  1. I doubt they would refuse. The missiles could be purchased together with their nuclear subs which can launch them, ready made, off the shelf. Probably cheaper than the R&D we've been paying for failures.
  2. Does this sound awfully familiar? California Climate Policies Facing Revolt from Civil-Rights Groups
  3. The article states: Why? Why can't Australia buy already functioning nuclear missile systems from the US?
  4. But of course, what else could it be: How Climate Change Is Impacting Global Hunger certainly not the effects of population growth, cyclical effects of low sun spots, political instability, etc.
  5. The added costs will need to be paid by someone ... consumers eventually. Telstra's power bill shock: Energy costs jumped by $200m in two years
  6. That also classifies as defence spending. Instead of those expensive customised French subs, it probably would have been cheaper to wait until drone subs are available (with nuclear warheads) or just buy the fit for purpose nuclear subs from the US. Also totally agree - that approach is not going to happen here.
  7. You will find similar was said about the coming ice age and eugenics that I mentioned earlier. The Nazis formed an entire ideology around eugenics - all scientific tests show that the germanic race is superior. Climate change will go down as yet another fine example of mass pyschology and how the sheeple can be manipulated. I'd be surprised if within 10 years 'climate change' doesn't quietly disappear to save face.
  8. The latest scare mongering from the 'unbiased' Washington Post: Climate change is real. Welcome to the new normal. Now let's compare to the weather in 1926: Miami-Dade County 1926 Hurricane
  9. Outback NT Rural Report I'll bet on Indigo's forecast over the globull warming one:
  10. Another climate change prediction from 2004 that will be declared as false. Now the Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us So $squillions spent on this BS predictions and we have people still believing the unadulterated BS!
  11. If renewables are now cheaper as some claim, then what is the concern about abandoning the RET? It would stand on its own if it was cost competitive.
  12. Defence spending is never an option as you never know what the other side will do. You only have to read world history to know that. What has been the cost of moving from the cheap, reliable fossil fuels to renewables - $squillions around the world. All the carbon limitations have forced industry & consumers to bear expensive changes to support what is an unreliable technology that is not as cost efficient. I'm totally agnostic as to how power is generated. I'd be quite happy for all subsidies & limitations to be removed and let the cheapest and reliable energy source(s) win. What could be fairer than that?
  13. So overall not change in size? Mass balance of the Antarctic Ice Sheet from 1992 to 2017
  14. For EVs to fully replace oil burners, they need fast charging, range and ability to charge in the middle of nowhere. Scottish battery ‘breakthrough’ could charge electric cars in seconds
  15. People are entitled to their own belief system. But when it gets imposed on others and worst of all, at great cost to the general public, it is a different matter altogether. There is no irrefutable evidence for the drastic actions taken. I expect the current version of the theory - 'climate change' (the previous 'globull warming' has already been debunked as its predictions have failed to materialise) will go down with the Ice Age theory that gripped scientists 40 years ago and Eugenics over a century ago. But people will pay much more for this one and I'm betting nobody will be held to account when it is debunked. As I've said before, we don't have the choice of not paying for stupids' stupidity. Alberta farmers fret over recent snowfalls that delayed harvest, damaged crops - officially still summer there.
