DIFFERENCES BETWEEN COVID-19 & COMMON COLD

“PNEUMONIA MANIFESTS WITH HIGH FEVER AND DIFFICULTY IN BREATHING”

The staff at the Princess of Wales hospital, South Wales, National Health Service (NHS) were sent this memo: This was the advice given to all hospital employees. It explains the virus and hopefully, how to prevent getting it. Please share this  information with your family, friends and work colleagues.

VIRIS DETECTION: The simplest way to distinguish Coronavirus from a Common Cold is that the COVID-19 infection does not cause a cold nose or cough with cold, but it does create a dry and rough cough. The virus is typically first installed in the throat causing inflammation and a feeling of dryness. This symptom can last between 3 and 4 days. The virus typically then travels through the moisture present in the airways, goes down to the trachea and installs in the lungs, causing pneumonia that lasts about 5 or 6 days. Pneumonia manifests with a high fever and difficulty breathing. Continue reading DIFFERENCES BETWEEN COVID-19 & COMMON COLD →

ITALIAN HEALTHCARE SYSTEM CLOSE TO COLLAPSE

CORONAVIRIS DEATH RATE CLIMBS TO ALMOST EIGHT PERCENT OF CONFIRMED CASES

Italy recorded nearly 3,000 deaths related to the coronavirus outbreak, as the number of cases detected passed 35,000, authorities announced on Wednesday 18/3. Italy had just recorded the highest one day death toll of any one nation since the COVID-19 outbreak began with 475 deaths, with more than 35,700 people infected and close to 3000 people have died.

With entire countries now on lock down, borders closed, flights cancelled and ‘social distancing’ becoming the new norm, it seems a lot of people are wondering, what is it that makes COVID-19 so much more deadly than SARS or H1N1? “For COVID-19, [transmissibility] is at a two or three. That Continue reading ITALIAN HEALTHCARE SYSTEM CLOSE TO COLLAPSE →

NO LINK BETWEEN EMISSIONS AND TEMPERATURES

The complete elimination of all fossils in the US immediately would only restrict any increase in world temperature by less than one tenth of one degree Celsius by 2050 and by less than one fifth of one degree Celsius by 2100, according to MAGICC,  the Model for Assessment of Greenhouse gas Induced by Climate Change, a NCAR/US government computer model to establish the effect of zero emissions

NCAR is the go-to agency for the US Government and IPCC climate modelers to determine the impact of CO2 on world climate. MAGICC Model projects what would be the impact on temperature of the Earth. Continue reading NO LINK BETWEEN EMISSIONS AND TEMPERATURES →

BOXING DAYS ARE GETTING COOLER NOT WARMER

EXTREME HEAT DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGE COULD SEND BOXING DAY INTO EXTINCTION ?

According to the ABC and the Guardian Newspaper the Boxing Day Test may need to be moved to November or March in the future to avoid extreme heat, which is a danger to players and cricket fans, a new report from Monash University’s Climate Change Communication Research Hub has found.

Boxing Days 2 C. Cooler Click to enlarge       

The study wants Cricket Australia to use its prominence to push for greater climate action and do more to look after player and spectator welfare.

However, according to the climate temperature chart (left) Boxing Day average temperatures have fallen by at least two degrees Celsius since 1855 and almost four degrees Celsius since 1930!  Meanwhile, Melbourne has just experienced its coolest summer in eighteen years. Melbourne’s mean temperature (combined minimums and maximums) during summer will be about 20.1 degrees Celsius (68.2 degrees Fahrenheit). This is the lowest summer mean temperature in Melbourne since 2001-02. It had actually peakedat 26 degrees Celsius in 1930 Continue reading BOXING DAYS ARE GETTING COOLER NOT WARMER →

THIRD PIPE MANDATED WITHOUT PLANT LOCATION

THIRD PIPE COMPLIANCE APPROVAL BASED ON PLANT BEING BUILT ON GOLF LINKS ESTATE

By way of background, Manningham, in 2008, had entered into an agreement with Yarra Valley Water and Melbourne Water to develop an integrated approach to water servicing across Doncaster Hill which was to be YVW’s first venture in a built up area. 2008-9 saw continuing hot and dry conditions in south-eastern Australia, despite occasional heavy rainfall failing to break a continuing drought. However, Victoria remained  in drought with Melbourne’s water supplies dipping to around 30% by July 2008.

YVW are again proposing a Recycled Water Plant a mile away from the its destination on Doncaster Hill, slap bang in the middle of Tram Rd reserve and adjacent to the rear boundaries of residential dwellings.

There are still a number of residents who believe that there was never any intention to locate the plant adjacent to the Club’s land otherwise it would have been notified.  Mr Tilley, the secretary of the Eastern Golf Club during this period, said there had been no consultation with Council whatsoever and the first he knew of the Sewer mine proposal was after the Council meeting Continue reading THIRD PIPE MANDATED WITHOUT PLANT LOCATION →

MANN’S HOCKEY STICK ALTERED CLIMATE HISTORY

MEDIEVAL WARMING PERIOD AND THE LITTLE ICE AGE HAD TO GO

The problem for the Climate Scientists, the  IPCC and the supporters of AGW, was that  they they had to prove that the current phase of warming was unnatural, unique and unprecedented. If a similar or greater warming period had occurred in the past such as during the Medieval Warming Period (MWP), then clearly any such recent warming must have been natural and not the result of human activities.

Mann deletes MWP & LIA from IPC reports

Too prove their theory climate history had to be changed which is what happened when IPCC removed the MWP and the Little Ice Age recorded on page 202 of 1990 IPCC report below.

Professor Tim Ball, who was sued by Michael Mann for defamation regarding comments he made about the integrity of the Hockey Stick Graph, has succeeded in having the case thrown out and Mann ordered to pay costs. He had failed to comply with a court order that he produce his Hockey Stick Data! The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) produced evidence in the form of Mann’s Hockey Stick Graph, in their 2001 report, published eleven  years after the ipcc_far_wg_I_full_report (1) 1990  showing the MWP and the Littel Ice Age had been removed!

OXYGEN-FUEL-HEAT KEY ELEMENTS OF BUSH FIRES

Wind also has a strong effect on the heat of a fire because it works like the bellows in a Blacksmith’s forge, blowing more oxygen into the fire, just like in the old days when people would use an old newspaper as a fan to get the kindling in the old wood stove going to boil the kettle and cook meals.

ADD HIGH WINDS TO THE THREE KEY ELEMENTS AND YOU HAVE A DANGEROUS SITUATION

   Huge Fire In NSW

These components have led to the development of the deadly trio of Fuel, Oxygen and Heat. Remove any one of these and fire will not be able to sustain itself. HEAT. Air temperatures have a direct influence on fire behavior and has all the requirements for ignition and continuing the combustion process. Heat from the sun is transferred to the earth by radiation.  This heat warms up the surface of the earth and the atmosphere close to the surface is in turn warmed by heat reflecting from the surface. This is the reason that the temperature above the surface is cooler than at the surface of the earth. These temperatures Continue reading OXYGEN-FUEL-HEAT KEY ELEMENTS OF BUSH FIRES →

TURNBULL BACK FLIPS ON CLIMATE CAUSING FIRES

TURNBULL AND THE GREENS MUST STOP THE POLITICISING OF AUSTRALIAN BUSH FIRES

Despite their assertions, it is clear that natural fires are actually quite rare and that the vast majority of vegetation fires arise from human causes, including deliberate arson. Statistics suggest that reducing deliberately lit bush fires would have a significant influence on the total number of fires in Australia.

Senior journalist, Chris Kenny of The Australian, drew attention to the Turnbull’s back flip from an earlier statement, less than two years ago, when he criticised the greens for suggesting climate change causes bush fires: “The lack of consistency and rationality have been exposed by none other than former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull. When he was in office, less than two years ago, Turnbull reacted strongly and rationally to claims from the Greens that disastrous fires on the NSW south coast were climate-fuelled. He said he was “disappointed that the Greens would try to politicise Continue reading TURNBULL BACK FLIPS ON CLIMATE CAUSING FIRES →

THE DOOMSDAY CLOCK EVER CLOSER TO MIDNIGHT

THE DOOMSDAY CLOCK IS WITHIN ONE HUNDRED SECONDS OF MIDNIGHT

According to the United Nations the greatest level of peril to humanity since its creation in 1947 is the threat posed by climate change and the growing nuclear threat. On climate, two major UN summits fell dismally short of the action required to limit the long-term warming to 1.5 C above the pre-industrial period set out by the Paris Agreement that scientists say is necessary to prevent a global catastrophe.

The effects were already apparent in the record-breaking heat waves and floods India faced in 2019, and the wildfires that raged from the Arctic to Australia. The UN are not able to identify what the average temperature for the pre-industrial period was. (1850-1900).

The IPCC have warned that climate change represents an urgent and a potentially irreversible threat to human societies and the planet. In recognition of this, the central aim is to pursue efforts to limit global temperature rise Continue reading THE DOOMSDAY CLOCK EVER CLOSER TO MIDNIGHT →

POPULATION GROWTH BEGAN WITH FOSSIL FUELS

AS GOES FOSSIL FUELS AS GOES HUMANITY

To a first approximation, everything we’ve done since 1900, including agriculture, has been the result of our use of fossil fuels. The biophysical driver of fossil fuel energy transcends all political boundaries and philosophies. Fossil fuels have supplied 89% of the total primary energy used throughout the world over the last fifty five years, and supply 87% of the energy used today, according to BP Statistical Review.

Agriculture started the ball rolling about 8,000 years ago, and got our population to 1.8 billion in 1900 without fossil fuels. What we now call the pre-industrial era. The biophysical driver of fossil fuel energy transcends all political boundaries and philosophies.

Politics has nothing to offer the situation. The logistic did not take off until the serious use of fossil fuels began in about 1900. Without fossil fuels we would have seen some additional growth but nothing like we have seen in the last 100 years “We are dealing with two opposing forces, Continue reading POPULATION GROWTH BEGAN WITH FOSSIL FUELS →
