Spot on in my opinion. It is interesting to draw parallels with the NZ political situation where both major parties remain Globalist. This could see the New Conservative Party debut with a roar at the next election.

If walls don’t work, why does Obama have a wall around his house?

The neighbours must be regretting the day that the Obama’s moved in.

Whaleoil world news quiz

12 out of 12 ain’t bad …

It is a constant source of wonder that climate doomsday scenario after climate doomsday scenario fails to come true and yet the faithful continue to believe and the media continue to parrot climate doomsday scenarios. The GWPF has put together a list of the top 12 debunked climate scares of 2018 for us. Many of these have already been covered by articles here on Whaleoil but it is nice to be reminded of them. The Stuff and Nonsense editorial team would no doubt be very surprised to find that the science is not as settled as they think. Quote.

January 2018:  Worst-case global warming scenarios not credible: Study

PARIS (AFP) – Earth’s surface will almost certainly not warm up four or five degrees Celsius by 2100, according to a study released Wednesday (Jan 17) which, if correct, voids worst-case UN climate change predictions.

A revised calculation of how greenhouse gases drive up the planet’s temperature reduces the range of possible end-of-century outcomes by more than half, researchers said in the report, published in the journal Nature.

February:  ‘Sinking’ Pacific nation Tuvalu is actually getting bigger, new research reveals

The Pacific nation of Tuvalu — long seen as a prime candidate to disappear as climate change forces up sea levels — is actually growing in size, new research shows.

A University of Auckland study examined changes in the geography of Tuvalu’s nine atolls and 101 reef islands between 1971 and 2014, using aerial photographs and satellite imagery.

It found eight of the atolls and almost three-quarters of the islands grew during the study period, lifting Tuvalu’s total land area by 2.9 percent, even though sea levels in the country rose at twice the global average.

It ain’t half cool, Mum

Caption: No, these are not satire.

An old Monty Python sketch, “The Royal Nay Vee”, has that formerly stodgy bastion of British tradition and discipline going all-out to be cool and hip, to appeal to the Yoof. As an immaculately white-clad lieutenant commander dons Ray Bans, smokes dope, and mumbles about “the fascist press”, an excitable commodore leaps on-screen, declaring that, “The Navy is Out Of Sight! Come together with the RN! It really is Something Other Than Else!” Then it cuts to a psychedelic, rock’n’roll recruitment ad, with the slogan: Can you dig it, man?

Ha ha, like, droll, baby.

Now, Baby Boomer satire has become Millennial reality. Quote:
