@Watts Up With That?: An update from Peter Ridd on his legal case against @JCU

Dear All, Just a little news on what has been happe­ning. The legal matters are slowly grinding through the system. We were succe­ssful this week in a legal hearing to combine the two legal matters (first censure and the termin­ation) so that it will now all be done in one court thus saving funds. At…

@Jo Nova: ABC comedy, the jokes on you — Here’s to a holiday on stained mattr­esses in the back yard

Thank the ABC. This is the best comedy I’ve seen them do on “climate change” — albeit unwitti­ngly.  The ABC has a new comedy show on Wednesday nights called RoadMap to Paradise.

This is Big-​Gover­nment Comedy. You’ll swear this was made by a skeptic. No really.

The turbines are now being viewed by technical experts as “ticking time bombs”. According to a comme­ntary by Daniel Wetzel of online German Daily ‘Die Welt’, the aging rickety
