    For those deluded people who think our virtue signaling zero carbon laws will make any difference to the world, except making New Zealand poorer, the latest figures out of China show that their growth in coal and fossil fuel burning continues unabated.

    Even all their subsidised electric cars are only 10% of their SUV production

    Palestine deals to the Jews. Israel retaliates. Guess who the media will blame by inference?

        Yeah it’s pretty rough. There was more video on Aljaz this morning showing daytime attacks on Gaza. Trump’s really been responsible for this I think. Hamas and Islamic Jihad have fallen into the trap of thinking Israelis killing Palestinians is going to bother the world but they’re busy worrying about trade wars and the Saudis are in cahoots with Israel for now.

          ” Hamas and Islamic Jihad have fallen into the trap of thinking Israelis killing Palestinians is going to bother the world but they’re busy worrying about trade wars and the Saudis are in cahoots with Israel for now.”

          Here was I thinking they had fallen into the trap of heading a pointless death cult dedicated to the destruction of their neighbour at the price of total misery and abject poverty for their own citizens. Instead, it’s just they chose a bad time to try and stoke the worlds dislike for Jews because of Trump. My bad….

      There is still a lot of weird stuff alleged to have happened around cyclone Andrew. Mainly concerning a falsified death count.

    Is Trump Russia’s man in the White House?

    “Donald Trump was likely to have been compromised by Russian intelligence agents on a trip to Moscow 31 years ago, a new book claims.

    Trump had been officially invited to Russia by a senior diplomat to discuss possible property developments.

    However, during his stay, Trump would have been filmed in 1987 with Russian prostitutes sent to him as a “honey trap”, even though he travelled with then-wife Ivana, making him vulnerable to blackmail by the Kremlin, its then top spy told the book’s author.”

    “The book, a copy of which has been obtained by DailyMail.com, claims that Trump is a “Russian asset” whose greed made him “easy prey” to Soviet intelligence officers decades ago.”

    “The extraordinary claim is in House of Trump, House of Putin; the Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia, a forensic look at Trump’s long ties to Russia, which is out next week, and written by Unger.”

    “Trump’s ties to Russia deepened in the 1990s after his casinos in Atlantic City began to go bankrupt and his companies went into US$3.4 billion of debt.

    Unable to get cash from banks in the US Trump went to Russians to get what is known as “alternative financing”, Unger writes.”

    Should make good reading and stimulate a barrage of tweets.

      Alternative reality with enough “may be”s for a climate “scientist”.

        “Alternative reality” pretty much sums up Trump’s Presidency, no maybes.
