    OT. Mr. Goddard if you are knowledgeable about snow flakes I have a question.
    Yesterday in it was snowing fairly heavily with air temperature in the high 20’s. Some of the flakes were of a type I had never seen before. They were small slivers similar looking to a short hair. Maybe 3/16 inch long. Do these types have a name and a cause?

    Draconian solutions for a non-existent problem.

    Ross Garnaut – the alleged economist:
    Sept 30, 2008: “THE “unprecedented” financial crisis — no matter how severe — will be short-lived and should not stand in the way of global action on climate change, Ross Garnaut says.”

    Now an alleged climate expert, peddling equally worthless climate advice?

      lol, well, I’m a firm believer in “going with what you’re good at”. Apparently, Mr. Garnaut is good at giving a “bum steer” from time to time.

    Typical alarmist weasel words “may be worse than expected”, which includes the possibility that they aren’t, or won’t.

    “While the good professor has making us all feel guilty every time we turn on our leaf-blower or toaster, up in Papua New Guinea, his mine was destroying about 60 square kilometres of ocean floor, and it is just getting started. The mine has a life expectancy of 20 years so by the time it stops, toxic-waste will have destroyed coral reef and ocean life over a vast area of the Pacific. It is creating a dead-zone.

    While the good professor was telling us about the threat of rising sea-levels, he and his company were doing their bit (to make them rise) by dumping millions of tonnes of mine-processing residue into the Pacific Ocean. While he was telling this nation about the environmental dangers to Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia, his own Company, Lihir Gold, was destroying the reefs of the Bismarck Archipelago, on Papua New Guinea’s north-eastern approaches.

    The mine sludge contains cyanide and heavy metals and the practice of dumping toxic mine-waste, submarine tailings, into the sea, is banned in China, Canada and the United States. It is banned by the UN. But in his webcast to Lihir shareholders last month, Professor Garnaut made the extraordinary statement that “The LGL Board, [Lihir Gold] has always adopted responsible environmental management. Our environmental track record of Lihir is exemplary.” Really, Ross?

    In his CV, which is available on the internet, Ross Garnaut describes himself as a “Distinguished Professor” and Chairman of PNG’s Sustainable Development Program Limited. Apart from his $300,000 a year job as chairman of Lihir Gold, Ross Garnaut is also listed as a director of Ok Tedi Mining Limited of Papua New Guinea. Ok Tedi, is in the Star Mountains of western Papua New Guinea and is home to one of the world’s really awesome, and very impressive, environmental disasters.

    In fact, the Ok Tedi mess is considered the worst environmental disaster in the Southern Hemisphere, where over 20 years, 80,000 tonnes of mine waste has been dumped into the Ok Tedi and Fly rivers, every day. BHP, the then co-owner of the mine, sought legal indemnity from the PNG government for the pollution and environmental damage it caused in exchange for billions of dollars in compensation and restoration. Ok Tedi affects 50,000 people and 120 villages and will take an estimated half a century to clean up. “
