    The greater majority of people cannot distinquish between weather and climate, two separate entities.

    For example the climate of UK is temperate, that is seasons of wet and dry, hot and cold. Varying temperatures with some big varies at time and varies in hours of light and dark.

    Singapore is tropical, a wet season and a dry one, little difference in temperature and also in hours of light and dark.

    Weather is due to many factors, sun spots can make a big difference, the temperature of the gulf stream and many other factors.

    NASA say the global average temp has dropped by some 0.6 of a degree and will continue over the next decade with a total drop of about 1.2 degrees.

    But hey, never let a good story get in the way of the truth, got to have the population thinking the same way as those in power, and this whole thing is more to do with that than any climate.

    Some years ago an ex banker told me of the CHINDIA syndrome.

    The rise of China and India, something the west will go to any lengths to stop.

    China is now officially the richest nation on earth according to latest figures, our Donald is not happy with that.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Tassie has been having gale force winds for weeks now. Some areas have had snow. We have had rain but curiously mostly on the north west the east coast is largely still in drought!! Go figure it is only a little island.
    The larger area of Hobart is going to have water restrictions so that the east coast farmers can irrigate their crops.
    Before we came here 10yrs ago we had been living in the Mornington Peninsula Victoria. At that time we had a long dry period and the dams were down to 29% so we had stage 3a restrictions imposed.
    The first thing we did on arrival in Tas. was install a water tank to the amusement of the neighbours. Now I have added several dustbins to catch the overflow, having not run out of water yet for the garden. We are on town water but that is quite expensive. Tank water is great for clothes too, makes them cleaner and softer.
    They say in Tassie be prepared for 4 seasons in one day, seems 4 micro climates as well these days.

    Here in Boltonistan , the climate, weather hasnt changed one bit.
    Summer came, all the flowers came out, my apple trees had a good crop, including my fig and Victoria Plum tree,
    September to October the leaves began to turn to gold,
    End of October and November the leaves fell off the trees,
    Now it is December approaching winter, the last five days including today cold and frosty but blue skies and sun. It is beautiful,
    A PERFECT SUMMER, AUTUMN AND NOW WINTER. so what is the problem???????

    We are being brainwashed. All our time and energy is being wasted because some daft green and polly is telling us we are doomed.
    Brian.

    PS Maybe this is why all the migrants want to live in Boltonistan.

    Decade of 'exceptional' heat likely to be hottest on record, experts say

    “This [temperature rise] does not simply mean slightly warmer summers, it means an increased frequency of extreme weather globally – droughts, heatwaves, flooding and changing patterns in the frequency and intensity of tropical cyclones.
    “These impacts are real and happening now and place huge pressures on communities and countries – put simply, these impacts make for a more unstable world, and are already having profound impacts on our ecosystems and biodiversity.”

    Victoria, that is interesting we have three tanks on our property.

    Saw a bit on TV news last night about the climate from one of the many global climate societies.
    According to them by the end of the century we will have 60 degrees as a normal summer temp????????????
    But of course this is only a computer prediction, and depending what info you put in and how you treat it will determine the outcome.

    Bit off as NASA tells us the temp over the past two years has declined by 0.6 of a degree and that Co2 levels they believe has peaked and will decline from here..

    But hey, why let the truth stand in the way of a good story??
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    The Guardian newspaper is a left wing pinko paper.
    It refers Arctic ice melting in September, This is after a summer of 24 hours a day sunshine.
    No one takes films or photos in January in the Arctic when it is frozen.
    "Fake! this last summer was the hottest on record," here we had 8 days of hot sunny weather, the rest of summer was a usual mix of sun and rain as it is usual for our summers, , indeed on several days in summer I had my gas heating on as it was cold.
    The Fires in Australia , it was reported on TV here that a 19 year old Fireman set some fires and then went on his engine to try and put it out.
    We had fires on the Moors around Bolton last year, Global warming???? No, three lads were eventually caught setting fire to the moorland.

    Going back through the history of the earth we have had many climate changes,
    The last one was the Ice Age, The sea was frozen, you could walk across the North Sea and English Channel to europe.
    Bolton where I live now was under 200 feet of Ice. and that was only 10,000 years ago.
    WHY DID IT ALL MELT???, My little car didn't do it.
    Before that Ice age, Bolton was a Tropical place, with huge rain forests, That is why we sit on a lot of coal, oil and gas fields. WHY DID IT FREEZE OVER???? My little car didnt do it.
    So why do I have to pay 273 road tax ,
    Can any intelligent person tell me what they do with that money, ???
    It used to be for road repairs and building new roads, which are now in a terrible state, . So what happens to my Tax???

    So "climate change" is just an excuse to increase Taxation, So do not be fooled.

    Greta Thunberg, the 16 year old kid who knows Everything about the climate, more than anyone else on earth hitched a ride across the Atlantic on a catamaran to the Spanish coast yesterday, how will she get to Madrid?? is she going to walk it?? so no carbon footprint or will she go by car or public transport??

    Typical reports from news service yesterday.
    First, UK to suffer from torrential rain in the following week.
    Second, UK temperatures to fall to minus 10 and suffer from severe snow falls of to ten inches.
    Both statement were based on weather service news.
    Which one is correct, wait and see.

    Yes Terry, we saw that but what they failed to say was that this is not the first time this has occurred.
    Africa gets many periods of severe drought which is what they are going through just now.
    We down here in Oz are also suffering one.

    Reason according to one scientist, the Gulf stream was warmed beyond usual levels by exceptional activity of an undersea volcano which warms the waters.
    This additional heat effects the weather patterns.
    Southern Ocean warms more than usual resulting in prolonged droughts.
    Happy daze John in Oz.
