Despite the green/ABC propaganda, the recent Australian floods were not caused by coal, livestock or cars. Time is driven by the winds; solar energy powers the winds and draws moisture from the oceans to them. These eternal natural rainmaking processes have recently been aided by two additional factors.
First, a large La Niña weather event in the Pacific Ocean left warmer waters closer to Australia.
Second, there is an increase in underwater volcanism in this region as evidenced by volcanic eruptions near Vanuatu.
The history of the Earth’s climate is written in the rocks. Anyone who bothers to read this recording will see that recurring ice ages, not global warming, pose the greatest threat to life on Earth. Even in today’s Holocene Warm Era, the Little Ice Age was a time of war, famine, and distress, while the Medieval Warm Period heralded a time of peace and plenty.
The Earth’s climate is driven by winds powered by convection currents that derive most of their energy from the Sun.
Eastern Australia is currently under the influence of a large La Niña event in the Pacific Ocean. These periodic ENSO (El Niño-Southern Oscillation) weather cycles are Earth’s most significant short-term weather events and have been identified in Earth’s climate as early as 1525, long before the Model T Ford and Watt steam engine. .
The great El Niño of 1877-1878 heralded China’s Great Famine, caused droughts in Brazil, and caused failures of the Nile floods and the Indian monsoon. Even the Titanic fell victim to El Niño when it encountered an iceberg blown far to the south by El Niño winds.
The famous Australian forecaster, Inigo Jones, was well aware of natural climate cycles as early as 1923 – long before coal, cattle and cars could be blamed for ‘global warming’.
ENSO oscillations are not driven by atmospheric conditions or human activities – they react to the rhythm of a geological drum. The timing and strength of ENSO is largely determined by volcanic activity and the movement of tectonic plates, particularly along the Pacific Ring of Fire and the mid-ocean ridges separating the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
But largely hidden from view is another huge weather factor – underwater volcanoes.
Currently, volcanic activity (mostly sub-oceanic) is melting parts of the polar ice caps and releasing volcanic dust and other natural gases into the oceans and atmosphere. The warmed seawater expands, raising sea level and increasing evaporation which produces clouds and rain. Currently, the volcanic eruption in Tonga is evaporating seawater, which is likely to add to record La Niña rains in eastern Australia.
Volcanic hotspots can also melt methane bound to seafloor ice, releasing large, unmeasured amounts of methane into the atmosphere.
Man’s coal, cars, and cattle are meager compared to what nature can make.
Hysterical children and political agitators keep bleating about “man-made global warming”. But climate history shows that the real danger to life on Earth is ‘global cooling’ – a return of the great continental ice sheets creating a frigid zone north of a line from London to Chicago. Russians and Alaskans know of mammoth bodies frozen in ice and understand this threat, but the Western world continues to revere Saint Greta.
A bleak northern winter is approaching. As the blackouts kick in and the lights start to flicker, the coal is suddenly all right again. But the Europeans and Australians are still planning a Net Zero ritual sacrifice of their farmers on the alarmist altar. None of these sacrifices will deter La Niña, or stop the volcanoes, or feed the people.
Someone should ask Australia’s new green government:
“If CO2 emissions are the problem, why did we ban emission-free nuclear power? »
