The following is a brief excerpt of a longer essay in the Leftist Woke THE CONVERSATION. These Left leaning Marxists are thrilled that the lying Australian PM has received the endorsement from the Nationals for him to go to Glasgow and sign more of Australia’s economic future and sovereignty away to the globalist anti-God climate scammers.
‘Resources Minister Keith Pitt is set to be elevated to cabinet under a deal between Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Nationals Leader Barnaby Joyce that sees the Nationals sign up to the 2050 net-zero target.
Pitt, who was demoted to the outer ministry by Joyce, has been one of the toughest critics of a rush to embrace the 2050 target, and a very strong advocate of the coal industry’s future.
Under the deal, the Nationals cabinet numbers would go from four to five although their overall frontbench numbers stay the same. Asked whether he’d put up the proposal of an extra cabinet minister, Joyce said “any decision like that is a decision for the prime minister”.
Watched a little of the morning news on Sky and the little bit I saw was a big shot from the ANZ Bank talking about the state of the bank. The only thing I realy took away from what he said was the ANZ bank will cease putting money in coal by 2030. Now I say that because many if not most of these financial institutions are cultural warriors appeasing the Leftists as Leftist/Communist China continues to consume more and more coal! Now this hatred of coal is supposedly to save the planet because of CLIMATE CHANGE! Now, have you noticed that these climate change scare mongers are predicting what will occur in ten or twenty years unless something is done NOW BUT the simple weatherman cannot guarantee what the weather will be the next day! That brings me to Part One of the article WEATHER MADE (sort of) UNDERSTANDABLE. This is a long article so just in case you don’t take time to read the entire article this sentence pretty much sums it up and that is ‘AS YOU LEARN MORE ABOUT WEATHER IT WILL BE COME CLEAR TO YOU HOW PREPOSTEROUS IT IS THAT PEOPLE THINK THEY CAN PREDICT AND CONTROL WEATHER A CENTURY FROM NOW.’
‘We shall start at the beginning with possibly a shocking exclamation. Weather is nothing more and nothing less than nature trying to equilibrate the balance of all energy transmitted to the Earth by the sun. It is a never ending multilevel show of physics trying to overcome imbalances and irregularities too numerous to accurately quantify and yet we try hour after hour day after day all across the Earth.
Climate is simply the trends of weather over a long period. We never stop talking about it. It’s too hot. It’s too cold. I’m tired of the rain. I wish this spring would last forever. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of snow at the top of the mountain. This is the weather. We talk about it, we complain about it, we wish about it, but nobody can do anything about it.
With the help of technology in recent decades, like satellites, Doppler radar, telemetry, etc., we are getting pretty good at predicting how the weather is most likely to change over the next SEVERAL days. In Florida and Hawaii, it’s so easy, we don’t even need weather persons. At other locations, say, near tall mountains or along the coastlines, predicting the weather is harder, and forecasts are less reliable.
Wind is simply the movement of air. Its action is caused by temperature differences and atmospheric pressure differences from one place to another. Some differences are the result of the sun heating the earth in one area and not another. It also happens where a portion of the land that’s heated is a mountain, and another part is a valley. Along the coast, the earth is warmed faster than the ocean or if half of the sky is cloudy and half is not. Warm air is lighter than cold air, so it climbs into the sky, and then colder air rushes in to fill the void created by the warm air rising. Nature doesn’t like imbalances of any kind.
Near a warm and sunny beach in the early afternoon, we will get a gentle, cooling summer breeze coming in from the ocean to replace the rising warm air which heated up faster than the water. As shown in Fig 1 at night, the process generally reverses, because the water is now warmer than the land.
At other locations and circumstances, it can be a wild ride, like a jet stream. These are fast-moving rivers of air at the boundaries of massive weather fronts. Here one is hot and the other cold. They flow west to east in the opposite direction in response to the sun’s warming rotation from east to west. At the jet stream core, which is about ten to fifteen kilometers high, the airspeeds can reach several hundreds of miles per hour and move in serpentine paths over continents. These fast-moving core winds drag the adjacent air, forming a velocity gradient that’s very -very fast near the center and keeps slowing down and down until it reaches near-zero speeds some hundreds of Kilometers away. Naturally, if mountains or tall buildings get in the way, the wind changes directions and speed in many turbulent and unpredictable ways.
This is the weight of the volume of air on top of you. At sunrise, if you are at the beach at sea level, and the temperature is 15° C, (69 F) there’s a column of air on top of you going all the way up into outer space. The weight of that air pressing down on you has a force of about 14.7 PSI (pounds per square inch) on your body. If you then go to the rooftop restaurant for brunch at 250 feet high, the pressure on you decreases from 14.7 to 14.3 PSI. Meanwhile, if you have a friend, who is mountain climbing at 2,400 feet, the pressure on him is only about 10.9 PSI. Now the heaviest air, meaning the densest air, is at sea level, and as we go up, it progressively gets less and less dense until near outer space, it’s about zero PSI. Figure 2 illustrators the impact of changing atmospheric pressure on a sealed bottle of water moving from 14,000 feet elevation down to 1000 feet.
BAROMETRIC PRESSURE AND TEMPERATURE RELATIONSHIP
Back at the beach the sun has been warming it up for about five hours. It’s the hottest time of the day when the sun is directly overhead, about noon. Now you might say, “But wait. Why does it usually feel warmer an hour or two into the afternoon, when the sun is no longer at its highest position (called the apex). That’s because an hour or two after the apex, while you’re getting a little less energy from the sun on your head, the earth you are standing on has already been heated by the sun and some of that stored heat in the ground starts radiating and convecting up to you. You are now heated on the top by the sun and from the bottom by the warm ground.
If you are a football fan you will remember Deflate-Gate where Tom Brady was accused of deflating footballs to his liking.Maybe he didn’t. It was noon at Indianapolis’ Lucus Oil Stadium, and the footballs are brought to the field for practice and then for play. The balls came out of a toasty locker room at 75° (Fahrenheit ), and the footballs and the air inside the footballs are also at 75° F, and the PSI is 13.0. Where the NFL likes them. But on the playing field, it’s a chilly 25° F. The footballs and the air inside starts to immediately cool down until the balls, and the air inside, reach 25° F. The question is – what’s happened to the balls? The simple answer is that the pressure in the balls decreased to 11 PSI the way Brady likes them.

BAROMETRIC PRESSURE AND SPECIFIC VOLUME
Let’s now put together these three measures, pressure, temperature, and volume and see how they generate wind. If we decrease the air temperature, the air density will increase, and the volume will decrease. Alternatively, if we reduce the pressure, the air volume will increase, and temperature will rise. So, we will need to specify two of these variables to see what it does to the third. But, you may ask, if hot air rises, why is it colder at the top of the mountain than at the base? The answer is that on top of the mountain, the air is less dense because of the lower barometric pressure. Another example of this relationship is that at sea level, water boils/turns to steam at 100° C. But if you are at the top of Mount Kilimanjaro at 20,000 feet, it will start boiling at 81° C. Or if you’re below sea level, like in parts of Death Valley California, the boiling point is about 103° C.
THE WEATHER VEHICLE
We have laid out our crazy cartoon model weather machine, in Fig 3. The sun is the engine, and it provides nearly 100 percent of the power to drive it, which we’ll call “temperature.” The transmission, is the way, the heat from the sun is distributed geographically in one part of the world and not in the other. It’s like a transmission that sends different speeds to each wheel, resulting in erratic motion. We’ll call this “specific volume.”
We then have barometric pressure, which regulates how much air enters the engine. Does it all seem if not crazy, awfully complex. That is because it is.
How does the earth receive the sun’s energy. Let’s turn on the engine and see what happens. We have sunlight arriving on the planet and spreading out like a three-dimensional bell curve as shown in Fig 4. The top-center of the bell is precisely on the equator, and it’s at the highest point on the bell. That means that the energy density there is the maximum. At the bottom of the bell are the north and south polar regions. The amount of energy received from the sun is almost the same, but it’s now spread over a vastly larger area.
On earth, where we have land, oceans, and air, they are all set in motion to eliminate these temperature and pressure imbalances. It does so in the atmosphere primarily by the wind. In the seas by water movements like the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic and in the Pacific with the “Pacific Oscillator” and “El Niño Nino/La Niña. On land, it does it primarily by radiation, convection mostly to the air. On the earth, some of this heat is also conducted deeper in the ground, which is essential for plants to grow. It warms up and dries out the soil in the spring, allowing plant roots to grow. Some of the heat in the warmed earth is radiated and convected back up into the air, creating vertical wind streams that help gliders fly around without engines, and birds without flapping their wings.
But along the way, the winds have to overcome many obstacles posed by obstructions like mountain ranges and narrow canyons, plus human-made buildings and cars, trucks, planes, and wind turbines. In rare cases, it can also be caused independently of the effects of the sun. For example, the low temperatures mass of the Antarctic ice will always be much colder than the sea and air temperatures of the southern temperate regions. Thus, like the jet stream in the north, it forms a planetary sub-weather system, which we call a “polar vortex.”
The supposedly conservative Coalition Federal government of Australia is selling its citizens into financial poverty through its belief that it can change the climate! Billions of tax dollars thrown down the renewable hole while electricity prices go through the roof and the grid ruined. It wasn’t that long ago that the present PM took a lump of coal into Parliament to prove some point but has not since pushed for the building of even one new coal power station. Rather than waking up to the climate scam lie the make believe conservatives take the nation with them to ruin by taking a ‘…strong domestic and international action to reduce emissions and build resilience to the impacts of climate change. Our Foreign Policy White Paper recognises the challenges that climate change will increasingly present in the coming years, and the economic opportunities in the transition to a low emissions global economy. Given the growing challenges to sustainable development presented by climate change, the White Paper also highlighted that responding to climate change will continue to be a priority for Australia’s development assistance.
Australia’s targets will be met through a comprehensive policy suite to reduce emissions, encourage technological innovation and expand our clean energy sector. Australia will complete a Long Term Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Strategy in 2020. More information about Australia’s domestic mitigation efforts can be found at the Department of the Environment and Energy. Information about Australia’s adaptation efforts can be found at the website of the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment.
As well as taking action at home, Australia is supporting other countries to reduce their emissions, build resilience and adapt to the impacts of climate change. The Government will achieve its 2015 commitment of providing at least $1 billion in climate development assistance for developing countries from 2015–2020 from the Australian aid program, including$300 million over four years for climate change and disaster resilience in the Pacific. In August 2019, Prime Minister Morrison announced a further $500 million over five years from 2020 to help Pacific nations invest in renewable energy and climate and disaster resilience. Australia’s support for climate action through our development program over 2020-25 will be guided by our Climate Change Action Strategy, released in November 2019.
Australia is leading global partnerships to protect rainforests such as the Asia-Pacific Rainforest Partnership and marine ecosystems, including the International Coral Reef Initiative and the International Partnership for Blue Carbon. We are also building capacity in measurement, reporting and verification of greenhouse gas mitigation, and support for the development of blue carbon inventories.
The Uniting Church in Australia (UCA) is one of the most liberal of the Protestant denominations. It seems the UCA will promote almost anything that is politically leftist rather than preaching the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. For instance the UCA called for its members to strike in September, 2019 for the Climate scam that is being pushed upon the world.
The UCA also had three goals to achieve in this protest.
First, there is no way (at least at this time or by 2030) any nation can exist on 100% renewable energy. When the sun shines solar panels work and when the wind blows wind turbines work. But what about the night time or cloudy days when the sun doesn’t shine or those many days when the wind doesn’t blow?
Secondly, coal, oil and gas have served mankind well in bringing nations from the industrial revolution to this place in history where we are now. There is an abundance of food and enough energy to travel, heat and cool our homes and businesses and hundreds if not thousands of other ways in which coal, gas and oil have benefited society.
The UCA is promoting the Climate Change scam because it either doesn’t believe or doesn’t understand the Bible.
In Genesis 1:28 -31 God told Adam and Eve to ‘Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish (in 1611 this meant to fill) the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.’
After the flood God told Noah and his sons to ‘Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish (in 1611 this word meant fill) the earth.’ The earth was for man to use for his own benefit before and after the flood. There were many results from the worldwide flood and one result was coal! Yes, man should use what God provided before and after the flood in a responsible way but it is there to be used! Man has learned to use coal and the other resources in such a way that is very beneficial for the earth and mankind.
However, why did God leave those that know Him on this earth after the Lord Jesus ascended into heaven? It certainly wasn’t to protest supposed Climate Change! Matthew 28: 18-20 gives what has become known as the Great Commission for God’s people. Here we read ‘And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.’
In Acts 1:8 we are told that the Lord said to His disciples before ascending into heaven that ‘…ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.’
Paul told Timothy in his second letter to ‘Preachthe word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.’ The Lord’s churches are to be PREACHING the Word rather than protesting for a climate scam. Those in the UCA ought to consider whether they are one of the Lord’s churches or not.
In Genesis not only do we read that God created but man rebelled. Man is NOW a sinner in need of a Saviour. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, God in the flesh, is that Saviour. Paul explains that ‘God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us’ Romans 5:8. This is what God did for us through His Son.
This is what man MUST do. Again quoting the Apostle Paul in Romans 10:9 ‘That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.’ Thou is singular and salvation is personal. Each individual MUST by faith believe on Christ for his or her self.
The SINGLE GREATEST THREAT‘ to people is NOT the scam of climate change BUT to neglect the salvation offered by God through His Son, Jesus Christ. As Peter preached in Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Christian preachers and the Lord’s churches ought to be preaching the Gospel rather than protesting supposed climate change for ‘…faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God’ Romans 10:17.
Acts 16:31 ‘…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.’
Oh, by the way, a real climate change is coming but it will be after the Lord comes in the air for His people. Revelation 16:8-11 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
