    The All England Club has been advised its independent status means it could ban Russian and Belarusian players failing to denounce Putin and not face any legal repercussions.

    Unfortunately, the people in charge have the power to do this.

    We had some big arguments at home regarding “vaxxination” and the rest of my family got them. I copped a lot of shit at home over my not getting it, but it seemed to stop when I said if they get sick, I will be the one looking after them, and if they die, I will be the one that avenges them. The perpetrators of all this can get forgiveness from Jesus but they’ll get none from me.

    My friend’s son late last year got the jab. He was 18 and working at Maccas, where they have compulsory frankenshots and he wanted to keep his job.

    Last week he got rushed to hospital in an ambulance with breathing difficulties. When I mentioned to someone in the household about the vax, they dismissed it and said he has had problems with his lungs before. I lived there for 18 months and don’t recall anything ever being wrong with him.

    He’s got a better job now, and QLD is lifting the vax mandates for venues. But he took the shot – because of McDonalds.

    Cars lay crushed in the middle of the main road leading out of Bucha, Ukraine, on Sunday, April 3, 2022. With Russian forces retreating, Ukrainians in Bucha are finding scores of bodies in yards and on the roads amid mounting evidence of intentional and indiscriminate killings of civilians.

    And I’m sure our major sporting events will refuse sponsorship money as I pointed out on the weekend from nefarious international actors:

    ‘Chinese surgeons acted as state executioners on prisoners by surgically removing their hearts while they were still alive, shocking new Australian research reveals.
    By carefully examining thousands of Chinese medical papers and analysing the medical procedures, research is from the Australian National University concluded the hearts were harvested before brain death of victims.
    Human rights advocates said the new evidence told a “terrible tale of murder and mutilation” by the Chinese Communist Party, and was “almost too dreadful to believe”.
    The research, published in the American Journal of Transplantation, used computer modelling and is the first comprehensive study that “illustrates the active role that transplant physicians in China played in this process”, the researchers said.
    The study’s authors – ANU PhD researcher Matthew Robertson and Israeli cardiac transplant surgeon Jacob Lavee – say their findings showed the process of execution appears to have transitioned from a firing squad in a field to the operating room itself.
    China has denied engaging in the practice, but the researchers pointed out that Chinese hospitals advertised transplant waiting times of weeks, unlike other countries, where it is measured in months and years.’

    Black Lives Matter Secretly Bought a $6 Million House
    Allies and critics alike have questioned where the organization’s money has gone.

    On a sunny day late last spring, three leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement — Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Melina Abdullah — sat around a table on the patio of an expensive house in Southern California….

    None of the women acknowledged the house behind them. It’s far from a box, with more than 6,500 square feet, more than half a dozen bedrooms and bathrooms, several fireplaces, a soundstage, a pool and bungalow, and parking for more than 20 cars, according to real-estate listings. The California property was purchased for nearly $6 million in cash in October 2020 with money that had been donated to BLMGNF.

    World leaders and businesses are telling lies when they promise to tackle climate change and there will be catastrophic consequences without immediate and deep cuts in emissions, the UN has warned.

    The world is on course for a catastrophic 3.2C of warming by the end of the century based on existing policies, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

    It says investment in emissions reduction is three to six times lower than it needs to be by 2030 to limit warming to below 2C.

    Antonio Guterres, the UN secretary general, said the report was “a file of shame” that exposed the empty pledges made by some leaders of governments and businesses.

    “We are on a fast track to climate disaster: major cities under water, unprecedented heatwaves, terrifying storms, widespread water shortages [and] the extinction of a million species of plants and animals,” he said.

    “Some government and business leaders are saying one thing — but doing another. Simply put, they are lying. And the results will be catastrophic.”

    Hoesung Lee, the climate change panel chairman, said the report, produced by 278 scientists who analysed 18,000 studies, showed that “we have the tools and know-how required to limit warming. I am encouraged by climate action being taken in many countries. There are policies, regulations and market instruments that are proving effective. If these are scaled up and applied more widely and equitably, they can support deep emissions reductions and stimulate innovation.”

    The report focuses on ways of militating climate change and is the third report in the past nine months.

    The first, in August, examined the physical science of climate change and was called a “code red for humanity” by the UN. The second in February focused on the impacts of climate change.

    The report warns that the world has a very limited remaining “carbon budget”, which is the amount of greenhouse gas it can afford to emit without breaching the 1.5C limit.

    A total of 59 billion tonnes was emitted in 2019 and only another 500 billion tonnes can be emitted to have a 50 per cent chance of limiting warming to 1.5C.

    The report said:

    COAL, GAS AND OIL: About 80 per cent of coal reserves, 50 per cent of gas, and 30 per cent of oil is “unburnable” if warming is to be limited to 2C.

    TRANSPORT: Emissions have been growing by 2 per cent a year globally, partly due to heavier vehicles and “car centric development” the report says.

    FORESTS AND FARMING: Protecting and restoring forests, peatlands and wetlands could reduce emissions by seven billion tonnes a year. Deforestation has declined globally since 2010 but risen in the Amazon.

    DIET: Diets “high in plant protein and low in meat and dairy” could lead to substantial decreases in emissions.

    POWER: Wind and solar farms create power as cheaply as fossil-fuel power stations but deployment rates are “insufficient to meet climate goals”.

    BUILDINGS: The report backs a rapid shift to more efficient appliances, low-energy lighting and renovations to reduce the need for heating and cooling.

    CARBON DIOXIDE REMOVAL: Methods of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere will be essential to meet net zero because of the need to counterbalance emissions from sectors where they are hard or impossible to remove.

    The IPCC report has been analysed by Graham Lloyd. I find this more informative.

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has confirmed what anyone who has been paying attention to the politics of climate change has long known. Global carbon dioxide emissions are rising and governments around the world have been lying about what they are doing about it.
    “We left COP26 in Glasgow with a naive optimism, based on new promises and commitments,” UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres said. “But the main problem, the enormous, growing emissions gap, was all but ignored.”
    The latest IPCC report, the third in a series that started with the AR6 updated scientific understanding of the problem, confirms the carbon gap is growing and hopes of limiting future warming to 1.5C are a bust.
    Projected cumulative future CO2 emissions from existing and planned fossil fuel infrastructure is higher than the total permissible to limit warming to 1.5C.
    Keeping the rise below 2C will require greater efforts than what is being delivered. Domestically, when set against a measure of global action rather than global rhetoric, Australia’s efforts may not be as shameful as many suggest. And, if the actions and remedies outlined in the IPCC report are adopted, Australia could be well placed to benefit financially.
    But this is a global concern, not an international competition. After years of disappointment the bigger debate forming is – while acknowledging that the world is warming – whether the climate change problem has been properly defined and if the response being advocated through the IPCC process is capable of delivering.
    Optimists argue that, with the private sector on board and prices for solar and batteries falling dramatically, new technologies and the profit motive will solve the problem. A countervailing view is that hubris about the capacity of humans to control a complex and highly variable natural process such as the climate is getting in the way of dealing with the full suite of issues that come with trying to accommodate eight billion people on planet Earth.
    A wind turbine surrounded by electricity pylons in Switzerland. Picture: AFP.
    The latest IPCC report details the poor returns from the current approach. Net anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions have increased since 2010 across all major sectors globally. Emissions reductions in CO2 from fossil fuels and industrial processes have been less than emissions increases from rising global activity levels in industry, energy supply, transport, agriculture and buildings.
    On Monday IPCC lead author and Australian National University professor Frank Jotzo told me there was “a large gap” between recent emissions growth as well as current pledges for 2030 and what would be needed for a 2C outcome.
    He says action to reduce emissions needs to be greatly strengthened “across all countries and all sectors” but is “technically possible” and “economically feasible”.
    It is estimated about half the cuts needed by 2030 could be achieved for under $US100 ($131) a tonne. But even if the money were there, would the cuts be politically achievable? “That assessment is not made in IPCC work,” he says.
    It is significant the release of the latest IPCC report was delayed as governments wrestled with the detail. Insiders in negotiations say a big stumbling block was disagreement over the details of finance flows from developed to developing countries for climate action. This is a major conflict within the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change process and is likely to dominate this year’s Conference of the Parties meeting of the UNFCCC in Egypt.
    Events in Britain and elsewhere in Europe suggest there is a real possibility the cost of taking action will exceed the political capacity to act, even before funding a transition in the developing world is considered.
    The NSW Government approved the Maxwell Underground Mine Project in Jerrys Plains, to be constructed across the road from thoroughbred studs Coolmore and Godolphin. Picture: Toby Zerna.
    The war in Ukraine has further complicated the immediate outlook for fossil fuels but was not addressed in the IPCC report.
    A squeeze on supplies has forced global energy prices sharply higher and rekindled exploration and production. What this means in the longer term remains uncertain. In the short term, countries across Europe, notably Germany, are scrambling to find alternative gas and oil supplies to Russia.
    “Western Europe is backfilling for the expected loss or reduction in gas and oil supplies from Russia,” Jotzo says. “In the short term that means finding supplies from elsewhere, slightly more use of coal and extended use of nuclear and other sources of imports of gas.”
    However, fossil fuels could be a short-term response.
    “Medium to long term, the fraying of geopolitical order for western Europe will accelerate low emissions transition,” Jotzo says.
    The IPCC report says limiting global warming will require major transitions in the energy sector including a substantial reduction in fossil fuel use, widespread electrification, improved energy efficiency and use of alternative fuels such as hydrogen. Jotzo says hydrogen and ammonia definitely have potential as energy sources including internationally traded commodities. “But we would not expect the volumes of hydrogen to be as large as the volumes currently traded as fossil fuels,” he says.
    This is because traded hydrogen faces additional costs for the conversion process and this means its competitiveness is constrained by low-cost renewables.
    There are plenty of wildcards. One is the possibility that a nuclear renaissance will transform energy markets with safe, low-cost, emissions-free power. Breakthroughs in fusion research involving lasers or new methods of achieving radioactive waste-free low temperature reactions could potentially achieve the same result. One lesson from history is that paradigm shifts are possible and can sweep away generations of incremental technological advance.
    Climate scientist Judith Curry argues in a new paper published in International Affairs Forum that in 50 years we may look back on the UN climate policies as akin to using chemotherapy to try to cure a head cold. Her premise is that the climate change narrative of existential crisis is not reflected in the official IPCC reports and gets in the way of finding real solutions to our societal and environmental problems and potential threats.
    A Goldwind turbine installed at Cattle Hill Wind Farm in Tasmania.
    Curry’s concern is that climate change has become a grand narrative that there is only one thing we can do prevent societal problems – stop burning fossil fuels. This grand narrative leads us to think that if we urgently stop burning fossil fuels, then these other problems also would be solved.
    “This sense of urgency narrows the viewpoints and policy options that we are willing to consider in dealing not only with our energy and transportation systems, but also regarding complex issues such as public health, water resources, weather disasters and national security,” Curry says.
    She argues the complexity, uncertainty and ambiguity of the existing knowledge about climate change is being kept away from the policy and public debates. The IPCC itself does not use the words crisis, catastrophe or even dangerous, she says; rather, it uses the term “reasons for concern”.
    All other things being equal, everyone would prefer clean over dirty energy. However, all other things are not equal. Curry argues the urgency of rushing to implement 20th-century renewable technologies risks wasting resources on an inadequate energy infrastructure, increasing our vulnerability to weather and climate extremes and harming our environment in new ways.
    The argument is not to do nothing. But it is an invitation to consider the issues from a broader perspective. Curry says the urgency of transitioning from fossil fuels to wind and solar energy has sucked all the oxygen from the room, leaving no space for imagining what our 21st-century infrastructure could look like, with new technologies and greater resilience to extreme weather events, or even to deal with traditional environmental problems.
    Within the highly partisan debate in Australia, this may be a heretical point of view. But given the findings of its latest report, the IPCC is at risk of proving the definition of insanity: doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result.

    Grasshoppers do exist without humans. They are neither a human construct, nor a social construct. Humans have named them in as many ways as there are distinct languages where grasshoppers exist on this Earth. In fact, humans have provided grasshoppers orders of magnitude more names than that, because the scientists who find and describe and name and classify grasshoppers—the taxonomists and systematists of grasshoppers—have identified more than 10,000 species of grasshoppers and their close relatives around the world. Over ten thousand species of grasshopper have been named by scientists. Those names are constructs. And in some cases, probably, the borders between the species being too finely drawn, the species distinctions are constructs as well. But the grasshoppers themselves? They are neither human construct, nor social construct. We came in with our science and our words and discovered truth about them, but that truth existed without us, and would continue to exist if we were to disappear.

    Another funny little town in a rural part of the country…..

    Shy Ted, there was a suggestion a while back, that you put forward these experiences as Posts. If you had agreed to that, I would have been appreciative, as you could be the author of the post of the week. That would be a nice change for our blog readers to be reading your stories as Guest Posts, on the main page.

    A few weeks ago, I was reading a whodunit, and one of the suspects was the victim’s mother with Munchausens Syndrome by proxy, as a factor. That was a fictional novel. What you are writing is based on your professional experiences, and is worthy of a wider audience.

    If you change your mind, just say the word…..

    No one on the blog seems inclined to write a Post. As I am sure Ted will agree, it only takes 5 or 10 minutes. 🙂

    Kaysee – I’m a mechanical engineer in a specialised field. My writing “expertise” is in the form of Reports which tend to be short and to the point.

    Many of us are in this boat – we don’t write posts not because we don’t want to but because we are not writers / wordsmiths.

    I don’t know of what you describe. Works fine for me.

    Oh

    Do you mean you added a link and it sat there loading all sorts of things, interminably? Usually takes a bit to chugg along and do its thing.

    Need a ‘clean’ link to the article, so chop off anything related to google.

    Sensible commentators like Judith Curry have been saying for years that, eventually, the world will realise the folly of the global warming scam much like the scare of the looming ice age in the ’70s.

    The problem is that by the time the world realises it was a hoax, will it be possible to undo the damage?

    The hoaxers will have made their billions in the renewables industry and walked away.

    Fat Tony, I understand the point you are making. My call out is to those who can write, but are for some reason, unwilling to do so. It would be good for the blog to have a variety of post writers.

    The real problem is that there are so many doing this in all areas that what they will be walking away from will be a smouldering ruin.

    These types would starve if required to work to feed themselves.
    And with their push for the “vexxines” and the resultant possible long-term deaths & injuries, there is a very good chance they will have to work to feed themselves – and starve to death.

    Good evening, Sinclair 

    I hope this finds you well and awash in champagne. 

    Just wondering if you would like to contribute a guest post to Adams catallaxyfiles.

    Thank you, Ragu. But I just play a small part, when I can come here.

    The ones who actually keep the blog moving along, are the ones who have been here, every day, for over six-seven months. Despite all the problems, they did not give up on the blog. They’d come in and keep posting comments.

    I have mentioned names before, and I am reluctant to do so again, lest I miss out some names. But months ago, mh and Steve were the ones who kept the place going with regular comments. The blog would have fallen apart, without them.

    There were a few others who joined in the regular effort. Shy Ted, egg_, …… I took a quick scroll through this thread, afraid that I might miss out names. There are others who come in and post many comments – sorry, I can’t mention all names. But I am thinking of those who keep posting continuous comments 4 – 5 – 6, with no response from anyone else. It feels like you are alone on the blog, talking to yourself, but just carry on, to keep the thread moving on.

    Thank you ….. all, whether your names are mentioned or not, for your contribution to the blog.

    The blog is the sum of the parts, and more.

    Adam’s blog reminds me of the diehards on “the steal” Election threads at Sinc’s – many of the same commenters are here on this blog.

    Not just Maralinga, looks like the US Civil Defense Corps were duped in this saga.

    Operation Cue, or Apple II – 29 kilotonne TNT equivalent – twice the size of the Hiroshima bomb – and the “reporter” (likely an AEC staffer) is scrambling over the site allegedly 24 hours later amongst the nuclear fallout.

    IIRC the bomb was set off at 10 seconds after midnight, a report on the affected blast area was produced at 0345 hrs – so dupes with Geiger counters were scrambling around in the dak mapping the blast area.

    From the comments:

    Think for yourself! On March 31, the mayor of the city of Bucha, Anatoly Fedoruk, confirmed in his video message that there was no Russian military in the city, but did not even mention any local residents shot in the streets with their hands tied. Therefore, it is not surprising that all the so-called “evidence of crimes” in Bucha appeared only on the 4th day, when SBU officers and representatives of Ukrainian television arrived in the city. ❗️ Of particular concern is the fact that all the bodies of people whose images were published by the Kiev regime, after at least four days, have not stiffened, do not have characteristic cadaveric spots, and uncoagulated blood in the wounds. ⚡️ All this irrefutably confirms that the photos and video footage from Bucha are another production of the Kiev regime for the Western media, as it was in Mariupol with the maternity hospital, as well as in other cities.
