Hi all,


just got a Q &A style leaflet printed by Energy Australia headed:

 "  CFL   SAFETY  "

The very first question reads:

Q.  Do Carbon Fluorescent Lamps contain mercury ?



Oh dear ...........

Looks like enviro-theatre is becoming as ridiculous as the security-theatre
we've already had to put up with.

Eco-socialists (un-surprisingly) know nothing when its all said and
done.

Maybe they should just follow the lead of the worlds most famous
socialsts and call the bulb "lenin's bulb" like they did during soviet
electrification. jailing or shooting anyone who disagrees is also an
option worth considering. Meanwhile, Global warming will not stop.

It's not called "Global Warming" any more. It's now referred to as "Climate
Change". This is to cover the case where warming is short lived and leads into a
period of protracted global cooling...

My understanding was that "Climate Change" was the preferred term as it was
less confusing to laypersons who could not understand that as part of the
overall warming process some areas will experience transient cooling that
may last many years. The cooling effects can be caused by changes in ocean
currents due to ice melts, glacier melts etc.

Sounds like some advertising moron was too embarrased (or too confident in their
own knowledge) to ask what CFL meant when asked by management to draw up the
leaflet.

And will probably blame the spell checker of course.
Makes you wonder how many other morons signed off on this effort before it
was printed!
Then again it may have happened at the printers, but is less likely these
days than when type-setting was done manually.
Unfortunately the art of proof reading also seems to have fallen out of
fashion lately.

could be part of that ever growing carbon footprint KRUDD keeps telling
us about.

    Has anyone watched "The Greenhouse Conspiracy" and "The Great Global
Warming Swindle"? Interesting viewing ...

If they look anything like Andrew Bolt's page in the Melbourne
Herald-Sun today:
<http://blogs.news.com.au/heraldsun/andrewbolt/index.php/heraldsun/comments/column_seven_graphs_to_end_the_warming_hype/
it will spark off a lot of controversial comments/feedback.
387 comments since publication this morning.
Again, an interesting read.

    Yes, an interesting read, Don.

    Those two heretical documentaries I mentioned are downloadable as
torrent files, by the way.

Without a spell checker and google, I would be just another silly old

A documentary called "Global Dimming" shown on the ABC a year or two back is
also interesting viewing.

The 24hrs post 911 with no planes flying in the states showed a jump in
solar radiation back to levels observed in the 1950s. All pretty factual no
supposition, gloom & doom, just what was observed etc. Some stuff on it
here:

You bet !

IIRC, the contrails from the planes were keeping the earth slightly cooler. This
shows vividly how much 'cloud cover' affects climate far more than a few ppm of
CO2. That's just from memory btw.

You know the latter was effectively 'banned' by the US TV networks ?

You can find bits or maybe even all of it on youtube I think.

    Apparently when GGWS was shown on ABC-TV last year, the parts with
Prof Carl Wunsch were removed because the good professor later said that
his comments were edited to give the opposite impression to what he
really meant.
    Also the program has later retracted its claim that volcanos emit
more CO2 than all human activity. But that still leaves a lot of stuff
worth thinking about, like how many people are getting a very nice
income by jumping on the Climate Change bandwagon.
    Greenhouse Conspiracy was made way back in 1990 when the whole
Global Warming thing was just beginning. A few of the people in it also
appeared ~15 years later in GGWS.
