Ship Of Fuels

February 27, 2016

By Paul Homewood




From Andrew Bolt, at the Herald Sun:



No, not a parody. The Climate Council really has invited Australian warmists to spend more than $7500 for a luxury cruise, gassing with Tim Flannery:

As part of this adventure, you will join renowned scientist and former Australian of the Year, Professor Tim Flannery – the Climate Council’s Chief Councillor – on the adventure of a lifetime along the remote Kimberley coast…

Best of all, by taking part in this expedition, you’ll be stepping up to help provide Australians with a vital source of correct and informed information on climate change…

Our custom-built vessel is fully air-conditioned, equipped with a helipad, spa, large en-suited cabins and offers indoor and outdoor alfresco areas …

Plus more gassy extras, none solar-powered:

– Courtesy vehicle to/from your Broome accommodation

– Light aircraft from Broome to Mitchell Plateau

– Return helicopter flight from Mitchell Plateau to Hunter River


Another frequent-flying warmist hypocrite:

Taxpayers have forked out ­almost $13,000 for South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill, his department’s chief executive and two political staffers to stay in a five-star hotel for the Paris climate change talks in December.

This comes after taxpayers outlaid more than $185,500 for a private film crew to follow the Labor Premier on two overseas trips, including to Paris, to produce promotional videos.

Government figures showed it cost about $53,600 for two people from Adelaide company 57 Films to follow Mr Weatherill on the Paris trip.



You could not make it up!

    “Taxpayers have forked out ­almost $13,000 for South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill, his department’s chief executive and two political staffers to stay in a five-star hotel for the Paris climate change talks in December.”

    They may have enjoyed a taxpayer-funded beano in Paris at the same time as the climate change talks in December, but Weatherill is not listed amongst the official Aussie delegates on pages 9/10/11 here:

    Nor, amongst the other thousands of freeloaders here:

      Correct, Weatherill wasn’t at the Climate Conference, just getting recorded on film in Paris at the same time to try and mislead the voters.

    Flannery ( Dinosaur Professor) and claimer of 2 meter rise in sea level by now, was also a leader on the ship of fools ice gag where they all got stuck in ice which they hoped would not be there! Also famous for buying a house on the water at the same time as scaring the planet about rising seas. Lost goverment funding when the socialists lost the last election and has started his own think tank with money from many lacking a critical mind.

      Absolutely textbook. Does anyone else question the wisdom of rescuing that ship from the ice? For all the Darwinists, it would just been “survival of the fittest” and what could be wrong with that? A public service, cleaning up the gene pool……..

    Are you familiar with US Senator Proxmire’s Golden Fleece Awards?

    You could come up with a catchy Brit-type title for a once-a-month award of your own.
    It is amazing what folks can think of to spend money on when it isn’t their own.
    Insofar as their pay and perks dwarf those of the average person I doubt they realize how outrageous the amounts they spend are.
    I’ve seen the price of a loaf of bread increase 10-fold in the past 50 years and can’t buy a loaf now without questioning the cost and likely looking for a less expensive one. I wonder if any of these “fools” shop for themselves and have similar experiences?

    ” You could not make it up! ”

    Well you could, but who would believe you ?

    Ha ha, ha ha, ha ha ha.
    ‘Ship of Fuels’
    Where did you come up with that ?

    I’ll bet the helicopter even has a wind turbine. Fossil fuelled of course.

    Warmists love to burn fossil fuels in order to go somewhere to talk about how not to burn fossil fuels. You know it makes sense :/

    This is the man who in several publications, from 2012 onwards, including one of his own books, said that CO2 produced carbolic acid in the oceans. He should wash his mouth out with soap.

    “Tim Flannery, head of Australia’s Climate Council, is of the view that CO2 falling into the ocean produces “carbolic acid” or phenol, that useful disinfectant which can still be bought on eBay in the form of soap bars. Flannery is, as always, correct in terms of the prevailing hysteria, if not real-world facts. His prophecy is affirmed by Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OAICA) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which agree that “Too much carbon is flooding the ocean with carbolic acid, with devestating (sic) effects on life in the sea.”

    He is also a colleague of Lord Deben, as a co-Director of the Prince of Monaco Foundation:

    Members of the Board of Directors:

    H.S.H. Prince Albert II de Monaco
    H.E. Bernard FAUTRIER – Monaco
    Mr. Robert CALCAGNO- Monaco
    Pr. Tim FLANNERY – Australie
    Mr. Bertrand-Pierre GALEY – France
    The Tt. Hon John GUMMER, Lord Deben – Grande-Bretagne
    Mr. Laurent Nouvion – Monaco

    Ms Julia MARTON-LEFEVRE – France
    Ms Sunita NARAIN – Inde
    H.E.Rubens RICUPERO – Brésil
    Mr. Otto STEINMETZ- Allemagne
    Mr. Björn STIGSON – Suède
    Mr. Klaus TOPFER – Allemagne
    Mr. Thierry VANDEVELDE – France

    Flannery is also on the Foundation’s Development Committee.

      Is Flannery ready to stick his finger into a volcano to stop an eruption?
