A Response to ABC’s Media Watch’s “Shoot the Coral Messenger” Flimflam!

This reblog is in response to the current Australian “scientists” and media, blatantly misleading claim that “global warming” is devastating the Great Barrier Reef when it is quite clear that many factors are involved. (In particular El Nino warm periods).
It seems that this particular ‘outburst’ is a response to Pauline Hansen’s media release showing an example of most of the Reef being quite healthy.
And so the politically motivated wrangling goes on (and on) each side claiming scientific credibility leaving the public swayed by the mass media which is heavily biassed towards the political warming agenda.
Here is some real information, one of many posts revealed by a search on WUWT for “coral reef changes”.

Watts Up With That?

Great Barrier Reef With Exposed Coral at Low Tide

Being a Yankee I just recently became aware of the Australian Broadcasting Company’s Media Watch (MW) and The Australian when I first attracted Hoegh-Guldberg and later MW’s wrath by posting my essay, The Coral Bleaching Debate: Is Bleaching the Legacy of a Marvelous Adaptation Mechanism or A Prelude to Extirpation?, to the blogosphere. The essay got widespread attention after being re-posted on Dr. Judith Curry and Watts Up With That’s websites. I garnered additional attention when The Australian’s Graham Lloyd posted a few excerpts from the essay as an alternative viewpoint. Oddly the subsequent discussions about coral resilience did not focus on coral biology and the emerging science my essay detailed…

Putin Prepares for War, Medvedev Dedicates Himself to Science

Hearing and believing the Western media blindly, ( or corruptly), the reporting Western countries leaders’ propaganda about Russia’s alleged atrocities, amounts to a willing acceptance to be brainwashed.
Here is good information providing the ‘other side’ of the story.

Covert Geopolitics

To the deep consternation of the West, the Russian economy continues to grow amidst Western sanctions. Its scientific community and military sector continue to advance even after the massive plunders against the former Soviet Union.

Its agricultural sector, on the other hand, is poised to become the global superpower in terms of non-GMO food production.

Jill Hennessy Victoria Health Spread Disinfo

Not doing the vaccine industry any favours, methinks.
Certainly providing even the most ardent vaccine enthusiasts something to think about.

Real News Australia

According to a new pamphlet by the Victorian Government it’s safe to inject 100,000 vaccines into a child…AT ONE TIME!

By General Maddox.

(RealNewsAustralia.com) A pamphlet published by the State Government of Victoria in Australia (pictured below)poses the question to the public, “Can vaccines overwhelm a child’s immune system?” To which they answer, “No, a child’s immune system could manage 100,000 vaccines once.*” Thesymbol at the end denoting a footnote to guide readers, in fine print, to the source of the claim.

The source stated is, Vaccines 6th edition, Plotkin, Orenstein, Offit pp. 1470-1471. Bernie Smith of The Truth Library breaks this down for us…

It is referenced back to a statement made by the infamous Dr. Paul Offit. You can meet Dr.Offit inthis video. He stated that any child could handle 10.000 vaccine antigens at once. And yes you read that right again 10.000 not…

Severe Allergies to Peanuts, Eggs and Dairy Directly Linked to Ingredients in Common Vaccines

This suggestion has been around for a while and deserves consideration!


‘Have you read The Peanut Allergy Epidemic by historian Heather Fraser?

She begins by asking us why the peanut allergy epidemic is only found in Western cultures, where at least 4 million people experience the mysterious phenomenon, yet there are virtually no reported cases in India, where peanuts just so happen to be the main ingredient in most baby food products.

Consider this: one century ago, you couldn’t find anyone allergic to peanuts, but now it’s commonplace for parents to send EpiPens to school for the teacher and nurse to keep near to their children, just in case someone so much as opens a snack in the room that contains peanuts, or even if someone opens a food product that was so much as manufactured in “a facility that processes peanuts.”‘

NOAA: U.S. Tornadoes lowest since 1954 – during the “hottest year ever”

Reblogging this as the alarmist claims that are readily believed by the public, and by the vested interest supporters, are clearly suspect.
Claims of rising sea levels, weather extremes, coral reef deterioration, hottest “….” etc., are all distorted and /or inaccurate.

Watts Up With That?

Latest data from NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center indicate that as of today, the total count for 2016 of US tornadoes are fewest in a calendar year since record-keeping began in 1954. That’s a hard fact, that flies in the face of claims of extreme weather being enhanced by warmer temperatures,  as many have tried to claim. This graph from NOAA SPC shows that with 830 tornadoes so far this year (in black), it has crossed the minimum line (in magenta) showing 879 as the previous lowest number recorded on this date.

Additionally, the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Nashville said today:

There have only been 5 tornadoes in Tennessee this year. It’s been the quietest year for tornadoes in the state since 1987.

Meanwhile the U.N.’s weather bureau is warning of this:

It is very likely that 2016 will be the hottest year on record, with global…

Good Deaths in Mosul, Bad Deaths in Aleppo

A worthwhile learning experience.

Covert Geopolitics

As the U.S.-backed offensive in Mosul, Iraq, begins, the mainstream U.S. media readies the American people to blame the terrorists for civilian casualties but the opposite rules apply to Syria’s Aleppo.

Solar Cycle Mystery Solved ?

Not for the non-technical to understand, but meaningful for two main reasons:
Independent scientists can understand our climate trends are influenced by the Sun varying Earth’s atmospheric and surface temperatures. Scientists dedicated to “proving damaging man-made influences” apparently cannot understand this. Why?
Secondly, it is ludicrous for any scientist to claim that climate science is settled because it clearly is not!

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by David Archibald

In the time before the current period of faith-based science, much good work was done on the role of the Sun in controlling climate. One of the best monographs from that time of innocence is Hoyt and Schatten’s The Role of the Sun in Climate Change, published by Oxford University Press in 1997. That book starts with this paragraph:

About 400 years before the birth of Christ, near Mt. Lyscabettus in ancient Greece, the pale orb of the sun rose through the mists. According to habit, Meton recorded the sun’s location on the horizon. In this era when much remained to be discovered, Meton hoped to find predictable changes in the locations of sunrise and moonrise. Although rainy weather had limited his recent observations, this foggy morning he discerned specks on the face of the sun, the culmination of many such blemishes in recent…

Australia’s Banking Status

According to a media release from ‘Citizens Electoral Council’, questions about our banking well-being require answers.

Perhaps serious considerations about a reconstruction are due!

Readers chance to get up-to-date with the real financial crisis.

Hard questions for Australia’s banks

Following are the questions that Australia’s banks should be asked when they front up to Parliament this week:

  1. What is your over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives position, and what is the ratio of your derivatives exposure to equity, and to deposits?
  2. [To CBA:] Why did you suddenly stop disclosing your true derivatives position in 2012, after a period of rapid growth when it went past $3 trillion? What is the full, face-value derivatives exposure of your bank as of right now?
  3. In a Lehman Brothers-style chain reaction meltdown of your derivatives exposure, would you remain solvent?
  4. If, as is claimed, your derivatives “hedging” is in “safe”, plain-vanilla derivatives, why has your derivatives speculation grown so rapidly since the 2008 global financial crisis, while banks around the world have been aggressively reducing their derivatives exposure?
  5. Why did total Australian bank derivatives expand by a record $6.2 trillion in just the June quarter of this year, to an all-time high of $38 trillion—around 23 times Australian GDP (and many more times total bank assets and deposits)? What undisclosed event in the financial system sparked such a massive increase?
  6. With house prices in Sydney and Melbourne more than nine times annual household income, compared with the historical ratio of around three times, if and when the market snaps under the increasing lack of affordability and prices collapse by 40-50 per cent, would your bank survive?
  7. Why are you targeting unsuspecting retail investors—mum-and-dad retirees—to buy risky hybrid securities that other jurisdictions such as the UK forbid banks from selling to retail investors? Are you doing it because you need to raise capital in a hurry, and if so, why?
  8. Were the bad products the sales staff in your wealth management division sold to customers, which have caused massive losses and ruined many investors, designed to shore up the underlying position of your bank at the expense of your customers? Did your bank have a separate commercial interest in any investments that were sold?
  9. How much do you love the major political parties, Labor and the Liberals/Nationals, which since Hawke, Keating and Howard colluded to deregulate you, privatise the Commonwealth Bank so your private cartel wouldn’t have any competition, and thereby unleash you for your present profit-gouging spree? When you add up all of the donations you give to the major parties, compared with your profits, can you believe how cheap they have been to buy?

Impending crisis

Deutsche Bank is looming as the next Lehman Brothers, but is far more interconnected and therefore will have far greater consequences for the global financial system. When Australia’s banks begged the Rudd government in October 2008 for guarantees in order to survive, their combined derivatives exposure was around $14 trillion. Just eight years later, it is now $38 trillion!

In March 2014 the Citizens Electoral Council toured Parliament with the former Deputy Director of Japan’s Ministry of Finance, Daisuke Kotegawa, who successfully managed a derivatives crisis in the Japanese banking system in 1999, by over the course of a weekend closing out the Japanese banks’ derivatives so that the crisis did not spark a global meltdown. Kotegawa spoke to Australian MPs and the office of then-Treasurer Joe Hockey of the need for Australia and the world to adopt a Glass-Steagall separation of commercial banking from all other financial activities, including investment banking, insurance, stock broking and wealth management.

With another global crisis looming around Deutsche Bank, Kotegawa has reiterated what all governments should do to secure their banking systems, which the politicians who question Australia’s banks this week should heed:

  • Break up their banks along Glass-Steagall lines;
  • Send criminal bankers to jail—much more effective in stopping bad behaviour than fines;
  • Set and announce a target date to cancel all bank derivatives, so that banks can begin to “net out” their positions and the cancer of derivatives speculation can be excised in an orderly fashion.

Glass-Steagall is the number one financial issue in the world. People and increasingly more political leaders are recognising that it is the only way to protect the public from the next collapse of the global financial system, but the London and Wall Street bankers who don’t want to give up their scam of being able to gamble with depositors’ money are fighting to stop governments from enacting it. This is a fight we can and must win if Australia is to survive economically—join the CEC!
