Another Dud QA I won't watch
Mar 12th, 2018 at 9:02am
 
https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/opinion/andrew-bolt/andrew-bolt-dont-expe...

Here is an opportunity to lay boot into a guy behind a lot of public waste yet the ABC won't have 1 sceptic to grill this guy.

This is a sample of his work:

FLANNERY in 2007 said global warming was so baking our Earth that “even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to fill our dams and our river systems”.

Instead, dams for Brisbane, Canberra and Sydney later filled to overflowing.

FLANNERY in 2015 said we’d see severe cyclones “more frequently in the future”. But the very next year, Australia for the first time recorded not one severe cyclone, continuing a pattern over four decades of fewer cyclones.

A paper in the Nature journal said: “Studies project a decrease in the frequency of tropical cyclones towards the end of the 21st century in the southwest Pacific, southern Indian, and Australian regions.”

FLANNERY in 2005 predicted Sydney’s dams could be dry in as little as two years, leaving the city “facing extreme difficulties”. In 2008, he said: “Adelaide … may run out of water by early 2009.” In 2007, he claimed: “In Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane, water supplies are so low they need desalinated water urgently, possibly in as little as 18 months.”

All three cities — and Melbourne, too — then built hugely expensive

desalination plants, convinced by the likes of Flannery that the rain would not return. All four plants have essentially been mothballed since.

FLANNERY in 2007 urged us to invest in “green” geothermal power — pumping water on to hot rocks underground.

He claimed hot rocks in South Australia “potentially have enough embedded energy in them to run Australia’s economy for the best part of a century”, and “the technology to extract that energy … is relatively straightforward”.

The Rudd government gave $90 million for a test plant in SA’s Cooper Basin, but a well collapsed, the site flooded and the project was abandoned.

I could add more dud predictions, but these are the most important and costly.

AGW one of the greatest hoaxes the oligarchy has ever bestowed upon people to get trillions of dollars up and running on wall street.

The bottom line is they want every man woman and child to pay for the air that they breathe.

Financial slavery under the guise of saving the environment, what other cause can gather so many willing foot soldiers.

Gillard is a traitor to this nation, she should be jailed for life.

What a curious way for Julia Gillard to sell a tax - even to businessmen - which we were originally told was needed simply to save the world from disastrous overheating:
 
"International carbon markets will cover billions of consumers this decade. Ask the bankers at your table whether they want Australia to clip that ticket. We’re going to help them get their share."  Julia Gillard


Hmm. That explains why so many bankers are global warming preachers, too. Think of those billions! Those tickets to clip! That share of the dosh! UPDATE Labor winds down yet another of its green schemes that have cost so much to do no good at all:

I am a fence sitter on this, show me the evidence and real usefulness of the science then I might believe it. Flannery by his own incompetence has done far more damage to the religion of global warming then any sceptic has done Smiley

He is the modern day snake oil salesman and a very unconvincing one at that.

Should've just been honest and forthright and magnanimous and said:-  "We're not copping enough revenue out of our current business model* for exporting resources such as coal, so we're going to apply a small tariff...we now realise, as Grappler has been saying for years, that our business model is flawed and fatally so, and we need to address this inequity of funding massive profits for offshore corporations at the expense of the Australian taxpayer....."


*flogging off the nation to offshore enterprises (inc), who not only return little to zero tax to this nation as a result, but also ask for subsidies (loans by another name) and direct loans, thus leaving them only liable for royalties that go to the states ..

There is a consensus among economists that putting a price on GHG emissions is the cheapest way to reduce them.

When people like Flannery and yourself are involved in that consensus it disappears in a puff of lack of credibility.

There's also a consensus that says there is a correlation between the amount of atmospheric CO2 and the global mean average temperature.

The only problem is the evidence comes from a computer model and you know what they say about computers right...!!!

We could clean our energy supply without spending billions or trillions on wall street.

1. Bag Filters
2. Electrostatic precipitators
3. Scrubbing
4. Gas instead of coal fired

We could clean up the soot the Nox the Sox that comes from combustion.

CO2 can be emitted into the atmosphere I don't see any problems with that.

There is no doubt that Tim Flannery said some things that he probably regrets now. His back ground is in mammalogy (the evolution of mammals) but he has studied the literature on climate science and does have a good grasp of the concepts.

He's probably quite bemused that off-the-cuff comments he made 13 years ago are still being used by conservative commentators to try and discredit him.

Andrew Bolt however has no background in science and the nonsense that he publishes can be easily dismissed. More importantly, trying to discredit Tim Flannery has no effect on the reality of human induced global warming.

I think a good ole Flannery bash is relevant. Timbo is the Australian epitome of climate hysteria. If his arguments at the time were a bit more measured, he wouldn't be getting haunted by them.

You don't remember Miranda Divine or Andrew Bolt's last one?

You must have a very short memory, Homo. They only rewrite this column at least once a month. Any time Flannery gives a talk or writes a book or goes on the tele, there's this story.

It's a board favourite. There's always a thread on it. Oh - and if Leonardo DiCaprio comes to town, expect the column on how many carbon miles he's clocking up.

So hypocritical of him to use cars and planes, you see.

Al Gore? He once attended a dinner where they served an endangered fish. He has the nerve to catch planes too. Sometimes, he even has things printed on paper - made from trees of all things.

How can we believe a thing these people say?

That is the rub, science goes through phases, discovery and/or hypothesis .... theory .... then experimentation .... then trials  .... then full use. As far as I can tell they are still trying to iron out the theory.

Einstein was an absolute genius his theory of relativity was only proven long after he was dead he was a real scientist ...... Flannery is just a grub !

You must have a very short memory, Homo. They only rewrite this column at least once a month. Any time Flannery gives a talk or writes a book or goes on the tele, there's this story.

It's a board favourite. There's always a thread on it. Oh - and if Leonardo DiCaprio comes to town, expect the column on how many carbon miles he's clocking up.

So hypocritical of him to use cars and planes, you see.

Al Gore? He once attended a dinner where they served an endangered fish. He has the nerve to catch planes too. Sometimes, he even has things printed on paper - made from trees of all things.

How can we believe a thing these people say?


Ever checked his electrical bill...?

Could run Melbourne for a year.




Reminds me of Al Gore he owns 7 mansions all with fire places as well as his private jet he flies around the world preaching his BS.


Don't forget all those condominiums he bought up at half price on the San Francisco peninsula after the owners saw an inconvenient truth........the fools...... Roll Eyes


You see? You could write Andrew Bolt's column yourself, Ajax.

Absolutely, even the smarter disciples of the climate change cult even distance themselves from this lunatic Smiley

That is the rub, science goes through phases, discovery and/or hypothesis .... theory .... then experimentation .... then trials  .... then full use. As far as I can tell they are still trying to iron out the theory.

Einstein was an absolute genius his theory of relativity was only proven long after he was dead he was a real scientist ...... Flannery is just a grub !

You've just made an off-the-cuff comment which is pretty ridiculous. After all, the Bureau of Meteorology were specifically set up to predict our future weather.

How would you feel if in 13 years time some shock jock hack like Andrew Bolt was continuing to quote you?

The only problem is the evidence comes from a computer model and you know what they say about computers right...!!!

We could clean our energy supply without spending billions or trillions on wall street.

1. Bag Filters
2. Electrostatic precipitators
3. Scrubbing
4. Gas instead of coal fired

We could clean up the soot the Nox the Sox that comes from combustion.

CO2 can be emitted into the atmosphere I don't see any problems with that.


There are millions of ways to do it. A price on GHG emissions chooses all the cheapest ones.

You mean buying air space over the Maroondah Dam forest or the Amazon forest on wall street Lower Manhattan in New York so you can keep on polluting the atmosphere through the carbon credit scheme.

Is better than retrofitting existing power stations with the equipment mentioned above which reduces pollution straight away.

Sounds as bad as banks creating money out of thin air, just a number on a computer.

I was talking about a statement on economics, by about 2000 mainstream economists. Do you have any reason, other than some misinformed wishful thinking, to assume they are wrong? Do you even know what they said?

Financial slavery under the guise of saving the environment, what other cause can gather so many willing foot soldiers.

Gillard is a traitor to this nation, she should be jailed for life.

Quote:
What a curious way for Julia Gillard to sell a tax - even to businessmen - which we were originally told was needed simply to save the world from disastrous overheating:
 
"International carbon markets will cover billions of consumers this decade. Ask the bankers at your table whether they want Australia to clip that ticket. We’re going to help them get their share."  Julia Gillard


Hmm. That explains why so many bankers are global warming preachers, too. Think of those billions! Those tickets to clip! That share of the dosh! UPDATE Labor winds down yet another of its green schemes that have cost so much to do no good at all:

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/blogs/andrew-bolt/is-the-carbon-tax-great-just-ask-t...






I am a fence sitter on this, show me the evidence and real usefulness of the science then I might believe it. Flannery by his own incompetence has done far more damage to the religion of global warming then any sceptic has done Smiley

He is the modern day snake oil salesman and a very unconvincing one at that.



Flannery is Australias version of Man Bear Pig (Al Gore).

If it's "fracked" gas it is worse than coal ... environmentally is a potentially big disaster in the making.

Gas is still a fossil fuel & if the side effects of it's extraction is worse than coal, you achieve nothing.

If you wanted to know what was the cheapest way to achieve a large scale change in how we obtain goods and services, would you ask a 'scientist' or an economist?

Their advice is not some unfathomable mystery either, that you have to take their word on.

There is no doubt that Tim Flannery said some things that he probably regrets now. His back ground is in mammalogy (the evolution of mammals) but he has studied the literature on climate science and does have a good grasp of the concepts.

He's probably quite bemused that off-the-cuff comments he made 13 years ago are still being used by conservative commentators to try and discredit him.

Andrew Bolt however has no background in science and the nonsense that he publishes can be easily dismissed. More importantly, trying to discredit Tim Flannery has no effect on the reality of human induced global warming.


Bolt is just a journalist Flannery is just a money seeking grub.


A professor money-seeking grub.


Like Al Gore ... bought & paid for.


No, Gonads, Al Gore's an ex-politician. Tim Flannery's an academic and ex-head of the Climate Council.

They're totally different people.


One is an arrogant lunatic the other is just arrogant ?


No one would ever describe Tim Flannery as arrogant, dear.

You?

I don't think he knows who Flannery is, other than what he has read in his CEC pamphlets.

That makes sense.

Do you know who Tim Flannery is, Right? If you watch Q&A tonight, you can find out.

I actually like Tim. I'm reading his book on Watkin Tench. His preface is pertinent and insightful. He f#@ked up with his 'sharks swimming down Pitt St' and 'dams never being full again' comments, though.

Yes that is the point, in the public eye you don't get second chances once you screw up big time beyond that I don't see him as a specialist but a scientist with dysfunctionality issues. There is nothing in the so called science of climate change that would suggest you could make the precise predictions he did.
Its like using Newtonian Physics to predict speed of light events.

There is a consensus among economists that putting a price on GHG emissions is the cheapest way to reduce them.


When people like Flannery and yourself are involved in that consensus it disappears in a puff of lack of credibility.



It remains the single biggest combined statement from economists in world history. But by all means, keep clutching for reasons to reject it.

There's also a consensus that says there is a correlation between the amount of atmospheric CO2 and the global mean average temperature.

The only problem is the evidence comes from a computer model and you know what they say about computers right...!!!

We could clean our energy supply without spending billions or trillions on wall street.

1. Bag Filters
2. Electrostatic precipitators
3. Scrubbing
4. Gas instead of coal fired

We could clean up the soot the Nox the Sox that comes from combustion.

CO2 can be emitted into the atmosphere I don't see any problems with that.


There are millions of ways to do it. A price on GHG emissions chooses all the cheapest ones.


So Economists are now Scientists?

There's a lot of bought & paid for economists doing the rounds.

The GFC was a classic example.

The bastards like the bankers should be in jail.


If you wanted to know what was the cheapest way to achieve a large scale change in how we obtain goods and services, would you ask a 'scientist' or an economist?

Their advice is not some unfathomable mystery either, that you have to take their word on.


So you can put a measurement for price on a a colourless odorless gas in our atmosphere as a commodity?

It's carbon dioxide .... not "carbon". Carbon is a solid.

And as I said economics is full of smoke & mirrors BS artists.

Like the banks making money out of nothing or taking out insurance on a product they sell that's bound to fail.

The world is full of trickery.

So the only people here rejecting carbon taxes also reject conventional economics?

We have already had a carbon tax. It is easy to do. The administrative burden is actually lower than with most taxes.

So do I.

Like I said how can buying up air space on wall street through the carbon credit scheme while you keep on polluting the atmosphere indefinitely be better or cheaper for that matter than sticking a filter on the end of those processes to manage the  pollution.

Read between the lines if we are at a point of no return, if we are about to change the Earth so much that we'll become extinct, if AGW is that deadly do you think its the best option to keep on polluting indefinitely as long as you pay, and we will be paying for quite some time it wont be an overnight thing.

There is your answer the oligarchy want to tax us plebs on the FREE AIR that we all breathe while they set up another trillion dollar market on wall street that doesn't need to be there in the first place.

They (the oligarchy) love printing money out of thin air ala ETS schemes right around the world.



The oligarchy must think that us plebs must be dumb cants.

Carbon credits are issued from carbon sinks.....!!!!

In other words we're buying up the air space above forests.

Carbon credits are nothing to do with carbon tax schemes. They are from cap and trade schemes. Even there, you are inventing your own definition.
