    global warming/climate change

    the contrast we're seeing in australia at the moment is unbelievable . I was a sceptic but I've been looking at our conditions over the past 7 years and it's getting a little weird..

    Snow-like hail blankets NSW beach

    Firstly hail on the beaches then two days later?

    ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    It was us, then it was tassies turn now it looks like NSW's. And it's not even summer yet .......What the eff is going on?

    Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I may have to kill because they P*** me off

    DO AS YOU WILL , HARM NONE.

    If you disturb a system that's in equilibrium then the result is a period of chaotic behaviour until it settles into a new steady state.

    That is why we're seeing extremes in all directions - hottest, coldest, wettest driest ...

    Hmmmm I can't find the original link but have a look at the comments on this page after a 'catalyst" report

    too much money behind the "science".

    Trust but verify (if you can).

    There's a lot more money behind denying the science. If the science is accepted, the populations will want pollution lessened, and that might cut into profits ever so slightly.

    I see you already have a premise on which you will convince yourself.

    Yup. I will believe the 98% of climate scientists who say that humans are impacting climate over the billionaire industrialists who finance the naysayers.

    It comes down to the method in which these pesky humans must be controlled. They must be restricted in all means of producing carbon and greenhouse gasses.

    Take a much deeper look into the funding those scientists pursue...very lucrative. What profit is to be made by denying their own source of cash?

    We in the western world must cripple ourselves for the betterment of humanity and as an example for the emerging world to follow. Let China and India grow as fast as they wish while we constrain ourselves in both resources and individual liberties....for the good of mankind.

    Of course, I (being a greedy human) still choose to live well.
