Claims of a climate catastrophe have been put on hold this week, as record low temperatures -for the time of year- threaten much of Australia — maybe Hollywood can ask for its pocket-change back…?
A mass of cool air has engulfed the Aussie continent this week, bringing much needed rain to those parched-areas affected by the bushfires. Too much rain has actually deluged some parts, with flash flood warnings issued in most states, and golf-ball-sized reported in the east:
The rains, although widely welcomed, have brought on a new hazard: funnel-web spiders.
In the MSM’s latest attempt to paint EVERY weather event as the coming Apocalypse, the wet conditions could see a plague of these deadly little critters invading Aussie homes.
However, the Australian Museum delivers a quick reality check: “There are many species of funnel-web spiders in Australia but only male Sydney Funnel-webs have caused human deaths. There have [only ever] been 13 deaths recorded from male Sydney Funnel-webs.”
As with most alarmist claims, a little digging often reveals the facts to be rather contradictory.
Bushfires and the Sun
Speaking of alarmist claims, let’s take another look at the bushfires. Because although widespread and undoubtedly a local tragedy, to say the fires were driven by increasing CO2 is an absolute farce, and an affront to science. These fires, like all other events in nature, run on repeating cycles.
The chart above reveals the worst NSW fires in the modern era were back in the 1970’s-–a decade that experienced weak solar activity, similar to that which we’re witnessing today.
Low solar activity = a drier Australia — a disruption to the jet stream being the main driver of this.
Australia’s dirt has been baked-red by the sun’s routine scorching.
And things have been a lot drier in the past…
THE 1891-1903 ‘MEGADROUGHT’
The so-called ‘once in a century drought’ ran from 1891 to 1903, and resulted in an ecosystem collapse affecting more than a third of the country. The drought was one of the world’s worst recorded ‘megadroughts,’ which at its peak saw much of the country receive less than 40 percent of its annual rainfall, with 1902 (solar minimum of cycle 13) remaining the driest year on record.
CSIRO researcher Dr. Robert Godfree said: “In New South Wales, most rivers stopped flowing and dust storms filled dams, buried homesteads and created ghost towns as people fled. Wildlife and stock starved or died of thirst. Native birds and mammals died under trees, in creeks, and on the plains. Tens of millions of sheep and cattle were killed, and hundreds of millions of rabbits died of starvation after stripping the landscape of its plant life.”
History is repeating…
The ‘megadrought’ of 1891-1903 falls within weak solar cycles 12 & 14, cycles very similar to the one we’re currently in the record-deep solar minimum of now — cycle 24:
Rising carbon dioxide is not the cause of droughts and bushfires, solar activity is–and the forecast isn’t good where that’s concerned, with the Sun’s output expected to fall of a cliff as it descends further into its next Grand Solar Minimum cycle:
Furthermore, and rather ironically, the higher levels of atmospheric CO2 (plant food) we’re currently experiencing will actually be assisting with bush regrowth:
And another thing, now that all that excess fuel has been burnt-off, we can expect the Aussie bush to see a vastly reduced burn area over the next few years.
The same thing has just happened in California.
Here, the 2019 burn acreage was down some 85% on the 2018 fires — the lowest level since 2011. Again, this was achieved not because of environmentalism (in fact, the exact opposite is true when it comes to wildfires), but because much of the fuel-load had been burnt-off in the previous year.
Returning down-under, latest GFS runs reveal this week’s anomalous cold will persist into the weekend, particularly for southern parts:
GFS TEMP ANOMALY (C) Jan 23 — Jan 25
Don’t fall for bogus political agendas — the threat is/was/could never be heat, life on Earth has ALWAYS thrived during times of persistent warmth. No, it’s the COLD that we should fear, along with an outburst from the sun tossing our grid-dependent civilization back to the stone age within a matter of hours.
We live in a world where the true threats are being hidden from us, where plant food has been made the bogeyman–and where the solution to this fictional problem is a debilitating global carbon tax.
Arm yourselves with the facts, and prepare according — relocate if need be, and grow your own.
This upcoming “catastrophe” is entirely survivable — all anyone need do is reject the empire model and return to the Earth.
