    • I’m not a climate change sort of guy.
      But this winter has been just about the mildest I can remember.
      Hardly any frosts on my car.
      Only one or two blankets on at night.

      • It has been mild this year as it was in 1987, 1998, 2003, 2013 and this year.
        So in 35 years about one in seven years it is mild.

        Normally it is cold and snowy in winter in Minnesota. It is a northern U.S. State and inland.
        When the Coen Brothers (orig from Minnesota) were filming the movie ‘Fargo’ in 1995 there was a virtually a no snow winter so they had to use artificial snow and do some filming in Canada to get snow shots.
        It happens.
        I was at the Grand Canyon Dec 1999 and it was very mild. Ok minus 8 Celsius at night but days were Ok.
        There were smatterings of snow on the ground. I took a scenic flight over the canyon and the pilot said that this time last year (Dec 1998) there was 16 foot of snow and the average was 8 foot at that time.

        As the bank teller said to his Chinese customer : Fluctuations.

        Weather is Nature.
        Nature delivers on a Bell Curve/Normal distribution curve.
        There is a bubble in the middle and extremes out each end.
        So last week there was a place in Europe that had its highest temperature for 74 years.
        That means every other day for the previous 74 years it was cooler than that day in 1945.
        Then it was not – for a couple of hours one day in 2019.
        This is what climate alarmists ignore.

        The warmest day in the USA was 106 years ago in 1913. It has not been hotter since.
        Australia is within 6 months of 6 decades since its warmest day. 2 Jan 1960. Most of the climate alarm sheeple were not born then, so buy into media driven lies.

        Numbers speak the truth which is why climate alarmists have to lie to perpetuate the transfer of wealth from nations that got off their arse in the 1800s and established schools and hospitals and legal systems to nations that are too lazy and stupid to do so.

        The annoying thing is that most (non thinking) climate alarmists do not even know they are doing this. I would imagine Simon Bridges could not work that out. With his science background Nick Smith should know this but one wonders as he is a politician by trade.

    More of the left’s storm troopers, at what point does it become OK to go after Soros? He seems to be behind everything that is fucking up the world at present. Looks like he is bank-rolling Extinction Rebellion – I’m sure we’re going to see these nutters in 2020 here.

            They are migration tracks.

            Did you notice John Key’s infatuation with it? Did it not seem odd to you?

            It was by design, by those that own him. Remember, he rubbed shoulders with the real leaders. High powered bankers and world elites.

            How do you divide a country? Literally, put a line through it.

            Look over here, not there!!

            If you google “cycle” tracks anywhere in the world they all have a main trunk line.

            The 2030 agenda stipulates the enforcement of massive reductions in fossil fuel reliance and an unprecedented reduction in population.

            Aging a population is intentional. Better than a war. Mass depletion in a relatively short period.

            The agenda’s aim is to restrict people (slaves) to 4 km’s either side of said line.
            The worlds population of 8 billion or so is to be reduced to 500 million. In the name of saving the planet.

            Trump knows this, Orban knows this, Salvini knows this and so do a few more.

    • Yeah, I understand the importance of the topic. I just dislike videos in general because it takes 5 minutes to watch, while you can read an article written about the same content in 30 seconds. It is much less laborious to read something (for me) than it is to watch a video. But I guess I come from a time when reading was a skill people needed and used.

    • This is a Public Service Announcement because the media will not tell you the truth; the public servants will not tell you the truth, and the elected troughers will not tell you the truth:
      700 words, summary at the end.

      So there are more than 70 Local Authorities in NZ (Councils ) but no loud call for them to merge.
      There are 20 DHBs and loud, regular calls to merge.
      The Councils have bugger all oversight (utterly crappy L.G. Ministers going back more than 10 years) and get away with a lot of crap.
      They have captive audiences and can hike rates to cover their incompetence.
      There is also an assumption of democracy when only about 40% of voters exercise the right.

      …but the DHBs have tight oversight from M.O.H. and some have had commissioners appointed in the past e.g. 2015 Southern DHB. The M.O.H. appoints 4 of the DHBs Directors.
      If this model applied to NZ Councils few would escape an external commissioner.
      Most DHBs have done well (the crappy ones being Wanganui, Hawkes Bay and Southern ) with the budget allocation but some have had massive population rises in the last 8 years esp. the Auckland based ones without correlated increase in funding.

      DHB Funding is based on population and these factors:-
      “The formula takes into account the number of people who live in each DHB catchment, their age, socio-economic status, ethnicity, and sex. It also has mechanisms to compensate DHBs who service rural communities and areas of high deprivation.”

      A properly run census by Two-Mummys Shaw in 2018 would help here but the failure of this bi-decade event has meant flying blind with a 400,000 increase in population since the 2013 census and not having detail of where to allocate funds. This has meant under funding to some DHBs.

      There are a number of factors that affect application of funds allocated.

      -The big thing is a DHB has baseline funding they must provide traditionally but then again new matters arise e.g. the measles comeback, so they have to provide for traditional requirements PLUS matters arising.

      -aging population – but this is in part offset by primary health care in earlier years flowing through. e.g. now free doctor visits to 13 yo.; free dental to 18. The irony is that you give people better health in their early and middle years and they hang around long enough to get old people diseases.

      – there is a big negative offset by bringing in people from countries that have generally poorer healthcare – China, India, Philippines, South Africa – so they have existing conditions that were attended to in young NZers that are not attended to in their countries and they put extra strain on our healthcare.

      – big immigration of people from places that have crappy diet but continue this diet in NZ where food options are better. They continue eating crap with the bad health outcomes they had back in the old country. These places include India and the Pacific Islands.

      That is a quick insight to a complex matter that many DHB staff do not even understand.

      It is another leg of the issue where NZ allowed massive immigration without looking at the co-requisite requirements like houses, roads, sewage, schools, etc etc; and to ask about it is fecking racist.
      Both Labour and their Lite version are guilty here.
      NZ is not alone with AU and UK among others.
      Fecking around with the DHB structure is poor focus as there are far wider issues and the DHB model is good. It could be rejigged to about 12 DHBs but hey lets address the causative issues first ..and that won’t happen.
      E&OE.
      This does not cover every aspect of a complex matter.

      In summary:
      >The DHBs do a good job with what they receive. The structure more or less makes sense
      >The health spend has not kept up with the net increase in population
      >the spend goes on existing matters but then has to be stretched to new matters such as measles and meningitis; magically from the same dollar allocation
      >There is no census data to determine fair allocation of funds so DHBs in fast growing areas are underfunded. Co-incidentally: the population/immigration explosion started in 2013 under Labour Lite – the year of the last census
      > Immigration in this time has been from places that have poor diet and poor primary health care so there is extra pressure to play catch up healthcare of new immigrants – ergo a greater per capita health budget requirement for which there is no incremental funding.
      > it is racist or some such shit to speak the truth. It is so good that Dame Devoid has STFU.

      This information is provided as a P.S.A. because the mediatards are too dumb to ask questions and too busy inventing lies, hating on Donald Trump, and telling climate fabrications to lay this out. I have not read the article or whatever that WG links to. It will not educate me.
      Plus, Reverend David Clark is a dunce and liar. That is part of the PSA. 🙂

  4. Govt To Create Safe Zones Around Abortion Clinics
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/114751896/live-government-announces-abortion-reform
    “Safe zones Little is asked why he is giving the Government power to set 150-metre “safe zones” around abortion clinics. These would stop people protesting and handing literature to people seeking abortions in these zones. He says these would be created on a localised basis.

    “Approaching a woman going to an abortion clinic and throwing leaflets and pamphlets in her face or chanting various dreadful epithets at them for going through with that health decision is pretty dreadful,” Little said”.

    I have no skin in this game so couldn’t give a toss really except to say that any MP but especially a Green(the most vocal supporters of the right to protest) who votes for this is just a complete hypocrite as it goes against the everything they “apparently” hold so dear.
    I would have thought the same arguments about being subjected to harassment and abuse could be advanced on behalf of people trying to enter petroleum conferences, weapons events, rodeos etc but I don’t see these people being given “safe zones” away from protesters.
    What it says once again from these authoritarians is we will demand the right to protest when we disagree with your cause but when we support your cause we will happily deny others the right to protest on some spurious pretence of harm.

      If someone wants to climb your office block, not your problem.
      If Lucy Clueless is up the mast of your fishing boat you are still allowed to carry on to sea, with hanging on tight being her responsibility.
      If some nitwit from Waiheke climbs your tree, it isn’t your problem if he’s injured when you legally fell it.

          • Reason I ask:

            * Protest is a reasonable right; we all expect freedom of expression
            * Harassment is not a reasonable right; there’s a crossing of boundaries between two sets of rights
            * Some situations are sensitive and have emotional context

            • The anti-abortionists haven’t lost the right to protest & they shouldn’t. What they are going to lose is the right to personally abuse & harangue people seeking a legal medical procedure.

              There’s a right to protest & there’s a right to personal space. That’s what this part of the law change is about.

                That about covers it. The nuts with a sandwich board or placard mumbling inanities from a well thumbed Bible don’t concern me. Rather it’s the lunatics who push into the women’s personal space, right in their faces yelling at them.

                I recall walking down the street when the anti South African rugby protests were on. I wasn’t going to the rugby & I really didn’t give a stuff about what happened in Africa but I had this scrawny unwashed creep put his face about two inches from mine, screaming while covering me with spittle.

                I was a pretty big boy & I hauled off & smashed him in the face with everything I had. He went down like the sack of shit he was & I walked off.

                That’s the difference between protest & getting personal.

              • So why do people seeking an abortion need a legislated safe space from abuse and haranguing but other people going about their lawful business who are subjected to the same kinds of protest don’t get afforded the same protection?.
                It’s called making special rules for select groups of people and I thought Act and other right wing parties were supposed to be against that type of thing.
                Obviously only sometimes.

                • Do you agree that for a woman undergoing an abortion it may be a very emotional time? She may be wrestling with the thought that she is killing her unborn child, he may be experiencing all kinds of mental anguish at that point.

                  A “weapons event” or “petroleum conference” hardly has the same context.

                  I do agree with the concept of protesters needing to be kept a certain distance from what they are protesting against. Be that at any event, be it a “petroleum conference”, be it a “weapons event” or be it an “abortion clinic”. The right to protest doesn’t trump the right of people to go about their business, there will be a middle ground where both are possible.

  5. New Zealand’s forestry policy is in a mess. We have drifted into a situation where the big decisions are made outside of New Zealand. Governmental forestry policy is like steering a dog by the tail. And this particular dog has a mind of its own.

    Let there be no doubt that forestry has been and will be of great importance to New Zealand. The problem is that key decisions affecting forestry and hence New Zealand land-use are being made outside of New Zealand. The key decisions are being made by international investors who are figuring ways of making money in a new global environment where there is lots of capital looking for a home.

    Good luck taking on the $1.5 trillion/annum rent seeking climate change industry. The globe is littered with CO2 boondoggles. “Germany’s Federal Court of Auditors is even more forthright about the failures. The shift to renewables, the federal auditors say, has cost at least 160 billion euros in the last five years. Meanwhile, the expenditures “are in extreme disproportion to the results,” Federal Court of Auditors President Kay Scheller said last fall, although his assessment went largely unheard in the political arena.”

  6. I have no problems with criticising aspects of democracy while praising its existence. Thus this quote has the same effect on me as fingernails scraping a blackboard:

    ……”But his unbiased opinion, his mature judgment, his enlightened conscience, he ought not to sacrifice to you, to any man, or to any set of men living. These he does not derive from your pleasure; no, nor from the law and the constitution. They are a trust from Providence, for the abuse of which he is deeply answerable. Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion”…..

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edmund_Burke

    This crap was part of a speech by Burke, a conservative within the Whig Party to “the Electors at Bristol at the Conclusion of the Poll ” in 1774. It has been used ever since as justification by lying parliamentarians who promise one thing to their electorate yet support something entirely different.

    Should any hopeful seek to represent me let him/her be on notice that I’m perfectly willing & able to make up my own mind on issues, particularly ones that involve conscience votes. I don’t seek your wisdom nor your judgement…….just your ability to say aye or nay according to the majority of the people who put you there.

    Newshub can reveal the Labour Party has been forced to review an internal investigation into bullying, sexual harassment and sexual assault by a Labour staffer.

    The complainants say the party’s done nothing to improve its processes since the sexual harassment allegations at last year’s Young Labour summer camp.

    Seven party members and officials laid complaints this year accusing a senior Labour staffer of unacceptable behaviour ranging from bullying and intimidation to sexual harassment and sexual assault.

      After NZ’s own cesspool, Whale Oil, has been shut down, Kiwiblog’s sister site, 8chan has crashed.

      There had been calls to terminate the forum before, which had become home to a cesspool of extremist imagery and bigoted rhetoric.

      Sound familiar?

      even the site’s founder (Fredrick Brennan) said it provided a “receptive audience for domestic terrorists” and should be shut down.

      Why so surprised Fredrick?

      “The rationale is simple: they have proven themselves to be lawless and that lawlessness has caused multiple tragic deaths,” Cloudfare chief executive Matthew Prince wrote in a blog post.

      Duh. They are white supremacists and Jordan Petersen groupies, you fucking idiot.”
