This Australian Climate Sceptics blog article says it all – The Red Hunt planned an October Carbon Tax – What can “right of centre” voters do? – Personally I could not vote for GreenLabor but I swear my 1st Preference vote will not give $2.60 to the Liberals.
The ABC reports – Mars at tail-end of ice age that would have seen red planet covered in ice
Just noticed this classic water news from Perth – global HQ of the rain-denial-desalination-promotion movement. Water Corp plans waste water treatment expansion, increased desalination – not a word that the Perth region and catchments have enjoyed above average rain in 2016 and in each month except Feb.
Percent rain all Australia so far in May – Percent rain just WA so far in May.
Here is a rain history for Perth catchments – just the runoff season. Pretty good rain on average.
Barnaby Joyce is the star this week by a nose in front of the dairy industry – Barnaby Joyce suggests asylum seeker boat influx under Labor coincided with live export halt – here is a chart of “Country Shopper” arrivals with B marking the live beef exports ban.
First – Govt and Labor should never agreed to the Greens inclusion in the so called “Regional Leaders Debate”. What is the Greens average vote in regional seats – 5 to 6%? Looking at the chart and weighing up all the knowns it is feasible that Barnaby is right.
Amazing how the dairy people only have to mention making poor business decisions in the face of two years of falling world dairy prices – and an avalanche of taxpayers $’s rapidly surges their way.
Finally, I am puzzled the Australian Liberty Alliance ALA do not seem a tad more active putting out media and keeping their www pages updated. They have I understand an excellent candidate standing for Curtin in David Archibald – yet this is not mentioned.
Re the closure of Aurukun School issue – I wonder if the Army should be used to keep the school open. I wonder what the cost of Aurukun is per year to taxpayers. All that money and the place is so dysfunctional that the school has to close – amazing.
Their warm May continues – Harsh weather traps 34 in Southland, Crown Range closed 23 May 2016 – earlier posts following – Unseasonally warm weather likely to stick around
Time we are reminded about the very good Agritech Salinity Crisis Action Plan so highly ignored by WA Govts. The WayBack Machine still has the Agritech site from several years ago. Contact details are obsolete.
I also had a page up.
Agritech also had their Wellington Dam Water Recovery Project – also on the WayBack Machine. Too good a project for the WA Govt.
I have mentioned the Agritech Wellington Dam project more than once.

Hope to find out why this was needed and what the specs are – Antonov An-225 Mriya’s 117-tonne cargo arrives at Worsley refinery in Collie 16 May 2016 – Worsley alumina refinery is owned by SOUTH32 LIMITED – the recent BHP spinoff.
Couple of thoughts – well worth taking five minutes to tick through the ABC Vote Compass – at one point there is an opportunity to choose your numero uno Senate choice (and H.Reps too) – the list is quite full and includes ALA – which is a rare mention of ALA in the mainstream meedja.
My other thought after the first week was; if our GreenLeft compliant Prime Minister Turnbull really deep down was not unhappy to throw the election to Labor – would it look like this?
Digger falls into hole left by burst Adelaide water main on arterial road at Prospect 20 May 2016 – The Pulse NewsCorp Blog
This year I have noticed these headlines just keep on – can anybody find a timeline of all these water main bursts?
I am just amazed that a water utility can “unlearn” basic engineering good practice established over more than 150 years.
