Christopher Monckton’s denial that climate change is human induced is like a snake oil salesman telling you what is easier to hear. Only that this salesman is paid for by those who have a vested interest in people not facing reality says Tracey Carpenter President of Bathurst Community Climate Action Network.

She says the antics of the British classics scholar and hereditary peer would be amusing if his views were not so dangerous.

Come to Cafe Kai in George St. for a meal, social interaction and a talk about Water by local environmentalist Ashley Bland.
 Click HERE for more details.

Water - whither?

The next Cafe Chew (August) will be devoted entirely to the subject of water.

It is a hot topic locally and will be nationally too with the Murray Darling Water Management Plan due in the next few weeks and the interest groups are lining up to stake their claims.

I have attached a couple of documents to help those who are interested become better informed so that our discussion can be more fruitful.

Climate Warming for real

 I am back in Dawson City, sitting on my verandah overlooking the Yukon River.  Let me say right off, the Yukon River is a real river not like those muddy trickles that pass for rivers in Australia.  More water would go by my verandah in an average hour than goes down the Macquarie in a month - or two.  But the Yukon River is not looking good.  It's low, very low.
