“Massive Cold Front” To Slam Australia; + NASA Used To Say This: “CO2 Would Have To Increase 10x To Achieve A 2.5-Degree Rise In Temperature”

“Massive Cold Front” To Slam Australia

Despite the 2007 AGW Party prophesy claiming that ‘rains won’t fill Australia’s dams’ due to cLiMaTe ChAnGe, this year has comfortably resigned that absurdity to the trashcan of history (as it has done with the Great Barrier Reef, too).

Heavy rains, driven by a fierce cold front, smashed the state of New South Wales (NSW) Wednesday afternoon, precipitation that brought Sydney on the brink of its wettest year on record.

For the fourth time this month alone, flooded regions stretching throughout inland NSW are, once again, being lashed by torrential rain, reports skynews.com.au, delivering, once again, the risk of major and widespread flooding.

Heavy falls have reached the NSW Central West, where the flash flood risk stretches from Coonamble to Forbes, smack-bang on top of the already flooded Macquarie and Lachlan rivers — warnings are now in place for renewed major flooding for these rivers, with the flood threat traversing east with the rain overnight and into Thursday.

For Sydney, 40mm (1.6 inches) is expected by Saturday — helping the Harbor City to creep to within just 100mm (3.9 inches) of its wettest year on record with more than three months still to go in 2022. [Sky News Australia]

Dr Tim Flannery, ‘the 2007 Australian of the Year’, was one of the first activist-scientists to warn of the existential threat posed by ‘Terrifying Terra Firma Broiling’ and was the man responsible for the 2007 predicted that ‘rains won’t fill Australia’s dams’.

Despite his clear and abject failures, however, Flannery remains ordained –and so protected– by the AGW Party, and said just last year that he feels totally “vindicated”. Really now… Here’s exactly what Flannery told ABC News back in 2007:

“We’re already seeing the initial impacts and they include a decline in the winter rainfall zone across southern Australia, which is clearly an impact of climate change, but also a decrease in run-off. Although we’re getting say a 20 per cent decrease in rainfall in some areas of Australia, that’s translating to a 60 per cent decrease in the run-off into the dams and rivers. That’s because the soil is warmer because of global warming and the plants are under more stress and therefore using more moisture. So even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to fill our dams and our river systems, and that’s a real worry for the people in the bush. If that trend continues then I think we’re going to have serious problems, particularly for irrigation.”

Vindicated…? What a complete –and arguably mentally ill– disconnect from reality; or is it rather that Flannery feels untouchable following the ordainment, so sacrosanct that even the fabric of reality can’t interfere with him.

In reality, though –where I seek to root myself– not only has 2022 been the wettest/near-wettest year on record for many Aussie locales, it has also delivered a colder-than-average winter for the country as a whole, with a few regions, including Queensland’s state capital, Brisbane, actually enduring their coldest winters in recorded history.

The winter season opened with record-breaking snow, too — the best start to a ski season ever, in fact; and even now, at the end of September, feet upon feet of powder is still clipping the continent’s ranges, building the snow depth:

This is a reality that not only jars with Fannery’s ‘dams won’t fill’ nonsense but one that also disproves the global warming hypothesis as a whole. The last time I checked, it has to be cold to snow, and by now, by 2022, cold/snow should be a very rare and exciting event; but instead, cold/snow is actually forecast to persist as the calendar flips to October, intensify even:

NASA Used To Say This: “CO2 Would Have To Increase 10x To Achieve A 2.5-Degree Rise In Temperature”

The chemistry and physics of carbon dioxide DOES NOT support the global warming theory, and NASA was aware of this way-back when the notion of wielding climate science as a controlling weapon was but a twinkle in a young Al Gore’s eye.

In the early 1970s, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration had a strong and consistent theory regarding the trace gas that is carbon dioxide: “The amount of atmospheric CO2 would have to increase 10 times to achieve a 2.5-degree rise in temperature,” scientists at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies were reported as saying in October, 1972. “More CO2 wouldn’t raise the temperature any further because the gas would have reached its absorption limit,” the researchers added.

This “absorption limit” is one of the most critical points in the AGW myth.

Alarmists’ linear thinking tells them the more carbon dioxide you add to the atmosphere the hotter it will get, but this is a scientifically-baseless assumption, a li(n)e that has been amplified by the dippy-eco-journalists (non-scientists) of the world who wouldn’t recognize a nefarious controlling agenda if it kicked them square up the arse.

A paper published in 1971 by NASA scientists Rasool and Schneider entitled, “Atmospheric carbon dioxide and aerosols: Effects of large increases on global climate” explains why the alarmists’ assumption is fundamentally wrong.

Below is a key paragraph lifted directly from the study:

“From our calculations, a doubling of CO2 produces a tropospheric temperature change of 0.8-degree. However, as more CO2 is added to the atmosphere, the rate of temperature increase is proportionally less and less, and the increase levels off. Even for an increase in CO2 by a factor of 10, the temperature increase does not exceed 2.5-degree. Therefore, the runaway greenhouse effect does not occur because the 15-um CO2 band, which is the main source of absorption, “saturates,” and the addition of more CO2 does not substantially increase the infrared opacity of the atmosphere.”

AGW proponents used to talk their way around this absorption spanner in the works by claiming that the remaining “unsubstantial” CO2-driven temperature increase would cause a chain reaction of other factors resulting in what amounted to runaway warming. However, the clock has long run out on that hokey theory — this prophesied chain reaction has been proven false by observation, and, therefore, it has largely been retired from the discussion.

To conclude, here is one key final point (and accompanying graph) from the Rasool and Schneider paper: “the rate of temperature increase diminishes with increasing CO2 in the atmosphere.”

Ah, the 1970s — a time before TPTB politicized climate science and used it to control an intentionally and increasingly dumbed-down populous–at least climate science of the ‘warming’ variety, that is…

    Does this mean the gravity of Jupiter pulls earth slightly out of orbit to cool the planet decreasing the sunshine?
    What happened 50 years ago that winter?


    1. Dirk Pitt

      It’s not cooler from the big alignment in N America, we were cooler at the end of September last year and the year before and the year before. There was snow in the mountains and now it’s still summer weather all the way up
      into northern Canada,
      Hurricane Fiona is pulling tropical heat out of S America and that wave is forecast to be a hurricane in Florida next week. Not a cool Jupiter alignment event and now is the time to evac, head on a swivel:
      The EU is not cold and snowy from the big Jupiter alignment. 61F forecast in Sweeden and Poland on the big alignment day and wonderfull weather for WW3:
      90s in the Stans, no cold there and probably the last thing on anyone’
      mind there is GSM or the big Jupiter alignment making it unbearably chilly.:
      80s in Asia and recovering from major typhoons:
      Oz/SA/Africa over 100F:
      It looks hot for Nascar in Texas Sunday, no Jupiter alignment blizzard forecast:

        If you review the no sunspots for 30 days data that preceded the two big recent freezes, the 1,000,000 fish kill in Florida and the 702 Texan kill in 2010 and 2021 realize there was a 5 month to 1 year lag between the lack of sunspot activity and the temp anomaly.
        Likewise there may be between the great Jupiter alignment and freezing on Planet earth.

    The question about saturation in the 15 μm absorption band is—and remains—the lynchpin in the whole AGW argument. Why it hasn’t received more scrutiny is beyond me.

    We already know that the majority of global warming temps is due to increases in overnight lows, not daytime highs, and that reflects the increased urbanisation and UHI effect of our modern world. Many GHCN official recording stations are poorly sited and whose recordings are either outright corrupted or double-homogenized into oblivion. Therefore, the temperature data set is not *the* be-all, end-all source of what’s happening to the climate.

    More than that, we have an exceptionally small timeframe from which to gauge what’s happening to the planet (~60 years, given spatial and temporal recordings that reflect much of the land data). And one only needs to look at the rare “three-peat” La Niña to see that the planet does not bow to us but vice versa.

        … except [because science and technology and God] we got chemtrails now to regulate earth’s atmospheric temperatures and radiance at near perfect “Goldilocks” levels… foe-ev-ah. Earth has now become, as it is colloquially called a “Goldilocks Planet”… or as earlier referenced in the bible… Heaven on Earth.

        In astrobiology, the Goldilocks zone refers to the habitable zone around a star. As [the] Stephen Hawking [gimped clown show] put it, “like Goldilocks, the development of intelligent life requires that planetary temperatures be ‘just right'”.[5] The Rare Earth Hypothesis uses the Goldilocks principle in the argument that a planet must be neither too far away from nor too close to a star and galactic center to support life, while either extreme would result in a planet incapable of supporting life. In simple words, it means that the user will have the best possible option, as the device is continuously trying to find one that suits most, with least difficulties. [6] Such a planet is colloquially called a “Goldilocks Planet”.[7][8]

            English Standard Version

            Submission to the Authorities

            13 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, 4 for she is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, tan avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience.

            Well, Jack (of beanstalk fame), if you want to trade Heaven for a handful of beans (Earth), I sure hope they turn out to be magic beans, but I’m very much afraid they’re going to be just pinto beans.

            1. Church Lady Logos

              Bonhoeffer tried [and died] trying to explain it but Carlin applies humour while speaking for most us here… it looks like it must have been mostly beans in the Depends today.

            2. Deb

              You’re a bad influence, putting it mildly, but I love you anyway.

            3. Deb

              Just try going a little easier on the ectoplasm.

            4. Deb

              I missed the Bonhoeffer video and went straight to the Carlin clip.

              I wonder how Bonhoeffer’s theory of stupidity would line up with what we know of people who join cults?

              I had an experience with someone who was incredibly stupid but did not know she was stupid. I’m very good at explaining things, but she just could not or would not grasp the things I was saying. I’m not sure which. In the end she became hostile and aggressive. It was an interesting experience. I never realized the danger in stupidity before.

            5. Deb

              But Bonhoeffer is talking about something else. I think he’s talking about people who voluntarily turn off their brains because they value something else more highly than thinking for themselves, eg: going along to get along. An awful lot of people fall into that category, regardless of IQ.

            6. Father Mulcahy

              Like a fish in water, cult followers can’t see or comprehend the reality of the cult they’re in either.

            7. Deb

              Cults also have a charismatic leader whom they think can do no wrong.

              Lutheran Martyr – Last I knew the Lutherans in Germany had to pay their tithes to the German IRS who then distributed it to the churches.
              Does this system still exist today?
              Is Lutheranism a cult, (charismatic leader)?

            9. Matt Dalby

              What’s the difference between a cult and a main stream religion?
              As far as I can tell it’s just a question of numbers, since both require followers to trust in authority/believe certain statements or a “holy” text without questioning it. If a few people are followers it’s a cult, beyond a certain number of followers it becomes a religion.

    What nobody seems to be considering or factoring into the whole equation is the rapidly increasing levels of Ectoplasma creeping into our realm. Where are the Ghostbusters when you need them… oh, I forgot, they got woke and went broke, too.

      In the 70’s I attended a demo by https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uri_Geller
      at Austin, Texas. I was in a front row seat.
      He bent a military grade metal spoon while rubbing the arm part just above the spoon. I actually got the spoon in my hands which was unbendable back into shape by me. I do have fairly strong hands from hours of slapping 7 1/2 lb wrenches each in each hand running 3/4 inch metal 25 foot long pumping rods into oil wells thousands of feet deep. That would be 4 connections per 100 feet swinging those wrenches round and round. Much better than a work out room. I was very well paid for it.

      So I was close enough I did not see any sleight of hand, though it could have been possible I suppose.

      I myself saw it, but drew no conclusions pro or con from the experience.


      1. Dallas Schneider

        The real test of any of these guys would be can they teach someone else to do what they do?

        Anyone here turn water into wine instantly yet?


      2. Dallas Schneider

        So I saw the spoon bending as he rubbed it, so it seems slight of hand magic trick would have been very difficult.

        I admit also did not put my full force of trying to bend the spoon back into shape but it was definitely not bending back without considerable force.


      3. Deb

        I skipped a few words, thought you said “hours of slapping wenches…”!

        I should have known, you’re much too nice a guy for that!

        1. Gus

          BS is an old roughneck too… we don’t slap wenches anymore but just look where that’s got us now!

  8. FYI

    The Speaker of the Russian Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, publicly stated today if the west doesn’t stop sending weapons and supply mercenaries to Ukraine, “tomorrow [I hope he doesn’t mean like tomorrow, tomorrow ’cause then there’s only only shopping day left ’till the 23rd – yikes – looks like I gots to head into town to pick up some brake line right quick here – the old ’87 Pathfinder just finally blew one] – theres they will have problems that are much more serious than those that are now.”
    He went on to say “American satellites and missiles are for military operations and Ukrainians are assigned the role of consumables.”

    This comes as Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned yet again, “the United States risks becoming a Combatant in Ukraine war” . . .

    It was just yesterday that Russian President Putin reminded the West that Russia has sophisticated nuclear weapons an it “will use them” to protect Russia.

    1. .


      In any event, Russia is taking off the gloves. Yesterday, Russia began calling-up 300,000 reserves and last night, they began moving tens of thousands of tanks and pieces of armor, out of storage, and are sending all of it into Ukraine.

      … mobilization of tens of thousands of tanks… 300,000 reserves… go big or go home, eh?

    re Putin

    It is unlikely the old tanks claimed to being wheeled out will even start up – having lacked maintenance. Putin has been using outdated tanks for months. Perhaps these ones exist as inventory but not in reality. Maybe he is like Hitler was in his closing months – Hitler at the end was “fighting” with troops who did not exist.

    Putin started the conflict by invading parts of Ukraine firstly in 2014 (do you recall the commercial airliner his ground personnel shot down soon after ? – many Australian citizens died in that crash). In 2022 he reinvaded with the aim of obliteration of the entire Ukrainian identity.

    re localised Australian weather –

    I live midway along the eastern coast at Bundaberg, Queensland. Been here for nearly 25 years. Something is happening with the climate here. For years we used to have what the family called the “September rains” – lasting for perhaps 2 weeks – pretty horrible times when caring for numerous small animals housed outside. These “September rains” ceased here some years ago. Yes this winter was cold by Bundaberg standards but not as cold as it was 10-15 years ago, then we had to rug up even inside the house during the day.
