This is bad how?

David Farrar blogs about the Climate Change update from the Office of Prime Minister’s Science Advisory Committee. Being a believer of “Climate Change” and GW he thinks it is reasonable and we should all tug our forelocks.

But I’m not like that. I read comments like this and wonder what the fuss is all about.

The report does, however, make broad predictions for various regions around the country over coming decades, outlining wind, temperature, rainfall and seasonal extremes.

It said by the turn of the next century, Auckland would enjoy 40 warm days above 25C each year.

Really struggling to see how that is a problem.

In the South Island, frosts in coastal spots would be rare by 2050

Yep, still no problems that I can see.  

There would be less rainfall in summer and autumn over the west of the North Island

Oh the travesty!

Gisborne and Hawkes Bay regions stood to lose up to 10 per cent of its winter and spring rainfall.

Around the country, Kiwis could expect a climate 0.9C warmer by 2040, and 2.1C warmer by 2090, according to mid-range projections for average temperature rises.

This is bad? Really?

Temperatures between now and October are likely to be above average in the North Island and in the north of the South Island, according to a seasonal outlook issued yesterday by the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (Niwa).

Sea surface temperatures are also forecast to be above average along the east coast and further offshore, with conditions close to average to the west and in the Tasman Sea.

Not finding too many issues with “climate change”, in fact we should be welcoming it.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
