Alan Jones' despicable utterance.

Ms Gillard and Mr Swan:
Yet to apologise for stealing democracy process.
Memos have been sent to this NCTCS blogger to support a ban on advertisers on the 2GB Alan Jones Breakfast Show.

Surely, as Alan Jones fights for all Australians against  the Creeping Socialism/Communism of the Green Gillard Government, it would be better to cast a vote for Australia's future and tell the advertisers to continue to support an Australian broadcaster who, unfortunately repeated a despicable remark mentioned to him before he addressed a young Liberal's meeting, but still promotes an Australia free of the throttling Socialism/Communism of our present government.

Alan Jones was stupid to make that despicable statement. 

STUPID!


He has apologised for that STUPID, despicable remark.

But should we forget this despicable remark made by Wayne Swan in order to win an election (only just)?

 

OR - should we forget this despicable remark made by Julia Gillard  in order tto win an election (only just)? 



Alan Jones' despicable utterance only affects his small audience.

Gillard and Swan, with their deception, could have swung an election that affects the whole country and their economic inadequacy will  strangle Australians for years to come.

Meanwhile the Green Gillard Government continue to creep toward Communist ideals by, via Finkelstein, trying to close down any opposition; any thought like the communistic throttling of free opinion.


Have Julia Gillard and Wayne Swan apologised for CONNING the electorate prior to the last election?

I know that Jones is contrite, has realised he was stupid and has apologised.

When will we expect an apology from Julia Gillard and Wayne Swan?

Smallest Sunspot Cycle since 1906.

NASA Solar Physics predicts (Link)

The current prediction for Sunspot Cycle 24 gives a smoothed sunspot number maximum of about 75 in the Fall of 2013. The smoothed sunspot number (for 2012/02) is already nearly 67 due to the strong peak in late 2011 so the official maximum will be at least this high. We are currently well over three years into Cycle 24. The current predicted and observed size makes this the smallest sunspot cycle since Cycle 14 which had a maximum of 64.2 in February of 1906.

The MWP at the Tivoli North Bay of New York's Hudson Estuary

The MWP at the Tivoli North Bay of New York's Hudson Estuary (CO2 Science report)

Background
The authors write that "the mid-Hudson region contains freshwater peatland archives that have not been investigated," and they therefore state that "there is a need to identify this base-line information to assess past anthropogenic activities and climatic patterns in relation to projected shifts in climate and vegetation in the Mid-Hudson Valley region," which they indicate is an important resource for over 10 million people.

What was done
Sritrairat et al. explored, as they describe it, "how climate and human impacts have influenced plant ecology, invasive species expansion, habitat loss, carbon storage, and nutrient dynamics over the past millennium based on the multiproxy analysis of sediment cores using palynology, macrofossil, sedimentological, and geochemical analyses," while working with marsh sediment cores obtained at the National Estuarine Research Reserve at Tivoli Bays on the Hudson Estuary, New York, USA.

What it means
Acknowledging that "while there is a debate if the MWP is a global phenomenon as the warming is not synchronized at all sites around the globe," Sritrairat et al. write that "many paleoclimatic records suggest widespread climatic anomalies, such as parts of Europe (Mangini et al., 2005), Tasmania (Cook et al., 1991), Asia (Yang et al., 2002), and Africa (Alin and Cohen, 2003) during the same time period." And so it is that the case for the existence of a global MWP continues to grow as demonstrated by our regular reporting of a new study that testifies of the MWP's occurrence at a new and different location.

A history of vegetation, sediment and nutrient dynamics at Tivoli North Bay, Hudson Estuary, New York (Link)

Abstract

We conduct a stratigraphic paleoecological investigation at a Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve (HRNERR) site, Tivoli Bays, spanning the past 1100 years. Marsh sediment cores were analyzed for ecosystem changes using multiple proxies, including pollen, spores, macrofossils, charcoal, sediment bulk chemistry, and stable carbon and nitrogen isotopes. The results reveal climatic shifts such as the warm and dry Medieval Warm Period (MWP) followed by the cooler Little Ice Age (LIA), along with significant anthropogenic influence on the watershed ecosystem. A five-fold expansion of invasive species, including Typha angustifolia and Phragmites australis, is documented along with marked changes in sediment composition and nutrient input. During the last century, a ten-fold sedimentation rate increase due to land-use changes is observed. The large magnitude of shifts in vegetation, sedimentation, and nutrients during the last few centuries suggest that human activities have made the greatest impact to the marshes of the Hudson Estuary during the last millennium. Climate variability and ecosystem changes similar to those observed at other marshes in northeastern and mid-Atlantic estuaries, attest to the widespread regional signature recorded at Tivoli Bays.
