    29. You believe that a person buying sandpaper could be about to do some woodwork or play cricket.

    From the Melbourne Age this morning.

    The Reserve Bank has been warned it may have to buy up coal mines and fossil-fuel power stations as part of extraordinary actions to save the economy from climate change-induced financial disaster.

    As Australian business leaders grow increasingly worried climate change will hit their bottom lines and the International Monetary Fund warns global warming is now a major financial risk, a new warning issued by the world's top central bank says the RBA could be forced into rescuing the economy and the environment.

    Three separate reports released on the same day, coinciding with Australia's worst bushfire season and ongoing political division over environmental policy, point to increasing fears among economic policy leaders that climate change could cause the next global financial breakdown.”

    Will the voice of big money be enough to galvanise our government into
    planning for the demands of climate change ?

    Meanwhile in Australia

    CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Dust storms, hail and flash floods have battered beleaguered Australian cities in recent days, extreme weather that has diminished the threat from scores of wildfires that continue to blaze across the country’s southeast.

    A hail storm in the national capital Canberra on Monday damaged public buildings, businesses, homes and cars, cut power to some suburbs, brought down trees, caused flash flooding and injured two people, emergency services officials said.

    To the west, a 300-kilometer (186-mile) wide cloud of red dust was carried by wind gusts up to 107 kilometers (66 miles) per hour and descended on the drought-stricken towns of Dubbo, Broken Hill, Nyngan and Parkes, local media reported. Much of the dust is top soil from New South Wales state farms. . . .



    And they believe it's use of fossil fuels in Australia. :rolleyes:
    How do they convert their consumption of fossil fuels
    to GeoThermal activity? :hmm:

    News From Yahoo.

    https://news.yahoo.com/australia-fires-intensify-going-blast-131851806.html

    INVERLOCH, Just West of @Sallyally Australia — They fled from looming firestorms that threatened to cut off their escape, only to join a slog alongside the masses of others who crowded the roads. Thousands more waited for rescue by sea.

    Across the scorched southeast, frightened Australians — taking a few cherished things, abandoning their homes and vacation rentals, and braving smoke that discolored the skies — struggled Thursday to evacuate as wildfires turned the countryside into charcoal wasteland.

    And from government officials came a disheartening warning: This weekend will be one of the worst periods yet in Australia’s catastrophic fire season. . .

    There was a lot of damage to glasshouses where agricultural research was being done. In some cases, two years of research programs were lost.

    They may have got the place name mixed up with Mallacoota. Inverloch has been fire free so far.

    The conversation was a hail storm wrecking 2 years worth of agricultural research. Not sure what that has to do with the Crusades.
    Yes, I am btw.

    I know Mark Carney ex Bank of England said recently that people whould only buy fossil fuels in emergency situations and should be aware that they may become worthless overnight. One good thing we have is that the banking sector seems in general to believe the scientists.

    Australia defends plan to create island quarantine camp

    CANBERRA, Australia (AP)
    Australia’s government on Thursday defended its plan to send citizens evacuated from the epicenter of China’s novel coronavirus emergency to a remote island used to banish asylum seekers and convicted criminals, despite warnings that that some Australians would prefer to stay in China.

    Australia is preparing to send potentially hundreds of its citizens rescued from Hubei province to a quarantine camp on remote Christmas Island. The Indian Ocean island has been used by the government in a widely condemned policy of banishing asylum seekers who attempt to arrive by boat to offshore camps. . . .





    BRAVO Australia :applause:
    Modern public health does not take contagious disease seriously enough
    and Western Courts rule in favor of the rights of the infected & contagious.
    A RIGHT TO INFECT OTHERS. Go figure!

    POINT BEING:


    Australia Nationalism now more than ever. :rant:
    Australian resources for Australians and not the Japanese
    Australia develop an economy that primarily profits, Australians.
    Not Globalist.
    Let other nations purchase Australia's excess.



    Australia has "the lead" on GREEN Energy Production.
    If only a retarded Parliamentary system can produce the
    leadership as a FREEDOM loving Separation of Powers
    and independently elected Chief Executive may serve
    Australia FIRST!

    Moi :oldman:
    Not Australian
    Just a neo nationalist.

    The source of the coronavirus outbreak is traced to wild bats (Zhou et al. 2020). The new coronavirus is a zoonotic viral disease, meaning the first patients who were infected acquired these viruses directly from animals. Bat dishes are known in Wuhan, where the bat meat is considered an exotic dish. Coronaviruses are endemic in China because of their odious culinary culture. The Chinese need to stop disturbing wildlife habitats and they should never put wild animals into markets.

    Interesting, HIV avoids the immune system soon after infection... could explain why people are infectious without showing any symptoms.
    The lab designed theory have been floated in other independent media but mainstream quickly rush to dispel as fake news.... of course mainstream have no credibility...

    Monash University delays classes for Melbourne students due to coronavirus

    Key points:

    • On-campus classes due to start on March 2 have been pushed back to March 16 with online classes to start March 9
    • The university is worried students and staff may be delayed by measures to stop the virus and will not be back in time for the start of classes
    • The student association is generally supportive but concerned about the lack of consultation

    • from the ABC app this morning.

    Oh for heavens sake when HIV became prevalent back in the 80s at the height of the Cold War Soviet media started spreading 'news' that AIDS was in fact a US developed bio weapon being field tested. 20 years later and with advent of DNA and RNA screening techniques the cross species evolution of HIV from SIV in Africa has been irrefutably confirmed.

    These days every time a new disease comes to the fore - it has to be a conspiracy of some sought becasue obviously no virus or bacteria has ever jumped from species to species before and there is no evidence of that ever happening in the past.

    Also in late breaking news cyclones are the result of the Illuminati's use of their covert weather control satellite system and earthquakes are caused by the UN's experimental infra-sound weapon hidden in Antarctica.
