Welcome to Global Warming.
For the first time since I have been in this area, around 20 years, I was greeted with this.

Please create more CO2

Looks absolutely beautiful Poddy.

We had snow a few weeks back. We sometimes get snow here (Central West NSW), but we had BIG SNOW fall twice in 8 days.....
It was beautiful.
Taken from my loungeroom window, my front garden.   :)




The last pic, it was blowing and blowing....

 Snow in odd places and shortly after 2pm on monday, Melbourne hit 32.8 degrees, making it the hottest maximum temperature at this time of year since records began
But it didn't end there. The temperature in the city went on to peak at 34.4 degrees just after 4.30pm, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

unseasonable heat and snow .. more to look forward to as well . Climate seems to be changing ?

I think that climate change is definitely accelerating and I think it's due to human activity on the planet.

Deniers like to laugh at the global warming theory, but I don't think the extreme temperatures and freak weather conditions are necessarily attributable to the temperature of the globe.

 there is little doubt left . i try and avoid the terms denier and alarmist as they are used for the purposes of political agenda (one that involves shifting as much coal as possible before it reaches it's use-by date (which was around 1970 )  :)

But FL the climate has ALWAYS changed and it always will.

By the way do you REALLY think a tax will alter the weather??

 Hi poddy , ''a tax wont change the weather '' is probably on the face of it a true statement . But if you look at the problem from a strategic point of view and ask "will a tax change behavior ?" and the answer ''yes'' is more than likely correct also.
Direct action involves gifting power producers tax , the government pays them to lower emissions and the money comes from our pockets .Call me a  leftie but i really think they should pay to pollute as we do under the current arrangements .

FL historic and conclusive evidence has shown that a tax on a commodity has little or no effect on its use, example, in my living memory the tax on tobacco and booze has skyrocketed by a factor or 20 times. Did it modify its usage, Nup.
Petroleum is another candidate

Carbon credits trading was/is a scheme devised to sell what? OH that is right NOTHING, good trick if you can get the gullible to swallow it
