeps on about it but without any details of what they mean.
    State scientists are the same and like all parliamentarians will not talk about it.
    It has become some sort of secret as to what it is and what it does.

    With such an approach there is little wonder the populous have no concept of what is going on.
    Talk of reducing emissions to 25% of those of 2005 but again no detail of what that means.

    So what exactly do they mean by 'Climate Change"?
    Unless, and until they can be decisive in the meaning it is little wonder so many do not believe all they hear about it.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    If politicians and other were truthful about what they want to achieve then it is just possible some support from the likes of many dubbed as 'climate deniers' may change.

    But there are too many sides to the argument and very little evidence of some common ground.
    The claim tides are rising as an example.

    I have just about every two weeks visited some part of the Victorian coast line over the past 40 years.
    There is no evidence that high and low tide marks have changed.

    My house is right on the dge of the Quayside, 10 feet from the high tide, the tides are still the same height as they were over 20 years ago.

    Where is this metre of extra water coming from ?

    Do we really need to see for ourselves impending dangers, before they become believable.

    A four minute warning would leave little chance to act - nuclear wise.

    The floods not apparent today, may just kill our children etc.

    Not preaching, just think it is worth giving some thought to.

    Speaking the other day with a pilot I know, he has flown just about every country there is in al different circumstances.

    The three corner stones he calls them of the Climate debate.

    Temperature, Co2 levels and seal levels.

    In his opinion are no different now than some 40 years ago when he first flew.

    Prior to 2000 when Gore lost the election we heard very little of this.

    10,000 years ago, Boltonistan was under 200 feet of ice, Now it has gone,
    What caused it to go??

    No cars, no planes, no industry. just nature.

    The South Pole used to be in Africa and the Antarctic Continent was Rain Forests and tropical. That is why it has loads of oil and gas.
    The Earth wobbles over the ages .
    Can the Greens stop it ???Why is everyone of the Greens trying to stop the Natural changes, They have no chance It is just a political ploy to get themselves into Parliament and make plenty of money, only the gullible will follow them.

    If you have a few spare minutes, calculate the Total surface area of all the seas and Oceans on earth in square Meters, and then by one meter deep, I did it once on here, and then when you have discovered how many Cubic meters in Trillions, Trillions and Trillions . then find out where the water is coming from.
    The earth has the same amount of water on it as it had Billions of years ago.
    You cannot make water, You can turn it into steam, you can turn it into ice, but you cannot make any more.

    Off to my breakfast.

    Everything in the world spins on money, i think i have posted before, every time i pick up a paper or magazine, it contains loads of glossy fliers advertising various things, obviously the companies get a tax break for advertising, and those fliers go straight in the bin. The postman drops the same fliers through my letterbox every day, straight in the bin again the postal firm are paid to do that by the companies, every one of those flyers was part of a tree. Stop the tax allowance on the use of flyers, and keep the trees in place instead.
