Coding Badly

MAD since 1962.
Before Reagan there was some doubt about "eliminate all human life".  He put a solid end to that sliver of hope.

If we lose a large percent of humanity due to the coming greater insanity that warming promises and yet humans manage to survive it will be with greatly reduced knowledge and abilities even in groups that didn't start as self-retarding religious nuts.

When rich people consider alternatives to their path one thing is paramount: will our kids rule?

Wish we could give 20 degrees to our friends down under.   :smiley-sad-blue:

And a few inches of rain from here just to stop the landslides. Unfortunately we can't afford the shipping.

Are there people in Calgary who don't have snowsuits? No way you just pull one pair of jeans over another and an extra sweater under the coat... you wouldn't be able to go out how many months a year?

How close to the polar circle do you live? I knew a guy named from north Ontario who said they lived close, ride in the car and the first few miles was bumpy till the rubber warmed up. We get your cold tomorrow for maybe a whole week only by the time it gets here it's about -5C or so.

Hot enough thankyou and hotter elsewhere...
Although -27C off our current temps would be good for or firefighters.  :)

Was going to give you -20 (minus) i.e. if you have 40'C then you would be down to 20 :)


Well, its -33°C this morning, the truck's tires were square :(.
The Doctor was late!



Canceled our picnic lunch:

why do you live in the only place where hell freezes over
A creaking creeping shadow
stiff against the freezing fog
glares at a tickless watch.

Time has failed him -- all things shall pass.

Coal-powered Australia might take a look at the Solana Generating Plant in Arizona, USA.

It's awfully good of Australia to dump veggies around for the surviving animals, saw Roos eating carrots in the news here.

Unfortunately the Koala population has more strict dietary requirements, even down to a particular variety of gum tree.
So they will be harder to put back into the wild, especially as their own areas are stuffed,  they would be invading areas already with a Koala population.
Some may never go back into the wild. :(

As for alternative energy sources, bloody politicians, bloody big business.
Also if we don't burn our coal, we will be continuing to sell it to China along with our Natural Gas and iron ore, so we can buy back processed iron/steel we supplied and still pollute the earth.

Degrasse Tyson was once in a discussion about Mars, he was asked about terraforming it.

He replied that the human race can do that easily, we have already terraformed our earth!!!!!  :o :o :o
Or is that TERROR-FORMED?????

(PS, if they can get a good deal, the roos and other wildlife could get a gig advertising fresh vegies for COLES, ALDI or WOOLIES....)

I do about 90% of my shopping there.
Other supermarkets for my coffee pods, bread and diet cordial.
I bought my grandson his Iron Man toy at ALDI, it was the proper Marvel model.
$20.00 as against $35.00 on the net and $50.00 from the shops.
Makes all the right noises too.

Where I live pop 101,000 we have 5 stores.
The other thing I like is there is always someone watching the checkout lines and they instantly open extra checkouts when needed.
The other supermarkets are hopeless in that respect.

Hi,

Australia   7.69 Million km2
USA          9.83 Million  km2
The accuracy of the fire coverage is a bit suspect as it may be a show of fires over a 4 week period or longer, definitely not a single day snapshot.
Tom.... :(

clippity clop, clippity clop, I am sure that I can hear horses.

The scale of the Australian fires is such that the CO2 released must surely have global impact. Just the area of black charred ground is going to have local if not global climate impact.

These figures are not normal. The entire continent of Australia has had above average temperatures. Perhaps even more worrying than the bush fires is wild life simply dying of heatstroke.

I have heard that the same climate phenomenon that exacerbated (or even caused) the bush fires is being blamed for the locust problem in Africa. Apparently the swarm is now covering an area of 900 square miles and is growing. The report said that the number of insects may increase by x500 (that may not equate to the same increase in swarm area).

Meanwhile China heroically tries to deal with a new coronavirus that appears to be coming more infectious. As long as it does not also become more deadly all is well, otherwise - clip clop, clip clop.

On happier notes;
Your Aldi does not sound like mine, opening new lanes to cope with customers!!!

As for Koalas either I have a sick mind or I recall that they feed their offspring their poo which helps develop gut bacteria that aid digestion of local leaves. As a result koala rescuers have been giving rescued koalas "poo shakes" from animals in their destination location with some success in rehabilitating them.
