I confess – I really, really, really like my chocolate! And I have sampled quite a bit in my time. Of course I have tried Nestle, Mars, Cadbury, Lindt, Haigh’s and more in the past. These days I tend to stick to just a couple of brands, with Lindt and Haighs being my personal favourites.
But let’s take a look at Cadbury vs Lindt. In the taste test stakes Lindt wins hands down for me, but that all boils down to personal preference. So let’s have a look at the companies and their practices.
Cadbury’s is owned by American giant Mondelez International.  They had to shut down their factory recently for five weeks due to an oversupply of stock. The ABC reported last year, “The Hobart Cadbury factory will close its doors for five weeks at the end of this year." 
Monodelez International said, ,"The Claremont factory would shut 
down over the Christmas period due to lagging sales and a bigger-than-expected stockpile.”
In the UK Cadbury's had to sack 200 of their employees as redundant.
Add to this the fact it is facing boycotts in Australia from consumers against halal certification, and that it has also faced boycotts from Malaysian consumers because of suspected pork contamination. 
That turned out to be a storm in a teacup but, too late, the damage was done.
They have recently announced they will be reducing the size of their family block by one row but the price will remain the same. The signal is they are struggling and desperate for Government support that was promised 18 months ago.
When consumers ring Cadbury's to inquire about halal certification they are often met with abrupt and unfriendly receptionists fed up with dealing with the large volume of dissatisfied customers. 
The generic email response to queries about halal certification says they will not tolerate racism, bigotry or discrimination. And yet, by paying for halal certification that is exactly what they are promoting! 
I have had leaders of the Sikh community call me to encourage me because they are forbidden to eat halal certified foods. They feel very discriminated against as so many products are literally off limits due to their religious beliefs. 
I have had Buddhists say the same thing. 
Many Christians believe their scriptures also forbid eating food dedicated to false gods. Some Jews agree too.
Cadbury’s decision to maintain and defend halal certification despite the large number of complaints they receive is bewildering. It obviously doesn't increase sales as their company is certainly suffering. 
Perhaps they should cease paying these fees for a year and see what happens?
In stark contrast Lindt has announced that their market share continued to increase in 2014. Their website claims they had significant sales growth in all markets, with substantial market share gains. 
They don’t pay halal certification fees and their business is booming!
Lindt chooses to make their product available to all people of all faiths and backgrounds. They do not discriminate or limit their customer base by giving in to needless religious demands placed on them. 
They successfully share their delicious product in many countries around the world. You can read the label and contact the company to determine if the product is suitable for you. No unnecessary or irrelevant religious practices catered for or funded by the consumer. 
No Islamic religious requirement imposed upon the consumer. No funding of mosques, Islamic schools or “charities” with your chocolate purchases.
There are many Australian and international companies successfully growing and thriving without halal certification. Greens, Three Threes, Inglewood Chicken, Madura Tea, Haigh’s Chocolate and so many more. 
Quite a few companies have also dropped halal certification in recent times out of respect for the consumer and market sentiment. 
The ones I have spoken to have told me that nothing has changed and that Muslims are still buying their products. The products are still suitable or permissible for Muslims, but as a result of not paying the certification fees they now can reach a broader market. 
They are no longer limited by religious beliefs or practices. The food remains the same, it's just available to more consumers. Everyone wins.
If Muslims insist on halal slaughtered meat that is fine, but they can raise the money themselves to pay for specialised halal slaughterers. User pays! 
And it doesn’t need to be disproportionate to the demand. Around 2.2% of Australia is Muslim, it should be no more than that percentage in relation to halal certified products.
The Way I See really is time for companies catering for the Australian domestic market to take notice of their consumers and act accordingly. Having an Islamic religious practice imposed on us and asking us to fund it is indeed discriminatory and unnecessary! 
There are over 70 of Cadbury's products that have been certified halal. Just Crazy !!

Despite assuring his followers that he will, Donald Trump announced that he will not pursue Hillary Clinton’s Foundation and her illegal email server. But he had to say that didn’t he, and for good reason, because Obama still has plenty of time to pardon her... absolve her of all blame. If he chooses to do that, the case is permanently closed. So is Trump luring Obama into a false sense of security where Obama himself would avoid being part of any criminal proceedings?
Obama knew of the email server, he corresponded on it himself, and he certainly would have known the reason for its use.
                   Romney eviscerated Trump in a savage attempt to rally the GOP against him
As Trump keeps the White House, the media and the Democrats preoccupied with the apparently astonishing rapprochement between Mitt Romney and himself, the wheels of justice keep silently turning as the FBI continues its year-long investigation into the Clinton Foundation, but not the server. The server was merely a conduit to allow the fraudulent funds to be arranged and received without any “outsiders” knowing.
The Foundation is where the most meat is on the bone.
Trump’s private dinner with Romney last night has shortened odds for his appointment as Secretary of State. The truth is that Hillary Clinton has a better chance of being reappointed as Secretary of State than Romney has of replacing her.
It’s clearly a Trump ruse and Rudy Giuliani is almost certain to be handed the role he really wants, and certainly deserves.
Despite media claiming it’s done and dusted for Romney, it’s a position that Trump would never allow him to have... he is simply giving him an embarrassing and humiliating work-over as payback. 
Romney will be left like an unwanted shag on a rock with not a dime of the spoils to bless himself with.
Recriminations aside, the Secretary of State needs to be of one geo-political mind with that of the President and Mitt Romney is a long way from that with Trump.
The Way I See It.........the truth is that Trump did not need to pursue Clinton anyway... the FBI's Comey will continue to do that for him and a decontaminated Department of Justice, devoid of a corrupt Attorney General in Loretta Lynch, will see that a Grand Jury is impaneled... and that will necessarily embroil Obama who is now in a very tight corner.
If Obama doesn’t buy Trump’s assurance that he has no interest in “locking her up” he may pardon Clinton to save his own skin but that would be a bad look and yet another fresh skid mark on his already flawed legacy.
If he DOES fall for Trump’s meaningless assurance then Trump’s word will still be kept... he won’t have to lift a finger toward Clinton's indictment, it will all be done for him, and at arm’s length.
There’s a game of chess going on in Trump Tower... and it’s close to check mate.

SUBTITLE:  Frustrated Aboriginal Women Spill the Cultural Beans !

Which race is the more ancient and primitive? Islamic or the Australian Aboriginal? If you said Islamic you had better buy a history book because the answer is the Aboriginal race by around 50,000 years. So why do we still expect a sophisticated response when trillions of dollars is thrown at an Aboriginal race to try to drag it into the 21st century?
Alice Springs councillor Jacinta Price (below) has finally put aside PC bullshit to uncover a culture of Aboriginal child cruelty, partner bashing, and female subjugation to demand a national task force to combat the epidemic of family violence in Aboriginal communities.
“In remote communities, traditional culture is shrouded in secrecy which allows perpetrators to control their victims,” Ms Price said. “While my own family could suffer a violent backlash to my speaking out, it is a national shame Aboriginal male perpetrators are able to use traditional culture to excuse their crimes.”
It is not only the males, as Ms Price says. Females can be equally violent and cruel but that's the feminist angle seeping out.
She continued, “One is expected to pretend that these perpetrators are decent human beings and ignore the fact that they have committed acts of physical and sexual violence against those you love, because to speak out is to create conflict,” she said. “It is apparently far more important not to offend than it is to speak honestly about Australian citizens being killed in this country.”
Aboriginal culture is steeped in ancient barbaric practices, as is Islamic culture, yet neither can be lawfully discussed under our wonderful Discrimination Act. Now that Aborigines themselves have pried open a can of witchetty grubs to display the atrocious acts their family members perform on each other with impunity, poor Gillian Triggs, our Australian Human Rights Commissioner, must be having a seizure.
No white person of European heritage can say these things without copping a ‘please explain’ letter from the HRC, but now, when an Aborigine explains it, we might finally begin to understand the depth of Aborigines’ difficulties trying to survive within a white legal system... and who gives a stuff if Triggs gets her ovaries in a knot.
I have said for years in PP that Aborigines cannot be allowed alcohol or any other drug and they must never be locked up. For 60,000 years they have never experienced four walls and a bolt on a door that prevents escape.
They understand punishment, yes, but not the white man’s enclosed punishment where they are often found hanged or asphyxiated by their own hands. Pointing the bone will result in death, but that’s a cultural death in the open and under the sun, or it can be banishment that will also end in death. A culture borne over 60,000 years cannot be bridged in a brief 200 years.
The horrible truth is that the Aboriginal culture will never survive the 21st century and will slowly die through inbreeding. So what’s the answer in the interim? Well, it’s certainly not throwing more billions of dollars at it! And it’s certainly not shifting them into our inner suburbs. Don’t even suggest taking their kids from them or we’ll still be saying sorry in 2080.
Why are urban Aborigines attracted to Islam? Is it because there are cultural similarities? I mean both cultures see their female children as sexual beings at the age of nine, both use the outrageous disfigurement of children as a gateway to adulthood.
Both cultures sexually demean women as mere objects for self satisfaction. Both are violently tribal, and like Bedouins, they are nomadic without a permanent base where crops could be grown and plentiful water reticulated.
The old Aboriginal men of the tribe “educate” the young girls while the old women sexually educate the young boys. Why would they change this practice simply because some white dudes turned up in a boat and forbade it?
The Aboriginal women who spoke of the crisis at the Press Conference yesterday have drawn a line in the red sand. They described reality. But unfortunately it's a circular line  because the Aboriginal race is arguably the most primitive on the planet. No bows and arrows, no wheel, no numbers (except the number “one” and “lots”) no intertribal currency, no common language and no answers. It is simply a case of use up what’s here and shoot through to where there’s more.
The Way I See it.....of course we would die in a week in their environment as surely as they are dying in ours. 
The answer is there is no answer except that Aborigines will eventually disappear through inbreeding with Europeans. Eventually they will be so few in number so as not to be a political force. 
The opposite is the case with Islam.
Larry Pickering says; ''The answer to Islamic culture is WTF did you allow them to settle here in the first place for?''

The Leftists Cry For a Foul Dictator while Miami Cubans Celebrate His Death !

IF only Donald Trump was a dictator who killed and jailed his opponents and enslaved his people.
Maybe then the ABC would give Trump the respect it’s now showered on the belatedly dead Fidel Castro.
To the ABC, Trump is a racist, sexist, neo-fascist demagogue whose election as president of the United States, said ABC boss Michelle Guthrie, was “a bruising experience for women everywhere”. A “nightmare”, agreed ABC host Barrie Cassidy.
In contrast its vitriol changed to the sickening sweetness of the ABC’s coverage of Castro’s death.
More tears for Castro from Left-wing politicians, and a perfect description of exactly this kinds of idiot.

Greens Senator and rabid unashamed Communist, Lee Rhiannon, Twittered, yesterday:

Fidel Castro liberated Cuba from corruption, exploitation. From opposing apartheid to bringing healthcare to Third World, he inspired so many.

Among them, Canadian wuse Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, November 26:
A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr Castro made significant ­improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation. While a controversial figure, both Mr Castro’s supporters and detractors recognised his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for “el Comandante”...

The Perfect Latin American Idiot, Mendoza et al, 2000:
“ ... (the idiot) will still gyrate in excitement like a dog seeing a bone if during a visit to Cuba he finds before him the hand and the bearded, exuberant and monumental presence of the “Maximum Leader”. And, naturally, being a perfect idiot, he will find plausible explanations for the worst disasters created by Castro. If there is hunger on the island, the cruel US embargo is to blame; if there are exiles, it’s because they are incapable of understanding the revolutionary process; if there are prostitutes, it isn’t due to the poverty on the island but rather because ­Cubans now have the freedom to use their bodies as they wish.”

Donald Trump gives Fidel Castro the send-off he deserves. Will the ABC now dry its tears for a dictator - and will Malcolm Turnbull follow Trump's lead?
Trump tells it just as it is:
''Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades. Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.

While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve.

Though the tragedies, deaths and pain caused by Fidel Castro cannot be erased, our administration will do all it can to ensure the Cuban people can finally begin their journey toward prosperity and liberty.

I join the many Cuban Americans who supported me so greatly in the presidential campaign, including the Brigade 2506 Veterans Association that endorsed me, with the hope of one day soon seeing a free Cuba.''
Tony Abbott also tells it like it is:
''In a column back in 2014, I noted that living standards in Cuba and Hong Kong were identical in the 1950s.

But the two nations then conducted an experiment. Hong Kong chose laissez-faire capitalism while Cuba chose communism.

The result, as you can see in the graph ( is that Hong Kong has enjoyed decades of strong growth while Cuba has stagnated.''

I’m not alone in noticing the onerous economic cost of Cuban oppression. This academic article has a devastating summary.

We examine Cuban GDP over time and across space. We find that Cuba was once a prosperous middle-income economy. On the eve of the revolution, incomes were 50 to 60 percent of European levels. They were among the highest in Latin America at about 30 percent of the United States. In relative terms, Cuba was richer earlier on. 

Income per capita during the 1920s was in striking distance of Western Europe and the Southern United States. After the revolution, Cuba slipped down the world income distribution. Current levels of income per capita appear below their pre-revolutionary peaks."

There was even Praise for a dictator from Britain's contemptible Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn: (right)
''Fidel Castro's death marks the passing of a huge figure of modern history, national independence and 20th Century Socialism. Castro's achievements were many''
The Way I See's amazing how preachers on "social justice" can excuse enslaving a whole people and murdering thousands. Provided it's all done by one of their own.

Bill Shorten is a Deadman Walking and in DEEP Shit !

There’s a look of death in Astralian Opposition Leader Bill Shorten’s eyes. His unconvincing anti-Abbott bravado, his confected grin and his repetitive, hollow claims that he tirelessly struggles to improve the conditions of the working man have become distant and meaningless echoes of past Labor Prime Minister, Julia Gillard. 
Bill Shorten is finished, he knows it, and even his formerly sympathetic pro-Labor Fairfax Press knows it. Australia's national broadcaster, the ABC, is still in denial phase but even it too must soon accept the inevitable.
Bill Shorten is the last of the Mohicans, he carries the stench of Labor’s decomposing union carcasses and, as surely as the Longshoremen’s links to the Chicago Mafia mob were broken, so too must Labor’s connection to the union mob here. 
Labor leaders tried to break the connection, but the Rudd experiment failed miserably and they returned to recruiting possible Prime Ministers from the ranks of crooks in the union movement... the ones who relentlessly pillage their workers’ wages to build power bases from which to launch themselves into the Parliament.
Oh, Labor knows it needs to break the criminal union link, it says so, but it knows no other way. It’s a well-worn path from Marxist uni politics to criminal unionism with stints in either of the two major Labor law firms before seeking pre-selection in safe Labor seats.
The spotlight is exposing the flimsy rule of loyal union brotherhood as comrades cannibalise their fellow comrades before disappearing in a vortex of fecal matter.
Union members have been ruthlessly shafted over decades, millions were stolen from workers with cover-ups arranged by Shorten from the Gillard/Wilson scam to ALP President Michael Williamson’s theft of $20 million from the HSU
A plea bargain of guilty to a mere theft of $1 million meant we will never know where Williamson has secreted the remaining $19 million or exactly how it was obtained (there is some evidence much of the money was transferred to his wife).
Shorten’s filthy deals with employers strengthened his position and bolstered his factional numbers to be used at National Conferences and in future Caucus battles. Those same numbers were used to callously knife two Labor Prime Ministers, paving the way for his own elevation. 
But those deals were always attained at a huge cost to the workers he claimed to support. One employer claimed his company was in a $2 million better position against his competitors due to a deal signed off by Bill Shorten. Hmmm.
So, can Shorten make it to the next election? No, and here’s why: His Caucus numbers may have secured his leadership but the rank-and-file voted against him and for Anthony Albanese.
Shorten eyes his Brutus.....Albanese
... the rank-and-file know Shorten too well. 
Kevin Rudd, as a last hurrah, shored up an ALP Opposition leader’s position by changing ALP rules to require a 60% Caucus majority vote to oust him, or her. 
In a fit of pique, Rudd also raised to 75% the majority required to oust a sitting Labor Prime Minister (reference Rudd) and that’s what will bring Shorten down. 
He will now slowly drag Labor’s polling figures toward panic levels and if it takes a difficult 60% Caucus majority to get rid of him now, a 75% majority will be nigh impossible in the unlikely event he became Prime Minister.
The Way I See It......the ALP is wallowing in an agonising state of flux; do they dump Shorten now or keep him there and hope like hell he doesn’t win the next election? Anthony Albanese is sitting pretty and it appears he only needs to stay out of Thai massage parlours.  
Rudd has unwittingly created an incentive for Caucus to rid themselves of Shorten now, rather than risk taking him to the people.
The phones are already running warm. 

CLOWNFISH Are Breeding Again On The REEF !!

As the corrupt IPCC sees their global warming hoax begin to collapse it has beefed up its expensive propaganda to new fraudulent heights attacking our Great Barrier Reef as “under threat” from “Climate Change” and re-scripting all of Sir David Attenborough’s wild-life docos to include a warming dimension. He would have received millions to have his name made a sickly warming joke like that.

How much international media attention will it take to get direct action to protect the Great Barrier Reef?” 

........screamed the Left's sexually confused Ellen Degeneres. Ellen has sufficient
researchers to easily establish that the Earth is not warming, that our reefs are not dying, that our seas are not rising, that ice caps are not shrinking, that New York is not yet under water and that the Himalayas have not melted ....all predictions of the corrupt IPCC and our own unqualified national buffoon, Tim Flannery.
The "settled" science of the IPCC is claimed solely by the charlatan "scientists" who are all individually employed by the IPCC itself and who indirectly get their wage packet from you and me. So why would anyone believe their "settled" science, especially when 30,000 fair dinkum scientists say it is all bullshit!

Natural, seasonal coral bleaching is how we get our white sandy beaches that surround our beautiful reefs.
Dead coral gets pulverised during constant cyclones to replenish those beaches while new coral replenishes the reef. Why don't simpleton uni Lefties understand how the world has operated for four billion years before they were born?
Coral bleaching is to our reefs what bushfires are to our bush!
Every living species on Earth must suffer regular migrations or in situ ordeals that allow for survival of the fittest to continually enhance the strain. That's how stuff gets better not worse, (as the dishonest IPCC would have you believe).   
He had been in power barely a month when Tony Abbott oversaw the sacking of two departmental heads who were the driving forces behind climate change “initiatives”. The scrapping of the Climate Commission, which had been established to provide public information on the “horrific effects” of, and potential solutions to, “global warming”.
The Climate Change Authority responsible for investment in renewable energy was also abolished. Only for most of it to be reinstated by the dimwit Malcolm Turnbull.
It’s a shame the Turnbull government hasn’t yet seen the light and stopped pandering to the inane Left’s outrageous aims.
The incessant footage of glaciers falling off into the sea does not indicate warming, in fact the opposite, as glacial ice increases at its source pressuring the old ice into floating bergs.

Senator Pauline Hanson arrived on the reef to show how healthy it was at the same time as the Green clown fish arrived on a small area that was bleached to show how "damaged" it was.
It's really quite laughable as a fresh army of undergraduate marine biologists stream out of publicly funded universities intent on creating themselves jobs... No reef damage, no jobs! No government trough to put their pretty little snouts in!
Donald Trump has set off alarm bells at the UN by denouncing “Climate Change” as an economy destroying fraud. Abbott has said much the same, so it’s no wonder the UN-adoring stick insect, Julie Bishop, blurted out that, “there is no vacancy” when asked if former PM Tony Abbott should have a place on the front bench.

At least the clownfish think it's safe to keep breeding an oversupply of
overpaid university clowns in bleached coral.
The Way I See least Abbott would bring to the front bench some sanity to the warming debate that went missing at the same time as his knifing was arranged by his deputy, the stick insect. The problem now is an ineffective Turnbull and there is an insufficient (or just plain scared) number of Party roomers to kick him out and replace him in time for the next election with someone who has Australia at heart.
But yippee, it looks I will disappoint a lot of people and live long enough to see the world change as the loony Left is put back into its mouldy crypt for another 50 years until it can come up with something more convincing than “climate change”, wind mills and solar driven airliners.
Oh well, at least I can be certain my grandkids will see it.

Finally, Warmists Find a Real Threat !

Whatever else he does, President-elect Donald Trump can be counted on to shoo those green snouts out of the climate-scare trough -- first by repealing Obama's executive orders, then by re-directing from the UN to domestic environmental concerns. It's a beautiful thing.

“I’m feeling very flat today,” snuffled Amanda McKenzie, CEO of Tim Flannery’s crowd-funded Climate Council.  As she should, given that  President-elect Trump will  end  the trillion-dollar renewable-energy scam so beloved by the council.
McKenzie continues, “Progress on climate change can feel hopeless and it’s tempting to give up and turn away.” But instead, she rattles the tin for donations of $10 a month “to allow us to undertake some massive projects next year that will power communities and everyday Australians to spearhead our renewable energy transition.” Good luck with that, Amanda.
Throughout the Western world, green lobbies are likewise oscillating between despair and self-delusion over the Trump election.
Trump’s agenda – as per his election website –  includes:
  • Unleash America’s $50 trillion in untapped shale, oil, and natural gas reserves, plus hundreds of years in clean coal reserves.
  • Declare American energy dominance a strategic economic and foreign policy goal of the United States.
  • Become, and stay, totally independent of any need to import energy from the OPEC cartel or any nations hostile to our interests.
  • Rescind all job-destroying Obama executive actions.
  • Reduce and eliminate all barriers to responsible energy production, creating at least a half million jobs a year, $30 billion in higher wages, and cheaper energy.
Trump says Obama’s onslaught of regulations has been a massive self-inflicted economic wound denying  Americans access to the energy wealth sitting under their feet: “This is the American People’s treasure, and they are entitled to share in the riches.” ore than that, the president-elect’s  common-sense policies make the 20,000 climate careerists and activists in Marrakech, led by Vice-President John Kerry, seem comically irrelevant. They were supposed to be implementing the feeble Paris climate accord – notwithstanding that China has just announced a 19% expansion of coal capacity over the next five years.
But with the US leadership no longer concerned about climate doom, the rationale for these annual talk-fests (22  to date) has evaporated. Robert McNally, energy consultant and former George W. Bush adviser,  says climate change policy “is going to come to a screeching halt. The Paris Agreement from a U.S. perspective is a dead agreement walking.”
The agreement now has only the EU’s backing in terms of actual and significant cuts to emissions, although Australia is also now pledging to do its tiny bit for foot-shooting insanity. The EU’s continued subsidies to renewables will merely worsen its competitiveness vis a vis the new energy powerhouse across the Atlantic.
Trump has pledged not only to rip up the Paris deal, but to withdraw all US climate funding to the UN. The UN climate fund is supposed to build to $100b a year for Third World mendicants. Obama has given $500m so far and pledged $3 billion to the UN climate fund,  but Trump will divert those billions to domestic environmental projects such as the Florida Everglades. As he told supporters,  “We’re spending hundreds of billions of dollars. We don’t even know who’s doing what with the money.”
Obama, unable to get his climate legislation through the Republican-controlled Congress, used regulatory powers instead to get the job done. Trump can now neutralize those efforts simply by reversal or non-enforcement of the regulations.
One of the climate war’s best-kept secrets is that there is no real constituency for renewables, other than vested interests and noisy green groups.[1] That’s why both candidates gave global warming so little prominence in the campaign. Nearly a third of Americans think the global warming scare is a total hoax.
It’s a similar story internationally: a UN annual poll last month (9.7m respondents) had “action on climate change” rating dead last among 16 issues, with top ratings going to education, health care and jobs. Even people from the richest nations rated climate action only 10th. The poll in 2015 got the same result.

Trump’s personal view on climate-change science is that  CO2 is probably causing some warming but the scare is vastly exaggerated.[2] He will therefore reverse Obama’s assault on the coal and coal-fired power sectors and give them a better chance to compete with natural gas.
Trump’s choice of key climate advisers is a nightmare for the warmist establishment. To transition the US Environmental Protection Agency from climate activism, he’s picked outspoken skeptic , director of the Center for Energy & Environment at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute, Myron Ebell. The CEI is equivalent to Australia’s Institute of Public Affairs.

Ebell laughs at his leftist critics and cites to congress his Greenpeace listing as a leading “climate criminal”.  He thinks warming will not be a problem for one or two centuries; meanwhile we should expand access to all types of energy – on an unsubsidized basis.
Canadian climate scientist Tim Ball told a Melbourne seminar this week that Trump is getting science advice from satellite meteorologist Dr Roy Spencer. Spencer’s  data has demonstrated that orthodox climate models have exaggerated actual warming by a factor of two to three. His own readings from satellites showed no significant warming for the 21 years up to the 2015-16 El Nino spike. He emphasises the vast uncertainties about climate forecasting and the still-unknown roles of natural forces.
Dr Spencer, who holds a NASA Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal for global temperature monitoring, believes  the near-universal funding of climate research by governments causes a bias towards catastrophic forecasting, since governments won’t fund non-problems. He wants funding to be at arm’s length from political interests. For the Department of Energy, Trump has picked energy lobbyist Mike McKenna, with ties to the industry-backed American Energy Alliance and Institute for Energy Research.
The Way I See It......Trump’s election is rocking the climate-scare industry to its foundations. Four decades of madness is coming to an end.
