Excellent response from SkyNews Australia journalist to young people who recently protested for climate:
′′ You are the first generation to want air conditioner in every classroom; your lessons are done on the computer; you have a TV in every room; you spend all day using electronic means; most of you go to school with vehicles instead of going public transport ... you are the biggest consumer of consumer goods in history, constantly buying the most expensive clothes to be ′′ trendy "; your protest is announced by digital and electronic means....
- ′′ Kids..., before you protest, turn off the AC, go to school, turn off phones and read a book, make a sandwich instead of buying packed food!
′′ None of this will happen because you are selfish, ill-educated and manipulated by people who use you and convince you that this protest is a good cause, and in the meantime, you are enjoying a wilder western luxury.
Wake up, grow up and shut your mouth! Get informed of the facts before you protest...!

Oh... oops.  Sorry 'bout that.   blushing1

try this:


Here Dr Coleman tells us about the Climate "emergency" and how, of course, if they stop producing coal they won't be able to make steel, essential for things like wind turbines.

But never fear! For they have a solution. "Green steel", to be made using hydrogen instead of coal. Except, hydrogen is hard to come by, so apparently they will make the hydrogen using fossil fuels.




Any chance you can remove the wrong one, please @Verdi  ?  I can't seem to edit or delete it now.

HISTORIC SNOWFALL HITS SOUTH AFRICA, RARE SNOW BLANKETS CHILEAN DESERT, “DISAPPOINTING” TEMPS BESIEGE EUROPE, LA NIÑA WATCH ISSUED, + CME UPDATE

AUGUST 30, 2021 CAP ALLON

HISTORIC SNOWFALL HITS SOUTH AFRICA

The South African Weather Service (SAWS) had issued a Level 4 Warning for the weekend as “disruptive” snow and record cold threatened to sweep the nation’s higher-elevations, including the Drakensberg.
A SAWS statement read: “widespread snowfall is expected on the high-lying areas with disruptive snow in the south-west.”
However, the flakes fell much further afield than forecast — in HiltonHillcrestDalton and other parts of the province, too.
Even low-lying regions such as Drummond copped a historic blast of wintry showers.
Sleet fell here, for the first time ever!
“There were was huge excitement,” said Drummond resident and SAPeople contributor Carol Malley.
“Very rare indeed,” she added.

It was snowing in Killarney, for the first time in living memory. 

An excited Juandre Vorster (aka The Weather Hooligan) said: “Staff arrived at Killarney before dawn on the morning of Saturday 28 August, to find sections of the infield still blanketed with snow!”
Juandre shared photos from KZN residents which showed areas covered in snow for the first time in recorded history:




Temperatures plunged upon the arrival of the intense polar front.

In response, residents cranked up their electricity usage–but with this being South Africa, a high volume of electricity faults were soon reported across KZN.
Utility company Eskom issued a statement, saying it would endeavor to restore power “as quickly as possible”.
However, unplanned power interruptions continued into Sunday, Aug 29 keeping large swathes of the region in the dark and without heat as the record cold and historic snow persisted.








Substantial flurries were reported in other parts of the country, too — particularly in the Eastern Cape:






Another cold front is forecast to roll through Mon, Aug 30, though, thankfully, it is expected to be weaker.

It's called evolution, climate changes, living organisms change accordingly to adapt to change.

Nature's cycle.

Evolution is the natural progress and development of the universe, in particular planet earth - there is nothing humans can do to interfere with the process of evolution.

The only difference between now and the past is the contemporary awareness of the change through scientific study and a heavy dose of maybes.

In short, Greta Thunberg wasn't born.

Some good photography..

Ooops, speak of the devil and who should appear..

Greta Thunberg: Scotland 'not a world leader on climate change'

By Kevin Keane

BBC Scotland's environment correspondent

Published 4 hours ago

Campaigner Greta Thunberg says she doesn't regard Scotland as a world leader on climate change.

The Swedish activist told BBC Scotland she recognised that some countries "do a bit more than others" but that none were coming close to what was needed.

On the Scottish Greens' deal to enter government, she said some politicians were "less worse" than others.

But she said tackling climate change was not as easy as voting for a green party.

The 18-year-old said: "Of course there might be some politicians that are slightly less worse than others. That was very mean but you get the point.

"It's a hopeful sign that people want something that's more "green" - whatever green means - but in order to solve this we need to tackle this at a more systemic approach."

Mountains set the pace of evolution, not climate change, say scientists

Ever-changing landscape responsible for creation of more new species of animals than historical climate change, claims study

By
Joe Pinkstone,
SCIENCE CORRESPONDENT

Mountains play a bigger role in evolution and creating new species than climate change, a study from the University of Cambridge has found.

Scientists pooled three million years of data looking at the rise and fall of Earth’s mountains and found that as the surface rises, the rate of speciation increases.

They discovered that the fluctuating landscape was responsible for the creation of more new species of birds and mammals than historical climate change, recent elevation changes and soaring temperatures in the modern world.

“Our results stress that historical geological processes rather than traditionally studied macroecological gradients may ultimately generate much of the world’s biodiversity,” the researchers write in their study, published in the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution.

“More broadly, as the Earth’s surface continues to rise and fall, topography will remain an important driver of evolutionary change and novelty.”

The reason that mountains have such a potent impact on the world’s fauna is because of the dramatically different conditions and habitats they sustain and create. For example, the habitats at the base of a mountain will be very different to those near the summit, with temperatures plummeting and conditions becoming harsher.

The mountain also acts like a barrier, physically dividing two areas of land. This has been well documented for islands, with the water acting as a barrier.

Climate Change  - Page 40 Telemm96

Charles Darwin noted the evolutionary impact of geographic barriers when he observed the different size and shape of the finches on the Galapagos Islands.

The physical barrier divides habitats and stops animals mixing and mating, which speeds up evolution and the emergence of new species.

“Often at the tops of mountains, there are many more unique species that aren’t found elsewhere,” said Dr Andrew Tanentzap of the University of Cambridge’s department of plant sciences, and senior author of the paper.

“Whereas previously the formation of new species was thought to be driven by climate, we’ve found that elevation change has a greater effect at a global scale.”

Dr Javier Igea, also of the aforementioned Cambridge department, and first author of the paper, added: “It’s surprising just how much effect historical elevation change had on generating the world’s biodiversity.

“It has been much more important than traditionally studied variables like temperature. The rate at which species evolved in different places on Earth is tightly linked to topography changes over millions of years.

“This work highlights important arenas for evolution to play out. From a conservation perspective, these are the places we might want to protect, especially given climate change.

“Although climate change is happening over decades, not millions of years, our study points to areas that can harbour species with greater potential to evolve.”
