I was wondering what the tuition fees are at Facebook University?

And, on edit, can you get your money back?

Thanks Cloudee, I've been looking for that cartoon. I used to work with a few facebook and youtube professors.

It gets better…

From Australia’s so-called peak scientific body… “The Australian Academy of Science provides independent, authoritative and influential scientific advice..”

“…Gender-transformative approaches to just adaptation celebrate and engage women and non-binary Peoples in all their diversities as climate knowledge holders, leaders, decision makers, and actors in achieving just climate solutions…

…many of our policy and institutional settings, developed in the past, don’t lend themselves to immediate use, or even to revision or renewal. Policy processes, decision making protocols and institutional settings are the ‘means to the ends’ of climate change adaptation they determine who makes decisions, what information is called on, what groups get to have a say…”

Any-one still think Oz science is credible…

Yes, very much so. The policy paper you linked is academia at its least useful. Unless of course you take climate change as a uniquely personal burden, then perhaps this circle jerk has merit?

Climate change adaptation in Australia pretty much boils down to everyone getting a fireproof air conditioned zodiac.

She’s been called back so he can tell her that he found an expert on climate change posting on PPRuNe.

AGW (Anthropogenic Global Warming) is not only a scam, but a substitute for religion.

Greta, the child saint
Carbon Credits= tithing or 'indulgences'
Those who question the 'settled science' (science is never 'settled') are 'deniers'
Dietary requirements: meat eating changes the planet's weather, ve must eat ze bugs
The apocalyptic result if we don't 'believe' after decades of (dud) predictions of doom
Erection of 'idols', i.e. windmills and magic squares, that will supposedly change the planet's weather

And like religion, a lot of institutions make money out of it.

Parents owned the top version, never knew they were fireproof, alas, no air conditioning, unless you call opening the quarter window to blow air on the face.

Yes, its a shame that many ordinary Australians need to search the internet to check the claims of our so-called university scientist climate experts..


When you reads the idiocy that ‘informs’ Qantas management, well, time to do yer own research:

“…more intense cyclones throughout northern Australia, and increased and more devastating storms and flooding further heighten risk (Lawrence et al. 2022). While all Australians face the risk of harm, the risk is higher for groups who experience structural disadvantages and marginalisation due to oppressive systems such as colonialism, racism, sexism, classism, ageism, ableism, and homophobia…”

https://www.futureearth.org.au/sites...adaptation.pdf


And if yer looks at page 8, there’s that ‘Landcruiser Dreaming’. ….except there will be no more ecologically destructive Landcruisers allowed under the global warming overlords…

They do get paid to write it and that is the problem. Climate hysteria is a business now. The bigger the catastrophe the more grant money you get. I'm not denying climate change as it's definitely happening. But is it a crisis? The UN doesn't seem to think so. Climate change is currently ranked number 13 out of 17 sustainable development goals by the UN. Not even in the top 10.

Read, yes. Comprehend the sheer idiocy of it, No.

Also had a go at interpreting the ‘visuals’ and representations that were the way of the word in Oz for 50,000 odd years…

I can't wait for the dinosaurs of old to die off. If that lady who could smell dementia had a sniff of this thread she'd have a lot of paperwork to fill out.

"Climate change" is a very profitable and rewarding business and now gainfully employs many thousands of excessively overpaid, exuberant disciples in Australia, for example the ABC, James Cook University, the Australian Labor Party, Greenpeace Australia et al.

It certainly reduced our Australian unemployment rate.

The UN goals are set that way as their primary issue is to help progress the billions who live in 3rd world conditions. There's no point focusing on climate action when your population is starving, uneducated etc. If you look at the list most of those goals will inherently combat climate change as they are promoting clean energy, lower consumption, smarter cities, etc etc.... For instance the rise of the Indian and Chinese middle class will blow away any gains the rest of the world makes if they are not educated on sustainable living as they progress. If everyone in China and India suddenly have the consumption, travel patterns, eating habits at rates of the average Australian the world is doomed. If climate change don't scare you, then the inflationary effects of this should.

Hmmm… So, who gets to ‘decide’ who can do what, who can live where, and, who gets to fly on them big jets?…
