So, bring it on!
For the record, I strongly disagree with your post.
It was an outrageous expression of my outrage at the deadly stupidity ruling Australia.

There's a glitch at YouTube. Potholer's video (see above) is in fact existing. Just click.

XOM .... $60 before $90.  Could resolve within the coming 3 - 6 months (to $60 or below).

Further, oil price continues to face head winds ... and could be bad news for Donnie’s boss, Vladimir Putin.  One more reason Putin decided to change their “constitution”.

Moon of Alabama isn't a very credible source. Some rather wacky blogger it looks.

Examples from his lush oeuvre:
"The Russian Prime Minister Resigns And No One Knows Why"
"The Zika Virus Is Harmless - It Does Not Cause Birth Defects - We Told You So"
"D-Day And The Myth That The U.S. Defeated The Nazis"
"Six Killed Pediatricians Sign Letter To Obama"
"Syria: Is the U.S. Preparing a False Flag Bombing?"

Any challenge to this:

Henderson’s assumption that a helicopter could not have operated under 500m is a major assumption upon which he bases his simulation. There is no direct evidence about the height that these cylinders were dropped, yet Henderson arbitrarily decided it could not have been under 500m.

Despite Henderson including a seemingly rational methodology, it is completely inadequate for this task. In this situation, the question of how the cylinders reached their locations cannot be rid of context — attempting to do so is misleading. At no point does Henderson consider in detail what it would mean for the cylinders to have been placed manually. Indeed he does not touch on that hypothesis until the conclusion, where he decides that it is in fact the most likely scenario.

Finally, there is the elephant in the room. The fact the FFM carried out three independent engineering analyses, by three independent teams, all of which contradict Henderson’s findings.

Per the linked article, NOAA and NASA find that "… 2019 was 1.22°C (2.19°F) above the pre-industrial baseline temperature."

Title: "2019 in Review: Global Temperature Rankings"

https://medialibrary.climatecentral.org/resources/2019-in-review-global-temperature-rankings

...

Per the first linked article the WMO Secretary-General stated that GMSTA in 2019 relative to pre-industrial was only 1.1C; while the quoted NOAA-NASA article indicates that the average GMSTA above pre-industrial for the entitle 2010s decade was 1.2C and that for 2019 it was 1.22C.  It seems that the UN's WMO is erring on the side of least drama:

Title: "2019 second hottest year on record, UN confirms"

https://news.un.org/en/story/2020/01/1055392

Extract: "“The average global temperature has risen by about 1.1°C since the pre-industrial era and ocean heat content is at a record level,” said WMO Secretary-General Petteri Taalas.

WMO analysis showed the annual global temperature in 2019 was 1.1°C warmer than in the period from 1850-1900, or the pre-industrial era."

https://www.climatechangenews.com/2020/01/21/thunberg-says-eight-years-left-avert-1-5c-warming/

Extract: "Thunberg said there was only eight years left at current levels of emissions to keep temperatures below 1.5°C. Average global temperatures are about 1.1°C above pre-industrial times, according to the United Nations. And the rise is causing more extreme weather, such as heatwaves, wildfires and rising sea levels."

I have even more respect for Bernie Sanders now than before this incident.

I'm quite sure Sanders doesn't want to lose your vote. But Biden is still 100% corrupt, just like Trump, serving concentrated wealth and not the people.

So let me get this straight.
Even after Bernie says this :

“It is absolutely not my view that Joe is corrupt in any way. And I’m sorry that that op-ed appeared,”
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/21/us/politics/bernie-sanders-apologizes-joe-biden.html

you still argue that "Biden is still 100% corrupt" ?

Ontario, Canada buyer says Tesla called him about finalizing his Model Y delivery, saying Performance models would be available next month — and they told him all configurations would be available by Q3!

1) We increased our $TSLA price target to $800 today. Worth noting, though, our initial target of $530 was set in 2018, so 2 years down the line, compounded 20% p.a., $800 is the right place to be. Not much has changed in our conviction!
https://twitter.com/p_ferragu/status/1219627618900815873
- 2) Our conviction is simple: beyond 2025, Tesla could sell 2-3m premium cars a year, at industry leading margins, with structural share gains. On our math, it means $1100-1700 per share by then.
3) In the meantime, the stock will remain volatile, as the spread between the bear and the bull cases remain wide. Buckle up for another ride!

Topped off my battery again so I can drive back to LA in one shot. Now rated range is up to 312 miles on 100% battery. My car is a little over 15K miles and is 18 months old. Not seeing any battery degradation yet. Sweet!

- I supercharge 1-2 times a week between 20%-90% typically.

eg the city is burning in some way, which has happened before in conditions less worse than they are now.

That is not a good sign. I hope the cities (and everyone in them) are spared. Stay safe!
I hope not: Better a city burns down than a forest. People are easier to evacuate than koalas and kangaroos.  Plus, a healthy shock might make deniers start thinking.

Beside these 2 purely rational reasons, methinks Australia desperately deserves it. They voted for hell, after all. So, bring it on!
