Southeast Australia Temperatures Also Spiked During The 1930′s

Like in the US, the 1990 IPCC report showed that afternoon temperatures in southeast Australia reached their peak in the 1930′s – and then plummeted.

    No no! That’s pre-adjusted data. Climate Experts now say that South East Australia in the 1930′s was under an ice sheet and at least 4 degrees cooler than now. (I can make up crap as good as any alarmist) There are frozen kangaroos to prove it!

    Huff Po and MSNBC… Plus 97.5% of other experts and Scientists disagree… You Lie!!

    Mr. Goddard, I don’t know where to put this but I am going to drop this in a comment here. It is off of this topic. I apologize.

    Many are aware of what is going on with the Bundy ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada. I think I know exactly why this is happening. First of all, I want to let people know that Bundy isn’t the only one facing this exact same thing at exactly the same time. They are doing the same thing to another rancher in Iron County, Utah about 75 miles north.

    The crap about the desert tortoise is just crap. It is not an endangered species. BLM has been slaughtering them by the hundreds because they don’t have more of them than they can deal with. Besides, the Bundy ranch is in a pretty built up area on I-15 just outside Mesquite. Ravens are the primary threat to desert tortoises in built-up areas. They are just trying to get the cattle off the BLM land and it has nothing to do with habitat preservation.

    They want to use the land for large scale solar development and first they have to get the cattle off of it. The current director of BLM seemed like a strange choice to me. He has only been with BLM for less than three years. Prior to that he was a “senior adviser” to Harry Reid. His degree is in political science with a masters in international relations and after college he was an international election monitor. So why is he at BLM? Here’s why, from his BLM biography:

    Kornze was a key player in the development of the Western Solar Plan and the agency’s successful authorization of more than 10,000 megawatts of renewable energy, surpassing a congressionally-established goal 3 years ahead of schedule.

    If they can get those cattle off that land and begin solar power development with huge government grants and subsidized loans, they can get a kick back of a significant portion of that money in the form of political donations. I am going to post some references but I don’t know what your wordpress settings are for allowing links in a comment so I am going to play it safe and place one here and a couple more in subsequent comments.

    Reference 1: BLM slaughtering tortoises. http://www.fox5vegas.com/story/23256865/desert-tortoise-faces-threat-from-its-own-refuge

    This is reference number 2 to another rancher about 75 miles north of Bundy in Iron County Utah. They are rounding up his cattle, too. They claim he hasn’t paid fees but the rancher claims BLM hasn’t tended their fences in 20 years and on open range the cattle wander in on their own.

    I suspect this is going on with a LOT more ranchers but many of them might believe they are the only ones.

  5. crosspatch says:

    And finally reference number 3. The biography of Neil Kornze who was confirmed as director of BLM yesterday but has been running the place for the last year or so (even though he has only been there a little over 2 years).

    crosspatch,
    Glad to see you here and thanks for the insight. Goddard bumped the WordPress setting up to three links per comment because I kept getting kicked into the ether.

    Your analysis makes sense. This is another example I found a few years ago:

    1. Compliance to building codes is used to kick all the homeowners out of the land in Antelope Valley

    2. Sunpower gets oodles of boodle from Obummer:

    4. Warren Buffet Buys Antelope Valley Solar Projects for $2.5 Billion

    http://oilprice.com/Latest-Energy-News/World-News/Warren-Buffet-Buys-Antelope-Valley-Solar-Projects-for-2.5-Billion.html

    …The small profit margins expected from the SunPower facility mean that it has struggled to find financial backing, especially from banks. Chief Executive Tom Werner believes that Buffett’s involvement will now make SunPower more credit worthy….

    5. Construction Starts on Warren Buffett’s Solar Project:

    …Construction has launched on a solar project its developers are calling the world’s largest, on more than 3,200 acres straddling the Kern-Los Angeles county line west of the Antelope Valley town of Rosamond. Antelope Valley Solar I and II are being built for MidAmerican Solar, a Phoenix-based energy development company indirectly owned by financier Warren Buffett.

    http://www.kcet.org/news/rewire/solar/construction-starts-on-warren-buffetts-antelope-valley-solar.html

    I can not say whether the land cleared of homes mentioned in the 2011 article (Owners were ordered to literally dismantle the houses) is the same as the land used for the solar farms but it is suggestive. This is the description from one of the articles linked:

    ….The roughly 20-mile by 25-mile Antelope Valley is a wind- and sun-rich area that was also a thriving agricultural region until the water table dropped some decades ago. It is about an hour north of Los Angeles, on the southern side of the Tehachapi Mountains where one of the first utility-scale wind projects was built in 1982….

    The new solar projects constitute only a small portion of the planned solar and wind development goes on. The promise is of a renewable energy mecca unlike anything ever seen….

    Do not forget it was the state of CA that curbed water for irrigation by deciding the snail darter (a bait fish) needed the water more.

    More:

    ….Antelope Valley Solar I and II are not to be confused with the nearby First Solar project Antelope Valley Solar Ranch, whose construction was halted by Los Angeles County officials recently after serious dust control violations at the site. Though locals probably dislike the First Solar project more, Antelope Valley Solar I and II have come in for their share of criticism as contributing to the overall industrialization of the formerly rural western section of the Antelope Valley. Despite having somewhat less habitat value than other places in the Mojave slated for energy development, the site was habitat for burrowing owls and a few other sensitive species of Mojave Desert wildlife.

    When built out, which is expected to happen by the end of 2015, the dual project’s photovoltaic panels will deliver a maximum of 579 megawatts of power to the utility Southern California Edison. MidAmerican claims that its project will provide 650 temporary jobs and pump $500 million into the economy of the Antelope Valley….

    This smells to me like they brought this guy into BLM in order to develop BLM land for solar energy projects and in order to do that, they need to get the cows off the land. They probably will allow goats, though, once the solar projects are built in order to keep the weeds down now that they are adding shade and water to the surface.
