    Hurricane Irmas epic size is being fuelled by global warming. Hurricane  Irma with sustained wind speeds of 295kph. and it could grow stronger has the strongest winds of any hurricane to form in the  open Atlantic.So  why did Irma  grow so strong?Most likely because climate change is making Atlantic waters even warmer.Tropical cyclones are fueled by warm surface waters .Climate scientists such as Michael Mann explain that one thing that the science is very clear on is that the strongest storms will get stronger because of global warming because the oceans are warmer.

    Doc do some homework – if the best you can do is Michael Mann, that is leaning on a very weak reed.
    Fake news dogma always lays the blame for everything on global warming/climate change because we in NZ are supposed to save the planet.

    Check out George Carlin – he explains it all here;

    Hours of chasing data on line shows one aspect graphically – the success of Fluoridation/Vaccination/Lo Fat diets, they all go to ensure reduction of cognitive ability.

    The preferred focus, such as rebuttal above, is to ‘shoot the messenger’ rather than evaluate the absolute heaps of data that shows the enormity of the con job shoved the the throats of those that choose not to see/listen.

    Is that all that are left denying global warming?

    Not many compared to the 97% of all scientists who agree that climate change is man made.

    What is waste? Is it possible that we are looking at pollution in a way which doesn’t help our need to live responsibly. Our population pressure on the environment is burgeoning so the solutions we had at the time we entered the work force are no longer appropriate. Some of the things that are called waste and are polluting our environment are really items that we don’t know how to reuse or consider to expensive to re-purpose.

    Waste Must Play a Greater Role in Net Zero New Zealand

    Remember the cowshed settling ponds we had and ho we were at pains to retain the solids and let the liquid run off into the nearest waterway. Dry the solids and spread it into the paddock that we were preparing (This was in the 50’s and 60’s)for a fodder crop. Then came the gas/urea think big scheme) and the push to sell it with the latest rye Clover mix so that we could run greater concentration of stock. The aerial topdressing boom and the rapid increase of stock from the beef retention scheme. At that time we had a neighbour who milked a small herd on a small area and my Father helped him put concrete path the length of his farm so that he could wheel barrow his fodder to the cows and his cows could walk to the shed without pugging the ground. He had his farm in 25 paddocks of about 1 to 1.5 acres each. At this time I was milking cows in Taranaki and removing chain wide boxthorne hedges to subdivide 350 acres into 32 paddocks witha chain wide race to service them. Milking 100 cows and i thought the old man and his friend were crazy. (At this time 50 cows were considered to be the smallest economic unit.)
    A yer later the grass had covered all but 9″ of the concrete and the cows would walk to the shed when he whistled. his farm was certainly efficient and his stock always well fed. He farmed on the basis that one year in seven was going to be hard so for 6 years he always had an abundance of feed but the farms I was working on we worked on the basis that we’d worry like hell when the seventh year came round and scratch through some how. His pedigree stock was sought after and commanded good prices and they were loved for their whole life, (they even called him by is name i think). I used to milk for him when i was young and he and Dad were playing bowls, they were a pleasure to to work with. He hand stripped for the wole of his milking life and had very little mastitis problem. My Fathers cows were similar in that they worked to the Plunket system and needed to be milked on a strict time schedule.
    This was handy to me in later life as I adapted a simialr system as a casual milker and used a 12 hour milking schedule and the bloke i was filling in for always wondered why we seemed to produce more particularly int he spring. (At that time i was working during the day as a carpenter so needed to have tha schedule to allow for the other job)

    What I’m trying to say in a roundabout way is that low impact farming with organic principles can lower the farm input costs and increase the profitability.

    Guess i’ve got a bit carried away there sorry about that.

    Unless we take action now to reduce our carbon emissions then I’m worried about the future of our great grand children.
    Fossil fuels area finite resource, what is it going to cost us to leave them in the ground?
    The future generations will still need some of them so we shouldn’t be in a hurry to use them all now and then worry about how to replace them.
    If we build a new economy on the use of solar energy then we should not run out.
    The transition does not need to be painful.
    We had a fairly rapid transition to steam and then later to the oil based energy that we seem so unable to see as a system we need to replace.

    many compared to the 97% of all scientists

    Another classic by hero to illustrate that the unthinking will regurgitate dogma without hesitation. In fact the oft quoted figure was 91% but when one sees the data manipulation that was needed to get that figure while the true figure of scientists in agreement was 0.3%, they will glimpse the programming that goes on.

    Of course hero will insist his 97% is based on fact even though there is no link or research to support that figure, meanwhile, if any listening the truly knowledgeable 14 from the;

    https://realityzone.com/product/inconvenientlie

    will have seen the statistical handsprings needed to get that 91%, as it is explained fully therein.

    The Central Pains Water Construction is worth looking at:
    https://www.google.co.nz/maps/place/Central+Plains+Water+Construction+Site+Area+1+(CPW+CSA+1)/@-43.5631721,171.7474645,301m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x6d2ddc099752dc05:0xa00c8db35bfd15b0!8m2!3d-43.5852521!4d171.7807192

    This is an intersting item from the information available:
    Fertiliser is applied to the Canterbury Plains to advance and maintain the nutrient levels required for pasture growth in the intensive grazing systems and high stocking rates current in the dairy industry. It is acknowledged that 30% of the applied nitrogen is leached into the aquifers and rivers (DairyNZ, 2008).
