  1. Yesterday
  2. This has restored my faith in democracy, or at least the ability to have an idiot in every village. An idiot in every village should be legislated.
  3. and there is your bottom line ... extra revenue for governments Climate Emergency – The New Justification for New Taxes
  4. Last week
  5. The Rise in Agriculture for the Next ECM
  6. Now who has been predicting this for a long time, the Dept of Settled Science or those two pesky dissidents? CHINESE VEGETABLE PRICES HIT RECORD HIGHS — THE RESULT OF PERSISTENT COLD AND RECORD RAINS COLD AND WET WEATHER TO BLAME FOR THE SLOWEST MAIZE-PLANTING SEASON ON RECORD
  7. What were those silly scientists thinking at the time? There is no money to be made with such conclusions... National Geographic article from 1967 - Sunspots control Earth's climate, not CO2
  8. No problems. Anything to highlight the BS predictions from shrills we've had shoved down our throat, naturally proved incorrect.
  9. No heating/cooling - a BIG difference. Water saving is from less consumption and no sh*tty leaky pipes.
  10. Thanks for the weather forecasts chief. But you're still just a boring little tit. When/if you say something which is actually interesting I'll respond. Carry on.
  11. Hard to see where the energy savings are coming from. Most of your use is made by stuff you brought with you from the house to the apartment. A few less lights couldn't account for the savings.
  12. So what were the Aborigines burning to cause such climate change? After all, it is humans that are causing such event as we're being told by the Dept of Settled Science Study suggests 1500-year-long 'mega drought' killed off original Australians Must surely be more fake news from the Murdoch press!
  13. Earlier
  14. Climate Change – the Elections Issue Germany’s New Green Deal Has Failed – Energiewende
  15. It's no completely new, maybe 10-15 years. There are windows only in the bedroom and living space, otherwise insulation is great. I rarely use heating/cooling. I haven't checked water invoices but the admin charges make up a large percentage. Energy is mainly used on kitchen/laundry appliances and computers. A lot of places have 3m x 3m bedrooms or smaller, which is too small for my liking. I prefer at least 3x4 or 12-15sqm. The main room should also be big. The one I have now is roughly 6x4.5m which includes the kitchen, so it feels spacey.
  16. I think the British Labor party should make this part of their policies for the next election and let the electorate vote on it... Labour discusses plans to bring in a 10-hour week and slash pay by 75 per cent under a radical scheme to tackle climate change
  17. Another little gem of a prediction from 2012, found in the vault of history... Enjoy snow now . . . by 2020, it'll be gone Considering it is 2019 and the ski fields opened early due to the early snowfalls, what are the chances of zero snow next year?!! That good professor must be funded by the Dept of Settled Science.
  18. It sums up the immature technology perfectly. It requires perennial government subsidies to survive/compete. Home solar panel installations fall by 94% as subsidies cut
  19. like when somebody criticises Scientology ... the zealots come after you This scientist proved climate change isn’t causing extreme weather — so politicians attacked
  20. Opportunities abound for LL and tenant here. Tenant rents a 3 bed TH for $375 pw, pays the bills and charges the other 7 people $130 pw. Picks up the spoils. Get's moved on now and again. LL is complicit in 1, so charges them $600Pw and has no restriction on residents. There is a lot of wear and tear on the joint. Something employed when the interior is a few years from it's used by date.
  21. Why do you think? Is it a new(ish) apartment? Is it more energy efficient? Better insulated? What do you spend most energy on? Heating? Cooling? Laundry? ?? Do you pay for supply of water and removal of poo, or just usage charges? I've found most of the cost is in supply. As a owner I pay that, tenants don't generally. The THs in my block have rainwater plumbed in. So the toilets, washing machine and garden hoses are rain water. Haven't had a bill yet tba. Compared to what? For what purpose? My three bed Th would suit: A couple with a couple of babies/young kids. Once the kids got past 11 you'd want something bigger; although with just one kid would probably be ok. Two or three singles sharing. A couple and a single sharing. Reality - above plus a lot of: A couple with a couple of babies/young kids ++ grand parents or other relatives living there. Share, quasi boarding houses. 2 in each bedroom, 1 in lounge and 1 in garage - sometimes more. 8 people in a three bed TH.
  22. AFP raids on the media. It appears we've come full circle.
  23. @Swaize I think a September 2019 turning point will be down. All the signs of a global recession brewing and it has been a while since we had a stock market panic. It's also the seasonal time historically for that sort of thing (September/October/November).
  24. I noticed a big difference in utility prices moving to an apartment. I pay about half less for energy, and close to half less for water. My rough estimate is a saving of around $20/week or more. So I'd factor that in if I were moving to a place with poor insulation/standalone dwelling. The annoying thing about many apartments is both the living spaces and bedrooms are too small. Not Japan-style small but uncomfortably small with children.
