Climate change driving entire planet to dangerous 'tipping point‘ Scientists "don’t think people realize how little time we have left,” to stop irreversible and disastrous changes to Earth’s climate systems.

EVIDENCE THAT IRREVERSIBLE changes in Earth’s climate systems are underway means we are in a state of planetary emergency, leading climate scientists warn. A cascade of tipping points could amount to a global tipping point, where multiple earth systems march past the point of no return, they say.
That possibility is “an existential threat to civilization,” write Tim Lenton and colleagues in this week’s Nature.
Such a collapse of Earth’s systems could lead to “hothouse earth” conditions with a global temperature rise of 9 degrees F (5 degrees C), sea levels rising 20 to 30 feet, the complete loss of the world’s coral reefs and the Amazon forest, and with large parts of the planet uninhabitable.
A global emergency response is required to limit warming to 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit (1.5 degrees Celsius), they warn. “The stability and resilience of our planet is in peril,” they say.
“It’s a nasty shock that tipping points we thought might happen well into the future are already underway,” says Lenton in an interview.

The National Climate Emergency Summit.

The evidence is clear. The world is standing at the edge of major ecological and humanitarian tipping points, and time has run out for half measures.

Thoughts for the Week.
For forty years, the Billionaire George Sorus has spent millions supporting ‘Gun Control Australia’, ‘Get Back’ ‘Friends of the ABC’ to promote his socialist, disarmament appeasement and to that end has installed his puppets on both sides of Parliament. He has paid the media to make Australians believe that they have No Rights, No meaningful Constitution and No protections under the law of the land. He has weaponized his vast wealth to erode those rights in every corner of the country by supporting anti-rights initiatives and anti-firearm politicians. He has waged a war on people who have committed no crimes, harmed nobody and merely wish to be left alone to mind their own business. Now, they are making the move to re-categorise Straight Pull, Bolt Action Shotguns and Rifles. By making them a different category most firearm owners will not be able to retain or apply for them.

They have Border Force (Gestapo) refusing entry into Australia of firearms on the pretext that there is a crimp in the magazine, (press metal magazine are impossible to make without crimping of some sort) and serial numbers that are not the size that they have dictated. Aside from George Sorus buying and selling our universities, media and political parties we have his twin socialist hero’s buying Australian real estate, electrical companies, water supplies, and bribing our political parties. These Chinese businessmen are not super smart entrpreneurial capitalists, behind everyone of them is the slave state monolith of the Communist Chinese Government.

China have been programming the heads of our government since Gothic Prime Minister Gough Whitlam and even if we don’t believe that Prime Minister Harold Holt was taken away from Portsea on the 17th November 1967 by a Chinese submarine, China was the greatest beneficiary, as we have had “Wimps Are Us” for Prime Ministers ever since. Since the signing of the Lima Agreement we have born the cost, given away our manufacturing and production, (even food is being imported from China) given away our security as an independent nation and if China has a little cough, our politicians Kow Tow in submission.

In 2015 the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) reportedly warned the major political parties that two of Australia’s most generous donors had “strong connections to the Chinese Communist Party” and that their “donations might come with strings attached”. In December 2017, an unsourced report in The Australian said ASIO had identified candidates at state and local government elections whom it believed had close ties to Chinese intelligence services “in what security officials assess as a deliberate strategy by Beijing to wield influence through Australian politics”. Most notoriously, a Labor Party senator, Sam Dastyari, was forced to retire after Fairfax Media revealed that he had recited Beijing’s South China Sea talking points while standing alongside a Chinese citizen donor – and then counselled the donor to place his phone aside to avoid surveillance of their conversation.

According to ‘The Australian’, China’s security chief, Meng Jianzhu, warned the Labor leadership about the electoral consequences of failing to endorse a bilateral extradition treaty: “Mr Meng said it would be a shame if Chinese government representatives had to tell the Chinese community in Australia that Labor did not support the relationship between Australia and China.”

“We shall see how the counsels of prudence and restraint may become the prime agents of mortal danger; how the middle course adopted from desires for safety and a quiet life may be found to lead direct to the bull’s-eye of disaster.”
Winston Churchill, The Gathering Storm

Is ‘Appeasement’ Treason? 2
Here we are 20 million people, defenceless, dependent on China for food, clothing and toilet paper, sitting on a continent that has a major section of the worlds resources. Already, the Australian people have very little say in the countries direction, just think for how long have the majority opposed the importation of illegal, unwanted, immigrants, refugees who are not really refugees but economic invaders, how long have the people called out for a government that would defend our borders.

“If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
Winston S. Churchill, The Gathering Storm

Chinese Concentration Camp, or re-education camp

A few months ago I became particularly interested in this Defence Subject when on watching a few minutes of the TV program ABC Drum, which has a panel of typical Bimbette’s, (No Bimbo’s as the ABC and SBS only have female experts on everything, except for the fraud Bruce Pascoe of course who follows their traditional suppression of the truth), where one of the Bimbette’s experts came out with one of those all knowing statements. “China, since its communist state began in 1949 has never invaded another country”. I immediately growled under my breath, tell that to the Tibetan, Vietnamese, Koreans, Indians, Xinjiang, otherwise known as East Turkestan, with a population of more than 20 million mostly Ugyhurs. Turkestan was independent till the Chinese invasion of 1949. Tell that to the brave Umbrella protestors in Hong Kong. They know that death awaits them eventually, but still protest and face gas and bullets with Umbrella’s. The islands between the Chinese Mainland and Taiwan have been the target for Chinese artillery for many years. They might also have forgotten the Spratley Islands that China has invaded and turned into armed installations is the territory of the Phillippines. So is this mis-information paid for purposely, orchestrated lies, or is it just ignorance perpetuated by the blind leading the blind?

The Spratley Islands are NOT Chinese Territory.

In the previous editions we have well covered the what is called China’s extraterritorial influence described variously as “United Front work” and “influence operations”. “sharp power”, and then to “Hard Power”.
In other countries, this process may begin with a Confucius Institute, scholarships, grants, but the next thing you know you must self-censor discussions China considers sensitive. In the face of this authoritarian onslaught of China’s misinformation, cyber hacking, bribery, economic coercion, theft of technology, and intrusion in internal politics. This seems to be the formula that has been so successfully used in Australia and has been even more successful in New Zealand.

“Delight in smooth-sounding platitudes, refusal to face unpleasant facts, desire for popularity and electoral success irrespective of the vital interests of the State, genuine love of peace and pathetic belief that love can be its sole foundation, obvious lack of intellectual vigour in both leaders of the British Coalition Government, marked ignorance of Europe and aversion from its problems in Mr. Baldwin, the strong and violent pacifism which at this time dominated the Labour-Socialist Party, the utter devotion of the Liberals to sentiment apart from reality, the failure and worse than failure of Mr. Lloyd George, the erstwhile great war-time leader, to address himself to the continuity of his work, the whole supported by overwhelming majorities in both Houses of Parliament: all these constituted a picture of British fatuity and fecklessness which, though devoid of guile, was not devoid of guilt, and, though free from wickedness or evil design, played a definite part in the unleashing upon the world of horrors and miseries which, even so far as they have unfolded, are already beyond comparison in human experience.”
Winston S. Churchill, The Gathering Storm

In my August Bulletin “Thoughts of the Week” to summarise I explained Australia’s lack of an adequate defence force, our lack of Defence Industries, the scenario of China building an Island base at Long Island, (Chesterfield Islands) and then moving on to Lord Howe Island. The inability and lack of interest for any other nation to move them. (As with the South China Sea Spratley Islands, the USA has not stepped in to throw China off the Islands that the Philippines claims as its territory) The probability that China dominating all of Australia’s sea and air ways would blockade, preventing the importation of fuel, or manufacturing materials, in less then 25 days diesel fuel and petrol would run out, food would not be delivered to the shops, Australia the land of plenty would starve. Australian politicians would surrender, do a deal and fly to the South of France. The Australian population being superfluous to the Chinese requirements would die out.

In my September Bulletin, “Thoughts of the Week” I showed how the Chinese Communist Party leadership massacred its own young people at Tiananmen Square and supplied a speech from Chief of General Staff and Vice -Chairman China’s Military Commission Comrade Chi Haotian stating that they are preparing the way for world domination. Australia is a part of that world and is one of China’s main targets.

“ If China’s global development will necessitate massive deaths in enemy countries; will our people endorse that scenario? Will they be for or against it? The fact is, our ‘development’ refers to the great revitalization of the Chinese nation, which, of course, is not limited to the land we have now but also includes the whole world.
Only countries like the United States, Canada and Australia have the vast land to serve our need for mass colonization.”

Over 2 million men in the Chinese Army, Does that mean every Australian Firearm Owner needs only to shoot once?

In the October Bulletin Thoughts of the Week. I included photos of the October 1st 70th Anniversary Parade in Beijing (of the Communist take over) where the Chinese Government showed off its military technological superiority over the United States and quoted the Chinese President Xi Jinping, delivered a speech invoking the “Chinese dream” of national rejuvenation, his grand vision of restoring the country to his perceived past glory.

“No force can stop the Chinese people and the Chinese nation forging ahead.”

“There is no force that can shake the foundation of this great nation,” Xi said

“Unity is iron and steel; unity is a source of strength,” Xi said, according to an English-language transcript from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

There is an Obvious Pattern Forming Surrounding Australia.
Besides taking over the Spratley Islands and turning it into a Chinese Military Base with airports and manufacturing a deep water port facilities it claims the 200 miles of territorial waters around it. China has leased the Port of Darwin on our mainland. It leases two airports in Western Australia. China was within an inch of formalising a 75 year lease on the Island of Tulagi. Tulagi is in the Solomon Island on the northern edge of the Coral Sea. The deal would allow the communist country authority rights to the island’s deep water port, oil, gas, fishing, forestry and tourism.
Though the plan for a 75-year lease was unsuccessful, another of China’s plans was recently executed. A $825 million deal was struck to allow China to redevelop the Solomon Islands’ Gold Ridge mine. Chinese ambassador Xue Bing, described the deal as an “early harvest”.
Along with the profits from the mine, all port facilities, roads, rail and bridges built to service it will also remain in China’s control.


A former intelligence chief of the US Navy’s Pacific Fleet, Captain Jim Fanell, said that China’s interest in the area could have future impacts on Australia. “They’re (China) interested in this area because it’s essentially the lifeline or the choke point between America and Australia and New Zealand,” he said. “China has built the navy that people said they were never going to build. China has deployed their fleet to places which they said they were never going to sail to and they are sending their fleets around the world.”. “They believe that they’re supposed to be the rightful leaders of this new global order. The British century, the American century, now we’re going to have the Chinese century. That’s their vision.”

“With the flip at Kiribati and the Solomons, and what they’re doing in Vanuatu, what they’re doing in Fiji, you start to see a trend line here,” China quite clearly wants to dominate East Asia and the Pacific, pushing out the U.S. as the region’s dominant military power. Shortly, China will hold an invaluable base controlling the approach to Australia, and if the Solomon Islands borrow from China to pay for ports and other facilities and default, they could open the door for untrammelled military development.

“John Adams said infamously, “that a way to subjugate a country is through either the sword or debt”. China has chosen the latter,”

Captain Fanell, above quote appears to be the proof of it. As well as the Chinese building a deep water port in Fiji and Kiribati large enough for Aircraft Carriers, they have recently gained full control of the Sri Lanka Port of Hambantota. Under heavy pressure and after months of negotiations with the Chinese, the government handed over the port and 15,000 acres of land around it for 99 years. The large Chinese loans, inability of the Sri Lankan government to service the loans, and subsequent 99-year Chinese lease on the port have led to accusations that China was practising debt trap diplomacy.

Chinese Submarines have already began to call in for re supply visits The transfer gave China control of territory just a few hundred miles off the shores of a rival, India, and a strategic foothold along a critical commercial and military waterway. During the 2015 Sri Lankan elections, large payments from the Chinese port construction fund flowed directly to campaign aides and activities for Mr. Rajapaksa, who had agreed to Chinese terms at every turn and was seen as an important ally in China’s efforts to tilt influence away from India in South Asia. The payments were confirmed by documents and cash checks detailed in a government investigation. It took control of Nigeria’s Tin-Can Island Container Terminal (TICT)


The String of Pearls is a geopolitical theory on potential Chinese intentions in the Indian Ocean region. It refers to the network of Chinese military and commercial facilities and relationships along its sea lines of communication, which extend from the Chinese mainland to Port Sudan in the Horn of Africa. The sea lines run through several major maritime choke points such as the Strait of Mandeb, the Strait of Malacca, the Strait of Hormuz, and the Lombok Strait as well as other strategic maritime centres in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, the Maldives, and Somalia. Chinese-controlled deep-water port near the mouth of the Persian Gulf in Gwadar, Pakistan, which is also the crux of China’s massive $62 billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor project. The port at Gwadar, which is connected to the Karakoram Highway linking Western China and the Arabian Sea, is and should be a concern for the Australian government and an even greater concern to the Indian government, which should view it as powerful evidence of Chinese and Pakistani collusion against Indian security and economic interests.


90% of Japan’s imported oil flows to Japan through the sea lanes of the South China Sea, and any undue Chinese influence in the region is seen as a potential threat to Japanese economic security. Moreover, Japanese officials envision that, in the case of a more pervasive Chinese power projection capability in East Asia, territorial disputes between China and Japan in the East China Sea and Philippine Sea might escalate to a point of outright military confrontation. In particular, the Senkaku, which is claimed by China but controlled by Japan, and Ryukyu island chains, are identified as key friction points between the two countries.

“Strength, moreover, could have been used in righteous causes with little risk of bloodshed. In their loss of purpose, in their abandonment even of the themes they most sincerely espoused, (Australia) Britain, France, and most of all, because of their immense power and impartiality, the United States, allowed conditions to be gradually built up which led to the very climax they dreaded most. They have only to repeat the same well-meaning, short-sighted behaviour towards the new problems which in singular resemblance confront us to-day to bring about a third convulsion from which none may live to tell the tale.”
Winston S. Churchill, The Gathering Storm

Bougainville is another hot spot where China has been financing an independence movement, to break away from Papua New Guinea. Apparently, if the Independence movement succeeds in the current elections there is no doubt where the finance will come from to re-open the huge reserves left in Panguna (copper) mine. Given the new strategic landscape, between the retreating USA (America First movement) we can bet that Bougainville will have new deep port facilities very quickly.


While relations between Timor-Leste and Australia remain strained, because of Australia’s 2004 bugging of its cabinet office, the young nation, on half an island just 720 kilometres from Darwin, has asked China to help train its Navy. The request was made by Timor-Leste’s defence and security minister, Filomeno Paixao, at talks this month with Rear Admiral Yu Wenbing of the People’s Liberation Army Navy. The talks took place during the visit to Dili of a Chinese warship and are an unsettling reminder to Canberra of Beijing’s growing military influence very close to home. The request for China to train Timorese naval officers was confirmed by a local defence source.

The officers and crew of the 5,548-tonne Qi Jiguang, a Type 679 training ship, received a gala welcome as the vessel was escorted into Dili Harbour by the Timorese patrol boat Kay Rala Xanana. The Shanghai-class patrol boat is one of two purchased from China by Timor-Leste in 2008 to protect its ocean fishery. Dili regards strengthening bilateral cooperation and economic and defence ties with Beijing as a useful hedge against what some in the government consider undue influence and pressure from the West, including from Australia.
China, which has poured money into East Timor in recent years, has financed everything from the presidential palace to a $490 million deep-water port near Dili to an electricity grid that has given power to at least 80 percent of the population. And it has also spent a significant amount of cash near the proposed location of the on-shore part of the Greater Sunrise project, known as Tasi Mane. China has built the first leg of a new four-lane highway linking the airport in Suai with other southern coastal towns that will host the LNG plant, a petrochemical refinery and a supply base. And in April, state-owned company Timor Gap signed a $943 million contract with a China Railway Construction Corp. unit for a new port to help facilitate the main LNG plant. China signed a contract providing US$9 million toward the building of a new headquarters for the military in East Timor.

For a long time, China has been eyeing the Australian Antarctic Territory, a large portion of the Antarctic that by Canberra’s definition belongs to us. In 1951, Australia and a group of interested other countries signed a document called the Antarctic Treaty System.
Australia claimed six million square kilometres of the icy continent — around 42 per cent of its total land. The Treaty recognised the sovereignty claims of Australia. However, this is not recognised by China, who were not signatories to this treaty, and they don’t recognise Australia’s claims.
Over the past decade, China has slowly been expanding its reach in Antarctica by creating networks of stations in Australia-claimed territory.


Dr Adam Lockyer, a security expert at Macquarie University and author of Australia’s Defence Strategy:
Evaluating Alternatives for a Contested Asia. Dr Lockyer said there are several reasons for China’s interest in the region. “For one thing, it’s part of their broader strategy for global domination. The rising superpower is increasing its presence everywhere, from South America to the South Pacific.”
Similar to its pursuits in the South China Sea, China is seeking to increase its influence, but fall just short of sparking an actual military conflict with the United States and its allies.

China says its outposts on the Antarctic region are purely for scientific purposes. But they could also potentially be used to aid the country militarily.“Beijing can make legitimate claims that the installations and outposts on the Antarctic are for scientific purposes, and you can’t argue with that,” Dr Lockyer explained. “The fear is that they have a dual use, and that is that they can be used in a confrontation with the US.” But also, the region could prove hugely lucrative, holding large deposits of natural resources.

“The US and China’s use of their Antarctic ground stations to control offensive weapons systems and relay signals intelligence, all while conducting legitimate scientific activity has the potential to shift the strategic balance that has maintained peace in the Asia-Pacific for nearly 70 years. “In a time of conflict, if the US denied others access to GPS, China and Russia could employ BeiDou and GLONASS to guide strike weapons.”
China and Russia currently rely on GPS, but these host satellites are all controlled by the US. This means that, in the event of a conflict, America’s first tactic would be to switch these all off, leaving China blind and lost.
This is why China and Russia are working to build their own network of navigation satellites. One of the best places to communicate with those satellites is Antarctica. China’s BeiDou and Russia’s GLONASS are navigation systems. They’re not actually weapons, but they can be used to guide cruise missiles and ballistic missiles to different parts of the world.

But Dr Lockyer says it’s worrying Canberra doesn’t seem too concerned about China’s possible ulterior motives. “The Australian government doesn’t seem too concerned about it,” said Dr Lockyer. “They very rarely turn around and look at what’s going on in Antarctica.” “It’s like they forgot to lock the backdoor.”

It is highly unlikely that the government forgot to lock the back door, or the front door, but seem to be locked into a silent panic. They can feel the noose tightening, but are petrified of speaking out about it, or heaven forbid, announcing general conscription and a re-armament plan. The Australian government could not ignore the lack of fortitude of the USA in the loss of the Philippines territorial islands in the South China Sea. The Philippines are hardly going to declare war on China, so China moves a thousand miles closer to Australia. When China can take the Australian Territory in Antarctica and no one says, boo to them, when they can take Lord Howe Island and place a few aircraft carriers and a few hundred missiles, will anyone say, boo then?


Some experts say two years, I would hope for three years, but watching the Chinese advances in technology and organised power play on the international chess board they will choke the life out of Australia in four years or sooner.
We quickly need a re-incarnated Winston S. Churchill to awaken the people and re-arm our nation. If we do not find one, our future and the future of our children will be at best death, or worst slavery, or worst still, like the million incarcerated Uyghur (wigger people) who are just hosts for the “Body Part” market. We need new secret weapons. Weapons like their underwater drones that can be unmanned and still sink their landing ships. We have to make our own fighting drones that can beat the Chinese ones. We have to have Sovereign Industries that produce our defence products without relying on imports as without Air and Sea superiority re-supply will be impossible. Do not look for anyone to come and help us they have too much to lose. The Chinese need ‘living space” and we in Australia are up for grabs. We need leaders who forget to mention Global Warming or Gun Control. We need leaders who can re-kindle this ancient spirit, and put fire in our bellies. As it seems our future is going to be a lot harder, before if ever, it gets better.
Sir Winston S Churchill inspired nations with his use of his words and actions.
“We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender”.

Australia’s famous poet Henry Lawson, created similar nationalistic emotions with his choice of words. Albeit at a slower pace but the intent to arise, unite and prepare to fight for your country is very strong.
Every Man Should Own a Rifle.
“So I sit and write and ponder, while the house (parliament) is deaf and dumb,
Seeing visions “over yonder” of the war I know must come.
In the corner – not a vision – but a sign for coming days
Stand a box of ammunition and a rifle in green baize.
And in this, the living present, let the word go through the land,
Every tradesman, clerk and peasant should have these two things at hand.

No – no ranting song is needed, and no meeting, flag or fuss –
In the future, still unheeded, shall the spirit come to us!
Without feathers, drum or riot on the day that is to be,
We shall march down, very quiet, to our stations by the sea.
While the bitter parties stifle every voice that warns of war,
Every man should own a rifle and have cartridges in store!”
By Henry Lawson.

That was how patriots felt in the 20th Century and I admit, that is the Century that I’m from, so even with my old bones and creaky body, I would get a truck load of ammo and my rifle to my station by the sea. I might not be very mobile, (it does make running away improbable) but I can still shoot better than most, but would I have anyone on either side of me? I might have to shout into the distant past of history, to find a new Horatius to help guard the Gate. Ron Owen

We have left it too late for any half arsed measures to stabilise climate change! There is no time left for changing from coal power to solar, we can't wait that long & the government will not do it anyway! You want to do something NOW? Then turn off your coal powered electricity to your home, because when climate change gets worse I think the grid will go down anyway!

Climate Change Survival Here & Now!

The sun going down yesterday, it looked the same coming up this morning.

Climate Change Survival Here & Now!
Whilst the climate change skeptics & deniers carry on with their normal lives completely oblivious to what is happening in the rest of the world, people like myself face each day with trepidation.  It is still spring time here in New England NSW Australia, yet the temperature outside yesterday was 45 degrees, 35 degrees in the shade, that is far hotter than our normal summer temperatures here. Not far away there are catastrophic bushfires, & we are enveloped in smoke, so much so that even without the extreme heat I could not work outside.
Cattail Pond is barely visible through the smoke from the bushfires.

We have had to change our gardening methods; everything now must be under shade cloth to stop it from burning. Unfortunately that does not stop the possums from eating our garden due to the fact that they are suffering from a shortage of food in the forest. Our forest trees are dying rapidly, Cattail Pond is almost dry, & we are running low on drinking water in our tanks. Frankly I find this all pretty scary, I have fought raiders & bushfires in the past, I have been attacked by feral dogs, wild bulls, buffalo, wild boar & people, but none of that was as daunting to me as climate change is now, because to be honest, I have no idea whether or not we can survive this!
The people should be out on the streets protesting this, & although I know many actually are, there are simply not enough to make any difference. I honestly think that in the not too distant future there will be more people protesting, & I think that these protests will no longer be peaceful. I think that just like in Japan right now, these protests are going to turn very violent. Unfortunately it too will not make any difference, because our corrupt Australian government has too much invested in mining/drilling/fracking, burning & selling fossil fuels. They are perfectly prepared to see climate change cause TEOTWAWKI & then possibly a mass extinction event just for their own short term monetary gain.
That makes no sense? No it doesn’t, I have no idea where they think they will be able to spend their money. I suppose they must have plans in place, a doomsday bunker, or perhaps first a move overseas where the climate is not quite so bad as in Australia. Have they no concerns for their children & their grandchildren? It would appear not, just like the cigarette tobacco executives, so long as they are making money they will lie to the public regarding the dangers & perhaps even allow their own children to smoke!
So what can we do as a minority? Well nothing I guess. The only thing we can do is prepare for what is coming. Make plans for leaving the city when things get really bad, better still leave the city now & live off grid. But even living off grid is no guarantee of survival. We can’t live without water, the nearest town to me has already run out of water, & the nearest small city is on water restrictions with no rain forecast for at least the next six months. Is that going to be six months of 45 degrees of heat?! Yesterday I spoke for the first time to my wife about the possibility of having to move from Australia, I mean if we are getting conditions like this in New England, then where else in Australia would it be any better? Maybe something will happen; perhaps the winds of change will blow something else our way. Perhaps TEOTWAWKI will be survivable & this will be the end of fossil fuels in Australia. Perhaps.
Take care out there & keep prepping.

Gun Politics 101 - an easy to understand guide for Aussie shooters

What is the first aid treatment for hyperthermia?

What is the first aid treatment for hyperthermia?
Get the person into air conditioning if possible or out of the sun and into the shade.
Spray the person with cool water, or apply cold wet cloths or ice packs to the armpits, neck, and groin. Fan air across the person to increase cooling. These methods help cool the person more quickly.
Do not give the person anything to drink if the person is not alert or is vomiting.
If the person experiences seizures, keep him or her safe from injury.
If the person vomits, turn the person on his or her side to keep the airway open.

How do you warm up someone with hypothermia?

How do you warm up someone with hypothermia?
Seek immediate medical attention for anyone who appears to have hypothermia. Until medical help is available, follow these first-aid guidelines for hypothermia.
Be gentle. When you're helping a person with hypothermia, handle him or her gently. Limit movements to only those that are necessary. Don't massage or rub the person. Excessive, vigorous or jarring movements may trigger cardiac arrest.
Move the person out of the cold. Move the person to a warm, dry location if possible. If you're unable to move the person out of the cold, shield him or her from the cold and wind as much as possible. Keep him or her in a horizontal position if possible.
Remove wet clothing. If the person is wearing wet clothing, remove it. Cut away clothing if necessary to avoid excessive movement.
Cover the person with blankets. Use layers of dry blankets or coats to warm the person. Cover the person's head, leaving only the face exposed.
Insulate the person's body from the cold ground. If you're outside, lay the person on his or her back on a blanket or other warm surface.
Monitor breathing. A person with severe hypothermia may appear unconscious, with no apparent signs of a pulse or breathing. If the person's breathing has stopped or appears dangerously low or shallow, begin CPR immediately if you're trained.
Provide warm beverages. If the affected person is alert and able to swallow, provide a warm, sweet, nonalcoholic, noncaffeinated beverage to help warm the body.
Use warm, dry compresses. Use a first-aid warm compress (a plastic fluid-filled bag that warms up when squeezed) or a makeshift compress of warm water in a plastic bottle or a dryer-warmed towel. Apply a compress only to the neck, chest wall or groin.
Don't apply a warm compress to the arms or legs. Heat applied to the arms and legs forces cold blood back toward the heart, lungs and brain, causing the core body temperature to drop. This can be fatal.
Don't apply direct heat. Don't use hot water, a heating pad or a heating lamp to warm the person. The extreme heat can damage the skin or, even worse, cause irregular heartbeats so severe that they can cause the heart to stop.

Climate Change: 20 undeniable facts and figures

Australian government Now Controlling & Ruling the People!!!

'Absurd' bail conditions prevent Extinction Rebellion protesters 'going near' other members.
Civil liberties groups say bail conditions imposed on Sydney climate change activists are usually reserved for bikie gang members.
We are skating on thin ice here people, we have already seen many of our civil liberties revoked, our freedoms taken from us. We have senseless firearms restrictions & gun confiscations. This is the first sign of a government who is seeking to control & overpower the people!!!

What Do You Think Will Happen?

What Do You Think Will Happen?
What do you think will happen as climate change gets worse? It is perfectly obvious to me that no one is going to try & stabilise climate change.  There is too much money being made by our government from the mining, drilling, fracking, selling & burning of fossil fuels, so stopping the use of these fossil fuels is not going to happen.
Climate change is accelerating much faster than previously predicted, so planning on reducing the use of fossil fuels within the next 20 years I think will be useless. In Siberia the global warming temperature is already past the safe mark, permafrost is melting, has melted! The ground has become unstable, carbon is being released into the atmosphere, & there is a risk of long buried pathogens & viruses emerging from the ground!
Here in Australia the temperatures are summer high in spring! The trees in my forest are dying, we are low on water. There was no snow this past winter, & very little rain. We are in drought conditions here & there are bushfires all around us.
Australian farmers are already experiencing crop failures & stock losses; this must inevitably lead to food shortages. If the heat of summer is such that city people are going to be reliant on air conditioning, then what are the chances of black outs?  I could be wrong, but I think we are running out of time. Time, what am I saying, no matter how much time we had, the government is NOT going to replace coal powered electricity with solar power, & they are not going to stop the clearing & logging of native forests. Bushfires are destroying thousands of acres of bush land every day.
What do you think is going to happen? Will a majority of people say “enough is enough” in time & take control of this situation? Will the present peaceful street protests turn violent through frustration & anger? If climate change causes TEOTWAWKI, will the military be called in to take control of the cities? Or will the government bailout & head for their doomsday bunkers?

Don’t Blame the Scientists, Blame the People!!! Climate Change.

Don’t Blame the Scientists, Blame the People!!!
I have lost count of the number of times climate change deniers have quoted past predictions saying that they never came true so climate change is bullshit. Scientists are not super human, they do the best they can with what they have to work with. No one can 100% second guess nature, nature is fickle, unreliable. How can a scientist tell if another iceberg just vanished, or another section of permafrost has been lost? How can they tell if a massive release of carbons suddenly erupts from previously frozen ground?
Every time another ice sheet melts, or more carbon is released, climate change accelerates. You can run as many simulations as you like, but it is still just guesswork based on the information you have at the time. Climate change is accelerating much faster than previously predicted, & we are running out of time to stabilise climate change at a temperature that can support life comfortably.  We are only two thirds of the way through spring here & already it is too hot outside. Imagine what summer is going to be like!!!

The Australian government is not going to stabilise climate change, it is corrupt, greedy, & selfish & it does not want to lose votes!!! Fossil fuel corporations are not going to stop mining, drilling & Fracking, climate change deniers are not going to change their environmentally damaging lifestyles, & the majority of Australians  are too apathetic, ignorant & gutless to take control of the situation. We have peaceful protesters that are not prepared to turn off the coal powered electricity to their homes, we have environmental organizations that lodge petitions, but do nothing else. They don’t protest on the streets, they just keep asking for more money to lodge more petitions!!!
If any serious demands for action are ever made, it will be after some major disaster has taken place, & by that time it will be too late. If you are serious about your children’s future happiness, if you are serious about saving a future for your grandchildren, then start prepping NOW! You will NOT be able to stabilise climate change, you will NOT be able to make any significant difference to climate change at all, but if you start prepping now, you may be able to save your family when climate change creates TEOTWAWKI.

The Survival Connection Forum for Australian & New Zealand Preppers & Survivalists.

Climate Adaptation Isn’t Surrender. It’s Survival

It seems to me that everyone is ignoring the one thing that could stabilise climate change, to stop burning fossil fuels & to stop destroying native forests. Instead they are still stuck on making money from fossil fuels whilst trying various band aid solutions to the problem. Meanwhile we are fast running out of time to do anything! We can't reverse climate change right now, we can only stabilise climate change. Even IF we stopped burning fossil fuels & destroying the forests right now, the global temperatures are still going to continue to rise for a while. How do they think people are going to be able to live in a climate that is 5 degrees warmer than now???!!!
Don't wait people, start prepping NOW!
