Until recently Greenpeace did have Moore as one of their founders on their website. They changed that after he became a bit to inconvenient in questioning some of CC claims. He's currently being 'erased' from the whole debate, along with a lot of other people who are deemed a bit too inconvenient. It is a huge pile of people, many being Climate scientists and similar.

 

Good to see the Aussie dude, Doc Reid, Ridd, something like that, just won the battle against James Cook Uni after it tried to do the same thing to him when he also had the audacity to question some of the CC claims. He called one staudy out, whicj is being bandied around as 'fact', as being bullshit then the cheeky prick backed that up with real science. They sacked him for doing his job. The Judge said James Cook Uni has a specific policy guaranteeing academic freedom to its employees. They shot that to bits 28 times.

 

Some of the judges comments -

 

At its core, intellectual freedom mandates that academics should express their opinions openly and honestly, while inviting scrutiny and debate about those ideas. Unless opinions are expressed in this way, the growth and expression of ideas will be stifled and new realms of thinking will cease to be explored. That will lead to intellectual and social stagnation and a uniformity of thought which is an anathema to the concept of higher learning and social progress.

 

During the last 160 years, arguably the two most prominent scientists/academics to challenge the status quo have been Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein. The ideas brought forth by both of these men were extremely controversial and offended several of their academic peers as well as many others in the greater society. That is how it should be and without intellectual freedom, the world would have been denied the benefit of ground-breaking thought and intellectual risk taking of the sort that encourages innovation and other scholastic enquiries.

 

As the Judge correctly notes, where would we be now if Darwin and Einstein, to name only 2 of many, had been erased as is happening to their counterparts today?

 

Also interesting watching the shite fight about the proposed Climate Commission Investigation or similar name. A LOT of money is being poured into mobs like Greenpeace in an effort to stop that happening. Money from organisations like the 'Oil and Gas Climate Initiative'. Over 1 billion bucks has gone into the pockets of 'Big Green' according to some reports.

 

But you'll never know that as you are not deemed smart enough to make a decision based on all available inputs. So politicians and far more frightening is many private individuals (almost all being 0.1%ers) now decide what they will tell you and when.

They aren't statements I need to support, they are simply comments. If you'd like to know more it's all out there but you may need to hunt around a bit due to the growing amount of censorship and suppression that is happening with some topics.

 

It's all very recent stuff. You'll find many instances of similar actions.

 

I'll see if can find the one with the Judges comments, that was in a scientific journal. It maybe in the web history.

Here's a fun fact. Physics is not affected by human opinion.

Neither is biology - and yet our study of both sciences most certainly is.

I've not been following any of this stuff and generally have no interest in it, but I really don't understand what is going on here. It doesn't look logical or considered. It does smack of grandstanding and PR spin. Is it an election year? Has democracy been taking over by extremist protesters?

 

Environment Canterbury declares a region-wide 'climate emergency'

Canterbury is now in a state of "climate emergency".

Environment Canterbury (ECan) councillors have just voted to declare the emergency in front of a packed council chamber.

It is still unclear what the emergency will actually mean for Cantabrians.

Extinction Rebellion (XR) Ōtautahi had dared councillors to show the same courage displayed in 2017 when ECan became the country's first and only regional council to ask the government to stop deep-sea oil drilling off the coast.

XR Ōtautahi's climate-emergency target is to achieve a zero carbon economy by 2025.

Nelson City councillors are expected to debate a similar declaration at their meeting on Thursday afternoon.

A Christchurch City Council committee is also scheduled to discuss the issue on Monday.

More background here:

Note that the Chairman of Ecan is a member of 'XR'....

 

https://www.stuff.co...biggest-moments

 

Just before Christmas, XR staged a protest at ECan's offices, turning off the water supply. Of the 40 original protesters, including Sophie the dog, five were arrested for what police called "obstruction-type offences".

 

The agenda for Thursday's meeting recommends councillors declare a climate emergency but notes ECan "already demonstrates leadership in the face of climate change" and also that climate change "does not satisfy the definition of an 'emergency' under the Civil Defence and Emergency Management Act 2002".

So what are individuals here on crew doing personally to reduce their impact on climate change?
