Will AGW view of Australian government change, after these horrible bush fires?
Quote
There’s a political storm brewing in Australia, as well. In its epicenter is conservative Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who has been criticized not just for his initial lax handling of the crisis — he was on holiday in Hawaii as his nation burned — but, more importantly, for his broader resistance to political measures aimed at mitigating climate change. Morrison remains infamous for a stunt he pulled in 2017, when, as Australia’s treasurer, he showed up to a session of Parliament brandishing a lump of coal and a message to his colleagues not to be “scared” by fossil fuels.

Which is the best answer to Sep-2012 ASI lost (compared to 1979-2000)?
50% [NSIDC Extent] or
73% [PIOMAS Volume]

Volume is harder to measure than extent, but 3-dimensional space is real, 2D's hide ~50% thickness gone.
-> IPCC/NSIDC trends [based on extent] underestimate the real speed of ASI lost.

Continuing with this subject:

Australia ranked worst of 57 countries on climate change policy

Australia is the worst-performing country on climate change policy, according to a new international ranking of 57 countries. The report also criticises the Morrison government for being a “regressive force” internationally.

The 2020 Climate Change Performance Index, prepared by a group of thinktanks comprising the NewClimate Institute, the Climate Action Network and Germanwatch, looks at national climate action across the categories of emissions, renewable energy, energy use and policy.

Across all four categories, Australia was ranked as the sixth-worst performing of the 57 countries assessed.

An interesting discussion, solutions from the Guardian comments section I like to share:

Ah the modern dutch savage.  ;)

I remember watching a really old soccer clip and after the home side scored all the men threw their hats in the air.

Missing polsstok though...

I saw polsstoks used to jump a moat in an aged silent flick and was immediately reminded of nanning.
I'd never come across the word, or the concept, until nanning spelled it out. :)

If you ever have watched pole vaulting in the olympics you have seen the concept.
I loved the robo jausting idea proposed in the AI thread. Possibly a sport which i would watch.  :)

I applied for membership of track-and-field club "Phanos" in Amsterdam to start with pole vaulting, expecting to very good at it. Alas when they found out I was 50 years old they said I had to learn the basics first and then blocked me from entering the basics course. I have been (very) cross about that age discrimination for more than half a year. They wouldn't even let me show them what I can do. Bastards!

I likely would've been in the national team by now (I am very athletic and very good at pols leaping) and would have found a route out of unemployment.

You would fail the doping tests with the current diet though...

I loved the idea of jumping over 6 meters. Basically jump straight onto the roof of our house.

LOL  yes I would be excluded with my current 'diet'.

I can jump over a 6m wide ditch, but that's horizontal. I assume your house isn't built that way.

The technique to use is called the "boerenplons": you take a run and jump with your pols over the side of the ditch before ramming it into the middle of the ditch and swing & climb the rest. Many times you have to jump the last bit and leave your pols behind, stuck in the ditch, out of reach.
When the ditch water was still frozen, we would break the ice with the pols and then jump, but what happened often, is that the pols got stuck behind a piece of ice (NL: schots) in the middle of the ditch. Wet AND cold.
At some birthday parties we would all take to the fields with our polsen and find a suitable (small) ditch. Then 1 pols would be removed and that person had to tag someone and get his/her pols. It is possible to jump a small ditch without a pols, which can go wrong amusingly.
O what wonderful (wet) times we had. No wonder I have no allergies.

Cheers ("Tsjoch" in Frisian).

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scotland#Early_history

"In the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, with much of Scotland under the control of a single ruler and united by the Gaelic language, a modern nation-state first emerged, as did Scottish national consciousness."

And if you're interested:

"Beginning in the sixth century, the area that is now Scotland was divided into three areas: Pictland, a patchwork of small lordships in central Scotland;[36]:25–26 the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Northumbria, which had conquered southeastern Scotland;[36]:18–20 and Dál Riata, founded by settlers from Ireland, bringing Gaelic language and culture with them.[36]:20 These societies were based on the family unit and had sharp divisions in wealth, although the vast majority were poor and worked full-time in subsistence agriculture. The Picts kept slaves (mostly captured in war) through the ninth century.[36]:26–27"

A gerenal question:
I have some organic corn (the hard seeds) that I've bought for birds but they don't eat it.

So now I like to make popcorn, preferably nice sweet ones. But not too elaborate.
I have bought my first ever bottle of maple syrup (I have never even tasted it) but am completely unexperienced in making sweet popcorn with it. Oven/microwave/frying pan? Oil/butter? Timing? Of course I can find recipe's on youtube etc. but prefer to hear advise from my forumfriends in our café.
Since most people on this forum are from the U.S.A. or Canada, I thought to ask you for some ideas and instructions.

Cheers.

Hey Tom did you know this:

https://dlnr.hawaii.gov/hisc/info/invasive-species-profiles/mongoose/

Mongoose are opportunistic feeders that will eat birds, small mammals, reptiles, insects, fruits, and plants. They prey on the eggs and hatchlings of native ground nesting birds and endangered sea turtles. The small Indian mongoose has been blamed with the extinction of ground-nesting birds in Jamaica and Fiji and commonly kill birds, including 8 federally listed endangered Hawaiian birds, such as the Hawaiian crow (‘alalā), petrels (ʻuʻau) and Hawaiian goose (nēnē). It was estimated in 1999 that mongoose cause $50 million in damages to Hawai`i and Puerto Rico annually.

Bad mongoose! ;)
