I had not heard much about the Ivanpah Solar Power Facility for a while – no wonder – Recall we were told gas would be used to warm the boilers on cold Mohave Desert mornings. But when you convert the ever increasing natural gas usage to MWhrs – Ivanpah electricity production is mostly from natural gas.
This story from near Longford in Tasmania makes out rain for June 2016 was due to “climate change” – yet Longford data shows several years with higher June rain.
Here is what the NORK Foreign Ministry spokesman said. While checking headlines at KCNAWATCH I was drawn to this news of the heroic efforts of a mining team at the Komdok Pb, Zn, Ag mine. Perhaps these sort of prizes could help bring back our mining boom. This comparison of North & South Korea sets out some parameters measuring how colossal the NORK failure has been since 1970 measured against booming South Korea. Allowing that SK has twice the population – the NORKs GDP is only about a 40th of the south per capita. A truly stunning performance for the little hereditary Stalinist nuke & missile making hermit kingdom.
Just for curiosity – data from BoM CDO – 1955-2016 61 years.
Excel says cooling at 0.00397° per year.
Casey and Davis have shorter records – I did not look at those minimums.
We all saw these stories featuring aerial photos purporting to show coal spills from Abbott Point after Cyclone Debbie.
Then in recent days the dark material in beach sands was shown to be magnetite.
But the Financial Times is still spruiking the original Green lies.
So many towns include areas built too near rivers – it seems amazing in 2017 we are distracted by these repeated flood dramas. Does anybody know if there are plans to encourage the worst affected to move to higher ground.
The NZ Herald today has a headline “An Auckland cliff is showing signs of collapsing.” In the context of rain from “Cyclone Debbie” – they must mean “remnants of Cyclone Debbie”. Anyway, back to the cliff. A rational statement would say “all cliffs anywhere on planet earth (including Auckland) are the sites of past, present and future collapse”. The rate of collapse can be varied by factors such as wave action, rain, runoff, earthquakes and river meandering.
Why is society so ignorant of earth science 101.
We know the ABC has a team constantly puffing any obscure negative story about PHON and is now promoting the lie that PHON is racist. I have had an email listing a few reasons why people might vote PHON – and I have added some of my own – not in any order of merit.

 Concentrating defence contracts in Adelaide after monster fail of 12.
